Uncommenting and disabling all of the DLC packs through gog.ini disables all but two DLC-related items:

-Valve Clothing Pack (Team Fortress 2 Masks)
-Cheapy D Pack

Experimenting with different names in the .ini file have yielded no luck. Is this simply impossible in the current version? If so, is there any other way to disable these? Especially the TF2 masks. Getting the popup about them/having to remove all of them from your wardrobe one by one would be rather tedious every game if you don't want them.

Thanks.

EDIT: Since I could not find anyone even asking this question online, let alone a solution, I figured it out myself. Check the 3rd post in this thread for step-by-step instructions for how I disabled both of these. =)

EDIT #2: You can now download the file to disable both of these DLCs right here without having to follow the steps to create one yourself. Simply rename the extension of this file from .jpg to .xtbl and place it in your SR3 directory. You can delete it later if you want these two DLCs re-enabled.

That's because those two aren't traditional DLC, but rather patch content added a short while after the initial release of the game.
Alright, I've figured this out on my own. For anyone else that wishes to disable the TF2 Masks and CheapyD, here the 3 full steps required to do so. This will disable, but not uninstall the DLC; if you wish to re-enable these later, all you have to do is delete the file you put into the Saints Row 3 directory.

PLEASE NOTE: If you already have saved games in progress using these files, or play multiplayer with other users who use either of these DLCs, it could cause very undesirable results such as game crashes. As always, modify your game with care!

Step 1
Extract dlc1_unlockables.xtbl from [gamedir]\packfiles\pc\cache\dlc1.vpp_pc -- you can find the program needed to extract this file here:

https://www.saintsrowmods.com/forum/threads/minimauls-saints-row-2-saints-row-the-third-saints-row-iv-and-gat-out-of-hell-tools.3188/

Just download the file named ThomasJepp.SaintsRow .zip from the bottom of the first post. Once you have it unpacked, drag and drop dlc1.vpp_pc onto ThomasJepp.SaintsRow.ExtractPackfile.exe, and it will extract everything into a subfolder where the dlc1.vpp_pc file is, named 'extracted-dlc1.vpp_pc'

Step 2
Inside the newly created subfolder, locate dlc1_unlockables.xtbl and open it for editing with a plain text editor.

Search for and delete these 2 full sections between the ### signs below - be careful not to erase anything else by accident, or SR3 may crash when loading. Note: Copying and pasting these sections into a search function won't work; these sections are formatted with tab spaces in the files, and GOG message posts don't support tab spaces, but you CAN search for the 'name' of either section to help find where each one starts in the file easier, the names to search for are: DLC_asset07_alert and DLC_valve_alert

Step 3
Save the file. You've now modified dlc1_unlockables.xtbl and all you have to do now is move or copy the file into the base Saints Row 3 game directory (where SaintsRowTheThird.exe is located). These changes take effect the next time you launch the game, so if you have it running already, you'll need to exit the game first.

And that's all there is to it. Kudos to anyone that is willing to upload a modified version of dlc1_unlockables.xtbl for our readers somewhere it will remain downloadable for a long time, so that all they have to do is download it and pop it in their Game directory without having to extract or edit anything.

You could change the extension to jpg and use the attach image function to upload it to the forum.
Didn't know that. Thank you. Attached to first post.

Thank you for doing the research. I haven't tried your solution, but I will when I start a new game.

Most of the DLC for this game is completely useless and annoying. On my last (and first) playthrough, I didn't bother to check what everything included and ended up ignoring everything except the story DLCs for the rest of the game.

I feel the same way. It would be much better if they had implemented the DLC to unlock as you progress through the game and earn respect, or if they had added new activities that unlock the stuff, or some sort of store you can buy/unlock just the ones you want at, etc. Getting bombarded as soon as you start the game with about 25 DLC popups is obnoxious, and then you find you've got a huge jump start on the game with weapons and vehicles. I prefer to earn my way to power, not have it dumped on me like I typed in a dozen cheat codes.

But that's just my opinion, and the way I play my games. It's just nice to have the choice to turn these sorts of things off if one feels so inclined. Enjoy!
