I actually suspect the dialog options in the second screenshot are placeholders.
Plausible, although I hope you're wrong. Wink

What a day.

I joined the channel about 24 hours ahead of time for express purpose of idling straight through till chat time, only to have to cut my computer off 2 hours prior due to a massive thunderstorm.  By the time the storm had passed, the chat was already 20 minutes in, but I couldn't get in thanks to Freenode trying to shooting errors at me repeatedly as if I was having connection troubles (meanwhile, I'm chatting in three other IRC servers simultaneously without issue).

By the time I finally got back in, the chat was already over.  ;_;

Comparing my personal log to the one posted, I'm a little shocked at how many comments I missed, even when I was apparently connected. :O  I didn't get any error messages, though.

Still.  Very cool!

There was a link to it in the chat... Here.  It's since been trimmed down to the more relevant bits, though.

Logs are at:
- tfbchat-20070613: original, except for the removal of IP addresses and host names, and the mangling of an email address.
- tfbchat-20070613-clean, as above, but with unrelated remarks and channel status messages removed.



Edit: changed the link to use '-clean' instead of '.clean'.

Thank you Meep-Eep, fOSSiL and McMartin for organising and moderating that wonderful event with TFB. Scholars and gentlemen all.

There were, what, around 50 people in that chatroom? Hopefully that means we'll being seeing some new faces in #UQM-Arena soon.

meep-eep, don't you think that it would be better to rename "http://uqm.stack.nl/files/chat/tfbchat-20070613.clean" to "http://uqm.stack.nl/files/chat/tfbchat-20070613-clean"? You know, many/most/all browsers don't open files with extensions, instead requesting a third party program to open them.


Ah, and know what? Look what they've said about the voices:
23:04 <+PR3> The sc2 3do voices... hmm... some were good, some were not perfect.  My son Devin (now 24) played UQM last week and said that the ONLY voice he liked was the Talking Pet.

I bet the imperfect ones include the Utwig voice.

Alternatively, set the MIME type to something a bit more descriptive than "application/octet-stream". Slapping a ".txt" extension on it would be a good idea.

I bet that wasn't an entirely objective evaluation (hint: who made the comment about whose voice?).

I think the same. Tongue

More seriously though, I wonder what Paul thinks about the Yehat voice. Was it his idea to make a race of mighty and proud warriors sound like whining brainless wimps? I personally don't find it particularly funny. Too bad I never got the opportunity to ask that question...

Well, all the qualms about the voices originate from the fact that they often emphasize the comic/parody part rather than the serious part: they emphasize the emo-ness of the Utwig instead of their other characteristics; they emphasize Orz's wackiness instead of his Lovecraftian interdimensional Parasite nature; they emphasize the Yehats' birdiness instead of their noble warrior nature.

And now, what voice exactly (among these) you don't like, depends on your favourite race: Orz lovers generally hate the Orz voice, Yehat lovers generally hate the Yehat voice, Utwig fans hate the Utwig voice.


Ah, and PRH made the comment with the voices:
23:03 < PRH_> My question actually, Paul... What is your opinion of the SC2 3DO voices? Do you think they fit the races' characters as you designed them?

Plus, I want to stress again that the only problem I have with the voice acting is the Utwig (especially!!!) and the VUX (which is not bad, just that they could be much more disgusting... though it's not something which can be fixed, it's next to impossible to make them more disgusting).

The Kzer-Za was the best voice. Then come (all on the second place) Mycon, Talking Pet, Yehat and Kohr-Ah.
