Notice about changes in the Toolkit beta

Recommended Posts

  • Developer
There are some changes in the latest beta version of the Toolkit to the way chords are handled. They were mainly made to fix this issue:




This has some implications to making customs:


1. "Hi Dens" is now meaningless. You can forget about it. It is a leftover from RS1 that is never used in RS2014 ODLC. Where you before needed to set chords as "Hi Dens", now you only need to mark the handshape.


2. A few things that you could do before no longer work.


-Cases such as this where you have manually marked a handshape and a repeated chord would need to be displayed as a full chord:




Your options are to either remove the handshape or give the second chord a different name which technically makes it a different chord.


-You can no longer set the first chord of a handshape to be displayed as a repeat panel (high density) anymore. This is never done in official songs anyway.

I have seen it happen unintentionally in some old CDLC repaired in CFSM:




3. Chords inside arpeggios can now be implemented in EOF like partial chords inside handshapes are implemented.



If you come across anything broken regarding chords that you think should work, please post here.

Is hi dens" option in EOF still needed to maintain backward compatibility with RS1?  I know not many are using RS1 anymore, but the toolkit can still create RS1 CDLC and now handles conversions from RS1 to RS2014.

Are you tired of AV False Positives???  Now accepting donations on my website (Click Here)  Your donation will be used towards buying a code signing certificate.   CGT is now compatible and safe to use with Rocksmith® 2014 Remastered ... 


Latest Build of Custom Game Toolkit (CGT) w/ Game Save Gigbox       Latest Build of Rocksmith Toolkit       Latest Build of Customs Forge Song Manager (CFSM)


All bug reports and help requests please include your: OS, CPU, AV, .NET Framework versions along with a description of the issue (include screenshots of error if possible).  It should go without having to say ... make sure you are using the latest build before submitting bug reports or asking for help.


*  Remember to use your magic words (please and thank you) if you would like a response.  Don't use phrases like 'thanks anyhow' as it is demeaning.

As for frethand mutes that start a handshape, the Toolkit currently makes files that would look different if you were to play them in the non-Remastered RS2014. The first frethand muted chord would be displayed as a full chord whereas in Remastered it would be a repeat panel.


This could be easily changed though.
