Quoted from Yelobird:

Stripper Pirate seems like more fun though! I bet pirates weren’t looking for a fine waitress!! Lol

Ya I know but the mod couple's wife. Wont let him make one of those..will she lol

#2502 1 year ago
Quoted from wcbu64:

Ha . . . I just bought one too and was thinking about how I was going to screw it up trying to break it in half. Just set it aside for later.

I bought one and don't have my game yet. Waiting for some beginner instructions on it too. I do have a cut-off saw that I have a metal cutting blade in it. Following this topic in the thread.

#2503 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballpal:

If you are playing a multiball and your last ball drains and the pin goes into ball search and it shoots it out of depths.

This happened to me a couple times tonight. I guess I will need to perform this mod.

Can you show me where exactly on the playfield it goes?

Or should I wait for an official JJP kit/procedure?

Guys, All of the Series 1 Pirates figure characters are the same scale and construction. NO saws are required to do this modification. Simply pry them apart at the articulating waist and super glue the plastic (already in there) pivot plate in so it's secure. My installation of Davy Jones is the same for Captain Jack granted he does have articulating elbows to no heat gun is needed. Trust that this is really not that hard and you can PM me any questions if you run into trouble. I do have a Jack character though I may not use him after seeing how well Davy turned out.

Thanks Dave! When you say “pry,” do you mean just pull it apart or do we need to pry with a screwdriver or something? Also, I got a Series 3 drunk Capt. Sparrow (thought it fitting to spin in the barrel) so hope it’s made the same.

I needed a screw driver but it did finally break.

Loving my Pirates LE.
Zero issues out of the box, for those keeping track.
Second game score.

Now that I have this game dialed in, it is a dream to shoot! Unfortunately, I am now to the point where I am trying to progress towards the wizard modes instead of just having fun with the muliballs. Man, this game can be brutal. I will have an amazing game followed by 10 horrible ones. Amazing how fast this game can turn on you!

I keep finding more layers and nuance. Tonight I realized how important the PIRATE inlane awards are, and how ARRR frenzy can really blow up a score coupled with multiballs.

Too funny. My daughter who normally doesn't love pinball as we do played almost the entire day saying its so dam addictive but unpredictable. One game she gets 600k the next she gets 15k lol. I'm just glad to see my kids enjoy it as much as I do but I agree at times this game just likes to keep me in my place.

I join the Arrr crew...

Arrr Frenzy is definitely the secret MVP if you are looking for high scores. Combine it with multiball(s), a playfield X and some serious spinner action and the scores just BLOW UP!

#2515 1 year ago

How does the playfield X works?

#2516 1 year ago
Quoted from pascal-pinball:

How does the playfield X works?

I second this question and add, what/where is “Super X?”

#2517 1 year ago

Ok, side mirrors: who to get from (pinballsidemirrors.com?) and what type? B/W, JJP Hobbit/WOZ, or JJP Dialed In?

I ordered b/w from pdi... waiting for them to come on Wednesday will let you know if they fit.

Thanks. I did find an Old Pinside thread that Claimed the B/W blades fit a JJP but for $200 I wanted to be sure....

#2521 1 year ago
Quoted from zaphX:

Super X is the playfield X bonus. Awarded via PIRATE outlane reward after hitting the little bonus X standup targets next to the ramps (target depending on the value that is available). It can also be awarded via Tortuga or Map mystery award.

IMO its the #1 key factor into putting up a good scoring game.

#2522 1 year ago
Quoted from ellips6:

I found it...the coil of the left flipper is loose in its bracket. I guess it is not supposed to move at all. I used a tie-wrap to stick it to the top just to try as a workaround and it works fine. How do I solve this permanently, the metal bracket is too wide and it does not seem to adjust with any adjusting screws?
Another error that I have is switch 82 'Bayou Subway Enter' left in open position. I have no idea what to do, anone had this issue and how to fix it?
Thanks again, I'm getting there!

These were my 2 problems on this NIB. Thanks to the community for the troubleshooting help.
-The weak left flipper was missing a guide (cylindrical piece) where the plunger goes into. This was fixed by my distributor a few hours after I raised it (thank you so much).

-the switch 82 error was the opto that was loose and this was fixed in seconds.

Other than this my game works perfectly, there is so much to do on this game this is unbelievable. Wow!

NYE action button while I wait for the replacement.

check my posts in this thread as I installed mine from the same website and they worked perfectly fine. JJP Hobbit WOZ

I also second Modcouple making premade DJ to sell. Just not my type of thing.

Thanks! I'm not into custom shooter rods, but yours looks awesome. May have to think on that one.

Ok so to clarify you ordered the Bly/WMS blades from that site and they fit the JJP correct? Looking to order a set of black chrome but can’t get this confirmed. Thanks.

#2528 1 year ago

Yelobird, Delt31 got his from pinballsidemirrors.com and ordered the JJP Hobbit/WOZ type. The do offer the black that you are looking for. I've ordered from them before but found the process frustrating. I had one set not arrive. USPS reimbursed me and I had to ordered another set. Guess I will give them another go.

#2529 1 year ago

Thanks. I did try emailing them a few times with no reply as they do not show the Black Mirror for JJP but I guess time will tell. Just think the black option would be spot on the right look for this theme.

Im curious man of infinite pinball knowledge... lol Why do they use different doors for export machines?

#2533 1 year ago

Different style of mechs for coins - sometimes electronic mechs which can be setup for different sized European currency.

#2534 1 year ago

I’ve had a couple of stuck balls so far. It seems to happen in two areas:

1. On the shelf to the right of the Pearl (usually after going overboard.)
2. Under the Pearl itself on the left side (which is more worrisome since the boat keeps a-rockin’.)

Places to keep an eye on.

I have an extra new coin door for sale. I replaced mine from my ce with one powder coated to match, so the version you are looking for, I can get to you.

#2538 1 year ago

For those who might be interested, we have a lighted sidelights mod available on our website and soon in our pinside shop.

Couple of minor issues, I hope.....

1) added a player during my first ball and the flippers went dead.
2) during a game both screens went dead. Shut it down and it came back.
3) I keep getting check switches after power up and it’s usually has to do with the ship that the ball hits and all’s I do is move it and it’s goes green.

You'd want the right door and Pirates sticker. Contact Shannan at Jersey Jack Pinball. sfaccone@jerseyjackpinball.com

#3 is normal (but annoying.). It shows up if the ship hasn’t been hit/bullseyed in the last X games.

For the other issues, have you upgraded to 0.98?

#2542 1 year ago

Yes it is on .98. I have a CE and it came with it.

3 is normal. If the ship isn't "hit" for a few games, it flags this to check that the ship is actually working. You can just ignore it and it'll go away once you hit the ship in a game.

High scores on my Pirates :

LTG : )

#2545 1 year ago

I cannot lock a ball in the chest on the fly. I have to cradle and hit dead on. Even then it doesn't make it up about 40 to 50 percent of the time. The fork works. I've already cranked the right flipper up three past standard. Should I keep increasing flipper power or is there something else I should check. It is level at 6.5 degrees.

When you say the fork works, have you removed it and tightened the 2 screws inside the mech? Mine was very iffy as you describe, requiring full power and direct hit. It is substantially improved after tightening.

#2547 1 year ago

Skipnatty is live with Pirates of the Caribbean and showing how he puts up ridiculous scores like this! Tune in and hang out for his first stream on Buffalo Pinball: http://www.twitch.tv/buffalopinball

Oh boy...what two screws?

#2549 1 year ago
Quoted from evh347:

If any JJPOTC owners have been hitting the chest fork legit and wondering why the balls aren't locking like they should into the chest, this is the fix you want to try first.
I removed the five screws holding the fork VUK and discovered two screws holding the fork to the assembly were very loose. After tightening those screws, the lock works as it should.

These 2 screws.

#2550 1 year ago
Quoted from evh347:

Wow! Thanks for the fast reply! They were loose. Wasn't tough to fix. Putter her back together now. Will update.
