..::--~~**||/// HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN CAREER! \\\||**~~--::..

Postby Razlo7 » Fri Nov 21, 2008 2:48 am

I've made a few careers in the past (PH3, GH:A) and just saw someone wondering about this, so here I have a typed up tutorial on how to build your very own career pack! (And i really don't want to have to type it up again!)

NOTE::: This is the most reliable way to make a career (always works if you follow the directions right. If you don't feel like doing it 100% manually, there are templates, auto-career makers and such available for download in the FOFix thread. I may post links to them here later.


PLEASE STICKY SO IT ISN'T BURIED!!! THIS WILL KEEP AWAY N00BY QUESTIONS!




HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN CAREER!
By::: Razlo7


Simply follow these steps in order:::

1. Add "unlock_id = " to each of the song.ini's in the career pack that you want to make.

2. After "unlock_id = ", put an id for the song (Example::: "unlock_id = gh3_1" that would be the id for the songs of gh3's first tier)

3. For the encore song of that tier you would put the id of the tier (gh3_1) then add "enc" to the end (Example::: "unlock_id = gh3_1enc")


NOW THE MOST IMPORTANT PART!!!


4. To make the encore unlockable, you have to put "unlock_require = " into the song.ini as well (NOTE::: if the song doesn't need to be unlocked, then leave that out!) So to make that encore unlockable, you would put the id of the song that needs to be completed to unlock it. The "unlock_require" for the gh3 1st tier encore would be "unlock_require = gh3_1"

5. For each tier, you must change the number in the "unlock_id" after the underscore (_) to the number that the tier will be. (Example::: 2nd tier: "unlock_id = gh3_2", 3rd tier: "unlock_id = gh3_3", etc.)


After you've made the "unlock_id"'s and "unlock_require"'s for all of the songs you want in the career pack, you need to make a "titles.ini"


6. BEFORE MAKING A TITLES.INI, make a folder named for the career pack, and put all the songs for the career pack into that folder. (leave the songs in thier own folders)

7. Now you can make a titles.ini in the folder named for the career pack.


HERE'S HOW TO SETUP YOUR "titles.ini"


8. In the titles.ini you've created, copy and paste this:::

Code: Select all

[titles]

[tier1]

[tier2]

[tier3]

[tier4]

Add as many more tiers as you need, just make sure to leave a blank line between each one, and ALWAYS MAKE SURE TO LEAVE A WHOLE BLANK LINE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TITLES.INI!

9. Under "[titles]" at the top of the titles.ini, put "sections = " after the equals, put the tier1 tier2 tier3 tier4, etc. and leave a space between each one. You only need to add as many tiers as you are going to have in the career pack.
It should look something like this:::

Code: Select all

[titles]
sections = tier1 tier2 tier3 tier4 tier5 tier6 bonus


10. Now you need to name the tiers of your career pack. Under the tier number ([tier1], [tier2], etc.) put "name = " and add ANYTHING after that. That will become the name of that tier.

11. On the line under "name = ", put "unlock_id = " and put the id that you used for the songs of that tier (Example for tier2, the unlock id would be "unlock_id = gh3_2", just like the id of the song.ini's for tier2 songs.)


Finally, you should have your titles.ini looking something like this::: (when done, also yours will have the id's of whatever your career is.)

Code: Select all

[titles]
sections = tier1 tier2 tier3 tier4 tier5 tier6 bonus

[tier1]
name = 1. Getting The Band Together (Nipmuc High School)
unlock_id = gha_1

[tier2]
name = 2. First Taste Of Success (Max's Kansas City)
unlock_id = gha_2

[tier3]
name = 3. The Triumphant Return (The Orpheum)
unlock_id = gha_3

[tier4]
name = 4. International Superstars (Moscow)
unlock_id = gha_4

[tier5]
name = 5. The Great American Band (Half-Time Show)
unlock_id = gha_5

[tier6]
name = 6. Rock N' Roll Legends (Rock & Roll Hall of Fame)
unlock_id = gha_6

[bonus]
name = Bonus (The Vault)
unlock_id = gha_7


NOTE::: If you are going to have more than 10 tiers, you MUST put a zero in front of single digits for the IDs!! (Thanks to ADH for the reminder) And you can only have ONE unlock_id under each of the tiers in the titles.ini!

ALSO, you can make part of the songs in the tier unlocked, then another part, THEN the encore by adding changing those parts into "unlock_id = gh3_1a" or whatever would correspond to your career. BUT, you will also have to change the "unlock_require = " to the part that needs to be completed.


GOOD LUCK!!! AND HAPPY CAREER MAKING!!! (Tell me if I left something out, or if it isn't working.)

you might want to say that if you plan on having more than 9 tiers you need a 0 in front of the single digit numbers.

but other than that great tutorial.

Yea a lot of people seem to be wanting to make thier own careers, but have no idea how to do it, and there's no tutorials (at least that I could find) So this should help alot!

Cool! :biggrin: I'm honored this is being used by so many people!

Do you happen to know if it's possible to organize songs inside the "tier"? I'm on a weird moniter and reading is a bit hard with it so I only read the first post..

Easy peasy. To order songs within a tier, use a decimal in the unlock_id. So for example, the first song in the 2nd tier for Guitar Hero III (gh3_2) would be unlock_id=gh3_2.1 . The 2nd would be gh3_2.2, and so on.

Razlo, you may want to add this detail to your first post.

I do my career packs a little bit different. I like to keep my songs in the same order as they are in the real games. So I use a point system with my unlockid...

GH3 examples...
[song]
artist = POISON
year = 1986
name = Talk Dirty to Me
unlock_id = gh3_1.2

[song]
name = Hit Me with Your Best Shot
artist = PAT BENATAR
year = 1980
unlock_id = gh3_1.3

[song]
artist = SOCIAL DISTORTION
year = 1990
name = Story of My Life
unlock_id = gh3_1.4

[song]
year = 1975
name = Rock and Roll All Nite
artist = KISS
unlock_id = gh3_1enc
unlock_require = gh3_1.4
unlock_text = Finish All Songs in This Tier To Unlock The Encore


With GHWT I went a set further
unlockid is broken down like this game_group#venue#song#

GHWT Examples...
[song]
artist = Bon Jovi
name = Livin' On A Prayer
year = 1986
unlock_id = ghwt_g1v1s1

[song]
artist = Nirvana
name = About A Girl (Unplugged)
year = 1994
unlock_id = ghwt_g1v1s2
unlock_text = Finish to play the encore song

[song]
artist = Jane's Addiction
name = Mountain Song (ENCORE)
year = 1988
unlock_id = ghwt_g1v1s3
unlock_require = ghwt_g1v1s2
unlock_text = Finish to advance to Sweden.

[song]
artist = 311
name = Beautiful Disaster
year = 1997
unlock_id = ghwt_g1v2s1
unlock_require = ghwt_g1v1s3
unlock_text = Welcome to Sweden.

Razlo, you may want to add this detail to your first post.

Okay but can you add this line alone "unlock_id = gh3_2", in the titles.ini or do you have to add:
unlock_id = gh3_2.1
unlock_id = gh3_2.2
unlock_id = gh3_2.3
unlock_id = gh3_2.4?

---- EDIT ----
Edit:
I thought that this was removed in fofix a long time ago. I allready know that this worked quite a few months ago as I organized a album that I was trying (still am but not as frequently) to make like this.

Second edit:
I just tried doing this too one artist in my collection with albums as tiers but for some reason all songs end up on the previus album/tier, although sorting with the point system works like a charm. :) (unlock_id = #two digit number of album#_firnedlyalbumname_#twodigit track number#)

Thanks.

Oh yeah forgot to mention that the first tier is empty. I'll see what happens if I add a song there.

Third edit:
Okay I have no idea what's wrong.
Inside the spolier is my full titles.ini, lines in bold represent songs present, underline means that I have tried without that line. Oh and I've triple checked the songs present for any typos on the unlock_id line...

For every "tier" you can only have one unlock_id. For example, here is my titles.ini.

Spoiler:[titles]
sections = title1 titleTwo title3 title4 title5 dlc


[title1]
name = 1. Performing Locally
unlock_id = bh_1


[titleTwo]
name = 2. Opening Act
unlock_id = bh_2


[title3]
name = Break-Up
unlock_id = bh_3


[title4]
name = 4. Reunion
unlock_id = bh_4


[title5]
name = 5. Battle Against Jurgen
unlock_id = bh_4fe

[title1]
name = Downloadable Content
unlock_id = bh_dlc



If MFH has implanted a new feature offering more tiers into different unlock_id's. I don't know about it.

As of now, you can only add one unlock_id (for all the songs in that tier) to one tier.
