    RACIAL WARNING SET
    Contestants must create a complete soundset to replace the standard wc3 racial warnings (i.e. "we need more gold", "we're under attack", etc)



    [​IMG]
    • Contestants must make an original sound set to replace the Ingame Racial Warnings (i.e. "we need more gold" "we're under attack" etc)
    • No submission may violate any of the site rules.
    • Contestants may use any tools and software that they legitimately own.
    • Submissions must be MP3 format. Please use a bitrate of at least 128Kbps.
      • Yes we know soundsets are normally in .wav format but for the sake of bandwidth these must be mp3. :p
    • Sound effects are allowed, but the majority of the entry must be spoken word.
    • Entries, at minimum, must contain the following 15 separate Mp3 files
      • We are being attacked
      • Our buildings are being attacked
      • Need more Lumber
      • Need more Gold
      • Need more Food
      • Need more Mana
      • Full Inventory
      • Hero is Dead
      • Gold Mine Low
      • Gold Mine Collapsed
      • Ally is being Attacked
      • Ally's buildings are being attacked
      • Ally's Hero Dead
      • You can not build there
      • Yourself stating your username, the name of the model, and that this is your submission for the Voice Acting Contest #3.
        Example: "Hi, this is shamanyouranus, and this is my entry for the Third voice acting contest, this is a racial warning set for _______."
        This audio file is required to prevent against rips and such, so it should sound just like the rest of your entry. Entries without this audio file will be disqualified, so DON'T FORGET!

      [*] These next ones are important:
      • To preserve anonymity, posts containing WIPs or compromising information about an entry will not be allowed. Contestants who reveal their entry will be disqualified.
      • Final entries are to be uploaded to the Pastebin and sent to Pyritie in a private message titled "Voice Acting Contest Submission." When uploading to the Pastebin, please check the "Long Time" box.

    Basically the whole point of this contest is to be anonymous. When the poll starts, an admin will put up a page where you can vote for your entry of choice. The entry names and positions are randomized with each page reload. This system worked well for the last voice acting contest so that's why we're doing it again

    [​IMG]
    • First Place: 50 reputation points and your entry on an award icon.
    • Second Place: 35 reputation points and an award icon
    • Third Place: 20 reputation points and an award icon

    [​IMG]
    If you would like to judge the contest simply make a post in this thread stating so. Preferably a user who is known to judge objectively, a background in broadcasting, acting, or a familiarity with audio programs would be great too (^^)

    JUDGE 1
    JUDGE 2


    [​IMG]

    Creativity Is the dialogue unique and interesting? Or did the contestant just repeat the ingame warnings? 00/10
    Quality How well are effects and filters, if any, used? Do you hear any static? Are there any "plosive" sounds? (meaning popping P's) or siblance? (meaning snake-sounding S's) 00/20
    Script How well do the lines fit the race? Are the things it says clever, or just generic? Is the warning phrased in a manner that grabs your attention without being too wordy? 00/20


    • 65 % of the winner shall be determined by the contest's appointed judge(s).
    • 35 % of the winner shall be determined by the results of an anonymous poll.

    [​IMG]
    The contest shall begin on 16 April 2011 and conclude on 31 May 2011, GMT

    PROGRAMS
    If you want to use AUDACITY (a great, free audio editor) then you will need an encoder called "Lame_enc.dll" to encode your audio to an mp3 format.

    here's the file for you guys
    View attachment audacity_LAME_encoder for mp3.rar

    simply unzip it somewhere on your computer and when you click "export to mp3" under the audacity "file" menu, simply select the file.
    Have fun you guys :D

    If I can record this without any fuzz, I'll be in.

    EDIT: Do the entries need to be to the word correct, or can you add little twists, for example: say Mr. Goblin enters, Goblins: We need more shinies!

    I guess you can replace 'model' with 'race'?

    Isn't it one unit of every race that speaks those lines? The Knight for the Human race, for example.

    must the races be the original four races, our can we pick any race we'd like (e.g. custom races)?

    tbh, custom races would benefit most from this contest.
