#6227 Latest EOF releases (2-20-2019)

Posted by raynebc on 26 February 2014 - 05:13 AM

Hi, folks.

I'll be using this thread to maintain the latest versions of EOF in one place. To start, download and extract EOF 1.8RC12:
http://www.mediafire.../eof1.8RC12.zip

You can keep that zip file handy to avoid downloading it more than once. When I release a new hotfix, all you have to do is replace the files from the above zip file with the ones from the hotfix. The latest hotfix (2-20-2019) is here:
http://ignition.cust...of/download/306

*If you use a non QWERTY US English keyboard layout, and keyboard controls/shortcuts aren't working for you, please make a post describing what keyboard shortcuts aren't working, and what the Info panel says the "CODE" and "ASCII" values are after you use each of the keyboard controls in question.

I can make Mac releases and will try to post one with each Windows release, but my ability to do so is sometimes limited. If I don't get around to releasing a Mac build you want, just remind me to do so. The latest Mac build (2-20-2019) is here:
http://ignition.cust...of/download/305
Unless you have oggenc and LAME installed (these don't come with the Mac build for licensing reasons), you won't be able to have EOF automatically convert from MP3 to OGG when you create a new chart. If you have trouble getting those set up on your system, here is a package that should get them installed and usable by EOF:
http://www.t3-i.com/...f_utilities.pkg

Please provide any and all feedback, including bugs and feature requests. If possible, also please review the included documentation (manual, tutorials) and let me know if you find any room for improvement there. Eventually I plan to add a Rocksmith authoring section to the pro guitar tutorial, but the community's knowledge of the Rocksmith songs' makeup changes pretty quickly so it's hard to know when particular features are considered fully known. For any features that ARE fully known (like anchors), please feel free to remind me if they aren't incorporated into EOF yet, in case I missed any information being passed around on this forum or the Google group.

Note: If you are reporting a bug, please specify which hotfix (date) you're using. I release hotfixes on a somewhat random schedule, sometimes more than once per day, so the issue being reported may have been fixed in a release you haven't tried yet.


#76315 Progress.

Posted by Unleashed2k on 03 August 2014 - 01:25 PM

Hey all, I just wanted to let everyone know we're still making huge progress with our future projects. A few things we are working on: Ignition: This is our new front-end we've been working on. It will have all of these functions built in: Search, Requests, an area just for CDLC Creators (tutorials, upload and manage songs, and more). We've been working hard on Ignition and at this moment it's taking up most of our time. Another project we're working on that I would like to announce officially is a Song Manager program for our users. You will be able to finally manage all of your DLC. We'll have more information about this project in the coming months. I personally want to thank all of our staff for making all of this possible, and the community for the continued support.

#248304 Growing Pains

Posted by Unleashed2k on 11 March 2017 - 12:04 PM

As you are fully aware by now CustomsForge was completely down for over 24 hours due to a catastrophic backup failure. We worked with our host (Linode) to resolve this but unfortunately, it took 10 hours to just restore the files. We have a lot of upgrades for CustomsForge and we will be working on adding more fail safes to prevent problems like this happening in the future. As we grow into a bigger website we must evolve, and to do so we must upgrade our forums and ignition. During our upgrades, we ran into several problems, and unfortunately we learned about them days after. We were forced to roll back to a backup we took on March 5th. We still need to do these upgrades but we will be working closely with our board software support staff this time to fix the bug that caused these issues. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to ask us on our discord. We will be attempting these upgrades again, but in a different method which will reduce any future downtime if any problem was to occur again. (Example would be 30-minute downtime~ instead of 24 hours)
 
(p.s. if my wording sounds weird, I've been working on this non-stop for 24 hours trying to get this fixed for you guys, no sleep until I made sure our community is fixed! #exhausting)

#131129 CustomForge's 1 year anniversary.

Posted by Unleashed2k on 17 February 2015 - 10:12 AM

Congratulations everyone! We've made it one year!

 

I picked up rocksmith and started making customs a few months before with a very good friend of mine named Alex (aka Shinyditto12). We decided to team up and make Chevelle, Tool, and Alice in Chains customs together. It was a fun project where we racked up over 100 CDLCs together. You can view our original collaboration document here: http://goo.gl/jM4xte

I decided to make this website when our predecessor went down where I hosted my customs and there was no other custom website to turn to. I was messaged by Ally (not to be confused with my fiancee, Alyx) a friend of ours, at around 6 AM in the morning that the predecessor was no more. I’ve been wanting to run a long-term project for years. I quickly decided to make a new forum/search and invited users over.

I noticed in the Rocksmith Custom community that it could be done so much better, with so many features it was currently lacking. It started with a simple new install of phpbb, donations rolled in, I put in $500 to help jumpstart us. Donations kept rolling in and I used them for domain name, IP Board + Addons License and more. Our community kept growing and I know I created something awesome. @Asmo created the initial integration, then we acquired the skills of @hdnsmbt and merged his project with ours. That’s the beginning story of CustomsForge. Something we all should be proud of.

 

Magfest 2015

A milestone this year was our appearance in the form of a panel about custom songs in music video games. CustomsForge Developer @zerkz represented on the panel, talking about the community, and the process of making customs. You can watch the video here:

 

 

We also had a Rocksmith setup for a few days where people came to jam with us!

Hopefully we will see you there next year!

 

This wouldn’t be possible without you, the community!

All the charters creating songs.
A thank you to our top charters

All the developers for making the tools Editor on Fire & Rocksmith Toolkit

@Asmo and @hdnsmbt for making our search database even possible to begin with.

@McPants for the modern ignition design

Our modteam for keeping the forums/chat clean.

@Attitude, @Izzy, @The Troglodyte, @YLedbetter, @luiza

The Rocksmith Championship team.

Past staff members that helped us (Spades, we miss you!)

@Darjusz & @Lovroman for designing our upcoming song app.

The admins who help with very important decisions and keep everything under control

@Unleashed2k, @BakerBauer, @Asmo, @Teinashu, @hdnsmbt

 

Thank you all once again and today we will like to announce our goals for 2015-2016.

 

Ignition Search + Comments

Our goal is to have ignition use a separate database and comment system. This will still be tied to your username but everything will be handled under ignition. Our ultimate goal is ignition to be the ultimate place for Rocksmith Customs. To learn how to do it with step-by-step guides, to our new request system, and our advanced search features.

 

With ignition you’ll be able to do the following:

  1. Step by step guide on how to create customs. (Ran into a problem? The FAQ Tutorial system will guide you on what to do)

  2. Links to Editor on Fire & Rocksmith Toolkit

  3. Submit requests, view current requests and search requests

  4. Search and filter CDLC in every way you can imagine, upload and edit CDLC you created, view and manage your collection of downloaded CDLC, get notifications on new or updated CDLC

  5. New front-page with charts (top downloads per week, etc)

  6. Comment on new CDLC and get better feedback & more!

 

CustomsForge Song Manager (CFSM)

I’m proud to announce we have made amazing progress with our new desktop app. We plan on releasing a beta test later, and a website to download the application from.

Current features completed:

  1. View all of your custom songs (Artist, Song, Album, Last Updated, Tuning, DD, Arrangements, & CDLC Author

  2. Find duplicate songs. (Have two copies of War Pigs by Black Sabbath?! Find and fix it!)

  3. Launch Rocksmith via the Steam Shortcut built in

  4. Backup your Rocksmith Profile

  5. Export Song List via CSV or BBCode

  6. Search through your CDLC

o3Dda7l.png

(Please note this is an alpha screenshot and will not have to reflect on the final product)

 

More features & a beta release announcement coming soon!

We have additional announcements coming throughout the year, make sure to stay tuned!

 

As always remember to support ubisoft by purchasing official products (Rocksmith 2014, Rocksmith 1 + import, official cord, and any official DLC releases). Thank you ubisoft for making such an awesome game that we all learn and love.

 

Thanks again everyone for making this happen!

#206229 CDLC Orphanage

Posted by Teinashu on 12 March 2016 - 11:52 AM

Say hello to our new CDLC Orphanage.

From now on if we find a download link that is broken and the user hasn't been online for 90+ days.

We'll update the download links and change the charter to CDLC Orphanage.

In the release notes we will make a note of who the original charter is, the date of when the CDLC was put into the orphanage and the member of staff who send the CDLC into the orphanage. 

If the original charter returns he can get the CDLC out of the orphanage without any problems. 
 

CDLC in the orphanage are also up for adoption. If a magna charter want's to adopt one of the songs. just send a message to the member of staff that is named in the release notes and the CDLC will be in your hands.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here.

#236125 Website Status

Posted by Unleashed2k on 05 November 2016 - 07:33 PM

We're aware the website has been slow. After doing an analysis we have found we are under a constant DDoS attack.

We have adjusted some settings on CloudFlare and some additional backend fixes.

I apologize for the slowness and we're working on making CustomsForge even better.




#290348 CustomsForge August Update | Newsletter (Issue 1)

Posted by Unleashed2k on 22 August 2018 - 04:09 PM

CustomsForge Newsletter (Issue 1 | Aug 2018)

 

Hey all,

 

I apologize for the late response I've been working my ass off at a few temporary jobs.
Thank you for reading this update! I'm going to discuss a few things here:

 

DDoS Attack & Discord Raid

Lately, we've been targeted via Discord "raids" (where bots spam our discord) and DDoS attacks.

 

Our amazing team of Administrators and Moderators have been keeping an eye on this and have been resolving these issues as they occur. Unfortunately, I don't know why we are being targeted.
We will keep an eye on this and work on fixing it asap.

 

Accidental Suspension
The website was down a couple days ago due to our server company accidentally suspended our servers for 'late payment' even though it's not due until the end of the month. We reached out to them and corrected this. To make sure it doesn't happen again we're setting up a new donation goal to get it paid off asap.

 

Donation Goal

You can donate via http://customsforge....th-august-goal/
Any amount helps, thank you!

 

Advertisements

We ran a test of the new google ads and saw it was extremely annoying on multiple areas of the website. We've reverted those and are solely using Sovrn for now. If you could whitelist us on your browser it would help a lot!

 

Developer Update

The current progress of the rewrite has slowed down but I plan on making sure we speed things up again even if that includes getting more front-end developers on board to help assist. 

 

Rule Update on Covers

We've updated our rule for CDLC covers of DLC, more info here: 

http://customsforge....pdated-rule-4/ 

 

Merch

We currently have two stores. One store is for US Customers, and the other store is for international.

All of that info is here: http://customsforge....ng/#entry288261

The US store is shirts only, and the international store also ships to the US but has other things like bags, stickers, etc.

 

Updates via Newsletter

I plan on creating a monthly update newsletter soon to provide updates on the website, featured CDLC, and more! I'll have more info on this soon as we work on it. The newsletter will still be posted in this section as well. 

I am considering this issue 1 of the newsletter and we will add more to it in the future. 

 

Thanks for reading this update and we're working hard on bringing more features to the website! 

Keep rockin! \m/

#109529 Latest Update (11/29/14)

Posted by Unleashed2k on 29 November 2014 - 10:39 PM

Happy Holidays!

Before I begin with the announcements/news I want to congratulate all of our users for hitting over 100,000 posts.

Additionally we're near to hitting 9,500 songs which is a huge milestone. We're close to hitting 60,000 users.

Let's start this off with an update on Ignition.

 

If you're not aware already we've been working on Search 3 (aka Ignition) for awhile now. We've dedicated ourselves to this project and want to bring everyone the greatest search engine for songs.

 

As of today I want to announce that all Magna Charters will be able to beta test the new search soon. 

After we receive enough feedback and fix any search-breaking bugs we can release it to everyone.

 

Changelog update for Search 2 to Search 3:

Please note some of these features may not be included in the beta and released in the future

Features not included but are currently being worked on:

Introducing our new front page, the Ignition dashboard. This is a work in progress concept that will feature the latest Rocksmith news.

Additionally on the left it will display search statistics (that you can set which ones you want) such as Newest CDLC, Recently Updated, Most Downloaded, Top Requests, Newly Fulfilled Requests & Latest Topics.

A forum link that goes to the forums is displayed on the main navigation

 

Requests:
We're in the process of making requests integrated into the same theme for Ignition. We will release more information in the future.

 

Creators:

Creators is another work-in-progress project where users can manage the CDLC they have created. A wiki will be provided where users can provide guides & documentation.

We've recently acquired http://rocksmithcust...wikispaces.com/and will intergrate this for everyone to use.

Additionally links are provided to go to rocksmith toolkit & editor on fire.

 

Search: 

Here are some screenshots. Please note nothing you see is final and there will be multiple themes released in the future.

Mobile:

Overview of features:
Main search rewritten from scratch.
A dedicated area for showing new song updates.

Record Overlay displays information about the song before you download. You can also view comments without leaving the page.

Mobile friendly search. Out and about? Want to check & save songs to download for later? This is all possible now.

Add songs to collection. This allows you to manage the CDLC you have downloaded and it will show any updates.

An alternative way to search by using our "browse" feature. View songs grouped by Artists, Albums, Tuning, Member, Added, Updated.

Artist view. This is a current feature in search2 ported over.
Better filters & search settings.

An updated "2014-2015" design which looks and uses modern techniques.

& plenty of more features.

 

We're also working on improving the forums to bring a better experience. This will happen next year.

There are plenty of more announcements in the future

I hope you're looking forward to the future of CustomsForge. We're nearing our 1 year anniversary and I'm excited to see the future changes of our website.

 

Please remember to donate so we can keep this website up. All donations are used for servers, development work, script renewals, and any additional services we use such as Teamspeak.

 

 




#1173 Welcome everyone! Please Read!

Posted by Unleashed2k on 17 February 2014 - 05:31 PM

Hello everyone!

I wanted to say thanks to everyone who's supported us so far. 

First off I wanted to explain what your donations was used for.
The negatives are what I've purchased. The websites domain for $15 and the IP.Board & IP.Download system for $225

I have [color=rgb(51,51,51);font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:16px;font-weight:bold;]$142.93 [/color][color=rgb(117,117,117);font-size:.63em;font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-weight:bold;]USD [/color]Left in paypal and I plan to let all users know where their money went. I will not pocket any of this money as it will be used for this website only.

Edit:
I've moved the transactions list to Google Spreadsheet.
Please view it here: https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing

 

Thank you SO much to everyone.

Okay now, for the future of the website I have a few things in motion.

1) We will most likely use http://rscdlc.com/ for our DLC system. We will modify it to make it better.
2) We will use IP.Downloads for our file system. You can do EVERYTHING you dreamed it. 
Some of the features: 

- It counts every download

- Searchable fields (Title, Artist, etc)

- NOTIFICATIONS for file updates. This is a huge update I'm looking forward to. No longer have to deal with outdated CDLC.

- Report broken file downloads to the CDLC creator

& More!

3) We are actively working with PHP developers to upgrade to our new CDLC system. 

4) We are looking into hiring a Skin designer to design a professional dark-themed type skin. (Possibly a white one too).

Please note this will take some time but I'm hoping to get all of this in motion within the week. I'd like to have everything up and running soon so we can have an awesome community with awesome CDLC.

 

I also want to give thanks for my wife, Ally who has been here since the morning helping me out with everything. 

 

I'm looking forward to working with everyone to create the ultimate CDLC website.




#266944 Patreon & Future of CF

Posted by Unleashed2k on 25 October 2017 - 11:34 AM

Hey everyone,

 

I wanted to let everyone know I recently lost my job at the company I've been working for over 3 years. Long story short I did receive a letter of recommendation from them so I will be looking for a new job.

In the meantime I an unable to support extra costs here as my income is very little next to nothing now. Therefore I must increase the goal (by $100) to cover what I donate towards the site monthly.

 

It has been highly requested before but today I am proud to announce that I have launched a personal Patreon for CustomsForge - https://www.patreon.com/CustomsForge

 

This supports my efforts and I'll be able to get improvements on the website done and released within weeks vs several months.

Additionally, I will be streaming a lot more once I get a decent schedule put together. We will do giveaways and more.

 

My plan is to relaunch CustomsForge with better features and better support. 

Thank you for your continued support and I want everyone to keep shredding. \m/

 

- Mark Beeson

#16585 Removed CDLC Notice!

Posted by RobotMonster on 17 March 2014 - 07:03 AM

I don't want to start a flame war, but this does seem a bit precious to me.

It's not like the charters wrote the songs or played in the recordings, and often they've used tabs created by others.

Yes charters put a lot of work into making CDLCs, but I don't think there should be a problem with making available a CDLC made by someone who isn't on this website, unless you're also going to prevent CDLC that wasn't uploaded by the rights-holders of the actual song!

The 'original charter' should be given credit out of politeness, but the idea that a CDLC is "owned" by the creator seems at odds with the fact that the "creator" doesn't own most of the content of the CDLC, and it's all provided as a gift to the community for educational purposes.

 

The administrators of the website can obviously dictate whatever rules they wish, as its their website, but this does seem oddly inconsistent to me.




#120584 Customsforge is going to MAGfest!

Posted by zerkz on 11 January 2015 - 12:49 PM

Ello community!

I'm pretty happy to announce that Customsforge has been asked to participate at MAGFest 2015, a music and gaming festival in Baltimore/National Harbor, MD. 
magfest-logo.pnghttp://magfest.org/
I will be going to represent us in the form of participating in a panel, and hosting a Rocksmith stand/booth where I plan on showcasing all the best Customsforge hosted CDLC's that we have to offer!

More details to come, but for now, I ask the community to recommend the highest quality CDLCs you have played or created! I am very open to all genres, as long as they are high quality, and do not cause dead tones/crash. I also recommend that they have DD, but it is not a requirement.  If you have a recommendation, please send me a private message (with a download link the PC psarc)!

If you live in the area, please come out and support us/have fun!

NOTE: This trip/event is being fully funded by myself, personally. All of your donations are still being used for site upkeep/server costs. 



 




#22080 3/27/2014 Update

Posted by Unleashed2k on 27 March 2014 - 09:50 PM

Hello all, 

 

On a personal note I have my 25th birthday coming up April 1st (April Foolsday), and I just got a new job last week so my life has been busy.

I have not however been forgetting about CF at all, we have active developers working on future versions of search.

 

I'm proud to announce we almost have 2,300 CDLC's.  New features for our search: You can now "Follow" a post and receive updates when someone updates their CDLC. 

(You can check your settings here: http://customsforge....a=notifications [Under pages > Notification method for new versions of songs ]

 

I'm also happy to officially announce we've been working on Search3 (codename: "Ignition")

We have tons of new features that everyone will be excited about. Our developers are working hard on bringing you all of the features you want. Thank you everyone who's been supporting us, your donations help keep everything going. 

I understand it's a bit expensive right now but once major development done we should be able to have everything under $200 a month (not including IP. Board license renewals) We will have more updates in the future and thank you everyone for your support.   




#211816 IgnitionFUSE™ Alpha Preview

Posted by Unleashed2k on 18 April 2016 - 06:25 PM

IgnitionFUSE™ Alpha Preview

 

We're getting closer and closer to an alpha build for our complete rewrite of Ignition.

 

Once internal testing is done and we're finished polishing FUSE we will release a public beta.

 

As a gift for being so patient here is a preview of our current build:

Please note anything can change and what you're seeing is definitely not final:

 

 

 

Noticeable features/notes:

  • The homepage will be rewritten before our beta to include the news along with stats on the right (or left) side. 
  • Subscribe to the Artist and/or Album
  • Unlimited Preferred Artists
  • New notification system on the bottom and loading screen
  • Speed increased
  • Tons of new themes to choose from. Style Ignition the way you like it.
  • Follow Users (not shown)
  • Requests built into Ignition. 
    And many other features not shown here. 

We're working hard so thank you for being apart of this community and supporting us. We love playing Rocksmith and can't wait to see what's in store for the future.

EDIT:

I wanted to mention we added the Last.FM API and we're working with a spotify developer to integrate spotify features (that can be enabled/disabled as some users do not like spotify)




#44007 3 Month Anniversary!

Posted by Teinashu on 13 May 2014 - 09:34 AM

This coming Saturday is our 3 month anniversary!  

Today we have reached 25K members and 4K CDLC! We of the staff want to thank you for supporting us.

 

Thanks to you this is becoming a great community! Also thanks to all the developers working hard to create such a great site. More thanks to the developers of EoF and the Toolkit for making CDLC possible!

 

And at last. A big thank you to Unleashed for creating this forum.  




#223095 Internal IgnitionFUSE testing has begun.

Posted by Unleashed2k on 01 August 2016 - 06:48 PM

Hey all,

I wanted to update everyone to let you know that we're begun testing the next version of CustomsForge. This includes forum updates & ignition updates. Our first phase is internal testing between the developers only, then the rest of the staff. Once it reaches a point we might try an invite system. We will be sending out invites to popular users on here for their opinions and tweak the system to everyone's constructive criticism. I can't wait to share the future of CF with you all.

- Mark
