'Psycho' plays great in RB3, including harmonies, but it doesn't have the vocal_tonic_note set. Pretty sure it should be F Minor (vocal_tonic_note 5, song_tonality 1).

Apologies if this report is in the wrong thread; this song isn't listed on GHtoRB3 or the list above.

Thanks for a great release :)

Thanks for that note.
You will find that most customs do not follow the short-lived RB3 convention of using those markers. My understanding is that most RBN songs also stopped doing that shortly after RB3 came out because it was found to be more work than it was worth.
Is that something you find particularly beneficial? As I said, almost no custom out there uses this with the exception of the GHtoRB3 songs, so it's unusual to see this comment.

As a vocals player, I find it very useful, particularly for new or unfamiliar songs. Otherwise, the guidelines that appear on the background of the vocal highway aren't very useful. I'd like to see them included, especially since all RB3 songs (disc and non-RBN DLC), have them.

Also, on the RBHP project, tone information is standard. I believe the lack of it is considered a bug? In any case, I'd be happy to send a couple updated .dtas with this data added for the recent release, if it would be useful.

It's not considered a bug, it's something that's up to the individual author because, as Nemo pointed out, this isn't even a felony for RBN standards, so it's hardly compulsory for customs. Of course anything that makes the gaming experience better is something we look into, that's why I said that ultimately it's up to the authors if they want to devote more time to the process to include this.

Hey y'all. Hate to bug you on this, but Battle for the Sun and Old Time Rock and Roll both have passwords on the .rar files I can't seem to find anywhere. Fixing this would be helpful. It also may be a good long term fix to set some submission guildlines for the files or file containers. (i.e. no rar files, rar files but only for "packs", rar files no password, or rar files w/a password) Consistency is what makes this project so attractive to a lot of folks like me jumping into customs for the first time.
God, that was violent. I blame... the sea.

GHtoRB3's files used to have a password. We're in the process of migrating them to passwordless files. Use "GHtoRB3" for the time being :-)

The plan is to have everything be .rar'd up, eventually, but without passwords. As mentioned their files used to have a password (I think I added a reply somewhere on the announcement post with the password).

Not necessarily in a rush, but when can we expect to have versions of Plug In Baby and Old Time Rock and Roll with working Pro Guitar? It would just be nice to have a general time rather than checking randomly.

If the process doesn't afford you having any way of knowing, that's fine too.

I'm sorry for the confusion/lack of communication. Those were fixed and I tweeted an update yesterday morning about them.

Dunno if you're already aware of this (I know pksage rocks the thread) but Orange Harrison posted this in the Something Awful Rock Band thread about Old Time Rock 'n Roll

I tried "Old Time Rock n Roll"
Every energy phrase is a unison bonus and they forgot to author energy phrases for Keys. :|
E: Everything else is top notch though, I hope quality control catches more of these minor mistakes before they sneak through though.


No idea if this was fixed in the recent Pro update, so if it was my apologies. And if it's not seen as something worth fixing, I apologize as well. Either way keep up the good work.

Just finished up getting all the songs from the first two releases and creating an account over here too.
Looking forward to tomorrow.

Thanks again for all your hard work!

Well, I think I've lost 10 pounds from the work done on this week's release, so, yeah, I seriously hope people like it... :)

With Help!, the drum track is a tiny bit off.

Just before the chorus, there is a 1/8 (I think) snare part that includes 7 notes and happens twice in the whole song.
The middle tom should also be hit along with the snare (RB, RB, RB, RB, RB, RB, RB, G)

All My Loving I feel is also missing some snare if you'd like me to elaborate.
