C’mon now, changed two? That’s being a bit generous. I’m not trying to be mean, but they dropped features from the game, not “changed features”. Going from a 3 disc spinner full of variables and leds down to 1 plain spinner is a total downgrade. I’m a huge JJP fan and owner, but that was a disaster. We should at least be able to say that out loud.

#360 1 year ago
Quoted from JoinTheCirqus:

Going from a 3 disc spinner full of variables and leds down to 1 plain spinner is a total downgrade.

The 3 disc is now doing the variables on the screen. And the three ring spinner replaced with a single spinner. Which throws the ball quite nicely. Something the three didn't do a good job of.

You haven't lost anything.

See now, that’s not true. Why the denial? The 3 ring spinner on the playfield is easier for the player to see while they’re playing, that’s a fact. On the screen is better than nothing I guess. How about the loss of the chest as well? Downgrades.

#362 1 year ago

I didn't deny anything.

Quoted from JoinTheCirqus:

You didn't say anything about seeing it until now. Three feet away from the playing position looking at the playfield, or watching the screen. Fact or not, doesn't seem like a lot of difference to me. You have ball(s) running around and yet you have time to concentrate on the 3 rings or LCD, what they are doing ? I'd think you'd be going for your next shot. If you have time to look down and read, you have time to look up and read.

Quoted from JoinTheCirqus:

How about the loss of the chest as well?

You are of course correct. The lid is now fixed open. What a great tragedy. First thing I think of when I played it. Looking back there. Crap, is that lid up or down ? That could greatly alter whether I win a game or not. Damn. Heck, I might not even match now.

LTG : )

#363 1 year ago

LTG, you are one of the good guys.

But reading your last two comments makes me wonder whether you had a few beers tonight.

#364 1 year ago

I think the virtual disks look great and work better for spectators it still has more features than you can poke a stick at

#365 1 year ago

No beer. After 12 plus hours of working my arcade and tech support, I do get in a jollier mood. Anything worth doing is worth having some fun.

Are you dropping 10K-12K on one of these machines?

Folks spending that much cash on a pinball machine tend to be somewhat picky.

No, and yes.

When you consider the amount of time I put in doing tech support, I'll have way more than that in the game.

No. I don't do good with a boss. I only did that once. Though I did get to run a foreman up a forklift and left him up there.

This morning I already spent an hour on the phone with a person having an LED board issue on a WOZ. Person was the problem, not the LED board. About 30 minutes into one of these you start going cross eyed and lose a lot of IQ points. You couldn't pay me for this crap. There ain't enough money out there.

The companies I work for I tell them. Let me know what you want done. Consider it done. Leave me alone.

I'm just doing what I've always done. Trying to make my little corner of pinball a little bit better and enable people to enjoy their games more.

Well ok you’re all fired up now and sarcastic. I know you’re a big JJP fan, so Am I. So we agree On something! You say it doesn’t seem like a big difference. I say it is. You can’t win this argument, nor can I. We disagree. But I will say that I’d be shocked if there weren’t many more that look at this through my point of view. Enough to not buy the game? Maybe yes, maybe no.

First you said it as a statement now you're saying it as a question if you do know of any issues let me know because I'm spending a lot of money on one of these things. I am hopefully going to the states next year so maybe I should look you up and we could go play some pinball.

The mod looks nice, but with it added would you still clearly see the ball whirlpool down the hole? That to me is the coolest thing about making that shot.

Sorry, not to be personal, but JJP does not pay you for providing tech support to their customers?

Good observation and comment. Yes it was designed and elevated so the ramp hole feature is not obstructed. Also adjustable so you could raise it higher if you prefer. Plus the process was done in a through transplant design to view and carry the games lighting effects.

Quoted from tacshose:

No. That was my decision, not Jack's. Or Rick's. Or anybody else I may help in the future.

I knew from the previous 17 years at that time when Jack hired me, helping people on line, there isn't enough money available to do that. After an hour explaining why you can't put 10 balls in a 5 ball game or you can't cut circuit boards in half. You haven't lived until you answer that phone. You couldn't pay me to do that. I knew what I would be getting myself into back then and what I do hasn't changed. Let me know what you want done. Consider it done.

All I've ever wanted was to make my little corner of pinball a little bit better.

LTG : )

#384 1 year ago

Wait one minute. I cant cut a circuit board in half?

#385 1 year ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

Wait one minute. I cant cut a circuit board in half?

You can. Just not a great idea.

Charlie of Spooky Pinball asked me about that one. He asked me, "They do that", "Why?"

I told him, "You don't want to know". I never ask how we got to that point. I don't want to know why or what their thinking was. I just try to get their game going again as fast as possible.

LTG : )
Disclaimer : Tech support. It's not a job. It's an adventure.

i dont know, playfield populated with the new disk ? to see how it is well or not integrated color wise ?
if there is some other changes, like an apron not as bright as on the CE LE ?

They covered every one of these changes in their weekly blog videos. And yes all changes are the same for all models as #Kingpingames pointed out.

#390 1 year ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

So they showed pictures of the side rails and legs totally covered in barnacles like they said they were going to do, and the backing behind the ship in a bottle topper. ( which I think should be stormy Seas at night with lightning clouds)

Don’t know I was simply answering his question about apron art and Playfield changes to the CE. I do like your ideas on the rails though and hope they come up with something interesting.

It wasn't my idea on the side rails pretty sure that's what Zach said back alley creations were going to do, my idea was to put an octopus and treasure amongst the barnacles.

Digging through this thread and having trouble finding links to the blog and stuff.

I’ve seen a lot of videos from January and March about this table and was going to place an order. But reading the last several pages I’m reading things have changed like the spinner functionality and other stuff and I’m having trouble finding up to date information and gameplay footage to see if it’s something I still want.

Haven’t paid this much for an Arcade/Pinball since Attack from Mars CE.

Just want to make sure I know what I’m actually getting so I’m not surprised or disappointed.

Please no flames or judgement. Just looking for current info.
