#274304 Big issue with guitar tones disappearing after songs

Posted by cozy1 on 07 February 2018 - 09:13 AM

Latest CFSM beta should also be able to automagically fix the Dead Tone issue as well.  Just run all your CDLC through the CFSM Repairs option making sure Mastery 100% Bug radio button is selected in addition to your other choices.  See the CFSM Repairs Help menu for an explanation of the available options. 


Be sure to post a link to any CDLC that CFSM is not able to repair so that CFSM can be improved.

#273736 100% glitch

Posted by cozy1 on 29 January 2018 - 01:13 PM

Yes there is one.  If you want it i think you should try looking in any of the 1000 post before you that asked.

I couldn't agree more with you.  Wish people would learn how to search before they ask:   https://www.google.c...=utf-8&oe=utf-8

Will make 'Duplicate' controls work like 'SongManager' controls in next beta revision, i.e. right clicking a song opens menu options.

#262545 i can't play any cdlc songs :c

Posted by cozy1 on 03 September 2017 - 05:26 PM

The latest beta version of CFSM validates the 'D3DX9_42.dll' installation each time the user runs CFSM.  If the dll is not installed or the user has the wrong dll installed then the user will be prompted, and CFSM will install the correct dll, into the correct location.  Give CFSM a try if you are still having trouble getting Rocksmith 2014 Remastered working with CDLC.

Footnote: Be sure to buy and install 'Cherub Rock' in the 'dlc' folder first and save yourself a lot of headaches.


#256741 CDLC Freeze

Posted by cozy1 on 22 June 2017 - 01:45 PM

Plz follow the nice instructions I provided ... (other comments have been edited out for all the children who read this).   You should have ... Latest test build - (rev 8fa5bf3e) ... ok.  


Whatever audio file you are feeding the toolkit is probably marked read only.  You need to change this.

@Lyddenn  It is bad practice to begin the audio of a CDLC at time zero.  You should insert leading blank audio with EOF.  Also, delete all extraneous audio files from your EOF project folder, i.e. you should only have a guitar.ogg or guitar.wav file.  Also delete cst_showlights.xml file. 


Try the latest beta/test version of the toolkit that I just posted.  It should take care of the problem you were having.

Looking at the toolkit code for section naming you will not find any special characters or punctuation used in ODLC.  For consistency it may be best to apply this validation to phrase naming as well (so no underscores, hyphens, etc).

@raynebc @cozy1  Thanks, Guys


  The problem was solved by going to the EOF's Ver. 1.8RC12 5-23-2017 - import/export preferences and disabling the "Abridged Rocksmith 2 export", re-saving the EOF projects (Customs) and then using the new XML files when repacking with the toolkit. Like raynebc suggested. I new it had to be a real simple thing causing the problem, but frustrating when a simple mis-setting drives you crazy for a few days. Luckily if someone else see's this problem show up here's the cure. I also installed the Toolkit (rev 3d133c61), which is fantastic. Thanks for all the extra new features in it. All is good again.

Downgrading solves absolutely nothing.  Provide your project files that caused the chord issue using the newest beta toolkit and newest version of EOF, or have your comments accepted for what they seem to be ... 'rage and banter' that require no further response from the developers.

Please provide links to your original EOF project files BEFORE the arrangements have been run through the toolkit.  I wil take a look and see if it is issue with toolkit.

Since the XML file names are arbitrary, I don't know if they can really be counted on. If you're willing to parse the file to validate it as being a lyric file, checking for the presence of a <vocals> tag as the first non-comment tag should be enough to tell for sure.


I actually thought of doing that too (parse the file to validate it as being a lyric file), and then realized there is only one of me.

Have you tried replacing '-' with &#8211;


Here's a thread with other alternatives for how to use dashes.

#251094 HELP! CDLC files are gone..... Kind of....

Posted by cozy1 on 13 April 2017 - 05:24 PM

Once you get rid of that "maybe I got a virus' issue.  There's no problem with renaming your cdlc/dlc back to something usable.  Ez.pee.z


1.  Put the strange named dlc/cdlc back into the Rocksmith2014/dlc folder.

2.  Fire the latest beta version of CFSM.    Follow screen prompts to select you Rocksmith2014 installation folder and load the song collection.


Now you have two options to rename your collection.


Option A: (recommended)

  • From the CFSM 'Song Manager' tab down towards the bottom right side, click on 'Select All/None'  Make sure all cdlc get selected.
  • From the 'Files' tab dropdown menu select 'Organize ArtistName Subfolder'.  This will rename you cdlc/dlc as Artist_Song_version_p.psarc and put them into seperate Artist folders.
  • From the 'Files' tab dropdown menu select 'Restore CDLC to 'dlc' folder.  This step moves the renamed cdlc back to the 'dlc' folder.
  • All Done


Option B

  • From the 'Renamer' tab menu select any custom naming pattern that you want.
  • Press the button "Rename All Songs".
  • Go get some coffee ... this option takes longer.


Oh, and CFSM will help you to get rid of the duplicates.  Check the 'Duplicates' tab menu.  It would be a good idea to get rid of the duplicates before renaming. 


Report back and let me know how it worked.

One way to find out for sure.  @fabianosan Did you really write this post? Or maybe your account has been taken over by a spambot? Haven't heard from you in long time on CF so this post seems quite strange.
