Tutorial: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Custom Radio Stations
Things you'll need: A blank DVD, a DVD burner, Music Package the stuff in this archive, audio converter software (dbpoweramp, foobar2000, etc.) and Imgburn + optionally isobuster. I suggest testing the iso with Open PS2 Loader before you burn it. You can always run the iso straight off OPL smb network without having to burn it to dvd. Whateva floats yur boat
1.Open up isobuster and extract the contents of the disc onto your hard drive. Or, browse to the root of the disc and copy everything from there.
2.Extract the 7zip archive somewhere, and to that folder copy TRAKLKUP.DAT and the following .PAK files from where you extracted the game disc.
CH.PAK -> Playback FM
CO.PAK -> K-Rose
CR.PAK -> K-DST
DS.PAK -> Bounce FM
HC.PAK -> SF-UR
MH.PAK -> Los Santos Radio
MR.PAK -> Radio X
NJ.PAK -> CSR 103
RE.PAK -> K-JAH Radio West
RG.PAK -> Master Sounds 98.3
3.Into the mix with the .PAK files, copy .BAT files of the radio stations you wish to change, from "Radio station finisher batch" folder.
4.Now choose the station you want to edit, and open up that station's .BAT in notepad. See how many songs that station holds and close notepad. Now get your songs and convert them into 16Bit 44,1Khz stereo PCM WAV. After conversion rename them as song1.wav, song2.wav ... song11.wav and so on. If your are going to be doing more than one station use Bulk Utility Renamer to help rename the wav files. It can be easily be found by doing a google search.
5. Open Streams_PAK.exe, choose TRAKLKUP.DAT as the table file, and choose your radios station's PAK as the big file. Press extract lba and next press extract big file. Don't close the window but minimize it.
6.Now run the correct .BAT file for your station. For each song a pop up "Wait MFaudio to finish and press OK" will appear. Wait FMaudio to close and press ok. Repeat.
7.Now open Streams_PAK.exe again and press rebuild big file and then rebuild LBA.
8.Now you will have 2 files, NEW-XX.PAK and NEW-TRAKLKUP.DAT.
9.Remove the old ones and remove the NEW- from the filenames.
10.Now if you want to edit all the stations, do 5-9 again. Remember to delete the old TRAKLKUP.DAT every time! Or this soon to be irritading work will be for nothing...
11.Now that you have your new radiostation .PAKs and the renamed TRAKLKUP.DAT, go to the folder where you extracted your game, and replace the old stations and TRAKLKUP.DAT with the new ones.
12.Open up imgburn and choose Write files/folders to disc. On the lables tab, write SAN_ANDREAS into ISO9660 and UDF sections, and into System & application fields PLAYSTATION. Make sure the File system is ISO9660 + UDF 1.02 and use MODE1 if you can choose. The same rules apply if your going to build an image from files/folders to use with Open PS2 Loader.
13.Drag everything from the GTA folder into the list of files to be burned. Then click on the big burn button and follow along instructions.
(If you are using ESR, choose "Create image from files/folders", patch the image, and then burn)
