Hi everyone.
I wanna share you an idea about sound management.
I started to collect all sounds of environment (e.g. Peds voices) from SFX.raw and writing lyrics for them.
My goal is to collect all voices and make a playground for translate these voices to another languages. First lang is mine - Russian. I enjoy voice acting (trying to record voice for short films) and I would like to translate Vice City to my language Just for fun.
I collected this Google Spreadsheet document with a bit entries for voices. It would be converted to a wiki page where we could fill it. If someone interested for it I can allow access for you.

If your Vice City is in English, check the languages file. If there is a Russian file rename it English.

Change the original files by adding (old) to their names, so you can switch back if a problem occurs.

You can find American.GXT in your Text folder in VC.

I didn't mention about GXT/Text files. I discovered a SFX.raw (audio package) from VC and found about 9000 sounds from peds/cops/swat etc.

I want to collect a database with all them replicas. It can be useful for many goals. GXT does not contain some information about environment sounds.

 

 

 

 

Yap, this is a very useful post. Thank you, I will use it. But I want to fill all speech you can hear from peds.


And I have written a small web-service for sounds. I will soon make it public in my sub-domain.

Guys, I become ready now to share you my small web-service for fill all transcriptions.
http://vc.serabass.net/
 
Because I am not native english speaker, it's a little hard for me. But I filled over 1500 sounds and so tired of this.
 
Please check my variants and correct if they are wrong.
 
I hope it will be very simple for using.
1. As you can see I grouped all sounds by ped groups that you can filter them by (http://gtaforums.com...entry1068878229)
2. To listen the sounds you must just click on rows
3. If you can recognized the speech you can fill it's text to field in Original Text column and then pressed Save or Enter. It will send your variant to my server and then I can moderate all suggestions and accept variants that I consider correct.
 
Also I have some simple rules for this service.
If I am not sure in my recognition, I typed (?) in the end of string. Or if I cannot recognize a part of the string, I type (...) in it's place. Then we can see a number of these doubtful recognitions (I just searching an opening bracket character for this)
 
I will improve this service and then we can make similar databases for all GTA's.
I hope you are interested.
Please check my variants and correct if they are wrong.
