Hi all, anyone got a step by step guide to installing Tomtom legit voices (eg the new darth vader voice) and the tools required to generate a working voice? Lots of downloads but no instructions!
TT Onev1, 9.430 by bmwdriver, 900.4602-> UK&RoI, Europe; 895.4438 -> PL.
No support over PM - check Tomtom Tutorials Section and ask within forums.
Biggest lie in the inernet: I searched but did not find.
if u know how to use Easyusetools_for Keygen_Mapcheck_Metacheck_ttsystempatcher then you leave your map in insert_meta_from_Map_here with the voice file u want ,chk bmp, vif all these in the same folder as map and voala ur done patch then its all good
I'm a little confused by these instructions. I have no trouble patching maps and getting the dct file but are you suggesting leaving a map .meta file in the insert_meta... folder along with the bmp, vif etc files from a voice premium and then patching to get the .dct file?
As when I do this with the meta.txt file, which of course does not match the random map.meta file I have added it doesnt accept it. I don't understand how to get Easyusetools to specifically create a .dct for anything other than a map meta file. I can't work out how to use a meta.txt file designed for a voice and getting easyusetools to create anything for me with that
I'm sorry it may be glaringly obvious but I simply don't understand.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, Ive searched the forums but cant find any information other than patching the main program or the maps
Here's one easy way.. open the progs folder and then the meta text and make sure it has the voices you need listed on it..if it doesn't go and grab a new one from maverick that does..
Next..open the device id text and write yours into it in UPPER CASE with no space in the middle and save it to device id.txt...
Now open up the Insert_meta_from_map_here folder and delete everything inside it and then add to it all the different parts of any voice you want to use (it doesn't need all of them but having them there wont hurt and it simplifies things later on)..
Next use Runmefordct and select option 1 followed by option 1 which should create the new dct files that the premium voices require whilst ignoring any voices that aren't shown within the meta text..
Finally..copy the entire contents of the Insert_meta_from_map folder to the voices folder on your device/SD card...job done!
As a final point..it's worth bearing in mind that there are quite a few voices about that "share" or have the same numbers identifying them..its quite easy to overwrite (and then end up losing) a voice you used to have with a different one which you might not want and if the older voice had a matching bmp file and the newer one doesn't you wont even know until you try and use it and find out that "Old Granny" is in reality "perverted scumbag" as an extreme example..
I followed these instructions to the letter, the voice is on my tomtom go 520 but says it is unusable currently trying to install billy connolly uk yards.
It shows up in my voices but it will not work tried several times
Any suggestions guys??? apart from launch tomtom out the window lol
i do my voices by downloading a map...eg uk and roi 850 .to my desktop.. i put the two voice files in the map folder.. the data file n the vif file..i then download alberts easy activator.....open albert s easy activator..click on ..use tt 8 keygen.ex....step 2 put in device s id ..u can find this either by browsin ur back up and goin to ttgo (bif file) or connectin ur device and openin root and goin to ttgo (bif file)......step 3 browse maps ..goto desktop and put in the map u put there eg uk and roi 850...step 4..put in the meta file ...i normally put it on the desktop and browse to find it ...meta file normally cums with the voice files...click on the meta file and open, when browsing usin alberts easy activator ...then click on...step 5 generate the meta dct file......this show generate the dct file for ur voice which u will find in the map on the desktop uk and roi 850 . i then connect my tomtom device to the laptop, turn off tomtom home and goto computer in start menu of laptop..click on the tomtom icon which open s the tomtom device root(list of folders and files)...i then copy all 3 file s data .vif and dct file from the desktop map uk and roi 850 and paste to voices folder on the root of my tomtom device,,,, hope this helps ...u can find albert s easy activator on this site... i ve just read this back and this sounds complicated but is really easy once u ve done it once

I must be missing something I followed all the instructions above and now the voice does not even show up on my TOMTOM GO 520. well maybe best way is just to buy them lol
this is how I got them working, backup you tomtom just incase its goes wrong, copy all the voises you want into the voice folder on your tomtom, should be 3 files for each voise, but not the meta files forget about them you dont need them, then copy FastActivate Premium to the root of your tomtom and run it, click on update meta then click maps/voices/speedcams, after that click ttsystem/PNDnavigtor thats it they should work
