And also we need some in French and German I've cheked Google translate and managed to find something like :

Tout le monde, attaque ! (Everyone, attack!)
Pas de retraite ! (No retreat !)
Montrer aucune pitié ! (Show no mercy!)
Ne faites aucun prisonnier ! (Take no prisoners!)

Is it correct in French ? Or maybe someone can offer some more expressions or even some more historical ? Also If someone wants to offer some expressions in German - welcome.

First is slightly wrong, it should be "Tout le monde, à l'attaque!" Though honestly I'd just drop the first part and use "A l'attaque!" instead. (or "A l'assaut!")
Third is very slightly wrong, "Montrer" is the infinitive, you want "Montrez" for the imperative. They both sound the same though (well, except that imperative will have a different intonation)
Fourth is grammatically correct but I'd rather use "Pas de prisonnier!" ("No prisoner!") instead.

"Ne montrez aucune pitié" for the third, "ne" is a negation and without it would sound awkard
For the fourth you could also said Ne prenez pas de prisonnier" it also work
I would also add "tuez les tous" (kill them all), god will know it's own  :razz:
 
Pas de pitié! or pas de quartier! sound better to me, but they may be too similar to the others, and I don't speak French anyways other than the little I remember from high school, so take it with a grain of salt. :razz:

At the moment we have in stock http://www.moddb.com/mods/crusaders-way-to-expiation/videos/arab-victory-voices#imagebox (sorry for video sound quality - ingame it sounds good and loud). But we have such a comment in MODDB :
ahmedmed May 13 2014, 3:57pm says:
come on people we don't scream alalalal or scream alllllah but some of Arabian tribes recently make some disturbing sounds before the battle to scare their enemys like other tribes or in some cases Turks.

u can instead put al hamd llah الحمد للهor just Takbir الله اكبر

it is ur mod u can do what ever u want

the allah,alllllah ,alalalal.... is basicaly the war cry of the ottoman Janissary charge, 
fits well for a "fire & sword" mod but not a crusades themes one.
you can even hear it at the end of a modern mehter performance

a simple takbir -  الله اكبر
is enough for the start, you can use it for "charge" instead of hojuom,
which is already in place for attack.

both the takbir & thanking god - alhamdu lillah الحمد لله
can be inserted for the victory at the end.

Pas de retraite ! (No retreat !)
I wonder about this one. Not from the grammar standpoint, but actual usage. Wouldn't such words be generally avoided? In heat of battle not everyone may hear "no" part of "no retreat!". Handful of riders screaming "Run away! Run away!" was enough to rout Duke Mieszko's army in battle of Legnica.
 
:wink: interesting dialog - scene from the 1980s movie -  al-Qādisiyyah
dealing with the conquest of persia... you can snip and use it as a resource

0:03 - is there a duelist? - hal min mubariz هل من مبارز؟

0:10 - who's this? - man hatha? - من هذا؟

0:16 - who amongst you longs for my sword - man minkum yashtaqu lisaifi - من منكم يشتاق لسيفي

0:36 - get me a horse - ilaya be-hisan - الي بحصان

0:45 - is there a duelist? - hal min mubariz هل من مبارز؟

1:03 to 1:12 - Allah is greater - Allahu akbar - الله اكبر

1:16 - what a knight! - ya lahu min faris - يا له من فارس

1:36 - is there a duelist? - hal min mubariz هل من مبارز؟

2:10 - Allah is greater - Allahu akbar - الله اكبر

To be honest, your Turkish accent sounds more like Arabic-Israeli accent :lol:

The source material would probably be to blame there, but that's not the only middle eastern accents I've done when I sent that stuff to you :grin:

But ye; when I do turkish specific accents I'll look at those videos.

No offense bro, it's just my opinion as a Turkish :smile: But as I said, there is no definite Turkish accent and that's why mostly people think that Arabic or any other Middle Eastern accent would be Turkish accent. However, it's not true. Turkish is one of the Ural-Altaic languages while the other Middle Eastern languages are Hami-Sami. It means that original Turkish is totally different from the other languages in the Middle East. So is our accent. But yeah we have some similarities since the Ottoman Empire and our geographic position as a matter of course. I watched many videos showing how Turkish accent is on Youtube to send you and they're all bull**** except a couple of them unfortunately :grin: Anyway, I really would like to help you to make some sounds in Turkish accent :smile: And your voice is just awesome by the way Comrade, I like your job.

I couldn't find its English, sorry :lol: It's language families tree.

Edit: I've just seen your edit after posting it.
 
Yeah- when I meant by source material my friend, I was referring to those youtube videos. I always reference accents and languages or run by actual speakers before doing so; but in the case of your mod I was limited to the Arabic sounding "psuedo Turkish" videos.

I have not yet voiced the Turks yet in this mod for that reason.
 
Wendek, Foeurdr, matmohair1, thanks a lot  :grin:. And very special thanks to Comrade Crimson and Gaëtan Cione - he is Comrade Crimson comrade and our French voice actor.
 
Yea, I am german, so it's pretty much all correct. I also just realize that its probably better to ask someone else wether its offensive towards some players/people.
 
Yep, both are correct.

Hoch die Schilde! ( Raise your shields! )
Dreckige Bogenschützen! ( Damn Archers! )
Brennt ihre Häuser nieder! ( Burn their houses! )
Nehmt nicht mal die Kinder gefangen ( Do not even take the children hostage)
Reitet vor! ( Ride forth! )
Fürchtet sie nicht! ( Do not fear them! )
Rennt um euer Leben! ( Run for your lifes! )

If you want just tell me some shouts you want to have translated.
 
I read on your russian forum that you still had to make a shorter sword for the muslims(?). When that is done, and the voicework, what is left before release? :fruity:

Working on a module system, we need several items for the balance of the multiplayer, to replace some walls and ground textures, to make a few outer terrains, etc. The problem is not how much is left to do -  there is not too much. The question is how long it will take. All team members are not able to do it every day, because every day we are working hard in real life so no predictions on terms I can not give - we just do not know. However, for the first release, we have identified only the most important tasks, since we do not want to delay it indefinitely. Other tasks we intend to solve after the first release.
 
By considering all this cases, can you give us a approximate date ? Like " if everything goes well , you can see it in this 3 months" . I know that is kind a hard for you to tell but you are not promising anything so Its okay for community.
 
I'm more worried about the "Multiplayer only" release then the release date itself. I'm a Singleplayer guy, spent several thousand hours roleplaying as crusader on 1257 AD mod. Worse yet the multiplayer dies in a matter of weeks, i've seen it with several great mods that were in the making for years and then withered and died as no one cares much about multiplayer other then for Napoleonic Wars...

Who knows, maybe i simply misunderstood, could someone care to elaborate, is it both single and multi in the first release or multi only?
