DLC Patch Notes - 2/26/08

edited April 2008 in Announcements
Hey everyone,

A few songs we have released for DLC have been patched. The patches are live already on the 360, and go live on PS3 on the 28th. Online play/leaderboards/ranking are not affected by this. To get the updated DLC songs you can re-download them (directions at bottom of post). You won't be punished for not downloading them again, however, as the fixes have no effect on gameplay.


The following songs have incorrect genre tags which cause them to be lost when sort by genre in-game:


Title/Launch Date

“Can’t Stand Losing You” 20-Nov

“Roxanne” 20-Nov

“Synchronicity II” 20-Nov

“Police Pack 01” 020-Nov

“Brass in Pocket” 18-Dec


Also there was a bug where the vocals wouldn’t turn off when the user put them the whole way down but this has been fixed now! -

“Limelight” 1-Jan




How to re-download-


Xbox 360

Navigate to the System Blade ( purple ), select memory, all devices, games, Rock Band, search for any of the listed songs (right trigger is a page down ), select the song with the A button, and then select Delete.

Now either re-download from marketplace, or from the download history.


PS3

The songs won't appear in the store if you've already downloaded them, so you will need to re-download them from your download list.

    The problem seemed to be with only Canadian Xbox Live accounts, The Canadian Marketplace lacked the songs well the Police pack. It supposedly has been corrected as per majornelson's blog.

    And before anybody jumps on him with "I'm not IN Canada!"...

    I'm looking at XBLM right now. Police Pack 01 is right where it's always been, between Blackened and the QotSA Pack 01.

    The individual songs are towards the bottom between Cherry Bomb and Little Sister. Remember, the songs are listed in Chronilogical order, not alphabetical.

    What time today did these go up? I just downloaded ALOT of songs for the first time earlier this afternoon. Do I have to go through that again or do I have the current ones?

    I can hardly wait to re-download these songs for my PS3.

    Any chance of fixing the voice lag problems though? Isn't that more important than fixing the tags?

    I think a patch for adding HYPERSPEED would have been more useful than this.

    Probably more important yes, but the tags is probably easier for them to fix. I'm sure the other will happen eventually.

    We idiots already checked in our Download History and the download isn't there anymore. It is also nowhere to be found on Xbox Live. Check the comments on the post Major Nelson did on this and you can find several more idiots that have the same problem we do.
    You're not searching by new releases, right? You're actually going to the game tab in xlm?

    Do I have to delete the game data utility for Rock Band PS3 and download all the songs I bought again or just re-download the songs listed above?

    When I read the title I thought this was going to be the Guitar patch for the PS3, guess not :(. Its cool that your fixing theses problems though, just sucks you have to re download the songs.

    Wouldn't be that bad if I turned on the system and said "Updates to your content, want us to fix it all for you?"

    I did it and it wasn't terrible but anyone who doesn't visit online websites maybe unaware of these updates. There not critical but they are updates... to content we have paid for.

    Bah...I'm midly annoyed about the loss of 5 bucks...I'm more annoyed at the fact that I'm missing 3 songs that I loved playing...but I'll get over it!
    Cant you just re-download them

    Ive done that before, when me and my friends were sick of getting owned by Metallica pack when it first came out I deleted them, then just re-downloaded them for FREE later

    I re-downloaded the tracks as instructed, but I'm confused.

    Now I see that "Next to You" and "Truth Hits Everybody" are considered Rock, but "Can't Stand Losing You", "Roxanne", and "Syncronicity II" are considered Pop-Rock. How did they figure that one?

    Did the title of the thread not give you a clue that this wasn't going to be about the guitar?

    For PS3 if I redownload the songs from my download history list, will it count towards the 5 times that I am allowed to reDL purchased content?

    Edit: let's not contribute to piracy!

    If I'm reading that right are you actually admitting on the Rock Band forum that you are letting your brother and sister pirate the Rock Band DLCs for their PS3s? :eek:

    I have seen a whole thread of people talking about sharing DLC with people. Just the other day.


    You can do that but it counts as one of the 5 redownloads you get. You have to sign in their PS3 with your account and goto your download list. PS3 doesnt have the DRM problems that XBOX360 has with that.

    Anyone know when the NIN pack will appear in the PSN.

    Since no one has bothered to answer my question, I'll bring it back to the forefront:

    DO I HAVE TO DELETE THE GAME DATA AND DOWNLOAD ALL THE SONGS AGAIN OR JUST RE-DOWNLOAD THE SELECTED TRACKS?

    You should consider having us download a seperate patch. Re-downloading songs on PS counts against our total download count which is 5 for a purchased item.
