ROCKBAND 2 FAQ
Unlocking Songs in RB2
What is the fastest way to unlock songs in RB2?

A: The fastest way is to actually Unlock songs using Cheats/Game Modifier.
Do note that when this game modifier is enable, your game will not be saved. So it's better to do it the longer way.

A: The next fastest way is to play under World Tour : Challenges.
All you have to do is to complete the basic warmup challenge of your instrument, then play on the next challenge for your instrument and a decade challenge should appear.

Keep playing those decades challenges and it will unlock many challenges that will eventually unlock ALL songs in RB2.
Decade challenges : The 60s / 70s / 80s / 90s / 00s Challenge.

5 GOLD STARS?!
I've seen many people putting up pictures with 5 GOLDEN stars? how do i get that?

A: To achieve 5 Gold stars you will have to play on Expert difficulty. While playing your song, look out for the score when you hit 5 Stars. remember it.
To get 5 gold stars with the above conditions, you will need to reach the score for 5 stars for the song, then multiply it by 1.52

For example if you need 100,000 score to get 5 Stars, to get 5 GOLD stars you will need 152,000 score.

Downloading DLC
What region of Rockband [1 and 2] should I get if i want to have DLCs?

A: Please get the Region 1 Rockband 1/2 Gamedisc if you intend to buy DLCs.


How do I go about buying DLCs?

A: Your PS3 first has to have access to the internet.
Next you need to create a US PlaystationNetwork[PSN] Account.

You can do so by creating a new user in the ps3, then sign up for a new PSN account. This time, change your country to the United States[US]
All you need to do now is enter a valid Zipcode for the state you have chosen then just fill up all the other information and create!

After having a US PSN account, you need to find ways to pump credit into the account.

Several ways to pump this money.

1. US PSN Card.
This card can be found in the US mainly in bestbuy/walmart[sometimes] etc
If you know of anyone living in the US you can ask him/her to help you with this.

US PSN card comes in values of 20USD/50USD.
[FunzCentre is bringing in these cards]

2. US Prepaid Visa Card.
Again, most likely you need a US buddy/friend/someone to help you with this.
You need to purchase a US Prepaid visa card that is able to do online purchases.

Walmart prepaid visa card is good, I was using that some time ago before.

3. Entropay
To the new people who recently created a US PSN account, please try not to use this method as it's unknown whether you can still pump in money using new entropay cards or/and new US PSN account or/and new entropay-psn account link.

Those who had linked their entropay before to their US PSN account, you should be able to still pump in money to your account.


After pumping your desired value, you just need to enter the US PSN Store [log in using the new user you created and the new PSN account you have created], then browse for Game Addons. Find for rock band downloadable content!


Exporting Rockband 1 songs to your HDD
What songs will be exported?

A: All songs EXCEPT 3 songs from the Rockband 1 gamedisc will be exported for use in future rockband games.
The 3 songs are : Paranoid, Enter Sandman and Run to the Hills.

How to export?

A: You need to have the R1 Rockband 1 Disc and R1 rockband 2[and future series] Disc.
Next you need to purchase the Rockband Export Key in the US PSN store for US$4.99

After purchasing, go into the rockband 1 game, Under Options/Extras there would be an option called Export.
Press it and wait!


Entropay Problems

What problems?
You cannot use entropay for new Entropay accounts or/and new US PSN account.

To the new people who recently created a US PSN account, please try not to use this method as it's unknown whether you can still pump in money using new entropay cards or/and new US PSN account or/and new entropay-psn account link.

Those who had linked their entropay before to their US PSN account, you should be able to still pump in money to your account.
