  1. 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
  2. @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 kno
  3. @GetTheLedOut Back to square one. Today, that solution isn't working either.
  4. So far, besides not paying attention to what I've said, they've suggested changing the cable (and I reminded them that it works fine on the Mac, so it's not the cable). So then they turned around and suggested I switch guitars to see what happens. I'm asking what the point of that is, because I'm playing a bass. It doesn't really help if it works with the Strat, and I want to play the bass.... Let's see whether they have an intelligent answer. Again, not holding breath.
  5. @GetTheLedOutUpdate: I do have an Apple USB-C to USB-A/HDMI/USB-C adapter, actually, so I tried that. No good. Mind you, I don't trust it that much, I've had issues in the past on the Mac so that probably doesn't prove much.... On the other hand... it just WORKED with the USB-C to USB-A Apple adapter AND the USB hub. Now, once doesn't prove anything, but let's see. I'm not going to tell UBISoft because I'd really like an explanation of what the issue is. But I'm not holding my breath... !!
  6. @tdchewyWell, that's how I did it originally, and it did not work. The various experts in the Discord support said it's almost always about power, use a hub. So I did, I used the one I have, and it worked... once. Once only. @GetTheLedOut I did not try the USB-C as I had been told that is guaranteed not to work (and I don't have an adapter of that kind) but it's worth a try. Thanks. At the moment, I'm going through the motions with Ubisoft, who never read what you answer... if you say you tried all their steps they ask did you try all their steps, etc. Sigh. Thanks, folks. Onwar
  7. I bought a new Dell G5 PC (now about 2 months old) mainly for the purpose of porting leisure activities from my Mac, and a large part of that is RS. Problem is, it won't work: it doesn't seem to know that the cable is plugged in. I understand that this is often a power issue. I tried all the ports (legacy style and new, to the extent that they fit the cable USB end directly), no dice. Plugged in a StarTech USB powered hub (ST4240USB), no dice. Until I used a specific port, closest to the power adapter input. Great! Then, tried to play the other day, no hardware changes... no dic
  8. @dclark5150@lichka001 You can do it as a batch using Custom Mods within CustomsForge Song Manager (see the Tools tab for download at the top of this page). Or, individually using DLC Builder (link found in the tutorial under the Create CDLC tab) or RSToolkit (also in the Tools tab).
  9. @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
  10. @coolAF Did you remember to rerun the patch? It sounds like an unpatched version....
  11. 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?)
  12. 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...)
  13. @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....!
  14. @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...)
  15. 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....
