Note head not showing

Question

I'm making a CDLC and a certain note/double stop is giving me a problem. Here is the tab, with the offending notes circled:

The problem is the plucked note on the 16th fret, 1st string. I have this exact phrase 3 times in my chart, but in-game, it strangely only shows the 2nd time. In the 1st and 3rd times, the note head doesn't show.

 

This picture should show what I mean:

On the top is the 1st time. The note head is clearly missing, but the RR missed note exclamation mark is there. The bottom shows the 2nd time, with the note correctly displayed.

 

I checked the .xml file and the notes all seem to be the same:

        <note time="193.181" linkNext="1" accent="0" bend="0" fret="15" hammerOn="0" harmonic="0" hopo="0" ignore="0" leftHand="-1" mute="0" palmMute="0" pluck="-1" pullOff="0" slap="-1" slideTo="16" string="3" sustain="0.211" tremolo="0" harmonicPinch="0" pickDirection="0" rightHand="-1" slideUnpitchTo="-1" tap="0" vibrato="0" />

What could I be missing?

The second time it doesn't happen because (i guess) the chord is on the next section which cause the game to break any linknext status and show the chord as picked no matter what.

The note head isn't displayed because of the linknext status on the note before.

 

If you want the player to pick both note, then simply get rid of the linknext status, if you want the player to only play the high E while letting rind the G string, it gets a bit more tricky to explain but you'll need to slightly offset the 16G so that EOF don't consider the whole as a chord.

 

Side note : are you sure about that 12B? it could be played as 16G which would be way easier to play imo.

Okay, I'll do that, but is there any explanation as to why it shows the 2nd time? Since everything is the same.

 

I tabbed 12B to give it that subtle arpeggio sound, and I think that's the way the artist plays it. Though the player could definitely play it as 16G if they prefer.
