Rock Band 3 customs aren't just for Xbox players. Wii players can get in on the fun too with none of the online accounts, title updates, or real/fake DLC hassles. Be patient and follow along with the

do you have an idea please? thanks

Yeah, I'm getting that problem too. I was led to believe the new one would work. I'm looking into it. But yeah, the common key file is missing and I'll put that part back in the guide.   Thanks for jo

If you're really all out of room, you could try to set up sZHP. I don't think anyone ever got this working for some reason. The NTSC version of this gen works but PAL, I'm not too sure.

 

I was the one who got sZHP working, as I informed you on Discord, Stack, though you may not remember as it has been a while. I set it up on two different PAL Wii's and it worked fine for me.

 

If I recall I ended up renaming the sZHE wad to sZHP and using a hex editor to change all instances of sZHE in the wad to sZHP, and it worked.

I'm looking to get custom songs set up, but I'm having trouble with the very basic first step. I downloaded and expanded the sZGE.rar folder on my Mac, but it doesn't have any folders, let alone the "two folders with numbers in their name" mentioned in the original post. Instead, it holds 15 files, including "00000001", "common key", "cygcrypto-0.9.8.dII", etc. Am I supposed to be downloading a different file? I can't figure out what I've done wrong here.

It doesn't include the sample song, but any Wii custom can go in there for you to test. You need to prepare the files that are included there first, which means getting your console ID and writing it into ng_id.txt and finding the common key and updating the placeholder file with the actual 16 byte key.

Thanks, that helped me figure a lot more out! However, custom songs aren't showing up after deleting MSTORE, and I feel like the issue was from one of these two files. Following earlier instructions, I got the ng_id from an official DLC file, and the common-key is a 32-character string from the internet. Are these the correct entries? Should I be inputting my 16-digit console ID anywhere?

 

If these aren't the issue, I'm not sure what else I could be doing wrong. I put the two resulting bin files into the sZFE folder I created, deleted MSTORE, and booted the game, where my official DLC was reloaded as expected.

Hello All,

Is there a Gen E wad unlock file? I have been trying to update my RB3 and went into the store and noticed that there were songs that had not been purchased. Upon looking around I noticed that the wads only go up to Gen D.

We do not provide illegal files, you'll have to use google if you want to unlock that gen.

Okay thanks. Can't really find anything on rockband anywhere.

 

On another topic I downloaded the uniiloader from you on page 65 but the rar file is password protected and I dont see it in the forum. Do you know what it is?

I can answer this one, at least. Neogamma will be your method of disc play for customs. I have a guide for setting this up from MUCH earlier in this topic: http://customscreators.com/index.php?/topic/14630-how-to-playing-customs-on-wii/?p=119551

Thanks a lot!!

I now managed to convert my first batch of songs to .bin files and set everything up as you described in your post! Thanks for sending me there ;)

But I have run into the problem that Rockband 3 does not accept my SD-card it is a 32Gb SanDisk Micro SD with a SanDisk Adapter. It works fine with everything else, just when I start the game and it asks "Save add-on content on the SD Card?" it tells me that "The device insterted in the SD Card Slot cannot be used?" and that SD Card mode has not been enbaled.

Is that a known issue with certain cards or am I just unlucky and need another card?

Thanks for any suggestion and help!

 

Also formatted it a few times (exFat and Fat32) as I had all kind of stuff on it. So right now it's only the apps folder. Tried it with an empty private/... folder.

And I formatted it without "Quick Format" (Found that somewhere online).

Okay figured out my mistake here. You have to load a specific version (56) into ios 249 to make it work.

Now RB loads from the SD card but it tells me that my dlc is "corrupted" and the bin files are being deleted (I am using disc and sd card here)

 

I have my Wii ID (from my BootMii NAND backup) and the common key (for wii from the internet and the forum). Any ideas what could still be wrong?

Try putting the customs (.bin files) in the folder "sZGE"

If you don't have it, just create the folder. (Putting the customs in the folder "sZGE" is how I solved the same problem that you have)

Hope this works for you ;)

So basically rename private/wii/data/sZFE to sZGE? And I guess change the file patch in the songs.dta?

 

Edit: That did the trick! Awesome. But now I am getting "The License for Add-on Content has been deleted from the Wii System Memory, to use the add-on content redownload Add-On content for which the license has been previously purchased"...

Just going from one error to annother :argh:

Edit2: Okay installed the sZGE wad with YAWMM and the songs show!!! But they "... cannot be restored to the Wii System Memory". Do I need the sZFE wad as well??

You have to reset the cache. (The error is when you try to play a song, right?)

Taken from the OP: "If you're getting a "Content cannot be restored" error, this usually occurs because either the _song folder may be missing, or the _meta folder is not structured properly."

 

As for wad files, you only need the wad files for the generation(s) you are trying to use, the one you entered in the dta file. Your sZxE folder should match whatever you wrote in the dta file (or vice-versa) and well, you should install that wad file.

 

Also if you're using sZGE, you should start at slot 001 probably, since this is a custom generation, there are no slots used by official DLCs in there.

So, I dabbled around the newer dolphin version, and there's an interesting thing happening with AIM on: the game crashes on difficulty selection.

 

Not sure exactly which version is safe so I'm gonna stick with my old ass 4.0-9399 version lol.

Someone else was having the same problem. Not sure what's going on. I just tried the latest version as of now (5.0-8785) and everything seems to work fine. In fact, I even saw a tutorial pop up for regular Keys, which is something I never saw, even on console.

 

 

I'm experiencing this crash on the latest 5.0-9293. It only happens when you have "Concentration Mode v2" on and turn on All Instruments Mode. Either of those without the other seems to be okay.

 

I'd love if perhaps the Gecko code could be fixed because it seems the newer Dolphin versions have a feature to dump frames at internal resolution (not window size) which would be very helpful when recording videos.

So I'm in need of some guidance. I feel like I'm close to figuring out the customs and have read through about 70 of the 144 pages but I must be missing something.

 

I'm using Dolphin and my Imported NAND from my Wii. I've installed the SZGE.wad the folders are there. I've copied versions of customs I've made that had multiple songs merged and got the Can't Import Error. I started fresh and just tried to make 1 song and can get the 1 song imported but then it disappears before actually loading.

 

I have tried it with both the SZGE and SZHE and can't get it to stay. My version of RB3 is SZBe if that makes any issue but I didn't think it did.

 

I copied the 26.app to the folder and the title like instructed. My only issue is I've only 1 time gotten the packer to actually make BIN files. Is that my issue?

Thanks!

As far as I know no one was able to use the custom generations (sZGE and sZHE) on dolpin.

Using dolphin, you can use app files which can hold alot of songs in a single slot, so you can either use the unused slots in sZFE if you want to keep DLC slots intact or just use a DLC slot from sZAE or whichever generation you want to use.

The only catch is that we do not provide activation files for these generation because this is technically piracy. You can find them using google and whatnot.

If you use your real wii's NAND every slots that is unlocked on your real wii will be unlocked in dolphin.

Alternity...Ill try looking into what you were saying. I havent looked too much into the locked/unlocked slot stuff. I started just doing the way where Stack was saying to start with 52/53 so Im assuming that it was high enough into the unlocked zones.

 

I was a bit confused on how many songs you can put into a VirtualNAND environment. Are you still limited to the 500kb Meta folder limit? That was capping out at about 12 songs for me it seemed. Or is that more for the Wii only?

 

I easily had $300 worth of DLC on my PS3 before it went up in Smoke so its frustrating to play the game without all the DLC I used to love playing and no way for my kids to play it without buying another PS3. Was a cheaper alternative to buy the game for our Wii and RIP it for Dolphin. Its a racket that you buy the DLC on one system but they wont let you transfer it to another system for the same game.

 

Im building a 4 player arcade machine for the family that Id love to have them play everything on. Including the Rock Band Rhythm games.

 

Thanks for your help!
