Yesterday I made my first chart and after testing it multiple times I felt it was finished. I went to add it to the customs database and was confused when I saw the CON file Magma generator thing. I know that all the files I download from here come as those but I always have to convert then with Phase Shift anyway.

 

So I'm guessing that the post was deleted because I didn't upload the CON file. I was wondering how to do this. I have C3CONTools on my PC and I will show the files I have for the song. I also still have the Moonscraper chart file. If I need any other tools I would be happy to get them!

 

TL;DR How to make a CON file for the database with the files and tools I have

The point is that you're authoring for Phase Shift, not for Rock Band 3. The database currently is focused on Rock Band 3, so you need to author for that platform. Phase Shift can be added as a format but a Rock Band 3 file is compulsory. Check out how to author for Rock Band 3 to fix the issue. ;)

Thanks for the reply!

 

Okay so I found a post (made by you :P) http://customscreato...tomation-tools/

A guide on "How to Convert Songs to Rock Band 3 Customs" http://customscreato...-band-3-custom/

 

Is there a link to the Rock Band Previewer plugin for REAPER? I can't seem to find it :(

Yes, my tutorial was made for FoF songs but it's basically the same for PS. :)
