  1. In general, the answer to that is that CustomsForge encourages members to support Ubisoft/Rocksmith, i.e.,, if the song existed officially etc., can't be offered as a CDLC, and by extension I think you can take it that you won't get any assistance in trying to bypass having a legitimate copy of the software via Steam. (If I've misunderstood the question, I apologize, and of course I don't speak for "CustomsForge" as such, but that would be my take based on my understanding of the situation.)
  2. Ok, got it! I downloaded the GP version. It’s the short version of the song rather than the long (which I have) but I expect I should be able to patch it. No worries and thanks for the response! (And I see there are officials of some of the other ones I want to do!)
  3. I am just curious how these are selected? I ask because I was looking for a gp tab for Animals Sky Pilot and there is one on UG but not in the downloads. (Not a critique at all! Just asking )
  4. @ sidekick95 As far as I understand, it won't ever. I have a PS4 and I've moved to Steam on PC or Mac now.
  5. No worries! Eternally (well, close...) grateful
  6. Just discovered this the other day while working on my first CDLC. Great stuff, thanks! I think, though, that the password for May and June are different?
  7. I’m wondering, has the format for the first set of instructions changed? Don’t see any number 12, 17, 25... just bullet points; unless this is a reference to something else? thanks!
  8. Just tried to add to collection and download using Firefox, first on Mac, then on PC. In both cases, I get told the item is added to the collection and I get the checkmark, but in neither case is anything downloaded. I seem to only be able to download directly from the record page. Very inconvenient as going back destroys the search and sort previously done.... I see no pop-up blocker message, either (someone suggested on discord that might be an issue). Also, cntrl/command-click doesn't download anything either...? UPDATE: It turns out that it was a pop-up issue, even though Firefox wasn't giving a warning. When I logged this site specifically as authorized to open pop-ups, it worked fine. HTH.
  9. FINAL UPDATE (I think): my new powered hub came in. Plugged in the original (problematic) RS cable, driver failed. So seems like this cable is marginal, assuming I didn't get a faulty powered hub (this could go on forever at that rate). Whether that's because cables have poor quality control or because it's been slightly damaged (possible, I roll over it from time to time despite best efforts), I'm going to leave it at that. The other cable works, and the Steinberg solution works, so I'm good to go one way or the other. Still, this whole business could be helpful to someone else down the road.
  10. UPDATE: I got an invite to RS+ beta and based on the info which I had, needed to use the RS cable and the PC (no Mac platform and my iPhone is not supported, too old). Crap.... So I hunted around for my older RS cable which I hadn't been able to find until now, and found it. Amazingly, it did work with the PC, even though it's a cable whose 1/4" jack I had replaced at one point (so you'd think it would be less reliable!). So I have a working cable... and it turns out that RS+ supports ASIO and I was able to get the Steinberg box working with it, so ended up not needing the cable. Discovered all this shortly after ordering a new powered hub....!! But it's ok, I can use it for something else. Moral of the story: apparently the first cable is somehow borderline. Sounds like with a given cable it could end up being a crapshoot....
  11. I believe I’ve tried that already or else it doesn’t work that way in my version of windows… but happy to check it tomorrow. thanks for the tip! UPDATE: @XellotI read in haste and so the 'version of Windows' is inapplicable, I was thinking of the lower right sound icon. In any case: there's nothing under Audio Inputs and Outputs that I can see of relevance (Stereo Mix Realtek Audio and the monitor which supposedly has sound output but never did). Sound, Video, and Game Controllers is where I have been deleting the cable and when I reboot I'm no farther ahead.
  12. For anyone else looking for a solution: My Dell order came in and I got the wrong hub (not powered) so I couldn't test that. But someone at the RS+ event misunderstood something I said which ended up being fortuate.... I installed the DLL files from https://github.com/mdias/rs_asio and used one of the sample configurations files for Steinberg UR22, then moved my Steinberg UR22 mkII to the Dell, installed its driver, plugged the headphones into the Steinberg, and bingo! problem solved. Not only that, but now I can boost the gain, which RS *always* complained about. Good solution, if you can afford the hardware. There are plenty of analogue-to-digital boxes out there which will work (see the github site for a list). No more RS cable dependence!!!
  13. Hi Thanks for the suggestions. No,no separate driver. Windows configured it on its own. No cable extension either. As for ports, the two times it worked it was front ports, but I had tried the back ones too :( and once it was front USB-A and once front USB-C. I have a new adapter and hub coming from Dell, should be here in a couple if days. Will report back then. Appreciate the support!
  14. Ubisoft have just washed their hands of this. They're now saying that if the cable is USB 3 and my ports are all USB 2 then they can't help me. Well, my ports AREN'T all USB 2 (as I've said multiple times, I've listed them alll!!) and I don't know anything about the cable, whether there are different types of not... I just ordered a new hub with Dell rewards dollars, should be here next week, and a USB-C to A adapter along with it. Somewhere i have another RS cable where I replaced the jack as it got damaged, just can't find it right now.... (I only saw your message after I made that order, but it didn't cost me any real money so it's a free option.) The other thing I can do is buy a new cable, but, as I say, it works on the Mac. Last resort is to play on the Mac... what a waste to have bought a new system. I can also try pestering Dell and see what they say.... EDIT: and I just realized they've got me so wound up with their illogic that a new cable won't solve anything, it's a DRIVER ISSUE... sigh!!! I'll look into ther links you offered. I do appreciate the help. I'm surprised so few people are offering any advice. Surely we're not the only two people with this issue....!!!
  15. @GetTheLedOut No, that's just it. Most of the time (with two exceptions) it comes up as Rocksmith USB Guitar Adapter and then after two seconds gets flagged error 10 can't start; the other half of the time it comes up as USB Audio Device and gets flagged. (And twice it worked, as you know). I have nothing else on the system except mouse. Not even a keyboard (using bluetooth keyboard). (Oh except for headphones in the headphone jack.) I understand it's likely a power issue; that's why I used the hub. So so far, I've NEVER managed without the hub, and only twice with it, so hard to know whether the hub is actually doing anything or maybe semi-functional.... Come July 1st I'll have budget to buy a new hub (which I would need anyway) so I can test that further. In the mean time, RS have now asked me to send a DX Diag file with the game running. So maybe we're getting somewhere. (Hold breath?) Thanks for the continued advice.
