(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 to FLAC, so this is basically the cleanest you'll hear all the neat little bonus tracks and soundalike renditions. I finally have the first game's stuff up too, which is good if you like "Fly on the Wall" and songs in that game that aren't "Fly on the Wall".
These are all II-only, though they'll probably work with Clone Hero and suchlike if you split the VGS into OGG. They also now come with practice mode audio, for if you like to practice your songs. (I'll have customs that you might actually need to take into practice mode in the future, promise.)
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:
