Quake4 is a carbon copy of Doom3 also developed by Games. It adds closed captioning so that all dialog and sound effects have text descriptions for hard of hearing or deaf to be able to play Quake4. People who are trying to learn more about the english language can also find it helpful because they can hear and read the dialog at the same time. The mod will feature a Visual Sound Radar. This gives an approximate idea of which direction and how far a sound is coming from. It is intended to be vague and not allow people to gain an unfair advantage. On the radar, you'll see colored blips that represent the colored captions. See a red caption and you'll see a corresponding red blip on the radar. Eventually people will be able to turn on or off the radar, sound effects captioning and dialog captioning. Doing so will allow them to customize how much captioning info they want. The mod is due Oct. 13th for the IGF 2007 mod competition. Last year, Doom3 was nominated for an award...

Greetings,

Quake4[CC] v1.0 has been released and submitted to the Independent Games Festivals' Modding competition for IGF 2007. This is a great achievement for Games[CC] who develops software to provide closed captioning for games.

Version 1.0 of the mod only works with Quake4 v1.2, not the latest version which is 1.3. Future updates of the mod will work for version 1.3 and implement many features that are not in this current alpha version.

Future versions will include a visual sound radar, more sound effects captioned, captions working in cinematics, menu options and captions appearing on the Strogg HUD.

Much work remains and we are looking for dedicated programmers to help us improve this unique mod.

About Games[CC]
Gamescc.rbkdesign.com
Games[CC] mods exsisting games to add closed captioning to them. While most games (but not all) include sub-titles for dialog, many do not caption the sound effects from weapons or enemies. Adding closed captions helps hearing impaired and deaf players to experience the game as intended by being aware of the sound clues and information they may miss without the use of closed captions.

Games[CC]'s first completed project is Doom3[CC] which in addition to adding closed captions also features a unique visual sound radar. This visual sound rader gives players an approximate idea of where a sound is coming from by vaguely indicating distance and direction. The Doom3[CC] comes complete with 5 languages (English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish). Options to turn on captions for both dialog and/or sound effects. Most dialog and sound effects captioned and finally the visual sound radar. The mod has received critical praise, been featured on cover discs for UK's PC Gamer and was also nominated for the IGF Choice Award for Best Doom3 Mod of 2005.
