RB2 theme solo + Star Power makes frets hard to see

Postby ofirissmart » Thu Apr 16, 2009 8:06 am

I pretty much love the RB2 theme but the combination of star power and the blue glow of the solos makes the fretboard incredibly hard to see, what can I do in the options to fix this issue? Thanks in advance.

You can change the neck transparency in Display Settings > Fretboard Settings > Change Neck Transparency.

I set my Overlay setting to something like 50% and I have no problem seeing notes anymore.

I'm not sure what you mean.... you mean that you want FoFiX 3.100 with the ability to set neck transparency or... what?

You unzip the contents of the patch to your current FoFiX -directory. Or you can create a copy of your current FoFiX -folder and unzip it there. That way if something goes wrong or you want to switch back to 3.100, you have a working version on your computer already and no need to reset your settings all over again.

Well i guess i must be unlucky, i just did like you said. First i tried to extract it to my Frets on Fire directly and replace the old files by the new ones, the game didn't work after that (it says view fretsonfire.log blabla)
i deleted all, and tried this time to put the update in a separated folder, the game worked but the update didn't.

I tried with the installer too and it gave me the same problem. :cursing:
But thank you for trying to helping me...

Oh yeah, you probably have to delete/move your fretsonfire.ini -file out of your FoFiX -folder and from Application Data/fretsonfire -folder(Start > Run > %appdata%/fretsonfire/). Then it should work.

Which version did you try? Some people have had trouble installing python 2.4 -version, but 2.6 -version seems to work fine.

I have tried both now, and still doesn't work.
Is there any way i can isolate the file which contains this option?
I mean it's maybe just a file in the whole update that crash all.

Hmm I'm not sure if you can isolate the option like that... I can think of one other option: download a new FoFiX 3.100, unzip it somewhere and then unzip the update patch to that folder.

Hmm actually I remember solving the overdrive-neck problem by going to RB2-theme folder, removing the 'overdriveneck.png'. I then went to necks folder and chose a random neck, I think it was a plain grey neck.... anyway, I copied that neck to RB2-theme folder and renamed it to 'overdriveneck.png' and then it was much better to play when there was a solo and overdrive on at the same time.
