The Dialogs of the game are very important but just because of this we get will run into some problems. I thought of: => using the original english and german voice files from Toonstruck 1 -> The ones who write the Dialogs can only use word fragments of the Sound Files + This would be the perfect way because we would have the original voices - we are very limited in the dialogs - it would be really difficult to use fragments of the original Voice Files
=> use new speakers -> we would search for new speakers for every character + would be the easiest way + we wouldn't be bound to predefined fragments - we would loose a little bit of character because we wouldn't use the original voices
So I think we will search for new Speakers.
Furthermore, Please write the Dialogs in English. If we have a general concept of what we want to be in the game, we will need some users to TRANSLATE the Dialogs. I think that a portation of the game would be very nice and so we should have that in mind when we are close to a beta.
=>Use voice samples from movies featuring Cristopher Lloyd + The original voice like in the first game - A lot of work because of the different soundqualities of every movie used - We're not allowed to use those sounds (Copyright etc.)
I can translate from english to german and vice versa if you still need somebody for that...
the localizing is the last problem I think, because i' of the opinion that we will first finish the game and try to outsource every Sound / Voicefile we use so that we can make Language packs which can be downloaded seperately. That would be perfect.
So the user has to download the "Main Game" and a language Pack to play the game.
If any more news is given on dialog for characters that require speakers (teddy biker gang for example) I would be more than happy to do some voice acting. Just give me a lead or an example if you wish and i should be able to create a vocal style for the character if someone else would like to do it. Or i can do voices myself .
