Watching this closely. In on an LE right now. So disappointed in Dwight leaving GBLE the way he did - code is so repetitive and so unfinished iMO. I hope much was learned from that and SW will be something to rival the galaxy.

My thought is that since so much was spent on GB playfield (custom drawn art, moulded toys, etc, etc) they did not have the time/budget to really enhance the code so good enough was good enough. Since SW does not have the spend on playfield or cabinet really hoping they had the budget to complete code and enhance as needed.

Quoted from Butch2099:

I think it was a question, not a list of what's in there

Yes it was clearly a question but when I first read it I was excited to know all those lines were in the game. Likely they are not.

Quoted from waspinat0r:

I'm working on it! You're all right. I just wanted to give my impressions after a bit with the game so far. As I said, I still love the game, I'm just not really into the way the button is used overall and I know that's not changing. Otherwise, it's an amazing shooter with awesome media.

Wow I see you are selling your SW already. This speaks loudly to me as a collector who likes to alsomplay my games a lot. However you are looking for a GB instead and I can tell you that with the linear modes and the lack of variety in things to accomplish it got old for me and I could not handle it any longer. Not sure you are going to get the "adventure" you seek there.

Still to be selling SW so quickly and has the honeymoon phase end after only a few hundred plays- OUCH!

Quoted from Guinnesstime:

You'd love be LOTR. The best journey pin ever.

Yes LOTR is definitely a journey machine. So deep you will likely never finish it (I have only once been one shot away). It follows the movies so closely but is still fast and has great flow (unlike Hobbit). But as deep as the game is to complete it is still very easy for anyone to just pickup and play.

I also had TWD and nothing close the the journey and accomplishment that LOTR offers.

Quoted from T-800:

Lol. LOTR is my holy grail pin and will never leave my collection. With that said, I think I'd hate playing it if was my only pin. You nailed it, it would feel different really quickly if I didnt have some short ball time games like IM or TWD to mix it up a bit.

I also agree with this 100%. It's a game a month for me but also never leaving my collection

Is there a link to a walk through for the newest code anywhere. Getting a SW pro this weekend and anxious to do some reading and prepare to conquer it!

Quoted from PinballCharlie:

I finally did it! First time to Jedi MB and I defeated the Emporer! I really never thought I would get there - what an epic game. Missed out on destroying the main Death Star though. I was doing great with the multiplier the whole game.

Quick question... is there any advantage to completing the Modes’s/multiballs in the order they occur in the movies? I have tried the do this and came close once but then wondered if there was any point. Passing to light another mode and get two going at once is an obvious and great strategy I use often now. Basically can run modes 3 times and get all multiballs lit.

#5374 1 year ago

Been exploring Star Wars mostly on my own along with a few hints here since I got it. However I just had a game and conquered all modes and had 3 balls to finish Boba Fett. I had a chance once and failed but then my last 2 balls nothing was lit and I couldn’t get boba lit. Had to ask is there any way to light him intentionally?

Saturday Morning Pinball Rage!! Got my ass handed to me all night last night. 10 games with maybe 1 multiball. Went to bed angry and woke up this morning and did this!! Lit all 4 mulitballs before getting into them on my 3rd ball.

Finished 3/4 multiball Modes - destroyed just about everything! Got medals on 2/3 victory multiballs.... Emperor kicked my ass

I completed video mode with 40x multiplier and full hyperdrive the entire time and not a single crash (level 2)

Not my highest score but an epic game just the same...Happy Saturday everyone!

Quoted from PinballManiac40:

Someone please post a video with beating the Emperor. I know it will be a long time before I get to that mode.

Here you go! Anyone who doesn’t want to see the Emperor get his ass kicked in 1:30 don’t watch. This could be the quickest I have ever beat him... he didn’t get a shot in on me. Enjoy!!!

Sorry double post

Quoted from Rob_G:

It's weird that the Emperor seems to temporarily disappear after he force attacks you? Bathroom break?

Nice catch ... I didn’t notice that before. Guess my eyes were focused elsewhere. LOL. He went to update the code I think. Haha.

This game is so Epic! Not sure if anyone remembers but I was a harsh critic of SW when it came out. After being in on an LE I gave up my spot. I still haven’t played an LE or even a premium but considering how I can’t stop coming back to try and get further I have come full circle. I get my ass handed to me game after game and then I zone in and have a run like this!! Almost completed 2 characters (R2D2 and Leah)... lost to the Emperor and still kicked it out of the park... 1.7B on bonus with hold bonus and followed up with 2.70 bonus definitely helped... but this was my result. Didn’t even realize I had such a score until the end as my goal was really to try and complete 2 characters only...

Quoted from Spitfiren8:

I played early code when this first came out and wasnt too impressed but still keep kicking around the idea of picking one up...
How long was your game to complete two characters? I had a ST pro for 4 yrs and i finally moved it along cuz it got to be a chore to play, every game seemed the same. Do you see yourself chopping at SW the same way everytime?

Mine is factory settings.. game was about 20 - 25 minutes or so. Picking the right modes together helps get through faster. Also having 2 modes going during multiball makes it quicker to emperor.

Quoted from pinwaz:

Awesome game Pinchamp, pics are great but any chance of a video

Well I did take the video (see a few posts back) of me besting the emperor in 1.5 minutes... not sure if you saw it? Would someone seriously want to see a video of me finishing a complete game to over 10B? I mean I probably could get my daughter to hold the camera for me... she held it for the emperor video. Just can’t imagine someone actually wanting to watch that... although I must admit when I get things going it is pretty exciting!

Quoted from Pinballpal:

Go for it. It would be cool.

Well I will see when I am up to the challenge and feeling it. As mentioned before sometimes I need to get my ass handed to me many times before I have the knockout game...

Quoted from JoshODBrown:

For getting the crazy scores that you get, are you just managing your multipliers closely? I can quite regularly finish all of the objectives and do the emperor in about 20-25 minutes, but my scores max out around 8-9 Billion. I am thinking just putting a little more focus on cranking up my multiplier to 40x and hitting a hyper space hurry up a few times would leave some pretty good rewards. Saw Jack Danger put 2.4 Billion on one shot with his Hyper Space Hurry Up racked up to 40x. Lately, I have been playing the game just for the modes and working through the characters and not chasing score much, but I think I want to spend some more time optimizing my scores.

It’s funny Josh cause that last game I got my highest score ever and I wasn’t really focusing on the bonus button too much. However in every game I can’t resist. I have it down now so when I need to change the bonus I hit a ramp and unlock... move... relock... and then hit the bonus shot. Sometimes have to use a ramp twice to nail it but it’s pretty intense. During dual mode I always hit every shot with bonus on... same with Boba Fett and of course video mode. Multiball I usually set it for the middle ramp (super jackpot) and leave it there.
