Does the character make that squeaking noise the entire game?
I tried the demo for this, and the squeaking armor noise the main character makes when walking drove me nuts. Like nails on a blackboard. Is that noise there the entire game? Does it go away if you get better armor?

I don't remember this.. Might be a character trait.

Hmm... I think they do make a noise when they walk, though if I remember correctly it sounds more like chain mail links, it's not squeaky at all.

A lot of video games have noises for character movement. Normally your brain tunes it out, so unless you're obsessing about it, you basically stop hearing it after a few minutes.

No sound would be a serious hinderance.

So if the game annoys me I must be mentally ill. Nice response.

Like I said, a huge number of games have some sort of sound effect for the character moving and the vast majority of people aren't consciously aware of it while playing.

Everyone's got weird habits, pet peeves and whatnot... but objectively, to reject an entire game because of one trivial sound effect is seriously out there. I'm not saying you should be put in a straight jacket or go on medication, but you should be aware this sound thing is not something people could normally even begin to think of as an issue.

I realize this isn't helpful, but the reality is I've never seen a game that gave you a list of every available sound effect and giving you the option of disabling individual ones.

I know what he's talking about. There is a "chain dragging" sort of noise when the character walks because he is in a suit of armor after all.

There is no way to remove it, but you can lower the SFX volume and increase the music volume to lessen the sound.

When I first started playing I noticed the noise (though I wouldn't personally describe it as a squeak, just sounds like metal boots clanging on the floor) on my first couple of characters, but after I started getting into the game more I stopped noticing it. As for how to fix it, sadly there isn't much you can do, the noise never changes or goes away, so you are stuck turning down the sound in the options.

Couldn't you replace the sound file with a track of silence named the same?

Actually, yes, if a tiny little repeatative noise annoys you to the point of not being to enjoy something, you are "mentally ill". If you told a psychologist of this trait, you'd be tested for an obsessive disorder or ADHD.

Theres nothing wrong with being "mentally ill", or as the open minded would put it, "different". Just like any other disease or disorder, you learn to live with it. No need to be so antagonistic.

Ironically, this entire game is about disorders and traits.

No one ever tolerates the constant beeping of having low health.

This quote is so insane I had to reply.

Playing repetitive sounds that annoy people is what torturers do to break people. So a human being who is annoyed by repetitive sounds is not mentally ill, they are reacting in a way that psychologists have determined all human beings will react to repetitive noises if they are exposed to the right one for a long enough period of time.

For this guy the sound of the character walking over the length of time he played the game had the same effect on him that a torture victim feels when a torturer subjects them to repetitive sound for days or months like some guy did to some girls by blasting repetitive sound into their rooms in a news story I read about today.

If you were a certain kind of person you could make the case that the original poster "is a weak person because he has very little resistance to audible torture of certain types", but saying he is "mentally ill" is untrue, inaccurate, rude, meanspirited, and malicious.

Personal attacks against the OP is stupid, and I have seen people complain about sillier things. Telling him he has ADHD because he didn't like a single sound in a game is absurd.

As for a solution, I don't think there is one, because others have said its a non issue for them, but you can lower the SFX enough that the music overpowers it.
