Quest for the One Voice Contest, Sponsored by EA LA


Last summer One Dead Angel attended the BFME2 Summit at EA LA where he got to be one of the first to preview BFME2. While there he participated in the Death Star Contest – not only participated, but won! What was the Death Star Contest? Well… have you ever wanted to let out a primal scream? ODA did, and won the contest for the best yell. As the winner his yell was recorded and is now a part of the Battle for Middle Earth II game.

Now EA LA is sponsoring a contest for you, to see if you can guess how his voice is used in the game!

So here is the challenge: Identify One Dead Angel’s voice clip from the game. To make it slightly easier, you can listen to the clip here for comparison. There are three ways to do it:

1. If you’re a modder and can find the sound files, you can listen to all of them and guess which one you think might be his.
2. While playing the game, you can record a sound clip using Fraps or another program. Be sure to send in just the one primal scream you think is his – i.e. don’t send in 5 minutes of recorded game saying ‘it’s in there somewhere’.
3. The low-tech way: describe very specifically the action that is occurring when the sound happens. I.e. ‘when Gandalf’s lightning strikes a tree, the tree screams in pain’

To enter, email Kester kester@heavengames.com with either the name of the sound file, a video or audio clip of the file, or the explicit description of the sound. Only one entry/guess is allowed per person.

All entries must be submitted to Kester by Sunday, April 30th.

1st place prize: Zboard and BFME2 Keyset
2nd place prize: EA game of choice

If more than one person correctly guesses, then the correct entries will be placed into a hat and names will be drawn at random.

If only one person has the correct answer, then the 2nd place prize will be drawn from all of the remaining entries.

If no one guesses correctly, then all of the entries will be placed into a hat and names will be drawn at random.

Our thanks to EA LA for sponsoring this contest!

Good luck to everyone!

No, don't post in the thread, email me if you have the answer

To make it slightly easier (just slightly), I've uploaded the clip to the site so you can listen to it to try to compare. Take a listen

Hey guys, I know a better way to look for sound files. It's extremely easy, and you can listen to all the sounds in minutes!

Simply open the Worldbuilder, a program that is found in your main BFME2 folder. When open, don't bother about any thing in the program, except for a large dialog box titled 'Object Properties' that is present. In that box you will find three tabs, labelled General, Logical and Sound. Click on Sound.

You will see a drop-down menu containing each and every sound of BFME2. To listen, just select the sound effect and click 'Listen'. This way, you can listen to all the sounds without having the "chance" upon them during gameplay, or learn the modding way.

Hey, that looks much easier, Pulkit. If anyone who has already emailed me with a guess wants to try this and guess again, you may.

Thats excellent Pulkit! 550MBs of sound files was really putting me off, however with this i'll make an entry. Thanks Pulkit!

I didn't find it where I thought I would, but I've never tried modding before, so maybe I'm doing it wrong... For now, I'll keep my answer the same.
