option to disable speech

PostTue May 01, 2012 3:01 pm

Hi,

i'd like to request an *option* to disable larry and NPC speech.

i'm certain i'm in the minority, perhaps because i'm not american, but i was not a fan of hearing larry's voice, i prefer reading the text boxes in my inner monologue ;)

perhaps even seperate options, so NPC voiceovers can remain, but not larry's.

please....and thankyou!

I have to provide a hearty Fourth on that.

I just reviewed for purposes of voting on 'looks of larry ' in that Survey section the videos on:
http://www.allowe.com/Larry/

I had to go back to review to vote on that as I had not recalled all the games I had played.. I'm old.

Anyway when I got to Larry Love for Sail I had a recall cringe as soon as I heard the voice they used for Larry there. I had forgotton how bad it was.

I found that voice ruined Larry for me. So YES allow a total disable of Larrys voice especially if you use something as bad as that one was.
Great option.
I also found the art for Larry in that last one not my favorite at all> I preferred the prevert Larry from 5 or 6 over the more cartoonish one in 7 however it appears I"m a minority.

Options is good. Thumbs up.

cool, i thought i'd get buried for that :)

yeah i preferred the larry 5/6 look than the cartoon larry also.

thing is, i havent played larry 7 beyond giving it a quick try, not sure i even got out of the burning room as i dont remember anything after that, but i do remember disliking the voice.

Another suggestion: Give fans/backers option to translate the game for every imaginable language. Just like for example 5 days a stranger has been translated by fanbase for many languages.

This could be done with beta testing. Just mail the text to the backers and they we would translate it to our native language. This would save costs and maybe give each translator change to BE in the game development :) I volunteer for Finnish translation!

Agreed, but only for Larry's voice.. Larry's Mickey mouse-like voice just didn't sound right for me

Just one issue with that from my point of view - fans translating things can in alot of cases go horribly wrong if / when they miss the jokes thats meant to be there.

I'll definitely discuss a text-only option with the team. It might not be difficult, as I think we've already agreed to a "closed-captioning" option.

The "anyone can translate!" option might be tougher, but I'll float it as well.
