  1. Happy Birthday MilkmanDan!

  2. Happy Birthday MilkmanDan!

  3. Since authoring the original post, a lot has happened. Here's the gist of the solution / trick: Standard tuning for a bass is EADG at A=440Hz. Some songs show up in your list as "slightly sharp or flat", which means that they are at A=438 or 445Hz or some small skew like that. Rocksmith coded in a hard cap for the lowest note that could be tuned as a B1 in A=440Hz, the exact lowest note of a 5 string bass. So, you can approach that note, but when you actually reach it that hard cap in software tells it that "that can't be right", and it just sorta gives up. However, there is no hard ca
  4. A few things are conspiring against me this week. It is Songkran week in Thailand and I f*#@ing hate Songkran, combined with massive headache-inducing job drama, and I have been trying to chill out by picking up Skyrim again. Shooting things full of arrows and mashing them into a bloody pulp with a mace relieves some stress for me, but has been working too well in that I have been ignoring Rocksmith. Here's an "entry" at MC Bass: The 85ish Mastery rating is from playing at 75-80% speed. I didn't practice that way before doing this one, this is just from going in cold. Anesthesia / Cliff
  5. Woooo for Anesthesia at MC Bass! Can we turn the difficulty ratings up to 11, like Spinal Tap's amps? For the other songs, I've never heard of the Gangsters but sounds like a fun one to try, Blue Oyster Cult I like and really came to appreciate after playing Burnin' For You and Don't Fear the Reaper in Rocksmith -- both really fun basslines -- so I'm looking forward to that, and Pantera is great and I've already got Hollow with several trial plays. So this week I'm definitely back in action, and I'll be doing a cannonball (or possibly a bellyflop with Anesthesia) into the pool instead of
  6. Given the same accuracy, scores in each higher level of difficulty are much higher than the one before it. Even if you're playing a No DD version of the song and therefore seeing all of the notes even on easy difficulty. That continues on in to Master difficulty, which is all the notes PLUS master mode (so you can't see them). If you get a 100% accuracy on Hard and then Master, the Master score will be significantly higher than the Hard one. That all makes sense and is fair, but Score Attack scores in general are a bit flaky. Not exactly arbitrary, but the algorithm that gives you a sco
  7. Hey! ...The Championship is no place for "gotcha" journalism! :P I guess I should be more open minded. That one wasn't so bad, but Jackass Brigade took me from "on the fence" to: http://www.reactiongifs.com/r/2013/02/nope.gif Still, there are even a few Metallica songs that I have a similar level of dislike for. And I wouldn't want to write off the band entirely over those few...
  8. I'm OK with a max time limit, but I think 9-10 minutes would be my preference. Largely because I definitely also want to see Orion (my favorite song) in the CS sometime... :D I think I'm still going to sit this week out though. Dream Theater is on my "no thank you" list just as much as Fishbone... :P
  9. I think you forgot to share that first screenshot, pops up with the Google Drive permissions page for me
  10. I'm with @@NoonyDeloony on Fishbone. I guess one can "pass" on 1 week in 5 and still maintain diehard status now? I'm doing that whether it works that way or not.
  11. ...And might as well do Int while I'm at it since I know/like the song: I had played the other version (not Plum's) before. This one made it harder for me to figure out the rhythm and sound right, but easier to get the 100% I think. Might have to load both back into the list to make sure about which one I prefer (been a while since I've played the other), but off the top of my head I think I prefer the bass in the other one (not that I can point to anything specifically wrong with this one).
  12. Still under the weather, but had to try out @@Nacholede 's version of Justice: Much easier to play (at least in my opinion, went from 95% on the other to 98% here), and to me it sounds much more accurate. Although I'm not enough of an expert to say that definitively. Still, thanks much for the revision Nacho -- I definitely prefer yours to the original/other one. Only negative thing that I would say is that the bass tone is too overdriven/distorted to me, but that is a pretty subjective thing and very easily remedied with a tone switch. I switched to a loud but clean tone, EQ'd pretty he
  13. I intended to actually spend some time practicing songs this week, but had some job-related frustrations (nothing too serious) and then got sick. I played MC Bass once earlier but haven't gone back to it with all that happening, and now I don't think I'll get around to it. So, I'll just post that now to keep my diehard streak up: Looking forward to your remastered version @@Nacholede -- again I don't think I'll get time this week but I'm also a big fan of the Justice album so it will be awesome to check out your versions of the songs in the future. Thanks!
  14. Score Attack scores, like that, always count -- even if you get X's. Unless you strike out with 3 X's, anyway. Sometimes people use Dynamic Difficulty Creator and have it automatically generate really short sections (sometimes a section with only 1-2 notes), and then if you miss any at all in those sections it will hit you with an X. If you ever run into a song like that, you can fix it by redoing the DD yourself in the toolkit with longer sections (or just pipe up in here and I or somebody else will fix it!).
  15. Audio source from ...And Justice for Jason? Justice is right up there in my list of favorite Metallica albums, and the Justice for Jason version where they actually make his bass audible in the mix makes it even more badass. And it is sourced/remastered from multitracks of the original studio recording. Honestly I don't know how anyone could tab the bass by ear on the original recording, the bass is SO low in the mix...
