Ball very often gets stuck here when the metal clamp comes down and holds it. Anyone else experience this?

Looks like your diverter is too low? Does it work by moving up and down through the ramp?

Is the kind of round plastic piece that secures it still there ? Usually crank that tight and that does it.

If you need the manual you can download it from jerseyjackpinball.com under Support under Downloads under Pirates
LTG : )

yeah, it just starts working itself out, I've adjusted it once b4. guess I'll just have to do that every so often. thanks LTG.

Maybe a dab of hot glue, finger nail polish, or paint, on the threads at the bottom, to stop it from unscrewing ?

So I have to ask existing owners of the LE, any QC issues, how is it playing for you? I have cash in and waiting for my first NIB JJP here. I have yet to find one in the wild to play, so I’m curious to get real feedback for those that have one in their collection. TIA.

Love ours no major issues. Feel free to PM me for a visit. Never mind sharing some game time in the arcade. Don’t imagine your more then 20 minutes from me.

I have NOT had that problem. Your diverter is lowering too LOW. Check to see where it can be adjusted so it does not go that low.

That beats mine. My top score has been like 9.5M, happened early before I knew what I was trying for. Since then have lost many jackpots at 16-22M, never that big though. Local here put up 100M with one song netting 76M

Funny this is that I never had a chance to cash out. I had multi-ball going almost the entire time, just the last 30 seconds or so was single ball. Which was a problem because I still needed like 600 switch hits to light the scoop. Next time I may cradle a ball and drain the rest to cash the huge ones in.

It just baffles me why the designer intended for the scoring to be so lopsided to playing the songs. When I get to an album mode or Slash's solo I just time them out to get back to the songs, no point to risk draining for a measly 500k-1mil reward when you have these insane song scores. With the code being at 1.08, I doubt this changes.

You can build the album mode value just like you build song value. You can choose to not play the album mode when it is lit by holding the action button. If you just start the album mode right away the value is going to be pretty low generally. I do agree that Slash Solo and Tour Multiball need to be more valuable.

Another thing, never play Slash solo without the Guitar Pick and Slash's Hat patches.

Thanks for letting me know, I had no clue I could do that.

Yup that seems to be the problem. LTG Any advise on how to adjust the diverter so when it's down, it doesn't stop the ball?

I am ok with the song jackpot scoring. In order to build up a huge song jackpot, it takes a LOT of work before you even start the song. You need to not only max out the 4 booster multiballs, you need to get lots of jackpots during them. You also need to lock 6 balls. Then you need to execute the song properly by quickly progressing though each stage of the song mode. The huge ones are rare and don't grow on trees. It takes skill for sure, but the stars must also align. More realistically you are going to get 1-3M on a song jackpot during an average game.

I'm fine with the scoring on the songs if the scoring in the album modes is equally matched somewhat. A lot of that building up the songs for big scores is multiball to where the album modes is single ball play with less scoring potential currently. If I play enough song time to enter an album mode, at least give me what a decent song jackpot is to make it worth my while. I like that the album modes are single ball play because it gives you a break from getting multiball fatigue.

quick rule question:

What do the gnr circle inserts do? Seems like they are also sometimes lit during modes? I’ve had the game say “album sales increased” but not really sure what that means...

The GNR logo inserts spell “Guns N Roses” and that lights mystery.

Just got my LE today. This is what I get when I start it up. Trough error. Anyone know why?

- 6 balls are in there
- trough coil fires on testing
- auto plunger fires on testing
- underneath the wires look fine to me

Do you have 7 balls in there? The jam switch should not be activated.

Nope. 6 balls.

I just took them out. Still get same error message with all switch lights green.

When you put the balls in one at a time during that test when does the jam switch activate?

I fixed it!

It was a loose connector at the IO Board behind the monitor. I figured it out from searching pinside and people had the same issue with their POTC. THANKS PINSIDE!!!

Doesnt the game give you a chance to cash out automatically at the end of a song if you're in single ball play?? Its short, but the scoop should flash blue for the last few seconds of any song if only 1 ball remains.

I don’t make it to the end. November Rain is like 9 minutes.

Wait, what??? I had no idea. Hold the action button when?? And how do you build album value?

When you have an album mode qualified the value of it is displayed in the mini LCD. Lower the number the lower the value. Hold the action button to toggle between enabling and disabling the album mode. Play more songs from the same album to increase the value. More risk / reward!

Well I feel like an odiot now. I just assumed when the album mode was qualified, that was it. You had to play it on next scoop hit. So, hitting the action button will cancel it huh? Nice!

FlipNOut. Zach has been great. I paid up front shortly after game reveal.

This game is outstanding and a legit adrenaline rush when a song is playing.

1 more time.

You were over a week. I would think you should get one by April.

Those of you who have upped your flipper strength- what did you land on?

Left orbit- does it always feed the right flipper? And does it do so from the ball guide or does the upper right flipper guide the ball?

For me both orbits feed the flippers when the shots are clean. Stock flipper settings.

Could you share a pic of your upper right flipper alignment?

#3043 8 days ago

Anyone have a bug in tour mb where the lit right orbit registers multiple jackpots and sometimes also a super?

#3044 8 days ago

Adjusted the top right flipper a bit and the left orbit feeds the right flipper now, didn’t realize the orbit uses the top right flipper to make it to the right flipper, the ball guide alone will throw it at the right sling

#3045 8 days ago

Hitting the right orbit on my game loops around and usually returns back to the RIGHT lower flipper on my game. Is that the same for everyone else?

I ordered (and pay the deposit) the 5th of October... Still no ETA

No, I fact I had to add just mine because it wasn’t even making the left flipper (was hitting the left sling)

#3048 7 days ago
Quoted from Leo13:

Sorry to hear that. I think the only difference might be that I paid in full right away instead of a deposit. I guess I figured I’d somehow get my game that much sooner, tho I could also see a distributor choosing to ship mine last because money was already in hand. I’m glad it worked out.

Quoted from nicoy3k:

Thanks. I’ll try to adjust mine tonight.

What’s the best way to adjust the orbit? I’m dumb when it comes to this stuff.
