Rockband user updating
Failed players continuously drag the band's Band Meter down until they are saved.
If the player is not saved before the Band Meter reaches the bottom, the band fails the song.
The Xbox 360 version was released in Europe on May 23, 2008 while the Play Station 3, Play Station 2, and Wii versions were released on September 12, 2008.
All four ports of the game were released in Australia on November 7, 2008.
Overdrive can be used to activate score multipliers, which vary based on a player's note streak.
Players can deploy Overdrive independently of each other, as well as collect additional Overdrive while it is deployed and draining.
Along the top of the screen is the vocals display, which scrolls horizontally, similar to Karaoke Revolution.
Each instrument is represented by a different interface: bass guitar (right), drums (middle), lead guitar (left), vocals (top).The remainder of the screen is used to display the band's virtual characters as they perform in concert.During cooperative play as a band, all players earn points towards a common score, though score multipliers and "Overdrive" are tracked separately for each player.Once the Energy Meter is filled halfway, players can deploy their Overdrive, resulting in the "Band Meter" (which tracks how well each player is doing) changing more dramatically.This allows players to strategically use Overdrive to raise the Band Meter and pass portions of a song they otherwise might have failed.
