Hello

well, the title says it all.
I have created Pace Notes Sounds in GERMAN for the full Isle of Man track by Jim Pearson
to use with the program IOM Track Options Manager.

More details in the readme.

I use the Pace Notes Sounds in combination with Direction Arrows and Corner Names. :)

Download:

Have fun.

readme - Pace Notes Sounds in GERMAN
for the Grand Prix Legends (GPL) track
AAIOM (37¾ mile Isle of Man Mountain Course by Jim Pearson)
===========================================================

About
-----
These are alternative Pace Notes Sounds in GERMAN language for the full Isle of Man track for GPL by Jim Pearson.
To use them you need the program IOM Track Options Manager.

You can download the AAIOM track and the IOM Track Options Manager (by Lee Bowden) of Jim`s homepage:
http://jrpearson.homestead.com/

These audio Pace Notes are generated on the fly in real time as you reach positional triggers on the course
and include corner direction; numerical references 1 - 5 representing slowest to fastest corners, together with
other verbal clues to what lies immediately ahead.
These Pace Notes make it easier to learn the very long Isle of Man track.
With this system that is also used in Rally sports you can drive a track quite fast without knowing it.
Tip: Use the Pace Notes in combination with the Corner Speed & Direction Arrows option of the IOM Track Options Manager.


Installation
------------
Unpack the 7zip. Inside the "Pace Notes Sounds_GER" folder you find a "AAIOM" folder.
Copy the "AAIOM" folder into your GPL "tracks" folder and let your system overwrite all files when you get asked.
The path to the GPL "tracks" folder is ...\SIERRA\gpl\tracks\

Now you have replaced the 139 original ENGLISH pace notes with GERMAN pace notes. :)
In case you want to go back to the original ENGLISH pace notes there is a folder named "Pace Notes Sounds_ORIGINAL"
inside the "Options" folder that has all 139 original MP3 sound files in ENGLISH.
Just copy them all in the "Pace Notes Sounds" folder and let your system overwrite all files when you get asked and you are back to ENGLISH.

I have also replaced the five sounds of the "Track Position Sounds" folder with GERMAN sounds.
These sounds are played as examples within the IOM Track Options Manager (not in game)
when you choose the Pace Notes tab of the program and hoover with your mouse over the track section screenhots.
I have also included the original ENGLISH sounds in the "Track Position Sounds_ORIGINAL" folder in case you prefer the ENGLISH sounds.


How to create Pace Note Sounds in different languages
-----------------------------------------------------
To create the GERMAN Pace Note Sounds I used the great freeware Balabolka.
Balabolka is a free Text-To-Speech (TTS) program. All computer voices installed on your system are available to Balabolka.
So if you have for example Italian computer voices installed on your system, Balabolka will read and safe your texts in Italian.
The on-screen text can be saved as a WAV, MP3, MP4, OGG or WMA file.

The IOM Track Options Manager can only read MP3 files!

Download Balabolka:
http://www.balabolka...e/balabolka.htm

Important:
When you save a MP3 file with Balabolka the file name has to be identical to the original sound name
as the IOM Track Options Manager can only read the original file names.
The sound itself can be in any language, but the file name has to be the original ENGLISH one.
For example the sound name is "FullThrottleOverJumpKeepRight" but the GERMAN sound is "Vollgas ├╝ber Sprung rechts halten".



Thank you
---------
Jim Pearson

:D ;)

Anyone can easily create the pace notes in your native language, see readme section "How to create Pace Note Sounds in different languages".
It takes you about 1 1/2 - 2 hours to create the 139 mp3 files with the correct translation and like it is used in Rally sports.

While I was at it I would also have created them in Italien, French, Spanish, ....
but even when you use a good translator it may still not be correct as it is not my mother tongue. Especially the order of the words may be wrong.
And even if you have some knowledge of other languages it may still not enough to know if it is correct.

Then there are also specific words that you use in Rally sports.
For example I had words with the correct translation from English to my mother tongue German, but in Rally sports you would use a different word that fits better or is just shorter.

If anone should have the passion to greate pace notes in other languages please post them here (we will change the topic name then).


A big thank you again to Lee (and Jim) for implementing/creating your pace notes system to the Isle of Man track!
It helps me a lot to easily learn the track. The arrow and turn signs options are already a big help when activated in options manager, but the pace notes make it perfect as you get more information then just from the arrows and sings.
With the Pace Notes activated you get a Rally feeling kinda like in Rally sims like Rally Trophy, Richard Burns Rally, Dirt Rally, Dirt Rally 2, ...
I love it. :)

Give the Pace Notes system a try even if you think you don`t need such a help to learn the track. If you don`t like it you can easily turn it off again within the IOM options manager.


At the moment the Pace Notes System only works offlline, but Lee will have another look into it trying to get it to work online.

Pace notes are  improved in Build 1.1.

This will apply whatever the language used in the sound files.

I wanted to test Balabolka and finally I made the French version of the "Pace Notes Sounds".

Feel free to improve it if necessary.

To complete the previous post I specify that I checked all the sounds but I could not test them on the track.

For me, Lee's configurator doesn't work. I have an error message (see screenshot) and cannot validate any choice.

I was able to test the "Corner Arrows Turn" by putting the.mip files in the circuit folder and it seems to be a really interesting help. :)

However, it doesn't work for Pace Notes Sounds. By putting the mp3 files in the circuit folder or in the "sound" folder of GPL, same effect, no additional sounds when on track.

I will uninstall all, then reinstall the V1.1 lite and see if it works better.

First start IOM Track Options Manager, select Pace Notes 'On', then LEAVE RUNNING while you start GPL.

Thx for creating the French Pace Notes sounds.


"By putting the mp3 files in the circuit folder or in the "sound" folder of GPL"

They don't belong there!
They only work when they are in the track folder AAIOM -> Options -> Pace Notes Sounds folder.
Nowhere else.

Thank you, Stefan, for the clarification.

Thank you Greg, I thought I had to validate and close the configurator.

I will try with the version 1.1 lite and see if it works.

Already, the good news is that with the 1.1 lite version it seems that I no longer have a CTD.
