Yep, that’s what I’ve encountered ever since upping to wlm2009. I know back then I was really against the idea of upgrading but hey, back then there wasn’t WLM PLUS! for 09! lol
Anyway I’ve searched HIGHHHH and LOWWWW for any ways to rectify this but to no avail.. Mess.be, plus! forums etc. all yielded zero results.
Therefore I decided to take things into my own hands and went about editing those default sounds that were too soft and WOOT! i’m a happy man now. (yes i belong to the rare few that LOVESSSS the alerts in WLM! xD )
Personal preferences aside, I really think the default volumes for the default alerts are ridiculously soft.
Anyway, for those who are interested in my boosted WLM2009 sounds,
Basically I boosted them by about 25%(from totally inaudible to audible for me). so it shouldn’t be too loud.. I guess??
1. Download, unrar, go into the folder
2. Cut/copy/whatever everything into C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger
(PLEASE DO REMEMBER TO MAKE A BACKUP OF THE ORIGINAL FILES BEFORE PROCEEDING!! just in case.)
If you’d prefer to edit them files yourself, u can do so with Windows Movie Maker. I used that for mine.
Since I’m so lazy, I’ll only provide instructions for using WMM(it’s not really very hard imo) if requested, else.. no go.
that is all.
