Know JPop sometimes pays us a visit, so thought it was worth asking by name. Of course, I'd be interested in anyone answering these questions.

Got a kit from a friend and am enjoying the game. Had a few questions, though, was hoping you may be able to help?

- What exactly does the Gungan rollover do? It registers in software, but I can find nothing it does in the game? Was it something to be added in later software then scrapped?

- How do you light the Naboo ship?

- Is there any way to increase multipliers other than by awards?

Thanks again, enjoying the game.

I was just abou to ask this question(Gungan rollover) and decided to do a quick search to see if it had been asked before. Bump!

While in normal play, an image of seaweed and bubbles appears on the display
around the place the bumpers are located. During normal play only, getting the
ball to the jet bumpers awards one letter in GUNGAN. Usually you only get one
letter per trip to the bumpers, but if the ball somehow doesn't trip any bumper
for a couple of seconds, the game will assume the ball left and returned and
will award an additional letter. Spelling GUNGAN replaces the seaweed with Jar
Jar Binks, and now hitting the bumpers causes him to feel arbitrary, sourceless
pain and suffering. This is basically Super Jets (though I haven't noticed the
scoring). Furthermore, you'll notice that now the "Star Wars" virtual spinner
over the right ramp has changed appearance. Hitting that ramp now awards
letters in JAR JAR. I don't know what this is for; does anyone know the purpose
for this?

That covers the Gungan question anyway.

Quoted from RDReynolds:

What do you mean "light the naboo ship"? Do you mean the queen's royal ship or the yellow starfighter in the PF?

I'm pretty sure the multipliers are built by hitting all three targets on either the right or left side. One side builds multipliers, the other builds the actual bonus (showing on the naboo starfighter). Haven't figured out which one yet. They really don't seem to affect the game much, as max bonus is like 5 mil?
