October 2014 Site Updates

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on September 28th, 201421 Comments »

Sign-ups for the 10th Official FFR Tournament have concluded, and Round 1 is scheduled to start on October 1st at 10:59 PM (server time). Over the next four days, keep an eye on the tournament dashboard, which will slowly begin being populated with division placements! All users will be placed in Division 1 to indicate that they have been accounted for — this is not a final placement, this is just to prevent duplication internally.

This month’s post is a little October-come-early in order to bring you an exciting tournament-themed surprise before the real fun begins! Good luck, get hype, and happy keysmashing!

What’s New?
You can now view the FFR Skill Bracket Distribution of all players with more than 250 games played. These results were generated using a suggested division tool, which is currently assisting in the manual placement of participants this tournament.

The FFR Community Forums are now integrated with Tapatalk for browsing on mobile devices. The Tapatalk app is available for free for the iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone and Windows 8.

Veterans can no longer view invisible users browsing the FFR Community Forums. Invisible mode allows you to browse the forums without appearing in the ‘Currently Active Users’ lists.

10th Official FFR Tournament: Sign-ups OPEN!

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on September 16th, 201428 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

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

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.

- Special thanks to Xiz for the FPP graphic, as usual.
