Tutorial: Enabling Custom Tracks

Recommended Posts

TheDude5000

Custom tracks in VC Stories work very similar to LCS.

 

Here we go:

 

 

 

Find your VC Stories save folder on your mem stick. Usually, it is named ULUS10160S92F0.

Now, you're going to create a new folder, and name it ULUS10160CUSTOMTRACKS.

There are two ways to get your music into the proper format(.gta) so you can listen to it in VC Stories.

 

CD's-

Download R* Custom Tracks(if you don't have it already) at http://www.rockstargames.com/libertycitystories/gta_lcs.html

Install it, and insert the CD with the music you want in VC Stories.

Convert your tracks, save them to the desktop. Insert these new files (.gta files) into the ULUS10160CUSTOMTRACKS folder.

 

PC Music Files-

Download Exact Audio Copy PSP Edition from http://www.megaupload.com/?d=46HIYRIQ

or here(you have to register first).Install the app, and drag your music files onto the client.

It will convert them to .toc format. Now, make sure Window's allows you to see file extensions. If it doesn't, go to Tools>Folder Options>View Tab> and uncheck the box next to "Hide extensions for known file types". Now, click the .toc file that EAC created for you, and change the extension from .toc to .gta. Insert all your converted files into the ULUS10160CUSTOMTRACKS folder.

 

Either way you choose to do it, your ULUS10160CUSTOMTRACKS folder should look something like this:

Note: Your file icons will vary, most of them will be the default "Windows Unknown File Format" icon.

 

Now, run VC Stories. When you load your game, pause. Go to audio options, and change the Custom Tracks option from OFF to ON.

 

Well, that's how you do it folks. Enjoy.

Nice guide, but since a lot of people's folder will be different, it might be a good idea to explain that you take out the S92F0 at the end of it and put it CUSTOMTRACKS. That could loose a lot of people. icon14.gif good job though, it's the exact same as LCS, but hey, I didn't know how.

cool, thanks! but can you use mp3 songs with one of the programs? i mean, so you don't have to buy a cd with the songs? if not, maybe someone should make a ''homebrew'' rockstar custom tracks....(that do not need cd's)

You don't need a CD... With Exact Audio Copy you just drag your MP3s onto the conversion screen, and it converts them..

I can't get EAC to work. I drag my MP3's to the client and it gives me a series of errors then EAC closes. Anyone else experience this problem?

Its not working for me. I have converted and put them into the right folder, and they come up in Custom Tracks but they are silent then.

I have a problem with doing this. I upload my songs and when i go to enable them it says its unavailable. And under saved data on my card, it says its corrupt data. I have tried re-installing RCT and it still does not work. Whats the deal?

The client should recognize your PSP. If not, it's a problem with your PC or PSP, not the client.

it works fine for me, but don't you all wonder why you can't convert the tracks with R* CT and place them directly in the VCS custom tracks folder? I mean, it's called Rockstar Custom Tracks. not LCS Custom Tracks. wasn't it meant to work with other R* PSP titles as well?

What are you talking about? Does the converter automatically try to save them in the LCS Custom Tracks folder or something? If so, just move them to the VC Stories folder.

plunkett, you're not the only person having problems with getting this to work. My PSP is hooked up and in USB mode, my computer recognizes that it's there but not the program. It pisses me off to the Nth degree!

 

Why can't they just read music off of your music folder on your PSP? suicidal.gif
