Codsworth saying your name

Post by stormborn on Fri Jun 19, 2015 2:23 pm

Hey everyone! I was just thinking about how Fallout 4 handles player names now. The robot's supposed to recognize your name (if its one of the 1000 popular they recorded) - do you think its only Codsworth who will be refering to your name? It would be awesome if other characters could too!

Also, what names are you guys hoping for? I'm guessing John and James will be in there.

(if this thread has been discussed before, please remove this. I couldn't find anything on this topic though)

I'm thinking that it'll be Codsworth and the other companion characters. Hopefully at least. It makes sense for your companions to actually, y'know, know your name.

There is no way of telling if your name is in there or the name you hoped for but its 1000 of the most popular names, to guess is to speculate. Also every character unless the game has in game voice manipulation tools having every npc say your name would be next to impossible or a very very long download.

Well, there's no way to know if the name you want is in there as of now, sure. But once the game is out you'll probably be able to use a BSA extractor to look into the files and get the list of names that way. It is running on a modified Creation Engine after all, so more likely than not BSAs won't be different enough that our existing tools won't work.

Also they'll probably release a list of the names that work ahead of the game's launch. It makes sense.

My guess is it will only be a few main characters a few times (like wadsworth, your spouse, followers). I hope they release the names at launch but I expect that it probably won't make too much difference if they don't (wadworth would probably call you sir/madam and your spouse "honey" )

I think the recording of the names is a REALLY good idea. If your family is calling you by the name you pick, that's a great way to forge a connection with them early on relatively quickly - one that can be exploited for emotions when they get killed off.

Probably just Codsworth and a few more, I can't imagine them spending the money to have multitudes of voice actors having to do lines 1000 times over just for a name change. They could try that choppy, nasty way of doing it that pre 2010 wrestling and basketball games used to do it, and have them have said just the names and insert them into other dialogue audio lines.

That would be a mess though as it would be weird for them to calmly say your name while screaming "Run ____, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!", or just to incorporate the name into alternate dialogue without the choppiness.

It's still weird knowing that I will be talking as the player character...Let alone any others calling me by name out loud.

Well, there is a pretty good chance that if one npc can, most/many can. Probably any that don't shoot on sight at least. If not they will probably just do what was done before and call you by a title, with or without your chosen name being on the list (sir/honey or lone survivor[or something like the lone wanderer]).

Came here to say this, But you summed it up very well, I highly doubt it as well. I guess we can't tell until we have our hands on the game itself. Maybe something the talented voice actors of the modding community may be able to help with.

That's awesome. Codsworth can say my name now instead of sir! Now I'll probably be like Armstrong or something.

Guys this just came in my mind.What if there is a special easter egg where you name your character Heisenberg or Walter and Codsworth starts telling you that you have a hidden stash in your house full of stimpaks and other drugs,wouldnt that be awesome?

@MoDDeRAus Thanks. I agree the modding community will probably expand that potential exponentially, and maybe even find some cut content containing even more goodies that they had decided to leave out of the base game. It seems a lot of games have something left in their files that went unused, and I wouldn't be surprised if Bethesda left a few hanging around just for modders to get our hands on.

Their is also a program called IVONA Text-to-Speech that does a robo-human variety of voices, which could be used as a cool replacer for android dialogue. I actually use it as my Window Speech Macros voice, so I can control my computer by voice, and have it respond verbally to my commands. Pretty cool feature, but it's an expensive one...

I'm pretty sure there'll be other NPCs that call you by name such as your husband/wife/child, granted they're still alive.

Not worried about my name not being in the game, it's a pretty common name.

I think it would be cool if other companions and npc's could say your name because it would make you feel more like the game is real and you are in it! Smile
