I can't wait for some XNA game to use this. Or maybe even a game that you have to use the motion in the guitar and the whammy bar in same game.

another nice feature in FOF is that you can add your songs from the PS2 version of Guitar Hero I
But this just takes alot of time....

I just hope that they´ll soon add whammybar function and starpower to Fof smile.gif

Btw : i have the 360 GHII Guitar and it works like a charm in Frets On Fire

Cheers!

I am running windows xp home edition with the 95065 model guitar and confirms this definately works:
To clear up the vague intructions go to in Frets on Fire
Main Menu/Settings/Key Settings/ then just go to fret one press Return(default control) then just press the green button on your X-plorer controller and repeat for the rest of the fret buttons and change the return button to the strum button on your controller and your set. Hope this helps
Does anyone know how to get more songs into this game? or how to maybe make them? any help would be apprieciated


yeah ive got a dvd with over 300 songs on it gh1 gh2 and a lot of custom ones as well ranging from supaeasy to hard.
pm me and i'll see about sending you one

now that is some creative thinking - guitar motion control.

nice thread.

im wondering though, why is there a headset port? i know this isnt a live multilayer game, so whats the point?


i think i did hear that they might add live multiplayer via an auto update, can this be done, would they do this?

Well if it didnt have a headset port then there wouldnt be room for upgrades in future release like GH3. It would be pretty sh!tty if you had to buy a new guitar because this one didnt support chat. Or maybe youll be able to hear your guitar through a headset, kinda like a monitor? I dunno..................

The reason for the headset.. is the same in just about every other peripheral made for the 360. While yes, GHII is not LIVE multiplayer, there is nothing stopping you from playing your single player or co-op game on your side, and talking in private chat on LIVE.

I know.. I did this the other night with No Remorse. Neither of us wanted to drop outta GHII to sit in a lobby in Gears or Graw2 to talk (we normally have 2-6 man conversations going in game lobbies with the crew)

Headset works fine btw.

The future holds some interesting news.. Rock Band, from Harmonix. 4 Man Ban, featuring a classic and bass guitar, drum, and a mic (a la singstar style)

not sure what they are gonna feed us GHII owners though. just more content I imagine.

If DDR has online support then I'm sure they will try to add online support for GHII. Is it just me or are games that make you physically interact are funner than games that don't.

PS: Frets On Fire is a really awesome game.

Just a FYI, the controller did not work right away on my XP SP2 machine, but once I downloaded the drivers for the 360 controller it was detected and works perfectly.

[b]Oh, btw, for those who don't know and have this game- There are 2 different models of guitars out in the wild. One guitar, model number: 95055, is commonly known to have a faulty whammy bar. Model number: 95065 is said to have fixed this issue.


This actually isn't true. BOTH models have whammy bar problems. I know because I've got one of the 95065's and the bar only works about half the time. A lot of other people with 95065's are reporting the same problem as well.

I think the confusion about it started on release day when someone with both models noticed his 95056 worked fine while his 95055 was having problems. So he assumed that there was nothing wrong with the 56's and posted this info with pics and the news spread like wildfire, so now everyone assumes the 55's are the only ones with problems.


The good news is that if you have a guitar with a bad whammy bar, it can be fixed fairly easily. Someone on the official GH forums posted this fix with pics. Just tried it out on my guitar controller and my whammy bar has been working flawlessly ever since:

Quick question but maybe not an easy answer....

I plugged in my guitar tonight and drivers were detected immediately. I have tested this with windows XP and Vista home and I have found the same issue and wonder if anyone else has it.

The D-pad is not recognized at all on either machine thus the Strum bar does not work. When I plug in both wireless 360 controller (with usb adaptor) or wired 360 controller, I find that even those D-pads are not not being recognized as well.

Last night I played ultimate alliance and the D-pad worked just fine along with emulators and so on.....



I am wondering why this is and does anyone else have this issue???

( I have not tried to just reinstall the controller drivers again from MS)

The worst thing happened to my GH2.
I went to pick it up to play it and
BAM! Static shocked me.
Went to go play and guess what? Strummer is completely fried.
So I go to find my receipt to bring it back, and I can't find it, searching for hours.
Finally look in my dryer, and its in my pants pocket, all stuck together from the wash and dryer.
Words are completely gone and can barley read anything.
So I go to try my luck and I bring it to Best Buy to exchange it and guess what?
GUITAR HERO 2, OUT OF STOCK come back in a few weeks.
SO LAME!

I can't find the settings in Frets on Fire to actually use the Xplorer. XP downloaded the drivers and the Xplorer is installed, but I searched the settings in Frets on Fire and cannot get the Xplorer to work.

EDIT: Nevermind I got it.
