I think real voice acting is the way to go, there's no way we can get that kind of emphasis or excitement out of a text to speech program.

... any volunteers?

xbolt, maybe?

I'll try it at some point, but right now I'm too busy in maps to worry about stuff like that.

When I get a good mic I'd be happy to give it a shot.

I tried making a few recordings, I can't do it, my voice isn't deep or strong enough. I also did a funny one with an accent, which would be hilarious in game. I might put that one in just for laughs.

If you'd like to hear my attempts, send me a pm. I didn't do all of the words, just the invasion stuff.

This might be harder than I thought

I could try doing one or two, messing around with 'em in my programs, and see how they come out. No guarantees, though.

if you want to try improving mine, I'll send you the files.


Although you might be better off just recording your own...

Curious: The breakfast item in tucq on pickup made a cereal chewing sound. Should we bring that back? maybe paired with a "SUPERCHARGED BREAKFAST" announcement.

The newest version has the crunching sound in it  ;)

and, yeah, we'll have to change the announcer voice, "SOULSPHERE!" doesn't make much sense

I think I'm just going to remove the RAGE! sound. It's not necessary with the song playing.

I tried. I really did. I suck. Man, its hard to get it sounding exactly right and cool,while at the same time still being able to tell what it says. Blegh.

I know... I think somebody would need voice training to be a good announcer. It's the same set of muscles that would make you a good singer.

Would any singers like to give it a try?

Heres a funny one. Just for kicks, although you could use it.
