If you missed it on the Facebook page, Ubisoft have updated the real guitar game Rocksmith with a list of ten fixes that raise the game’s enjoyability.
The 12 MB patch has changed the following:
- The user is now able to select ‘Songs’ from the Multiplayer Post Play screen, allowing them to select a new song without having to re-calibrate the guitar each time
- A fix has been entered to disqualify any Guitarcade Game score that was gotten through exploitation of the Pause Button. A warning message appears on the Pause Screen informing the user that pausing the game again will disqualify their score from the leaderboards
- The amount of lives that the user has in Riff Repeater has been increased to 30 when selected from Event Manager or Song selection.
- The user is now able to invoke the precision tuner before quick-tuning in any song or event, excluding multiplayer
- The user is now able to select their own “Phrase Mastery” level in the Pause Menu of Riff Repeater activities. Completing the phrase on the set level carries that progress into the full song, unless the new phrase level is LOWER than what has actually been achieved naturally
- The user can now start new songs at a HIGHER phrase level if they are good enough (Level 7 as opposed to Level 5), and they can also level up high-level phrases with fewer correct repetitions
- A fix has been implemented so that the “Satisfaction” Single Note arrangement can be unlocked for Master Mode
- A fix has been implemented so that the “Do You Remember” Chord arrangement can be unlocked for Master Mode.
- Lag Correction will be a new feature in the Options menu to adjust the difference between sound and how fast notes appear
- General stability improvements to fix crashes
Not a huge jump from where we were before, but any updates are good updates! Glad to see that the Riff Repeater has done away with the “only five lives” business and entered the Konami Code for a full thirty lives. Hopefully more patches in the future will further improve playability.
Coming soon, we should have bass support, as producer Nao Higo said through a very thin veil, but before then, we can enjoy two tracks from grunge legends Pearl Jam set to drop on Tuesday of next week.
