    Quoted from Vdrums:

    What JJP really needs is a second shift of workers. Keep that production line humming 16 hours a day (maybe one with new games and one with older titles - I think I read they have 2 production lines?

    No, the have proven night shifts are never as productive as day. You only run night shifts if you need to keep equipment running 24/7 to maximize its output.

    What JJP needs is to keep both lines busy everyday so they can keep a senior talented and trained workforce for years, that’s how they improve speed and build quality.

    That only works if you have steady sales, and the ability (money) to hire more management (overhead) to oversee the second shift operation so quality doesn't suffer. I don't think JJP has the sales volume to justify that. If you do not have the sales, then you are just going to yo-yo your workers and have to lay them off every couple weeks. That is not how you keep decent semi-skilled workers around. If you read between the lines, it seems like some JJPOTC quality problems are a result of some unskilled labor pains. I don't think even Stern runs a second shift...do they?

    I bet if they had the orders rolling in they would... they need more games more often.

    Stern is just killing everyone as they produce games like every single time you blink your eyes. JJ also needs to stop doing themes that Stern already recently did as with Hobbit and Pirates. Lord of the Rings Hobbit no difference... Willy Wonka people are excited about because it hasn't been done yet.

    I'm excited about Wonka that is for sure!

    I disagree with this statement. In the 24 hour manufacturing facilities I have been involved with, the off shifts tend to produce more per man-hour due to not being micro-managed to death by the daytime salaried employees trying to justify their jobs. Productivity depends a lot on workplace culture, and what acronym of the month upper management is trying to shove their way to make it look like they did something this year. (LSS, KanBan, Lean, etc)

    Back when I was a computer operator, I _always_ preferred the 2nd and 3rd shifts, when there were no up-and-coming junior programmers nosing around trying to make sure _their_ pet project ran before the Order Status report.

    Quoted from drfrightner:

    Lets start with WOZ... that changed the entire industry. No game before it had full blown TV's in them, complete movie clips, two upper playfields, amazing artwork, complete LED and the list goes on and on... what other game created back in 2013 is still being made today due to demand for it? None! This single game created the whole LE market.
    Dialed In: First game with an ap, camera's which take your picture, connection on the front to plug in headphones straight from the factory. Forget about the amazing graphics they created, no one has ever done that before. With Dialed In they didn't use movie clips they created all that stuff from scratch.
    Hobbit was the first game ever to feature a SCREEN under the glass so you had a screen above and below the glass. The integration of graphics and movie clips was on a level never before seen.
    Pirates all original shots, first ever moving upper playfield, video cameras, never before has someone used a screen to give you directions for the game, prior and still its just a paper card.
    Lets not forget all the amazing code out of the box... I love my Batman 66 but it took years to get the code with JJ its out of the box.

    DI JJP best game with fewer primary modes than the first two games then having bob secondary modes. The Bob mode kill the game for me you feel selfy mode is innovation that and emoji mode just reminds me the game is about a phone.

    TH was the first to have an LCD screen under glass but DMD games had DMD screens under glass innovation meh

    POTC not the first ever moving playfield

    Code out of box TH was not highly spoken of for quite some time till code was polished

    The BOB modes are all just silly fun, with currently _very_ few points involved, comparatively speaking. They're nice if you can get a disaster mode or MB going at the same time, but should otherwise pretty much be treated as something for the other players to watch while you're playing.

    Quoted from PanzerFreak:

    There's also the cost of developing high quality animations for a larger screen and integrating the animations with code, music, etc.

    I think that's a bigger cost than the screen. They have incredibly polished UI and animations on all their titles, and that ain't cheap to develop.

    Quoted from vireland:

    This is true.

    Just musing.. I'm surprised at how many people think/feel that Stern have nailed the UI on their games since they have switched to an LCD screen. I don't think it's terrible, but I'm sitting there awaiting my turn watching the screen on a Stern game and I always think how much better it could be. It seems like they don't know what to do with it half the time. As a cohesive "art package" I find Stern has a long way to go. But, if you compare it to JJP, JJP's screen is just wonderful. Laid out well, consistent and makes sense for the most part. Maybe I just don't what Stern is going for..?

    Stern is going for "just good enough." Always. And sometimes they don't even hit that. Remember, in the B/W days, they were the sad second choice company. They only became the leader because they were all that was left.

    Very true.... I agree w/ this statement..

    I think a lot of it has to do with a super aggressive release schedule. They don't have the time to bake them all the way.

    Where is the Willy Wonka and JJP in all this Stern talk? Or did I misread the thread Title?

    So true. I heard (i hope im wrong), the reveal will be June which is still Spring but barely.

    Why wait for Announcement?

    Texas show would be a perfect time !
    Anything but Wonka Im in

    Because past delays taught them to announce when the games are coming down the line.

    I’m already down on Wonka Lloyd.

    This summer is fine. I need time to explore Potc!

    I'd take a Wonka Lloyd over a Willy Wonka anyday!

    I'm sure WLTG : ) already would have modes concocted involving tequila, drunk monkeys, and his ever lovin' pooch side kick too!

    I'm totally down with them waiting until they have some built and can start delivering within a month of the reveal. Makes WAY more sense than letting hype die down over 6-12 months after the announcement.

    See what happens when a game is not shown. All the excitement fades away.

    Trust me. It will be MUCH more exciting when they announce Wonka and then start shipping it right away

    JJP would benefit from some “accidental leaks” a few months out *wink*wink*

    Quoted from Guinnesstime:

    JJP would benefit from some “accidental leaks” a few months out *wink*wink*

    And then something happens like game specific parts that arrive don't meet spec and have to be reordered and then *wink*wink* we're a half year or more out again and same old cycle continues.

    Better do like Stern does. Brief leak, picture or name. And then a couple days later pictures of it coming down the assembly line.

    LTG : )

    #1224 2 days ago

    Info max 30 days before shipping, as a fan I would prefer that. Half the battle is expectations. The other half is delivering absolute magic. Get those two things right... profit.

    #1225 2 days ago

    Do you notice how nobody is questioning Pat Lawlor’s ability this time.I guess it’s because Quantum City is so f$&ckin awesome!Hate theme or not it is top ten of all time.I hope Wonka is just as great with a great theme.

    It's worth what it's worth, but someone posted the trailer on Instagram, implied that JJP would release Toy Story pinball and JJP replied twice on it with a wink and a like. I say it's an unofficial rumor official confirmation, but I may be a dreamer !

    Trailer looks good but, man, do they really have to show the whole movie in the trailer nowadays?

    Shit if YBR is the ULTIMATE WOZ then I’ll have to buy it and if WONKA hits it out the park WOZ style my budget for 2019 is going to go quick.

    Supposedly it will be MORE expensive, so maybe they have some new mechs in it to make it even crazier? I can't imagine how...

    Pixar's pretty good about giving a meaty trailer without giving away too much of the actual movie.
