Yes, you read that title right. Rock Band 2 Customs were found recently. And I'm not talking audition mode or something like that. Customs much like how we do with Rock Band 3. Except with one added thing... Online!
Basically, the current (after fine tuning some of Acai's methods and modernizing them) process is generally this:
Take midi and fix it up for RB2 (i.e remove keys and other extraneous tracks, remove non-rb2 compatible notes)
Rebuild song in Magma v1
Extract files from the produced RBA
Do some more fixing up, prepare to build file
Put onto flash drive (usually via RBtoUSB)
Plug flash drive into xbox and load up RB2
Now, as mentioned before, this works online, which is the main selling point for me and a bunch of other people.
Over on Team Triggy Stardust, we have gone for a few custom Full Band FCs. Now, we have a few people doing conversions whenever we feel the desire to. However we're still encountering lots and lots of Magma v1 errors (shocking I know), but we're able to get around them with enough time.
Except the issue of Magma v1 not allowing you to do anything longer than 10 minutes. None of us are coders, so we can't really do much with that.
Now there are two reasons I'm making this post:
1: Obviously, so anyone who WANTS to know about this can.
2: I want to know if anyone here has any desire to try to help us find ways around stuff. A C3 (or at least updated) version of Magma v1 would be very helpful, as the current Magma v1 is just a chore.
So, is there anyone here who is interested in this and/or would like to help us?
Here is a link where you can find any conversions we're already done thus far, as well as where you can make a request for a conversion.
(If you feel this is in the wrong forum section, feel free to move it to where you feel it fits most)
Here is a link to a video on how to convert (with the method to get multiple at once as well as section names). It's mostly updated now. We're still discovering new stuff so if enough gets found that we decide warrants another video, another shall be made (likely by me that time, as we seem to be going in a cycle of who makes the video).
If you do any conversions, PLEASE PM a download link of them to me, and keep them somewhere on your file host that you won't delete them from! I will add them to the spreadsheet and use the link you sent me for them! Just please make sure you use to process for making them compatible with others as used in the video above.
