Quoted from NathanN:
Finally a Wonka Review!!!
Thanks, didn’t catch it in the 5 other Wonka threads you just posted in
Quoted from Adipocere:
These are the only ones I have seen so far. I am interested to see what the official JJP ones are, as well as what other companies may come up with. Overall, not very many of the mods I have seen early on for this game seem like must haves at this point. I hope we will see more options as time passes.
Thanks for sharing. Yea these feel a bit uninspired, the JJP ones will probably be the best bet. Their blades for WOZ were awesome.
I'm certain this was discussed to death already so please excuse the redundancy but left outlane is an f'ing vacuum. Is the move to install the included spare post but leave off the rubber?
Quoted from PokerJake:
I installed the post in the first spot and used the rubber that was on the post seperating the inlanes. That rubber seems to be smaller than the one they provided in the bag. It works great.
So post separating the inlanes is naked without a rubber? I tried that but didn't like the way it affected the ball dropping from the wire from.
This keeps happening.. forces me to remove the PF every time since ball search won't find it. Anyone else? Is this the diverter issue everyone is speaking of?
Does anyone know why JJP decided to keep the big light under the Gobstopper blank instead of the "BIG POINTS" they had in the earlier streams? Odd choice...
Quoted from frobozz:
Does it wedge every time? Looks like it's either bent or assembled wrong. If you take the plastic cover off, it should become more obvious. The diverter flap is supposed to be screwed in the farther away pair of holes; there should be the other pair of holes still visible closer to the hinge side of the relay coil. Is it screwed into the wrong (closer) holes? Is the armature plate popped off of the hinge? Is the spring missing? Is something obviously bent?
Turns out it was user error - i had to remove the wire form for another issue. When i reinstalled it, i jammed it just a bit too far in and it was blocking the space the ball goes through.
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.
Quoted from Lermods:
Hi everyone, we are ready to formally introduce our interactive Wonkavator. This Wonkavator fills the area in the back in the SE (may fit le, but haven't tested fit) and is interactive with the spinner super lock, which lights when a Wonkavator ball lock is ready. The Wonkavator features spinning fan blades, inside light and an external color changing RGB spotlight that also lights the outside when the spinner super lock is lit or flashing.
The mod was a joint effort with Random Pinball (aka Toyotaboy) and features Rock Custom Pinball's GameOn technology rock914).
We hope you like it! We have one in stock with more on the way over the next week.
Brilliant work. Would love to know if it's compatible with the LE.
I'm having an absolute blast playing my LE. Best shooting game I've ever had in my collection. Very few adjustments / fixes out of the box but nothing major.
Can anyone advise how to update 1.08 to 1.13? All I see on JJP website is the delta upgrade from 1.06.
edit: I'm assuming the 1.06+ to 1.13 delta upgrade will do the trick. But game doesn't seem to be recognizing my USB. Tried 3 different sticks to no success. Does upgrade not work with Macs?
edit: Could it be the update only works with USB 2 sticks only? Cuz that just worked.
Quoted from flynnibus:
There are alot more shot callouts... but I don't think they are the most descript at times.. or often confusing. It will say 'camera ramp' or 'factory'.. or 'shoot for the gobstopper'. I've found naming of the shots contradictory too... is the orbit under the TV the right orbit.. or is it the orbit on the side, people sometimes call the side orbit?
I do find myself needing to look at the wonkavision monitor to find what I'm supposed to be doing for the blue modes. The progression of shots isn't always the most intuitive and it can be difficult to pickout the arrow lighting when lots of stuff is going on.
Clearer naming is a problem in the community around this game for sure.
I second this. It's often confusing where to shoot for and I find callouts rarely help IMO
The update took all of 20 seconds to install so wondering if I did something wrong. How do I find out which version is installed?
Quoted from waynetrane:
I was not satisfied with the sideart on the market, so i decided to do some Wonka sideboarddecals by myself.
After the first proto-print i needed to edit some elements in size and position.
I'll see on friday how the 2nd print will fit.[quoted image][quoted image]
Quoted from waynetrane:
Still some minor adjustments, for exsample the most secret machine decal or the backboard fits not 100%
And i'm waiting for Mezel's Factory Pipe Upgrade!
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
How did you get the images for the CE side art decals?
Quoted from JediPimp:
I notice that people seem to love all the mods for WW, particularly the Modfather and Mezel ones, however I notice that no one has installed the chocolate waterfall river mod that goes over the Wonkavator exit?
has anyone bought and installed that one? I am curious as to how it actually looks on the playfield.
Sorry if it's already been mentioned but ball is having trouble making the boomerang ramp on auto-launch. Strengthening the spring doesn't seem to help. Is there an easy solution?
Having trouble with the full install of the latest update on my Mac. Is there an alternate method that doesn't involve Unebootin because it doesn't seem to want to launch on my MacBook.
Quoted from LTG:
If you use a Mac to update, like I do, you will find that the UnetBootin app no longer works on MacOSX Catalina. I downloaded the latest version and it too is broken.
There is a workaround! Assuming the app is in your Applications folder, open Terminal and paste in the following:
Thank you zaphX !
LTG : )
Awesome. Thank you!
Wonka was this 7-year-olds favorite game at last night's Mandalorian premiere party.
Quoted from Vitty:
Thanks Lloyd! That’s what it was. Both slings had the issue actually so I adjusted them both. A few games in now and they seem to be all good. Took me a few tries to really dial them in.
Without these blade art protectors I don’t know what I would have done. My playfield is so tight against the cabinet on the left side it would be impossible to avoid scratching the art.[quoted image]
Where'd you get those protectors? Couldn't find them on Pinball Universe website
How does one find the difficulty setting in the settings menu? From what I read isn’t there a medium or easy setting
Quoted from crobby:
Full disclosure: With stock settings, I couldn't sniff it either. I made a few settings tweaks that seem to give me [and my poor skills] a reasonable balance between being super challenging but still being possible. I made the changes back in January and since then I've hit Pure Imagination twice and made it to The Most Secret Machine 4 or 5 times. Still rare enough that I get all excited when I get to one of the modes....and usually play it poorly.
Which settings did you adjust?
