Quoted from johnwartjr:

I don't believe Chad is selling them anymore.

Correct. I recommend johnwartjr for your ROM needs.

Quoted from johnwartjr:

If Chad can't help you, I can. I would recommend making a donation to him regardless for his time.

My website is www.pinballcode.com

You will also find the detailed Guide to all the changes in the Star Wars 1.04 update on my website.

How can i tell if my Star Wars has 1 or 2? Thanks

First, when you turn on your game, the very first thing it will display is the version of the Display ROM. What version does it show? It goes quickly.

Then it will show the version of your CPU ROM, again quickly. Note those both down and post them here.

You have the latest Video ROMs. You do not need those. You only need the new CPU ROM.

Nice! So i dont have to worry about having 1 or 2 displays?


Quoted from KornFreak28:

Where does the new rom go in the board? Do you know? Thanks so much!

Quoted from KornFreak28:

So lets say I install it, plug the board back in. Does the game authomatically adapt to the new version? Or am I gonna have to do some sort of steps or change some settings in order to make it work? Thanks

Game will reset to factory defaults. For the most part, all you will have to do is turn on Free Play in the Adjustments (assuming you normally have the game in Free Play mode).

Sorry i just saw your reply. Wow so is that easy huh? So basically, i just carefully lift the old chip out and insert new one in? No soldering or nothing correct? I was thinking i was going to have to take the board out and have the computer place solder the new chip in. Good thing that is not the case!

Taking the board out of the game is about 100 times more difficult than it is to remove the one chip and put the new one in.

No soldering needed. Just take your time removing the old chip and inserting the new one. Read those two links for tips.

Best way to pull a socketed chip? Use the right tool. Pull with even pressure.
