    I haven't read the table guide yet, but I think you get ball save from the drop targets if your ball happens to fall down the left outlane. You have to hope the ball bumps the R2D2 bumper enough times to hit all of them before the (potentially) inevitable drain. If you do manage to bang the ball back into play, you still get the ballsave lit!

    I've noticed the slingshots are quite strong for a Zen pinball table, but as the outlanes are somewhat forgiving if you know when to nudge it shouldn't prove too much of a problem. I quite like the boingy slingshots myself. At least those Pinball Arcade fanatics can't complain about them!

    I like all the gadgets you've added on this table. I particularly love the [s]lamp[/s] deathstar spinner, and the loop ramp on the left-hand side.

    The rubbers on the right outlane are very bouncy and gives a good opportunity to shake the ball out of there. Furthermore, there is a switch right above the outlane that will often eject the ball away from the outlane if you activate it.

    I am having a problem with the left outlane R-2 bumper. I finally figured out that you have hit all the spot targets to activate the ball save. And I had to look up the guide to figure out that you can use R2 as bit of a magna save if you don't hit them all. That is what the counter near the left flipper indicates, the number of magna saves you have left. The problem is in view 1, which i use, you can't visualize the rightmost target to determine if you hit it or not. The lamp is hard to see as well. Is there a DMD cue or a visual or audio cue to let you know that you hit all the targets?

    The right inlane hasn't a direct feed. I didn't want the players have active kickbacks all the time. You know, to get the things a less boring

    Really enjoying this great table! I do totally suck though.....so two questions:

    1. Is the Sarlaac Pit a ball save and if so, how do you activate it?

    2. Anyone found a consistent shot for the right inlane?

    I want to focus on getting the ball saving mechanics active first, before I start going for the missions.

    My record is 11 troopers right now, so it isn't impossible Try to think in advance, and not always chasing the trooper, he will come to your track sooner or later. Pass the ball with nudge (I disabled the tilt in that mode) or with a center shot. Pay attention to the lamps, they will warn you if a tree is coming
    THANK YOU!!! I was wondering what to do on there. I only got 3 troopers and nothing more. LOL

    Return of the jedi discussion

    Hey Guys,


    I think many are deeply involved with playing the tables so there isn't much discussion.

    Just barely missed getting all the scenes. I have beat every scene but scene 3. The speeder bike part is tough to get used to. Is there a final battle with emperor? Not sure his icon is in the midst of all the scenes.


    Really love the way the slings are so active. I actually get nervous when the ball is in the slings and trickle to either outlanes.

    Each mission seems to be clearly defined and pretty random (other than set ones in where to shoot) That's pretty cool.

    I love the fact that this table has so much to do and four different muti-balls which seem to stack like so many of Deep's tables.

    Actually there are 5 multi-balls with scene 4 battle of Endor.

    So as it is Any tips on the speeder bike part? I've been trying to figure out the best way to get more than one bike when I start the mode.

    Anyway, This table and Starfighter Assault are probably the best of the pack. I still rank Starfighter Assault above ROTJ but the scenes and the 4 different Multi-balls (outside of Scene 4 of course) are a blast.

    In the end if we rank that SW tables I would say my list would be (Even with the new tables released)

    Starfighter Assault
    ROTJ
    ESB
    Boba Fett
    Clone wars
    Darth Vader
Working...
