    Default How to do the Jedi training in empire table ???

    I am unable to do the Jedi training. I know how to move, and I can only stop the ray once if I'm lucky. I'm a missing something ?

    Just hold the left or right flipper to defend the left or the right side. With the launch button, you can defend upwards.

    You have to be fast. If you just move the saber as the probe is about to fire it's usually too late. Try to anticipate a bit more(you can usually see where it is moving by the path it uses), and you know: "use the force".

    I was also confused with this (I was trying to get the achievement) but it turns out it's very easy to do

    I don't like these modes. It's just not pinball. I wouldn't have minded if it was just a video mode, but minigames like this are another thing entirely. Boba Fett had a similar mode in which you guide the Slave I and shoot some flying things. At least minigames like the Soul Gem mission in Infinity Gauntlet and Behind the Walls in Sorcerer's lair still had a pinball in it.

    Please, no minigames! Keep it simple for simple minds like mine!

    I have a question about the ball launcher on android, as in there is no ball launch button. So how would I go about blocking the high shots in the Jedi training mode

    An on-screen button has to show up on the right side of the screen.

    I actually love the Jedi training mode. It is a great interactive way to implement an iconic scene from the film.

    In the german rulesheet it says i have to press the "start"button to defend upwards , but its just a minor writing fault ....

    thank you for making me feel dumb.

    That looks easy.

    It's obviously been years ago but I think the pinball tables I was playing in the arcade (during the later days of the arcade) had some small minigames in it. Now granted they weren't all beautiful and in color but I could see the Jedi Training being translated (and working) in Dot Matrix. Regardless, I love the minigames and I think shows a natural evolution of things.

    Is there some trick to doing that bang back thing(1:01 in the vid)? I have been trying but just can't seem to get it.. The ball doesn't seem to bounce enough, is there a specific direction you have to push the stick in?

    in this specific case you have to nudge the table to the up right (more up like in a 1 o'clock direction)
    on most tables the timing is exactly the same
    just nudge the table in the moment the ball is about to go under the flipper
    sometimes you have to be a bit earlier and sometimes a bit later since it also depends on how fast the ball is rolling
    when I started playing I couldn't do bang backs at all and now I do them 80% of the time so it's all about experience

    Thanks for the tips. It's gotten to the point where I'm hoping for a side drain so I can practice

    Play the X-Men and Fear Itself tables. Side draining is very common on those two tables.

    I notice on the Fantastic 4 side drains are more common as well...

    Or V12.. although the outlanes are wider so bang-backs are a little tougher to do.

    Iron Man will have a lot of them too as long as you don't light the kickbacks.
