Scorp, I've sent you my edited sounds.

Hope you like them.

Btw. If someone wants me to clean their sounds just sent them to me (.wav or lossless formats only).

yes i like them. if you want, you can also record bad_06 or such... in fact, anybody can contrubute enemy sounds. and if you want to shoot the scorpion a couple of times, i can record some of my own if people want (better than you start shooting the NPC's i'm speaking LOL)

sigma has just doubted the quality of his files. however i think he is working them over again.

@Sigma

you can forward your speeches to porcupine floyd if you're still not happy with them after working them over. or i'll forward them, doesn't matter.

Vicky is also doing some clean ups of voice files. thx a lot for your help people. the sounds bear awesome potential, it would be sad if my lack of knowledge when it comes to sound editing would spoil it.

Try Adobe Audition. It has best noise cleaning stuff on earth. Also, multitrack is great, effects are awesome, it has ASIO support and such.

You can also edit things in spectral view mode which gives you opportunity to clean exact things which aren't visible in waveform display.

i don't know about the feedback you got, but maybe it is worth a try making another request in a part of the forum that is frequented more often.

your audience here is rather limited Wink

hehe nice trailer

we should do something similar for the mod. a longer cut-scene like ja2 engine intro movie. sure ja2 engine would suck for this, but the intro movies are .smk or such

so tons of screenies/ animation plus sound

thats machinima, you take computer game program and do your own story based on it. the product is a kind of animated movie. in a way its mod, only you dont play, you can just watch it.this one will be 15 min long with an original new story. we will compete with it a this year Machinima competition. Its huge.

"Anyone have any ideas about why standard microphones would work so badly? Is it old soundcards with new mics?"

Standard-mics (no-batteries needed) don't boost the signal before it's send.
On mics that do boost, neverready-batteries, can cause similar issues.

The windows sound-settings (for some cards?) allow you set a mic-gain as well.

Some sound-editors have a function called noise-gate.
It eliminates noise, you set a volume-level and only sounds-louder-than will remain.
The result is a telephone-effect, if you overdo this there will be 'gaps'.
Next you can add, (dunno exact) echo, reverb to make the gappy-sample fill up again.
The effect is elimination of static, clicks and other hollow-room-echoish effects.

edit: 'boast' to 'boost' DUH brag-mic
My voice could do: English, German. (Du-tch)

But noise gate is only aplicable if you record sounds with wide dynamic range, and if noise isn't too loud.

I preffer to remove noise using dedicated noise removal tool in Adobe Audition.

It gathers noise profile (you select it) and then removes from file leaving everything else intact.

If recording was done in 16 bits and dynamic range is at last ~ 40 dB it can remove all noise and leave recording at superb quality.

It would be great if people, who record sounds would set effects on card while recording (like noise gate for example).

mod developemnt speed at this point doesn't depend overly much on me. we have a modular development process, and conincidentally, the modules that are the farthest from being finished are beyond my direct control.

is there anything that i can help? i mean with voice acting etc.?

p.s. i heard its getting worse. the horses are mad at scorpion as they are not included. they have therefore bred a special Night-mare, which is trained to breed with Scorpios mode(s), to make it pregnant and unusable... aaaaaaaah Smile

Miami Noon released!

A mobster movie with a storyline, twists and turns, car chases and gun fights, all in the middle of a mob war. Margus, occasional hitman, freshly independent gangster, a supreme getaway driver, is this time driving through hell

these are for sure funny character ideas, but the characters for this mod have been written some time back i'm afraid

THERE ARE STILL REMAINING CHARACTERS TO BE CASTED

for instance german/ austrian accent (not really a necessity, but would be cool) spesking "mad scientist" kind of guy.

also a "cold-blooded killer" type of guy, speaking obviously rather few lines

oh, and 2-3 female characters Wink

there are more, but their scripts/ quests are not yet definitive
