So, St. Patrick’s Day is here once again and boy do we have some fun in store for you and your arrow hungry fingers on this extra green weekend!
First of all, a special edition release of 5 songs plus the Veteran song from 2 weeks ago is going public PLUS we have another contest for you to put your butt on the line and potentially get rewarded with some delicious tokens + credits ;D
In the next few hours there will be details of the weekends contest, so stay tuned and keep your eye on this page! But before any of that, we are going to get into the groove of St. Patrick’s Day with some new song releases.
[March 17 Released Songs]
G runtilda’s Lair by chaoticmarin (ninjaKIWI) – Arcade (8-bit) / Tricky / 1:20
R evolutionary Etude v2 by Chopin (Silvuh) – Skill Token (Classical) / Very Challenging / 2:47

All of the files this week are all a little different as you will discover, but fear not, this is but a temporary case of the greens. (and as you might have noticed, the FFR banner has been slapped with a bit of green too.) There is no veteran song this week, but there is a Skill Token to add to your collection! Revolutionary Etude v2 can be unlocked by passing its predecessor, Revolutionary Etude, located in the Legacy genre.
You guys all wanted a new token… Â so LD decided to bring one to life. Â All compliments can go to me… Â all complaints to LD. Â :) Â
This token is an achievement token. Â Get a positive score on every public song, then check your levelrank and you’ll unlock PianoCore by hi19hi19. Â Song is by x0-000 and I think the trills and weird jump-16th/24th things makes it a low FMO, but I’m open to making it a VC.
Enjoy and continue to look for new stuff in the coming days and weeks!
-Tass & LD

A few song related things for you guys…
1. 2 new subbie SotW songs are out, for yesterday and Friday.
2. 2 new public songs were released on Friday and yesterday (like every Friday and Sunday). Do A Barrel Roll by Kil, stepped by ElectricWerewolf and Here’s To Life [Oni] by Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution, stepped by DrugstoreCowboy, Kailure, AND Bluguerrilla.
3. We’ve added 2 new SKILL TOKENS, which gives us 100 total. #99 is straight-forward… Pass One Minute Waltz with less than 100 boos to unlock Minute Waltz v2. I listed it as a FMO, but it may be high VC. Not sure. Stepfile by jimerax. #100 is a bit different. We want to reward all the Token Whores out there, and hi19hi19 gave us the perfect opportunity. ST #100 requires you to have unlocked the previous 99 skill tokens. Have #1-99, then check your levelrank.php, and you’ll be given #100… the aptly named Token Whore, by dj tepples. If you get access to this song, congrats!, you ARE a Token Whore!
4. Some Support Token news: About 100 users were able to play Dendrite v2 without actually having access to the song… we’ve removed the scores from these users. In addition, all support tokens will now show up in special levelrank, not normal levelrank. Finally, challenges are being disallowed on support tokens if you do not have the token (just like secret, token, skill, etc).
5. Be on the lookout for a special public release file later today too. We ARE sitting on 599 public songs, and today IS a holiday (in the US).
Well, we were going to do a new token anyway… but, might as well theme it around July 4th. It is, I believe, the easiest of the 4 Achievement Tokens released to date. All you have to do is load up MP and get 2501 exp.
Wait. What? You don’t know what exp in MP is? Well, then clearly you’ve never read Shashakiro’s Complete Multiplayer Rules sticky, which clearly explains that you win/lose exp in MP, which is displayed as a colored bar and level to the users. In case you are lazy, 2501 exp is the minimum amount to be level 10. So, get to MP level 10 (or higher) and check your levelrank.php and you’ll be rewarded with Paradise Decay’s Slow Motion (Wipeout Pure Xtra), stepped by SulferDragon.
Achievement Token #3 has been gotten by 645 users at the time of the release. The requirement? Full Combo 50% of all public songs in the game. We feel that percentages work better compared to a static number. This way, 500 more public songs from now, the req is still 50% and not 274. Note: On this and all future percentage based tokens, all percentages will be rounded down. FCing 49.996% of the songs in game will NOT get you the token. Once, again, just check your levelrank.php page to get the token.
Quickdraw is a not-so-flaccid song by one of our very own, KgZ. Stepfile is by Vote4Nixon. I listed it as a 9, but I have a feeling you guys are going to yell at me that it is only an 8. If so, I will not be opposed to changing it.
Also, we’ve added a new feature to your levelrank page. At the very bottom, below your Average Rank, it now displays your % of songs FCed and % of songs AAAd. This should make it easier for you guys to know how close you are to the token. Also, again, if you get the token and then slip under 50% of songs FCed, you will NOT lose the token.
Apparently some haters in the new Achievement Token thread didn’t think we’d do one of these based on average rank. I’m not really sure why… but that’s why they’re haters, I guess.
Anyway, this has been in store since we came up with all of these initial reqs for achievement tokens. Just like with yesterday’s, if you meet the req (either now or in the future)… just go to your levelrank page to gain access to the song. You’ll find it on Page 3 of Token.
For those wondering, there are 4177 users with 1 billion or more GTS. There are currently 343 users with an average rank under 1000. So this is a decent bit harder to get!
PS – LD wants me to mention something dealing with the Level Stats page… something about it now showing perf/good/av/miss, etc.
No, there is no riddle to solve… no brainteaser to figure out… no link on ffrtokens.com for you to steal in order to get this token. No no no. This is a unique token, but not the only of it’s kind. Expect to see more of these in the future.
I am calling them “achievement tokens” and you’ll be able to find them in Token (Skill is too crowded already, and these are lifetime achievements, not single-game skill based unlocks). To get access to the songs, just meet the achievement… then check your levelrank.php page.
This 1st achievement token is for the song Orchestral Angels, by dj-nate. Stepfile is by behanjc and has some nifty jumpstream towards the end. I still say it is a high 8 and not a 9. I managed to AAA on my 2nd try. To unlock: have 1,000,000,000 (1 billion) Grand Total Score.
Expect to see both easier and harder achievement tokens in the near future.
So, I posted a subscriber news story last night (also found in my profile’s random thoughts) about how we are going to fix the challenge system so that you can no longer play files you don’t have access to by getting a challenge on them. Well, that has happened. So, now you won’t be able to play Vertex BETA vROFL unless you earn it. Or Otaku [Oni]. Or the big boy secret levels. Or any upcoming levels we have in store. These levels are meant to be rewards for an accomplishment, and they haven’t been to this point. Now they are again. If you want to play them, you’ll have to earn it.
You guys can thank (or curse) Lightdarkness for implementing this system. It is the reason he thinks he is awesome. I think he’s a pretty cool kid myself.
Finally… we have some new token ideas that we’ll be putting into place later this week, completely different than anything you’ve seen before. *insert gasps and looks of awe*.
