Introduction: How to Play Every Guitar Hero and Rock Band Song for Free.
Who said you can't play Guitar Hero with a Rock Band wireless guitar? And what about those people on YouTube - How did you turn Frets on Fire to look like Rock Band? - and then they never reply. Well, today it all ends. Let the downloading begin!!! Oh yeah, with this mod, you can play Frets on Fire using Rock Band drums as well.
Find out how to turn this....into this (second image)!!!!
WARNING: My first instructable. The following instructable may suck!
Step 1: Download the Program
Download using this link.
The name of this mod is the Alarian Mod.
You can preview the mods you will get using this link.
Once the RAR file is finished downloading, create a folder on, for example, your desktop called Frets on Fire or whatever you want to call it. Now extract the contents of the RAR file into your Frets on Fire folder.
Step 2: How to Add Songs
Now comes the "I own all of the Guitar Hero games and Rock Band, just without an in-depth career mode" step.
OK, so let's start with an example. Ummm....Dreamin' by Weezer. I'm sure you're all dreaming of the day that you'll be as awesome as me. Just kidding. Or am I?
Click here to access the Frets on Fire Fan Forum. Create an account. Mine is SanjayMaru1994.
Now, open up the data folder in the Frets on Fire folder and create a folder entitled "songs" (copy and paste or case-sensitive, I think.)
Now, click here.
Step 3: How to Add Songs: Part 2
As I said before, the example is Dreamin' by Weezer. Now this song is DLC (Downloadable Content) in Rock Band, so find the Rock Band heading. You should see 2 links. One says Download and the other says Drum audio tracks. Click on Download. We'll get to the drumming file in a bit.
Now instead of finding the file the long way, hit Ctrl+F and type in Dreamin (as it is shown exactly). Now, click on the Dreamin' file under Weezer Pack. Download it. While it is downloading, go back to your "Frets on Fire\data\songs" folder. Create a folder called "Dreamin' by Weezer" or whatever you want to call it. Once the RAR is finished downloading, extract the contents into the "Frets on Fire\data\songs\Dreamin' by Weezer" folder.
IF YOU DO NOT CARE TO PLAY DRUMS ON THIS SONG OR DO NOT OWN ROCK BAND DRUMS, THEN CONTINUE TO THE NEXT STEP. IF YOU WANT TO PLAY DRUMS ON THIS SONG, CONTINUE READING.
Now, create a folder called Alarian into this same folder. Go back to the page where you clicked Download instead of Drum audio tracks. This time, click Drum audio tracks. Once again, hit Ctrl+F and type in Dreamin (as it is shown exactly). Select the "Weezer - Dreamin" file and download it. Extract the contents into the "Frets on Fire\data\songs\Dreamin' by Weezer\Alarian" folder. Congratulations, you have successfully added Dreamin' by Weezer (drums, guitar, and bass guitar) to your game!!!
Step 4: Play /w/ Info on Themes
Now, open up the Frets on Fire game. Go to Options and then Key settings. Configure the controls. I assume you people know how to configure your Rock Band guitar and drums for PC. Go back to the main menu and hit Play and then Play Gig. It will ask you to choose a songs directory folder (only the first time you play the game). Select the data\songs folder. The song list should show up. Select Dreamin' by Weezer, the instrument you want to use, and then the level. Enjoy!!!
You can also switch between themes (RB, GH, 8-bit) by going to Theme Settings. Screencaps to be provided in a bit.
