    Re: Mara's old voice returns!!

    Just found an interesting discrepancy with the YouTube recording compared to the variants I have. The "You looked into my eyes" part sounds identical to two of the prior variants, as noted previously. But then he says, "Your path now leads to the gates of doom." That emphasis on "your" isn't present in my recordings. It sounds like it's just an alternate take, though, and it was probably present before, depending on which variant you received. For some reason it's just not among the recordings I have. I notice there's also now a greater pause between the two lines than there was before. I'm getting nitpicky here, though. I'm just glad the old voice is back.

    Also I should note that when you go through the observatory of the future he says "your destiny now leads to the gates of doom"

    That was always one of the variants. It's the one that followed "No!" (as opposed to "Infidels!" or "Foolish Mortals!").

    I see, I believed that was always one of them.

    Re: Mara's old voice returns!!

    OMG!!

    YES YES YES YES!!!

    THANK YOU FOR THIS WONDERFUL NEWS!


    As to the voice matter, to me it sounds like the original voice actor, but sounds a bit differnt. Maybe due to aging? O that doesnt make sense? I dunno. May also be the sound quality.

    But either way I am happy as hell. So glad that horrible voice is gone. The funny thing too is that I was just watching some new videos on youtube of the new voice and decided to come to MiceChat to see if there's neem anymore talk about the dislkike for the new voice. And behold I find this!

    Hopefully they can find a way to add those lines back into the dialogue while keeping the eye animation audio, seems as if there's enough time to pull it off. So glad though that the original voice is back.

    Re: Mara's old voice returns!!

    Here's a question I have, why isnt there any information on who voices Mara? Is it to keep it unknown and/or mysterious?

    1) Awesome. That voice has been there from the beginning and it works. I find it to be as much a part of the ride as Thurl Ravenscroft is to Mansion.

    2) Why do people assume that James Earl Jones has to be the one doing the voice just because it is deep and ominous? It's not him. I'd bet money on it.

    3) I'd like to believe that the internet petitions and chatter was the catalyst for reverting back to the old voice. Part of me though suspects that someone with some serious pull heard it, and hated it.

    The rumor is that James Earl Jones provided the voice, but I can't seem to find any concrete source that confirms this.

    Am I the only one that thinks the bood splatter effect is ten times cooler and more effective than the other two?

    It is the same original recording. They just modified it slightly by removing the "no" or "foolish mortals" or "infidel"

    If you're referring to the Ghost Host in the Haunted Mansion, then that's Paul Frees. Thurl Ravenscroft is one of the singing busts in the graveyard. The one with the mustache if I know correctly here.

    Could the reason be why the original Mara voice sounds a little different is because they may have installed a brand new sound system for the idol itself?
