The game supports 2 build-in radio modes: Playback of local MP3s on your PC, or streaming radio from the Internet.
Place MP3s in My Documents\Euro Truck Simulator 2\music. Subfolders are fine, but the game will just list all the MP3s without folder info.
To avoid duplicating all your MP3s into this folder from their usual location, you can use an NTFS Junction Point to 'link' your main music folder to the game's music folder, like this:
C:\>mklink /J "%userprofile%\Documents\Euro Truck Simulator 2\music\stuff" "%userprofile%\Music"
A folder/link will appear under the \music\ folder, which when selected takes you to your main music folder. The game then reads all files in that location as if they were in \music\.
You can also add a folder shortcut in the folder by opening "Documents\Euro Truck Simulator 2\music".
Then followed by "Right-Clicking" Go to "New" Then "Shortcut" Then "Browse" to main music folder.
Custom Streaming RadioEdit
The game supports streaming radio stations in http/mp3 and mms formats. You can manually add internet radio streams to the game by adding the stream URL to a config file. To do this:
- Load ETS2 at least once, and navigate to Radio -> Streaming -> Update From Internet
- Open My Documents\Euro Truck Simulator 2\live_streams.sii in Notepad
- Scroll to the bottom of the list and add in new stations in the same format as the ones above
- Make sure the stream numbers are unique for each line (stream_data[XX], where as XX are suppose to be unique sequential/following numbers for every station. i.e. 1,2,3,4...,70,71,72)
Note: You can overwrite pre-existing streams with your own custom ones, then use 'Update From Internet' within the game without overwriting your custom streams.
