GuitarsOnFire 0.8

by Daid

Guitars On Fire is a Guitar Hero clone, like Guitarfun and FretsOnFire. It uses Frets On Fire compatible songs, which can be found all over the internet. Everything is 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.

It does NOT support USB harddisks yet. All the tests USB sticks and harddisks I have don't work yet, even with the latest libogc.

-Customizable scriptable stages. 3 stages included by default (GuitarsOnFire, Guitarfun, Mario)
-Lefty flip
-Load all GFX from png files on SD card
-Load drums.ogg if it exists
-'lower fret overriding'
-Sound fix when no song.ogg is found
-Gamecube controller support (Untested)

-Not showing a difficulty if there are less then 10 notes (some songs just add a single note to show up as having all difficulties)
-Added 'start' key for keyboard
-No songs message when no songs are found
-Fix scoring for sustained notes
-Remove tails for short notes
-Add neck/highway gfx
-Failing a song when playing badly
-Keyboard keymap customizing
