i decided to give the eskimo a go

i need someone to do the speechfiles (i'll use the original face) - as we don't have a railroad in ja2 i intend to give him a motorcycle with a sidecar (probably an old indian or sth like that)

if possible i would prefer a real inuit (most unlikeley) - or someone with a 'cold' accent, if that eskimo was female i'd probably cut the speechfiles from sarah palin :diabolical:

so any volunteers step forward

hans is dutch (according to proedit, and proedit is canon if there is any) - but this is all about volunteers so the hans-hunting continues

However, just like Grunty's accent isn't the correct one, Hans also doesn't have the typical Dutch/English accent.
However, I have the same problem as Xardes. My English accent is not truly Dutch, but I believe you already know this Logisteric.

Did Sirtech get any accent apart from american/english/spanish ones correct (or even close to)?
I can't think of any :headscratch:

The Greenlanders I've spoken to all had a lisp on their s'es, from slight to very pronounced.
Here's an example of a (very) slight lisp but still accented speech: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uEy9T2PCe8

Whenever you go to buy stuff:

The way he says, "Have yourself a look", sounds like a Scot on too many meds.

It is possible that he got medical training in another country of Imperialistic Britain.

just listen to an indian, a pakistani or a scot on bbc for half a minute (they all were in the same public schools) and you see how ridiculous your scot-hypothesis is (he is listed as american btw)

Just the way he says look. It is very distinct. Who says that when Old Howard's parents came to the melting pot that he did not retain some of his families dialect?

he speaks like a pakistani or indian that had an education in a british public school (eton and such) or university (oxford, cambridge and such) - he's a pharmacist - did you ever listen to recording of mohandas gandhi? (the real one not ben kingsley) - even in indian universities they try to get a british accent - it's that typical sound of a well educated guy from british india (that includes what is pakistan and bangladesh nowadays).

if he had a suitable name and face it'll be all okay

Pervez Musharraf was born on August 11, 1943 in Nehar Wali Haveli meaning "House Next to the Canal", situated in Kacha Saad Ullah Mohallah, Daryaganj in Delhi, British India, and stems from a family of politicians. After Musharraf's grandfather, Qazi Mohtashimuddin, retired as the Deputy Collector of Revenue based in Delhi,[1] he acquired Neharwali Haveli in the old walled city of Delhi where Musharraf was born.

The ones that spoke the native tongue died long ago.

Great Grandpa both sides.

Howard sounds like he has a slight Dutch or Scandinavian twang to the anglophone ear but Amerikaan mostly. Parents Amish Maybe? What rides over and above the "where is his damn accent from" is the fact that he sounds as queer as Quentin Crisp and nearly as creepy.

I always thought he was Swedish, again a totally stereo-typical over done accent, just think of the Chef out of Muppets, and you're getting close.

It is interesting to hear what others think of their native accents being lampooned in game, I know a few Aussies balked at Trev and Scully. I did recall contacting Shaun Lyng when playing JA2 early on having to commend him on some of the English voices though, most are once again cliched but certainly was a surprise to hear a punk with martial arts skills and a Brummy accent (Numb.) Shaun seemed to be a little amused that he'd used 'Cheerio' as a greeting rather than a farewell, after I pointed it out. Razz

Is Howard one of the merchants in Balime? If we're talking about the same guy - yes, he's a spot-on spoof of a Swedish accent. It's typically portrayed that way in pop culture and it's hilarous!

If I (for whatever reason) contribute with voice work to a mod I'll try to do it like this even though it's quite a far cry from how we really talk. Smile

Hi all
I'm from Russia, and I also have sum English and German language skills, so if there's a chance for me to participate on the voice thing I would be damn happy)
Not really speaking of the Eskimo, but anyways, if other tasks come up...
