Or, I could try to bundle the Ziggy-upgrades with the songs, again. This time, it worked (and together with RB: HP-upgrades) just fine! xD

No problems as for now but... Harmonies for Walking On the Moon by The Police have different ID than the original file. Should I be concerned?

 

If you have a chance, can you submit this as an issue on the repository? That way I won't forget to double-check it on my end. ;)

I don't know why, but for some reason, it's as if upgrades for Lego songs are somehow being rejected (after manually upgrading everything else).

 

I've tried to upgrade all songs once, and I tried a second time again now. Nothing. Then I thought I could package the upgrades. I put the Dummy and Custom in USB, together with TU4. All LEGO upgrades show up. Shutting down Xbox, reconnecting hard drive, deleting the song cache built on the hard drive. UpgradePackage and TU4, everything else is in hard drive. Starting up the game, cache builds for all songs, going into Quickplay... No upgrades for LEGO songs? They were there on the dummy, proving that upgrades should work.

 

I don't get it... What could have went differently by upgrading LEGO songs when I've done the exact same thing on everything else? And even UpgradePackage doesn't work (it did, before I learned to manually upgrade songs and relied completely on UpgradePackage)... I swear, it's like the game suddenly started to reject those upgrades...

Chances are the hard drive is read before the USB drive is read? Try moving the cache from your USB to your HDD before starting the game after reconnecting your HDD again. And then don't forget to remove the dummy afterwards.

 

Regardless, this is why I went with manually upgrading all of my songs. Always works, no messing with the cache and Dummy files.

I feel really dumb after reading this thread.  For quite some time I was wondering why the hell is Boston "More than a Feeling" freezing on me after installing the RBHP + optional upgrades.  Well its the damn official Pro Guitar/Bass upgrade file is whats conflicting.  Glad to have finally figured this out.  What would be the best way to convert all my official Pro Guitar/Bass upgrades files so they act like the unofficial Pro Guitar/Bass upgrades found in the RBHP optional folders?  I would like to delete all of these official upgrades off my harddrive and install them via the RBHP packager method where we trick the song cache.  Then I would imagine no more console freezing will occur when picking these types of songs that have official Pro Guitar upgrades.

You weren't the only one who was a little slow on the uptake, so don't feel too bad. :)

I believe you would use C3 Con Tools to extract the MIDI and upgrades.dta files from the pro upgrade package and then add those to the RBHP directory for pro guitar.  For songs like "More than a Feeling" where there will be other upgrades, you will need to merge the MIDI tracks and the upgrades.dta information into single files.  REAPER and C3 Con Tools again can help you with this.  One small caveat: when merging MIDI files, make sure you import the tempo map from only one of the files, and also make sure both files import starting at measure 1.

 

I say "I believe" because I actually went a slightly different route to solve the problem, one that is probably less kosher and probably less likely to work with TU5, but for what I wanted it works well enough.

 

Edit:  And now I see that was posted in May.  Oopsie.  Oh well, I'll leave my answer here for anyone else who might stumble along.

Thanks for the tips on doing this.  I was waiting for the next RBHP release for me to tinker with these songs that have pro guitar/bass and harmonies upgrades.
