Quoted from Kawydud:

Marco seems to have stock

Well I'll be danged. This is the listing I found. It says they're $70 and sold out!

Thank you!

Thank you!

That listing is for the entire flipper assembly, not just the base plate.

Just got my Star Wars on Sunday. Very nice very clean. I'm still going to shop it out, wax it replace bands and so on. Need to replace a couple flashers to LED. My question is: I see that I have 3-4 clear plastic posts, should they all be Metal Standoffs?

Thank You In Advance,
Pete

Quoted from robertg130:

Hi guys I’m looking the location of this plastic?
Thanks
[quoted image]

Actually it does get used, mine is under "the force" plastic with spacers to elevate the force plastic from the scoop. I also have foam under the plastic to protect it. sorry I don't have a better pic

I thought I read somewhere in this thread that jabba laughs after he says "pinball". he doesn't do that on my machine. What do I need to fix?

What game and sound roms do you have running ?

Yeah my brothers original ROM does that when you hit the start with no credits. Once he swapped out the soundboard with Pinsound it went away. Would be real nice to get that sound clip online so I can add it back

Quoted from ChadH:

To clarify... some of the different varieties of light shows played at various game play moments will have to be sacrificed to make space for Speeder Mode. But whenever a playfield light show plays in the game during those moments, one will still play... but it would have to be one of the remaining 6-8 light shows.

Yes. That will be addressed also for sure! Back when I made the code mod for Star Wars, I didn't understand how that worked but I've since learned so much more from working on the other Data East games.
In fact, let me know if there's any additional tweaks you guys would like to see from v.1.07.

Checkin in on the v.1.08

As mentioned, would like to see a freeze triggered by the lane switches in addition to the Outhole switch triggering

Hi guys, I'm a proud new owner of a Data East Star Wars Pin! It's my first machine and I've had it about a month. I've been going through it and modding a few things during that time. I'm a huge Star Wars fan and collector so my wife rented this machine for fathers day. She figured if she rented a pinball machine it would go back and she wouldn't have another Star Wars item in the house. Oops. Since I've had it I've cleaned and waxed the playfield, replaced the rubbers, rebuilt and modded the pop bumpers to the Williams Bally style, put in new stand up targets, added the side blades, and replaced the generic flippers with Data East among other things. It came with pinsound and an xpin power board and I added an led ocd board as well as a rottendog mpu. I'm working on getting the Pinball hu hu hu added back in.

Get a ColorDMD!

#3663 2 days ago

A colorDMD is definitely on the agenda, as well as some HD glass.

#3664 2 days ago

You could get the Chad H. rom upgrade and get the sound roms at the same time. That might fix your problem and make the game better at the same time.

#3665 2 days ago

I’ve got the 1.07 rom. Is there another rom I’d need to get Jabba laughing back? The pin we rented had the laugh but it was 1.04 and didn’t have pinsound. I figured losing it had something to do with the pinsound.

#3666 2 days ago

Oh, if you have pinsound - get the shaker. I did the programming for SWDE and it REALLY enhances the gameplay.

#3667 2 days ago

1.07 is Chad's latest so you're good there.

Sound ROMs are irrelevant if you've got a PinSound. I love my pinsound, and have the pinsound shaker, which is great as well. Haven't had a chance to see if that sound is in the original orchestration. I'll pull the glass in a bit and make the required shots.

DEFINITELY get a ColorDMD! I'd go with the LED version, I had to do a bit of work to fit the LCD version in mine.

Where'd you get the sideblades from?

#3668 2 days ago

I got the side blades from ministryofpinball.com. They’re the only ones I found that really matched the art and theme.

Quoted from Jackaltr:

Any issues with shipping? How long did it take?

My PinSound seems to only have the “pinball” sound without the laugh. It laughed with the original sound card so I’m assuming that sound didn’t get pulled from the ROM correctly. I’ll dig through the files more to see if it’s somewhere else but I assume it’s a simple swap.

#3671 1 day ago

Seems like shipping took two or three weeks. I ordered them as soon as I decided to buy the pin but before I picked it up. I later ordered the clear plastic that goes behind Jabba’s bounty and it only took a week.

I have those same blades, just haven't gotten around to installing them. They look good!

Same here...

Ordered the sideblades. Lets hope I can install them and not scratch them up!!!

I just ordered a set as well! lol.

Water/soap method works great when installing. Another set of hands makes install easy.

Anyone make the brite-caps work with DESW? I can’t remember if they don’t work with the deeper top.

#3677 9 hours ago

I don’t imagine you’d have a problem with the BriteCaps Classics. You may have issues with the BriteCaps Evo’s without doing a Williams/Bally style bumper mod. That’s what I did on mine and I love how it turned out. The Evo’s add about 5mm which helps bring the Williams/Bally lenses back up to the appropriate height. No lense rattle and the BriteCaps look awesome.I have the center lamps on them set to be reactive.

Yes! That’s what I want. Those are the ones without the wires, correct? I have a set with the wire but the pop action always breaks the solder eventually. Those look great. Can you tell me how to do that mod?

#3679 6 hours ago

Yes they're wire free.

The DE bumper cap is attached directly to the ring and rod assembly by 2 hex spacers. You remove the hex spacers and replace them with a couple 6-32 nylock nuts. The new williams/bally caps screw into the bumper body witch already has the holes to mount them and the BriteCaps Evo's come with the correct length screws to attach them. I save a little money on the caps by buying them as a set for the game RADICAL on marco. It'll be much easier if you unbolt the rods from the metal yoke on the underside of the assembly and remove the rods and ring from the game. If you want to change your bumper body or skirt you'll have to do some soldering in some tight spaces underneath as you have to remove the light socket from inside the bumper body.

I recorded the Pinball Hu Hu Hu off the website above and made it into a WAV file for PinSound

It goes here 3720640276-pinball which is in the Voice folder
