    Hi I'm trying to add voice files to a Talking Head I made,

    I converted the WAV audio (22050 Hz, 16 bits stereo) to ACM with the snd2acm program then I created the LIP files with wav2lip.
    What should I do next?

    The TH code is "miria" so I added a folder in the "...Fallout 2/data/sound/speech" called "miria" then added a txt, lip and acm file all called "mir154", 154 being the line of dialogue I want voiced, this didn't work unfortunately. I did this by reverse engineering the vanilla heads but I'm not too sure what I'm doing :lol:
    Any help is appreciated :)

    did you add the acm name to the dialog line?

    this is from cassidy.msg
    Code:
    {171}{Cas0171}{What's up? You got that "I need to tell you something you might not like" look again.}
    {172}{Cas0172}{Yeah?}
    {173}{Cas0173}{What's up? You got that "I'm pulling rank" look again.}
    {174}{}{I want to ask you some questions...}
    
    inserst ur file name same as 'Cas0171' above

    This worked thank you! Only issue I have now is that the lip syncing doesn't seem to be working properly. The speech FRMs I created should be accurate, 9 frames each with a different mouth movement (viseme) I used the original THs as a reference. I may be wrong though :sad:
