MP3PLAYER Won't Work

Recommended Posts

Delmothos

So I bought this game recently in the Steam Summer Sales and loaded the mp3 folder full of songs from an 80s compilation disc I have (to fit the games theme), but the game doesn't play them. When I switch to MP3PLAYER, it just stays silent. I've tried shortening the MP3 names but that didn't work. I've googled this but haven't found any solutions that worked for me. Can anyone here tell me if they know how to fix the issue?

Hmm, let's see. Well, first make sure that it's an .mp3 file or it won't work. Besides, are you sure you've placed the file in the correct directory? Go to your main Vice City directory (the folder with all game files and the launcher) and look for a folder called "mp3" and open it. Now simply drag (or copy - paste / cut - paste) the MP3 file from location you have it in the mp3 folder from Vice City. That's all. Now go in the game, get in a vehicle (not police car / ambulance / etc) and scroll up the mouse wheel until you get to the channel "MP3 Player" and stop there. Better do it slower because once you got past it you can't go back, since the radio station switching can only be done one way.

In case you happen to not hear anything, or to hear very difficulty because of the noise from the game, go to the main menu, then Options and at Audio Setup you'll find 3 options of audio settings. Turn the Music Volume & MP3 Volume Boost louder and the SFX Volume lower.

I think miromiro is confused on that, it MUST be an .MP3 file OR it will not work...Use Shortcuts to the songs works best-from experience...

 

Also, Make sure the song files ARE NOT Protected media, as they will not work, since the game has no way of accessing the license files needed to play them..This means NO downloads from download stores, such as I-Tunes, Wal-Mart MP3 store, Amazon downloads, Napster, Rhapsody, etc. from BEFORE Feb. 2009, as that is when the Downloads stores started the switch over to the un-protected .MP3 formats...

 

Also, AFTER putting the songs in the MP3 folder in the Install directory, you have to go into the in-game options and stroll through the Radiostations until you get to the MP3 Player(it's after WZLB-Wave 103 on the dial)...to get the game to recognize the tracks..

 

For III AND VC, the game ONLY works with .MP3 files....

 

Chances are, IF you are adding music from a CD, chances are it is the wrong format, as when you RIP a CD to computer, it tends to put them in .wma format(WMP)/.AAC(I-Tunes and Rhapsody)(at least it does for me anyway)...

 

Also, though as common sense as it is, make sure the volume on the PC is up and NOT Muted...

I know, I was just astounded at that mistake.

I've used shortcuts that are linked to definite MP3 files. They're from a CD and aren't encrypted. Nothing happens. On San Andreas, where I've managed to get it working there is a feature to scan the tracks but there is no such feature on Vice City.

The way you get them to be recognized in VC, is to go into the in-game options and stroll through the radiostations in the pause menu until you get to the MP3 station(as I said above)-you must have missed that? confused.gif

Check your music quality, it can't be 320 kb/s. Sadly Vice City can't play high quality songs.
