Default Better RAF Voices

Recently I started playing CloD again. I realised one of the reasons I've been unable to get much enjoyment from the game as an offliner is due to the exceptionally poor voice acting for the AI.

I always remembered the work of Compans, who did some truly outstanding voice acting for the original Il-2 series, and I began to see if it was possible to adapt the samples to clod.

Below is a link to the latest version for others to try out. Installation instructions are inside. Hope you like it!

http://www.mediafire.com/download/1u...ces%20V1.1.rar

For those who are incapable of opening a Readme file: Locate your own Actor1 folder inside Steam/steamapps/common/Il-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover/parts/bob/speech/GB
Take your original Actor1 folder and physically move it somewhere safe (don't you dare just copy and paste it!).
Once you've moved it, replace it with this Actor1 folder and you're good to go.

Tip: When downloading from Mediafire, Right-click on the download button and select "save target as" to avoid being mucked around by ads.

Cheers,
F_IV

Excellent post Feathered_IV, just what i was looking for to keep things fresh whilst i wait for TF4.01.
I had been fiddling about renaming certain sound files such as 'landing denied' etc but yours are much better.
I particularly like getting the WAF contol tower. Much more realistic.
Many thanks

PS let us know if you make any changes.

I haven't been over to atag. The speech files are not part of the encrypted game and are probably of as much interest to TF as a user made skin would be. I'd be curious to see if the new converted files would work for an MP game though.
