Quoted from Heater:

It's pretty inconsistent. Some times my shot bounces back then the post goes down, other times it stays stuck until it does a ball search. Does anyone have a pic of the screw on the post bracket?
Thanks

So I found a brass bolt inside the cabinet but I couldn't tell if it goes to the pop-up. Does anyone have a picture of the pop-up?

Bolt or screw? There's a brass screw on the bottom...

#6203 60 days ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Decided to cancel it though and order Black Knight 3

Since my distro is telling me that he's still waiting on my LE to be built still, I may be doing exactly that. Especially since "to be built" has already left the building from my understanding. I probably won't shed too many tears though, that BK looks bad ass.

#6204 60 days ago
Quoted from Heater:

Machine screw ?

Check the bottom of post assemblies, etc. It is what you turn up or down to adjust heights level with playfield. A bolt on it is tightened when adjusted so it doesn't move.

LTG : )

Quoted from bigdaddy07:

Indeed it does! The artwork looks great. My guess is that the code will be the same as all the other Stern games, the shots look similar to othe games by Riche. It’s a safe bet on normal.

Sorry for the sarcasm. Just so tired of samey games from stern

#6206 60 days ago

They’re still building pirates at the factory. Nothing wrong with “to be built” as of now.

#6207 60 days ago
Quoted from Pinballomatic:

I thought they were only building standards until they're out of parts?

#6208 60 days ago

They’re not finished everybody’s order yet so no they’re doing LEs and standards

#6209 60 days ago
Quoted from Pinballomatic:

They’re not finished everybody’s order yet so no they’re doing LEs and standards

But they've locked down orders so no new distributor orders for LEs are being taken?

#6210 60 days ago

Yes as far as I know. They still have to finish the orders they have though.

#6211 60 days ago

I was told today, that my LE I ordered last week isn't on the line yet...they are waiting on parts.

#6212 60 days ago

That could be but the parts are coming in. I could be wrong of course but no orders have been cancelled

#6213 60 days ago
Quoted from indypinhead:

I was told today, that my LE I ordered last week isn't on the line yet...they are waiting on parts.

interesting that they are still waiting on parts. I thought the whole reason they stopped was b/c they were out of parts?

#6214 60 days ago
Quoted from delt31:

Yea that would seem odd to me too

#6215 60 days ago

Well I think - and I’m just thinking out loud here - that the moment would have come a few months ago when they would have reached the level of orders to exhaust all the expected parts. Since these things are not ordered piecemeal in general, at that point you say “okay, will we get enough orders going forward to justify a full re-order of a large quantity of everything?” If at that point the thought is possibly not or Do we have time or whatever the case, then you don’t refresh all the POs and do it all again. If you want to do that now, it’s not practical any more owing to the lead time for large quantities of parts to keep the line running. So now where you need stuff for whatever reason to finish the production run, you order it. Obviously I’m way over simplifying but I believe that’s what goes on.

#6216 60 days ago
Quoted from indypinhead:

I was told today, that my LE I ordered last week isn't on the line yet...they are waiting on parts.

I'm a recent order also and on the same path as you...

#6217 60 days ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

Yea that would seem odd to me too

They may not have received all of the parts they ordered. There's also likely been a number of warrantied games over the past 6 months and additional parts are needed to complete the remaining distributor orders. I'm sure they want a stock of parts to support existing games down the road as well, at least I hope they do.

#6218 60 days ago
Quoted from indypinhead:

Same for me.

#6219 60 days ago

Well okay. I suppose I'm still in on this game then, which is great. I was just starting to consider atlernative options, since I was getting the feeling that I wasn't going to get a game. So I was thinking had 10k floating around that needed a place to go and BK was looking like a possible good fit. If I get a pirates still, I'll just snag a premium down the road.

#6220 60 days ago

When making 1000 games you take parts in batches. I. E. Cabinets. You don't have room and you don't want to store all that

Agreed. Stern doesn't build a $8999 game. Their LE' s are really Pro's and should be priced accordingly. JMO when comparing games in my collection.

Here is a pic of the pop up. Looks like the screw is on good and tight. Not sure where this bolt came from

brass screw, check the pop up posts. one in map area, 2 in black pearl orbit(one behind boat). did u find it at back of cabinet or the front? right side or left?

#6224 60 days ago

More than one bracket under there has the screw to raise or lower something.

thats the strange thing. i found it under that same orbit pop up in the back on the left side

You're in my way, boy.

Quoted from indypinhead:

I notice that you went w/ the double ring style star post. Any reason for that?

Good catch, I didn’t even notice that myself! I had those starposts in my parts bin for years and POTC needed them so in they went. I suppose I could change them out again, but I doubt I will. I’m just glad the playfield isn’t being chipped anymore

#6230 59 days ago

I didn't read the forum for a few days. Any news on the code?

#6231 59 days ago

Keefer has been sick for a few weeks. My guess is that they where going to launch it at Texas.
My next guest would be at MGC April 12th.

Hopefully before that. The black bonus screens are annoying, and I'm not turning the tips back on to get rid of them.

#6233 59 days ago

25 games in and its off with the black pearl chasing switch faults at least its 25 plays more than I had with Dialled In before pulling it apart I guess

What switches are you having problems with?

#6235 59 days ago

EOS and standup targets,I have fixed a few customers machines in the past with similar problems,probably a wire fallen off,things are pretty tight under there on the early production games

EOS was not gapped right from the factory on the one we just got. Easy fix.

Quoted from Axl:

Yeah. Sounds like he is back in the office as of last week from what Eric said at TPF. Eric also mentioned at TPF that Keith had been working on the games super wizard mode and that its been coming together well. It sounds like a 1.0 release will represent all modes being coded into the game.

I hope Keith is given some more time to polish and add more choreography to the wizard modes. Ted Estes is likely the lead on the code for Wonka as he was for Dialed In. If GNR is in the fall then Keith is likely the lead on that game unless one of the other guys is.

What kind of excuse is being sick? Lol!

It’s coding, not bricklaying

#6239 59 days ago

I see yelobird in this thread quite a bit so I have to say, thanks for the JJPOTC mods. I put the Kraken and Dauntless railing on recently and they really make those parts of the game pop. Now to just empty my wallet for a few more!

In general, very very glad to have such an amazing game in my home collection and appreciate all of the support from the owners community as I've been dialing the game in, specifically to zaphx and kevinbuffalo but there are so many others.

Hope everyone enjoys the streams if you've seen them, I'm trying to do my best to show off the scoring benefits to each character but at the rate I go for streaming and game play, that's gonna take a while Best part is, provided I don't get Weatherby in a random select 1P game, I feel like there's great options all around. Amazing work by Eric, Keith, Joe K, JP De Win, David Thiel, and the whole team.

#6240 59 days ago

How do you do the random select?

#6241 59 days ago

push and hold left flipper, then flip the right flipper 5 times

#6242 59 days ago
Quoted from heni1977:

I keep trying that and it's not working. I checked my settings and it's not turned off.

Do the 5 right flips faster.

I highly recommend the mezel mods decking for the black pearl and the lighting for the depths/bayou holes. They really make difference IMHO.

And yes modcouple has completely broken my wallet! My wife loves the dog and the monkey the best.

Yeah I saw McSirTuna do the decking for the black pearl and the lighting for the chest, but the lighting for the depths and bayou both sound pretty awesome too...so many mods, so little time lol I was thinking I might grab the cannon and the monkey too, but I'm kind of waiting since I might have a new pin coming in at some point to see if I can batch orders together.

I've never had so much fun spending money as I have since I started collecting pins.

#6246 59 days ago

Just unboxed the game. Looks like JJP is now wrapping the latest games with shrink wrap which is nice. Not sure if these are all coming like this. My Dialed In LE had the plastic around the head but no shrink wrap around the entire game.

Maybe it’s a YBR WOZ! That’s how that one was wrapped. Here’s hoping it’s a Pirates! Congrats look forward to hearing your review. Learn a few of the code rules from the how to thread and the journey will seem endless. Congrats!

Looks like Jack signed your cool.

Do any of you know the dimensions of your POTC shipping box by chance? I know a few people just got theirs, wondering what the dimensions are.

#6249 59 days ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

I think it's between 30 and 31 inches, can't recall the exact measurements. All I know is I can barely get the cabinet through my basement doorway with it out of the box. The back box on Dialed In and POTC seem slightly wider then others.

I can live with 31"x31". Just enough that I can cram the box into my SUV. It's actually for picking up my WOZ but I'd imagine the box size is the same as POTC.
