The Taalo Project
« on: July 19, 2007, 04:46:25 am »

Alright, I guess since I slipped the info about me starting a new project for UQM on the Precursors feedback page, I better announce it here. I've started re-recording and processing all of the voice-overs in the game with the exception of the Slylandro Probes (that hokey voice simulator works perfectly for them). I still need to finish a full set before anything is released however (I plan to release four voices per pack). I am also in the process of finding a server to host a website for the project (If at all possible, I will accept help from anyone willing to offer their own bandwidth :p ).

Also, if anyone is interested in auditioning to be the voices, ask me, and I'll send you a copy of the script of the race you desire. you'll take a few lines, record yourself doing your best voice acting with it (preferably, do three versions of each line, each time performing it slightly differently, so I can see if you also have the range and variety required.) If I choose to do so, I may tell you to do another voice instead if your voice fits that race better than the one you selected. Also, I will do most of the processing myself, after you send me all of the samples. The process to complete several effect scripts and choose the one that fits most may take as short of a timespan as 2 days to as long as 2-3 weeks, so this may take a year or a year and a half to finish. Alright, this being said Myself and Valaggar the Wackrazy One are in charge of this project, so contact either of us if you have any questions.

Look, dude -

I saw this thread. I don't need you mentioning it in every thread in the Starbase Cafe.

Thank you.

Davey: Kaelos wants to help, but he has no idea what race he'd be good for. Possibly the Orz, because of his speech habits, but he doesn't think his voice quite matches them. Ideas of what to do?

Well, if Kaelos wants me to, I'll send him selected quotes from several races, and I will take a listen to the samples that he sends back. We'll see what happens from that point.

Oh, one thing I forgot to add, all of your raw samples need to be recorded in .wav format.

I think this could be a cool project - I'd help if I had a convenient way of recording...

Well, there is a "Views" number for each thread, you know. Wink

Trust me, it's getting noticed. It's just that people are either too shy, have nothing to add, or don't really care. That's just the way things go sometimes.

Just because no one responds to a topic does not mean that it's not getting looked at.

Doesn't Audacity have a recording function?

CeeVee: Yeah, I know. I guess you're right, I mean, this could be quite intimidating to some.

Yes, but my computer isn't hooked up to any sound input device, and when we hooked one up, Audacity didn't recognize it as valid input. Plus, I would worry about annoying the other people in my house.

It's also a great amount of work. Even though I'd like to contribute to this project (mainly because it sounds fun), I know that there isn't even a remote chance that I'd ever finish it if I started. Recording (and rerecording, and rererecording) a huge amount of dialogue takes enormous amounts time, which is something that'll keep many people away from this project. Still, the people who do enlist will be dedicated, so I guess it all works out for the best

I understand. I've gone through the Kzer-Za script at least three times looking for the perfect sounding voice, and I'm still not done after 3 weeks.  Tongue

Good. just drop me a line via email or YIM and I'll send you some auditioning lines.


EDIT: Sorry, didn't notice that y'all had already e-mailed me, lol.

Update: If the Black Spathi Squadron is ever implemented into UQM 1.0 or higher, I will be willing to write dialogue for them, record a voice over (I'm doing the rest of the Spathi anyways), and even write a few ideas for their music.
