  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. Well, you'll see if it imports correctly, mostly it should work. Unwinding repeats is useful also for phrase/section markers and because real songs tend to do variations. Fixing multiple identical sections by copy-pasting is also easy so there's no huge reason to keep them. I really don't remeber, it might even be corrupting EOF or maybe that was another bug. Anyway it's better to resave as GP4/GP5 to avoid issues. ok - thanks! yeah i normally would copy-paste the sections but I somehow just looked at the gp-file in GPA and there the repeats were not visible... so I started syncing and r

  4. 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.
  5. Any idea how I can add arpeggios and still keep fixing and reimporting tab?
  6. Don't use old toolkits (2.6.0.0 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
  7. You shouldn't be relying on that even if it looks quite right, even little change in consistency can throw you off in Rocksmith.
  8. 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
  9. 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:
  10. 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
  12. I think so, chord template and hand shape adjusted to capo and chord notes with true fret values.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. I use Go PlayAlong to anchor empty measures first (I always use track that will work well with RS, that is I add some initial silence beforehand), then I go through the song and fill the void. I'm not very good so figuring out what is being played takes a lot of time. I always go to the GPA track sync so I can match note ending and adjust note lengths accordingly, so at least that's easy.Even with this help I have some transcriptions where I'm stuck.
  16. The gpax and the folder with the song and the tab is there, but no .xml, and stucks like this http://i59.tinypic.com/2ez4dh2.jpg Check if there are spaces in front of artist or songbook name.
  17. 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 o
  18. 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.
  19. 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).
  20. 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...
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. I have that preference so that works for me. Maybe you can set constant duration instead, I don't know.
