Hey all,
 
This is my first CDLC and my first addition to this ever growing community. I fucking love Amon Amarth and this is a song i've been playing around with for a while. So i thought it would be a great addition to move it from tab to game. However, it seems i suck way more when trying to read it in the game :P
 
Anyways, this being my first CDLC i certainly made mistakes i would like to clean up!
 
Known Issues/Questions:
  • My phrasing attempt didn't seem to work and the entire song came out as one. I saw there was a thread about labeling phrases... i'll take a look at that tomorrow.
  • I made a custom tone but am getting a lot of crackle when the guitar is idle. I generally play with my physical amp, so i'm not sure whats going on here. It could just be because the distortion is a preamp. If anyone has some advice here I'd appreciate it.  Please note: I set the tone with my Schecter Blackjack Baritone with Seymour Duncan Blackout pickups. 
  • There are parts of the song that need to have palm mutes for the notes. The author of the tab in guitar pro didn't label them as such. Does anyone know if i can add palm mutes to notes in Editor on Fire?
  • There is one part where i seemed to have skipped a note i'll come back to....
  • Amon Amarth seem to have been all over the place at times with their BPM shifting from 125, 128 and 130 at different and random times. i tried to make up for it and mask it as much as possible.
  • I'm not trying to act like i'm awesome at playing guitar or anything, but i do notice rocksmith has a really hard time registering low notes at times. When i'm playing this song, sometimes it'll be saying i'm missing a note when i know for a fact my finger is in a good position on the fretboard and being plucked on time. Does anyone else experience this from time to time? The biggest culprit is anything on the first fret - especially in Drop D, C Standard and B Standard.  
  • Any time i play this song my Rocksmith profile goes corrupt... i have my profile backed up luckily but its annoying... any ideas here? Could it be because of the Custom Tone that I authored and packed up with the song?

Anyways excited to wrap this up this weekend, any C&C or general feedback/bug reports welcome!
 
Thanks

3. select notes and hit "control+m" you'll set those notes as PM (palm mutes)6. Use high tension strings (fat 13 at least) than your tuning would be more accurate (be careful those strings eats your frets more than light strings..)7. You can try to use my tone presets for AA songs(look at Generalsnus workshop) dunno anything about corrupted profile, we had 2 topics at our forum about that.

Yeah loos like the profile going shit is another issue... even with vanilla installs.

i'd love it if someone could test to make sure this CDLC isn't causing it for them though. Repro steps are easy.

  • Backup your profile data first - mine is in "C:Program Files (x86)Steamuserdata7745533221680remote" you'd see something similar, just backup the latest file ending in '_prfldb'.
  • Download and install CDLC
  • play CDLC once
  • exit game
  • load game back up and try to go through the menus

If someone could test that for me I'd really appreciate it...

 

going to try to fix some other issues and get this tone less shitty tonight, then do the rhythm and bass sections.  Thanks for the tips!

ok so got hte palm mutes in and fixed some stuff thanks!

 

i got the bass and rythm in too, i've tested and the lead and rythm work fine!

 

however, i don't have a bass - also, i wasn't sure how to set the tuning for a bass to BEAD in the guitar toolkit? does anyone know how to do this? Also, i don't know what tone to do, i looked into Generalsnus' tunes but didn't see one for bass.

 

I'll try to tweak my tune a bit more tomorrow and add lyrics... i don't know how to add lyrics though, will need to look into it.

no i just kept backing up my profiles then one time it just magically started working fine... i have no idea what happened, i've transferred this to other machines too and it hasn't messed up... could've been some fluke mistake for all i know..
