Next time you open up the machine, could you take some pictures of the boards?


Edit: I watched your stream and saw very early that the ball drained directly from the mode start. I have seen that on the JJP stream as well. Does it happen often?

The ball got stuck on the transition from the ramp to the ship. Strange that they haven’t managed to fix that yet. When I played the prototype it had the same fault.

#144 1 year ago
Quoted from KevInBuffalo:

Ok, ramp adjustment was easy. A single hex screw to tighten to lower the part where the ramp meets the ship. 1 minute fix

Ah! Awesome! That put me at ease. Thank you for taking your time explaining.

Great stream btw, so cool to hear the direct audio.

The POTC I have on location has had a bunch of really confusing chest problems

Is this a proto game? The new chest doesn`t open or close. it is static.

I don`t think the manual has been posted yet, here it is:

Missing the rules and shot map, but that will come soon i guess.

#384 1 year ago
Quoted from hillbilly:

The only constructive feedback is that I believe that there should be posts and a rubber on the upper playfield to keep the ball from falling off.

Do you mean on right side of the ship?
It is meant to fall off, but you can make it harder/easier.

Page E9 in the manual:

It makes me so happy that all the faults with the game is small and easy to fix

I am still saving up for my game.
In the meantime i hope they kill off all the small problems that have been happening to some of the games.
It is such a fun game, and the small problems might scare someone off.

This thread desperately needs key posts with all the great information.
I wish robin would make a "suggest key post" button.

Quoted from GCS2000:

Neither of us is great players but we love the pirates theme and love the toys/features on this game

I have only played the prototype, and it toot some time to wrap my head around the code.
The code is deep and wide, but they use the same base for all the chapters. Take a look at the mind map that JJP has and you will understand it better. The manual also explains everything.
Take a look at the JJP live videos, the last 4 or so they explain the code in the start of the video.

Great game!

#3556 10 months ago

My guess it that they are holding production on all the games for the new reveal. They understand that people want their games immediately after the reveal to keep up the hype.

Based on the quality of the JJP games and flexibility of a small factory, they can do small runs of all games in the future.

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

I completely agree about the QC concerns at JJP. So much so that it had delayed my purchase of POTC.

Why is this a key post?
We seriously need key posts for this thread with fixes and important info.

Regarding overload of multiballs, just go into the menus and set the difficult on achieving them up.
That’s what I plan to do when I get an overload.

#5701 8 months ago

@lermods did you make a light for the dauntless hole?

#5904 8 months ago

I am in! Bought a LE today!
I have been drooling over this pin ever since I played the proto 1 year ago. I new I had to have one, now it finally came together!

Now I just need to get space for it in the game room...

#5930 8 months ago

The stairs down to my game room is very steep. If I take the game apart, do the play field by itself, head and cabinet by themselves, will it help the weight?
Anyone done this? Tried to search the thread, but couldn’t find anything.

#5940 8 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

This is a very heavy machine!

I was struggling with STTNG and Road Show to get them down with a trolley. On Indy I took off the head and playfield , that helped a lot.

#5983 8 months ago

On the LE on location here it has metal washers under the posts by the slingshots.

#5997 8 months ago

Here is a picture from the post on one of the games on location.

669BC0B7-8F7B-405F-AF23-2EE5AC072056 (resized).jpeg

I highly doubt that this is something they have done with the game.

#6007 8 months ago

It’s such an amazing game! Hope they build a shit ton of it. It has that special something. I can’t wait to see what hogbog comes up with next


No pressure

#6073 8 months ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

I got in trouble with some of my distributors who got mad at me because they thought we would have more games... but distributors sold out of their games and we don't have any more.

When listening to jack about that and the fact that WOZ YBR will only be sold trough distributors, it kinda sounds like he is trying to get The distributors to have more stock. In other words, it’s the distributors fault that not more POTC are out there.

#6090 8 months ago

hogbog Could you please chime in regarding the posts and the dimensions of the washer underneath?
And would it affect gameplay to switch to star posts? (i know the aestetics would defiantly change.)

#6205 8 months ago
Quoted from bigdaddy07:

that BK looks bad ass

Indeed it does! The artwork looks great. My guess is that the code will be the same as all the other Stern games, the shots look similar to othe games by Riche. It’s a safe bet on normal.

Sorry for the sarcasm. Just so tired of samey games from stern

#6231 8 months ago

Keefer has been sick for a few weeks. My guess is that they where going to launch it at Texas.
My next guest would be at MGC April 12th.

#6351 8 months ago
Quoted from gliebig:

It added a second player with 3 balls.

I think this is a setting, but i can't find it in the menu. They talked on the stream about adding a player whenever.

#6394 8 months ago

Regarding the monitor sag

I would definitely go with the mod couple descriptions. Skip the wood blocks and do it right. Adjust the places where you are supposed to adjust.

Just my 2 cents.

#6412 8 months ago
Quoted from Lazar:

Where is the #45 switch?

look at page C-106

#6486 8 months ago
Quoted from wesman:

I then noticed some feint streaks, and saw these side cabinet corner wires peaking up and over the cabinet. I cleaned the glass, and the streaks they made aaaaaaall the way up both sides, were still there, seemingly scratches.

Did you slide out the glass with the brass screws all the way out? That would scratch the glass.

Quoted from wesman:

then saw these screws bored all the way through the bottom of the cabinet.

They are like that from the factory.

#6487 8 months ago
Quoted from joseph5185:

And I heard there was an issue with the trunk opening and closing. I read a little about it here. Is it just the chest arm or something that may need tweaking?

Thy removed the opening and closing of the trunk on all the production models.

#6559 8 months ago
Quoted from JustLikeMe:

Does anyone have a recommendation re where to order, preferably in Europe?

Try pinball heaven in UK, he sells Cliffy protectors. or best of pinball.


#6798 8 months ago

The key post thing is something I have been shouting about for some time. I wish robin would make a “suggest key post” system.
There are some key posts in this thread, most of them is a head scratcher how they became a key post.

#6884 8 months ago
Quoted from steigerpijp:

Second innings.. fork worked itself loose again.
Loctite failed this time but hoping that added lock-nuts will do the trick for the long haul.
Derek, Maybe you can add it to your allready comprehensive problem/fix list , good work!

steigerpijp what is the size of screws and lock nut you used?

#7018 8 months ago

Played some games yesterday at a local place. Got an air ball from the flippers straight into the pearl underneath. The ball got stuck, then dropped down into the cabinet. I will definitely get the pinball universe protector!

does anybody sell these to Canadians / North Americans?

#7036 8 months ago
Quoted from Clint12:

Anyone help ??? Always locating balls

Are you sure you have all the balls? Remove all balls, count them and drop them in. Then play a game and see how it behaves. Also check if they are magnetized.

I am transporting my game today, anything I have to do? Pack the ship so it doesn’t move or something like that? Or am I good to go?

#7955 7 months ago

ahoy matey!

LE 143 signing on!

558568F3-059B-43FE-9DFC-F8D90A455FE3 (resized).jpeg

Been waiting for this game for a long time!

It has a tons of problems, more to follow in the tech tread.
Probably the first game made that Monday after a weekend with too much rum.

#7957 7 months ago

I had probably 50 games on the prototype a year ago, and 20+ on location, so I know i will love it

I have changed my pirate lanes so liars dice can be chosen on 2nd pirate lane. Such a good video mode, a video mode that actually impacts your score in a negative way.

#8627 7 months ago

Great update! Looking forward to playing it.

Added hat/eye patch decorations to HSTD photos

Made me laugh!

#8641 7 months ago

@pinball_keefer would it be possible to hold the tilt bonus lost screen longer to rub it in? And for me to get a picture of it in the competition to get the highest bonus lost.

#8644 7 months ago

Ooh! That is a great suggestion! Who is the biggest looser

#8646 7 months ago

Just a quick question , I am struggling to reach one wizard mode. (No luck yet)
How many of you have reached all 5 in a game and needs the final wizard mode ASAP?

#8691 7 months ago
Quoted from dkammer:

When you receive a map reward, sometimes the standard callout for the award plays before the map animation and callout are complete. Essentially, this ruins the anticipation.

another thing, when you receive an award from the MAP award, you can see it in the play field before he announces it.
It is a twofold for me, it is great not to have to look up at the screen to see what i got, at the same time it ruins the surprise.

#8941 7 months ago
Quoted from zaphX:

I had an idea. How about a virtual POTC competition?

What about this:

Weekly challenge.
New character each week.
3 balls, extra ball off.

Post your score

#9262 6 months ago

Character you select, should all have a minus traits? I know that Keefer is a master of balancing, something in me just wants all the characters to have a minus traits.

Anybody else?

Did you send the ball by hand, or with the flipper?

#12735 45 days ago

I think you should try it again, sending it with the hand will not give you the same result as with the flipper.

Set up the camera, shoot it 10 times or so, and have a look then.

#12773 41 days ago

Don’t forget that you can stage the flippers. Press it half way in, lower flipper activates. All the way in, the rest. An excellent opportunity to learn flipper staging. (That means me too!)

This has been discussed to death. I am so happy that this game is not a DVD player. Keep the videos perfectly short. Love the game, and the videos. It is perfect.

If someone makes a direct copy of the topper bottle, I could understand that it would be a problem. A new idea, no worries.
