  1. Happy Birthday dalenichol!

  2. Happy Birthday dalenichol!

  3. They can't get rid of that branding for legal reason. They already said that they made it as small as legally possible on the logo for the remastered, going further or getting rid of it entirely would just put them in a legal mess. Ah, I didn't know that! That's a shame, but such is life.
  4. I think, if anything, all they would need is another big update, much like the transition from 2014 to Remastered. Remove the 2014 branding, but continue to support the current product through bigger changes and bug fixes, negating the cost of developing an entire new product. They know about the community and what we've done for the game, that the twitch streamers and what have you rely on ODLC and CDLC, and it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to put out an entire new game just yet. I don't see RS going anywhere, any time soon and that can only be a good thing.

  7. Cheers for the input, folks, I'll have a mess around
  8. Thanks buddy, I'll see what I can figure out. I had a wee read in the Rocksmith Championships thread and it's most likely the guage of my strings. Ah well, such is life
  9. Hey guys, apologies if this is the wrong place to post this. I've noticed an issue since switching back to playing Bass for the first time in years, and the first time with Rocksmith. Playing along on Standard or Drop D tuning is fine, but as soon as I go lower than that, Eb/DdropC etc, rocksmith struggles, or sometimes simply refuses to pick up certain notes. It's almost completely limited to the 'E' string and is particularly bad when played open, or along the first 3 frets. The problem does not persist when using guitar rig or any non rocksmith software, so I'm a little confuse
  10. Thanks, Papillon, I appreciate you taking the time to respond. I'm taking all of the advice I'm getting on board, that's for sure. I think the one thing I've learned is that I simply enjoy bass more than I enjoy guitar. Just annoyed that it took me years of trying to play something else to realise that!
  11. At the end of the day, if we get enjoyment out of it, then who cares, eh? For me, with the issues of wrist pain and a general lack of progress, I simply wasn't getting that enjoyment out of the guitar, then, thankfully, last Saturday night one of my strings snapped. Dismayed, knowing that the shops weren't open yesterday, I decided to use Rocksmith and my guitar to emulate bass, and everything that I'd been missing from the enjoyment came flooding back to me. I've spent at least 2 hours every day since playing bass on the guitar and then today I went to the local pawn shop and picked up
  12. I can definitely understand that, yeah. I think the problem for me was that I had it in my head that I needed to learn guitar, that somehow I'd be more creative and then I'd suddenly be this great guitarist, doing all this really cool stuff, and then I'd join a band and the rest would be history... And then I realised that I actually preferred both learning and practicing Bass and got really annoyed with myself because I'd completely neglected it for about 8 years. If I'd spent those 8 years playing and learning bass like I should've, who knows how good I could be now.
  13. After all of this, I decided 'fuck it', and I've since gone back to my first love: Bass. No wrist pain, no stiffness and it's all coming back to me nice and easy. I wish Rocksmith had been around when I'd first started playing bass.
  14. Thanks for this reply. It's DeQuervaine's that the doctor thought I might have when I described the pain and the issue to him and I have been given two separate courses of steroids to try and fix the issue, neither of which has worked. They wont give me another, the only other option is surgery, which is a route I'd rather not go down. So now, it's trying to rule out every other possibility of my playing that could be causing it. I think you're fairly accurate there, buddy. I'm finding myself stuck in a hard place, because I listen to a lot of modern, fairly nice punk rock, which I can
  15. Thanks buddy, I appreciate you taking the time to answer. I think from now on, I'm going to play most things on 50% or so difficulty, try to take the pressure off a bit. That'll be my first change. I'll very possibly take my guitar(s) to get a setup done this month if I have the spare cash, see how that impacts things too. Thanks again
