Chord notes without the chord box

Hi,

 

  I have found the following example in "Danzig - She Rides" CDLC (from dreddfoxx) :

  <chordTemplates count="12">
    <chordTemplate displayName="" chordName="" fret0="-1" fret1="-1" fret2="0" fret3="2" fret4="3" fret5="-1" finger0="-1" finger1="-1" finger2="-1" finger3="1" finger4="2" finger5="-1" />
    <chordTemplate displayName="E5" chordName="E5" fret0="0" fret1="2" fret2="-1" fret3="-1" fret4="-1" fret5="-1" finger0="-1" finger1="2" finger2="-1" finger3="-1" finger4="-1" finger5="-1" />
    <chordTemplate displayName="D5" chordName="D5" fret0="-1" fret1="5" fret2="7" fret3="-1" fret4="-1" fret5="-1" finger0="-1" finger1="1" finger2="3" finger3="-1" finger4="-1" finger5="-1" />
    <chordTemplate displayName="E5" chordName="E5" fret0="-1" fret1="7" fret2="9" fret3="-1" fret4="-1" fret5="-1" finger0="-1" finger1="1" finger2="3" finger3="-1" finger4="-1" finger5="-1" />
    <chordTemplate displayName="D" chordName="D" fret0="-1" fret1="-1" fret2="7" fret3="7" fret4="-1" fret5="-1" finger0="-1" finger1="-1" finger2="1" finger3="1" finger4="-1" finger5="-1" />
    ...
  </chordTemplates>
  ...
      <notes count="216">
          ...
          <note time="44.071" linkNext="1" accent="0" bend="0" fret="7" hammerOn="0" harmonic="0" hopo="0" ignore="0" leftHand="-1" mute="0" palmMute="0" pluck="-1" pullOff="0" slap="-1" slideTo="9" string="3" sustain="0.535" tremolo="0" harmonicPinch="0" pickDirection="0" rightHand="-1" slideUnpitchTo="-1" tap="0" vibrato="0" />
        <note time="44.071" linkNext="1" accent="0" bend="0" fret="7" hammerOn="0" harmonic="0" hopo="0" ignore="0" leftHand="-1" mute="0" palmMute="0" pluck="-1" pullOff="0" slap="-1" slideTo="9" string="2" sustain="0.535" tremolo="0" harmonicPinch="0" pickDirection="0" rightHand="-1" slideUnpitchTo="-1" tap="0" vibrato="0" />
          ...
      </notes>
   ...
      <handShapes count="166">
        ...
        <handShape chordId="4" endTime="44.606" startTime="44.071" />
        ...
      </handShapes>

Two singles notes are located at the same position (44.071).

An handShape which references a chordTemplate starts at this same position.

 

So the two single notes are replacing the chord in the XML file.

 

Is there a simple way to author this in EOF (like a chord with a special flag) ?

 

Thank you

Previous builds of EOF would break up chords that were inside arpeggio or handshape phrases into single notes during Rocksmith export. Now it only does this for chords inside of arpeggio phrases. If people think it could be useful for the author to define whether such chords still get broken up in handshape phrases, I could have this done for applicable chords that also have crazy status. I think this would make sense because outside of arpeggio/handshape phrases, this status is used with chords to force the gems to display instead of having them display as repeat lines.

 

That said, some people think multiple single notes at the same timestamp (instead of a chord box) makes the chart less readable and I can understand why. I also had proposed changing EOF's handshape phrase logic so that chords inside of handshape phrases export as both single notes and a chord with chord notes to make the chord's gems more obvious, but I haven't heard back from anybody about whether this was considered necessary. I'm not sure at this point if such chords display as just a repeat line or if they also show the gems for the chord in-game.

 

Edit: Your other post in the handshape/arpeggio thread seems to go into that topic a bit.
