Here's what I posted for Knife on 20th Dec 2001, then again for Net-Viper X on Jan 23rd, then again on 16th April for Bluff Boy Griff, and then again for Sponge on 4th Nov, edited slightly for weapons fire instead of unit voices:
Quick walkthru of process:
Open XCC Mixer
Restore Window (So it isn't maximised)
Goto Launch=>XCC Sound Editor
Open folder containing wave sounds (eg bang.wav & boom.wav)
Drag the two WAV files from the folder into the Sound Editor Window
Close XCC (no longer needed)
Goto the last number before 999=NoCanDo under [SoundList]
Make a new entry using the next number in sequence
Below the debug section (1001 to 1017) make a new sound entry
Save and Close Soundmd.ini
Goto new unit
Enter line Report=WeaponFire (replacing any existing Report line)
Save and Close rulesmd.ini
Run game, build and select unit, attack something.
Sit back, blissful in the knowledge of a job well done!
If you are editing RA2 only, and not YR, then just ignore md whenever you read it.
