cdlc for mac search engine barely has any...


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm switching back and forth between playing on a mac and a pc. 
I am trying to duplicate my files on both systems and I am having issues.

On the cdlc search engine, there are lots of song formatted for mac.

When I click on those to download, many now don't offer a selection of platform. They only offer psarc files.

In the past I had to download m_psarc files to work on Mac. Since most songs are now listed on multi platforms but only available to download on psarc does that mean I no longer need the m_psarc files? or does it mean the users who upload songs claiming multi platform but in reality it's just pc?

 

Here's an example: search AC/DC highway to hell from Gizmo. clearly states all platforms

when you click to download, it takes you to the medifire site to exchange the file but the only file availabale to download is a psarc file, there's no option for a m_psarc file...

Help

Never mind guys, I thought it would be faster to re-download via the CDLC search engine but because there are so many songs reported as multiplatform when they really are not, it turns out it was faster to convert my 900 somewhat songs representing 6 gigs via the toolkit than re-downloading the songs. I wish when people create a CDLC they would do it fully...It's not that much harder to create the tracks for bass & rythym, adding lyrics and making it available on all platforms!

@@Alain24601 The rules state for the main link to be for the pc version, so most of the time clicking download will give you just pc version.

 

The mac/console downloads should in the release notes or the main link will sent you to a folder with multiple versions. But the hyperlinks are only clickable if you click the "view record page" button.

 

"Since most songs are now listed on multi platforms but only available to download on psarc does that mean I no longer need the m_psarc files?"

 

You still need ya m_psarc files, but I think you figured that out already.

Ok, here's another problem I've encountered. I hope there's a fix for it.

I transferred my library over to the mac. Now 60% of the songs doesn't show album artwork and when I click on it, it disappear!

All my stats are listed, ie how many times I played the song, my score etc...

Also some other songs have the album cover and they just crash.

Any solutions out there? What I did is run my files through the toolkit to convert the psarc to m_psarc and this is the result I have...

Thanks

The only time I've had this issue is when I modified a song when the game was running, it disappeared when I selected it and had no artwork.

Closing and reopening the game to rescan songs might fix it.

 

Or since you've converted them maybe the old p_psarc files are still in your dlc folder and need to be deleted so it can load just the m_psarcs.

 

Also double check other mac custom songs work to see if its an issue with ones you've converted or just songs in general.

 

(I don't have a mac or another platform to test these on BTW, I'm kinda just guessing hope it does something useful).

 

If none of that works send me a file that doesn't work and I'll try to see if I can find out whats wrong with it.

There are no pc file anywhere I converted and exported/imported in separate folders. I'm keeping my library in both format separately.

 

So many have no art work and when you click on them they disappear. Nothing happens, the selection goes to the nest one and so on and so forth.

Thus far, I got tired of it, even those with artwork and mp3 playing, the song crashes right after tuning.

How can I send you a file?

Thanks

Crashing after tuning is caused by not patching the game for cdlc or a dodgy song (I think)

 

Do ya know how to use google drive/mediafire or should I pm you my email so ya can send it as an attachment?
