How does everyone else like the stock voiceovers in A2? Most of them are OK. The one that really irritates me though is the federation construction ships. That guy whistles through his teeth when he talks. "All workcrew report to sta*whistles*tion." I got rid of that one straight away with the construction ship voices from A1 they sound better. But theres just a lot of generic voices. Weren't they allowed to use more stuff from the series and films? The Klingons are pretty good. That one guy is Captain Kargan from the Pagh. :beer:

If they had used quotes from the films and series they might have had to pay a lot more. (Besides some fans would probably feel ripped off eg.. "quotes from the film/TV?, man thats just being lazy! couldn't they just make some new ones or somthing?")

They instead chose the cheaper option of paying the actors directly (probably on a "per-line" basis). William Frakes (Riker) was probably busiy directing or somthing. hence his absence.

I suspect the original storyline for Armada 1 would have been the TNG episode "Best of both worlds". But Frakes couldn't make it, so they "dropped" him and changed the plot.

But thanks to the painstaking effots of the we can put Riker back in! (using various wav files that is).

PS. To change the sound files used in the game for the voices and comp, open the file... events.dat ...in notepad. The file can be found in your Star Trek Armada II dir (where you installed the game). Any new sound files you want to add can be put in the dirs with the other wav files.

[You too can become a Star Fleet captain! No training required! Apply your wavs today!]

I know what you mean about using voiceovers from tv/films sounding cheap. But there were so many episodes for TNG, so much dialogue. They could even mix up character's voices. Like(for example) if you click on the Enterprise, You would here Picard's voice, but if you told the Enterprise to attack, you would here Worf's voice, yet again, if you sent it to repair, you would hear Geordi's voice. They should've been a little more creative than just having some guy that whistles through his teeth do the voiceovers. Recently I integrated the Genesis weapon into the game, as I am off and on working on a TMP based mod. For the USS Reliant(which carries the Genesis weapon) I used voiceover from Ricardo Montalban in ST: TWOK.

lol, Kahn! I can not hear that name with out hearing Shatner going "Kahhhhhhhhnn!", cracks me up everytime.

I made my own wav's for Armada once, but I got sick of hearing my annoying voice everytime I clicked something.

heh, i would refuse to play the game with your voice every time i click a ship :p but using voice samples from the show usualy has background noise in them so it makes it can be pretty low quality. I think using your own voice likes Breslin is an intresting idea though lol.

Voice modding is great fun! At the moment I'm making a small Eggman voice set for my own hero ship. :)

"Egg cannon ready?... FIRE!" :eek:

Actually, if you use a decent program( I use Nero wave editor) you can play with the background noise, you can cut out unwanted sounds and even make people in Star Trek say things that they never said. Remeber what Wesley Crusher did in "The Naked Now"? He made Picard say that command of the Enterprise had been handed over to "...acting captain Wesley Crusher." lol. LOL. Yeah, Kahn! What I picture is Shatner's lousy; "...STILL....OLD....FRIEND!!" lol. But really you can get creative with the voiceovers. I actually thought about having a special voiceover for the Decommission command where Kahn can say; "Don't insult my intelligence..."

i hate the borg voices (apart from the queen, of course). they're very un-borgish.
