  1. Pretty weird! It could be a hint as to why some players experience the volume differently, but I'm glad to hear it's working for you now. I've also finally gotten around to sit down once more and churn out three new voice packs, including the two requested in this thread, Isokaze and Haruna. For the moment I'd rather not take any more requests, as I'm not sure when the mood strikes me again and I hate to let people wait on something (I originally thought I'd get Isokaze done way sooner). But, I hope this new series enhances the gameplay experience of a few people, and maybe there will be a series 3 some day. :)
  2. This is valuable feedback. Thank you! You're the second person mentioning the volume, though it seems perfectly fine on my end. I wonder if it might have something to do with audio codecs or drivers? Or it could just be my own ears somehow picking up things differently. I'll have to consider carefully what to do here -- more feedback from other users would be greatly appreciated. Ultimately, I'd like to tweak it in the way that suits most people. As for the alert, should it not play just once per enemy ship, i.e. that no single ship gets the audio alert twice? This is still a lot of alerts, but I had opted for this approach as I would like to keep a certain level of "voice saturation" over the course of a match, and the spotter alert seemed like a good option for the early phase of the game when there is not much else going on. The big problem with how this game handles sounds is that even the same sound file can overlap with itself. It would be so much easier if the voices had a "cooldown", or if a modder could define delays between them.
  3. Whew, thanks for getting back to me! I was kind of wracking my head over where the issue could be. Glad it's now solved, and I hope you like the mod! I had put Isokaze on the backburner as the only person asking for her could not get the current mod working, but I guess she's back on the list now.
  4. Sorry to hear it's still not working -- I just tried with a separate installation on another machine, but could not reproduce the issue here. :I If I can think of any other possible solution I'll shoot you a PM. Maybe other players can pitch in with additional advice either in this thread or one of the others! Edit: Just now I see that the devs have, just a few days ago, added API support for permanent mod recognition by the game client. I'll have to read up on the specifics, but I will try to convert the mod to this new method in an effort to save users the need to move folders after every patch. If I get this working, maybe it'll solve your issue, too!
  5. This is tricky; I'm not sure what else it could be. I assume other players' voice mods would not work for you as well, then? A drastic step could be to try and repair the game client (or outright reinstall it), then repeat the procedure, but obviously that would be time intensive and thus a bit of a bother... I have heard from some people that their voice mods would work only if they set Voiceover Language to "National", but even if it were just this, the mods should still show up in your list. :(
  6. So "Standard" shows up, but not the mods? Hmm. Have you removed only the files in the redundant res/banks folder, or the banks directory itself? I think the folder itself would have to be removed, so that the game may not recognize it as a source at all, regardless of whether it is empty or not. I also notice your game directory is called "World_of_Warships2" -- does that mean there is another game folder?
  7. I think I see the problem: Your dropdown menu does not even list "Standard" as an option, which should be on the top. This does not mean that you will never be able to return to the game's default voices, but rather that the list of voices is too long to fit into the menu! Try to first open the menu like you did on the screenshot, then move the mouse cursor inside, and use your mouse-wheel to scroll the list up/down. This should enable you to browse through other voice packs, provided the game has managed to locate them. I assume that the KC mods would be located somewhere above Ashigara.
  8. Yes, I think some of the built-in voices are just ... a little unsuitable, perhaps, but this is of course entirely a matter of taste. :) I did not originally plan to consider requests, but since you're the first person commenting, and as I find myself agreeing that Isokaze would make a fine addition, I'll add it to my to-do list! Though, it may take a little while as I usually only work on stuff like this on the weekends. I don't think it will be too hard to collect suitable samples for her, though. From what I can see, there is a lot I can use. Did you try the troubleshooting step outlined above? Do the new voice options not show up at all, or can you select them, but they do not play? Also make sure that they are in the correct patch version directory; right now the files should be located in: \World_of_Warships\res_mods\0.6.13.1\banks\Mods
  9. Ahoy captains! SERIES #1 Following Wargaming's recent changes to the way sound mods work, I've taken the opportunity to not only update my previous Sendai mod, but also to add both Nachi and Nagato to the fleet -- projects which I had begun some time ago, but simply left unfinished. My goal with these mods was to add some female anime voiceovers that sound a little more serious and mature compared to the various "schoolgirl" voices, thus expanding the variety of available voice packs. Nachi, the soldier: Speaking in a bold and masculine manner, Nachi may be the ideal choice if you're looking for a female captain who sounds like a professional military officer, at least as far as movies and videogames are concerned. She is a serious but gregarious fighter who embodies the samurai warrior archetype, up to inviting you to a drink after a successful battle. Recommended for: Cruisers and Battleships. Nagato, the amazon: Serious and somewhat intimidating, Nagato nonetheless still has a soft side to her voice and keeps calm even under pressure. Compared to Nachi the fighter, Nagato is a commander who is used to plan and lead major maritime operations, befitting her original role as flagship of the IJN's Combined Fleet. Recommended for: Battleships and Carriers. Sendai, the daredevil: Bridging the gap between the aforementioned "schoolgirl" voices and the maturity of Nachi or Nagato, Sendai falls somewhere in-between. Youthful and energetic, she's a confident swashbuckler who enjoys living on the edge and boasting of her exploits. Recommended for: Destroyers and Cruisers. Samples Nachi: "Enemy to starboard! Take aim carefully!" (played upon: focus fire quick command) Nagato: "Damn... the enemy fleet is pretty good." (played upon: about to lose) Sendai: "Ain't this great! I love it." (played upon: enemy ship sunk) Downloads Nachi: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zTnYfrMo2EWIWHaJldVQZKMh2_Gh0eNV Nagato: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DmRw0IdJ2X3akHAAID9F_jQpBGrjtWNy Sendai: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cC_SEAU9RBXwz1fVc3Sy8RSxevmfLTHv SERIES #2 After a few weeks of being busy with other things, I've finally managed to cater to a few requests that had piled up. With exception of Isokaze (aka "Saberkaze", given her voice actress' role in the popular Fate franchise), these mods are probably on the less serious side. As I had already accomplished with series 1 what I initially set out to do, I figured there'd be no harm in adding a couple voices that are even more on the "fun" side of things. I particularly like how Zui turned out, as she's quite the chatterbox, which gave me lots of material to crop and rearrange. Isokaze, stern protector: A mature voice belying her young appearance, Isokaze makes for a viable alternative to Nachi in that her personality seems similarly disciplined and focused on the action at hand. She shares a voice actress with Saber from the Fate franchise, with a noticeable similarity in her tone and speech patterns. Recommended for: Destroyers and Cruisers. Haruna, the maiden: The epitome of purity, Haruna is a soft-spoken personality with a big heart, so humble that she speaks of herself in third person. Her very being seems consumed with an intense need to care for her friends and comrades, all too easily at the expense of her own safety or comfort. Recommended for: Cruisers and Battleships. Zuikaku, the tsundere: A talented if hotheaded individual, Zuikaku intends to dominate the skies and show everyone how it's done. She takes great pride in her skill and, although not actively fostering an air of arrogance, can very quickly get very upset if her abilities are called into question. As quick to forgive as she is to take offense, her spirit and dedication still make her a good friend to have around .. if one can handle her occasional outbursts. Recommended for: Carriers. Samples Isokaze: "Enemy fleet sighted. All ships, prepare to attack!" (played upon: spotting multiple ships) Haruna: "Haruna will give it all she's got!" (played upon: activating DFAA) Zuikaku: "Fuel, ammo... planes are all fueled up and ready to go." (played upon: battle start) Downloads Isokaze: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1wuDh3emamWHY37Aki3QLbir9HW7dk9ho Haruna: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1FaTTOcluWps9pStqm48Z3cXSs7BUxwCQ Zuikaku: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1sF5bVmbFJ4De69qG9iTxPfwGmxyVnfMl Description These voicepacks have been created from scratch using files from the browser game and include a few manually cropped or merged voicelines to suit various events and triggers in WOWS as best as possible. Due to the absence of carrier-related voicelines in the original, a number of pilots from the Yokosuka Girls Maritime High School have volunteered as air crew (meaning: fighter/bomber/spotter voices use HSF Harekaze's files), allowing this mod to support carrier gameplay as well. Notably, Harekaze's voicelines are also used in quick commands from other players, so that users of these mods will always hear the chosen captain for their own commands, whereas other ships will be represented with different voices, adding to the immersion of a diverse fleet. Instructions & Troubleshooting Download and unzip the chosen archive (or all of them) into your client's installation directory as follows: .../World_of_Warships/res_mods/0.7.0.1/banks/Mods/ After successful placement, new options (KC Nachi, KC Nagato, KC Sendai) should be available in the battle voiceover dropdown of the game's settings -> audio menu. The mods should hopefully remain compatible with the game for some versions to come; just remember to move the mod's folder from the 0.6.13.1/banks/Mods/ directory into the same folder of the game's current version number. If you cannot see the new options in the audio menu, please check if your game has a duplicate "banks" folder in the normal "res" directory and rename or move it elsewhere (safer than deletion), as it may override any and all voice mods you have installed. I hope you will enjoy these new voices. See you on the high seas!
  10. Ahoy, captains! Background I've only recently watched KanColle and, enjoying it way more than I had at first anticipated, decided to try and get some of the kanmusu's voices into World of Warships. Many of them were already available thanks to the work of Rswifhand, but one of my favorite characters - energetic light cruiser Sendai - was declared unsupported and the files provided do not make use of WOWS' quick commands. Thanks to another player and their excellent tutorial, I've now decided to take a shot at creating my own version of this mod. This is my first attempt at a voice mod for this game, so if you do encounter any mistakes, please drop me a line and let me know.

  11. Understood, thanks for letting me know! I might just drop by sometime tonight.
  12. Ahoy~ I've been eyeing you gals for some time, but with the recent announcements in regards to clan bases, I thought I should finally consider an application to BLUMR in earnest. What are the expectations towards members in terms of activity? My gaming times are a bit erratic (especially during work-days), and I habitually do not stick to any one game forever but rather switch focus every few months or so. For example, I just returned after having been absent from WOWS for more than a year, and though I currently take to the seas on a daily basis, I cannot say how long this would last, so I would like to avoid raising expectations I cannot meet. In short: are you only looking for dedicated full-time members aiming to stick with the group for years, or would you also consider "casual" hangers-on who are just looking for an uncertain number of weeks/months of fun, and on top of that may occasionally play with other friends rather than the clan? I suppose I'm looking less for a clan in the traditional sense and more for a community of fun people whose division I could join whenever I'm starting the game. Though I'm sure these drawbacks to my application should at best qualify me for a place on the benches, depending on the nature of your outfit, I might still be able to add something, if you have the space to spare. On the upside, I consider myself a generally laid-back, friendly player with ships on every tier from I-VIII and experience with all ship roles, who plays a mix of PvP, Coop and Operations, has a bunch of semi-customized anime mods installed and, obviously, likes Haifuri a lot. Warships.Today stats are here. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu! >_<
  13. As a workaround, another player has created two mods to "fix" the missing quick commands. After installation, they have to be toggled in the Audio settings, but on the upside this also means you can use these voices on any other ship without having to transfer the captain: Akeno & Mashiro (Harekaze) Thea & Wilhelmina (Graf Spee) But I too would hope that, some day, the studio would provide fixed voiceovers as an integral part of the client. Many people who purchased these ships may not know about these workarounds, and as such will feel the frustration outlined in the opening post.
  14. HSF Harekaze - nation flag on wrong camo

    I recently noticed that the "bare" appearance of the Harekaze features the anime's Yokosuka school emblem in place of a Nation Flag, persisting when one mounts the free Type 10 or any of the normal camos. The "anime" camo, however, has no Nation Flag at all. Wouldn't it make sense to give the Y467 camo the school's flag, and the default/historical appearance the flag of Japan, like with other IJN ships? Alternatively, I'm sure people would not mind if the anime camo would feature the Blue Mermaids flag, too. It is already in the game files as a free commemorative flag (so far only available in the Asia region, sadly) and this organization is, in a way, a good representation of the HSF's "nation".
