Why? What did you hear? Don’t look at me like that?
Joe Katz is a valuable guy who posts here sometimes and appears on the live streams. He's a great guy too. He and Ted and to a lesser extent everybody else are contributing to the game.
Quoted from delt31:
DI was an absolute flop and I enjoyed it! I don't think it ever rebounded from the terrible press.
Absolute flop? It sold and still sells even though it's been off the line since before POTC started. It depends on your definition of flop I suppose. It had a lame reveal stream (I was there in person). The event was better than it came off on the stream but I agree a very slow start compared to Pirates. No argument there. It had a nice groundswell once people actually got to see the game and their friends started getting them. It became a consistent seller and enjoyed a semi long-ish production run, longer than Hobbit which preceded it and longer than Pirates which followed it. So flop I don't know. WOZ will never be topped in sales totals, certainly not by DI unless it comes back to the line again (no license) but DI has done okay so far and who knows if it may return for another run. Just MHO.
It won’t be long now folks. SEs first I think everyone knows that - you’ll hear that production has begun in the very near future.
The upper slingshot is under the black pearl access ramp. The guys have to clip off the top of the metal front blade so it doesn’t catch on the bottom of the plastic ramp. Yours may be caught there so take a look.
Lights - under the playfield find the BAG board and look for the mini-usb connector on it (its the only mini usb under the playfield) usually a tie wrap is used to try to hold it straight into the socket but it can still fall out or get misaligned so unplug and reseat it.
Now listen I wouldn't normally post in threads like this one other than answering questions because my opinion is obviously biased and I make no secret of that fact so take this for what it's worth - I got my Wonka home and have been playing it a lot - installed 1.07p this morning and everyone here knows that I have to help tech support this game and therefore I shouldn't try to sway opinions and I'm not shilling; I remember way back when I offered my opinion on how nicely DI felt to shoot and how I hadn't played a game that felt like that one since the NGG days and I was immediately lambasted for offering my opinion when obviously I was clueless. SO factoring that in here let me offer this - I've been doing this for a very long time (collecting and playing I mean) and this is one of those "new pin in the house" days that always makes me happy. I'm enjoying this game very much although it is humbling me score-wise at the moment. On my recent NJ trip I also got the opportunity to spend some time with a friend playing his Guardians Pro and I very much enjoyed that also - sometimes as I get older (which is by the minute) I just like to play and not think too hard about tech support and how this or that might be to fix and how people in the world will like or dislike a game and so on. This game fills me with joy even though the movie isn't among my favorites (as I know it is for many Pinsiders from what I've read). I'm enjoying it and trying to recapture the feeling I had before everything else got involved owing to my profession. Is this the be all and end all of games and we can all go home now? No. I am enjoying it very much though. I hope new pin day never becomes a thing of the past. Okay, carry on, thanks...
The groove near the top is normal on all production Wonkas - you can take a paint marker if you like and flow some paint into it or you can if you like get a small piece of t-molding and fit it in there. Go over all the connections in the head and see if something came loose in shipping.
