Quoted from ShinyNick:

Just got my LE # 75 setup - and played it for the first time - so far so good! The hyperspeed loop is pretty intense...
I wish BM66 had all the audio and video completeness that SW has...

Bout time there were some LE unboxings!
What are your thoughts so far?

Could one of the current owners tell me the diameter of the Death Star. Much appreciated.

#905 2 years ago
Quoted from John1210:

where did you get the x wings?

I bought two of these guys. It's the same set from the MF so they match perfectly and blend the spotlights a little better.

#906 2 years ago

Pro owners can somebody check and see if the info screens are working properly. When i check them holding either flipper and hitting the other flipper to turn forward through the info pages it kicks me out within a page or 2. If i hold a flipper and hit the action button i can go through all of the info pages but in reverse. This happen on last code .87 and now on .89 for me and just want to make sure i dont have a button leaf that needs adjusted or if its a bug in code.

#907 2 years ago

Got about 10 games in on the new code today. Really like how the code is coming along.

Don't think it was in there before, but there is now a progress to Jedi MB screen after each ball that is helpful. Most of the things you need to do have lit inserts, but it was nice to be reminded that one of the reqs is kill 100 tie fighters.

Noticed some more clips and heard some new sounds. Overall still lacking in callouts but it seems like they are on the right track.

Never did get JMB started, but was very close in a couple games. Believe I just needed to finish the Death Star modes. But I certainly don't think JMB is unattenable. I'll get it soon enough.

Glad they left the option to select multiple missions at once on by default.

Score wise, couple stinkers less than 200mil. But most of my scores were around 2b. Set the GC with 3.8b. Scores seemed consistent across characters. Didn't really notice that any one was distinctly more valuable, but I'm not fully versed in the rules yet.

Good stuff Stern. Keep it coming.

Liking that there is no one character that's an obvious choice. Just changes the path you take through the game. Can't wait to play the new code.

#909 2 years ago

Striking a good balance between characters makes it more fun to play them as long they still afford some measure of variety. Otherwise, god forbid, you end up with cities on Kiss (I assuming the new code didn't change that). So far, so good with SW on that front.

From what I could tell if I wanted to play against boba fett easier, choose Han. If I wanted to advance ranks easier choose luke. Didn't see the immediate change in the modes for Leia, and if you want to keep those multipliers on multiple shots, choose R2.

#911 2 years ago

Anybody with a pro getting really loud weird audio pops during extra ball or replay on .89? It sounds like my speaker is about to explode haha. Didn't happen on .87 or .84., presume it is the fake knocker sound... but it no longer sounds like a knocker. I'll try turning it off in the settings and see if that fixed it.

#912 2 years ago

I think Leia increases scores on the 4th missions/banana/hot dog ones.

#914 2 years ago

Lol. Yeah, thats part of the risk reward I find interesting. Do you gamble on having to go through more missions to get to the planet multiball with Leia knowing when you finally get there it'll be a big pay off or do you take Han or R2 on the shorter path but at a lower potential payoff? Choices are great!

Joined the club today, even had it personally delivered by Trent. I had to go to a coaches meeting 2 hours away and was dying to get home. My son and I set it up and played until we realized it was 2:30 AM.........ooops.

My LE hasn't arrived yet so I have one question. Does the cabinet come with protectors for the legs or would I need to buy those separately before delivery of the machine itself.

It's my first nib, so please excuse of this is a stupid question

You're good to go. Sterns have been coming with metal protectors built in for a while now.

#920 2 years ago

Does anyone have a magic number for their right scoop eject power so it doesn't drain SDTM? I know this will probably vary depending on how people have leveled their games, but I think for GB, there was a commonly accepted number for that left scoop kickout that would help with the center drains.

Purely a case by case basis. May need leveling changes or physical changes to the scoop.

#922 2 years ago

Think my scoop is set at 15, seems to deliver to the right flipper cleanly 90% of the time.

#923 2 years ago

Just got the call. My LE is on the truck...half way across the country. But at least it's on its way.

I think ours is set on 30. It delivers it to thee left flipper pretty consistently. But it is case by case thing...you might need to play around with the settings and see what works for your game and you and go from there.

#926 2 years ago

Does anyone know if they are going to code a tutorial into the attract mode?

#927 2 years ago

After making sure mine was level and setting it to 30, it delivers it to the left flipper which is what I like and has basically removed all of the STDMs. I think making sure it is level first is the most important thing and then you can play with the power settings to get it to what you like.

I usually swap out the plastic ones that come on the pins for the metal ones you can get from Marco or other vendors...(there were a couple games that came with metal ones but then they went to making them out of plastic...)
http://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/535-0599-00
The plastic ones to me make the game feel wobbly and unstable. I had 2 games side by side (AC/DC & Metallica) AC/DC I had not yet swapped the plastic ones for the metal ones...and some folks came over to play and commented on how wobbly AC/DC felt and that I needed to check my leg bolts and tighten them up...

#931 2 years ago

Monday LE pick up for me. Let's get these in our gaming areas and play these suckers!

#932 2 years ago

Setting it to 30 seems to be working pretty well. Thanks all! Sidenote: I tried to see what happened if I dialed it all the way down to 10 - couldn't even clear the scoop! Whoops!

I wish they didn't change the lightshow for hyperspace multiball in 0.89. loved the original one. It was hard to spot the ball but that's what made it so great. Anybody else?

Yeah the box was pretty banged up but the worst thing is the topper on AFM was missing........freight company is looking for it but I doubt it will be found.
JJ is on it, I have no worries.

I am confused: I can't get my multipliers higher than x20. It was x40 in the previous code. But they don't mention that change in the read me file. I want my x40 back please !

#940 2 years ago

Gotta get that double scoring going son! It's there, just need to hit the force targets a whole bunch

#941 2 years ago

I'm lovin this pin, that Falcon looks 10x better Lermods. Just had a 5 Billion game, Endor and Death Star going with a Hyperspace Multi then Tie Multi trying to change the Multiplier for maximum points and mashing the button, greatness, Jabba mode needed badly.

#942 2 years ago

Anybody know anything about Road Runner Transportation Systems? They're the carrier for my LE, but I've never worked with them before.

You have the Canadian version. The American version has the Jabba mode.

.89 code they did something that made the Hoth shot get way way more rejects then .87. Really sucks to get reject after reject when last code it read perfectly. i got to say I'm finding bug after bug in the present code.

Quoted from Phbooms:

When you say reject, you mean the ball bouncing back out on the right loop Hoth shot before the post in the top of the loop rises to trap the ball? I get this a lot, the faster the ball is moving the worse it is, seems to need to be a shot that rattles around in the loop a little before it passes the u-turn or has a weird spin or a weaker hit to get it to stick. I feel like if they had moved the double posts down a half inch or so, it probably wouldnt be so bad. I'm not sure what you could even do yourself to soften this shot up a little bit so it doesn't bounce out of there.

On the pro I've been playing, I definitely had more rejects in my last session which was on the new code. Previous sessions on older code seemed to work better. Thought it was just due to the mechanical nature of pins but it's interesting you're experiencing the same thing.

Just a heads-up: Spike 2/Rev. C Shaker motors are back in stock at Pinball Life. I just grabbed one. Now I just need for Stern to get those Premiums rolling.

Definitely a code issue. Last code you could hit the Hoth loop as fast as possible and the single large post would always(95% or better) catch the ball but now it just bounces off the double posts and rejects past the large post before it can stop the ball way to much. This is how 2 or 3 codes ago acted also so whatever they did after .87 code messed it up.

All this code talk is strictly about the pro, right?
