Quoted from Shapeshifter:

The temptation must be there as other games have had special editions.

Not since Hobbit.

I don’t know why people keep beating this drum that JJP limited/collector’s editions will be re-run.

Wishful thinking from people who missed out!

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

If they did 100 SSE ( super special editions ) at $20000, they would sell out, and that is $2m revenue.

Its the Special Slash Edition SSE!

#2903 8 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

SuperCE run confirmed.

I think the combination of you being somewhat of an insider and the fact that you quoted Keith out of the blue five months later made it sound somewhat legitimate. No worries!

However your math is incomplete as you would then have to calculate the possible loss and or reduction in pricing when collectors realize they will constantly get screwed, if that's what they buying for. It's a give and take here and to maintain high or even increase the CE's, as it stands now, they are probably best holding to exact numbers on CE's and just producing more LE's

All jokes aside I would be super annoyed if they did this. I purchased an LE and if they are going to make infinite amounts based on demand I would have gladly bought a standard

aren't they making infinite amounts of le's

That's because there was no demand for additional DI or Wonka.

Will be interesting to see what happens as there is demand for this game.

Makes zero difference to me whether it happens or not, just curiosity.

I’m going to assume that this actually *is* one last joke that isn’t aside, and you seriously didn’t pay $3,000 more for an LE just because they are “limited” to 5,000 units.

It’s a perk and would be false advertisement so why wouldn’t I be annoyed?

WoZ YBR edition at $11,500 with the sparkle playfield and armor was technically another special edition. Waiting for the Wicked Witch edition.

Question:
Played a game just before work,
Didn’t realize at first, but it seems the slash spinner dropped in my unit.
At first it looked like the ball was just sitting on the lip, but closer inspection, the spinner dropped.
I shut the game off and headed out, but wondering what I should be looking for when I lift the hood? Has this happened before?
Thanks I’m advance.

Loosen the big white nut (probably already loose) - spin the thick threaded spindle to raise/lower the disc, then retighten the white nut.

Ok, so we are 11-12 weeks into the CE run. Any guesses on how far along JJP are volume-wise? I checked in with the UK distributor last week and no news yet on CEs shipping to this part of the world.

Quoted from Jokerman:

According to pinside pics posted, the most recent CE delivered was 320 and it was made at the beginning of Mar, so they're probably well into the 300s, if not the low 400s now on the CEs. They took some breaks in there to make SEs and LEs. They haven't been running CEs solid, but the total output is hovering at around 50/wk.

I couldn't find any LE box pics newer than manufactured in Dec 2020, so they're probably well the 600s by now since they've been on the line again at least once since Dec.

Here's the counts, based on most-recent box pics I made a note of:
SE 179 Manufactured as of Feb 2021
LE 422 Manufactured as of Dec 2020
CE 320 Manufactured as of Mar 2021

Did you post a pic of the box? I've been trying to keep the pics, but I sometimes miss posts if they're text only. What was your serial?

EDIT: I went back and looked it up your text only post and yours was CE 320. Edited my post to reflect yours, which is the latest one reported.

Last week the UK distributor posted on Facebook that our CEs will be ready to go this week (but container won’t ship for another month).

hi all,
I've been lurking while everyone updates to 1.19 and sounds like it is good to go.
I'm running 1.12. tried wifi update twice for 4hrs...
it would download but not update.
tried full install. using a mac and created thumb drive using unetbootin.
tried reboot with thumb drive and got error: "non-system disk. press any key to reboot."
I hit all the buttons... nothing happened.

I'm still playing on 1.12 fine so not a "'baller-down" emergency, but I'd sure appreciate a solution before I try again.
cheers...
87S...

and also, I'm super stoked with the game.
I've been playing in tourist mode for a couple months.
Not thinking about patches or maxing multipliers.
no cradling.
I've had issue with spinning disc.
magnet doesn't work but I didn't even notice until I read it on pinside.
replaced flipper rubbers.
flippers at level 25.
level at 6.5 as recommended.
otherwise good to go straight out of the box.
first upgrade on wifi was great to 1.12.

the latest update is making the "shall we play a game" mode a lot more scary.

#2921 8 months ago
Quoted from Freakyguy666:

It would be funnier if you couldn’t actually see Jack doing something like this.

Does Jack even make those decisions anymore? I thought he was more of a figurehead now?

#2922 8 months ago

These were posted on Pinside :

MAC FULL INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1
-- Download the full install .iso file

Step 2
-- Start Disk Utility in Applications/Utilities,
or type "disk utility" into the spotlight search bar (magnifying glass in upper right of screen)
-- If needed, click on "View - Show All Devices" to see all of the devices and their volumes on the left side.

Step 3
-- Insert USB stick, and once it appears in the sidebar of Disk Utility, highlight the device name, not the volume name.
-- Click "Erase" button and set the format to "MS-DOS(FAT)" using scheme "Master Boot Record" with name "JJPUSB"
-- Click "Erase" to start the formatting process.

Step 4
-- Double-click the previously downloaded .iso image file from Step 1
-- This should mount the iso file and open a Finder window showing its contents

Step 5
-- Open another Finder window and on the left side click on the name of the USB stick you formatted in Step 3,
which should show a blank window because there are no files on it yet.

Step 6
-- Select all of the files in the iso file Finder window from Step 4, and drag them into the empty Finder window
from Step 5. This will take some time (20-30 minutes) to complete.

Step 7
-- Once the copy is complete, click on the little "eject" triangles next to the iso image name and the USB stick name
on the left of a Finder window.
-- Once the names disappear from the Finder window, remove the USB stick from the computer.

Step 8
-- Use the USB stick to install the new version in your game, etc.

1.19 seems to be fine 87S, I was in 1.12 just like you, installed 1.19 just the past week, tonight is my 4th night playing non stop and no problems at all.
4 hours that’s too long... Took me from 7-10 minutes to update via Wi-Fi in my 1st try.

Quoted from PtownPin:

Thank you.....I'll buy both of those today and give it a try....I only had 32 GB sticks and both of those failed.

I hope that you found the solution Ptown

Wonka is actually an Amazing game and sold out everywhere for the most part. Very likely they Will rerun that title again. And based on the multitude of want adds for WOZ I would bet that hits the line also.

Quoted from PinMonk:

WOZ was released before the Hobbit. I am guessing the point is that any release after Hobbit has not had a secondary release. IMO this will change, they will follow Stern’s vault editions model.

You left off Pirates. The demand has been off the charts and resale values are ridiculous.

Wicked Witch Edition or bust. With black and green motif and maybe some flying monkey gargoyles as a topper, it could be very cool.

I’d say that he’d certainly like to think he does and leave it at that.

Ah yes - I see it now. Great news - thanks!

#2930 8 months ago

Well now my game won't update from 1.17 to 1.19. It downloads and acts like it's going to update but then just restarts and still on 1.17

This is a known bug, 1.17 broke the Wifi so you need to do a clean install via USB.

Exactly. A Delta USB upgrade should work fine however.

hi
thanks for reply...
tried another thumb drive...
delta upgrade from 1.12 to 1.19 wouldn't work.
full install to 1.19 worked great. very easy.
seems like updates are thumb drive sensitive.
Had my first 100mil game last night still in tourist mode.

super stoked with my game, but sure hearing a lot of gnr running around in my head.
good thing I like gnr...
cheers...

It’s definitely sensitive. I had better luck with a usb3 32gb stick than el-cleap-o 8mb usb2 sticks. Same process creating it.

100mil?!!?! Man i must be doing something wrong. I think my GC is 12-13M.

#2936 8 months ago

How many of the CE's have been shipped and how many are pending delivery?

#2937 8 months ago

Just got back in town from a 2-week trip, and I know there has been a ton of conversation on updates. I have Ver 1.17. Should I try a Wi-Fi update or do a usb update to whatever the latest is (I think I saw 1.19)?

Had a couple decent games (10M+ is good for me, usually 2-3 songs), and I don’t think I recalled it as much before (but that doesn’t mean anything), but in those extended multi ball plays, my right flipper started to feel pretty limp. I guess I need the pinmonk to the rescue.

If going from 1.17 code you will have to use usb to update to 1.19. WiFi will not work.

Where did you plug your usb drive? I cant find where to plug it in! Lol! Thanks!

Quoted from RobbyIRL5:

The right flipper is where you'll feel it first on jjGnR. You can clearly see it on Karl's iepinball streams of jjGnR with the flipper coil temp monitors on screen.

Unfortunately the JJP kits are still on hold for a little longer. I had them ready to release with the 2.0 universal bracket and even opened JJP kit orders briefly, but had a couple R&M version and beta jjGnR brackets break at the junction to the fan area from the standup as well as some fan failures where the leads broke off the fan circuit board right when the GnR kit orders were opened. It wasn't a lot, but it was enough failures that I didn't want to proceed until I could address it. So, I paused the release and redesigned the bracket. The new bracket I've made now is much stronger, but I feel like vibration from the bracket being on the coil stop, taking repeated hits will still be a problem for fan failures and the fix for that will take some time to get right, so I've gone back to a side mount Spike-style (style because it's not exactly the same) bracket for now which will get these jjGnR's cooled and running well now and I can continue working on refining the 2.0 bracket, which may or may not eventually pan out. Once the side-mount bracket is tested this week for fit and function, I'll ship the paused initial jjGnR orders and R&M kit backorders and that should allow me to open for new orders of the Tibetan Breeze kits next week.

There should be a USB cable on the left side of the cashbox.

It is the long beige cable I see on the left of the coinbox? I didn't think that was the one because that cable has something already connected to it, like a usb wifi dongle...should I disconnect what is already connected, and connect my usb drive there to update, and then put back whatever was already there and restart the machine once the uodate is done? Or am I looking at a wrong cable? ):
Thanks your your help!

Is the opening shot supposed to be different on this game? The plunger seems weak. The game itself is a masterpiece. Unbelievable!

Look at the topic index at the top of any page in this thread. There's a link to the post with the barrel spring you need to change out due to the difference in the skull on the outside of the CEs.

#2948 8 months ago

Looks like my CE is shipping. I’m guessing these are coming from Chicago? What’s the delivery time? About 4 or 5 days (to Pennsylvania).

#2950 8 months ago
Quoted from PinFever:

Why so many who bought This CE edition Bought it just to Profit from it? Had a feeling?Speculation?
So many of these CE are for sale soon as they hit Their destination.
So most did not buy to Own and play it rather only Profit from it.
this hobby has been ruined by Speculation Buying now . So with prices climbing for a box of circuits and Wood that back in the day cost a few thousand to produce and still only cost thousands to produce the Sale price of a stern pro is 5900 .lol for basically a home pin with a coin door .
And JJP games which are very much so a better grade of parts IMHO is 7k ish for a standard and way Over the top on CE will not go away due to this new norm of Throwing Top dollar Money and hope you get the next TRON Le so to speak .
I own the CE of Gnr Luckily after countless Threats of not getting it even after i paid full price in December right after the announcement it has me worried for future titles i may want .
If i did lose out and then see all these come up for sale at Gouged pricing to the people who were picked just flip them is just Bull Sheet Man..
Distro's Should take a look at the For sale archived ads and see how many of the Customers they sold to just flipped the game at a profit .
.And if said game is Sold out in a few hours of announcement ,these people should get shafted if the game over sells because of a pattern of Flipping for profit .
I lost out on a Met Roadcase to a bunch of profit flippers after i thought i had mine secured . Then Was taken from me and settled on a roadcase which i still have yet the title i wanted (master of pupets le)went to a Profit flipper instead . \
Pissed off and for good reason . Greed /
The game of pinball turned into a Stock market game instead .
Rant over . and have a nice day

Of course CEs are more valuable than LEs, but no more fun and LEs look amazing. If your stupid or vacuous enough to pay 20k for a CE, then I guess that is your choice, but I think it makes you look like a dickhead.
