Higher Female Children Voice (Japanese)

You would think the Japanese dub would have child voices well-covered, at least compared to what the English version got.  Ironically, because the coordinator of the Japanese dub did such a great job of matching the original voices, the end result is that the voices for female children in the Japanese dub share the same exact problems with the English dub: Some are too old, and some are voiced by 30-somethings with no real effort (or skill) to hide the fact.  Anyone who has watched their fair share of anime knows this shouldn't have happened, but it did.  And so, once again, I am here to offer my corrective services.

Other languages: English, German.
Female protagonist voice mods (Japanese) :Higher, deeper.
Male protagonist voice mods (Japanese): Deeperhigher.
Companion voice mods (Japanese): CuriePiper.
Other voice mods (Japanese): Female children.
Other audio mods: IMPACTFUL NUKES.





Here are some case-by-case notes:

Meg, Erin Reische, et al - A large degree of variability, forcing me to pick a balance and stick with it.

Nina Rodriguez - For some reason sounds literally like a 30-year-old woman with no effort to disguise this.  Kind of unbelievable.

Marlene's holotape(s) - Surprisingly, the dub here already sounds childlike.  No modification needed.

Julia Thompson - The English voice was one of those 30-somethings trying to sound like a child.  I am convinced that the Japanese dub is an effort to faithfully reproduce the ridiculously artificial result.  Congratulations are in order, because Julia Thompson still sounds like an older woman doing her best child impersonation.  In fact it sounds awful.  There is unfortunately very little that can be done to fix it.


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.


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.
