"...and if not, there may be more than one way to skin a cat, if you'll pardon me the expression."
"Most unfortunate metaphor, please avoid it in the future."

We're all wacky down here.

I remember that amongst the first games I ever played in my life was the original American McGee's Alice, and it pretty much left me without sleep across my infancy (ignore that link if you don't speak Spanish/have good taste). I never really got to play the sequel that came like an entire decade after, Alice: Madness Returns past the beginning hour, mostly cause when it came out, it didn't click much with me, but trust me, I wanna play it sometime ""soon"".

But anyways, what I bring you today as a late-late reverse-birthday gift is a double feature. From now on you get to play as Alice and the Cheshire Cat! Be warned, there's a stupid amount of references to Wonderland and the games, and an overall "Ruby, why did you use this here?" feeling, but by this point you should expect that sorta crap from me. And yeah, I did use audio from both games, and from the pre-rendered cutscenes from Madness Returns.



Alice Lidell was voiced by Susie Brann, expect more than 460 lines, cause of some of those lines got chopped into more lines, I used what I could rescue from AMA's in-game screams (some of those had sfx in them), I then added what I could salvage from MR's cutscenes, and THEN I also used Lizzie Lidell's (Alice's sister) lines from some pre-rendered cutscenes, cause I'm convinced it's Susie Brann doing a high-pitched voice.

The Cheshire Cat was voiced by Roger Jackson, and you should be expecting more than 430 lines, cause of the same reasons listed above. Lines got chopped into more lines, I used the Jabberwocky lines from AMA cause it's Roger Jackson in an ultra-tomb voice (used those lines for psi attacks and overall powerful stuff), and then I added some minor...easter eggs.



I guess this is a bit of an underwhelming release considering what I've been putting out here recently, but hey, I wanted to release them for a while now, and it's good to have some wacky sounding soldiers from time to time!
I anyone wants to get into the VP scene but they struggle with THE GUIDE, I'm more than willing to help!





Installation for Long War users:

1) To install...go to XCom-Enemy-Unknown\XEW\XComGame\CookedPCConsole, create a folder named "Voice" if you need it, and place the first folder that came inside the .rar file.

2) Then go to XCom-Enemy-Unknown\XEW\XComGame\Config, open DefaultContent, then press ctrl + f / ctrl + b (one of 'em should work), and search for eCharVoice_FemaleBlueshirt1. You'll end up with a highlighted line that will look a little bit like this: VoicePackageInfo=(VoiceType=eCharVoice_FemaleBlueshirt1,ArchetypeName="Voice_BSFVoice1.BSFVoice1").

3) Below it (or anywhere around the voicepacks section for that matter), you gotta place this voicepack's specific config line, here, let me show you how I currently have it:

; Alice Lidell (RUBY)
VoicePackageInfo=(VoiceType=eCharVoice_FemaleSoldier5,Language=35,ArchetypeName="FemaleVoice62_Canadian.Voice_FemaleVoice62_Canadian")

; Cheshire Cat (RUBY)
VoicePackageInfo=(VoiceType=eCharVoice_MaleSoldier8,Language=33,ArchetypeName="MaleVoice55_Canadian.Voice_MaleVoice55_Canadian")

Notes: see that "Language=X" part? Change it to whatever you see fit. From 0 to 6 it's the vanilla EW languages (English, Italian, French, Spanish, you know the drill).

If you, for example, want to have this vp in the British English section, you gotta change it into Language=7. Then you gotta change the "Voice_Male/FemaleSoldierX" into whatever you need. If you already have 3 male voices for British English, and you want to add another one, you'll have to have the new one as "Voice_MaleSoldier4,Language=7". Otherwise, if you have 2 that look the same there, one will "override" the other, and the game will detect one of them, instead of both. You gotta tidy up up them config lines if you download a buncha vps, ya' know!

You can have up to 9 voices in each "Language" for males, but only up to 6 with females, and 2 with MECs. If you go beyond that, the game will start overriding some of them, and you won't be able to use a couple of 'em. You just gotta try and label them as you see fit!

If the installation guide didn't made any sense to you, follow this guide:

Remember to paste this voicepack's specific config line!
Big thanks to ObelixDk for his lovely, lovely guide.


Installation for Vanilla EW users: check any of MJpoland's voicepacks for a guide, as I really, really don't know what to do with Vanilla EW!
