Willy Wonka is going to be revealed on Friday USA time . Buffalo pinball has said to be streaming it , can you get a link before they start streaming or do you have to wait until they are streaming . What do you search on Twitch to find it , does anyone know the time it's going to happen . Thanks for any info . This is One reveal I don't want to miss !!!

#10 72 days ago
Quoted from PinDoctor82:

Thanks for making this thread guys...I'll be tuning in on Friday anxiously and now I don't feel as disappointed that I can't be there myself.

If we can't be there it's the next best thing

Finally go time

#122 67 days ago

A setup tool a spanner ?

#125 67 days ago

So that's what Pat looks like

#153 67 days ago

Would have liked to see them show the whole machine cabinet playfield before they started playing

#168 67 days ago

Is it just me with the skull picture

#176 67 days ago

Refreshed all good

#286 67 days ago

Can't see , does it have drop targets

#313 67 days ago
Quoted from Guinnesstime:

So I’ve watched an hour of the stream, and here’s the issue:
It’s Willy Wonka, but it SOUNDS like I’m playing Wizard Of Oz. Where’s the music?
W. T. F.

That's what I was thinking

#413 67 days ago

The modes don't really stand out
The Hobbit beats on that score so far

#484 67 days ago

Seems like no action button is that a good or bad thing

#496 67 days ago
Quoted from Maide:

I generally don't like these (I'd rather the button be on the side where the flipper buttons are,) so I'm quite fine without that on this one.

That's the challenge of having the button in the middle . The Hobbit often teases me with free points but it's a big risk to go for them especially during multiball I've lost many a ball being greedy

#614 67 days ago

My first impressions of watching the stream all day is that it looks really fun machine with lots of cool challenging shots . The rules and modes don't seem as complicated as some jjp pins which would be good for newer players but still deep enough for experienced players . Taking your picture for Wonka vision was a nice touch . I would have liked to see and hear more from the film clips they seem to play in the background and not have much effect in the overall experience , I would like to hear the characters speaking more and also more clips like Charlie finding the winning ticket Charlie in the classroom and the candy shop ect . I suppose these might be in The Wizard modes but they are hard to get to and I wouldn't want the other one's to get repetitive in general game play . I guess we were spoilt with the movie integration with The Hobbit and now I expect every pin to live up to that level . Would have also liked to have seen the Oompa Loompas more and heard their song . These are just programming things and could possibly change with code updates the Playfield design looks excellent .
Overall great job and any day and new pinball is revealed is a good day .

#621 67 days ago
Quoted from MikeS:

Here a pic of one of the locations I frequent often. You can absolutely see the side art on games and it is something the general public sees. Why wouldn't you want your game to look as appealing as possible, especially since it doesn't cost them any extra money? It's just dumb! With how competitive the pinball market is why handicap your games with bland art.[quoted image]

No harm in making them look as good as you can especially when it's a design thing and not a money thing

#638 67 days ago
Quoted from rai:

The presentation was horrible on the live stream.

I didn't think the Stream was horrible I really enjoyed it and would like to give a big thank you to Kevin and buffalo pinball for giving their time for free to give us something to watch

#657 67 days ago
Quoted from rai:

Was horrible the stream was blacking out and pausing. Maybe that's not Kevin's fault but it was blacking out. Plus the initial 20 minutes was a snooze and the big teaser video was too short. Should have been more to it. Then watching a mob of people try to keep the ball in play. I'd rather see a clean stream of the game even a produced gameplay with some close up shots of the ramps and whanot. I'm sure we will see that later but the initial impression for me was not that great. There is so much on Wonka that from the presentation I was only seeing the bottom 20% like the Wonka MB and the Wonka bars.

Mate , straight down the middle had the close ups of all the shots and the interview with Pat lawlor well produced. Buffalo did the live reveal you have to have an intro and cos it's live yes it can pause and blackout and what blaming people for draining the ball that's real life , come on . Ridiculous

#669 67 days ago
Quoted from Riffbear:

Just my 2 cents.. The original buckskin (yellowish) color around Willy Wonka to me looks too much like car undercoat paint... No pop to it..
I just did a quick mock up of blue around him.
I think it suites it better?[quoted image]

I was looking at that and thought the yellowish looked a bit meh I don't mind the blue you did also I thought there's a bit of empty space around him and could look good with the factory in the background .

#706 67 days ago
Quoted from Bowlingpin:

Also, couldn’t they have used sound clips of atleast Gene wilder saying “Jackpot” multiple times instead of the voice actor

I'm sure they would have liked to but unfortunately he has passed away

#725 67 days ago

When I first started this thread I just wanted to know where to see it and what time it started . I would have never guessed it would have taken up a life of its own . I did a bit of checking and since the reveal this thread has had 650 + posts the next closest has had 188 + . Making it the number one Wonka reveal thread . Was all set to look at another thread to get all the information on the reveal but as I started this one I felt obliged to check on it and I was blown away the posts came in 10-15 -20 at a time and it was impossible to keep up with . It has nothing to do with me but all you guys posting . There have been some great posts and some poor posts but that's what makes pinside great , general back and forth discussion , it would be boring if everyone had the same opinion . So I would like to thank everybody who has posted and made this such an entertaining thread to read .

#730 67 days ago
Quoted from imharrow:

Willy Wonka : I had to test you, Charlie! And you passed the test! You've won!
Grandpa Joe : Won what?
Willy Wonka : The Jackpot, My dear sir! The grand and glorious jackpot!

Fairpoint didn't realise that , if only he had said multiball as well

Quoted from pipes:

No thanks needed. I’m so glad we could all donate our time to help support your cause big guy.

Wow it took you a whole day to come up with that

#1121 64 days ago

I think this is the first time it feels like most people would be happy to go with the SE version of a jjp game . If I had unlimited money I would go for the CE but if I was to get one I'd be happy to get the SE. Personally I prefer the stainless steel look over the black powder coat . There is now a poll going so vote on which version you would like to get .

#1128 64 days ago
Quoted from pipes:

Is there a pinball podcast out there that doesn’t give their opinion or review on games? If so, what exactly do you talk about then?

I feel that an opinion is different to a review . SDTM will do a review by category and end up with a higher score on a pin that they're not really into , over one they like more to play , for example Star Wars which finished near the bottom of their ratings but they both love to play it .

#1130 64 days ago
Quoted from pinmister:

I tend to like games that many do not.

I agree , my favourite pin is The Hobbit . I love the theme the shots the modes the music the layout the video clips for me it's the perfect pin , lots of people don't like it and that's fine , it just annoys me when people say it slow and floaty they obviously don't have the machine setup correctly . I'm not a fan of The Addams Family and Tron which lots of people love , it would be boring if everyone had the same opinion .

#1135 64 days ago
Quoted from pipes:

When you review something aren’t you giving your opinion on it?

Yes you are , but like the example I gave if you give a " review " category by category you can end up with a higher score on a pin compared the one you prefer to play , which has the lower score including animations , artwork , call outs and whatever than the one that scored higher .

#1362 60 days ago
Quoted from Chippewa-Pin:

- Every memorable scene you remember from the movie will be represented

Does that mean they will show scenes from early in the movie , the world going mad for Wonka Bars , the kids finding the golden tickets , Charlie in school etc . From what I've seen it looks like the game starts from when they're in the factory doing the tour .

#1365 60 days ago
Quoted from Amused_to_Death:

DETECTIVE: They want your case of Wonka Bars. Mrs. Curtis, did you hear me? It's your husband's life or your case of Wonka Bars.
MRS. CURTIS: How long will they give me to think it over?

Yeah that was funny , all those early bits are my favourite parts of the movie . It would be nice if those scenes could make it into the game .

#1369 60 days ago

Now that was totally random , but I liked it . Reminded of Tod Tucky at TNT.

#1373 60 days ago
Quoted from jwilson:

My understanding is that they can only really use the last 45 minutes of the film, due to license restrictions.

That would explain a lot . Pitty , I was hoping to see the whole movie Incorporated into the game

#1381 60 days ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

Don’t believe everything you see on the internet. :p

The "internet " told me there weren't going to be any video clips of the actors in potc , I asked my distributor and he said don't believe everything you read on the internet , who was right ? I'm not saying this is the end of wonka , licensing affects everything they couldn't even use the dog and the monkey in Pirates because of their agents .

#1398 59 days ago
Quoted from RA77:

Thanks mate,
If meant for this clip,
It is a tribute to Pat
I dig Pats Excellence !
PL and TZ is amazing !!!!
Pat Lawlor is "THE MASTER"

Ah.... That makes sense. Good job .
