Topic: [request] sound fx for a cutscene

i wonder if we can get three new sound effects for a cutscene? Preferably high quality sounds (i.e., no 8-bit samples)

1) a little animal runs in fear, as it is being chased by evil creatures. The little animal screams: "heeelpp!!!". We need a sound for this "heeelp!!!" that matches this tiny animal
perhaps a high pitch voice would do? (see also: http://www.freesound.org/people/SoundMu … nds/62264/ )

2) the animal is caught. There should be a sound for this (preferably not an 8-bit one)

3) and they disappear with the animal. yet another sound is needed

this is the text of the cutscene:

// cutscene 3: Sunshine Paradise, between act 2 and 3
STRING_300          "Not so far away, <color=$COLOR_SURGE>Surge</color> sees a dam."
STRING_301          "What the... that dam wasn't here yesterday. How the heck did that get built so fast?!"
STRING_302          "Surge looks around, but Neon isn't there."
STRING_303          "Neeeeeeeooooooooon? Are you okay? Where are you? Neeeooon? Neeoon?!"
STRING_304          "Neon must've been captured... or maybe he ran off when he saw some of those creatures. Either way, he's in trouble and I have to find him."
STRING_305          "A young animal comes out of the woods."
STRING_306          "<color=$COLOR_DANGER>HELP!!!</color> They're coming! Run! Run for your life!"
STRING_307          "The animal gets grabbed by two of them..."
STRING_308          "and they disappear with it."
STRING_309          "<color=$COLOR_SURGE>Surge</color> is in shock."
STRING_310          "What!? It's just... gone."
STRING_311          "just like when Neon and I – wait a second... I remember these things! They appear out of nowhere and ambush whoever they are after."
STRING_312          "So, these strange creatures of darkness are the ones behind the disappearances of innocent animals..."
STRING_313          "and more of them are starting to appear."
STRING_314          "Looks like it's up to me to stop whoever's behind this..."

help??

Re: [request] sound fx for a cutscene

so i think the crococopter should have its own sounds so i took the liberty to do them:


Loop

Swoop down
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/20216605/Open% … p_down.wav

Swoop up
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/20216605/Open% … oop_up.wav


then the rest of the cutscene:

"HELP!"
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/20216605/Open% … s/help.wav

Grab NPC

nice!! way to go, thanks for the initiative! cool i wrote a script to play them

can you download the latest bleeding edge? When you start the game, the cutscenes will play in sequence.

in my opinion, the crococopter sounds are very good. smile The "grab NPC" is not, though, but to see why you have to watch the cutscene. The "help" is nice (I think I'll use it in the next cutscene, where a little monkey appears?), but, can you develop a similar sound that is more like:

"heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllp !!!!"

so that the creature who runs feels more scared?

we don't have a "disappearing" sound, so I use the regular death sample. It doesn't look very "serious" in the cutscene, though. Looks funny, that is.

Re: [request] sound fx for a cutscene

is it working now?

Re: [request] sound fx for a cutscene

The "HELP!" sound is too short. Unless it was panicking, but then it makes me think of it running around in random directions.

Suddenly, Surge is ambushed by a pitch black creature with sharp claws and purple, glowing markings. The beast lunges at
him, and nearly knocks Surge out, but Surge recovers and attacks the beast. The beast dissipates. Surge realizes that Neon could be in trouble as well.
Surge rushes to the waterfall.
'Sunshine Paradise Act 2'
At the river bank, Surge sees a dam.
Surge: "What the... that dam wasn't here yesterday. How the heck did that get built so fast?!"
Surge looks around, but Neon isn't there.
Surge: calls out in the surrounding forest desperately "Neon? Are you okay? Where are you? Neon? Neon?!"
Surge: "Neon must've been captured... or maybe he ran off when he saw some of those creatures. Either way, he's in trouble
and I have to find him."
An anteater comes out of the woods.
Anteater: yells "HELP! They're coming! Run! Run for your life!"
The anteater gets grabbed by two of them and they disappear with the anteater in shroud of black mist.
Surge is in shock.
Surge: "What!? It's just gone... just like when Neon and I – wait a second... I remember these things! They appear out of
nowhere and ambush whoever they are after. So, these strange creatures of darkness are the ones behind the disappearances of
innocent animals... and more of them are starting to appear. Looks like it's up to me to stop whoever's behind this..."

Those things chasing the animal in that picture don't look like what the description says.

Re: [request] sound fx for a cutscene

s32x, you picked up the story from the wiki, but that story has been slightly modified. For example, there's no anteater, nor young deer.

Re: [request] sound fx for a cutscene

So the Dark creatures are out of the question? because I had a W.I.P in the workshttp://upload.surgeswarehouse.com/upload/darkthing.png
