Hi, just dl'ing & installing TBP. Been all over the place finding bits here & bits there (there I go, sounding like Marcus Cole).
Got TBP DVD1 & Zathras. Also, updated to 3.6.12 inf and the 5.5g launcher.
Anyway, seems to be working, except....
I tried the 5.5b launcher that came with the DVD1, and now the 5.5g and there are a couple of things with both that are not huge, but might be worth attending to.
1)- The 'Read Me' button on the Welcome screen of the Launcher takes me to the FreeSpace Wiki Homepage. Is that what was intended?
2)- The reason that I was looking for the Read me is that under 'Speech' in the launcher, I was hoping to load a different Sim Speech. Now, on the release page for DVD1, it mentioned providing alternate voices (with 'the hard to find Anna', being the best). I have been unable to find where these voice files are, or how to install. The launcher drop-down only lists 'Microsoft Sam', and the 'Get Additional Voices' button takes me to the Microsoft Download site for 'Speech SDK 5.1'. That didn't seem to be what I was after.
3)- The prime motivator behind the desire for SimSpeech is that in several campaigns that I have tried, there is NO voice track - only printed conversation tracks. Is this correct, that there is no speech audio tracks for some of these in-game campaigns or briefings?
(PS I know the DVD intro page says to ask questions on another thread, but its been dormant for months. Hope here is OK.)
