I've been working on a sound package for X-Men (LE specifically). I first started off just working on Beast and Storm, but it then soon moved to several of the other characters and some of the mode music. I thought I'd share what I've been working on, if anyone wanted to try it out. The main source voices are from The Animated Series (TAS) from the 90s, as well as some voice clips from video games (MvC3 and some others). If you'd like to try it out shoot me a PM. I will likely still be adding/adjusting things in the future, but it's pretty good as is. When there's a final version, I'll update this thread.

If there i enough demand for a Pro version, I can work on that as well.

*sorry about the sniffles in the video* The video sounds best with headphones, ear buds, or robust speakers.

Link doesn't work?

Love the X-Men cartoon theme song as the main music. I may have to try this when I finish shopping my LE.

Very nice. Great update.

Worked on both my phone and laptop.

Wow, great work! People have been talking about this for a long time. While I was not one who had a problem with the voices a lot of others did. This is one of my stern's I wish I had back. This could help the value on resales .

After watching the video it made me think of a suggestion.

Give us a woman's voice that says "Shoot again" when you get the Dazzler shoot again animation. It makes no sense that she skates by...shows up with mic in hand and we get gruff Wolvie growling "Shoot Again!". I still shake my head wondering what they were thinking when making this game. I remember going through other SAM games for awhile and looking for a female "Shoot Again" and all I found was Chole on 24 and a female voice on TRON (which sounded to processed / computerized). Really, almost any female voice (that is supposed to sound like Dazzler) saying "shoot again" should be an improvement.

I could do that. Just need to find one that says it. If you have any places where I can find a sound clip let me know. I think there are 3 different clips loaded for variety, but I'm sure just one will be fine.

Love the classical, such an unused form of music in pinball and it works perfectly. OG Xmen cartoon main track is great, Sounds good.

The code I did has this

#11 11 days ago

Excellent work so far! I wasn't able to hear the BEAST callouts clearly like the others. Maybe it was just the recording or my phone, but the others stood out more prominently.

+1 vote for DAZZLER replacement on the SHOOT AGAIN. That's the one callout that actually bothers me. You could grab a TRON ROM or 24 ROM and extract the sound byte with pinball browser (older version) and it would be easy to insert in your XMEN.

#12 11 days ago

Nice job and super cool of you to offer it up! Having done this a few times, I know how much work it can be. Kudos!

I'll try this out later today. I'm also looking at Text-to-Speech options as well.

The Beast call outs weren't the best quality. That's one of the voices that I'll have to go back in to boost. His voice is generally "soft" and has a deeper tone to it, so it won't stand out as prominently as something that is more high pitched.

#17 11 days ago

Nice job! I'd be interested in a pro version. You should consider a color dmd for your LE - dots turned out good for this one...

Sounds good. I have a few games I want ColorDMD for. This will be the first when I can get the funds for them.

#19 11 days ago

Color DMD looks best on cartoon games imo. Looks perfect for XMen.

Chloe...it sounds better than I remember it being when I tried it in my game. It makes way more sense than Wolvie saying it, but I would think another choice would be better (which is why I didn't add the Chloe back in my later tries of tinkering with the sounds)....text to speech possible or even asking someone you know to do it.

....or a voice actress on fiver:

This is some great work! So many of the original voices and music felt meh from the start...

#23 9 days ago

As mentioned in the other post I did this a year or so ago but my rip volume was too low. If there's anything I can help with let me know.

I changed the Wolverine multiball to Powergloves version of the X-Men theme. That probably wouldn't work since you have the animated theme in the game.
For ice man I used a karaoke version of ice ice baby. It's fantastic.

#24 9 days ago

Send me your code, I can take a look.
Any option is better than the original.

#25 9 days ago

Hope the people that have it are enjoying it. There's still some sound balancing to do, plus I want to change out Gambit and his music along with Iceman, (though I do like the original). I'll grab that Shoot Again clip, or maybe get a friend to do it for me.

#26 7 days ago

This seems like an awesome project (and really makes me put getting an LE to the top of my list). Can't wait to play the final product sometime.

#27 7 days ago

FatPanda ,I would love to try this out, can you send me the file? Thanks In advance!

Just a slight update, I think I've replaced all of the callouts and music that I wanted to. Shout out to acaciolo for letting me use his "shoot again" sound bite for the game. Once I've played it enough and get a really good feel of sound balance, I'll throw it out there for people that want to use it.

#30 4 days ago

I think my neighbors are as excited as I am to get the new callouts, thanks FP!

#31 2 days ago

Hey all. Thanks for all the requests for the sound package. I will be putting up a link for the finished version some time later this week. I want to make sure it all sounds good before I send out another revision. I'll update the initial first post when it's ready.

#32 2 days ago

I'm in for the PRO Version as well - if it will be created

#33 2 days ago

I will be glad to install the Pro version too

#34 2 days ago

Very cool, HUGE fan of the animated series. I don't have an X-men LE (would like to) but if I did I would put this in the game ASAP.

Nice work sir.

#35 1 day ago

I can work on a PRO version once the LE version is ready. It shouldn't be too bad to replace the sound files on it once I get the LE version finalized.

#36 1 day ago

It's time consuming i know, i worked on IM, TWD and Met codes and it's a lot of time but this pin deserves it, the code is great. I sold mine because of callouts that takes on my nerve, but i would like to buy one now.
If you are interested by my TWD code (Pro), send me a pm. I changed some musics with Stoner/Rock and added Negan callouts only, it changes the mood of the game. I was proud of it i think you will like it.
I enjoy music you put on your code it fits very well.

Is the link above the updated one? I'm gonna give it a go
