  1. I've made the CDLC for the B-52's Rock Lobster. It's the fourth song I've done, all with DD. However, for Rock Lobster the DD graphics (bar graph above song as it's played along with sections) don't show up when the song is being played or in riff repeater. The dynamic difficulty is working just not showing up. I can lower the DD and the notes disappear. Also, the brackets show up in riff repeater and I can move to any section of the song and change the DD level. The space between the brackets is empty. Any reason why the graphic part isn't working? Thanks.
  2. Hello, I downloaded KITADE NANA - Kesenai Tsumi on whom there is a Dynamic Difficulty. But in the game, she does not appear. It is the case for some song. Can you help me please ? thanks
  3. Dynamic Difficulty is rarely well responsive in cDLC on phrase levels. When a phrase is leveled op or down, identical notes in other phrases don't level. This happens because most of us don't define phrases, Phrases are sub-elements of sections, they subdivide a section. A phrase should not cross two sections, it should not start before or end after a section. To avoid problems, usually the whole song is divided in sections (more or less respecting its note structure) and we check "also add as phrase" 1 section = 1 phrase, while a section can have multiple phrases. We leave the task to define more phrases to the DD creator. It is easy to define phrases by using EOF "Catalog" in song menu, which is the most underrated feature because it seems always deactivated. Catalog gets activated when 2 notes at least are selected. It groups and names ranges of notes and finds all identicals. Catalog note blocs can be displayed (Q), and played below the main "Piano roll". Catalog note blocs can be named freely, and their name can be used as phrases "LeadScale1", "BassScale2" ... Instead of starting with a global song view (using Lyrics to structure), start with the 1st repeating pattern of notes. Procedure would be : 1. Select the first repeating set of notes and define its name in Catalog. (it must start on a main beat called measure, to make it a start position for a phrase) 2. Give the same catalog name to the phrase (shift+P) at the 1st beat of the selected notes. 3. Use the catalog feature to search (F3) for identicals (sets current position on it's first note) (or shift+F3 to jump to previous identical) 4. Give all found set of notes the same starting phrase/catalog name. 5. Repeat procedure for next set of notes 6, Check for unrepeated rest of notes following defined phrases (solo, intro, outro ...) 7. Gather phrases into a section, without checking the "also add as phrases". This may need to be done for all parts lead, rhythm,bass, selecting "specific to PART_..." when adding a phrase. Catalog is not related to Phrases, it only helps to create them. This means you can give same phrase names, even if single notes, ending notes are different. This way Dynamic Difficulty works correctly. Success/fail on one phrase level adjusts all levels of the same phrase name (like in official songs) It may take more time, depending on the song, until one gets used to. And it helps analyzing song structures. Example : In a 1st section called "intro", 4 phrases are freely called "Scale1" and another called "Scale2" http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/0d08/puniaho9c981301bg.jpg?size_id=6 In a 4th section called "postvs", 1 phrase only among 2 others is called "Scale1" http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/f79b/w5235ha5t7lj69dbg.jpg?size_id=6 I let the files go through the DD creator (with 6 phrases set) and it kept my number of phrases. http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/b167/25dmq383jhocdg2bg.jpg?size_id=4 Now, when I increase the level in the section intro (it's not possible to increase the level of a phrase separately), the phrase "scale1" in the 4th section "Riff" is automatically increased, without being selected and only this phrase. Check XML level of the events The XML of EOF : Phrase names get replaced by a phrase ID (position depending) <phrase disparity="0" ignore="0" maxDifficulty="0" name="Riff1" solo="0"/> <phrase disparity="0" ignore="0" maxDifficulty="0" name="Riff2" solo="0"/> <phrase disparity="0" ignore="0" maxDifficulty="0" name="Riff3" solo="0"/> phrase disparity="0" ignore="0" maxDifficulty="0" name="Scale1" solo="0"/> <phrase disparity="0" ignore="0" maxDifficulty="0" name="Scale3" solo="0"/> <phraseIteration time="5.976" phraseId="4"/> <phraseIteration time="9.910" phraseId="4"/> <phraseIteration time="13.845" phraseId="4"/> <phraseIteration time="17.779" phraseId="4"/> <phraseIteration time="42.369" phraseId="3"/> <phraseIteration time="46.304" phraseId="4"/> <phraseIteration time="49.255" phraseId="5"/> All phrases Scale1 get the Id=4 The XML of DD Creator : Phrase names of EOF get lost and replaced by another name and phrase ID <phrase disparity="0" ignore="0" maxDifficulty="3" name="p1" solo="0"/> <phrase disparity="0" ignore="0" maxDifficulty="3" name="p2" solo="0"/> <phrase disparity="0" ignore="0" maxDifficulty="3" name="p3" solo="0"/> <phrase disparity="0" ignore="0" maxDifficulty="2" name="p4" solo="0"/> <phrase disparity="0" ignore="0" maxDifficulty="2" name="p5" solo="0"/> <phraseIteration time="5.976" phraseId="2" variation=""> <phraseIteration time="9.910" phraseId="3" variation=""> <phraseIteration time="13.845" phraseId="3" variation=""> <phraseIteration time="17.779" phraseId="4" variation=""> <phraseIteration time="40.402" phraseId="8" variation=""> <phraseIteration time="42.369" phraseId="9" variation=""> <phraseIteration time="46.304" phraseId="4" variation=""> <phraseIteration time="49.255" phraseId="10" variation=""> Only the previous identical section seems to get a common ID. Maybe the DDcreator's can explain this. I hope to contribute to go beyond the "lazy Section=Phrase" option, to make cDLC closer to official quality and make Riff Repeator and Dynamic Difficulty work as they should, considering most users are probably beginners or enter intermediate level.
  4. http://guitargames.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/ddc-512.png {Original icon from Svengraph} Dynamic Difficulty Creator I am pleased to share with you the "Dynamic Difficulty Creator" which : - uses the XML files of each arrangement to produce a new version of these files (files like "PART REAL_GUITAR.xml") - generates all phrases automatically (if not already created in EOF) - generates all levels of dynamic difficulties from 0 to 19 if needed for each phrase DDC v3.7 supports various time signatures : - if a time signature is missing, you can now configure its categorization maps - the synchronization process in EOF must respect the rhythm (the measures, beats and time signatures have to be correctly defined in EOF) For best results : - during the synchronization process in EOF, do not move the notes, just move the main measures (vertical bars) - create sections and phrases in EOF carefully because they strongly influence DDC process - All sections and phrases must start on the main beat of a measure If these rules are bypassed, DDC can work, but the results are not garenteed ...

  5. Hey everyone! So I've been in this community for a couple months now and have played a good number of custom songs (props to everyone). I think that now is the time to start contributing back to everyone. Personally, I like to search only for songs with Dynamic Difficulty, which is what inspired my first project to be Here's To Us, by Halestorm. I've noticed someone has a custom available for this, but it does not have dynamic difficulty available. Rather than pestering the individual, I thought I might take this simple song into my own hands. I wasn't able to find a *.gp of the song's tabs, but I've got fretting/chord reference from a video posted directly by Lzzy and Joe to the band's YouTube channel. I've also got some general ideas how I might scale the difficulty. Again, this is my first project, so I'm still gaining familiarity with the software. Although I've got a general idea of what I'm doing, I'd greatly appreciate any support/tips/assistance anyone might have to offer. I'll keep you all updated!
  6. So, I've had a project going for a few months. Unfortunately, I've had two things prevent me from finishing it. One being work, the other is my lack of knowledge. I've got the song charted out, finger positions mapped for chords. I just don't know how to incorporate dynamic difficulty. Is there something in the toolkit, or is there something I have to do? Any light that can be shed would be fantastic, thank you all.
  7. So, I've gone through and used the Dynamic Difficulty Creator, but I'm faced with another problem - most of the songs that once lacked Dynamic Difficulty also lacked section markers. Which means, as a result, when I enter the Riff Repeater, it's either the whole song or none of it. Is there a way to retrieve files from the CDLC pack to add section markers to break up a song?
  8. I'm just finishing my second CDLC. Overall, I'm pretty happy with how things are working out - but so far I have used the DD Creator in the Rocksmith Custom Toolkit to produce Dynamic Difficulty. With the bass part for the current song, this seems fine (it's not a very complicated part). I'm not really satisfied with what the DDC produces for the guitar part though. I can see roughly what the algorithm is doing and as an algorithmic approach that seems fine... but it's not the same as the order of notes to make visible if I had free choice. (I'd like to think that I would pick a more "musical" selection that would enable the phrase to be learnt quicker.) Are there other ways to create DD? My guess is that I ought to be able to do something in EoF to create the DD, but I've not seen a single tutorial describe how to do it. Am I missing something?
  9. Hi there I'm one of the guys who discovered the pleasure of learning to play the guitar later when the job and family really limits the time... Now for the question: Can I add in any way Dynamic Difficulty to the CDLC that don't have it? I really want to play some songs but in full it is much too hard and with all those notes coming I have no chance in learning the song.... Thanks and I hope I'll get a positive answer Cheers, Calin
