    probably the next question is

    why are the balls all dropping out the back and running away across my kitchen floor?



    oh wait, I think that may have been one of MY questions way back



    seriously, any questions at all no matter how silly you may think, I'm sure someone here will know the answer

    For my pachinkos and pachislo, I just solder a 22 ohm wire-wound resistor (IIRC) to one speaker terminal in series. It doesn't give you the flexibility of a potentiometer, but it does look "factory". In other words, you don't see it.

    hi...just checking in. i'm not one to abandon forums once i've got some answer! =)not much to report apart from waiting patiently for the spare parts (pots) to come in and also my local maplins didn't have the US 2 pin mains socket so i dont have to chop off the original connector.haven't turned the machine on since previous occasion as it's so damn loud. =)i looked at the inside of the cabinet to see where there is space for me to mount the transformer so it's out of the way and not sitting out in the open. there appears to be a spot in the bottom left if you are looking straight on at the machine. i will screw it down there... hopefully far enough from the speakers or anything else that could be affected?

    Most transformers end up in the bottom rh corner when viewed from the back as the lead doesn't get in the way when opening the door. In my set up I have 2 large remote transformers feeding 4 machines plus the data counters and aisle attendant call lights. Wait till I finish building the card reader units too

    the pots finally showed up today (only took a week!) and i wired them in. not the best looking job in the world but works great, now the game is a bit manageable but the balls rattling against the pegs are still quite loud, though i guess there's not much i can do about that. =)

    the next question is actually, is there a 'how to play" manual anywhere for this game?? i'm guessing i have to get the balls into the 3 little holes and not the large slot at the bottom. but what triggers what exactly? help. =)

    bank holiday monday.

    finally tidied things up and screwed the transformer down out of sight inside the wooden enclosure.

    now it's just all play. not very well, mind.

    I think yours is the CRフィーバースター・ウォーズZF version.

    Which gives lousy payout odds of 1/496.6 It should be listed on the front of the cel in the top right corner, But beware, When it starts to payout you can hit a long streak and be there for ages transfering balls from front to back.

    I think that most versions in the UK are that version. Best way to hit a fever is...

    Okay hopefully not going to get in trouble for getting in on this thread after four years! But I've had my Star Wars Pachinko in the cellar for around 5 years and recently moved house and attempted to turn it on. Unfortunately smoke emitted from the transformer. I'm literally the worst when it comes to things like this but does anyone have any simple suggestions or link to a replacement one - ideally from Farnell or other such UK supplier? Thanks in advance !

    Either farnells or RS is good. As not sure which star wars you have from the 3 versions. Don't know the current rating. Look on the back for a VA rating. Then look for a transformer slightly higher

    Transformer coils?

    Why do you have a 100vac to 24 vac transformer.
    Your in the UK right. So what do you plug the machine into? Another transformer or I hope not. Straight into the wall socket.

    Hmm I always plugged it into the wall socket never had a problem until this recent episode. Should I be plugging it into something else beforehand? My bad if so
