"Legends from the Booth" Play-By-Play

Recommended Posts

This is a lifesaver. It creates a file about 1/2 the size of the -sndstream option. This should make HCL happy.

For those trying this at home, the code should actually be this:

sx -ps2stream *.wav -.dat -mt_blk

I'm sure it was just a typo :-)

Thanks for asking. I am 95% done indexing all the Vin Scully files. Mel Allen will be next. Throughout the process, I have been replacing Krukow with Ernie Harwell or Vin Scully or a blank if I wasn't able to find a suitable replacement call. The project will start to go really quickly once the indexing of the replacement sounds is done. If you guys could hear the replacement audio that has slowly but surely been working it's way into this sound file, you'd be pretty blown away.

This is one of the most awesome mods I've read about on here. Thank you so much for taking on this endeavor, it could possibly (probably) be the most game-changing mod here. Keep us updated - I patiently await it's completion!

You know, one of the few reasons I like to play new games on the consoles, like the show, is for updated commentary. I am so excited to hear this when it comes out, nice work!

There's quite a few Mel Allen files. He makes all the basic calls. You just don't have as many variations as Vin Scully has. I will splice Mel and Ernie's name so that it sounds like Vin is exchanging with Mel & Ernie like Kuip and Krukow do. If you look on the first page of this thread, there is a link where you can download the stadium announcements and the team announcements will be done soon. I am still looking for somebody to help with putting player names together if anybody has experience working with the player name files. I will keep posting updates on the first page of the thread so you don't have to go to the last page of this thread to see the latest news.

I can do the player names, for Vin Scully. I really want to get the Scully mod out there but it appears you are doing something entirely different.

Not a problem HCL. You are welcome to download the Scully names I uploaded and create pname.dat's out of them. My mod will have Scully, I just want to mix the other two guys in. I always intended to have a Scully only mod and if you want, you can do that mod and I'll send you my spreadsheet.

It's going slowly but surely. I just ran into some more Mel Allen sound bits from Tony LaRussa 4 (I know it bombed) but it still has some material we can mod. I am indexing first/last names from this. If anybody wants to help indexing names, I can still use help in that area.

I am taking a month to cleanup my original HighHeat sound files and when I'm done with that, I'll dive in to merging this stuff into MVP.

HCL, you will first need to add some silence to the end of the Scully files. Most wave editors will allow you to insert silence at the end of the file. That will usually take care of the problem.

This is going to be one of the best mods around, can't wait. Classic voices would greatly improve the game. I grew up with Curt Gowdy, Tony Kubek, and Joe Garagiola. Would love to see those added one day. Thanks for the great work.
