Apologies if this info is all out there, I haven't done too much looking into the various differences between how this all works on different systems. I have a PS3, so I followed those instructions and it all works fine, so if none is this is doable, I'd still be over the moon with everything anyway, I'm just curious. I suppose I could just also go and try these things, but I figured I'd ask before messing anything up.
While flipping through some video about various facets of the C3ConTools, it was mentioned about xbox being able to just make your own packs and everything, and I think he said something about fewer (though bigger) packs would load faster than vice versa. That got me thinking about the folder architecture of my library: between all the legit DLC's I have installed, I have nearly 500 folders that it scans through during it's initial load. It's only a couple of minutes, but still, got me thinking. Here's what I'm wondering:
On PS3 (due to whatever foibles of the system), does everything all have to go into that one specific "free pack"/"HMX0756" folder? I understand there's a limit to the number of songs that a single dta file can handle, on PS3, does that effectively make that one file's limit into the whole system's limit, because you can only insert via that one directory?
What about official DLC folders? Can I delete single songs from official DLC packs, if I modify the songs.dta accordingly?
Can I similarly merge songs from official DLC "packs" (singles, in actuality), if I again just make sure to properly merge their songs.dta files? (With, in this case, I'm thinking that "PS3DTAMerger.bat" that I got from the BeatlesRB DLC instructions on discord)
Anyway, this whole shit is amazing. You guys are all mind-blowing. I sorta fell out of guitar hero and rock band shortly after RB1 was released, so to return to it now and find that some major dream-come-true stuff has been taking place for the past decade here, is pretty fantastic. I'm consistently floored by both the quality and sheer quantity of work that so many of you put out. Thanks a lot!
