Quoted from zaphX:

The LE has a black box on the back of the panel which reads "MICRO PLAY." The CE does not have this.
Here is before/after on the monitor settings. Click and you can arrow between the two.

Very interesting. I noticed this right away when looking at my Pirates LE next to my Dialed In and WoZ. Pirates monitor looks washed out. I adjusted the settings, but no matter what I change, it's not even close as vibrant as DI.

The pics posted earlier of the CE monitor look so much better.

well..does that mean cheaper monitors on POTC Standard and LE than on WOZ, DI and Hobbit? And the old original style only on the POTC CE?

Only a JJP collector would be able to check on that

After looks much better, nice. What settings did you modify?

DCR on and color set to sRGB.

Quoted from tonycip:

is that the new code? I don't think I have the treasure outlines in the upper corners..

0.98 that has been put for a few months.

Can you snap the same exact pic but with all 3 games started on their default gameplay screen?

#4307 8 months ago

Apparently the newest machines off the line have different monitors than previous machines. For example, my LE with the build date 1/15/19 has the same monitor as Zaphx's friend's new CE (both have DVI connections and both look great). I'm assuming the switch was made on all models from HDMI to DVI since ZaphX's LE has HDMI.

Well that will suck for those of us who just got our games if the quality isn't there.

#4309 8 months ago
Quoted from Crile1:

2 drops of dawn dish soap mixed in a spray bottle of water. Spray on back of decals. This allows you to move them around. When they are at the proper position, smooth them down. You are only spraying a mist, so you don't have water running all over the place. Once you smooth them down, then grab a towel and wipe the excess water around the edges. The soapy water allows them to be repositioned and slid while you work before the adhesive sets in. Google it...there are a few youtube vids about it. It is how I've done all my art blades and even our custom decals on our boat.

Oh! Basically the window tint method. This I can do! ...and I already have the tools for window tint. Thanks.

Is yours an “older” model with HDMI or a “newer” one with DVI? I highly doubt there are any quality deficiencies with the older HDMI models. Maybe they just need some fine tuning?
I only commented because the question was brought up regarding monitor type based on model (SE, LE, CE).

Maybe someone from JJP can comment on the details of the monitor type change.

Mine is made in October and it has hdmi. Looks washed out and fine tuning on the monitor doesn‘t really have any effect. A bit of a bummer...

#4312 8 months ago

We have a new lighted treasure chest mod...speed and pattern of the light can be controlled.

Available On our website and will be in our pinside shop shortly.

Try DCR on and sRGB. It improved mine quite a bit.

#4314 8 months ago
Quoted from Crile1:

Last night I played Fountain of Youth wizard. Hit all the colored shots ("killing" the people on the screen), then it was just over. Did it time out...or was there something else I was supposed to be doing? If not, it was a huge disappointment. I thought there may be stages to get through. I really didn't get that many points (even less points then previous attempts at it). I also wish there was a bit of a pause to look at the instructions on the screen before the mode starts.

happened to me twice now. thought it was just me cause i was higher then a kite. but now i'm not the only one. so its the code. still ended up with a 4 mil score.

#4315 8 months ago

Lermods, will you be at TPF? If so I'll be picking one up most likely.

#4316 8 months ago
Quoted from javagrind888:

yes, we will have a booth there. I will bring a few of these along, but if anyone thinks they might want this or anything else, best to let us know beforehand as we will generally have limited stock on hand. Now back to the POTC thread.

Yup I’ve made it to the wizard modes separately and have noticed bugs with them like you describe. I think it’s just early code at this point.

I'll take a look at mine tonight and see what monitor type I have. I have the same build date as you.

Please have one of these for me!!! As shown in the video strobing. While JJP has a mini light in there this is SO needed and glad you finally made it. The final piece of the puzzle. I will be at your booth with cash in hand!!! Thanks

I am the lucky Pirate that got to beta test this for Rob (Lermods) you won’t be disappointed. Many selections on the lighting ie Brightness, Strobing speed. Everything hidden. Does not interfere with chest shot in any way. Great looking mod.

My wife said this the other day.....why, why is there not a lighted beating Davy Jones heart in the chest? That's the mod I want.

#4322 8 months ago

I can’t speak for Rob but ask him if he can do Red.

#4323 8 months ago

I'm going to guess the next code update will drop at TPF. Seems like a good place for 1.x to make its debut.

#4324 8 months ago

Just Played my first couple games. Question...when I plunge it to under the ship and it says "Permission to come aboard"...should it vuk to the ship?

Yes it should. Check the coil power. Default is 32 and what mine is set to.

#4326 8 months ago

Ok so I finally got it! Woohoo!

Mirrors and external sub hooked! Loving it. Also big order on The Mod Couple for most the mods placed (though I think I missed a pop bumper... damnnit!)

Nice mod, 2 questions, like someone else asked is red availible that makes the most sense. And can you make it beat only when ball lock is ready?

Congrats ! Are those regular mirror blades or the black? ^^

We do offer it in red, but it is not tied.to a specific light or sound.

#4329 8 months ago

And here is on quality of the monitor.

Current settings;

However my view on the comparison with the other JJP machines is that Pirates has all these spotlight pointing towards it. (I can actually see the reflection of them on it)

But when a covered them;

BAD73EA4-F376-49E7-A5D1-B292A985D50F (resized).jpeg

I feel like it makes a big difference.

Anyway, thanks for all the Info you all post here. Definitely helps when trying to set it right

Mine was factory set at 18. Will bump it up and see what happens.

Thanks very much for sharing! Agree on the spots. They do affect the appearance.

#4333 8 months ago
Quoted from imagamejunky:

I don't recommend increasing your contrast up so high. That will create blooming and the image won't look as crisp

This was discussed much earlier in the thread and I followed others suggestions and it was a definite improvement for me....

Let us know how you go. I seem to be having a similar issue and going to ball search st times

Straight to internal sub.

#4336 8 months ago

Any dealer/distributor recommendations for JJPOTC? This game is just too much fun. I might even splurge for a CE.

Friend was having pearl vuk problems. I checked mine which was 32 (default) and suggested he try that. It resolved the issue for him.

I'm getting my LE from Chris at KingPin Games. I think he may have 1 or 2 CE's left.

I worked with Abel Electronics for my two LEs. Gary was great and I’m very happy with the experience.

He had a CE a few weeks ago.

You should get the CE. I should have gotten the CE. The radcals and topper alone make it worth it.

#4340 8 months ago

For me it was not staring at JDepp.
Well worth the ticket

Set it to 30 and it's working fine. My try going down a hair and see if it still works.

#4344 8 months ago

Just setup my game. So far all seems good but I think the door to the canon shot may not be working.
Tried coil test #72 and nothing happens, but I do hear a faint noise. I assume the door should open and close in this test?
Any ideas?

#4345 8 months ago

Wouldn't something like this be an "easy" improvement, versus buying the CE for possibly a better display?

We have 2 ce left. All of the guys mentioned will make you happy.

#4347 8 months ago

FYI: Mezelmods now has clear plastic protectors available on their website. I know yelobird and others were looking for these!

Just ordered mine. I've ordered $200 plus in mods already.......and I won't have the pin for another 8 days!!

#4348 8 months ago

Just got mine set up thanks to @zmeny! Looks really good. No immediate issues. I may need to level the spinner a tiny bit, but it’s playing well.

Thanks Zach! Highly recommended to trust FlipNOut Pinball! He took great care of me.

I had a similar problem. It turned out not to be electrical at all. The metal door just got smushed in the canon shot lane, and had to be pried out of there physically. The coil wouldn’t fire either.

It feels like it's caught on something. Cant really lift it by hand either but don't want to force it.
