I need to go to one of these places which have a ring register and buy something.
Also, the ATM at the Woodforest National Bank which is inside the walmart I work at makes the windows 98 exclamation noise.
An ATM machine. Running Windows 98.

Or they just happen to have used the sound effects from it for an entirely unrelated reason. Either way.

This is a great way to increase sales - just make your cash register make a classic video game sound, and hoards of sorry nostalgia addicts will buy things they don't need just to hear it. =P

LOL! I have the ring noise play whenever I get IMs in Messenger, too! :D

My sign-in noise is the classic Sonic 1-up theme, however.

There's a Supermarket in my town that has the Ring SFX noise for ringing things up. Drives me a bit nuts, since I expect a one-up. =P

(And yes, its not a sort-of soundlike, its not even just close, its dead on to the Sonic Advance noise. Agreeing with a previous poster =P )

EDIT: Also to note, the supermarket here isn't part of any particular chain, its just a (fairly large) local store. =P

Dammit, all of this makes me want to go to Mobil. I think there's one somewhere around where I live. I'll have to check it out.

Forget what I said before. v.png I need to see if I have a Mobil anywhere near where I live, just so I can hear the Ring sound. *Puts on To Do list before I die* No where else seems to have that sound, which is why I didn't believe it at first.

There's a gas station here that has a register that does it. It just sounds TOO similar to be a coincidence. v.png

Just to put it to rest, it is the Sonic 1/2/3K Ring noise. Its used at almost all Valeros and I'd imagine a lot of other similarly owned gas stations.

Also, if a user hits the wrong key on such a register, the "uh oh" sound from worms plays.

That is all.

One of our Mobile's got this register system earlier this year too. I was going to post about it then, but I figured I'd get bitched at over making a stupi topic. :D

Thank God that concern has never come over me.

*remember's mai waifu topic*

Anywho, I caught the noise at another local gas station. I think I'm gonna try to find the make of the registers and see if anything pops up.

The Circle K over by my work does it as well. It makes other videogame sounds as well.

Alright, I'm confused. We are talking about 2 different sounds here.

I believe the "cash register sound" is a common sound and the team thought it was a good sound effect to use for the game...which is why it's a sound that apart of most cash registers.

As for just the ring sound by itself, I don't have any explanation.

Who is talking about the "cash register sound"? We're talking about cash registers that make the ring noise when you purchase things.

I imagine custom register sounds are fairly common. For example, one GameStop out here has the Mario life gain noise when a sale is completed, along with various sounds such as mario gaining and losing a mushroom when the drawer is open. although, I have to be honest, the osunds would drive me crazy after a few days.
