Also wires off on the upper playfield to switches.
Wire bundle was too tight from the factory.
I clipped the zip ties for some slack.

Quoted from LOTR_breath:

Chipping around the Tortuga hole is also common. Look to see that a Cliffy protector has been installed. If not, be sure to get one.

I see that Cliffy is now making a lot in Carbon Fiber, any advantages or disadvantages to either?

Is the chest lock shot supposed to be makeable from the left flipper? I don't think I've ever actually made the shot from that side. I've assumed this is by design, but just wanted to check.

Also, does the LE's constellation map subtly depict shots to shoot somehow? I thought I read about this but cannot locate info on it now. I haven't been able to decipher it yet. Thanks!

Yes you can made the chest shot from the left flipper. It’s very narrow shot as you have to barely miss the upper right flipper to squeeze in. You also may need to turn up your flipper power. All JJP games have the flippers set too weak from factory.

Best way to make the chest shot from the left flipper is to stage flip. Push the flipper button so the lower flipper activates but the upper flipper doesn't, that way the upper flipper doesn't block the shot.

Yes the constellation map shows what shot to hit next toward the constellation bonus. Keyword search this thread for "star map" and you'll see info on it.

Quoted from EaglePin:

I just time the shot without staging. Not super easy, but not overly difficult either on my game. Just enough power to land it smoothly into the chest and so satisfying!

As well as worthy of a celebratory beverage draw afterwards while the game is paused for a new ball plunge!

I actually was asking just from a pure power perspective — mine never gets past halfway up scoop. My settings are default.

My flipper power settings are 24 for left and 27 for right.

Playfield slope is 6.3 degrees.

#17959 7 days ago

Gotta crank that power. My lowers are on 30 and upper on 26. I don't have to do anything special to make that shot. Now, making the Pirate target from a trap on the left, that takes some finesse.

Thanks to EaglePin for help with answering some questions privately and everyone else who chimed in so far.

What an amazing piece of machinery!

Relatively new owner of a POTC - searched the forum and didn’t see it called out but probably not searching the right term…

My black pearl seems to have a creaking noise (don’t know how to better explain it). It works just fine, but anyone else have this noise and a remedy? Thx.

#17963 4 days ago

Grease the two pivot points ?

If you can post a video of it, it might help someone here give an idea of what it could be. The normal sound of the ship motor can sound a bit like creaking, so tough to say offhand what it could be without more info.

I wouldn't grease anything unless you're more certain where specifically the sound is coming from. The machine was designed and operates very well without grease, so adding some unnecessarily could just gum stuff up down the road.

Hello everybody,

I would like to introduce you my recent purchase, a crazy nice topper on pirates theme.
The basis of its is that of the JJPOTC CE. Then many changes have been made. The engine noise is not annoying in game as is the case on the original, real wood from old boats was used for the contour of the LCD screen. The toper can be used on any pinball machine, Bally (Black rose for example), Stern POTC ... or can be used in decoration without operating a pinball machine. I am not the designer of this, I just bought for myself and I can get a few ones. It was presented to Eric Meunier during the DPO in Rotterdam in November 2022 and who said he was impressed by the work achieved. A few units have been made and here is the chance to get one for 1350 usd + shipping. For example. 140 usd to the USA, between 25 and 50 euros for most of european countries.
- plug and play whatever is your country
- light and speed of the boat can be adjusted with controler.
- weight included packaging 12 kilos, or around 10 without.
- usb on which you can load up to 5 hours video.
- in the package is provided a video you can see on the link below:

- this project required a lot of energy and challenges according to the creator and I really believe him when seing the product.

So first come first get, no second run can be done.
Contact me on whatsapp if you want details, videos, pictures. 00352621616922

So this is your unique chance to get a topper at a very good value for money.

Thanks to all for having taken the time to read.

Christophe.

I got this repair kit with my game and was wondering if there are instructions as to where everything goes? I know about the sling shots but what about the rest?

That’s truly awesome! Well done!!

Quoted from VisitorQ:

what about the rest?

Only 6 star posts in your kit. That would take care of the slingshots. Replace metal posts with black washers and star posts.

Your kit doesn't have more than that in your picture.

My bad, for some reason when I looked at the picture before I thought I only saw 4 posts in there.

Hmmm….looks exactly like the Elite Pinball Topper’s LCD, including the same looping rough seas video…..w/ a different foreground.

I think it looks better than Elite's topper and it's half the price. Unfortunately it's still too rich for my blood.

Hey Pirates, just finished the first round of Barrel Spotlight covers, hand painted with real twine. These slide on and snap-fit your existing spotlights. NO GLUE! PM me if you need to hide those unsightly spots!

Price is 38 for one or 68 for 2

Does anyone have the latest Beta code for POTC that I could download and install via USB?

Also to use pirates with Scorebit, what do I need? Just the Wifi dongle?

This?

Hi,

You are an owner of expensive Elite's topper, and you understand now that you paid a lot.
Look at the differences with my topper and other's one.

- engine noise is not annoying in game as is the case on the original
- real wood from old boats was used for the contour of the LCD screen.
- The topper can be used on any pinball machine
- Can be used in decoration without operating a pinball machine.
- light and speed of the boat can be adjusted with extern controler or directly on the dimmer.
- in the package is provided an video on as usb key but download the one you want up to 5 hours.

I think mine is really much better value for money.

Sell your Elite's one and buy two of mine

Christophe.

#17983 13 hours ago

Do any of these toppers interact with the game? I've seen the Elite Topper in person and didn't really see it doing so from what I could tell but I could be wrong... Sorta rinse and repeat.
