If you want to change or completely remove <call>s from FFXI you can take the following steps.
1.) Open your "Program Files" folder for your system.
2.) Find the "PlayOnline" folder and go into that and then go into "SquareEnix".
3.) Open the "FINAL FANTASY XI" directory.
4.) Open the "sounds" directory.
5.) Go into the "win" directory then go into "se" (sound effects) directory.
6.) Go into the "se000" directory.
The following are the filenames of the various <call>s:
I don't recommend you delete them completely in case you want to save them, so you can either move them to a new folder that you create named "backup", or you can rename their file extention. For instance, to make <call16> inaudible you would rename se000033.spw to se000033.bak. When you want to make it audible again you would rename it back to se000033.spw.
Alternatively, if you have one specific call that you enjoy the most you can make every single call sound exactly alike, but keep in mind that it will only effect you. So if you want others to hear that call you have to use its actual sound effect. To make them all sound like <call10>, for example, you would move everything except se000027.spw to a new directory called "backup" that you create. Then you would copy the file se000027.spw as se000017.spw through se000038.spw. Now all your calls sound like <call10>.
If you want to completely remove the <call> effects you can just delete these files, but beware, you will not have any calls from this point forward with no way to recover them if you did not create a backup.
NOTE: FFXI will not be affected negatively by deleting or renaming these sound effects, and FFXI will not give "missing files" errors when doing so. It just simply ignores the files being missing as they are not critical to gameplay.
