I hope you'll succeed on the VA's mod. This is one of my fav game but I can't really stand the new VA for Zack, the OG one is just too good (probably nostalgia but still).
Good luck with your work! I'd help but don't have any kind of skill in this kind of field.

I couldn’t agree more love Zack’s story but I 100% can’t get behind the new voice direction no matter how much I try. Give me some time and I’ll hopefully have that issue resolved for us soon! :)

Just a small little update been working on this in my free time while juggling updates for my other 2 projects I’m also working on. I’m hoping to have a solid first mod release out within a week or two that will overhaul the entire game with Zack’s old OG voice for Rick Gomez along with the other full cast of OG voice actors from the original PSP version. Most cutscenes are already replaced and I’m working on seeing if I can wing up also some proper replacements for some other lines in the new game that wasn’t present in the PSP version. Time will tell, just wanted to update everyone. Merry Christmas everybody!

Mod version 1.0.0 has officially been released for the Switch! (download link posted at the top of the thread) This 1.0 release fully replaces all in game audio for all characters Zack, Sephiroth, Cloud, Reno, Rude, Aerith, Cissnei, etc etc the whole 9 yards with their ORIGINAL PSP VOICE ACTORS for all main scenes of the game. The new added voiced scenes for the misc scenes of the Reunion remake have not been done yet along with the in battle sound effects but that's coming with due time once the file structure of the files can be sorted and figured out more in depth. I also have a pretty solid idea that I'm hoping will work for actually recreating Zack's original Rick Gomez voice using Audio AI learning technology so that we can recreate the new voiced Reunion lines. Not sure if anyone is familiar or knows more and could help with that idea but I'll include to the link to the software below that caught my eye just incase. Enjoy the mod everyone!

Amazing work. I've been trying to play the game as is and honestly most of the VA does not bother me but Zack is tough. Those original lines are burned into my brain and it's been difficult to play the new VA especially when some lines really aren't done as good as the original.

With regards to AI there are various teams/modders working on Mass Effect Legendary Edition that have been spending a lot of time on voice AI to add new lines to the existing characters for romance mods and even adding characters as squad mates for games they weren't in. Might be worth checking out that discord for any advice. https://discord.gg/masseffectmods

AMAZING information to know!! Thank you seriously so much for bringing this to my attention I’ll definitely join the discord and see if anyone would be generous enough to give me some pointers in the right direction for tackling this task. If I can pull it off it will be amazing and finally give us all that true fully voiced pretty remake we’ve all been waiting on.

After posting decided to go down the MELE modding hole and see if any of the mods I was waiting for are up and sadly not but I think I did find the tool in question they are using and wow it's expanded to a ton of games. No CCR obviously but there is a companion trainer app to use other voices. I'm not 100% sure if this is the app the big MELE teams are using but it's what I found:

Is there any mod to make this game run at 900p/1080p docked?
I tried to increase the resolution, but it seems the main is locking the ini files in pak.
The game looks super blurry and low resolution, they set the base resolution to 1080p with a 66.66% screen resolution, so the whole game renders at 720p even UI (that's so lame), the min dynamic resolution is set to 50% so the game can fall as low as 359p.

Now, what's the point of having a 1080p backbuffer if the UI renders at 720p still?, I guess it's just the port being pretty lazy or the engine doesn't support backbuffer and they didn't bother to optimize the Swith version.

Hey, is the voice mod still being worked on?

LONG TIME NO SEE.PNG



Yes! Mod version 2.0.0 has just been released! I've been juggling other projects the last couple of months while also working on this in my free time. Had to go back and fully revamp the mod since version 1.0 still had a lot of audio issues with the new voices popping back in and out through the game. I've also still been working with Resemble AI to try and mimic the original voices at the best quality possible to use those potentially in the future to replace the new voice lines. Outside of that, this new mod version takes the approach of muting all the new voice lines for all characters in game. While, (Fingers crossed!) fully fixing and restoring all the OG voices to all characters for the entire game this time without issues. Enjoy everyone!
