Taunts

This page is a quick overview over all available taunts in Hedgewars. This list is important if you want to create voicepacks to ensure that you didn’t forget a taunt. For a list of all sound effects which are not taunts, see Sounds. There is also a brief description when these taunts are played in Normal mode. Lastly, there is a transscription of the taunt for the Default voicepack for better orientation.

All files have to be in the Ogg Vorbis format. Make sure the file names you use match the case as used on this page to ensure your voicepacks also work on case-sensitive systems.

When playing taunts, there is often a bit of randomness involved, especially if there are multiple taunts for the same events. Additionally, scripts can play these sounds at any occacion. If you are a script author, it is recommended that you try to stick as close to the intended meaning as possible but this is not a requirement, of course.

When creating a voicepack, you should try to cover all the files listed here for the greatest variety. To avoid awkward silence, try to have at least the core taunts.

Some taunts have fallbacks. This means, if a particular voice file is missing, Hedgewars will try to use the fallback option (or one of the fallback options) instead. If the sound file is missing and there is no fallback, the hedgehog stays silent.

Lists of taunts

Thes lists are sorted alphabetically by file name.

The “General idea” column gives the rough idea/style this taunt is supposed to have. The “Used when …” column says when the taunt is actually used in the current Hedgewars version.

The actual usage might be subject to minor changes from time to time, but the general idea will stay the same, so it's generally a good idea to focus the general idea to make your voicepack future-proof.

List of core taunts

These taunts are taunts which every voicepack should have to have a decent quality and to avoid awkward silence.

List of extra taunts

You should generally support these taunts as well, if you can. But if you don't it's not a big deal, since there are sane fallbacks or the silence is not awkwards.

List of unused taunt files

There are a couple of taunt files found in the repository which aren't used in the game yet. You don't have to record these. Adding these files to your voice pack won't have any effect at the moment.

There are plans to add Perfect.ogg eventually (with fallback, of course!), but don't even bother about the other 4 ones.

File name Supposedly used when … Example
Perfect.ogg … a perfect shot was made (we're not sure yet how a “perfect shot” is defined) “I bet that stings a bit.”
Bungee.ogg … hog does bungee-jumping. Unlikely this will be added “Geronimo!”
FlawlessPossibility.ogg … team sees a chance for a flawless victory. Unlikely this will be added Unknown
VictoryPossibility.ogg … team sees a chance for a victory. Unlikely this will be added “We stand victorious.”
Whoopsee.ogg … no idea what this is good for. Maybe when hog screws up or falls down? Unlikely this will be added “Woah!”
