Thanks for creating this!

Don't trigger flippers when selecting character before game start.

Seriously, am I the only one that cares about this one?

Quoted from harryhoudini:

Nope, I hear you and also thought it was weird. I think the reason for this is that you can plunge the ball without confirming a character selection so the flippers are active for that. But I suppose maybe the shooter lane switch could just be used to detect when the ball leaves (like TOM) and activate them then.
There, I numbered it for you.


Actually, as CRAZY as it sounds, it makes the game feel cheap to me if you can believe it because it’s 100% unnecessary for the flippers to trigger when a silver ball isn’t in play...

Sorry to ask again, how do you pull up all the character abilities again?

So I’ll keep playing, but I’m PRETTY SURE I have never SDTM from Chapter Select area yet.

I have done zero.

I have done zero as well. I can keep the ball on the ship just fine, but STRUGGLE to load the cannon.

Quoted from harryhoudini:

I've been attempting to get all the balls up there so I don't have to try and worry about the others.

Haha.. that would be impressive. My gf managed to get 2 up there and they both instantly cams down the ramp.

I have yet to get 2 up there...

Well...I KNOW my flippers are "perfect" on the BP. Trust me, it was off the playfield long enough and I spent enough time on it.

So...I just think I'm not very good at it .. haha

Quoted from gumnut01:

I’ve been trying to figure out why my wife (her again!) finds AFM, WCS and to a lesser extent TSPP more approachable than pirates. She says she does not really like the display.
I love it. But just trying to work out besides the obvious differences what she does not like about it.
It just struck me. Every DMD game I own rewards the player when they shoot a ramp, orbit or any toy with an animation.
That does not happen for most shots in pirates. I know it shows for chest locks, map, tortuga and boarding of the Pearl. But what about the maelstrom, port royal, or combos etc. I know the display is a bit like a dashboard but maybe it can reward people for hitting that left ramp or entering the Devil’s Triangle. I don’t know if it would work, maybe it would get too repetitive. And definitely not for when a Multiball is happening (but even DMD pins limit their display during multiballs). Maybe extend the way that boarding the Pearl is overlaid to the other shots. I mean just overlay a whirlpool animation for when the maelstrom is hit. Or have an overlaid animation of a row boat coming into port for Port Royal.
It may be too much. Just an idea.

It's probably just too much and it feels intimidating. I have a friend that has tried Pirates a few times and he's just kinda meh about it...but he LOVES AFM. I think it's everything. He loves the comedy, the theme, the approach-ability, the simplicity, the everything.

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Yeah, would be nice. Speaking of chapter complete a chapter complete callout / fanfare effect would be great to have in the game.

Right? You complete a chapter and you almost wouldn’t know without looking at the screen.

I second the coin door saves. That’s fantastic!

This would be perfect in a scenario where you have a sling escape for example.

Quoted from PtownPin:

My guess (and hope) is that they introduce a "special edition" POTC at some point...they'll probably ask $12k+ for it, and it would probably sell. Its 10x the game WOZ is and they sold a YBR version for crazy money even with eliminating the Monkey mech.

10x? I FREAKING LOVE WOZ and hoping it can be my 4th machine some day!

Quoted from harryhoudini:

Personally, I think POTC and WOZ are tied for best JJP. WOZ is beautiful. POTC is immersive and deep. Both are extremely unique. I have both and will keep both.

WOZ is absolutely beautiful to look at!

TNPLH Sephia mode - Wow!
