Quoted from Moomert1:

Maybe the compass? Or maybe a skeleton being hanged from the gallows? Or the kraken?

Meh... none of that sounds very ironic or interesting... nor easy to implement in the layout that is needed. I already have the parts on the way for this so going to mess with it.

#10602 7 months ago

I plan to remove the chest for a special mod. Has anybody removed the chest already? Was it difficult? How is it fixed on the playfield and which cables do I have to separate?

Any information is highly welcome.

#10603 7 months ago

Man POTC is crazy. There is so much to do. I love JJP they have so much on the play field to explore and do. Whats up with that pirate that turns around like crazy at the pop bumpers? What is he doing?

Thanks

Quoted from zaphX:

Try and hit it from the tip of the right flipper as the ship lists to the left. That works best for me, though it can also be weakly cradled and backhanded from the left.

I can load the cannon but not terribly successful at hitting the target hole in the other ship.

Quoted from kcZ:

Practice Practice Practice
It hit it rarely as well, though I don't often get the cannon loaded to try.

gumnut01 directed me to the yelobird fix a couple of days ago, shorter hex posts to move the target ship up. I tried shim on the shooter ramp, which works, but yelobird has the best fix. Check to see where the ball is hitting the ship.

Quoted from kcZ:

Make sure everything is in alignment on both ships.

On the SE version I play on-location the cannon has been out of whack since almost day one - to the point that I'm just qualifying Black Pearl multiball using the skillshot advance once the cannon is primed to be loaded. Much easier than having to make 3 missed shots or the rare chance that the cannon shot actually hits as intended.

Its unfortunate but JJP POTC is definitely a game that needs major tweaking/dialing in before it plays 'right"

How do you qualify with skill shot to advance? Do you mean the plunge skill shot to the ship entrance?

#10610 7 months ago
Quoted from Breger1:

From page A-13 of the manual (the section titled “Skill Shots”):
3) Plunge the ball with medium strength to send the ball toward the top of the playfield. If you are able to drop it into the subway entrance, beneath the Black Pearl mini playfield, you are awarded points and one stage of progress toward sinking the Dauntless with the Black Pearl cannon (below, center) and qualifying The Curse of The Black Pearl Multiball. You also get to board the Black Pearl mini playfield in an attempt to further your progress (more on this feature to follow).

Quoted from harryhoudini:

You can do it while the ship is on, you just remove the top left piece of trim (3 nuts hold it on). The mechanism uses a little pancake coil (like the chest release) with an arm and spring attaching to the cannon load door. The bend of that arm and the strength of the spring basically control the door closed and open position. The problem is there is very little room for adjustment because if you "tighten" it up (bending the arm so the door opens more) the closed position isn't closed enough to prevent the ball from entering. It takes some minor bends in the arm, basically. Just play around with it... make sure the ball is kept out when closed and can get in when open (I was just sliding a ball around with my fingers).

Are you referring to that L bracket you trimmed or something else entirely?

Quoted from wesman:

That post was adjusting the door/gate to the loading the cannon. Did I reply to the wrong thing?

Quoted from Zora:

I plan to remove the chest for a special mod. Has anybody removed the chest already? Was it difficult? How is it fixed on the playfield and which cables do I have to separate?
Any information is highly welcome.

Pretty simple.

0. Just unplug everything under the playfield that comes through the hole. It's all easily found right there. Make sure your opto cables are color coded already (most on mine did not have the color marks on the connectors)

1. There is a wood screw into the playfield that is hard to see. If you look down behind the coil that controls the ball release between the chest and the coil you'll see the screw. You need a long phillips bit, magnetic.

2. The right mounting plate is under the chapter select plastic. Just remove the center nut holding the chest bracket to the plate.

Pretty straightforward as long as you can get to that #1 screw.

#10615 7 months ago
Quoted from gumnut01:

Finished with all but last 2 mods - the mezel decks. Big thanks to Rey from Tilt excellent service. Kraken blades are soooo good. My game is turning into a little pirate haven under glass. Big thanks to yelobird for all his support as well. Helped me out with additional orders and installation. No probs except when the kraken is installed the ball will not travel cleanly under the diverter. The kraken pushes the diverter down a little from its maximum height meaning there is not enough clearance. Discussed it with yelobird who advised me there might be something wrong with my ramp as no other person has the issue. Anyway if your ball does not have enough clearance and nicks the bottom of the diverter as it goes around the maelstrom yelobird helped me devise a simple solution. Find an old bit of pinball plastic. Cut to fit underneath your kraken. Drill a hole in this plastic so you can bolt it down with existing bolt. Then stick kraken on. As you can see from before and after photos fixes the problem. Any issues contact yelobird, very helpful!![quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Mine seems to have the ball hit the diverter as well but when I was playing last night I paid attention and it didn't seem like it affected ball travel at all. I assume the ball has enough inertia to move the diverter out of the way that slight amount. Probably not good for ball sheen but the fix looks simple enough.

Thanks a lot for your detailed ! I will try during the weekend.

I guess I was referring to if multiball can be started without the cannon shot?

Yes it can. Skill shot the boat 3 times, then make the Port Royal shot. Movie 1 multiball.

#10619 7 months ago

Does anyone have a Devil’s Triangle they would be willing to sell? JJP is being kind of odd about selling any LE toys to SE customers. (Yes I bought the SE a bit late and missed out on a LE unfortunately)

Not a guarantee only a suggestion but Matt at Back Alley is the one that Made those for JJP so my guess is you would have better luck buying one from him. Can’t hurt to try?!

#10623 7 months ago
Quoted from Breger1:

Or get the load cannon light (green arrow) lit on the Black Pearl and then skill shot to advance it to the next step. Very simple concept. COTBP MB requires steps:
1) Raise Sails (spinners to light stand up targets)
2) Load Cannon (stand up targets to light green arrow)
3) Sink ship (load ball & fire while arrow lit)
4) Shoot Port Royal to start MB (insert flashing)

Whichever step you’re currently on, the skill shot will advance you to the next step.

#10624 7 months ago
Quoted from EaglePin:

1) Raise Sails (spinners to light stand up targets)

This keeps getting brought up, but it hasn't been sails since the prototypes.

It's catching up to the enemy ship.

Quoted from Yelobird:

Or see if he wants to make a slightly different version for SE owners so he doesn't piss off JJP by going around them (even though the SE issue is mostly because people had no choice since JJP didn't make enough LEs).

#10626 7 months ago

Ya sorry guys it sold in literally 2 minutes, hopefully JJP will start selling them again to SE owners

I really like the plastic behind the BP targets. The color needs to match the BP though.

I'm guessing that the qualifying rules for COTBP are the same as the prototype JJPOTC's. eaglepin is correct with this, but … each qualifying attempt gets a little harder. According to what Eric told me (playing a game with him on a prototype), it's kind of like a 3 point shot in basketball. The 3 point shot is the cannon bulls eye shot that sinks the ship. The other possible qualifiers are worth 1 point - hitting the side of the ship or BP skill shot. For the first COTBP MB you need a total of 3 points with those combinations to be fully qualified for MB. The next COTBP MB you need a total of 4 points. The next 5 points, and so on.

The BP door behind the gold targets looks fantastic! Will this be available on your new site?

does the brown paper need to be removed for the LE topper?

PROTOTYPE!

That's just raw filament. Needs to be sanded, painted and glass put in the window. And LED attached.

Did anyone notice the spinner decal?

Yup. Trying to not let people order too early, want to make sure we can make them in a viable timeframe. Also wanted to get the stickers in, the first one arrived today.

Someone was selling a Devil’s Triangle toy from the limited edition. All the SE owners are looking for them and JJP wont sell them to us anymore

yup. this is the progression.

so basically my strategy is just get the green cannon arrow lit. let the ball drop out of the pearl and then lock a ball in the chest to get another skillshot chance and.... voila! a free 'three point shot.'

ezpz Black Pearl multiball.

#10640 7 months ago
Quoted from 3pinballs:

Anyone

#10641 7 months ago

Yes. Generally most plastic pieces come with protective paper on both sides.

When you take off your playfield plastics for any maintenance check them for backing paper to remove, mine had it on all of them.

#10642 7 months ago

also thanks to this thread i managed to put up some seriously solid barbossa and norrington games at the brewery tonight (3ish million, wizard modes with norrington, etc).

nice to see the thread have some good old fashioned strategy discussion as opposed to the normal mods/troubleshooting/playfield archival preservation society discussion.

I guess fast ball pushes the diverter up and the kraken is on the rubbery sticky things and can move up a couple of mm. It’s the soft shots that might be diverted by the kracken pushing down on the diverter. Anyway thanks for confirming my kraken is not the only one that sits low and pushes the diverter down. With the plastic underneath the kraken still sits properly and the diverter can raise unaffected by this mod. It’s good to see the ball travel smoothly around the maelstrom. The mod does look awesome. As do the kraken blades. Also the flipper covers are ok too.

My kraken pushed the diverter down quite a bit as well, after install had many more toilet flushes than before. I tilted mine up w/ rubber feet, not ideal, and the kraken still pushes down on the diverter a bit, but shots go around the maelstrom much more consistently now.

Coin on the chest obscures the lock. Makes no sense.

It's one of those covers that you have to slide out of the way, keeps the gunk out of the mechanism.

Ahhh who cares, the chest doesn't close anyhow!
