Euro Truck Simulator 2: Tip (adding online radio stations)

Open the C: \ Users \ xxxxx \ Documents \ Euro Truck Simulator 2 folder. This folder contains the live_streams.sii file. Open it in any text editor convenient for you (For example: Notepad, Notepad ++, WordPad). In this file you can add as many radio streams as you want, for this, follow these steps:
1. Copy the line stream_data []: “URL of mp3 live stream | My Radio” and paste it below stream_data: xx or a similar line if other radio streams are present in the file. If the live_streams.sii file is original, then just remove the “#” symbol in front of this line.
2. Replace the URL of mp3 live stream with the URL of the radio stream. Then replace My Radio with the name of the radio you want to see in the game.
Attention:
1. The numbers of radio streams must necessarily go in order (Example: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
2. The radio stream and the name of the radio itself must be separated by the “|”.
3. The line stream_data: xx must contain the correct number of streams. For example, if the number of streams is from 0 to 5, then the line will look like this stream_data: 6
3. After you have added the desired radio stream, save the file and close it. Start the game and open the Music menu. In the Internet Radio tab, you should see the radio stream that you just added to the file. Double click on the new radio stream and the radio will start playing.
Attention:
1. If the game freezes after you tried to enter the Music menu, open the live_streams.sii file and check if the streams are written correctly.
2. If you see question marks instead of radio names in the Internet Radio tab, then you need to change the text encoding to UTF-8 in the live_streams.sii file.
Changing the encoding:
In order to change the text encoding to UTF-8 in the live_streams.sii file you need:
Option A. Open the live_streams.sii file in standard Notepad. Click the File menu and select Save As. In the dialog box that opens, at the bottom, select the UTF-8 encoding, and click Save replacing the original.
Option B. Open live_streams.sii in Notepad ++. Click the Encodings menu and select Encode to UTF-8. Save the file and replace the original.

Example live_streams.sii file:
SiiNunit
{
live_stream_def: .live_streams {
stream_data: 2
stream_data []: “http://scfire-dtc-aa01.stream.aol.com:80/stream/1009|DI.FM – Lounge (96k)”
stream_data [1]: “http://scfire-dtc-aa01.stream.aol.com:80/stream/1035|DI.FM – Chillout (96k)”
}
}

This is how the radio streams look from the live_streams.sii sample file

Supported streams:
The game supports all MP3 streams (except MMS). With the proper codecs, which are often already installed on your computer, you will be able to listen to many more other radio streams.

Original file live_streams.sii
SiiNunit
{
#
# Stream data format: “URL of the live stream | Name for the radio as listed in Radio screen”
#
# !!! WARNING !!! mms streams are not supported!
#
# remove the leading ‘#’ character on the “stream_data []” line below and enter
# a correct URL of the stream to have the Internet radio offered in the Radio screen
# you can enter multiple lines in the same format, each defining additional radios
#

live_stream_def: .live_streams {

# Add your radio streams here!
# stream_data []: “URL of mp3 live stream | My Radio”

}
}
