Quoted from brucipher:

Slings and under the lockdown bar.

And they are optional, which is why they aren’t pre-installed.

Can you elaborate on the lockdown bar position? I have never put one there. Thanks.

#10303 5 months ago

BTW, got my SE last night. Should be playing today if everything goes to plan.

Thank you Joe at PinSTAR! Great guy and great service.

They go on the edge of the side rails where the lock bar would rub possibly scratching the paint.

I put the square ones under the wire form drops. For the lockdown they are meant to go where it sits on top of the side rails. But you can put felt tape or some other tape.

Are most people installing these? I haven't

#10307 5 months ago

I think I found a - very little - bug. When the mode Wedding Day starts, the two shots that are mentioned to the right on top of the screen are both called Map Hole. One of the characters was - I think - Wil Turner, the other one was the guy that is pictured at The Depths on the playfield.

Good recovery to Keith, sorry to hear your bad luck in the gene pool... Love your coding style.

Looks amazing! What's with the plastic, did you get radcals?

#10312 5 months ago

Yep, RADCALS as I think you mentioned they were a pain in the Rear to install.

Quoted from 3pinballs:

They were not simple, but not that bad either. Much nicer to get them from the factory! Don't they look amazing?

#10314 5 months ago

Yep they do.....I'm not taking it off....waiting for my Wife and Daughter to get back from France in 10 days to let them do the honors

Where did you find a last minute LE?!

#10317 5 months ago

So this is my first NIB...I am impressed...its my 3rd machine in the collection, but my 4th machine I ever owned...I am impressed so far with JJP's quality...I know there were some issues with the pops, but mine looks to be so far in great shape...I did have them send me the kit with the washers just to play it safe...I will say..they are very responsive...I sent an email about a missing plumb bob, and I had a response within 3 mins through email...the person I emailed quickly got all my info, registered my game and got me a shipping notice for the one missing part...very impressed overall...Can't wait to get into this game really deep...yes its an SE, but I don't know any better since I never played the LE...I love it! I've already been eyeballing the hell out of different mods lol

Not sure why it matters lol. Nothing secret about buying a JJPOTC. It’s not like you bought a wonka LE before anyone else could.

#10323 5 months ago

ball stuck on upper playfield 1st ball played, bummer. the upper ramp is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch lower than the ramp....any ideas.

Also, no washers on either side... they look good, but need to get kit from JJP

Looks like you need to reseat the black pearl as it’s fallen off the front support. Mine was that way from shipping without a foam block supporting the pearl.

Undo the rear screw behind the pearl, slide it back a bit lift front and back forward.

Yeah I saw that to my buddy said it shouldn't be an issue as it's not like slinging like the hammer ... U think I should adjust it if so how.?

Do I have to disconnect wires underneath or can I do without doing wires

#10329 5 months ago
Quoted from 3pinballs:

Don’t need to disconnect anything as you’re not removing it entirely. Move it back enough to lift front and slide back forward.

#10330 5 months ago

Is the the ship supposed to move all way left and all the way right?

#10331 5 months ago

I have not looked on here to see if this has been answered, but does anyone know how to get the Arr Frenzy started? I have made it a few times, and not sure if random after lighting pirate and hitting the standup, or if I did it by lighting pirate more than once before hitting the standup. Thanks in advance for any info.
On another note, my best scores have been on Pintel with 1.1m, Barbossa 676k, Will 648k, and Cotton 574k The 1.1 included ar frenzy of 907k. I thought the machine had tore up it was going so crazy with ar noises.

LE #550 is home! 130 plays, perfect! So great in the home, love it. Got a Standard to sell now in the box. Maybe I should just keep it and get a CE to round things out.
Epic game!

Keep it for a while then sell it then get you're CE

#10334 5 months ago

The holes are a kinda big on these Lowe’s rubber washers, so I’m placing them a little off center until I get the JJP fix, not too tight.

They fit the star posts well. I think you will be happy.

Anyone measure the JJP supplies star posts from kit compared to a post bought elsewhere?
Just curious if they got creative and had a custom size made.

#10336 5 months ago

So I understand the JJP “kit” they send is star posts and washers is that correct? I want to make sure I call ahead of time before mine arrives

#10337 5 months ago

Well count me in for the pop toy replacement club.

Big difference really happy I did it. Super easy too like others mentioned. I actually split it apart with my hands then used the pop cap as a template (as mentioned) to manually screw in by hand. All set.

Series 3 Captain. I like that dumb smile on his face and who doesn't like boos and guns...

#10338 5 months ago

Me too - series 1 Jack plus the Dauntless mod arrived from Mezel today Still deciding on mirror or art blades, wish I would of bought the barrel flashers and pop caps when I got the kraken and cannon from the Mod Couple so ordering those now, also ordering rubber, brightmod flipper buttons and maybe the cannon guard from pinballlife, Harry’s spinners, door and backboard, waiting on cliffys, and thinking about a Polk subwoofer. This is nuts!

Just a temporary situation. I'm actually not sure which one I'll end up keeping, probably the LE. First world problems...

#10341 5 months ago

I am a new owner for POTC. Do other people have tiny crackling sometimes in the audio - like a short tiny pop?
Also the PF-lights seem to sometimes flicker for a brief moment (under a second for sure).

Anyone with similar symptons and what's the cure?

Thanks for any info!

Rebalance your levels between music/fx/voice. The software doesn't do this (why? I don't know, it's not a hard task...) so if the total output of all of those put together are too much, you can clip the audio which sounds like static or crackling.

Thanks, I will try this - I do not use the audio on very high setting, but if its a question of the mix, I will try to adjust it (I have it on factory setting).

Also the flicker on the playfield - it may actually be the topper that is flickering and it is reflected on the playfield. I have the topper set on max 32, but still there is the tiny flicker once in a while.

you can only get the bonus once per ball. also you must hit a switch on the black pearl ( spinner load cannon bonus x gold) before you can activate his ability. He is also I believe the only character to be able to have multiball during wizrad mode

Another possibility is you have a ground loop. If adjusting the mix doesn't help, see if the machine has a ground loop isolator installed from the output on the sound board. I don't think these ship with that from the factory and some people have problems with that due to the wiring at their location.

JJP toppers have always flickered a bit (all the way back to WoZ ECLE). It's worse if you use the fade feature.

#10346 5 months ago

There is a lot of discussion about posts, slingshots etc. I am missing more threads regarding rules, scoring, strategies etc. For example I wondered when Keefer mentioned in this thread some days ago that hitting the extra ball right sling increases tortuga level by one. That was very helpful, but totally new to me. I wonder whether there are further unknown details beside the general rules described in some rulesheets or game descriptions. As far as I know, a complete rulesheet is not existing.

One concrete question regarding scoring. I understand that the scull values in each movie influence the scoring in the corresponding chapters of this movie and the chapter scores determine the values in the wizard mode of this movie. But what about the scoring in the multiballs, meaning jackpots and super jackpots. Do they have fixed values or are they depending on scull values as well or other varables. How knows details and which source is the best for this kind of information?

I believe after completing PIRATE lanes 3 times it becomes one of the PIRATE award choices and a mystery award possibility.

Correct! It's the pinkish purple inlane award. I've never seen it on Mystery though.

All you should need to do for Ragetti's add-a-ball is hit the action button as soon as the ball goes up on the Pearl. You can do it once per ball.
