10th Official FFR Tournament: Sign-ups OPEN!

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on September 16th, 201421 Comments »

It is here. After a long anticipated wait, it is my… no — OUR pleasure as FFR staff to bring to you, the 10th Official FFR Tournament. I might have been spearheading the planning process, but there’s no way I could have done this without the help of a bunch of a people. Being that this is such an important event, I feel like it is incredibly important to give credit where it is due:

- Special thanks to One Winged Angel/EzExZeRo7497/Silvuh for assistance on difficulties and song placements.
- Special thanks to PrawnSkunk for the graphic work, as well as fixing some code on the back-end to make sign-ups work properly!
- Special thanks to Xiz for some added prizes (see thread!)
- Advance thanks to the entire FFR Events Team for their upcoming division placements.
- Also, thanks to the few of you that assisted with supplemental files that will eventually be used (shhhhhhhhhhh).
- Finally, thanks to all of the simfile authors whose content will inevitably show up to give the FFR players a run for their money in this milestone tournament!

I’m really happy to be finally hosting this; it has been a long time coming, and it will be the last event that I am hosting, so help me help you guys to make it the best event I ever host!

- TC_Halogen, with the help of One Winged Angel, EzExZeRo7497, Silvuh, PrawnSkunk, Xiz, the FFR Events Team (psychoangel691, foxfire667, YoshL, and PrawnSkunk), and all of the simfile authors who will inevitably have content in the game, and finally: all of you guys participating.

September 2014 Site Updates

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on September 1st, 201422 Comments »

Just a small update this month to tide over everyone as we continue development on some big, exciting updates. See you all again next month!

What’s New?
——
You can now use checkboxes to delete multiple replays at a time!

You no longer require Veteran status to view other players’ levelranks or the extended song leaderboards. Expect more old “subscription-only” features to be made available for all users in the near future.

“Customize Forum Profile” has been removed from the user control panel, as it has to do with a forum profile styling that no longer exists.

“Thumbs down” profile voting has been disabled in preparation for a new profile feedback system that will be test run this month.

Songs of the Week (August 1st, 2014) + short updates

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on August 5th, 201413 Comments »

Hey guys, it’s been quite a while since the last SotW update. I’m going to keep it generally brief compared to our more talented article publishers.

Here are the details for the four songs this week.

Careless Prince Came Back From The Adventure
Musician: ASK
Step Artist: MrPopadopalis25
Song Genre: Dance 2
Difficulty: 65
Song Length: 3:19

Thunder Light
Musician: S.S.H.
Step Artist: hi19hi19
Song Genre: Rock
Difficulty: 74
Song Length: 2:52

Gruntilda’s Final Battle
Musician: Grant Kirkhope
Step Artist: Charu
Song Genre: Arcade
Difficulty: 64
Song Length: 3:03

The Formula
Musician: Junk
Step Artist: bmah
Song Genre: Dance 2
Difficulty: 62
Song Length: 2:21

Also, I just wanted to take the time to let you guys know that the 10th Official Tournament is still in the planning process, and that I didn’t forget about it under any circumstance. One of the largest challenges at the moment is waiting for desired batches to conclude — there is only one more left to be potentially incorporated into the tournament roster. From there, it should be possible to generate a nearly filled tournament structure. I am announcing on the front page (to put pressure on myself, as I hate breaking my word) that I am aiming to have tournament signups open by the second week of September.

My apologies to all of you guys that have been waiting; it won’t be too much longer as long as things go as planned.

August 2014 Site Updates

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on August 1st, 201419 Comments »

Hello again, FFR community! We’re back for another installment of monthly updates. Once again, all updates are built with forward compatibility in mind, and will be easily migrated to the new site once it is complete.

What’s New?
—————–
All forum usergroup titles have been replaced with new usergroup icons designed by Silvuh! With this change, we are hoping to cut down on the clutter below the forum usernames, while giving content creators, moderators and developers more recognition for their hard work in our community. Discuss this change here!
PrawnSkunk, Silvuh, Zageron

The FFR Events and Tournaments sub-forums now feature thread prefixes: [Registration Open], [In Progress] and [Concluded]. The new Latest Events sidebar section uses these tags to automatically track active tournaments, contests and events.
PrawnSkunk, Zageron

The FFR Forum index has received a complete overhaul. After some collaboration with the contributors of Pseudo Enigma’s forum structure thread, the forums are now better organized, and much easier to navigate. The Veteran and Multilayer Plaza sub-forums have been removed indefinitely due to severe inactivity.
–  PrawnSkunk, Zageron

[youtube] bbtags will no longer load automatically, they will only embed their video when the spoiler tag is opened. This will improve loading times drastically on pages which contain many embedded Youtube videos.
Zageron

arcnmx‘s Recently Played Songs page has been around for a while, however at some point in the past it stopped displaying links to watchable replays. The problem was located and repaired. Visit the page at any time to watch what other people have been playing in the last few minutes!

When transferring credits to other players, you may now attach a message to your transaction.

FFR StepCon II: Sign-ups open!

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on July 27th, 201415 Comments »

Welcome to the 2nd Official FFR StepCon — with a twist! It will take three rounds, and one month of vicious head-bobbing to officially crown The Iron Stepman. We hope you enjoy our many twists to come, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

How it works!

Participants will be split into randomized groups for each round. Each group will be given a different song to step. You will be given one week to complete your stepfile to the best of your ability. Every round, half of each group will be eliminated; the best received charts move on to the next round, where all qualifiers will be randomized into new groups. Last one standing wins.

Prizes!

1st Place:
* 1 tournament file of your choice will be automatically released into FFR*
* Physical FFR “All Skill” Token (+ free shipping worldwide!)
* $100 cash

2nd Place:
* 1 tournament file of your choice will be automatically accepted into FFR queue*
* $50 cash
