The April Fools joke is that the villagers have taken over the skin servers and the content delivery networks. So all the skins have been changed to a random villager skin. And the new sounds in minecraft are from a sound pack made by the YouTuber Element Animation. Although I think that the sounds got removed becuase they do not work for me and I am using the default texture pack.
My ears are hypersensitive too. Happened after a fire alarm was triggered next to my face. I was already quite sensitive to sounds before that and is just became worse, I have to cover my ears when an ambulance or a police passes by with alarms on.
Pity the poor schmuck that buys and starts using Minecraft today. This obnoxious "joke" of all the inane sounds is enough to make many (if not most) people never want to play it again, especially since there is no in-game explanation that the sounds will go away tomorrow. (They will go away tomorrow, no?)
And so far, none of the directions I have seen for getting rid of the sounds and returning to normal work for me on my Mac. And many of the directions presume a level of knowledge about how to muck around in the files. If someone does come up with a way to correct it, could you please give the explanations in a user-friendly format?
I agree with the guy on the Mac. I'm using a mac and these fixes don't work. It's funny at first...i get it and can appreciate a practical joke just as well as the next guy but it kind of gets annoying after a while. C'mon Mac guys, help me out here
Oh no, you might have to avoid playing Minecraft for a WHOLE DAY in order to not get your precious sensibilities offended! How awful!
I'm so mad that Mojang decided to pull an April Fool's prank on April Fool's Day! I had so many great plans for today, and now they're all RUINED! Thanks a lot, Jeb! I can't believe I have to wait an entire DAY in order for things to go back to normal. Why didn't my parents teach me how to be patient!? Now I HAVE to post on Minecraft Forums to vent my bile because my entire life up until this point has been instant gratification and being treated with kid gloves to make sure that my precious feelings don't get hurt! You've just ruined Minecraft, Mojang!
You have no idea what others' lives are like. What makes you think you can judge them?
I worked a 14 hour day yesterday. I wanted to chill out with Minecraft for an hour before bed. Let me tell you something: my workday was plenty full of frustrations. Then I open Minecraft, and guess what, another frustration: this one was intentional. So I was upset. You got a problem with that, Mr. I-have-no-responsibility-in-life?
My son plays Minecraft on Tuesdays. He's 8. It's his one Minecraft day per week. So it's not one day, it's a week. And he's 8, so no, patience isn't his strong suit. He'll get over it, but again, why?
How am I supposed to play with sounds off? When I'm mining, I like to hear lava so I don't die. When I'm in a cavern, I like to hear monster effects. Sometimes sounds help me get my bearings.
Whatever YOU think about ME shouldn't matter. You don't know me. You don't know my son. You don't know how we play the game. And why should I or he or anyone else have to explain ourselves to anyone. All I want is to play the game I purchased. This simple desire does not make me a whiner, a jerk, or humorless.

"ItIsMe99", can I ask why you are insulting me for suggesting something? And Janthar, I apologize. I heard that in somewhere, theres a file that ends in af. If you take that out, then the sounds will be normal.
when I started playing at first I thought my game was messed up. It was frustrating. When i found out it was a joke and for today, I played a while and enjoyed hearing a lot of the different sounds. It's funny eating steak..."NO! NO! NO! NO!" Hahahahaha...I think everyone needs to take a breath, realize it's a joke, play around with it for a day and see if they can find some crazy sounds they put in there. If you can't fix it, enjoy it.
What are your favorite sounds so far? I lol'd at the steak eating thing...so good
