"Doing Stuff..."

Last updated: 2012-06-17 02:34pm
I am making my first theme from scratch for SM5A1a. I do not have a lot done yet but, I believe I have the general concept now after messing around a bit with theming. I am still not an expert but, at least I have a basic idea of what I am doing. I welcome any and all help that anyone can supply/give. I already have the LUA info link so, do not bother posting this please. I also set the output log as well. The only part I really need help with is the SM LUA. I am somewhat new to LUA myself. I have read some of the syntax over but not everything. I have the basic understanding of how to access the classes within SM (from the LUA thing but, I do not know what everything does yet or how to properly use them all.) If I post any questions, please help me answer them if you have any available information. Anyway, I will move on to the theme now.

The basic concept is pretty much this...

This is a pixel art I drew of a custom ddr machine I came up with. It's no where near good quality. I prefer old school art rather than the newer stuff. (pixel art/sprites/etc) Most likely, this is as good as it will get for theme graphics wise. Sorry if you are disappointed...

Anyway, I need a lot to do so, I will try to get back to work. I will edit this post when I have questions and whatnot. Once answered, I will add them to a solved list in this post. (or something similar) Credit will be given for whomever helps me out/answers my questions/etc.

QUESTIONS

1: How do you use the effectclock("Beat") for a actor to go to a specific song's BPM on the wheel selection?
2: How do you move the profile names on the bottom? (I want to move player 2's name to the left a bit.)
3: How would I make a custom groove radar like SM5 has it? I want a 100px bar for both players from the stepfile.

DOWNLOADS

I will temp host it on my website. You can get it here:

There's some metric like "WheelHighlightCommand". Add "effectclock,'beat';" to that to get the highlight to flash.

Oh thank you so much! You do not know how much your post means to me. (It answered a lot of questions I had. Not everything but, still.) When I made my theme, I basically remove all the keys/attributes in the metrics.ini except the tags. (I wanted to learn what happens and what not.) I had no idea the metrics file also contributed a lot to how the theme works as well. I did seem to find the one you were referring to and it works now. Thanks for the help. Now all I need to do now is read over the fallback/default metrics.ini for a while and I am sure I will have less questions. Smile

edit: I will work more on this tomorrow.

edit: I learned a bit more and I am slowly adding more and more. I will show you a new screenshot real quick. I managed to move the banner where I want it. I got a lot more to add though. Confused I will get there eventually though. Smile

edit: more/slow progress...

http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/2605/20120229002957.jpg

edit: Storm a coming... I'll work more on this tomorrow.

edit: I seemed to learn a few things here and there. I still have a long road to go down but, I will get there eventually.

edit: I am sorry for not working on this much. I have been busy. I have taken some time to rethink my theme over. I think I am going to rename the theme eventually but for now, I am going to leave it the same for now. I did manage to make/add a new font. (work in progress still) It looks okay but I still have a lot to edit...

edit: I am sorry for not working on this lately... I have been doing other things. I am currently working more on this again. I am experimenting with the title screen and re-editing the select music screen at the moment. I found a bug in my theme as well. It crashes on the screen evaluation. I need to figure out that later on. I will show some new screenshots in a bit.

edit: Hm... The options screen isn't working either... (crash) I'll check that out later as well...

edit: I seemed to temp fix the screen evaluation screen. (Nothing but my ddr machine for now.) Let me see if I can solve the options screen bug...

edit: I found the problem and temp fixed it. I probably have to change it later but for now, its using fallback. Smile

edit: Here is a experimental concept for the new title screen. I have to edit the images later but, you get the idea...

edit: I wanted to redo the select music screen... I still need to fix the font and move the text around yet. I think it looks better IMO.

http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/7127/20120515034733.png

edit: It's getting late... I will try to work more on this tomorrow. Smile

edit: I somehow got the attributes mixed up on the net room screen but I fixed that and now it works fine. I think I want to fix my font now... I cannot read it at all...

edit: Finally fixed the font. It's no longer a digital look but, I had to change it because it was unreadable... : For now, this will work. I'll screenshot the options screen to give you the idea.

edit: Here you go.

edit: I found out where to modify the gameplay screen so I thought I'd work on that some. I think it looks okay thusfar... I still need to edit more of the metrics ini though... :

http://img440.imageshack.us/img440/6475/20120516033623.png

edit: I wanted to check over my metrics.ini again so I started editing it a bit. (removing non needed lines and whatnot) Although, I have to go to bed now. It's getting late... I will continue more tomorrow. :

edit: More slow progress...

edit: Two new screenshots. Smile

http://img685.imageshack.us/img685/672/20120519024836.jpg

edit: Might as well show a new screenshot.

http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/8726/20120522020358.jpg

edit: I have been sick so I have not got much done sorry... But, here is a new screenshot at least...

http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/3246/20120601204428.jpg

edit: I FINALLY fixed the darn music wheel... I cannot use grades yet though because it does not seem to be working right yet... :\ I also fixed minor things here and there as well. I will post 0.3.7...

edit: new screenshot!

http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/6894/20120608201334.jpg

edit: another screenshot. I wanted to work on the evaluation screen a bit among other things as well. Smile

I have now made it available to download. I currently only have version 0.1.8 (Beta). I only recommend downloading this if you want to see the general idea/want to help me with the theme. I do not recommend this to use unless you know what you are doing. Please check the first post for the download link. (Near Bottom. If the link does not work, please let me know so I can host it somewhere else.)

edit: well, I will be nice and link it in this post too.
