Quoted from kermit24:
How many CE games will be produced? I hope they don’t keep it open ended without a certain number.
Quoted from KingPinGames:
in the times that is it not grabbing and diverting the ball, would you say the ball is traveling at normal speed down the ramp or faster than normal?
Dang, when I first saw you made a post, and before I read it, I got really excited that you were going to say our LE's were in...
Anybody have this problem with their le? I think the insert is in the wrong hole.
Quoted from Weedlum:
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.
Wonderful, thank you. And a big thank you to Chris at Kingpin games for personally delivering my le and helping get it in the house. Great guy!
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!
Quoted from donkadelic:
Considering the movie is just about as German as it gets (soulless, mechanical, boring). And based on a book by a British author, not sure why this matters.
I'm sorry I don't like Wonka as a child serial killer/slave owner. Really insulting to Dahl imo.
Ignore this, don't feed the trolls
Quoted from donkadelic:
Any opinion I don't like = troll!
Lol cuz a guy who runs a factory where he murders children along with keeping little people as slaves is totally not that at all.
I'm guessing you're dumb cuz you live in Indiana...
Please don't do this in this thread, this is stupid.
Quoted from zaphX:
I think 1.25 has a bug with the magnet.
When I shoot the Kid shot empty, it doesn't grab with the magnet, instead dropping it immediately back (and even launching it at times with the tap-tap animation!)
When the diverter puts the ball on the magnet, it sticks just fine.
This appears to be new to 1.25, anyone else?
It's fixed, DL 1.26
Two months in, I have to say this machine is brilliant. When you hit your shots it feels so good, because when you miss your shots, you're severely punished. It makes my STTNG blush (that's a huge compliment). As of now, I'm only half way thru figuring out the rule set, that also makes my STTNG blush (another big compliment).
As far as the pop bumper drains, yeah it does, quite often. That's pinball guys. My advice is staying away from the pops. It's a very fun challenge.
Quoted from konghusker:
Those of you that own both Wonka and potc, which one do you like better? I want both, can barely afford one and debating between a huo potc or nib Wonka LE. Thoughts?
Don't discount Dialed In as well. It's every bit as good as those two and you could probably get one at a much cheaper price.
Quoted from TonyScoots:
I have finally joined the Club! I ended up going with the LE, fell in love with the CE but budget wasn’t loving it! Very very happy! I absolutely love this pin. I bought it from Chris Meunier from Kingpin Games! Great guy and very friendly and helpful every step of the way.[quoted image]
Looks right at home next to another Lawlor machine...
Quoted from mtp78:
So I got my le sitting next to potc and DI. Wonka seems really dark with lights off.so much I cant follow the ball that well.
The middle and back of the machine is dim. What are you guys using for extra lighting ? I am not a fan of pin stadiums . Anyone ? Thx
To me, it's all part of the design. Deal with it. You can do with your own machines as you want, but I love the challenge.
