  1. I thought it did to, but they must have changed it. Mine has three options only. 1. Always keep this game up to date. 2. Only update this game when I launch it 3. High Priority - Always auto-update this game before others. And that's it.
  2. There is no Off... Just three types of On. :(
  3. I've used Fraps and Shadowplay, both of which require "Audio Exclusivity" to be turned off in RS before they will capture sound. You can turn it off via tools/options ingame, or modify your Rocksmith.ini (in your Rocksmith2014 folder). By default, the second line down under the [Audio] heading reads: ExclusiveMode=1 You can change this to; ExclusiveMode=0 to turn it off.
  4. RR pic looks like there are no phrases, is that what you'd expect 2 see if sections were marked in EoF and not put through DDC?
  5. Hey Cat, have you got a pic of what you're seeing?? Currently (in my experience), only a marked section is individually selectable/manageable in RR. Is this the Section's primary/only function? This is confusing for me because I keep reading that the Section is like a marker for parts of the song, like a label and nothing more. But it's actually tied to RR usage and function yet that part is'nt spoken about. There's no point marking a 24 bar solo as a single "Solo" section because 24 bars is just too long to practically use in RR... So the alternative is to mark several 'solo' sections so
  6. For me personally, I think RS has limited learning appeal to the higher grade player. For beginners, it's awesome, because there is probably 1-2 years worth of study/content that helps build technique and knowledge. For Intermediate players (myself), it still offers a lot, but not in all areas - like Session mode, I would love to see more visual guidance, like chord shapes displayed with fingering and a Name of the chord to help with recognition. For me, the biggest impact RS has had is actually getting me engaged in playing. When you've played for years (not professionally) and have been comp
  7. I'm still working on it, but as we've discussed, I'm inserting sections as a means to break up the song in RR so it can be learnt in smaller pieces (mostly 2-bar sections). The camera works a little better, but still not as focused as I would like it to. It may just be the nature of the piece with the majority of it jumping between the 5th & 12th fret, there may not be enough time concentrated in one area for the camera to zoom in and stabilize. I've opted for inserting phrases for the track at the same time as I insert sections, none of my sections are more than 2-bars long and with DDC l
  8. Congrats on the "real guitarist" goal!! It may be worth sourcing a good instructor.. i.e. someone who can do all the things you aspire to do - They may be able to help carve out the path for you.... Other than that, you sound like you've done enough research to know what you need to learn, you could probably make up your own practice routine which includes it all; Fretboard knowledge - know every fret on every string by name, Chord shape drills - go through scale tone chords in every key, or play the same chord in every position up the neck Scale drills - pick a scale and a string at random, t
  9. Wow, thanks.... That will certainly help.... From the EoF Help file: "Hold S when pressing Space to play only the currently selected notes. Keep S held down to cause the selected notes to replay on a loop once the last selected note is reached." Thanks Marty, I'll have to go read that Keys file now, for the first time :oops:
  10. Would it be possible to create a looping mechanism within EoF? It may just be me who watches the notes on the wave form over and over again to confirm alignment by thrashing the arrow and space bar keys... In audio editing programs it's easy to define a section to repeat/loop by selecting it with a left click & drag method etc... But I don't know if that kind of functionality could be used in EoF... Maybe a couple of shortcuts -available keys permitting- with [loop start] and [loop end] status, And a [Clear loop markers] for when you've finished that section or made a mistake.. Then,
  11. I'm no expert, and I'm sure that opinions will vary, however I think you'll get more 'musical' benefit from learning songs.. The more you're exposed to riffs/rhythms will just build your guitar vocabulary. And if you think of guitar playing like a language, the better your vocabulary, the better you'll be able to express yourself. I don't know where I heard it, but I remember one thing mentioned by an instructor once; He said, never practice scales/techniques outside of a musical context. His argument was, scales aren't MUSIC - No one is going to pay $50 to come and watch you play scales,
  12. This is my preferred method too.. And from back in the day.... This, taken from a 1991 edition of "Guitar Player" magazine talking about an Eb transcription written in E. "Tuning: Though the tune was recorded in concert Eb, we notated the music in the key of E, which is how it looks on the fretboard." Yes, I'm old school - my Eb chart has E standard chord names. :smile:
  13. I probably should have deleted/regenerated the hand positions after the resnap.... Just looking at it now, 40+ of them are mere milliseconds out which raises EoF's warning on save message(s).... The phrase thing is something I'm unfamiliar with - i.e. how to do manually... I actually loved the fact DDC made so many evenly spaced phrases on its own and all I had to do was provide the sections... Which brings me to my song choice, it's not really a song, it's an instrumental. So other than a couple of chords and riffs that repeat a few times, the majority of it is all Solo. I struggled tryin
  14. OK, thanks for all that.I'll test it out... What's the worst that can happen :shock: Off topic once again, I'm collecting a large number of .undo / .redo files in my EoF main folder (505 currently), I don't really need these once I end the EoF program do I? I mean, I can't open a project and start doing "undo's" from the last time I was in EoF, can I??
