Send me the script and ED or whoever may use my voice in a/the training video(s). It's hard for some of us to read the writing in the videos and we count of the spoken word to get us through these. English speakers make up a big section of the customers here. Everything should be available in English. And please, please no more English with the thick French accent like the Mirage training videos. Why in the world would they even think this would help us get through the training easier than a native speaker of English?

I appreciate the intent of immersion using Russian, but in training environment, that charm lasted about 5 seconds before it became a obstruction to learning. Would rather no voice than one that is just a distraction while I'm trying to learn a new plane. Would have been appreciated & a really good feature having a Native & English voice option; please consider this for a future patch.

I also was shocked to by this and find its only in Russian had that been stated I would not have purchased it I have used it all of 5 min do to only having subtitles. It looked like an excellent way to train till I opened it and found out the instructor only spoke Russian, It would be nice if there was a way to take the speech file out have it translated by some kind app the put back in

Well it isn't exactly that easy, but not that much harder with the new multi-language support provided with dcs since dcs 1.5 and now in most missions, it is a lot easier, just to re-record the texts using your own or someone elses english voices and attach the new voice overs to another language that will automatically play the correct ones based on what version of language is appropriate for locale being it Russian, English, French or others.

Simple way of Doing it:
  • Must have the willingness to take it on, and spend sometime doing it.
  • Use a tool called MZedit (By Uboat) from the ED user file section of Website to extract all messaging in a mission to a text file to get all the subtitle texts in an easy to read format for the reading script.
  • Set up some simple recording software, Audacity is popular for this, you can then record your voice for each message to a separate .wav or .ogg files, using the same names as the originals that come with the mission.
  • This is the tricky part, ie: when the sound files are created, using a zip viewer, open the actual mission file and copy from the Mods\aircraft\L-39C\Missions\Training\L39-Training-1-Start-Taxi-TO.miz\l10n\DEFAULT directory all .wav or .ogg and "mapResource" files to the Mods\aircraft\L-39C\Missions\Training\L39-Training-1-Start-Taxi-TO.miz\l10n\RU directory.
  • Now copy your new sound .wav or .ogg files to the Mods\aircraft\L-39C\Missions\Training\L39-Training-1-Start-Taxi-TO.miz\l10n\DEFAULT directory.
  • Close the mission file and run DCS to enjoy you new voice overs in english voices for english users and Russian can still have the old russian voice overs.
Regards, Ian.

Problem with editing original files is, the update and repair will always replace it with the original version -> additional download and manually replacing the mission files again.

A much better and consumer friendly solution would be to have ED provide the English voice overs .

And they could clean up the untranslated Russian texts, too and use feet and knots, when the english cockpit is selected to match the instruments.
