Totally metal hack allows custom Guitar Hero II songs


1:37 PM on 01.18.2007



If there's anything more metal than breaking multiple copyright laws at the same time, I've yet to see it in my lifetime.

The folks over at the Scorehero forums are at it again, hacking their way through Guitar Hero II. This time, they've managed to replace songs found in the game with custom songs, new note charts and all. A huge list of custom songs (including tunes by Dragonforce, Metallica, Journey, and more) can be found in this thread.

While the original poster in the "How-To" thread claims the process is idiot-proof, I beg to differ. It requires eight separate freeware program downloads, involves a 12-step process that makes my head hurt just looking at it. You'll also need a PlayStation 2 modified to play "backups." Eye of newt, virgin's blood, and horn of unicorn are optional.

On the other hand, having an entirely new set of songs to wail on should appeal to anyone who has spent countless hours mastering the rainbow frets and is itching for something new to conquer.
