Final Fantasy XV fans, here is a really interesting mod for you today. Modder ‘Lulech23’ has released a simple – but crucial – application for the game to completely customize your roadtrip audio experience.
According to its description, Radio Tuner allows PC gamers to listen to built-in tunes outside the game, export them to their own MP3s, or add their own music library into the game via file replacement.
The latest version of Radio Tuner comes with improved procedural header detection accuracy, experimental support for *.mab and OGG-based *.sab/*.mab files (not guaranteed to work in-game), support for unicode filenames, as well as improved export audio quality.
Before you can listen to any modified tracks, you must have unlocked them in-game. This can be achieved at many gas stations and other vendors throughout Eos who offer music albums for a small fee. Furthermore, the in-game audio length of a track is limited to the length of the one that it is being replaced. Therefore, if the replacement track is longer, it will be cut off.
Those interested can download the mod from here, and can follow these instructions in order to import, export and replace the in-game tracks!
Run FFXV Radio Tuner and wait for the application to load. Once it’s ready, import a *.sab file from your Final Fantasy XV’s …\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\FINAL FANTASY XV\datas\sound\resources\20000music\jp\ folder. This is where the Regalia’s music is stored (as opposed to regular game soundtrack).
Once the file has been imported, you can listen to it directly within Radio Tuner. Click the Play button on the left to begin, and click anywhere in the center status box to adjust volume.
Radio Tuner features the ability to export FFXV audio to a variety of more common formats, such as MP3, OGG, and WAV. Find a tune you really like? Add it to playlists of your own!
To add your own music to Final Fantasy XV, you’ll need to replace a built-in track. Once you’ve imported a track you have unlocked in the game, click Replace and navigate to the audio file you’d like to replace the in-game track with. Input audio files can be virtually any format, including MP3.
Once a file has been selected, a backup of the original will be made (with the extension *.orig) and your track will be converted to FFXV format in its place. To verify everything worked correctly, import the file again and have a listen!
