You will need to edit the ddr_groove_data.lua file in the Scripts folder and find Lesson by DJ.

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?

I don't think so bud, I could do it but as I said on Github, this is an edit from Inori's theme, I didn't make this theme from zero, so I don't know how exactly do it. Try using another controller for it. In my case, I use my PS4 controller via Bluetooth.

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.

I know! it is too annoying right? Sad It happens due the script "ddr_groove_data.lua". That script has the difficulties of songs that are in DDR AC and gives the exactly value. I still trying to find a conditional to make the GrooveRadar compatible with customs difficulties and edits of DDR songs.

One thing I'm wondering, is there a way to turn down (or mute) the "Full Combo" 'laser beam' noise? ^^; Somehow it seems a bit louder in this theme, and I couldn't quite seem to find the sound file in the files.

Is possible to recreate the A3 BGA using animations and graphics instead of bg video?

You can always find the appropriate sound effect and put it through a simple audio editor like Audacity and lower the volume that way.

Approximately nobody asked for this song to be included. Least popular decision by the Japanese since Nintendo released the Wii U.

The original game uses a bg video so it doesn't really matter to recreate it. I don't think there's enough effects to be able to recreate the bga well anyways.

If I can find which sound file it is, I think I dug through all of them. But I can check them again. need to download Audacity...

i would love that, but i don't have the knowledge or time to do it, i tried to do a sort of loop with a section that i found in a video, but it just doesn't fell right, so we'll go with a image for now.

I booted the theme up, and several elements were missing, and most of the screen was black aside from text and arrows. Playing on Outfox on a mac. Anyone know what's going on?

It's not possible at all. Only static BG for now.

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.

Hi, I have an l-tek pad too. I disabled the speed function by deleting a few lines on the metrics.ini file (in the DDR A3 theme folder):

- On the metrics.ini file: delete/comment the following lines:
Line 1971: CodeSpeedUp="MenuRight"
Line 1972: CodeSpeedDown="MenuLeft"

- On line 1970: delete 'SpeedUp, SpeedDown'

Good luck!

Curilang isn't necessarily advertising it in the first post but he is updating this theme regularly, so keep an eye on the github page guys. There are added animations, sound effects, and even requested features added now (thanks so much for those, too!).


Edit: There seems to be a bug with the dancers/stages causing scripted videos to not pillarbox properly with the dancer/stage behind the video and visible on the sides. Other 4:3 videos that are one video rather than a script (like KISEKI or Baby's Tears SN2) will properly pillarbox. I'm not sure if it's the theme itself or the way the dancers/stages are programmed.


Oh and I noticed that the cut offs for grades are different from A20. Like 890k is awarding A+ instead off AA-. 950k is awarding AA instead of AA+. I can't find anything saying this was changed for A3.

You mean 5.0.12, right?

The characters go in the Characters folder that is created by default in Stepmania when you install it. The stages, just unzip that to the Stepmania folder where Characters, Songs, Themes, etc. are.

Go to Sounds and search ScreenGameplay ComboSplash.

It is the way that the system is programmed. I'll fix it but probably with songs like ITG that has BGChanges by default you might not see DanceStages.

Kinda weird, it has the same score system that DDR A20 theme by Wyvern-D. Probably that happens because I made the code more optimized.

Download the DanceStages project by Encisso (link in first post) and put both folders (Characters and DanceStages) in StepMania folder. Here it is an example (Click here)

"Wish I could change my username"
I believe the Dancers/Stages system also ignores the offsets for videos and plays them at beat 0 anyway (if the video is displayed on a stage, that is). A solution I made for this is to use a video editing program to offset the video so that it is more on sync with the music. Or edit the simfile's audio and beat 0 BPM to put the video on sync (usually by adding or deleting milliseconds of measure 0 silence). However, the latter approach often has me insert measure 0 BPMs that are either much higher or much lower than the song's actual starting BPM.

As for the grade score cut-offs, it just might be a StepMania limitation as it still relies on Dance Points/grade percentages. I have gotten borderline low 990,000 scores before and only gotten AA+ instead of AAA for that exact reason.

By the way the pack has been updated so this might give some issues to new users. I haven’t tried it myself but just saying if anyone wants to test it

It happens because one video is not the same thing as one texture, with a video you can't put: "Start at second 2 with the beginning of the video".
