    Hello folks, I was wondering if its possible to decompile the game and change the music in the radio?
    Offtopic: I've decompiled some game data from a game called Homeworld 2 using gundam mod, and we (team) changed everything in the game on how everything looks, as well as the sounds. Would this be the same as doing it for the GTA?

    Yes it´s basically for every game the same.
    You need to reverse how they packed the files extract them and so on.

    So i only looked ROM.WAD and ROM.TOC and ROM.TOC is something like a table file for ROM.WAD (but i´m not sure how it works)

    @TwinBlade: This needs a self written unpacker i don´t think that they used a usual method to pack the files

    nIxx, would it be easy to put our custom songs? After we can decompile it?

    I don´t think that this will be easy the ROM.TOC is very confusing and even if we get the files extracted we have again other (possibly unknown) files.

    It really blows Rockstar only used MUSIC for the game. I was REALLY looking forward to people talking and things in between songs. Such as the talk shows. I LOVE those.

    But what can you do. It's a DS...

    Nope... none of the programs I've tried seem to work.
