Yes I can. It will be insane, but 10 MB per e-mail should do. Just send first mail and wait for an hour if you won't get it back as I don't know if mail quota is exactly 10 MB or something lower (9,5 or something).

Also, you need to split this one file to 10 MB or anything my e-mail account can get.

I didn't noticed something:

Scorpion:
There is no sense in encoding shitty quality wav files to ogg and then decoding them to wav to clean them up and then encode them back to ogg.

It's a double loss of quality due to lossy character of ogg files (however they are way better than mp3).

We need a fast and flexible host to maintain those files.

it's true. we'd have to find a better way. i'll have to ask around if somebody can upload it to a good server from which all sound editors can download to clean up the sound

if i send the .wav files before compressed to ogg, it would be WAY more than 80 megabytes, so that couldn't really work

i'll ask around

You could try at last using .7z for those files.

Or FLAC.

But FLACing everything and un-FLAC-ing would take a while too.

nope, cannot do.
last thing, (which i could not do) was to do some voices again. but as hard as i tried, i could not find the text (yeah, i do have ja edit).

so, any voice acting yes, and i can call some of my contacts too if they are interested.

p.s.
dont worry about files sizes, i finally have the broadband Smile))))))))

Yo.

I'm coming in pretty late in this, but I'm willing to volunteer if you still need a voice.

Young (19 years old) Canadian anglophone male voice here, but I can try to fake something else if necessary.

I did some dramatic stuff in high school, so I probably won't be totally unconvincing.

Hey Mauser..

If you save the files as .wav and then send them on.. once they have been edited to perfection (hahaha) we will convert them to .ogg (i think).

Basically any recording programme is fine. A useful one is audacity which is free to download from their website.. I think there is a link to it earier on this thread.

It is very easy to make files louder so that is not a problem. The main thing is to make files as clear as possible Smile but really have fun with it!

Scorp is a real slave driver so he likely has more orders for you! Very Happy

Guys.

If you don't know how to avoid clipping (to apply a gain to audio file not extending 0 dB) just don't do it.

If audio file is too quiet it's not a problem to make it louder, but if it's too loud and thus clipping - it makes things more complicated.

Basically - Listen to your recordings and look at a graph. If they are barely distinguishable from noise - up the mic volume a bit. If the graphical display of a sound (waveform) fits a middle of the range - it's good (best for further editing).

I'm doing very little voices now as I don't have free time. Exams and lots of anthropology paperwork to do. But at the start of February I'll have plenty of free time to spare so I will finally be able to finish this editing.

Hope that isn't much of a problem.

Btw. Vicky how about you, any progress?

it seems i've overlooked your posting. sorry


hi SoD

welcome to the board

yes, there's still voices to be recorded. you'll get messages from me. If at one point the recording voices thing will ever be finished, i'll certainly proclaim it loud enough Wink

so nobody need to hesitate. also there's always the possibility to overwrite new characters, we've not hit the maximum number (and we won't)

Click on the poster's name and choose 'Send a PM' to send a personal message within this board (without the need for email, if you need to send private things).
On the earlier version of this board this (PM) was only allowed for the board-managers, but it works for all now (at least it did for me).

good samples. *thumbup*

i gotta say, however, that we're currently only casting for NPC's... only once we have these npc's recorded we can have a look weather to add more new playable characters

so everybody volunteering now: it's npc's only ATM

Are you still casting for voices?
And if you are.
Could anyone help me out with the list of things that a character needs to be able to say?
Then i can start right away.
Oh and what is the format you need it in?

Hey Scorp.

Whoever did the Character Chrissy.. well, very darn good job. Also the profile design is just as professional as the recording.

If you ever finish this game (past beta, if that's your interest) You got my vote, for that guy.


Also, I'm a bit concerned about the volume levels, of the characters of the game. For Example Irina.. can't hear her at all. It really is annoying. So, I'm volunteering to take all speech files that are too low to hear, and amplify them using Audacity.


Thanks, Scorp. Loving this mod! couple glitches... but I think I'll survive.

Hello Thompson! I'm sorry to rain on your parade, but... judging from 1) the fact that this thread has been dead for nearly 3 years, 2) the giant red "BANNED" label under his name, and 3) the fact that his last post on this board was from over six months ago according to his profile, I'm guessing it's somewhat unlikely that he'll be getting back to you anytime soon.

I'd give you more information, but I'm relatively new to this board, so I don't have any details on his current status or even why he was banned.

Hi there!

I am Spanish, speak English quite OK and can try talking with different accents. I could give voice to more than one character if you so wish.

Please PM me if you are still looking for voice actors. Any way I can contribute to JA2 community is fine to me Smile

I think guys are still looking for more voice actors for 'Shady Job' among others, get in touch there or drop a message to Inshy or Logisteric.
