one week before i recorded for map "Desertcamp", which will be released first a stand alone mod, the voice takes for synchronisation. 490 sentences with 4 characters plus 1 female version from jack (jacki then :D).
as you maybe know, you can select a character before playing, which have heavy influence of game style and of course there are two female characters.
the next task was to find a way to handle this switch in-game for the voice takes without work for me, so i simply inserted in my storytelling trigger (its the one which shows text, play voice and play a animation from the other guy), a second female sound slot, the engine now switch then automatically.
next problem was, that the time the showed text was setted for slow readers, so you could read the text and try to understand. but together with the spoken voice files, it was very annoying to wait because the spoken text was, lets say 4 seconds and the written one was shown 9 seconds. in a complete dialogue this was really annoying and destroyed the immersion complete.
so, because the spoken text is not ... very good :D ... (its my hobby project ^^), and showing the written text only the time like the length of spoken text, the player probably does not understand anything what happens... so a new solution for those two problems (there is a third inside) needed to be done:
- voice over needs to be adjustable
- a message log needed to be done.

this is how it looks now:

the message are sorted and marked and saved to savegame, so you can read the task and story with hints at any time you like. in other hand it gives me now more interesting possibilities for puzzles, which is on the other hand bad, because the main story line for that map is written and already recorded -.-
at least i will try to throw out the last few "go to tagpoint" hints and replace them with "follow the road to ... until you see a ..." .

some technically things for those who interested in:
the storyteller trigger which shows the animation, plays sound, shows the text and also can wait if player draws the walki talki (to be sure player is in mood to get new mission or infos), checks first the length of the spoken wav file, then (in default setting), it shows the text only that time and switch automatically to female alternative wav, if its in the slot and if player is female. the automatic messagelogger tracks all triggers which can show messages and provide them with a mark, like main mission, submission or other and gives also a timestamp. if player press tab to mission objective screen, he is on side 1 of 3, pressing tab two times more shows then the message log screen. believe it or not, i needed 3 days for that message logger, 3 hours for messages loggin & showing and 3 days to bring them in a nice viewable format and sort them. its also possible to let make the text size adjustable, but i'm not sure about, so feedback is welcome. a video which shows how the story voice over sounds like will be done in next hours, have to ride my bike now :)

It is actually good that you changed the driving mechanics because in vanilla farcry vehicles suck.

i'm currently try to finish my drone AI, but if i place several enemy drones they start to fight against all things in level, not only player. today i managed to forbid the anomalies to eat the dronepilot AI :D i can't show such elaborated things to much without make you boring, there is something to do, stay tuned :D
such new things which alter the gameplay needs much testing and every new strange failure leads into days of days in research -.-
today i throwed away the idea of a drone which player can repair and which follows the player as allied -.-
have so much ideas but it costs to much time ;(
