Car Radio

Addon to play music from the game or custom music while driving any vehicle.

* Fully working Car Radio for all cars and trucks in ArmA2
* All ArmA2 musictracks already included
* Add as many own musictracks as you wish
* Filteroptions InGame / own music
* Repeat Funtcion
* Random play
* 12-color display
* 7-color softkeys
* two designs
* Output Level depending on your soundcard / speakers

Copy the two folders @CLAY_CarRadio and userconfig to your ArmAII directory.
Add the startup parameter -mod=@CLAY_CarRadio to your ArmAII shortcut. (Or use an ArmAII Launcher of your choice!)

Check our FAQ for a clear explanation how to use modfolders.

Included files:

To make the Car Radio available in your own mission, place the 'Car Radio' Module (found under Modules (F7) > Car Radio) somewhere on your Map.
The Radio will be available in any car or truck on the map. Just board it any select 'Car Radio' from the action menu.

Refer to the included readme for detailed usage instructions!

An example mission (outdated?) showing you how to add your own music and how to add additional vehicle types can be found here:
- Demo mission
