I already pm'ed al2k4 to request update the pack minutes after i uploaded my last simfile. Let's wait until he responds.

As for the DDR PS2 bg movies, i haven't figured out how to rip them.


Edit (2021-09-09):
DDR A20 official simfile category is now up.

Not sure if this is a good place to ask, but would it be possible to add jackets to each category and not just the banners? Like full on with the "open the folder and select a song" text and everything? It would really just wrap it all up with a nice little bow.

Not sure where to post this but i post this here since this is not exactly a simfile error. DanceDanceRevolution II (Wii) (North America) has several songs that should be removed or updated with better audio since they are featured in later arcade version after its release.

Remove List:
Dance Partay
Diamond Night
Get Back Up!
Haunted Rhapsody
HEARTBREAK (Sound Selektaz remix)
In The Air
Seule
Something Special
Summer Fairytale
Take A Step Forward
Tell Me What To Do
The Heavens Above
UNBELIEVABLE (Sparky remix)
Wings of an Angel (Fly With Me)

Update List:
London EVOLVED Ver.A
London EVOLVED Ver.B
London EVOLVED Ver.C

Note: This obviously does not include full versions of these songs (if they have one) .

Speaking of London EVOLVED, it actually does not have the V in "Ver" capitalized in the arcade titles either (London EVOLVED ver.A, London EVOLVED ver.B, London EVOLVED ver.C).

Recently, I've added #TITLETRANSLIT tags for various official AC files based on how they're sorted in the DDR A3 music page. However, these files may or may not be updated again, because, in the future, razorblade and I are hoping to request new tags for .sm and .ssc files to either StepMania 5.1, Outfox 5.3, or both.

#SORTTITLE
#SORTSUBTITLE
#SORTARTIST

This will allow the TRANSLIT tags to keep various symbols and/or numbers while StepMania's songlist is romanized. That way, songs such as F4SH10N, S!ck, and others can remain sorted while being romanized or not.

For example, the top of SAYONARA☆ディスコライト's .sm/.ssc file would look like this:

#TITLE:SAYONARA☆ディスコライト;
#ARTIST:nana(Sevencolors) feat.ジゼル・クイン;
#TITLETRANSLIT:SAYONARA☆disco light;
#ARTISTTRANSLIT:nana(Sevencolors) feat. Giselle Quin;
#SORTTITLE:SAYONARA disco light;

Which brings me the question: will songs with Japanese titles be given the same treatment? I'm also hoping SM 5.1, Outfox 5.3, or both get Japanese syllable sorting ("あ", "か", "さ", etc.) since AC DDR sorts Japanese-titled songs under Japanese syllable folders.

Bump!

I have removed all arbitrary files and folders from official categories. This includes:

• Extra mp3 files where ogg's are present
• Extra folders from past punctuation/spelling changes
• Unnecessary custom ZIP packages and video folders
• Random Thumbs.db files
• Credits pages

Additionally, the ZIv staff has found and patched a vulnerability within the admin file browser that allowed any user (registered or non-registered) to access ALL simfile category directories, with the ability to delete files and folders.

If the custom zips are being removed, I think it would be a good idea to update some of the older videos. Paranoia uses an old 4:3 Extreme 2 video that looks like crap on modern displays, especially if you use the cropping options to get 16:9 out of it instead of letting it pillarbox. Most of these songs have newer 16:9ish versions (the video is centered between blurred pillarboxing instead of black pillarboxing). I know a few do have the newer videos (Afronova Primeval, Bloody Tears, and Blind Justice for sure do) but some like Paranoia definitely don’t, which wasn’t a big deal when it had a custom zip with a proper HD 16:9 video but now it doesn’t, plus it will give other songs that have never had an HD video uploaded a nice face lift.

Hi! First of all, thanks for doing this. I noticed the Thumbs.db ones in particular and forgot to bring those up. Secondly, is there any way to look past the Latest 20 Official Simfiles page for a longer list of recent updates? I've been trying to keep the chart data spreadsheet up to date, and manually checking that page 2-3 times a day is not sustainable for me.

I've notified al2k4 of this request, and he'll be able to do it at a later time. 👍

EDIT: Latest and Top pages have been expanded to 100 entries.

"now led_light for short"
While you're at it, can I request that the site agent be expanded to 100 entries too (as I'm only interested in the AC packs for my app)?

Thanks in advance!

All banners in DanceDanceRevolution A (AC) (International) are 512x160!

This is probably a stupid question, but what's the reasoning behind the 512×160 banners? The official DDR games use 256×80, so shouldn't that be the standard?

With the advent of jackets being included in DDR, and modern SM resolutions being higher than official DDR games, 512x160 banners make for better display. These sizes are even more warranted since jackets are 512x512 as of DDR A.

Additionally, it's also the reason I make 836x328 banners for custom ITG files.

If it helps, the DDR SELECTION UI for SN2 officially uses 512x160 banners.

I didn't realize that DDR actually used 512×512.
