#277232 Requests Discontinued.

Posted by Alex360 on 14 March 2018 - 04:46 PM

@firekorn actually I think we need some list of the charters that will do such job so you could sign up for this in some kind of thread and than report back of your job done etc maybe we could also do a leader boards for this kind of thing?

#277148 Requests Discontinued.

Posted by Alex360 on 13 March 2018 - 10:15 AM

I feel like charters doing it's own thread workshops for themed stuff like Classic Rock Coalition guys, or maybe like Snake3169 who did fav songs of ours by Sabbath and Metallica.

I'm sure we could do something like requests of the week thing to give some stats on trends IDK. but since most of the hall of fame songs are done including most of the songs from discography of those hugely popular bands it's not that urgent to keep requesting metallica new album songs out there.

I think we could do our local memes about requests now :P
Nonetheless there's 3+ generations passed as for charters maybe even more if you'll count guys like me who's been doing this for RS1 or GH3\GHWT\FOF\PS franchise.

as for requests and requesters, hmm. Maybe Unleashed could gather some goods off streames that do CDLC songs on their streams to support this site, not sure how but that could be tricky part of the user agreement\rules of the site or so idk, since making money off streams with cdlc edgy thing("thanks" to twitch for muting audio on records), I'm sure some of them already support us at least as ads to answer the question "where did you get that song from?"

It would be fun to ask author of rocksmither bot to add telemetry thing for requests and 5 or 10 most played songs so it will report back it so we could have some data, not that streamers consider that much about incognito status since they stream on twitch and we usually see their faces so not a big deal for them one thing to consider as list of songs to suggest as request material,
why that you may recognize song if you'll see it and usually you don't remember much unless you've listened to it recently.

We don't need request actually, all we need is more intermediate notetrackers\charters to fill the gap in our songs library. Tools and tutorials are pretty advanced now and it's no-brainer to start charting today vs 5 years ago. one downside is if you've got the tab for a song you can just sync it or try your best to fix mistakes and polish it along with using proper techniques and tones.

Main factor for me to discontinue this thing which were started after ForgeOn did his spreadsheet for requests  (http://customsforge....просы-и-анонсы/) was that it just got cluttered with random stuff from our Russian comrades and I've lost interested in it as well, no one will do those songs ever, plus it's really hard to maintain if you don't spend there an hour or so of your personal time >__>
so far so good we've got some progress on some of the song that were in list but those were made by unrelated person who just can do it and I'm not even sure he saw my spreadsheet or not before it's got vanished,,,

#275416 MAC Issues and Developer Help

Posted by Alex360 on 20 February 2018 - 05:03 PM

@Shaolindelt it's no different form Windows side of processing it, just require you to grab mac version of tools, you've got wined toolkit, now download EOF for mac (http://customsforge....ses-12-18-2017/), go DL audacity and tuxguitar (maybe guitar pro is an option for you or you've got it already.... same for GoPlayAlong, there's some tutorials here, not necessary to buy it) just in case you could also get cfm for mac

hm as for vocals it's a pain, but you could use UltraStarCreator(not sure if there's one for mac tho)

go here fo all kind of tutorials:

#275402 MAC Issues and Developer Help

Posted by Alex360 on 20 February 2018 - 03:44 PM

@Shaolindelt skip work, just play some stuff, then find song you love and miss from rs, find tabs, find about 2 to 3 hours of free time, spend those crying and begging(also asking some questions on the road of creating cdlc), then generate one successfully, play it, cry.


Just kidding, creating cdlc of beginner lvl isn't hard and should take you less than a hour at first glance :P

#275371 MAC Issues and Developer Help

Posted by Alex360 on 20 February 2018 - 10:56 AM

@Shaolindeltat the first tab, select import package, then select your _p.psarc file and choose folder to store files it will unpack while doing so. Now you should click save project and save one in folder named after your cdlc. At the top right corner of the creator form you can see PC MAC XBOX PS3 checkboxes, check mac and un-check pc (to speedup a bit creation process).

When it creates file try it in game, it *should* work in rs now, make sure you're putting _m.psarc in your rocksmith dlc folder.

as for converted file you can link me to the cdlc page at CF and I'll try to generate one with my toolkit at windows machine. Would be good to have "converted" and "generated" file to compare what's the difference  :)

#274905 Mark as bad?

Posted by Alex360 on 14 February 2018 - 12:38 PM

@Zappa hmm, you've got a hard day or what? I'm not trying to insult you :P

I'm just hoping that mods\admins will read that at least they already should know about ignition enough to issue a v2 of it, but all we'll get is new forum engine pretty much soon...

TL;DR for below
On a record hit go to record page button and scroll to comments, there you go! Also you could notice a report button there, beware it's actually working tool.

There was some topics on "ignition has poor way to comment so charters aka notetrackers will receive less feedback from regular users"
and so on. so the thing is you can't find how to leave a comment that's an issue. anyway if you click on any record at ignition page you'll see a form with description and album art. so if you click download it will redirect you to a download page but to enter to cdlc record page with ratings and all the info with comments you should click at "go to record page"
and you'll see a main-forum-styled page with all the info and DL link and music vids plus comments (there you could comment on your issues or just say how much you love this song ad appreciate other people's work etc)

Before comments section you'll find a button named "Roprt". Click that and write down a note that link is down.

At least charter got notified by a mod about link expiration and if you comment on a record you could get a upload from another user.
in worst case scenario another charter could post a copy of that cdlc if author is gone (so charter who posted will maintain that record)

If you've been to CF request list you know it's abandoned and better way to get song charted it
a) should be very popular(we've covered almost all popular songs of classic rock and metal)
B) charter should like that song too
c) you've got your own friend who'll chart it for you ;)
d) learn yourself and forget how to enjoy cdlc or your own production, but now your song got charted :)

#271978 Rocksmith White Screen crash. Help?

Posted by Alex360 on 03 January 2018 - 04:51 PM

@RapidResponder validate your steam cache(aka your install) and if didn't help go delete rocksmith.ini from the game's folder

maybe you should also update your gfx drivers (but it's highly that files are corrupted esp that cache.psarc)

#271939 Highlighted Fret Markers

Posted by Alex360 on 03 January 2018 - 04:43 AM

@Rockfirstlast for me it's clearly misinterpretation of sequence of notes since it should be per chord I guess, but those chords has 12 notes in row so I could just try to fix this for chords probably, so it would be a bit right than it's now

I don't feel right doing per ignore statues exception for numbering, since we can actually see those in game it's just doesn't score.

#271056 Problems with Notes over 25th fret

Posted by Alex360 on 21 December 2017 - 01:23 AM

12 string guitar sound so smooth and nice, still not a way to play it for me, I guess GNR used it a lot or who it was I saw it first time IDK :D

#269094 Real tone cable burned? (It does not work anymore)

Posted by Alex360 on 23 November 2017 - 11:33 AM

@SkullRock, Idk if you wold mind trow it away ship it to me, I wanna dig in it's dead body myself, I can pay for shipping it wou;ld be europe-europe and would take not that much time I guess :)

btw cable itself is fine so if you know how to solder jack on the other side It will be decent quality cable for inter-block connections for your pedalboard or so if you the one who bother to do so :P


Was glad to help ;)

#269082 Real tone cable burned? (It does not work anymore)

Posted by Alex360 on 23 November 2017 - 08:14 AM

@SkullRock contact ubi if it's warranty case (and I hope so cuz no flash drive will burn out if you keep it plugged in for a night or so same for controllers or usb keyboard maybe it's early designs of RT cables you've got there?)

also there's nocable patch (search for github one) but you need to make sure your interface is able to go -115 dBu range otherwise it would be crap as for tones and detection :)

#268193 Rocksmith stops and "rewinds" in the middle of the song. How to fix t...

Posted by Alex360 on 11 November 2017 - 03:56 PM

Personal fav of doing disk backup with just clean install of windows, optimized with all the apps installed so if things goes south you could just slap a backup from your early days and all just fine, no need to fiddle around with Powershell or cmd\registry stuff for days...

not sure about your system, maybe it's just hardware, still I've got RS at my 2005 era pc dual core ar 720p and it was good, but about 30 fps vs 60+ now :P

still no issues like you've got, maybe it's just laptop and it thermal trottle like for one guy here (from 2.4 gz to 1.2 ghz) need more info before we could really help you
