Hello! I'm new to this forum and to the whole custom song gig in general and I'm already having trouble.
I downloaded this custom from the database: http://customscreato...f-heaven-r16272 , and also downloaded C3 CON Tools 4.00 to convert it to PS3. Here's where the problems start.
I tried to follow the guide in this forum to install the customs but the first thing I noticed is that I needed to install an HFW and HEN. Me, having a CFWd PS3, ignored those steps and went directly to the "convert to PS3" step.
First problem: The step description is that there is already a guide on how to convert from xbox360 to PS3... Uh... Ok. Went to that guide and the first thing that the guide says is that it's outdated and redirects to the guide i was already following. Double uh... Ok, I'll try to follow the outdated guide anyway.
Second problem: This guide requires having a free pack installed or installing a .rap that is included on the tools folder. Checked the tools folder, the .rap is nowhere to be found on the /bin folder. Then, I realised that the updated guide said the .rap is no longer necessary. Ok, I'll open the C3 CON Tools and use it directly, it can't be that difficult. Press PS3 Converter. A prompt appears telling me that i need to input an author ID and a song ID... Uh... I didn't have an account here yet so I'll just press Yes on the default number. "That Author ID is not correct." Welp, time to close the tools and make an account. Huh, now it wants the song ID, so I won't touch the default as the prompt said. I guess I won't have any problem with the author ID since I don't intend to upload the conversion to the database.
Third problem: Ok, now I just have to drag the con here, put decryption type 3 as the other tutorial said and check it's in NTSC mode, ok, done. Press start and there it is, in all songs is a folder with another folder and the songs.dta, nice, time to put it in the PS3. I go to the PS3, make the two nested folders, check that they're named correctly, boot Rock Band 3 and... the song is nowhere to be seen.
Fourth problem: Ok, back to the drawing board... Oh hey, the outdated guide says I need to merge the songs before installing, maybe that was the problem! Put the folder on songs to be merged and... why is merge songs greyed out? Huh, maybe I need to check the merge songs box that the guide said... except there is none. The only box similar is the one that says "Merge new songs with existing ones" and it's also greyed out... I'm out of options, time to post on the forum!
And here I am. Sorry if I overdetailed the process but it seemed like the best way to see if I failed in any step that may have looked inocuous at first glance.
Thank you all in advance and sorry if it's an obvious problem.
