As of right now I don't have any update charts nor do I know what people are working on. So if anybody out there is working on giving me some updates please let Oscarj08 know what songs of his your working on so you both don't end up charting the same song.

Yeah I've done quite a few of those for pro keys. PM me the files when you can. :)


Yeah, I was at one point considering doing all of "Awake" (honestly my second favorite DT album, with SFoM being #1 and IaW being #3), but I was thinking that C3 would probably beat me to it. In fact, I was going to do a third track from Black Clouds and Silver Linings (that I won't mention nor give any clue towards), but I actually got a PM from a C3 author who told me he was currently working on that song for a future C3 release.

As is, I've sent "The Count of Tuscany," "Endless Sacrifice," and "Breaking All Illusions" to Sideshow for release after Porcupine Tree 01. Given that I only have vocals to do on "A Change Of Seasons" and the last half of Bass on "Never Enough," half the pack may be out then. Or it will be steadily released over the course of May.



I hope you're right lol. Awake is definitely my favorite DT album

Also just curious, how much 22-fret pro guitar is in that one song?

I have the 17 fret button guitar instead of the "real" one


Probably around 20 or 30 notes are in the 18,19,20 fret range. I can easily just make all those high fret notes 17's but it wouldnt be right in terms of playing the actual guitar tab.

In other news:

If you build it, it will come ;)

Omg. Whenever Breaking All Illusions is up, expect a CAT of it that day. Haha. Anything dream theater that isn't C3 release related lol

Hey, just want to let you know that the pro guitar chart for "Normal" is a little messed up: About 5 minutes in when the heavy part starts there are a bunch of chords with no numbers on them that don't work (I think they are supposed to be played on certain frets, but the numbers don't show up) similar to Anesthetize

Thanks for letting me know although Magma didn't tell me anything was wrong. I would need somebody much more knowledgeable in Pro Guitar to look at the chart and see whats going on.

This is the start of the heavy part on Pro Guitar. Looks like the chords have numbers in Reaper :confused:

I tried just randomly holding 5 across the board for a few seconds in the section and some of the chords (which ALL appeared to have no numbers) worked and some didn't. So I think the game knows the numbers, it just isn't showing them for some reason.

The same thing happened in anesthetize in some places

Oh by the way, the game freezes when I try to play Time Flies on pro guitar. Pro bass works fine

Don't mean to sound like a big complainer, I appreciate the work, I just want to inform you

I'm going to go thru your files, and try to do some more. :D


I'm gonna try to do Pigs (3 Different Ones) by Pink Floyd and "The 12 Step Suite" by Dream Theater. :o


"The 12 Step Suite" is not going to work for reductions. I barely have notes on the lower difficulties just to get the song to compile. If your going to do Pigs (3 Different Ones) I recommend deleting the (prc_intro) text event located at the beginning of the "EVENTS" track. That way people can actually practice the song. I messed up on a whole bunch of customs and left that one event in by accident. All my most recent customs as of the "Dead Wing" album don't have it. If I do any updates to my older songs I will make sure that text event is gone.


"Pigs" will be in the CAT Redux Pack: Sideshow Edition.

Sorry for mentioning a song, that you have probably been long done with for over a year now, but is Neverending Story all difficulties? Con Tools say Expert Only, if that the case would you mind doing a quick and simple CAT reduction.

Thanks in advance

That makes sense because I compiled it for a 22 fret pro guitar only(Squier). I could make a 17 fret version(mustang) but it would require a ton of time reducing many sections on the guitar down an octave. I could easily just make all the 18,19,20 fret notes to 17's but then the chart wouldnt be correct.

I'm not sure if that's the cause, I've played some customs that only have 22 frets using my 17 fret guitar and they don't freeze, I just can't play the high notes...

I believe the one I played is RBHP Foreplay/Long Time pro guitar upgrade

Although maybe that is it, I have no idea.

The reason the Pro Guitar is freezing is because I didn't compile the song with a 17 fret chart. If I just bypass the midi validator in Magma and compile the 22 fret chart as a 17 fret it should work for you even though the Mustang can't hit those notes. I'll update the song soon so you can test it out. I appreciate you helping me with the Pro Guitar charts because hardly anybody else seems to play them or give any feedback at least.

UPDATE: Give this version a try and get back to me when possible. If it works for you I'll just take down V1.

Hey Sideshow, ever think of charting some Haken or Devin Townsend? :o Only reason I'm asking is because it seems you share the same love of prog as I do. :D

I just wanna find CONs of theirs to reduce, or FoF/PS files to put into Magma. :o So, if their is more Haken/Devin that i'm not aware of, link me? :P

This version doesn't load on anything. Album art is blank, no audio preview in the song menu.
