[GTA 5/EFLC/GTA4] Is there a way to rip radio station songs WITH the host lines embedded in them (like you can with San Andreas)?



  • I'm currently ripping all my favorite radio stations from the game files to listen to them irl and ofc not only songs but also all the DJ lines and ads to recreate the exact same radio station experience as ingame.

    San Andreas was easy because there's a tool which rips the songs with the DJ lines embedded into them but for GTA 4, EFLC and GTA 5 there doesn't seem to be anything similar.

    "Why don't you just download from Youtube etc?" you might ask but they're all either without lines, missing songs or low quality. That's the reason why I rip them directly from the game files.

    So is there any possibility to rip the station files WITH the DJ lines embedded into them?



  • Ripping this from the game is a violation of the rights of the producer. There is some radios from Rockstar games on spotify, and maybe other place for a small payment.
    Its better to support Rockstar financially so they can make more games that we all love.

    @xxx78 Buying the radio included in GTA V does not support Rockstar Games, since AFAIK none of them are made by Rockstar Games. Buying the music would support the creators and publishers of the music instead.



  • @xxx78 you say that like they don't already earn a shit ton from sharkcards

    You are probably right, and since I like the radio channels and the music, I find a way to pay for it.

    And that's great. If I love something like GTA 5 I like that the creators get as much money as possible to motivate them to make more of what I love. By paying and promoting things I love, I give those values a chance to grow and to be there for me in the future. Anyway Im just not a big fan of people that just take something because they want it, when other people have spent their resources and time to make it.



  • @xxx78 annoying thing is though they're milking it out to make as much money as they can and then when it starts to die they'll announce gta 6

    hehe I see your point and you are probably right...and I guess that's the way they do it many places...



  • @xxx78 No offense but I was asking for solutions, not moral judgement. I most likely own more Vinyls and CDs than the average GTA player and I also legally own quite few songs that are in the game. You're probably right about the violation but it's not like I pirated the game and try to rip the songs to spread them all over the internet (and let's not pretend like mods with real models and brands from other licensed games are not a violation). I bought the game legally and I merely wanted to have the whole radio station experience (with jingles, DJ lines and ads - so Spotify disqualifies for this purpose) for real life activities. There are definitely easier ways to steal music than ripping them from a game and I don't see in any way how I am harming Rockstar with this (as for the artists - GTA was always a good source for finding new music to me so I often ended up buying it because of GTA). If they offered to buy whole radio stations with all the extras I'd be the first in line, it would actually save me a lot of time.



  • @Solid-Snake GTA IV, ELC, TBOGT and GTA V uses procedural radio stations, the DJ lines and songs not are a sequence inside a file like in San Andreas, are generated randomly by internal game script (hardcoded so can't be called to play a radio station out of game and get the radio station audio line).

    A non native radio station mod is the only way similar as you want, but nobody will to invest that level of time listing all DJ lines and song files in game files to create a script procedural to take them and mix to sounds like native radio stations. Your best bet is go to any place where not exist enviroment audio FX like inside apartments, and with trainers start the on foot Radio Station playback to record it with any tool in your PC.



  • @Solid-Snake Maybe I overreacted, if I did I'm sorry about that, its just that many people on this site write about having cracked games and I reacted to the word "ripping". It annoy me that people just take things because they want it without a thought for the people that made it and own the rights to it.



  • @MetaGTA

    Yeah I assumed it was different than San Andreas but was still hoping for some handy tool. Nevertheless, as a no-lifer I took me "some" time and did the whole Liberty Rock Radio from EFLC and overdubbed the lines into the songs with Audacity. It's not perfect but very close to as you hear it ingame. Extremely time-consuming but still worth it imo. Appreciate your response though!



  • @xxx78 No hard feelings, I overdid it a bit too :)



  • @Solid-Snake I've found a site that hosts all the ripped radio stations but I'm not sure I can post the link here as it's prolly against tha rules...



  • @krissboo Is it by any chance the reddit post "Grand Theft Auto: The Radio Stations!!"? If so there are no DJ lines during songs unfortunately. If not you can send me the link via mail to sandrod@gmx.net but I already started doing the whole job myself "the hard way" so I'm gonna tag this as solved. Thanks for the response!



  • @Solid-Snake I sent you a message anyways dude.
