About this mod

Several higher-pitched (and younger-sounding) tweaks to the Japanese female protagonist's voice.

Higher Female Protagonist Voice (日本語化)

Note: Automatron patch is now available.  Please read the special installation note below.
Note: Far Harbor patch is now available.  Please read the special installation note below.


This is the Japanese version of the Higher Female Protagonist Voice mod.  The default Japanese voice is much better than the English voice, as I expected, so this mod isn't meant to fulfill a corrective purpose so much as to provide variety.

Note: The naming convention and tweak variety for the Japanese version of the mod differs from that used in past versions.  Most voice types which included audible distortion are not provided, as I did not feel that they are necessary in this case.

Other languages: English, French, GermanSpanish.
Deeper Female Protagonist Voice (Japanese) is here.
Male protagonist voice mods (Japanese): Deeper, Higher.
Companion voice mods (Japanese): CuriePiper.
Other voice mods (Japanese): Female children.
Other audio mods: IMPACTFUL NUKES.





Voice Types:

Note: On the whole, the pitch of the voice isn't much changed in any of these voice types, but what does change appreciably is the apparent age of the voice.  Each step higher primarily means a somewhat younger-sounding voice.

Voice Type A1: 3% higher.

Voice Type A2: 6% higher.

Voice Type A3: 9% higher.

Voice Type A4: 12.2% higher.

Voice Type A5: 15.6% higher.  It stops sounding reasonably natural beyond this.

Voice Type U2: Pitch 50% higher, formants 9% higher, high distortion.  I hadn't planned to include any legacy voice types with built-in distortion but I've seen a number of requests for this.  Use at your own discretion!

Voice Type U3: Pitch 73% higher, formants 12.2% higher, high distortion.  As a special treat for anyone who can actually tolerate the distortion, this will be intended as a closer match to the kind of voice typical of modern anime.  Use at your own discretion!


Installation (as of 2016-3-21):

1. Follow the Fallout 4 Mod Installation guide to learn the latest method for setting up custom mods.

2. Patch 1.3 eliminated transparent support for .bsa archives, and there still is no way of creating .ba2 archives, so here are the options for installing as I understand them (copied from the mod thread).  I have not found the time to test them.

(The following examples assume you want to install "Higher Female Protagonist Voice - Type D1.bsa".  Replace this text with the .bsa filename of your intended mod.)

Option 1:

* Go to your Fallout4.ini under My Documents/My Games/Fallout4
* Under Archive section, find 'sResourceArchiveList=' without the quotes.
* Copy and paste this line and replace the existing line after 'sResourceArchiveList=':

sResourceArchiveList=Fallout4 - Voices.ba2, Fallout4 - Meshes.ba2, Fallout4 - MeshesExtra.ba2, Fallout4 - Misc.ba2, Fallout4 - Sounds.ba2, Fallout4 - Materials.ba2, Higher Female Protagonist Voice - Type D1.bsa

* Start your game and the voice should have change to your desired voice type.

Option 2: 

* If you're afraid of messing up the Fallout4.ini file, you can just place the commands below into Fallout4Custom.ini.  It will leave the original one intact and use the one in Fallout4Custom.ini while avoiding faulty ini file.

[Archive]
sResourceArchiveList=Fallout4 - Voices.ba2, Fallout4 - Meshes.ba2, Fallout4 - MeshesExtra.ba2, Fallout4 - Misc.ba2, Fallout4 - Sounds.ba2, Fallout4 - Materials.ba2, Higher Female Protagonist Voice - Type D1.bsa

* Add the name of the esp file of your chosen voice type (for example: "Higher Female Protagonist Voice - Type D1.esp") to the plugins.txt file, which is typically located in C:\Users\(your username)\AppData\Local\Fallout4.

* Extract the contents of the archive to your Fallout4\Data\ directory.

Option 3:

* Use the Bethesda Archive Extractor utility to directly extract the contents of this mod's .bsa archive to your Data directory.


Special installation note about Automatron:

As far as I can tell (and I could be mistaken) the .ba2 archive content packaged with this DLC has been given total priority, which means none of the above options will work until one has forcibly discarded what they are trying to replace.  In other words, you will probably need to do the following before the above options will work:

1: Using Bethesda Archive Extractor, Extract the contents of your DLCRobot - Voices_ja.ba2 archive to your data dir.
2: Delete the PlayerVoiceFemale01 dir, located in Sound/Voice/DLCRobot.esm/
3: Hide your DLCRobot - Voices_ja.ba2 file, either by moving it to a temporary location or by temporarily renaming it.
4: Now try one of the previous three options.

Revert these changes once this latest issue has been sorted out by the modding community.  Until then, be aware that if Steam re-downloads the DLCRobot - Voices_ja.ba2 file, the voice may revert to vanilla.  My apologies in advance if this information is no good / outdated; too busy with hospital visits and such lately.



Special installation note about Far Harbor:

For the time being, this patch is being made available as loose files.  Mod Organizer 2 is recommended.  After installing, the same issue that exists with the Automatron DLC also evidently exists for Far Harbor, meaning similar steps may be necessary to force the mod to take priority:

1: Using Bethesda Archive Extractor, Extract the contents of your DLCCoast - Voices_ja.ba2 archive to your data dir.
2: Delete the PlayerVoiceFemale01 dir, located in Sound/Voice/DLCCoast.esm/
3: Hide your DLCCoast - Voices_ja.ba2 file, either by moving it to a temporary location or by temporarily renaming it.
4: Now try one of the previous three options.



Other:

Although I can follow the Japanese language reasonably well, I am not so good at composing text, so I did not bother.  I don't expect this to be much of a barrier.

I hope this mod is of use to others.
