Hey guys I’m interested in a potc , does the standard have that starry field in the background. ?

#9598 6 months ago
Quoted from Blackzarak:

I'm in the same boat interested in the standard but wondering is there such difference in gameplay and features worth waiting for a LE to pop up. I read theres no RGB on the playfield or star field.
I really dont care about the star field but does the RGB make a difference? Does RGB playfield mean all those changing colors on the arrow indicators will be just white?

yeah Im just going to wait until something pops up. I learned my lesson that a desired pin always shows up in the listing at some point, always.

#9601 6 months ago

Did POTC ever come with radcals?

#9607 6 months ago
Quoted from heni1977:

zaphx I am liking the radcals, but wondering what the installation is like and what kind of edge you have on the radcals. Could you take a side pic showing the thickness of these? I am guessing they just lay over the decal?

yes can you share how you did this? I wanted radcals on my woz rr, do they just go right on top of decal?

#9706 6 months ago

Finally found a CE for sale near me. Can't wait to get it! I haven't really watched the movie, but Im a fan of the pirate theme. Maybe I will add a goonies mod.

#10136 6 months ago

my CE I got has radcals. Did all CE have radcals? Is there any way I can damage them by screwing in the legs too tight? I thought I heard a crack when I screwed in one of the bolts and I didn't even do it that tight.

#10137 6 months ago

Oh and also my topper is relatively noisy, not too bad, but audible. I love it, its awesome, is there any maintenance required on it?

#10188 6 months ago

The Radcals on POTC CE are great, but they aren't as shiny and blinding like the Dialed in CEs.

#10268 6 months ago

Does anyone know if the CE came with a certificate or not?

#10369 6 months ago

Hey guys I’m new to potc and I just played a few games . The ball has gotten stuck three times already right after launch right under the black pearl somewhere . Search function does nothing . Then I have to behind the machine lift it a bit then it pops out from the right door on the black pearl . Anyone have a fix for this ?

#10372 6 months ago
Quoted from DrJoe:

Adjust your playfield pitch to 6.5 to 7 degrees and make sure it’s level left to right, otherwise the ball hangs up in the subway and doesn’t reach the VUK.

I bought this from a friend the pitch is literally like all the way up . I never seen a pin set like that . Hind legs all the way front legs short all the way . Is that normal ?

#10378 6 months ago

Hey guys so again new to POTC I have only played a few games. I noticed that my treasure chest is wide open, is that the way its supposed to be?

#10385 6 months ago
Quoted from Soulrider911:

Sadly they removed the open / close functionality

Oh weally?? For like all models in production?

Quoted from vireland:

They just sent this out on the support list for JJP. It offers a kit to minimize damage from the sling posts and a half price offer for a replacement (spare) playfield.

Is this for all POTC models including CE?

#10429 5 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

If the playfield is damaged, I'm assuming. CE is one of the choices when it asks what model you have (though it also asks for your serial number, so they should know that anyway).

Lucky for me it looks like my CE already has those washers installed .. phew. Didnt want to do any work if I didnt have to.

Quoted from Breger1:

ebay.com link » Pirates Of The Caribbean Standard Edition Pinball Machine Jersey Jack In Stock
I purchased mine from Classic Game Rooms, my first time using them. Purchased on Tues, arrived follow Monday. I did have to call them Thursday to push along the shipping as they state ships within 24 hours. they have 2 left

I had good experience with Classic Game Rooms and my Black Knight LE. Came without any hiccups and or damage. Good luck.

#10477 5 months ago

Ok this machine is heavy. Whats the easiest way for me to lift it to adjust the feet on the legs. I think the incline needs adjustments. Any tips ?

Leveling my pin fixed this issue just in case someone else has this problem. Now to play! It looks like there is lots to do and learn! Can't wait!
I asked this before, but does anyone think the CE topper needs maintenance.. mine makes a creaking noise, maybe some lube?

#10550 5 months ago
Quoted from zaphX:

I think the main fix is to drop the speed on it to 4 or so.

I didn’t realize the topper speed could be adjusted cool I’ll look for setting

#10575 5 months ago
Quoted from steigerpijp:

Finished my final run of CE shooters today 8 pc’s, 4 of each version.
This totals 25 produced, and the demand has slowed down lately so this probably was just the right nr to meet it .
I have some raw stock left. Made an LE trading company version, maybe there are others who would like a special character version , if so let me know .
As always comes with matching barrel to fit inside the game .
Pm for more info if needed outside of the dedicated topic for it.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

wow looks like something from a movie.

#10603 5 months ago

Man POTC is crazy. There is so much to do. I love JJP they have so much on the play field to explore and do. Whats up with that pirate that turns around like crazy at the pop bumpers? What is he doing?


#10659 5 months ago

POTC is pretty damn amazing as are all JJP games, but is there like a simple rule/ guide sheet for how to play and whats going on? Anyone have a link?

#10663 5 months ago

At least potc picture at the end of the game doesn’t show my double chin like dialed in does

#10840 5 months ago

Hey guys I just noticed Today that my right side radcal has a very slight bubble underneath it . I can press it in. It’s mild hardly noticeable have no idea how that happened must be a manufacturing imperfection anyone else have Same issue ?

#10864 5 months ago

See that little bubble on the right radcal ? It’s minor and needs a certain angle to see it I can push it in a little bit then it pops out must have been a manufacturing issue ?

#10868 5 months ago
Quoted from mountaingamer:

I think replacing that side would be a pain. I wonder if you could needle prick it then hit it with a heat gun just to warm up and activate the adhesive and then use a roller to compress it back down - then put something up against it until it cools... I doubt you would ever see the needle hole, and not sure it would work but my guess is JJP just sends another radcal. That or just try the heat gun without the needle. Either way talk to JJP first

Thanks for the advice I’ll contact them. I guess it’s so minor I’m probably not going to mess with it , but will see what they say

#10870 5 months ago
Quoted from zaphX:

What was your build date? I'd be inclined to see if it resolves itself over time, hoping the air eventually makes its way into the porous wood.
But if it was many months ago, maybe that is not gonna happen...

Looks like a December 2018 build, so its been about 6 months

#10874 5 months ago
Quoted from zaphX:

Poking a needle through the thick plastic radcal is a different beast though. Much more difficult and will leave an unsightly blemish as compared to a thin paper decal.

Just wondering how this happened can’t be from moving it , nothing touched the sides there is no obvious impact . Kind of seems glue didn’t fix well there

#10876 5 months ago
Quoted from zaphX:

Just speculating...the installer probably went a little too quickly and just trapped air in there. Same way air bubbles happen in traditional paper decals.
I doubt there is any problem with the glue, it is very strong and you said it sticks briefly when pushing it in.
I'd try the wallpaper roller though, I bet you can squeeze that air to the top and get it smooth.

So aim up not down ?

Hey guys this volume control in the front of the machine on my POTC CE, is there a way it can control the main volume like it does on my Dialed In ,or is it only for headphone use?

#12951 25 days ago
Quoted from GnarLee:

my front volume buttons control main volume of machine. There is probly a setting in menu for what it does (assuming)

Yes menu setting thanks ! Don’t suppose same thing for woz ? I’ll check into it
