[FF7 PC] Project Echo-S [WIP]
« on: 2016-08-06 19:55:53 »




Project Echo-S will one day be a fully completed voice acting mod, every Main character, Minor character and NPC will be given a voice. You'll be able to experience the game in a whole new way.

This is a huge community project and everyone can be involved. The sheer amount of voice actors needed for this project is beyond crazy. But we aren't going to be putting in just any lines, we wanna make sure they're all reasonable.
If we are going to this effort to make a mod of this calibre, we're going to do it the best we can, first time.
We aren't pulling a Skyrim here, each NPC will be a new voice.

There will be no super bad acting, no awful quality lines.
We will do our best to train each NPC's actor to a standard that is bearable.
As well as editing each audio clip to make it sound the best we can.

This mod will also contain a few of it's own features (Some of which will come via later updates) :

- Totally uncensored
- New modernised translation of the game from "The Reunion" mod
- Togglable Subtitles to replace the text boxes
- Togglable Automatic scrolling of text (No more pressing "OK" to skip text)
- Voiced choice dialog


Playable demo's will also be released as time goes so you can get a feel for how it will be to experience this in-game.
I am unsure of how many, or at what points in the game these will be released. But there will be a few.


This mod contains the amazing voice talents of the following people:

So far we have updated 3, so please enjoy listening below.

Hello!

Thanks for sharing the video!

I personally cannot think of ever playing the original game again without the revised text made by Reunion's "Beacause" by DPLB (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14914.msg209227#msg209227) so my suggestion is to make it fully compatible with it. I know this is tough because it means that either Reunon's users or vanilla game users will be cut out but I just thought I'd make you guys aware.

Best of luck!

I actually do have this included. It comes with the complete re-translation. Completely compatible with all mods as long as they don't alter the flevel.

The script i use is from the Reunion so need to activate it. Just the MO

Also has options for text turned into subtitles,
and text that moves from one to another automatically.

All this will be shown in the new video releasing on Monday

R05b is pretty decent and any changes from now won't be too significant dialogue wise.  But they will be grammar wise - and box placement wise.  R06 is the finalized version.  Maybe best off waiting until then, or at the least using R05b.

If you happen to have a script hidden online somewhere i can use that, i have to go in and alter every line anyway sop adjustments are no extra really. Unless you can send me the flevel at some point. Or even the chunks

Minor update here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUm0g9ZLcVQ

An extra add-on for Echo-S is the dialogue choices. You now think a variation of the option before saying it out loud.
Because saying out loud repeatedly when choosing just did not look right.

Show your support by hitting that like button for me!
The more we get the faster the actors will work knowing how many people out there are depending on them!

I would love to audition but my interested role is already filled and told I make a great voice for Sephiroth.  Any chance after the project you show what you did so more people can do it for the character they want?  It would be interesting for combinations and that way more people can be pleased.  If not I understand but I hope you can take that into consideration.

I can do yeah, i'll make a tutorial after for it. It's not too difficult to do but it does take forever.

If you wanna help me you can voice some NPC's. I really need them right now

Still need plenty of NPC actors for anyone who wants to be involved in this project. A playable demo will be released shortly for use with 7th heaven. I really hope you all enjoy it and after playing wish to join me with this

Pretty good voice acting!  I would get rid of the voiced press cancel to run stuff. Seems weird
