have a new one, at least for me, looking for suggestions


Recommended Posts

"customsforgesongmanager.exe [] needs updating"  shows up in the log fie, and then a pop up window comes up saying it will delete all my csfm files do i want to continue.   the exact wording follows:


a fatal cfsm application error has occured. 

you are about to delete all work files created

by cfsm, including any backups of the cdls files.

deletion is permenant and can not be undone. 

do you want to continue?


when i close out the pop up window, i get the following message:


master collection.count = 0

cfsm will now shut down


I had updated to just after it was released and it worked wonderfully.  i have been tied up with work lately and haven't had time to try much lately, so not sure if this is something that has shown up already, or a new one. 


thanks in advance


p.s.  i checked the new beta and found the newer version  it is downloaded and after some messing with have it running.  i don't get the message now, but i do have another question.  i had downloaded the new songs for this weeks championship and checked them before bringing them into my dlc folder.  the tom petty file flagged for tone name error in xml file, then said it saved it in the "corrupt" subfolder.  my issue is when i look in the folder  ...steam/steamapps/common/rocksmith2014/backup/remastered/corrupt... it is empty.  any suggestions where i might find the file now?  i know i can redownload it, but i was going to see if i could correct it.  now i'm curious if cfsm finds other files are they in vapor land as well?   


as before thanks for any suggestions you send

"backup/remastered/corrupt"  and other CFSM related files are now stored in the 'My Documents/CFSM'. 


You can delete the  '..steam/steamapps/common/rocksmith2014/backup' folder and any subfolders if it is empty.
