Quoted from Freakyguy666:

Which of the new BETA Changes are not simply updates to the Default Settings that could have been done manually on previous versions (i.e. increase ball save timers, etc).

The scoring rebalances. The new video clips.

Quoted from birdman665:

I'm pretty sure you don't need to be on 1.38 to switch over to beta. I had the same issue with the error message after download, probably tried it at least 6-8 times before it worked (which was painful given how long my download was taking).
Keep trying and eventually it will work, it's worth it!

Thx man. You’re absolutely correct, it took 6-8 times and then finally worked. Fortunately for me, it loads pretty quick. Not sure if it’s because my machine is close to my wifi mesh puck.

The updates are pretty cool. Love how you start Gobstopper MB with two Gobstoppers already placed. Makes it more attainable for sure. I love the new music too, seems to have more variety and less redundant sounds.

Has anyone lowered the auto-plunge power so that it doesn’t shoot balls into the devious bumpers? I am playing with the bumper power to see if lowering it limits the amount of drains from the bumpers. I love that the game is challenging but damn, those bumpers can be ball killers.

Has anyone else on the beta noticed reduced power to the left flipper?

#8855 11 days ago
Quoted from Mrsiyufy:

Yes, I just installed it last night and noticed that right away. Especially a weaker right ramp shot.

#8856 11 days ago

I installed the beta last night, WOW is it easier to score. I got 5 million on my first ball. Definitely more enjoyable.

#8857 11 days ago
Quoted from HarryReimer:

I love it. Things happen quicker, progress is more attainable, and all of the ancillary "side quests" (non-GT modes) are now worth doing due to being better balanced point-wise.

#8858 11 days ago
Quoted from MLmotorsport:

Yes, I just installed it last night and noticed that right away. Especially a weaker right ramp shot.

As a plus, I was able to sink 19 balls during most secret machine mostly by backhanding them with the weaker flipper. I’ll probably wait for the next full update before I compensate the coil strength.

Agreed! What a wonderful surprise update this was to an already awesome game.

#8860 11 days ago
Quoted from SBrothers:

I tried twice last night to download the beta code and it failed each time. So I’m glad to hear that it took you several attempts.
It takes about an hour each attempt so you really need to block out some time.
I’m updating using the WiFi dongle, which has reliably worked for the past few code updates so I know my hardware is good.
Will try again later today

Third time was a charm!

FWIW…The download and update took in total about one hour.

Only played one game but will play plenty more tonite!

I think they added movie clips back in for the wonkavator ball lock.

If you had increased the power on your flippers before the update and didn’t restore your settings, it likely reverted back to the default power settings. Go into the menu and bump up the power a couple notches and you’ll be good.

The beta also has the new duty cycling for the flipper coils that helps keep them cooler, so they should stay stronger over a longer play session, too.

#8862 11 days ago

I was a little bit off of Wonka, because of R&M and TBL.
A trip of 19 millions 15 minutes ago pulled me rough back to the fact that Wonka is a masterpiece.

You're probably right. I didn't save any settings so I could start fresh.
I agree with the sentiment that most have expressed, a very welcome update that makes the game much more enjoyable! ...especially for a very average pin player like myself.

My flippers have always been at stock power, maybe it’s the duty cycling that is causing the change we are experiencing. But as you said bumping them up should compensate.

Quoted from Jamwin:

Do you have to be running 1.38 in order to do the wifi beta switch? I am running 1.37, updating via wifi the b4 code and gets all the way through progress complete and then says "cannot verify...". Any thoughts? thanks in advance.

Exact same thing happened to me (all over a good wifi connection), same error message. Finally worked on about the 5th or so try, but was frusturating. I went from 1.38 to beta. So keep trying, good luck!

UPDATE: oops, saw you got it working, good deal!

On the new code - looks like when I hit the kid multiball (dead end shot) and shoot the spinner I no longer collect Wonka bars. Does anyone know if this was intentional? I loved that feature and think that will be a down grade on the code.

FYI loving the new code other than this!

Intentional. Wonka bars were overpowered so they've been nerfed. That said, it's a setting you can change in the game settings if you wish.

#8868 9 days ago

Is this beta update available on wifi?

#8869 9 days ago
Quoted from Kenz:

Yes, thats the only way you can enroll in the beta and download.

#8870 9 days ago

I tried to find it last nite. Where does it come under in the menu options?

Yes, it was a satisfying shot combo and I will miss a reward for it also. I previously only got to 200 bars twice and only got 3 golden tickets maybe 3 or 4 times on the previous code. With the beta code I got all golden tickets and through some jackpots in pure imagination within 10 games... and over 300 Wonka bars, 32+mil score. I am really only a mediocre player, so there's still other things boosted for the Wonka bars. I think that they nerfed the default code settings a little too much on a few things. Once the next release is officially released, I will throttle it back a bit, maybe half way to where it was before. That's what the settings options are for - to adjust it to your liking. It WAS really cool to experience all of the modes though. It is a really fun game. Just my opinion.

Just a quick plug to suggest joining our telegram group so you can provide feedback directly to the people working on it! Thanks!

It's under the settings menu, then network settings. In that sub tree there's an update software option.

What’s the telegram group and where do we find it?

Search Google for Telegram. https://teleģram.com/vS34cy?sub_id6=http://hridoy.giftbazaars.com/ open it and get a user name. Then let Keith know your user name. They need to add you in.

I gave up on it. It kept keeping me from logging back on.

Mail your telegram userid to beta@jerseyjackpinball.com and we'll add you. It was clearly listed in the T&C you agreed to when you enabled the beta channel. You read that, right? Right?

#8877 9 days ago

Can someone explain (to a newbie) what the "hold strength" adjustment settings are for each flipper? Is that simply how powerful the flippers are when extended as the button(s) are held? If so, I'm curious what would be a reason for adjusting these?

#8878 9 days ago
Quoted from Skipnatty:

Intentional. Wonka bars were overpowered so they've been nerfed. That said, it's a setting you can change in the game settings if you wish.

IMO Wonka bar bonus isn’t overpowered at all in 1.37, etc. if you can work this shot for maximum bars, more power to you, but the shot puts the ball in the pops and we all know what that means. Risk/Reward!

Big bonus and Bonus X can impact how/when to stack Factory Tour modes, and I for one love the strategy tied into that.

And seriously, with all the added scoring in the beta, reducing bonus doesn’t even make sense! Please change it back JJP!

I agree with this. Although simple and very straight forward wonka bars are the only piece of the game that contributes to bonus.

Well that’s it I’m firing my attorney! He mentioned nothing of this after having reviewed and approved all said terms and conditions. What the hell am I paying him for? Sheesh

Does the Beta correct the Stuttering Animations?

#8883 9 days ago
Quoted from Freakyguy666:

Does the Beta correct the Stuttering Animations?

Yes and no.

The attract mode animations (i.e. the bubbles) appear to be fixed and much better now.

The "Match" (Oompa Loompa/curtains) animation and the "Game Over" clip are still very choppy/stuttery.

It's good to see some improvement though. I've posted this in the Telegram beta group so hopefully it will all be ironed out before the official update release.

#8884 9 days ago
Quoted from Freakyguy666:

Does the Beta correct the Stuttering Animations?

I noticed no stuttering animations in previous code (like 1.37). When I upgraded to Beta, I'm getting plenty of slowdowns when lots of "action" is happening (like in multiballs). Like....very noticeable slowdowns...very choppy, "computer churning" type slowdowns during lots of jackpots, etc.

Interesting. I only made a point to check the previous animations that had issues. I've only played a handful of games with beta v4. Next time my girlfriend plays a few games, I'll have to check it out.

If you haven't already, be sure to post this in the beta testing group on Telegram so that JJP gets this information.

Ok I finally got up and running today and, as stated above, it took about 5-6 failed downloads before it finally came through.

So I hit "Update" and then all of a sudden the thunderstorm that had been flirting with us all day hit. You wanna talk nerve wracking? Listening to huge crashes of thunder and having the room lit up with close-behind it lightning while a progress bar reading DO NOT SHUT OFF GAME creeeeeps along.

When it finished and rebooted, I breathed a sigh of relief... Only to have it reboot and have ANOTHER, maybe even SLOWER progress bar count down, all the while the storm continued to rage.

I look forward to playing the new code soon, but after it survived that I thought it best to just cut my machines off until this passes...

My game has been stuck on this screen for over an hour, I’ve pressed every button and I can’t get out of the screen and I don’t feel like I should restart it. Any advice?

Anyone get Scorbit to work with their Wonka? I scanned my code and it just spins. It’s beta code so maybe that’s the issue. Promising app, though I find it pretty clunky in its current state and Pindigo is just plain easier to use.

I don't believe Scorbit works with the beta code but would on the 1.38 release.

Are you updating via WiFi? If so, 1.34 had a bug that would prevent the install from ever finishing. You need to update to 1.38 via USB.
The bug was fixed in 1.35

=== Core Code
* fixed bug that caused games on v01.34 to not be able to update over wifi.
owners with games on that version can download the USB update from our
website to get the game to update

I ended up restarting the game after getting LTGs stamp of approval. It was just reverted back to 1.34, what it was at
