Welcome to the Rock Band Customs Wiki!
In this wiki, you'll find everything you need to properly hack the Rock Band titles. This wiki covers mostly Rock Band 3, since it is the latest Rock Band version on a Nintendo console, and some network features still work. However, this wiki also covers a few things to help you with Rock Band 2, and Rock Band: The Beatles.
Please read the Terms and Conditions before using the software in this repo!
Basic Guide to Adding Customs
Start here before doing anything! These four steps will help you be able to add any customs to the Wii, Wii Family Edition, Wii Mode on the Wii U, or Dolphin.
Wii Mini Users: No guide currently exists for the Wii Mini yet, but if you're going to attempt it, then follow the emuNAND method.
Rock Band 2 Players: No guide currently exists for Rock Band 2.
Green Day: Rock Band Players: A guide exists, but the game has not been tested by HarvHouHacker. Proceed with caution.
1 - Requirements on Getting Started
Noobs start here! This first step will tell you what is needed before beginning to hack Rock Band titles.
2 - Setting Up a System For Customs
This step tells you how to hack Wii/vWii, or install and gather the needed files for Dolphin.
3 - Preparing the Project Environment
This step explains how to use the GitLab repo software, and obtaining the songs that you want.
4 - Modifying Your Console for Customs
This step tells you how to further configure your Wii, vWii, or Dolphin, in order to more readily accept customs and downloaded DLC. An additional step is also provided for those who want songs from the Wii Rock Band discs.
5 - Packing Songs
This step teaches how to organize and pack the song files for your method of choice.
6 - Adding DLC to a Rock Band Version
This final step is split into the Rock Band version you are preparing to add DLC to. Each of the separate wiki pages tell you how to properly configure the USB Loaders USB Loader GX and WiiFlow Lite, as well as final configurations in order for Dolphin to run the game with DLC.
If you want to author your own customs, or refine existing ones, these guides will give you the knowledge and tools you need to be able to become a Rock Band hacking pro!
Note: Some of these guides are not on my GitLab wiki, and therefore may not be fully accurate or up-to-date. If unsure, please seek help in RBC Discord.
