To create an empty file, right click in the folder and choose New > Text Document, and rename it to one of the above, without the ".txt". If you can't see file extensions, make sure they're enabled in your folder options (In any folder: Tools menu (press Alt key once to see it) > Folder Options > View tab > Uncheck "Hide exensions for known file types")
Man i havent been playing with sounds ingame since 2 days after vanilla release =O. Lately ive become pretty annoyed by the fact that i cant turn on only NPC emotes and get rid of all that static noise that is the rest of WoW's sound system, i know i can turn most of it off, but spells and animal noise is still there.
so thx for the headsup on just deleting the sound files :P i always assume that the game would just recreate them once reloaded.
I guit the game because of this issue. I play wow on different computers and i am also a sound freak. I always have sounds, ambient sounds ans the music on at all times, and i play a frost mage. I cannot use my favoured talents because of the sound issue. It basically broke my experience with this game.
