Description

Remove very annoying sound of rifle grenade flying next to/towards a player.

Hatcher wrote on Discord (19.02.2019):

I’ve found that sound. It’s an original sound file from etmain’s pak0.pk3.
sound\weapons\garand\m1_grenade_fly.wav
sound\weapons\k43\k43_grenade_fly.wav
Most likely the original developers decided on not using it after all for the same reason we’re complaining about. It’s nost just annoying but also a cheesy sound effect. Later mods like ETPub which Legacy is based on must’ve decided to reintroduce it if it wasn’t somebody from Legacy.

Note: the SDL and OpenAL backend provide a quite different experience (f.e., I don’t even hear that sound when using the grenade launcher with SDL2, and with OpenAL it actually improves the audio experience imho). I don’t understand the complaints from people saying it’s "loud" and "cheesy", but these issues might be due to using SDL2 - I have been using OpenAL as my backend of choice since a lot of time. Test and investigate with SDL2 backend.
