    Weird that Beatles Rock Band came out in Europe first and before the Europe version of Rock Band 2.

    Anyone care or have you like me already played the USA version to death?

    I wouldn't mind knowing what the instruments are like, the first games Wii ones were awful. Ditto with The Beatles one, so much so I returned them and got my refund. Hofner bass was pretty though.

    If this release supports SDHC, then hopefully RawkSD will get updated to support it. If it does, you can import Rock Band 1 as DLC for this release.

    Cheers for the reply quepaso! I got the latest version of RAWK and didn't realise you needed to have an sdhc card to card to use RAWKSD as im only using a 2gb sd card (with 4.2 softmod on)??? I've got the rawk sd pc app installed and have exported about 6 or 7 different GH and RB game tracks with mixed pal/ntsc formats and exported tracks using it. Your saying these wont currently work together on my pal wii using Rawk??

    Also, is it possible to run rawk ANOTHER WAY apart from installing CIOScorp?

    It works on normal SD cards, but why bother since you can have it on a single large SDHC card? And i dont know myself about rawkSD, since i have a Wiikey modchip and would like to avoid installing cioscorp, but i havent tried it due to no SDHC support yet.

    I immediately had to revise my official GH Les Paul when I got it. It responded bad when strumming fast. I sticked several layers of black tape on the bottom of the strumbar. After that I was much happier with it. Still I think my guitar could be better. In fact I believe that the instrument's flaws keeps me from getting a perfect on the harder difficulties.

    It kept annoying me so much that I decided to buy a real Les Paul (a clone) and just play the real thing. [​IMG]

    Except this person doesn't know that Rock Band 2 on Wii didn't support ANY type of SDHC cards, and the ones who did the 4gb trick had to buy this one.

    The entire point of posting in this thread, was to see if SDHC support has been added to the PAL release, as it should have been, since Beatles Rock Band supports it and its already out. FFS man.

    My query actually wasn't really to do with the issue of SDHC. I was merely trying to find out the following:

    I have exported about 6 or 7 different GH and RB game tracks with mixed pal/ntsc formats and exported tracks using it.

    1. Will these work together on my pal wii using Rawk OR using any other in-game method?? Will it play both regions of exported tracks mixed together on one sd card?
    2. Is it possible to run rawk ANOTHER WAY apart from installing CIOScorp?
    3. Whats the 4gb trick all about? Do you mean swapping sd cards over after game has loaded? If not can you point me in the right direction?
    4. Is the 4gb SD card pic shown in this thread higly recommended amongst rawk users?
    5. I currently play ntsc rockband 2 via configurable usb loader and it works fine. I have heard that there are issues when trying to play a backup copys of the NTSC disk. Does anyone know if the PAL version will work via the backup disk?


    Does anyone else have any knowledge on this?

    Thanks to all who have previously replied to my queries! [​IMG]

    Yeah we've had it forever....

    HMX and EA have been holding out on us like they have been with the RB2 instruments. The original release was December, then April, Then June and FINALLY October 9th almost a year after the games original release in the US (I think)

    Thx for the confirmation [​IMG].
    Sad for the SDHC no support ... moreover, don't know if SD mode DLC content issues have been fixed with latest cIOSes (wanin rev14 or hermes), hope they are ...
    Does anyone know if RawkSD (will) support this release ?

    Thats a good question. I have played the US release to death via USB loader because I just couldnt get it to work on disc via my wiikey, so could never get Rawk SD to work either.
    So only reason really to care that the pal release is out is, does it work with Rawk SD? or do we have to wait for it to be updated? I will try it myself once I get home and get this DL but anyone tried it already?
