Here are some frequently asked questions and answers about adding custom songs to Guitar Hero III on PC:
Can I add custom songs to Guitar Hero III on other platforms?
No, this method only works for the PC version of Guitar Hero III. If you want to add custom songs to Guitar Hero III on other platforms, such as Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, you will need to use different tools and methods that are more complicated and risky. You can find some tutorials online, but we do not recommend them unless you know what you are doing.
Can I add more than 5 custom songs to Guitar Hero III?
Yes, you can add as many custom songs as you want to Guitar Hero III, but you will need to replace some of the original songs in the game. To do this, you will need to use a program called GHTCP (Guitar Hero Three Control Panel) that lets you edit the game files and swap songs. You can download GHTCP from here and follow the instructions in the readme file.
Can I play online with custom songs?
No, you cannot play online with custom songs. If you try to do so, you will get an error message or be disconnected from the server. This is because the game checks for song compatibility before starting an online match. To play online, you will need to restore the original songs in the game or use a backup copy of the game.
Can I share my custom songs with others?
Yes, you can share your custom songs with others who have Guitar Hero III on PC. You can upload your song files and chart files to a file hosting service, such as MediaFire or Mega, and share the link with others. You can also post your custom songs on forums or websites that are dedicated to Guitar Hero modding, such as ScoreHero or Frets On Fire. 29c81ba772
