Quoted from zaphX:

YOU! YOU took the number I wanted!!

What? You mean 42? Yeah, I got it. After all, it is the answer to the ultimate question about life, the universe, and everything.

Regarding me getting cheated out of extra balls

Quoted from rrosenhouse:

Likely, the game settings changed to only award points for the extra ball.

That fits. They must have changed the EB award for a tournament night, and forgot to change it back. Nex time I’m in I’ll leave a Post It note for the operator.

I admit, when I was looking for those EBs, any point award would have flown under my radar.

#3453 6 days ago
Quoted from Dr-pin:

Does it cost extra to chose number?

No. When I got my JJPOTC CE, about a year ago, Joe Newhart (@pinballstar) gave me my pick of the three machines he had available. 42 was an easy choice. And by putting down my deposit for WWCF in April, Joe let me reserve CE #42.

I hit the jackpot if JJ ever makes a Hitchhiker’s Guide.

Would you swap an Iron Maiden LE for a Wonka LE? I'm considering doing just that. Interested to know the thoughts of other Wonka owners. Hope this question is allowable in this thread.

I have a buddy who has Iron Maiden and he loves my Wonka SE
They are both great shooters with 4 flippers and lots of shots.Wonka is better for me better light light show ,sound and theme

I know I’m repeating myself but is anyone working on a Wonkatania topper?I think I’ve completed my SE so I just need to crown it!

Yes, if you've gotten your fill of IMDNLE. I really enjoyed that game, got the full experience, then moved on to Willy Wonka. I'm now enjoying Wonka, but will move it on eventually. There are no keepers.

Yes, that is not understandable.
The LED strip costs a dollar, and the camera cover so that the light is not reflected 50 cents.

Oops we’ll at least I can tell everyone how great your Wonkvator is!

Why the extra “M” after 10A.M.?

#3464 3 days ago

I lifted and set up my Wonka CE today as well as one for gasoline. Good times!

Quoted from Freakyguy666:

The design is not mine, make a new one with the date of birth or LE number of the pinball machine.
This was just a test print of the size.

#3466 3 days ago

Just got my CE what’s this loose usb cable plug into? It was loose in the bottom.

Return it, clearly a piece of junk!

Just kidding. It's actually a pretty thoughtful design... it fits a USB stick so you can update code without having to open the backbox up. Enjoy

Pretty soon it will go wi fi right?

#3469 3 days ago

Also one more question. These two balls where stuck in the game when I opened it up. It’s stuck on the magnet. I’m trying to fire them In test to free them up but I’ve been unsuccessful as I’m new to this test menu. Are these for multiball I assume?

The first ball is actually bolted to the playfield. It's called a 'newton' ball. You hit the newton ball with the game ball and it will drive the other ball in the channel up to the yellow target at the top of that lane. Perfectly normal.

For future wifi updates a dongle would plug into that usb cable ... once the development and beta testing is completed. In progress.

Gumby510. Your wonka ce is clearly a lemon.. your best bet is to trade me straight up for my very well playing and very well modded le. Let me know.. thanks

What's the general honest opinion on this game so far? Keep debating between Wonka and star wars comic. Opinions?

#3475 3 days ago

Wonka is the fun that just keeps coming!Its just very addictive and super challenging.
JJP's feel solid and I love the large monitors

Wonka by a mile, easy. And I do own both. (My Star Wars is the original though.)

Quoted from konghusker:

I think it comes down to what theme you like more. Each are very different games and what else you have in your collection. I sold my Deadpool pro and picked up the wonka ce. I had never played it before I paid for it. I did drive to California to play a wonka SE last week. I say play both as much as you can and decide. Wonka is amazing with so many shots and the playfield lighting effects just leave you mesmerized.

Quoted from konghusker:

I had a Star Wars for three years and loved every minute of it. Traded it for a Wonka SE last week, no complaints and having a blast with it.

Will I keep it for 3 years? Probably not.

Both are great choices, and I do feel that the SE is a much better value than SW with the amount of features and build quality.

But SW is one of those games that never gets stale with the speed, flow, and infinite ways to blow it up. Some people REALLY hate the code on SW though, so make sure you play a bunch prior to purchasing to make sure it clicks if you decide to go that route.

I know Star Wars comic version looks better,but gameplay is the same?

#3481 2 days ago
Quoted from romulusx:

Yes, same gameplay. The main issues I have with the code:

1. The multiplier timeout which requires you to stop what you’re doing and hurryup to feed it. Constantly.
2. Overuse of the video mode which itself a tedious game.

Star Wars was my first pin and I have a soft spot for it, but we really don’t play it these days.

Oh crap check this out!I was actually sweating!My high score was 4.2 mil

Thanks I got in the zone for alittle while

#3487 2 days ago

Nice score man.. the game gets intense the further you dig in. It really is a amazing pin and I think if more people get over the sound and speech/video sync and actually play the game they will be amazed how good it really is. I can't explain why it's so good it just is and the longer I have it the more I like it which is opposite of most pins. I think it will b like potc in a year or so and be very well liked and in demand. I personally like it much more than potc which I will be selling soon to bring in newer pins. I can wait till toy s is released but looks like that cld be a while unfortunately.

#3488 2 days ago

Wonka is 6.7• all factory settings
and your right it got pretty intense
That was only my third time at Wonkas office,if you slow it down that bonus is easy to win.The first time I was kind of busy lookin around

#3489 2 days ago

i would pick Wonka over every pin out there right now. i own IMDN premium, have played a ton of Star Wars, as well as JJPOTC and I just bought WOZ. I think WONKA outshines all of those easily. the only game that comes close to Wonka is IMDN for fun factor and shot count. the rest are just a bit behind. POTC is a close third on these options.

the best part is, i'm not good enough to really pierce the game too deep, so the game will ALWAYS have something i want to see and achieve. always! a blessing and a curse.

Would do it in a heartbeat, providing no playfield issues.

I’m fine with game as is but it would be cool if that could add something like they did with Dialed In
