Ok, ALL the new voices are now up! This includes the original 12, plus TWENTY more! And that 20 includes ALL the NPC voices from BG2 - all 16 NPCs, both Edwin voices, and Annah from Planescape. I have also thrown in another custom one (a sneaky, greedy dwarf, damn good fun!) and another movie one - where would Estel be without his Undomiel? Best of all, Allyx has now worked the Undomiel voice to remove the movie soundtrack so it integrates much better. Estel to follow in due time. The various 'amatuer' voices I got from a couple places on the net, credit where its due - http://www.merrymeet.com:16080/voxpopuli/ http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Corridor/7261/ http://www.sorcerers.net/Games/BG2/index_editors6.php And all credit to their authors, who are generally included in the folders of the specific voices so you can see who they are. Also Gaear sent over a couple, (all prepared no less) thanks very much. We currently have 22 in the game and there are room for 64, so with my new ones thats 54 voices all up. Since the customs ones have generally been made for new NPCs in BG or wherever, they have slightly more 'attitude' than characters that the player is meant to directly have total control over. Frankly, thats a good thing! So they say interesting things like 'whats my motivation?' instead of 'yes sir', or 'forget it, its in the dirt' instead of 'my pack is full'. But (since we all know these get old pretty kwik) they also have a healthy abundance of normal, BRIEF responses. And the BG2 ones have HEAPS more 'yes' responses, 10-12 usually rather than the standard 5 (for ToEE) so they are a bit more interactive too. O and some of them have potraits in them too I have also done the voices of the NPCs 'Darley and Scorpp' as requested, so they are now available for PCs. They come with their control files integrated. I will leave the final 8 for others to add as they like. Note: if you have downloaded the original 12 and now want the new ones, you MUST reload the 'control files' zip. You must! It has changed! ------------------------------------- INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS ------------------------------------- Point the extract thing for 'control_files.zip' at Program Files\Atari\Temple of Elemental Evil and press go. It should put files in the following places (consider this the change log): pcvoice.mes in Temple of Elemental Evil\data\mes pcvoice.mes (a different one) in Temple of Elemental Evil\data\rules pcvoice folder in Temple of Elemental Evil\data\mes pcvoice folder (another one) in Temple of Elemental Evil\data\sound\Speech and then the three packs can be unzipped into this pcvoice folder. ------------------ KNOWN BUGS: ------------------ None really, though I have included voice files for many things that are erratic in ToEE and have been removed from normal PC vocals: particularly the comments on entering new areas (the Moathouse, the Deklo grove etc). So if you enter the church of St Cuthbert or the Weaver's house and hear, "this is the centre of all evil", just enjoy ;-). I am werking on a fix for the whole game in this respect and thought it was better to ship these files in hope of the fix, than to achieve the fix and have to get everyone to load the files again. If this really bothers you, just recruit an NPC and they will trump aything the PC has to say, as always. The 'usual' dialogue options, "Yes sir", "no sir", "my pack is full", "I seem to have died" etc all work fine. Also, being amateur files, the volume sometimes gets a bit inconsistent. I know how to change the volume on the ambient sounds and background music, so if it is possible to change it for individual PCs I'll find it and do something. Otherwise, don't use the 'small town lass' if you think it will really annoy you. The others you will only notice inconsistency in the volume if you really try. ---------------- LOCATIONS ---------------- The voices are packed in 3 zips, Custom Voices, BG male and BG female.
