Orgophlax;4135235 said:RBN songs are incorrect because HMX never released the info for how to differentiate between toms and cymbals to the RBN creators until recently. Newer RBN should be OK, but that's if (and a major if) the creator decides to incorporate it.All officially HMX released DLC has correct tom/cymbal charting already since release day RB1.
Enchurito;4127624 said:Rock Band 3 (and all the download content after nickleback) NEEDS a "Turn off orange in medium, and turn off orange and blue in easy" the whole point of those modes was to make it EASIER than hard and expert.

MidianGTX;4135537 said:Please fix the solo section markings! This is the one problem I'm having with an otherwise amazing game, and it only really affects those of us that use the solo buttons to tap solos without strumming.The solo sections in RB1 & 2 were really obvious with the change in fretboard colour, but now they're only marked by blue lines along the side, and a thin blue line across the board. Because the blue lines along the side fade in and out, they're not reliable markers, and the horizontal line is transparent and hard to see. Often when a solo ends I keep tapping without strumming because the side lines fade out past the non-solo notes and I don't see the horizontal line at all. Most of the time I also don't see the solo coming until a few notes in.I love the look of the new fretboard but a transparent blue line across a blue background just isn't noticeable enough.

grizzlymaze;4135927 said:Please can we have bands back in RockBand.
Sonic_Fan;4135992 said:Oh yeah, I forgot to also mention this.Is it possible to remove the "slow" framerate animation? It just looks awful and distracts you. The animation is running real smooth and here comes a part where the framerate lowers down to like 3fps...it just doesn't look good at all. This only happens in the Rock Band 3 songs.

My girlfriend has vision difficulties and can barely see the notes when there is anything on the path. The new chart style in RB3 and TB:RB makes it almost impossible for her to play either of those games.
Originally Posted by OrgophlaxI'm having real issues with the new fretboard in RB3. Despite them adding a solid texture to it, the stage antics show through WAY more than they did in RB2, especially at the top. I also think the notes are a bit darker, and hopo notes are smaller. If they aren't smaller then the darker color makes them look smaller. And because they're darker, all the flashing that's going on makes them disappear to my eyes, especially green and orange. Also, it seems like breakneck speed doesn't space out the notes as much as it did in RB2.It all boils down to that it's much harder for me to pick up the notes than it was in RB2, especially in fast hopo runs. I think if the top of the fretboard (which is where I fix my eyes) was made less transparent so that it actually blocked out the background it'd help immensely. As it is my eyes can't pick up the notes when they first appear at the top most of the time, so once they get down to a point where they register to me, my timing is now off because I'm seeing them later than normal.So basically: Make the fretboard less transparent

Very hard to see the notes sometimes.I'd like this. It the shorter lanes and seemingly increased transparency, it's gets tricky to see the notes sometimes. If we had the option to darken the lanes up, it would be great.

Originally Posted by bengalcp09Please with the transparent fretboard. The fact that it's shorter is enough of a change, but both is too much. At times you can barely see the notes. Especially with the groove pattern then overdrive. It's almost like the game punishes you for doing well. If I miss notes because I hit a wrong button, that's one thing. If I miss a note because the video puts the spotlight on the drummer really quickly, that's very frustrating. You can add new instruments, you can have a great catalog, and you can have an awesome sorting system. But when the songs are frustrating and no longer fun to play, and it's no longer my own skill that holds me back, it makes me want to stop playing. It's really disappointing.I barely played The Beatles because I couldn't see the notes, I really don't want that to happen with this game. Please give us track options to lessen the transparency.
Originally Posted by OrgophlaxI just want to reiterate that the fretboard needs it's transparency removed, or lessened by a lot. After 3 days of playing I'm getting really frustrated with how much it's affecting me. And if it is shorter too, change it back to it's original size. There was no reason to change anything about the fretboard other than for the sake of change.
Originally Posted by GreyfusThe only possible explanation for the transparent fretboard is to allow the background animations to be seen, and I'm sure a lot of time and money and creativity went into creating the background animations (well, not as sure after reading through this entire thread of comments) but it's not why we play the game, and to sacrifice actual gameplay for the sake of aesthetics is simply vanity.The Beatles: Rock Band's note highway was pretty bad, but still semi-playable. Rock Band 3, however, is unplayable because of the fretboard transparency. Honestly, this is a game killer for me. As evidenced above, I'm not the only one this is affecting but maybe it is affecting me more severely than others as I can promise I'm done playing Rock Band 3 until this sees some sort of fix.
