In Topic: Can't seem to get the BPM right

25 February 2020 - 12:55 PM

In most cases, you're going to have to make tempo corrections throughout a chart because the musicians are not as accurate as machines.  To copy multiple notes, select a range of notes by clicking one, seeking to another note, holding SHIFT and clicking that note.  You can also add/remove a note to the selection by holding CTRL when you click.  There are also many other selection/deselection functions in the Edit>Selection menu.

In Topic: How to change handshapes for Rocksmith

24 February 2020 - 03:34 PM

Due to some requirements for handshapes in EOF (reflecting the almost universal usage of them in Rocksmith), making a handshape for a single note will involve using ghost notes (which won't affect gameplay).  Place a gem AFTER the single note in question, with it being the only note selected, use "Note>Pro guitar>Toggle ghost" (or press CTRL+G) and the note's fret value will be put in parentheses.  Select that ghost note and the single note for which you wanted to add the handshape and use Note>Rocksmith>Handshape>Mark (or press CTRL+SHIFT+H).  A blue rectangle will be drawn across the span of the notes in the new handshape and the single note will have a ghost note added to it because as per common Rocksmith usage, handshapes apply to chords and not single notes.


If you want to control which finger the handshape says to play the single note with, you can select the note and use "Note>Rocksmigh>Edit frets/fingering" (or press F) and define the finger number in the finger field for the string having the played note.  The values range from 0 (for thumb, you can also use the letter T) to 4 (pinky).


As far as alternatives, there aren't really any.  Even for authoring pro guitar in Rock Band 3, there was only one user created editor apart from EOF, developed by ZiggyXNAMVP ( It hasn't had any code changes in about 6.5 years though, and there's probably not much of any usage guides or videos for it.  Rocksmith authoring is reasonably complicated, you're going to want to read some of the guides and probably watch some videos as it's not something you can reasonably learn from scratch without many complications.  You can also skim through EOF's pro guitar authoring tutorial in the Help menu.  It pertains to Rock Band 3, but much of it is relevant to Rocksmith authoring.

In Topic: Latest EOF releases (1-14-2020)

Generally, EOF selects whichever the "default" MIDI device is in the OS, but I don't know how that would be defined in *nux.  From some Googling it sounds like a limitation with Allegro and the distro's sound system.  The top post at https://bugs.launchp...god/ bug/311833 suggests you may be able to just define a symlink so midiC0D0 points to your correct sound device name.  May be worth a try.

After troubleshooting this in the Allegro IRC channel for a while, it seems this is a problem with how Allegro is defined in Arch Linux's package manager or something like that.  I was told that you can install asp, then do "asp checkout allegro4", then do "makepkg -si" to properly build Allegro 4 and then it should work better when you build EOF.  Ie. these steps:


sudo pacman -S asp; asp checkout allegro4; cd allegro4/repos/community-x86_64/; makepkg -si

By any chance would you have enough time to kill to try to debug where the crash is occurring (ie. set a breakpoint within set_window_title() and step through until the system driver eventually gets called?


This would probably involve re-building with the -ggdb option so GDB can work fully when debugging it.
