I will have to remember to look for this!! Now you got me wondering!

#9702 5 months ago
Quoted from Zora:

Yes, that is what I meant. But my chest is not flashing at all, neither in the pre lock nor in the lock status.

Check your bulb, small red light in front right side of chest.

I’ll try to photo it but looks like it’s in the front right corner when viewed from playing position.

It isn’t super bright but it is there and noticeable.

#9703 5 months ago
Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

You need to plug your sub directly into the headphones socket on the CPU in the backbox (as described in my post) - not the headphones socket on the front of the cabinet. You'll need a splitter to allow the sub to share the CPU's socket along with the cable jack from the headphones socket on the front of the cabinet.

What kind of splitter would that be, do you have a reference? This would mean to plug that in the 2 RCA inputs of the sub? Would the quality be better than using the high level inputs in the sub from the alligator clips?

Quoted from Zora:

What kind of splitter would that be, do you have a reference? This would mean to plug that in the 2 RCA inputs of the sub? Would the quality be better than using the high level inputs in the sub from the alligator clips?

The splitter consists of a single 3.5mm (male) jack attached to two 3.5 mm (female) sockets. The splitter jack plugs into the CPU's headphone socket. The two splitter sockets receive (1) the 3.5 mm jack from the cabinet headphone socket cable and (2) a 3.5 mm jack on the end of a subwoofer cable w/ RCA connector(s) on other end.

Piece of cake.

#9705 5 months ago

Ok, I understand, thanks.

What about quality, is that better than alligator Clips?

#9706 5 months ago

Finally found a CE for sale near me. Can't wait to get it! I haven't really watched the movie, but Im a fan of the pirate theme. Maybe I will add a goonies mod.

#9707 5 months ago

Wow thats the first time I noticed it! There it is in the chest.

#9708 5 months ago
Quoted from Zora:

The KIT seems to do nothing else than using alligator clips, only a bit more comfortable. It connects to the speaker cable in the cabinet. So it seems that there is no way to use direct board connection for the sub only?

Pinwoofer kits replace the stock sub and installs an amp. Way better than stock sub. Plus it is inside the machine vs wires running to a box outside. It uses a t tap on speaker wire and power connects using an empty unused plug located in the backbox. Super easy.

But if you already have the external sub, alligator clip will work fine.

Hey guys! I've been lurking on Pinside for a good 3 years now searching for my first pin (NIB at that) and finally settled on JJP POTC! Just received it last week and this game totally lives up to expectations - super happy!!

I bought an LE from Christopher from Kingpin Games and he's been awesome with the whole transaction! Had a few little issues (as with any pin) and he's "righted the ship" so to speak and been great! Highly recommend him!

I've had my POTC LE for 2 weeks now. Awesome game!

#9712 5 months ago
Quoted from drewski28:

Just curious, is there any point value assigned to getting the "666666" (all six multiballs running at the same time)? With as hard as it is to get and maintain, seems like something major should happen. My thought was you get 666,666 points or something.

Not sure what the scoring total was during the 6MBs at once, but this video shows them in action. The overall game score ended up at 982,909 from my 9-year old who took over and finished my game.

We'll lets hear from all u SE owners too. I'll have mine next week once this stupid cold goes away

#9715 5 months ago
Quoted from Zora:

I would imagine that standard connectors would result in higher quality audio. Can't say as to how much though as I've never used alligator clips for hooking up a sub.

#9716 5 months ago

How about this Black Pearl for an SE topper? Next, how to make it rock and have rolling waves...

Has anyone put mirror blades on their POTC? The playfield is really tight, not sure if they will fit.

...q the cheeky puns, but hopefully get an answer.

#9719 5 months ago

Anyone notice the stickers starting to peel off their target ship? Little squares on the movable side of the ship that faces the BP.

Nothing cheeky but I will teach you how to fish instead. At the Top of this POTC thread simply type "Mirror Blades" and you will see ALL of the people that installed them, How they installed them, and if they worked along with what they look like! I even did a write up on this as did several others! Good Luck!

Is yelobird making another railing mod like the Mezel version or was that wishful thinking?

#9722 5 months ago

I think he is working on it! I am expecting a great mod, that's why it's taking so long! But my wife says nothing will beat the dog barrel light cover.

Quoted from heni1977:

We all really need to gang up for a request to pinball_keefer to turn up the intensity on that light. I never noticed it either and was going to get the mod to light up the chest. It's there already ... just a little too dim. I'm sure it's likely just a simple code adjustment to make that brighter.

Yep, there already and works great. If I’m playing in dim light it’s pretty noticeable but with lights on normal doesn’t quite jump out at you.

Pretty slick though that they incorporated this though!

I was about to order the one from Mezel, hopefully he confirms!

It was no work at all when I did it. Followed instructions somewhere in this thread. Snap figure in half. Drill pilot holes in bottom of figure. Screw in figure. Nothing else to it. I gorilla glued the gun and bottle in the hands and glued the joints into position so it wouldn't move. Piece of cake and took me about 10 minutes.

#9730 5 months ago

I'm just order a SE hopefully it arrives sometime next week. Any must have mods people can recomend figuer I'll start buying them so I have them in hand by the time potc arrives

Some lighting enhancement mods from us...I'd guess a backboard light would be good on the SE since there is no star map.

I would suggest the trough light too!

I have not noticed it before you indicated that there is a red light flashing when ready to lock. It seems far to small. But if the flashing is akready installed, the modding industry should hook a better lightning to this LED easily. A green flashing would better suit to the general chest colour.

#9735 5 months ago

Got my standard coming next week. I guess if I love it, I can get an LE or CE later if they seem different. Shaker is coming, can add the headphone jack/volume control, and rock formation on the left inexpensively. JJP said the software wouldn't support the LED constellation for the Standard, but I think more likely there is a driver board and LEDs they won't bundle for the standard-as the software looks the same to me?... Beats me, I'll just have some fun with it.

#9736 5 months ago

Would a CE topper work on a LE, meaning would it move like on a CE? Possibly a CE owner is not interested and might sell his topper.

#9737 5 months ago
Quoted from Zora:

At some point in the prior 10k posts there was a comment that it was not compatible due to coding differences on the LE. I am sure it could be rigged to work on a separate circuit but it would not have controls coded to function with the LE for varied speeds as the CE does. Honestly though I would doubt any of the 200 CE holders would sell as it is an iconic part of the upgrade to CE. You would need to wait for one to be scrapped to harvest the parts. I personally would not sell mine. So there are 199 left to get lucky on!

Really, a mod maker could make something on par and the market for it would be pretty well open for folks. However, the LE does have a pretty nice topper included so you would be aiming for those SE on location that rarely upgrade anyways. So maybe it’s not a large enough market...

Modcouple barrel topper, monkey, silencer, and maelstrom mods are great.

Also elsewhere in these threads are a pistol handle launcher and barrel section that goes under the glass. The whole deal is pricy but the quality of product is insane. Feels like a real pistol. I got one for my CE and it looks amazing. The launcher feel takes a handful of games to get used to as well as you don’t really pull the launcher the same as you would a pistol. I’ll post a pic later with it. You also need to replace the launcher spring with a more robust spring to account for the weight of the new launcher.

No, software won't support it. You'd need the CE dongle too.

JJP told you the truth.

I like the red, it is intended to represent Davey Jones Heart and seems to flicker to the Heart Beat. Not sure green would give same effect.

Do you have a picture of the backglass lighting kit installed? I purchased one from you, but can’t figure out how to install it without it greatly affecting the high score picture quality.

#9743 5 months ago
Quoted from Psw757:

We have a mod to light the chest, you can’t really see the stock lights very well. It is not interactive, but can be set with different light modes with the supplied controller. We have it listed for red and gold, but we can do green or other colors like purple, blue and white (warm and cool). I’ll look at interactive, but it might be running directly into a board and I’m not a fan of having people plug things into the boards where they can cause problems.

If anyone without a starmap is interested in "starry sky" lights behind the full width "galaxy sky" background I was thinking of doing that along with the full width plastic.

Do people find the dog and barrel flasher covers dim the affect of the flashers? I really love the dog, it brings backs nostalgic memories of the ride. I guess if you have the dog, you need the barrel. But I’m torn, cos I really love the light show too!!! Decisions! Will definitely get the cannon, kraken and the wife wants the monkey. Thought she would be satisfied of just having one around the house.

Also would love a half wheel with decking to represent the helm on top of the black pearl spinners. Seems to be enough room with the rocking. As long as enough room to pull playfield up and out.

Yes. I was considering opening up the holes a bit more or creating new ones in the barrel. I would be nice actually if the barrel was thin so it lit up with the flasher. Probably opposite of what you want to do when designing something to last.

I also want that "wheel" or something to fill the gap, no one seems interested in making it.

I know right! Seems essential to finish the Black Pearl off. I bet yelobird’s ears are burning right now!

Sounds cool, would there be room behind it to run fiber optic .5mm to 1mm range? I don't want to alter the machine by removing anything though.
