Muted Sounds - Combat  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r18
by: sp00n [More]

******
I don't play anymore, you should check out this addon instead:
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...alversion.html
******




Updated for 4.3.4


This file removes all* combat sound files from the game so that you can clearly hear your addon sounds (and also boss speeches!).
I tried to filter out all boss emotes and speeches/events in this version. Mistakes may happen of course, but I'm quite happy with it.

If you want 100% muted ingame sound, check out the other file here.


Installation:
Extract the .rar into /Data directly so that you have a /Data/Sound directory.


* Note:
It may not remove 100% of the combat sounds, especially if Blizzard decided to add a new spell or alter existing ones. Some sounds are pesky little buggers that hide somewhere else. If you identify them, let me know, and I will add them to this file.


This mod was inspired by silverwind's Bossmod Sound Fix (while game is muted). It does however not rely on files with zero byte content but on "real" muted valid sound files (ogg and wav). The zero byte sound files gave me problems while playing addon sounds, where half of them just didn't play.
I don't have this problem with valid files.

Re: Mini jouster wing sound

there's some type of clanging sound from an ability but I'm not sure what the ability is, that's coming through in 4.3

I think it's Hammer of the Righteous, I found hammer of the righteous precast, & hammer of the righteous impact but not sure which one was altered or if a completely new one was introduced.

Hm, I've loaded up my level 73 paladin twink and didn't notice any sound being played when using Hammer of the Righteous.

It might have been SPELL_WR_Devastate_Impact_01 to _10. I'm currently updating the the addons to the final build.

Don't really know what the mini jouster sound supersimme mentioned should be though.

But I've noticed a different problem (and a fix for it!):

If anybody has problem hearing sounds in the outside parts of Dragon Soul (like, not hearing any sounds at all, boss speeches, addon sounds, etc), try disabling the Ambient Sound in your WoW sound options.


I don't know if this is specific to my computer, but it was driving me mad that I couldn't hear anything during boss encounters, and disabling the option proved to be a reliable fix so far.

I have no idea for that sound file, it doesn't seem to be a new file alltogether but rather a simply a changed file. At least I can't find any file with that name in the files added in 4.3.


Your best bet is probably to install the "muted - all" version, enter the game as a warlock (or have a warlock buddy), go to a place without other players near and use a tool like Process Monitor to observe the files accesses by the WoW executable when you're casting Shadowbolt.
At least that's how I did it for spells I couldn't identify.

Finally found it while searching through the sound cache MPQs

Hi, I think im having the same problem, but that doesn't works for me. I just downloaded it, extract it into Wow/data and all that. But now I only hear addon sounds. And I thought this included boss sounds/speaches aswell? Since that was kinda the reason for why I downloaded this. My only thought is, should I have ''Enable sound'' checked, or unchecked?( While the rest is unchecked, ambient/sound effects...) ive tried both and none of them are working..So please give me your thoughts about what im might be doing wrong.

Of course "Enable Sound" has to be checked, and as far as I know "Sound Effects" has to be enabled as well, or you won't hear any boss speeches etc.
I haven't specifically tested this in a raid, but at least the NPC greetings won't work if "Sound Effects" is unchecked.


I did notice however that Ambient Sound seems to magically enable itself during a Dragon Soul raid (most times on Ultraxion), so make sure you're checking that it's really disabled.

I have no idea what you're talking about and/or what error you're seeing. A little more info please.

// Edit
Just went there, noticed nothing problematic.

Re: Re: Same but different

Looks like they tinkered with some of the ability sounds for 4.3.2, I'm not sure what they all are though; some of them are for inquisition, holy radiance & light of dawn
