Mantis makes great products and I have them in every game I've ever had with a new playfield. There may be some variation in DI playfields because I just couldn't get mine to sit right. I ended up so frustrated with rejects I pulled it out. I'd rather enjoy the game to it's fullest and take a hit with some minor scoop wear than have a pristine game that was frustrating and not enjoyable. YMMV, some have had issues, others haven't.

Dialed In now showing OOS at all levels through JJP.

Distributors seem to still have them. JJP probably just got rid of their factory inventory.

Yes I’m ordering an LE from Zach today. Typically when they are gone, they can only come back out with an SE or do they make more LEs?

I don't want to state anything is normal, but just look at WoZ... how many new versions did JJP pump out? 4 or 5?

They all had different names, not SE.

My DialedIn Phone screen broke... While I am waiting to get a new screen, still wanted to play! So decided to use a Real Phone instead... Still working on it but I am making progress... Yea that's a iphone you see in the picture! I connected my phone thru wifi / network to the phone display of my dialedin using VNC! Still need to make some adjustment, it's only a Proof of concept at this point...

So.. as we have a bluetooth dongle, do you think we'll get an update that gives bluetooth audio ?

And good it's out ofnl stock finally.. maybe prices on used machines will start to increase now

I believe JJP mention that their bluetooth/wifi new feature would make it to their other games. But yea the system is capable of it, and you could "hack" your machine right now to add this feature.

#11059 12 days ago

The Bluetooth audio is indeed already working on all JJP's machine for beta testers
Gnr is the first to include it as an official feature.
Same for wifi updates.

That’s nuts, do the videos play

#11062 11 days ago

Ok!! I officially paid for my new DILE today and super pumped as it’s my first pin. Some temptation to do a GNR but I’ve played DI and know how good it plays which was important to me. Does anyone know if it’s code complete? I know it’s 3 years old now, but are they still improving the code. (I know the code is pretty awesome already!)

It is complete. There’s always the chance of a little more with JJP but everything major is in it and no killer bugs.

#11064 11 days ago

I doubt they could afford to build this machine again for a price the market would accept. Good buy.

#11065 11 days ago
Quoted from Kenswift:

That’s nuts, do the videos play

Yea the video play, but it's a bit slow, but I did't optimize it yet, there is some software library missing for the optimisation(I am just starting at it). I have been having issue connecting the machine over wifi(WPA). I am not part of the beta so I don't know if all the module are loaded or properly included by the default kernel. I have a ethernet cable going thru the coin door(So no way to play with coin door open), I tought of removing the grill on the bottom of the cabinet to pass the ethernet cable. I wanted to add a wifi access point in the cabinet by hooking it on the service power plug but the playfield service bar/holder block the power plug... I could had plugged the network cable on the ethernet port on the PC but I just opted plugging a USB hub/network adaptor on the front usb port used for bluetooth. I was experimenting this morning on that and got busy with other stuff. I added a user on the machine, and installed openssh on it which I use to remote control it. I also installed x11vnc(Which is old), I was't able to compile it properly (lack of library). Work in progress...

Ok I just tested in it game play and it fairly smooth... Trying to setup up a other phone or camera to record...

#11069 11 days ago

Yea after a few game played, I removed the panel for Game redemption / CC unit or bill unit and routed the ethernet cables thru there and it's snappy... Really happy about the hack... I Ordered 3 screens / controller, but and I think I'll just install one of my old phone instead... I'll record a video later today...

I guess I could program that, dunno if the drone will be able to fly with the machine to go pick up the pizza... In some way the Ninja got it easier... they got all those sewage they can navigate thru to get you the best NYC pizza experience. Does Fry Electronic deliver pizza?

Thinking about joining the club! Anything I need to look at specifically when buying a used one? There are a few out here with 1k plays how much does that impact the sale? Do balls, flipper rubbers etc need to be replaced?

Any help is appreciated!

#11077 7 days ago

I'm selling my Chrome Candy Blueberry shooter rod that I swapped out for a custom shooter rod. It looks beautiful on Dialed In LE and ships free to the US.
$50.

Replacing the balls should be done every couple of hundred games. Replacing the rubbers is an opportunity to make the machine your own. Change out the colours to how you like it. I used mostly Titans. Change the flipper rubbers frequently for a change.
Check the report for errors. Also do a device check. Tests>devices . Stuff like the Theatre ball flick back can be adjusted.
I can’t see this game made again or anything like it. There are too many mechs in it to be a machine sold profitably at a reasonable price. The day will come when people will look back at opportunity lost.

Yeah I think with them not having to pay for a license, all that money went into the game. This is the game that got Pat out of retirement and he worked on it for 3 years. So well done. Those orange rubbers looks great btw

Dialed in is a Lawlor masterpiece for sure. You can clearly see the wizard blocks inspiration in the playfield which just makes everything that much cooler.

Or you can not worry and enjoy the game. I have a friend who is still routing machines from the 90s with original balls, and the PFs are just fine. That was when the clear was 90% thinner... I examine balls now and then. If they have a gouge, I'll replace them. I'd put my new machines up against anyone else's. They look great!

Carbon steel balls will resist becoming magnetised better than ordinary steel balls. They also can be subject to denting. If you want odd shaped balls in your machine that’s fine, I like round ones.

I said I check them. I guess I should have clarified that dents count along with gouges. Every couple hundred games? Nah...

My DILE arrives Tuesday and I can’t wait. I got a chance to play GNR yesterday thinking I might have some regrets because I could have gotten it for $500 more and although it was fun, I still liked DILE better. I even liked the new Avengers or JP better. It was beautiful and hands down some of the best animations and playfield I have ever seen, but too many multiballs and add a balls for me to want to own. If I have a multi pin collection I would own it but I can have two max.

That is very interesting to me. I had a GnR LE on order from the release date. I have never had the chance to play DI or any other JJP game for that matter and have wanted a DI for a while. Just yesterday I had my GnR order changed to get a DIle instead. I can't wait to get it but now I at least know that someone else had the same feelings and suspicions as me.

For sure. I think GNR fits in nice in a multiple cab collection but for me, I would choose dialed in and wonka over it for a two or three pin. Dialed in will also make you a better pinball player too.

I have yet to play gnr, but from the very first moment of playing a dialed in, I knew I absolutely had to own it. My first jjp and have had it well over a year now. Still love it. May never beat it.

I'm with you jorant. I'd been interested in Dialed In since first hearing/seeing it in 2017. I finally got to play it on location last August. It was a knockout and perfect fit for me. Was able to purchased a used LE the following month

Same ! I put my TSPP for sell to buy a GnR, then I saw a bunch of gameplay videos, got scared by the permanent multiballs and went to buy a DILE. I'll go get it in a couple weeks and I can't wait !

It took me a while to realize how fantastic DI is, I didn't like it much at first, then I got one game where it all came together and I saw that the game flows like no other. It doesn't reward instantly like other JJP games, it's a game of sequences IMO if you get it right you get the score and the real fun the game can provide.

I got hooked up to it ever since.

#11098 1 day ago

My app still works. I have been playing DI with my phone on the glass and have been utilizing the Big Bang button on my phone. I wish this feature would have been carried forward. It is also fun to sometimes utilize the flipper option. Such a good game!!

If the stand up guy is left you can also bank it off of the drones but I prefer shooting the right stand up of the theatre.

#11100 22 hours ago

I am hoping that my new DI will be here this week sometime. I have never played it so I have been watching a bunch of videos to get the basic idea of how it plays. Many of the videos I have found are 2-3 years old. Does the theater magnet still capture and throw the ball upwards around the loop like the sanctum shot on the shadow on the latest software?
