As some are aware, I have been working with a few other pinsiders and come up with a pretty cool (I think) sound package for The Big Lebowski. The purpose of this thread is to gather further suggestions moving forward. I am not interested in doing one off versions for different people (way too much work!), but definitely open to feedback from the larger group on potential changes going forward. Everyone has different musical tastes, but hoping we can make further modifications that stay close to the movie/theme...

Also, some shoutouts to some key contributors:

KSP1138 - For the original randomization idea. We used his script as the baseline.
timlah79 - For additional music enhancements, additions, and callouts!
ray-dude - For helping with the distribution and hosting.

I still need to figure out how to get this on my game....i.e. someone that is smarter than me doing it so I don't screw something up.
So excited to get this on mine eventually!

PM me. Worst case I can send you a drive that is plug and play.

Has anything changed in the last 3 months that would make it worth sending my module back for updating?

Quoted from Concretehardt:

Most definitely! The refinement and additional variety have been a big step forward I think.

#6 1 year ago

Has this been updated with new songs? I’m not sure I have this version with the fellow Pinsider collaborations. How can I upgrade ?

#7 1 year ago
Quoted from ray-dude:

I’m guessing there are still only three songs available when the game is turned on and those songs are random and cannot be changed unless the game is restarted?

Yeah, not much we can do about that since they are loaded into memory by the DP code. We did add the ability to randomize rug mode songs, Nihilist Showdown, and some callouts though

#10 1 year ago

I’ll chime…

This is a massive improvement for the game.

#11 1 year ago

I think I have the older version. May need to try the newest.

Shoot me a PM for instructions

#14 1 year ago

This is definitely the most stable this mod has been and most seem happy with it. It is tough since everyone has different musical taste (which I understand), but I am also not interested in customizing images for individuals. So there are really 3 things I have outstanding:

1. The Gambler. Some love it and 1 person keeps messaging me saying they can't stand it. What say you? Should it stay or go? I personally like it, but bias.

2. Grouping. Does it make sense to group songs together? Currently on startup we randomize within each song category (Hotel Calif, Oye Como Va, Run through), but it wouldn't be that hard to group them...e.g. I could re-organized so that all the song #1s played or #2s, etc. on start up. A good example would be to make the original tracks all #1 do that if #1 hit, you would get all three of those songs for that session. OR do we keep as is and everything is a surprise each power up?

3. Any other song swaps? Would love to know!

Thanks!

#15 1 year ago

1. No opinion on this. Doesn't bother me.
2. I like the randomness of the songs.
3. I don't like that the sound effect for the scoop eject sounds like a spinner. Seems off. Can that be changed?

#16 1 year ago

I’m not a fan of the gambler but It’s not bad just a little slow.

3. I don't like that the sound effect for the scoop eject sounds like a spinner. Seems off. Can that be changed?

this is intentional and matters with the latest rule set. If you have not achieved Mystery, the scoop counts as several spins. Get at least level 1 Mystery and it won’t make the sound.

#18 1 year ago

Any chance you guys will still be doing this towards Q4 of 2023? I'd love to dude up the sounds.

#19 1 year ago
Quoted from digitaldocc:

For sure. Just shoot me a PM. I have a DIY option (free + a couple supplies) if you are willing to invest a few minutes OR I can image it for you.

1. Gambler is cool, keep!
2. I like the randomness of the songs.

You guys are awesome. Thank you. Now I just need my TBL to get made.

#22 1 year ago

OK - so based on feedback, I think I am going to leave the latest version (v6) alone for a bit. Played it a lot over the past couple weeks and I am pretty happy with where it is at. Please keep the feedback coming in this thread!

#23 1 year ago

Appreciate all you guys did with this and excited for whatever final polish might be coming.

Also just FYI to others, I learned from talking to these folks that there is a special challenge getting a song that works well with wizard mode, given the length of time that it plays.

Excited to see what can be done with that wizard mode though. Now that Koen made the cool feature to start a one ball wizard mode, there are LOTS of times that awful grating music makes me want to punch the speakers

Yes a challenge for sure but I just surpassed that hurdle today. Stay tuned. Dude Abides replacements are coming soon. Still fine tuning.

Thanks to those who contributed to the project. The variety and added songs were a big improvement to an already awesome pin!

This is going to be soooo cool...stay tuned!

#27 1 year ago

Please fill me in. I have a TBL on order and hope to have it within the next months. What exactly is this sound mod. Is it something I can purchase or is it software that can ben loaded onto the pc?

1 week later
#28 1 year ago

Somebody let me know when the final image is ready. I was tinkering with a way to be able to toggle between randomizing the music and defined playlists. And having the modded music stored on a mounted USB thumb drive instead of the internal drive itself, to make changing songs easier.

I will let you know. Still a few tweaks left!

Correction: “it really ties the game together”

#32 1 year ago

FYI for anyone who isn't sure when it comes to upgrading code with your modded HD: As jyeakley pointed out here in the main TBL thread when 1.10 came out, there is no issue in following the standard upgrade process. In other words, you can also upgrade to 1.11 without issue.

#33 1 year ago

OK - version 7 is coming soon. We just started putting this thing through the ringer and will be distributing to a few folks for beta in the next week or so to work out any kinks....

Lots of changes coming. Highlights:

- timlah79 killed it and figured out the Dude Abides wizard mode. He did some amazing work and weaved in Placiere and an instrumental Viva Las Vegas that fits perfectly. He even figured out how to replicate the drugged effect to overlay.

- I downloaded higher quality audio files for a couple songs that weren't the absolute highest quality.

- I re-cut all of the Hotel California and Running through the Jungle tracks so that the intro lengths matched the DP stock lengths. This fixes the issue where the outro would loop and repeat since they were too short.

- Tim added some additional callouts for the "Let's go bowling" ("That creep can roll man")

- Tim added another bowling loop (Tammy)

- Tim added another track to "Female Form" rug mode (Lujon)

- Tim added another track to "See What Happens" (Branded Theme Song)

- I swapped out Babba 'O Riley for Let it Ride (BTO). Babba is a great song, but doesn't fit as nicely.

- I leveled all the songs to be the same volume across the board. This allows a more consistent experience.

- I bumped the music volume to 55% from the stock 40%

There is probably more I missed, but we have been busy. Right now I have the script also randomizing the Dude Abides Wizard music between Stock and Tim's. So on power up, you will get one or the other. This keeps it fresh and fun!

More to come on the release. Big thanks to @timlah79, excellent work!

We are hoping that after this is pushed out, we can let it settle for a bit. Cheers Dudes!

"Fuck it, let's go bowling" is one I've heard. I think a couple of others, but haven't been writing them down.

Ah yes, the callouts. I think the only one is the one you mention "Eh, Fuck it Dude, let's go bowling" and "WTF is up with this guy, who is he?" on the jackpot. I suppose I can just remove those completely. I have no way of knowing when Family Mode is enabled, so better to error on the safe side...

This is Lebowski, screw family mode or removing anything. This game was meant to swear!

My cousin’s 4-yr-old son called my nephew a “dumb fuck” the other day. Out of the mouths of babes…
I think kids nowadays can handle the TBL callouts.

I think for now at least, I am going to leave them in. I have gotten a flurry of PMs asking to leave them and I really don't want to maintain 2 different images...

Note that Car Mode Select now has a second alternative, Tumbling Tumbleweeds.

#48 1 year ago

For me, I don't care too much if my own kids hear it, but I like to be careful when they have friends over as not every parent operates by the same guidelines. I just told them to leave the game off. Same rule applies to TWD w/ Cleland's sound package
