hi all,

I share the opinion with many of you that Space Alert is one of the most innovative & fun releases of 2008. I believe that Vlaada (Vladimír) Chvátil is a brilliant designer we may expect to hear from a lot in the coming years.

only "downer" for our group were the mission files. we found the robotic voice rather uninspiring. so quite a time ago I posted alternative german sound files here on the geek, with lots of star trek (original series) flavor. I got many kind responses for it, most of them asking for an english version. well, ask & you shall receive:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/39404

all original 8 missions are available "in new sound design", approx. 5,5 mb each, featuring:

- text performed by "Crystal ... US English" Text2Speech system by AT&T Labs, Inc (http://www.research.att.com/~ttsweb/tts/demo.php)
- music samples from "Star Trek Original Television Soundtrack" Vol.1 (episodes "the cage" & "where no man has gone before"), http://www.amazon.com/Star-Trek-Original-Television-Soundtra...
- music samples from "Star Trek Original Television Soundtrack" Vol.3 (episodes "shore leave" & "the naked time"), http://www.amazon.com/Star-Trek-Original-Television-Soundtra...
- sound samples from "Star Trek: Original TV Series Sound Effects", http://www.amazon.com/Star-Trek-Original-Sound-Effects/dp/B0...

in lack of a proper audio tool, all sound snippets were mixed with "magix video maker deluxe", the german version of "magix movie edit pro" (http://www.magix.com/de/video-deluxe/), where I exported the sound stream as mp3.

I especially wanna thank fellow geek ShaneHamlin and his gaming group for playtesting!

Have fun with it cool

edit: spelling

Nice job. Waaaayy better than the originals.

Provides some inspiration to do an entire Star Trek re-theme as well.

These are great! Though I still prefer the original ones, for me the ultimate version would have a GLaDOS voice announcing the threats

thnx all.

I get PNs asking for the legal state of these contributions. I asked a friend of mine who happens to be a copyright lawyer. he said there have 3 conditions to be met to post these files legally:

1. the mixing of the sound samples must be not reversible, i.e. if you have a sound editing program, you may not be able to "recreate" the original music or sound effects. check.

2. the posting must be non-commercially. check.

3. the inventors of the original soundfiles must agree with the posting of other versions. wrote them an email - check.

hope this helps to soothe you cool

GLaDOS. GLaDOS all the way. It was the first thing all of us said when playing it.

Thanks for these files! We'll give them a shot in our next game Great job.

These sound so awesome, just listened again. Are you going to do the disk 1 soundtrack as well?

I don't think I could stand to listen to the originals, they're just so brutal compared to these.

General Bonkers says the War on String may be unwinnable. Detractors worry that his statements will embolden string.

Thanks for taking the time to create these. They're much better than the ones that came with the game.

Good stuff, but some of the sounds are harder to understand. I'd put more of a pause in between some of the effects. Like when it says "Time T + 2" it slurs together and is hard to make out the "2" which is the important part.

Still, great job and will make the game much more thematic!
