    I'm hoping the pinball community will get behind me in this. I LOVE the custom sound packages that fellow collectors have created for TWD (cleland & milhouse), IM tweaks, and other games. Brilliant!! To me, it makes the games more immersive especially in games where actors were used instead of original voices or original movie scores are used (POTC).

    I'd like to use this thread as a "catch all" repository to links for collectors who are willing to share their custom sound project creations for others. If you don't want to have a link tied to you for whatever reason, I will create a dropbox or like account and house them (will figure something out). It would just be great to have one place to find these rather than digging through threads, and threads, and threads.

    Let me address common objections up front:

    - "Just learn to use pinball browser yourself - lazy"

    Answer: Some of us are really strapped for time, whether sick family members, traveling for our jobs to make ends meat, etc. Others aren't technically or creatively gifted in these apps. One could say the same thing for mods. Many in community get it and want to share to enrich the pinball hobby. If you don't, I respect your position even if it's ignorant.

    - "Let's not rock the boat. Stern or others may not like it. Let it happen in the shadows"

    Answer: I get the caution. But it's happening. Just like mods and new trans lights. It's a hobby. People customize in hobbies. So long as Stern pays its license fees and sells pinball games, aftermarket don't think they care. Look at virtual pinball tables all out there of Stern games. We know Gary's stance on that and he allows the hobby to enjoy pinball. And there is a easy way to find those tables as well. So long as it promotes sales and pinball I doubt Stern really has an issue.

    - "There is a lot of work that goes into custom pinball sounds. How dare you ask for it for free. Do it yourself" (I sort of want to quote the guy who keeps saying this)

    Answer: I understand and completely respect the first part of this point. It is a lot of work. I'd be happy to make a quiet donation on the side to a fellow collector in exchange for a rocking custom sound package. I believe many others would too. Creating a sales model for selling custom sounds, that could create a problem I don't want to get in here (i.e. copyrights). Right now, if you're willing to share for others to enjoy, if others care to "tip you" for a beer in exchange behind the scenes, and become legendary (cleland is in my eyes - never would have bought TWD without) in the hobby that's entirely your decision. I hope as a community we'd be willing to share and spread the enjoyment factor.

    I hope others support this idea. The creativity of some of you is awesome.

    I too am looking for TWD Pro sound mods, would love Eskaybee or KPGs versions for the pro if anyone has done this.

    Here's a link to the thread for TWD LE/Premium. Don't think Pro is available.

    Cleland and Millhouse have variances that are discussed in the following thread. Off the top of my head, Millhouse added some different music where Cleland kept it more pure to Stern.
