Hi Shard,

I made an account just to say how impressed I am by your work and those involved. Can't wait for this to see an official release.

Thanks,

:D

Hi Shard

Hope all is well on your end.

Could we please get an update on the: Lines finished: 3631 / 6649 (54.6%)?

Are there any specific blockers in the way atm?

Also, in terms of the additional dialogue you will add (e.g. as you run around), could you give us a little more info on that?

Who is writing it?
 
How are they going to ensure it doesn't feel like a bad fan fic? 

Are they going to try and splice in cut content (by reference to interviews and Ultimania's)?

How long after the release of the vanilla mod will the additional dialogue take?

I assume if you haven't scoped it out already it is going to take significantly longer to do, as you will need to get the cast members back again, rather than just tacking it onto the end of their existing work load.

That said, if the additional dialogue is most Squalls thoughts that does make it easier from a logistics/production stand point.

Also, do you think this will be done by Xmas?  I am going to Distant Worlds in November with the gf (30th Anniversary) and wanted to play this before hand with the mod, but not sure that will happen.

Anyhow, as always, thanks for the hard work!

Thanks for your interest in the project. I would be happy to answer your questions.

The lines finished is pretty much up to date. I'm waiting on my Irvine and Selphie actors to be available. My Irvine just finished sampling for a music project, so I should be recording with him in the coming weeks. My Selphie is a real voice actress that does paid work first. After them, all that's left to do is a zoo of minor characters.

There's not much info to give. The characters will speak in some areas as you walk around. If you've watched Shudo Ranmaru's FF8Voices fandub on youtube, it will be a lot like that. I wasn't able to add as much dialogue as I originally envisioned, but there are a few places in the game that feel less boring to walk through now.

I'm writing all the extra dialogue, and I also wrote the modified dialogue.

I guess you'll just have to wait and see.

Some lines that were cut from the game are being added. I am going to use the alternate view of the dormitory common area at least once. That's all I can think of at the moment.

The additional dialogue will be part of the release. It was recorded at the same time everything else was.

It's possible, but I wouldn't hold my breath. You will know the release date when I do.

30 years and you haven't married her :P

I'm kidding, I assume (and hope) you mean the 30th anniversary of FF. I've always wanted to go to Distant Worlds. I hope you and the gf have fun there.
