Last month's audio pack with all of Plier's WC4 witticisms was a big hit, so AD has rolled up (nearly) the whole enchilada this time. He's assembled a much larger zip with some 6,000 various clips. It's mostly comm chatter, but there is some music in there as well. They're also mostly unlabeled due to the quantity of files here, but anyone who needs pilot voiceovers for a fan project is in luck. It's also really fun to randomly sift through and listen since there's so many obscure lines that most people have never heard before. Grab it here (125 meg zip).
I didn't try and categorize all the nearly 6,000 files. I left it separated by disk. I did do a quick runthrough of the first disk, so all the named files in the root directory of the zip should be duplicates of disk one. I've made a preliminary attempt at naming them. So what you will find in the disk folders are a bunch of sequential wav files... It's not as much of a mess as it would first seem. You can pretty much ignore the last four digits of the 12 digit file-names. The first eight are the ones that count. The files are named after the extracted IFF files that they came from (@HCl's awesome but ancient treman doesn't preserve the original internal IFF naming unfortunately). So the program I batch converted these in preserved the IFF file number and appended a four digit sequential numbering on the entire batch.
Now about duplication: Yes... There's a lot here. But it wasn't practical (at least short term) to get rid of them all. Quite a few of the comm audio replies are repeated between disks (but not all) and in a few cases are repeated even within the same disk. (one trick is to put them all in the same folder and sort by time length and file size. Pretty much all duplicates will be side by side but it will be time consuming to get rid of the extras)
There are two versions of wingmen replies based on their morale. In some cases there's quite a few enemy taunts, but the game seems to pick from only half a dozen really common ones for whatever reason depending on who you're flying against. There's a handful of taunts that are supposed to be for pirates if I'm not mistaken, but you only really have 3 missions where you fly against pirates.
For sure though, I've never heard at least half of these comms before (or just never paid close enough attention?). I was a bit amazed at the sheer variety of audio clips in the game. It's kind of funny that you often end up hearing the same half a dozen replies anyway.
I also find a number of the "second wing" comm lines interesting since it's fairly obvious the team had planned on a much more robust and fleshed out system for the secondary objectives that you would have had to step in and help complete from time to time, but it doesn't seem like the system got fully fleshed out in the final game. For me these clips are the most interesting as most of the pilots have options for being on the second wing.
