Quoted from Flipper_McGavin:

I was just about to update my machine to 1.34, but now I noticed Jersey Jack has no reference of the 1.34 patch on its website, they pulled the patch entirely. They must have been receiving too many complaints. Maybe we should hold off on updating.

I was just thinking the same thing. Best off to wait I guess.

#8102 10 months ago

No issues in my end just improvements. Just chiming in with new code.

#8108 10 months ago

Shame, they pulled the updated code.

I was planning on downloading it and updating mine this weekend. Oh well I’ll have to wait a little longer.

#8110 10 months ago

Maybe they posted the wrong code...the small one from a few months ago...that they decided to make better?

#8111 10 months ago

A little communication would be nice. I guess we all have to read minds or make assumptions. That always works out well. Lol I’m not sure how you remove code completely without even a notation.

#8112 10 months ago

Mine been working great too. Maybe they will add a few bells and whistles? Like a way to discern if you got the various kid jackpots while you are in Kid MB?
And some new Kandy Kodes?

One thing that I've noticed since I've been running 1.34 (and just now with 1.35) is that sometimes after I turn the machine on and just let it set for 5 min or so, the gobstopper hole will rote 90 degrees clockwise and remain in the 3 o'clock position. When I start a game, it then rotates 180 degrees to the 9 o'clock position (I have it set up super easy for the kids, so it normally starts with the gobstopper hole open) and tries to operate "normally" from there, but remains 90 degrees out of sync with where it should be. When I go to the device tests and spin it around to where it ought to be, it plays nice again. Still looking for more patterns to the behavior.

When I had weird behavior out of the gobstopper hole like that, it was loose set screws on the gear that spins the mech.
They eventually got so loose the gear dropped and stopped spinning entirely.

Easy no-cost fix, just raised the gear and retightened.

Thanks. I'll take a look tonight and see if that helps.

I had the same behavior on 1.34.. now after the update to 1.35 it seems to be gone.

#8118 10 months ago

Was on 1.34 with no complaints...tried the delta USB upgrade to .35 and failed 3 times. So then went for the full install to 1.35 - after game reboot it shows me still on 1.34...Think I’ll just enjoy .34 for a few more days before trying again.

#8119 10 months ago

Trying to figure this out. The link to 1.35 full update on the web site is dead. Based on posts above, it has been pulled by the company?

#8122 10 months ago

The new code, especially the randomization feature for Golden Ticket modes, has been great. I have finally gotten to see (and fail at) Wonka's Office without having a beyond-epic game.

#8123 10 months ago

So I successfully installed 1.34 a week ago and my game is connected to my WiFi.

An hour ago I downloaded 1.35 via WiFi and wonka told me that the download was successful.

Selected “install update” and pressed start button twice (as prompted).

My screen has been stuck as shown with no movement of the task bar for an hour.

Dare I shut the game off and try again?

Yeah, you're going to need to do the 1.35 update via USB (one final time they say). Sounds like 1.35 fixes at least one bug with the wifi updating. I had the same situation as you yesterday and had no troubles when I powered down and did the update via USB. Good luck!

#8125 10 months ago

1.35 worked for me using usb. Had to power cycle after successfully installing. I used the delta.

This is why I generally wait a couple of week before upgrading....on my pins and my iphone! Sometimes it pays to let the dust settle!!

Yeah I just tried the 1.34 to 1.35 delta upgrade using three different usb drives. They all failed. I unzipped the folders so they were in the drive’s root directory as illustrated on the JJP site, but no love.

Figure I need to do a full install now.

My 1.34 is working fine, so I may just wait a week or so to “let the dust settle” as it were.

For me, their instructions seem a bit off. After you extract the file, you'll have a folder named "wonka_update-v01.35". Inside that folder, there is a folder named "wonka_update". I move that "wonka_update" folder to the root of my usb stick. Then I'm able to get the update to work for me.

Odd, I did the update last night and just unzipped the file into the root directory on the USB stick, didn't move any folders around.

Did another backup before I did the installed. I unpacked the backup file and found that it contains the photos taken during the games, they are PNG files, nice little find.

I should probably note that I'm using Linux (Fedora 33), yes I'm a nerd. That may impact the behavior of my unzipping relative to what others experience. I never noticed (nor looked for) the photos in the backups. Cool find! Thanks.

#8131 10 months ago

If you're using Windows, as long as you unzip to root, you'll have a folder named "wonka_update", no version number. It'll work as is if so

#8132 10 months ago

Did you format the usb stick first? Might try that.

Also instructions when you unzip you just choose the root which sounds like you did.

Folder should just me wonka_update

Did the file fully download? What is the size ?

Agreed.. I've seen that one plenty and failed miserably most times lol... wait till you see the most secret machine .... I seen it for first time the other week and its awesome and probably one of my all time favorites now.

#8134 10 months ago

There is also different options now for collecting wonka bars from the upper left flipper to spinner shot . Also noticed u can pick what video quality you want the movie clips to be which is pretty cool.

#8135 10 months ago

Nice, what’s the default on the video quality? It really is a terrific game with great modes and satisfying shots..

I also ended up downloading the delta via usb. When I tried via wifi the download bar never moved. So quit out and tried it with the usb and it worked a treat. Enjoying Scorbit too!

I noticed this over the weekend and decided its best to wait until they feel its good enough to put back on the website..

#8137 10 months ago

Ok im confused. I see 1.35 on the website now, but thought the new version was 1.34?

They did two new releases lately?

So I assume, since I didnt do 1.34, I should just do the full install of 1.35? Im on 1.33 currently.

#8138 10 months ago

You will want to skip over the 1.34 and install the FULL 1.35 and NOT the delta.

#8139 10 months ago

So I just tried the delta upgrade from 1.34 to 1.35 on two different USB sticks (my go-to and a random) No luck.

I then tried a full install up to 1.35. Again on both sticks. No luck.

Finally, I tried the update over wifi (which was doomed from the start because 1.35 is fixing a 1.34 wifi error, right?) The 9mb file downloaded okay but hung on a "Can't Verify" error. So no luck there, either.

I thought St. Patrick's Day was supposed to be lucky! (Ha. No biggie, really enjoying 1.34.)

I didn't see that video quality option yet, not sure I understand what that would do, is it just changing the resolution / real estate taken up on the screen (which to me is completely different than "quality", can't fathom why you would want to actually adjust the true "quality"!)?

On earlier versions of Wonka, the video was made to look grainy on purpose, like an older movie. This was removed at some point. I would imagine that this options allows you to add the grain back.

Please start over fresh. Follow full install directions carefully. There are two mirrors on the website, USA and EU, try the one you didn't use. Then try different USB sticks. Nothing else on them, 8GB to 16GB.

#8144 10 months ago

Performed the 1.35 with no issues. Wondering where the USB Bluetooth Dongle goes?

#8145 10 months ago

I just did the 1.34 to 1.35 delta upgrade via usb. seems to have worked fine. the actual usb update part took about 2 seconds! about to play! come on 17 million!

I got one of these : https://www.microcenter.com/product/485912/inland-4-port-usb-31-(gen-1-type-a)-hub---black

Plugged it into the USB cable by the cashbox. Then plugged the WiFi dongle and Bluetooth dongle into it.

Same here, delta upgrade literally took about 2 seconds (so fast I thought it might have not worked), rebooted, and confirmed I'm on 1.35. Play time!
