You mean to create a wave file at all or to give it the crackling effect that it's being broadcast over a 2-way radio?

Yes, heres a small sample

command 5 1, Do you copy. Over
5 1 command, Yes we copy over.

I just want to be able to make wave files like the ones they made for the maps that come with the games. they don't have to sound just like them, just so that game is more interesting to play. that way players will have a better idea about whats going on and what to do.

Plug a mic into the mic connector on your computer soundcard (it's usually red, your speaker one should be green), open sound recorder (if you can't find it on your start bar, go to START|Run and type "sndrec32" and it'll pop up. To use it, press the record button (red circle) and say what you want into the mic, hit stop at the end. Then go to File|Save and name the WAV file something you'll understand somewhere you can find it. Hit File|New to start a new sound, and repeat for as many as you need.

Easy as pie. You'll probably find you're a pretty crappy voice actor though. I don't even do my own business voicemail messages anymore... I use a digitized text-to-speech process.

What you need is an audio editor. Audacity is a full-featured editor, that is also free. What more could you ask? Here's a quick sample that achieves the effect I think you're looking for that I was able to throw together in a couple minutes:

radio-chatter.mp3

Yeah, Audacity can handle a bunch of sound formats including WAV. I just made it an mp3 to minimize the file size.

Try this direct download link.

That doesn't work. I downloaded a old ver 1.2.4b I guess it's better then nothing, Can you send me a step by step tutorial on what you did, and do you have any idea how many voices are avaliable in this software. and thanks again

The software doesn't include voices. You'll need to record your own voice, then play with the effects filters and noise generator to get the effect you want. I don't have a tutorial. Just play around with it. It's not too hard.
