After seeing the near universal hate for the "Shoot the pyramid!" callout in Stargate, I decided to make a custom sound ROM you can burn and use in your game. Vote in the poll and give me an idea of what pyramid callouts you want removed.

#2 8 years ago

You have done this already?
but on the latest CPU rom if you start a game with the right flipper button pressed, doesn't that suppress the callouts?

#3 8 years ago

Can't you hold the flipper button before plunging the first ball to reduce it?

Any word on Pinsound.org getting support for Stargate? I recently played and heard pinsound TZ, GnR, and T2 which were all awesome.

#4 8 years ago

Holding the flipper button only reduces it, he wants to eliminate.

#5 8 years ago

Well if you do manage to remove the call out completely, I would love to have a copy of that sound room. Thanks

I would rather have the movie soundtrack in the game if I had to pick The callouts are annoying at times, but I get used to it. The movie has such great music, I wish it were in the pin.

Bump. Poll is pretty close so far, let's get some more votes!

Quoted from Gov:

I agree with Gov, however, it would be nice to eliminate the extent of the callouts beyond what one gets when they hold the right flipper down. I've had friends of mine play Stargate and they mention that it's pushy or demanding.

I really wish someone could add the film score to the pin!

Correct. Blanking said callout(s) will completely remove the voice recording from the game and you will never hear it during play.

#11 8 years ago

Currently remove all quotes is 2. Looks like I'll remove them all unless we get more votes!

#12 8 years ago

Can you make other adjustments/ insertions? or is removal the only option.

I think the "shoot the pyramid" is almost key to the game identity so shoudl not be entirely removed, just reduced

#13 8 years ago

It appears to be all VOX ADPCM, so to do replacements you will need a similar encoder. I don't know of one, there may be a Winamp plugin or something but usually those are for playback. If people don't want them removed completely just use the flipper button trick.

#14 8 years ago

I'd be happy if the flipper button trick were just turned around, that is, hold the button if you want MORE callouts (i.e. the normal amount).

I never remember to press it...

#15 8 years ago

I actually already made a custom sound ROM with "Shoot the pyramid!" removed:

I don't miss that callout barking at me at all.... I left the other miscellaneous pyramid related callouts in ("in the pyramid, in the pyramid", "get in the pyramid", and "up the middle"), so it gives enough direction without being obnoxious.

Nice! The people have spoken and mine will remove all pyramid callouts completely. I'm kind of surprised by the results myself.

guessing those votes are very squewed by SG haters that are just regurgitating what they have heard from others but have not really put much time on the game?

Most SG lovers dont dispise the callout enough to want it completely removed from what i have seen.

#18 8 years ago

Probably, but players will have 2 choices at least: Matt Osborn's ROM that removes "shoot the pyramid" and mine that removes everything.

#19 8 years ago

I can't wait for option #3 Pinsound board.

Quoted from Whysnow:

Yeah, if it was that bad I'd remember to hold the button!

And a mod to flip the held/not held decision would probably be simply one op code!

Don't want anything removed completely.

So, is it possible to add the film score or is it going to require a Pinsound board (and wait for it to be compatible)?

#22 8 years ago

I love that hobbyists are around to do these sorts of things. Even without owning the game, thank you for doing this.

It would require more time than it's worth, unless you're just die-hard into sequenced music. It would be best to use PinSound or another open source alternative.

Ok. The poor sound in Stargate has kept me from buying one. I really enjoyed the movie and all 3 tv series. If Pinsound eventually supports it, I'll be in the market for one.

Hi Crash, Five years later & now I have a Stargate, Did the Anti-call out ROM happen? I'd buy one if available.
