Nice find, alot of people will be happy.

EDIT: Ok, that just takes the f*cking piss. You cant use ripped or downlaoded music. Only CDs. Im sorry, but I only own about 5 real CDs. Somebody better hack this soon so you can convert any music.

I just thought, if this is a program, then that means no patch for the UK release. Looks like we will just be getting the same as the US copy then.

Well sh*t can't you just burn your MP3's to an Audio CD (I already do anyway) and then use that to get them in "purchased CD format" to load up? Kind of redundant but seems like it should work..

I was thinking that, when you burn MP3's to a CD don't they go wma when you rip them back of the CD. All you need are some blank CD's and a CD writer..

Homemade CD's don't work, just tryed it out, only liscensed legal CD's work

that kinda sucks that you can't use downloaded tracks. on the plus side, my sister has over 100 rock CDs, so its all good for me at least.


EDIT: i just took one of the music files in .gta format, and renamed it to .AC3, and it plays in my player

maybe encode to AC3 format, rename to .gta, and put it in folders that resemble the folders the GTA program makes?

Argh! Thats not fair for me. All my perfecly legal shop brought vinyl is useless. Damn it! Looks like I will have to wait and see if a hacked version or another program will be made.

It looks like the tracks that this program makes are 66kbps compressed wav files. Take one and rename the extension to wav and you can listen to it in Media player or winamp. Now to just find out if LCS is picky about the encoding.

EDIT: Ooops, didn't realize that ATRAC3 was a RIFF/WAV file. :-/

Oh rite thanks, i'll try that then when i get the game on Friday. I've downloded the real Lazlow show,(the new york show) and i'm putting it on there, then it will be a lazlow fest of GTA. Plus, if you own GTA3 for the PC, why not take some of those files and put them into LCS, interesting no?

When you want to listen to your tracks you have to turn off the radio, right? Wont this help speed up the game and stop any stutters when loading radio stations (I dont know how much of a problem this is as I have only herd about it)?

you would think your theory is correct but no it still stutters because of having to load the saved music.

Hmmm, yeah, you would have thought it wouldnt take as long to load the tracks from the stick than the disk. Nevermind.

...just realized this as I loaded music. Now I get to waste TWICE the amount of space. One song in mp3 format to play normally on the psp. And one in rmj format for GTA....Big mistake on the part of Rockstar...

I've read somewhere that you can use the software that enables TOCA 2 to play custom soundtracks (which allows MP3s to be converted). You would have to move the files to the appropriate GTA folder and rename the *.toc files into *.gta files.

yeah it does sound like rockstar are being a bit fussy. It would of been so much easier and more practical just to allow mp3s on the memory card. Hopefully by the time i get a PSP and LCS it will be sorted somehow

By the way, the download is also on the official Liberty City Stories web site. Just go to "Downloads" and it should be there along with a PDF guide.

I burned music to a rewritable cd, and then I could still convert these songs to the LCS Custom Soundtrack, but it was going really slow (more than 1 hour to convert 1 song)..............can't I normally? (The music I got, I didn't bought it, or bought the cd, or an album, I just burned it with a mix of different music, the music I downloaded were not a music that you can buy at the store nor a music I made.........)

Yea I'm not too sure of the trouble you cats are having with burned CD's. I burned an audio CD of MP3's that I downloaded and put it in and it encoded them just fine. Wasn't slow either.. Now keep in mind this was an entire Cd of the same artist. I am wondering if it has trouble reading mixed cd's since you wouldn't normally find many "boughten" mixed CD's (even though they are out there like soundtracks to movies.)

err, burnt cds worked for me.. it was the same playlist as the album tho, so maybe they just check to see if it matches the data, and times and whatnot. im guessing if you just make a mixed cd and try to rip it, it wont work. either that or it could just be the cdr's i use. which would suck.
