#272039 Highlighted Fret Markers

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 04 January 2018 - 03:23 AM

I should add there are no open notes at t=20.525 or t=20.731

#272038 Highlighted Fret Markers

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 04 January 2018 - 03:21 AM

Thanks again guys.


Here is what's happening for the first 4 notes according to the XML (as unpacked by the latest toolkit test build).




Maybe I am wrong to trust the unpacked XML.  I noticed every highdensity occurrence in the song is set to 0, which doesn't sound right.

#259732 Trippy Chords/Recognition issues on Mac

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 31 July 2017 - 08:26 PM

Ask the creator to generate song using the latest version of EOF, EOF hotfix, and latest Rocksmith Custom Toolkit.



I take that back.  I just played Tears like Diamonds v1.1 and there was no glitches on my end.

Also played Judy French, no chord glitches there.

Also played Wavezesz, no sliding notes in the intro.


Weird Mac thing maybe?

#256602 CDLC Freeze

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 21 June 2017 - 01:33 AM

In addition to updating tools and repacking, let the toolkit do the wwise conversion for you rather than doing it yourself.


If you get a wwise error in the toolkit, use this version:

#254899 Broken customs

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 01 June 2017 - 05:50 AM

Been away for a while and updated my rocksmith to remasted version only to notice that pretty much all my custom songs (including my own) are not working anymore. 

Can someone tell or point me to a guide, on how to fix these issues so i can at least fix my own songs :)


New dll file needed; old one doesn't work anymore.



#253680 Tutorial for removing tone from someone else's CDLC?

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 16 May 2017 - 06:19 AM

Using the latest beta toolkit



Click IMPORT (at the bottom next to generate) and select the psarc file.

All tones will be listed near the bottom.

If you double click each tone you can change the amps, pedals, volume, etc.

Don't change the tone information name or you may break the custom.

Click GENERATE to save your file with updated tones.

#253432 I'm incapable of producing a custom...

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 13 May 2017 - 02:23 AM

Also, a common issue seen here is using wwise yourself and something messed up along the way.


Did you use wwise yourself (some of the stickies say to do this)  or did you let the toolkit do the wem conversion for you?

#248749 Is there a easier way to space out the notes when making CDLC's

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 16 March 2017 - 06:14 AM

Well, I was wrong about goplayalong "doing it for you".  You still have to sync.  Not sure why anyone would use it, let alone pay money to use it.

#248663 Is there a easier way to space out the notes when making CDLC's

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 15 March 2017 - 12:53 AM

Beat mapping isn't fun, but it is necessary and takes time.  These are good tutorials:





Goplayalong does it for you, but it cost money.  I've never used it but others say it works.



I wouldn't recommend following a tutorial telling you to move guitar notes instead of beats.  If you have more than one arrangement it's a mess, plus the DD creator doesn't like it when you chart that way.  There are other reasons as well.


If you really wanna speed up the process, just sync the start of every section.  If the band plays with a steady tempo you may get lucky and that will be enough to be playable.

#245718 Song Ends Before Starting, But Doesn't Freeze/Crash

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 05 February 2017 - 04:46 AM

I did some forum searching and I can't redistribute wwise on these boards, but you can still download the version that works with the toolkit.  On the wwise download page click "Older Versions".  Unfortunately you have to register on the site, but if you feel uncomfortable giving them your e-mail address just use a throwaway.


Download 2015.1.9 build 5264 (stable) and the autoinstaller will put it on your machine.  You do not have to delete the old version, just point to the right directory in the toolkit (likely C:\Program Files (x86)\Audiokinetic\Wwise v2015.1.9 build 5624).  FYI, I just installed this version and it works on my machine.


Now you will never have to open Wwise again, and you are less likely to make a mistake during the conversion process (a common error when the song doesn't start properly).


I bet that will fix the problem, but if it doesn't we'll go from there.

#245699 Song Ends Before Starting, But Doesn't Freeze/Crash

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 04 February 2017 - 11:29 PM

Yes, I created the .wem files in WWise;

No, there is no preview audio (although, I did make a preview audio file and put it through WWise also);


Yes, I have many other CDLC and all of the ones I've played work perfectly.


No need to use wwise yourself.  The toolkit will build the wem files for you.


Delete your wem files (keep the wav and _preview.wav files) and the toolkit will automate.


In the toolkit CONFIG menu make sure you are pointing towards the wwise directory (probably something like C:\Program Files (x86)\Audiokinetic\Wwise)

#245357 Pearl Jam need fix - Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town

#244820 How to turn up the volume?

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 25 January 2017 - 01:29 AM

It helps to have a generic clean, lead, and distortion tone tied to keys 2, 3 and 4.

Sometimes this will work for a song with little effort.


Also, tone breakers will kill your volume until restarting the game, but there are very few of these.

#244819 How to turn up the volume?

Posted by Rockfirstlast on 25 January 2017 - 01:25 AM

Using the latest Rocksmith Toolkit beta: https://www.rscustom.net/builds


Click import at the bottom


Near SONG INFORMATION there is a volume button.  Move the number closer to 0 to get a higher MUSIC volume (example, change -7 to -4)


At the bottom are tones.  Click each one and raise the (negative) number to increase the GUITAR volume (example, change -20 to -30)


Click Generate to create a new psarc file.


Getting the right volume is trial and error during song creation, you might have to try a few times.
