    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    HCS Voicepacks Multi-Crew Profile for Elite: Dangerous

    by CMDR TheThingIs
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What is it?
    An all encompassing community profile that will replace all other profiles (probably not but it sounds good)

    Why should I use it?
    You don't need multiple voicepacks to use this, whether you own 1 of the HCS Voicepacks or all of them, this will do them all. You can run it with a multi-crew giving different voices to tactical, comms, flight and interaction mode. Or you can use just one voice for everything, it's up to you. Easier updating and community driven. Want a command, find a bug? Ask and I'll do my best to pop it in for you or fix the issue. I'm fairly quick at updating things.

    Why did I create it?
    As with most people, I like tinkering with VoiceAttack and creating my own commands. When the triple profiles were released I started to adapt it to work with the other voices, as I have all of them and there was nothing that catered for that. So, build your own I thought. It's now morphed into a whole different beast with numererous extra commands and tweaks. Still based on the original triple profiles though. I play alot of Elite: Dangerous so I'm pretty versed at altering and tweaking the profile to make it work with E: D very well.

    What main features does it have?
    5 different roles: flight control, tactical, comms, interaction mode and education
    Uses 1 or all of the HCS Voicepack voices
    Community driven and written by someone who plays the game a lot (19 weeks plus in game time)
    Updated constantly
    Crew rotation: uses a different voice for every command
    Hirez screenshot
    Ship's Log control
    Music player
    Audio control
    Dictation
    Education profiles
    Shield cell tracking
    Shield booster control
    HCS plugins
    many, many more additions and tweaks

    What do I need to use it?
    VoiceAttack and the Astra pack from HCS Voicepacks. The profile is completely free but if you feel like giving something as a thank you then make a donation to the charity SpecialEffect.org.uk for me. Buying another voicepack is also a good idea, or 2 or 3 or all of them Go on, you know you want to!

    Where do I get it?

    Latest version: v2.3b in the Astra pack and v2.3b as a patch for those using v2.3 or v2.3a which you can grab from here: http://forum.hcsvoicepacks.com/forum...r-minor-issues

    IMPORTANT: only use the versions of VoiceAttack that I specify in the readme.txt (in the multi-crew folder). Newer versions have not been tested and may not work correctly.

    RTFM: seriously, there is a readme.txt, you must read it, this is an advanced profile

    see you in the black commanders...

    cancel notification when the on my mark cmd times out
    plus the usual tweaks and bug fixes

    v2.3
    hcs journal plugin compatibility. can now use either the hcs plugin or the eddi journal plugin
    ability for me to provide patches and bugfixes in the same way hcs have done for the main profiles
    ability to assign a crew member to each ship
    the dolphin
    on my mark
    say a characters name and the next cmd will be voiced by that character
    Elite 2.3 changes
    plus the usual tweaks and bug fixes
    see the changelog inside the readme.txt for full details

        I've been using for the last few hours, the only issue is that the handover commands are using the default TTS default windows voice, so if HCS want to use this then the addition of having HCS voice packs issue the handover commands would be an improvement. I just keep using "Assign a new crew"

          Yes exactly. I was hoping HCS would take this on board and add their own spin on it as it also negates the need for all the different profiles they have to update all the time. There are a couple of draw backs though. As with the 2.0 profiles, some the the individual's character is removed due to not using their unique commands. Also you will notice that some of the voice file cannot be found. That is due to slight naming differences across the packs and some not having those files in. I didn't want to mess with anything and make this customised, I left everything as is so that HCS can tweak it themselves. This version uses a text variable as part of the voice filename which is how it is able to use different voices but that is quite generic. I also did another version of this where every voice command has 15 voice commands so you can actually customise each and every voicepack. That was before I discovered how to use the variable in the filename though which was a lot easier than putting 15 commands in for every 1 voice command lol.

            A couple of changes so please update:

            Bug fixed: the "do everything" repeated commander not available 3 times
            Improvement: "assign a new crew" will always be 3 different voices. Only works if you own 3 or more otherwise the no repeat function is off

                      Thanks for this great profile. I like it a lot. While I was changing some personal settings like keybindings and checking some stuff I think I've found 2 small things though regarding the Interaction mode.
                      In the ((Random Leo)) command it says Leo-mode and I think that should be Interaction-mode.
                      And the interaction mode for Kate is empty. I replaced it with a ((Random Kate)) command in a profile for Kate interaction mode I found on this forum and it's working now.

                        Glad you like it

                        I'll take a look at Leo. Kate V2.0 doesn't have an interaction mode so I was trying to add in as little extras as possible. My personal version of this has all of the chars interaction modes, eddi, music & radio and voices from other peoples packs but it's not something I wanted to give to HCS as it's way too complicated as a base profile.

                        Also, I'd forgotten to mention that I had updated Mars, Venus and Zee to work as well although they don't have wing or planetary landing sounds. They work, they just won't say anything when those commands are issued. Venus's pack still has it's files as .mp3 so you will need to rename all the sound files to .wav to work with this. Obviously when they are updated I will make the changes for them.

                          The ((Random Leo)) is a HCS voice pack issue, it's just an inconsistency but it still works fine.
