What do you think about the polish speech in AEP? I'm Polish and I think it is terrible- zero emotions even when hit or going down.Hopeless.It should be full of emotions like the Russian or German sounds- they are really cool, I'm thinking about editing the polish speeches with my friends.

Something to be looked into for sure but there are many other things that should be addressed first. If you want to go ahead and do a polish sound pack or something along those lines that would be great!

Same for me, I'm a french canadian and some of the french speeches are incomprehensible. The best exemple is Break_left.wav - Break_Right.wav.

In some French actor folders, Check.wav, Over.wav, Anybody.wav and Attention.wav are playing no sound at all. I doubt they will change the speeches in the next patch. Most of the french speeches are good tough.

I think other issues need to be addressed before the Polish samples are re-recorded for better emotional content. In addition to the problems already listed:

*The Japanese currently speak German.

*The British and Americans currently have the same voice clips set, which switches between an American accent and a British accent at random.

EMitton,

I agree, there should be first a Japanese Voice Pack before a re-done Polish but if they are willing then its good!

Anyways, if you want British then download Extreme_One and Poymando's B.o.B campaigns that includes my RAF Commonwealth Voice pack.

Enjoy!

OK, I owe you some explanations, on behalf of JanuszB:

JanuszB used a professional recording studio, but since the voice pack was to be released for free, he couldn't use too much studio's and actors' time (time=$$$), as they did it "after hours". Therefore the audio quality is good, but voice acting suffers. We, Sturmovik fans, could do this ourselves, and voice acting could be better, but the audio quality would certainly be inferior (everybody uses his own mick).

Digitally altering the voice files didn't prove satisfactory results. Re-recording is possible, but who is gonna pay for it?

I can imagine it would be quite hard to get the right feeling in the roecordings, after all the men recording them selves werent being shot at or fighting for their lives

Does it have to be crystal clear? In my aviation radio experience, the voices are NEVER clear. I somehow do not suppose that WWII radios were of better technological standard than today's.

Clear recordings help to make a good speechpack.
And if you manage to get the people together you can do a lot in a 'small studio'.
I am sure there are loads of facilities around to handle this. Don't think about professional studios, but also about bands or places where bands practice. I'm sure you can rent equipment there for only a few bucks.

Hardest thing is to get good actors.

We are making a Dutch speechpack, and everyone recorded at home.
A bit annoying while mixing is that the soundlevel of the recordings for some actors were not optimal. But with some prerecordings to test you can help people to get things better.
We tried to add some emotion (but it is hard since it also has to fit together with the callsigns) and we added a big load of radio noise. Sometimes it's hard to understand the things said, but it sure adds to the atmosphere.

For who is interested, here are the results so far:

I think we succeeded reasonably in making a nice, intresting and 'emotional' speechpack. We tried to put as much feeling into it as possible but, sometimes that just sounds funny. The end result is worth listening to.

I think the hardest part for us was, finding enough suitable actors.
