So here is a new release, and hey, it's once more fully playable! as possible........

 

So there is a little more to read to know about this as controls are somehow not usual...

Dump includes exe and dlls and a launcher taking care of path and other commands and settings to make the game portable & one-click.


Game has been tested and working pretty good under Win7 x64 & Win10 x64, is pretty fun and plays 2 players nicely!!!!!:fiesta::fiesta:.

 

[IMPORTANT]

IF YOU ARE A PLAYER OF "GUITAR HERO 3" PC VERSION, USING THIS WILL WIPE YOUR SETTINGS AND YOUR SAVES!!! BE CAREFUL AND BACKUP THESE FILES!!!

 

[DOWNLOAD]

So have fun with this one, here is the download link:

 (extract with 7zip, password is "MOHKERZ" without quotes).

NOTE: There is a crashfix v3 in a separate archive file, just replace the original files with these files to fix StarPower crash.... 

            And let me know if it doesn't work or worse....:very-good:

 

EDIT:  new patch v4 enable the FREEPLAY setting by default, and UNLOCK everything in the game: characters, guitars and songs!!!!! 

 

[SETTINGS]

There is an Xinputter.ini file at game root, you can edit the key mappings for emulated x360 controllers done by the included Xinput1_3.dll. Lets see the controls section below for this.

And you can edit the debug entry unlockmainmenu by changing value to 1.

This enable the main menu at boot, and let you choose which mode to play.

You even have access to DEBUG MENU to UNLOCK EVERY SONGS or CHARACTERS or else..... nice!

 

To choose your resolution, edit the AspyrConfig.xml file included at game root. That's all! Tested from 800x600 to 1600x900 and it's perfect!

 

So, to run the game, just extract the archive anywhere and run the LAUNCHER exe "AS ADMIN" (if not some patches may fail).

Note1: to accept all your settings, game sometimes need to be closed and rerun....

Note2: coin is not handled atm, so you have to set game mode to freeplay in TEST MENU (see controls below).

Note3: game is known to be laggy on some computers, so you have to adjust video and audio lags in TEST MENU too.

 

[CONTROLS]
Game has been made compatible with any x360 controller....

The embedded Xinput1_3.dll accepts the remap from Xinputter.ini file, that emulates a keyboard as controller.

To use you controller, just rename the Xinput1_3.dll to something else.

Just plug your controller and figure it out.

It is not tested, but you can try x360ce with your real controller and map it as you like.

There is even a special guitar setting, apparently better choose "Alternate Guitar" that simulates 360 guitars.

Let me know if you have any chance playing with a real guitar device, i'm really curious about that.

Well, nuff said!

See Xinputter.ini file for mapping.

Once again Raw Thrills mapping are awful and are very different in frontend and in game....

So if anybody want to sort this out, feel free... (I did the best I could...)

What's important is now:

To press START in attract mode in FREEPLAY, press the GREEN, BLUE and ORANGE frets controls you have for player1...

To press TEST in attract mode and get to the TEST MENU, press the BLUE PLAYER1, BLUE PLAYER2 and START PLAYER2.


[CAB HARDWARE INFORMATION]
REAL-IO:       This Raw Thrills cab has 2 special arcade guitars, 2 start buttons and some service, test and volume too.
NETWORK:   This might work if you intend to reach a custom server, but i did not tried or fixed anything here.

 

[MODDING]

Guitar Hero 3 all versions, on all platforms have been heavily moded and enhanced with plugins and new songs.

So this one sharing a lot with xbox and pc versions, is able to handle lots of mods too, feel free to show your skills at modding!

And if you're even a QB super hacker we can get the arcade experience even more! Hope I'll see ya!


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Please note that files are modified and will not properly work on a REAL Raw Thrills cabinet.

Special thanks to: 
-my IO digger

-my dongle friend

-angryzor for Xinputter

-LocalH for his GH knowledge and advices

Nice to hear that x360 controller work. 

Do you have 2 to test 2 player ? 

To unlock everything use debug menu as explained... Or play it hard ! 

And i dont like coins, I love freeplays !

Merci pour cette release :)

 

Je viens de tester sur Windows 10, petit problème de jeu après le premier écran de lancement du jeu. Je suis obligé de faire passer en premier plan, mais cela fonctionne 2 secondes et en nouveau

2 player buttons work but need remapped...

Main problem is it crashes even with your fix so dunno how we can sort this out 1 player is fine strange.

Oh and you still need coins to play certain songs in co-op I think because it asks for credit for certain songs.

 

Nope it is crashing on certain songs with one player Lacuna Coil Closer.

@Mohkerz Thank you again for another game.  Game open up and loads but it then shrinks to taskbar, and even when click on it in the taskbar it opens up for less than a second and shrinks back to taskbar with both the original exe and the fix exe.

Again thank you for all you do on here

Exact same problem here, the game open, I see the loading screen and then it minimizes. Can't find a way to keep the game visible.

Thank you soo much @Mohkerz for another fabulous arcade game!!! The game works very well with the x360's Guitars. It brings back the old days when Guitar Hero was rocking the years!

Hey guys so I fixed the minimizing problem I think by going into properties for GHA.exe, then the compatibility tab and ticking "Disable full screen optimizations" This is in windows 10 so I'm not sure if you have the same option in windows 7,8.

 

Also to Mohkerz. First off thank you! Second I have tested the game at 1920x1080 and it seems to work fine and looks fantastic!

 

Question though, when using a 360 controller what buttons are the strum bar? Or do you not need the strum bar when using a controller? Does this mean if I use a guitar controller that the strum bar is not needed and wont work properly?

Try changing the GHA.exe to run as admin. I just played through Lacuna Coil Closer and it didn't crash for me.

 

Also I think if you go into the test menu and turn off everything that requires credit then you don't need them at all.

One issue I did have, it looks like if you fail a round and the game goes into the attract mode or goes to the continue screen, where it flashes "Press Start" at the bottom of the screen, the start button no longer works and you have to exit to play again... Hopefully that can be fixed...

Guys, I can't for the life of me figure out the controls. I've read Mohkerz instructions a dozen times. I wish to use the keyboard and my interpretation of the instructions is to leave Xinput1_3.dll and Xinputter.ini alone. I boot the game via the launcher (both the launcher and the game executable have been set to "run as admin", the Enter key works to get past the initial instructions screen and once in attract mode I press 4 + R + Space (BLUE PLAYER1, BLUE PLAYER2 and START PLAYER2) to enter the test mode to change everything over to freeplay but the key combo isn't working and none of the keys seem to have any effect. I tried deleting Xinput1_3.dll and using an XBOX One controller but the keyboard Enter key still works and I can't attempt to go into test mode because I only have one XBOX controller.
 
Changing unlockmainmenu to a value of 1 does boot the game into debug mode but I cannot move the selection or select anything because neither the XBOX controller buttons or the keyboard keys have any effect.
 
I assume I'm missing something obvious, can someone please help me move forward? Thank you!

Mohkerz i figured out whats the problem so you know ok GHA_LAUNCHER_v1_admin is the one you boot and the game will start i copy the crash fix and overwrite the GHA.exe file just make sure you right click on GHA.exe and set to run as admin then your good to go

On the GHA_LAUNCHER_v1_admin right click with mouse the run with admin and it will work big ups to MOHKERZ for this great release and follow his instructions for xbox one controller support you have to rename the xinput1_3.dll to xinput 13.dll thats it confirmed and working and dont forget to copy the crack over so you dont get any problems

I tried it with 2 guitars and I couldn't select the second guitar in the menu, seemed like the the strum bar wasn't mapped correctly for player 2, I could be wrong though.

Windows 10 Enterprise 64 Bit

Xbox 360 Xplorer Guitar Controller.

 

Edit: Confirmed it's starpower that breaks it for me. As soon as I get starpower it crashes. I can play in practice mode perfectly fine since it has no starpower.
