Yeah...I hope I can copy/paste the chart somehow o_o


This is the latest version:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=32725

Sufficiently-old versions cannot copy/paste outside of the current chart. Open the Help menu and select "About" to see which version you have and tell us what it is. Run a search for *.eof if you're having trouble finding your chart.

The thing that really gets me about this is the fact that EOF shows the notes at the beginning playing exactly when they should, but when I play it in FoFIX the music starts much earlier than the notes first appear. Like I said, it's not like it's off by the same amount the whole song: it seems to be WAY off at the beginning and then kind of hit or miss, but mostly solid, as the song progresses. The thing that I noticed is that the first beat or so of the song is at about 155 bpm, and then I have a beat with the first note of the song, which is where the real bpm starts (90 bpm.) I got it a little better by adjusting the beginning bpm to 90, but that seemed to throw other notes off of the beat lines, even if the sound is relatively synced up. I know it's not an issue with AV Delay in FoFiX; none of the other songs I played do this.


It's best to sync the first beat marker (which affects the delay value). Other than that, I don't really know what you're talking about. You can post an EOF or MIDI file if you want somebody to look at it. One important thing to note is that when checking note placement in EOF, you should only rely on "clap" to hear if the notes are in the right spot. The appearance of them being in the right spot is too deceiving, as AV delay varies too much from one system to the next.

Thanks. I'll be sure to use the clapping feature rather than trust the eyes on this. I think what I'll do is go to the extent of placing notes at every spot in the song and then make sure they're in sync with the claps before actually charting the notes. It's a small price to pay for the knowledge that the chart will be in sync when I get done.

Here's my first song. I made the song with Guitar Pro 5 and used your tutorial for the note chart. Hope you like it. :D
It's one minute long and isn't too hard.. except for the mini guitar & bass solo! I might chart bass, because it looks pretty fun.

I can't belive I missed this nifty little feature in iTunes that converts mp3s

(Compared to media-convert) XO

Just finished working on my first fretted song! Picked something easy and it wasn't as horrible a process as I imagined. Just wanted to give props and thanks here, I used this tutorial as a baseline for my work. I'm gonna post my song to be reviewed later, not the best, but a start at least lmao. Just wanted to post my general set up to success on the off chance someone finds it useful.

[MAC 10.5.7]

The following were run under OS X;

1.) AUDACITY --- for converting MP3's to OGG (installing LAME is a pain on a MAC, so the built in converter doesn't work, no biggie).
2.) TuxGuitar --- for converting GuitarPro files to Midi (Also had alot of success with a java applet called DGuitar, TuxGuitar's GUI is just nicer).
3.) MixMeister BMP Analyer --- To get/confirm BPM
4.) EOF --- DUH! for fretting

I installed Parallels; then ran the following under Liunx (Ubuntu 8.10);

1.) LMMS --- This tool is a great open source FL alternative, esp., for the way FL is used in fretting.

Very simple, no software headaches.

Thanks again for all the work! :2thumbsup:

Thanks for this great tutorial! I already made my first song (https://www.fretsonfire.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=39047) it took me only like 4 hours or so to produce that and I think that's pretty good for the first time :)
I luv Fallout!!!

For some reason I can't run EOF, I would love to try this but the audio always skips.

I am running Vista on an HP G60 Laptop.

I have a problem.

I've followed the tutorial, everything is correct ie: the BPM etc...

But when i test my song in FoF, the notes that are supposed to be extended appear as one single note.

Can anyone help meh out? :>

I used this tutorial as a guide to help me make my first chart for Frets on Fire, "Talk To Her" by Priestess (https://www.fretsonfire.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=41008). The information here was really helpful, so thanks coolguy567!
Gah.

You can. If you select one or more notes, you can toggle them to make them "crazy" or in other words, allowing you to overlap it with another note without any truncated tails. The option is Note>Toggle Crazy (or just press T when you have one or more notes selected).
