Well I have some bad news, Jeth's computer started acting up on him and he lost the new audio. Fortunately we hadn't recorded any new stuff so I had a copy of the files. But his work of coding them in was lost. So we have been set back slightly. Also due to his schedule becoming busier, I will be taking over the audio work.

So, announcement time! I am looking for some voice actors who can record their voice and help me make new audio for some of the new heroes and units. This is your chance to get your voice into the mod :p

Here is a list of the new audio we need. If you know of a mod or website that already has recorded one of the people on this list, please let me know.
CODE

Sauron

Theodred
Erkenbrand
Elfhelm
Grimbold
Alatar
Pallando
Men of the Westfold/Westfold Spearmen (I'm really just looking for a generic rohan soldier sound)

Beregond
Madril
Mablung
Damrod
Pelagir Spearmen
Lossarnach Axemen
Imrahil
Knights of Dol Amroth


If you would like to help, please record several voice samples (perhaps an attack, a move, and a select line for the unit of your choice) and send them to me via PM in .wav format (zipped is fine too). I don't have any specific lines for you to use for the voice samples but think about how the EA lines were written and try to emulate them ;) You can pick whatever unit on the list you'd like to for the voice sample.

If I like the way your voice sounds for either the unit you recorded or for another unit, I'll PM you and provide you with some lines to record. If I don't think your voice will work for any of the units (ie, too high or something...) then I'll PM you and let you know that too ;)

Ideally I'd like to get 2-3 different lines for each unit for Attack, Move, Select, and maybe 1-2 flavor lines that could be used in any of the categories or for spawning. (Just to give you an idea of how many lines I'm looking for for the final result).

If you think that a current EA audio clip could be used for one of the units/heroes above, please PM me and let me know so that I can look into it. After all, the less audio we have to record, the better (and the faster we can finish the mod).

Thanks!

My voice is too high-pitched for anyone on the list. I could do some orc (or Gollum) snarl/gurgles but my mic is very old and doesnt work well. (You will have to increase its volume)
Wait... what?

Tell you what, go ahead and give it a shot and I'll see what I can do on my end :p I can manipulate the audio quite a bit so it could work.

I think he was actually asking about what type of voice I was looking for for the Gondorians (ie, low, high, etc). Yes?

In any event, I'll go ahead and give a brief overview of what I'm looking for. For the Gondorians I'm generally looking for a lower voice however, I have some software that can lower the pitch of your voice, so I'm not too worried about if you have a high or low voice. Rather I think it is more important to get some new lines and new sounding voices into the mod :xd: That is one of the reasons I would like a sample first, so that I can play around with it and see what I can make it sound like.

I'll try Gondor Soldiers. I sound like a kid so you will have to drastically lower the voice.

Is there any good recording program?

Audacity is freeware and can easily record from any audio input. So you could plug in a mic and hit record on the program and you'd be able to record your voice that way. Google "Audacity" and follow their directions to get it working :xd:

I'll see if I have a mic... if I do, I'd be glad to record some voices. In fact, I'll write a script of what I think the voices should be, and PM it to you (if that's all right, Gothmog). :xd:

Sure, that would be great :xd:

(Assuming this is in audacity) Well, is the input for the mic loud enough? ie, when you record does it show a very clear audio 'pattern' in blue on the main display? You might also check to make sure that you have the correct input selected.

You might also check to see if you can find something helpful here: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/help/

I have returned to serve the king.


[plea for help] I'll close by reminding everyone that once the audio is done the mod will be released. So by recording some of these lines and getting your voice in the mod, not only are you helping out the mod team, you also are helping get the mod released sooner. And how cool would it be to have your voice in the mod?!? You could then brag about it to your friends! Think about it (briefly) and then go grab a mic and record some lines and send them to me :p

Also, I have to return to school on August 15th and at that point I will have zero time to mod. So with or without audio the mod will be released by that date. Please please please! Let's get the audio done by then. I cannot do it without you all; I need voice actors. [/plea]

Sounds like a great idea.
You might be able to get enough audio stuff for Madril from the movies.
For Sauron, I think when you use the darkness power you can hear sauron. Also you could possibly use the audio from bfme2 for sauron. it might mean you have to re-record the sounds whilst playing though, i'm not sure.

i might try some of these too :p

You can probably ask the mod team behind the SEE mod if you can borrow some of there King Brand voices, I checked it out and it can possibly fit into a Rohan hero or unit. I'll also go by _Haldir_'s suggestion and grab some voices of Madril from the films as I have all Extended Editions if you want. I believe the answer will most likely be yes so I'll start right now. I hope there are enough voices.
