Guitar Hero 2 X-plorer not Broken - Patch Coming
Posted by XanTium | April 13 09:49 EST | News Category: Xbox360
From xboxic.com: [QUOTE] While Guitar Hero 2 is an excellent game, it has been plagued by hardware problems, being that the guitar's whammy/tremolo bar does not function properly. Word has just reached us though from Activision that it's not the guitar that's broken but the software.
DIY-artists have already supplied remedies involving taking the guitar apart yourself, but as it turns out it's just anti-cheating software gone hyperactive. Game developer Red Octane's official word on the subject: "On learning of potential issues with the whammy bar on the Xbox360 guitar, we immediately began extensive testing of both the guitar and the software to isolate any issues with whammy bar functionality and the corresponding causes. Our testing identified a specific software element that may, in certain situations, cause the whammy bar to lose responsiveness. Given that this is a software-driven, an patch is being developed to fix the issue and will arrive as soon as possible via download on Xbox Live. We will confirm soon a target date for this download." [/QUOTE]

I have a 95065 [correct?]
I do not experience any problems with my whammy bar.
Launching the "Star power" [or whatever it's called] can sometimes be unresponsive...
Every once and a while my fret buttons will drop. For example- I'll just be holding down the blue one, and I'll hold down the strum thingy [for a chord]..and randomly during the chord, the button [on the screen] just goes up [as if i let go]..sometimes going up and down, up and down [as if I'm strumming]...idk, some weird occurrences.
