in my next 2 posts i will publish a list with all radio-related files.
but first i'll explain the structure and filenames a bit.

i'll use the "licensed"-folder files as the first example, and the "violin"-folder as second.
there are several kinds of files.
-one type is the "normal" and more "high quality". the files are named just like what they contain. e.g. "mus_inkspots_idont.mp3"
those are played on your Pip Boy 3000

-the second kind is the "low quality" version of the same track. it has an additional "_mono" in its filename just before the extension. e.g. "mus_inkspots_idont_mono.mp3"
those are played on the various radios you can find in the wasteland.

-the third kind is basicaly the same as the second one, but it's uncompressed and simply .wav files. e.g. "mus_inkspots_idont_mono.wav"
to be honest: i don't know when those are used. i cant tell if the radios use the mp3-files or the .wav-files.
maybe someone can play around a little with this and report back what's what.

sidenote: the "enclave"-folder only has the mp3 for the "high quality"-version and the wav for the "low quality" "_mono"-versions.
on the other hand, the "vault101"-folder has only "_mono"-versions in it, but both mp3 and wav. (i havn't discovered the radio-feature by the time i was inside vault 101 and i havn't tried to get back in, since i left)

there is another thing with the "violin"-folder.
in there are the "mus_violin_noodling_01_radio.mp3" folders with the counter going from "01" to "06". those contain the stuff the old lady says between the string-songs. the actual music-tracks named after what they are called and who composed them. (there are 3 pieces by Johan Sebastian Bach, 2 by Antonín Dvoøák and one by Pablo de Sarasate)
i think the game playes the noodling every other time. im not entirely sure on that one. also Agatha dedicates some tracks to some people. there is a dedication to her dead husband, one to Crazy Wolfgang, one for the Vault Dweller and one song her mother liked. i dont know if those are hardwired or random.
but i guess you should shuffle your tracks between the noodling and the string-tracks.

the moderations of Three Dog arn't in there. i don't know where they are exactly, but i think it wouldn't make much sense to replace those, since they are played accordingly to what you do in the wastelands.
on the other hand, you could create a nice radiostation that playes music of one kind if you play a good character, and a second kind if you play an evil character.
if someone want's to know, i can try to find those files.

enough blabla, here's the first part of the list:

everything looks allright.
if it doesn't work that way, i'm afraid we need to wait for someone to create a mod.
the only other way would be to manipulate the game-files themselfs. in this case the "Fallout - Sound.bsa" located in the Data-folder.
but i don't like tinkering with those original files.

right now im looking, if there is some config-file that tells fallout where to take the music from.
changing text in some file isn't as drastic as ripping gamefiles appart and reassembling then, praying they still work afterwards. =)



if you want to look at those files yourself, you can download and install the "Oblivion Mod Manager". the website is here: Link
you can open the ".bsa"-files from Fallout 3 with the "BSA Browser", but it will complain about the files having and unknown version number.
i think i read somewhere, that the fallout 3 files do have a different version number in their file-header and that you would need to change them with a hexeditor to edit them . . . or something like that. can't remember exaclty. ~=)
but you can use the BSA Viewer to view the files anyway and extract content of it.
i havn't tried to build a new .BSA-file, simply because im not that deep into modding games. =)
