Adding Custom Radio Stations
You can add custom Radio stations by adding new URLs to the radio2.txt file.

On PC you can find this file in the Steam install folder here:
C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\Beat Hazard

On Linux you need to add the file where your saves are, which is here:
/home/[YOUR NAME]/.local/share/BeatHazard_Linux2/

Here is an example radio2.txt file:

; add your radio streams here
; use ';' at the start of a line to add comments

; for example - here is a Classical Radio station
http://www.sky.fm/mp3/classical.pls

; note: the name of the station will be automattically added by the game
; to find lots of radio stations go to www.shoutcast.com
end;


Note: Keep the 'end;' command.

At the moment custom Radio support doesn't work on the Android version. I'm still trying to work out how you reliably find an external file there in C++ (Let me know if you do)

Hey, Starg! This would be great added right by you at the Guides section ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/49600/guides/ ) :P!

Btw, I sent you a e-mail telling you that the Spanish translation has some strings untranslated yet, and later I replied you saying if were possible have a file with the strings to make easier the search of that strings, instead of look for them ingame, but you didn't awnser that one, what about? :p

If I can add an internet station, how about adding my Google Play account? Anybody know how to do this?

How can I do it on Mac? I tried the Linux way, but it didn't work. =(

The radio2.txt file is in the package contents of the app. You should be able to edit it there is you can track it down. (I've never tried this though)

The most related file I found in the package contents was Info.plist, there was no radio2.txt.

I'm on MAC OSX 10.6.8 and also not being able to add any custom radio playlist since I couldn't find the radio2.txt file... Starg, is there any way you can help tracking down where is the file located by default? Thanks a ton in advance!

I've not had any luck with BBC radio stations (which are the nly UK ones worth it) I mean this website lists them all http://www.listenlive.eu/uk.html and I've tested them and they work outside of Beathazard. However upon trying to use them in-game they don't play anything and just kick me onto a random track of my own.

Any help?

Mac friends! I found the radio2.txt file! Here's a step-by-step:

-Start under your user files (mine is my name...yours might be different)
-Library
-Application Support
-Steam
-SteamApps
-common
-Beat Hazard

NOW, here's the trick. Right-click on the actual Beat Hazard application (Beat Hazard MAC) and select "Show Package Contents". This should open a new Finder window. Select the following:

-Contents
-Resources
-radio2.txt

There it is! Follow the instructions in the file to add a station. That's the easy part.
