    And the runty crop alert has been removed in this week's hot patch. So it's all good.

  • #356

    Going through them now. I found the plow sounds. Planning to release an update soon.

    Kiingy, as I posted below...

    How do you mute the sounds that the water strider makes while moving, the water footsteps? Also if it is included, how do you mute water footstep sounds in general?

  • #337

    Copy any .wav and .ogg file from the addon, create the following tree path and rename them to:

    1. Sound//Character//Footsteps//Watersplash
    • Footstepsmediumwatera
    • Footstepsmediumwaterb
    • Footstepsmediumwaterc
    • Footstepsmediumwaterd
    • Footstepsmediumwatere
    • Footstepssmallwatera
    • Footstepssmallwaterb
    • Footstepssmallwaterc
    • Footstepssmallwaterd
    • Footstepssmallwatere

    Sounds named medium are the ones for the water strider/mounts.
    Small is generally used for critters/some players (like gnomes).

    Thank you so much, I was wondering though if you could show me how to mute the sound of the azure strider mount while it is on land.

  • #333

    I just wish this was an ACTUALY MUTE addon instead of a sound replacement.  I hate the worgen sniff (and a few other sounds), but some of the others I actually like.

  • #334

    There is no other way to mute specific sounds.

  • #332

    Update is out. Sorry this took so long, busy busy =/

    Waiting for curse approval, wowinterface is usually faster with this kind of thing so you can find the newest version at the link below first

    Please find a way to mute all the music in the Inn! That kazoo garbage and all the other Pandarian Inn music is just horrible.

  • #328

    Having the possibility to mute is nice. I'm no addon guru, but wouldn't it be beter with an addon where you selected what to mute, instead of deselect what you don't want muted?


  • #330

    Not really, its the same thing.

    At this point most sounds are still unmuted, until you want to mute over 50%, its easier to mute selectively than unmute selectively.

    I'm slightly confused. So by extracting this add-on into my Data folder, it is suppose to mute all my sounds? And then if I want to unmute a sound I have to delete the file?

    I installed it and all my sounds are still there. So does this mean that I need to delete the file in order to mute it? That seems opposite what the installation directions are saying. 

    Any help would be appreciated!

  • #325

    If you extract the Sound folder to your Data folder, all sounds in the addon will be muted, if you want to unmute the sound, you delete the file. This will not mute everything.

  • #321

    Need a mute for the mechagnome vendor on the traveller's tundra mammoth. Very loud and excessive noises after you click him.

  • #320

    How do you mute the sounds that the water strider makes while moving, the water footsteps? Also if it is included, how do you mute water footstep sounds in general?
