Does anyone know how to extract the sounds from Emperor? Not the dialog, but "They die too quickly!" Or "Vectors re-set!" Or "For House Atreides!" That sort of thing. Is there a program to let me at 'em or is it impossible?

You have found the problems with the .cmp format. I've noticed that there may be a relationship with the .aud format, used by D2000 and TS... look for a downloadable program called Aud2wav on fed2k, and see if any combination of decoding the .cmps through a2w and from mp3 to wav with CoolEdit or something.

Nope, I don't seem to be able to get it working... What's CoolEdit?

I have a similar question. I asked on the old boards but no one really gave a credible reply. I want my Guild to only ever say: "The Guild is ALWAYS ready!" - that's the coolest line in any RTS ever made. (I also really liked: "Turn 'em and burn 'em!" )

Would it be possible to edit the voices to always say only the lines I want them to??? Some of the Ordos voice acting is utterly horrendous, I'd also like to have those replaced with better lines.

And if it was changed like that, could I still play in QM with the modifications running?

CoolEdit was a music editor that Katzy was using. Nav, we can't do it yet, because we haven't figured out the format. But we might be able to add mp3 files to the bag file which are of the same format as the sfx (not voice) files, and refer to them in the housesfx tex ini files. Try it.

I didn't understand that I'm afraid, maybe I'm just thick. In any case, I've managed to extract some of the files and save them as MP3, MP2, MP1, mpg, and wav files. None of them work. Curses. >:(

Yes Navaros it is quite easy to change the voices...........i have done so.... i made my chem trooper talk like the Devastator and say: "They're coming with ME !!!"

And i have made my laser tanks talk like the inkvine catapult and say: "They'll BEG to DIE!!!"

Also you can make them say all of their original lines plus the new one you gave them....or you can make them just say one of the original lines ... or just the new line... what ever your heart desires........
