They look great! Do you have a link for ordering and will they work on all models including the "mysterious " CE?

Thank you! link below. The only difference across the models is the wonkavator so these should work across all models. Free shipping, as always.

Congrats! Yep he dropped off 331 (your games brother) just prior. Huge shout out as I suspect the Great distributors don’t always get the praise they deserve. Took time from his family to drop our groups a Wonkas off on a Saturday. Christopher and Kingpingames is Fricken awesome in my book and a great person no question. My family and friends thank You!!!

EOS is end of stroke. It’s a switch that detects when a flipper is held, so it can adjust the voltage down and preserve the coil/keep it from cooking.

You should see a leaf switch somewhere near the upper right flipper, see if one of the wires came desoldered. Easy fix if so.

Despite accusations on pinside and soundcloud, I don’t work for JJP or have any kind of special relationship.
Just an enthusiastic customer who likes what they do.

I wasn’t implying any of that I just wondered when you might speculate it would be.

If you don't have a wire off there, check the other three flipper EOS switches for a wire off of one of them.

One of the big mysteries for this game has to be trying to understand why they removed “big points” from the final version of the game. Below is a side by side comparison of a prototype and LN the right is an LE final version.

I had a friend make this custom sticker. $5 shipped if you want one. Perfect? No. Helluva lot better than the big empty clear insert? 100%!

So today, the Gobstopper just decided to stop working...made some slight grinding sound and stopped...ugh...anyone else experience this?

#1765 1 year ago

Just got my Wonka LE on Friday. Set it up on Saturday. It worked great for all of two hours until I got the opto problem that a few people have been reporting (Trough error: All optos active). Now it's essentially unplayable (unless someone has a suggestion on how to work around this failure until JJP sends me a replacement board).

What a huge disappointment. I've been waiting for this machine for months, only to have it crap out after less than 20 games. Hopefully JJP is learning from this failure and will incorporate a check for this failure this into their QA process.

unfortunley happened to a lot of machines...the fix is to remove the 2 opto boards and re-flow the solder on every LED and connector...will be up and running again in 20 mins! Its a workaround that will work and just keep the spare boards for a rainy day

Maybe they did because they wanted to use the light for other purposes down the road.

“Big Points” is a random computer award, which you get from the Wonkavision shot. Doesn’t make sense to have it there anymore.

Exactly, just wish they had put a better diffuser on the cutout 'cause the LEDs are still a nice touch to the Most Secret Machine.

I agree that big insert looks naked without text.

#1781 1 year ago
Quoted from Rob_G:

If it's not just points, maybe it should say "Big Award"? It does seem kind of naked without any text.

Add this non related audio, and I'm game!!

Quoted from Adipocere:

Actually it does. The Wonka hat insert (when Scrumdidillyumptious is qualified), flashes so you can collect “big points”. The insert also strobes whenever the shot is lit for major scoring opportunities. So I think Big Points actually makes sense.

#1783 1 year ago

Then the insert should say COMPUTER AWARD.

Uffff - WONKA fell to 46 on the top 100 in the latest update

Quoted from Parzival:

That's because some nasty little Troll insiders went and red flagged all the good reviews.
Including mine. Lol
But who cares as I loves the Wonka!

Quoted from Parzival:

You have one guy seemingly raving about the game, and then he gives it a 6.3. I suspect a lot of people rating this are either doing so without playing it, or they've encountered mechanical issues in the field (which I can imagine are common with SE's at this stage until JJP fixes a few issues). It is still early and fluctuations are going to happen until more people get time with it.

That said, any list that manages to keep AC/DC in the top 10 has zero credibility with me to begin with.

#1788 1 year ago

Well, if I had followed the advice here on pinside I would have never bought our LE, which was delivered here last week.

Its been the biggest hit with everyone for years, including myself, but its early days so who knows if it will last.

Sound etc was my biggest concern. First game I thought Hmm, sounds awfull first few games , then I plugged in my noise cancelling headphones.

Wow, Different game, what an amazing package of sounds . I think something must be wrong, as there’s no pop bumper oompa loompa sounds without, Call outs are missing too , very strange.

Is anyone else experiencing this? I will check in with JJP service anyhow to see if anything needs adjusting.

For now though, very happy with wonka!

Quoted from Pinchild:

According to what Robin told me, the red flags don't effect the final rating number unless you use the filters (that aren't used by default). There are a bunch of low ratings with no comments from people that are Stern fan boys. I'd speculate that they didn't want Wonka rated above their favorite game. Unfortunately that is one of the problems with the ratings. I wouldn't hold too much value in the ratings ... even though I admit I keep an eye on them and the actual comments out of curiosity. If you look at the pins that they own and the ratings they have made, you can judge for yourself if their ratings/comments hold any value to you.

Absolutely. I wasn't pointing out the decline because it concerns me, moreso because the magnitude of the drop. We all know the top 100 is manipulated by owners, but I did think it was surprising that enough pinsiders wanted to lower WONKA to drop it that far. I think there was a thread early last week about WONKA being rated in the top 5. I'm thinking this drew attention and a lot of bogus low reviews.

I didn’t have that issue, but it’s an easy fix. The inserts come out with one of those star point screwdrivers and can be put into the correct hole.

#1796 1 year ago

Anyone having any trouble opening a ticket with JJP online? When I go to create a New Support Case and click Submit it says "Please enter value(s) for: Game Serial Number", but there is no text box to enter in the Serial Number so therefore I cannot successful submit the form.

I have a call into them and I am awaiting a call back.

Game is playing great. Only issue was the captive ball wasn't registering. Checked the switch, working just fine. What the hell? Oh, I guess I should have removed the packing foam in the trough. Oops, my bad. What a great machine!
