About Sniff-B-Gone

This is a quick mod to remove the sniffing sound that worgen do. If you like the noise good for you. Personally it annoys the ever living crud out of me.

How it works

It places empty sound files for those noises in to the Data folder that override the defaults. It removes the sound for males and females and should work on NPCs as well.

How to install

Simply extract the zip in to your World of Warcraft folder. Directory structure must be maintained for this to work. It does NOT go in the Interface folder

It installs in to <WoW Install>\Data\Sound\Creature\worgen<male & female>

Do not use the Curse Client. Since this does not go in to the Interface folder the Curse Client will not work.

v1.2

Changed file extension from .wav to .ogg for compatibility with latest patch

v1.1

Reduced the filesize cuz the wasted 4kb per file annoyed me.

v1.0

Initial Release. Should work.

    I don't even have WoW installed anymore and unfortunately none of my friends/guildies still have an active account either so thank you for informing me of this issue. Version 1.2 has been uploaded and should show up soon.

    If anyone else found the 'sniffing' sound returned following the 4.3.3 patch, changing the suffix of the six files included in this download from '.wav' to '.ogg' has again silenced the sound for me. Make sure you restart the game client for this to take effect.

    Hoping that helps someone else.

    (If, in Windows, you have known file extensions hidden you'll need to disable that to see the '.wav' extension and be able to change it. Windows will also warn about the file becoming unusable, click 'yes' to proceed with the change.)

    That worked like a charm. Thanks for the info. Cool

    Any chance of making a version of this to get rid of the chakra / inner focus sounds of priests, it's really annoying when they keep it going for a minute

    Nothing is more annoying than listing to that stupid dog slobbering, mouth slurping, lip smacking noise from a Worgen while wearing headphones. Makes ones skin crawl and forces one to keep a bucket next to the PC just in case in makes you nauseous.

    Thanks so much for this mod.

    I'm not sure what Blizzard was thinking when they recorded that god awful sound.

    Oh man ... *curtsy before you* Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I love my worgen, but can't express how irritating the nearly constant snuffling is. O.o *downloads and breathes a sigh of relief*

    in my data folder i have no sound folder. there's no individual sound files to replace... yes, i'm on a pc.
  • #26
    nevermind. by putting the sound folder into the data folder, it made the sniffs stop anyway. so this isn't replacing files, it's creating them.
  • #22
    Awesome! Thank you!

    Heres another sound request: Can you put up a file that replaces the god awful shadowpriest Mindflay sound with the more tolerable drain life sound from warlocks? The mindflay sound is holymissileloop
  • #23
    I would prefer to keep projects restricted to the removal of sounds as opposed to the replacement of them.

    Aside from the increased time involved (WoW can't actually play its own extracted audio, requiring re-encoding) which I'm happy to do, sound is a very subjective thing. Someone might want Ice Lance to sound like Starsurge while another person may feel that Starsurge is a dumb idea and feel the Banshee death scream is ideal. I could potentially reach a point where I am pumping out hundreds of mods that in fact had little public interest beyond the person who requested it.

    And the first request I got for a replacement from someone's favourite anime would cause me to die a little inside.

    At some point in the future I may upload a step-by-step tutorial for sound replacement so people can customize their audio to their heart's content.

    If you'd like I can throw up a quick mod that mutes Mindflay?
