Well, having two (slightly different) accents for the two Yehat instances works, but two voices? Wouldn't it sound a bit silly that half of their race has a voice, and the other half has another voice?

I kinda see it, err... hear it in my imagination as one sounding like patrick steward and the other sounding like sean connery. :]

...There's no way I could work it so that I sound like Patrick Stewart or Sean Connery! Anyway, I have all the equipment and such I need for recording, so I'll start working on the samples tomorrow, Davey.

One thousand pardons, UQM community...

But I would just like to say that, in all honesty, the concept sounds incredibly silly. Perhaps good in theory, like when Marx said he could equate all men, women and children because of the advent of "machine labour". But in the end, only the specialists could get any work done, and that's a good reason why the USSR fell.

So... if my opinion counts... I'd just like to say maybe it would be best if we kept the work to the professionals?

This project is probably started just out of boredom; Davey isn't really hoping to get something better than the originals, now are you, Davey? And anyway, hiring professional voice actors would cost, and nobody wants to pay  Shocked Shocked Shocked.
P.S.: The original voice actors weren't all professionals; the actor who did the Syreen, VUX and Zoq-Fot-Pik was, a lot of others weren't (maybe no other one, actually).

Does he even really intend to replace the voices from the game with those of the new actors?

RedDaVinci, as much as I'd love to flame you right now, It's best that I stick to what I came here to do today. I must announce, unfortunately, that the deadline for the first pack is no more. The project is not dead, put on hold or in any way dismantled. But, because of the start of school, I must abolish any kind of set schedule for the project, and simply state that the project will be done when it is done (Which translates into sometime between now and the end of the school year). Also, the reason why I push for a female voice-over for the Kohr-Ah is that I am a Kingdom Hearts/ Final Fantasy fan. That may not make much sense to any of you unless you have played games from either series. Thank you. I now leave for an undefined period. >.>...<.<...

Absolute ridiculousness. You are a complete moron if you intend to flame somebody just because of an honest concern and unbiased opinion. Now I'm sure many of us here find that the whole project is a bit silly to begin with, but to follow it by the letter according to you-- that is, a female voice actor for the Kohr-Ah talking pet-- is ridiculous. And just because you're a fan of Japanese RPG's.

Star Control is not a Japanese RPG. Let's not forget what the project was intended to do: replace the disappointing voice acting where it exists, not to hastily re-do all of the voice acting, especially to the whims of somebody trying to emulate something entirely different. If the project is to be done, let it be done whilst keeping in mind the original intent. That's all I have to say.

What? I thought that hastily re-doing all of the voice acting was the whole point of this project.

Also, I believe the way you appeared after these people had worked on this project for quite some time, only to tell them how stupid you thought the whole idea was, is perfectly worthy of flaming. Implying that Davey was a "complete moron" in your second post only justifies this. (Admittedly, flame wars aren't a good thing, so maybe it warrants moderatorial censure rather than flames.)

Don't get me wrong; I also think that the project is kind of silly. I just don't jump in with this pretentious attitude.

...You know, I'm just gonna wait for one of the moderators to delete his posts from this topic. And don't even try to say that whole bullshit with "Then what's the point of a forum if you aren't free to express your opinion on a topic?" because my reply is simple: Because none of us really want to get flamed, and everyone else is free to flame you for doing so if your opinion is just so...so...how to put it? Diminishing? Would that be the right term? Whatever the correct term is, your opinion is that. Also, keep in mind, these packs, along with the music remix packs, are add-ons, which means, if I'm right (and I believe I am) that users are free to use them if they wish. In fact, I may even make a female Kohr-Ah voice pack and a male Kohr-Ah Voice pack. Each voice will be individually packaged, so if you don't like one of my voices, you don't have to use it. However, if there is one that you like, you can use it without having to use the others.

EDIT: This post was a lot longer before I censored it.

No they aren't. Doing that is just as despicable as starting the flame war.

ATTENTION, INTERLOPERS!Heed this eager post: this voice over package, the Kzer-Za, has been released! Now, as soon as Valaggar packages it in a way that it can be downloaded right into your addon folder and used in the game, You can use it. I provided a voice for the Kzer-Za in this pack, and I did all of the effect processing myself as well. This drone vessel now leaves to inform the Ur-Quan of your transgressions. You are commanded to remain here and wait the arrival of the Ur-Quan. Disobedience WILL be punished.

Simon's Law of Star Control Fandom:

The emotional intensity and general shrillness of any discussion about Star Control increases as one goes down the following scale:

Storyline,
Sequels and spin-offs,
Voice acting,
Utwig Voice Acting

PS: I also think this project is silly.

Then the entire project, by that definition, seems incredibly pointless now, don't you think?

Also, I believe the way you appeared after these people had worked on this project for quite some time,

Don't give me this nonsense. Did you not read when it was said that project would be done "when it is done", implying an enormous stretch of time? How much of the "work" has actually been finished, at this point, to invalidate the fact that this time might just be better spent for the rest of this year?

only to tell them how stupid you thought the whole idea was,

What is the matter with you, twisting my words like that? I said, "silly", and you agreed.

is perfectly worthy of flaming.

This, in response to when I said that honest opinions have no reason to be flamed. It seems here that I did not start any flame wars, but you seem perfectly content to pin the blame on me.

Implying that Davey was a "complete moron" in your second post only justifies this.

I implied this, using the qualifier, "IF". Had you done any basic study as to the validity of the word "IF", say, in elementary school, you would realise that it signifies a condition. Now, on the CONDITION that some thug completely discards an honest opinion on a subject, threatening to start a so-called "flame war", he is clearly a moron.

Don't get me wrong; I also think that the project is kind of silly. I just don't jump in with this pretentious attitude.

If you hated proper articulation, why didn't you instead spend your internet time on 4chan, for instance, rather than decide to pin the blame on me and demand the moderators remove any sign of dissidence?

In case you have not noticed, you are flaming.

If I was similarly inclined, we would now have a flame war. However, I am not.

Interesting. So, disagreeing with what you have to say when you distort what I am trying to say is "flaming"...

If so, I guess I'm flaming, and I have absolutely no problem with it.
