Ok. I wanted to use a rock band controller in GH3 and have the tapping buttons work great, and have some extras some ppl would consider cheats, so here it goes. You can remove the "cheats" if you want to. They were just to see if I could.

1. Joy to key (Only if script doesn't work right. Skip for now)
Get it here
http://www.electracode.com/4/joy2key/JoyToKey%20English%20Version.htm

2. Using Joy to key set the rock band guitar to this (Only if script doesn't work right. Skip for now)
Strum Up = up
Strum Down = down
Green = g
Red = r
Yellow = y
Blue = b
Orange = o
Tapping = t
Starpower (tilt) = space
Select/back = q
Start = s
Selector Switch = d
Right = right
Left = left
Whammy = mouse X axis

Tapping is when you press the solo buttons, the extra button that lights up. And make sure the the "Other" settings, you use POV switches, as they are strum.

3. Get Glovepie (everyone)
http://carl.kenner.googlepages.com/glovepie_download

and use my script, by copying and pasting it in glovepie, saving it, and clicking run.

Follow the directions in the code and then

4. Go into GH3, and config the settings. Just do it as you normally would, but use the rock band controller, not the keyboard. DON'T TOUCH THE SOLO BUTTONS. They will get configed along with the regular ones.

5. Play ROCK BAND, I mean GH3!!!!!! YAY!! You are done.
YOU MUST USE THE KEYBOARD IN GH3 UNTIL YOU GET TO THE MAIN MENU, OR IT WILL BE RECOGNIZED AS A RB GUITAR, NOT A KEYBOARD! IT MUST THINK THAT IT IS A KEYBOARD!


Some fun things to play with.

1. If you hold select/back button for 2 seconds, it will talk to you and auto activate star power as soon as it is able to. make sure you deactivate this before you exit the program. It will talk to you upon deactivation too.

2. Move the selector switch to anything but reading 0. It will hold green for you. Do I hear TTFAF intro?

3. One of the weirdest things is you can activate starpower by saying star power into a microphone. It's really fun to do that.





That should be it! have fun, and any questions or comments, post or PM me!! I have yet to actually test the code with a rock band controller, but it worked great with the keyboard, so I hope you have fun with it!!! Get PLAYING!! YOU MUST USE THE KEYBOARD IN GH3 UNTIL YOU GET TO THE MAIN MENU, OR IT WILL BE RECOGNIZED AS A RB GUITAR, NOT A KEYBOARD! IT MUST THINK THAT IT IS A KEYBOARD! It will still show the guitar attached when looking to play multiplayer, but it won't do anything.

That's actually not how the tapping buttons work in Rock Band (during a solo, that is). It doesn't matter which buttons you have pressed down, pressing a solo button will hit a note of that color. Also, you can do chords by holding down some of the notes in it and tapping the others. An good example of both of these would be solo in The Hand That Feeds. You can just tap the red button at a constant pace while holding down the frets for whichever chords are coming up, and you'll hit the red notes and the chords.

It's a bit weird looking in code, but it's almost the same during gameplay. I can touch it up if you tell me EXACTLY what happens. I'll duplicate it.

I actually didn't notice any difference whatsoever in-game. I mapped the keys using joy2key, pasted your code into GlovePie and hit run. Then with both running I started GH3 and went and mapped the keyboard to the keys you referenced for joy2key. Once I got in-game I got the same result as I had before.

If it helps it's a 360 Strat.

I just started reading about GlovePIE, and have a high-level question.

So, do you have your RB USB guitar plugged into a PC which is running these apps to translate input into GH3 commands? Then, you have some outgoing connection from your PC back to your Xbox running GH3?

Just want to make sure I understand the topology.

lol. No. This is just for the computer version of rock band. You plug your guitar into the computer, and use this, and then play GH3 on the computer with the solo buttons and everything. It's Really fun.


*teancum
Glad that you got that working. Is there anything that I need to touch up? I'm always wanting to make it better. What do you think of the extra features?

PC version of Rock Band?
PC version of Guitar Hero?

Or are you just talking about Frets on Fire?

There is no PC rock band, but this works for GH3 PC and FOF

Edit: Why did you post that with the guitar. We all know, lmao.

Glad that you got that working. Is there anything that I need to touch up? I'm always wanting to make it better. What do you think of the extra features?


Actually I was saying that it didn't work. It works like it did before I ran Glovepie, etc.

Nope, no difference. Hitting green (w/o strumming) strummed orange, hitting orange (w/o strumming) strummed red. That's all I get. Glovepie/Joy2Key on or off it's the same.

Also, GlovePIE produces an error--
line 159: function or key name expected, instead of "var"
