No worries, you're totally right. If I had had more foresight I probably would've used stock DDR A as a base instead of my recent Mini theme which has all those modes already removed. Definitely going to look into restoring those modes in the future as it shouldn't be too hard, probably just tedious to make sure I don't introduce any new bugs while merging new code/assets with old.

That smaller "now playing" is much nicer. Smile Looking forward to testing this out, and hopefully you can find a partner with coding skills to enhance this project (and mini) further!

I think what you put out is great. This is super crisp and looks a lot nicer than almost every other theme I've used because of it (I think the only other one that has assets of this quality is Starlight). Removing the slant from the jacket scroll looks very nice, and in case anyone here isn't aware if you have any jackets overlapping the folder that is a Stepmania limitation and not pupsi's fault, all themes with this song select layout have that. Everything looks nice in game, and the version released is the small now playing version. Since it's single player only I would like to see a patch for the larger version, I thought that looked quite nice myself but the finished version is very good. The judgements look great, very vibrant but being behind the notes stops them from being jarring, it works out perfect. It should be noted that some of my high AA scores (like 988k) are showing up as AAA, I'm not sure why as the DDRA theme had them as AA. I'm assuming this theme supports AA+ and that's why, but I haven't played a lot of songs so I didn't see one yet. Maybe try implementing a convert scores option like Starlight has to fix this?

Not sure if was done on purpose but the gold noteskins make jumps where only one note is a hold have the non-hold note as it's normal color (so a 1/4 note left right jump where right is a hold would have left as a red arrow and right as a gold hold). I know this isn't the only note skin to do this, ITG does it and it works well, but it looks weird with a DDR style note skin. But the note skin itself is very nice, it just pops. The gold outline on the targets is a nice touch as well. The time put into these shows.

My only real complaint is that it doesn't support course mode, it's easily a 9/10 and course mode would make it 10/10.

I'm incredibly happy to hear that! Definitely validating after the time I've spent on it to hear it's up to par. And your response is also very thorough which I particularly appreciate. I forgot to share the Larger Now Playing patch at release but it's in the first post now. Also I think I may have changed that grading system by accident ages ago and forgot about it so I'm glad you bring it up; should be an easy fix. I believe I understand what you're saying with jumps- gonna see if I can mess with the metics or lua file to get that going as well. Again, thank you for your in depth reply!

Also an exciting update: I've been in touch with a few members of STARLiGHT team recently and if all goes right, I may be able to implement some of their own code after STARLiGHT TWOpointZERO releases and is open source. This would help with development and compatibility tremendously. All the more reason to look forward to the next release of STARLiGHT. Big Grin

Your BG video looks amazing, maybe you could help me to make the PLUS BG for my A20 PLUS theme.

在SM5.1中使用新的A20 minu theme里面选择专辑的封面是否可以使用BG而非老式的banner? 但奇怪的是在5.3FOXUOT中竟然是BG作为专辑封面

The larger now playing patch looks great, thanks for uploading that. For the grading system, this is what I'm talking about. 961k should not be a AAA. This happens because the stats.xml files saves what "tier" the grade is, so when you switch to another theme with different grade tiers (or in this case more grade tiers) then you wind up with this happening. But getting a new high score fixes it kind of. In the second screen shot you can see that I got a new high score so now my top score is AA+, but on the right side with the top 10 scores it shows the second score as AAA still. But that's going to happen any time the theme you switch to has a different grading scale, I don't think there is anything you can do to fix that. If I switched to the DDRA theme right now it would show a different grade than AA for that score. About the only way you could fix that would be a theme option for two different grading systems, those being with and without AA+. Then someone coming from a AA+ theme would be able to keep their scores and someone coming from a non-AA+ theme could keep theirs but there is no way I know of the outright convert what is saved in stats.xml. For this same reason, people coming over from an ITG theme will have all kinds of wonky grades.

Don't use pss:GetScore() to get the scores. Compute the score based from judgment scores and using DDR A formula. This will prevent displaying scores set via pss:SetScore(). Grades are determined based from these scores using the conditional statements,

Not sure if this is what the bigger now playing text patch did instead of showing the larger now playing text.

It's not the now playing patch, just an ugly bug regarding machinerecords that I'll fix in the next update. Dead Nice score though. 👀

No, imo there are much better ways to make/edit charts available such as arrowvortex. (though if opensource STARLiGHT code is usable in the future, explained in my previous posts, it might be implemented)

Just replace the animations of PersonalRecord to MachineRecord in the Metrics.ini file. Very Happy I just did that right now. lol

Thank you for this wonderful theme! This is one of the many i tried that i instantly like.

I noticed the option to sort by different types is not there (pressing left+right at the same time). Is it changed to different key combos or it is completely disabled?

Stupid question time... But whenever I try to hit "Scroll Lock" to check things, the game gives me these errors before crashing.

Quote
The theme element "Fonts/_Service" is missing.

ThemeManager: The redirect '/Themes/DanceDanceRevolution A20 Minus/Fonts/OptionRowService item.redir' points to the file '_service', which does not exist. Verify that this redirect is correct.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here, so a bit of help is what I need. I'm sorry for the potentially dumb question. ^^;

Note: I tried installing the theme two different ways.

First, I put it directly into the Themes folder in Games/Stepmania 5/Themes, which crashed.

Currently, I tried installing the Theme into AppData/Roaming/Stepmania 5/Themes, which also crashed.

EDIT:

I tested a song out, but when I finished, these strings of errors showed up! @_@

Quote
/Themes/DanceDanceRevolution A20 Minus/BGAnimations/ScreenEvaluation decorations/default.lua:427: references a file "/Themes/DanceDanceRevolution A20 Minus/BGAnimations/ScreenEvaluation decorations/PFC" which has multiple matches
/Themes/DanceDanceRevolution A20 Minus/BGAnimations/ScreenEvaluation decorations/PFC (doubleres).png
/Themes/DanceDanceRevolution A20 Minus/BGAnimations/ScreenEvaluation decorations/PFC.png

If someone can help figure this out, I'd be very happy. Sorry about all this.

Just updated with several bugfixes regarding multiple matches and code syntax among other things! Big thank you to Jose_Varela for many of the fixes! Apologies it's been so long for an update, life has been incredibly hectic for me lately and I would assume most the rest of us as well.
