IV Song Removal Due to Licenses expiring.


edups

Recommended Posts

btw it's not entirely rockstar's fault, it's the labels being dicks and giving licenses for 10 years

Then they shouldn't have licensed from them no matter how much they wanted those on GTA 4.

Was it just not possible to renew the licenses for the songs? Why pay for new song licenses?

Because f*ck you that's why! - Rockstar

I can't believe it how Rockstar Games doesn't even mention something on their website, they completely ignore the 10th anniversary of GTA IV.

They completelly ignored the 20th anniversary of GTA 1, they won't do sh*t for other GTAs.

 

They celebrated 10 years of GTA with Table Tennis on Wii.

 

To be fair, GTA 4 supposed to come instead but got delayed.

If GTA IV were on gog, none of this would matter. But R* made it clear on their eula that they don't want you to own something you paid for, they just rent you their games, and thus they have every right to change the content in any way they want. Here's a quote from https://www.rockstargames.com/eula

Hearing 1979 on a foggy night for the first time was really cool. And so many other great tracks that fit the atmosphere. First time players in the future (thats if rockstar doesnt completely disown the game) will have completely separate experiences in that regard. Try imagining watching Goodfellas years from now and the Layla Piano Exit scene is replaced with some other song. How stupid.

Untested downgrader (since my IV is broken, it black screened after logos even before update)

Over writes the updated gxts and dat files with the old one, binary patches the radio RPFs to old one. Doesnt touch the paul.dll (launcher?), since it should do much difference.

Just extract to your IV folder and run intall.bat

 

Please any feedback.

 

Finally got all GTAs to work, and checked the radio myself. It just works :D

IV radio "downgrader"

EFLC radio "downgrader"

 

Just unpack to your IV or EFLC root directory and run the install.bat, wait till the command line disappears and play!

TBH I think the new Vladivostok FM is p lit. It's what they should've had in TBOGT instead of that eurodance sh*t (not saying it's bad but it should've been it's own station imo). I'm just curious if Ruslana is still the host or if they made it someone else

In 10 years they'll remove the rest of the music.

So basically in 2028 we'll be only able to use Independence FM! :lol:

 

hell,pc'd be the only platform with any radio station/s.

Alright, downgrading without any third-party downloads should be pretty simple due to Steam depots.

 

To downgrade, make note of the location for Steam.exe

 

Then, paste "steam://nav/console" into your browser. This will open the Steam console.

 

To downgrade GTA IV, paste: download_depot 12210 12211 4406763129603688303

To downgrade EFLC, paste: download_depot 12220 12221 9113424693229214791

 

Then, the content of the previous patch will be in the folders here:

steamapps/content/app_12210/app_12210 (GTA IV)

steamapps/content/app_12220/app_12221 (EFLC)

According to folks who have their GTA IV update, Ruslana is still the DJ.

Okay, someone has to make now a patch that combines the new Vladivostok songs with the old ones. :)

Someone would need to reverse and document the .DATXX format first.

So many good songs gone :( I have both GTA IV & EFLC on disc(PS3) so I will definitely not update them whenever it shows up. Does the update applies to disc and digital? I did put in my GTA IV disc and nothing popped up.

Not my video: All rights goes to youtuber Gravarty

funfact: new songs in vladivostok are using hex codes, just like in gta 5

They just don't have a name that OpenIV recognizes (they're all encoded/encrypted/whatever). The songs do have actual names:

 

ADD_SPEED└── ADD_SPEED_LEFT└── ADD_SPEED_RIGHTBEGO_RANCHO_SONG           //this isn't a typo└── BEGU_RANCHO_SONG_LEFT└── BEGU_RANCHO_SONG_RIGHTCHIKI└── CHIKI_LEFT└── CHIKI_RIGHTHOT_SUMMER└── HOT_SUMMER_LEFT└── HOT_SUMMER_RIGHTKARAOKE└── KARAOKE_LEFT└── KARAOKE_RIGHTMON_AMI└── MON_AMI_LEFT└── MON_AMI_RIGHTNOCHJU└── NOCHJU_LEFT└── NOCHJU_RIGHTPLAY└── PLAY_LEFT└── PLAY_RIGHTREPREZENTY└── REPREZENTY_LEFT└── REPREZENTY_RIGHTRIFFMASTER_TONY└── RIFFMASTER_TONY_LEFT└── RIFFMASTER_TONY_RIGHTUNDERGROUND└── UNDERGROUND_LEFT└── UNDERGROUND_RIGHT
The ones with "_left" and "_right" go into AudioTracks.txt, ones without go into strings/archives/RPF3/radio_vladivostok.rpf.txt if anybody wants to have a complete list of names or something.

That's why I commented on that matter, it indeed does have to be cracked.

I think I just legitimately heard Not the American Average by Asking Alexandria on LCHC. Oh boy. I swear I heard the heavy growls at the end.

 

-niptuck-

No you didn't. I know Rockstar are complete morons, but they're not going to add songs that has nothing to do with the station's genre. In fact, I don't think they replaced the three LCHC songs with anything. Like I said, complete morons.
