    Quoted from LTG:

    I don't see jjp remaking it. New place isn't set up for wide bodies, and was their most difficult game to manufacture. Tech support was up a bit, maybe because of some manufacturing issues like too tight a harness under the black pearl. No where near the WOZ light board tech issues, or USB updates when ever a new up date came out. People often messed that up. WiFi updating really helped with that.
    Now I did bash the Big Lebowski when it was coming out in one of my seminars at Expo. Someone asked what I thought of it and I said I thought it sucked.
    I wasn't referring to title or game play. I was referring to when they had two games at Expo and two games at TPF, the first time. Both games were dead in the water after a half hour for the duration of the show.
    My comment was that I thought a game that cost $10K ( at that time ) and didn't last a half hour, sucked. Heaven help anyone that bought one then.

    Any thoughts on JJP making The Matrix?

    Only thing I'm hoping for is a PTCR and a Stern Pinball Alley sign.

    As far as the Matrix. jjp could ( if they don't take shortcuts ) knock it out of the park. They'd be the best company to do it justice.

    And as always, I wish everyone at some point could get their favorite idea produced.

    I know EJ was recently released but is there an expectation for another JJP game to be announced or released again this year? Or are they normally on a one per year cycle?

    I wouldn’t mind diversifying my collection by adding another JJP. Was considering Godfather but would only do so if I know the code will be finished.

    Also, in terms of next JJP game are the strongest rumors either the Matrix or a Harry Potter without full assets? Not sure how well HP would do without the full integration of all their movies.

    Jurassic Park did just fine

    #1007 47 hours ago

    Matrix and HP next not sure in what order, probably summer for announcement of one of those to give EJ a chance to build word of mouth momentum. last I heard was HP would be based on the films and not generic hogwarts which would be great , think Eric Meunier on HP and Mark Seiden on Matrix for his first game as designer

    #1008 47 hours ago

    I'd pivot from Stern for a JJP game if it was Harry Potter. I'm sure the game would be a magical experience

    #1009 47 hours ago

    When HP comes I hope they base it more on first few films, moving staircases, quidditch etc rather than the last films which are more serious/darker

    Quoted from ZombiePartie:

    I’m running the movie code on my JP. I came upon one on location that didn’t have the code and can’t imagine ever reverting back to a stock code as to me it greatly enhances the gameplay and integration.

    Im not discounting the ability to create a great game without full assets but if it were say, HP without the main characters and cast then I think that will go a long way in capturing market, otherwise it would have to create a machine that would do well regardless of desired theme (ala Godzilla).

    #1011 47 hours ago

    Regardless of the assets the Harry Potter game will be the best selling JJP ever. I wouldn't be surprised at a price rise either... hopefully not!

    I actually don't think it's a necessity to have the movie assets, that would be great, but the Hogwarts Legacy video game outsold Call of Duty with 22 million copies, people just want to be in that world.

    A pinball machine where you play a new student, choose your Hogwarts house like you choose your family in Godfather (or even do a quick 3 question multiple choice quiz before starting the game to be "sorted") and progress though classes, finding secret passages, start a quidditch game etc. I believe would be just as successful as a Harry Potter movie pin.

    Not to get too dreamy, but it would be an amazing opportunity to launch JJP's version of Insider Connected so you can take your Hogwarts house and progress in classes to other machines! I don't think there's any denying it's where pinball is headed. People seem to want deep rule sets and progression that carries over.

    I agree, HP doesn’t need movie assets. Games like BTTF, or The Big Lebowski absolutely need assets

    I think Harry Potter is coming after whatever they reveal next. Not a solid lead but just what I could glean from comments people who seem to know have made. So probably very late 2024, early 2025. Meunier and co. on Harry Potter is a must. They need to bring that Godfather level mentality on ball paths and code depth.

    If I was JJP and IF it's ready I'd actually get HP out as soon as I could because I'm afraid that people are holding off and waiting for what they know is coming. That money stays tied up with each release that isn't Harry Potter.

    #1014 46 hours ago

    Assuming Eric is on HP and assuming POTC and GF codes don’t get updated, would we think there may be a sales impact knowing that the game at release may not have or ever get a final wizard? That (plus the current pricing but I don’t want to make this a pricing discussion) would make me hesitant to purchase NIB and instead wait a while until after release to consider.

    Elton John release was already back in October 2023.
    https://www.pinballnews.com/site/2023/10/19/elton-john-pinball-revealed/

    So yes, we can expect a new game reveal for Chicago Expo at the latest. Late summer would be nice though.

    EJ CE games are just now being built/shipped, so I don't expect to see a new game at TPF.

    Personally this has held me back from swinging for a JJP. For the price of machines, I would expect all code to be polished/modes in/finished.

    No rumor love for Top Gun???

    #1020 44 hours ago

    Eric's Top Gun.

    Standard width. Wide open. Faster than greased lightening. Flippers so strong they'll dent the back wall of the playfield. Get ready for the ride of your life.

    Disclaimer. I have no idea. Just thought it would be cool.

    Games where Joe Katz is the lead on (Wonka, Toy Story, and now Elton John) are all complete and fairly well polished.

    Pirates, GNR, and Godfather are all either not complete (Pirates and Godfather are missing final wizard modes) or left unpolished (GNR owners waiting for score balancing) for years on end. Why?

    Keith is currently working on GNR score balancing ... he has stated in the beta group last week. Maybe even on Patience pun intended.

    and send the game to the single player only realm for major tournament play unless they allow repicks.

    Not here. You have to go to the Stern thread for that request.

    I heard GnR score balancing is in the works and Jack personally told me that POTC will get done but to timing, he could not say.

    Is it Keefer or Ted Estes finishing code for GnR?I think Ted is batting clean up while Keith is working on a Jacked In for JJP.

    It was Keith that said that he was working on score balancing. Sometimes they team up to concur stuff, so it might not be just him.

    I’m just glad someone at JJP is working on it!GnR is an awesome game that deserves the best code possible.Its been a mistake to let this title just depreciate the way it has.I still have faith that they’ll do it justice.New flippers with new code is dyn-o- mite!!
