So, i was making a drum chart for a song on RB3, and I was finished with making it via Moonscraper. So I export the chart as a midi, run it through Onyx to turn it into an rb3con, & pop it into my usb drive. But when i put it in my Xbox 360, turn on the game, and scroll down to the song, it tells me that there's no drum part for the song. WTF?!

BornGamerRob, What I'm modifying is not Official DLC. It's my own Modification of MasonSparkles Africa chart, which was originally made for Clone Hero.

This song/chart is not made by Harmonix, hence it is not Official DLC.

No one can help with this issue because the song in question is official Rock Band DLC. It doesn't matter where the files came from. You can't discuss it here because of the rules.

You can't share official content, either in its official form or your own version, but in this case he is not sharing it, he's asking questions about his own copy. In the future, simply be smarter and not mention the nature of the song if it's not needed for the issue you need to fix anyway

Oh. Didn't realize you could share links to other games even though it's an official Rock Band DLC song. I guess as long as it's not Rock Band 3 is what I'm assuming? The line is hard to find around here sometimes, but good to know for future reference and link posting.

So you're suggesting I edit my original post to not mention the song?

Yes. That's what my original post was suggesting as well.

Did you make a previous version of this chart, and are now updating it with drums? If so, you'll need to change both the internal song name and the song ID. RB3 stores the metadata for its songs in the cache, and it checks for new internal song names and song IDs when scanning for songs. If you don't change these values, the game will think that the metadata hasn't actually changed.

No, I'm modifying a chart that someone else made, it originally only had guitar, so I added drums.

Also, how would I change the internal song name & ID? What program would I use?

C3 CON Tools. Learn all about it in this thread:

Even a snazzy video you can watch to learn all the capabilities of a very robust tool.

I apologize, for some reasons I didn't see there was a link posted, my bad, I only read the first post probably. Yes, please do not post links to alternate versions of officially available songs

BornGamerRob, the video in the thread is outdated, and i don't see any tabs in C3 Con Tools that say anything about the internal name or song ID.

Then you missed the "outdated" part that talks about it being called a DTA Editor (about 17:00 minutes in since you don't want to watch it). What you're asking to do takes knowledge. You're gonna have to dig in to these tools if you want to use them and learn how to do conversions, or work with the tools here that have lots of forum threads that help. There's lots of ways to accomplish what you're asking for with the C3 CON tools, you're just going to have to take a little time learning about them.

Ok then, I could try using the DTA editor a 2nd time. Hopefully it actually works.

Ok, so I'm now in the DTA editor and I have opened the con file. What do I need to edit in order to get the game to recognize that the song has drums?
