The mylar I remember being discussed, just was not sure where everyone was putting the pieces. I did know of the one for the vuk for the
BP.
I do not intend to start another thread. I just think there needs to be more key posts for this one. So others can navigate easier.

#6802 6 months ago

Hi Guys, I was having a problem with my canon that was not line up, now i think that the problem is the Black Pearl and not the dauntless.
I see damage on the cabinet from the ship. Also, I see a big gap between the mini playfield and ramp.
Anyone have an idea? before i do something wrong.

what kind of rubber is JJP installing these days? china brand X? or titan silicone?

#6804 6 months ago
Quoted from TZBen:

I think they are rubber. I just replaced mine with Titans and there is a big improvement. I went with red to replace the 3 main flippers . JJP's red ones were more like a faded out red and were showing a lot of wear and scuffing after just a couple of hundred plays. The new Titans do look great and should be much more durable.

#6805 6 months ago

Those of you that have installed bigger clear washers under the sling posts, where did you get them?

#6806 6 months ago
Quoted from TZBen:

Clear silicone bands, not sure what brand, but Titan wouldn't surprise me. Flippers are standard rubber.

I’m about to try some that I bought from Amazon along with star posts from PBL. Links are in the fixes doc.

I'm going to order some flipper rubbers before my POTC arrives. Are the flippers on the black pearl standard size flippers?

#6810 6 months ago

For those that have switched the sling posts out for start posts, are you switching all 3 per side, or just 2 (top and bottom)?

#6811 6 months ago
Quoted from indypinhead:

No. They are mini flippers.

Looks like your BP is not seated all the way forward on the supporting bracket posts although I'm not sure how that could be possible since the shoulder bolt holding the BP from sliding back does not allow for any movement and that gap is pretty large. I would hope the issue is not that the brackets are installed in the wrong place, that would suck.

Have you ever removed the BP?

#6813 6 months ago

"Slings" are referring to the left and right pieces right above the flippers correct?

My game is brand new and those white slings pretty flippin' fast (see what I did there? )

Anyhow, I'm all about "better" ...

Also, I definitely agree that the half circle mylar seems perfect for the BP so I'll work on that.
I don't see a whole lot of fuss as far as using the square mylar pieces on the lockdown bar and know for a fact that several others opted to use them in different places.

SO. MUCH. TO. LEARN.

#6814 6 months ago
Quoted from Psw757:

Pretty sure the curved Mylar is for up on the pearl where it comes out of vuk, it fits there perfectly. I’m assuming this is the one your talking about. I cut my own for the chapter start since I didn’t see a piece big enough supplied.

psw757, I would love to see a photo if you don't mind.

This seems like a VERY COMMON area discussed as far as placing custom mylar.
Would you also be so kind as to provide a link. Also, how do you custom cut your mylar? Scissors? Razer? Laser? lol

Thanks!

#6815 6 months ago

Yes your slings are above your flippers, you also have one under the ramp to the pearl.
I went with titan bands for the flippers, JJP did use some titan rings for some stuff but not flippers. This was direct from titan as I emailed them.

#6816 6 months ago

--/ General Inquiry--/ (not necessarily related to POTC)

I assume this is a "hard no", but does "everyone" actually spend the time to go through all the diagnostics.

I honestly just think it's pretty cool and would be interesting to do.
The ship calibration device test or w/e was especially cool.

Anyway...

Thanks and I assume Titan is basically the best.

So is the consensus to just replace the rubber vs cleaning it?

Yes I'd replace. Titan is a good way to go.

I would definitely replace all the flipper rubbers and Black Pearl Rubbers with Titans. Best rings on the market and will help keep the dirt down on the pin.

Let us know how that goes, and take a few photos too!

Do the posts just screw in and out with a nut driver? Haven't done mine yet.

Oh, and do the washers just need to fit the size of the star post base or over extend it also?

Does anyone know what size rings the upper playfield takes? I'd like to get some titans on order. I don't care much for black rubbers.

#6823 6 months ago

Also, how do you guys clean your glass?

Specifically, handle the glass. Obviously, the only part that "matters" is the underside glass that isn't accessible when on top of the playfield. So do you try to handle strictly from the sides, use gloves, etc?

On the titan site, it's Rubber Rings Flipper Mini. https://www.titanpinball.com/kits/index.php/browse/bygame/5729

I just handle it on the sides like any other glass. I clean using better life glass cleaner. It's all natural, no ammonia, safe for invisiglass, PDI, etc.

Anyway...

Well I did and found issues that if I did not do diagnostics probly would have never known. I have an LE and more than one led is displaying the wrong color (or rather 1 color is missing so half of the colors are wrong). Would have never known without doing to led tests and checking all the colors. Would have also never noticed the 4-5 lights that were not plugged in or plugged in the wrong place. We cant forget that on paper we only have like 30 days to find most issues and 1 year on lights pcb screen ect. So if you dont thouroghly go through machine and in 32 days you figure out your diverter isnt working and has a bad coil well you out of warranty. Not saying this is how it would be handled but on paper that is how it is written. The most delicate part (leds and boards) do have the 1 year so thats good.

I keep neoprene gloves I bought at Harbor Freight nearby, helps with not having the clean fingerprints from the glass all the time.....

Seriously, this is for all POTC owners or other JJP pin owners: if you have not looked thru the manual (CD, PDF, or print), you owe it to yourself to take a good look thru it. It is the standard all other pin manuals should be judged by, there is a HUGE wealth of information in it, down to the smallest details with some awesome diagrams and pictures.

I'm awaiting a shipment of Sparkle. I heard it was good and even recommended by JJP. I have not heard of better life, but I'm open to any and all suggestions. I heard one can mix 50% isopropyl alcohol and 50% distilled water and that's amazing. (@zaphX)

Those are them, pick the color of your choice. I wouldn't recommend black on the lower due to the flipper bats already being black making the flipper harder to see.

I have started and I said it once already, I'm absolutely BLOWN AWAY with the Owner's manual that comes with the CE. I honestly think it's worth the price of admission if you don't have it.

Ya the manual is nice. Saw it at TPF and ordered one when I ordered the machine. Although I do enjoy marking the manual all up on the Ipad to keep notes on adjustments issues ect....

#6836 6 months ago

Sparkle is what I use. DO NOT use anything with ammonia will hurt the glass.

Thanks man!!

#6839 6 months ago

I have to ask. Does anyone else find the canon shot extremely hard to hit? Any tips for making that shot easier? Maybe I need to make an adjustment on my game.

If the Pearl and Dauntless are correctly lined up the shot is not difficult. Once you know the timing you should hit it almost every time.

If the Dauntless is too far to the left or right, you'll never make the shot.

Oh, I just meant hitting the load cannon shot on the Pearl. I can't even make that yet lol.

#6844 6 months ago

I'm sure this has been mentioned in one of the six thousand eight hundred and forty three posts in this thread, but regarding cliffy protectors, along with the kit designed for POTC, I would also recommend the universal slot protectors for under the wire-form inlane drops. http://www.passionforpinball.com/switchslot.htm

#6845 6 months ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Right, takes a bit of practice but basically hit the spinner orbit a couple times to light the Load targets, cradle the ball on left flipper, shoot the left Load, cradle again, and quick flip with the ship listing to the left and it should go into the cannon door. Easier said than done depending on how fast the ship is rocking

From what I know, Cliffy is now adding slot protectors with his POTC set.

Nut driver, or quarter drive deep well sockets.

#6848 6 months ago

I removed the Pearl today to solve all the switch problems and found out that the wires
Were broken off. I soldered them on and gave the wirelooms some space by cutting the tie-rips(?). Everything was pulling on the movement of the ship so the wires had no chance.

It took me some time but with the help from the video I felt I could do it. Its not easy and I found the rearranging part at the end the most difficult. When everything was off I took the moment to attach the Cliffy’s! After I had the Pearl back on and realized I forgot about that, so I could take all the wires out and start over again
Thanks for the protectors Passion for Pinball!! Great fit!!

Other problem:
The right spinner on the pearl was not registering and I found out that the black opto holder was broken so the optos did not align. I had no spare so I cut of a swich blade and with some strong glue I managed to make it work and strong enough to be able to align.

I hope I can get an new one somewhere but I have never seen these before.
Anybody know where to get them?

So, attaching the Pearl was a bit harder because of the ramp. But at the end all switches are working!! Really happy about that!!

Game on!
Thanks for all the tips and guidelines!

For folks new to working on pinball machines, I highly recommend the Butch Peel “Tools of the Trade” video.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/tools-of-the-pinball-trade-video

It is very worthwhile as it shows the tools you’ll want to have as well as how to use them. If you don’t own a set of nut drivers yet, you’re making things harder on yourself than needed.

#6850 6 months ago

Loose wires.
