The "The" problem



When people make customs for bands whose names start with "The", sometimes the song shows up as "The <band name>" and sometimes as "<band name>".  DLC from Rocksmith always shows up as "<band name>".  It comes down to how people are creating the CDLC in the Toolkit.  The problem is that when CDLC creators fill in the "Artist Sort" field, they are filling it in with and without the "The".


That field is what controls how Rocksmith 2014 sorts the songs.  Rocksmith DLCs have the "Artist" field set with the full name (for example, "The Who").  The "Artist Sort" field is set with the name without the word "The" (for example, "Who").


Here's an example of a CDLC that keeps the word "The" but doesn't screw up the sort order.



I'd like to request that all custom creators delete the word "The" from the "Artist Sort" field, or use the process shown in the example above.

This might be something that you'd want to bring up with the actual charters of the songs, in those cases. It's a much easier fix for the original charter, as long as they've saved the template file for the CDLC.

It might be more effective than "requesting" that everyone shape up :)

You've certainly provided some good advice for those who don't pay attention to that sort of thing, though.
