Quoted from Flyfalcons:

Had a chance to play this again last night. The visibility of the shots on the right is a problem due to the plastic ramps. The encounter playfield is low and behind so much stuff that my kids would have a difficult time seeing it. I want to like this machine but to me, these issues detract from the enjoyment of the game.

Sounds like your kids needs to try a Prem/LE. Yesterday my 11 yr old was in the upper mini and looked at me and said "I love this game". I didn't think I'd like the mini myself but damn is that fun. The added diverter is so slick when it does it on the 180 ramp that I can't see not having that feature. Even the magnet if it wasn't there now would seem weird.

Any suggestions on what pinballs should be used with the Premium/LE, regarding the pf magnet?

Titan standard shiny pinballs will work great in all games.

The magnet can be pretty crazy powered. It threw the ball up over the ramp yesterday. Dwight should power it down to a crawl to mimic Grogu slowly pulling the ball with the force and possible add in some control with the action button letting the ball go when your over the lane you want the ball to go down to award you. Also Dwight if your here(i know your watching) the shaker is terribly to powerful. Every shake is full power even at minimum setting. Calm it down and make it build up. Also theres moments where all the playfield lights are off except the mini playfield that needs some work.

Is there an aftermarket product, if I remember properly there is, that de-gausses the balls while they are in the trough?

Not that I’m aware of. There’s a plastic shim for WPC games that helps cover any pits in the trough. This would not be needed for new games.

Agree on the shaker. I turned it off completely.

Cara here. Also here is the cabinet speaker, I'm not sure if it's also different then some other LEs like my backbox speakers.

Dwight is here reading/following so its much easier for him to see stuff here specific to his game then go through whatever happens at Stern i feel. Plus I've reported bugs before there even with videos of issues and no response where I've chatted with Dwight now a few times here and on streams so i just find it easier for him to notice by posting here.

#6115 4 months ago

Man I really like that Cara Dune sticker. I just can't bring myself to pay $7.50 for shipping. Maybe I'm a cheap ass. I never like it when people over charge on shipping. Instead of paying $15 for the sticker and $7.50 for shipping, I'd pay $20 for the sticker and $2.50 for shipping.

It's a mental thing for me. Ok, maybe I'm nuts. Or does it really cost $7.50 to ship a sticker now?

#6116 4 months ago

+1 on the shaker. Dwight, please turn that bad boy down. It's crazy town. I love me a shaker, but that thing is a little hot. Otherwise, you coded a great game. I'm loving what I'm seeing so far!

#6117 4 months ago

Would that Cara Dune sticker get torn up pretty quickly or is it worth it?

They send a set of flipper decals along to. Not really my cup of tea but was a nice addition Tilt tossed in.

Quoted from KozMckPinball:

It's same material as side art blades I think so I'm not sure how well it will hold up really. It's a easy install though, just take the 2 screws out and pull the metal lane to do it. Pre punch the holes in decal before trying to put the screws back in so it don't wrinkle.

Always use the email. It will get to the right spot. Never expect a response, but they see it. It’s easy for them to track bugs if they are all sent that way. Including video is best. If not, the most detailed description of how it happened that you can.

Knowing how this works in practice because I have the same type of software job, using the general email will allow anyone on Dwight's team to pick it up and take a look at it as well. Always more effective to do that than send correspondence straight to an individual, even if it is the lead person. Your input will result in a customer case in their trackable system. Multiple reports of the same issue by others will most likely escalate the issue at Stern.

#6123 4 months ago

I’m pretty sure I saw Grogu move but that’s between him and I. Here’s my speakers and what they look like since we were on the topic.

Le arrived today. See pic one before playing. Pic 2 after three balls it cracked. Filed a ticket. Anyone know what stern is doing to fix this major issue?

you should be able to file a warranty claim and they will send you new piece. My friend had a Zep LE where the metal ramps with misaligned welds and they sent us new ones

That had to have happened during test play at factory?

Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

Yes there was four games played before shipping. Was a hairline crack at the metal post and then when I played three games I split in half. This is a known issue with all models so check your machines. The plastic has to be reinforced and metal extended longer or this will just happen again. No way to fix but replace the entire long plastic ramp.

I wonder if the steepness of the ramp takes more direct ball strikes than a normal ramp position.

#6131 4 months ago

I hope the ramp and diverter issues are fixed by the time I want to order this winter...

Love this forum, Pinside in general. I have not even taken delivery yet and know what I need to do to prevent some issues from posters here. Thanks!

Is this the a magnet that would then preclude one from using Ninja balls? Never understood if it was all magnets, certain types, amount used on pf, etc.

#6135 4 months ago

Mando LE 94 in the house. Very fun to play. I haven’t taken the time to properly level and everything yet (short on time) but very fun.

Like others, I am getting rejects off the diverted. I’ll adjust flipper power.

I had two different games where the ball got trapped by the rotating upper playfield! Looks like a problem spot. And ball search didn’t think to move the upper pf. It eventually gave up and served up another ball. It’s a glass off issue right now.

Truer words have never been spoken.. this will be my first NIB ( going with the pro, looks like October delivery) purchase and the insights from the Ops,buyers and people that have just flipped a few games on this have gone a long way towards me finally pulling the trigger. Still at the end of the day it was being able to spend a few hours playing the LE and the pro side by side on Monday. Because of this thread I'm already eyeing alot of wonderful mods and plan on installing the metal rails before I ever flip my first game on mine. Thanks pinside. This is the way.

#6137 4 months ago
Quoted from P1nhead:

Turned down the flipper power to 240 for right and left flippers, no issues with bouncebacks when hitting the diverter for the upperplayfield staging anymore... still able to rip all the shots otherwise.
The foam is a good idea as well (maybe would help with the broken diverters by absorbing/redistributing the impact of the shots more).

What does the upper pf diverter look like? Is that the one that keeps breaking?

#6138 4 months ago

Anyone know what Stern is doing about the left ramp cracking issue? Are they supplying a thicker ramp or ramp with a better ramp protector or just replacing the ramp as-is?

#374 dropped! Will stream unboxing, some mods and play for a full day on 7/18! Stay tuned.

Yeah it's pretty cool man ...imo , still need to add more texture on the base
[quoted image][quoted image]

Dayum diddy, now this mod I like!!! Would definitely be interested in this mod once it gets painted and textured. Put me down for one brutha.

Still contemplating the Beskar mod. Do you have an updated photo of the finished product? Also reason I ask is because I’m going to somehow mount one of those X-wing miniatures Tie Fighter above the spinner to the left of that scoop and I don’t want it to look too cluttered, but I really like your mod because it sets up the shot well.

#6142 4 months ago

The le’s look great. I’ve been playing a pro for the past two weeks. The game is amazingly fun. It’s great for a casual player. You can have good long games and enjoy yourself! Lots of multiballs and cool rules. Can be challenging at times! Can’t wait to get mine and mod the crap out of it!

#6143 4 months ago

Your speakers have shields in the middle because they are cooler than mine! Stern just switched speaker manufacturers at some point. No biggy. I like those better than the kenwoods.

Quoted from NightTrain:

For awhile it has seemed that the Kenwood KFC-1366s have been getting harder to find. It's weird they would make a very viable change like that mid run on an LE game. It seems that if they didn't have enough of one model to do the whole 750 LE run....they would have held the older model for replacements or something.

Can someone post the brand and model number of the new "shield" speakers?

#6146 4 months ago

Is anyone else getting crazy feedback from their speakers when the up/down scoop is activated and holding?

#6147 4 months ago

Anyone else getting these tech alerts? Not sure what it means. Everything seems to work fine.
