I've got my hands on Wizardry 8, another title made by Sir-Tech, and it has some pretty decent character dialogues that can be used for new voices for JA2 characters. As I've noticed there are much more custom faces made than sound files so here is one converted from Wiz 8:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/bolaxawa73kaozg/voiceset_ja2.rar

This for a female merc, an IMP/MERC/RPC type character because I didn't add lines for AIM. The voice actors in W8 are very similiar to JA2 so it should fit your character nicely if you require a custom voicepack. There's about a dozen of those that could be imported to JA2 methinks. All files needed just to copy/paste and instructions included.

EDIT: Another female voicepack. This one has a kind of eastern (I think?) accent.

Hi merc05,

Really nice work! thumbs up Always glad to hear new voice packs.

Would you allow using your voice pack in a mod (Vengeance: Reloaded) for a female RPC eventually?

Of course you would get the credit for your work!


Best regards; Schein...

Schein got to you before me, but I am also interested in using your voicepack for Arulco Vacations! I am currently working on a female voicepack myself, but want to eventually have 5 male and 5 female voices available for IMPs.

Yes, use any way you want. Also, should there be anyone else, no need to ask for permission guys, it's written in the readme to use any way you like ;) .

Well, it's been almost 2 years since I visited Bear's Pit cheeky , and I see some really serious progress was made here. Got some catching up to do. I've spent quite some time updating my game files but now I can play again happy .

No, neither did I. It was just my way of expressing that a new voicepack is a valuable addition to the game, and that we rushed to used it!

Thanks again for the new voicepack -- it's a great addition to the game. I have a technical question to help me when my voicepack is ready to put into the game -- what modification goes into changing the *.EDT file?

Use an EDT editor, there's a heap to choose from in Kermi's repository. Mega editor, Batman's EDT editor, it's mostly a case of just typing new text to match your corresponding speech lines. EDT should follow the same naming convention (usually a character number) as your speaking character.

Thank you! I'll do that. When you say "mostly a case . . ." what else is there? I'm loathe to touch things I don't comprehend fully because it usually means I spend days frustratingly trying to find what I did wrong.

I was being a little ambiguous as I was trying to think what else is involved to get a new voice pack in, but if you follow the naming conventions the same as previous mercs you should be fine. There are a number of EDT files, not just those for speech elsewhere in the game, but you'll be wanting to add some (or edit existing ones) in the MercEdt folder.

Hi!
Inspired by Merc05 works i made another custom personality (One of the eccentric from wizardry 8)
I made it for myself but it turned to be better than expected so i decided to share it with you guys.
She is calm, weird and tends to attribute all to fate
favorite quote "I guess destiny have some nasty things in store for all of us!"

I haven't full tested it so if it got problems let me know,
i hope you like it.

I've added these voicesets to the trunk in GameDir r2357.



Saren threw his head back and screamed in impotent fury, before falling to his throne, head in his claws, trembling in horrified disbelief.

Then he heard a faint chime as Sovereign subscribed to her ECHO channel.

If you want, you can donate to me. This will not affect how and what I code, and I will not code specific features in return. I will be thankful though.

That's so cool!
in the meantime i have done a new voiceset and fixed/added few missing sentences on previous ones.
I'll put all togheter and upload the archive as soon as possible.

Here is the kind personality
She is a bit naive person that believe Arulco more like an adventure than a dangerous war place, well she will soon find out reality or maybe not.

So I tried to add those voices +one other into my game, but I'm having some issues.
After messing about with some mods, the previously working voices no longer work.

Problem is, I don't know why, since they all worked before.
The only relevant error logs I could find was these:

[25.3829] : ERROR in SoundStartStream(): Unknown file format ('MERCEDT\192.EDT')
[30.9162] : ERROR in SoundStartStream(): Unknown file format ('MERCEDT\193.EDT')

*** EDIT ***

I the interest of providing additional details:

Voices stopped working after installing AFS v4.51 on top of the 7609+AI bugfix.

Voice on the ID previously assigned to the male profile 4 works in full.
Voices on ID's previously assigned to the male profiles 5, 6 and 7 work only for the IMP preview quote, any lines spoken in the game itself have text only.
Voice on the 254 ID does not play the audio at all, but it does have the text.

*** EDIT ***

Issue resolved.

TableData/Sounds/SoundsProfiles.xml required modification to support the new sound profiles.

Empty entries such as this:

<PROFILE>
<uiIndex>254</uiIndex>
<Name></Name>
<EnabledSound>0</EnabledSound>
</PROFILE>

Required filling out to something like this this:

<PROFILE>
<uiIndex>254</uiIndex>
<Name>PGlady8</Name>
<EnabledSound>1</EnabledSound>
</PROFILE>

The relevant table has many holes in the version of AFS I downloaded.
