Voice-Acting For Parallax

Post by Rex Claussen » Sat Jun 20, 2020 17:58

The first episode of Parallax is Paranoia: Slight Return. As I previously indicated, the episode loosely recreates Paranoia within the Paranoid universe. The protagonist remains the same (Lt. Col. R. "Johnny" Alvarez, Ph.D, Prisoner I.D. HK-420B), and the game again starts with Alvarez in military confinement. The "resonance cascade" results in malfunctioning of the jail doors, and Alvarez is able to escape.

The objective of this episode is to disable satellite communication, so that Legion Earth (the organization in Paranoiac that helps Dr. Bellmer of Paranoid fame) can resist the evil alien overlords and their boot-licking underlings on Earth, thereby saving the planet, blah, blah, blah.

I would like to use a "handler", such as Col. Stinson in Paranoiac, who passes relevant information to the player via messages. Ideally, I'd like to use the same character (Col. Stinson) and the same voice actor (Rachael/Eruanna). However, in the event that Rachael is unwilling or unable to provide the voice acting I'm perfectly content to accept a suitable alternative. I will send Rachael a PM on ZDooM, as she doesn't seem to frequent these forums any more. But she might not be interested.

Accordingly, this is a shout out to anyone that wants to volunteer their voice-acting skills. The job is well-paying .... On second thoughts, the job is NOT well-paying; in fact it pays nothing at all. To boot, you'll get a cranky game-developer who is likely to get up in your business constantly because you've missed deadlines by a few hours. Etc.

I'll reprise my role. Sorry about not frequenting this forum as much anymore; when GZDoom moved out it became pretty silent and a lot harder to remember to keep checking.

Excellent!

I'll send you the scripts for your review soon. We can discuss any edits you wish to make, and then you can record the scripts. Mapping in the Paranoia: Slight Return episode is mostly done, but it will still take me a while to put in the gameplay and do internal testing before the episode is ready for play-testing. As such, there is no flaming hurry to do the voice-acting.

No worries. The only thing I might ask you to do is check your PMs on this forum. I am unable to stay logged in to these forums, and I had sent you a couple of PMs about this.

This appears to be a https issue. The forum for whatever reason is allowing non-https connections. I'll try and fix it so it redirects to https automatically. (btw it's good practice never to log in to non-https sites nowadays, browsers try to warn you about it)

And - done. It appears that phpBB3 now comes with its own .htaccess file and overwrites the one I had in place.
