Question

I was looking at the FUSE preview and it looks awesome. I thought it might be cool to have a progress bar for the request area, where the song that are "in progress" would show from red to green or from 5%, then 10%, then 50% until it was finished. I guess it might be controlled by creators who clicked in updates to how far they are along. Something that would get people excited and awaiting the track being almost done. Just thought that might be cool. Unless that is one of the features that has not been shown.

There are a couple of problems with stuff like that... Some charters, like myself, create CDLC in nearly an hour, so the updates would be pointless, in that instance. Another problem would be those who start working on a CDLC, and update the 'progress bar', may not even finish the CDLC. So if someone else was going to make it and checked the progress bar, saw that it was like 50%, that someone else would just move on to another project, assuming that the CDLC would be made. In all reality, it doesn't take very long to make a CDLC. IMO, If someone said that they were going to work on a certain song one day, I would expect it to be done on that day. 

 

Cheers.

The time it takes to make a CDLC depends on your method and how much attention you pay to small details. I can't recall the last time I made a CDLC in less than an hour.

 

Creating your own arrangements, transcribing by ear, or simply fixing mistakes can take much longer. Even if you have a perfect GP file (which almost never happens), there's a fair bit of fiddling in EoF required in order to optimize things for Rocksmith. That could be slides, bends, tone changes, note sustains, arpeggios, hand shapes, sections, etc. 

 

If it only takes you an hour or less, there's a good chance you're just importing the tab and then skipping right to the Toolkit steps.

 

That being said, the "progress bar" suggestion could be mildly useful, but it would never be an indicator of when a CDLC would be finished. People work in their spare time and obviously don't make any money creating CDLCs. Just because a song is "in progress" doesn't necessarily mean it will ever get finished. 

 

IMO it would be more important to have a better way to update and/or clean up the request section. There's so many songs in there that are being requested, while there are finished versions already in the database. Also, there's no way (at least that I know of) for the list to be updated when someone finishes a requested song.

I think this might be a preference thing.

 

To me I like see a progress bar to let me know that its happening, however long it may take. It wouldn't send me away. I didn't know that a song could be finished in such short amount of time. WTIM, when a creator updates they would just move the bar all the way up to done then. It wouldn't be necessary for them to update it just for the sake of doing it. I guess it would work in the case of someone who did take longer than an hour. So that a (very thankful) recipient of a requested song wouldn't lose faith in it being done. 

 

Thanks guys for your responses.

@@edikit The progress won't say what's happening, it would just say that someone decide to put the progress at a random number because reason... We can't monitor if the charter is really making progress or just decide to add some 5% in there for fun and it would probably make more harm in the long run.

 

@@GetTheLedOut It's the goal in the end to have a request working in the same space than fuse making most of the process automated to alert user that  their request has been made, to clean up the request when they are completed and allow any charter to quickly say "i'm working on it!" without having to rely on someone to update the whole DB which is why the current request system isn't working.
