Guitars On Fire is a Guitar Hero clone, like Guitarfun and FretsOnFire. It uses Frets On Fire compatible songs, which can be found all over the internet. Everything is released under GPL.


In it's current state it supports playing single songs from SD card. Up to 5 players in quick play mode. With 4 guitars and 1 USB keyboard. It has no lag and all the notes are perfect on time.

It does NOT support USB harddisks yet. All the tests USB sticks and harddisks I have don't work yet, even with the latest libogc.


Version 0.8

ToDo list for 1.0

As I did with 0.8 release I'll keep track of what changes I'm planning to do for the next version. This is a 'for sure' list, everything on this list has to be working before version 1.0 gets released. But more things could be done.

After some testruns with reallife testsubjects:

  • Main menu
    • Televisions crop because of the black around the menu and thus resize the screen
  • Playerselection:
    • Show title and artist of selected song
    • Make the loading text a little larger
  • Ingame:
    • When playing with 5 players gauges overlay on other gauges
    • When playing with 4 players the hitbuttons should be lowered (showY)
    • Red and blue are a little difficult to see on the red surface
    • The arrow of the quality gauge is a little difficult to spot when playing with more than 2 players

-- Thanks to Pyro and 3 others.

Included songs


This is my personal wishlist long term wishlist. If you have a wish, then add it on the talk page.

  • More gamemodes
    • Coop (Single song, Gig)
    • 5 player versus (Single song and Gig mode)
    • 2 vs 2 versus (Single song and Gig mode)
    • Last man standing (Playing song after song until everyone but 1 has failed)
  • Reading songs from USB drives and (CDs?) DVDs

Low priority

  • Support for 2 USB keyboards, I think it's possible, but requires hacking of Libwiikeyboard library.
  • Highscore lists
  • Online play


With version v.08 of GuitarsOnFire there was a gfx folder which allows you to change the look of some of the parts of the game
