Developer Briefing #90 - Let’s hear your Wilhelm scream!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Welcome to Developer Briefing #90!

Today's Brief comes to you from Black Matter Dev Spono who brings with him an exciting opportunity...

A Message From Spono - Let’s hear your Wilhelm scream!

Hello everyone, Spono here.

Start LOOSENING up those vocal chords!

We are very excited to give our community an opportunity to become a larger part of Hell Let Loose.

We’re asking those of you with some talent (or without any talent whatsoever!), to submit one or more of the following sounds in a YouTube video. This will then be considered for implementation into HLL, as well as securing you a spot in the credits.

We’ve listened to much of the community feedback about adding greater ambience to the battlefield with the grunts, screams and voice lines of soldiers. While we’ve been planning to create these sounds ourselves, we felt it could be good fun to open this up to our beloved community first. You can be as creative as you wish - we’re excited to see what you come up with! But please bear in mind, to be considered for game implementation we want sounds that are in line with the vibe of HLL, and audio that would add to the atmosphere without it breaking immersion.

What the hell is a Wilhelm scream?

The Wilhelm scream is an iconic sound effect used in over 400 films and TV series since 1951. You have likely heard it many times before, perhaps not ever knowing exactly what it was.

Still not sure what the Wilhelm scream is, watch this video from WatchMojo


So yes that’s right, your Wilhelm scream, war cries, moments of anguish have an opportunity to become embedded into Hell Let Loose and history forever!

Your Submission

Submissions will only be accepted as a YouTube link via this {LINK REMOVED}

All submissions received via this form will then be considered for possible implementation into Hell Let Loose!

We ask that you title your video: Hell Let Loose Wilhelm Audio Submission. And include your Discord name, ID and clan tag if you wish.

Example here: Hell Let Loose Wilhelm Audio Submission - Spono#7368

You can find your ID at the bottom left of your Discord and copy it by simply clicking on it. If you are not a member of the official Hell Let Loose Discord yet, you can join by simply clicking on this DISCORD LINK[discord.gg] and following the instructions. We also recommend installing the Discord App if you have not done so already.

We ask that you label your sound(s) and use the description area to timestamp them if you wish to do multiple sounds in one video. Please only one submission per person!

*By submitting to this {LINK REMOVED} you give Black Matter the right to use your submission for purposes of game content and or marketing material.

If we do like your video submission we will reach out to you via email and or Discord and make sure you are added to the in game credits and receive the deserved acknowledgement!

We will also supply you with a couple of game keys, so you can show off to your mates. And maybe even a certificate that you can put on the fridge :D

Please note, It is very important that you use your own original voice! And we will verify this with you.

What we want!

Your video excerpt should not last more than 60 seconds, and can be a series of sounds and footage strung together. It should contain footage of your own gameplay, with your sounds edited in.

It can be as amateur or professional as you like, but the focus is audio quality.

We are at this stage after both the United States, and or German variations of the following sounds.

You can get creative, but the sound must be original and what the player would emit orally.

You can choose one or more of the 10 sounds for your video up to 60 seconds.

Wilhelm Scream:
1 . Your best death scream/cry

Fatal Damage:
2. Bullet to the Head
3. Bullet to the Body
4. Ran over by vehicle
5. Dismembered
6. Drowning

None Fatal damage:
7. Bullet
8. Shrapnel/Explosion
9. Fall damage
10. Burning/On Fire

To be considered for including into HLL
  • Must be a clean original recording.
  • Not have added effects or reverberation

Audio Quality:

Please keep any audio files you use in your video SEPARATE from the in-game audio, such as WAV files. This is because we will likely request them from you.

Post editing in the form of file clean-up/de-noise is welcomed but by no means necessary.

Other accepted file formats if necessary but not preferred:

Minimum Requirements
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
Bit Depth: 16 bit

Maximum Requirements
Sample Rate: 96 kHz
Bit Depth: 24bit

How much time do you have?

Last day for submissions will be on the 2nd of September, giving you almost 2 weeks. After that the form will be closed.

You Understand

Again it is very important that you use your own original sounds. If it does not meet the audio specification we may not be able to use it, so please keep this in mind.

If we love your video submission we will reach out to you and make sure you are also added to the in game credits, and may request raw audio files so again please keep these saved. We will likely share some of these amazing videos with you all in Discord. And we are sure to see them on the Hell Let Loose subreddit too.

*By submitting to this form you acknowledge and give Black Matter the permission to use your submission for purposes of in-game content, social media, marketing material and in any other manner, platform or format we may choose.

We are currently working on our next roadmap, and will share this with you in next weeks Developer Briefing!
