Peer Editing Of Announcer Script

#1
Hey everyone--- So, we have this guy (bitbomb) who has been waiting around for an announcer script to be finished for quite some time... and i've been letting him down. I just simply don't have the time to go through and finish up the script, it is merely too long for his or our purposes. What I need you to do is: View all the various ways of saying things, and pick which ones you like best... It's that simple. Just pick whether, for example, you want to hear "Level cleared" or "Level completed" when beating a level in the campaign. Or pick the prefix to use for powerup announcements, etc.

Bitbomb also has a test run (which is rough and cannot be used for in the game yet) available of the script as it is, but he was rushed through it and didn't have the time to go over each permutation properly yet... You can listen to it here, but please be mindful that many things in the script were skipped/not covered. However, it will possibly give you a good idea as to which announcement variations sound better. At this time I would also like to request that you give input regarding how certain phrases should be said, to better suit the attitude of how each permutation should sound. Additionally, if you have any other feature suggestions or possibilities that might exist in the future, feel free to clarify those as well.

Above all else though, PLEASE keep your post organized and directly sorted. I DO NOT want to sift through paragraphs to find suggestions or choices--- simply quote and directly outline your ideas in brief sentences or bulletin points so we can process it much easier.


Here is the copy of the script from the original PiratePad:
Quote:Brainstorming for Xonotic announcer sounds, including list and general ideas regarding how to execute recording and filtering of the sounds for later use.

Basically the way this works is, we have a script, and then you read through the entire script in multiple tries, spacing each line/message out a few seconds so it can be easily cut and modified later. Ideally, multiple versions/run throughs of the script should be done in one session, this way we can pick the best sounding versions for each line/message. After this is done, we filter the sounds however we please... usually robotic/darker voice, like -6 semitones or such. Additionally, we should also do a set filtered to have a "radio" style voice, as some of these announcements are best suited as more personal messages, and shouldn't stand out as much as "full" announcements broadcasted to everyone.

FYI, the more items on the script the better.... It's far better to have lots of options for picking announcer sounds than too few, especially for "future proof" announcer voices.

If you fuck with the post, I will murder you in your sleep. *is watching you Unvaquished-ians*
IF YOU EDIT THIS POST, PLEASE SET YOUR NICKNAME IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER OF PIRATEPAD-- this helps us to work with revisions better.

Step 1: Record all of this shit, a dry run
Step 2: Figure out what sounds good/what variations of sayings we want (i.e. do we say "Sudden death" or "sudden death tiebreaker" in overtime mode?
Step 3: Re-write the list, truncating redundant variants we don't want anymore
Step 4: Do a full run
Step 5: Merge into the game

One more thing.. These announcer sounds would be paired with my new notification system, which means these announcements are all going to be optional on the client, allowing the client to decide whatever the hell they want.

And yes, his dry run is pretty fucking hilarious at times... Sounds like Richard Nixon while saying "Rocket Slut" for example.

Also note: "First Score" and "First Casualty" needs to remain, that is for "gentle" mode-- similarly there are some other redundant things like this which do need to remain.

1/2/3 captures left - Thanks! Wink Or at least that CTF uses 1/2/3 frags left again. Smile

Also, here is a quick look at what the production session will sound like. Recorded this with the setup we'll be using for the final sessions. (Just a quick countdown and 'prepare for battle' testing some new gear)

I liked this "Rocket slut!" better, from an older session. But I think it's because it cracks me up every time I listen to it. Definitely hear the Nixon, haha

EDIT: Totally inconsequential, but on the goofy 30 minute run, on the multiple attempts at 'Genocide' when I said something like 'Keep wanting to say it like a Brit,' what I meant was 'like James Hetfield.' Crossed wires somewhere. Not sure how this could possibly be any less important but it bugs me because it sounds like I'm using 'brit' in a derogatory manner. 'James Hetfield' was the intended derogatory term. Cool story bro.
Negative, I am a meat popsicle.
