Hi, welcome to this post, We hope you find this PAYDAY 2 – How to voice over characters line helpful guide.

This guide will tell you how to voice-over characters’ lines (and music too) to anything you want.

Setting up

First, you’ll need a voice mod. You can find most of the voice mods on Google.
here. – []

I get that you might not want to modify the original files. It would be more difficult to explain, so I suggest you get a mod that replaces your character.

You should avoid using mods with the tag, “Work in progress.” or “Discontinued.” Aside from that, they won’t have all of the voice lines.

SuperBLT/BeardLib is highly recommended. This will make life easier.

You will also find the PD2 Soundbank editor.
here. – []

It should be found under the attachments. It should also say “Soundbank editor for.bnk editing (better choice)”. This will allow to convert your files to.wav/.stream.

Convert files

Now that you have all the tools and mods in place, it is time to get on with the job. Unzip the mod. Now go to the PAYDAY2 location. Go to assets. There should a folder called “mod_overrides”. Drag any contents found in your unzipped mod file into that folder.

Once you’re done, go into your mod/ folder and look for another folder called’soundbanks’. There you will see another file called streamed>. Finally, in that folder, you will find multiple files called regular_vox> “safehouse_vo” “char_[whatever your character.]”

Regular_vox will be used for older characters, such as Chains and Dallas. safehouse_vo can be used for… well… their safehouse voices. And char_(blank), which is for the younger characters like Sydney, is char_(blank).

In all folders will files with ID numbers. This is the place where you will find all of the mods’ voice lines.

In a separate window, open the zip file and go to PD2 Soundbank Editor. Open up PD2SoundBankEditor.exe and go to Tools and click “Convert loose files.” It will open a folder that allows you to choose which files you want to transform.

Go to your file and convert all. Once it is done, it should make a copy from the voice lines and convert them into.wav.

Now you are able to listen to your character’s voice.

Replacing files

Now that you have the.wav files, you can use them to replace your.wav. (They must be in.wav

Here’s a tip: Your replacement files should have the exact same name and file extension as the original. It will not function otherwise.

It may be difficult to find which files to replace.

1 – Listen carefully to each file one by one until you find the one you want to replace. Why would you do that?

spread sheet. It will show you all voice line with their ID, who said it, what they said. It is worth making a copy and editing it to only show your characters lines. I also recommend an addon that combines duplicated text because some lines, such as “help”, are repeated a lot.

You can now replace your files by renaming them files. Drag the replacement files into your folder with the original. Click yes.

Next, open your Soundbank editor. Click on “Convert unwanted files” Now, open file. Click in the bottom left corner to click on “Stream Audio Files (*.stream).” Drop to “Waveaudio files (*.wav).

Sort by Date Modified to locate your most recent edited files. Then select them and then convert.

You should now have all edited files in your game!
