Looking to add side art or mirrors to my machine. Before I go ordering, I was wondering if someone who bought the Stern Side art blades would be willing to sell a pair of their extras. PM me if you have any you want to sell.

There is a set in the market place.

I bought mirror blades at Allentown, got home all excited to put them in SW, and Bam.....not enough clearance for them

#4454 1 year ago

What do you mean? I have them in mine

#4455 1 year ago
Quoted from finnflash:

I can only barely fit one side in, and have zero clearance to put the other in. I imagine each cab is slightly different, but mine is too tight. So disappointed.

#4456 1 year ago

Wow that sucks.

#4457 1 year ago

My mirrors fit fine. Slide the PF all the way over to one side, install, repeat.

Where is this card available? Sounds cool.

Currently I have 10 reservations for the laser engraved metal instruction card. Need 20 to make it happen.

That sucks. Mine came from cointaker. Fit perfectly

#4461 1 year ago

I noticed early on that I had a really hard time of backhanding the right ramp off of a cradle/catch position; in fact it was next to impossible. But I was sure that I've seen videos of people like Deadflip and others easily backhanding the right ramp, so I looked into it further and noticed that my right flipper was aligned below the guide hole.

I've read that it can sometimes come from the factory like that so as to make it slightly easier to hit things on the left side of the playfield, in our game it would be the FORCE targets and left orbit. But there really isn't a huge need to make the targets easier to hit, they go down so easily with all the multiballs and mini-wizard modes and the left orbit isn't that hard to backhand if the left flipper is correctly aligned which for me it is, so no trouble there. So I went ahead and loosened the 'set screw allen head' on the right flipper using a hand drill with an allen head tip and realigned the flipper pointing it to guide hole.

Since the change, it's been super easy to backhand the right ramp, just as it was meant to be. It might look like a minor adjustment but it has made a big difference.

If anyone can't backhand the left orbit or the right ramp off of a cradle position you might want to realign your flippers but first check to see if they are out of alignment.

Yeah, I got mine from Cointaker also. There is no room to slide the playfield over after the first side was in.

Hmm, that stinks. I was able to do it on my Pro no problem. You're the only person that I've seen have this issue, maybe go back and be doubly, triply, extraly sure?

#4464 1 year ago

My LOTR is that way, no way for a mirror glad to fit, just too tight......

Yeah, believe me, I tried, I really like the look on this game .

#4466 1 year ago

I will say this. Putting mirrors on SW was definitely a tighter fit than on my TWD. On TWD I’ve got felt on the sides of the playfield also. No room for felt on my SW for sure.

#4467 1 year ago

My cabinet is so tight it would probably even destroy art blades.

#4468 1 year ago

Finally got my hands on some side blades that match the world under the glass and look good!

Exactly.... I took the photos down as I don’t want to create issues for the seller. They are posted in another thread from another pinsider as well.

New code is out: 1.0.3

http://www.sternpinball.com/games/star/pro

PRO V1.03 - May 8, 2018
========================
NOTE - If you are seeing the ball bounce out of the inner loop after shooting
the hoth / video mode shot, please make sure your center post in the back

inconsistent or poorly gapped

Fixed:
- During the last phase of ESCAPE FROM HOTH the small screen was showing the
wrong background.
- Tie Fighter Multiball Jackpot sounds were not bringing the music back
correctly.
- Fixed the Hyperspace Hurry up tune. It will no longer be quiet when it
loops.
- Fixed Holotext sounds. Sometimes they were not playing correctly.
- Fixed a couple of misspelled words in the display.
- Points were not being awarded correctly in Hyperspace Multiball.
- LIGHT VIDEO MODE is no longer offered on CHOOSE YOUR PATH if it is already

their coil numbers corrected.
- LIGHTSABER DUEL now only requires defeating Vader once per JEDI MULTIBALL
play thru. Once completed it will not be started again until the player
completes Jedi Multiball.
- Stopped the timer sound effects on the FORCE targets during the four
mini-wizard multiballs (ESCAPE FROM HOTH, DESTROY THE DEATHSTAR, ESCAPE FROM
TATOOINE and BATTLE ABOVE ENDOR) after ADD-A-BALL is awarded.
- If VIDEO MODE is started while HOTH and HOTH I are lit, we now spot HOTH I
as being complete, and increase the VIDEO MODE LEVEL before play begins.

modes like LIGHTSABER DUEL, HYPERSPACE HURRYUP, HYPERSPACE MULTIBALL and
others.
- Improved ball search to use all the devices.

interval time from 5 to 60 minutes. Or the adjustment can turn it off during
the attract mode.

- LIGHTSABER DUEL now only requires defeating Vader once per JEDI MULTIBALL

completes Jedi Multiball.

I think that means you can't replay Lightsaber duel until you beat the wizard mode? Cool if so!

- If VIDEO MODE is started while HOTH and HOTH I are lit, we now spot HOTH I as being complete, and increase the VIDEO MODE LEVEL before play begins.

Nerfed the Han tournament strategy a bit...

- The ball is now held during the DESTROY THE DEATH STAR, ESCAPE FROM HOTH, BATTLE OVER ENDOR, and ESCAPE FROM TATOOINE final fanfares.

Nice

What the hell is with the continuous “tweaks” to a non-existent topper?

#4479 1 year ago

Great polish update for an incredible game Thank you Stern.

Also, this line proves that the R2D2 topper is coming!

Seems they're trying to keep the code up to date with the topper as they develop it? No reason to go to extra work to withhold that code from the updates. And if the topper does finally come out no need to push out a new code update

#4488 1 year ago

I have to laugh about the code coming out today, it must be because I had a killer game scoring 1.8 billion this afternoon, lol! Oh well, I'll still take it.

Where is the damn topper, reading this makes me more excited for the damn thing!

#4489 1 year ago

Has anyone else installed the white LED side panels on their LE armor? Looks like a pretty cool mod but it is a rather permanent (can still be reversed, just a PIA) modification.

#4492 1 year ago

Noticed two options in the game settings I hadn't seen before. One to not stop timers when cradled, which is also nice to let you time out Lightsaber Duel if you don't want to play it, and one to adjust the length of the video mode, which is also nice if you don't like it or want to make it less valuable for tournaments

#4493 1 year ago

This is a great update. So far the hyperloop seems to behave better also. No catapults yet.

#4494 1 year ago

One thing is missing. Midnight madness.

#4495 1 year ago
Quoted from zacaj:

one to adjust the length of the video mode,

It would still be nice to be able to do away with the video mode(s) completely or at least be able choose points or some random award in its place. I've never been a fan of video modes as a regular mode in a pinball machine. I'd much prefer it be hidden or random; more like an Easter egg that you see maybe once in 50 games.

#4496 1 year ago

Funny how the diverter control timing is not mentioned. We will see how long it takes before a ball winds up in the shooter lane.

#4497 1 year ago

Downloaded onto a memory stick.......and a full on lightning storm. I'm too chicken to turn the game on and let it update

#4498 1 year ago

#4499 1 year ago

Finally! Blew up the whole Death Star (R2D2). Man that was fun! Messed up on 3rd ball and ended with a 2 billion point game. What a rush!!

I have owned this machine almost 2 months and no Death Star yet.
