Quoted from VisitorQ:

Hey guys... If anyone needs to remove the CE topper for any reason, I have official directions from JJP if you need them.
Just wanted to put that out there.

I did it in my unboxing video
Pretty easy stuff as long as you can get access to the inside of the backbox... ull see I needed to not put the legs on to get access to the backbox lol

Quoted from Blakester:

Mine hasn't arrived. Paid in full in Sept. Reached out to distro and it supposedly shipped today

WOW! I'm shocked you are still waiting but that's good that it shipped!

#3053 82 days ago
Quoted from c818919taylor:

going to be parts that must be returned?

They will want the old parts back. They will be “fixing” the returned parts and the sending them out in “better than new” condition to others down the line to make then good. No doubt JJP will pay for shipping etc.
This makes good business sense IMHO. Everyone gets perfect parts and JJP doesn’t have to make as many replacement parts, just re-do the powder coating on the returned parts.

I have to say, I really like the animated bad guys.

I much prefer the static bad guy photos. I like that they have remaining hits and score value info with them too.

As do I.

I like the campiness of Godfather.

I've noticed the ball save is much shorter now when stacking a bunch of multiballs together.

#3059 80 days ago

Must only be in the Beta group.

GF is so underrated.

Same for BOND.

My two favorite games right now.

Yes, I couldn’t agree more! My favorite games as well and so underrated! It’s a damn shame!

#3062 80 days ago

If I put a piece of foam right there to stop the ball from bouncing back out, will that stop the game from recognizing the ball is there?

#3063 78 days ago

still loving this game well beyond honeymooning period. its a keeper. with that being said…JJP guys…for those of us who LOVE GF and been singing your praises…for Xmas can we please get Kiss the Ring!? its only time of year when you can spend a week getting deep into game. pretty please even if its not perfect yet!?

#3064 77 days ago

Quick question...just picked up a GF LE and I noticed that the right side loop ramp has a threaded "leg" going through the backer panel....mine doesn't have a nut on the back....is it supposed to have a nut on the back to hold it in position? It looks like the gap is too large between that stainless and the other one under it, so I am thinking I need to put a nut there to hold it lower....I think the ball would flow better on that ramp too....can anyone tell me if there's has a nut or take a quick pic of it for me?

The good news is yes. The bad news it will be Xmas 2027. Luckily I’ll still have it by then as the game is def. a keeper.

But yeah, their coding department should be super embarrassed across the board. It’s truly been downhill since the last big Wonka update.

GFLE has a washer and a neoprene locking nut from JJP.

Thanks! Found a lock washer that fit and lowered the ramp and locked it down! It flows MUCH better now!!

#3068 77 days ago

I blew mine up yesterday. I ended a mode with a 3,7000,000 point cash-out on my 2nd ball. When that ball drained i stopped and took a picture. As soon as I started playing the third ball I won a free ball and the machine rebooted. I was bummed. I hope that JJP fixes the code soon. Luckily I took a picture before launching ball 3 because there is no record of my score since it rebooted.

A big shout out to LTG for going above and beyond. I was able to end a long and frustrating day with a couple of games.
It was totally worth it.
Thank You Sir

Are you on the beta group? They just updated the beta but the issues that were supposed to be fixed are still present (broken super skill shots for example). Either way export your logs after the game crash and send to JJP.

Did you grab the log? Seems like a mathematical capture calculation in the code.

Certainly wouldnt think a growing small company would leave code incomplete. That would certainly be the opposite of intrinsic value in a company

#3072 76 days ago

Another quick question....Picked my GF up and it's running code 1.04. I saw on the FAQ's that I can't go from that to 1.10 so I have to do the 1.10 complete update. I am having trouble opening the .iso file on my mac so I can load the info on my USB drive. Is there anywhere to get the other update versions so I can just step it up to 1.10?

Have a PC that you can use Rufus on?

#3074 76 days ago

I hope GF gets the Wonka treatment regarding code updates. JJP did a fantastic job with the last major Wonka code update. Wonka is packed with movie assets and callouts.

Do you guys think this is a possibility for GF?

Quoted from Laithan:

I have a pc too but I'm not familiar with rufus...

#3076 76 days ago

We all do. At least we know that there is still new code in beta right now. Who knows how many more they have planned for this game but as long as there are currents betas they aren't calling it quits.

#3078 76 days ago

yeah, I was following the mac instructions and all was well until it said open the .iso file and I couldn't do that, so I was dead in the water....I'll try my PC tomorrow and see if it works with that one....

Eric Meunier stated on Flip N Out's GF stream that the code was basically done and that only some misc polish was to come.

Given this, I wouldn't get your hopes up too much.

Radio silence about kiss the ring. Hopefully it's not a POTC situation.

#3082 76 days ago

Anyone know if there is an unused 5v connector or pinout (5v and ground)? This customer requested a Bloody TV for his Godfather and tapped into the 12v on the coin door and stepped it down to 5v. I'd like to find a direct connection to 5v, if available.

I thought Kiss the Ring was already in the game but the game has a bug that prevents you from starting it?

How do you get a log from the pin to send to JJP?

#3086 75 days ago

Got it updated! Used my PC and the instructions and had to buy a new USB stick....updated to 1.10 now! Thanks for the help!

#3087 75 days ago

I don't think my Wifi dongle is working....When I was doing the update on software, I used the USB drive closest to the coin door. That ones green light was on...the other USB drive light is not on...I also tried to go into Network settings and when I hit enter in the menu, nothing happened. Are both your lights green under both USB drives on your board?

#3088 75 days ago
Quoted from VisitorQ:

They also said the whole thing was buggy and they had to completely redo it. Nothing since a month or two ago when they said it’ll be in within a week.

#3089 75 days ago

I’m hoping it’s worth getting to KTR and it’s a fun wizard mode. Has JJP said anything about how the Wizard mode is going to play?

Could be another issue but one is that you have to read and scroll all the way to the bottom and accept the terms before it will work.

Not that I am aware of.

That was it...I accepted the terms and it can see wifi now....that's weird that you have to do that. Only issue now is that there is no back slash available for my password. Oh well!

Wonder what the hold up is?

#3094 75 days ago

After updating my machine to 1.10, my locks aren't working every time...the lock inserts are lit on the left orbit and the spinner lane, but when I hit the shots, the ball goes into the bad guy disc instead of in the lock....anyone have this happen? I'll check the switches tomorrow, but thought I'd check and see if they changed how the lock works in the new code. I tested the lock diverter/gate thing and it works fine. I did lock one ball eventually, but more shots to the lock lanes went into the bad guy again....weird....

Noticed this last night, although not for the first round of locks/ Multiballs, those seemed to behave the same(?) It was the subsequent lead ups to MB via orbits that I noticed the lock light seemed to be illuminated different at times. There appears to be some required shots before the lock lights are full-on and ball lock engages. I'm curiously suspicious that this is a code modification to make it more challenging to achieve MB. Or, possibly, not.
Thanks for the observation @conester. I was having a "That seems different" moment and this confirms it!
Gonna play later tonight - West Coast time. Will check back here to see any developments or insights.

Played mine again and again last night. And I still like it. People offloading this pin for whatever reason is their decision. Market wise, It is clearly not a good time to sell any pin right now. ...And whiIe I do not believe this is the next POTC, I do think it may have a Renaissance one day.

I actually had a mechanical issue with the lock wall mech. For some reason, it didn't want to go down even though the coil was actuating...but if I put just a little pressure on the wall, it went down every time. I worked with Jersey Jack support to try a bunch of things, but in the end, I just added a small piece of foam under the mech where the wall shaft rests and it was enough to help it actuate every time now. Go figure, but it works 100% now, so I'm good!

#3100 74 days ago
Quoted from insight75:

wow seems low even for now.. I'd sit on it but then again it could be tough times (hope not). Just under 13k for a used CE. I am glad that I don't ever plan on selling mine. Every pin I sold in the past, I miss now.

I also agree that the full recognition/appreciation for Godfather has yet to come. It probably does lousy on location due to the excessive time needed to learn the game. I've always felt it was more of a HUO game. I'd also argue that unfinished code is a red flag and really earning JJP a sour reputation.
