    Agree! Definitely my favorite table of the pack. Ypok I can't wait to see what other tables you have in store for us.

    Upgrading your battle cruiser/Star destroyer's hull will definitely lengthen missions that focus on strengthening the hull.

    Upgrade all you want when you have the commendations for it. You'll be focusing on that right orbit a lot. especially when you want to start missions or shoot the operations ramp (Ramp above mission hole). You can also shoot the operations Ramp it with an accurate shot with your right flipper.

    For Fleet multiball and bonus multipliers, Focus on that upper sinkhole/invisible Ramp/diverter. Shooting that several times will lock a ball and give you mutipliers as well. Even so best be accurate as you can lose a ball with straight down the middle drains. Yes it happens even when the flippers are so close together. Nudging doesn't work like Pinball arcade.

    When AWARD is lit at the operations ramp (Ramp above mission hole) Try to get it with in the time limit. Every so often the Awards light will be lit. The random rewards are worth it. It will get you experience and rank up to unlock all the special missions (Lone Fighter etc)

    Also lighting letters is self explanatory. example shooting the barricade ramp to spell Barricade. Hit the operations ramp (Ramp above mission hole) to start the modes (Evade, Repair, Barricade etc.) I had Promote, Barricade, and Fleet Multi-balls running at the same time in conjunction with the other modes. Numbers were lighting up like a Christmas tree.

    Also get your multipliers up when you can. I'm not sure exactly how the end ball bonuses work but my last ball I had 745m end ball bonus. I've seen one at 345m. I think it works on how much supply, commendations, and experience you get from the different modes.

    Shooting that right sinkhole 6 times will give a random award too. From commendations, experience, Mutipliers, Kickbacks, Ball saver, Extra ball lit etc. It's a tough shot but not as risky as some other tables that have that kind of shot.

    And another question. How do you raise the jackpot for the final Death Star Assault phase? I think I got mine up to 2.5 million per jackpot but I didn't keep the multiball mode going as long as I wanted. I think I noticed that, after you collect the EB after hitting that ramp above the mission start hole 8 times, repeated shots to that ramp will raise a jackpot. Is that correct? Are there any other ways to raise the wizard mode jackpot value?
    Yes shooting the Operations Ramp after getting the extra ball will raise Jackpots. Same with getting the ball into the bumpers. I also think shooting that center sinkhole in the back does the same thing.

    My 3rd Death Star Assault I had Jackpots at 4.5m sometimes 5m. It all depends on the strength of you fleet too. But not sure how that works. There's a meter on the bottom of the play-field Red and Blue.

    Upgrading the ships lengthens the missions in some ways and I think they make the missions a bit easier. There was the mode where you are using the turret to shoot the fighters coming in. I noticed my hull went from 20 to 30 at some point. It made the mode much easier. Not saying that it wasn't easy I just recall that the hull definitely increased. I assume it's the same for all the missions.

      This is the only thing that gets me every time on this table, it's making me mad lol. It's always a SDTM drain.

          Just had 110 million but in hot seat mode with two friends. I had...3 extra balls. Ball 1: 70 million, extra ball. And with the extra ball I got two more extra balls and my friends decided to leave as they were bored.

          I collected two extra balls at once...is this a bug? I thought you could only get 1 ball at a time.

            I haven't figured out the strength of the fleet works either. I am pretty sure winning main modes and some hurry-up modes can change it. I think I had EVADE running with a bunch of multiballs and other hurry-ups so I couldn't tell which ramp to hit. I kept hitting wrong ramps and eventually drew down my fleet strength to all blue (I was playing EMPIRE). But I think winning some main modes got it back up pretty quickly. I read a little about it in the in-game guide but have no idea how it affects scoring or missions.

              Finally a legit single player score with 105 million (two games after my 110m hot seat score)...but...why does the narrator/voice always say an additional mission is available? I completed a hurry-up mode or something like that...the voice said I just got a new mission. Some minutes after I completed something else and the narrator said the same thing again. However, there were no new missions shown. Or can they be started from elsewhere and not the usual mission hole (above the upper left flipper)?

                I think you are referring to the promotion hurry-up. After getting a certain amount of experience points?/commendations? which I think is signified by the small flashing dots near the left flipper, you can get a promotion. Hit the left loop to spell out PROMOTE. Then shoot the flashing operations ramp to start a 2-ball multiball. When that ends you will be promoted with opens up new "side" missions like bomber run from the right sinkhole. Certain missions become available only after a certain number of promotions.

                  Thanks. Ok, so you don't start the new missions from the main mission hole above the upper left flipper. I thought you could start mission 6 or 7 from there (as additional missions were announced).

                    I got 100% trophies on zp2 and Star Wars pinball for balance of force

                    Lone fighter and 100 comendations do at same time.
                    Pick to be empire to fly a tie fighter they shoot faster and x wings are bigger targets and easier to hit

                    Play fleet mission one phase 1 kill all but the 1 fighter ( kill 24) then die on purpose don't go to phase 2

                    Repeat for 100 commendAtions ( each kill = 1 commendation)

                    Now hit orbit to spell upgrade
                    Upgrade shields 3 times
                    1st time = 10 commendation
                    2nd time = need 30
                    3 rd time 60
                    4 th time 100

                    Then with level 4 shields hit the 3 squad targets
                    Then start squad mission with sink hole
                    Make it to wave 4 and trophy pops

                    Hope that helps
                    You do not need to kill the lone hard to kill fighter
                    Just survive to wave 4
                    Each time a fighter flies past you u lose 1 shield point
                    At level 4 shields I think u start with 11-12 shields
                    So 11-12 fighters can fly past u without u dying
                    With no shield upgrade its only 7

                      Well, I'd say the first table you designed is a resounding success, Ypok so you should give yourself a pat on the back for that.

                            I have a couple, since I still need to get three more trophies (2 for SWP app and 1 more for ZP2).

                            How hard are the other squad missions on the Starfighter Assault table? Are they any easier than the Lone Fighter one (that one was a pain)?

                            Do you have any tips on the Trench Mode trophy for the Darth Vader table?

                              I feel honored to help u out shogun
                              U are usually getting them 1st and helping me out

                              1. Complete all squad missions is easy and title is little misleading
                              U don't have to complete the just play them
                              So for loan star fighter u don't need to reach wave 4 just play it
                              Then use the fleet mission 1 phase 1 and shoot all but 1 fighter
                              Die on purpose and continue to do so until button on bottom left lites up and blinks indicating you are ready for promotion
                              Then hit orbit to spell promote and play multi ball promote ceremony when done u will be rank 2
                              Light up 3 squad targets and play next mission
                              Rank up again with fleet mission 1 phase 1 don't go to phase 2 you may have to do a couple of times before u rank up but just repeat process rank up promote play squad mission move on to next one easy!

                              2. Vader was easy
                              First tie has nothing to run into just trail and shoot him
                              Next tie will have "trees" or columns u can hit dodging is paramount and just hold finger on x and hitting target while you dodge
                              3rd will be nothing to run into just trail him with trigger or button held down
                              And it goes back and forth every other one will have columns to dodge
                              I found it real easy I think u will too

                                That's because I have a new job with long hours. I didn't have much time to play this game over the week and when I did I was pretty tired, so my reflexes sucked.

                                That's much easier than I thought. I thought I had to complete all of the missions, which would be a real pain.

                                2. Vader was easy
                                First tie has nothing to run into just trail and shoot him

                                Cool! I was actually timing my shots, but I'm not really good at these non-pinball mini-games. It's good to know that I only have to dodge the objects and not focus at aiming the Tie Fighter.
