Quoted from Waxx:

I’ve been saying this as well. I think just removing the “victory laps” bonus and going to the next level would help. I’m not sure what else I want because I enjoy the upper but would like a little less.

That sounds like a very nice solution!
And an instant diverter ball release when pushing both buttons please!

#6902 75 days ago

sorry doublepost

flynnibus
Accept, hope for a change or sell the game.
Short plunges on the pro do not progress encounters, its just points so i avoid that as much as possible.
Wasn't that your name I heard on someones podcast? Can't remember...

#6903 75 days ago

Question for Shadow owners or guys that know the rules on that machine. Does the upper playfield have modes? Is it easy to master that playfield or does it take some time to get use to how it plays. Im just wondering out loud and havent gotten to play Shadow more then once but I would love to own one someday. Im thinking Eddy put the mini on Mando to sorta have alittle of the Shadows good points along with the diverter.

Just not sure I get the issue with Encounters? I can personally get through them but I also can hit the left ramp after leaving the upper mini pretty easy to start the encounters again which helps alot. Also the bonus stages I personally like, i just try to get the highest accuracy possible and collect millions of points until it times out. With no bonus stage if the game went to the next encounter level you wouldnt see the sweet scenes between encounters when the ball is resting on the up post.

Shadow's breakout playfield is SOOO much more fun than Mando. Much easier as well though

Shadow upper is more fun than any upper or lower ever.

It’s short and sweet and doesn’t have flippers.

I was worried about ordering orange when I did it, but it actually stands out a lot and looks great on mine.

Has anyone messed around with the music/sound setting after adding a Polk subwoofer and have recommendations for the different levels?

Long time shadow owner. One of our all time favs and the upper playfield is like block breaker. It’s pretty fun but no other modes. Just hitting targets. mando on the prem/le I enjoy a ton. It’s also short but integrated well within multiple modes. I think both are great

So my Mando le when turned on now doesn’t boot. I reflashed the disc image following stern site. Still doesn’t boot. First time happened to me with a stern. Could it be a pcb issue? I’ve emailed stern..any advice please..

Not yet, going to do that today. Could the SD card be corrupt? What has your experience been? Thank you

Doesn't anyone else have problems with the right orbit rejecting at the top and coming back down? Premium model

Yes. All the time. Seems like a design flaw.

Unfortunetly might be the cpu since you've tried a new SD card. Upload a video of the cpu during boot up showing the red lights and ill compare it to mine. When you turn it on does the Stern screen show on LCD then goes black or does the game show black screen and make a clicking sound without even showing the Stern screen?

Put a spot light on baby Yoda today. Lights him up a little better.

Any update to Stern’s production schedule for the premiums over the last couple of weeks? Still looking like October before they are back on the line? Thanks!

#6928 73 days ago

My right orbit pop up post rejects back down the right krbit on most shots. Anyone have a fix for this?

Well Mando LE is number 1 on Pinside 100 after 33 LE reviews. Probably stabilize around 8.6 rating is what I thought after first streaming. Either way, enjoy!

Rating system is crazy.

Last 2 people rated it a 4???

One of them appears to be an EM lover.

Other one rates a lot of other pins at a 10.

That's horrid. Seems to be hit or miss which is more of an issue. I put sound-deadening material (drops dead on impact) on the catch of the diverter
- we are about 500 games in at this time with about 50% of those completing the encounters (hitting that miniwizzard mode). Welds (sloppy as they may be) still holding.

Read the ratings the other guy gave to recent games. It's hilarious!!!

Rating system needs some help.

i don't, its blocking a ton of playfield and looks completely out of place.

Mine did this last week. I ordered new part. A temporary fix that has worked great for me so far is JB Weld and two zip ties (Smaller ones). I got it up and running after the JB Weld cured. But like yours, the welds were very small.

Use system 11 lock down bar rubber. Worked out really great.

I'm helping a new location out by getting their games setup. I'm not doing pinball tech stuff for them....I'm just making sure their games are level, pitch is set correct, tilts are reasonable, and etc. While I was leveling a Mando Pro today, I started a test game and immediately got rapid fire phantom switch hits. It jacks up the score and the beskar value real fast, even when a ball is not in play.

I went into the switch test and the problem switch was #40 - 10pt switch. I was at the end of today's visit when I discovered this issue, so I disabled replays and GC/#1 high score credit awards to prevent a million credits going on the game due to the switch issue.

What is the 10pt switch on this game and where is it located? I'm not a pinball tech, but I told the site I would look at it when I'm back tomorrow. Thanks in advance for the responses!

If you look in the manual (found here: https://sternpinball.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Mandalorian_Pro_web.pdf) you can go to page 16 and 17 to see which switches are where. Switch 40 is near the pop bumpers.

Pricey but it works really well. Though beer seal foam, lockdown bar rubber will work just fine too I suppose.

Thanks for the link! Looking at the manual, it says that the 10pt switch is a leaf switch. When I am onsite later today, I'll try to locate that switch and make there's a bit of a gap between the blades.

I don't think I've ever heard of a "10pt switch" in the modern games. Out of general curiosity, is this a common switch in the newer Stern games or is it unique to Mando? I can say though, when that switch is having problems casual players can easily score 300M and collect 1000s of Beskars.

post # 6452 had an issue like this too. It might be that leaf switch under the pops as mentioned above
