I'm building Guitar Hero for the computer with nothing but Javascript. Does anyone have any ideas for songs I should put on it, any extra features that would be better than the original GH, and any tips?

In return, I'll trade you my copy of Battletoads for help:

Nah seriously. I'm going to show this game to a few colleges this summer. I want it to be sem-serious.

Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden

Also I would add an open strum feature.

Even more truth spoken here.

i kinda wish we all had a penis and vagina instead of buttholes

i mean no offense to buttholes and poop or anything

Open strum feature sounds plausible. Does a palm muting option make sense too? I was thinking about going a bit advanced too and adding in equalizers so you can adjust amp tone.

I think I'm getting obsessed with this project.

I don't think palm muting would work. I mean your already pressing a button to strum. How would you mute it? (assuming your using the keyboard to play)

That sounds cool.

Agreed with the open strum feature, that really annoyed me about guitar hero.

As for songs:
Aces High - Iron Maiden
Leper Messiah - Metallica
Lucretia - Megadeth
Fatal Tragedy - Dream Theater

Well, I could always add an extra "x" button, just like how you read guitar tab palm mutes?

You might as well put it in then. I think if your going to put that in then you need a separate button for turning off and on a pedal and possibly adding wah into your sound. That would be awesome.

I think I'm going to cap the song list at about thirty. Too much and it's over the top.

What genres/subgenres are you putting in? Are you going to put in only mainstream music?

(And to the underlined part) you have spoken utter blasphemy here.

No way. Definitely different things, to show off my coding skills in the game. Sticking too a genre that is mainly chords doesn't show the complex soloing structures, vice versa.

Classic Rock, Punk Rock, Ska, Rockabilly, Grunge, Pop, Emo, Hardcore, etc etc

Seriously, some SRV or B.B. King stuff. I'm sick of all those annoyingly fast and ridiculous runs they have in Guitar Hero.
Peace.
