Quoted from genex:

Thanks for the input - gonna go buy an old school 2.0 USB and hope it works - the operator I am working with this on had mentioned he has a lot of issues updating the code on the JJP games so this must be why. Guess if we find one that works we'll designate that for all his JJP machines
Updated Houdini on one of the USBs we tried for JJP and it worked fine so must be one of those compatibility things...

These are the drives I'm using and having no issues so far:

You can get the kingston drives at Fedex office stores and maybe walgreens or CVS.

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

USB 3.0 drives will absolutely not work. Different brands use different drivers, too, and the game doesn’t have every single one loaded. Keep trying - I have about 10 USB drives and only -one- ever seems to work. That’s for JJP games and my Houdini

Kind of reminds me of Revenge from Mars. Thank god I still had an old win95 laptop hanging around or I wouldn't have been able to update the software. This could be a problem in 10 years.

I've had zero problems using this with a micro SD card for my JJP stuff, and using windows 10.

Appreciate all the help - yeah my operator friend was like "at least this isn't as bad as updating Pinball2000"

I had problems until I did 8 gig 2.0

#456 1 year ago

cool can't really find 8GB 2.0s in San Francisco since we're a tech town so I will try the ghetto grocery store and see what they have. Found some 16GB 2.0 so will try two of those later - hopefully they work - we had an 8GB 2.0 we did try but that one didn't work for some reason.... I'll post what brand works here if/when we are finally successful

Did you try plugging the USB stick directly into the back of the computer? Bypassing the long cable to the front?

#458 1 year ago

OK got it to work finally - used Sandisk 16GB 2.0 I found at a Walgreens since the computer stores all had too large and fast (3.0) USBs. Gonna save this drive for just JJP updates!

What's going to happen when technology moves on and you can no longer get the necessary USB sticks . I suppose stock up now.

Just hang on to the one you use when you patch it. I just keep mine in the hobbit coin tray area and get it when I need to patch.

Sounds like a good 8GB USB 2 stick is the best to have - get one or two of those and you're good.

Try repartitioning a larger one to have an 8Gb partition and see if that works.

Amazon has a million of them in bulk if needed...

Does anyone have an editable copy of the Hobbit Rulesheet? I have a PDF version that is 27 pages long from v0.6 Aug 2016 (https://images.pinside.com/8/79/08/879082bb3784112202e479a06ed37c010ddd4c01.pdf). I'd like to update this with full information, but cannot find an editable copy, as starting from the PDF is a mess. Anyone have a version that I can edit/update and then contribute back?

Contact this guy. He offered his in word form. I would love an updated version!

Saw somewhere that there was a code 3.10.2 floating around. Can’t seem to find any details though. Not on JJP website, maybe just a beta to fix a few bugs.

All jjp games are getting wifi compatibility updates.
