Just wanted to provide an update. Although we haven't posted in a while, this project is still underway. It's just two of us and we're working on it constantly in between both our 9-5's and for me personally, my own music. There are potentially 3k+ script vocals to be bookmarked, then selected, edited and replaced, alongside matching up to JP movie(s) lines wherever possible. We're also working on custom music and vocal overlays to existing FX and music. So you can imagine the amount of time needed to do this the right way. We're being meticulous about covering all bases, so that in the end we've got a fully comprehensive, highest quality, exceeding JP fan expectations SPK that's also scalable to later Stern code releases. No ETA yet at this time, but the finished product will be amazing. Thanks for being patient!

Cant wait! Hope there is a pro version too!

Thank you so much for the update and all of your hard work. This is the only reason I go to Pinside much at all lately is to see if there are any posts on this thread!!

Cheers!!

Yeah sorry that my update is basically no update . I don't think either of us realized at first what an undertaking this is. However it hasn't swayed our determination. We're exercising (while learning about) all kinds of technologies that are helping us overcome hurdles in the process. It's been quite a ride so far. I think I've taught myself more about regex than I ever wanted to know and hawkmoon is doing some nutso audio cleanup magic and implementing algorithms that I bet most audio folks have no clue about. One minor thing in the grand scheme of things that keeps stalling us is that after each code release we have to re-map our thousands of bookmarks we've already entered manually to any changes made by Stern. Hawk already mediated that adaptation hurdle through his wizardry after the last one though.
I look forward to providing an actual ETA but it could be a while before we can confidently do so. It's all gonna be magical in the end as we originally intended.

I'm pretty sure the way we're going about it it will be adaptable to the Pro code but no promises yet! In the end it's all about Stern's script/sound mappings for the Pro vs LE/Prem firmware. If they do/include all the same sound mappings for all it should work for us to make a Pro spk the way we're going about it. Haven't been able to confirm that yet but makes sense to consider.

So excited about this! Thanks so much for all your hard work on this project guys!
I just got my premium last week and can’t wait for some actual sound clips from the movie!!

#108 3 months ago

Definitely what this game needs, call outs are not 'bad' but with a theme so iconic (for me anyways) not what I hear in my head thats for sure!

#109 87 days ago

New premium owner here. Thank you for all the work you are putting in. Excited to see the final product.

#110 86 days ago

Any chance we can get the work you have gotten into the game so far? And once you have finished we can reinstall the final code?

Pinball browser is bricked for ver. .97 so it'll be a bit until any edits to the new code can happen.

I did a full install, now I know just to do a quick in the future. I lost the call outs.

AFAIK a quick install still wipes the callouts? There were also a bunch of new callouts in the last update so I imagine it would scramble the sound request numbers.

Got my premium on order, hope to hear something soon when shipping, but this new sound code will be a must for sure!

Looking forward to hearing about the ETA of final work!

Following! I plan on getting a premium later this year

Im okay with the main play music, but think each multi ball mode should at least have some more intense music to them and from the movies. Raptor MB could be "The Raptors Appear" from Lost World JP Soundtrack, Chaos MB could be "Clash of Extinction from JP3 or "Rescuing Sarah" from Lost World JP2 and T-Rex MB could be "T-Rex Rescue & Finale" or "Incident At Isla Nublar" from JP1 Maybe the guys working on this project could give these a listen and see what they think and if they could be added to the game for these modes.

Amy updates on progress? A killer custom audio mix will blow the roof off of this game!

#121 33 days ago

I can’t comment on the bigger project but for the time being I’m going to revisit the latest code and update the custom one I released a few months ago. Hoping to do so next week.

I’m anxiously awaiting the release of this as well.

Is there a version with the custom callouts for 1.0 on the Pro?

#125 21 days ago

Ok, got my NIB premium, put in a pinwoofer kit with powered sub and powered 5 1/4” backbox speakers. Now need this custom soundtrack! Any updates or ETA would be awesome.

#126 21 days ago

Set up my Pro today. The first time I heard a Samuel Jackson line done in someone else's voice, I wondered if I could modify the files. I was happy to stumble across this thread. I have several friends with ProTools, and I have the Blu-Ray. If you guys need any help, I'm willing.

I think the modders have given up on this unfortunately.

I don't believe they've given up and certainly hope that they haven't as this game screams for this type of audio upgrade. From what I've gathered on Pinside, the developer for pinbrowser is readying a new release of the software which will allow for this type of mod as well as the ability to swap video files/assets which hasn't been done before. Once the new release is available, then folks will be able to access the audio files and work on a new audio package.

After poking around, it looks like there was a topper available for a while for this machine. Is anyone still making one, or maybe have a 3D printing file?

The voice actor callouts are annoying at first... And then you get used to it (got my game end September). I have tried some custom callouts on the earlier code version and really didn't like it. The quality was good. However it was movie quotes for the sake of movie quotes. Just because it's a memorable movie quote doesn't make it a good pinball quote, especially if it's unrelated to game play or with characters that aren't in the game. But that's just me.

Good movie quotes: "Life... finds a way", "When you gotta go, you gotta go". Funny in the movie. Totally out of context during game play. Especially from a character that's not in the game (Dr Malcom). I find that it ruins the immersive nature of the game.

We have not given up. We're currently blocked from moving forward due to a Pinball Browser bug. We can't even open the sounds tab for firmware versions past 0.96 until that's fixed / the new PBrowser build is released.

Any time frame ??

The creator of pinball browser is working on a larger update before releasing the fix for the sounds tab. The sound bug seemed somewhat trivial to fix but they are currently working on video replacement(!) for spike 2 systems. I can't wait to see what will be done with the option to edit video!

UPDATE: (Both good and bad)

BAD: I've lost my cohort who was editing down all the actor/vocal replacements. Therefore, it's now on me to take that on. Replacing the 3k+ actors' voice scripts is not going to be feasible, there simply isn't enough content and/or appropriate replacements from the movies. AKA you'll have to live with many of the existing Stern actors voices once this is done.

GOOD:
- The new movie vocals will be clean as possible. I am literally working from a custom mix of the JP1 actors' vocal mics, not just a 5.1 DVD rip of the center channel.

- Since the latest PBrowser fix, I have managed realign and re-bookmark every single line in the game for 1.00. I at least now know where and what every line is in order to be able to replace the sound files for those I can. (I was stalled since 0.96)

- Beyond vocals, I am working with another amazing individual to replace much of the music with live, fully orchestrated tracks instead. We've got about 10 ready this far where applicable and those changes are just amazing IMO.

At this time I'm focused on getting the music files swapped to a point where I can create a beta firmware to get feedback from you guys since a) the music is far less of an undertaking to implement vs. the actors/lines and b) I want to ensure that the general audio manipulation doesn't have hiccups in certain people's set ups. Getting feedback on the music alone will allow me to automate audio manipulation for the forthcoming vocal replacements.

Lots of work to be done, but I felt the need to post some kind of positive-ish update for all awaiting this.

Since the audio is going to include actors from the old movie, the translite (which does the same) would go well with it......is his attempted point.....I think.
