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.

    Hi there, I just deleted my tracks. Now when I look in the game store the tracks (Police pack) are no longer listed. The tracks are not listed in my download history, but other Rock Band songs are still there. The song Brass in my Pocket is still listed in the marketplace (I have not bought it), but the Police pack and all three single songs are not listed anywhere. This is extremely frustrating. I followed the advice about deleting the tracks because I read about it on Major Nelson's website. Now I will never do anything like this again for fear of deleting my precious tracks, so you'd probably better not make any mistakes on future downloads. PS, I am in Canada, so maybe the tracks are not on the system yet? Still they are not in the download history either..:mad:
    I have the exact same problem as you GOLD5. I am also in Canada so it might be an Xbox Live Canada issue...To anyone else in Canada, do not perform this update or you might lose your Police Pack.

    Sweet

    What about a patch for Fortunate Son, released in 1969, but tagged as a 70's song in Rock Band? (sorry... i'm just particular about giving the 60's it's credit)

    Gold5 and sickshift, if they do not appear in the Rock Band game content, did you check your download history? Everything you have ever downloaded from songs to demos to themes will be there, and it will require a bit of scrolling, but hopefully you find the songs there.

    You idiots haven't lost your pack, just go to your Download History and it's sitting right there.
    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.

    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!

    Same issue here, The Police Pack and the 3 individual songs don't shor up. Hopefully they'll be up soon. I'm also hoping that the download history entry shows up again once the tracks get re-added.

    I can't believe they didn't check to make sure that the songs were re-uploaded correctly or whatever before making an announcment telling everyone to do this.

    It's also from the people who said they were going to have full albums but still haven't aquired the rights to do so in the game, yet. (You think they're sitting on two or more albums, you're completely bat**** crazy)

    Huh? Where are you getting that totally bogus info from? MULTIPLE reports/interviews etc. have said that they are currently working on preparing the DLC (Who's Next in particular), which they could not do if they didn't have the rights.

    Also, did a person from HARMONIX ever promise GH2 online, or was it someone from Red Octane and/or Activision????

    Can you fix the Overdrive in Interstate Love Song Drums? One OD phrase is cut off by a drum fill.

    What about the incorrect note chart for drums in Limelight? That would have been nice to fix.

    ..I ALWAYS have to stop myself from hitting that snare.

    Is it possible the missing songs were taken down from Live so they could fix the issue, and they haven't gotten the corrected content online?

    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.

    You're not searching by new releases, right? You're actually going to the game tab in xlm?

    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.
