|Voice Commands||Source: Anarchy Online Manual Pages 82-84|
|Settings||The settings for ingame voices are found under Options (F10) – Audio. Here you can:
|Playing the voices||To play a voice, type
in the chat, where ( sound ) is the sound you want to play. The sounds available by default are:
E.g. to request help, type
When a voice command is written, a text is also displayed in the selected channel to everybody who has the channel open, no matter whether they can hear the voice played or not.
|Hearing ingame voices||
To hear the ingame voices you need to have
|Voice types||There are 7 breed & sex combinations:
For each breed & sex combination there are 4 voice types:
To switch to another voice type, type
in the chat, where (type) is the wanted voice type, or use the "Your voice"
|Macros and scripts||All chat commands can be used in macros and scripts, including /voice and
/voicetype. This means you can make macros and scripts including these commands.
A simple macro button for requesting help is created by typing
/macro Help /voice help
in the chat, and placing the text button that appears on your mouse pointer on the hotkey bar.
To script a voice command with other chat commands, add the commands in your script. Note that each voice already comes with a text file with output to the chat (for everybody to see) when the voice is played.
|Customising Voice Files||
Before starting to play around with the voice files, you might want to back up your voices folder, just in case you want to restore the original voice files without reinstalling.
The voice files, and their corresponding text files, can be found in this folder:
When given a /voice command, the client checks for an appropriate text file with a corresponding .wav file to play. The first file found that is appropriate gets played, and the check order is (if you type "/voice myloot")
Note that this means if you want to play a less specific version of an existing file, you need to remove the more specific one. E.g. if you want to play your own "help_01.wav" file no matter who shouts for help, you need to have a filenamed "help_01.txt" in the folder, and remove all other files ending with"help_01.txt". If you want your "help_01.wav" file played only for malecharacters (but for all male characters) you need to remove all files endingwith "male_style_help_01.txt" (and any character specific "_help_01.txt" files).
