British, English voice localisation package

Recommended Posts

Heh heh... you guys got me thinking.

Maybe we could do a Yankee localization package:

[Thick Jersey Accent]

Commander: "Gunner, youse uh...see dat tank over dere?"

Gunner: "YO!"

Commander: "Screw dat joik!"

Gunner: "Fagedaboutit!"

[bOOM!]

Commander: "Hoo-hah!"

[/Thick Jersey Accent]

:biggrin:

It sounds funny while you dream about it and the first ten times when you hear it. But you're not going to hear it ten times. You're going to hear it for years. Believe me, neutral tone and language is much better in the long run. A bit dull, yes, but there simply is no way to implement a sufficiently large repertoire of variations in order to make it appear genuinely life-like. Expletives and heavy accent without variation will soon go on everybody's nerves.

I know, this is all meant in jest. But there IS a serious background to it, and a reason why we abstained from these humorous elements.

Errr, That's pretty much Tank Hunter right there. :biggrin:

(Okay technically he lives in New Yoik, but near enough :))

Like wise with the "officer's RP" accent.

"Guh-nah! Feen! Tank!"

"On!"

"Figheur!"

BANG!

"Tarhgheet, Stoorp! I Sayh Ghoood Shoo-ting, What!"

:biggrin:

(need to say this at twice the speed of reading to get zee proper effect.)

But then as Ssnake says, it gets old very quickly.

(Crusty I believe has properly hammed it up as the loader.:) )

:biggrin: LOL Brilliant, You need a representative from Scotland though, my old Driver, Jock B. Never understood a word he said, made worse by the Clansman harness, lot of F's involved if I remember.

Scottish dialogue - or certainly Glaswegian dialogue - consists mostly of F and C words interspersed with a limited selection of others, the majority of which are unintelligble. I speak as someone who used to live for two weeks per month on an offshore oil rig in the North Sea.

As you will know, I am attempting to introduce some civility, culture and style into UKA sessions by using the greeting 'Bon soir, mes amis'. Then I go and get a cup of coffee while the rumpus dies down and certain members are resucitated by the medic. :)

My dear Sir,

How dare you mention that most ungentlemanly of liquors, coffee, in the presence of the United Kingdom's Armoured outfit.

In this organisation, we drink Tea. Dear sir, milk and no sugar.

Surely as a former member of Her Majesty's Royal Air Force, you would recognise this standard?

Narf.

:)

Otherwise sounds like a standard night in UKA. :biggrin:

Did TGIF today with this and feedback / questions:

1. The Loader needs to grow a pair.

All I heard was a girlish whisper about "HEAT ready", not "HEAT READY!!!". :)

2. Also (this might be one for Irish) not sure why the Commander was giving me corrections when it was still a Gunner's shoot (i.e. I could see the target in my reticule).

I was expecting "Add" or "Drop", not "Add 200" or "Drop 300" (I'm assuming those figures are fixed - not generated by the actual correction required)?

Will drive around tonight and see if I can get all the responses.

Appreciate the effort that went into it though (keeping the guys sober for one take, etc.) :)
