Computer novice here, I am also running 1.33, So if I do a full install to 2.01 will the game then do wifi updates moving forward after the usb update? or do I have to add any hardware?

My GNR updates wifi now and that is awesome, I have had nothing but frustration and issues updating JJP games in the past.

Thx

#9603 69 days ago

So what's the general consensus around here with chipping on their Wonka's? I'm getting one of the new runs in the next couple months. Family really enjoys the pin so I decided to take the chance knowing it could chip. Anyone have zero chipping after owning for a couple years or is it inevitable? My WOZ never chipped years ago when I had it, but I don't remember if the PF was Micro.

#9604 69 days ago

Zero chipping since new in 2019

#9605 69 days ago

Zero chipping/pooling on mine since NIB 2020

I am in same boat, I am so happy to be getting WW. Favorite childhood movie by far.

#9607 69 days ago

I have pooling on my CE around the upper sling posts but no chipping as of yet... FWIW...

#9608 69 days ago

I think its about luck. No issues with my GNR LE although I am afraid to look closely.

#9609 69 days ago
Quoted from sirlonzelot:

My sons iPhone7 can’t find the machine. Any idea. With my iPhone 11 it isn’t a problem. But I like to add him

Make sure you go to My Venues, click on your venue, and add your son's user to the venue list. (If your venue is private.)

#9610 69 days ago

I'm still having issues with my Wonka LE after the 2.01 update (although I don't think it's related).

Sometimes it will kick 2 balls and even try to kick 3 balls into the trough. Seems to happen on multiball startup.

Also the flippers will die and the ball will end when there are still 2 balls in multiball.

Slugworth multiball kicks out 5 balls now.....

I check the trough opto boards and the plugs are all nice and tight. The shooter lane switch works fine and registers in test mode.

Any ideas?

Go into switch test and make sure all the optos on the trough board are registering correctly. Some have has success reflowing the connection on the trough boards.

Same thing happened to me. I had to reflow solder to the opto boards - both the sender and receiver. I had to add quite a bit of solder. Was a several week back and forth with JJP support to sort it out.

Quoted from sirlonzelot:

That appears to be the *venue* name, not the username. What user name? I see one on there named wal.

#9617 69 days ago

I see the game (Wonka) in the venue (sirlonzelot), owned by a user (wal). The venue is set to private, so unless user wal adds other users, you can't see the machine (or the venue). I hope that makes sense.

#9618 69 days ago

Wal is correct, sorry but I don’t know how to do that is there somewhere a how to ?

This is what I have done

#9619 69 days ago

Ok sirlonzelot have no fear!

There are many ways to do the same thing, and we're here to help.

On My Venues there, click on the word "sirlonzelot."

Then in the People tab that appears, add users (anyone you want. Add "jay" while you're at it. Then I can spy on you.)

IMG_3853 (resized).PNG

Once you've done that, any users you add will see you in the Play tab (the big S on the bottom of the screen).

We do have an instruction sheet, but it's way out of date, as we've added 100 features since then:

https://support.scorbit.io/hc/en-us/articles/360059013733-Jersey-Jack-Pinball-Scorbit-Players-Guide

We will update it again soon! Meanwhile, feel free also to visit our Discord channel here:

https://discord.gg/FEE7KYbQQY

We'll get you figured out. Also we'll be releasing some videos on how to use the app soon.

Finally downloaded newest code and hooked up scorebit. I figured most things out however I can't figure out how to get to the challenges/ achievement?

#9623 68 days ago

Maybe we need a separate thread for Scorbit? Just sayin...

#9626 68 days ago

Saw that Automated is offering Wonka LE's right now..

Yea I think people spoke too soon saying the new run was all sold out. I was easily able to get one from another distro. I think these will be easy to buy new for awhile.

#9628 68 days ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

Finally downloaded newest code and hooked up scorebit. I figured most things out however I can't figure out how to get to the challenges/ achievement?

First, two documents:

How to activate:

https://support.scorbit.io/hc/en-us/articles/360056606854-Activating-a-Jersey-Jack-Pinball-Machine-on-the-Scorbit-Platform

How to use it (outdated but will give you the general overview):

https://support.scorbit.io/hc/en-us/articles/360059013733-Jersey-Jack-Pinball-Scorbit-Players-Guide

For the benefit of the thread:

When you download Scorbit (no "e" in Scorbit btw, common misunderstanding), you first register/log in.

Next, you go to the Scorbit menu on Wonka (Utilities > Scorbit)

Next, you scan the QR code.

It will prompt you to create a venue. Do that. Please put at a minimum your postal code, city, and country. However, if you put your address, the GPS elements of the app will be more precise in showing you other venues and helping the app know where it is located. Your information is never visible to others or shared if you do choose to put it in. Also, you choose "pubic or private." Public means your venue (your home) will show up on people's apps when they scan the area (with no address listed). This is good for an arcade or bar. Private means your venue will not show up on people's apps when they scan the area. Either way your scores are always public.

Next, it will prompt you to "create" a machine representing Wonka in our Internet world. Do that.

Now it will pair them together.

Next, when you want to play, hit the big S in the middle of the bottom of the app. Find the game. Tap on the game, and it will say "Waiting to Start."

For now on, when you hit start/etc, the game will be visible on the app. Press Player # and you will "claim" that player slot for that game. After the game, you can save your score to the local (machine) leaderboard and global leaderboard.

You can also automate a lot of this in the Account Menu > Settings > Playing Preferences and Viewing Preferences.

However, the BEST way to learn all this is to play, and to read the Scorbit Official Thread here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/scorbit-official-thread

Thanks!

They said they did on facebook. Can anyone confirm that this is actually true? Hard to tell from the pics, is that just the same line GNR goes on?

I am new to pinball (About 3 months) and I am wondering about play numbers. I see people who have had their pinball machines for 1year+ but the machine has 200 or less plays. Do they do this on purpose because they plan to sell or is it they just don't like the pin that much? I haven't given it any thought and have been having a blast. My family and I have put 400+ plays on AIQ in a month. I was wondering about how many plays would be a normal amount for lets say a per year rate? Can't wait for my WW to show.

Like knowing how many miles is a lot versus a little on a vehicle.

Some folks have collections with lots of pins and thus don’t play any one pin all that much. Similarly your entire family may be playing whereas others it might be only one person.

Play the game, get your money’s worth and don’t worry about the plays!

400 plays in a month is pretty good for at home, over 10+ plays per day.

No problem (it's Scorbit btw, no "e"), happy to help out!

There are essentially three steps to making it work, and for Steps 2 and 3, I'll post a link at the end with a tutorial. (I should also just post a video of this.)

** Step 1: Connect the game to WiFi **

- Make sure your game has the latest Wonka code! If it's been a while, go here and update it:

https://www.jerseyjackpinball.com/support/

- Ensure your game has the WiFi dongle plugged into the USB extension inside the coin door area. If not, you can buy one here:

amazon.com link »

- In the Wonka game menu, go to Full Menu > Utilities > Network > Set Wifi Network and choose your WiFi, and save.
- In the same area, go to Network > Set WiFi Password and set your password, and save.
- Finally go to Network > Connect to Wifi. Once it's connected, you can go to Step 2.

** Step 2: Download the Scorbit app and create a free account **

- You can do this a multitude of ways, but a simple way is to click this link on your mobile phone:

https://scorbit.link

** Step 3: Connect to Scorbit and Start Playing **

- In the Wonka game menu, go to Full Menu > Utilities > Scorbit Settings > Connect. You should see a big QR code and a message "Connect to Scorbit."
- Take your app, and press the QR code symbol on the upper right of the app. You can also do this from your camera app or any QR code scanner.
- Follow the instructions as the app connects your game to the Scorbit platform.

To actually play, hit the big S on the bottom of the app. If you set your venue location correctly in Step 3, it should list your venue or the machine. Click on the machine (Wonka) and it should say Waiting to Start... Press start on the game, and while playing, or after, tap the "Player 1" slot and it will connect. You'll see your name on the actual game screen as you play, and achievements will work!

Here is are two slightly out of date but useful tutorial documents:

Is the ability to cancel out of a video by pressing both flippers a new 2.0 code feature, or am I just the last person to realize you can do that? I never noticed it until 2.0, but can't say for sure if I ever tried it prior.

I think it was new to beta 6 (release 2.0), can skip videos to release ball and keep gameplay going.

Quoted from Rager170:

He's saying he has them "In Stock"

Wonder if that means he has physical stock? Or that he can place an order and have it fulfilled in the monts to come?

#9647 65 days ago

The biggest question on my mind, and on many others, will the play field have the same issues as GnR?
I have a Wonka LE back from 2019 and have no play field issues. I’m only hoping these won’t either.
