[Guide] How to extract radio station musics from Saints Row The Third

  1. Ripping contents out of original game installation may or may not be legal in your country. Do it at your own risk.
  2. The result music files are for personal use only. DO NOT publicly distribute or circumvent the music files.
  3. Tools linked in this guide are done by 3rd party author. I give no warranty nor guarantee on the usage of the tools. Use them at your own risk.

Before you start

You must have a copy of Saints Row The Third installed in your hard drive (or a copy of the needed game file).

Basic command prompt knowledge is required.

The end results are 96kbps audio files. These music are the exact rip from the game itself, but since the musics are played as a background music in-game, you might not notice the bad music quality in-game. If you are expecting quality music, then you might be disappointed.

Tools needed:

This tool from Rick’s Game stuff (Download the latest build)
(mirror/version used in this guide)

This tool from ToadKing
(mirror/version used in this guide)

ww2ogg tool from here (Download “ww2ogg”)
(mirror/version used in this guide)


  1. Find and copy the sounds_common.vpp_pc file to a working folder on your PC that’s easy to access (in this guide, I’ll be putting all the files on my desktop). It resides in <steam installation folder>\steamapps\common\Saints Row the Third\packfiles\pc\cache\sounds_common.vpp_pc (around 600MB+).

    These are all the required files.

  2. Unpack the .zip tools.

    • For, all you need is bnk_pc_extractor.exe.
    • For, all you need is the bin_sr3 folder.
    • For, all you need is the ww2ogg.exe.

  3. Open up command prompt, navigate to the bin_sr3 folder, and run this command:> Gibbed.SaintsRow3.UnpackVPP.exe ../sounds_common.vpp_pc

    Once this is done, you should have a new folder appeared in bin_sr3 folder. Move that folder to up one directory. Your original directory should look like this.

    Inside the sounds_common folder should have a lot of .bnk_pc files.

  4. The radio station musics are in the radio_<station>_media.bnk_pc files. I will extract one of the stations in this guide, just repeat for the rest.

    In the command prompt, navigate to the folder for the bnk_pc_extractor.exe, and run this command:> bnk_pc_extractor.exe sound_common/radio_klassic_media.bnk_pc

    You should get a lot of .wav files in the sounds_common folder.

    Repeat this step for all the radio_<station>_media.bnk_pc files.

  5. These .wav files are compress files. You will need to uncompress them into codec-readable format. In command prompt, use this command:> ww2ogg.exe sounds_common/radio_klassic_media_00000.wav

    Once that is done, you will find radio_klassic_media_00000.ogg in the same folder as the radio_klassic_media_00000.wav file.

    Repeat this step for all the radio_<station>_media_<number>.wav files.

  6. (Optional) If you got the right codec installed in your system, you can play the .ogg file directly. If you wish to copy into an MP3 player or your phone, use something to convert the .ogg files into MP3. I recommend using Format Factory to do it.

Distant Worlds – Music from Final Fantasy

Finally!!! It’s here!!!

On Aug 16, I bought a ticket and went for their concert. They are the Distant Worlds! Kinda like a Square Enix official orchestra band that plays Final Fantasy music. This is one of the rare chance they visit Malaysia! So I went ahead to buy their ticket immediately when I heard of the news. (Thanks for the share in Facebook! hehe)

Sadly, I only managed to buy their CD1. CD2 has sold out, both days.

Last resort, I Whatsapp my boss to see if he can purchase their CD2 for me from Amazon. He often buy stuff from Amazon, so I can tap only his shipping. And… after weeks and weeks of waiting, finally it arrived!

Distant Worlds Official Website

You can stream their awesome music here (Or buy digital downloads)

Or buy from Amazon

Abujaba – JB gathering

Why is this topic called “Abujaba”?
Because this.

We are COMPUTER SCIENTISTS!!! We use technology to communicate!
Technology like nose blocking Skype, and word messing Google Drive!

Nijyumaru is a place that my family always go when we want to have Japanese food. It is one of the best Japanese restaurant that I know of. Although a bit pricey, they still fall within the reasonable range. But the food there are fresh and tasty, they have quick and quality service too!

Only downside is, you gotta make a reservation before you go, or else you’ll have to wait outside for who-knows how long before you have a seat. Oh, even if you made reservation, they’ll tell you that “Your seat is for 7pm to 8pm, ok?”.

Luckily, this restaurant hasn’t been too popular amongst Singaporeans, yet.

After dinner, we went for movie. And this happened.

Seriously? National Anthem in the cinema? Damn it!

Fuck it.

Anyway, I got this Movie Club member card.

And it’s shiny.

Never had BKT for breakfast before. That’s a new experience.

Went to LEGOLAND for the n-th time.
Bo bian, being a Johorean with many foreign friends, it’s inevitable.

However this time they got a new area.
Star-Wars! Pew pew pew!

I wanna buy that RM1000 ship. It’s so shinyyyyyyyy~~~~~~

I’m gonna get one when I’m rich. :< Okay, although I've been here so many times, this is the longest stay in LEGOLAND of all my visits here. Not sure is it because of the queue, or because we walk slowly. Unexpectedly, we exit the theme park by 5pm. And because of this, we skipped the Hell Kitty town. Sorry Sharon. >“< Well, you can always just buy from Groupon and go there yourself.

果条仔 Kuey Tiao Kia. We skipped that, because of time constraint.

For some weird reason, we tried it in Google translate.
And it came out as…

It’s weird.

Todak has one of the best Seafood in town!
Sadly it’s full of Singaporeans now. So that place is damn crowded.

Still, we had our share.

Super giant “Medium” size pincers.
Expensive. But shiok!

City Square had this Doraemon 100th anniversary exhibition.
So, City Square also became part of our Abujaba gathering itinerary.

Basically the exhibitor took one whole patch of ground floor to put up a photo shooting area and merchandise selling area, and those this chance to earn some cash. You even need to buy for entrance ticket to visit inside!

Not much to see except to take photos.

Some of them are weird.

We found this place via Trip Advisor.
They have a website here:

This is the first time we all try this kind of game, so we chose the easiest one of them all.

Basically, the host will bring us into a locked room, and we gotta try to find our way out of the room. There are tips and tools scattered in the rooms, and we need to find them all.

To avoid spoilers, I’ll just say, it took us more than one hour to escape. And my biggest contribution is to “ask god”. hahaha~

And somehow we managed to escape!
Haha~ Not gonna be showcased on the wall of losers. :P

It’s been… I think… years since I last went for sing K.

LOL~ Need to wait for another year now.

As a Johorean, this is my first time went to JPO.
Kinda meh. So no comment here.

Might come back here next year once I have a new allocation of apparel allowance. hehe

Looking forward to Abujaba ver. 2!

Funny (but true) Logic

Woman: Do you drink beer?
Man: Yes.

Woman: How many beers a day?
Man: Usually about 3.

Woman: How much do you pay per beer?
Man: $5 which includes a tip.

Woman: And how long have you been drinking?
Man: About 20 years, I suppose.

Woman: So a beer costs $5 and you have 3 beers a day, which puts your spending each month at $450. In one year, it would be approximately $5400… correct?
Man: Correct.

Woman: If in 1 year you spend $5400, not accounting for inflation, the past 20 years puts your spending at $108000, correct?
Man: Correct.

Woman: Do you know that if you didn’t drink so much beer, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?
Man: …

Man: Do you drink beer?
Woman: No.
Man: Where’s your Ferrari?


Problem with wisdom tooth

Been having this toothache for weeks.

It started like 2 weeks ago, it was just this tiny itch every now and then, it feels pretty normal when I have an ulcer, figured it will go away after a few days if I just eat healthy for some time.

But no, it got worse everyday. Until one night, it was so painful that I can’t even go to sleep. Woke up in the middle of the night, and can’t fall back to sleep because of the pain.

Took MC for the next day, and go straight to a dentist. This MC was the very first MC I took ever since I started work here. Popped my MC cherry lol. ==

Ok, doctor say it could be that ulcer, I got 2 big ones at that moment. But also could be that wisdom tooth that had already decayed pretty badly. She prescribed me for mouth wash and some painkillers, and ask me to consider extracting that decayed wisdom tooth if the pain continues.

That consultation + X-ray alone costed 100 dollars. ==

After a week of better night sleep with that pain killer, it got worsen.
Although the pain is manageable during the day, it starts to get more painful during the night. Also, it gets awfully painful when I’m having hot or cold food or drinks. It must have been that decayed tooth, because now that I start pinching or pushing it, I can feel a little stabbing pain.

My appointment for dentist is Saturday evening. Hope it goes well after that extraction.

Pocket painful too.
So costly.

SPiCa – Cover by Narae

最近突然又玩回 osu! 了。
因为我发现,他们的 mania mode 越来越像回 o2mania 的了!

下载很多新的歌之后,找到一首很好听的 Miku cover。

原版的歌是 Miku 唱的。
这个却是由真人去翻唱 Miku 的歌,而且超级好听的!太神奇了!!

所以,只好拿 osu 的 folder 里面的 mp3 好了。呵呵

Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday, Happy New Year~

一个 post 直接打完全部祝福语,哈哈哈~

每年都有打 Christmas List 跟 New Year Resolution 的之前,

不过去年在新加坡做了一整年的工,从一开始的 pok gai 老,
到现在可以算是 financially stable 了,

(说到韶韵,今年好像又开始练习了!可是我还没有回去过。没有乐器,不懂借不借得到。>”<) 新的工作蛮富有挑战性的,虽然压力也比较多。 可是我还蛮喜欢我的工作的~ 打 code 就是我的强项。 :P


不懂是因为今年大家都 pok gai 没有放烟花了,
还是因为那个新的 high way 挡着了。


就这样,一起跨越了 1314。
不知不觉,就这样认识 10 年了。
我们又了一个 10 年后的 “鼎泰丰” 约定。哈哈!



上个月在某间 Popular 逛,


可惜没有 Jazz 版的《恋爱 ING》,也没有像我看那两场的那么长。
也好怀念他们那个 A Capella 的《武装》。还有《第一天》。这片碟也没有。




再加上今天是星期一,有 monday blue,

今天早上的心情,就让我想起了我以前在 KL 公司上班的最后几天那样。
Zombie mode。虽然圣诞节就快到了。







也还是要开机个 program 假装在认真工作。



刚刚在 YouTube 看到这个。
