Thanks for the help guys. The leading silence problem is somehow solved now. So I must have done something wrong somewhere, it was not the re-encoding since I'm fairly sure I did that because I was following the tutorial.
Took me also a while to figure out I can actually use the pro guitar section for rocksmith too. I assumed that wouldn't work so I was confused with the low options at first since I was only looking at the rocksmith section
There are many Rocksmith-centric EOF tutorials on this forum. The ones that are in EOF's help menu deal with general usage of the program, although the pro guitar one describes authoring pro guitar for Rock Band 3 and lots of those concepts carry over to Rocksmith authoring.
EOF doesn't use different chord fingering lookup logic based on where the shape is, you'd need to set that yourself. You can select multiple like notes and set their fingering all at once if you want.
I found the general topic with how to create cdlc that explains the basics of EoF, but besides that I haven't found any descent more in-depth youtube tutorial or even written tutorial. Most are very basic and don't explain anything like how to link notes/slides etc. Only found snippets of it on this forum and the official EoF one, so it took me a while to put everything together. I think I have a better grasp of the possibilities now tough. (Like for example the linknext option is always greyed out but apperantly you can just use the shortcut for that, wich was confusing to say the least)
Maybe you misunderstood the question, or I'm misunderstanding the answer. I know how to edit the fingerings for notes/chords. But what I mean is if it's possible to put the thumb as a fingering on the low E string? I assume it would be noted as "0"? I already did that but I don't know if the program will accept it, since I have still numerous other fingerings open and the program tells me that when trying to save but I'll do all of that when I have everything properly synced first. So I haven't been able to figure out if the "0" is accepted as a fingering or not.
Also have still one more question (sorry for being so random )
Is it possible to extend the sustain of a note further than the next note? Because when you scoll the mouse the sustain stops at the next note. I found out you can use linknext option and then turn it off to get the sustain longer but I doubt that's the proper way to do that
