  1. I have more: Operation Ivy - Sound System Reel Big Fish - S.R. Big D And The Kids Table - Shining On Big D And The Kids Table - Describing The Sky and Western Special ska-jazz tracks Check out ska tag: http://customsforge.com/tags/ccs/ska/?search_app_filters[ccs][searchInKey]=database_3 Somebody did Reel Big Fish - Beer and other tracks, also Operation Ivy (never played them)
  2. I added other chord notes as ghost notes and EOF imported a handshape. Is there a way to import arpeggio heading too? edit: It's not a handshape, just all the notes appearing on fretboard. It would be nice though.
  3. Any idea how I can add arpeggios and still keep fixing and reimporting tab?
  4. Don't use old toolkits ( included) for capo arrangements, it seems that the latest unaffected version is automatic development build (since end of April). There is at least one affected song so it would be nice if admins could notificate all charters with capo arrangements to check them and rebuild. Until then it should be possible to fix them with platform conversion or by repacking with SNG update. Details on the issue: http://customsforge.com/topic/5030-capo-chord-support/page-2
  5. Well, I do what I wrote in the tutorial: http://customsforge.com/topic/856-tutorial-for-proper-gp-tab-sync-sectionphrase-authoring-and-more/ and I have use some scripts for rebuild and tone switching (requires custom toolkit version). I find it to be very efficient but there is only so much a tool can do for you and I got stuck on creating tabs... @@ice9 there was some discussion on where can we co with TuxGuitar but I'm not a Java programmer and wasn't particularly motivated to proceed since I already can do anything I want to outside of EOF. I was able to build latest version with GPX import from source on Linux and Windows which was definitely tricky for non-Java programmer so I can help with that... There was also some Python code done by xavatar, see http://customsforge.com/topic/1599-scripts-for-rocksmith/
  6. Unfortunately I have no idea, I mostly play on repeat in riff repeater but there's a lot of contenders, probably Western Special - Departure (lead) and Disonaur - Space Ostrich (lead), I play those like 10 times in a row... More songs for anyone interested:
  7. No rush. I have a change in my repository that should fix MIDI values: https://github.com/otaznik/rocksmith-custom-song-toolkit@@raynebc XML is fine, nothing needs to be changed. It seems RS adjusts single notes in runtime but they depend on included MIDI values for chords.

I think wrong MIDI values will be generated BTW as far as we know only SNG data matters, JSON manifest is probably used for chord book
  9. I think so, chord template and hand shape adjusted to capo and chord notes with true fret values.
  10. Good, so it should work. What needs to be done is to author same chord which appears in official song and then compare original and custom SNG, particularly chord template and hand shape data
  11. If there is official song with such chords and it works then it's not Rocksmith bug and it can be inspected for how it's supposed to look like. There was issue with open string sustains with capo but they fixed it a long time ago. Maybe @@Maveth can look at it.
  12. I just wanted to suggest "How Music Works with Howard Goodall", it's a great documentary for anyone who want to start looking into music theory (and to anyone else who is just curious, really). Didn't find a better place than this to put it to. I remember watching it on youtube and then downloading DVD and watching it again. I had very little knowledge from childhood, little knowledge from ~5 years back when I started and it really paints a good overall picture about building blocks of contemporary western music (including my favourite - syncopation). I don't think I need to convince any of you to watch it... Parts: [*]Melody [*]Rhythm [*]Harmony [*]Bass I think above has audio disabled on copyright grounds, here's at least first part which works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myNHc6EmjbU
  13. You cover just half of the cases, chart can start before or after time 0:00, it all depends on how much silence you have in audio, what is the BPM and how many empty measures are in tab. Chance of measure 1 falling on 0:00 is pretty much non-existant, all syncs are affected and out of sync in EOF (right up to the first link).I'm worried about changing measure numbers, mainly I don't understand how (with GPA and GP import being totally independent) you can import tab afterwards. I'm going to assume you tested this enough when you decided to do this change instead of warning.
  14. I can still recall the confusion when I first seen a tab quite a few years ago so I guess you're not acquainted with tabs if you ask this. It has some practical sense to it, you need to reach all the way to last line to play "red" string. That said, I don't think it's really important until chords come into play, that's where it helps if you have the "inverted" mental image and you don't want to re-learn or diverge from tabs or chord diagrams. Not a big deal though, it's not like you're going to be perfectly sight-reading either way (some experienced players still like to use RS order). From the pragmatic viewpoint it's better to use "inverted" so it's easier to read tabs.
  15. In MIDI staccato seems to be shortening to half duration so "without sustain" applies only to staccato quarter notes, staccato half notes would be still be quarters (with sustain).I have a tab with palm muted 3/4 note so if it works well in RS I will want to keep that sustain. I compile my own EOF so I can always change it to do whatever suits me best...
  16. Better than it is now, but I'm not sure about those palm mutes. I will have to finish the tab first and see if PM sustains are usable.
  17. In this case arguably you can ignore the sustains so it's just a matter of misleading chart, but those sustains were not fun or easy to play if you followed it. I think staccato is very handy for enforcing single note import but you can cut the duration in half (this seems to be the MIDI interpretation) and then assess if it should be a short note (in my case it would have the same effect). I just think something should happen, full duration is clearly incorrect. Most of the time I shorten palm mutes but recently I came across a few that ring out pretty long. It depends on how heavy muting you do. I wouldn't force PMs always as single notes unless it is some kind of project preference.
  18. I have that preference so that works for me. Maybe you can set constant duration instead, I don't know.
  19. As it turns out, the dotted note I was mentioning was another kind of dot: diff --git a/src/gp_import.c b/src/gp_import.cindex 017d976..777f9a0 100644--- a/src/gp_import.c+++ b/src/gp_import.c@@ -3611,6 +3611,7 @@ struct eof_guitar_pro_struct *eof_load_gp(const char * fn, char *undo_made) } if(byte2 & 1) { //Note played staccato+ note_is_short = 1; } if(byte2 & 2) { //Palm mute
  20. You resumed converting, great! Any ETA on Respect?
  21. See? You have no idea what I'm saying, I use EOF only for GP to XML conversion. You can only make something that is on par with EOF at best and I don't need another tool to do that, sorry. It has no potential of advancement, only workarounds for RS features stuffed into text markers, no thanks.
  22. I never said there is not enough info, it just wouldn't be any better that what there already is, actually probably worse since you can't leverage advanced EOF features even if you wanted to. Well, I mentioned quite a few already. Of the top of my head: per-arrangement tone switching, phrases and sections, chord fingering, arpeggio outlines or hand positions if you want to. There is no place for any of these in GP format. And I'm sure somebody who edits charts in EoF manually could come up with more examples of stuff that can't be put into tab. Maybe you should just spend some time charting before you waste your time on this. You do what you want but it would be useless for me.
  23. It won't be easier than what is available now, I can just as well create empty EOF project and import GPA & GP, this part doesn't bother me. What bothers me is that I need separate tabs and projects for all arrangements which just keep diverging when I fix them, it bothers me that there are RS features and techniques which are not supported in GP tab, it bothers me that I lose chord fingering with every import (also something that you'll lose without EOF). Having to reimport notes into project is just a minor nuissance, I can do that with a few keypresses, but your version isn't going to help much with anything else. All this additional information need to be added to the tab and there is no place in GP format other than stuffing everything in the text markers, not nice (I don't even know what is the limit for these, probably 255 characters).
