A simple Python script that, given a list of player names, outputs a random pairing of them (representing two players who will fight) and creates .wav files for each pairing. The .wav files contain a text-to-speech reading of the first player's name, followed by a customizable phrase (say, a classic "VERSUS" line?) and ends with the second player's name.
smash-tourney accepts a
versus.wav file in your working directory. This is used to customize the sound used in the end result. Previously, I had included the file in this repository, but I'm not quite sure I'm allowed to do that. Instead, I'll link to The Sounds Resource, where you can find Smash Bros announcer voice samples. Make sure the file is called
versus.wav inside your working directory!
How to use
Intended for use with Python >= 3.6.
You can install smash-tourney using pip!
$ pip install smash-tourney
Next, you'll need to create a file with line-separated names for the players who will be participating the the tourney.
You're ready to run the script! Suppose the file with the player names is called
names.txt in the current directory. Then simply run:
$ smash-tourney names.txt
smash-tourney will create a folder called
tourney in its working directory, where it will store the created .wav files for convenience.
