They have mouths! And oh, do they scream!

1. Resources

You will need:

2. Step 1

Download both files above
#1 being the voice lines from tf_port (needed as they are all .wav, the extension pf2 uses)
#2 being game_sounds_vo.txt which tells the game when to use which voice line.

3. Step 2

Once downloaded, navigate to Steam\steamapps\sourcemods\pf2.
  1. create a folder titled custom if there isn't already one.
  2. Inside custom, create another folder named workshop.
  3. Inside workshop, another folder named sound. Extract the vo folder from the first link to this new sound folder.

4. Step 3

  • Place game_sounds_vo.txt, obtained from the second link, to Steam\steamapps\sourcemods\pf2\scripts
  • Alternatively, you can put the game_sounds_vo in custom\workshop\scripts, If you want to avoid altering the games actual files.

DONE! All TF2 voicelines should now work. Get to the front lines of 2006, soldier!

    I wasn't able to get this to work by putting it in the custom folder. I had to overwrite Pre-Fortress 2's files to see a change. Also, it appears that you can't use this mod on servers, which makes it kinda pointless.
