Here is tutorial for the new RS2012 --> RS2014 conversion feature. Really pretty easy ...   1) Use unpacker, select "RS2012", check "Decode Audio", click "Unpack", select RS1 CDLC *.dat file and un

Still the toolkit crashes, when I remove an unnecessary tone that I imported from the game (I want to leave just the tones I want).

I don't understood your problem.Toolkit will still crash forever if you not help devs to understand the problem and how to reproduce it.

Ok, so it looks like this: I want to create a custom, so when I import the tones I made from the game files, it will import all tones I made in-game, also these tones that I made for other customs. So, when I remove one from the list - it crashes. When I add the arrangement with the specific list of tones first, it doesn't happen for the tone that made the toolkit crash, but then with others do. I imported a bass tone from other custom and tried to remove the guitar tones and then it crashed too. I don't know the circumstances.

MY WORKSHOP/MÓJ WARSZTAT
Gave up Rocksmith and CDLC making, playing on his own now.

Ok, I received your file, imported tones and deleted all without issue.

What's the version are you using?

 

Try the lastest build and tell me if you get problem again.

It sure does get old having to tell people all the time to try the latest Toolkit build.

 

I just don't understand why people wouldn't think to check and especially if something wasn't working right.

Always check and use -> The latest Toolkit builds

 

To disable dynamic difficulty and not get the 100% accuracy bug don't use the override to max option, but instead disable DD and set sight reading level to Max. With this configuration the 100% bug does not surface.

Anyone else having problems with some random cdlcs not showing up at all on the PS3, but the PC versions work OK...?

 

PS3 custom packages are problematic.

Users can't rename files due to encryption limitation, if renamed it will not work.

 

You need to get file name as song dev leave. If not work in this way, you can try unpack and pack again or convert PC version to PS3 that's solve problem.

Got it, wasn't random at all...All working fine now.Thx for your quick reply, and thanks again for all your time and efforts. :)edit:p.s. I sometimes edit the filename because the converter adds two '_ps3' notations into the converted filename. e.g. 'cdlc_brick_dazz_ps3_ps3.psarc.edat'. When I package my own stuff, all works well with the filename...I am CDO (like OCD but letters are in alphabetical order :) )

All my customs can be found here :)

I finally figured out what going wrong. Everytime I packed my CDLC, the guitar volume kept dropping.

 

And I know why. It's because on the edit sheet, there's a minus sign in front of the numbers for setting the level. And when there's a minus sign, that usually means that the lower the number, the LOUDER it should be. Because the minus sign makes it look like an attenuation setting.

 

It took me a while to understand what the little popup message was telling me -- 0 really was zero.

 

I think you should get rid of the minus sign.

 

Also, any chance you can get rid of some of the OK dialogues we have to click. Like when we import or load a tone, there's a little dialogue that pops up to tell use that we've imported or load a tone, forcing us to click OK to clear it. It's not necessary. And there are a lot of dialogues like that.

 

I had to repack my CDLC a dozen times today (testing out tones) -- that makes for a lot of unnecessary clicking at the end of the day.

Please, send to me one of these packages that the _ps3 is added twice. I'll take a look, thanks

Every time I convert a chart using the toolkit I get the problem.

 

cdlc_killers_whenyouwereyoung_p.psarc -->  cdlc_killers_whenyouwereyoung_ps3_ps3.psarc.edat

 

If I generate my own cdlc or if I import the one I want to convert first, then generate the package the filename comes out fine..

 

See attached http://www.sendspace.com/filegroup/22ochZ7IelUpmMhS1mhu9Q

 

Edit: Why is my linky not working?

Thanks for adding the config manager.

 

@@fabianosan

i noticed if i set in the config manager a value of 1.0 as a scroll speed value that when i want to add an arrangement in the creator tab the scroll speed does have the value missing. Visually its full to the right but the 1.0 is missing, if i manually scroll it to the left and then back to the right 1.0 is displayed.

 

In the config manager tab it would also be nice to been able to have the platform check boxes there too that way we can select a default platform instead of having them all checked.

 

Would it be possible to have in the config manager tab a field where we can enter a default version number?

Ill take a look on scrollspeed issue.

 

About version, default value is 1.

 

About platform, no, is not possible, sorry, as I said before, we recommend to always generate packages for all platforms, not only for PC even with Converter feature.

Well you are right and i dont see an issue with that philosophy because when you download a new version of the toolkit as default all platforms are checked anyway.

 

But if i dont like to have all platforms checked i just go up there and uncheck what i dont like. The good thing about the config manager is that you dont have to do that over and over again.

 

About version, default value is 1. 

Then there is probably a bug because with edb618f401d6 the version field is empty after i add an arrangement.

well if you genegate package without version setup - you'll get v1 as postfix for your cdlc, its just not displayed(visual bug if you whish to say so)

Just noticed "Use zero IV for SNG encryption to fix random package crashes (fixes #112 #145)" Does this really fix arrangements sometimes not working after packaging?

 

If so this is huge! I can't tell you how many times this effects everyone here. So much wasted time repacking customs and happens almost for every custom in one platform or another. If this is the true fix we need a new official version and everyone to know and use it.

Always check and use -> The latest Toolkit builds
