The one you played must have issues ... my ball almost never gets stuck behind the ramp and the hyper loop works great .

Quoted from chucksmith:

I read on the forums here that many people believe .92 is causing an issue with the fork so they downgraded back to .89

Can we downgrade ? And if so where can I get it ? The code is pulled it’s suspected .

#7317 4 months ago
Quoted from chucksmith:

Yes, you can downgrade.
Download the old software by editing the link from the current software.
Stern does not remove them from the server, they just update the link.

Cool

I will chime in, when Star Wars was first announced I thought man this looks lame was very disappointed. Fast forward I go to a cool barcade in Raleigh. Side note its called boxcar arcade awesome place they have every new LE, JPP and Stern. Anyhow first game I play is SW LE because its new wanted to give it a shot, I play a game or two and I think meh not that great. Play some of the other new games including Dialed In and I think man DI is a much better game. Go back the next day make my way through the games and play a little on each, all the sudden I keep going back to Star Wars its just the most fun game there. I get back in town and go to a friends house who has one, he tells me how much fun he is having. Now he has every new stern as well, guess what I played the most! So I decide I want one, figure I will get a pro just not enough extra at the premium/le level. I play a pro, granted it had a sound issue at the time but something was missing, I play my friends LE again and let me tell you that Hyper Ramp shot is very satisfying. So I ended up getting my own, went with the prem/LE and dont regret it tons of fun. Also .92 huge improvement, they fixed a lot of issues with the hyper ramp and the new modes are great. Whats not great is that code seems to be breaking some ramps so now I am not playin and going through withdrawal.

So look knock it if you want everyone likes different types of games, but it is not severely mechanically flawed and its is a very fun game with great code. I clearly didn't jump on the bandwagon early I took my time and then decided I wanted the game, it wasn't even on my radar. I can't think of any recent game that didn't have a quirk or two. Aerosmith has issues with the ball lock, GB which I love has plenty of clunkiness in the design etc...

Quoted from mittens:

My premium just arrived on the weekend and I'm loving it (even with .89 code ) Had a few neighbours over last night and it was well received by everyone. The hyper loop is impressive but the entire package is great. Lights, sound, video and missions. Certainly no buyer remorse!

Congrats DO NOT update to .92! That said when .93 comes out or whatever you will LOVE IT big improvement.

@matts Yes you are an enabler!

#7347 4 months ago

What mechanical issues are there anyhow?

#7349 4 months ago
Quoted from fosaisu:

Some Premium/LE ramps have malfunctioned under the newest code. Don’t think there’s anything wrong with the Pros.

More of a software issue then Let’s hope.

Quoted from FourFlippers:

Any news on a code drop to fix the Fork Ramp Controller Board bricking issue?

They told me “soon”
Whatever that means

#7361 4 months ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

You can, but not when the ball is resting. You can absolutely do it if the ball is moving from right to left towards the left flipper...if the angle is just right you can backhand it up there. I've done it a few times. And what swinging gate are you talking about that would prevent that?

I can backhand mine from the catch, its not easy but its pretty doable and I am average at best.

Stern would need to prove you hacked it ... just swap the SD card
