CHANGING WEAPON SOUND (WORKS IN SV_PURE 2)
posted in Customization

0 Frags +

So, I actually saw in the No Explosion Smoke Script that they had mentioned sounds in the .txt files.
Kind of brings me back to the time I 'discovered' changing weapon sounds for the first time, made a thread about it, BUT I THOUGHT IT WORKED IN SV_PURE 2 AND IT DIDN'T. Oh god, the cringe.

I replaced the sound files shown in my direct hit file with the one in my rocket launcher file, and it ACTUALLY changed the sound and BYPASSED sv_pure on valve servers.

If you think I'm lying, try it for yourself.

Copy this into tf_weapon_rocketlauncher.txt:
http://pastebin.com/UbiTmp2k

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I initially thought of just posting this into the other thread about the no explosion smoke script, but then I kind of thought about it and then decided that it deserves its own thread.

I would appreciate it if someone would let me know where to find all the weapon files. There are a TON of sound changes I've tried before, and have absolutely adored, most of which involve the enforcer's sound.

I also feel like I hit 200% more things with the Black Box's sound on the Rocket Launcher.
There's some real placebo over 'ere I tell ya.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: If this is actually common info and I'm a retard, am very sorry :(.

I haven't seen anybody mention it, so I thought it might be worth mentioning.

If you mean the sounds then you want to open tf2_sound_misc_dir.vpk with GCFScape iirc

d_bcan you change the original sound to the default rocket launcher tyvm

My first guess would be yes, but as of now I don't know where the direct hit file is, and I've only tried Direct Hit to RL.
but that's another change that I loved to death, its 10/10 worth.

Change the spy cloak sound to a loud sound file and you got yourself a nice cheat, too bad stuff like this is so easily abused because it's great in general

edit;
same goes for medic being fully charged
And for the spy, you could change the sound to a voice screaming "Spy!"

You can find all the isolated sounds in tf2_sound_misc_dir.vpk in your /tf/ folder. You'll need GCFScape to access the files. You can extract them like you would with WinRar or 7Zip.

All of the weapon sounds are under root/sound/weapons. The Black Box weapon sound is "rocket_blackbox_shoot".

(I can upload these sounds if you want any specific ones.)

I hope I've helped!

I'm like 95% sure that both of these things are impossible since there are no calls for sounds in the tf_weapon_invis.ctx file and in the medigun file there are only calls for healing and no heal target available.

This works on same concept as the particle scripts do, you can replace one particle with another one from TF2. At best you will probably be able to replace some reloading/shooting sounds with other ones from TF2. I can't see why anybody would ever do this as so many of the sounds are unique for a reason and none of them are distracting anyway.

d_bcan you change the original sound to the default rocket launcher tyvm

I would really love it if this were possible, but as far as I can tell, there's no individual file for the Original, so we can't change it's sound.

Not through this method, at least.

Is it wrong that I'm surprised there aren't already in-game options to tie specific sounds to certain weapons so long as it doesn't provide an advantage for you? I don't think I've ever seen a game do this, and I can guess on the many possibilities as to why, but you'd think that if devs would limit the possible changes to anything not game breaking, then it'd be a thing.

You can change it to any sound that's found within any of the game_sounds.txt files found in the vpk's afaik. It doesn't necessarily have to be copied over from another one of the ctx files.

The original sounds for example would be changing Weapon_RPG_DirectHit in the example to Weapon_QuakeRPG.

edit I'm dumb, this is the other way around. This is how you get the list of every sound that's usable though, by checking in game_sounds_something.txt

Regarding the RL sound on the Original, I put this on custom/whatever/scripts/game_sounds_weapons.txt and sometimes it works, but other times the Original shoots rockets with the normal sound. I've only tried with sv_pure 2, though.

To my knowledge, I don't think its possible, because it would involve a custom sound file.
But Enforcer/Diamondback/Bazaar Bargain to Shotgun is beautiful.

And THAT'S probably the reason for you missing airshots?

Also this doesn't work on sv_pure 1 using Valve's whitelist.

After some 'experimenting', I think that the reason why it switches sounds for the original is because there are multiple firing sounds for it.

If you transfer any sounds to the normal rocket launcher, they work fine, since it only has 1 firing sound.

no problem
