Downloaded the mod, looked inside, great hard bass tracks present, 5 blins out of 5, but sound quality is 2 blins out of 5. Listened it in Windows, sound is so distorted it's unlistenable.

If you fix the sound problem, it would be best mod 5 blins out of 5.

The real problem is - it is either quality or volume. If I keep them high-quality (without any clipping, no amplification at all), they are barely audible in the game. On the other hand, if I amplify them so that they are well-audible, the quality suffers. I normalized every track so they all should be equally loud, however, as you can hear, each track is still mixed differently BY DEFAULT, their musical textures are different too - the quality just varies from track to track, so there's really not much I can do to completely fix it - trust me, I tried. Once I add some new tracks, I'll go through all of it again and try to improve it somehow. I cannot guarantee anything, though. This **** is a lot more laborious than I initially thought it would be.

Personally, I want the songs to be heard in the game instead of being very high quality. STALKER doesn't do justice anyway when it comes to keeping the quality intact.

Btw, they are NOT intended to be listened to in Windows, really. They are meant to work in the game as an addon. So how they sound outside of CoC is pretty much unimportant.

Compress instead of normalizing, if you have to.

You see in _appdata_\logs\xray.log it?

Yes. I have no idea what causes this but it doesn't break anything. Everything works in spite of the game complaining about something which seems not to be a problem at all.

If this manages to break your game in some way, then report it here. I haven't experienced any problems with the "Invalid ogg-comment file" log. It plays the track from the error log flawlessly anyway.
I've read a bit about it and it is rumored that these invalid ogg-comments might cause AI to behave strangely, like hearing you all the way across the map and reacting to stuff they shouldn't be reacting to BUT it was all said in the context of basic game sounds only, such as walking, shooting, picking up weapons and stuff like that. I really don't believe that radio music would cause the same kind of problem as it is JUST that - radio music. It has absolutely no in-game function apart from airing in the background.
Also, fixing this "issue" is 10 times more time-consuming than putting this whole mod together (requires installing 3rd party software and messing with each of the 39 oggs individually :v). The end result isn't worth the effort, I'd say, especially that it is questionable if this is a real problem in the first place.
However, if anyone here knows any quick-fixes or has a lot of spare time, go ahead and try. I'd prefer to focus on the quality/volume issue myself.

You should really consider taking the time to comment the ogg files. In addition to controlling how the AI react, the comments also specify the volume for the track and how quickly the sound drops off as you move away from the source. This is why you are getting spammed with error messages and why you are having trouble balancing the volume / quality.

Thanks for advice then! I also noticed that there are some more missing ogg comments within the basic game files, like bandit looting lines and this is what's worrying. Hopefully, 1.4 will fix it. As for now, I'll be adding more tracks and fixing the ogg comments.

6.09.2016 - UPDATED AGAIN! No new tracks this time. I've got some laying around so stay tuned for them until the next update! However, I got rid of the invalid ogg comment issue once and for all! These error lines won't plague your game log anymore :) A huge "THANK YOU!" to sinaps_nn for providing me with software I used to finally fix it! Thanks for your feedback and as always - report any problems to me!

Is there a way to make this louder and for the sound to go further?

Yep. But I would have to edit the .ogg comments manually for each track again. I increased their range and volume already compared to vanilla radios, so I don't feel like going over the top with it. If you want to do it, however, sinaps_nn posted a Yadisk link in his comment. You can download the software there and adjust the values to match your preferences.

Sure: delete the "xr_sound.ltx" file (gamedata\configs\plugins) and the radios will revert back to their vanilla playlist. You can also get rid of the .oggs, if you want to. In order to do this, just delete the "radio" folder (gamedata\sounds).

While using SAVandT is a perfectly viable solution for commenting oggs for stalker, I much prefer using the Call of Pripyat SDK to comment the sound files. Reasons for this are:
1. Quality - This is a value you can set (between 0 and 1) to increase the quality of how tracks sound, the only problem is that the file size increases exponentially over 0.8 or so. You also can't find this variable in SAVandT.
2. Attenuation Graph - the SDK allows you to see a little graph of how your min and max distances will play (for instance, a min distance of 5 and a max distance of 10 will mean once you go past 10 meters you won't hear anything, but if you are less than 10 then you suddenly hear something quite loudly.) This graph, more often than not, really helps in deciding whats a good min/max distance for each audio track.
3. Other small details - for instance, you can actually change multiple song's values all at one time with shift clicking and control clicking (helps a lot). It's also quite small compared to the CoC SDK (~700 MB to ~30 - 40 GBs)
You are welcome to PM me or leave a message on my profile if you want some more details or some advice on this area.

Hi man!
I'm working on a project "STALKER COC WAR IN UKRAINE MOD" and I want 2 radio playlists, one with Ukrainian songs, the other with Russian/Soviet songs. Would you like to make it please? I will be really grateful! For example let's say that bandits could be pro-Russian separatists and in their base they listen Russian and Soviet war songs. Freedom (or Duty...however..) will be Ukrainian soldiers and listen Ukrainian patriotic songs on radio in their base. Will you be able to do something like this? I will send you all songs for both playlists and you just convert them to .ogg files, make these playlists and upload here or send me the download link? Please answer! :)
