In previous versions, we used voices from other C&C games for new units. This time, we want to avoid this and give each of these units a new, unique voice. Of course, in the modding community of Command & Conquer, it is somewhat difficult to find plenty of voice actors so we have to work with what we're able to find.

First of all, this thread was created to discuss voice-over works for MO3.0 and suggest new lines for units which still don't have the set done.

The most important thing here is this online sheet which has up-to-date information on which units do not have their original voice done yet. I got plenty of messages saying 'I want to try giving a voice to a unit but I don't know what I should say'. Well, this sheet is the answer. It has lines I confirmed we'd be using for the units. The sheet will be updated continuously.

MO3.0 VOICEOVERS DATA

Green sets are done and recorded, and I already have them. The authors are credited below the unit name. A short unit description is added as a 'comment' to the unit name. There are also pictures for most of these units below the name. If you want to voice a unit, record a set and PM it to me or e-mail to mental.omega.apyr@gmail.com (preferred).

Early beta access will be available for active contributors.

This thread is to discuss this and everything else related to the voice work.

You can download a sample of Red Alert 2 voiceover in the format the files are read by the game.

It is highly recommended to keep the recording as HQ as possible, no noise, no clipping, no distortion, decent volume. Bad recordings cannot be used, even if the voice acting is great.------ We don't have an active sound editor atm.

What format do you want the files in?

Do you want anything done to the recordings (EQ or compressing, etc)?

Note to line suggestors: Allied referring is commander, Soviet is comrade and Epsilon's is proselyte.

Prepared for ingame use along with masters I think what would be the best.

I've included a sample of original Red Alert 2 voiceover. The sound is already in the format the game reads from.

Doesn't matter. It can be a single file or many files, as long as it's a complete set.

Are you allowed to suggest lines for green sets?

When I get my mic in a few days, I'll give it a shot.

I lol'd at "Stop drop and roll, gringo!"

Hi. I saw the update on ModDb and decided to sign up.

Anyway, I believe I'll be aiming to voice the Buratino unit. My only suggestion on that matter is, if you don't mind, changing the "Your wish, amigo?" quote to "Your wish, camarada?" because amigo is honestly to trite and stereotyped in my opinion and camarada would suit better since it's Spanish for comrade.

Also, I know that green sets are definite, but I noticed that some of Morales' quotes have grammar problems.

Sure, go ahead with camarada. No problem with posting grammar fixes for Morales lines either.

I don't see any green on the table except for one random box with nothing in it, but I don't see a name under Infiltrator All Epsilon. Is it still available?

You don't see that some fields are with green background?

Well, I've got one nice submission but please do make your version. It would be great to hear another voice.

A set being all the lines from each category? or 1-2 from each?

i also noticed some of the units don't have 50% health lines...those still open to suggestions?

I hopped on another computer and the green showed up, must be something I need to update on this PC. Yeah, I'm doing some recording now, I'm new to this, so I need to figure out how to clean it up, make it sound clearer.

So just to make sure, you don't want any effects added in like radio static, you just want the voice clean as is? Are there plans to add that in later for all the units? I think for the feel a radio sound should be added in later, it always sounds cooler in my opinion. But for consistency I think you should have all the voices collected in their original forms, then use the same radio effect across the board.

I was thinking of taking a whack at the Abrams and the Aeroblaze because familiar territory. I just don't know if my accents are anywhere near up to snuff. I'll be recording in little bits and pieces, Because Dang it I'm borderline OCD about this kind of thing.

Yes, we would like the voice samples you provide to not have any filters.

Only infantry uses 'Fear' lines. Vehicles don't.

Okay, so, I was looking at the chart, and suddenly I was coming up with tons of lines (particularly for the Blizard Tank), so much so I had to make an account just because I wanted to relay them, so here goes:
Selected:
"Blizzard Tank, ready to freeze."
"Just chillin', sir"
"Ready to bring the flurry!"
"C-c-c-cold as-s ice!"
"Let's make slushies!"
Moving:
"Keep it frosty, Oscar Mike."
"The ice-tank moveth."
"Crystal clear."
"Respositioning holiday weather."
Attack:
"FREEZE!"
"Inverting temperature."
"Makin' an ice sculpture!"
"Put 'em on ice!"

Also, for the missing disguise line on the saboteur:
"You do know me." (Italics for emphasis.)

Hello,guys.I have some questions.
Are there any other units which should be voiced by a female,in addition to the 3 heroes?
Nuwa Cannon is supposed to be voiced by a male,right?
And should the Chinese units speak with Chinese accents or not?I am a Chinese ,but I don't know if I should speak real English or English with Chinese accents when voicing a Chinese unit.

Thank you!
