He still says…
All the things at the beginning of the round…like “Let’s Pick Up the Pace!”
“KO”
“Perfect”
“Time over!”
“Draw Game”
“Double KO”
“So and so…wins!”
“First hit!”
“Super Combo Finish!”
“Ultra Combo Finish!”

I changed Ryu Wins, Chun Li Wins, E. Honda Wins, and Zangief Wins to the HD Remix announcer versions, because he pronounces all their names right.
The only character with a mispronounced name is now Abel.

I agree with this…random that the arcade version allowed you to turn him off and the console version is just no dice. Only because I really like the game can I even begin to tolerate him babbilng.

I’m not sure how viable this is since I’ve never done modding work, but since SFIV does seem to be moddable to an extent, would it be possible to replace the announcer with a custom announcer voice that you made yourself?

Well I hope more people appreciate this.

It’s made my vs. and online life much more enjoyable.
And now I don’t have to have voices turned down all the way just to be able to bear a match, and hope I turned the voices down enough to tune out the announcer, and still hear Zangief say “Too Late!!!”

tnx for taking the time to find look through the files :slight_smile:

Change the announcer voice for Yipes or Dogface lol
That would be awesome

Who’s Yipes?

I want to turn off the pre-battle junk he says during the VS screen. Hope someone figures that out.

I’d rather it be a female voice in japanese.

Should be quite easy to modify BTL_NAR_E.csb to disable certain cues. But I dont know how to use hex editor.

This post includes that.
He no longer says pre battle junk either.

can you change the BGM for all the stages? want to add my own music as BGM to the stages…

Nice, thanks for this.

I can use cpk_unpack script to extract all the individual sound files. Only I don’t know of a way to repack the modified sound files into the cpk file. The files are in aax format

If you want to disable individual sound bytes, you can also edit BTL_NAR_E.csb in an editor and rename instances of “nrt_xxx_wav” to “BLANK_aif”. Except I don’t have aax player / converter so can’t tell which sound file is which.

Is it possible to use this trick on the menu music as well? I need to get rid of INDESTRUCTIBLE…

Overwrite BGM_MAIN_OM.csb with bgm_end file in game/sound folder, back up the file somewhere before you overwrite it though.

Thanks!!

Having to deal with annoying announcer is part of Street Fighter.

SF2? Guy sounded dead inside. Specially in HDR. "Perfect. Now I’ll go die."
3s? Black dude. “THAT’S COOL.” Yeah, Capcom… that’s what all the thugs are saying nowadays… that and rapping about SF.
Alpha 3? Dude was on meth. YOU CAN’T GIVE IT UP! TRIUMPH OR DIE! GO FOR BROKE! FACE AND STRIKE! BRAVE OR GRAVE! BEAT HIM UP GUY!
CVS2 announcer? THATS WHAT I LIKE TO CALL BIIIIG DAAAMAAAAGE. You thought “THE FIRST HIT THE SCALES HAVE TIPPED?” was bad… Try… “THEY STARTED OFF THE BEGINNING OF THE ROUND WITH A SNEAKY SURPRISE ATTACK.” FFFFFFFFFFF. “KEEP ROCKIN BABY” …“FINEST SPECIAL COMBO FINISH KO!”

SF4 announcer isn’t even that bad.
