Hi, folks. I'll be using this thread to maintain the latest versions of EOF in one place. To start, download and extract EOF 1.8RC12: http://www.mediafire.com/file/ih70h6p67iy77ka/eof1.8RC12.zip You

Hi, folks. The latest hotfix (r1378) is in the first post. Changes are as follows: *Improved GP import to process bend status for grace notes, it will apply a bend strength to the grace note correspo

Hi, folks. The latest hotfix (r1363) is in the first post. Changes are as follows: *Added a warning during save if any lyrics have extended ASCII or Unicode characters, as these aren't compatible wit

Nevermind it works now. It just that I had the 11-1-2018 build already opened, and thats why 12-5 wouldnt start up. Always gives the MP3 not supported warning, even though I do have Lame and Vorbis tools installed, and the preferences, import/export settings aren't saved upon updating. Don't know if thats normal.

Future CDLCs here(Ubisoft Style):

I don't run into that, maybe your OS X is set up differently or there is a permission problem with where your EOF app folder is. I've been putting mine in my account's desktop and my preferences seem to save and load normally. I also get the MP3 support after having installed the Mac utilities from the EOF download page (required providing admin credentials).

I do not understand the logic of "copy, paste" that has been modified.

-Some times, the copy works very well

- sometimes the copy is partial (the technical notes are not copied)

-other case, the copy of a simple chord is wrong, example: string/case D1 G0 B0 copied give at pasted D0 G0 B0

weird.

Tech notes don't copy automatically when you're copying normal notes. It never did this, but I could eventually add the ability for EOF to do that. Some other functions (ie. click and drag to move notes will move the tech notes accordingly).

 

If you can reliably reproduce a scenario where copying a chord and pasting it results in the pasted chord having the wrong fret numbers, let me know. If the fret numbers can't be retained because the source track has higher fret numbers than the destination track is set to allow, EOF will display a warning about this and the affected gems of the pasted note will have their fret value set to 0.

maybe it would be possible to add an option that asks before pasting something like this (do you also want to paste the technical notes that are hidden in the selection of notes "yes" "no") or then an option to add in the preferences same that (copy paste tech notes too)

 

Some other functions (ie. click and drag to move notes will move the tech notes accordingly).

Perfect for me

Sorry for that.

I've made some changes since then and can not get the problem I've submitted to you.

However, if this happens, I will not fail to save the problem to let you know.

 

Thank you for your implication.

The consensus has generally been that people don't like to be prompted for something all the time versus enabling a setting once and having it stick. Whether tech notes copy/paste automatically along with normal notes would probably be one of the checkboxes you could set in the preferences.

Hi, folks. The latest hotfix (12-20-2018) is in the first post. Changes are as follows:

*Fixed a bug with the %CH_SP_SEEK_SP_PATH_STATUS% macro so that it correctly reports the deployment's timing when the seek position is within the scope of a star power deployment.

*Greatly improved the performance of the %TRACK_SOLO_NOTE_COUNT%, %TRACK_SOLO_NOTE_STATS% and %TRACK_SP_NOTE_STATS% macros used in the Clone Hero panel.

*Added logic to remove duplicate star power sections that may have been added when importing multiple difficulty Feedback charts, as they define star power notes per difficulty.

*Added a %EOF_FPS% macro to display the number of frames per second rendered in the main loop of EOF (ie. doesn't update when dialogs are open, etc). This has been added to the Information panel.

*Added a warning when disabling GHL mode on a track with W3 single note gems that those gems are converted to 5 note chords.

*Added tracking for the resulting star power meter level after playing each note during star power path evaluation, and added a macro to display this in the Clone Hero panel.

*Added a "Song>Seek>Next CH SP deployable note" function that will seek to the next note (after the current seek position) at which there is enough star power to deploy in Clone Hero (the SP meter is at least 50% full).

*Added more stats about slider notes to the Clone Hero panel.

*Added the function to toggle the display of the secondary piano roll to Rex Mundi input mode's context menu.

*Added information to the Clone Hero panel about the length and effective notes per second rate reflected by the current grid snap setting at the current seek position.

*Added the NPS rate of currently selected notes to the Clone Hero panel.

*Added a red backgrounded warning to the Clone Hero panel if the active track difficulty has a solo without any notes.

*Added a yellow backgrounded warning to the Clone Hero panel if the active track has any solo that starts less than one second after a previous solo, which could cause the earlier solo's bonus score to be removed too quickly to be reasonably seen in Clone Hero.

*Improved the - and = keyboard controls (which alter the tempo of the anchor at/before the seek position) so that the dynamic highlighting (for "Seek>Highlight non grid snapped notes") updates immediately.

*Updated the Info panel to display the number of highlighted notes in the active track, ie. to display how many notes are highlighted by "Song>Highlight non grid snapped notes".

*Added the ability to use SHIFT+click to set the start and end points to reflect the portion of the chart from the previously-selected beat to the start position of the newly-selected beat.

*Changed the "Set start point" and "Set end point" functions to not mark the chart as modified.

*Organized several of the Beat menu's BPM manipulation functions into a BPM submenu.

*Added "Copy tempo map" and "Paste tempo map" functions to the Beat menu, allowing parts of a tempo map to be applied in another part of the chart, a separate chart or a separate EOF instance. To use this feature, use the "Set start point" and "Set end point" Edit menu functions (or select a beat marker and use SHIFT+click to select another beat marker) to select a part of the chart containing one or more beat markers and then use "Copy tempo map". Then select a beat marker to indicate the first beat that will be altered by the copied tempo map and use "Paste tempo map". The tempo and time signature of the applicable number of beats starting from the selected one will be updated accordingly.

 

You can now copy/paste a portion of the tempo map to another area, project or EOF instance. If you see the framerate listed in the Information panel drop significantly under certain circumstances (ie. using a particular Notes panel, changing to a track with a high number notes of a particular special status, etc), let me know so I can see if it can be improved. For now, it's known that the Note Counts panel can be slow on tracks that have tens of thousands of notes due to the type of processing needed.

Key CTRL of keyboard + the wheel of your mouse or alors clic on the mouse wheel to choose the numbers.

Another equivalent method, "Note" > "Pro Guitar“ > Édit pro guitar Note

Or directly the N key after selecting the note.

Hi, I did some editing on my Vocals track and now when I save I get the message, "Add MIDI phrases for lyrics/percussions not in lyric phrases?".

 

I haven't seen that message before.  Did I inadvertently add something wrong?  Why am I getting that message?

Hi, folks. The latest hotfix (1-15-2019) is in the first post. Changes are as follows:

*Corrected the SP pathing logic's scoring of partial points for disjointed chord sustains.

*Added a "Beat>Validate tempo map" function that will check if any beats' timestamps aren't accurately reflected by the tempo changes in the project, and if so, offers to correct the tempo changes to resolve this. This check is now automatically run when the project is loaded and at the end of the "Anchor measures" functions.

*Improved the automatic resnapping that occurs if a note loses grid snap during MIDI import due to number rounding so that it can resnap to the beat marker after it if that's the closest grid snap position.

*Fixed a minor bug where the difficulty tab highlighting wouldn't immediately update if using the , or . keys to change away from a custom grid snap and notes in the track using that grid snap became highlighted for being out of grid snap (for the built-in grid snap intervals).

*Improved the accuracy of EOF's capability to test a note's grid snap status or recover grid snap positioning during paste by having EOF now checking all intervals from 1/2 through 1/96 beat instead of just the default, built-in grid snap sizes. This should allow better recognition of strange intervals like 1/20 as being grid snapped.

*Added a "Phase cancellation" feature (ie. to remove center-panned vocals) for chart playback that can be toggled by using ALT+P or via the checkbox in File>Settings. A %PHASE_CANCELLATION% macro was added to allow this to be tracked.

*Changed the key to add vocal percussion notes from backspace to the 0 key (the normal one, not the number pad key), since some Mac keyboards don't have a true backspace key.

*Changed the Mac build so that the backspace key is treated as the delete key when no dialogs are open. This allows delete key shortcuts to be used on Mac keyboards that don't have a true backspace key.

 

The copy and clone clipboard formats have changed. Make sure to to re-perform copy or clone to clipboard before pasting or cloning from clipboard again or it will malfunction.

@@raynebc Seems like when I try to download latest EOF hotfix, it always says MP3 support disabled, even though I have installed it long ago. But it only seems to go away when I reinstall it. Im on Mac btw. I think this can be easily fixed. And also, I think yours preferences and export/import settings gets saved on Windows, but not on Mac. Might be easily fixed if you can get around that.

Unfortunately, those problems never occur on my Macbook. I'm also not a Mac expert so I don't know how to troubleshoot that problem. Are any other Mac EOF users able to explain why this could happen?

 

I think I remember somebody mention that Mac OS may interfere with EOF if EOF is within the Downloads folder. If it isn't already, it's probably worth moving EOF to a folder on your Desktop or something like that.

Hi, folks. The latest hotfix (1-31-2019) is in the first post. Changes are as follows:

*Re-assigned the A accelerator key from Note>Transpose to Note>Clear, since the functions in the former menu already have keyboard shortcuts.

*Fixed a bug with the "Validate tempo map" function that wouldn't correctly take non #/4 time signatures into effect.

*Added "End proximity" selection functions to select/deselect notes that end within a specified distance (or one grid snap length) of the note they precede. This will help in case you want to manually apply a specific note gap, by selecting notes that don't have at least a gap of the current grid snap length and then using [ or the scroll wheel once to shorten the selected notes.

*Renamed the "Neighbor proximity" selection functions to "Start proximity" to better identify their purpose compared to the "End proximity" selection functions.

*Added the ability to replace some of EOF's built-in graphics, fonts and sounds by saving PCX and WAV files with appropriate file names into the "resources" subfolder. A readme file is provided in that folder defining the names of some usable file names and the gem, font or sound effect the file pertains to. Allegro's "grabber" command line utility can be used on eof.dat to export any of EOF's built-in images or audio for reference/alteration.

*Fixed a bug with MIDI import where the note length wasn't correctly read for GHL open notes.

*Updated Feedback import to support Moonscraper's notation for non #/4 time signatures.

*Improved Feedback import to allow the selected audio file to be named song.ogg, drums.ogg, rhythm.ogg or vocals.ogg instead of creating a copy named guitar.ogg.

Have a new PC so had to re-download a fresh copy of EoF with the hotfix.

Few things I've noticed that don't work (for me at least)

  • Neither Waveform nor Spectograph will show with F5 or manually toggling it in the menu
  • Adding silence no longer works, initially does the re-encode CMD window then asks what bitrate I want again and asks for the media file again. Sometimes does nothing either and gives me an Error 42 window

Can't do much past this since I consider these pretty important for my CDLCs

 

EDIT: Tried a fresh copy without the hotfixes and works fine

The latest hotfix is pretty buggy with waveform, spectrogram, load ogg and leading silence. Here's a Windows beta build that should generally fix those issues:

http://ignition.customsforge.com/eof/download/304

 

I want to allow testers a day or two longer to test this beta out to make sure the problems are gone, and I can also add some more features until then.

I think I found a minor menu bug.   When you tick the Auto Adjust FHP and Auto Adjust Tech Notes it is closing the Preferences

dialog and acting like I hit OK.  It also automatically ticks 3D Render RS Style and oddly enough Lefty Mode (which is fine for me since I'm lefty).

 

I'm sure ticking one and having the others tick automatically might be right but having the box go away is probably the bug.

Not sure why it is setting Lefty Mode though :unsure:

 

This is minor but slightly annoying too.

 

Here's a video showing this in action:  http://pc.cd/mXJ

Money Talks!? All it ever says to me is "Goodbye!".
