Whammy Bar Messed Up April 10, 2007

Posted by dpcough in Xbox/ Xbox 360 General.

I have Guitar Hero II and anytime I use the Whammy Bar it takes a second for the game to respond to the input of the controller. Red Octane has responded and admitted it is faulty. Here are the steps to improve it, if not… well you guitar may need to be sent back.

We have been informed of a possible calibration issue with Guitar Hero II for the Xbox 360’s whammy bar. We believe this may stem from a feature put in place to ensure accurate scoring. Guitar Hero II features a complex control scheme that requires precise calibration between the game and the guitar. We are currently investigating the situation further; however, if you are experiencing these issues, we recommend that you try the following steps:

1. Turn off the power to your game console
2. Make sure the whammy bar is moved away from the body of the guitar and not depressed
3. Make sure the guitar is securely connected to your console
4. Then turn the console’s power back on
5. Load the Guitar Hero II game and begin playing

If the above steps do not resolve your problem, please feel free to contact our customer service department using the following information:
