How to Use Custom DLC (cDLC) on Mac   Here's a condensed version for those of you who have a hard time following instructions.   The following instructions are for Rocksmith 2014 R

@Zero_black_zero  For anyone with Mac 64 bit Rocksmith 2014 Remastered issues.  Here's what to do: 1) Uninstall Rocksmith.  Make sure you DELETE the steam folder/files under application support when

64-Bit (Catalina and latest Rocksmith Update): Download, unzip and run the "run rs patch.command", then launch Rocksmith as normal. https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing OP UPDATED

My mac was out of commission for a while as I'd moved house but on sorting out the man-cave I found that CDLCs froze.  I followed some of the advice here

1. I deleted Rocksmith and reinstalled,  Game then worked for original and Rcoksmith's own DLCs.  

2.  Then ran the patch (do I need to place it anywhere in particular before running it?)and got the following message...

Seans-iMac:~ myname$ /Users/myname/Desktop/RUN_PATCH_RS.command ; exit;
cp: ./libRSBypass.dylib: No such file or directory
/Users/myname/Desktop/RUN_PATCH_RS.command: line 4: ./insert_dylib: No such file or directory
logout
Saving session...
...copying shared history...
...saving history...truncating history files...
...completed.
[Process completed]
 
3.  I then added one DLC (NewOrder_LeaveMeAlone_m.psarc) but it failed.  :-(
 
I'm running High Serra 10.13.6 because I cannot go any higher than that as this is a late 2009 iMac.
 
Any pointers that I should follow would be gratefully received.

So I'm on Catalina and Rocksmith runs CDLCs fine for me, I got all that working. My problem is I can't get any method of converting PC CDLCs to Mac versions up and running. I have RocksmithCustomSongToolkit and every time I open it it tells me to download MONO 2.8 or higher. I've downloaded the most recent MONO and it didn't work. Does anyone have any suggestions? Or an older version of MONO?

@@cozy1 It seems to be working, I installed Microsoft .NET Framework like it recommended (I did 4.7.2) and it fully installed according to Crossover. But when I open CFSM it shows up in the dock and then closes immediately before anything opens up.

 

Edit: Okay installed it in the same bottle as the .NET Framework and it opened! But now it is saying "Unhandled Exception: The given path's format is not supported ... Open log file now? And no matter if I click yes, no or close the window, the whole app closes itself. and the directory I clicked on for the RS2014 Installation Directory is Y:\Library\Application Support\Steam\steamapps\common\Rocksmoth2014

@@Shakey64 so then these instructions should work if you follow them exactly.

 

after you reinstall fresh steam validated rocksmith make sure that you can play dlc.  many mac users have had issues with cdlc that are corrupt after the update.  i would recommend that you start with only dlc in the dlc folder and go from there.

I have installed Rocksmith on Catalina and enabled the beta with 64bit support.  I downloaded the patch, but when I run the RUN_PATCH_RS.command, I get the following error:

 

“insert_dylib” cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified.

 

I've checked the permissions on that file and my user, staff and everyone have "Read & Write" permissions.

 

Anyone an idea?

So, I decided to put this out there on the off chance that it might help at least some people out. 

 

I'd been having issues with getting some songs to work/load in RS. Whenever I loaded in, some of my customs would be there, but others wouldn't. I tried reinstalling, reconverting, anything to try to figure it out or get them to work. Nothing. Several were by the same uploader, band, etc, just different songs. 

 

Then this happened by accident. I was messing around with the song list for the umpteenth time, and started to exit out. I got to the main title screen again, and then changed my mind about quitting, wanting to test another setting. When I went back into my song library, holy heck, all of them were there!

 

I spent several minutes testing variables, messing with other menu settings, just waiting to see if the songs would load, etc. But the only consistent thing I found was loading in, exiting to the main title screen, and loading back in. Every time.

 

 

So, tldr: If you can't seem to get your CDLC songs to appear, try exiting to the main title screen and then loading back in again. I have no clue why this works when nothing else did, but hey, I have my songs so I don't care!

Hi, 

some time ago I had CDLC working on RS in my MAC. 

Now I have updated to MacOS Catalina, I reinstalled Steam and RS on the default location (I am smart enough to install it somewhere else and also to stay away from windows :-) ), and run the pach according to the instructions.

The terminal aid something like "Last login: Thu Mar 26 19:53:05 on ttys000

 

The default interactive shell is now zsh.

To update your account to use zsh, please run `chsh -s /bin/zsh`.

Any suggestions, thanks in advance.

Hi, 
I have some problems with Rocksmith in CDLC.

I update Catalina in MacOS, and reinstall the steam and Rocksmith.

Then my CDLC song(every one) will be stuck on the screen showing the speaker . The original will be fine.

Sometimes the Session Mode gets the same issue.

 

My CDLC's App id is using the original "OutKast-Hey Ya!".

I'm not sure if it has anything to do with this? but Everything worked smoothly before the upgrade.

 

Have any suggestion for it?, thanks for the community. :)

I had all the issues mentioned in this thread. Freezing, songs not showing up, etc. I'm pretty sure the solution is simple as I have had no problems since implementing it.

 

And the solution is, Clean up your song folder. Simple as that and I'm fairly confident your issues will disappear. I think rocksmith struggles when you have a lot of songs with long titles, spaces, odd characters. 

 

Look at rocksmiths dlcs compaired with cdlcs. "cherubrock_m.psarc" nice and simple. Compared to a random cdlc "Led Zeppelin - 2 - Babe I'm Gonna Leave You_m.psarc" Over three dozen characters, punctuation, spaces...the works.

 

Edit the file names of all your cdlcs that look over complicated. Turn the above to "ledzep-babe.m.psarc" for example.

 

It's tedious, but necessary. I had hundreds of songs and it took hours to clean up. But now every song shows up and plays. No freezes. Everytime I download a new song, I simplify the file name before it goes into the song folder.

 

Aslo search your folder for any p.psarc files and delete them, they are PC files and may cause problems. (I can't confirm this, but did so just in case).

Hello, I can't see CDLC on Rocksmith since the day before yesterday, I am running  Mac Os Catalina and everything was working fine since then.

So I tried to fix it by running the patch again but it did not work.

I uninstalled Rocksmith after removed all the files in the steam folder so I can make a clean install, but it did not work again.

I changed the ID of my CDLC but it did not work neither.

The patch I run is this one:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1ZKYtpB0vu2WnJWZzdtUkp6SU0/view

 

I don't understand why I can't play CDLC, am I the only one who is having this problem?

Same issues after latest update also original RS songs not showing, this has happened before and if they want to keep the customer base want go onto whatever is coming next a bit more effort for testing would be a good idea. If asked I suspect most of Mac and PC audience would help as we all want the best experience and to take it beyond just a game.

Last time I had to remove all the DLC and reacquire then add back in CDLC afterwards, will give that a try in morning and post results.

Are there any updates to this whole Catalina debacle? Obviously, had I known I wouldn't be able to play any of my CDLC, I wouldn't have let my mac update to Catalina. I'm just wondering if anyone has a rough timeframe, or if I should move on from rocksmith and stop trying all of the weird random fixes.
The farthest I get is loading a song, and then having the song details hang out in RS while the screen fades to black in the background as if it will play. If I remove all CDLC the regular RS songs work but they are just meh. I've looked around for a couple of hours at least every month to see if our awesome devs have created a solution, and no rush if it's complicated etc- I'm just wondering if I move on. 

 

 

**Edit**

So, I got it to work magically. Something about the order of operations and installation fixed the issues within the game - so my old DLC works fine. Now it's just a matter of getting new DLC converted to Mac.

Any chance you could explain what you did to get it to work? I'm having the exact same issues as you did.

@Zero_black_zero 

For anyone with Mac 64 bit Rocksmith 2014 Remastered issues.  Here's what to do:

 

1) Uninstall Rocksmith.  Make sure you DELETE the steam folder/files under application support when uninstalling it. Most user issues with uplay account not showing up and/or dlc missing are because when doing the uninstall the users never went in and manually deleted this folder.

 

I'm running an early 2011 MacBook Pro with OS 10.11.6 El Capitan

 

I'm now on my third uninstall - reinstall attempt to remedy this. I can't find the Steam folder in application support, I've tried using command, shift, . to reveal hidden files but there's nothing there... no Steam folder at all... any thoughts?
