Added 6/25/2009 - These are seriously the dullest necks of any of the GH games. There are only 8 new necks in this one since most of the 45+ necks in the game are from the previous games.

I found these while ripping the artwork from GH3 PS2...
This must be the beta version of GH3. If anyone has this, I would love to add that neck to this collection!!!

The 1st one is a custom neck.

But the second one is actually the neck that is used for slash in GH3.

This one I believe IS actually on the GH3 disc, but I don't think it is used. You would be surprised what Activision leaves on these discs that is hidden.

Something else I am needing to know is if the necks from these games have been altered in any way? The reason I ask, when I ripped the graphics from GHWT PS2, the highways (necks) art actually 256px X 256px. I've trying to find out if the necks that have previously been released have been stretched and or enlarged for some reason. The highways I ripped work great in FoFiX as they are from the game. I know that some people have taken it upon themselves to stretch them out to fit the current neck selection template. I would personally use unaltered necks myself.

Also does anyone know if the RB/RB2 necks that are out were actually ripped from the game or replicated?

sweet. another cool project
i always thought those unofficial necks in the fofix themes were horrible
..could never use the 'random' option - chances were you'd get a ugly one
good stuff Mr.

The reason I have some concern if this one is reason is because the wood grain pattern underneath the graphics, is from the grey neck above and is the exact same pattern as all the other necks from GH1. Not that the graphics couldn't have been added to that and then lowered on transparency.

Semitransparent black. Like the "default" neck in FoFiX.
That's what it kinda looks like from videos I've seen, but I wouldn't know.

Hey Faust, i just looked at ALL the graphics you sent me from the PS2 version. The necks are definitely shrunken, then stretched in game in height. 256x256 for those, but the other console's FULL detail quality are at 512x1024 (PS3,X360,PC). In one word to describe the PS2 quality of graphics, SAD!!!! It's such a shame they drastically reduced the graphics for the PS2 version. And in general, i would say the hardware is not PS3, BUT in fairness is easily (a bunch of games i played in the days.) capable of doing SO much better then that. I almost thought i was looking at stuff ripped from PS1 honestly.
Kind of like how they screwed us PC users with jack sh*t for support and ANY DLC whatsoever. But anyway, this gives us a good baseline til we rip the PS3 or X360.

by the way, I'm pretty sure that this neck is originally from GH3, as opposed to GH:A (although it probably appears in GH:A as well)
Image
I remember it because I would always play as Metalhead, and this was his neck.
Probably not majorly important, but I thought I'd mention it anyway for the sake of accuracy.

TXF made it, I'm fairly sure of that.

The overdrive Guitar, bass, Drums and the bassgroove necks I made it, I try to do a replica :tongue:
I don't have console :sad:, and I really take it from screenshots of RB and RB 2 :smile: and Photoshop :thumbup:

Thx Mr. Faust for this OFFICIAL Necks :2thumbsup:
