Description:

Rocket: Robot on Wheels is a cool game, but there's a few awful horrible no-good repetitive sound effects that become really grating over time. The "Rocket Shuts the Hell Up" patch does the following:

  • Rocket's "Whoo-hoo!" vocalization during double-jumps has been removed (This is the big one).
  • The awful "swish" sound that happens when adjusting the camera with the C-buttons has been removed.
  • The "Get Health" sound effect has been slightly reduced in volume (Shit was loud).

All other sound effects are untouched.

If you really really hate Rocket's vocalizations, there's also a "Rocket Shuts the FUCK Up" patch that removes every single one of Rocket’s vocalizations, making the little bastard mute forever. This approach is a little heavy-handed, though - It feels kinda weird to play a platformer with no jump sound.

Rocket is a great game, and now it can be enjoyed without those little audio microaggressions. Have a good time!

PS: This is for the US version only right now, sorry. Maybe one day. I'll mark this as "In progress" until then.

Changelog:

  • v420.69 - Initial release
  • v420.69a - Bugfix to "Rocket Shuts the FUCK Up": Rocket no longer vocalizes when hurt (he has no mouth, so he mustn't scream).
