VR0 presents:
DDR A20 theme for SM 3.9+ REDUX and AMX.

SM 5 users: use the WYVERN-D's SM 5 theme instead. (PW: A Brighter Day (Double EXPERT) scored to 995830 Supernova2 points [Note: in bold is a PW])

Versions:
AC: MDX:J:y:A:2019100800
Theme: 2.3
DDR SELECTION IS COMMING...

DOWNLOAD FROM MEGA
Theme
ARROW SKIN pack

Songs:
Splitted ACE FOR ACES
Splitted CHAOS (Terror-tech Mix)
愛言葉 -ai kotoba- (PW: DECO*27)

Req.:
* SM 3.9+ REDUX or AMX (not recommended 3.9 standard due to have some bugs that aren't presents on 3.9+ REDUX/AMX)

Install process:
* Extract this archive onto "(3.9+ or AMX program)" folder. Announcers, arrow skins and themes are included and automatically installed onto the respective folders.
* If you install a new version of the theme, delete the older theme first.
* For uninstall, simply delete it.

Music Wheel sort:
* GENRE: sort the songs by genre/origin game/events
* SERIES FOLDER: sort the songs by folder
* ABC: sort the songs alphabetically (Due to Stepmania limitations, is sorted by number, A-Z (use translit title), other language and graphic characters)
* BPM: sort the songs by BPM
* DIFFICULTY: sort the songs by difficulty (due to 3.9 limitations, is splitted to BASIC, DIFFICULT, EXPERT and CHALLENGE)
* CLEAR RANK: sort the songs by clear rank (ALL PERFECT/MARVELOUS: Req. PFC or MFC; NO DATA: new or failed songs or cleared songs with <50% DP on EX SCORE.

Known issues:
Theme:
* Don't disable CAUTION display or you have troubles.
* All themes use SN2 score. SM 3.9 REDUX and AMX is required. You have troubles if you change to other score systems.
* To preserve the EX SCORE display like an arcade, keep it on DANCE POINTS.
* PRAY FOR ALL message is used on tohokuEVOLVED only.
* The DANGER filter cover SINGLE (to half screen). Due to a bug, don't cover all screen on DOUBLE.
* The username is not implemented on gameplay due to the limitations and due to the difficulties that change position on REVERSE mod.
* COURSE MODE is in RC state.

Songs:
* Splitted songs (as ACE FOR ACES or as CHAOS (TERROR-TECH MIX) CHALLENGE) use BPM splitted across difficulties. Grab it (link on the DOWNLOAD section) if you cannot split difficulties or if you use SM 3.9 standard. Splitted songs work on all 3.9 themes.
* A bug is detected on splitted CHAOS Terror-Tech Mix outside CHALLENGE charts that the EXTRA SAVIOR transitions didn't appear. Rename the original charts' folder to CHAOS Terror-Tech Mix (NORMAL).
* 愛言葉 now have BG and scripted lyrics. Grab it (link on the DOWNLOAD section).

Change languages:
Select any pack, copy all content on the folder pack and paste it on your theme (outside folder pack).
Japanese: japanese UI. This theme has installed by default.
Korean: Korean UI, but use english on options' description and japanese as base.
English: English UI. To preserve the song display like an arcade, keep it on NATIVE LANGUAGE.

Arrow Skins (included as separated pack):
*CLASSIC (2ndMIX internally)
*NORMAL (not prefixed)
*CYBER
*X
*All on vivid, flat, note and rainbow. (Note: NORMAL-vivid is the default arrow skin and is named default internally)

Fire7Fox8 - for modding my DDR A theme.
ME - for Graphics and SM 3.9+ REDUX convertion.
All DDR A and A20 theme for SM5 staff (Jousway, dbk2, hypnoticmarten77, luis_tatsuya, KENP and the ZIV community)

* DO NOT REMOVE ANY IDENTIFIERS THAT THIS IS A STEPMANIA THEME.
* Just don't treat this like you have the actual game and everything will be fine. This includes making an arcade accurate versions with all the songs.

It's possible, but enter to gameplay instead of return to song list, due to old 3.9 engine (Holding START or hitting START twice).

In stepmania.ini:
[Options]
ArcadeOptionsNavigation=0

Switch this to 1.

There's two ways (technically three) of going about this.
1: Custom Music Wheel and Select Music Screen

2a: Hijack all inputs from the built in input handling on select music using input redirection and use various commands and if statements to have the game habdle things how it should be. (Clean method without custom screens)

2b: Set up an input handler on select music and utilize twopartselect to prevent the game from moving on to stage info when the start button is pressed (How I currently have the options menu popping up on my DDR X theme.

I've been doing like 2a in all my themes eversince but i treat all assets of player and sort options as music select subscreens instead of having them made separately, hence, difficulty and player options textures can pass below the song info textures in music select as seen in my DDR A theme.
More actions. Less talks.

If you dont mind me asking, how do you handle opening and closing sections and having the game transition to stage info cleanly?

I know how to open a section but no idea how to close it and I'm unable to get a clean transition using screen messages

I made recorded videos of each stage minus the jacket, bottom side text and the score frame/text for Stage Info screen. You need to edit the images inside the arc files to blank for recording use. The same also I did for How To Play video.

And for the answer, I used Sony Vegas(for getting the time tween distance/delay between animation)/PShop(for getting the texture coordinate and distance) to get their animation.

The shutter "door" textures (blue, red, pink, gray) should be put inside a sprite and call them using conditional statements.

I meant for the handling to transition to stage info, not the animations but that helps too I guess

You do it during Music Select tween out before the next screen via lua (or when you broadcast the NextScreen to Stage Info)

The delivery of the statement was cold, but the idea is accurate. This is a 3.9+ Redux theme. Converting it to SM5 would be a very intensive process as it would require a complete rebuild from scratch. It would be better to update the A theme for SM5, which has been done (look in the DDR A SM5 thread, it might be in one of the A20 videos though).
