Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap - Just wondering why isn't it one of the tracks for Sterns ACDC? Would be a better choice than a lot of the tracks that actually made it on. IMO.

Maybe a licensing thing?

Why No Shoot to Thrill.

#3 4 years ago

Dirty deads is to slow of a song. I can see why they didn't use it.

Shoot to thrill on the other hand? Don't know, but it might have been because of the license with the ironman movie at the time?

Riff raff would have been awesome too

Too slow? It would be an awesome track to play to IMO.

Theres slower ones on there....

Did i read somewhere you can edit tracks and insert your own? Be great to switch out a couple of tracks...even though the modes might not match.

#7 4 years ago

Shoot to Thrill would be awesome also.

Hey Mark, Pinball Browser is a massive topic. ACDC and MET have had people swapping songs out like mad.

There are other threads under the game titles, for example getting new AC/DC jukebox cards made to match new songs, etc.

When I owned my ACDC I put both Shoot to Thrill and Dirty Deeds on my pin. They were great.

#10 4 years ago

My AC/DC Pro has both of those songs. Thanks Pinball Browser!

Do any of you guys throw Mistress for Christmas on your game during the Holidays?

I had them both on mine and they were totally awesome, also big balls, it was a nice change and they fit in just fine imo.

That's my handiwork I believe. Did you get that from Arcade and Me?

Also Dirty Deeds is one of the best songs to play it to. How anyone thinks it's too slow blows my mind but to each his own. Too slow are half the songs on a stock MET.

#15 4 years ago

I got a ACDC Plastic with the song changes as well (need to post a pic with it installed). Changed out two songs and added Shoot to Thrill and Dirty Deeds......best part is Dirty Deeds comes on after the match sequence right at the Dirty Deeds chant. Shoot to Thrill replaced the song that has the cannon as the mode and the graphics shooting, so it looks stock

#16 4 years ago

We have shoot to thrill where you have Dirty Deeds so it is what plays after each game. I LOVE it as it's my favorite song.

#17 4 years ago

I would just put the whole Powerage record on there and call it a day. And then when I'm in the mood, I'd have a zip drive on hand with a pinball browser modified code with High Voltage on it.

Yes, and thanks!

My game over music is- "if you're, havin' trouble makin' one-night stands, try playin' in a rockin' band. It's a long way to the top..."

It was totally non-intentional, so I just got lucky.

"Why no Big Balls?" is the question I am asking!

That is so awesome! I might have to move long way to the top to that position. Currently Long Way to the Top is our Encore song if you make it that far.

If you want blood would be awesome on the jukebox.

Somebody has done it. I remember making a plastic with that on it.

In the promotional video, DDDDC and Big Balls are mentioned by the designers as favorite songs. Another interview said that AC/DC's people dictated the songs and wanted some from certain eras (i.e. the newer album.) Very recently Gary Stern said in an interview that it is his job to protect the license. I took this to mean that the browser that allows song changes may be vulnerable to a legal challenge. Note to self to buy it (and the little TV it now comes with) soon.

I wonder if the subject matter of both those tracks was a little too risky for Stern?

Can you just modify the .bin file and then use the USB to update the code as you would normally do an update? Or do you need to use a serial cable to connect?

#27 4 years ago

You just slap it on a USB and do a normal update....just make sure to search for the name of the song you replaced and change it to the new one (also done in the browser software) before updating

Ive changed the songs and they work fine. Is there any way to get them to loop once they finish? My new songs just stop if you are still playing when the song finishes.

All of my replaced songs loop.
You just need to edit them to the same length as the original Stern file and they will loop.
I use Audacity to edit all songs.

They do loop, but the songs are of a fixed length. If you insert a shorter length song there will be silence at the end. If you insert a song that is longer, it gets truncated.

What they said but what is missing is when you replace the song with the shorter song you have to manually start the song again to have it fill in the missing time. I.e. song A is 5:00 min long and you replace with song B at 3:45 long. Using Audacity (or whatever song software you use) just start your song over and it will last 1:15 before stopping and the original song starts again. This might sound like a terrible outcome but it really isn't. It is very hard to get to the end of a song in AC/DC and even when you do the thrill of hearing a song you like better far out weighs the mid song cutoff. Song play time played a heavy roll in which songs Arcade and I used when modding ours. That and the title of the song on the jukebox plastic. The light behind the plastic isn't changeable so, if getting a new plastic, song title length is important to consider as well.
