Chord slide with open note error

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Having an issue authoring a chord slide with an open note. Tried tech notes, ghosting the middle open note, etc. Can't seem to make it display the open note correctly. See below for EOF and RS views. When I author it in GP5 and import, it turns it into separate chords.

Thanks,

-Hunter

Try this:

The resulting XML looks pretty clean:

    <chordTemplate chordName="D5" displayName="D5" finger3="1" finger4="2" fret2="0" fret3="2" fret4="3" />
...
        <chord time="1.000" chordId="0" linkNext="1" >
          <chordNote time="1.000" string="2" fret="0" sustain="2.000" />
          <chordNote time="1.000" string="3" fret="2" sustain="0.250" slideTo="4" leftHand="1" />
          <chordNote time="1.000" string="4" fret="3" sustain="0.250" slideTo="5" leftHand="2" />
        </chord>
...
        <note time="1.250" string="3" fret="4" sustain="0.250" linkNext="1" slideTo="2" />
        <note time="1.250" string="4" fret="5" sustain="0.250" linkNext="1" slideTo="3" />
        <note time="1.500" string="3" fret="2" sustain="1.500" />
        <note time="1.500" string="4" fret="3" sustain="1.500" />

@@raynebc That doesn't work. Chordnotes cannot have different sustains.

 

I can think of two ways to make it work:

 

1. The simple way

 

Since the problem is caused by how RS draws open notes into the anchor zone, you can simply remove the FHP changes from the slides:

If the fingering uses the first finger, EOF will give a warning every time you save.

 

2. The hackish way

 

If you absolutely need to have the FHP changes (why?), it is possible to keep them. Remove the open D note(s) from the chords, then edit it back into the XML as a note 0.001 seconds before the first chord, and set the correct sustain (if you put it exactly on the chord it seems like the chord's linknext messes things up).

EDIT: Or you could also try to do it in EOF:

I'd go with the simple way.  :)

Rocksmith has so many special rules and limitations it's hard to keep track. If the FHPs are the only problem in the simple solution, you could try just putting a handshape tag around the chords:

EOF won't change the FHP for chords that are inside a handshape and after the handshape's beginning timestamp.

@@raynebc and @@iminashi

 

Thanks for your help guys! It blows my mind every time how helpful this community is.

 

 

I tried removing FHP per iminashi's "simple way", but it didn't fix the problem in RS. Is there a different way to do this than Note > Rocksmith > Remove FHPs? Maybe I was doing it wrong.

 

Used Raynebc's handshape way and that did give me the output I was looking for.

Thanks guys! :lol:

Raynebc can I ask what the Blue box is between the E and A string? I've not seen it before when making stuff mind I've only done 2 songs lol
