#124110 The Beatles Discography Project

Posted by Farottone on September 27, 2015 - 11:20 AM

This project aims at releasing the complete Beatles discography, full band. Anybody is welcome to contribute, but these will be the rules everyone contributing will be asked to follow:

1) Quality of releases will be C3 levels, which means songs will need all C3 requirements and only those. For those who are not aware of C3 requirements because they are independent authors we will either take care of polishing the charts up or instructing them on how to do it depending on volume of work.

2) Contributions, WIPs and final CONs will not be shared to the public until we are ready to release according to the schedule we will set for ourselves. That means that no single song will be released individually if we decide to release full albums only and no albums will be released individually if we decide to release the entire discopgraphy at once.

3) "Claims" are timed: if you claim some part of this project to work on, we will be very happy, but it will be good for 30 days. :) After that time we can decide to give you more time but by default your claim will be dropped and anybody else can work on it. Please understand that this is necessary to keep a solid schedule. It's nothing personal, see point 6.

4) Contributions are subject to vetting. We can not guarantee all you do will be used, it's conditional to how well it's done, how much time we would need to fix it, etc. We will work hard to fix your content if it needs fixing but please know that we might say "thank you very much but we can't use it" in some cases. It's nothing personal, see point 6.

5) Your contributions are final. If a girl named Yoko tells you you're too good for this project, all you've delivered will belong to the project and will be used (with proper crediting of course). Please understand that no exception will be made: if you commit to release something and deliver it, you can't take it back. It's nothing personal, see point 6.

6) No one is greater than the project. Once we commit to this, our objective is to release the discography. If you feel like your contributions will be more important than the final objective please don't contribute.

For more information stay tuned, for now this is a quick placeholder to let people post in the right place, after End of Days we will revisit everything.

#1000035181 C3thon Day 30, spot 3 - C3thon Finale!

Posted by Farottone on November 23, 2017 - 06:07 PM

30 days, 90 releases, one beautiful cause

Forty C3 authors come together to ask the help of the community to make childrens wishes come true in the first ever customs marathon

C3 is a group of passionate Rock Band players that was born in the aftermath of Harmonix bidding goodbye to Rock Band 3 DLC releases in April 2013. We wanted to keep the interest in the game alive by providing new weekly content and at the same time protecting Harmonix original work by not allowing distribution of any official produced content or copies of that content.

When Rock Band 4 was in development it was also our privilege, through the amazing work of C3 Founder espher and the interest from the management at Harmonix, to contribute to the renewed interest in the game by producing all harmonies for legacy content that was not yet supporting them.

We love the work of Harmonix and on a daily basis we encourage people to buy content for Rock Band 4 and Rock Band 3 and we are proud to do so. Now that Rock Band 4 with its Rivals expansion has garnered an amazing following, Rock Band 3 has a niche but passionate audience of people who play Rock Band 4 and buy content for that game but still come back to the old platform to play keys and to enjoy some great user generated content.

And its for that audience and for everyone who loves the game that today we announce a new initiative that we hope will get as much support as possible. C3thon is a 30 day customs marathon with the goal of raising as much money as we can for a good cause. Over the 30 days leading up to Christmas, 40 C3 authors will tag each other in and out to release content every 8 hours every day from Friday, November 24th to Sunday, December 24th. The community will receive a new release (singles, packs or albums) from a different author 3 times a day.

Here is the kicker: for every song you download that you would have downloaded even if you had to pay for it, we ask you to donate 90 cents to the cause that we have chosen, the Make-a-Wish foundation. Make-a-Wish*helps children and kids fight against life threatening diseases by granting their wishes, giving them the strength and the will to overcome their illnesses. This is a fully fledged honor system: if you can donate were infinitely grateful, and if you cant you are free to download as many songs as you want. Every single donation though will help us reach a bigger goal and help people who need our support.

The following is extremely important: money goes directly to the Make-a-Wish foundation without us putting a finger on it. Donations are collected by the foundation itself using the RallyBound platform. This is crucial to us: we have chosen Make-a-Wish specifically because they have their own collection system and we are not involved in any way in that part of the process. Make-a-Wish is an excellent foundation, rated very highly on Charity Navigator if you want to check it. You dont have to trust anybody else with your money: we have no part in collecting donations at all, we are only here to raise awareness and ask for your help.

During the month of November up to the 24th we will release more information on the initiative, including some special events we have planned and we look forward to a huge turnout. We will also introduce you to the amazing group of authors who signed up for this project with a passion that cannot be overstated. For now, just know that you should start saving up because were going to give you plenty of reasons to donate!
* We are in no way affiliated or partnered with Make-a-Wish, we only set up a fund raising for them.

#62465 C3 CON Tools v4.0.0 [01/25/18]

Posted by TrojanNemo on April 29, 2013 - 04:06 PM


A collection of tools to create new CON files, modify existing CON files, combine multiple CON files into packs, edit existing packs of CON files, visualize a song's information, convert CON files to Phase Shift, Wii and PS3 format, and much more. Also works with LIVE files.

This was inspired by Le Fluffie, and it became Le Fluffie for RB3, then Le Fluffie C3, and so many versions and features later, we are now calling it C3 CON Tools.

Updated change log with latest features and changes can be found here:
C3 CON Tools v4.0.0 - Features & Changes

Unless you're coming from a really old version of C3 CON Tools, you should extract these files over your existing installation so no settings or important files are lost. DO NOT INSTALL IN PROGRAM FILES.
C3 CON Tools v4.0.0 - WinRAR archive [mod note: extract the files with an archiver like WinRAR]

(this is a bit outdated but still very helpful if you've never used C3 CON Tools before)
If you intend to use these tools, you should really spend the hour and watch this tutorial video below:

Microsoft .NET 4

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010

32-bit Java Runtime (if you use the PS3 Converter)

Norton Antivirus is a piece of crap software that insists on relying on reputation values for programs to determine if they are high risk (potential malware/virus) and removes them. It might tell you that about C3 CON Tools. You decide whether I'm trying to give you a virus or not. You can have Norton ignore that one file or just change AV to something less shitty :)

I hope you're as excited to use this as we are to share it with you.

#1000011194 NSW1-6's WIP/Progress Thread

Posted by nsw1-6 on July 8, 2016 - 11:49 PM

Hello, nsw1-6 here! Around July 2016 I finally decided to lay out a WIP thread to keep my progress details separate, and not clutter my main thread. Most information here will regard tempo mapping, fretting, and individual instrument progress. My work is currently done using Edits On Fire, but I've moved to Reaper for finalizing charts. I'm also getting assistance from other members here to prepare full-band customs for RB3.
PLEASE notify me of anything that has been done already in FULL BAND. I will be on the lookout as well (and be heartbroken when ninja'd) All my charts will be Guitar/Bass/ProDrums/Vox, depending on instrument availability. ProKeys and Harmonies will be added if doable. ProGuitar/ProBass are done in rare circumstances. These are authored EoF first, and then they will be prepared for RB3/C3 in Reaper.
You can also tell me to pick up the pace on something as well. Demand must be met with supply!
Nothing - Announced on a pack list, but have not started anything with it yet, talk to me if you want to do it or are already working on it and I'll concede.
Syncing - Currently in the process of tempo mapping this chart
Synced - I've tempo-mapped this song and began work on instruments, (Rough) qualifier means a rough job has been done and still need to finish it. Doing a map roughly helps me speed up work on grid-snapped instruments.
Finalizing/Keys - All the base instruments that are my responsibility are done, but the ETA (estimate time of arrival) depends on if I handed it off to someone or am doing it myself. It's at this stage I finalize vocals, and add ProKeys and Harmonies.
FIXING - Chart previously released by me, but being fixed at the moment (most likely this means I'm fixing the tempo-map). Also used if I'm upgrading a chart that I know needs fixing.
To be upgraded / Upgrading - A chart of this song previous exists, either here or on the FoF Forums and I am going to do or currently doing tempo map fixes or adding instruments.
(Laid out) - IDEAS ONLY: Means that I have songs listed that I'm interested in doing for a pack, but haven't started or willing to announce yet

G - Guitar
B - Bass
V - Lead Vocals / HARM1

H - Harmonies

PD - ProDrums
PG - ProGuitar
PB - ProBass
PK - ProKeys
Partial Collab - I am working with someone, (un)specified, where they will be doing chart checking, adding venues, helping with conversion, reductions, all the little bits, or in some cases adding ProKeys.
Collab - I am working with one or more people on something, and they will be contributing instruments
Current Focus:
This be the artists I am currently focusing on. Their stuff is more likely to be released first, but I may work on other things in the background. Should be updated every month or two.

Regarding Files:
I understand that most of this forum works with Rock Band customs, but please understand that most of my work is prepared for FoFiX/PhaseShift. I'm beginning to learn to use Reaper, but I am still comfortable and skilled with using Edits on Fire, which automatically creates the midis for Rock Band separately. Base work will be done in EoF first, then sent through Reaper for finalizing. Anything I'm too lazy to finish will be converted to RB3 by others.
Regarding Audio Sourcing and Quality:
In the past, I have had complaints about audio quality, and knowing that this being a more professional forum, there are higher standards to quality.
Please understand that nearly half of my music collection is taken from used vinyl records, all of which come from by-gone eras, and includes a lot of the music I intend to chart. Every vinyl I possess has been cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and digitally transferred using Audacity with click and noise removal applied. The degree of success on this depends on the quality of the medium (i.e. the amount of scratching, roughness and skipping). Thankfully a good portion of this music has come from my parents' collection, who took really good care of their records.
Hence, most of my records are free of terrible quality, though I have had cases of really bad copies (Journey's Infinity, Traffic's Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys), cases of copies that could be better (Jethro Tull's Aqualung, Yes' Going For The One and Genesis' The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway), and cases where I need to redo the digital conversion (Vangelis' Albedo 0.39 and a few others). The only other issue here is the effect on the tempo, which can be due to the mastering on the record itself.
If I have determined (or asked by others) that the vinyl source is bad enough, then I will try to find another source for the audio, or anyone here on the forum is free to help provide it. To give warning and compensate for any of these issues sourcing information for each song / pack released will be included, and any additional modifications made.
Regarding File Quality:
My charting abilities have evolved over the years, ranging from not fretting enough (long ago), to about 2012-2013 when I was over-charting. It was only since mid-2015 that I really started to hone on what was being played. This is directly related to training my ears, but believe me, I have noticed that the biggest culprit here can be the mixing quality.
My methods of tempo-mapping have changed as well, again only recently starting to really ensure that it is done properly. I was able to chart fast and properly for a while, but I found that it really depends on how tight the musicians stick to the tempo. Sometimes charts were worked over a period of time, and some packs may include songs where I did not go back and fix the tempo maps to be as pristine (i.e. the Kansas pack, see notes for other songs in WIP Thread).

#1000043549 How to use official Rock Band 3 songs for Phase Shift?

Posted by Jebzz on August 8, 2018 - 07:58 PM

(Sorry if this is the wrong forum, this seemed like the place with the people who would know best, but if I should take this to Phase Shift forums, I will)


I know you can use Rock Band 3 customs on Phase Shift, but is it possible to use official Rock Band 3 song files on Phase Shift? I have a RB3 Xbox 360 copy, so I wouldn't be pirating them or anything, I just want to know if I can somehow get the song files from the disc and add them to PS. Thanks!

#1000043509 No Adam Ant/Adam & the Ants songs?!

Posted by NJMusicman79 on August 7, 2018 - 05:57 AM

I find this rather surprising.. The very first album (Dirk Wears White Sox), which was recorded with the original lineup, is especially a great choice (the original release, not the 1983 remix), especially the following songs:


Cartrouble (Parts 1 & 2)


Whip in My Valise

Digital Tenderness


Now if you went with the more popular stuff, I'd suggest Antmusic, Stand & Deliver, and Physical (You're So) (the re-recording, not the original release from the Dirk era)

#1000043088 [How-To] X360 Customs on PS3 4.82 OFW Han Exploit

Posted by yaxes on July 22, 2018 - 09:00 PM

I spend whole day trying to make customs work on my Super Slim, and i didn't found any other thread about it, so i guess i'll do this.
As far as i know, this is the only way to play customs on OFW, which doesn't require Free Pack 1, neither logging in to PSN, so there is no risk getting banned.
Pics proving that it works

We'll need
C3 CON Tools
USB stick (if you know how, installing pkg through local network works too)
PS3xploit-resigner (for purpose of this tutorial, i'll assume you know how it works and you've already dumped your idps and act files, if not, you're propably using different exploit, here is the perfect place to start)
this package

For the first time, you'll need to run C3 Con Tools and select PS3 converter, this will create folders you'll be using to convert your songs, after that create empty text file called songs.dta in "C3Con Tools\ps3\Merged Songs" folder, you need to do it only the first time, after that everything will be done by C3Con Tools automatically.
Converting customs

Putting our customs in a custom package

If you want to save some space on your PC, you can delete the songs from Merged Songs folder, be sure to delete only songs folders, and to KEEP the songs.dta file there, otherwise after installing new songs, previous will disappear, even though they are on your PS3 disk.
Credits to clayson from psx-place forums, for his modding Skyrim guide which helped me a lot while i tried to make this work, and to TDCMark for this thread. If anyone wants, you can copy, share and modify this tutorial, just be sure to credit me :)

#1000042816 C3 neXt generation

Posted by Farottone on July 16, 2018 - 05:58 PM


The biggest revolution in custom songs releases since 2013 launches September 21st and brings together the entire community

More than 5 years ago, C3 revolutionized the world of user generated content with a stream of commercial grade weekly content that lasted for 2 and a half years. We launched that project with a simple tag line: "On April 9th 2013, everything changes". C3 retired as a release group after Rock Band 4 was launched, almost 3 years ago, leaving fans wanting more content but with a thriving authoring community growing and creating amazing projects. Today we are excited to announce that the thrill of weekly released content is back with the biggest community project since April 9th 2013: everything changes again, C3 is going neXt generation!

"C3 neXt generation is a collective effort with our entire community of authors to reboot weekly content and keep players and authors alike engaged week in and week out"

Legacy C3 is something that can't be brought back: it was a unique experience for a unique time, when Harmonix had stopped releasing DLC. That's why C3X will work in a slightly different way. Content will not be released as a group, rather we will welcome under the community umbrella any author who wants to join in. We will work with them to help them get better if they need and we will screen their work to bring to the public good, functioning, proper content, but ultimately authors will be responsible for the quality of their releases. To reach the widest audience possible, we will not limit ourselves to Rock Band 3 releases but we will also release for Clone Hero/Phase Shift, and we'll be discussing with Clone Hero's best charters a way to join together for a collaborative effort.

No more releases: we tour the world!
The most exciting part of an already incredibly thrilling project is that we're gonna take you on a tour! No more weekly "releases": C3X is going to be a series of amazing tours! In every tour (that will last for months, up to a year), every week is a tour date. Authors will choose which venue* will host their set to reflect the content of the setlist. Alternative niche songs? The venue might be a pub. Mainstream content? It's a stadium! Tour legs will be announced in advance with all venues and you can try to guess what's coming up based on locations. Every tour also has explosive kickoff and last show events!
That's not all: watch out for special events like festivals, that span over several days, and holidays. And to add awesomeness to awesomeness, check out the tour dates and guess what the setlist will be for each date by reading the hints we hand out outside the concert! The Tour concept will keep both authors and players entertained giving a unique new touch to the customs community.

September 15th: the album that started it all is coming out!
If you've been with us lately you already know about the huge news: C3 Generations. 100 songs divided in 10 records from the most diverse assortment of community authors ever put together. That "studio release" will kickoff C3X with a bang! Authors are already working overtime to deliver amazing content for that project that is sure to make our first tour a huge success! And while assembling this 100-song beauty, we have already secretly selected so many amazing hits from the incredible assortment of songs that were submitted for the project. All authors involved in Generations that had more songs than the ones selected, or no songs at all, will get their chance to shine with the Tour!

So much more is in the works...
With this announcement we have barely scratched the surface of what we are working on. Both the Tour and other C3X related activities have so much more going on than we announced and we couldn't be more excited about everything we are putting together. We already discussed and planned more features for the Tour and for X in general and we can't wait to tell you all about it. The neXt generation of rhythm gaming authoring begins in September and it will transform our world forever!


You're a player: now what?
Right now you need to do possibly the hardest thing ever: wait! But during these 2 months we will also drop news on C3X, on the Tour and everything, so we can promise you it's going to be a fun summer! So much stuff is going on behind the scenes and we only announced a portion of it, so stay tuned!

You're an author: now what?
This is the most exciting time to be an author since a handful of people founded C3 in 2013! Behind-the-scenes work has already begun to lay a path for the future and we need YOU to make it happen! Jump on our Discord right away and contact one of the following C3X admins to join:

  • Atupomaruru
  • BansheeFlyer
  • Kueller
  • MrPrezident (all booked!)
  • Mr. Cellophane

They will tell you all about what we need from you and what you will get for being part of this exciting new adventure in the next few weeks. We're gonna help you grow as an author if you need help, connect with the players base and deliver amazing content.

But wait, who's working on C3X?
Current C3X Management is:

  • Atupomaruru
  • BansheeFlyer
  • Farottone
  • Ghostbyob
  • Kueller
  • MrPrezident
  • Mr. Cellophane
  • Septekka

During the next months and years we will work to build an even stronger group to create more and more events and develop new ideas!

So, who's ready to go on the ultimate Tour? On September 21st everything changes... again!

*No, they're not in-game venues, they are real life venues where an author's setlist virtually takes place








1st update: Discover the Tour concept!

#1000042214 Questions About Customs Search Bar and the Legacy Database

Posted by Etholux on June 26, 2018 - 07:01 PM

​    In the Customs search bar, I think there might be a bit of an error. For example, when I search for the artist 'Toby "Radiation" Fox' no results are shown. However, if I search 'Megalovania' then it shows a song with the artist name 'Toby "Radiation" Fox'. How come This issue is occurring? Am I missing even more songs when I do searches for Artists? Also, what is the difference/history of the Customs Database and the Legacy Database? From what I've seen, there are fewer charts in the Legacy Database but I don't know why the Customs one is separate.

#1000042199 Sly Cooper request

Posted by Robebubop on June 26, 2018 - 01:19 AM

Hey fam, it's my first time in the forum. I'd like to request one of the most iconic boss battles from the entire Sly Cooper saga. It's the Mz Ruby rythm battle. It's one of my favorite songs and I think it would be very fun to play it.

here's the song, the "epic" part begins at 3:28 and it finishes at 6:40.

I really hope to see this custom in the near future. Thanks for reading.

#1000042184 Drum animations not being read by game

Posted by ninikee456 on June 25, 2018 - 06:12 AM

Hello again fellow charters/authors,


I am having troubles yet again with the drums. This time with the animations. I am using CAT to author in the drum animations via the playable gems etc. but, but for some reason, the game is not reading the notes at all, and leaves my drummer idling like an idiot, just stiiting there, Anyone know why or what this could be? It must be something in the reaper settings, obivously. I can delete the animations and try having CAT do its thing again, but it just leaves me with the same results. Any ideas? Any help is greatly appreciated! :smug:  :smug:  :smug:

#1000042164 How to have two guitar players playing the same part?

Posted by zargorn97 on June 24, 2018 - 06:10 PM

I finished my first custom over the last couple days (hurray!) and it's working great. However I'm looking to create a second guitar part that mirrors the first so that two players can 'compete'. I can't quite tell if this is possible to do and looking to get some input.


Hopefully this isn't too dumb of a question. I thought about creating a secondary version where the bass part mirrors the guitar part which would do it, but would rather be able to select a secondary guitar part somehow. Thanks for any advice.
