Got a .dta file that refuses to go over 1279, out of 2678 converted files in my songs to merge folder. It was just creating backups of songs (using same settings each time when converting in batches of 100 which - sucks BTW you would think just letting it run overnight would be fine, but when did that lost out on like 500 songs, but gained 3000 in duplicates). Screw that! As it is wayyy over the 2952 limit, and to remove each duplicate would take forever, dying at my desk is not the way I want to go.  

 

Attempted fix: Trying a blank .dta file in merged, with no songs, and all the songs in songs to merge = repeatedly gives me a "no songs found in songs to merge directory" when I am staring at the 2678. 

 

What. the. flim flam duckeroo

 

before I sacrifice a small child in some BS voodoo justin roland meta plot point (Rick and Morty joke), What do I do?

 

Tried various combinations of breaking up the files into songs to merge, and merged and even throwing in a few cons with merge checkbox, as a kinda jumpstart? no dice. Is there a limit on songs to merge? Is there some cache thing going on here, were it just craps out, how do you add lots of files then, if adding small batches makes duplicates. I was getting tons of duplicates when doing it in batches, so that's why I held off on the merging till the end cause that was a problem with the program. This is literally a catch-22...great book. But, not something I want in life I already had enough experience with the military thank you.  

 

Why can't you just drag, and drop files to the .dta. Seriously. Also, edit dta entries and pack contents has never, ever un-greyed out. I would love to hear if anyone has any suggestions cause this is bonkers.

PS3 dtas, probably the biggest downfall of playing customs on a PS3.  

 

It's the best supported console both hardware and software wise.  As long as you have the right adapters, you can play any controller, PS3, 360, or Wii, on PS3.  All games support custom content pretty easily, and if you want, you can play customs online!  But then the dta is a thing and yeah I hate it too lol.  I don't understand why it's different, but it is, and you sadly just have to deal with it and try to find the root problem, which is not always easy.

glad someone (southern drawl) 'finds, my trials and tribulations' humorous. have spent all day dealing with 1 song that was crashing the entire 2777 library. fuck you bill withers - use me!!! Seriously, the dta. editor is crap. Have never gotten it to offer the option of deleting entry AND file. I'm seriously thinking of only doing PS3 customs as a passive aggressive protest when I get my stuff together for that.

 

However, right now I have a bottle of aquifit to kill because it is gross, and I will never believe any millennial booze blogger ever again, bad buy.  Should have learned my lesson with Bijuu (that stuff tastes like eating old man ass that you find in the pacific north woods that has been there since the 70's), I'll drink pretty much anything. But that stuff never again. Ethel was even fine back in the Lab days.

Please keep posting stuff. Keep in mind, I can't help you what-so-ever, and this frustration is the single biggest reason I switched from my PS3 where all my songs exist to a 360 just for customs, but this read was hysterical. I feel like you really should learn to chart as there would be some WHOPPER posts by you at that point that would surely make me cry in hysteria. =-)

 

I do hope it works out for you. I've actually never had any sort of luck with the dta editor either.
