One more bug I've encountered: When the lyrics are already in place and I change the bpm on a beat marker with Adjust notes enabled, the lyrics are deleted. Lyric markers are still there, but there's no lyrics.

Thanks, I'll check this out.

I've had this happen to me too recently. Just wanted to confirm this. Thank you for your great work as always

Well, I had a chance to look it over this morning -- I think it's probably just (new) user error. I had tried the "select precise like" function for a specific recurring slide note and changing that note, but instead of only changing the slide notes, it changed ALL of the notes on that string!

 

 

It's possible (probable) I only used the "select like" function, which I'm guessing only looks at the fret numbers, not at any attributes.

 

Anyway, while fixing the mess I made, I discovered a number of new errors I'd overlooked, so it's all good.

 

Meanwhile, for the Pasting thing -- even though it pastes to the cursor, when I drag it to the appropriate grid snap point on the beatmap, shouldn't ALL of the notes snap to the grid? This isn't what was happening -- and from other customs I've seen, a lot of people haven't noticed this either.

 

Is there a "Re-snap" command?

 

Last thing: I noted that you put the key list in the help menu. Could you make it open like the other help files? That way I can keep it up and running while I'm working (until I get things memorized -- if ever).

"Select like" only compares the fret values and strings used, so "fret 8 on the E string" and "fret 8 on the E string that also slides" would both be considered a match. "Precise select like" requires the techniques to be the same, so "fret 8 on the E string" and "fret 8 on the E string that also slides" would be considered different. The paste issue you're talking about isn't a problem with paste, it's the behavior of clicking and dragging multiple notes across tempo changes. All notes are moved the same number of milliseconds instead of each one being grid snapped, so notes will fall out of grid snap when you do this. That's why you need to seek to the appropriate position before pasting in order to avoid this. There's a resnap command in the Note menu (and a shortcut is given), but this function can be destructive and should be used carefully: If two notes are moved to the same grid snap position during resnapping, they are merged (EOF will warn you if this happens, so you can undo the operation). Or if the grid snap value you have is too large (small denominator value), notes may snap to a position that you don't want simply because they're closer to that grid snap based on the current grid snap value. About the key list, it's a text file that EOF displays in a simple text box. You can open it up in a text editor or program of your choosing though, it's the keys.txt file in EOF's bin folder. If I ever have enough spare time to come up with a master list of all keyboard shortcuts, I'll probably make it an HTML help file that launches in your default web browser, and that would allow the best formatting.

hm I think you should globally mark a diff (*Medium) even if only tech notes are inside it.

 

The problem is that if i have for example notes and tech notes inside Medium and i use Paste From into Amazing and delete the notes in Medium using ctrl+a the tech notes still stay there but i can only see that something is left in Medium if tech mode is activated.

 

The alternative would be to throw a warning stating that there are tech note without use/with red status.

 

Besides that tech mode sometimes cant be deactivated and the tech notes disappear. This have happened when using Paste From Medium (includes tech notes) to Amazing and then deleting the notes in Medium. Maybe the tech notes with red status  in Medium create an issue with the ones in Amazing.

 

The overall question is if it would be best to just delete tech notes when the user does also delete the notes in the normal mode.

I could probably do something like that, but maybe only if the difficulty limit for the track has been removed and the difficulties are displayed by number instead of by name. The difficulty tabs themselves aren't wide enough (ie. "(*Supaeasy)" would go over the edge of the tab). If I went with just displaying this for the numbered difficulties, it could go something like "*1(*)" for a difficulty that had both regular and normal notes or "1(*)" for a difficulty that only had tech notes. How does that sound?

I couldn't reproduce this. If you find a way to do so, please let me know.

I don't know if I'd want to implement this, at least not without making it a user preference. If you wanted to remove everything in a track difficulty, the "Erase track difficulty" function is more suitable.

hm ok

 

btw. i noticed that when i copy notes with tech notes and paste them to a different place the tech notes are not copied over. Paste From does copy tech notes but not the normal ctrl+c/v. Is that intended that way?

That's expected behavior at this time. Having copy examine the tech notes affecting the copied notes is kind of like having the delete function remove both, or clicking and dragging a note move both. There are several functions that would have to be changed to allow all of that to happen.

good to know, its not a big deal because when in tech mode i can just copy the tech notes and paste them where i want and they will maintain the right distance.

Here is a zip of some arrangements that I can't import as of eof r1299: http://www.sendspace.com/file/o4gtqd In eof it says "Failure. Check log for details" And in the log it's always that tuning value error

The error message was wrong (I've fixed it), it's actually about the <ebeats> tag. The "count" attribute is not there even though it's required. Do you find that ALL custom songs you unpack with the toolkit have this defect? If so, it's probably a bug with the toolkit, in which case would you please open a new issue about it here? https://github.com/r...-toolkit/issues

Hi, folks. The latest hotfix (r1304) is in the first post. Changes are as follows: *Fixed a bug that could cause alternate endings to not import. *Improved the "Edit bend strength" dialog to start with the input focus on the bend strength field. *Improved the "Seek to beat/measure" dialog to empty the number field when launched and fixed a minor issue where escape may have to be pressed multiple times to cancel the dialog. *Fixed a bug where tempo changes that lead to some of the chart running past the end of the chart audio caused such content to get removed from the project. *Fixed a bug with RS2 export where linknext status didn't force chordnotes to keep their chord's defined sustain length unless the chordnote also had bend or slide status. *Fixed a bug where keyboard input from various dialog windows or prompts could leak and activate other keyboard shortcuts after the dialog was closed. *Fixed a crash that would occur if a track had more tech notes than regular notes. *Fixed a bug where auto-adjust would lose the manually defined name of affected notes and the text of lyric entries. As a side effect, this would cause pitchless lyrics to be deleted because a lyric with both no text and no pitch is discarded. *Fixed bugs with Feedback input mode where the "edit pro guitar note" and "edit frets/fingering" dialogs couldn't be launched for the note at the seek position without explicitly selecting the note first. *Fixed a bug with Feedback import where if a note began at the same position as a star power phrase, it could combine with the previous note instead of being imported as a separate note.

Usually all I need is the .eof file. If you send it to me, please send some details about the issue and how to reproduce it.

Deja-vu: http://customsforge....ge-4#entry11677 You'll have to get Chrome to behave or maybe even go as far as using another browser or a download manager to download EOF hotfixes if Chrome won't let you unblock the download.

fabianosan asked in another thread (http://customsforge....eof/#entry13642) if you could provide the original XML files before they were packed into a custom with the toolkit?

hm it sounds actually very good but the downside is that the diff limit remove seems to be needed to be activated for every track manually and that for every project, in this case a global option in preferences would be better. But im not familiar with using the diff limit remove therefore i have no clue if a global setting would make the idea behind the diff limit remove worse.

Making it a preference instead of a per track option would severely disrupt the ability to author for Rocksmith and other pro guitar capable games (Rock Band 3, Phase Shift) at the same time. I guess we can put up with it running off the edge of the difficulty tab a little.
