Voice set for NWN

Hi, I would like to know if it’s possible to get the voice files of female barbarian from Diablo 3 (I own the game) and turn them into voice files for NWN ? Any advice or help for how to do that would be welcome, as I have no clue for now…

I’ve only made custom voice sets for NWN2 so I don’t know if it’s similar. Can you locate the sound files on your harddrive somehow? Are they .wav files or .mp3 or something else? If they are packed then that could be a problem.

I use a ssf editor for editing voices like this one: https://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn2/audio/sound/ssfeditor
There is one for NWN1 but I haven’t tried that: https://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/tool/quick-and-dirty-ssf-editor

And maybe you could check this out (even if it’s for NWN2):

You need to have the sound files as .wav I believe for both NWN1 and NWN2, and then you need to create a ssf file.

It’ been a long time for me as well, but Andgalf is correct… I think there’s a section for voiceset in the CCCguide and things haven’t changed at all regarding voicesets… The thing you’ll want to do is make a list of all the voice inputs you’ll need… (40-50 of them IIRC)… And then make sure the source you’re using covers/corresponds to the nwn commands. Try to get as many as possible… People appreciate a complete set. If something doesn’t quite match up, use your best judgement. Using a sound editor to cut and paste wav files together into something that’s useful is also recommended .
My 2 cents !

Hi and thanks for your help ! I will use all your tips and try to figure this.

If you don’t have a DAW program (Cubase, Abelton, Logic, Pro Tools, Studio One, Mixcraft etc.) or other sound program like SoundForge for instance, I can always try to help if you need sounds edited in some way. Sure, there’s always the free program Audacity but I don’t like that program myself as it can do very little. I remember eq-ing a soundset from Planescape Torment for my first module…pretty tricky but also fun.

The one thing I can’t help you with is locate the sound files unfortunately, since I don’t own Diablo 3.

So far seems the files are packed or something this way and I need to learn and use MPQ…

Edit : MPQ works, now I need to save the files as .wav ^^

A good program I use at work, which is free, is called ocenaudio: https://www.ocenaudio.com/
It can’t do a lot of advanced stuff but at least it’s user friendly and free.
