Quoted from Axl:

They are more like mantis protectors. If you look at all the scoops and holes, they don’t have a sharp clear edge. I guess that will help with wear.

The two holes appear to be routed at quite an angle so I don't think that you can get a real Cliffy edge and topside protector in those two holes. The ones provided by JJP are certainly welcome in my pin! (Edit: Kudos to Eric for extending the rails right down to the front in the shooter lane, very cool!)

I will be looking to protect other edges and holes where needed, think WOZ. Last I spoke to Cliff, he had not been contacted by Team JJP so I am hopeful that one of us early production buyers are can work with him on this.

that was a huge truck in the cartwheel video, where are all the boxes being delivered!? Come on shipping companies!!!

#2653 1 year ago

No more screen animation at the beginning of each chapter?
it was a cool thing. I find the missing bad now...

But the movement of the ship is a good thing.

Regards.

I just noticed that the intro chapter video clips are missing as well What happened? Why are they gone? When the star map area is now hit to start a chapter the little canons representing each chapter at the top of the LCD screen trigger and then the mode starts with no chapter animation.

On another note the production game looks to play super smooth and fast!

I wonder if this is a setting perhaps? Can't imagine why they would remove all the video for chapters unless they are going to change some of them. Makes no sense.

#2657 1 year ago

Cool thing about the video they added was there are different videos for the various levels of damage.

#2658 1 year ago

Seeing that clip today just made my day.I'm getting the hobbit tomorrow, the wife is going away for the weekend and my football team is in the finals can life get any better. Go Hawks !

#2659 1 year ago

We were aborting chapter starts because the feed can insta drain if the ball is settled. Don't worry, we have a fix in software coming that we think will work well.

I hop We will not have to do wait too long to have the chapter introduction...

#2661 1 year ago

i have noticed on previous streams when the ball settles in the mode start hole on the right side of the up post it drains straight to the left outlane.
Maybe that is what they are trying to fix.

#2662 1 year ago

Anything new here on more units shipping or just the same Tumbleweeds?

#2663 1 year ago

How do you abort chapter starts?

Or is this a software thing? Hoping the chapters scenes come back!

Thanks Keith. That's good to hear that a software fix is in the works. The chapter intro clips are a must have in my opinion as they help tie the modes to the movies and help immerse the player in chapter modes.

News: I'm sure JJP's highest priorities are building and shipping units. "Pinball is hard" Everyone's day will come I'm sure. Hang in there.

Hey guys, I think you're reading too much into the chapter aborts. Sorry we didn't clarify earlier.

Like in most games, if there is a cut scene, multiball intro, bonus screen, etc, you can skip it by hitting both flipper buttons. We added that feature to the chapter cut scenes recently. They are absolutely still in the game! We just happen to do it a lot because we're impatient pinball players, so it looked like it happened nearly every time we started a chapter.

Thanks,

E

Cool - that’s what I was thinking.

We prefer to complain and argue about what we assume or didn’t pay attention to. Fire, shoot, aim.... bravo again To you and the dream team that put this work of art together.

#2669 1 year ago

On the high score pages I see a reference to Locker escapes. I'm assuming this is something in reference to Davey Jones Locker but haven't seen this in the stream videos before. Any ideas?

Obviously your wife doesn't have an account on Pinside

Quoted from jfh:

Stern usually produces LEs early in the production cycle.
I much prefer the JJP approach where the CEs are produced later in the cycle after all the little production changes/improvements are figured out.

Stern sent out a batch of IM pros before the LEs

I'm pretty sure it's the right outlane save.

#2673 1 year ago
Quoted from Outlanes:

Ah.... forgot about the save to the shooter lane. Didn’t realize it had a name and a score that is tracked.

Pretty cool

#2674 1 year ago

Is Davey Jones character coded in yet?

Couple streams ago he was there but they said he didn’t have any powers or code yet.

#2675 1 year ago
Quoted from Psw757:

If liars dice was done I'm sure they'd show it. The one at the brewery it wasnt finished yet

I've been talking like a pirate to my kids all day. My 5 year old comes up to me and says "the foul pet of Davy Jones!" What a great quote! Hope Davy is coded tonight!

#2677 1 year ago
Quoted from Outlanes:

It was not coded as of yesterday. I'm looking forward to this evening, I think I'll learn a lot on the rules from watching some of yall play.

#2678 1 year ago

I just want my pin. They can take their time coding

Yes, I realize that these are two different departments, just looking forward to getting my pin.

#2679 1 year ago

Davey Jones I believe is selectable in the game now but not sure what his scoring or powers are. Liars Dice may or may not apply to more than just Davey Jones, kind of got the impression it is a video mode of some kind.

I hear ya... I want my pin already, feels like I've been waiting years!

Does any buddy remember them talking about how cool the black pirate ship sails were going to be? I think they were going to add them to the mini playfeild but I am not sure. Does any buddy remember them talking about that?

Never said anything about sails on the mini Playfield and they would not fit anyway.

The walking about how cool the black sails were maybe they were talking about the CE topper.

Yes that was CE topper talk

#2685 1 year ago

In a stream Eric mentioned that he had been talking about raising the sails and everybody thought he meant physical sails, what he meant to my memory was the sails that you raise with the spinners. Correct me if I am wrong.
Anyhow, sails would not have fit on the ship.

#2686 1 year ago

Was there only one game in that truck?

#2687 1 year ago

I got one yesterday, it will be on location in NYC on Monday, probably in the Financial district, near the south street seaport. I'll play it on Saturday, but I'm hearing people like it more than the test games.

#2688 1 year ago
Quoted from Charliew65:

Yeah no shit!

That 53 foot trailer should have been full. One unboxing on pinside in 8 days, kind of crazy.

And this is bad how? My wifes always turning down the heater, telling me I can only have one pin on at a time. Talking about how we spend to much for electricity!!!

That’s funny.The spinners on ship are the sails

Maybe the spinners should have sail decals on them?

#2695 1 year ago
Quoted from Axl:

Or maybe as your hammering away on the spinners there should be some video of sails or pirate flags being hoisted like in at worlds end movie where they all hoist their colors.

#2696 1 year ago

Can we have both?

One pin at a time I really feel for you mate but at least she let's you have a pin my missus is is way too nice and let's me indulge in my pinball passion but after Pirates all spare cash is going to save up for a holiday to the USA which isn't such a bad thing.

#2698 1 year ago

I have been put on lock down too after pirates. She said she wants to go the Grand Canyon, And i am like why do you want to go see a big hole in the ground!
Yep, Back in the dog house! lol

How long would your visit last to US? Suggest 8 weeks if you can swing it, and realize it will cost you a fortune ($20k+ for you and spouse) if done right. NYC for 1 week, DC for 1 week, Florida for 2 weeks (1 in Orlando), California for 2 weeks and whatever spots interest you most for 2 weeks.

#2700 1 year ago

The flyer mentions the game has "3 RGB edge lit spinners". Did these make it to production? If so, how do they work?
