I was really bored and I like Christmas music, so I changed all the music on my Metallica premium.
I did this for myself and for fun, I don't think anyone will be interested in it but if you are here is the link.
This is for a PREMIUM or LE model only, If by chance someone wants it for a pro let me know and I can do one for that model.

Main songs are listed, Song times are long so in most cases 2 or 3 songs are used.
Last Christmas
feliz navidad
mele kalikimaka
the Christmas song
Christmas time in hollis Queens
marshmallow world
have yourself a merry little Christmas
all I want for Christmas
Christmas time is here
white Christmas
sleigh ride
let it snow
Santa go straight to the ghetto
the spirit of Christmas

Yes please... if it isn't too much trouble, a Pro version would be awesome! But seriously, not if it is a lot of bother.

I love custom music pinball mixes. Can someone post a video, please?

This is pretty cool, good job. After I saw this, with the call out ins the game... like For Whom the Bell Tolls... you could have like Carol of the Bells, or Jingle Bells playing instead, when you pick For Whom the Bell tolls in Crank it up for example... not that it matters, haha.

This will be fun to put in the game, thanks

Very cool - thanks!

I want to modify my MET Premium for the holidays season. I'm assuming uploading this BIN as well as restoring the original code later will wipe out my high scores each time. Correct?

#12 1 year ago

Yes, that is the unfortunate part your machine will be reset to factory settings.

#13 1 year ago

Dude! This is fuggin AWESOME!!! The load finished, and of course, I went through a couple quick settings, and then bam! All the titles look good, and it is a fun little twist on the game for the holiday! Thanks a bunch for putting together the Pro version for us.

So. If any of y'all weren't aware. There's a kickass metal album...

I can't wait, but I'm having trouble installing this. What program to I need to open the download? What is the process - it's been so long since I've updated this thing.

You need to copy the BIN file to the root of a USB stick.

Shut off the game. Change dip switch 8 to on on the CPU (the top right board). Insert the USB stick in the USB slot. Turn on the game. Run the update. It will take a while. When done it will tell you to remove the stick and set dip 8 back to off. Then turn off the game, and finally turn it on. Go into settings and reset to free play and any other settings. Poof, have fun.

Uploaded the new tunes and just finished one of my best MET games ever! Don't know if the outstanding Christmas mix was the key or not, but MET is definitely playing A LOT JOLLIER than usual!

THANKS MAN - this is great!!!

Thanks for taking the time to do this and the willingness to share it. I just uploaded it to my Metallica Pro on location last night. I only got to play one game on it, but I was really impressed. We are going to donate all the coin drop from the machine the rest of the month to the local humane society as a holiday gift. Thank you for helping us spread some holiday cheer!

I am glad some people are enjoying this Christmas mix as much as I am.
somehow it ended up helping out some cute dogs, an unexpected win.
When I finished the mix a friend asked me to make a Metal version, I thought it made sense. Metallica, duhh.
so here it is, the metal Christmas mix. Enjoy.

Thanks! So I don't need to unzip the file? Just download and copy onto the stick??

Do not unzip file, just download on to USB stick.

This is so awesome and I'm totally missing out. The game doesn't recognize the file whether downloaded on a Mac or PC. I follow all the instructions, insert the drive and nothing happens!! Hit the select button and nothing registers! ughhhh

Did you move the dip switch on the main board?

#32 1 year ago

I had to try a couple of different usb drives before the game would recognize the file.

Format the USB key to fat-32

Awesome job, thanks for the Rockin' version. And the well wishes, lol. Family love it!
I found a hat for sparky from a wine bottle gift wrap.

I finally finished shopping out my Metallica and promptly loaded up this code. It is fantastic. Not only because it's hilarious to hear the wrong songs and callouts that are now totally out of place. That would be enough, but the sound quality is great, everything is mixed well as far as song volume. Even some of the text is different. Great job! What other games have you done?

#37 1 year ago

Thanks, glad you are enjoying it!
I did a sound remix for X-Men and also Spiderman vault.

I just installed this on my Met last night as well. Excellent job with the music choices and integrating it into the game. Everyone that was there was surprised and laughing a bit listening to Christmas music coming from a Metallica pin. Loved the inclusion of Wham! - Last Christmas as one of the songs, awesome, lol! Perfect setup for the holidays with family over.

#39 1 year ago

It just wouldn’t be complete without Wham!

Cool part is listening to the songs in radio attract mode.. best first ball ever with this code 239 mil. Thanks for doing this!!

Because I’ve only owned MET a couple years, I didn’t even know it had the radio attract mode. It’s a Christmas miracle.

Haha. 2020 has been such a crappy year. I've kept Christallica installed all year. Always brings a smile to any one playing it, including me.

Same. I installed it last December and I just can’t imagine not having it. It’s the perfect soundtrack for the game.

#46 5 months ago

I'll be reinstalling one of them this weekend. I don't recall what the EOL song was. Don't tell me! It will be a cool surprise if I can get it.

#47 5 months ago

Think I will load this over the weekend!
