is there info on how to change the song names, graphics, I guess in the jukebox display in the DMD?

The song names and such are in the "messages" tab, just search for the song you are replacing and change the text. You can override the memory length as well if the new song has a longer title. Animations can be changed but it's a frame by frame affair, so a huge pain.

Quoted from Jahkub:

If it's doing that before launching the ball it's normal. All of the songs on Metallica play a short loop when you're in the shooter lane but play the full song after plunging.

Thank you!!!

Quoted from Jahkub:

It's just that the loops are built for the original songs so it's difficult to get a different song to work. If you have a song with a close enough tempo it can be done but will likely still need some creative editing.

Thank you again!!

New songs and jukebox info is loaded, just tweaking volume, but loving playing to Vicarious and The Knife on Met. Nice peice of software oga83, and the updated versions make it a breeze!

One further question, has anyone tried to change the songs on the jukebox, but maintain the songs as related to the pinball play. For example, when you get the graveyard multiball Id still like Master of Puppets to play, not my jukebox replacement song, do you know:
1) if this is possible, if so, which scripts are dedicated to the jukebox songs on 1.80?
2) is there enough memory to add 10 or 11 songs and keep original songs for multi-ball, crank it up, etc songs?

There isn't any way to do those things specifically, you have to work within the existing programming. I did find that the lady justice mode starts the music ~halfway through the track, so on one of my projects I had two songs pasted together to fill the audio space and found that song 2 queued up perfectly when lady justice began. I can't remember off the top of my head if any other songs/modes did that but there is one option for you at least. Also a tip, using a VM speeds up the audio prototyping nicely, no need to update your physical machine, just swap the rom file on your computer and run the VM.

Very cool, Ill have to try that as I "polish" the song-swap. Please excuse my ignorance, but what is VM?

A virtual machine, just an emulator that makes testing new code changes much faster.

Here is my song swap. Message location may be helpful for those working on a MET song swap.

Can anyone with experience tell me if it would be possible to add Back In Black at the beginning of Iron Man (at the beginning of the first ball, not every ball)?

Would like it to replace the beginning sound/music but that comes and goes throughout the game. Would like Back In Black just once at the start (wouldn't need the entire song either, maybe just the first 25-35 or so seconds).

Could it be added at the start before the factory start music (in addition to) the other rather then replacing it?

I just bought a Met pro and will likely be switching some songs out at some point, and this will be useful.

Thanks.

No. You would need to reprogram the game. Pinball Browser allows you to replace sounds with different sounds but the game is still playing sound x at time y.
What you want is play sound z if this condition is met and that's not possible with PB.

I think you could do it with a P-ROC from Multimorphic. https://www.multimorphic.com/p3-pinball-platform/hardware-control-system/

Hi everyone.

I am unable to get to the tiny cc website to download PBBrowser. I ahve tried in Chrome and IExplorer 11. Am I missing something, is there a mirror site available?

Thank you.

Well, don't I feel silly!

Thank you. I've downloaded it and sent a donation. Going to try this on my GB LE, Delt31 has shared his library

#3216 15 days ago

GB LE library installed on pin and enjoying it. Thank you!

#3217 14 days ago

Has anyone had success in reworking Spider-Man, and be willing to share their file?

I have a friend's SM here, until he completes his house build. He's only played maybe one game. It would be cool to update it for him.

On my computers, with version 6.60, I can't watch the videos. Version 6.51 works flawlessly on this point. Anyone else has the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Did you copy ffmpeg into the v6.60 directory ?

Has anyone had any luck customizing the ROM for the new Jurassic Park? I tried swapping out some sound clips but the firmware update kept failing about halfway though. One thing I notice is that the official rom files from Stern are split into 2 files (first is 2,000,000,000 bytes, second is 333,163,520 bytes), but pinball browser says packing is not necessary since the total size is < 4 GB. Looks like maybe JP uses a different chunk size than previous titles?

I don't know if it's the same issue but I could never get BM66 to work using the SD method so I just edit the update files, almost every time it locks up once during the update. I just reset the machine and update it again to get it to work.
