I have one tech question and one freespace question
For some reason the speech sounds lkke it's underwater. Especially during the briefing and in game. It's not the end of the world or anything. I read the subtitles  anyway but just wanted to see if anyone else experienced this. Like if I watch the videos for the freespace walkthrough..the speech sounds flawless.

Also I hear there are lasers in this game.. and I'm assuming they are like the lasers on the Lucifer?

Do I ever get these lasers for my ships?

Thanks !!!

All the weapons you'll get in the official campaigns are pew-pew pulses, not beams. You can use beams on your fighter in some user-made campaigns. 'Lasers' in FreeSpace are Star Wars style slow-moving blobs of light.

The speech should not sound underwater! Could you maybe a record a sample?

There are certain programs that are meant to demonstrate capabilities of sound cards that will add post-processing effects to any sound that is currently playing.  EAX is the most famous, though it's not used much these days.  It's entirely possible that one such program is running and applying an underwater post-processing sound effect.

Thanks for the replies guys!!!

I m sorry but I may have used the wrong description of what im hearing. It actually sounds more like a robot is talking than underwater. It's just not a smooth speech. It's only the talking. Sounds, explosions and music are fine.

I have no idea how to record it while I'm playing. I also don't have EAX. Could it be the build I'm using? I'm using an old build as I don't update. I figured the game runs fine( besides the speech audio) so why update it. My fear is I'll lose my save progress if I update.

Your save will carry forward fine.
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

If it sounds like robotic speech, then you are probably hearing the synthesized speech generated by the computer.  If you don't have speech files installed for your current campaign, this will happen (if you have selected the option in the launcher).
