By MenrvaSpeech Enhancement
February 13th, 2019 (1st Release)
>For Strike Fighters 2 games
This package is my personal enhancement meant to improve the consistency and quality of the in-game speech. I tweaked the SpeechSystem.ini file to include the additional SF2NA voices ("call the ball" and "Vampire") separately from those of the TACC; the additional SF2NA voices are now meant to be those of a Navy Controller, or something like that. By chance, I have found and fixed a stock bug in the original SF2 SpeechSystem.ini file.
With some .wav editing, I created a generic Hawkeye TACC using the original, female Red Crown voice. Additional .wav files have been created so that in-game flights and Departure mention Hawkeye instead of Red Crown. For those who prefer Red Crown instead of the more generic Hawkeye, alternative files are provided.
I hex-edited the .str file so that subtitles properly display Hawkeye instead of Red Crown (and viceversa, if you choose to use the alternative files). Other little fixes were also made; for instance, you'll no longer see "Call the ball" (capital letter after a comma), now it correctly is "call the ball".
This enhancement is a mixture of Polak's beautiful speech pack for SF1 games, and of SkateZilla's and Rends' improved Hawkeye voices; my thanks for their work!
By default, the package uses my new Hawkeye TACC. If you want Red Crown back, just copy the files inside the "Alternative TACC - Red Crown" folder over the default ones.
You need to tweak the NATIONS.ini file so that each country has the following:
Otherwise, the countries using the SpeechUSN.cat will be using the stock (and horrible) SF2NA speech. Alternatively, you can create a SpeechUSN subfolder inside the Speech folder, containing all of the new .wav files; basically, a copy of the Speech folder named SpeechUSN, placed inside the Speech folder. If you want to conserve space and optimise your own mod folder, I highly suggest the mentioned tweak to the NATIONS.ini file. You have been warned.
>Credits (in no particular order):
-Polak, for his SF1 mod which enhances all of the original SFP1 speech sound files.
-Rends and SkateZilla, for the improved SF2NA Hawkeye voices, which I have tweaked a bit.
I included the original readme files from the mentioned mods, to the end of giving proper credit to everyone involved directly or not.
This is a freeware; yet it can be redistributed ONLY in other CombatACE mods/mod packages.
This mod may NOT in any way, shape or form be used in any payware additions.

By RendsThis is an updated version of the awacs voice made by SkateZilla based on the original Thirdwire voice samples.
Tweaked it to match better with other radio transmissions.

By theregMultinational Speech pack version 1.0 for Strike Fighters 2
SHould work on any type of SF2 installation.
This is a compilation of speech packs brought together by me from original files mainly made for IL-2 Sturmovik and released as part of DBW. Due to the limited phrases available, it is intended more for immersion than for accuracy. I can't claim any credit for the actual recording, but I did some re-editing and re-processing to better bring the files in line with SF2. I've also included a re-processed version of Gramps' Russian Speech Pack available on Combatace.
BE WARNED: If you speak any of these languages you may not enjoy how they fit into the game. For the most part I tried to find phrases that fit the different SF2 files in general meaning, but they are far from perfect, and a few are actually just random.
You may want to turn on subtitles, at least until you get used to the different phrases.
Special note to my fellow New Zealanders: I humbly apologise for lumping us in with the Aussies, but it was the closest I could get ;-)
Credits and huge thanks:

Place whichever pack you desire into the Speech sub-folder of your main mod folder
eg: ...username/Saved Games/Thirdwire/StrikeFighters2 Europe/Speech/German
then go to the flight folder and open the NATIONS.ini file to edit whatever nationality you want to use that particular language. Making sure to use the EXACT same spelling as the folder you're pointing to.
SpeechFile=German <------edit this line
DisplayName=East German Air Force
SpeechFile=German <------------------and again
It's as easy as that.
You can use different languages for as many different countries as you wish and whenever you fly for that particular country, that is the language you will hear.
This pack is strictly freeware. Use however you want, so long as it's free.
By WrenchSF/Wo*/SF2 New "Taking Damage" sound

By Rambler 1-1This is a mod that I have been working on with the intent of replacing the generic wingman voices with those of the Star Fox team, as in Star Fox 64. This means you'll no longer be flying with "anonymous wingmen #1, 2 and 3", you'll be flying with Falco, Peppy and Slippy.
It's a bit of a tribute to SF64, because it was one of the first games to have full voice acting, rather then just text. Some of the voices and quotes are legendary as well. I have tried to fit in as many phrases from SF64 as I could, and replaced some calls and responses with generic chatter.
You may have to play Starfox 64 (or at least know something about it) to appreciate this mod.
don't forget to read the README!
