Quoted from vireland:

It seems to vary. I dialed ours back to 22 so it makes it into the Black Pearl consistently but isn't slamming into it. some people have problems with anything less than 32. You'll just have to see how yours is. Be sure and request the black pearl opto protector from your distributor.

Are these opto protectors for sale anywhere? Getting a nib SE this week and want to make sure it's good from the start.

JJP is offering them for free. Request from the support form: http://store.jerseyjackpinball.com/Support-Form/

The BP window mod also offers protection: https://magicalproductions.miiduu.com/black-pearl-stand-up-target-illuminated-window-jersey-jack-pirates-of-the-caribbean

Someone with an SE who wants the spinning pop bumpers want to investigate their game for me? If possible, your work will be rewarded.

Quoted from bgwilly31:

Ok The pirate lane awards confuse me. I never know what i should really be picking.
Except for when i find light arrr frenzy. However arr frenzy is not always available to pick. So what qualifies it to even be picked?
Also How do i start Playfield X. Ive had people tell me super X = PF X.?? Doesnt seem right though.
SO to break down these questions down.
1.) What qualifies Arr frenzy to be available on the compass.
2.) How to start PF x?
3.) What is super X?
4.) Once u get shot X after you start it do you then have to hit the stand up for how much the X will be worth?
Thanks in advance fellas. Definitely feel like my confusion with this is whats holding me back from multi million games.

1) Look at your game's settings (frequency is set there). Arrr Frenzy isn't offered until you've completed the PIRATE lanes so many times. And then, once you've played Arrr Frenzy, you can't play it a second time until you've completed the PIRATE lanes an additional number of times.

2) Assuming by "PF x", you mean a playfield multiplier, then yes - this is what Super X is.

3) See #2. To start Super X, you need to have it selected as your PIRATE lanes award when you complete them and then shoot the PIRATE award target (to left of the chest) to collect it before you complete the PIRATE lanes for another award. Once you've collected it at the PIRATE award target, you then need to shoot the multiplier target that sets what the multiplier value is and activate the multiplier (for 30 secs by default). The first time you collect it, only the 2X target is lit to activate it. The second time, 2X and 3X are both lit. The third time, 2X, 3X and 4X are lit. And so on ...

4) Yes. When you collect Shot X at the PIRATE award target, all five (2X, 3X, 4X, 5X, and 6X) multiplier targets are lit. Whichever one you hit determines the multiplier value applied to your very next shot. Theoretically, you can work your way up to a 6X Super X multiplier running and then activate a 6X Shot X for a total of 36X multiplier on your next shot. This takes real precision timing and accurate shooting though to pull off.

Watch this Karl DeAngelo video to see him score a 24X(?) shot for 21 MILLION points!

My shot X target is usually my worst shot, like the pops or lock chest target. So much pressure.

Also started to use the bonus x targets on the pearl. Like how if you already have 2x the next time you hit the targets it lights the 3x and so on. Playing Scrum I’m trying to set these up for the 6x on first ball and then I don’t have to worry.

Thanks big fish for the summary, had not thought of the stacking that makes shot X valuable. Always thought shot X was the poor cousin of super X.

Not sure if it needs to be enabled but I'm pretty sure you can test it in settings.

Yep - Shot X is most valuable when used in combination with an active Super X. To do so is tricky though as, due to the time limit on Super X when activated, you ideally want to hold off actually starting the Super X until you have Shot X ready for collecting at the Pirate target.

Then ... once you have successfully activated both sequentially, getting the ball under control immediately and then making the desired shot is another challenge!

Actuated chest mod kit is available for order (pre-order?). Will take a few weeks to put it all together but if you want to get in line: https://magicalproductions.miiduu.com/jpinballs-actuated-chest-mod-jersey-jack-pinball-pirates-of-the-caribbean

#11064 82 days ago

Given the last one was pretty decent, didn't add or really subtract to the series though, I wouldn't mind Depp getting his work and dignity back.

Guys my SE is arriving in a few days ( couldnt find a LE ) and I was thinking about getting a full set of the powdercoated Gold Hobbit trim/legs from JJP. It looks like it would look pretty cool.

#11066 82 days ago

Oh nice, never saw those before. I just painted my TOM lockbar gold (for testing) and it came out great. I am coating it with automotive clear and it should be pretty bulletproof. It was a test before I did the legs and such. The cost of PC was just too much.

#11067 82 days ago

I use Robert Stone ( here on pinside ) to coat my frames, I think this color may look good.

I purchased 2 shaker motors from JJP when I got my SE (1 for future title or whatever) were non functioning, returned and they sent out new ones. Call support tomorrow, should be plug n play.

Quoted from harryhoudini:

Looks good, don't it? yelobird, get on it.
Don't bother if you are not wanting to cut wires, it's the only way to do it.
[quoted image]
I was going to go with clear skirts but I forgot I needed the base to be black as well (they are white, durr) so it looked weird. I liked to see the artwork/playfield through the clear ones. I think I'll order the bases and change them out as long as everything is cut now.

That black looks So much better! Thanks for sharing that is on my to do list when I break these games down. Thanks

FYI, you might want to change the kit description to say "Arduino Nano-compatible" since the board is definitely NOT an Arduino Nano, but a chinese knockoff.

#11073 81 days ago

I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch, but I am supposed to be getting a nib se from a distributor this month. Beyond excited because I love the game.

What was the final resolution for the skinny posts clear issue? Should I pull all the sling posts and sand any edges, then put some clear washers down? And I heard jjp is offering half price playfields, is that available to anyone or do you have to demonstrate the clear bunching issue? Any other must do things before putting plays on it? Appreciate any input

Just got it tonight, I did the pirate ship calibration but it gameplay ot seems it doesnt tilt much to the right side. In test mode it will go right, seems like it just needs to go to the right just a bit to be level.

Mine is the same way. I tried to adjust it a bit but still lists left. It doesn't really tip right (if you look at the mechanism it sort of only really tips left and then flat) too much. Maybe someone else can chime in but I've settled for left/center.

Yeah by design there is more left movement than right I think. Helps keep the ball up there a bit longer than instantly going overboard.

#11079 81 days ago

Oh that makes sense, in test mode it does go fully right so I know it works. My 8 year old wont get off of it lol.

#11080 81 days ago

Havnt searched thru the thread for all the mods but ( for the SE )has anyone found a pirate that works in size for the pop bumper like the LE/CE or the rocks on the left hand side.

#11081 81 days ago

If you notice the longer the ball
Is Up there the boat starts rocking more right. It will dip right, I believe it’s programmed and designed to be left heavy to keep the ball up longer and to not make it impossible to load the cannon

This is correct. There’s a bias to the left. You can see it in the slot in the backboard. As long as the mech isn’t "bottoming out" at the top or bottom you're good. Although, I'm not sure about it going to the right the longer the ball is up there. I think it's more of more rocking to both sides the deeper in the game you go.

No one has posted about replacement rocks, but it is on my list to make. You can't order them from JJP anymore for SE games.

The pirate that works on the pop is 7" Series 3 from Neca but they are getting hard to come by. I snapped up a few because I am making the SE spinning pop bumper mod: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/jjpotc-spinning-pop-bumpers-upgrade

Here is one: ebay.com link » Curse Of The Black Pearl Series 3 Captain Jack Sparrow Action Figure

There is this other model but I don't know what the difference is: ebay.com link » Neca Pirates Of The Caribbean Dead Mans Chest Jack Sparrow Series 3

The second one has eye makeup from the beginning part of the, I think, the second movie.

The first three are a pretty decently interwoven storyline. Fourth is tv like crap, like a b side, entirely forgettable. Fifth isn't bad, competent, but doesn't add to the first three at all.

I tried to find other figures but those Neca series 3 ones just look the best.

Anyone still waiting on a CE? I have seen some standards and LEs make it to homes, But I haven't seen anyone post about their CE arriving lately.

Flipnoutpinball had a Wonka live stream last night where they interviewed Jack. Someone from JJP was in chat, JJPLive. I asked if there is any news about POTC 1.x code, JJP replied back with "stay tuned"!

#11097 81 days ago

It was mentioned shortly here that sometimes a book appears on the backbox, where the status of the extra ball items are shown. I have nit found any description of the items to collect and how to view the current status without popping away. Could somebody please describe what to collect and how to see the status im between.

#11098 81 days ago

I understand that a printed manual will not be provided for any model including the CE'S. Did you SE owners get a CD with your games and is it, if you know, as thorough as previous JJP manuals? They have been the very best.

You may be referring to the Star Map "mystery" shots. If you shoot the Star Map when no chapters are qualified, a single shot will flash white for a second and the star field (LE and CE only) will draw a symbol representing the same shot. For example, the star field will draw the letter P if the P lane is the necessary shot. Anyway, each time you make one of these shots the star constellation book will be displayed to indicate the bonus has been collected. Collect enough and Extra Ball is lit.

#11100 81 days ago

After 7 months playing this thing I have picked up on some (not all) of the constellation shots on the Star Map.
It does give an extra layer of depth to the game!
