Tthey need to throw a Pink Floyd "Dark Side of the Moon" wizard mode in the game. That would awesome!

#2 8 years ago

That would be awesome, but I'm guessing the pink floyd license could be more expensive than the woz

Maybe keith could put it in a an easter egg mode

#3 8 years ago

That would be the most amazing thing ever in a pin. Incredible idea. Maybe there can be a ROM modification at some point with the licensing.

Call me clueless, but I don't get it.

If you play dark side of the moon with woz the movie the music goes along with the movie

pinwiz was all: If you play dark side of the moon with woz the movie the music goes along with the movie

up until the pink floyd album is over, then it switches to Metallica or Slayer on my bootleg VHS I watched it on.

Alrighty then.

Explanation: if you start the Dark Side of the Moon CD at the second lion roar (mgm movies) at the beginning of the Wizard Of Oz and mute the sound on the movie, the Dark Side soundtrack correlates with the events in the movie. Really quite cool.

For instance, if you time the start of the cd just right with the lion roar at the beginning of the MGM lion roar, when Dorothy opens the door to the "colored" part of the film, the song Money starts up.

Really cool.

This has been brought up around fifty times on the JJP forum and elsewhere over the past year or so. I seriously doubt it'll be in there, but Keith, Jack and everyone else are well aware of the idea.

#10 8 years ago

I would probably buy one if they had that on it.

#11 8 years ago

If it was, it would almost make me want one....almost. I'm holding out for Jacks next pin.

#12 8 years ago

Not sure how this would make it past the people who have to approve things according to the License agreement.

Jonny, so next you're going to tell us that if you sneeze and fart at the same time you don't die?

The only reason I'd buy a WOZ NIB.

I hear it's shipping soon.

Has anyone done this yet?

I'm working on it. Just got my 75th anniversary WOZ and I grew up on drugs, computers, and have the software talent, knowledge, team, and vision to pull it off. I've started memorizing which Pink Floyd sound bytes I want to cut to replace WOZ audio files. Going to do drive cloning so I can hot swap WOZ and my Dark Rainbow edition. I'd YouTube it if successful. I love music far more than pinball and software is my air

We shall see. Determined for the fun of it.

Thus far:

1. Bought 60g solid state hard drive off Amazon
2. Bought simplistic cheapest drive cloner off Amazon
3. Successfully cloned ruby red's hard drive and plugged in clone into pinball machine. It works
4. If all else fails, I have a backup of my machines hard drive
5. A simple read of the hard drive reveals all file names and folders are fully named and structured for easy navigation
6. System files appear unencrypted while WoZ source files are encrypted

To try:
1. Get hard drive running on a Virtual Machine or even a Mac can boot the drive holding option at startup and selecting cloned drive
2. Copy a few encrypted files and attempt using tool based brute force file cracking
2.1 Use the well known KaliLinux for its penetration tests
2.2 Use zcat process for its bruteforce compression reverse piping abilities
2.2.1 The key will be to accurately replicate the compression and encryption process that was originally used
2.2.2 A terminal command will look like following to unencrypted and untarball a file $ zcat foobar.bin | bzcat | zcat | tar xO | tar xO | bzcat | tar xO | zcat | file - /dev/stdin: ASCII text
3. Attempt installation of Linux tools or my Node code to interject itself into a running game to read memory and such

That's it for now. Chime in at will. Again, some people love to add hardware and tinker with their machines physically and I want to have that same enjoyment but at a software level. That's why I'm doing this, for the fun of it

I've tried this before with a couple of Pinsiders a few years ago. We got pretty far! We swapped out some video and sound files, and we got the environment to install in a VM, but not boot. This is before asset encryption. I have attached a PDF guide for setting up the VM in VMware.

Curious, have you been able to make any progress? At this point we know what software/dongle is used to encrypt the content files. Intercepting the game loader when it decrypts on boot is probably easiest.

Not sure how I missed this thread before. Good luck!
