3. Plug your flash drive back into your 360, turn it on, and enjoy playing Rock Band 3 custom songs :D
If you are still connected to the internet it will tell you an update is required for Rock Band 3. Just press B or select "Cancel".


Ok, so I've followed the instructions (twice) to the T, and selecting B or cancel here just backs the game out and I land at the 360 dashboard. What gives? I haven't tried yet unplugging the network or something like that, but I'd rather not TBH since I still use the xbox for other things.

The update is of course for TU5. I've tried letting it complete, going back to the storage dash, and moving it over to USB just to manually delete it on the PC just as the original instructions thought... no dice.

Under settings somewhere on dashboard there was a feature that was added on latest dash regarding updates disconnecting from live etc can't exactly remember what the option was as i only play 360 at my mates now but check for this and change it to the opposite option and it will work

I really don't understand why people choose to follow different paths than the one we laid out years ago and that works everytime. One stick for TU4, one stick for TU5, only things on the HDD are the official DLC.

I figured a majority of people wouldn't bother with TU5 anymore after getting involved with playing customs.
Anyway, I just added an optional step to setup a second flash drive with TU5.


No, I understand that and I really appreciate the effort of posting info on the new system, it's just that instead of just replacing the step of copying over files, which is the only thing different from the time we created the full length tutorial, you started from scratch, and some of the important aspects of customs installation we covered got lost, including the 2 keys system. ;)

Interesting, I will look into this.

Regarding TU4 vs TU5 sticks, I may not fully understand - if I have a stick with TU5 (I don't really need it since I'm getting into customs), does that trick the xbox into thinking that I have the TU5 updated somewhere so that it doesn't attempt to force-install? Or is my Xbox rare in that it's behaving as described above.

I definitely appreciate all the feedback and particularly the forum posts. I'd been dicking around with customs for a month or two now and while getting it to work was always sporadic the most frustrating part was scouring through the internet and this forum looking for the latest and correct method now that Party Buffalo appears to be out of the picture. So thanks, gents/ladies!

Alright so that's all I had to do - in the 360's System Settings there was an auto-downloads function turned on. I never saw the need to disable it, but that's all I had to do in order to be given a choice to both back out of an update as well as pick a storage location.

Sucks I'll have to select it each time, but oh well. Thanks for the help!

It's not a "trick". The XBox 360 looks at all attached storage to determine what updates, DLC and save files are available for the game currently running. If you have TU5 on an attached USB stick, the game will see it and use it. If you have TU4 on an attached USB stick (presumably a different stick), the game will see it and use that instead. If you have both TU4 and TU5 on attached storage, TU5 will trump TU4, and TU4 may get deleted (not entirely sure how that process works, but at any rate, only TU5 will take affect).

Create a new, local-only user account without an XBox Live membership. As long as you log in with that user, the game will never look for updates and never prompt you to download TU5. You can then switch user accounts the same way you switch memory sticks when you feel like playing online, posting scores to the leaderboards, or doing anything else that requires TU5 and network access.

Followed the tutorial but I've been trying with a few customs and nothing has shown up in game at all. Everything shows up in RBtoUSB although the Xbox menu shows the drive as empty.

Sounds like your Xbox dashboard isn't updated.

I assume if you can play online things will be up to date? I'll check again anyways. This looks like a new thread so not sure if someone else has had the same problem somewhere else. I will keep trying regardless.

EDIT: It works now. I changed nothing. It just works. I guess I shouldn't question it...

Hi, so I get how to do everything. got the song to appear on in my game, but once I try to play it, the game says "this disc is unreadable".

My problem lies in TU5. I looked under all my RB files on my hard drive and don't see it anywhere. TU4 was there but no TU5. I havent played online in a while, but do play online to update scores and such frequently. I feel like I have it but can't find it and that's the problem.

Anyone have any advice for me?

Thanks

If you've played online is because you have TU5. If you have the Games on Demand version of the game, you have TU5 baked into it. If you have the Madcatz branded disc, you have TU5 baked into it. If you have the MTV Games version of the disc, then you have TU5 somewhere else. It can be on the Xbox's internal memory, on the hard drive, or on any flash drive connected to it. Make sure you've removed it from all of those potential places.

Ok, I'll have to really look. I do have the MTV branded disc (bought the game the day it came out). Looked through all my Rock Band files on my HD. Just don't see it. Hopefully I can find it.

Thanks!

One thing I did notice is that while I do have the EA version of the game, the Madcatz logo comes up when i start up the game (when it didn't used to). I just looked at the front of the game and it is 100% the EA version (no Madcatz logo to be seen; and EA/MTV are on it). I am assuming this is coming up because I havent deleted TU5?

I can't find it anywhere I look. I only have the one HD connected to it, and have gone through everything. This is a bit of a piss off!

Thanks for your help though!!

Correct. It may also be conflicting if you have both the EA Games disc and the digital copy of the game.

I cleared my System Cache and that did the trick. Don't know why I didn't think of that before. Got everything to work. Just played Everything by Michael Buble (my wedding song) for my wife, might get lucky tonight, lol

Thanks a bunch!

It looks like the C3 CON TOOLS link in the OP is broken?  It just redirects to the front page of the forums for me.
