GuitarsOnFire 0.1a

by Daid

GuitarsOnFire is a GuitarHero clone, like Guitarfun and FretsOnFire. It uses FretsOnFire compatible songs, which can be found all over the internet. Everything will be released under GPL.

In it's current state it supports playing single songs from SD card. Up to 5 players in quick play mode. With 4 guitars and 1 USB keyboard. It has no lag and all the notes are perfect on time.

Current 0.1alpha release lacks one important feature, which is the fact that you cannot fail.

-No wait to fail yet
-Sometimes (very rarely) crashes when loading a song
-With only an USB keyboard you cannot start a song, as the keyboard doesn't have a 'menu'/'+' key mapped.
-Some random tick noise at the end of a song.
