Recruit people without XNA membership who can vote by just watching videos and make their votes count half as much as regular playtesters.Honestly, the only thing that ever held me back was sheer inconvenience. If I could just turn on my Xbox and test the videos without incorporating my computer I would gladly pay the 99 a year fee, even if I had to still rebuy tracks I want to keep scores, play multiplayer etc. I can't really play the drums where I live now either which I hate.But my Madcatz keyboard just ruined a year old laptop because I tried to hook it up using something recommended on these forums from Amazon, as is.

For vocals, that's pretty easy because you have one chart, but for the others, you have 4 you have to go though, and it's actually probably easier to watch than play.Which won't exactly stir up a lot of playtesters either.

rab39;4355356 said:The only people allowed to vote would be those accepted into the Creators forum...and that's the only place the videos could be viewed, and that's where they would vote, and that's where they would give feedback. It would just be of expert versions of songs. Any songs that get published must still get a minimum of actual playtester hands on critiques, but this way would do two things: 1). help get songs to rbn faster 2). make video testers jones for released songs which they will no doubt buy and spread word on the forums about for hype.I'd guess at least 50 to 100 super forum readers would sign up for such a thing, and if it doesn't do much for 1) I'm certain it would do a lot for 2).Just a suggestion.

Catch-22;4358096 said:Yes, and you don't need an American XBL account, you just need an american address when entering your info on the creators site.

LiveHomeVideo;4358167 said:Yes, but you do need a membership with XNA (a membership to make games/rock band network songs). You can get one for free if you are in college or know someone in college.

Blasteroids;4362429 said:Someone posted AIM tracks and it did not feel right looking at the drum chart. I'm not a good drummer but it was really obviously undercharted for some reason. I do like the song, but since I am 99.9% drumming I will pass on this.
