ARMA 3 is an open-world, realism-based, military tactical shooter video game developed and published by Bohemia Interactive.It was released for Microsoft Windows in September 2013, and later announced for macOS and Linux in August 2015. ARMA 3 takes place in the mid-2030s, on the islands of Altis and Stratis in the Aegean Sea, and the South Pacific island of Tanoa.
Operation Flashpoint, Armed Assault, Arma 2 and Arma 3 support players having their own custom radio sounds in multiplayer which can be used to both amuse and annoy other players. However, many players make the mistake of using too high bitrates resulting in unnecessarily high file sizes causing extra lag and longer load/join times. The Vorbis ('OGG') codec used by BIS handles low bitrates quite well resulting in small yet usable sound files.
Create a directory 'Sound' in your players profile directory and place your OGG-files there.

Although there is no special restriction, the filename becomes the text which will be shown in the chat while you play your custom sound. So if your sound file says somethinglike 'I need a medic' then it would make sense to name your soundfile 'I need a medic.ogg'.
In Multiplayer use your custom sound radio menu (0-9-x) to play your custom sounds. 'x' is the number of the listed sound file. So push
There are several tools to convert sound files to OGG. Let's explain the method with two of them:

If your filesize as OGG is still bigger than 50 KB then you may consider to reduce the quality of your OGG file. Under 'Edit -> Properties -> Fileformats' (see Fig. 3) you can set the quality of your OGG export from 0 to 10 (preset is 5).
