    Quoted from Eskaybee:

    Stern thrives on their games being easy to maintain for pinball. But for a couple thousand more dollars we can buy a JJP game and be locked into doing maintenance + tweaking every other nigh.

    You’ve hit the nail on the head with JJP games, they are a maintence nightmare that won’t go away. And as far as warranty service goes, good luck trying to get an answer on a ticket.

    JJP games DO take much longer to dial in, but we have a WoZ on route (that was updated to the 2.0 lighting) that is not a maintenance nightmare at all and is one of the best earners on the route - even after almost 5 years. I usually try to spend a few weeks bulletproofing them before they go out and it pays off on the route.
