PROCESSThis mod (painstakingly) ports all the original Bosco voice assets to the new remaster of "Sam & Max Save the World".
The lines in each game were labeled as numbers, with random numbers generated for both games (aka the same lines don't match number-to-number filename-wise), so first a full set of Bosco's lines had to be identified and sorted.
Each line was then converted from the proprietary ".vox" format (in the original game) to uncompressed .wav files, for editing.
Then, each of the original lines had to be edited to match the vocal timing of the new actor (as the new timing affected how long Bosco's lines play and how long Bosco's shot's in-game last), so that they'd play uninterrupted and at the right time.
Finally when this was done and working correctly in-game, the lines were given a basic cleanup and processed with "iZotope RX 8" to "EQ Match" a handful of surviving , but unused Bosco lines in the new remasters archives.
The results aren't perfect (you can only do so much with heavily compressed audio and timing constraints in-game), but it's the first step in restoring the changed assets in the remaster.
