Quoted from SilverballNut:

So curious on SW when you beat Boba Fett, what are your Boba Fett mode scores like? I'm guessing I need to really try and dial in the playfield multiplier while playing since I'm only getting about 50-60 mil and I didn't even crack the default high score.

I crank in a few hundred million on Boba Fett in this short video with the multipliers

Quoted from ChipScott:

Love that light on the front of the cabinet! Speaker lights too. Those are seriously awesome.
On a group note...
It's been a while since any talk of strategy, and mind you I'm not the best player so all the help the better, but I was trying out different characters and paths, and i found one particular character/path that really moved me along on getting planets!!! .....
This game is so addictive.. it really is so hard to walk away from!!!

Absolutly !!

Oh man that's seriously hilarious. Little do they know it wasn't their costume but it this amazing pinball machine sitting inside your house.

Sorry if this has been asked already but planning on getting a premium in the next few day.

Did I read they have two of the original songs in the game?

Has anyone tried fiddling with pinball browser to change anything out?

There are at least three that I've noticed (tough to tell when you're busy trying to keep your eye on the ball). The John Williams music is prevalent enough in the game that you won't feel like you need to load any more. They really work well with the game play (especially the TIE fighter mode!).

Here is a pinball browser thread from a while back - I think it also works with the Premium but I am not sure: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/starwars-pro-sound-replacement-v-089

Agreed - I was a little bummed to read they didn’t have full access to the movie scores, but they make excellent use of what they got and the new music written for the game works very well. I may check out the pinball browser score just for fun someday, but the music on this game is great as is.

True! the only music I don't think fits for some reason is during the end of ball count up

Also I think it would be cool if after video scenes the transition would be like how they cut scenes in the first movies by running a line from top to bottom separating the video if that makes sense?

That would be awesome - they use a couple of different styles of wipes in the movies. Would be cool if those could be integrated into the game!

With the full John William score it sounds better...

In general, the music and sound package is fantastic by default. They did a nice job.

Most of the music Stern did is pretty good, but there's 1 particular tune I don't like. I think it's Hoth 2.

Today i received my NIB premium, production August 2017. i noticed that the goody bag has a post assembly. Anyone knows why this is supplied ?

Not positive, but is that for the weirdos that like to add a bounce-back post between the flippers?

#2070 1 year ago

Maybe that's the post that they don't use on the premium/LE models...the one next to the FORCE targets that is on the pro. Don't know why they'd put it in the bag, though.

No it's not. Steve Ritchie posted that on his FB before. Don't know what it's for either though.

#2072 1 year ago

It’s a mystery post?

#2073 1 year ago

I'm sure it's listed somewhere in the features matrix as an added feature for the premium/LE.

#2074 1 year ago

Goodie bag for my Pro has a post like that in it also.

#2075 1 year ago

Maybe it is just an extra outlane post? Because they are in there so tight when you remove it and it shoots in the air and gets lost....

#2076 1 year ago

Did they release a topper yet??

#2077 1 year ago

Nope, nor the side art.

#2078 1 year ago

Stern ever going to sell accessories for this machine?

Blades, topper, armor, anything?

#2079 1 year ago

I have a few of my own mods / accessories coming out this month. First picture in dim light in my game room, second picture lights on.
The Star destroyer will be offered along with the xwing but the focal point will be the LE Panels. We have the panels available now for Aerosmith, TNA will be game three for this mod.

We are making a few adjustments to the SWLE rails and taking preorders now (no money down).

I messaged stern about the game blades and topper a couple days ago, and just got a response:

“Hi there, yes we do plan on this, the business process behind their release is taking longer than anticipated. Thanks for the message and stay tuned!”

So it seems like Disney/lucas is complicating things once again... but I’m sure we will see them soon.

Stern announced planned code update for SW on the Stern of the Union Address:

Star Wars – The team has outlined a path to 1.0 final code with the hopes of release early December. In addition to bug fixes, score balancing and additional speech, here’s a sneak peek at some of the content we have planned:
Escape from Hoth, Escape from Tatooine, Battle above Endor will get polish and rule enhancements with some cool added effects
Depending on which character you select, the heroes will receive additional perks with Leia’s bonus increasing all scoring in the 4th missions, Han’s bonus increasing the timer to last longer during the Escape from Boba Fett mode and Luke’s bonus adding a higher scoring opportunity in the Light Saber Duel mode.

Oh, sorry didn't mean to post that pic, but screw it, I'll leave it there anyways. My Star Wars Pro next to his older brother, Atari Star Wars.

I'm glad you posted it! What a great game!

In this era of multicades and emulators and consoles, that is one of the few arcade originals I'd love to have.

Thanks. Yeah it’s the one arcade game in the game room I’ll never get rid of. You just can’t duplicate the feel of that that yoke controller. Plus... it’s Star Wars. LOL

Here's a quick question for folks, maybe just pro owners (or premium/LE). On code 0.93 I've noticed when I start a new game and when I shoot the left ramp before I have qualified Endor, the ball returning and hitting the switch on the left inlane triggers no sound in the game, even though it lights up the insert properly. Once i start any other mode, or whatever it seems to trigger a sound normally with the left ramp shot returning to the inlane and hitting that switch. also, If i have the ball go through the left inlane without doing the left ramp shot first, it triggers the sound correctly in the same scenario where Endor is not yet qualified. Just wondering if anybody else has noticed this, or something flooky is happening with my game. I've tested the switch, its all working correctly, so no issues there. also played with the glass off a bit and I convinced this is just a small code issue. Its not a game breaking issue, but just kind of caught my attention when i was expecting a sound to trigger.

Edit: I just tracked down a few videos on YouTube that had gameplay and saw the same behaviour, so I know this is not a problem with the game, but something in the code for whatever reason. Non Issue really. Just an observation.

I’m a fan of apron lights on my Stern machines, and after seeing how the GI lights operated I thought this would be cool.

A037AD66-461C-4531-BC9C-B801B26F487B (resized).jpeg

I put the white behind the white GI, blue behind the blue (and of course the red in the center), and connected them to the associated color GI. This way even the apron lights do the same light show as the GI. I like it

You can’t really tell it from the video, but the strip colors do dim with the GI.

Looks good jdpilot. Can you post some pics or video from the player's perspective?

#2091 1 year ago

Absolutely. I’m out at the moment but will do that when I get home this weekend.

Does anyone know what jedi rank does, besides being a requirement that you need for the wizard mode?

Rob

After each increase in rank the jedi targets increase in value. Once you become a jedi master each target it worth quite-a-bit...but I'm blanking on how much (2.5 million?)

Congrats! Love the MM, LOTR and SW combo.

And stay here for SW info. Don't even bother getting into other threads that mention the pin or Stern in general for that matter. A lot of folks think complaining means you love pinball. I don't believe that.

SW is different and super fun. I can't stop playing it like all my other friends who own it. Love it!

You are in a safe place.

Needed some Apron Cards for my new Premium, so I played around some and came up with these. Thought some of y'all might want to use them as well...
