hmmm, i haven't noticed it anywhere outside of this game. and it doesn't seem to be confined to any one speaker. seems to come out of both mains and possibly the center. It'll happen at any volume level too.

I'll have to go test elsewhere to see if I can reproduce it.

Well, I was just testing it on "Mother" -- I think it's the first song in the second set. When I play the song in practice mode there's no cracking, but as soon as I take it into a venue I hear static/cracking on some of the notes. It starts pretty early on, so there's no need to play the whole song to hear it. I'm not entirely convinced it's not supposed to be there -- but I guess that'd be a weird thing to intentionally add into the game.

Anybody mind testing this on their end?

for all the guys that actually like the heavy tunes, do you notice a really heavy bass line in "the light that binds"? i never noticed it on the ps2.

optical. I've already tried unplugging the cord and untangling it out a bit so it's not making so many bends, but it didn't seem to help.

Also the cracking/popping goes away if I turn "sound effects" all the way down in options.

"sound effects" include the crowd and the tones when you're off key, maybe some other small things, but are you sure it's not when you miss a note?

I paid attention for the first 2 out of the 20 minutes it lasted and then I came to avs to read new threads. Just set it and go. Or maybe play for a while and when your eyes get buggy put the credits on and take a break before coming back to it.

ok, as far as "sound effects" go, crowd noise is purely rear channel, and in my center channel i get the electric buzz when hitting star notes or activating star power, it has the lightning bolt, and an electric type static resonates for a second or so, that is the ONLY sounds i get out of any speakers from the "sound effects" layer of the track

to test this i put band and guitar on 2-3, and sound effects on 8, and played through a song just listening to the sound effects track.

there is some static, but its purely intentional, and i never really noticed before because i always put my sound effects down to about 5 or so, because when you miss a note it gets annoying after a year or so (been playing since GH1)

can you try this? let me know if that's it, or if there is some random static not associated with star notes or star power? also let me know which song it is.

edit1: i see now you said it was mother, i'll check.


edit2:

damn, 44,401 people are playing now.

That's a 100 note streak. He's talking about a video tribute at the end of the credits.

yea, that dimebag achievement is kinda weak, dimebag deserves better than that, most anyone can get that in their first song or two.

ok, i tested "mother" the same way i tested "salvation", i still only hear what i think are intentional static effects associated with star notes and star power.

Where is that song located. I just started career mode and got as far as Rock n' Roll Hoochie in the 4th or 5th set. I seen Shadows Fall along with Lacuna Coil last night and Brian Fair told the audience that the song is on Guitar hero.

I did career mode on easy. To access the store I need to change to medium right? I like All That Remains, I'm also interested in hearing Laid To Rest by Lamb Of God.

Thanks dude! So I'll earn money on medium and I buy songs. How do you buy songs from XBOX live? I have some points but didn't see any songs listed.

there arent any just yet. but you see the downloads section, i think in a few days we should have some tracks up, hopefully. i personally havent read any official information on it, but i dont think it will take long since one of the biggest advertisements for the game was "downloadable content"

the DLC comes either tomarrow or next week. NO official comment on the price or how it will be offered.
I picked up my copy this morning from EB. I've owned both GH games on PS2. SO I mostly played it for the new tracks overall it's a decent line up.

Dead! By My Chemical Romance- Song turned out to be ok but come on did they really need the full length three finger chords(GBO)?

The Trooper By Iron Maiden- Best of the new tracks It's among Bark of the moon as far as difficulty but I was able to pass this on expert on the first try.

Billion Dollar Babies By Alice Cooper- This is my new rock out song it's just so odd and different from the rest.

Hush By Deep Purple- makes me wish I was playing a DOors track but fun none the less just solid classic 70's rock.

Life Wasted By Pearl Jam- better than the nirvana track on here.

Rock N Roll Hoochie Koo By Rick Derringer- haha gotta love the Southern Hick rock.

Possum Kingdom By The Toadies- Decent track but almost wears out it's welcome.
Salvation By Rancid- fn boring and waste of space on GH2.
The two otehrs were the indie songs and frankly they were crap IMO. Drink up was repetitive and wasn't enjoyable and the other one was boring and easy.

My biggest problem with this game....is that I used to play the drums. And so by my nature I'm all about rhythm....to play lead guitar riffs is just so freakin unnatural to me...
