Quoted from Tgr81dk:

I purchase new SD cards, I downloaded etcher, I downloaded using the link Sargent Pepper. Taken out original card and inserted new card. Game just keeps flashing Restarting Game. Inserted original SD card game plays fine. Instructions seem so simple what am I doing wrong? Thanks.

SORRY! Etcher no longer works with Stern code. You have to use Win32DiskImager

#103 10 months ago

I updated the original post to remove Etcher as the image writing tool and recommend Win32Disk Imager

Just downloaded so will check them out on our platinum. They should have let you choose an album to play but too expensive. Same songs get old so this is nice of you to do.

Can you do abbey road next? That is our favorite.

#106 9 months ago

Can you do one for Magical Mystery Tour?

As always thanks everyone for the kind words. This was a fun project I did while stuck at home during COVID last year.

Since then my marital status has...changed and I'm back at work and not really focused on my pinball hobby; hence no new mixes and slow response times. Maybe I'll have time again in the future, but doesn't seem like it for the time being.

A number of people have asked for help with copies and for additional mixes, and I try to help when possible, but I've been busy with other areas of my life and haven't been able to get to some of them. I hope the instructions in the initial post are clear and if you message, I'll try to help.

I'm happy to share the files for everything I've done if anyone wants it and to work on their own. This was all a labor of love and I never wanted any monetary return on it.

Thanks for the efforts. I'd like to continue the work for my machine, so I'll reach out.

Hi I nave got the white album working but the others keep coming up game restarting and nothing shows up on the screen for some reason. Anyone had this issue with the revolver and the Sargent pepper versions?

I have tried it with 3 different 16 go sd cards but no joy.

All versions have worked well for me. The process of imaging the cards worked identically, and all worked correctly upon insertion into the game.

EDIT: I'll add that I use windows and win32diskimager. I ended up using 32gb SanDisk cards, as the 16gb cards seem to be getting harder to find / more expensive.

These remixes are great!

Has anyone noticed with the replacement ROMs that the super jackpot collect (behind FAB) doesn't light up at the end of the first mode? It lights after all the other modes I play, but not the first one. And it lights after the first mode when I use the stock ROM.

I was thinking it might have been a bug and that the custom ROMs were based on a older version of the software, but 1.10 is the latest and is from February 2019 according to Stern's site.

The super jackpot thing is the only problem I've found. Maybe it's a setting? (I have, in fact, confirmed that the super jackpot light is not lit and it's not active -- hitting it does nothing after the first song is done. At least until the second song is done and it lights up.)

#119 47 days ago

Hello, you are correct. In all of the versions, the Super Jackpot only lights if you complete the mode. I think something broke in the code, but I cannot find out what I did and do not know how to fix it. Sorry

Quoted from VonPinball:

And this only applies to the first mode, correct? In other words, the rest of the modes you play will light the Super Jackpot when the timer runs out even if you don't complete them.

WOW!!! Sir Von, you deserve a medal and I will get you one! I had no idea this was even possible. I was a burned out 54 year old software engineer until I fortunately bought a Beatles pin and chanced on this post. Extending your work, I’ll be building a new mod to include a mix inc Hey Bulldog, some from Abbey Road, and others 1967+. I’m also gonna try to change the record call outs when picking songs to Wolf Man Jack’s voice naming the song. Really excited to give this a go. Thank you. Thank you! Any advice would be appreciated

#122 45 days ago

I love the White Album mix in particular. It's so much more rockin, and obla dee is perfect for the pop bumper mode.

One quick note, I discovered that the high-score screen for obladee still says lovely Rita. Not a big deal, but just something to note.

That sounds awesome, please keep us updated!

After many months and SD cards I’ve decided to admit that I can’t get these to work on my game. I even tried multiple times on a work Windows PC thinking it was an Apple/Microsoft thing. I just can’t stare at that initializing/boot screen anymore, I’m tapping out! Soo if anyone is willing to burn these for me please PM me and I’ll flip some bucks your way.

#124 44 days ago

Chisox, private text me. I’ll help u out. I was able to get it working after seeing the same reboot screen at first. I had Etcher at first changed to Win32DiskImager and that worked for me 2nd time.

About the mod I’m working, I identified 90 voice call outs referencing song titles that need to be changed out LOL. I had no idea that many but I’ll do it. I’m looking for a txt to voice app that sounds like a cool DJ if u locate one, please flip the URL.

Albums are great. Will say this is one of the titles the Really doesn’t need Pinstadiums!

I was either using the Omegas or XStreams, neither of which he makes anymore. They were straight white LED. I don't like all the flashy RGB changing colors, I just want more light on the playfield. They were barely worth the $225 I paid and def not $600!

It's not too hard to make a pair of your own (there's a thread on pinside).

I've never tried before, but could probably just do a combo of these:

oga83 recently released version 7.03 of PinballBrowser and it is an amazing upgrade that now allows you to replace video assets! I highly recommend checking it out and playing around with it. It's very easy to use.
I've always wished Stern had gone with the "later" Beatles and I went a little wild with it the past week or so with a Sgt Pepper re-theme and replaced all the songs and video assets in the game!
I'm not a graphic designer by any means, but the videos replacements turned out well. I'll be making some further tweaks in the coming weeks as I collect notes and I may change or tweak a song, but it's fun to play for now!

You'll need to flash an SD card (I recommend a Class 10 SD Card with a minimum of 16gb) using the free software Win32DiskImager (https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/). If your computer does not have an SD Card slot, I recommend using a USB adapter similar to this one: amazon.com link »
After that, just turn off the game, swap out the SD card in your backbox with this one, turn it on, and you'll be ready to go. If you want to change back, just put the old SD card back in! The old SD Card will retain your high scores.
Done on Beatles Gold Code, but confirmed to work on Diamond and Platinum.
A big thanks again to oga83, I recommend everyone give Pinball Browser a shot and play around. It's very intuitive and for $20.00, it's one of the cheapest mods on the market!

Has any one used this with a Mac with success? The win32imager is windows software. Cant wait to see the other versions in action!
