Nope...it was missed..lol....But I tell u this....
Steve @ JJP cant believed that it was missed...but we looked everywhere and it was missed...but the part is on its way to me tommorrow.
GREAT SERVICE AT JJP....They were all over it and apologized.

Good to hear their customer service is on it... But what does it say about their QA that they can miss such an obvious problem?

Sure its not lodged under the ship? Seems like that would be hard to miss all the way through inspection. Several have reported that and or Tom have popped off in transit. At the very least make sure its not wedged in there or your have other issues. Or should I say Joe will.....

As promised, the JJP Pirates "Disk Silencer kit" is now listed and available from our website store to ship next day. As soon as Kingpin gets my CE POTC replacement (Praying in the next week...) I will finalize the hardened neoprene replacement drive gear. For most I suspect the Silencer kit will be enough to satisfy but I am committed to finding the complete solution for the few that want a more stealthy pirate ship lol. The drive gear will take some time as I want to test it well and play with different tooth pitch configurations to determine the best option for sound and long term wear. Fairly simple install with instructions. Thanks to all for your support and feedback.

Measure Topper height. If topper does not have enough clearance with ceiling, send to KingBW for his LE.

Couldn't resist.

FOUND IT!!!!!!!!

Now this is what I sent Jack.......

Joe sent me another text that someone else was missing theirs and found it under the ship ....I am like what are the odds -- Maybe we are just missing something here and find it hard that this was be miss during QA...But I said -- I would take another look.....

GUESS WHAT....

FOUND IT -- in the very back and ........

it is also the reason why the ball was getting stuck...LMAO

Thanks again -- I will get that back to you to keep for someone else down the road

Thanks for everything Jack...Your company is awesome and the service is great as well.

On as side note --- Coin door really should have been done for this -- I think out of 200 CE Owners -- I might get a majority on this one saying that the doors being powder coated would have been better -- LOL. Just my view.

Also can you tell me the next three titles and release dates for each one -- Would help me in planning my budget..

Thanks again

I am really bothered by two things in the pic... why is the coin door on pirates and Woz black? I really do not think they should be. Did you do this on purpose?

Are you sure you were talking to Jack or were you just reading my post #602 where I basically said the same thing? Lol. Glad you got it perfect. I do believe only Joe has Earned the right to see your skivey pics.

#630 6 months ago

richiewrench Did you have pilot holes in the top of your backbox for the topper, or did you just set the position and drill the screw into it?

Also, is your topper motor loud? Mine is rather loud.

#631 6 months ago

Should be four spotting holes up there.

Apparently they are loud.

Can't be louder than FT topper !

No pilot holes as instructions stated -- So we just drilled our own once I found the right position for my own point of view.

#635 6 months ago

I do notice that the topper is kind of loud -- Now -- you really dont hear it while playing the game -- but at the end when it winding down -- I do notice the topper is making like that grinding noise or gear noise

Anyone else notice this - Is there a fix or maybe a way to muffle it down.

I was thinking about taking off the cork and stuffing the bottle with insulation.......

#636 6 months ago

Thanks, so you have the same situation with the topper and the lack of spotting holes.

Going to move forward with drilling a set of pilot holes and investigating some way to silence the motor on the topper. As you mentioned its not noticeable for most gameplay, but on game start and ball drains when the volume drops it's extremely loud. Not sure what the solution is at the moment, be it new motor or reworking the cam...

So are the folks who’ve received their CE happy? Looks like mine won’t make it for Christmas. Hoping to see it before the new year.

All 200 machines were built at the same time. Mine was number 71 and it arrived 12/17 to the mid west KC MO.

Wow those games look amazing! Congratulations to all the CE owners. Just a fantastic looking game.

Tech support for the topper is coming out of NJ. So contact JJP there.

#642 6 months ago

I know this has been discussed a lot on Dialed In! But havent seen much discussion among CE buyers on POTC.

Couple questions:

Do you think JJP will release a newly themed/skinned version of POTC (like a Black Pearl Edition)?

If so, would it upset you if it was priced at LE levels but was limited to say 500 games? What if it was priced as a CE and included same topper with a run of 200?

I’m a capitalist to an extreme so I’m not pissed or worried about this possibility but it does intrigue me as an interesting business decision for JJP and curious to see what folks think.

Same topper? No way

Would you have been this sure on Dialed In!?

#645 6 months ago

I too am a capitalist at heart but with hesitation. Loyalty is everything when it comes to business and branding. I know that JJP has done this with hobbit and WOZ to some degree. Reskin the games with the hope of revitalizing the pin and capturing new business. This would make sense if it didnt cause a previous purchase to lose value, specifically to a CE. Do I think they will release a black pearl version? My gut tells me they will! Will I be happy about it NO! The black pearl theme was what the CE should be. CE should be the most sought after version and the most unique. What is unique about the gameplay, the audio, callouts in the CE version vs LE? In my opinion, what would make the CE completely different is if we had access to specific CE software upgrades. Diff. Modes, callouts etc. i know this will ruffle feathers but stern did it with some success with batman 66. There are specific elements of the superLE that a LE owner will never have access to. Maybe I am more sensitive to this bc this is my first CE purchase and just entered the hobby. JJp should worry less about reskins and more about getting the next theme on the line. I feel JJp makes significantly better pins than anyone but just need to refocus on the separation between LE and CE models.

My opinion on this is JJP is a business and company first and foremost. While I would not like (and they would not do) a second run of CE games the same as the original 200 who am I to tell JJP or buyers that wish to own a game what they should do or what you can't have. While a collectable at the end of the day its a toy to bring fun and joy so why would I have a say in who can share that. Now with that said.......IF any new version came out with that misplaced 3 disk spinner That would make me a sad camper. lol

#647 6 months ago

Am I the only person that hates the tiered sales model? You can spend $9000 on a game and not even get all of the features. No one wants to spend that much money and only get some of the features, so we end up upgrading to the higher cost models, the additional features rarely seeming to correspond to the additional cost. This strategy must work for the companies, but as a consumer I hate being told I need to pay an extra $1000 or $2000 (or more) for maybe a few hundred dollars worth of add ons.

While I do agree with your assessment I would dissagree that it applies to JJP? Yes, I to dislike say a Stern DP or SW that you need to pay a premium penalty to have the fun factor of ramps and specific mode shots but I do not see this in the JJP tiered model. ALL game versions offer All buyers the same shot map and value across the board. It is the buyers choice if they see a value in art exclusivity or a few add on toys but None subtract from the playability or capability. With JJP Pirates as an example I would consider all models equal in value and without compromise. Not a bash on Stern, just prefer the equal offering approach JJP has.

No you are not, I'm in that club too ! I like JJP approach of equal games for all, while offering cosmetic options. I went for a standard WOZ but ended up getting a 75th LE, wether it ends up being a limited edition or not doesn't bother me much, I just find the red ramps, feet and sides to be drop dead gorgeous, so totally worth the extra.

#650 6 months ago

I like all the options. Just like buying a new car. You get upgrade options at a cost. That's life. The LE at jjp is the sweet spot. Wish it was closer to $8500 price though. The premium and pro at stern is a crap shoot each release on which one to go with.
