Speech Enhancement
February 13th, 2019 (1st Release)
by Menrva


>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:

SpeechFile=USAFSpeech.cat
SpeechTextFile=USAFSpeechText.str

instead of:

SpeechFile=SpeechUSN.cat
SpeechTextFile=SpeechTextUSN.cat

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.
