What do you need to hit to light the ball lock?

For Big Bang, it lights when you complete a mode?

When are SIM cards collectible?

My high is 2.1 mil, but I’ve mostly focused on combos and completing the disaster modes.

#752 1 year ago
Quoted from Lermods:

What lights the ball lock?

According to the rulesheet: After playing at least one disaster mode you must shoot both ramps to light lock and then lock a ball via the upper ramp (or Crazy Bob’s for the first lock of the first multiball only).

#753 1 year ago

Big bang is lit by hitting side targerts with upper flipper. Sim is lit when u finish a mode amoung a few other ways.

#754 1 year ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

Big banh is It by hitting side targerts with upper flipper.

I've heard of this target as referred to as the "Cousin It" target, since it is in about the same place as the Cousin It target on Addams Family.

Are either of the wizards modes multiball modes, or are they single ball modes?

You shoot the ramps(left,right)= lights Lock ball(side ramp). Lock 2 balls = 1st multiball.
2nd multiball & up= more ramp shots & requires 3 balls locked to start M-Ball. Phone scoop is shot to start all multiballs, except crazy Bob m-balls.

Big Bang is lit by shooting the "light Big Bang" targets(2). Similar to TAF. You then shoot Big Bang targets to collect it. Save Big Bang(50,000) during a mode! It automatically completes current mode & lights the Sim Card shot. Shoot Sim Card to Collect (100,000 +multipliers).

Sim Cards are available after any mode or achievement is 100% completed during the time given.

#756 1 year ago

The first LOCK lights automatically after the first disaster is played. From then on, u need to hit the left and right ramps to light it.

It gets harder, too - the first time, hitting them at any time in either order works. It will ramp up to needing to hit them in a particular order, needing to hit them as a combo, needing to hit them in a particular order as a combo, and then (finally) needing to hit them in a particular order as a combo to light LOCK for a _very_ short length of time.

Big Bang is probably one of my favorite pinball things, ever; you can have failed horribly throughout one of the disasters and redeem yourself with one (difficult & dangerous) shot. BB during a multiball scores all hit jackpots. And, there is _nothing_ nicer than hitting Big Bang to finish a mode and having the ball drop straight down to collect the SIM card.

Both the wizard modes are _serious_ multiballs.

#757 1 year ago

No clue on the wizard modes as ill never see them the way my game is set up .....

You can push your turn your multiball off by hitting both flippers when your phone starts right right after a lock. It will turn off and you can start a mode, add a ball to that MB.

Big Bang also collects all lit Jackpots in MB, or all JP + finishes mode when running together.

I had my best game yest the other day in which I had 4 Sim cards lit/stacked and cashed them all in But of course I didn;t get to armegeddon or showdown so whatever

EDIT: I still the thing the BB sjhould be used to score a Sim Card if lit...but I don't find the BB shot dangerous at all.

#759 1 year ago
Quoted from JWJr:

There is one thing nicer - when you hit Big Bang and the knocker fires simultaneously for a free game... then drops into the SIM hole

That is just a spectacular series of events.

Yes its blinding and i usually lose the ball lol

The SIM card unlighting when a ball drains is just _mean_. You can turn that off in the Settings, but I respect Pat too much to do that.

The BB shot danger depends on where the QED is; I've had a number of perfect BB shots come back SDTM.

Yeah I refuse to turn on sim holdover as well. Without becoming annoyed/scared/angry and flailing away at that sim card hole it would be a totally diff'rent game.

Interesting...never had much issue with BB. I'm going to try not to notice it or it will probably start happening all the time.

Thats what I did...zero chipping or ghosting...

How tough is the install for the two scoops?

I'm really tempted here! I have a TOM that I was planning to replace the pf on, but maybe I'll let it go and just put my money into a DI. What to do, what to do!?!?!

Maybe this will help.

If you buy one of the more recently produced games, they come with two scoop protectors installed at the factory. Granted, they are JJP protectors and not Cliffy protectors.

Quoted from brucipher:

The JJP ones strangely do not cover the back of the SIM card hole, which gets the crap bashed out of it from hard shots from the upper right flipper.

#767 1 year ago

guys - I need to trim a little off of the phone scoop cliffy. I realized it's grazing the ball upon exit. I've already turned the part that was catching up and it shoots fine and offers perfect protection. What is the best thing to trim/cut this extra metal off? I tried normal scissors but not strong enough. Need a small but strong precision pair. Any recs?

btw - cliffy on my GB also caused some air balls so I ended up taking them off.....

#768 1 year ago

Grind it off or tin snips would be my guess. Snips are not graceful though

I'd leave it alone. The ball action will bash the protector into the perfect shape after a few weeks of playing.

#771 1 year ago

Do the "pops" get stronger(voltage) as you level them up? I swear they do.

Quoted from vireland:

I hear you but I just don't see it happening. That tin material is strong and its not moving back. It was installed perfectly fine too but I'm sick of how it effects the kick out and just by flipping it up and over it's perfect and I still get that protection. I might just leave it flipped over as it's just layered over. Dikes are a good idea. Both interpretations too.

Boy I sure hope the POTC reveal doesn't cannibalize DI sales - on the other hand, if they break out with Dialed In - "special Bob edition" with red powder coat and a free hat, we'll know what happened

#776 1 year ago

Di is totally different pin and im proud to own it....its also loaded with features, magnets, code and plays smoother and very flowy compared to potc imo. All jjp pins are must owns bc they are all so different imo.

I don't have an issue with my cliffy....I did however have an issue with the skill shot cliffy....the switch kept getting hung up so I had to remove it...

I have had a similar thing as well (ball gets stuck on that switch occassionally but it's a little bump to get it off (no tilt usually) so I kept it on.

Again - I love cliffy but there have been some really wonky things happening with these new games after applying his items. GB was the worst as I had to remove the cliffy.

Awesome!! Now get that Hobbit update out !! I can't buy DI until next year so I have to ride out the wizard mode on hobbit!

#782 1 year ago

"Added "rough cut" of Chaos in Quantum City wizard mode (available after six

I guess this is a new wizard mode? Cool. I hope they replaced current still shots of characters with video like the others. Wonder when it will be released.

#783 1 year ago

Code is testing here at expo - ted said in about two weeks I think

#784 1 year ago

Awesome a mini wizard mode....and pics for high score. Also tons of other stuff ... love jjp code evolution.... top notch for sure

Quoted from Pinballomatic:

Two weeks? That's not "VERY soon" in my book, but that's okay. I don't even get my game until this Monday

Always appreciate code communication!

#786 1 year ago

at this point I've tweaked my game so well it's "dialed in". Game plays great, flippers both strong, scoop shot spitting back out perfectly and everything protected. Posted this beauty of a score just last night after work.

I can't wait for the updates either. 2 weeks is def not coming really soon but i will take it!

#787 1 year ago

Stopped by our local pin store the other day while out with the wifey and talked her into playing a few games with me. They pretty much have everything recent set up, and to my surprise, she turns to me while playing DI and says "I like this one!".

And my wife has as much interest in pins as I have in wallpapering.

Look like it's time to move something out, and move something in

#788 1 year ago

Just ordered an le today after watching pirates revel last nite.......got to wait a few weeks for it to be built. Antyone make a topper for Di?

#789 1 year ago

Anyone having ball trough issues? Switch 6 (trough jam) intermittently shows as closed (when there's nothing there), and keeps kicking balls out mid game.

#790 1 year ago
Quoted from cooked71:

Sounds like a loose connection on the opto board or a cold solder joint. Put it in switch test mode and wiggle the opto connector to see if it's intermittent then. If so, spread the pins a little and see if that makes it stay put better.

#791 1 year ago

anybody know the weight of a DI ?

#792 1 year ago
Quoted from branlon8:

Very heavy lol....

#793 1 year ago

well duh, but the jjp homepage makes kind of a secret about it. The guys who will help me carry it downstairs want to know if and how much heavier it is than say bsd.

#794 1 year ago
Quoted from branlon8:

Probably about 300 pounds. Just a little lighter than WoZ.

#795 1 year ago

I know it feels as heavy as woz or hobbit and it's a standard

Ive reseated all the connectors, and traced them all back to the driver board, and reseated those as well. Doesn't seem to trigger if I wiggle any of these.

It's the heaviest non wide body out there. I believe it's heavier than BSD

#798 1 year ago

How is the wear around the magnets on the game ? Is any protection needed like Mylar circles or cliffy around them?

#799 1 year ago
Quoted from branlon8:

The shipping manifest says 140 kg

#800 1 year ago

I’ve had the heavy duty Mylar that is on the magnets - not surrounding - peel up for both magnets. Anybody else seeing this? JJP support is awesome as always and is sending me new mylar. (Thanks Steve Z.!)
