    Ironically, when you've forgotten about one of your cavalry units and it's getting shot to pieces by an enemy infantry unit that rushed up to it and opened fire, the idiot won't say a word about it.

    Trying not to get your general killed would be a start, I mean if he's spamming it; then it's for a reason. I'm sure though, one of the audio options handle it.

    Who said anything about my general being killed? This spam happens if you use your general to attack units, which I do often to get them to break..and it is annoying to hear this crap

    Your perfect solution would be play the battles with no sound whatsoever thus you do not have to listen to the panicky fellow informing you of what is happening.Chill man its a game don`t get so angry you will burst a blood vessel

    No, that is not going to cut it..the sound is one of the best parts, especailly considering I have an excellent sound mod, thanks though. This voice has bugged me from day one, same with MTW2 or maybe Kingdoms added it cant recall, but it really bothers the hell out of me still.

    Just forget I asked..obviously nobody feels the same way or knows how to address my question

    If im not mistaken there are certain triggers which trigger the differant voices

    If you want to spend the time use PFM to go in and look at the music.pack file and change the triggers or something of that nature.

    It can be annoying but i wouldn't turn it off it can be very helpful. In one battle against the Russians, the battle was at its height until their unit of artillery managed to send a cannonball right through Napoleon's general staff. Luckily it didnt kill him but i wouldnt have realised he was being targeted until the advisor told me! On the other hand, the "our men are running sir" is extremely annoying, and its the last thing you want to hear when you begin to lose a battle

    Afaik, this is only said once during a single battle, when your general comes under the first attack, no? It's hardly spamming.
    Anyway, if it bothers you, I'm sure you can mod it out. Find the offending sound files in PFM and create a minimod substituting empty ones for the current ones.

    Guys, telling him to chill out is hardly of any help here. He wants the annoying spam to end and it is his choice. I don't know anything about modding and I cannot help but if you have a possibility to check that please do so. Don't tell the guy to calm down, i doesn't help.

    LOL! If only we could say that to TW.com, .org, .net, Lordz members and patrons without them getting so bent and uppity as we sometimes have to endure complete nonsense. It seems fair to me. LOL. The in-game Sir, Sir buzz is about as annoying. I am tired of being at odds with members who are selectively helpful. So I mostly just read these days and filter, sighing often. I am not so irate as most might think, rather quite jovial...on most occasions. However, I am fully capable of surmising a battlefield with these notifications or being told a unit is running...after all I have been modding and playing these games since MTW. Not to mention my past military experience in the real world(!!!). If not then, why now? Effect? Ambience? Depth? I could think of a million things that would add more depth than that buzzzzzzzzzzzzz! Sir Sir..., our unit is running..., the day is lost..., glorious victory sir is now... wubbawubbawubba ... and shut up.

    I want more character depth or even even character immersion, general eye view, an ancillary list that is more complex so not every encounter is the same on any level...acute attention to detail on diplomacy, uniform and weapon design and variance options, a recruitment system based on population, with full repurcussions for repression and excess. Active rebels and rebellions...hell, those Brits watch the BBC News ... comme ca! ...and that is only the beginning.

    The fact that you can't get modding tools or any kind of modding support from SEGA/CA is an indicator of the inherent inadequacy of these more recent games. Doesn't take long for a mod to run a-foul and you're stuck starting it all over...because vanilla just doesn't cut the mustard. My condolences to those that find it acceptable or use more limited mods. By G-d, don't let me start a gaming company.

    I just MADE that little mod (see sig). Unfortunately I haven't figured out how Squid has set up our new DL section. Where's the BUTTON I use to upload this bugger?

    Got it! That was a miserable delay, but the mod is now uploaded. I have no clue why I was not able to use the upload features since the server switch, but I can NOW.

    Because of the massive delay the file is in BETA so if you use it, be sure to write back with your experience.
