Voice acting

Post by sonnyd83 » 06 Jan 2018 16:52

Hi there. I am working on a level right now which has quite a lot of robot voices in it - I used a website called fromtexttospeech.com to convert some text into speech which gives the player clues what to do as well where the character talks to other characters.
I was wondering if anyone is able to do voice acting for this game instead of using the robot voices at all, because it sounds much better and gives it a more personal touch...

There are a couple of characters which it would be quite good for:
A German female general who speaks for about 71 seconds
A Polish male prisoner of war who speaks twice for about 21 seconds and 3 seconds

I was going to also ask about voice acting for the main character Marcia L Croft but am unsure as there's quite a bit if it, and she'd have to sound very British (how they used to speak in the 40s)

Off-topic, but still matters to me:

Dave, please do NOT use any of my objects any further. Guess you can perfectly live without them. I don't wish to be connected to anything you doing. Hope you can be respectful to my decision.
Best regards.

Yes of course I'll respect your decision. I'll remove 3 of your objects I was using.

Please, stop it already and let's keep the community a happy enough place. There's too much going on in the world anyway. I me mine, I me mine, I me mine. Sorry, I'm just not in the mood, not wanting to be offensive.

I hate I Me Mine! It's the last song recorded by the Beatles, when they had already decided to separate and to leave the Abbey Road Studios an happy enough place for someone else.

You are never offensive, Jorge. I know, every community is a house of cards, so fragile that nobody should dare to blow their own thoughts aloud.

But to get back in-topic... this Dave's request was for The Black Diamond Part 1 or for some other game not released yet?

So far I know is that Dave finished his level a while ago.
But if you want more or another answer, isn't it better to ask the builder himself?
Oops, I did it again... Image

Thanks. :)

Is I Me Mine actually the last song the Beatles recorded as a band? The reason I ask is (and I'm not checking or anything) their last album was Abbey Road even though Let it Be was published later on because George Martin wasn't willing to produce the album and it ended being produced by Phil Spector. Let it Be (the album) is relatively mediocre in fact (although some of the songs recorded during the sessions are actually interesting - thinking of Don't Let me Down, Old Brown Shoe and You Know My Name, for instance; maybe they're not all from the sessions but maybe they are, at least they were published in the same epoch) while Abbey Road is pretty good in general even though it's miles (or kilometres) away from anything they'd done since Revolver.

Sorry for the off-topic everyone. :D

:yes: on january 3, 1970 (I love Beatles. I'd be glad to chat about them but it'd be a very huge off topic here :D )

I'll do, thank you. I hope I did not raise too much dust with my boots.

EDIT:

Uh! No need to ask anymore... I think I found the answer by myself:
I've just finished to play a previous and very controversial game from Dave.
A divisive masterpiece, I'd say. That's surely the bone of contention.
I can only imagine how offensive it may have been for some players to kill the final boss. :D
But I'm with you, Dave! I love provocative artists!
I want to say it publicly.
