    the file is optional unless something it needs is in it
    a campaign file or a md5 file (maybe an mdx file) are ways to make it download... but otherwise it's optional

    Level 1 and its alt are the actual menu files for the voicechat menu. They are what is displayed in that menu.

    Just posting a follow-up note on my tutorial:

    You can only have ~100 characters in the quotes.. i.e.:

    sound/kcc/porn.wav "I dunno.. doing something.. pornographic?"

    If whatever is in quotes is too long, in game, it will cut it off.

    Secondly, sprites:

    If you look closely in the .voice files for Axis and Allies, you'll notice something like this:

    sound/chat/allies/922a.wav "Heal me!" sprites/voiceMedic

    voiceMedic is that little red icon that appears above someone's head when they call for a medic. It's known as a sprite.

    Making your own sprites is pretty easy. Make a blank 64x64 image in Photoshop or what-have-you, and then add the wanted picture there. Cut out whatever parts of the picture you don't want in the game, and then CTRL + Left Click the little thumbnail of the layer you're working on. Go to "Channels" and then add a new one (It will be automatically renamed "Alpha" something). Press alt+backspace and that black should be filled with white. This white is the visable. Black is invisible. Anywhere between is semi-transparent. (Note, if it doesn't fill with white, press "D" and then press ALT + Backspace). Save this is a .tga in the "Sprites" folder (make sure it saves with transparency, it will ask you in dialog box) as a 24-bit Targa file.

    Next, you need a shader file. In my case, I had made a chinchilla icon for my friend Lemmy. It had transpency, and it was placed in the right folder. So I made a new .shader file name qdSprites.shader

    In this shader, I added:
    map sprites/chinchilla.tga
    rgbGen vertex

    nocompress - The image won't be compressed
    nopicmip - The image stays sharp.
    The rest of the commands are for transparency.

    I saved that file in the "scripts" folder with the two .voice files. Next, I opened up the .voice file and added to one of Lemmy's sounds:

    sound/lemmy/problems.wav "What the hell is people's problems?" sprites/chinchilla

    Pretty simple? Good.

    P.S. I apologize for those who do not use photoshop, it's the only thing I've got. But as long as you can get a Targa file that is 32x32 pixels and can accept alpha layers/transparency, you should do fine.

    My apology, but I can't make heads or tails of what you're getting at....
    Please explain more and better.
