Having played Elite Dangerous and other flight simulators I have found that using voice and microphone to control certain functions and commands in the games is very useful. Especially true in flight and space simulators where you often use a HOTAS setup and prefer not to start pushing buttons on the keyboard but rather keep your hands on the throttle and stick (which is what the HOTAS abbreviation basically means). But, for the sake of immersion and fun I started using this in Naval Action as well. While Naval Action has less buttons to worry about (in fact, it has very few which is surprising considering the complex tactics and such used in the game), I found it really fun to use these voice commands in Naval Action as well. Not all gamers are aware of this software since it's mostly common in flight sim community, but I wanted to share it here as well. It really does make you feel a bit more like a captain of the ship when you can simply use your voice and tell your ship to set 'rudder to port' and watch ship start turning. Or simply shout 'battle sails', or 'starboard battery load double shot' and crew starts working. Anyways, enough chit-chattery. The program (though I am sure there are others as well) is called Voice Attack; http://www.voiceattack.com/ It works exactly the same way as a macro button on your Razer mouse or your Logitech G19 keyboard. The only difference is you don't click a mouse button or press a key on the keyboard to activate the macro. You simply speak a command word (which you choose yourself). I've already made a profile for Voice Attack which covers most of the commands in Naval Action. I'm thinking about adding commands for moving the sails to full port or full starboard. That has to be done by timing how long the Q or E button is held down though so it's a bit tricky, but not impossible. Here's the Naval Action profile I use for voice attack: https://www.dropbox.com/s/elunveh4nja0xdv/Naval%20Action-Profile.vap?dl=0 (you can see the list of commands in the screenshot at bottom as well) Sorry if the commands I have chosen are not very historically accurate or naval... I simply don't know the proper command used when firing a broadside, or telling them to go port or starboard rudder so I just used simplistic terms. If anyone knows the proper historical commands used feel free to share. Would be even nicer to use the correct commands and terminology. Again, just wanted to share since I think others might enjoy barking orders into the microphone as well
Ahoy Captains! Have you ever felt that keyboards and all the button pressing break your immersion? Do you want a better* way of controling your vessel? Do you like giving out commands? Well look no further! *controling the ship using voice commands is not actually better at all If you are a proud owner of a program called VoiceAttack this is the post for you. If you do not own it, then this has no value for you, as you can not use it with the trial version. I have compiled a profile for Voice Attack that will allow you to control your ship using only your voice. It has roughly 150 commands in all, most with multiple order options. I do implore you to go through them and check your key bindings. The commands to fire port and starboard battery, the command to fire all guns and any commands that affect manual sail control will most likey not work until you rebind them to your control scheme. I am eager to hear your comments and suggestions on how to improve it. Again, read through the commands and check the key bindings. Obviously you can change it to better suit your style of command, but atleast this will give you a good platform. If you find any mistakes, errors, bugs, please let me know. Downloads: -Without TextToSpeech 9.72 Beta Version This is a WIP profile for 9.72. If you test it out be sure to let me know what is wrong. Because the game remembers sail speed values, what guns are loaded with what and what the crew is focused on it is recommended that before every battle you issue the command: Reset Values. This will ensure your profile and game are synced up. Best of luck and fair winds! *test of the profile - VIDEO, Video/TWsounds* If you're feeling really grateful and you want to thank me and the fellas recording voices with more than words: Donate *I also accept digital hugs.
