I am in the process of adding the final finishing touches to my Mame
Cabinet.

Suggestions wanted for ARCADE RELATED Windows StartUp and Exit Sounds.

My thoughts so far:


START UP

Another Visitor, Stay A While, Stay Forever (old C64 game, cannot remeber
the name)

EXIT

"Chicken Fight Like A Robot" (Berzerk)


As you can see from the above, I need more suggestions!

Good, but I'd play, "You were an adequate opponent" or one of the other
lines from Space Fury.

OT, but another cool sound is the Robot from Lost in space (Jack
Johnstone?) saying, "What you have done is wrong". I once set that as
the sound when a program closes and it would cause everyone to stop and
believe they made some sort of error.

Impossible mission. I extracted the sound off a SID file and converted to
WAV and use it in one of my webpages. Hmm, I see it's not working, bloody
JAVA.

Also nice when logging on: "Intruder alert" from Berzerk.

Kinda-sorta what you're after: TRON (the film) sound effects.

Both MCP quotes:

Startup: "I want him on the game grid until he dies playing" (or something
like that - can't remember the exact quote)
Shutdown: "End of line".

Both these exist as WAVs out on the 'Net.

Some of my favorites:

STARTUP

Sinistar: "Beware coward, I live!"
Space Fury: "Ah, another creature for my amusement. Prepare for battle!"

SHUTDOWN

Aliens: "Game over man, game over!"
Sinistar: "Run coward, run, run!"
Pac Man Death

All available as wavs.

I was quite stunned when I saw it the first time. What an animation of
the guy running.

Three other Tron quotes that are suitable:

Hey, hey, hey! It's the big Master Control Program everybody's been
talking about.

I've got a little challenge for you, Sark. A new recruit. He's a tough
case, but I want him treated in the usual manner. Train him for the
games, let him hope for a while, and blow him away.

You'd rather take your chances with ME?

I actually had these at one place I worked: "I hunger..." was my startup
sound, and "I am Sinistar..." as shutdown.

I couldn't get W2K to run them during hiberate in/out, though... feh.

I would had expected you have the Defender start sound
