Numnotes replaces the default english pacenotes from RBR with numeric versions. It has two versions, ‘increasing’ and ‘decreasing’.
The increasing version replaces the pacenotes as:
flat – one
easy – two
fast – three
medium – four
K – five
The decreasing version replaces the pacenotes as:
flat – six
easy – five
fast – four
medium – three
K – two
The new pacenote sounds are a bit shorter than the default ones, so rapid notes should get called a bit faster. For a sample of what is sounds like, check out this video (5MB xvid avi).
Do a backup of your original audio.dat before installing!
The installer doesn’t work.
First, Make sure you have the latest version (1.02) installed. It is also possible that the installer doesn’t work at all in Windows 9x/ME based operating systems. If the installer doesn’t work, you can do a “manual” install by extracting the RBR audio.dat with DATtool or some other tool, and replacing the files in the ‘C:\Projects\Rally_7\TargetMedia_Develop\Pc\Debug\World\Audio\Speech\PaceNote’ directory with samples from the ‘increasing’ or ‘decreasing’ directories from Numnotes, and then repacking the audio.dat.
I don’t like it, how do I get the original pacenotes back?
Replace the audio.dat file with the backup you made before installing Numnotes.
How can I switch between ‘increasing’ and ‘decreasing’ versions?
Just run the installer batch file again for the version you want to use.
Where did you get the samples?
The notes are made by taking the numbers from ’200′, ’300′, etc. notes, and the ‘left’ and ‘right’ from the normal notes.
