#4801 1 year ago
Quoted from DerGoetz:

Eric's design is absolutely solid, and whoever did QC on the assembly line needs a kick in the rear.

What all did you have to tweak/fix, and what was your build date?

#4802 1 year ago
Quoted from kidchrisso:

Kaneda just posted that Stern does not have it, 100% positive

The source that says stern has it is 100x more reliable.

What is the 6666 mode?

#4804 1 year ago
Quoted from gliebig:

What is the 6666 mode?

All 5 movie multiballs stacked plus Tortuga.

Quoted from Kerry_Richard:

Congrats DaveB!!! My#15 is in the box and should be opened tomorrow at 10am! I too am currious if anyone knows more about this.

Hmmmm... that’s the number I wanted as I have #15 Dialed In! Now I know where it lives at least! Enjoy the game mate!

#4806 1 year ago
Quoted from lapean111:

Everyone who is having this issue needs to make sure they removed the foam block that is screwed to the back of the cabinet. This block is only there for shipping. Jjp should update their documentation to reflect this.

Oops! Mine is working great and no issues pushing it back in. Thought it served a purpose! I’ll be removing it when I get home! Thanks!

#4807 1 year ago
Quoted from zaphX:

What all did you have to tweak/fix, and what was your build date?

My issues posted have caused me to not play a full game yet so there may be other issues but the build date was 2/12. Will look into it this weekend and hope they are minor fixes. Didn’t have much time but on first glance the screen will need some setting switched as well, but that’s just like getting a new TV I suppose. I’ll just keep dreaming of that six multiball stack.

#4808 1 year ago
Quoted from AUKraut:

Pinballlife, Marco, Titan, and others all carry mylar. Pinballlife & Titan have precut 1" square mylar pieces that are perfect for spot protection placement.

Quoted from zaphX:

The goodie bag includes lots of spare Mylar as well.

Thanks to you both for the recommendations and info!

I've read applying wax will help mylar not pull paint too much. Does that happen often with or without wax being there? Is mylar effective for covering a chip so it doesn't expand during play?

#4809 1 year ago
Quoted from WolfManCat:

Thanks for posting this. Mine was acting the same way and I didnt question it. After reworking the guide wall it feeds to the flippers more consistantly.

But how did you do it? I don't get it to work...

#4810 1 year ago
Quoted from NightTrain:

Well you're looking to move the rail to the right, so you need to elongate the screw hole to the left. This way there is room to move the rail to the left? Follow me?

Thanks. But the screw is right at the end of the lane and there's nothing left to bend. Or are you talking about the 2nd screw?

#4811 1 year ago

Is there any definition on what, exactly, the presets do?

I’m in Texas and this machine used the “Home” preset. In Los Gatos, I just used defaults and set the ball save to 5 seconds.

I was playing the Texas machine and was surprised to see an Extra Ball on Mystery level one which I’ve never seen before.
I’m guessing the Home setting must have cranked down a difficulty setting.

Was it giving it everytime? Otherwise it was just a lucky random mystery award.

Maybe just lucky! Not sure.

Were you playing Jack? Doesn't he remove the lesser valued mystery awards? (This in addition to maybe some settings might have allowed this award so early)

#4815 1 year ago

Another thing I found out. When you turn off the pro tips in between balls, the bonus animation backscreen is black. Probably a bug?

Not with ecery screen, but most...

#4816 1 year ago
Quoted from philsublime:

I'm still a little confused as well. what your saying makes sense if looking at it from the front. if your going to say more left or right we need more of a reference like looking at it from the front or from the bottom . because making the hole more to the left would seem to be the wrong way to go looking at it from the front . unless your talking about the 2nd screw witch would make the curve in the rail a little more deeper and may project the ball to the right at exit.

Pulling paint off with mylar removal is mostly a problem with older games with out a clear coated finish most new games have clear coated finishes so not much risk of that if removed properly.

Can someone with a CE post a video of the topper? Is the ship in a bottle always moving or only at certain times??? I can't seem to find video of it.

Thanks in advance,

#4819 1 year ago

Does everyone else have this rattlesnake kind of sound effect all the time? Is that supposed to sound like that? Kind of annoying...

#4820 1 year ago
Quoted from philsublime:

Gonna need a video to understand what you mean.

There is kind of a boiiing sound when you get a ball on the Pearl?

Does it happen with the volume all the way down?

Hope you can hear it. is it supposed to be coins maybe?

It happens all the time during gameplay as well. But I never hear coins dropping.

Kinda hard to tell. Does my stream video sound different to you? https://www.twitch.tv/videos/386833152

#4823 1 year ago

Oh man, listening to your game it seems like I have half the soundeffects missing. And that rattling sound is not an effect I hear on your video. Now what could that be...?

The CE topper runs continuous during game play. Stops at end of game match sequence. The lighting does stay on however. On YouTube as well as this thread there are several videos as well as the POTC CE thread in Pinside.

Quoted from philsublime:

The first thing I’d do is make sure you’re on the latest 0.98 firmware, if you’re not already.

Quoted from philsublime:

I am probably not hearing what you are but it kind of sounds like the treble is dialed Way up and the bass sounds way down?

#4827 1 year ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

Speaking of that, is there a bass adjustment somewhere in the software or hardware?

#4828 1 year ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

I think that's just bad audio recording. It's that noise right after the coil noise when you switch characters. It's also during gameplay on some occasions. I do have 0.98 installed.

#4829 1 year ago

I think I'm going for a full new install. Must be software related. I'll report how that goes...

#4830 1 year ago

Quick question guy’s how do you get all the wanted posters for high scores to show when game is idle??

#4831 1 year ago
Quoted from Wesmantooth:

how do you get all the wanted posters for high scores to show when game is idle??

in the manual page B-34:

Show Attract Mode Camera Message: specify whether to show the camera notification message during attract mode or not.
YES: show the camera message Default: YES NO: do not show the camera message

#4832 1 year ago
Quoted from Wesmantooth:

They show up from time to time. Not very often though...

They could make more out of it. My pics all look pretty much the same.

#4833 1 year ago

Just curious does anyone actually use the compass to see what their best shot is during gameplay

#4834 1 year ago
Quoted from philsublime:

check the connection of your audio out from the cpu board to the audio in (j102) on the audio amp board. it sounds like one of them is not fully inserted, therefore only giving you some of the sounds.

Quoted from Axl:

in the manual page B-34:
Show Attract Mode Camera Message: specify whether to show the camera notification message during attract mode or not.
YES: show the camera message Default: YES NO: do not show the camera message

I think that's the warning screen: this game takes your picture. Has no influence on the pics shown.

you are totally correct! sorry

#4838 1 year ago
Quoted from steigerpijp:

I was sailing trouble free untill today .. and it bums me more then any other game that its down for fixing . So much fun!
Had a wire hanging loose of the left x pearl target, no problem with that, was going to remove the ship anyway to see how it all functions down there . But now it had to come out, left mini flipper is making ground and up all the time.
Coil wiring is fine up to j108-10 , so I fear a driver board fault in a transistor
Shit happens, itll be cool, and have asked JJP tech, but is there anyone else who has maybe experienced similar and found it to be something else not ground ?

Fixed, turns out the left flipper hold was causing continual ground. Replaced the mosfet Q407 on the driver board , tested everything and all is good again , aaarrrh!

#4839 1 year ago
Quoted from philsublime:

It happens all the time during gameplay as well. But I never hear coins dropping.

It is your Chapter Select Rubber switch(es). They need to be adjusted slightly more open. The vibration from your flipper is causing one or both of them to activate. It's the sound-effect you are hearing when they are hit (sounds like ratcheting). Switch 57 or 63.

Cheers,

E

#4840 1 year ago

While in the docks, I added some salty sea weathering, and beefed up the rubber in the left chapter area entrance. That rubber wont last much longer, and just 300 games in

#4841 1 year ago
Quoted from philsublime:

But how did you do it? I don't get it to work...

I noticed the ball had a hard time clearing the sling post when it didn't ride the left ball guide all the way back down.

I unscrewed the screw that is located just behind the 6x switch. Turn the spinner horizonal to give the ball guide some clearance and bend it out a little to make a more narrow channel. The shot opening should stay the same width when you rescrew the guide back into place.

I still occasionally get a ball to fall to the sling post but it is rare, while before it was consistant 100% of the time. Hope this helps.

Lately I have been using it quite a bit. I initially thought the mini lcd was pointless, but turns out its a rather useful.

Yeah. Also very critical for setting up Pirate lane awards which adds another strategy layer to the game.

This worked. Thank you very much. Finally my game sounds like it's supposed to again.

Thank you. I'll try it like this. I think I did the opposite and tried to bend it so the 'lip' of lane points more inwards. You actually bent the part before the lip, if I understand you correctly. I'll take a pic when I do it.

#4850 1 year ago

JJP seems to have quality control issues lately. Hopefully this won't be an issue if they can achieve a steady line.
