I was lucky enough to get myself an le. I LOVE this game. BUT, I don’t know about everyone else but it took a lot of tweaking to get it playing solid. Mine does have playfield issues and i did order th replacement at a cost of 550+shipping, which is a total joke - what’s the point of a warranty? Anyway, not to get off topic,

Realistically, i think if the demand is there and jjp feels they can make $, they will remake it at some point, and unless something changes will still have pf issues....but it may be a different art package as JD is no longer part of the franchise.

I would agree with the map comment, I think every game will have this issue.

Here is a good preflight example I helped a friend with 2 weeks ago on a nib se. First they sent improper legs lol.. two where shorter than the other 2.

Anyway, immediately removed the pearl and the subway. trimmed the t nut and reinstalled, then.

Installed Cliffy’s on the map hole Vuk, depths, and rollover switches.
Installed neoprene washers on slings.
Had to adjust switches in about 5 different areas.
Adjusted the light fuse magnet coil armature for the door on the black pearl
Had to adjust the armature on the trunk ball release.
Had to touch up chipped areas on the playfield - brand new game - blew my mind.

So to summarize I don’t think every nib game would need this extent of adjustment / preventative maintenance but this one did, and basically so did my le.

After setting up 3 different pirates myself, I could see the quality control was just not there on this game. Which leads me to believe the costs where getting too high potentially.
