Quoted from jsa:

Scorbit works on both beta and release.

Thanks for the heads up. Not really a scorbit user but I thought it was restricted for beta build 4 since the scoring was so different. Good to know

I recall that in the beta group they asked us not to post scores on Beta 4 thru Scorbit since the scoring was drastically different.

Ah that's probably what I was remembering, thanks for the clarification.

Just got my Wonkavision scoop cliffy's. Figured I would ask before I install, is there any trick to removing or putting down the Wonkavision LCD? Thanks!

I have that too but havent installed it. Do you really have to remove the Wonkavision LCD?? Im surprised by that.

#8906 42 days ago

It is located under/behind it and I know I won't be able to get in there without removing or at least undoing it to be able to reach the scoop. I am all ears if there is a different way to not remove the Wonkavision LCD.

I thought it was a little in front of it and that you could just remove some plastic and posts to get there. Havent given it a good look.

I know others in the past have mentioned to be super careful with that LCD, so if you do have to remove it, that cliffy might just never go on.

#8908 42 days ago

Definitely agree with you Rager. If anyone has loaded the Wonka Scoop from Cliffy, would you mind chiming in and let us know what was your method?

#8909 42 days ago

Interested in this as well!

Get the latest beta code and you'll get to pure imagination for sure! The code was heavily rebalanced. Who knows if it will stay for actual release but a lot of people really like it.

#8913 40 days ago

On new beta code I finally got more than 2 golden tickets. Actually managed 4 but was only able to play the first two mini wizards before draining. The only one I was missing was the Wonkavator ticket. This is such a great game!

Completely off topic, but the picture that you had taken looks good. Mine ALWAYS shows me looking far down...

Does anyone know if you can adjust the camera angle? Im not super tall, 6'1"..

Are you looking at the fake camera on the playfield? Look at the real one at the bottom of the backglass

#8916 40 days ago
Quoted from frobozz:

Im not "looking" at either when it takes a picture. Im simply playing the game and focusing on the playfield, which all of us look down at.

Unless that picture I mentioned was "posed" for?

Basically, Just curious if anyone has tried to adjust the camera (the real camera in the backglass haha)

In Tests - Devices - Camera you can do some adjusting.

LTG : )

#8918 40 days ago

I've never adjusted the camera in any way, but I do like to look into the camera (and usually make funny faces/poses) when hitting "end" with the start button after entering my name/initials. My friends and family do the same. It makes for a fun leaderboard gallery

My camera works fine EXCEPT during Oompa Loompa odyssey during which it focuses on my chest and not my head. I’ve looked for adjustments in the menu but no luck. I can get it to track my face in settings no problem. Until you’re in a game and hit Oompa Loompa odyssey then it just loves to focus on my shirt. So weird.

Some newer version of Wonka code tries to suss out how tall you are when going into this mode. Make sure you're on the latest version and see if this is still having that issue.

Ahh, I forgot that it can take a picture at the end as well. It seems random to me though as it doesnt always do it.

I feel like more often than not, it is using the picture from when playing the game hitting the camera ramp.. and when it uses that photo, im always looking down because I am playing.

At the end, put in your initials, but do NOT select end. Depending on your lighting, lean in (if low lighting) and smile or make a face at the camera in the backglass below the giant LCD/LED screen. Be posed for at least two seconds and then press the start button to select End and it will get a good picture. Works for me everytime.

Mine does the same thing. It's gotta be a coding issue.

Oh wow, awesome tip! I will definitely give this a try. Thanks!!

Also, if you have glasses and/or a beard it has trouble recognizing where your face is. Shave and wear contacts instead lol.

You can go into the camera settings to see it trying to recognize your face with an outline box, but I can't remember if you can change the sensitivity or not.

#8926 39 days ago

Hats, beards, and some face shapes seem to give it fits. My buddy put up previous grand champ score and his photo was empty. He was wearing a hat and had a thicker beard at the time. He was pissed!

I often do wear my glasses becuase playing pinball with contacts is hard.. Eyes get dry quick...

Ill play around with some settings.. But I definitely didn't know that the camera will search for your face anytime you enter your initials...

#8928 39 days ago

You can just about forget getting a good picture if you're wearing a mask, too (a problem that did not become obvious until about a year ago!)

#8929 39 days ago

I don't really get the point of the after game pictures.....they don't show up in the attract mode like they do in DI. So you really only see it for a few seconds.

If you make the leaderboard, the picture you take after you enter your initials shows up in the attract mode during the gallery of high scores.

As mentioned by others, it will certainly come up in attract mode. Also, I believe if you press the left flipper button 2 or 3 times during attract mode, it will cycle to the pictures scoreboard.

I’m running the beta code now and it does it. Prior to the beta I was on the latest code and it still videos my chest during Oompa Loompa odyssey. The code version before that worked fine.

I’m thinking it’s a code deal.

It recognizes my face just fine when in settings mode. It only started this with the. Last two code changes.

Paul Madison was in and lit up Willy Wonka on his birthday.

I sure as hell hope so! I’m on 1.37. Can I upgrade to betas from it?

Yes, you need to have a wifi adapter to enroll into rhe beta and upgrade.

Simply opt in for beta updates from the advanced settings menu. Anyone can do this now.

I bought the three WiFi/USB items Lloyd recommended. Just need to find the post on how to use them to do updates.

Yes. Bear in mind Paul is a world class tournament player.

Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

Plug the WiFi dongle into the USB cable by the cashbox. Or plug the Wifi and Bluetooth dongles into the hub and then plug the hub into the USB cable by the cashbox.

Do a full install of the latest software, 1.38. Then go into Utilities - Network Settings - then do all the stuff the screen says. Terms and conditions. Pick the WiFi channel you'll use. Enter your password. Connect to WiFi.

Ahhh…that explains his world class score then!

I recently loaded the beta and have only hit 15M so far. I know I will do better.

Good to know that 81M is at least humanly possible. Perhaps not this human, but a human nonetheless!

Thx Lloyd. To be clear, I can update to 1.38 (from 1.37) over wi-if? This actually requires a “full update”?

Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

If network settings is in 1.37, then yes. Check your game. Then do the network settings stuff.

If not, then you need to do a full install of 1.38 using a USB stick.

Congrats! It's a super fun game for sure!

Your question is a bit subjective, but I did a bunch of mods and made a series of videos, if it helps you at all.

Welcome to the club!

The only must is adding some lighting. Game is too dark. I added 3 spotlights and made the game much more enjoyable.

#8948 37 days ago

#1 to me is shaker (SE?) #2 is lighting the back area with light strip or I think mezel mod and #3 is lighting up the back glass again I think mezel mod kit
