#251207 Newbie question: Fingerprint zones?

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 15 April 2017 - 01:17 AM

Another thing:


In the video you posted the bright blue highway lines extend past the last note of each handshape a little bit.  If you want to do this (most think it's insignificant) extend the length of the last note by selecting it and mouse scroll up (or press "]").  Set the handshape with CTRL+SHFT+H, then mouse scroll down (or press "[") to return the note to normal.


If you are just starting out read these tutorials: http://customsforge....-tutorial-list/

(except for the FULL IN-DEPTH TUT one; it's outdated)


This one covers the more complex things you might get stuck on, but don't worry if you don't understand it at first.


#251206 Newbie question: Fingerprint zones?

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 15 April 2017 - 12:59 AM

Hi, I'm kind of new here.


I've had Rocksmith for 360, pretty much since it came out.  I just got a mini PC so I could get customs.


I haven't created a custom yet, but will try my hand out with something easy.


However, there are a few customs that are out there that I'd like to tweak a little bit, for myself (and possibly share if anyone is interested and the original creator doesn't mind).


My first question, of many to come:


I have seen how to add arpeggios to a string of notes, but how do you add "fingerprint zones" if you don't want to do an arpeggio pane?


It seems that the developers sometimes just use this instead of arpeggio windows if it would make the song look too busy.  My Name is Jonas and House of the Rising Sun are two examples of this.





Sorry if this is a stupid question, I haven't really played around with EoF yet, so I don't know what's possible.




Handshapes.  Select the range of notes and press CTRL+SHIFT_H.



More specifically:

Using EOF click the first note you want in the "fingerprint zone"

hold shift

click the last note you want in the "fingerprint zone"

let go of shift


Now the notes are selected.




You'll see the range of notes get highlighted.


Click the first note and press F

define the handshape the way you want it.

#247260 Modeling Software

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 23 February 2017 - 05:36 PM

You could use Rocksmith and use the tone you are going to add to the custom.


This does not work if you are using audio through HDMI or USB or Optical.

This does not work with some motherboards.

This usually works with Windows machines using the green line-out port.


Load up your tone in the game.

When you switch over to EOF the sound from Rocksmith will cut off.

Open up the windows Sound menu (Either right click the speaker icon in the bottom right or type "sound" in the start menu and it should pop up)

Switch to the playback tab.

"Speakers" (or something named similarly) will be selected as the default device.  Select a different device listed and click "Default Device".  You'll lose all audio from your speakers.

Click speakers and make them the default device again.

You'll get your audio back but this time you'll still hear your guitar in Rocksmith while other windows are active.

If you still don't see any notes, try switching the difficulty tabs near the top of the screen


sometimes called supaeasy, easy, medium, amazing

sometimes called 0,1,2,3,4,5...


If the tab has a * on it, it has notes.

As everyone suggested, pitch detection works but the display maxes out at 3 arrows.

#176245 Latest EOF releases (2-20-2019)

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 18 September 2015 - 03:20 AM

Wait... what?  When did this become possible?  I just updated to  9-15-2015 from 1436.




Was this on purpose?  I'm just asking in case it was an accident.  But if not, what is the intended use? an un-strummed pre-slide? or???  Does RS support this? :unsure:


I was used to pulling back on my wheel to ensure I didn't have any unwanted note trails, and woah!


Found a way to reproduce it.


Create a note

Press h

Mouse scroll down

#176219 handshape/arpeggio for multiple notes at a time?

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 17 September 2015 - 10:22 PM

Just to summarize, you guys are wanting to be able to author several different low density chords that use the same chord ID in the handshape?


Not exactly, rather be able to author several different low density chords that use the same chord ID in a NEW handshape for each chord.


If it's only one handshape written all chords inside (after the start time) will be repeat lines.  Even if the high density tag is set to 0.

#174625 handshape/arpeggio for multiple notes at a time?

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 11 September 2015 - 02:41 AM

Is this what you want?




If so, at the end of the XML there is a handshape section.  Change the handshape chord id numbers to match the first chord.

As far as i know Ubi notetrackers dont author rests, if i remember correctly they argued that it could clutter the screen and that the guitarrist would know after a few plays when to rest by themselfs.



EXTREMELY rare, but I've seen it once or twice.
