"Why do you need...?"

Last updated: 2017-06-19 01:34am
I am very sorry to say this, but I will not be making a new simfile for this week. Sad
I had planned to step "Wanna be Startin' Somethin'" by Michael Jackson, but I won't be able to finish it on time tomorrow before the deadline due to the fact that during the week (which is when I usually get most of my stepping done), I was spending the majority of my time studying for finals (which were during the week), and I was away all weekend on top of that.
Besides, the song proved to be a total nightmare to sync...
Hopefully this coming week will be better for me, as I will have tons of time on my hands to do stepping work. Smile
Don't forget, I'm angel for yoooooooou(|[*'v'*]|)

"Show me your moves."
Sorry if this ruined anyone's perception of the chart, but it seems Conga Feeling's .ssc file in the Custom ZIP may have a graphical glitch. If this is occurring on your system, where the graphics are not loading, please check out the .ssc file to fix the potentially mistyped file names for the graphics.

(Looking at these song selections it seems this week is full of all-star charts. Wonder how it will all turn out in the end...)

NaHaNaHa vs. Gattchoon Battle / DJ Senda & Tiny-K

I was having trouble syncing the song(music file is MP3 I know how it effects Stepmania I don't know why), but I'll fix it later.

Feedback is appreciated.

Um... Tikal, did you accidentally delete the heavy chart you and SupremeX worked on? Or did you move that chart to the challenge slot?

I updated the simfile to fix up a few things in the chart.

https://zenius-i-vanisher.com/v5.2/viewsimfile.php?simfileid=32189

Please redownload if you have downloaded previously.

Whoops forgot to fix the step at b294.5 when I was looking at it last time. It should be fixed now.

Just download the .sm and .scc files to override the old ones and simply hit "Reload Songs" in the Options menu.

Got too distracted by CEO, so unfortunately no chart this week. Upsetting considering I had Footloose synced and already had the chorus stepped.

Nope. I checked the .sm file and there wasn't a sign of the Heavy chart Cuzco mentioned. Only charts in there are Beginner, Light, Standard and Challenge (the stepchart artists were SupremeX that worked on Beginner + Standard and TiKAL worked on Light + Challenge as mentioned in the respective charts). Sorry, man : (

"Hi"

Last updated: 2017-06-19 11:07am
Hi.

Since I've been posting early with themes, I'll just continue the trend for now. This will give many people the time to search for songs.

I'm done with finals so it's time for me to slow down and relax.

Speaking of slowing down...

Week 8
[SloweRemix]

Step a remix of its original song, but the remix MUST have a slower BPM than the original.
`"Small samples" do not count. For example, do not step: Kanye - Stronger and say it's a slower remix of Daft Punk - Harder Better Faster Stronger. Good thinking though.
`Do not step the BPM as half-speed and call it slower. Let's judge smartly about this lol
`No covers
`Do not modify the remix of the song to be slower (don't purposely decrease the BPM). lol

If you have any questions or need clarifications, post here or PM me.


Also, you can still post Week 7 files until Monday 5pm UTC/1pm EST/10am PST. Do not post for Week 8 until after those times. Furthermore, please PM Pandemonium-X, Oni-91, or Feraligatr (thanks for everyone who does PM me; good shit you guys l0l) your votes for week 7! Thank you and good luck/have fun everyone!

Best wishes,
Feraligatr

Baha Men before they went popular, released in 1997.
This was only released on vinyl, which I own a copy of that I ripped, so you'll hear a few pops and crackles.

Posting this now since I might not be available later:

+5 Dance with Cannibals
Honestly, the song is a little bit more repetitive than I expected. It's still good though, and the steps are great, very fun patterns and rhythms.

+4 REAL EXISTANCE
Good all around. Song was decent and the steps flow very well and make for a fun experience.

+2 Kirby Smash
Chart felt a little understepped at parts. I don't know if this was to make the gimmicks easier to read/pass, but I'd like to see all 16ths stepped regardless. The gimmicks weren't mind-blowing but definitely added a fun factor that puts the file apart from the others (probably would have gotten a +0 as a normal chart, though I of course can't say if it would have been stepped in the same way in that case).

+2 Appaloosa
Props for trying to sync that, though I still didn't feel it was on-point enough for me. Regardless, the chart had some fun ideas and patterns; crossovers and 24ths usage was good in most cases and you made a good effort on spicing up an otherwise pretty sluggish song choice.

+1 四月の雨
Feels solid, but surprisingly unfun for some reason. There were a couple holds during the slow parts that would make the player spin incorrectly, but they weren't too bad since the (I'm guessing planned) double step is way easier to do anyway.


Random notes on some of the other files (these aren't the only good/bad points of these files, but noteworthy nonetheless):

Chronos
Faces left a lot during some parts, might want to look that over.

FAKE STYLE
Nice use of spins during the "cha cha chara"-parts. Got pretty close to a point for me. Have to say I really don't click with that song haha

Girls In Luv
The first part of the chart (the 8 footer) is pretty fun with nice 16ths rhythms to accent the vocals. As soon as the chorus kicks in though, the song runs out of gas for me and really doesn't allow for any fun arrow placements. Mind you, the rest of the chart is pretty good considering the music, but I kind feel like the latter part of the song let you down here.

Sayonara Planet Wars
Nice song choice, but it definitely could have been put to better use.
- If you have a single short speedup that really doesn't add much for the player to read (it's just a long hold), please put the #DISPLAYBPM tag in the .sm file. It makes for a much less frustrating experience when setting speed mods. On that note, I really don't like the use of straight up bpm speedups if the song doesn't actually kick into high bpm. Other implementations of speedup/slowdown/"bounce" gimmicks can be used here.

- The stops and bpm changes used are really unfun for me, since they're pretty much impossible to read correctly unless you've (to some extent) memorized the song and those parts of the chart. The stops would often stop the chart scrolling very close to the next arrows and make it pretty difficult to time, or the bpm would switch so that the expected 16th jump turns out to actually be an equivalent 8th due to the halved bpm. Idk if that paragraph was readable, but hopefully you get the idea. I'd recommend you to read up a bit on how to implement stop gimmicks and bpm gimmicks without messing up the readability of the charts, since the idea to use them wasn't bad.

- The arrow placements were a bit of a mixed experience. For the less hectic parts of the song, I felt they were pretty good and followed the rhythm quite accurately. For the more complex parts of the song though, the chart felt inconsistent. Sometimes the 16ths rhythms would be fully accented with arrows, sometimes they'd just be 8th stream. Then at other times, they'd be a mix, consisting of short 8ths parts with seemingly random bursts of 16ths thrown in, when it seemed like a majority of the rhythms in the song were different kinds of fast 16th patterns. Stepping more of the 16th rhythms would have made for a much more difficult chart, but I'd prefer it to this, which felt both understepped and overstepped at the same time. Again, hopefully this paragraph wasn't too ureadable either; I didn't have the time to get concrete examples from the chart to express myself better.

"Schall" we step?
I really wish you had stepped the fast piano parts as well. 8ths feel understepped, considering it is the highest difficulty chart.



For most of the charts that I didn't mention, I though they were stepped okay, but the song and rhythms were just not interesting enough compared to some of the other files. For people other than me, it doesn't necessarily mean that the files were worse or less fun, it's just not my thing at all. Sometimes there'd be an ambiguous step or jump, or the occasional double step, but those were usually avoided easily enough. Mostly I just don't think the song choices or charting styles for these files suit me at all.

Scatman's World / Scatman John
BPM: 147
ITG scale: Beginner - Light - Standard - Heavy - Challenge 11
X-scale: Beginner - Light - Standard - Heavy - Challenge 17

Cut & sync are originally from Mungyodance 3. No graphics available.

Phew...just made it...by six minutes. Anyhow...

...as a little bit of a walkthrough for this file (that goodness knows how I managed to throw together in under the remaining hour of the submission deadline), there are certain parts with footswitches (marked with a mine), and towards the end, a section with sideswitches (also marked with mines).

"But Axis, what are sideswitches?" you may ask.

Simply put, they are footswitches...where you footswitch on either the left or right arrow, and as a result, must be done as a crossover. In short, a crossover footswitch.

The Edit was the chart I had originally intended to be the "to be judged" chart, but decided to retcon to Edit as a bonus, and had the actual Challenge be a nerfed, easier variant.

The difference is in the first verse of the song. The Challenge simply goes to the vocals. The Edit has 16th streams going to the instrumentals in the background. The rest is the same in both charts.

And those who know how fast Scatman John, well...scats o3o should have a pretty decent idea on how difficult this chart gets (especially in two sections in the second half).

UM. I uploaded the file but for some reason the OGG won't show up. Uploading custom ZIP doesn't work either. I wonder why.
This link takes you to that custom ZIP.

It's now fixed!

Everything About You / Ugly Kid Joe
Heavy 8 because I just moved to a new home and it's been hella busy

The story behind this song is a bit weird.
Back when I was in senior high, I applied to be the school DJ. It sounds cool, but my only job there is to hit play and to speak a bit. Only on Thursdays, too. For this "job", I was required to have pop songs in my phone to be played, so I looked for a bunch of songs. One of the songs I looked was Everything About You, but by One Direction. I got distracted and just downloaded the first song that appeared (bad practice, don't do this) and ended up downloading this song. And it sounds nice. (Nicer than 1D, too)

I thought it might be neat to simulate a pre-2000 DDR environment (specifically, 2nd Mix). Not to go as far as TaroNuke's file back then, just no holds and forced flat on SM5. To get rid of the forced flat, delete SSC.

Thank you, and enjoy! Also thanks chewi for the post below! (if this gets DQed then oh well)
