Quoted from Eskaybee:

Has anyone made this adjustment with success? If so do they want to share their secrets for adjustment? Mine seems flush but maybe not? I dunno...

Honestly I am having the same issue quite frequently. My post is as flush as it gets, but the issue persists. I'd also like to understand how flushness translates into quicker rising of the post...

Have you cleaned your optos / checked them in switch test?

For this I put a tiny amount of lube (I think lithium grease) to the two hinges of the Death Star. No problems since.

Thanks Kermit. I am going to try that now.

Cool. Never use something like WD-40 on anything pinball related.

There are thumb screws to adjust the closure point of the DS (at least I think there are two, maybe just one, been a while since I messed with it) that should help you out with that. Check the manual for location, thumb screw(s) won’t leap out at you when viewed from above.

The thumb screws are under the playfield?

Nope, above the playfield but just under the DS itself, so not easily visible from above. Should be pictured in the manual.

Thank you. I never knew that. Mine stays just a teeny bit open and it has never bothered me enough to mess with it, but now I feel like I have to

#5211 13 days ago

Ok So I fixed the problem. I took the playfield out and there is a Y shaped bracket that connects to the Coil Rod. Coil activates and both sides of the DS open. Both brackets tightened with a Hex Screw. My issue no one at stern tightened one of the Y brackets. That along with the out gate not opening (It was too tight)

Now I put everything back and I have a Node Board 9 & 11 Failure (11 is on the Back Panel) One of the Ethernet cables broke off.

I finally did it! First time to Jedi MB and I defeated the Emporer! I really never thought I would get there - what an epic game. Missed out on destroying the main Death Star though. I was doing great with the multiplier the whole game.

Great score, well done! Which character did you select first and then change to after defeating the Emperor?

Quoted from Hoochoo:

Thanks Hoochoo! I started as Han Solo and focused on Escape from Boba Fett then switched to Princess Leia after defeating the Emperor. It was strange just starting over from the beginning after completing the game - kinda felt ripped off. But I suppose there is not much else you could do. My kids were watching while I was fighting the Emperor - that was a sweet mode!

Every month I give my kids incentive to play pinball - like $10 for anyone that can get a GC score. I think my money is safe now in SW

#5218 13 days ago

3 ball or 10 ball?

#5219 13 days ago
Quoted from D-Gottlieb:

3 ball or 10 ball?

3 ball - extra balls default except for special which I don't think I ever got in SW. But I do have my outlanes on the bottom peg.

Same on my game as well, otherwise the outlanes are just brutal.

#5228 11 days ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

It could be good thing if Stern had been trying to opt for a cheaper / clean looking plastic topper. Disney could say "no it needs to metal", "the lens on R2 needs to be rounded, not flat", "R2 needs to look more weathered as that's the way he looks in Episodes 4-6, not new in Episodes 1-3". Stuff like that.

Doubtful. Lucasfilm has no problem licensing out cheap products.

It's more likely Stern and Ritchie were trying to do something unique with the topper, and it was too un-conventional for Lucasfilm.

Yeah, for real... I've seen bags of oranges with Star Wars licensing before, they don't give a shit lol.

A tasty, aromatic topper at an affordable price.

orange you glad

Though it seems to have caused a bit of an internet uproar, so maybe Disney is compensating by refusing to approve pinball accoutrement.

Hi guys ! So In hyper loop mb is there a way to rengage the hyperloop again. Or is it done. Thx

No hyperloop on pro but you can repair the hyperdrive so to speak and reinitiate the ball saver and ball feeding sequence. I believe once the initial feeding sequence is over, all shots light for what appears to be hurry up jackpots. Collect all those or a certain number of those and it’ll light the DS shot to start feeding again. Don’t know if these rules are the same on the LE/PREM or not though.

Anyone have a straight up reboot during a game? had a weird one with the hyperspace look running (premium)

Yes. Do you have a shaker?

EDIT: Oh sorry, I was thikning of slam tilt not reboot.

Quoted from cocomonkeh:

Mine wasn’t rebooting, but kept tilting last night. At first I thought it was my shaker (never had a problem in the past). It was almost every ball. Then realized my wife had put the manual (which I had out), on top of the coin box. The manual shifted and was causing the tilt bob to trigger a tilt at the slightest movement. I have 50 people coming over this weekend...glad it was an easy fix! If yours keeps rebooting, try reinstalling the code.

#5238 10 days ago

I have 2 sets of the Stern Star Wars pinblades, if anyone was looking to buy just 1 set instead of all 3 from Stern.

#5239 9 days ago

Hey guys I posted earlier about my LE just draining like crazy especially on the right. I tried adjusting those posts but I got scared I would scratch the playfield..they are hard to get at! Is there just like a bigger rubber thingy I can put on the top so it doesnt drain as much?

#5240 9 days ago
Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Uhm... No they're not. Rate the Mayfield and loosen the nut on the underside. Gently tap them out from below. Re insert into the lower hole, replace but, tighten, done.

The tricky part is that the clear coat might have run into and narrowed the lower hole. Use a wood drill with your hand (not a machine) and gently rotate it and remove the excess clear. It takes patience that's all. No force.

Same issue for mine that I took delivery of last week. I had to trim the death star bit on the back side, it was hitting, so i trimmed a bit with the exacto. Then for me, it was actually the mechanism by the coil, i loosened the 2 set screws on the shafts, and the death star close up just fine, so i had to attach things and realign and it works perfect now. I had posted a pic in the LE Issues/problems thread.

I also had to adjust the mystery hole, haha, never gets old... now i'm hitting left flipper 99% of the time instead of STDM. My ball gate on the right outlane was too tight and wouldn't move either, so just loosened that and the gate works great now.

All in all, relatively minor issues overall.

Really enjoying the game, first game i've bought without playing, but it's been a blast so far. Sold my AFMr and this was a very good replacement and I think a better game.

Get both.

#5247 9 days ago

Yes, there is only one right answer: Get both! I have both now in my collection and I am very happy with both. They play very unique and so I have a very good mix of games. I realy can‘t say that I would prefer one of my games over an other.

Nice line-up you have.

#5249 8 days ago

Here's a little exercise I'd like everyone to try with your game if you are able. Make sure you are in a generally quiet room. Now start your game (don't plunge yet) and listen closely to the crisp and clean sound coming from the backbox speakers. Now stick your head down under the cabinet and listen to that same sound from the cabinet speaker. If you haven't noticed a difference yet, reach up and hit the lock bar button to launch the ball and listen to the call outs. Notice any problems?
