Also Chic - Good Times I believe is a broken custom for PS3, although I think I fixed it with a rerender.  This was a year ago, so I might just be making stuff up.  Definitely one to check though

Good Times works perfectly

These songs go in to the loop after the final note is played (allows pausing the game and exiting to song library):
Dire Straits - Money for Nothing
Turtles - Happy Together
 
Same issue encountered with these:
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Commotion
Linkin Park - The Messenger
Trapt - Headstrong


I am not sure but I think the loop ending is a separate issue, I think it also happens with single track customs.

 

Perhaps we should start another thread to list customs which have the "loop ending" problem  :D

Just found out that Duffy - Warwick Avenue freezes mid-game.

Yeah Good Times works perfectly because I recompiled it with a single track drum stem.  This custom was the first time where this issue came up though, so that's why I remember it.

 

I am actually fixing that custom up once again so wew lad.

Saw the reply about this one not working after converting to PS3. Didn't test it myself though. Guess it should be added to the list.

 

BTW anyone working on fixing the songs from the list or I'm asking for too much? :)

I've updated the list. I also mark songs as "CONFIRMED" when we get enough people to say they don't work for them, to make sure it's not accidental mistakes.

 

At least @MrPrezident promised to look into fixing Thin Lizzy's "Jailbreak", and @MFX mentioned Gotye's "Somebody that I used to know" is already under work.

 

By the way, have you tried to see if the C3 CON Tools option for fixing the loop ending solved the problem with Dire Straits' "Money for Nothing" and The Turtles' "Happy Together"? If they only loop but don't freeze, I think we should remove them from this list, as the root cause is different.

I tried playing with loop fixes, but it never did anything for me. Maybe i did something wrong since i believe this issue wasn't addressed in-depth. Maybe same list should be compiled for loop-affected customs in case there's some kind of 'essential' solution/fix for this. I can help with testing some of them.

Just yesterday I encountered the first custom with the loop ending problem (Tears for Fears - Sowing the Seeds of Love). This song has enough seconds of padding at the end so that you can actually play all the notes, but then it would hang and not end properly: you have to drop out to go back to the songs list, and this means that your scores won't be saved.

So I went back to C3 CON Tools and re-converted the song, this time activating the "fix loop ending" checkbox. After that, the song works perfectly (at least when playing vocal or keys, haven't tried the others yet).

But I guess the trick doesn't work with all songs? At least this song didn't have the drums multitrack, but I doubt that these 2 problems affect each other.

By the way I have noticed that C3 CON Tools have a similar-sounding option in the menu, which seems to want to fix a single mogg directly. I presume it runs the same code anyway but I am not sure.

95% of the customs i play are multitrack, so they might have different problems with loops and stuff. Maybe each one is one is an independent case. Maybe also should try converting them one-by-one. For now i just removed them from my library.
