The next release is still far in the future, and the people who download the snapshots are the people who know about the missing text anyhow. So fixing this isn't urgent. That said, if it's up to me, the next release will have the PC text without speech for the missing lines.

I think that's all anyone really ever wanted to hear.

Thanks Meep! Grin

awesome! this is great.

Now all we need to do to make it perfect is find some really REALLY good voice overs to go with it. But at least the missing text will be there so that people wouldn't be as lost Smiley

We will have to wait looooong for them…
For the Melnorme, we need someone with a Kzer-Za voice (it’s the same voice actor, but the Melnorme has a high pitch filter).
For the Mycon, it’s Paul Reiche III. We need a Talking Pet/Mycon voice for the Mycon.
(or mail him at alexness@toysforbob.com until he submits…)
For the Arilou, it’s in fact the Druuge voice.

Nobody said they have to sound *exactly* the same, or even use the same filters. As long as we can get some good voice acting (easier said than done, at least on the volunteer basis we need) that fits the in-game speaker, we should be golden.

The problem is not that there are no volunteers, but rather that the volunteers are exactly those who DON'T have how to speak the slightest similar to the original voice actors.

Or you could leave out references to the Syreen and Mycon homeworlds on the map entirely.  You know there is a such thing as exploring the worlds.  Root around the Mycon Sphere enough, and you find their homeworld soon enough.
That used to be my response, too, but too many get confused by the fact that there is no clear indication that the Sun Device world isn't the Mycon homeworld, and therefore don't try to look for it.
If I'm not mistaken, they make it rather clear the SD world is not their home world when you first visit that planet.

Even still, text that was in the original version should be part of this one as well, imho.

You ARE mistaken. It's just the other way around. They name it a "special place", which makes you think that it's their homeworld:
This is a special place
filled with Juffo-Wup.
We must not allow it to be soiled by the Non.
You must go. Now.

Out of curiosity, what dialogue is missing besides the important stuff (Metachron, Mycon, and Supox)?

I think the dialogue should be added without voice for now, and I also think including the original PC release color map with SC1 spheres of influence is a very good idea. Perhaps even have some way to access it from the game's main menu so that players can easily view it without digging through files. The map is a good way to get players started without giving away too much and provides some historical perspective for people who have played the game already.

However, I DON'T think the 3DO map should be included. I had that included with the DOS version I bought (it was a later release of the game), and it spoiled a lot of the fun of figuring things out yourself for me in my first playthrough.

The Supox dialogue doesn't have any missing parts. What's missing besides Mycon and Melnorme (MetaChron) is this Ariloulaleelay quote:
Zelnick: Hey looky what we've got. The Talking Pet!
Arilou (Falayalaralfali):
So you do, my clever child!
You must have obtained some sort of psionic nullifier, am I right?
What a fine weapon the Dnyarri will be against the Ur-Quan, your enemy.
But I warn you, beware!
You now possess one of the most powerful creatures in the history of your galaxy
and also one of the most evil... as you judge evil.
We warn you, do not believe anything the Dnyarri says.
It speaks only the lies it believes will convince you to set it free
and that you must NEVER do.


and this Utwig quote:
BUT WAIT!!
The Ultron moans and hums! Matters of significance are being relayed to our brains.
It has been so long since we communicated with the Ultimate in such a manner
but slowly, the truth is revealed!!...
Something dire is afoot in the galaxy
The Kohr-Ah, the dark cousins of the Ur-Quan, have won their Doctrinal Conflict
and are even now moving through the stars on a mission of universal genocide.
The Ultron reveals that our participation is required to stop the Kohr-Ah
before they destroy all life in this part of the galaxy.
We will grant you the boon of our nigh invincible Jugger starship designs
as well as a supply of trained starship commanders.
If our allies, the Supox, are still alive, I am certain they will give you the same assistance.

(if you give them the Ultron while the Kohr-Ah are on their Death March)
