#279976 Drawing tablet recommendation needed

Posted by ZagatoZee on 10 April 2018 - 09:18 AM

I can't name anything that'll suit your needs, but I will question them.


I have an Wacom Intuos 5 (now called pro) small tablet (https://www.amazon.c...0/dp/B0076HMDQO).


The included stylus for these have an "eraser" end on them, but tbh, I've used it maybe 3 times. I just simply do not like the feel of the eraser end, I'd much rather use one of the side buttons to switch between drawing and erasing - it is so much quicker in use and is more intuitive than flipping the stylus over.


As for wireless - I bought and returned a fortnight later, the wireless accessory kit. Bluetooth simply does not have the latency values to match the better tablets. Perhaps if I hadn't been using the tablet for 18 months wired before buying the wireless kit it wouldn't have seemed like such a big deal, but I just couldn't come to grips with it when I went wireless. It just didn't "feel right". Like suddenly playing a game at 30fps after only playing games at 144fps for several months - it just feels wrong and stuttery.


Forget about wifi connected as an option. It's ok if you're using a wifi stylus to grab someones signatures - but literally anything more demanding than that is un-usable in the real world.


As for the XP-pen - I have no first hand experience with the brand so can't comment. It looks decent value for the money. The only thing I would question - is how easy to get are the replacement nibs? Does the brand have a variety of options for nibs? 


Wacom Pro ship with a few of each of their nib types and the feel between them all is very different. I quickly found I much prefer the feel of the black flex nibs - but I know users that can't stand these ones and will only use other nibs that I hate. The difference in feel the nib makes can not be understated and being able to swap them out is super useful.

#270532 CLDC song freeze/cant play it

Posted by ZagatoZee on 12 December 2017 - 06:30 PM

The .dll file you are using is from before October last year - a new one was needed after the remastered update, you will find links to it in the Help \ FAQ on this site.

#265586 Help with CDLC

Posted by ZagatoZee on 07 October 2017 - 06:00 PM

look at the options under the repairs tab - the max 5 ones are easily fixed by the Remove NDD option typically.


These are the setting I personally use in CFSM, https://i.gyazo.com/...eb802c6deb8.png

#265366 How to show name of music in OBS on Twitch?

Posted by ZagatoZee on 04 October 2017 - 04:20 PM

That is done via a tool called Rocksniffer, it is available from https://github.com/k...hvi/RockSniffer

Most discussion about it is done on the RocksmithUnite discord group.


Posted by ZagatoZee on 12 August 2017 - 07:01 PM

you don't need the patcher for PC, the .dll file is all you need.

#248202 No D3DX9_42.dll file in my rocksmith folder?

Posted by ZagatoZee on 04 March 2017 - 11:18 AM

If there wasn't one to replace, that just means you wer enot using CDLC before October last year - don't stress.


If you have the current and correct .dll in the folder and own cherub rock - go play some cdlc, that's all you have to do (assuming you've put the cdlc files into your dlc folder.

#248102 [Spanish] No me carga las custom song

La advertencia fue simplemente para usar twitter. Los usuarios de Twitter deben ser asesinados como un servicio público. Jajajajaja

#247753 [Spanish] No me carga las custom song

Posted by ZagatoZee on 27 February 2017 - 10:42 AM

Necesita descargar el nuevo archivo .dll que se ha vinculado en cada página desde que el parche Remastered se puso en funcionamiento.
Esto solucionará el problema con el CDLC que no se está reproduciendo.
También puede valer la pena leer las reglas del sitio - tweeting el equipo oficial de Rocksmith, o usando su hashtag - en un problema de CDLC, le permitirá permantly prohibido de CustomsForge.
2500 canciones no es un problema para el juego, que no sea el tiempo de carga.
Probablemente también desee obtener el administrador de canciones de CustomsForge, ya que remastered trajo algunos nuevos errores a CDLC. También le permitirá agregar automáticamente Dificultad dinámica a todos sus CDLC con unos pocos clics de ratón (tardará algunas horas sin embargo para reparar 2500 + canciones).

#247258 Why can't I comment on Record Pages?

Posted by ZagatoZee on 23 February 2017 - 05:26 PM


Have I been a naughty girl, or something?


Probably :-)


However, as for the comemnts not showing up - that's likely just the same bug several of us (myself included) see constantly. Sadly we haven't managed to nail down it's cause. We are hoping that with a forum version upgrade cmoing soon that this is one of the issues that'll be squashed.


For now, your best bet is write your response, then leave it for a few minutes (until you see the "Last auto saved:" information showing up below the response box), before submitting the post.

#239725 Is Custom Forge concidered hacking on steam?

Posted by ZagatoZee on 07 December 2016 - 01:48 PM

No-one has been banned from steam for using CDLC. Mentioning CDLC (or posting screenshots) on a Rocksmith Steam Group may get you banned from that group - but you'll still be able to play the game.

#227461 Can I manually edit CDLC difficulty?

Posted by ZagatoZee on 02 September 2016 - 09:16 AM

DD in most CDLC is added via a tool that is integrated into the RocksmithToolkitGUI, it uses some logic to create the DD levels - but will never be as "good" as the manual way that official content is made.


It is also reliant on the person creating the track, to do the right thing - create proper sections etc.


The DDC (Dynamic Difficulty Creator) tool has been updated many times during the life of CustomsForge however, so some older tracks may have had DD added using an older version that simply isn't a good as the current versions. 


One thing you could try - is getting the toolkit (https://www.rscustom.net/) importing the tracks that seem worse than others and try re-doing the DD on them. It might make them better, it might not. There are a few options when applying DD that you may want to experiment with.

#227282 [TRR] Rocksmith Remastered Screenshots – Player Stats

Posted by ZagatoZee on 31 August 2016 - 09:26 AM

Can i get some clarification on the definition of "break CDLC" here?

If you just need to re-add the .dll file into the folder after the update, is that considered to be breaking CDLC?


We know plenty of users that have difficulty even managing to do that..... so some might see it as broken. But to me, that isn't "breaking CDLC", it's an entirely possible occurrence after a patch the way steam handles data updates.


What odds are we being given here anyway? A straight 1:1 - then put me down for $500.

#226655 Whoops, looks like something went wrong.

Posted by ZagatoZee on 26 August 2016 - 12:47 PM

Thanks guys, we have been aware of it for a while, unfortunately our server admin has had the power out at home and hasn't been able to  login to perform a proper server restart - we are hoping this should be fixed momentarily.

#220947 Line 6 Amps?

Posted by ZagatoZee on 10 July 2016 - 03:07 PM

Lets try and get this thread back on track.


A high school student wants to build a rig for approx USD$1500 that will work for a gig with upto 1500 people - that he has to save up for months to be able to afford - try to keep that in mind.


First off - well done lad - hope the show goes well, regardless on what gear you end up using - you are much braver than I ever was at 17!


An important question really is - what sound system does the venue have? Is there a PA system that you can hook into to provide the volume? Since that question alone can radically alter what gear is appropriate for use. Do they have mics for micing cabs? A competent sound person to help you get the best sound from the combination of your gear and the venue's equipment?


I'm not going to touch the Valve/tube head vs modellers conversation. Both have their uses and places - and one very well may be the better option in your circumstance - depending on the answers to the above questions.


Perhaps I missed it, but I didn't notice the OP suggesting the kinds of music they will be playing?


I'm not going to suggest XYZ equipment over others, because quite frankly, I don't have the experience to say X is better than Y.


What I would suggest however, is the OP spending a few hours reviewing the "Andertons Sound Like X without busting the bank" videos. Given the budget for those vids includes the guitar - and presumably the OP doesn't need to factor that in, you could potentially come across a really good (for you) rig in those vids. Nothing will replace being able to sit down and try gear yourself, but maybe those vids can help you narrow down a few options before you step into a music store. - https://www.youtube...._Zk4qQbbZc2qTCU

#219099 Official DLC from Rocksmith 1 downloadable?

Posted by ZagatoZee on 22 June 2016 - 03:13 PM

Pretty sure that track was On Disc for Rocksmith 2012, not DLC. In order to get it then, you need to own 2012 in your steam library, then you can buy the "Disc import tool" - for $10. It gives you most of the on-disc content for 2012, in 2014. About 50 tracks for $10.


You won't find links to that track on this site at all.
