FoFiX

FoFiX

FoFiX is a Frets on Fire fork with plenty of features, customizable themes and options. The aim of the game is to play guitar with the keyboard or instrument controllers as accurately as possible.

FoFiX tries to resemble Guitar Hero and Rock Band to a greater extent than most other modifications while still maintaining some of Frets on Fire' original aspects. Play guitar, bass or drums along with your favorite songs on your computer using either your keyboard or instruments. You can use your Guitar Hero or Rock Band instrument controllers.

Separated audio tracks will mute when you fail to hit or sustain the required notes correctly to simulate a real concert-playing experience.
