    Problem with the new 'drumroll' Game Ready sound? Look no further!

    So,

    I just came across quite a few posts regarding the new game ready sound,and how lots of people are not liking it.I have come up with a very simple mod.

    I was going through the dota vpk's ,found one cool unused tune that could be used as the match ready sound.It will alert you properly and will not tear your ears off too (and totally off-theme to how dota2 music sounds ,thats why I guess I can't hear it anywhere else).

    Instructions (its very simple,takes a minute)

    -Download the set of sound files HERE

    Its just a self-extracting archive I created,which ,upon extraction will create a folder named 'ui',which will contain the sound files.

    -Open your dota2 sound directory.Mine is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\sound

    -Paste the 'ui' folder you newly extracted,inside the sound folder

    -Add -override_vpk to your dota2 launch options in Steam.

    -Have fun!



    EDIT- OKAY! I apologise for making a self-extracting archive,I really didn't think it would keep showing suspicious on your AV's.Anyways,here are the two audio files respectively-

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...phant_bong.mp3

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...atch_ready.mp3

    If you're using the self-extractor,its the best ,it straightaway makes a folder which you paste in the sound directory.

    If you're not trusting all that ,and downloading the 'audio files' seperately,then you gotta go into the sound directory>make a new folder called 'ui' (if it doesnt exist)>make another folder called 'stingers' inside the 'ui' folder,and paste these two audio files in the 'stingers' folder

    Dont forget to add -override_vpk.

    Btw,kuvasz dont be too hasty to judge ,I just want to help y'all!

    Why .exe? Why not zip the file in a folder? I will not use it, I'm just asking why you chose .exe for such a simple task?

    Okay okay.This went just as my friend told me it would.

    So,the original process was making 2 new folders inside the sound directory which can go wrong in a coupla ways.

    I will edit the link and add the two files seperately ,just so you guys know,I dont know shit about making keyloggers lol.

    Anyways,I'm going to edit the link cuz my intent to help totally sort of backfired.

    Dude ,Im really sorry I made this post at 6 AM in the morning,a little too tired to think of Mac and Linux,I'm editing the links right now to contain both of them files seperately and editing the instructions aswell.

    Sorry for the trouble
