Re: Remastered Combat Sounds!

hey folks, i'm back again, with a bit more time to spare to tackle these sounds for the Combat section. now, i'm fairly certain i have all of the original sound sources for my files so i can tailor them to the length that they need to be for the screen action. in order to do this efficiently it woul...

Re: Remastered Combat Sounds!

well, i'm not the one who did the revisions of the original sounds actually. can somebody give me an idea about what needed to be done for the Version 1 version of the sounds to work in the combat environment? i can probably shorten them fairly easily. lengthening might be an issue. one general desi...

Re: back in action - ready to volunteer - what's needed?

Did you try to launch a game with the 4508 build before you did the separate install of python? Because this build should work even without such a separate install. It has a patch applied that contains a workaround for the issue causing this. if i recall correctly, i believe the new build did NOT w...

Re: back in action - ready to volunteer - what's needed?

hey vezzra i did actually download the build of 4508. seems to work fine as i did a separate install of python for mac based on that very thread. after that i had no more startup issues. it looks fine though it won't import a saved game from the earlier build and also the colored icons for the Resea...

Re: back in action - ready to volunteer - what's needed?

it's kind of odd - i end up being pulled back to freeorion just because of the sheer plodding doggedness of the developers involved - like the most determined turtle alive. not to imply that things are plodding - i mean, two updates in a whole year? someone must be on speed... anyway, every month or...

Re: Remastered Combat Sounds!

hey there - i'm the one who designed these sounds, so give me some feedback on any further changes you might need for these. i guess especially ones where the approach is sounding wrong rather than just adjusting length or pitch which i gather has now already been done.

Re: Submitted Content - Dry or Wet ?

i agree with this - especially for long audio samples. for shorter ones as long as the reverb is relatively short and not excessively wet (more reverb than the original) it can add a certain useful texture. as a design spec i realize that having conditional requirements may complicate matters (ie it...

Re: Make me a list of sound effects

thanks a lot for your input! it gives me a direction to head in at least. i have started to put together possible basic interface sounds. game wise, ive had very little exposure to space based games. sound wise, my influences are basically SMAC and a few moments spent playing Homeworld. that and ton...

Re: Make me a list of sound effects

hi pd and everyone sorry to get back so late... I wasn't talking about core developers, but all the other people frequenting the board(especially brainstorming). perhaps a cross post in brainstorming would be useful? Anyway, here are my thoughts about the sounds effects: On re-listening with headpho...
