What type of wire are y'all using to mount mods to the screws/posts? thanks in advance.

#8902 5 months ago

What balls do i need to use on this game? Anything special since the hyperloop uses magnets? I have a tmnt coming as well which has magnets too.

Quoted from Jamwin:

Whatever I've had on hand, including wire hangers. A bit larger gauge than ideal, but has worked fine in the end. I use a large headed short truss screw to fasten to bottom of fighters.

Quoted from mbrave77:

I've been using the same standard, commonly available, balls I use in all of my games and have had no issues.

18 gauge stainless for light stuff. It looks good and is easy to work with.

Hi Guys,
Tom ended up getting a batch in, but for some reason didn’t post it here. Please contact him direct via PM, if you are still interested in purchasing one.
May the force be with you all![quoted image]

I just purchased one from him. Thanks for the heads up!

#8907 5 months ago

Had the game for 3-4 months, got my first Jedi Multiball tonight! Took a mystery extra ball early to get to 6 balls overall and focusing all my multiballs on Jedi Training only.

#8908 5 months ago

I’m noticing groups of LEDS are not working .
No Hoth , no Force drop targets , no destroy the Death Star and many more . Went thru test mode and they’re def out . Could it be LEDS just out or is it a board problem that would need replacing ? Thanks in advance

Reseat the connectors for the boards and go from there.

Post back findings, I went through this when I first got mine, turned out to be a piece of debris in a socket causing a short in addition to a nicked wire behind the flipper plate from the factory

#8912 5 months ago

Happened on my GB once. I unplugged all the node boards and replugged them in, nothing beyond that, and all LED’s worked again.

#8913 5 months ago

Will try all of the above tomorrow , thanks again

#8914 5 months ago

Success! Reached in and pushed on some connectors and all the LEDs came in .

Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

More pimping out of my Star Wars game! Just added interactive undercab lighting, speaker panels, Darth Vader tie fighter, Pin Monk's colored insert gels, and Titan translucent rings.
Star Wars is a game that has surprised me in how much fun it continues to be! I've had my Premium a couple of years now and it's one of my favorites to play in my current collection.

Thought i'd share some of the mods I just installed. This is a tough pin to mod. Not a shortage of SW toys to find but to make them fit and maintain the same scale and theme was challenging.

Oh and btw, thanks to others on this forum, used some of your ideas and insights. discovered that using a glue gun is best way to connect 18 gauge wire into the mods/toys. there is any existing hole in the bottom of the toys that is for the posts that come with them, I filled the hole with hot glue and inserted the wire into it and it holds nicely. one trick is to make sure you put a bend into the wire before inserting into the glue hole so that it doesn't spin once dry.

X-Wing and Falcon definitely need a black acrylic color wash to age them a bit. They look too shiny and new.

So, do you have 2 Falcons on your playfield since you have the premium?

#8920 5 months ago

Just had THE best game (not score wise but playwise) after coming off some major play on JP.

I got Victory Multiball on Hoth, Tatooine, and The Endor Death Star, Blew up the Death Star, got Jedi Master, Beat the LightSaber dual, 175 tie fighters, and 1 shot from Boba fett...

Now here's the crazy part...After I blew up the Endor Death Star, I triggered Hyperspace Multiball during Victory Multiball...Talk about insane...The hyperloop just kept going and going and going, then I put 3 balls in it.. Jackpots all over the place...

Bummer is, I still didn't make it to the emperor with all that complete

Where did you get the shooter lane mod?

#8922 5 months ago
Quoted from finnflash:

Yes, two Falcons but the way the playfield is sectioned, doesn't look bad. They're like different scenes and the Falcon I added is small so doesn't over power the view.

#8923 5 months ago
Quoted from mollyspub:

Came from a set of collectible figures off Amazon. Unfortunately, the rest of the figures are too big to fit, with exception of Boba Fett. I stuck him in the back corner, kind of hidden, but he's my fave so snuck him in the corner. But the Han carbonite fit perfect on the shooter lane.

Thanks ! How did you mount it? Didn't see Boba fett in your pics though.

Looks really cool! I may do the same. Please share details on mounting. (Also looking for your boba fett in the pics)

used double sided mounting tape. put it on the left side of the mod and attached it to the right side of apron, which is metal and will come off easily without damaging anything.

double sided mounting tape i used is: amazon.com link »

hope this helps.

Finally get to “officially” join the club! loving the game and haven’t even updated to latest code. Very low use and only on code 0.93! Exciting times!

Update that code pronto!

#8932 5 months ago

Love all the mods people have done. My only beef is the fact that this game is all about 4-5-6. No other ships belong on the playfield outside the originals.

Play Midnight Madness before you update the code so you can at least experience it. It was removed right after 0.93, I think, and is really missed. xaqery made it sound like it's never coming back, which sucks. MM is one of the best things he does. Munsters, for all it's laundry list of flaws, has probably THE best Midnight Madness mode he's ever done.

Pretty sure 0.93 still had it, but maybe only 0.91 and 0.92 did. At least check. The Star Wars one is good. Experience it before you upgrade.

If you don't have it, you can at least see what it was like here:

Asmuch as it suckstonothave MM. So NOT playbeodreupdating. the early Software versions, had fried some node boards...

Quoted from Sprudeldudel:

Yes, it's a small risk, but given that it came with 0.93 and didn't blow up, I think the risk isn't great.

But on reading back, I think Midnight Madness was gone by 0.93 anyway.

#8936 5 months ago

One of the older code revisions broke the DS ramp.

Quoted from D-Gottlieb:

#8938 5 months ago

Hi,

I have two millennium falcons available. These are the style that Mezel was selling, but no longer has them available. I believe these are the X-wings and are 5" long and 3.75" wide. One is ready to be sold immediately, the other will be available in a few days, just waiting on a part. It includes a custom mount and is lit solid blue with EL wire as shown in pic. These are the only two we will have available in this style so speak now (via PM) if you want it. It will be $99 shipped.

Has anyone put a Stern Stormtrooper shooter rod on their Comic Premium? I’m on the fence and not sure if the color scheme is going to work. If so, can you post a photo. Thanks in advance.

Thanks, that actually might be a better option. I like the sculpt of the Stern one better but the rod coming out of the neck seems odd. Your choice seems to be the better package. Anyone have the Stern one installed for a comparison?

Yeah, I wasn't a fan of the Stern rod looking straight up at the player, so was glad to have found the TG one that looks out from the cabinet instead. I agree that I like the sculpt better on the Stern one, though.

#8944 5 months ago

The Stern shooters are too dominant for me. Here is my solution.

#8945 5 months ago

Im sure its in the thread somewhere but at what degree incline do you find this game plays best? I have the bubble right in the middle but it makes for so much unpredictable side to side action. Anyone go closer to 7?

#8946 5 months ago

Before the rainbow puke squad gets me, I promise the lights are actually blue in the back but the camera turns them purple.

#8947 5 months ago

I saw a comic art version today for the first time, and I am so mad that I bought the original when it came out now. The comic art is so much nicer looking then my plain ass looking pin.
Ok, I'm done bitchin. It's still fun at least.
