Quoted from yuriijos:
I want to change a few songs using the pinball browser and have a few questions besides how you actually do it. Once you replace a track, does it automatically change places in the game that used that track. For example at the end of the game I believe it plays Unforgiven, so if you change that song will it also change that part in the game or do you have to replace that too? If you change Fade To Black will it also change it in crank it up? I think I really want to incorporate Shortest Straw, No Remorse, and Damage Inc. if I can. Anybody have experience with any of these changes? Thanks.
You find the longest request of the song and replace it. All instances of the song will be replaced, including your example of Unforgiven at the end of the game. Same with Fade to Black in CIU.
However, it won't replace James saying, "Fade to Black" when the mode starts or any other call outs related to the song you replaced. You can change the text in the song choice menu, but any animations that have the old song title will remain, (there's a way to change those, too, but that's above my payscale ).
The one thing you can't change is the time slot for the original song. For example, if Sad But True plays for 5:23, the replacement song must be 5:23. If it's shorter, there will be dead air until 5:23 is up, and then it will start over. If it's longer, it will suddenly cut off to start over. You can edit your replacement songs by fading out to make them fit, and it will provide a smooth transition when the song starts over. If a song is too short, you can edit in a guitar solo or something from another song as "filler." I use Audacity to do all that editing.
Shortest Straw is a great replacement for Unforgiven because they are both almost exactly the same length. The riff at the end of the game sounds better, as well.
A lot of Metallica songs, like Damage Inc. have long, slow intros that you may want to consider editing. Damage Inc. doesn't get going until about 1:20. That's a long time of playing pinball without really hearing any music.
