First and foremost, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!!
I love it! Runs pretty smoothly.

Secondly, I think I may have found a bug..

Here, it says that CHOCOLATE PHILOSOPHY is my 3rd Stage.
But, on the results screen:
http://i.imgur.com/zw1oZS6.jpg
It says 4th stage..Also, when the scoring isn't set to percentage, the commas appear as question marks.

Either way, thanks again!

Thanks you for your comments, well I am pretty sure, are you using the Beta 2a?? Because the Theme works perfectly on Beta 1a, I have already tested on others versions...

Why I did this? Because, I am waiting to Stepmania 5 get (I hope) the final version soon because when I make a Theme appears a new Version of SM5 and some stuffs maybe doesn't work... but, In a moment I want to update my 3 Themes (includes SIMPLY ARROW) to the latest (stable) version of SM5, the Beta 1a is already a little old, but I like it a lot.

Also, the Theme was made exclusive for uses Percentage Score, thats why with Normal Score appears the "dots" as a marker "?".

Thanks again, anyway, Thats "bugs" are just for difference of Versions, I will waiting a little more until I see a new and/or stable version of SM5 for udate all my themes, thanks again XD

I'll write a more full review with suggestions on this later tonight, but for now:

You could have asked about using Lua from my unreleased theme. If you had asked I would have said yes! But as it is, I feel a bit disenchanted, because you didn't.

I don't and won't hold this against you in the long-term, but you should really consider asking about this sort of thing first, if only to be polite.

If nothing else, a "thank you" would have been nice. Annoyed

Dam* it* Thats right, U are developing SL for SM5 and I forget it completely, I just found the other day but I never remind that it was you, that right dbk2 Sorry it was acidentally... I respect you a lot and yeah...

It was my fault because Of course I forget to ask you first but in that moment I forget completelly the Theme is developing by you. Sorry sorry.

I know that you and Everyone that use the theme must know that about that script you belongs the credits, I know you don't gonna say me that I remove that but I understand your position, sorry man truly sorry I just forget that...

If I have to do something just tell me, it was never intending... Sorry for say it know... Thanks You.

It's cool. I'm really not upset, I'm just caught off-guard.

Maybe you could update the the original post to credit the sources you got things from. For example:

custom player judgments (SM5 code from dbk2/idea from HurtPiggyPig)
custom speed-mod system (SM5 code from dbk2/idea from Mad Matt)
SM5 noteskins for various gametypes (Jousway)
other bits of Lua (freem)
etc.

Acknowledging that you got help from a lot of others (whether they know it or not) and thanking those individuals is generally a good strategy. Smile

Thanks you a lot!! Of course I will do that, also add the credits on the Theme, that helps a lot for make sure who made each part. Thanks again.

Anything else, anything I forget a credit or I should edit. please notice me for fix it as soon as possible.

I'm using stepmania 5 beta 1, but the select style screen doesn't show, it goes from the name select, to the select mode, and the select song screen. Is there something wrong?

No, just a configuration, the other day that happens to me, try this:

1) Go to the Save folder inside the Main Stepmania folder (if the folder is not on the main folder, write on the address bar this %appdata% then go to a Stepmania 5 folder and inside should be the Save folder), and then open with the notepad the file "ThemePrefs.ini" and it should have a line called "AutoSetStyle=true" it should be "true" you have to change it to "false" like this:

[StepMania 5 Default]
AutoSetStyle=false

If there is no line try creating it like the example,

2) If that doesnt work, make sure that the AutoSetStyle Option is deactivated, also try to find inside the Save Folder. go to UserPrefs folder and then to _fallback a possible AutoSetStyle.cfg and delete it or change the value to false.

Do the same inside the folder Data (it is on the main folder of stepmania), and again go to the UserPrefs folder and then to _fallback and delete or edit any file that match with AutoSetStyle or UserPrefAutoSetStyle.cfg, when finish.

Run again the Stepmania 5 already using the SIMPLY-FICATION and try if this is fixed.

lol, well in that case, try to make the file ThemePref.ini with that line and do that about the AutoSetStyles.cfg, delete any file that match with that name, on the UserPrefs and GamePrefs folder

This is a fairly good theme, Th3_Ov3rHell_3XoduZ; thank you for working on it and sharing your efforts with us.

I'll try to talk about both what I like and areas I think you can improve on.

----
Good stuff:
1. You encourage people to try gametypes other than Dance and Pump.
2. You've made nice custom graphics for selecting gametypes and styles.
3. Your ScreenSelectMusic contains a LOT of information without being overwhelming. It's organized neatly.
4. You support SMO.


----
Stuff that you can improve:

1. Your theme is very reliant on Metrics.ini, and your Lua is (from what I can see) mostly taken from other themes. You should definitely try to learn some Lua. It's the only way you'll be able to implement innovative features yourself. If you ever have questions (about any part of SM theming with Lua) just ask. I'll try to help.



2. Your theme raises a lot of errors and warnings (I am assuming you're suppressing them and don't even realize this). You should go into your Preferences.ini and chance IgnoredDialogs so it looks like:
Quote
IgnoredDialogs=

You'll see then, that there are a lot of easy-to-fix warnings like: http://i.imgur.com/tzGc7Fj.png

More of these errors get logged to \Application Data\StepMania 5\Logs\info.txt
It's a good idea to fix as many of these errors as possible before releasing a theme.
If you have questions about how to fix any of your theme's errors, just ask.


3. Your theme's filesize (33MB as a .rar file) is larger than it needs to be because you include a lot of assets you don't actually use. (For example, you have png files in /Graphics/_pane elements/ that never get called from anywhere in your Lua.) If you learn more about theming and Lua, you'll have a better understanding of what files you are and aren't using. This will help your theme run faster and allow people to download it faster!


4. You encourage your users to use an old, no-longer-supported version of StepMania. Beta2 and 2a fixed a LOT of bugs and beta3 (out in the next few days) will fix just as many. There's really no reason to be using beta1 any longer.

----

Keep theming. Keep learning.

hugs,
dbk2

Ufff Wow, I really appreciate each of yours words dbk2 is a honor really.

You know, since I join ZIV, watch videos from Mad Matt, WinDEU I take apreciattion to all these things that someone can do apart of just Play, also using Stepmania 5 opens the door for make cools stuffs, themes, noteskins, etc.

I start making themes just because I watched videos from Matt where he used the Simply Love (at the beginning I thought He made it, but it was hutpiggypig). So I am a SM5 user, I dont like the SM3.95 anymore and the SM5 is great for all these stuffs.

I have increases my skills for make themes (of course with so much helps from others and trying by myself, sometimes the codes works but it is very hard all this about the LUA. And is something I would like to learn more of course for make my own codes and not just for that because, I have ideas about features I would like to implement but I cannt.

I know that I have to improve so much, I am a beginner in all this, is great that your work is appreciated and someone give his help. So Thanks You dbk2 for all...

And about the version, I made the Theme under the beta 1a because it is currently my version I use, is great that there will be a new version (beta3) so in that case, Im gonna update my Themes to that one.

Anything in I can improve is very appreciated and help for make good and better stuffs. Anything else you can say me.. Thanks

It's pretty solid, as forementioned; but I was running into some spacing errors on Course mode (where song titles are concerned), and for some reason it automatically incurs dark/hide targets - either that, or the positioning of the targets is somewhere off-screen.

Thanks for notice me, I am updating the Theme for make it more compatibl3 with the Stepmania 5 Beta 3, so Im gonna check the Course Mode... Also, Thinking in release a special edition like the Simply Arrow Deluxe, but from-the SIMPLY-FICATION.

I will post the release soon.
