I know it's been documented that RBN songs won't show in Mystery Setlists, but they also never show up in Make a Setlists if you choose the Random Song option. I had never seen it choose an RBN song at random, so I decided to test it.
I have alot of RBN songs, and I went into the 8 song Make a Setlist, and had it choose 8 random songs over and over for about 10 minutes and it never chose an RBN song. It looks like the only way to play an RBN song in Tour Mode is to choose it.
If you go into Quickplay and have it choose a Random Song, it will pick RBN songs with no problem.
I don't know why the RBN songs are not chosen at random in Tour. Hopefullly it is just an oversight by HMX and not purposely done. What would be the reason?
This isn't that big of a deal now. We can play Quickplay instead of Tour. Our band has done every gig, and we were only playing in Tour to get more fans. I would hope that Rock Band 3 will integrate the RBN songs into the Tour so they will at least come up if you chose the Random Song option, but I would really like them to show up in Mystery Setlists if possible.
