I'm either going crazy, or...
After the update, whenever I play CSS, I hear a squishy sound. It's best described as a periodically recurring wet squeak. I've no idea what it is, but it's starting to get on my nerves. Anyone else get it? Any way to fix it?

Does something pop up on the screen, like text or something? It's probably just the server.

Its whenever there is a message, including server message.

It is at its worst when there is a voting system and it repeats constantly for 2 minutes straight

This is the hint hud giving you in game hints. It's a remnant of the O.B. that was used in TF2. Valve and HPE were asked by us to remove it or a way to disable it. Hopefully they'll get to it on the next update or soon.

Alright. Now that we have deducted that I am in fact not crazy, let's focus on the next step.
Does anyone know a command to turn this damn sound off? I guess you could replace the sound file responsible with a blank sound file, would that work?

Maybe, I don't know how the file validation system works, it might just replace the file when you re-run CS:S.

Give it a try.

Wouldnt i work on sv_pure 0 servers, or a server allowing it in the whitelist?

Unfortunately, after a little digging around, I was unable to find the sound file.

This is what i think... If u have skinds for guns and u are playing on server with sv_pure 1 (i think) the skins wont work and the sounds too, so... whenever somone switch to the weapon i get that sound. its like static sound but for less then a second. if u have custom skinds maybe u should delete them until valve will fix the issue

There's also the sound when you join a team. Like a whistle but a fail whistle like the fail sounds anyone who plays team fail 2 make.

yeah i play vanilla, no skins or custom stuff and i get this, so it isnt that.

i reckon its asthmatic gremlins tbh.

actually, more than that, i reckon its asthmatic valve gremlins.

For me it's the sounds of an AUG or M4 reloading all at once.
