Rocksmith 2014 CDLC convert PC / Mac - osx app released


Recommended Posts

After getting some requests / feedback I decided to publish my simple app to convert CDLC between PC and MAC. The details and download link can be found from this url: https://github.com/glebb/rocksmithconvert

Here's a short video on how it operates: 

 

 

The version now is 1.1, but I don't expect it evolve much from this, besides bug fixes. Besides converting, it can be used to create short-filename versions of cdlc files.

It should work on osx versions starting from 10.12 (Sierra). If you have any issues, please reply here or report an issue on Github page.

New alpha version released for testing. Complete rewrite, now with proper UI, saved settings, auto-processing and overall faster processing. 

This is more of a hobby project for me, so if version 1.1 works for you, no need to update (unless new features such as auto-processing seem interesting). As this is in alpha stage, expect bugs (please report them as github issues).

no gui shows up for me, what can i do about it?

I pushed a new release (2.0.0-alpha4 - 03/20/21). It's a test version which tries to address the GUI not showing up, but so far I haven't been able to reproduce the problem myself so there's no guarantees for the fix. I'd appreciate if you test it out and report back whether it works or not.  The version 1.1 is still the latest stable version, you can always use that. You can download it from the github releases page.

I'm not seeing any GUI either, but 1.1 seems to work a charm. Let me know if you need help debugging 2.0.

All help is appreciated, thank you! First of all, can you see whether 2.0 opens anything on the osx dock? It should pop up two icons/apps there, the one with platypus on yellow background (same as version 1.1, Rocksmtih 2014 CDLC convert pc mac) and then the actual GUI which on my system looks like a terminal window with green "exec" text in it (RSConvert_GUI). These should also show in system monitor.

No second icon/gui:

but something is happening:

Killing the app causes both processes to go away. I've got a feeling that first one shouldn't be using 99.9% CPU 😄

Interesting, thanks for this. I didn't explain myself properly earlier, but that icon right next to the platypus one (on right) is the second icon I was asking about (with the text exec on the icon), and those processes "RSConvert_GUI" are both related to that (that's the actual program running two processes). 99.9% seems a bit excessive though, yes 😄 I think I need to compile a debug version to get some more specific data on what's going on. It clearly goes into some sort of infinite loop hogging all the cpu, and if it doesn't even show the GUI it's probably related to the GUI framework. What osx version are you running by the way?

One thing you could try to do is to run the RSConvert_GUI from terminal. In order to do this, you should open the terminal to the folder where the app is located and then:

cd "Rocksmith 2014 CDLC convert pc mac.app/Contents/Resources"
./RSConvert_GUI

That should keep the terminal window open and if we are lucky, it might print out some additional information about what's going on. Anyways, even without that you have already provided me some very useful information. Thanks again! I hope I can make this work, as I personally really like this new version much better than the earlier one.

Ha! I wasn't paying attention and thought that was an iTerm window I'd left open. Running the gui from inside the app Resources folder shows the exact same behavior. 2 process, with one still pegged at 100%. No visible windows.

I'm on OSX 11.2.

Aha, it seems like there might a problem with the PyQt5 library and Big Sur. My macs are so old that they don't even run Big Sur so I haven't been able to test it with it. There seems to be some workarounds. Stay tuned for update 🙂

New test release available. As I don't have Big Sur, it's kind of a blind fix but let's see if it does anything: https://github.com/glebb/rocksmithconvert/releases/download/2.0.0-alpha5/Rocksmith.2014.CDLC.convert.pc.mac.2.0.0-alpha5.zip

Seems to be working flawlessly! Thanks so much!

Awesome! Thank you for helping me test it! I never knew it had issues on Big Sur before this.

Hi there,

Many thanks for this. It looks like it converts, I can see the song in my library, I select it to play it, it goes to tune guitar and then I just get the screen with the pic of the two amps on it and it stops there.

Would love to get this working as my Mac is indoors and my PC is out in the cold garage!

Thanks,

Nick.

Hello. It sounds like the patch to play cdlc is missing. Have you tried (re)installing it as described here: 

 If some cdlc are running fine (directly downloaded as mac versions), but only the ones that are converted with my tool are not, please upload some example songs to e.g. google drive so I can take a look what might be wrong with them (original and the converted file).
