I did something similar, except that I didn't see a reason to use a different profile than my normal online one. I copied my save file and song cache to one stick, and have another save file, song cache, TU4 and the customs on the other stick (and some hardware settings file the Score Hero instructions told me to copy). I put the first stick in when I want to play the game without customs and start the GoD version, which has TU5 built in. When I want to play with customs I put the 2nd stick in and start the game from disc. When I start the disc it wants to install the update and I decline, at which point it logs me out of Live and continues otherwise normally.

I suppose using separate profiles there would be less danger of accidentally deleting a save file if the wrong stick was installed.

BTW, people who want to try this should use the bulkiest flash drives possible. The 360's front USB connections are recessed, making the smaller drives more difficult to plug in. I have a tiny 16 GB drive (like this) that I couldn't find and I'm glad. I bought one of these and its probably the shortest stick I'd want to deal with; the rear end of it only barely sticks out. (It doesn't need anything like 16 GB for a couple of save files, but I used the Xbox customize option to minimize the storage reserved for Xbox use so that I can use the rest for other things if I want).

I'm having a lot of fun with these customs--thanks for mentioning it, Christopher_H! 120 new songs really breathes new life into the game for me. 14 of them even have built-in pro g/b charts; I may have to dust off my Squier .

I should spend some time combing through that list and listen to some of the songs that I'm not familiar with on Google Music.

I forgot the things that TU5 fixed; I just ran into the "pushing a crate into a truck" freeze this afternoon . Also the increase in highway opacity was a wonderful innovation.

Turned out that keys-on-guitar unlock required 5S'ing a certain number of RB3 basic guitar charts . The "Guitar Immortal" goal was supposed to require 50 5S'd songs (medium difficulty at a minimum) but it let me have it at 43; whatever.

I'd completely forgotten the goals system.

I must be missing something, or my Party Buffalo isn't working properly. It runs just fine, opens the XBox USB stick, but I can't figure out a way to transfer files to it from my pc. Drag n drop isn't allowed, and PB doesn't seem to show any 'normal' files on the USB drive.

You should have first prepared things by copying your RB save file, song cache and hardware settings (something like that) file onto two separate flash drives using the Xbox settings->system->storage dialogs; if you normally play the game from disc (not the GoD digital download), copy "Rock Band 3 Title Update #5 " onto the flash drive that you won't be using for the customs. Delete those files from the HDD (if "Rock Band 3 Title Update #5 " is there, make sure to delete it from the HDD, whether you copied it onto a flash drive or not). In Party Buffalo, after opening the device that you're going to use for the customs, you'll see two directories, being "Data" and "Cache". Open "Data" and then open every folder at the top until you get to an RB save file folder and can see the save file, song cache, etc that you copied onto the drive on the Xbox. Then mouse over that list of files and right-click, choosing "inject new file". That will bring up a dialog to select a file; browse to the directory where you have the downloaded customs, select all of them and click OPEN; that will copy them onto the drive one by one. Also copy the Title Update 4 file into that directory on the flash drive using the same method.

Plug the flash drive with the customs into your Xbox (with the other one not plugged in) and start the game from the disc. It will log you out of XBL and ask you to update; hit CANCEL. (This will happen every time). At some point it will tell you that the save file is incompatible with that version; let it replace it. You may also be asked to recalibrate; if you don't the audio and video lag settings will be zero and you probably won't be able to play properly.

At that point you should be golden. Enjoy the customs. Since you're not online, you won't be able to compare your scores to your friends or even see your top numeric scores for any song (it knows them, but it can't show you without displaying the leaderboard for the song which it can't do offline).

As I posted above you'll have to play some RB3 on-disc songs before you'll be able to play basic keys on a 5-button guitar, if you're interested in doing that. I've downloaded 182 of the customs and worked my way through the guitar and bass charts and am now working through the keys charts of the 125 of them which have keys.

To play online, remove the flash drive with the customs on it, plug the other one in and start the game from either disc or the download version, if you have that.

(You can see another version of these steps in a scorehero.com forums post, here).

New DLC? Is this bizarro world? Hopefully more will trickle out.

ROCK BAND™ MUSIC STORE SPRINGS TO LIFE WITH NEW MUSIC FROM ARCTIC MONKEYS, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, AND FOO FIGHTERS!

Cambridge, Mass. – January 12th, 2015 – Harmonix today announced that new tracks from Arctic Monkeys, Avenged Sevenfold, and Foo Fighters are headed to the Rock Band™ Music Store of downloadable content for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

Rock Band provides the deepest and best selection of artists, songs and albums through the Rock Band music platform, which features more than 1,400 artists and more than 3,500* tracks via disc and download purchase (complete list of tracks at www.rockband.com/songs). Rock Band’s gigantic music library dwarfs that of any other rhythm video game on the market. More than 100 million songs have been sold through the Rock Band Music Store since its launch on Nov. 20, 2007.

Tracks downloaded from the Rock Band Music Store are compatible with the award-winning full-band Rock Band 3 experience, as well as the controller-based rhythm-action title, Rock Band Blitz, available now on PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE® Arcade!

Rock Band DLC Additions for Xbox 360 and PlayStation®3 system

On Tuesday, January 13th, new music from Arctic Monkeys, Avenged Sevenfold, and Foo Fighters will hit the Rock Band Music Store!

“R U Mine?” marks the first appearance of the Grammy Award winning Arctic Monkeys on the Rock Band platform. From 2013’s critically acclaimed album AM, “R U Mine?” – with its driving riffs, syncopated rock beats, and memorable hook – is perfect for Artic Monkeys’ Rock Band debut.

One of the most fan requested artists, Avenged Sevenfold, makes their return to Rock Band with “Shepherd Of Fire.” The track comes from the band’s sixth studio record, 2013’s Billboard chart-topping Hail to the King.

Foo Fighters’ “Something From Nothing” from the band’s latest, 2014’s Sonic Highways, will also be available for download. Heard in the opening sequence of the hit HBO music documentary series Sonic Highways, directed by Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl, “Something From Nothing” topped the charts when it was released last October.


Available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation®3 system (January 13th, 2015):

• Arctic Monkeys – “R U Mine?”
• Avenged Sevenfold – “Shepherd Of Fire”
• Foo Fighters – “Something From Nothing”

Price:
$1.99 USD, £.99 UK, €1.49 EU per song

(These tracks will be available in Europe on PlayStation®3 system January 21st)

** Dates for Rock Band game tracks are tentative and subject to change. **

They occasionally make comments on twitter that seem to hint that there's something going on, but never anything specific. Haven't seen a "never"-type comment either. The release of new DLC, to me, makes it more likely that we'll see a current-gen RB eventually... hopefully!

The main problem is preserving folk's investment in equipment. Rocksmith has shown that its possible to make licensing arrangements to move DLC across generations; of course they were dealing with a minor fraction of the RB song library.

Getting a few songs is interesting. They can't expect to make much money from them at this point.

It's amazing how fubar'd xbox live is for these new DLC tracks. First only the Foo Fighters song was available, then for a brief window last night all three couild be purchased, and now the whole back catalog for Rock Band in down. It seems like a 100% Microsoft problem, too. I thought they liked making money.

It's fun watching people melt-down about it on the official forums. You'd think no one had gone 21 months without new DLC or something. I can't play until tomorrow anyway, so I can laugh until then. But if they don't get it resolved today I might have to join in on the flaming! lolz

Yeah--it's strange. I got the Foo Fighters song when it first came up (not destined to be one of my favorites, I think) then tried to get "R U Mine?" on Xbox.com yesterday and it was screwed up. Just tried it and you can't get it from the in-game music store either (it's still citing prices in points ).

Filled it out immediately when I viewed the email message. For some reason you reminded me about not being able to get all of the songs from XBL, so I just went in and was able to purchase "R U Mine?", though I tried to get it for days. I assume that the A7F song (that I'm not at all interested in) is available to buy now as well. The problem appears to be fixed though I don't know exactly when.

Polygon has a pretty detailed article up too:

http://www.polygon.com/features/2015...x-ps4-xbox-one

Apparently it'll be easier to use old peripherals on the PS3/PS4, but they're at least trying to have a conversation with Microsoft about it for the Xbox one. I don't see how they'll be able to manage it, unless Microsoft lets Harmonix/Mad Catz make and use a dongle akin to the one for the 360 controller on PC.

Very excited for this. Sounds like its going to be another great game. My DLC is the most important thing, so that's great. I don't mind getting new guitar, but I'm not playing plastic drums, so I hope my ion drums can work somehow since they are a USB connection.

Very good news.

Wife and I were just talking the other day how much we miss our weekly Rockband sessions with friends.

We kinda got burnt out with RB3 ...I made the mistake of trying the whole pro-mode stuff and got discouraged when I realized I just did not have any musical skillz whatsoever. I tried rocksmith and again did not do very well.

It will be cool to just go back to having fun.

Will probably be the first game this gen that makes me glad I stuck with Microsoft lol.

Now it does say support for legacy DLC...

I wonder what the support will be for previous title imports? I doubt that 1, 2 and 3 will be able to import their tracks but if they can I'd be pretty damn happy.

Meh. What I really want is new content for RB3 or a new game for Xbox 360. I own an Xbox One but my 360 ain't going anywhere anytime soon.

I might buy it for Xbox One if they find a way to support Xbox 360 controllers (obviously PS3 controllers, with their plug-in USB wireless dongles, are much easier proposition). I don't see myself buying new hardware; I love my Mad Catz Wooden Strat Replicas and will not be playing the game with tiny plastic controllers, ever. (I actually only used them for a few months when I first started playing the game, shortly after midnight on release day for The Beatles RB, whined into playing it by my housemate, who borrowed my car to go get the game and borrowed my PS3 to play it on ).

I finally have a reason to get an XB1!

They need to announce Ion and MPA drum support soon, though.

They've said all of the previous songs will be able to be used except for RB3. There is currently no export ability for that disc and, whether due to licensing or what I'm not sure, they may not even pursue it unless there's extremely high demand for it. RBN downloads will not be transferring over either, at least at first. The Beatles will remain untouchable too of course. The licensing will likely never allow them to include those songs in any other game. IGN has a list of over 150 songs that will not be available in RB4. The list is comprised mostly of all of the songs from RB3 and The Beatles.

I hope they offer a new midi pro controller even though they've dumped the support of pro guitar and keys. I'd be bummed if I can't use my Roland kit. I've seen screen shots of the new RB4 drum controllers and they don't have cymbals so if they're still going to support pro mode for drums they either have to make a seperate pro mode kit, which is the sort of hardware sprawl that helped get them in trouble with retail before, or offer a new midi pro controller and let people figure out their own solutions for pro drums.

I think the decision to focus on the core of what made RB2 a huge hit and pare down the "feature creep" of pro modes was a great idea. They need to focus on new and fun modes of playing the plastic instruments that are approachable by everyone and make it more of a party game again. Rocksmith does a much better job of the "pro mode" on guitar anyhow.

I'm looking forward to a new version of the game. I still play at least an hour or two of drums in RB3 nearly every week. I'm one of those who went for a PS4 for the current gen and I really had no plans to get an XB1. Now I have an excuse to get one and since it still won't be my main game machine I can set it up in my "music room" and dedicate it to Rock Band.

This is great news!!!


I want the game and all new gear the moment it is released. I still have all the prior games and stand-alones on disk.


The best part is that all of the Xbox defectors (reasons still TBD) are totally screwed on prior DLC purchases. I mean who the hell ever purchased or did anything on a PS3 besides streaming media or watch Blu-ray? Plus, we all knew our huge prior investments were tied to the prior console. Just needed to call that out.
