Removing radio and excess sounds

  • Is it possible to delete sounds in GTA5: radio, pedestrians, wind and much more, to reduce the size of the folder itself.
    Previously, we did this in SAMP, and from 4 gigabytes the folder turned into 1.3 gigabytes.


  • @es3rvake
    Yeah, it's possible :thumbsup:

    Basic Process:

    Use OpenIV to access (just about all of) the audio files here:

    ...\Grand Theft Auto V\mods\x64\audio\sfx

    In the '.rpf' files ('RESIDENT.rpf' etc) are '.awc' audio container files & in them are the audio files themselves.

    Right-click the '.awc' > 'Export to openformats (.oac)' to extract them to an editable format ('.oac' file & folder with some '.wav's in it).
    Edit the '.wav' files in the folder that appears & then drag the '.oac' back into original '.awc' location using OpenIV to install. :thumbsup:

  • @a63nt-5m1th Tell me, do I need to upload "WAV" back?
    Or can I also "wma" ?

  • @es3rvake
    I'm pretty sure it needs to be 16-bit PCM .wav's.

    You can easily use Audacity or such like to convert the files you have. In Audacity export audio as 'WAV (Microsoft) signed 16bit PCM' & they will definitely work :thumbsup:

    Note: Most GTA V audio files (if not all of them) are Mono files. No need to convert/export them to/as Stereo.

  • @a63nt-5m1th I’m wondering if I really became interested in this issue and implementation.
    After all, the game weighs 90GB. Something tells me that someone has already done it.

    @es3rvake So you can put the game on a disc and do what exactly?
    people on internet confuse me still

    (and real life people actually...)

  • I'm going to move some audio to usb drive, replacing it to symlinks.
    Somebody knows what is other files (starting from s)? e.g.:

  • Banned

    @eddddddy I have removed and edited a good portion of sounds you hear when driving.


    Everything else can easily just be removed from the sound file. I have an empty file that removes people yelling at you as you drive by. Following the same format, the audio size can be significantly reduced.
