Hello Markh,

I used to post the updates at least every other day or so but quickly saw that the thread used to loose interest and it be bumped off the forum within a couple of hours. I now Email the updates to the group who is currently making it, but to give you a snap shot :

The RAF Voice pack is coming along great. All voice scripts have been submitted to it's corresponding actors and we already have received 3 voices out of a total of 9.


Best regards,

NTESLA

If you really want to change the voices to english you could always copy and rename the US voice folder /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

We wanted specifically RAF voices, rather than US. Will include Irish, Australian English, Canadian and New Zealander voices, and use RAF language appropriate for the early war period.

NTesla wanted it for a film he's making. Extreme_one will tie it in with his RAF campaign.

Like this?

Jones: Morning, Squadron Leader.

Idle: What-ho, Squiffy.

Jones: How was it?

Idle: Top-hole. Bally Jerry, pranged his kite right in the how's-your-father; hairy blighter, dicky-birded, feathered back on his sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harpers and caught his can in the Bertie.

Jones: Er, I'm afraid I don't quite follow you, Squadron Leader.

Idle: It's perfectly ordinary banter, Squiffy. Bally Jerry, pranged his kite right in the how's-your-father; hairy blighter, dicky-birded, feathered back on his sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harpers and caught his can in the Bertie.

Jones: No, I'm just not understanding banter at all well today. Give us it slower.

Idle: Banter's not the same if you say it slower, Squiffy.

Jones: Hold on then -- Wingco! -- just bend an ear to the Squadron Leader's banter for a sec, would you?

Chapman: Can do.

Jones: Jolly good. Fire away.

Idle: Bally Jerry... (he goes through it all again)

Chapman: No, I don't understand that banter at all.

Idle: Something up with my banter, chaps?


AIR RAID SIRENS

(Enter Palin, out of breath)


Palin: Bunch of monkeys on the ceiling, sir! Grab your egg-and-fours and let's get the bacon delivered!

Chapman (to Idle): Do *you* understand that?

Idle: No -- I didn't get a word of it.

Chapman: Sorry, old man, we don't understand your banter.

Palin: You know -- bally tenpenny ones dropping in the custard!


(no reaction)


Palin: Um -- Charlie choppers chucking a handful!

Chapman: No no -- sorry.

Jones: Say it slower, old chap.

Palin: Slower *banter*, sir?

Chapman: Ra-ther.

Palin: Um -- sausage squad up the blue end?

Idle: No, still don't get it.

Palin: Um -- cabbage crates coming over the briny?

The others: No, no.

Found this little gem of a 'real ' voice recording of a Lancaster crew over Berlin - lots of 'Bloody Good Show', 'Right oh boys' and so on - just in case you're interested like. Links at the bottom of the page at:

DeadEyes,
Im awfully sorry but your banter is all wrong. A chap would never say 'me' before 'old chap' unless his name was **** Van **** trying to sound like a cockney trying to sound posh!

I'm looking forward to this voice pack (as a Canadian) and appreciate the work done on it. However, are you going to have some "quality control" with it or just accept people's submissions based on their posting here saying they will do it? I mean, what it the guy that volunteers does his parts and they don't really sound good? Will you have the balls to say, "sorry chap, we'll be using someone else"?

I don't say this to be mean, only practical. I know you don't want to alienate someone who volunteers their time and interest but will you be at all concerned with quality?

Cheers

"sorry chap, we'll be using
- someone else"?

You can't use Chap as a an unmodified direct term of address. It strongly collocates with 'old' - 'sorry old chap'. It It should however be unmodified in the plural - 'Sorry chaps'.

Whereas 'chap' was a general term of familiar address among the middle and upper classes, 'type' has interest as being specifically RAF slang: 'He's a good type', He's a ropey type'. It wouldn't be used as a form of direct address in the singular, But OK in the plural 'you types need to get your finger out'

It's a linguistic minefield :-)

For all those aspiring to chapdom, I recommend The Chap's highly civilised website (http://www.thechapmagazine.com/index2.html)

I'll draw your question to the attention of NTesla.

Very good question Prik. Yes, I do check for quality and let me tell you, so far the work that I have received is very professionally made (4 voices out of 9 as of today). Considering that many do not have a "home studio" they do sound very well done just as they are, before me giving it a WW2 Radio Transmission effect. So far all whom have submitted their hard work have voluteered to re-record it again if I do think it needs to. I know that, in general, people who fly simulators are more mature about it than any other genre in computer games so to assure you, all who are in the RAF voice team is taking this seriously and giving their 110% effort and professionalism. I am very pleased with the work and know that many of you will like the result.

In regards to Australians? Yes, we have one as well as New Zealanders, South Africans, Irish, English and Canadians.

About alot of "Tally Ho' there are some for you folks.



Best and kindest regards,

NTESLA
