SPECIAL THANKS TO: KENP, Inorizushi, Wyvern-D, Midflight Digital = For sharing their themes to the public.

Thanks to:
SchneiderAFX = He made the most of the Graphics.
Encisso0720 = 3D characters system and supporting me every time.
Jose_Varela = 3D characters system.
Faye Scarlet = For sharing me some codes as suggesting.
Yuisin = For sharing me some advices and using my theme in his videos.
MontyTheDancer = BGM music.
EuvoSound = Some animations.
Luza94 = Improvements with graphics.

Hi guys, this is Curilang again. Let me introduce this DDR A3 theme (V.1.0) for SM 5.0.12, 5.1b2 and OUTFOX.

DON'T USE THIS IN PUBLIC PLACES.
This theme is for Home use and computers, not personal arcade cabinets. If you use this theme in personal arcade cabinets, use a keyboard to have more control on it.

About 3D Characters: I'm using NEXT PHASE (or Super Phase) support as the version of the project on Enciso's Github.

Let's thank Encisso0720 for re-uploading NextPhase support and for his hard work!

About the theme:
° The theme has custom graphics, taken from YouTube and upscaled, thanks a lot to SchneiderAFX.
° Now the theme is in 480 resolution (it doesn't affect HD graphics) now you can play MOD songs in their original resolution.
° Some bugs were fixed.
° GOLD and BLUE version, blue version was made with custom colors. Go to ThemeOptions to select your favorite version.
° I used some graphics and sounds from DDR A20 PLUS, it is not a bug.
° Region.lua won't be neccesary. If you want it I made another one.
° In SelectLevel you only can use MenuLeft and MenuRight buttons to change the level. If you press MenuUp or MenuDown, you will back to SelectMusic.
° To activate PlayerOptions you have to press the "/" button or "-" button, or your dedicated button.
° HIDDEN+,SUDDEN+: You can move the Hidden/Sudden+ with MenuUp and MenuDown buttons.
° SpeedChange during Gameplay: You can increase or decrease the Speed with MenuLeft and MenuRight buttons.
° 3D Characters: Characters will return to OFF when you close the game or go to TitleMenu screen. (I'll fix it)
° Arcade Group, You will have the order of the songs as the arcade. (Explanation in Repository)

The theme now has 3 systems:
° BACKGROUND: You will have the original StepMania system, with the song's background.
° DanceStages: 3D characters with NOVEMBER UPDATE support.
° SNCharacters: SNCharacters system.

Unknown issues:
SM 5.0.12/5.1b2 = Crashes.
OUTFOX = Scoring is not the same as SM 5.0.12/5.1b2. The Grade light in SelectMusic doesn't work correctly. Probably crashes. Speed is in CMOD.

INSTRUCTIONS:

For having a good experience do the following steps:

1) Go to Stepmania options/"CONFIG KEY/JOY MAPPINGS" and please configure the "Menu" buttons [MenuLeft,MenuRight,MenuUp,MenuDown] and normal buttons.
2) Go to Stepmania options/"INPUT OPTIONS"/"MENU BUTTONS" and turn it to OnlyDedicatedButtons.
3) If you have too many crashes in the game, go to StepMania options/"GRAPHICS/SOUND OPTIONS"/"KEEP TEXTURES IN MEMORY" and turn it to off. With this you won't have crashes but the time between screens will increase about 3/6 more seconds in waiting time.

Any doubt or suggestion, let me know!.

Enjoy the theme!

Awesome I’m definitely downloading this when I get home.

So for characters/stages, I have Next Phase installed. Should I back that up and install what is in GitHub to get characters/stages to work then? I’m assuming Next Phase will just return a black background in gameplay with your theme?

Review time!

This theme rocks. For being so early it's very well put together and really seems to support every modern version of SM5. While unsupported, I used it on 5.1-new and had zero issues. The issues that existed in the A20 theme with 5.1-new seem to all be fixed with this theme, which is great. I've been messing with it for about an hour with no issues at all so far. It looks nice, performs nice, and plays nice. For all these assets being ripped out of line out footage and cleaned up, they look damn nice. The only thing that is noticeably not an official asset is the background since it moves in the arcade. I'm sure this will be improved with updates but for a first release this close to the release of the arcade game, this is so impressive.

For anyone who was using Next Phase dancers/stages, I recommend putting those into a .zip file so you don't lose them for when you go back to any theme you've modified to support them. All Next Phase stuff just gives a black screen in game play, but the November Update works as brilliantly as it ever did. Scrap Rabbit's Classic Character pack also works with the November Update, so if you like using the 3rdMIX and 4thMIX characters you can add it in there. It's kind of inconsequential going back to the November Update for me since I use (3rd) Devil Zukin and [HP] Emergence 99% of the time anyway.

So yeah, it's definitely worth using. It's nice looking and a very fresh look after a few years of A20 based themes and STARLiGHT. This will be my daily theme for DDR stuff for a while. I'm looking forward to seeing the progress that you guys make with this.

Oh and since the first post asks for suggestions, I have two.
1) Can we get a toggle for the judgement bounce? I know it's accurate to the arcade right now, but with faster sequences I find it distracting.
2) Can we get a toggle to turn off the menu music while on the song select screen (like when changing folders) and the results screen? It's nice when streaming or recording to not have to talk over the music.

On your own time, no rush please.

Yes, as I said, I won't redistribute nothing about Next Phase, so please get back to November Update.

This theme is a blessing from god! I love how it's accurate to the arcade version of A3 and it's fun.

Thank you Curilang! Green Grin

BlushingHey Curling, curious but would you be able to make it so that we can navigate the menus and song selection with our dance pads in regards to playing on OutFox? On 5.0.12 the speed function doesn't work so probably never knew about it. I know you have it a certain way and that's a-ok. But having to switch from dance pad to keyboard just to change songs is a tiiny bit annoying. Do you think you could maybe add an option under setting for those that want to be able to navigate everything purely by their dance pad. As it is right now we need to have dedicated menu buttons which makes sense, but if you switch the setting to game pad it lets you navigate the menus, song selection ect via entirely your game pad the only thing that happens is the left and right arrow when playing the game will cause the notes to increase in speed.Blushing

No worries if it's something you don't wanna do, was just curious is all.

I’ve see. stuff about controlling SM with a dance pad a few times over the past few days between here and Reddit, am I the only one that just uses the keyboard in the same manner I would use the buttons on an arcade cabinet? Everyone else seems to want to control it with the pad but that’s so cumbersome.

For me it's just more immersive since my l-tek has pretty much all I need on it to navigate. That's pretty much it. Nothing wrong with options.

Thanks for making this so quickly.

How do you get the BPM display on the gameplay screen like Yuisin has? I've seen a post about it before but I can't find it.

It might be useful to make this a feature that can be toggled in the menu.

You can actually do a BPM display! On the title screen, scroll down to "Options", then go to "Theme Options", you can change between name display and BPM display there.

Nice! Now my next question is can we get the groove radar to show values over 100? I didn't see an option for it.
(or can someone tell me how to do it)

Edit: It seems like the groove radar is bugged for additional difficulties for Lesson by DJ? It takes the numerical values from the last chart scrolled from and displays a larger version of the actual groove radar. I haven't seen this with any other song. This song is not in a DDR folder.
