To answer the questions:

No, you're not allowed to alter pre-existing TCB graphics to suit your needs - they're under Caravel's copyright. You have to have them drawn from scratch.

If you include sounds and custom graphics in a hold, and you export the hold - yes they are included.

As for the voices... feel free to contact any/all of the people on the list who're up for giving voice work. The reason it's best to make sure the hold is ready before you ask for the voices... is because there've been situations in the past where people have asked for voice acting... and then never actually released the hold that the voices were going to be used in.

When the hold's pretty much done, there's a big list of people on the front page you can contact for voice work. I don't need to see the script, just make sure there's nothing offensive in there. If you need eightised swear-words, I'm sure you can ask :)

To respond to Mr Slice - best thing to do to see if the file has actually recorded is to use Audacity. That way, you can see the waveforms of the file. It might have recorded very very quietly, so another possibility is to select the entire file and amplify it, see what comes out that way.

Well, I'm a little unclear about the established process for requesting artwork here (do I message Calamarain or all potential artists directly?) so I'm just going to post my request here and see where that gets me.

I need some custom graphics for my hold Porthole. This requests breaks the rules because this is not a complete hold, but I have reasons for needing the graphics as soon as I can get them.

Apart from a couple of bugfixes, I have the main engine of this game completed. Since I will be copy/pasting my engine room in order to create all rooms of this hold, it makes sense to include the correct character graphics in with the engine room before I do all of that, in order to avoid extensive graphics updating.

So for anybody willing to give it a go, here are the graphics I most urgently need.

Energy Pellet: I need a NWSE character graphic that represents an energy pellet (the yellow glowing orb in the screenshot). North facing should indicate northward travel, south should indicate southward, etc., etc.

Energy Pellet Launcher: This a NWSE character that launches the energy pellets. I can't find a good picture online, but people familiar with Portal (or the flash version) should be able to figure out what this looks like.

Energy Pellet Receptor: This is an 8-direction character, although it's really a 4-direction character in two different states. It will represent both an open and closed receptor. The open receptor frames will occupy the NWSE slots. The open receptor is the glowy thing on the right side of the floor in this picture. The closed receptor will occupy NW/SW/NE/SE slots, and can be seen on the left side of the shot here.

Thanks-a-plenty!

Yep, posting here is fine. It might encourage new artists to come out of the woodwork as well. The reason there's a list of artists is so that you can message them directly, people who you know are into it.

But the list is by no means complete, so there's no harm in doing both - posting here, and asking them by PM. One thing though - you have got custom characters set up in your hold? e.g. you have a character type called "Pellet" or something, which always appears the same. You should only need to import it once, and set it to always be the graphic for that character. Then, any usage of a "Pellet" type monster will always show that graphic.

That's a great idea. I'll get started by doing that. Thanks!

Sure, I'll add you in. Though technically speaking it's not possible to have no accent :) Everyone has *some* accent, just depends where it's from.

Now that I have a good mic, I'd like to add myself to the voice acting group. I have a good range for speaking, I can speak clearly either high or low. I also have a basic American accent although if you give me some time I can pull off a Boston or New York accent as well. I also can sing if you give me the tune.

Unusual accent? I did other voices in the audition-lines. I would say that I don't have an accent (except when I want to :P ).

EDIT: And oh! My normal voice is pretty deep.

Guys,

May I point you all towards this forum post

http://forum.caravelgames.com/viewtopic.php?TopicID=28581

Have a look, see if you want to do it :) It involves singing a few lines, which will be edited together into a "Choir" of voices.

Depending on availability at the time, I'm willing to give my services for either voice acting or custom art.

As resume:
Voice: I did the voice for Greybeart in GatEB as well as a few of the guard voices. ("Pull the other one" and so on.)
Art: Here's a link to my personal site where I continue to post new drawings and images I make.
