Welcome!

This is the official Rock Band 2 Theme 1.4 for Frets on Fire MFH Mod v3.011 thread.

Download Link:
Image Full Release (WinRAR archive) - updated Oct. 8, 2008 (RapidShare host; 134 MB)
Mirror Link:
Image Full Release (WinRAR archive) - updated Oct. 8, 2008 (MegaUpload host; 134 MB)
Both compatible with Linux / Mac OS

User provided mirrors:
Rock Band 2 Theme 1.4 Light Version and separate main menu music and stages (WinRAR archive; MediaFire) - provided by death_au

Feel free to make mirror links to other sites.

Changes 1.3 - 1.4:
** Completely new Neck Selection Screen (by Ds~ - with permission)
** Fixed newer background stages (by Super_Crazy_Dude) - now the game won't freeze with black screen or load really long
** Darker partial grey stars with glow v.3 (by .liquid. - with permission)
** Changed versiontag.png and optionsbg.png to display actual MFH Mod and RB2 Theme versions

How to install:
1. Download the theme *.rar file using one of the links above.
2. UnRAR it's contents to your Frets on Fire MFH-Alarian Mod v2.995 (you can find the download link for it in my signature) folder - {disk}:/{game folder}/data/themes.
For example, C:/Program Files/Frets on Fire/data/themes/ or D:/Games/FoF/data/themes/.
3. If you did everything right, you'll get a "Rock Band 2" folder in themes folder.
4. Launch the game.
5. Go to Options/Settings.
6. Go to Theme settings.
7. Change "Theme" to "Rock Band 2" and scroll down till you find "Apply New Settings" line and hit it.
8. That's about it.

* New bassgroove multiplier (by kristijan_mkd & Dilussional)
* New Smaller Instrument Icon (by Dilussional)

Features:

Is that seriously the main menu o_O

woooow that's awesome o_O
I can't really say much, the mod is awesome, I only think that minor details on gameplay, such as the rock meter and the notes will be improved with some time, but wow o_O

I guess people on forums won't ask where the mods I use come from as often as random guys do :D

This looks great, I'll download it now, and run it wine, so I can get the actual files out. :)

That's only if you are playing a Rock Band song.

Don't worry, I caught myself asking that to... myself... in my head one day, and then I realised I was playing a Guitar Hero 3 song. :p

Dan1lo, Figure was working on RB2 score multiplier graphics.
And I will start working on RB2 rock meter soon.
These are the only two features missing yet.

And thanks to everyone for the kind words.

I'm hoping to use it myself with decrypted RB2 song rips and career files (when they come out after the game release).

evil-doer, you should ask cama about it or use the same method as in ripping the songs from RB1.
I totally envy you. :p
