    Im currently looking to replace one annoying spellcasting sound that the Channeler is making.
    Its the one sound when they are casting their Arrows, the channelingsound.

    I have located the sound by using a program called eq2vpktool.
    I have read in other places that you can infact "replace" a sound simply by taking another one that you like better and naming it the same thing as the one you want to replace.

    I have found 2 ways of doing it...placing it here..



    When I use eq2vpktool the directory is..

    Anyway, I have tried every possible way that Ive read to make this to work.
    I have put it in UI/sounds...in my UI folder and sound. Ive even tried to use the exact same folders that the tool says its in.
    Ive added the bluddy sound everywhere and still it wont use it.
    I read about a guy in a very old thread that wanted help with a sound and he got this advice.
    Am I doing it completly wrong?..why cant my game "use" the new .wav file instead?

    Have you tried PM'ing a dev on the forums?
    I didn't know that you could change sounds via the UI folder, I thought that they were all based in the memory based temp folder for when the VPK's were expanded.
    If you tried to re-pack a VPK it has a high possibility of being overwritten on a full file scan with the patcher too.
    If you are successful with doing it via the UI folder let us know.

    I must be one of the few using the White background theme. I had to highlight the yellow text to read it. :)

    I was able to create a Custom folder and add sounds to it. But I only know for sure it works for the Guild Hall music.

    (your install folder)\EverQuest II\custom_music\zones\Guildhalls

    A similar technique might work for you. Changing the UI music just gets refreshed back to the original one whenever it's accessed.

    As a stopgap, you can turn off the 3D sounds I think, or just turn it way down. The only time I think 3d sounds are essential is when I'm experimenting. Hope that helps!
