If you want to play Rocksmith 2014 without the original RealTone cable, you might be interested in a tool called RocksmithNoCableLauncher. This is a launcher for the game that allows you to use any audio interface as an input device, instead of the official cable. You can also play multiplayer with different input devices for each player.
In this article, we will show you how to download, install and configure RocksmithNoCableLauncher, and how to activate multiplayer mode. We will also provide some tips and troubleshooting advice for common issues.
Downloading and Installing RocksmithNoCableLauncher
RocksmithNoCableLauncher is a free and open-source tool developed by Maxx53 on GitHub[^1^]. You can download the latest version from the releases page[^2^]. The file name is NoCableLauncher-m-binary.rar. You will need a program like WinRAR or 7-Zip to extract the files.
Once you have extracted the files, you can copy them to any folder you like. You don't need to put them in the same folder as Rocksmith 2014. However, if you have a Steam-licensed version of the game, you will need to check the \"Steam game\" box in the settings window later.
To configure RocksmithNoCableLauncher, you need to run the EditSettings.bat file. This will open a friendly user interface where you can adjust various settings.
The first thing you need to do is select the audio device that is connected to your guitar. You can use the \"Device\" combobox to choose from a list of active input devices in your system. If your device is not in the list, you can check the \"Manual\" box and enter the VID and PID values manually. You can find these values in the Device Manager.
If you want to use the default non-USB input device, such as an integrated microphone input, you can set both VID and PID as \"0000\". However, this might result in poor sound quality and latency issues.
Next, you need to browse for the game executable file by pressing the \"...\" button. If you have a Steam-licensed version of Rocksmith 2014, you don't need to do this. Just check the \"Steam game\" box and RocksmithNoCableLauncher will automatically find the game.
If you want to play multiplayer, you need to check the \"Enable Multiplayer\" box and select different input devices for Player 1 and Player 2. Otherwise, multiplayer will not work.
Once you are done with the settings, press \"OK\" to save them and close the window. You can also press \"Cancel\" to close the window without saving.
Playing Rocksmith 2014 with RocksmithNoCableLauncher
To play Rocksmith 2014 with RocksmithNoCableLauncher, you need to run the NoCableLauncher.exe file. This will launch the game with your chosen settings.
If you want to play multiplayer, you need to select \"Multiplayer\" from the game menu and press Ctrl+M (global hotkey) to activate Player 2. You can also press Ctrl+M again to deactivate Player 2.
Tips and Troubleshooting
Here are some tips and troubleshooting advice for using RocksmithNoCableLauncher:
Make sure your audio device is set to 16 bit, 48000 Hz output in the Control Panel -> Sound -> Recording -> Properties -> Advanced[^3^]. This might solve some sound issues and improve performance.
If you experience latency or crackling noises, try lowering the audio buffer size in Rocksmith 2014's settings menu. You can also try disabling any effects or enhancements on your audio device.
If you have any problems with Steam or Uplay authentication, try running RocksmithNoCableLauncher as administrator.
