I think that I can manage to do some voiceacting myself. :jaw:

And I should be able to manage at least 2 accents: mine, and someone else's. :) No seriously, do you want a very posh English accent? And my accent too, of course. :p

Hey Styxx...without wanting to be Mr. Depressive here...but are you sure that it is already the right time to get the voice actors?

We made a bad thing at TBP. The voice actors were recruited about months before the scripts were sent out. It lead to the point that quite some actors were gone, once the scripts were ready.

Another thing....I suggest to start voice acting, once ALL missions are done. While our scripts were sent out, one of our missions needed some restructuring in the messages...so we had to rerecords. Believe me...start this acting thing later...it WILL safe you time and headache....I have my experiences with it...others from the TBP team will confirm that...

I think the scripts are ready, although i may not be right.

We don't have all missions done, but some are - and we have lots of stuff that needs to be recorded for command briefings and cutscenes. Leaving it all to the last minute would create too large a delay, unfortunately...

Its better to do stuff when you can do, rather than leaving it until later when realife might take over.

You must know...I guess you handled hundreds of voice acting sessions...

About the "Its better to do stuff when you can do"-point...the recordings of a person should be done all in one session. You will be slightly pissed once you've recorded one half of a large part and then the actor is gone. Well...I don't like two different voices for one person.
Same counts for rerecordings that are necessary if a small detail in a mission chatter has been changed.

..Styxx...that is just a warning...you will probably run into big problems that way. The voice acting is the very last thing to worry about...(that isn't true if you have made such a detailled campaign script like Skullar...but I have my doubts about that).

We are starting work now simply because it's work we can already do and, even if we don't have a release date, the sooner we get things done the sooner the campaign will be ready for all of you to enjoy. I don't see any problem in that, and if we run into the problems you've stated (like voice actors leaving) it will still be less work to do later if we left everything for when all the missions were done.

..."less" work? If a voice actor leaves after (s)he did already a big part? Sounds like the double voice thing I've mentioned before (and what I would never do). But ok...I'll see how that's gonna work. I hope it will run for ya...

Well, thanks for the advice. We'll run this more carefully, but we'll probably be able to keep a steady flux of work for the actors from now on...

Sheep is right, though it might sound like he's jumping of the deep end, hes not.  It would be an idea to keep his suggestions in mind... I know what he's talking about cus I've been there and done it.  It's a pain of a situation to be caught in.
