Most likely a broken DTA entry; double or even triple check all your DTAs. I suspect that the problematic song and any song written after the problematic song will not load when there's a problem like

So I have an interesting issue. I know this is older, but maybe someone can help me.   I have a few thousand songs I'm trying to add. I'm on (PS3) CFW 4.81.2 REBUG. Yes, I know the limit is around 300

Things have actually got better recently. Previously you needed an old enough model of PS3 to make it jailbroken. A couple of months ago they released a new hack called HEN which allows to run homeb

So I have an interesting issue. Stairway to Heaven is giving me a problem when I load it up in Rockband 3. It says unable to load song, skipping. Ive downloaded a hundred other songs and havent had this issue with any song but this one.

 

Does anyone know why my PS3 might be giving this issue? Im converting the CON and everything. Not sure what the problem is? Please if someone could help me troubleshoot this. I wanna play one of the most famous rock songs of all time :((((((

If the song doesn't show up it is a DTA error, make sure to check your DTA to see if there's any weird entry for this song or the song before this song in the DTA file.

 

When there's an bad DTA entry the game will ignore every songs after that entry.

I've removed and added this some a few times, alone and with other songs. So when you say the song before this do you mean chronologically or within the group of songs which I add.

Hey guys,

 

Great work!

 

On my PS3 every time i play the song YMCA it loops in the final part and the song crashes, but the ps3 doesn't.

 

I tried the 3 types of encryption and the song freezes too.

Is there any solution to this?

PS. My english is not so good!! =)

Did you try the instructions in the Help section of the PS3 Converter?

 

"4) song plays but loops right at the end before it can finish"

 

"Issue #4 can be solved by using one of the following two:

- click on Encryption Options -> Fix PS3 mogg that causes looping to select a PS3 mogg (after conversion) that loops and allow PS3 Converter to try and repair that mogg - if that doesn't work (i.e. it still loops), then try the following...

- click on Encryption Options -> Fix looping when converting to enable it, then try converting the Xbox version of the song again and it should hopefully fix the issue"

Yes, i tried both steps and still loops.

I uhm... I have a stupid question.

I'm still unable to put CFW on my PS3, so I'm using the PS3xploit HAN Toolbox for OFW 4.82.

I can get a bunch of RB DLC to work just downloading .pkg from somewhere else, but can't seem to find a way to .edat to work on this exploit.

I know that "piracy content" won't be discussed here, but I'm really out of options.

Tons of state-of-the-art custom songs and I can't even try one to know if it's worth the effort.

I have never found a way to make any EDAT file work without installing its corresponding RAP file on a OFW 4.81/4.82 console. AFAIK this was possible on an older OFW version, but not anymore. Sadly I don't own a OFW PS3 anymore for testing so I can't help with that.

 

If you do find a way though, please share. This would mean that people wouldn't need CFW anymore for RB3 customs (Although, this wouldn't be a straightforward and "fast" way to install songs)

Yeah, I thought so.

I don't know how to create a .rap for a custom either.

So I'm very much stuck for life here.

Thanks for the fast reply though.

The rap file is included with C3 CON Tools (both for NTSC and PAL).The problem here is not the creation of the rap file but the installation. Custom songs uses the RB2 Free Pack folder and rap file.

I'm not sure if this RB2 Free Pack is still available.

The problem with PS3 using the PS3xploit on OFW is that you can explore the folders, but can't manage files.

For instalation of any custom content, only through package installation.

I think I read some way to resign and build a package from edat files, but still gotta try it.

I saw the NTSC.rap, but I was uncertain if that would be the one mentioned in the tutorial.

Using PS3xploit you should be able to inject files in game folders, I've done it before. (It's been a long time ago, I don't really recall the process)

You can also try TRUEancestor backup injecter.

 

The problem was that the game couldn't unlock the midi file for use because there was no way to install the rap file. The song would show up in the songlist (because the game can read dta file no matter what) but once you select it it would skip the song with a popup.

 

Both rap files are valid, you just need to rename them before installation (if such thing is possible). There should be a klic.txt or klicense.txt file in the bin folder of C3 CON Tools, it contains the original name of the rap files.

 

One thing you could try if you already "bought" the RB2 free pack on your account: Inject the songs and do the backup recovery process then once in-game (or anyways, in PSN store) re-download the RB2 free pack, wait for it to unlock and then cancel. It could or could not work, it might just delete the folder too but if not it might just activate the pack, worth the test.

Worth mentionning that this test can be done with any RB DLC you bought with your PSN account as long as you have the rap file and the klicense for it. You can swap the rap file in C3 CON Tools and the klicense in the txt file to use any, these are used to encrypt the midi files.

I'm sorry if this has been discussed before but I couldn't find a solution anywhere.

 

I have downloaded a couple of songs to add to my existing library (as usual) and I also decided to remove a couple of duplicates from my songs.dta file. What that resulted in is new songs not showing up at all in-game, even though their entries are clearly in the .dta file (and the quick pack editor recognizes all of them). I don't have a backed up songs.dta file from before the new songs were added, which I imagine would resolve my issue (however the duplicates would still be there).

 

Is there a trick to editing the songs.dta file that I don't know? Why does my game only show SOME of the songs from that file on the song list? Some, to be precise, means all of them but the 4 new songs.

 

 

EDIT: I did some research in my DTA file using CON tools and I found that these songs now have song IDs conflicting with my other songs (for some reason). My question now becomes: how do I resolve song ID conflicts?

 

EDIT: I ended up manually changing the song IDs in the DTA file to increments of the maximum ID value in the file. I don't know if that's the proper way to fix conflicts though.

The issue was the PS3 songs converter restarted the enumeration (that might be because of something I did wrong along the way) and the new songs conflicted with some of the old songs I had downloaded. After manually increasing the song IDs above the maximal existing values the songs did show up.

The song before I mean when you open the DTA in a notepad (or any text editor) it's the entry right before in the order that you are reading it.

Wiz Khalifa - See You Again

I've tried removing the song before. And it doesn't allow this song to show in the library. There are songs after that show in my ps3 library. Curious if there is anyone on ps3 with this song working or even showing in the song library?

Maybe you figured it out already. But I have it working on the ps3 and it shows on my list. Likely an encoding error when you convert from con
