new Aura voice is killing EvE again

please don't improve it

just bring old one back


maybe that doesn't cost money so it will not be approved by management


maybe you could paint the space in white for a change

There are no dev responses in this thread. :(

Anyway, Caroline Dalton's Aura voice would be appreciated. How much do you guys need to rehire her if that is an option?

Like, concerning the voice...

the old voice had a filter on it.
a filter that made it seem like an AI. so if they can do that, and they ABSOLUTELY need to keep the newly scripted lines for the NPE, then just add that filter to the NEW LINES and bring back the OLD ONES.

everyones happy.

Once upon a time I actually spoke with RealX (Jon Hallur) and he gave me the filters for her voice. I'm sure they still have them, and if they don't, I do and am happy to provide them :)

I miss Aura...
It's weird, couldn't have foreseen this, but the voice actor's expression
of the AI felt like she had a bit of a backstory: subdued, much more than
capable, and quietly resigned to applying her vast intellect to endless
repetition. Sort of wistful.
Gosh, pathetic. But I still miss her. Please bring her back.
Maybe a checkbox in the game options dialog box?

p.s. The name of the new one isn't Aura; it's Jacky.
p.p.s. Did Aura leave a forwarding address?

Like other have stated on most of this stuff.

1. The voice is pretty bad for warp, dock, asteroid depleted etc.
2. The character sheet is just a jumbled mess and I'd like the other back.
3. The command burst lasting longer then the cycle time when you have implant + skills. Would be nice if skills and implant would extend the cycle time as well so they would be in sync. Having to turn the modules on and off is just inconvenient. I just leave them on at this point and the extra script use be damned.
4. I'm still having trouble coming to grips with being robbed half my leadership abilities. Seriously, come on, they aren't the same skill now. Removing the passive changed their function and we should be refunded.
5. The ghost fitting needs a lot of work.
6. I would honestly rather see everything reverted back to the way it was almost.

I do find the clone states neat in that I have seen people I haven't seen in a while but not sure how functional they will be to anyone but newer players.

I realy HATE the voice change you did to Aura. High pitched and speed increased. Sounds like a little pony or like Donald Duck talking in a hollow tube. Please redo the samples to a voice that sounds more of this time.... Twisted

New character screen.. getting used to.
Booster updates... nice.
npc miners.... cool.
new structures... great.

The new voice is a total failure, you have to make the original voice greater again !!

There's a lot of things they could have fixed instead of giving us that disaster of a UI.


Was thinking about writing a ticket for the two out of tree characters with a broken character sheet, but I just cancelled the subscription instead.

Would be nice if skill queue window looks like old - separate and with skill points numbers in every skill group.

For the love of all that is holy bring back the old voice.

Yes, please. Or give us the option to toggle the old voice, for those who prefer it.

Actually I would already be happy if I could get the old "Warp Drive active" sound back ;)


this
(a/b-testing is very common elsewhere, so make it an option to switch to old aura where recordings are available, that would do)

that one announcement you hear so many times, i loved the old one,
the new one makes me want to stop playing the game.

Not Happy with the new Aura voice. It has been a topic in Local, and Corp chat since the update.
I agree with others that the old voice was soothing.
My Corp and I hope CCP will look into and consider a toggle, or revert, or at least an edit of/from the new voice.

I thought the old voice was better than no voice, but I felt it sounded tired and "backgroundish" to the point that I often didn't hear it. This new voice sounds fresh and feminine and much more pleasant. To me, anyway.

Well CCP, you have one fan out of 27 pages of - It needs fixing, negative.

There's your justification to do nothing and just ignore majority feedback.

New Aura - Muted on all accounts, will NEVER invite friends to play Eve if that squeal your passing off as Aura's voice is what they will be exposed to.

CCP Falcon; I always thought you were one of the few that had players in mind during development - Seems your just not worthy of that, at least not anymore.

Fozzie posting, I cringe every time but do read it.
Falcon posting, not going to read it, he is just as likely to be rude and insulting - Again.. Respect level, just hit ZERO

My opinions are mine.

  If you don't like them or disagree with me that's OK.- - - - - - Just don't bother Hating - I don't care

It really is getting harder and harder to justify $23 a month for each sub.

URGENTLY, change Aura's voice! If you cannot find a professional voice actor, give us the previous one.

Please, URGENTLY, since we have to hear this atrocity all the time.

Please, do not try to fix the stuff that already works.

I tried out the NPE. Whilst it is a massive improvement over all previous efforts it still need a fair bit of work to make it an enjoyable, immersive and a less than frustrating experience.

A significant problem is that the scripting seems to be highly regimented in terms of what inputs/responses it accepts as valid ways of achieving something. EVE offers many ways in which operations can be carried out. Thus the tutorial should make it very clear to the player what response/action it is expecting; and/or the script needs to be more “clever” at interpreting what the player has done.

I don’t know what I “did wrong”, but soon into the tutorial I was given the task to loot a highlighted container, but the container was not possible to be found. The “?” that takes you back a step only took me back to where I was meant to warp to the location, and again no container was to be seen. I then turned off the tutorial in frustration, hoping to restart it, but there is no obvious way to do that.

It is essential that if a tutorial is provided then players should be able to replay it at will. Not being able to go back and try things again or being frustrated by the scripts poor AI will inevitably put off some new players.

As far as I'm concerned, CPP may roll back the whole expansion, since a few unsubstantial improvements are not worth all horrible stuff it brought, rendering the game unplayable (unless someone has masochistic tendencies of course).
All my 3 subscriptions cancelled.
