What voice would you like to see next?

G'day folks!
This is your chance to vote on what voicepacks will be included in the future releases of Hedgewars! For information on how to place your votes, read more!



The above YouTube video shows off rough samples I knocked up of all the voices I plan to record for Hedgewars. As my free time is becoming increasingly limited, I decided that rather than choosing the order of production based on what I like, I would leave that decision up to you!

Sounds good! How do I vote?
You will need to make a comment on this post listing the three voices you would most like to see in the next release of Hedgewars. At the end of the month, I will be tallying the votes and the most popular choice will be featured in the next version! There is a good possibility that the 2nd and 3rd place entries will be included too, it largely depends on how much time I am able to spare for recording.

Some notes on these samples!
As my professional recording mic is currently on loan to a friend, I've knocked up these samples with my old mic, so expect a fair bit of popping and distortions. Also please note there is a possibility that the lines I have used will not show up in the game, as many were said in the spur of the moment and some may even be deemed offensive. These samples are designed to give you an idea of the general sound a voice will have, so please vote accordingly!

What if I'd rather have another kind of voicepack?
If you have any other voicepack ideas and requests, please feel free to suggest them here! These samples are based on what has been suggested so far and what has been feasible for my voice range. For instance, I am well aware that some of you would like to see a female voice pack, however I feel this is something that would best be done by an actual woman, so I am attempting to get one of my friends involved in the production.

And that's it!
Hopefully you guys can all find something you like! Feel free to leave feedback and I'll be posting the results at the end of the month!

It's very difficult to choose, most of the new voices are AWESOME, and I hope that they will become part of the game sooner or later. But, as we are limited to only 3, here are my favourite:

1st Old Hog
2nd The Thespian
3rd The Italian

"Old hog" reminds me of South Park, so it had to be on the first place. The Thespian sounds very similar to that in Worms World Party and I find it funny. The Italian sounds best of all that remains.

And, here is a second opinion, as my girlfriend doesn't have an account (and doesn't want one):
1st The Boy From Brooklyn
2nd The Italian
3rd Old Hog
She also liked very much the idea of female voice pack Smile

lol I was just thinking about an Indian voice for Hedgehog today while playing. Big Grin I love all the voices. Scotsman and Indian need more work (pronounciation doesn't sound that Scotish/Indian). Fashionboy sounds too gay. Big Grin

Armagon, I really hope that you'll do them all as times passes. For now my vote goes for...the Italian.

PS: I vote for only one for it is really too difficult for me to decide what should land on 2nd and 3d place. Wink Smiley

1st The Thespian
2nd Old Hog
3rd The Rastafarian

Smile

1: Arnie
2: The Zombie
3: Old Hog

All the voices are great!

What I don't like (IMO, they just don't fit in the game): Zombie, Fashionable Guy, Sports Comm, Arnie

1)Old Hog
2)The Ratafarian
3)The Scotsman

1 The Zombie
2 The Italian
3 The Rastafarian

The Irish
The Zombie
The Sports Commenter

For the sports commenter I would like him to talk a bit faster and longer.

Viking or Swede voicepack would be great (has that home-feeling)

The Arnie
The Italian
The Sports Commentator

But really, I want all of them at some point Smile

1. The Sports Commentator
2. The Zombie
3. The Rastafarian

Yeah I would love to have all of them on there as well Big Grin

Ikonz101

1. The Zombie
2. The Old Hog
3. The Sports Commentator

1. The Zombie
2. The Fashionable guy
3. The Italian

PD: Suggestion: A voicepack japanese or chinese :P .

All of them are really great so it would be the best to include them all at some point Smile But for now, my choices are:

1. the Rastafari (although it sounds painfully fake now, but if you can spend a little time familiarizing with the patois dialect, it might be a killer voice packSmile )
2. the boy from brooklyn
3. the hespian

I could easily make the Scotsman accent thicker, but I kinda wanted to go for a more realistic representation of it. I have a couple of Scottish friends and they didn't exactly sound like Willy from the Simpsons, they sounded closer to Shrek. This is something I can experiment when the time comes to produce a Scotsman pack. As for the Indian voice, this is something I will work on. Smile

The intention is that all of these will be featured at some stage, but I do have limited time so I wanted to put out the packs the people were most eager to have. Incidentally, the Fashionable one is meant to sound very gay. :P

1. Commentator
2. Rastafarian
3. Arnie

Yes, I've noticed the accent Shrek has.
I think you might want to look at the Scotsman (from "Samurai Jack"):

Here's how he sounds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5L-kRNeyuQ

Hope it helps. ^^ He sounds funny. Big Grin btw Too much realism isn't good, when doing a voice for a game like Hedgewars. Wink Smiley

Indian
Redneck
Italian

Valid enough point, the more exaggerated style of Scotsman accent certainly has its charms. :P

This sort of ranked voting entertains me.
Here's a break-down using one arbitrary interpretation of the 60 votes so far.
Yes, I know there are a ton of ways to do ranked voting.
1st - Arnie
2nd - Zombie
3rd - Sports Commentator

Claymore's votes were all counted as 1 since he said no particular order.

hawkn voted for samurai which wasn't listed in his voice preview (yes, I know it was shown earlier by Tiy, but seems only right to stick to the list presented) so I didn't count his 3rd.

Personally, I've been not counting all these "a friend" ones - that just seems silly. I could invent a ton of friend votes too.
Sure is an informal count, but isn't like creating an account is much of an imposition.

Personally I'm counting myself for:
redneck
fashionable guy
old hog

1. Thespian
2. Fashionable Guy
3. Rastafarian

Those were my favourite voices in The Other Game.

  1. Italian
  2. Thespian
  3. Sport Speaker

100% with Bigg on this one... GET TO D CHOPPA Flying

Also @ Armagon, I was thinking of a radio banter stlye voice set, which could include such well known talkie talk as: "Houston we have a problem"(Apollo 13), "Red Leader standing by", "We can't repel firepower of that magnitude!!!" Darth Vader! , "Splash that sucker, yeah!" (Top Gun), "You've got a bogey on your tail!", "Do a Barrel roll!" ...(Star Fox, anyone?) These of course in addition to the radio staples "10:4", "over", etc.

~Tell me what you think.

Arnie
Thespian
Zombie

Arnie (almost better than a german voicepack Big Grin)
The Sports Commentator
The Indian

(Liked the Samurai from another YouTube video as well.)

Btw. I'd try to do a German (or Bavarian? Big Grin) voicepack myself ... what settings/modulations do you use to make the voices hoglike (in e.g. Audacity)?

1: The rastafarian
2: Irishman
3: The fashionable guy

I have to agree 100% as well. I THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING MY SUGGESTION FOR ZOMBIE VOICE, ARMAGON!!!! Big Grin

1) The Indian
2) The Rastafarian
3) The Scotsman

Fashionable Guy
Sport Speaker
Old Hog

1- Zombie
2- Arnie
3- Old Hog
...for sure!!

The Indian would be my 4th choice.

The Fashionable Guy sounds way too gay, maybe if called School Girls and the lines were from female hogs would make it way cooler. And hey! The first feminine team voice could lead to something good.

Brooklin and Redneck were definitely the most boring ones IMO.

I am always impressed by the ambition all of hw's devs show. These are all great, but my top votes would be

1) Thespian
2) Zombie
3) Indian

Very cool... can hardly decide given the choices.

1. Scotsman
2. Indian
3. Italian

Wow, these all are amazing, Armagon! I can't believe you're doing all these voices yourself, you can do the accents perfectly!

My votes:

1. The Sports Commentator

2. The Thespian

3. The Irishman

1.Rastafatian
2.Old hog
3.Zombie

1. The Zombie
2. The Sports Commentator
3. The Redneck

but I liked the samurai from your last video most

1. The Rastafarian
2. The Zombie
3. The Sports Commentator

These voices are FABULOUS!!!!!!

#1: Arnie
#2: Indian
#3: Irish

If possible, my fourth choice would be the Sports Commentator.

Hah, this is a lot more votes than I'd expected. I'm gonna have fun counting these up at the end of the month. :P

1) Sports commenter
2) Italian
3) Arnie

1) Old Hog
2) The Zombie
3) Arnie

I'd say most aren't too bad at all, but here's my top 3:

Thespian
Sports Commenter
Indian

1) Indian
2) The thespian
3) Scotsman

My top 3:
1) Scotsman
2) Indian
3) Old Hog

May I also suggest the Chewbacca voicepack.
And my friend wants to give his opinion (cause he doesn't have an account here yet)

His top 3:
1)Old hog
2)Indian
3)Redneck

french pliz!!!

Arnie
Thespian
Old Hog

In no particular order. And I do think votes should be restricted to one per account. Otherwise... my friend wants to give his opinion also, he wants:

Old Hog
Thespian
Arnie

1st The Rastafarian
2nd The Italian
3rd The Zombie

1) Old Hog
2) Rastafarian
3) Zombie

Actually zombie is the best but it sounds too friendly. Hellish Hand Grenade

My votes are

1 - The Thespian
2 - Arnie
3 - Scotsman
