Hi guys, my star wars LE freezes while in gameplay.
While playing, all of a sudden it ignorers all shots/switches, also when ball drains, music just keeps on playing and all of a sudden it works again and counts bonus and so on.

Now stern did send me a new cpu board asap, nice but same shit did happen again today.

Anyone else experiencing same problem? Have a solution for it?

Both boards running on 0.89.

#2 2 years ago

The time difference is still before STERN closes . I would call and get Pat Powers on the phone and explain that the board cpu swap had no effect . I hope you get it resolved. Sorry I have no input that can help you.

Thanks. Im in direct dialog with stern now, great service until now.
Sent then videoes. Will update here when we solve it.

Also another thing, while playing, music stops playing, all soundeffects are there but no music. Anyone experienced the same?

I played one on route where when I was ready to start a mode, but hit the orbit, everything went dead and the screen showed me the mode select. I tried to quickly select and get through the video sequence to regain power to the flippers, but since the pops were dead they couldn't keep the ball up there and the ball drained too quick to do anything.

This actually happened twice over the course of the afternoon.

Damn. Maby spike system is known to be unstable?

this happens on my premium too. i think its a bug in the code. i just laugh when it happens, and will wait for the next code update.

Short test. I love everything about vader and hate yoda. After the fight on Hoth when Luke visits yoda the movies paste goes down and gets so fu..... borring!

Oh well light saber duel is awesome, darth on the screen with a lightsaber it sweeeeeat.

Clicking on both flipperbuttons makes yoda shut up and just gives you the bonus. THIS IS THE BEST UPDATE EVEr. Thank you Mr. DS.
You are wreckless, oh shut up allready.

Allready awesome lightshow is better now.

Xwing sounds when shooting ties are also awesome. If was a meeh feeling before, now i really enjoy blasting them

Did the update fix the problems that you were having?

#16 2 years ago

Only playes for short time. But it would be great.

But when shooting the left side of the horse shue shot (Hoth) i HATE that the hyperdrive lane ramp doesn’t go down fast enough, that the ball smachs into the backside of the ramp. That hard metal clonk sound!!!!!

I hope they can fix it so the motor can drive faster down and make a clear loop. Not a clonk. Wait. Ruin flow. Ramp down. Ball common down realllly slow. Bullshit design.

#17 2 years ago

Still not tested my sw today but there is another update allready? Whats the fix?

I doubt they're going to be able to change how this works, just can't see the ramp dropping that quickly. I do think they sped up how quickly the ramp drops to release the ball though, right?

That ramp issue doesn't bother me...it's worth it to have the death star ramp there, and it's not up all the time.

The only problem with my SWLE is that I don't have enough time to play it.

Now that they shut up Yoda for you, Stern's got you back in their pocket!

Naw, that's not me stuffed in there...it's just all my money.

Code .92. Played a couple great games and my fork ramp is stuck up. Power cycle did nothing. In service menu I test the ramp and nothing. I try to switched between 55, 56, 57 and all times I try it "failed". Lifted the playfield and connections look ok...any ideas.

Man, that stinks... we played about 10 games or so last night on .92 without any issues. I don't know if this is possible but can you reload .91 or even load .92 again to see if it clears the error?

#24 2 years ago

I think the motor died...so weird. Everything else works perfect. All connections are good, I can move the motor manually, and there are no technician alerts. Unless the 4.14 motor driver board 9D has a problem (although other things connected to it are fine), it's got to be the ramps motor. Bummer

That really sucks. I still havent had time on my sw. Not before thuesday

Yikes. Thank is a drag.

I try to download the new code, and all it does is open up a new web page. Doesn't download anything. Anyone else have that issue? I'm on a Mac.

#28 2 years ago

I'm having a huge problem with my LE.

I can't stop playing it.

I just checked it...it's doing that for me, too. Send me your email address. I'll share it with you on Dropbox.

EDIT: Found it...so I have it if you want it.

#29 2 years ago

I heard that there is a problem with the new code and Stern is trying to fix it.
Could be why you can't download it.

#30 2 years ago

Thanks beelzeboob. I’m going to hold off at the moment. I just got an email today saying not to play the game with .92. Sounded kinda bad... Anyone know what’s wrong with that version? Here’s the email:

ATTENTION ALL STERN STAR WARS OWNERS:

My ramp is also stuck after updating to .92. They said they're sending me a new ramp, I wonder if the software screwed it up and burned it out, or if it'll work with earlier code.

Ramp motor or power board? Whatever you get, I wouldn't install it until this is fixed. Some have, and it works for a short time and fails again.

#34 2 years ago

I'm not sure which they're sending. I'm waiting either way for the new verified code update. What a pain..

The issue is people where talking about it a week ago. I cannot believe they are this late to acknowledge. I'm not sure if mine is fried or not. I played a few games and have not played again since I heard the rumblings.

Came from where I got my LE from, Hemisphere Amusements.

#37 2 years ago

No issues with the latest v0.93 so far. That has been 2 weeks since that code was released.

#38 2 years ago

Oh cool! I need to get that then

#39 2 years ago
Quoted from jdpilot:

Yes!! ASAP and enjoy that game! I have 65 games on my premium since the v0.93 update. I have not seen anyone with any issues on any other threads either.

#40 2 years ago

No issues with the old or current code.
