Hi folks,

 

We're now officially in maintenance mode. Though I will be releasing new upgrades provided to me, I will not personally be authoring any new tracks (e.g. RBN tracks) -- or, honestly, playtesting those submissions beyond a cursory Reaper review -- for the foreseeable future. I'm just not playing much RB3 anymore and have been doing most of my review/testing with RB4, though I do plan to boot RB3 up to record any outstanding videos once review is complete.

 

Note that the move to GitHub has required/necessitated I rename the Optional Upgrades folder, removing the dashes. If you have an existing "-- Optional Upgrades" folder, rename or delete it to match to avoid conflicts.

 

This release does feature two new keys charts, which I will shamefully admit I have not tested:

 

Rock Band DLC 2008 Keys Upgrades

* Boston - "Smokin'" (Linos Melendi)

 

Rock Band DLC 2009 Keys Upgrades

* Evanescence - "Bring Me to Life" (Linos Melendi)

 

Beyond that, this patch features a bevy of fixes, which I will detail below, and some tweaks to a subset of the upgrades.dta files' metadata to ensure proper author attribution and versioning (version 1 being, perhaps incorrectly, the version released on the 'final' release).

 

Fixes, not sorted by year because I am too lazy to look that up.

* 30 Seconds to Mars - "The Kill" (Adjusted hidden lyrics to avoid overlap in one section.)

* Alice In Chains - "Heaven Beside You" (Adjusted one note tube's timing.)

* Alice In Chains - "No Excuses" (Removed extra + lyrics.)

* All-American Rejects - "Dirty Little Secret" (Added missing + lyric, adjusted one tube's length.)

* Angels & Airwaves - "It Hurts" (Fixed H1 phrase markers.)

* Avenged Sevenfold - "Nightmare" (Tweaked a couple of lyrics and fixed PMs.)

* Boston - "Peace of Mind" (Removed erroneous extra lyric event.)

* Boston - "Something About You" (Fixed several note tubes touching, removed extra + lyric.)

* Breaking Benjamin - "Diary of Jane" (Fixed hidden/visible lyric issue.)

* Buckcherry - "Rescue Me" (Adjusted timing.)

* The Cars - "All Mixed Up" (Added missing + lyric, fixed misaligned lyric elsewhere.)

* Children of Bodom - "Are You Dead Yet?" (One phrase was 1/128th late - moved it.)

* The Cranberries - "Linger" (Switched hidden/visible lyrics around.)

* The Cult - "She Sells Sanctuary" (Added many missing + lyrics, fixed phrase markers, fixed one broken phrase.)

* David Bowie - "Heroes" (Split one note tube and made it a slide.)

* David Bowie - "Moonage Daydream" (Adjusted pitches in several spots.)

* Evanescence - "Call Me When You're Sober" (Removed some extra + lyrics, slight timing tweaks, fixed one lyric's text.)

* Fall Out Boy - "I Don't Care" (Removed extraneous lyrics/notes.)

* Foreigner - "Juke Box Hero" (Adjusted one note tube's length, and pitches on two others.)

* Franz Ferdinand - "Lucid Dreams" (Adjusted hidden/visible lyrics to help with this cluster[expletive] of a song.)

* GLaDOS and Jonathan Coulton - "Still Alive" (Fixed note tubes touching.)

* Gorillaz - "Re-Hash" (Adjusted several phrase markers, adjusted timing on a couple of tubes.)

* Iron Maiden - "Can I Play With Madness" (Fixed capitalization of a lyric.)

* Iron Maiden - "Wasted Years" (Adjusted note tube lengths. Quantize issue.)

* Jimmy Eat World - "Sweetness" (Adjusted "listening" lyric on one spot to better fit audio.)

* Judas Priest - "Screaming For Vengeance" (Removed extraneous percussion section phrase markers.)

* Judas Priest - "(Take These) Chains" (Fixed tube length in one spot.

* The Knack - "My Sharona" (Fixed pitches for two notes in outro. Off by a semitone, iirc.)

* The Monkees - "Last Train to Clarksville" (Added two missing lyric events.)

* Mötley Crüe - "Face Down in the Dirt" (Changed hidden/visible status of a few lyrics.)

* Mötley Crüe - "Saints of Los Angeles" (Adjusted phrase marker.)

* Mötley Crüe - "Slice of Your Pie" (Fixed capitalization on some lyrics.)

* Mötley Crüe - "Time For Change" (Removed extra + lyric.)

* Mötley Crüe - "Without You" (Phrase was accidentally split. Fixed that.)

* Muse - "Hysteria" (Removed several extraneous + lyrics.)

* Nazareth - "Hair of the Dog" (Adjusted a LOT of pitches here. Think there were some issues w/ tuning_cents I didn't catch.)

* Nickelback - "Rockstar" (Moved lyric timing.)

* No Doubt - "Bathwater" (Weirdly I had "Can't help" instead of "Can't help it" in several places. Changed that.)

* No Doubt - "Different People" (Adjusted timing for one tube.)

* No Doubt - "Don't Speak" (Adjusted two tubes' timing/placement.)

* No Doubt - "Ex-Girlfriend" (Made several lyrics talkies on harmony parts, iirc. That or fixed the pitches.)

* No Doubt - "Happy Now" (Adjusted timing for one tube.)

* No Doubt - "Hey You" (Several minor pitch adjustments.)

* No Doubt - "Just a Girl" (Timing adjustments in several places.)

* No Doubt - "Sixteen" (Timing adjustments, added several missing + lyrics for slides.)

* No Doubt - "Spiderwebs" (One pitch adjustment.)

* No Doubt - "Tragic Kingdom" (Timing adjustments and one pitch adjustment, by a semitone.)

* No Doubt - "World Go 'Round" (Proper casing for one lyric's text.)

* No Doubt - "You Can Do It" (Adjusted timing for several tubes. Quantize issue.)

* Papa Roach - "Time is Running Out" (Fixed two "Time" lyrics that were erroneously hidden.)

* Queens of the Stone Age - "3's & 7's" (Adjusted one set of lyrics/tubes to better fit vocal.)

* Queens of the Stone Age - "Sick Sick Sick" (Adjusted timing slightly in a lot of places, changed hidden/visible lyrics.)

* REO Speedwagon - "Take It on the Run" (Removed extraneous + lyric.)

* Rise Against - "Prayer of the Refugee" (Added some missing notes/lyrics, tweaked hidden/visible lyrics.)

* Rise Against - "Re-Education (Through Labor)" (Adjusted timing, capitalization.)

* Rise Against - "Savior" (Adjusted hidden/visible lyrics. Removed dupe part.)

* Rob Zombie - "Dragula" (Added missing harmony part that was on H3 before it was removed. Removed extraneous phrase markers.)

* Roy Orbison - "You Got It" (Adjusted H2/H3 mapping.)

* Rush - "Limelight (Original Version)" (Removed percussion phrase markers.)

* Serj Tankian - "Beethoven's C***" (Adjusted timing on one tube.)

* Siouxsie and The Banshees - "Kiss Them For Me" (One tube's timing. Possibly? I think I may not have adjusted it after all.)

* Smashing Pumpkins - "Zero" (Adjusted some phrase markers.)

* SpongeBob SquarePants - "I Can't Keep My Eyes Off of You" (Removed extra phrase marker, adjusted pitches on two phrases.)

* Styx - "Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)" (Changed one lyric to a talkie.)

* Styx - "Renegade" (Fixed H2/H3 mapping.)

* Styx/REO Speedwagon - "Can't Stop Rockin'" (Tweaked some lyric weirdness, removed phrase marker.)

* The Stone Roses - "Love Spreads" (Adjusted timing on several note tubes.)

* Taking Back Sunday - "MakeDamnSure" (Extended one tube. Quantize issue.)

* Toby Keith - "She's a Hottie" (Adjusted several pitches.)

* Weezer - "Buddy Holly" (Shortened one tube to better align w/ other parts.)

* Weezer - "El Scorcho" (Split phrase marker that I forgot to split.)

* Weezer - "The Greatest Man That ever Lived" (Hid one lyric, added missing + lyric.)

* The White Stripes - "You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You're Told)" (Added missing + lyric.)

* The Who - "Who Are You?" (Fixed note tubes touching.)

* Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force - "Damnation Game" (Fixed phrase markers.)

 

I'll be continuing to test out tracks going forward until I've played through every song once in RB4; note, however, that the April patch HMX released fixed a bunch of issues with charts (mostly small stuff, like misalignments), and I don't have a list of those fixes. It's entirely possible I won't fix an RB3 issue because it is no longer one in RB4, so if you happen to catch anything I don't, please open an issue on the RBHP GitHub (https://github.com/rbhp-espher/rbhp).

 

See you guys in a few months, or w/e. :)

Does this fix the crash while playing "The Broken" by Coheed?

I couldn't spot/repro a cause for this but I'll dive back in if you're still seeing it after a rebuild.

 

Edit: Just in case there was any weirdness, I just went and re-exported the .mid and am re-uploading the master/2010 packages with that file.

For Bring Me to Life I left the first measure blank since Harmonix had the song start right in 1.1.00, which would leave people unable to prepare for it, so I hope that is acceptable.

 

Here's video previews of the Keys upgrades

So with "Smokin'", is the organ solo still charted to guitar as well?

 

Edit: Nevermind, the guitar animations during the solo answered that for me.

Yeah, can't really touch that since it would affect the leaderboards and all.

Yeah, I was realizing that was a pretty stupid question after I asked it.

Thanks, I've always had it since the last build but i'll do a new song cache in a couple of days and see if this resolves it, thanks a ton again!

Awesome - Linos, any objections if I include those videos on the spreadsheet for the keys charts/parts?

Not currently, no - I wasn't ready to compile that from the however many tracks. :3

On the GitHub will there be a 2nd quarter branch or should I just place any submissions to the master one?

Sorry - I was trying to make a branch and it was not cooperating. Then I got tied up with some other crap and forgot. I'll try it again here shortly.

I finally started charting keys for legacy DLC. I'm charting only expert normal keys, due the complexity and my bad skills playing pro keys.

 

Right now I have added keys to followings songs

 

RB2 - Almost Easy - Avenged Sevenfold

RB2 - We got the beat - The Go-Go's

 

There many songs I have that needs keys, can't remember which ones right now. I will list what songs I'm going to work.

 

Also I want to know how to modify exactly the DTA to set tiers, so if there is some documentation for Keys upgrades let me know

I finally put the time into loading some the old harmonies on to my PS3.  Very straight forward process to follow although a bit time consuming to find and manipulate the dta files.  But worth every minute of it as it brought new life to some old pre C3 standards last night - so I am definitely not complaining.  Hard to think I've playing plastic guitars frightening the neighbors pets with my singing for 9 years now.  Many thanks to the contributors to this community for all of the time they put into producing everything.
