bonethug0108;4661030 said:You mistook that. The history of the development of the game will be on display. They did not say a demo or what not would be on display.And technically they didn't say that the history of the game on display will be the announced game.
Join Harmonix developers as they discuss and dissect ten years of beatmatch gameplay creation, tracking their long and glorious tradition of designing music rhythm games like Frequency and Amplitude right up to the first public reveal of a brand new title! The panel will include gameplay examples from internal prototypes, honest discussion of our design process successes and failures, insight into how we create and test our games in development, and a synopsis of the design history of a title on public display for the very first time at the Harmonix booth. Q & A to follow.
GNFfhqwhgads;4661038 said:Okay, feel free to explain how the game would even load them to grey them out, then.
MostSpartan14;4661049 said:Here's what the description says:It pretty clearly (to me, at least) says that the panel will discuss, among other things, the design history of a completely new title that will be shown to the public for the first time at their booth. I don't see how you could interpret that any other way, but then again maybe I'm missing something really obvious. But I don't think so.
Mileycyrussoulja;4661050 said:That's what I thought too. It seems way too soon for a RB4 or a Dance Central 3.
SideshowN;4661053 said:Once your at the 2952 limit and loading new songs into the library the game would give you an option to unload previously found songs in the library to make room for new content and thus making them greyed out and not selectable.

bonethug0108;4661057 said:"Design history of a title on public display for the first time."That does NOT say the game is on display for the first time. It says that it's the first time the are putting the design history of a title on public display.This could be the new title they are announcing or it could be for anything they've done prior.
SideshowN;4661069 said:I just think its a big mistake for the next Rock Band to be on the current gen hardware when the next gen more capable hardware is on the horizon. It also depends how much the next gen consoles bring to the table and if consumers are willing to make the transition quickly. I know if RB4 came out as a launch title for the next xbox with all previously offered content transferable that would be a great selling point.
MostSpartan14;4661072 said:You forgot the end of the sentence, "at the Harmonix booth." That completely changes the meaning of the sentence. Now it's saying, "we have this completely new game on display at our booth, and during this panel we're gonna go through it's design process with you." Once again, I have no idea how you interpreted that the way you did. And BTW, why does the English language have to be so difficult
GNFfhqwhgads;4661093 said:Again, no. If the songs aren't loaded, HOW WOULD THEY SHOW UP. They would have to be loaded to show up. You know what happens when you hit 2,952 now? The rest of the songs aren't loaded. So they don't show up. Because they're not loaded. If they could gray them out, why did they possibly choose NOT to do that, and have it, say, be possible for you to select a song with yellow and pick 'Remove Song From System Cache' and then go to a grayed-out song(the magic one that loaded without being loaded) and pick 'Add Song To System Cache'?
bonethug0108;4661081 said:No, no it doesn't magically say that. It says:"...a synopsis of the design history of a title on public display for the very first time at the Harmonix booth."It does not say "of the new title" anywhere in there. I'm not saying it won't be, but you are jumping to conclusions.
bonethug0108;4661095 said:Right, which is why I suggested my solution of a completely separate music manager menu that loads nothing but the names of the songs on your drive.
MostSpartan14;4661097 said:Yes it does, it says the title they're talking about is going to be shown to the public to the first time at their booth, which implies that it's new since it's the FIRST TIME IT'S BEING SHOWN. Basically, the way you're interpreting it would be saying that the design history for whatever game it is is being shown at the booth. That doesn't make any sense. The sentence begins with, "The panel will include...". As in, they're talking about the design history during the panel, not at their booth. So why would they even have the part mentioning their booth at all?Now do you understand why what you're saying doesn't make sense?
GNFfhqwhgads;4661099 said:We've been over this before. The problem with over 3,000 songs is that NO ONE wants to scroll through 3,000 to pick and choose what to add back in.
bonethug0108;4661100 said:Go back and read my edit. You still don't get how simple this is.
bonethug0108;4661107 said:No one? I've seen quite a few people that are over the limit that want to chose what to add back in.
And it wouldn't be too hard to design something the just reads a list of songs and lets you pick them.
bonethug0108;4661107 said:No one? I've seen quite a few people that are over the limit that want to chose what to add back in. And it wouldn't be too hard to design something that just reads a list of songs and lets you pick them. They pretty much have the first part worked out. I just like that your answer to my perfectly logical solution is that NO ONE would want it, when we have people here that say the exact opposite.You don't always have to be so contrarian.Edit:Also, like I said, this could be used optionally. And it could be used to keep you from scrolling 1300 songs each time. You could parse that to half, or whatever you want. That's why it's called the music manager.
GNFfhqwhgads;4661117 said:I never said no one wanted to choose what to load.I never said it would be hard to design.Picture this. You have 3,600 songs. Full library. EVERY TIME you start the game, you get booted to a list of ALL 3,600 songs, and if you want something added, you have to find something you're willing to delete, then find your way to what you want added. Since Rock Band loads packs as one item, you may find yourself hitting a 'You're trying to add 3 songs, but only have 2 available slots!' error when you really only want one of the pack songs to even play that time.EVERY. TIME. Parties? That list. Solo play? That list. Quick Party Shuffle session? That list. Every time.
