You'll get there buddy! I'm at Expert up to about 4 star difficulty, and I can usually at least 4 star a song there. When I'm sober. On guitar, bass, or vocals. Practice is all you can do!

Logged on to accept the invite last night. I still donít know how the crew stuff works really but I hope I donít drag you guys down a rank or two! I mostly play guitar but Iím practicing on the drums more. I can fc easy songs on guitar and generally not fail out on most of the rest. Itís feels a little pointless sometimes seeing the guys who can just do every song flawlessly but oh well.

You can only add to our scores, not subtract, so it is no biggie. We just hit Bloodstone, so we don't actually have to do anything for the rest of the season, but normally it is just getting on and playing some of the challenge songs for the week to add to our XP. The more people we have doing that when it matters, the less likely it is that Zedd will have to play 150 songs in a week.

Nah I got 3. It was obvious they were only going to be limited run and itís the only option until someone makes a really decent Xbox 360 emulator. Or a similar bit of software that runs the files on the PC.

Update: what you did in quickplay and what you did in career mode are separate in the game but you can't tell what you did only in quickplay or career, so you need to just go down the list until the trophy pops

I actually really like both the new songs this week. The Dua Lipa one is fun on drums for a scrub like me and the Not Paramore one is fun on guitar and I cannot play it on drums for the life of me. Plus they donít sound like poo poo, which is a big step up from the screamo/metal stuff they usually push.

Also Iíve heard rumors of a new rock smith game being in the works. Possibly to have been revealed at the cancelled E3. They seemed to have a bigger budget than rockband with dlc updates so maybe theyíre gearing up for a next gen release.

I borrowed a friends 360 so I could play some quarantine customs using my old hard drive with my dlc on it and a thumb drive with customs. The customs all work fine, but none of the dlc will play since I canít connect to the internet without updating away from title update 4. Is the only way to play my ~800 DLC songs to individually redownload them all?

Simmer definitely has a bizarre pattern, the snare in particular is real tricky

I finally 5 starred Blood and Thunder on expert pro, so thanks quarantine for that I guess. Don't know that I'll ever gold it or High Road but that won't stop me from trying

I've been improving too, which helps. I'm getting more 5 stars in Expert. Is Orange still around? I beat his high score on some song I beat Orange's high score on "Good" by 16 while points, which always feels good.
Also did goon cru consolidate again? Because Smash Moth is filled with randoms now.

Two options:
1) make that 360 your primary and redownload everything again

2) convert all the official DLC to CON format using the C3 CON tools and then itíll work on TU4 but not on TU5 even when online

Is there an easy way to pull the dlc off of the hard drive? That definitely seems quicker than individually clicking through hundreds of songs to redownload. I did that once when my first 360 died and that was more than enough.

Pop in a USB stick, format it to the 360 format and I think you can copy everything over in one go?

woah, you look
REALLY pissed off...


Having just done this in the last couple months a nice bonus is if you have song packs where you don't want some of the songs you can just strip them out too, and also you can just unpack every song and put them into giant megapacks so instead of the game loading up 800 pieces individually in my case it loads 8. Don't know if that messes with anything besides having the 2GB per pack filesize limit.

Sorry this isn't strictly Rock Band related, but I'm posting here anyway because at this point I associate the song in question more with this video game series than anything else. A band that I like (and maybe-probably kumba likes too) released a stonking great cover of the best RB3 on-disc track. Perhaps some talented charter will custom it after Hamdix stop releasing official RB4 DLC, which if we're honest can't be far off now.

I love Riley McShane, Allegaeon is my fuckin jam. This is a real good track.

I also prefer their version of Subdivisions to Rush's

Riley also did vocals for Son of Aurelius' second album "Under a Western Sun" which is such an underrated masterpiece it's loving criminal

Looks like more of a well considered game than Dropmix was, which is to say it will be more fun to dick around with making lovely mashups with no effort than it will be to play for score. I'd love for it to be fun as a game, but honestly if it's as fun as dropmix was as a toy that would be fine too. maybe wince it doesn't rely on nfc to switch tracks you'll be able to consistently get little snippets of a track, like maybe one phrase of a vocal track to come in on time and then go out on beat too.

There's no real danger in customs. If you try to play one in TU5/a MadCatz disc the game just boots you back to the dashboard. Just get TU4, turn down the update and you're good to go.

not legally but if you obtain the files you can convert them to CONs using the C3 CON tools and they'll work like customs
