Homeworld 2 2003 Voice acting mod

If you’re like me and like the voice acting from the original release of homeworld 2, I found a way to get that back.

Go to Steam\SteamApps\common\Homeworld\HomeworldRM\Data and rename EnglishSpeechHW2Campaign.bIg to something else,

Then Install your old copy of Homeworld 2, and grab the EnglishSpeech.beg file from the Homeworld2/data folder and copy it to your desktop and rename it to “EnglishSpeechHW2Campaign.big” and move that into your Steam\SteamApps\common\Homeworld\HomeworldRM\Data folder.

Boot the game and enjoy.


I have a pretty good hunch that if you want the 2003 Voice Acting in Homeworld 2 classic, you can just copy over the EnglishSpeech.big from the 2003 install into \Steam\SteamApps\common\Homeworld\Homeworld2Classic\Data.

Does it work? I would have thought it would have different scripting or filenames or something…

EDIT : Oops, didn’t realise how old it was
