Self-radio and Custom Events

Recommended Posts

I have been unable to find out the best way to use the police scanenrs in-game with my mod, Cariminal, and it bothered me that an important part would be missing. I have been doing some research with audio and thought I'd share what I know and the potential for its usage.

 

As you may know, we can have the ability to have radio playing regardless if we're in a car or not, and that includes police cars too. That set me on the road of cheaply having my self radio have a few audio tracks from previous GTAs. I thought I could do better than that so have done further research and discovered it can all be linked together.

 

Firstly, you need to enable radio:

AUDIO::SET_MOBILE_RADIO_ENABLED_DURING_GAMEPLAY(TRUE/FALSE)

Secondly, each station ID is gained going clockwise on the radio wheel from 0 to 17. That means self-radio has an ID of 17 and therefore we will now use that to target our music. 255 is turn radio off, typically with TRACKID of 1

STATIONID  = AUDIO.GET_PLAYER_RADIO_STATION_INDEX()STATIONNAME  = AUDIO.GET_RADIO_STATION_NAME(STATIONID)TRACKID  = AUDIO.GET_AUDIBLE_MUSIC_TRACK_TEXT_ID()

Using this information, we can then, using our choice for sequential playback and suitably naming our files to reflect that choice, we then enable methods for ourselves to callback each of our audio files for specific events within game. For example, if I target a player, I could call the "holy sh*t he's going to kill me" music track using this. TRACKID typically starts at 5100 and goes on for however many files you have.

if(STATIONID == 17){     AUDIO.SET_RADIO_TRACK(STATIONID, 5100) }

Which gives me some control over the audio system in-game and tie it to my scripts. I'm sorry if this is widely known, or if you know of a way to engage with the audio without editing via OpenIV please do let me know.

I don't think this is a good idea at all. What happens when someone who actually uses self-radio wants to play with your mod? All hell would break loose.

 

It's best to stick with an .ASI and a mod file.

I'm not paying them to sit around eating doughnuts listening to beyonce!

if AUDIO.GET_RADIO_STATION_NAME(17) ~= "RADIO_19_USER" then

-- RADIO_STATION_NAME(17) == "RADIO_05_TALK_01" | Self Radio Disabled --

Do Something :p
else
-- Self Radio Enabled --

Stop doing it
