We’re going to start a new weekly section called What’s Happenin’ and it will include any information we have to give to you guys on a weekly basis. These posts will also include user run events from now on. We’ll kick off the first week’s with a few things.
T-Shirts – Many of you have expressed that you really want to buy one. With FFR being non profit there were some concerns but I believe I can make it happen. I’m asking all of you to come up with the designs you’d like to see and then we’ll have a vote on which people like the most. Check out the thread here for all the details.
We have a few user tournaments running:
Zenith’s Helping Hand Tournament is currently in round 5 which ends tomorrow at 8:59pm servertime. So if you’re in the tournament don’t forget!
DC’s 1st Post-Official Team Tournament Extravaganza has kicked off and is currently in round 2. This round ends Dec. 16th at 11:59pm servertime. Don’t let your team down! Make sure to get those scores in.
Finally we have gstarfire’s All Skill Tournament is kicking off round 5 tonight. You have one week to get your scores in for this tournament.
Hey Wolf Game players, have you ever wished you could stare that wolfy SOB right in the face while you were grilling them? Well now you can! This weekend there’s a series of live TWG events going on. Check out the thread here for all the details on that.
That’s all I have for you this time on what’s happenin’ See you next time!

(Sorry guys, had to remove it from the front page due to complaints!)
Apologies to anyone who has been waiting for anything of the sort on the front page. You guys asked on the forums, so I’m giving you an answer, and a few changes.
First off, allow me to begin with some newly released songs.
Musician: Reizoko Cj
Step Artist: hi19hi19
Song Genre: Dance 2
Song Length: 1:25
NOTE: This song is used to unlock CirnoRHTL. Full combo the song with 19 goods or less and 19 boos or less to satisfy the unlock requirement.
Video Out E
Step Artist: Gradiant
Song Genre: Purchased [3,450]
Song Length: 2:16
Only two songs for now, just to tide you guys over while the main attraction is being prepared.
Second: I’d like to give a big shoutout for our tournament winners, finalists, semi-finalists, quarter-finalists, and everyone else who took the time to compete in this large event. To the top 8, enjoy your time in the spotlight! And for those of you who are bothered by the lies and notice that there are actually 9 people in D7: that is what happens when you can’t break AAAs down enough to matter until round 6. Isn’t it lovely?
I know it’s not a lot, but hopefully this will suffice as an update for users concerned about not enough information being put out there. Again, I can only speak for myself: I do apologize for any of the issues that I’ve caused, and I am responsible for a large number of them, going down to the tournament starting substantially later than it should have, all the way to pre-tournament where there was a 6 week void in song releases.
Here we are at the finals: down to our final three contenders in each division!
Since it’s the last round, our finalists from each division and the charts they will be playing deserve a special front page shoutout:
Scrambooch by Cloudspires
Starlight_Pwn-3, funiax, and NomadSix are our three D1 finalists, set to battle it out over the next week on Scrambooch. The song is an upbeat chiptune with a tricky swing rhythm throughout, and the chart brings some of the densest arrow patterns D1 has seen yet.
Quad Queens by D.J.Nero
IwasAsquidOnce, Coldreaver, and alphabet123456 are the select few that have made it to the end in D2. The sounds of horn fanfares, snare drums, and blistering fast piano arpeggios will accompany D2 competitors as they each attempt to claim the gold medal.
Chronostasis by LeaF
BRZF, Xtreme2252, and DJzAIKz are the three from D3 who have put themselves above the rest. Their finals song is quite the chameleon, shifting from drum ‘n’ bass to dubstep to delicate piano harmonies to everything in between- and the file reflects that diversity. Be ready for anything!
Candy Crack Curtain Call by t+pazolite
Zerkrome, dha, and ShadowDueler97 have made it to the podium in D4 this tournament, and the song they will be playing to determine the order in which they will stand is quite intense. In typical t+pazolite fashion this song clocks in at 240 bpm, so D4 will need to bring everything they have to tackle tough patterns at this blistering pace.
The Labyrinth of Skadi by Blitz Lunar
rayword45, lurker, and hi19hi19 are the last three standing in D5. They will be battling it out to the sounds of Blitz Lunar’s trademark technical chiptunes, on a unique and exciting file featuring copious amounts of jumpstream and fast burst patterns at 225 bpm for over 4 minutes straight.
Serious Shit by The Quick Brown Fox
African Anger, Lambdadelta, and _Zenith_ are our final three from D6. Setting a new record among public FFR files for average arrow density, Serious Shit is absolutely a file that lives up to its name. The 230 bpm sounds of Renard’s speedcore will set a perfect backdrop for the final showdown in D6.
Hatsune Miku no Shoushitsu -Gekijouban- by cosMo
EtienneSM, samurai7694, and shadow 1800 are the last three standing in D7. To list just a few things, their finals chart features devilishly patterned 200 bpm 32nd bursts, a stream section that speeds up to 343 bpm 16ths, a few dense walls of 12th jumps at 240 bpm, and countless other finger-melting patterns. Hatsune Miku no Shoushitsu -Gekijouban- is truly the finals chart D7 deserves.
The D7 finals chart will be turned into a skill token at the end of the tournament. It is public for this one week only.
Scores will be wiped afterwards unless you qualify for the skill token requirement.
The requirement will be: AAA a difficulty 89 or higher file.
Simply stated, but unlocking this token will a true testament to FFR skill. Be sure to enjoy the file while it is public!
NOTE: CHARTS ARE NOT FRAME-FIXED IN THIS VIDEO
Recently, users were pitted against one another to create a chilling tale with FFR as a central theme. One story, crafted by Dark_Chrysalis, swept away the competition and received overwhelming support by all of the voters! If you haven’t already experienced this story, stick around and give it a read. Without further ado, here is a preview of the story that gave users the most goosebumps, “Difficulties”!
As DT145 slowly regained consciousness, he noticed several things out of place. Firstly, someone had removed his clothes and dressed him in grey garb, “DT145″ emblazoned on his sleeve. Secondly, he had no clue what happened the night before. And thirdly, he had no idea where he was anymore. Rubbing his eyes, he looked around and grew increasingly distressed. He was in what appeared to be solitary confinement of some sort. Thick, cement walls surrounded him with a solid steel door the only entrance he could see. He was currently resting on a simple bedframe and mattress bolted to one wall, with a stainless steel toilet to the side. A small, round black dome was in the corner, undoubtedly a security camera. At first he thought he was in a prison of some kind, until he realized that the only source of lighting in the room currently was coming from a computer screen in the far corner with a wooden chair in front of it. Where the hell was he?
He slowly removed himself from his covers and set his bare feet down on the ice-cold floor, wincing a little as he walked towards the light source. Approaching the computer, he noticed it was on a log-in screen of some kind, waiting for him. A little sticky note was on the side of the screen; “LOGIN: DT145 PASSWORD: s82jK3ofl” was written on it. Thinking it would be worth a try to figure out what was all going on, he typed in his information and the screen went black for a few seconds before returning with a nearly blank desktop. All that was on it was a flash player standalone as well as a white square that looked like a chatbox. He could move it around but not delete or remove it. As a matter of fact, it wasn’t on the taskbar, nor were any other folders to go into; he couldn’t even access a start menu of any kind, and keyboard shortcuts didn’t work. He doubleclicked on the flash player and was shocked to find the application it started: the FFR R^3 engine. It didn’t prompt for his username/password, nor did it appear that any songs were in the game for this version.
Even more confused than when he began his investigation, he decided to give the chatbox a try;
There’s a ton more to this tale, and believe me it’s worth the read. Check out the rest of the story here, as it would be a bit large to have in it’s entirety as a front page post.
