How to change and use custom sounds in CS:GO
- A Tutorial for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
This tutorial will cover how to customize sounds for the following:
-Weapon sounds (firing sound, reload, draw etc.)
i am yet to figure out how to change the player damage sounds.....
This tutorial is written assuming you already have a custom soundfile intended to replace cs:go's
For weapon sounds:
1.Go to steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\scripts
3.Search (CTRL+F) the text for the soundfile you wish to replace (ex. the deagle's firing sound would be "deagle-1.wav")
4.Change file-path-text to somthing/anything different (ex. "weapons/deagle/deagle-1.wav" to "weaponsRAWRT/deagle/deagle-1.wav")
5.just repeat steps 3 & 4 if you wish to replace multiple sounds
6.save the .txt
7.now go to the new file path you specified in your game_sounds_weapons.txt (ex. in this case its "weaponsRAWRT/deagle/deagle-1.wav")
8.place your custom sound file in the directory and name it the name you specified in the .txt (ex. in this case its "deagle-1.wav")
9.Startup CSGO and open up the dev console
10.You are going to type in the CVAR: snd_updateaudiocache
11.after typing this CVAR, the console should show a log of newly added soundfiles (your custom sound file should be among this list)
12.The sounds should work in-game!
To replace player footsteps you have to open "game_sounds_pysics.txt"
and edit the text that reads "player/footsteps/XXXX.wav" (XXXX being the footstep sound files)
I released a personal soundpack on the csgo steamforums with these edits in action, you can download it yourself for reference (I cannot and will not release it on gamebanana)
Using custom scripts, custom VPK's etc. (which are essential for custom content for CSGO and other L4d2-branch source games) will get you kicked from sv_pure servers (meaning, you cant play on matchmaking servers)
hopefully valve will implement a addon system like l4d2 or make sv_pure 0 servers or playlists
Happy fragging and a happy Holidays!
I'm having the same problem as "mathieucore3".
Even after two years it's still not working.
Just no sound, followed exactly every step twice.
Now what do I do? All I wanted was just to change the default AK-47's firing sound to CSS' one.
Wow, this really worked for me! I can finally port my custom sound pack from CSS to CSGO, now. However, I do have one question (which will probably go unanswered since this tutorial is 2 years old):
How do you change it so the firing sound doesn't stack? My replacements sound terrible this way, and I want them to play CSS-style where the sound loops for each shot.

Yes I'm agree with you but I think it's important to add that ( for starters ).

i thought it was obvious (since just about every csgo mod on this site will be sv_pure restricted), but ok
