#9781 6 months ago

So if I have this right...there are 4 collectors edition unspoken for? No limited editions and several standards?

#9789 6 months ago

Is the SE that much different?

#9793 6 months ago

I know the differences but is it something that is really noticeable vs seeing it on paper. It’s a difference of 1k...I wouldn’t mind buying the SE (being they are the only thing left lol)...I think the only thing I’d be missing is the GI lighting

#9812 6 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

Not sure about your part of the world, but in the US at least the only edition available is the SE. If you can, get the LE and if you want to spend get the CE.

Unfortunately it looks like the LE and CE is a no go...they are completely sold out and not on the assembly line at this point. He’s making Wonka’s now

#9997 6 months ago

Ok I think I’m going to pull the trigger and get the SE...I swear if the LE comes back out, I’ll be so pissed haha

#10001 6 months ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

No worries ALL models are awesome. The only regret you would have is not getting one!

I think my biggest regret will be the GI lighting and star map

#10110 6 months ago

Just picked up one of the last few remaining POTC SEs from Automated services...said they have 4 left in their stock just FYI!

#10163 6 months ago
Quoted from Blackzarak:

What pitch is the best to set potc? Just got mine in today SE model.... yup yup.. I'm finally in the club I'm excited[quoted image][quoted image]

Mine ships tomorrow!!

#10257 6 months ago
Quoted from dts:

But I just got an email from JJP and Jack said this morning no more LE parts to be sold to SE owners. I know of a pinsider working on a mod for the spinning pirate, so maybe it doesn't matter.

That sucks. My SE comes tomorrow and I was hoping to order a few of the parts

#10281 6 months ago

Its in!!! This is AMAZING!!!!

#10285 6 months ago

So I was just playing..the LED screens both just went out...music was playing still, game was still active....but they went black (both main screen and mini). A reboot got it back to working again...What should I be checking for?

#10291 6 months ago
Quoted from Soulrider911:

I must say Automated customer service has been top notch, I have never ordered from them before.

I ordered my SE from Automated late Wednesday...already got it today at 2:15pm!

#10292 6 months ago
Quoted from brucipher:

Mine did this exact same thing one of the first times I had it on. Power cycle fixed it and it has never happened again. I reported this here and someone else said the same thing happened to them, never to happen again. Hopefully just a fluke...

According to the change log for .99, it fixed some monitor issues. I’m still on .98. I’m going to update it tonight

#10297 6 months ago
Quoted from tonycip:

I have a couple more of these shooter rod's if interested shoot me a PM[quoted image]

How much? Thx!

#10299 6 months ago

These were in the coin box...where should they go on the PF?

#10317 6 months ago

So this is my first NIB...I am impressed...its my 3rd machine in the collection, but my 4th machine I ever owned...I am impressed so far with JJP's quality...I know there were some issues with the pops, but mine looks to be so far in great shape...I did have them send me the kit with the washers just to play it safe...I will say..they are very responsive...I sent an email about a missing plumb bob, and I had a response within 3 mins through email...the person I emailed quickly got all my info, registered my game and got me a shipping notice for the one missing part...very impressed overall...Can't wait to get into this game really deep...yes its an SE, but I don't know any better since I never played the LE...I love it! I've already been eyeballing the hell out of different mods lol

#10324 6 months ago
Quoted from 3pinballs:

ball stuck on upper playfield 1st ball played, bummer. the upper ramp is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch lower than the ramp....any ideas.
Also, no washers on either side... they look good, but need to get kit from JJP[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I emailed them yesterday about the washer kit...should ship Monday. They were quick to respond!!

#10330 6 months ago

Is the the ship supposed to move all way left and all the way right?

#10353 6 months ago

Is there any way to get this more centered?

#10355 6 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

Probably have to widen out the mounting holes on the bracket for the assembly and slide it over. It's too close to drill new mounting holes adjacent to the existing ones.

I’ll leave it then lol

#10421 6 months ago

The GI is all white but all inserts are RGB

#10425 6 months ago
Quoted from gumnut01:

Wait until you do a chapter like Infiltration and the whole playfield goes red. The white would be fine but the RGB GIs do a great job at setting the mood during different stages in the game. Most important are the RGB inserts though.

I’ll never get to experience this unfortunately lol. Damn it I wish he had made more LE’s!!! LoL

#10444 6 months ago

Damn that really sticks out lol

3E8DA449-C4F2-488F-B024-1BDBA78E20E3 (resized).jpeg
#10465 6 months ago

So I emailed JJP today about buying some of the toys for the SE...I was told only LE/CE customers are allowed to buy any upgraded parts from those machines. Quite sad about it..I only wanted the Devil’s Triangle and the Spinning Tom LoL. The good news is they did sell me the shaker motor!

#10471 6 months ago
Quoted from Dr-pin:

Why dont you just say you have the le and the toy broke when you polished it?

They know by your serial #

#10619 5 months ago

Does anyone have a Devil’s Triangle they would be willing to sell? JJP is being kind of odd about selling any LE toys to SE customers. (Yes I bought the SE a bit late and missed out on a LE unfortunately)

#10621 5 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

Someone just posted one. Marketplace?

It sold within seconds. I messaged him quick too lol

#10636 5 months ago
Quoted from Soulrider911:

Ya sorry guys it sold in literally 2 minutes, hopefully JJP will start selling them again to SE owners

The way they make it sound, this pin will never be made again lol. Better stock up on plastics!

#10638 5 months ago
Quoted from 3pinballs:

What sold in minutes

Someone was selling a Devil’s Triangle toy from the limited edition. All the SE owners are looking for them and JJP wont sell them to us anymore

#10655 5 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

It'll be made again, at least the LE will. Question is will be be shoehorned in between runs this year, or wait until after GnR...

I really hope so. I’ll end up selling my SE and getting the LE

#10813 5 months ago
Quoted from statsdoc:

This beast takes a lot to dial in, but man is it worth it. I feel like I have tweaked all over the place, but the games just get more and more rewarding and fun to play!
I just installed a shaker and Invisiglass on my SE. i managed to get the Devils Triangle mountain piece too. It is all coming together nicely.

I’m dying to find a Devil’s Triangle. Can’t get my hands on one for nothing

#10828 5 months ago
Quoted from lordloss:

I lifted my pf and saw my game was marked 982, kinda fun be in the last bunch of the last batch of games

You made me go under and look lol. I’m #921

D8903904-7456-45CD-91BD-500F0B5EDBD8 (resized).jpeg
#10859 5 months ago

Found this little door mod on the internet for the back of the black pearl. I’ll paint it up tomorrow and see how it looks. Anyone print one of these and paint it? Which brown did you use?

#10916 5 months ago

If JJP ever releases more LEs, I may seriously consider selling the SE just to get the few extras. I love this game though. It’s insane

#10943 5 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

Is there someone with an SE who will take some pics and test some stuff out for me? There could be some cool mods in it for you.

I have an SE as we discussed last night. Anything you need let me know

#11060 5 months ago
Quoted from WolfManCat:

Not sure if it needs to be enabled but I'm pretty sure you can test it in settings.

It’s in the coil settings

#11101 5 months ago
Quoted from arcadem:

I understand that a printed manual will not be provided for any model including the CE'S. Did you SE owners get a CD with your games and is it, if you know, as thorough as previous JJP manuals? They have been the very best.

Not even a CD...only the manual on the machine itself in the settings.

#11103 5 months ago

Would any LE/CE owners be willing to purchase a Devil’s Triangle from JJP and sell to me? I’ll pay extra for your services

#11134 5 months ago

Would either Mod couple or Mezel mods be willing to make their own version of the Devil’s Triangle for us SE owners?

#11177 5 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

So... who's got a SE?

Yeah, still playing with the speed and coincidence of stars, but you get the idea. And that plastic is a production sample, no dots in the real one.

That’s sweet!!!!!

#11234 5 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

I guess I've never seen an SE in person.

Did you still want me to check those voltage on those plugs?

#11236 5 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

Nope, already confirmed We're golden.

I went to work and never came back to the basement lol. So does it work? Lol

#11238 5 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

Oh wait, that's right you didn't measure the voltage. Yeah, if you can just measure DC voltage at that plug just to make sure. I would bet almost 100% that it is connected to power, it would be too much change for them to not keep it the same for game versions.

Absolutely. I will check tomorrow for you!

#11239 5 months ago

I have an SE and my flippers are black/red

#11257 5 months ago

For those of you with cliffys, did you put the washer back on the post near the tortuga hole?

#11259 5 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

On another note... does this get anyone excited?

I got a little excited yes lol

#11289 4 months ago
Quoted from JosiahCox:

Procrastination almost made me miss this title but I am going to go pick up a NIB standard next weekend. Already got cliffy protectors ordered and I can’t wait to get this thing home. My only sadness is that I’ll be missing the RGB GI effects. Gotta say, I’m not sure why that needed to be stripped from the standard. I get the other LE and CE separations but this is a feature that imho, should have been included with all models.
Anyways, looking forward to joining the club and this thread has been hugely helpful with knowing what stuff to look for on the new game. Thanks everyone!

I have a standard and I don’t even notice the gi being white. All the inserts are RGB...here’s a photo of my standard all lit up. It still looks so amazing

#11291 4 months ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

Its an Awesome game in ANY model! Play it and enjoy!!!

I’m waiting on you to tell me you made a Devil’s Triangle for us SE folks lol

#11296 4 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

FYI I also have the Devil's Triangle rock upgrade coming. It won't be a copy of the original, we're considering it an upgrade as we think LE/CE owners will also want it with the unique features.

I need something to fill the void in that area!!

#11345 4 months ago
Quoted from splitcms:

I just ordered a POTC from a distributor today. Hoping for the best when I receive it


#11351 4 months ago
Quoted from splitcms:

Yes SE. only one they had and it was a miracle to even get, so I can’t complain.

I have an SE and love it. I was happy to just get one!!!

#11437 4 months ago

Any update on the star map for the SE owners? When will they be shipping?

oh i love you guys!!! Order is already placed!! Thanks!!

#11523 4 months ago

The hurry up in my opinion is a bit to quick. I never hit it. The ball will be at the top of the playfield and it’ll finally come down to a flipper and it’s already counted down

#11529 4 months ago

I finally got a Devil’s Triangle Rock formation but for the life of me can’t figure out which screw holes I use to attach it!

image (resized).jpg
#11539 4 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

You may not have holes, it's not like really integrated into the layout as much as just stuck on top of the rail. Btw, there are little, tiny spacers under the screws/rock (this is like the 5th situation where tiny spacers were used that YOU TOTALLY LOSE EVERY TIME). You may not need them, I haven't put it on without them yet, but if you didn't get them I bought a huge assortment from Amazon (because I have lost a few already) and could send you some.
[quoted image]

I’ll end up 3D printing some spacers tomorrow lol

#11541 4 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

LOL, that is quicker. I kept finding stuff around the house to cut and use as spacers when I lost them.

Can you tell me the diameter of the spacer?

#11542 4 months ago

And done! Bought 2 1” screws and 3D printed my own little spacers. Balls rolls thru perfectly!

#11573 4 months ago

Few more steps and some soldering and the trunk mod will be complete!

7262455D-7490-49CA-8C5F-9FE846E3255D (resized).jpeg
#11581 4 months ago

Where can I find these connectors/crimps that go into the harnesses on the game?

#11586 4 months ago

Sometimes I feel as if JJP washed his hands with pirates and just let it go

#11588 4 months ago

So I have a new issue...the trunk release won’t release the balls. The coil is firing and the little door moving but the balls wont move out past...anyone have this issue before?

#11590 4 months ago
Quoted from LTG:

They magnetized ?
LTG : )

No. Looks like the bracket just needed a slight adjustment. The arm was to far forward. Maybe a ball hit that area or something. Who knows lol

#11622 4 months ago

So one of the bulbs on the spotlights failed tonight. Started flickering then died...I emailed frank since I’m still under warranty but is there is a source of these bulbs for future? They are not the typical 12v LED Wedge...They have two 90k ohm resistors in line it appears...

#11628 4 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

Are you sure it's not just a bad connection with the bulb to the socket? It's very common. Try the electrical tape fix.

It started flickering then died. I checked the connection and they were still solid and ok

#11644 4 months ago
Quoted from gliebig:

Same happened to me. I just pulled a bulb from the coin door and used it on the spotlight.

Good idea but I still want to buy a bulb or get a replacement from them. I tried a few other 12v bulbs and they don’t work in the socket.

Edit: Found a pack of 12v bulbs that worked from my slot machine spare parts.

#11647 4 months ago

Chest mod complete! Now my SE is even better lol

#11649 4 months ago
Quoted from Heater:

Looks awesome! Can't wait to do surgery on mine!

It’s a fun mod to do yourself. I enjoyed it

#11653 4 months ago
Quoted from JohnnyPinball007:

Just wondering, after the game is over it shows these funny looking bar code things. What are they and what do they actually show?

You can use your phone camera to scan that and it will post to your Twitter feed showing your high score

#11655 4 months ago
Quoted from JohnnyPinball007:

Thanks for the info.
I have also noticed on some games it has that weird barcode on the game rules card. What does those do?

Probably takes you to a website with rules. They are called QR codes

#11666 4 months ago
Quoted from 3pinballs:

Cool.....I don't mind it being open actually as you can see how many balls are in the Chest...just my opinion.

I would agree if the balls always stayed in the trunk but sometimes they come out on other multi ball modes so the amount of balls in the trunk may not always be a true representation of what’s needed to get dead man’s chest MB

#11669 4 months ago

So on the SE, all the pop bumpers have lights. Funny thing is, during a game, only two light up (the two that light up would be the same ones that are in the LE without the motors). Is there any way to report that bug?

#11671 4 months ago
Quoted from Marcdaddy:

So I have a SE and removed the pop bumper covers, I ran a LED test and they do all light up white, blue, red. Yes you are correct on my machine those 2 do not light up during gameplay. Maybe I can message Eric and see what he says.

Same here. All 4 light up in the menu under LED test but during the game it’s def only the 2. It’s def a software related issue.

#11698 4 months ago

Any SE owners out there, I made an extra trunk mod with all the extra parts I had from my builder (direct plug and play for the SE. I’m only asking $100. If you have any interest, pm me!

#11701 4 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

FYI, Lowe's has that hinge in black.

My Lowe’s unfortunately didn’t have it. The good news is on my game I never see it. I have the trunk set where it doesn’t open high enough to expose it

#11703 4 months ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

Y wont it work.on my le?

It might work on the LE...i do not know which harnesses the LE/CE have used/not used. I know on the SE, I have a harness that ends and supplies 5v. It was a harness located at the bottom of the machine near the magnet that supplied power to the depths opto (back of playfield)
BE7565F2-1486-42DD-AAE7-9EEA30CF87AE (resized).jpeg

#11705 4 months ago

Can any LE owners tell me on the bottom right with the PF upright, have this connection in this same state (no female connected to it) tucked away?

It would be slightly left of the black pearls pink/purple harness I have labeled #1 in my game. Thanks!!

849E3BFB-D4A5-4D44-99AE-1BE696F5A0BE (resized).jpeg
#11707 4 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

You sure that doesn't go up to the BP as well? I have had my playfield propped up for so long I forgot I don't even have the BP in. I believe the plug we are using goes to the main lighting board on the BP, if that is the same one you are looking at. So that is why we made it passthrough.

It didn’t. It was just in the bundle of wires to the left. My BP has 7 connections and they are all plugged in

#11709 4 months ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

I'll check in an hour or so

Thank you

#11714 3 months ago
Quoted from Rasavage:

It’s funny you mention that, yesterday I was looking under my playfield in the maelstrom area and found two male moles connections that don’t seem to go to anything.

You have an SE?

#11716 3 months ago

So for the trunk mod, if you have an se, you can use a connector that I believe would normally be for the star map. If you have a LE or CE, you need to have a pass through with an extra connector. Both are easy. One just requires another .30 cent molex

#11734 3 months ago

My arrow for the ship is also dim like that but when you go into LED mode in the test menu, it’s as bright as could be so I think it’s just a software issue not giving enough power to the LED
