  1. @coolAF That's possible. I had the same problem, but when I redownloaded the patch and applied it, the problem was solved. Go figure. I recommend running the patch command, not doing it by hand, though. I do it through Terminal, but it seems to work if you just double-click it in your Finder window too. Here's how I did it in Terminal (obviously, you need to replace my 'kfeuerherm' with your ID ('ls' lists the files, I do that to be sure of what's there; in the next line, don't forget the dot at the beginning, that means 'here'): HTH. BTW the patch is at https://drive.google.com
  2. @coolAF Did you remember to rerun the patch? It sounds like an unpatched version....
  3. EDIT: SEE BELOW @FfioThe game was freshly downloaded before this, but I tried anyway, as you showed. Once I revalidated (it had 6 bad files) it ran, but when I got out, applied the patch, it crashed again. Tried it once more, this time one invalid file (??) but after the patch, crash. Maybe I have an outdated patch? Haven't had to patch in ages... macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 /Users/kfeuerherm/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Rocksmith2014/Rocksmith2014.app/Contents/MacOS/Rocksmith2014 (Sorry I can't for the life of me get the imgur to display here. Help?)
  4. Well, I just did the patch... and it no longer loads... Any idea what I haven't done right? https://imgur.com/j16ikzT (insert image from URL doesn't seem to work? Been here before, but been a while...)
  5. @firaty Thanks for that. Thanks to my great luck, I've never had a circle of anyone who plays musical instruments, so RS has been my only band ever. I actually just found a drummer et al. who lives not 20 mins from here who is happy to get together with me and jam (bonus!) but of course, now with COVID we can't. It's a conspiracy....!
  6. @firaty I was wondering about that so maybe mine will be fine too, once I get around to that...!! (You are using Big Sur, now, right? A bit confusing because your paste says Mojave...)
  7. Hmm. How do I know whether I have the Beta or full version? I checked properties in Steam, don't see anything obvious.... (Side issue: I've never had Cherub Rock, I've always recoded everything to something I do have. Is there a problem with that? Everything has worked since the beginning... well, until now, of course.) EDIT: @firaty You had me worried, there....
  8. Just a quick note to confirm that I got it going, though it did take a few steps, as follows: instal the beta (go to Rocksmith in Steam and it shows up there) I discovered that I was past the white screen problem, but I could not type in the search box, among other things, so I followed the bullet points at https://forums.ubisoft.com/showthread.php/2302103-Rocksmith-and-the-Big-Sur-Update-for-MacOS. This was not altogether straightforward as there was in fact no entry for me under Accessibility, so I created one. That got me past the problem with the search box, but I was n
  9. @firekornThanks for the note, I'll check it out. I just got one more response from Ubisoft, which I was just about to post. Here's what they say, FWIW:
  10. Last update until/unless something changes. Ubisoft has said: which I guess basically means "wait, out." So we wait. I will check on the game and ping them every so often, maybe weekly, see what's up. Incidentally, I'm not sure the search engine for the forums works here, because searching any combination of "Big Sur" turns up nothing. Unless of course it eliminates my own contributions and I'm the only one who has said anything....
  11. I got the next reply from Ubisoft today. They offered no further help and just repeated that they were looking into it. Since it said they’d close the case if I didn’t reply within four days, I replied with no further information also, just to keep the ticket open. I guess we’re just going to play tag for a while. At the moment, Ubisoft is ‘it’.
  12. @actionjackson764 I've received the first response from Ubisoft support. As expected, we have to wade through the baloney steps first, but that's a start. Here's what I was asked to do: I didn't expect much to happen, particularly as I'd already purged and re-downloaded, but hey, go through the motions so that I can respond. In any case, it came back as fully verified. Note, btw, that in step number 3 they seem to have Mac and Windows backwards and in step #5 it actually says "game files" I will continue to post updates in the hope that this may be of use to
  13. @actionjackson764 Thanks for the response. Going back to Catalina isn't really an option for a number of reasons, but I discovered after not being able to do it in the past that I could get RS running under Windows 10 and Parallels VM as long as I replied "Always allow" to the security question. Not great, but at least can play the official stuff for now. The irony is, this is my personal machine which I use for work, since the university-provided Windows craptop is ... well ... a craptop. But given the toolkit issues, I may gradually move my CDLC to Windows on the work machine, whic
  14. Hoping this is the correct place to ask this.... I haven't used RS2014 in a month or two, so not sure, but I upgraded my Mac to Big Sur last week and I just now notice that RS comes up with audio only and a white screen. I get the impression searching the net that this is pretty much the state of affairs at the moment: not compatible. Can other Mac users confirm/deny or have a fix? Thanks PS I have a ticket in a Ubisoft. If/when I get a response, I'll advise here.
  15. Ok. I changed nothing from before except that I used the Improver. I will not worry about it too much for now. I also have a bit of a timing issue in some places (having a hard time getting the precision right in some places) but I think I will do the lead part next, because it might be easier to fix the timing there. (I assume that I can adjust the time map in the lead section and that it will adjust the notes in the bass section too if I do that?)
