My outlane gate makes a loud buzz noise at hold open, so trying to diagnose and fix. Anyone else have this issue? It functions fine, and understand there are numerous posts on getting it to work properly. I'm about half way through this thread and tried some searching already.

It's a mini-coil magnet that pulls in the bracket, so no plunger/coil stop to file/smooth. Happy to take out, etc. but not sure what good that is going to do. I thought about seperating coild and bracket to isolate source. Also, the coil test in the service menu is just gate open then close, so don't hear the noise. It's only at hold open in game play, so have to trigger the hold open during play to troubleshoot. Unless there is another way to test?

Quoted from Thunderbird:

This is what is baffling about the top 100 and shows how meaningless it really has become. Why are the 25 year old games rated higher than modern games??? As good as they were, you’re right, they don’t hold a candle to modern day code, mechs, electronics, build quality, HD LCD immersive game play, HD sound, etc. The old games just don’t compare to SW, Bat66 or JP for example.
....

Same dumb logic over and over.

Quoted from Thunderbird:

they don’t hold a candle to modern day.... build quality....

Talk aboot baffling.

#7953 62 days ago

I love both older and new pins. I’m so glad CGC is remaking older pins and so many new pins are being made as well. Not that long ago we had maybe 3 new games a year and they were like CSI or WoF etc.

Does anyone happen to have a photo of the top of the Tie Fighter assembly on the pro version? Specifically, I’m hoping to obtain a photo of the top of the flat black plastic right behind the Tie Fighter.

I have a Maiden Pro and have been giving serious consideration of switching it out for a Star Wars Premium. Let us know how your switch goes!

—>>> SHOW off you mods <<<—-
Just purchased the Comic Art Premium and would love to see how others have moded their games ... let see some pics!
Thx in advance!!!

The best mod for this game is a custom soundtrack from pinballmix. The modes are so much better with the original Williams score. Having Duel of the Fates play during Lightsaber Duel is rad.

#7959 61 days ago

Talked to Chas, he said not to worry about the switch warnings. Especially since I had issues for so long and didn’t play it much. Good news is she plays perfect and now all the codes are cleared. Got most of my mods installed today. A few left to go.

nice where can I find this revision?

#7964 61 days ago

There is a free John Williams Remix around that I used to have. I know a few users here have it also. No need to pay pinballmix for this.

I have a different thread
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/star-wars-sound-mods-code-version105
where I started keeping track of sound file locations to create your own custom mix relatively easily, using pinball browser.

I haven’t updated it in a few days but so far I’ve identified where most of the key scene related music is.

That being said, if you don’t have the time or are not technically inclined at all, it is nice that pinballmix offers the service he does.

#7966 60 days ago

Man I am having a lot of fun with this pin now that everything is working and she’s all dialed in. Just a few more mods to add then I will post pics.

#7967 60 days ago

Today was a great day ... got my Star Wars Premium NIB ... As much as I Loved Maiden Premium , this game is so much better in my opinion... With all the characters to play and missions , it definitely has variety compared to Maiden.

Congrats! I have both maiden and SW (pros), and cant decide which I like better. SW does have more to offer code wise, I love its ruleset; and would probably give it the edge for that reason. Lastability in a small collection.

Edit: question, any reason you went with the regular premium over the comic?

#7970 60 days ago

Yesterday I picked up my first pinball ever and got a Star Wars Pro! I've been having tons of fun with it, but it does have some issues I'm hoping to address --

a) The game will sometimes put 2 balls into the trough. I can hear the solenoid fire, but nothing comes out, and then it fires a second time and 2 balls slowly kinda spill out. I wanted to increase the trough eject speed, but it looks like it's already set to maximum.

b) The pop bumpers really bang. I want to turn them down but I can't find anywhere in the menus to do so. Is this adjustable?

c) Any other common setup tips/considerations for this game?

Thanks!!

For me it went SW>IDMN>JP

#7972 60 days ago

I’m buying SW premium. But it’s almost a 4 way toss up with.

DP
Maiden
JP
SW

I possessed a Maiden pro 4 months while my buddy had my Tron. Maiden is a great game layout code. This would be my choice if not for SW. way more shots with 4 flippers.

I’ve played a ton of DP love the humor and shots, another great game. Love the Katana ramp and snikt shot.

JP played a good bit but too early for me to form an opinion. Love a game with 4 ramps.

SW initial reaction was meh but that was before I understood the multipliers and other rules. Now I think it’s my best choice and the comic art (for me) was the cherry on top of a great game.

#7973 60 days ago

I'm still enjoying my Premium. This is evidenced by my recently selling a gorgeous Metallica Premium and keeping the SW. I got both games at about the same time and loved both to death. SW just has more staying power and in the end I played it way more.

#7974 60 days ago

Found some EL tape on eBay that is just about the right width and is not pink when you turn it off. What do you think?

I prefer my DP over SW, but it’s close. DP is just over all a fun game. SW is more of a players strategy serious game. So for me, DP > SW > IMDN. (Haven’t experienced JP yet).

close for me as well, love both themes but SW just has to be better for me was 12 years old when first SW came out. Also love both rules and the music and graphics on DP are top notch but I don't have any game with multipliers anything like SW. Love the movie clips on SW.

I was never into comics and IMO the new comic art made it look cheesy

Quoted from HC2016:

Well said, I don't get the new comic theme. Yes the artwork isn't the greatest quality, but I'm a big fan of the movie franchise, not comics, so i want the pin to represent the movie likeness.

#7980 60 days ago

My final decision is SW premium or MM remake.

I am going to play my top choices tomorrow and will make my decision immediately, I want to see how the Death Star, hyper loop ramp feels.

I have AFM LE, aware it plays a lot like MM (rules, similar shots) so that's one point against it.

You’ll get Star Wars lol

#7982 60 days ago

Only thing I don’t like is the video game sounds and the high score entry, both seem disconnected from the overall package.

#7983 59 days ago
Quoted from HC2016:

Most likely, I've been playing MM for the last 4-5 years trying to convince myself to get one, I love AFM much more than I was expecting so was thinking to get another CGC pin but for some reason MM has not grabbed me. I've played MM on and off for the last 14 years whenever I get the chance and never fell for it.

Once I figured out the multiplier system on SW it has been on the top of my list and I have been looking at others kicking tires just to make sure. I was about to order SW a few weeks ago but wanted to play the premium a few more times to confirm.

PS we just watched SW episode IV last night and it holds up big time.

#7984 59 days ago

Main thing holding me back was the comic art were I prefer the pro cabinet but prefer the premium game.

I don't hate the premium cabinet but the pro cabinet would be my dream.

#7985 59 days ago

I have to say , I’ve played Star Wars last year at a local bar ... it was a drain monster , got so discouraged I purchased the Maiden .. Especially after reading all the negative comments and all the tweeks you have to do to make the game more enjoyable.. but my SW premium has a date of 2019 and I have no issues whatsoever with cheap drains and all ... Maybe Stern addressed these issues ? Not sure but I’m very happy with the outcome

don't forget to update you collection, did you keep the Maiden?

My SW premium pop bumpers are the loudest pop bumpers of all of my pins. Normal. Just the way this pin was designed.

#7989 59 days ago

Got my premium all moded! Decided to change colored plastic protectors to clear because it effects the blue and red lighting modes which I don’t like and I have spotlight radar dome replacements coming but everything else is in. Didn’t like the premium translite so switched it out for a pro. Put Pinstadium Omegas in also and the 2Niro lightsaber very cool!

Quoted from rai:

Not sure how much Premium/LE you've played relative to the pro...but be forewarned that the Death Star shot is truly harder on the Premium. You can backhand it from left flipper if ramp is down, but even that is more difficult than on pro. You cannot backhand at all with ramp up, unless the ball is coming down on the flipper & you hit it just right. And it is also harder from the right flipper. (Source of reference - I had a SW Pro for 4 months, upgraded to an LE, and have now played the LE for almost 3 months.)

Quoted from rai:

SW just has to be better for me was 12 years old when first SW came out. Also love both rules and the music and graphics on DP are top notch but I don't have any game with multipliers anything like SW. Love the movie clips on SW.

Yeah, me too. I was 11 in summer of 1977. Love the movie quotes and scenes. I also like the original movie art better than the comic art.

You can backhand it from left flipper if ramp is down, but even that is more difficult than on pro. You cannot backhand at all with ramp up, unless the ball is coming down on the flipper &amp; you hit it just right.

I’ve found that if you raise/adjust the left flipper up 2 degrees or approximately two dots from the dot on the table, it can be backhanded with the ramp up. Makes a big difference and instead of a dangerous difficult shot from the right flipper, it is made easier from the safe left flipper backhanded.

Also , the menu adjustment of the left flipper should be set to hard. I can make it all day long with the fork ramp up about 70% of the time.

#7993 59 days ago

I have been able to backhand the Death Star with a game that is side to side level and at 6.5 pitch. No flipper adjustments required.

Aren't the PinWorlds mods lit? It looks like the Pinstadium lighting drowns out that effect.

Quoted from Agent_Hero:

It does. That’s why I have the pinstadiums dialed down to 35 percent. Looks great. Only looked too bright for twenty minutes because I was use to it so dark, then it evens out and everything looks great. You can see all the lights on the mods well. I actually put electrical tape over the Pinstadium lights that were directly over the lightsaber because you could hardly see it. Pictures never show the true look but everything looks great just like it is now.

#7996 59 days ago

Is it possible to adjust flipper power, autolaunch power, pops power, etc... ?

The only ones I'm seeing is trough eject and scoop eject. Am I missing something?

Also, what does COIL_PULSE_POWER (#43) do? Is there only one setting for all of the solenoids across the game?

I suspect the 2nd run of Star Wars comic edition will offer the premium PF + Pro cabinet & a code update.

My hunch is half wishful thinking & half based on historical data.

There's 2x premium Metallica, 2x premium ACDC, 2x premium Munsters, etc.

#7998 59 days ago

Wow GamerRick 's machine looks awesome with those mods!

#7999 59 days ago
Quoted from Jerickso77:

I agree.

Just put a good number of plays on two different SW premium and a MM remake.

I’d say MM is the better pin but I have some pins with similar layouts in my collection.

Decided on SW comic premium. I played pro several times and it shoots great but I’d really missing the hyper loop.
