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

3rd Place:
* 1 tournament file of your choice will be automatically accepted into FFR queue*
* $25 cash

4th – 5th Place:
* $10 cash

6th – 8th Place:
* $5 cash

Because of the major forum overhauls that occurred today, you may find yourself with a problem.

Things which are supposed to have changed:
- Profile Picture uploading (You shouldn’t be able to see this anyway.)
- Signature Picture uploading (Use IMG tags.)
- Attachments (These are useless, use file hosting sites.)
- Your “staff” threads have all been moved into the staff forums.
- Some users have migrated user classes, we consolidated and removed a lot.
- Double check for your forum, as most of the names have changed.

If you are experiencing:
- Loss of an important forum section you previously had. (Except veteran.)
- Inability to post in forums where you were previously able to.
- An overfull PM inbox.
- Some other weird problem?

Please post here, and I will try to fix things for you!

Cheers,
Zageron

p.s. The changes are not final just yet, so if there is something that stabs you in the face just post here.

Hello again fine FFR community,
We have been hard at work developing new features which are able to be deployed on both the legacy and development sites. This means that while the new website may be a fair distance away, we are able to deliver brand new content to you without losing time developing them!

Updates
—————–
A new Twitch.tv live-stream directory is now available which provides an area for viewing active FFR, SM, and Osu!!
PrawnSkunk, Zageron

The Flash Flash Revolution FAQ has been completely reworked and given a fancy new page.
foxfire667, PrawnSkunk

The two sidebars sported in various locations around FFR have been updated.
PrawnSkunk, Zageron

Credit Jackpot has been removed from FFR due to extreme lack of activity and interest.

FFR Design & Development

Small Update

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on June 24th, 201412 Comments »

Hello FFR,

- Added /ignore feature to Prochat. Ignore your friend’s messages, PMs and Buzzes. Try to ignore staff, fail.
- Added IRC reminiscent symbols to chat for class differentiation. (Because of the new colour store.)
- Added /help function to prochat. Displays available commands.
- Replaced the profile tournament badges with new versions. Drop shadow removed. (credit: PrawnSkunk)

Have a good day! :D

Announcements & Downtime

Update 2:
And back.
– Zag

Update:
We’ve fixed the issue with the forum, and also fixed what caused it.
We suggest you change your password for your own assurance of safety.

———–
Hello FFR,
Just a few things I thought you’d like to know!

- We will likely be experiencing some heavy downtime Sunday, while FFR is moved to another server and service provider.
- We are aware that the forum header is missing. It made us laugh, and we’re going to figure out the easiest way to fix it as soon as possible.
- There have been some big updates to the R^3 engine recently, go check it out!

Thanks,
Zageron
