Is it possible to change the chat notification sound?

Not change it, but it IS possible to disable it. Look under "Session-specific settings" (which, as of BGE v1.7, can be made a permanent setting).

Oh well. I want a notification sound, but I find the current one a bit over the top. I would prefer a simple "ping" sound for notification of chat messages. The current sound is good for the bell to get the attention of the other player, but it gets annoying quickly when it plays for every message.

The Lobby used to have a nicer, subtler sound. Perhaps I can swap that in instead.

Actually, now that I've worked with BGE a bit more and used it to play actual networked games, the chat sound is fine. My original issue was that I was testing with both host and client on the same machine and it didn't occur to me that I was hearing two overlapping notifications for each message.

When running more than one client on a single computer, I suggest you disable the Chat sounds on all but one of the clients.
