even guitar hero uses the four note chords (FNC) in one of the aerosmith songs. I used it in a song i made by using your tutorial and the 4 note chord fitted so good into the chorus

Should be used VERY rarerly IMHO. 5NC is a big "No No" though... I think that at least 40% of the players uses keyboards and it's hard to find good keys that you can do all 3NC with.
(This is not GH this is FOF and it's meant to be played with a keyboard so don't even try to argue with it. :p)

- In dB, on that place you want the section to start press "R" then type the following depending on what you want to add there:

Gtr_Solo_1
Chorus_1
Verse_1
Bridge_1
Or you could use something else. I recently discovered that a sections called "Almost like a solo" and "Keyboard solo" count as a solo sections.


Awesome 5000th post.


Any section that has the word "solo" in it, unless it has the words "drum" or "organ" in it, count as a solo.

Though that'll probably change as MFH adds drum solo and bass solo sections for Rock Band 2.

Spoiler:

It's not a real goose, it's only a picture of one.

Solos.


This is a very small detail, but it can be very useful. If you double up the bpm then you will have less hopo then normal. If you cut the bpm in half, then you'll have more hopo. I use this in my fretting when I don't want songs to be too hard or too easy. Like this or this.

Well, if you use more hopo, it'll stay on more. It just changes for less and normal, and even then you can't choose which parts can or cannot have hopos, it's the whole song throughout. And with a song like My Curse by killswitch engage, every note is on a beatline, which would make eightnote hopo not work.

I also found something cool, if you hold down the time signature button, the time signature will start at that point. So if the song starts like 30 seconds in, you won't have to make the time signature like 60. So 30 seconds in, you can make the time signature 4/4 and still have the first note on a major beatline. :thumbup:

Thanks man this inspired me alot and gave few new tricks to use :woot:
I think I'm gonig to stick with songs without changing BPM since that beatsyncing thing is kinda ufo to me :F

Btw I have one problem, when I add the silence in the beginning everything goes fine untill I try my song in FoF. When I open my song in db it has the silence, but when
I try to play it theres no silence and notes comes out 2 sec later than the song begins :S When I open the song as .ogg it seems to start right from 2 sec mark??

I recommend Chart2Mid by Leff. Search for it... it's here in the forum somewhere. Just use the "SEARCH" button. :smile:

Sounds to me like you have a different ogg in the FoF folder than in the dB folder? :confused:

If nothing else works, you could add line "delay = -2000" to song.ini.

So you have to 2 second silence in dB? Open the OGG you have with audacity, see if the silence is still there? If it is, it must be ingame also?! But if nothing helps, then do what Kotti said.
