Do you have to reset the cache if you are adding a song to an already processed pak?


Or can you  just add said song and recompile the bin files? :confused:

I believe so. As far as I know/recall, the 'name' in the songs.dta is what matters. So long as that 'name', like...
      "Twist And Shout"
...for example, was in the BIN when it was generated and added to the library during a cache refresh, the Rock Band library will find it. Even if you have it pointing to a song that actually replaced Twist and Shout but uses the name as a reference.

Another question, what would make the game freeze at the song screen.

After you start the game, and hit play song the game freezes.

It worked up until the last pack I loaded, the bin files are not too big (349k & 14.9mb), the generation is correct...what gives



I figured it out, didn't fix it just figured out what was making it freeze.


The latest song I downloaded : America by Simon & Garfunkel.  That's what was making my wii freeze and buzz.


Not sure why.

Hello Everybody,

i have a question. Does somebody have a sZHP Packer? The links are all down.
sZFP and sZGP works fine. But i tried to make a new packer sZHP from the sZGP file just renaming the wad file to sZHP.
I can generate BIN-Files. But the generatet BIN Files dissapear after starting the game. The songs are not available in the game.

Maybe anybody have some advice or the right sZHP DLC Packer File?

Thank you & Best regards

I need your help to make the app files work. I already tried in sZFE and sZGE but is not working... In the game shows that red bar loading, but in the library don't appear. In the NAND folder i have putted these files in title/1005/735a4645/content
There is two files, one is the 00000026.APP and other is tmd.
What should i do?

We are on Nova Era

I have a question about the cache.

I am planning on using sZHE for kid-friendly songs and sZGE for non-kid songs. 

Ideally, I want to be able to play the game with friends using both generations, and then also play with my kids using only sZHE so they don't see all the inappropriate songs. 


If I put both generations on one SD, and only the kids one on another SD, could I generate a cache for Adult, and then rename that to "aMSTORE.vff" and then regenerate the cache with the other SD card and copy it to a file named "bMSTORE.vff"?

then I could use wiixplorer to rename whichever tracklist I wanted as "MSTORE.vff" before playing.
