Hello, has anyone out there added different music to their Iron Maiden pin? I love this game but the music is just not my thing at all. Would be awesome like what Cleland did for Walking Dead

#2 2 years ago

Right there with ya'. Great machine but you really gotta' be a fan of Maiden for the music...

#3 2 years ago

What’s wrong with Iron Maiden’s music?

Asking for a friend

#4 2 years ago

I don’t like the band, but so far it’s perfect pinball music. I added a sub, and set music attenuation in the menu to 30. So now it’s background music. While the sfx and call outs are full volume..

#5 2 years ago

Swap it out with some Alan Parsons and I'd be onboard.

#6 2 years ago

I would like to know how to put other Iron Maiden songs in. The band has so many other songs I prefer from other albums.
Is there a way?

You need a program called Pinball Browser and a little practice...

I'll be watching this thread. I'm hoping that by the time I get to own an IMDN, there will be a complete music swap out available. My suggestions would be Ozzie/Sabbath, Hendrix, Deep Purple and maybe a couple others in a mix.

#9 2 years ago

Its like taking a Harley and making it sound like a rice burner...... Uuuum no F'n way.

#10 2 years ago

This pin could sure use some Bread

#11 2 years ago

Bread is entirely too heavy for a pinball machine. How about some PP&M?

#12 2 years ago

Ozzy/Sabath would be so good!

#13 2 years ago

It's really easy to do, if anyone wants a custom mix lmk if you have a pro, premium or le and what songs you want and I can do it.

#14 2 years ago

Woohooo!!!!
Cleland is making me a custom music setup with of course I will get bashed hard as hell but I honestly don't care, half Jethro Tull and half Michael Jackson!!!! Thank you Cleland!!!!

I think a mix of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest could be pretty cool, living after midnight, some heads are gonna roll, etc.

I don't get it. I don't want a Kiss machine because I'm not a big Kiss fan. I don't want an Aerosmith pin for the same reason. Unless you can afford to buy every game that comes out why not wait for the next cool one?

Elwin has only designed one pin...

#21 2 years ago

Exactly about Elwin, this game plays so damn good and it's finally different for a change!!!

I couldn't agree more. I have an AC/DC and Iron Maiden LE because I like both bands and the games are actually pretty great. There are a lot of machines people love but have no appeal to me because of the Theme. I haven't imagined re theming TOTAN or Cirque Voltair or Medieval Madness.
Maybe they should buy an Archer since it is supposed to be what the game design was based off.

#23 1 year ago

If anyone wants custom music for their Maiden PM me, I have changed all mine over and it works super nice

#24 1 year ago

Here is the list of what I converted for my Iron Maiden Pro

Rime of Mariner to Bush/Machinehead
Hallowed be thy name to Marilyn Manson/Beautiful people
Flight of Icarus to Cake/Warpigs cover
Can I play madness to Black Sabbath/Paranoid
Aces High to Cake/Distance
2 mins midnight to White Zombie/Thunder kiss 65
The Trooper to Pantera/Cowboys from hell
Wasted Years to Beck/Gamma ray
Number of the Beast to Black sabbath/Sweet Leaf
Powerless to Lenny Kravitz/Fly Away
Fear the dark to Smiths/Bigmouth Strikes again
Run to the hills to Silversun Pickups/The Pit

Game is so much fun for me now!!!

#25 1 year ago

Did you or can you change the song selection screen or does it still say the original songs?

I get everyone has different opinions but I don't agree with changing the music. It's part of the package. If you don't like it, don't buy it! Simple.

#28 1 year ago

The song selection screen is still the same, the reason I changed the music is I love the gameplay and layout alot! Just music wasn't the greatest, for me and my family this is a way better experience for us now

Thanks Crispin, thinking of doing an all Cake version too! They are one of my favorites

#30 1 year ago

I changed every song to Elvis Presley's "in the ghetto" and now my auto plunger works flawlessly! After my sock between the flippers mod, I've achieved "can I play with your penis" mode 3 times!

Why mod any machines at all then, are you against that? No you aren't.

It's not like they're suggesting that every IMDN no longer plays Iron Maiden's music. Their *one game* will have different music. You're never going to play theirs.

They are in fact supporting Stern and Keith Elwin by purchasing the game. With any luck, that means we may get to see Stern release more Elwin designs in the future...which to me it's a breath of fresh air after all this cut-and-paste bs they've frequently been churning out over the past couple years.

Hell, the op didn't start this thread to ask whether or not he should change the music. He wants to, and is looking for a solution (which he already appears to have found!). I'm not surprised it drew criticism, but it's his game to do whatever he wants with. It's a cool, unique game regardless what the soundtrack is. If it enhances his enjoyment to have different music playing, why shouldn't he do so?

#33 1 year ago

There are people that voluntarily want to hear Lenny Kravitz's 'Fly Away'?

I don't really see this as a mod. More like a alteration that just shouldn't be! This is just my opinion. If it makes someone happy with their game, so be it. Just not something I would do.

#35 1 year ago

My Iron Maiden Premium plays all Megadeth songs, and it fits perfect for this pin. I'd be happy to list the songs if anyone wants to know.

Same way I feel aboot 90% of mods But it's just another easily reversible "thing" you add to the game.

Thank you for this write up! It is an amazing game and Keith has lots of different ideas for sure which is what we all need!! I have a few people hitting me up to help with changing their music as well which I am helping if it makes their game experience better!

My pin now plays the following Megadeth songs:

Train of Consequences (Can I Play With Madness)
The World Needs A Hero (Aces High)
The Disintegrators & Kick the Chair (Fear of the Dark)
Sweating Bullets, Foreclosure of a Dream, & Architecture of Aggression (Rime of the Ancient Mariner)
Skin O' My Teeth & Symphony of Destruction (Hallowed be thy Name)
She-Wolf (Flight of Icarus)
Seven (Wasted Years)
High Speed Dirt (Number of the Beast)
Have Cool Will Travel (Run to the Hills)
Dread and the Fugitive Mind (Trooper)
Ashes In Your Mouth (2 Minutes to Midnight)
1000 Times Goodbye (Powerslave)

So for the longer songs I added multiple songs, you just have to kick butt on those games to hear all the songs in their entirety

And it just so happens almost none of the Rust in Peace songs fit the right length, a shame as that's one of my all time favorite metal albums but I do love the songs I added and it really does fit well IMO.

For songs not long enough just merge the song 2 times together and add it, I did this for a few of mine and works great

Awesome song choices profgrif !! And if you decide to go all Cake (one of my favorite bands), sign me up please

Looking for some help with a few questions related to customizing Maiden's music using Pinball Browser...

Loving owing this game but thinking about a slight change in one of the tracks. It looks like Powerslave is about the only song not used in a game mode but is that true?

Is it also possible to load more than one song as a choice? I thought this was possible and that the game would pick one of the choices at random.

I've bought the amazing Spitfire mod from Rod's Mods and mounted it on the left ramp. Normally a right ramp shot plays the fly-by sound fx but this should be easy to swap right? I think I just need to find the corresponding fx and swap them over.

Last question, is it possible to change the song selection gfx in Pinball Browser? I can view all of the videos but can't see where images are stored.

Cheers!

Powerslave is used in mummy multiball.

I believe that's only for PinSound boards, which can't be used in Stern Spike games. Pinball Broswer can only do an exact 1-for-1 song replacement of the same length (or shorter, I guess).

Not yet. I hope that functionality can be added.

Cool thanks for the replies. I honestly never realised Powerslave was used in MMB!

It would still be cool to have this song as a multiple choice if that's possible. I thought you could do this as I've seen in PB that it sometimes has several scrips under a sound request. But maybe you can only do this if the scripts already exist.

To switch the left/right ramps sounds you need to swap the following:

Sound# 62 - 0x126 = l/ramp fx
Sound# 63 - 0x118 = r/ramp plane fx

Note: you'll need to trim the plane sound so the duration fits

I also added Moonchild to the playlist, that intro synth and initial build up fit the game perfectly!

Thanks for posting. I have no idea what you mean though. ... lol. Definitely too advanced for me.
