I've been trying to just change a single sound and that's the player death sound, the problem is I have no idea what the file is meant to be called and what folder it goes in for the resource pack. I have been trying for a few days and I haven't made any progress, please help.
there are the hashes to search for the original files inside the assets\objects folder if you need them
the paths next to them would be the names and such you need for them and if you want to replace the death sounds for drowning or other sounds you will need to look up the correct path either via http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Sounds.json or the indexes folder inside of assets folder and then checking the appropriate versions .json file. I'm sorry no one else helped you sooner hope this helps.
i am just trying to find the .json sound file for when you are drowning and not sure exactly what its called and cant find it i can find the damage/hit files but not damage for when under water if you can help that would be amazing im trying to put a texture pack together
