Not like that, but I had to get you in here somehow http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Has anyone got a Russian wife/girlfriend or somesuch who'd consider voicing for a speech pack?

I wasn't thinking an entire RU folder, just a single pilot/wingman (wing-person?) to go with the one we have now. Sort of to replicate those mixed squadrons. I'd trim the required number of samples down so there wouldn't be too many. I'd also do all the editing if you could just supply the raw recordings. Any format will do.

I'm also looking for someone who could help source likely talent to do a female WAAF controller http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif.

Later on, who knows? Maybe even a US speech pack that dosen't sound like the kids from Happy Days http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif .

You'd think that speech modding of individual pilot folders would be more widespread, considering the indifferent quality of the default ones. People seem to think they'd need to do an entire nationality, when really just a new character would be enough if there were a bunch of people doing it.

Speech-modding is probably the one big untapped cash cow for third party add ons.

I'd certainly pay to download replacements for the Sgt. Schultz ground controller and Hysterical Hans wingman in the DE folder. The Russian cookie-monster wants to take the biscuits out of his mouth. And as for that US folder....I sort of thought our trans-Pacific cousins would have had the man power to have done something about it by now. I'll see if I can assemble some Australian and Brit actors to impersonate y'all http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

The Australian pack is worse:

"Thas is whambet chew, I godat...", said with the same intonation as when you're talking with a large degree of disintrest, such as when discussing the washing of dishes.

I mean, bloody hell, why didn't they go all out and use a Kiwi accent and call them Beer or Kangaroo? The accents are probably the most annoying, as they sound like a cross between a certain region of New South Wales, Central Victorian bogans and New Zealanders! I don't use the RAAF squadrons I'm that embarassed and insulted by it.

I found a lot of radio static samples last night at freesound.iua.upf.edu. I'm hoping to edit the JA folder stuff to make them sound like poor quality radio signals. Should be realistic/interesting.

I want RAF guys to sound like Michal Caine, Robert Shaw, and Sean Connery.

I want Germans to sound like.....Robert Shaw (aka col Kurtz in battle of the bulge), The real Adolf Galland (heard him speak once), and Hardy Kruger (I know he's S African, but he plays Jerry so well).

I want ruskies to sound like anyone but that guy gets excited and sounds like he's saying "scoobie doo, scooby ooby doo doo".

I find the Russian guy (is it the same person for every single speech file?) sounds to me like the chef from the Muppet Show.

I spent last night adding static and crackle to one of the IJ pilots files. Still a lot to do, but it sounds real good to faintly hear them responding to rejoin formation as if they are far away etc.

It would be a great help. I tried to pull something like this together about 2 years ago. It just didn't work for me, maybe you'll have better luck. It would be great, as we could add two other Russian squadrons, the 586th IAP and 587th (later 125th GvBAP) The 588 NBAP (later 46th GvNBAP) can go in now, as they had no radios in their aircraft. But there were also many squadrons who had women in them. The 296 IAP had the most famous female aces: "Katya" Budanova and "Lilya" Litvyak.

Man, that is SO true Bearcat, but then again, maybe the Russians didnt want to share either....

Then again, if they had known any better, the communists could have taken over the world (or at least the male portions of it) real quick.

I never get tired of the German death scream though "[indecipherable German] ERYHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

Probably the thing that bugs me most, more even than the terrible speech actors, is that you hear pilots ordering planes that have exploded back to base. Also, I hear pilots, USAAF at least, never say "Bail Out" but use euphemism always, like "Augered" "Caterpillared" "Going over", that true?
