Someone correct me if I'm wrong but the only outstanding issue without a resolution right now is the diverter problem? Just tracking things in my head since POTC needed it's own thread...

Has anyone gotten any details or glimpse of a CE art package? I have asked around with Joe at Pinballstar and he hasn't been able to provide anything. I had my deposit down for the CE on day one, but seeing as they are reportedly starting to ship CE the end of August/September, I would have expected to see an art package by now.

Thanks!

#1653 1 year ago

Hey Jack,show me the CE now!

Same here but nothing... I keep asking JJP every so often and continue to get the same answer so...

#1655 1 year ago

I don't see a manual, schematic, or other documentation on the JJP site. Am I missing something or does anyone know when this info will be published? I've got a game that didn't boot out of the box, so I'm waiting for new a new CPU, processor, and memory to arrive in the mail. I figured that while I was waiting I'd learn more about the guts of the game.

I have been told a couple of weeks and all will be revealed. We are ALL waiting to see what great features will be included with the Collector's Editions.

Got my LE delivered this evening. #81. Shoots super smooth. I really prefer it with the left lane post in.
I ran into the subway kicker issue. Had to turn up the power to max to get it to work, but it worked. I’m getting a lower diverted error in the menu. When I test the coil it works, but the ball is only getting diverted 10% of the times it should(based on the sound effect firing). I’ll have to dig in to fix it tomorrow.
I’m loving the game so far. I’m consistently getting around 1 million and I had 3 or 4 gobstoppers collected in gobstopper multiball. Once I get the diverter working, I’m sure I’ll get more wonkavator multiballs too.

Curious to hear your diverter fix. Mine works around 80% of the time, but the 20% that fail are super frustrating.

Quoted from SaintJonus:

I did (seeing others posted doing so) and still had hangs. Tested just resting the ball up against the left posts with all rubber ring swaps I could and still no joy.

Running without a ring on the left post, which I do not like at all. Thinking of shaving a mm or so of the right swap ring to see if it will travel.

#1663 1 year ago
Quoted from SheriffBarclay:

Did you ever get help? Nobody here responded to you, which is unusual and frustrating I'm sure.
Seems like Wonka has even more issues than potc.. Sloppy..

Well I did not see any response to my post. I bought POTC and Wonka at the same time. Both LEs. Game design is amazing but the playfields are seriously below par. I’ve asked my distributor to replace my Wonka machine. I’ll let everyone know what happens. I’ve had the sling post issue with POTC but the Wonka is much worse. I’m not worried about POTC at this time although I used their star post repair kit. It was horrible! They provided six plastic washers. After installing they moved constantly. I first tried to tighten them more but they still moved and left an impression on the playfield. I took them out after two days and replaced with the rubber Hillman washers from Lowe’s. It is shocking to me that they would send replacement parts so obviously not up to what was needed. I’m hoping the impression damage doesn’t now cause the playfield to ripple outside of the new washer. Don’t see any solution if that happens. Won’t buy another JJ game for certain until the playfield issue is fixed 100 percent. I have three Sterns and one CGC and the playfields have no issues at all.

I think my issue is different. I’ve seen your stream and it misses some of the time. Mine misses almost every time and I have an error displayed when I go into the menu. I didn’t have time to mess with it today, so I’ll try to tackle it tomorrow.

#1665 1 year ago

Can't wait to sell few pins next week and get this game... its so good.

You are correct sir, I forgot to mention I did also have to shave quite a bit off the inlane ring. Not the most cosmetic solution but it has worked great. The outlane drains are pretty much equal now.

The slings were moving or just the washers underneath?

Sounds absolutely horrible, on both fronts.

#1668 1 year ago

Washers and posts but I suspect the only reason the posts moved was because the washers were plastic and slippery

I just installed the post, and moved the rubber from the inlane divider post over to it. works great. reminds me of TZ right inlane and outlane being divided by a wire instead of a post

I tried this, but when the ball dropped from the habitrail it kept bouncing over to the right inlane when it's supposed to be going to the left.

Personally I installed neoprene on my wonka and it made it worse so I took them off now I put plastic washers but the damage is done so I guess that’s that. I Still love wonka the gameplay and everything about it feels great i have a SE I can only imagine how the LE looks and feels.

I got my Wonka and set it up... I played this game at Midwest Gaming Classic and I have to say in the home environment this game is so much better. I just want to say that Jersey Jack Pinball is the best pinball company ever for the collector! This game is a total home run, I'm so excited about this game, there is so much to unpack! I enjoyed the game so much only a few words came to mind here are a few!

1) The game made me feel happy, like a kid again!

2) Jersey Jack is the Disney of Pinball.

This game is just pure magic, thank you Jersey Jack for once again reminding us how thru pinball we can feel so happy to love pinball!

Lastly I wanted to say that the Mod Couple is amazing they're the perfect compliment to Jersey Jack without a doubt! GRAB THIS GAME I might go as far as to say this is the great collector pinball game ever! Again just pure magic!

Here a request for WONKA... I'd like to see good side blade art made for this game.

I saw one for sale but that doesn't do justice to the game. We need one on the level of the more recent one done for WOZ.

Here is a suggestion... do the chocolate river, with the boat, candy, blah, blah. The game is missing the boat... that can be fixed with sideblade art.

Can someone do that?

As for a Mod I'd like to see a mod that fits over a ramp, a BOAT with Willy Wonka driving. Also near the Wonkavator there is a spot with two screens I think that needs a ledge with two umpa lumpas doing work. I think that would be cool.

The tolerances on space in the outlanes are really tight on this game. Maybe too tight. I tried putting a different rubber on the left slingshot and suddenly the ball would not even pass through the immediate left lane anymore. It gets caught between the rubber on the center post and the slightshot rubber and just stays there. I had to put the old white rubber back on and even then it now seems to have to wiggle through the space. I have not tried putting that left post in yet, even with a smaller rubber, but I suspect the same may happen. Not everyone is having the issue. Is it possible that these holes are not consistent between tables?

It seems like we need an even smaller diameter rubber for that center post on the left outlanes, but I don't believe one exists. I like to minimize the amount of bare metal the ball is striking if possible, so that my pinballs don't chip and start marking up the soft playfield.

Quoted from adamross:

Something to note is I used the lower of the 2 screw holes for the outlane post, and kept the black cap on the upper one. Did you do this, or try to use the upper of the 2 holes?

So feeling the way you do about Wonka and looking back now should you have got the CE?

Which mod is you Favorite?

I'm putting Mirror blades because they make Wonka look more Candyful

No. If I had CE money I would use that money to buy another pin to sit beside my SE.

#1681 1 year ago

I’m happy with my LE purchase. Wouldn’t have gotten a CE. Instead I bought Jp Pro with that money.

I blew it up last night. 2 golden tickets, finished office and look at that bonus!

I believe the golden ticket requirements are too high. I am a pretty good player and after a game of 40 min this is all I had. I even hit a double gobstopper super jackpot (2 balls in the hole before it closes.). All together I had 3 gobstopper multiballs, 3 kid mb, 1 wonkavator and I finished the whole tour.

#1682 1 year ago

Is there a link to the 1.09 ruleset anywhere? I noticed that the game didn't come with an owners manual, will one be delivered to us in the future, or available at JJP for download?

You know you have something there mirror blades might be the way to go but I was really hoping for something with the boat on it. I think I might take your advice and buy some mirror blades. The only problem I see with that is the game seems a bit dark near the top of the playfield.

As for which mod I like the most... if you ask me on Pirates I can tell you on Wonka I think they're all good.

Nothing really stands out yet because I just like them all.

I ordered pinstadium lighting to take care of that problem and they have assured me I won't have any reflective issues with mirror blades.

I'm not going to hook up flashers on them just GI because I don't want to interrupt the awesome light shows

No issues with darkness at the back of my game, nor is my game dark at all. Trough and backboard lights have worked for me. I think the mirrors help too.

You play with lights on. Many of us don’t. Without lights on it is terribly dark. Mine has since been corrected and is much improved.

My picture was taken in dim light, no flash. I dim the lights down low when I play. You will notice, however, that many of the inserts are lit when I took the pic whereas in your pic most inserts are off.

JJP needs to load up the CE with everything they can add even at a loss then add more and the kitchen sink. Also the day it releases they need to put out a Huge code update. If not the game sits like Dialed in CE at distributors warehouses.

Lets go JJP. This game should be Blockbuster.
