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.
Yeah, it's possible
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.
@a63nt-5m1th Tell me, do I need to upload "WAV" back?
Or can I also "wma" ?
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
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.
Radios, CUTSCENE_MASTERED_ONLY.rpf, INTERACTIVE_MUSIC.rpf.
Somebody knows what is other files (starting from s)? e.g.:
@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.
i play online also.
