If you love playing Guitar Hero III on your PC, but you want to spice up your song list with some custom tracks, this article will show you how to do it. You will need a program called Song List Editor, which allows you to add not only your own songs, but also songs from Frets On Fire (FOF), a free open-source music game. You will also need a chart file or a MIDI file for the guitar notes of each song you want to add. Here are the steps to follow:
Download Song List Editor from this link and extract it to a location on your PC.
Run songlist_editor.exe. The program will load a command window in the background where information about what the program is doing will be displayed.
Go to File -> Open and select your Guitar Hero III installation folder.
To add your own song, you will need an MP3 or OGG file of the song and a chart file or a MIDI file for the guitar notes. You can find thousands of chart files for songs at ScoreHero.com. Just register for free and search for the song you want. Download the chart file and save it to a location on your PC.
Use Chart2Mid2Chart.zip by Leff to convert the chart file to a MIDI file. You can download it from this link. Extract it to a location on your PC and run Chart2Mid.exe. Drag and drop the chart file onto the program window and it will generate a MIDI file in the same folder.
In Song List Editor, click Add Song and fill in the details for your song. Browse for the MP3 or OGG file and the MIDI file. You can also change the song name, artist name, album name, year, genre, difficulty levels, etc.
Click OK and your song will be added to the list. You can repeat this process for any other songs you want to add.
To add songs from Frets On Fire, you can download them from this link. Each song pack contains several songs in FOF format. Extract them to a location on your PC and use Song List Editor to add them. Just click Add FOF Songs and browse for the folder where you extracted the songs. The program will automatically detect them and add them to the list.
When you are done adding songs, click Save and then Apply Changes. The program will copy the songs to your Guitar Hero III installation folder and update the game files.
Launch Guitar Hero III and enjoy your custom songs!
Note: Adding custom songs will corrupt your save game file, so make sure you back it up before doing this. Also, some custom songs may not work properly or cause glitches in the game, so use them at your own risk.Tips and Tricks for Playing Custom Songs on Guitar Hero III
