(Hi, if you're coming here looking for stuff: I have a really major update pending for when I don't have a bunch of projects hanging over my head. Stuff like a proper tool index, more customs, and documentation for making stuff with this game. For now, here's what I've got as it is.)
I've been obsessed with the first few Guitar Hero games for a very, very long time, and it's not coming off. Sounds great, plays fantastic, style out the ass, all of it. (And then Rock Band taught me drums, and so begat my doomed, boyish love for Harmonix.)
I wrote the TCRF pages on Guitar Hero II's demos, in case you doubt my autism.
Naturally, I've amassed a bit of a collection of tools and detritus for the games, mostly II, and here's where I collect it all.
Rips and mixdowns
I personally mixed these from the in-game stems down, so this is basically the cleanest you'll hear all the neat little bonus tracks and soundalike renditions. The first game's stuff is in here now, and 80's has the demo "I Want Candy" now too. MP3s are encoded by Lame 3.100 at VBR v3, so if you like another bitrate or format, grab the FLACs and transcode them yourself.
I've been trying to produce a custom a month for a few now, and here they are, most recent first. I give these the game-quality treatment as much as I can, lighting keyframes, fretmapping, those funny
I also have a lot of obscure modding tools lying around, and I'd like to see them not disappear when my hard drive eventually does. Here's a ZIP of them. If you need any of this, you should probably join MiloHax too in case you need help or just like dicking around.
As for what's inside:
