About This File

This project used Shoend's and Wools's work as a base to build on, so huge credit to them for their hard work. The main objective was to replace all legacy sound effects (all except the dedicated callouts, unless you could hire the original cast...). This makes game progression more dynamic and rewarding, bringing back a great deal of the feel you get with newer pins. Clocking in at around 150 hours of editing, here's a short list of what's new.

Around 150 new sound effects (and some voice lines).
About 15 new music tracks and snippets from the original soundtrack, making the game feel fresh again.
Big effort into making mode progression and multiballs more dynamic and rewarding.

Gone are the days of the horny elk and stupid bounce VUK sound effects, and Destroy the Ring has become a truly psychological challenge. Finally, we have proper tilt warning sounds instead of the flimsy beep sounds, and if you would tilt out, there are now several new insulting sounds and voice lines, making you feel more ashamed than ever.


There might still be some small niggles to work out, especially some volume balancing so I expect to release an update or 2 in the future.

What's New in Version 2.0   See changelog


NEW version. Main features

  • Fixed installer. Now it will install correctly when zip file is added to a clean USB drive (my bad). If you want the custom boot sound, add the boot.ogg into the audio folder.
  • Cleaned most voice files with AI from background noise. The result is a much cleaner sound experience and adds the possibility to use voice lines that earlier were impossible because of background music.
  • Added many new voice lines (potatoes!?), some music clips, for a more complete experience.
  • A lot of fine-tuning to existing audio files. Adjusting volume levels and timings etc.

So this was probably what the 1.0 was supposed to be but with such a vast library of files, the big picture usually shows itself when playing extensively. Please enjoy!
