    Icon3 SOUNDMOD-Revolutions Info for IBRR 8.0

    Announcement for Soundmod for IBRR 8.0

    Well i know waiting is not a good thing but waiting for some real thing really worths the patience.So to you all i want to announce some work we are putting not only for IBRR 8.0 and also Soundmods release for it.Pseudoromanus and Pliniux are my heroes in this project.Also a short preview is not so far away.Well some components of Soundmod which i want to announce you

    - New added 15 new tracks.
    - Added the feature of winter and summer music difference.In winter more depressive and in summer more exciting tracks will play.
    - Only in soundmod we added encouraging speeches in battlefield and when marching for Romans ofcourse in Late Latin
    - Added new horse sounds and new charge cries and taunts.
    - Thanks to Pseudoromanus and Pliniux we created a complete Late Latin voicemod.I wont give further info about this because i dont want to put out the surprise but i mean a complete voicemod
    - The Hunnic voice mod is in recording process i hope to finish it with this release.
    -Slowly i started to create a Germanic voicemod.(We use the gallic voicemod for all Barbarian factions which is not very accurate as most of them are germanic factions)I am preparing a list.Maybe i can show some elements and differ the Germanic factions from Picts.

    Well i put these to show you that your patience will worth it.

    good idea.

    a question: what is that gallic voice mod? i mean, we have no gauls here, no one is speaking celtic - with the notable exception of picti. i guess this mod includes "germanic" voices.

    since is matter of improvement, i ask myself if the latin voice mod could be implemented too. not only because we have no unit which says "triariii!!!" but also because the english accent in latin was too heavy for me.
    since linguistic studies shows up that the late latin speaking was more similar to actual italian; the "c" appears to became not always hard sound like the "k", but becames "sweet" close to some wovels, that are "i" and "e". like in italian. i give my disposition.
    i have not registering stuff. however, i think i could get them in a month. if someone could make me a list of things to say, i will try to do them; so, this project needs a coordinator who knows how to mod sound files.

    Gallic voice mod is in downloads section made by shigawire for EB.I implanted it to IBFD . I know it is not historically accurate but as we know barbarians were not speaking english either. My aim was to give some ancient language taste to player. I also implanted latin voice mod. It contains commands,tactics every sound but the unit names. Maybe we can add latin unit names or (more sensible) we can edit the text files to erase unit name descriptions from romans. I think a germanic voice mod would be great because nearly half of the factions are germanic. But my german is poor. I can make a list which will contain the speeches and if someone can translate it to german or another accurate language then i can mod the sound files and text files and implant them to the game and live happily ever after.

    tiome ago i've found a site about reconstructed goth language of around 400s. it was based on ulfilas' bible translation in goth and some other reconstruction. also was featuring some other germanic and protogermanic stuff and relating differences in languages among tribes and the possible use of a common germanic language for basic understanding, really similar to goth.

    i'm actually seaching other similar stuff about transformation of latin into what will be italian and in general "lingue romanze", i mean provenzal-franch, spanish, portuguese, rumenian and local variants of dialects, like the "ladino" spoken in some mountain valleys of north italy, austria and switzerland, or the dead languages like the langue d'oc.
    - i know this stuff, but i've read it on my italian books of latin i have no idea if there is something on the web.

    -edit:
    found something too.
    just for start...

    I think the sound mod is great!

    one major problem though the use of the F word when troops are shouting insults at each other, it is unsuitable for a mod that is hosted on a pg 13 site, it doesnt add much to the expirance of the battle anyway and should be removed when u release the next version of ur sound pack,

    apart from that u have done well!

    something went wrong for me.

    (brb to make pics)


    when i downloaded the files from filefront i did it in the sequence of 1,2,3 as i was supposed to. then as i extracted it to the main rtw file i overlaped all 3 files so it was saved over each other.





    i played the game on a custom match to see if it had installed properly. I can hear the latin, but i already had the latin mod before. But when i exited i got this message







    i dont get what happned btw i have 2 copies of the latin mod now because i had installed it into bi beforehand. the sound file is in 2 spots, do i have to erase one of them? I also erased the original sound file and replaced it with the original bi to place the "oldevent" with (i thought) any sudden errors. I belive i did something stupid by doing that. please help

    Have you tried to play Battle of Chalons by any chance ?

    if so thats sort of message will come out when you exit RTW.I will get eventually historical battles updated with new units

    as for the rest - sorry but I can only speak for the music sound tracks I have worked on: Music DAT and Music IDX files goes to main sounds folder of RTW NOT to BI sound folder.Only descr_sounds_music file should go to main BI data folder

    Usual rules of backing up old files should be applied

    now off to see new episode of "Supernatural" :tooth:

    BTW I don't think you should rename events.idx file...but not sure if that would effect latin voices

    Please make a fresh install of bi 1.6 and then IBFD 6.05 and then sound mod.It is just a copy paste business.I have changed all the sound ids because i had to plug in all the voice mods.So you need a fresh installation.And dont forget to rename the files i mentioned in the readme.


    Guys in my spare times i work hard for an update.Please make some comments about what is wrong or what can be added.Thanks :hmmm:

    Default Re: =SOUND MOD for INVASIO BARBARORUM=

    i have to erase my entire mod folder and make a clean rtw folder. then downlad the mod and the update then the sound folder again. thats 1 days worth of work. but ill do it anyways. i love this mod.

    I would suggest adding additional music tracks for more variety to the battles to enhanse critical moments of tension.The voice mods are excellent ....I even play with them only turning down the music.
    Excellent work
    I dont mind a bit harsh language in the back ground to spice it up
    Look forward to your next release

    Adding tracks does not a lot in way of adding more variaty to custom battles.During the battle usually only 5 random tracks are played, most of the time the same ones over and over - not sure if that got anything to do with RTW hardcods.Anyway more tracks - bigger the file ,I'm not 100% sure but there is a limitation to how large Music.DAT file can be.

    Thanks and the next release will satisfy you i guess cause i will add some more tracks.But as HansKloss mentioned the size will be big i am afraid but there is no other way.Sound files are big.

    as i sat at my desk in a custom battle in barebones hearing the britsh scream out cool arnold and r lee ermy quotes that makes me want to play the game more. i thought of something.

    i already added the rtr custom music and the latin voice mod for my vanilla folder. If i indeed make a copy of my vanilla folder it would be of the same type that i had originally placed invasio on. So i know i screwed up my original invasio copy by trying to add the sound install, wouldnt i be doing the same thing by adding it once again? Could it be the rtr and latin voice mod messing up the sound mod? or can i add it without a mess up? I dont want to have to make a third copy of the game
