#266403 Latest EOF releases (10-17-2017)

Posted by raynebc on 17 October 2017 - 11:50 PM

Hi, folks. The latest hotfix (10-17-2017) is in the first post. Changes are as follows:
*Corrected the fingering for the "Rock C" chord definition.
*Fixed a MIDI import bug where an open note in a legacy guitar track would import as a lane 1+6 chord.
*Fixed a bug in Rex Mundi input mode where if a lane 6 gem was toggled on for an existing note in a legacy guitar track, it didn't immediately remove all other gems to reflect that it's an open note.
*Enabled HOPO on/off status for open notes to export to MIDI, for use in Clone Hero.
*Fixed a bug performing/undoing a leading silence operation would not backup/reload the correct audio file.
*Added guitar/bass tuning definitions for "Eb drop Db", "D drop C", "C# drop B" and "Drop C" and definitions for all the "standard" bass tunings. This should cover the list of tunings used for nearly all official Rocksmith songs.
*Improved the "Edit guitar tuning" dialog to allow using Tab to change to the next input field and using the up/down arrow keys to increment/decrement a tuning value.
*Fixed a bug in the "Edit guitar tuning" dialog where if a string had a tuning value of more than 9 half steps below 0 (ie. -10), the tuning value would get truncated to -1.
*Improved the "Edit guitar tuning" dialog to recognize drop tunings where no strings are in standard tuning.
*Improved the "Edit guitar tuning" dialog to allow selecting from a list of all tunings EOF recognizes.
*Fixed a bug where editing a note to toggle a gem on lane 6 in a pro guitar track could cause a crash.

That's the "Disable Windows UI" EOF setting.

@Alex360 I'm not sure what you mean. I haven't changed any of the dialogs' appearance.

That's not how tech notes work, they apply a status to individual strings of a chord. If you apply linknext to the chord instead of just a single tech note, it will apply to all strings.

#263040 Latest EOF releases (10-17-2017)

Posted by raynebc on 09 September 2017 - 01:12 AM

Hi, folks. The latest hotfix (9-8-2017) is in the first post. Changes are as follows:
*Added additional entries to the "Add Rocksmith event" dialog.
*Added a "Track>Rocksmith>Bonus arrangement" function allowing a pro guitar/bass track to be specified as being a bonus arrangement for Rocksmith 2014.
*Fixed a crash that could occur in "Beat>Anchor beat" when modifying the last beat in a project.
*Improved the "Anchor beat" function to offer to perform auto-adjust logic on the affected beats.
*Added a chord shape definition for "Rock C".
*Added a check during save that will warn if a note has more than 32 bend tech notes, which will cause Rocksmith to crash.

#261941 Latest EOF releases (10-17-2017)

Posted by raynebc on 27 August 2017 - 03:04 PM

Bit deep for me, but I would like "Rock C" to have a default fingering...


Looks like @iminashi has investigated this for us. Thanks to him. The referenced texture mapping seems reasonable. We will have to try these characters and test for in game issues; though I don't anticipate any.

I'll look into making this change.

Is it possible to make in EOF than when you copy handshape phrases and paste it, the length of the phrase is not interrupted by the last note of the phrase? (instead its actual length). This will be very helpful because every time i paste a repeate phrase i must modify its length.

I'll see if there's a good way for me to do this. Until then, Berneer's workaround is probably the best way to go.

#261551 Latest EOF releases (10-17-2017)

Posted by raynebc on 22 August 2017 - 02:38 PM

Do any toolkit developers have concerns about me trying to allow parentheses in chord names? Even if strange chord names are allowed, for now I'd prefer to play it safe and just allow the characters that are expected to be used in normal scenarios.

#259330 Latest EOF releases (10-17-2017)

Posted by raynebc on 25 July 2017 - 07:53 PM

Hi, folks. The latest hotfix (7-25-2017) is in the first post. Changes are as follows:
*Added a "GHL conversion swaps B/W gems" preference that will affect conversion of GHL-mode notes to non-GHL notes (when toggling GHL mode or copying/pasting between tracks) by causing lanes 1-3 to map to the black GHL gems (instead of the white gems), lanes 4-5 to map to white GHL gems (instead of black gems) and a lower 5 lane chord to map to the white 3 GHL gem (instead of the black 3 gem).
*Fixed a minor bug with the rubberband benchmark function where the completion percentage wouldn't correctly restart from 0% when used multiple times in an EOF session.
*Improved "Beat>Paste events" to warn when attempting to paste any track-specific Rocksmith phrases/sections/events into a non pro guitar track, and to skip pasting such events.
*Added the ability to define a Rocksmith phrase as a "Rocksmith solo phrase", statistics for which Rocksmith will specially report as "solo mastery". The way Rocksmith denotes this in the XML requires that all instances of a particular phrase name are all solos or not solos, so when one phrase is added or edited, EOF will edit the solo status of other matching phrases accordingly.

#258393 Latest EOF releases (10-17-2017)

Posted by raynebc on 13 July 2017 - 03:17 PM

I was thinking about how to implement the solo phrase option and was going to just make it a checkbox in the dialog where you define an RS phrase, but "solo" is an attribute that applies to all instances of any particular phrase. I can either have EOF add/remove this solo property to all instances of a phrase when it is added to any instance or we can have it managed somewhere else, such as in the "Manage RS phrases" dialog (which is much more out of the way and I'd figure not very likely to get many peoples' attention). Let me know what you think.

False positives as usual. It happens to even the best AV products.

#256841 Latest EOF releases (10-17-2017)

Posted by raynebc on 23 June 2017 - 08:05 PM

Hi, folks. The latest hotfix (6-23-2017) is in the first post. Changes are as follows:
*Added logic to prevent an occasional failure to load eof.dat when changing display window sizes.
*Updated guitar tap and strum input modes to allow for a sixth fret button to be defined, for use in pro guitar and GHL mode tracks.
*Fixed a bug with guitar tap and guitar strum input modes where if keyboard keys were mapped to the fret/strum buttons, that input was allowed to also activate EOF's hardcoded keyboard shortcuts during playback.
*Changed RS exports so that non-alphanumeric characters are filtered out of RS phrase and RS section names, following DDC's behavior and reducing the risk of the phrase/section name causing problems in-game. If RS export(s) are enabled during save, EOF will warn if any sections/phrases will have such characters ommitted.
*Added the ability to author Guitar Hero Live style tracks, for use with Clone Hero. To use this style of authoring for one of the traditional 5 lane guitar/bass tracks, enable the "Enable GHL mode" function from the Track menu. When this mode is in effect, the 3 lowest lanes are used to author white notes, the 3 highest lanes are used to author black notes and the middle mouse button can be used to place open notes. In Rex Mundi input mode, the number 7 can also be used to author open notes. Alternatively, the "Note>Convert GHL open" function can be used to change selected notes into open notes if GHL mode is enabled for the active track. EOF will keep the chart as intact as it can when enabling/disabling GHL mode on a track that already has notes in it (or when copy/pasting notes between GHL and non-GHL tracks), but since GHL mode has six lanes IN ADDITION to an open note, lane 3 black notes are converted to 5 lane chords when a GHL track is converted to non-GHL format. This is so open notes can remain authored as open notes, but chords containing lane 3 black notes won't survive the conversion and EOF will warn about this and highlight affected notes. The 3D representation of GHL tracks three lanes, each of which can have one white gem and/or a black gem. If a lane has both gems, it is considered a "barre" chord (in that the player would hold two buttons down with one finger to play it) and EOF displays this as a black and white rectangle instead of a black or white triangle. The clipboard format has changed, make sure to perform another copy operation before performing a paste or the paste will malfunction.

#255280 Latest EOF releases (10-17-2017)

Posted by raynebc on 05 June 2017 - 12:41 PM

We should probably be specific about what is or isn't allowed. Would the developers go as far as saying that only alphanumeric characters should be allowed for phrases and sections?

#254468 Latest EOF releases (10-17-2017)

Posted by raynebc on 26 May 2017 - 12:08 PM

The issue was that there's no simple, cross-platform way for me to access to the OS clipboard, as far as I can tell.

#254433 Latest EOF releases (10-17-2017)

Posted by raynebc on 25 May 2017 - 05:12 PM

There's no immediate, simple way for me to add something like that. Luckily though, updating manually is pretty easy.
