About this mod

A radio station chock full of western songs that are ideal for those treks across the Mojave. Now features a cowboy voice actor. There's 40 songs in total from the 50s and 60s.

Permissions and credits
2022 Update: Voice acting! A huge thanks to BixbeVoice for his vocal contribution to this project. This was a daunting venture, but once things got underway, it became quite fun to figure out how to make it all work. We hope that the cowboy character will enrich your travels across the Mojave and beyond. Thank you, and enjoy.

1-Year Anniversary Message: And another big thanks thanks to everyone that has endorsed/downloaded my mod(s) and left some great comments. As of right now about 6,400 people have downloaded the radio, which is astounding to me. I was hoping for around 500 downloads over the course of a year, but 6,400?? Woah. I'm real pleased that this mod became such a big hit in a short amount of time. And of course, I couldn't have done it without Bixbe, who came through with a solid performance and helped make this project leagues better. I also couldn't have done it without the GECK Extender, so another big thank you is in order for RoyBatterian and anyone else who worked on it.

April 2024 Update: Major technical overhaul. For the main version, I rearranged the playlist structure (song/voice line repetition now rarely occurs), added a new script and set conditions for each audio entry (which helps the game keep track of what's been played), and made the louder/quieter songs less loud/quiet. Due to the way the playlists need to chain together, I couldn't just make it fully random (although I tried), but I think you guys will be real satisfied with the way it turned out.

As for the songs-only version, I added a separate new script so that it now cycles through every song without repeating. If you'd prefer to hold onto the 2.0 version, then be sure to back up your current "Songs Only.esp" before downloading 3.0. I'll leave up the old version in case you decide/need to revert back.

Anyway, thank y'all for reading and thank y'all for checking out the station. Two years later and I still can't believe how well-received this mod is. Happy listening out there in the wasteland.


Original Description:

Howdy, partners. I made this station a couple years ago for a specific playthrough, and I figured that I should share it here with y'all. Cowboy Radio contains 40 songs in total, mainly featuring guys like Marty Robbins, The Shadows, and Chet Atkins. There's guitar twang, there's storytelling, there's plain ol' instrumentals. There's slow songs, fast songs, nail-biting songs, bluesy songs, classic songs. A little bit of everything for the wasteland outlaw.

Here's a few exemplary songs from the station to whet your whistle with...




How to Install

Simply download the files with any mod manager, or if you prefer the manual way, then drop Cowboy Radio into your game's main directory. Just make sure that you have only one .esp active at a time. This particular mod comes with two plugin files, "Now With Voice Acting" and "Songs Only." Only one can be active at a time, having both on at once results in nothing playing at all.

Possible Radio Stutter Fixes for You

Sometimes when going into menus or into houses/new areas, your currently active radio station will skip like a broken record. I recently stumbled across a few possible fixes, all contained within this Steam thread from 8 years ago: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=214406855

First, I'll mention the fix that worked for me, which is the simplest: Change your default .mp3 or .ogg player to Windows Media Player (if you don't have it, then download the codecs online). To do so, right click any random audio file containing either of the file extensions, then right click > properties > change what it opens with. According to Slownick (from the Steam thread), the wrong codecs will cause your audio tracks to stutter.

The next fix requires you to edit a line within the .ini files, specifically iRadioUpdateInterval=250. Two of the .ini files (Fallout.ini and FalloutPrefs.ini) will be located in your documents/my games/fallout nv folder, and the other (Fallout_default.ini) will be where FalloutNV.exe is located (main install directory). Make sure that Read-only is unticked for the 3 .ini files, then edit the 250 value to 1024. Save them, re-tick Read-only, and test it out.

The last possible fix is as follows: Find a line within the .ini files called "bUseThreadedAI" and set 0 to 1. Then create a new line of code that says "iNumHWThreads=2." Same as above, save and test it out.

And just as an extra mention, someone claimed that deleting a bunch of their old saves fixed the stuttering. Haven't had the chance to test this myself, but it's worth a shot if nothing else is working for you and you're up to your eyeballs in save files.

That about does it for the description. Hope you enjoy the station. If any of the audio levels are off, let me know and I'll fix it right up.
