    CrewChief Driver Names Audacity Splicing Thread: Sharing Driver_Names for AC


    I've been building real-life fields in Assetto Corsa, and have really enjoyed the CC functionality. That is, the app saying the actual names of the car ahead/behind, who's in the lead, etc. It's a great immersive feature.

    There are thousands of driver names in the driver_names folder in AppData, but obviously that can't cover a healthy portion of motorsport, including more recent names. So, recently, someone on the official CC Discord turned me onto the idea of "creating" driver names by splicing other names together in Audacity, and then throwing them in the driver_names folder for CC to use.

    This is my attempt to get a thread together to share some of these files. I figured I might as well share what I've spliced together, as well as see if others have had success.

    I want to plainly emphasize: this is not a thread attempting to press Jim Britton into doing any more voice work (if he's even still active on these forums, not sure). There are thousands of lines in the voice pack, and he's done plenty enough, and the app is still getting updates all these years later. The app is fantastic, and if you haven't already, I implore you to donate. It's an irreplaceable resource for the hobby.

    This is more of a thread to see who's spliced what together with some success, as I have. I'm sure there are people way better at this than I am, that can get way better audio samples on some of the more difficult names.

    I'm going to list the files of spliced names I've made that I consider "close enough to native", the ones that are mediocre, and the ones that are really bad. Suggestions are more than appreciated, and if you have any to add, please add them in a reply below.

    Update 1 (06/09/2023)

    No names in this category.

    These are so bad that I'd need to redo them or leave it to someone better. Particuarly Sarrazin, Kovalainen and Ishiura.

    This is what I've gotten to so far - I'll come back every now and then with updates when I have some more. And, of course, share yours if you have any.

    GDrive Link:

    Simply drag and drop these .wav files into your CrewChief driver_names folder in AppData. The app should read them properly, given the skin has the proper last name written into the ui_skin.json file in AC. CC will then use them as if they were native to the app.



    Update 1 released, 06/09/23. Notes above.

    Oh, wow, this actually went through! It was in "administrator review" for about a week, so I just gave up on it. I have a few updates, and will see if I can get that GDrive into shape.

    Thanks for doing these, I've put the first two sets in a pair of merge requests to be reviewed and added to a future sound download pack

    Cheers! Happy to help. Definitely don't add the "terrible" ones. They are quite bad.

    I've done quite a few more and will add them when I have time. I'll add a changelog too.

    Update 1 uploaded, should be in the GDrive.

    No stinkers this go around, but there's a few that need some work, namely Verhagen and Bornhauser.

    Download above. Thanks.
