Toolkit Beta Release and CLI for Remastered


Recommended Posts

Looks like the CDLC is corrupt.  Open the Mac CDLC with the 'CDLC Creator' tab 'Import Package'  Check to see that all Song Information including tempo is defined.  Generate as new Mac package and test. 

 

I've got 108 CDLCs, so all of them are corrupted???

Than that's definitely a problem with the toolkit's convertor.

 

I've tried to 'remaster' a PC format CDLC – it works. If I take the same CDLC, convert in to Mac and then try to 'remaster' – I've got the same error. As a matter of fact I can't even import converted file into toolkit, i've got the same error. I've tried to import PC CDLC, generate Mac version and import it – same result. With any CDLC.

It seems, that the only solution yet is to download all of my CDLCs again, in original PC format, 'remaster' them, and then convert to Mac (which i think will not guarantee, that they will be working properly, all things considered)...

Hi and thanks for the hard work.

 

1.

Maybe I found a bug in version 2.7.1.0 (rev 93cf5e58):

When I use "Load Package" in the CDLC Creator the first time after the program is started, everything is fine. But if I then load another package to generate the psarc of another song, the field "Album Sort" is not updated. Instead it shows the previous text. So I have to update it manually before I can generate the psarc. Can anyone confirm this issue?

 

2.

Is there any reason not to reupload my remastered CDLC with the current toolkit version? All my customs work fine but I am wondering if there are any bugs I might not see or things you would like to polish before people start publishing their CDLCs again...

 

 

----

Also I have been wondering for a long time (but this is in no way a priority thing):

Would it be possible to create an option in the "configuration" to always chain the CDLC Creator and DDC? So that I would only have to hit "Generate" on the Creator tab and DD is generated automatically with my default settings, giving me the final CDLC with one click? Now with RS Remastered there is no reason not to apply DDC anymore, thus we might as well make it default behaviour?

Thank you for the reply. So I need to edit the CDLC and remove some of the arrangements? I'm usually happy with just lead guitar and bass guitar (vocals are nice too, but I don't know if they count as an "arrangement") so I could just delete all others and repackage it?

"Is there any reason not to reupload my remastered CDLC with the current toolkit version?"  I would suggest waiting until these beta revs become finalized.  I reverted 'Chord' property in JSON manifest in Fix #8 and just need to make sure this does not cause issues for user.  This may or may not effect Chord ghosting issue.

 

"Would it be possible to create an option in the "configuration" to always chain the CDLC Creator and DDC?

As I already said, watch for 100% Bug Fix #8, soon to be released.  This release should address all issues and wish list items that have been mentioned in this thread.  Plz be sure to re-read all the instruction in Post#1 and Post#2 in the updated/edited posts.

@@BluePotato Vocals don't count, only playable arrangement count and the maximum RS remaster tolerate is 5.

 

All my CDLC have a total of 6 playable arrangements: Lead, Rhythm and Bass plus the same with enabled metronome. They play just fine ingame. But visually ingame only 5 are supported, because the "other arrangement" list can only show 4 entries. The last one is not displayed, but you can still select it with the arrow keys.

I am still convinced that the metronome mode is the most feasible way to learn how to play music (in contrast to regular RS usage, where you only learn to play the notes of a song and remain ignorant about how your guitar actually sounds) inside of Rocksmith. So I think the metronome implementation in the toolkit was a major achievement and I see it somewhat under attack here. I could of course agree to not apply the metronome to e.g. bass and stick to 5 arrangements, but that is not an ideal solution.

I think some further investigation is justified before condemning 5+ arrangement CDLCs in general. Since they work for me, I think there must be other/additional reasons for the crashes, not the fact of 5+ arrangements alone.

Bonus Bass issue again:

When I view this song in Rocksmith 2014 Remastered, it says "Bonus Bass" and when I go to play it in 'Learn a Song,' RS crashes to desktop. I've been told that the issue is there are too many arrangements. I know you can't see all of them in the list, but they are:

  • 2x Bass
  • 2x Guitar - Lead
  • 2x Guitar - Rhythm
  • Vocals
  • ShowLights

 

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b324/davemweber/Screen%20Shot%2010-19-16%20at%2011.18%20AM.png

 

My pressing questions are:

1. Why are there duplicates of bass, lead, and rhythm?

2. If I want to play this CDLC without it crashing, which arrangements should I remove?

 

Thank you, community, for your continued help.

@@dukeeastwood "I've played seems to show all the notes instead of ghosting the multiples so that you can see the chord change coming." 

 

I reverted 'Chords' property in JSON manifest on a hunch that this may be the cause of the missing chord ghosting. Could you please repair an existing CDLC that you know to have chord ghost notes with the latest beta revision and see if the ghost notes are still there?  See Post#1 and Post#2 for latest beta revision download link and instructions.  Let me know if this reversion puts back (leaves alone) the ghost notes for you?

Could you elaborate? What is this metrognome mode? Is it like playing the song with no music? If the CDLC creator is doing it right, you should still be able to hear your guitar over the music.

LaceyB like myself used non-dd arrangements as main and dd arrangements as bonus arrangement.

The reason for non-dd arr. was that RS removed notes in DD arr.while playing which was pretty annoying.

RS Remastered can now be setup not to downgrade notes. 
 

Click on edit : 

You should keep the files with DD in there name, they are larger too, and if they have the Bonus icon checked, uncheck it.

Even if I convert PC to Mac CDLC with the latest toolkit, I get the same error. It converts fine, and the custom is playable (except the 100% bug), but it won't import nor 'remaster'.

I've tried it with the official DLC file. It should be correct and complete, right? And it's all the same. PC version imports fine, converted to Mac – not working, same error.

Tried out a few songs on #8 version , all converted without 100% error and kept  their original stats , but all the chords still show in all windows except hand mutes which are still ghosted ? I hope this helps many thanks.

Thanks.  This helps confirm it does not have to do with the 'Chords' property change in JSON Manifest.

I have also tried *Run as administrator* and *Compatibility mode* to no avail .
