Will we be able to put our own music into the game on a User-Created track type radio station that was in GTA IV PC?

Independence FM 2.0 anyone? ;)

This will be the first song I put in the game. I'll get the FULL GTA V experience when I hear this start playing (as it should have been...)

Will it return? Yes.

 

Will it have the same name? Probably (and hopefully!)

As far as I know all past PC versions had that option. It would be silly not to have it.

All PC gta's as old as III have had this option. No doubt V will.

Now see these is the way it should be phrased:

 

After all kindness R* has done by providing " "Excellent" " songs on its radio stations only " "10 or so were bad " " they will surely do these kindness of giving independence fm 3.0 after listening very good reviews about their radio stations from gta fans.

 

Just put double quotes into Negation and things would be perfect ..... D :r*:

They didn't mention it, which is odd as they did mention the video editor. If they don't add it, they should be bloody ashamed.

I do have a better version of independence FM which I made for IV and providing a scripthook is possible, would probably run without any changes on V. So if they don't add it, I will use that (which I have done for years on IV anyway, as it provides in game display of idtags and streaming media support).

Maybe they thought that it's obvious for us :) I'm pretty sure there will be a Independence FM

It would be quite odd if it wasn't included. I personally liked the Radio mode where you had ads and a host. It made it feel little bit like a radio channel. Of course that guy is always sarcastic about the music you listen, Rockstar style.

I hope it does return, and I also hope that MP3 player that everyone was talking about is released in current gen. Otherwise, it would only be accessible via a vehicle, which I don't think would be nice considering it would be a PC exclusive. So, basically:

 

Independence FM will return

MP3 player might be released as current gen exclusive

It would be a nice touch to keep that feature, but to me it makes no difference, I'll likely play the game with my music player running on the background with my own playlists, plus the stations from Vice City and San Andreas and some compilations like 2 Many Dj's and so on. In game i'll consider it my iFruit™ portable player.

Hopefully Rockstar would put a DJ for the station and talks about how crappy your songs are.

It'll be a definite addition. I don't even think we can doubt this one. All GTA Games in 3D era have the ability to add independent tracks be it MP3 or any other User Tracks. I hope the feature will be like San Andreas or GTA IV.

Let's hope that it goes without saying, which is why they didn't mention it in the Newswire post.

 

Or they just forgot, lol.

You have a better version of Independence FM? I'd actually like to try the scripthook out; I just got GTA IV back on my PC soon to get Episodes from LC.

 

 

Oh and nobody should be worried, Independence IS going to come back to V. Why they wouldn't would be a mystery.

Yes, I made the mod several years ago. You need to tell the mod where your music is located (can be a folder that points to a location or share where the actual music files are), it supports several audio formats (MP3, wma, wav and a few others) it will read idtags from wma and MP3 files so that artist, album and song information can be displayed in game using a small menu and it supports streaming radio (like shoutcast or mms streams) and it allows for full control like next/previous, pause, fast forward/backward.

Sorry if this isn't appropriate not trying to push this.

That really sounds awesome! I got my GTA IV reinstalled so I'm gonna give your mod a go.

 

Edit: Wow I love this so far. It was a bit tricky figuring it out at first because I had trouble getting the songs to work, but I figured it out when I saw the instructions a little further. Thanks for the link.

I'm white and this radio station made me 100% black every time I listened to it. Very f*cking good.

I like some of the music in V, but it gets boring fast.

Having the option to listen to my own music like Deathcore while on a high speed police chase down the highway as Trevor is going to be an experience to truly remember

Yeah, V's stations are pretty repetitive. Or they just feel more repetitive than past games.  

 

I should listen to more Nonstop Pop FM as Trevor. Haven't met a person on any of my rampages that isn't intimidated by Fergie blasting at 100% volume.

If this feature was in 4 which was a lackluster port, then I think it's safe to assume it will be in 5 as it is generally known that Rockstar did 5 PC right this time!

 

Gonna be awesome guys!!
