So here's the deal - got a rottendog board for my friends star wars, and the old MPU is gone. He swears now the ramp (next to the death star) used to award more than 1 million per shot but it only giving 1 million per shot regardless of how many times you hit it. It used to say someting like "3 of 5 shots" for a Million and then increase from there but now is not. Is this a setting or a change from the ROM. It appears the game has 1.04 in it from the writing on the MPU Chip.

Is this a rule change or a setting or is he crazy?

Sounds like you have the updated 20th Anniversary ROM by Chad H.

DESW as released in 1992 was a game with great toys, sound and art package hampered by unbalanced rules that made it a one-shot game. Chad released a version that balanced the scoring and put more of an emphasis on tri-ball jackpots for the big points. There's also a lot of other cool additions such as a ball save and other tweaks.

Explanation of changes at Chad's site:

There are a number of threads discussing the new code, and the general consensus is that it improved the game immensely.
