Just curious really. I know you can jack in an mp3 player prolly. But if I buy a party zone pinball can I add a song to the machine to play during certain features? I don't know everything about the machine yet. But I think it plays Purple Haze during certain parts of the game. Is there something simple that could be done to alternate between 3 songs? Something like Fight for Your Right to Party by the Beastie Boys and one other?

Short answer, no. It's incredibly difficult to edit the ROMs.

But if it's something you're interested in attempting, look around here: http://pinhacks.com

Yes you can but it would require you getting a PinSound card.

For example here is my Judge Dredd with the Prodigy;

Also my Road Show with the god awful music replaced;

With the exception of StarWars and TZ, I've not been a huge fan of alternate audio but this is an inspired idea.

There are so many good party songs. Beasties as you mentioned but Pink comes to mind along with Miley and of course, Eddie Murphy. Would love to play a PZ with some other party anthems!

Lol, no. I am Texasbabyhuey on klov, therpf, and a few others, I just thought it would be funny to use an Ol' Dirty Bastard reference. I am 36 big white guy. I hope that clears up any confusion.

I am not a big fan of Andrew W.K. but yeah an Andrew W.K. song would be fun. It would be fun to me if it would alternate between 1 of 3 or 4 songs.

Sorry about that ... I should have kept it as a private message.

That Dirt_McGirt I linked to owes me $400 worth of Dracula parts (in case anyone else in this thread that was ripped off by him stops by ). What's silly is that one of his former colleagues was supposed to send me the parts (long story), but they stopped replying to my messages for updates (I will not drag him into this). It was the *only* time I've been ripped off buying/selling over the internet in 20+years of collecting.

Anyway, since I know Dirt_McGirt ripped off a few others (mainly plastics), I just want to make sure that people don't confuse this particular Dirt for the other Dirt .

That's the first time I've watched a video with music replaced. It's a lot cooler than I thought it would be. I wouldn't change the music on Judge Dredd though, it's got bad ass music already.

You can with PinSound.
