Feedback on what to change / improve. ADD YOUR VIEWS

Postby cliffski » Wed May 09, 2007 2:25 pm

Ok, we all know that every PC game has patches, so we might as well accept that there *will* be one. But lets make it a good one. This is to be *the *official* thread* for discussing what should be changed / tweaked / fixed / added in any upcoming patches to the game. I promise to read every comment here and consider every suggestion, and will be working on a patch and extra content the moment the game is out the door.

On the practice screen - allow us to hit 'enter' to start the session so we're not trying to reposition our fingers from the mouse to the keypad when the notes start. :)

Bug: When you create an album and you have more songs that the list shows (you need to scroll) you cannot scroll down to the other songs.

dang. consider both of these on my list for the first patch. That will also fix a few other niggles such as the hint windows dissapearing the minute you click them, the tooltips being too sensitive to mouse movement and that "fliP" error on some cards when you toggle fullscreen to windowed.

Pretty minor, but can get annoying as game goes on.

I can't move the pictures that represent the things the band has bought around the screen. Right now I'm having problems to see how many t-shirts I have and my drummer has been buried beneath a sea of clutter.

Courious thing is, I can move things around in the demo, but not on the full game. Go me.

I'm playing on a laptop under windows XP, and had no problems with the demo.

EDIT: Ah, also, when loading a saved game, you cannot go back to the list of special things going on that day, like gigs or going to another band's concert.

Great game, by the way.

Cheers,

Alex

thats totally weird. can you double click items on the screen? is this a one-off? or if you save and quit, then retsrat the game and laod it, does that issue go away? it sounds like some invisible window is 'eating' the mouse input.

Rock Legend just ate my Sunday afternoon!

Here's a few things I noticed that it would be great to tweak...

- I got them the cheap McDonald's fries rider and upgraded them to the chicken rider later but they continually kept complaining that they didn't have a rider. I deleted it and added it again but they still kept complaining, as if they didn't recognise it.

- I played through once until the end of the 5 years before starting a new game with a new band. The new band's name wasn't recognised (they kept referring to the nauseatingly titled old band 'XLR8R' in the song names). The number of years the band had played for was confused as it seemed to start from 5 years and continued until 10.

- When you buy T-shirts etc. would it be possible to show how many you already have and make it clear that you can continue clicking the +100 button to add more? (I was selling out every gig before I worked out that I could buy a small countries worth).

- Could the band's tiredness be shown on the main screen and the 'beginning of the day' screen to help reduce the screen switching you have to do?

- As much as I like the music it was a bit much after 5 hours+ Would it be possible for the game to play MP3's from a folder somewhere?

- It would be really helpful if the green buttons at the bottom of the screen had a single word which said what they did e.g. 'REHEARSE' as even after a few hours I got confused occassionally (which probably says more about me than it does about the game).

- If there are no venues who will accept you you can still go to the gig screen and this still forwards time. I think some of the other screens work like this too. You don't perform an action but time is still forwarded which seems a little unfair.

- This is probably more of a plea as I am so rubbish at it but it would be great if I could earn a little bit of musicianship for practicing even if I fail but gain more for being brilliant at it. I enjoy the challenge of the musician screen but it stands out as an arcade element in a simulation.

- Here's the biggie... It would be nice to see the relationships between the band members, so they could have arguments, fall in love, get pregnant, go solo, get addictions etc. I don't know if my band were a bit too well behaved as they only had one argument and that seemed to resolve itself.

Cheers for such a fun game. I really like its satirical style.

I keep having issues where I've bought all the equipment available yet the members all want better stuff and keep complaining they don't have it.

BTW the game should coexist happily with any MP3 playing program. you can load up a playlist in windows media player, set it running, then turn off the games music and play fullscreen. Not many games support automatic mp3 streaming because you have to pay huge fees for the licence to play MP3 files ;(

Haha, I changed how much they got on a daily basis from $2 to $100 on accident when I meant $10 so I played it through like that just to see how well they could do being rich. :)

I have a few problems:

I hate wasting a whole day when I click a screen only to not be able to do anything there.

I want an easy mode that goes to 10 years. I'm having trouble getting far in 5. Or have the ability to do 2 things per day. (It doesn't take one day to buy an album, or listen to one song.)

If I have to buy my band's instruments, I want to keep it. In a normal band the individual performer is usually responsible for their own instruments. I hate paying that much and seeing it walk out the door.

Why do I have to be lead singer?

Can CDs I listen to go away when I'm done.

I need signs that a band member won't be showing up for a gig. I hate wasting a week for them to all of the sudden not show up, and not tell me.
