VCE files

From Creatures Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

VCE files are used in Creatures 1 and Creatures 2 to store voice lookup data for creatures. The files store both voices (a WAV filename and associated delay), and a lookup table used in the sentence-to-voice logic.

In the Creatures Evolution Engine, this data is instead contained in voices.catalogue.

Openc2e has a basic implementation.

File Format[edit]
