Nice to see it building up. I'll help any way I can.

Keys upgrade added for "Witch Hunt (Part III of Fear)".  With this the entire Moving Pictures album has keys upgrades.  Only "Limelight" has nothing to play, and that's only because someone (Harmonix or the band or the record label, I don't know) didn't include the keys in the song's stem collection.

 

If you're not interested in keys and are somehow still reading this anyway, I also added an entry for "Witch Hunt" in the Song Info Fixes folder, with vocal tonic bits.

 

Why not chart the cover?

Why not chart the cover?

 

I could do that, and I may do that before it's over with, but right now the covers are very low on my list.  Since only keyboard players would benefit, I doubt even then the song would get played often in a group setting.  But we shall see.

 

In the meantime, I've added a keys upgrade for "21 Guns" to my fork.  Thanks to StackOverflow0x for starting this one and helping polish it up.  He and I have others in the works, so stay tuned!

 

Note, "21 Guns" is one of a handful of songs that have upgrades on the actual Rock Band 3 disc.  The official download files for "21 Guns" do not have harmonies, not even the Green Day Rock Band Plus export file.  Consequently the harmonies are supplied by the game disc (either the RB3 disc or the GDRB disc, depending on which game you're playing).  This could pose a problem to people who add the keys upgrade using the RBHP process, similar to how problems arise when the RBHP process is used on pre-RB3 songs with pro strings upgrades.  I can't say for sure because I haven't yet tried the RBHP process on "21 Guns" myself.  I can say that there are other means to add the keys upgrade to the song, and those means do play nice with the on-disc harmonies upgrade.  I suspect explaining the alternative is a little beyond what would be kosher to talk about here, so I'll leave that as an exercise for the reader.  We might all get lucky and the RBHP process works fine anyway.

Excellent choice. Thanks! I bundle my upgrades by hand so I can't really confirm if this will play nice with the normal method.

Keys upgrade added for "Chop Suey" from Rock Band 2.

 

I'll warn the keyboard players now, there's a blistering little section that will make people wonder what kind of sadist would chart such a thing.  I decided the section was short enough to fall just barely on the side of "fun challenge" and not on the side of "painful exercise in futility".  I'm pretty sure those nimble-fingered enough can play it one-handed.  For the rest of us, there's no shame in mastering an extra bit of coordination between two hands.  I've even made sure the song can still be gold-starred, barely, without a perfect play of that section.

Life is a zoo... happy to see the fork, though. If I get the cycles again maybe we can make it 'formal' (that or I can pass RBHP off!). :)

 

In all honesty, if you want that fork to become the lead I'll change my links to point to it. I'm way too tied up with other gaming-related things and non-gaming related things to feel confident that I can commit (as if the last year and change wasn't a hint) and I haven't booted up much in the way of RB anything as a result.

Awesome to see you back Espher.  I'm hoping you find the time to release another RBHP update sometime this year.  All those drum fixes to official DLC songs that I submitted should cover most of the major issues on Pro Drums.  Would also be cool to see all thee Rush keys upgrades get implemented.

Made a Keys upgrade for "Eye of the Tiger" from Rock Band 2

Video preview for anyone interested.

 

Also FujiSkunk, (assuming I did it right) I sent a pull request to your fork for the last 2 upgrades I did.

Gosh, a couple of surprises here.  I might need a moment. :)
 
First...

I believe I successfully accepted your request, so both the "Let's Dance" and "Eye of the Tiger" upgrades should be in my fork now.  Thank you for those.  It's nice to have everything in one spot, and it seems this might be that spot, because...

Like Sideshow said, it's great to hear from you, espher, especially with such kind words!  It's maybe a teensy bit sad to see you've been distracted by other shiny things, especially at the same time Farrotone and others are stepping back, but no one can fault anyone for sticking to what they find fun and fulfilling.

 

I've PM'ed you for some other discussion.

 Sideshow, if you'd like, I can look at those drum fixes and then add them to my fork for the time being.

Thanks to a little a lot of help from StackOverflow0x, we now have keys upgrades for six more No Doubt songs: "Bathwater", "Don't Speak", "It's My Life", "Just a Girl", "Spiderwebs" and "Sunday Morning"!  All six charts are pretty fun to play, in my humble opinion.  Some fans may recall that the keys solo in "Just a Girl" was charted to guitar.  We decided not to try and replicate that for actual keys, but don't worry, there is still another keys part that we did chart.

 

Comments welcome, and be sure to give a thank-you to Stack as well.  He started these, and then made sure they had that extra bit of spit-shine.

Wow, how did I miss this? Awesome.

And thanks for your hard work on the testing and release. I really wish they could have come out sooner, but we put a lot of effort in these. It was such a missed opportunity for Keys players. Good stuff here.

If you guys are wanting to do upgrades for the 21st Century Breakdown album, I have sheet music for the whole album!! I think it's charted for guitar but there's chords with it so it could be beneficial!!
