I tried out Dobberman's beta version of Assaulted Empire, and didn't care for the TextAloudMP3 voice. So I set to work and made new sound files with AT&T's Natural Voice engine. The most realistic voice ever generated by a computer.

I managed to find some unused web space on my telephone company's server (even though I haven't used dial-up for ages, my old account still exists). I've uploaded the new ZIP file, and it will be available for download from there until Dobberman downloads it and posts it on efmods or he doesn't like it and tells me to stop, whichever comes first.

Downloading now, hope it's worth it. You should work on assaulted empire and do the voices, it would save Dobberman some time, so he only had to do maps, and you do the voices. Grin

Unforunately all the voices are the same, because they are all men. I only have two voices at my disposal: a man and a woman.

Well, that was cool, Dobberman should be proud of what you did! Wink Grin . And now to mention problems which have probably come up before now but still...

One of the security men (second one) didn't leave the transporter room.

The other security man got stuck walking by garren as she walked into the cargo transporter room.

Lt. Jackson therefore walked freely into the brig - weird eh?

The man in the cargo bay, which is very hard to find mind you, just stopped and stood there.

I killed Garren by shooting all the barrels as she walked through them LOL!

I ran in and out of the turbolift, and then I was stopped outside of the turbolift, and I said "Bridge" and I couldn't move - I was in the corridor!

Even better than Textaloud, you should get people to speak the lines (eg. us) and you could get a sound editor or something, and use our voices in game Grin Grin Wink Smile

I've encountered a few of those problems as well. They aren't my fault, though. The same problems occur in Dobberman's version as well.

I have a good sound editor, so we could do real voices if we wanted to. How many of us have a microphone?

I have a microphone, and a webcam, and a digital camera, and.................. (actually, my family does, but it's mainly my computer!) I forgot about this topic for a while there. I thought I might have missed something here - it just went quiet here.

Sorry for not posting, I forgot, I tried it (and remembered how buggy AE is Grin) and it's good. I may put it in as a patch or wait till I update the maps. It's good though, thanks! Happy

My "company" (my friends and I) will probably be doing voices for Colony 7. We could do some for you as well.

Somebody complained about the Who's Online button, so Dobberman went and changed the other ones as well.

Well, I changed the buttons 2 nights ago IIRC. And this spam topic has had enough beating, Sorry Scooter.
