|11:46 am - at best, the music could be described as lame|
1. Frets on Fire, a homebrew open source GH knockoff
2. A song editor (not the one that comes with FoF, though, it's not so hot; the Freetar Editor is better)
3. (Billy & The Boingers) Cuz I'm A Boinger.mp3
4. A lot of time and note-nudging
5. A PS2 Controller-to-USB Converter to play the final product
RESULT: CONCENTRATED AWESOME (once it's finished.)
Man, I've found FoF to be super annoying. Though I can imagine that if you're doing your own song editing, it's better.
Yeah, the note charts for the songs that came with the game were a little annoying, and the in-game editor has terrible UI (and the current beta release is unstable as all hell) but any port in a storm, ay?
I'm trying to make things EASY and FUN and already have found spots in the Boingers song where I can change the difficulty. It's interesting getting note chart theory stuck in my head, that's for sure.
Also: Orleans has Rock Band Sundays. This must happen at some point.
I still have yet to play Rock Band. God do I want to.
Clearly this needs to be fixed, and fast.
I want to learn Rock Band!
Also, did you say that GH has "Girlfriend"? !!???!?!?!?! That I want to see.
I just play Phase
, on account of I don't have all the GH stuff to play with, and "Moonshiner's Daughter" is really fun for that sort of thing.
Phase is an interesting variant. Of course the PC version is Audiosurf, which in turn borrows from Amplitude and Frequency...
the ability to use your own songs, though, is awesome amazing.
If this works out, will you be moving on to U Stink But I (Heart) U?
I mean, the note chart for Cuz I'm A Boinger includes the part for the tongue twang, so a tuba would be welcome as well.
A few years down the track you'll be a Las Vegas lounge act!
