I was wondering the same thing.

I've been searching the Internet for any info about this, and this is the first thread I've found asking about the subject.

Either we've overlooked something simple, or we're the only ones that care.

I think there are setlists already in the game. Try playing one

I noticed that the game will occasionally display songs I do not have by the Stone Temple Pilots in green on the setlist saying RECOMMENDED.

Maybe you have to buy those and play them?

Are you talking about the "Shameless Self Promotion" achievement? :confused:

It's a separate one in the ROCK BAND GOALS tab of the goals chart, where it says you have to play a "Harmonix Recommends" setlist. It's on the same page as the goals to link your account, play in a live band, and create your character.

The goal doesn't seem to list the prerequisites. :(

hmm, don't know, but now you have me wondering. I will have to look and see the next time I am on the game

There are. Has anyone tried this? It also might require linking first. Who knows?

I have not tried any of the premade setlists in the game. I will later tonight to verify.

It may actually be a post-link feature, which would explain all the confusion. :O

I just want to point out the interesting fact its not a DLC goal... hm...

Songs are automatically recommended based on your previous ratings.. they come up as green. I'm not 100% sure but you may have to make a setlist out of them or maybe there's a way in the menu to pick them as a setlist. Going to look right now...

EDIT:

Play Now > Quickplay > Setlists > Pick one by Harmonix

I can't confirm this because I can't be bothered to play these setlists right now.

I played the "Party Favorites" pre-made setlist the other night and did not get the goal completed.

Linking your game to RockBand.com is not live yet and that is required to download recommended setlists.

Ahh, that could be it. Damn, I wish they could hurry up with getting that sorted.

Has there been any new information on how to unlock this? I've already linked my account and there's nothing about a Harmonix recommends setlist

I have:
1. linked my account
2. completed one or 2 of the preset setlists
3. downloaded a couple of "recommended" songs marked in green

and I still have not unlocked this goal

I'm guessing there will be a set list to go with the free Harmonix bands DLC that hasn't been released yet. That's the one containing the Harmonix songs removed from RB2 import.

I noticed that there are setlists in the "Play A Setlist" section, at the very top - battles and what not - but I can't play any of them because either they aren't for the drums or they have songs I don't have.

They have special icons and are sometimes labeled as battles, and have a variety of DLC usually. The last one I saw was for bands in RB3, but the DLC songs for those bands...

Has anyone tried those?

Tried the current Keys one, didn't work.

I've played songs by HMX bands and I've done the pre-made setlists from "Play a Setlist" in the main menu... no achievement.

My guess is that it'll just start unlocking at some point and Harmonix won't say what happened or why any new pre-made setlists work while the ones we have don't/didn't. They are being incredibly tight-lipped about all these bugs/errors/glitches...

Does selecting it from the My Goals screen not do anything for everyone who's downloaded a couple green "recommended" songs? If that's the case, maybe it's not implemented, especially since account linking isn't working properly.

To find recommend setlists:

1) Go to Quickplay -> Setlist
2) There will be 3 lists: Battles, Custom Setlists, Pre-Made.
3) In "Custom Setlists", scroll until you see a setlist that has "Harmonix" as the creator.
4) Press Yellow (or Y) to bring up the details. The setlist will be called a "Harmonix Recommends" one.

The only one available now is called "The Exploration Setlist" which includes a handful of DLC songs from artists who are featured on the RB3 disc. Play that and the goal should unlock.

Sweet, thanks for the info. Hopefully they'll put out more setlists in the future that i actually have the songs for

I really hope this works, i got it for christmas and tried a few of my own things and it never unlocked. I've never even noticed to click the yellow button.

It definitely works. There are now several more HMX setlists, too.
