oh, there are 6 different male voices. some variety might be good. i was even thinking to have foreign languages. If a mod plays, say, in ww2 and your enemies would curse german

or they'd curse spanish in arulco?

there's room for experimenting

BAD0 is one voice
BAD1 is the second one and soon

BAD7 and BAD8 are the girls

we can pick numbers now or later, doesn't matter

well, i would probably volunteer.

i have a fairly good microphone here and a quite good headset also.
recording software would be audacity.

i could try to make some samples, if the scorpion would tell me the lines, which format tu use and the desired character of the voices.

i can do male english and german (or english with german accent) quite well. although, i have never tried such voice acting stuff.

I can do male English and Polish.

I've got pretty nice mic too, and I'm using Adobe Audition for recording and mixing things.

Also, send me an e-main with texts and I'll start working on them Wink

borut: no text files for this

see the files as above: bad0_curse: a small curseword, preferably in differnet laguages so we can simulate any kind of enemies in various mods (i don't knwo what mauser is up to)

bad0_hit1 and 2 is a sound of pain, when they take bullest or grenades

bad0_die is the sound the enemy makes when dying "aaarrrggghhhh" or "aua mein Leeeeeeben" if you want to mak an RTCW inspired mod" Wink

bad0_laugh is the what the enemy says when killing a militia, merc, bloodcats or a teammate. It doesn't necessarily have to be a laughing. i coudl also imagine something like "burn in hell" or whatever bruce-wilis-movie like cynic commentary you can come up with

bad0_curse is for instance when the enemy tossed a grenade but it didn't ignite, use some swearwords there

i suggest you use numbers according to the time of your posting, so porcupine floyd would be number 0, boru number 1 mauser number 2

mauser, porcupine floyd: just feel free to experiment with langauges, accents and voicing

the only paramter to be observed very closely is how often could you listen to it. You'll hear those lines every once in a while so they should be generic in a certain way

you don't expect me to write texts for 5 lines, do you?

oh, and you can ingame test your wor simply by pasting the correctly named .wavs into your data/battlesnds folder (or data-1.13/battlesnds)but notice that they are picked at random so it migth take some time until you've heard all your lines in the game

Scorpion I'll do some of the female ones if you like once everything is up and fixed. Today is the day I take the stupid box in to be looked at so will keep you informed. Email me anything you want done and I'll have a look at it no worries. It just might take a few days for it to get done. Smile

Hi Vicky

hope it works out with your machine.

take a look at my posting above. it's 5 lines, for you it's the 5 records beginning with "bad7_"

since they are more like "sounds" rather than "speeches" they don't have subtitles and i didn't write lines for "aaaarrrrgggghhhh" or "ouch" or whatever these utterances are

i'll try to be patient enough to wait for your files. It is easy to be patient in the swiss alps... in fact it's more like a requirement Wink

borout:

i'm not responsible if the police is being called by your neighbors. check article 5578b_113 of our contract Wink

what is a machinima?

sure, allthough it's off topic, you can make a thread here since there are many people here that have a little bit experience with that by now Wink

Vicky

great. So there's the speeches as posted aove for you. Plus i promised you another speech role. Right. script is on the way to you

inform me on your progress with the editor if you're still trying to get that beast working

Ok, I got some, but it's raw collection which needs editing. However there are many arrrghhh, ouch, awww, and such sounds and I'd like to send them to you, so we can together choose those that fit best.
I would then edit and denoise them.

Any idea on how could I send them to you? (mail perhaps)

yes, mail as in my profile, vladtheempalor@gmx.ch is one account that has enough space.

variety is good. if you get tired of the first ones, you can use alternative ones.

scorpio, you dont know what machinima is? strange. (I did not know only till yesterday). Its in a way similar to what you do. You take the graphic program of, in this case Vice City GTA. You then use it, to make your own (in most cases short) computer generated movie. Voila!

P.s. I had to search Internets (TM Colbert) for an hour to understand what that means...

Sorry I got sidetracked on this Scorp, looks like you got your Texan though. Hope I didn't let you down too much, and if do still need voices let me know. Although Texan is about the only one I can do.

P.S. Pliskin, record a voice for seeing the buzzards eating corpses... "You gonna eat that?"

That was my plan Smile

they are nice. you had various records in one file so i remember.

if you have the time, can you make all of them in .wav and name them as outlined above? even if we're not using all of them in the mod, other modmakers might use other records, or you can alternate your custom enemy battlesounds files.

for me it was hard to rule out any of the records... depending on context of a mod and who the enemy is supposed to represent, the sounds may differ

if you have less time, chose the ones you like most yourself, we can still let the community test them and have feedback. Does that sound okay?

Sure, I'll name it as you asked, and what for rest - I'll put simple names as "Curse" or "Hit", "Die" etc.

So it will be easier to find them.

Btw. how loud they should be?

0 dB, -3dB, -6dB or what?

It's better to make all of sounds on same level.

yes i agree, all on the same level is good.
loudness is an important factor. i'll provide you some of the original sounds so you can adjust the volume to them, okay?

Hi Scorpion,

Do you have any more voices left? That you need? I am from northern maine originally and have lived in south virginia for the last 20 years, so I have an intersting dialect now. I do a mean southern hillbilly accent now. Come to think of thats the way I sound all the time. Razz

Anyway, if your still looking for some voices let me know and I'll take a crack at it.

Smile

sometimes it's just not immediately clear what character to assign. Because kaiden just got the second redneck guy some postings ago

yes, i hear all those voices in my head "hurry up with your goddman mod" and "we shall follow you and curse you in your nightmares if we encounter more than 5 bugs in the entire mooooooodddddddd"


really spooky that is

I've got a few more voices up my sleeve too, like a Billy Bob Thornton from the movie where he was a retarded psycho. And a bad Arnold imitation. I just can't believe how much trouble I've had with microphones!!!! I had to finish the last batch with my brother's mic. Anyone have any ideas about why standard microphones would work so badly? Is it old soundcards with new mics? :whoknows:

this is thx to the help of you people.

I'm sending some samples to you. In addition to the fact that one's own voice always sounds ridiculous when one hears it himself, I have doubts about the general quality and sound level. So check them out.
