QA Time!

Posted in FFR News on June 20th, 2020

Good evening, morning, afternoon, brunch, coleslaw, bubble wrap, or whatever time it is where you live.

First and probably most importantly, I want to thank every person that has taken the time to chat with me over the FFR Discord Server this past week or so. It’s been an absolute pleasure telling old stories, meeting new players and just reconnecting with the FFR community in general. I will maintain in my conversations that I may have started FFR but the community is why it’s still here. YOU are FFR. Because of this, I want to make sure that the community has a say in the direction that we take things and that everyone is aware of our ideas on how to move forward. What do you hate? What do you love? What does FFR need for a new generation of players? What questions do you want to ask me? The developers? The admins? The mods? We are at a point right now where we have so many people selflessly contributing their time and nearly unlimited infrastructure potential. The only thing missing is your voice.

After thinking about it for a bit, we decided the best way to host this will be through a QA session on the FFR Discord server. We are just starting to pull together the details but it’s looking like we will be hosting it next Saturday evening. A few of us will be chatting live, taking pre-submitted questions and live questions as time permits. I wouldn’t be surprised if the session runs late into the night.

We will be finalizing everything early this upcoming week and will let everyone know over both the FFR front page and through Discord. To start this off, please feel free to leave as many questions as you would like in the comments. We will start collecting and organizing them for the live session. Nothing is off-limits and no question is too small. At the same time, I am looking forward to sharing a few stories from FFR’s past.

P.S. Omg… So busy with FFR infrastructure over the past few weeks. All of us have been working hard behind the scenes. I will be updating you guys on that front with a different front page post.

  1. neat

  2. Cool beans

  3. I have so many questions.

  4. >What does FFR need for a new generation of players?

    An in-game tutorial. An opening welcome screen that leads to a reference-able guide on how to smash arrows. What is a AAA/etc. What do all these numbers in game mean. Pop-up tooltips on more options or explain options in tutorial or both. How to improve at the game. Join the discord/forum for more help.

  5. Nice!

  6. One of my favorite features back in the old days was the prochat, where did that go and is it possible for it to return? I realize society has somewhat drifted away from chat rooms but it used to be a great way for us to connect with other players.

  7. When you are in the middle of a queue you created, but then half way through something happens and you have to interrupt it (quitting the song), the playlist disappears. Can we get it to save temporarily? So that you can pick up on the next song when you come back.

  8. I would like to see a feature to create playlists. Essentially, a personal set of lists that you can define. If I log in I might have a warm up play list then a tricky playlist, then a get better playlist etc.

  9. nvm that’s a saved queue…..

  10. :D

  11. Snythlight? You’re still here?

  12. Also, what about Flash 2020?

    What’s going to happen at the end of the year?

  13. It’s great to see you around Synth! Makes me want to get back into this game / keep up with the community more often again.

  14. you can play the client version instead of “in-browser”

  15. Inexperienced opinion: the game needs a better menu UI. Right now it’s a bloated feature dump. Good options and features are buried under cryptic menus or non-existent descriptions.

    A better UI could also reduce the amount a new player would be reliant on a tutorial to explain the game/features.

  16. Dark Mode

  17. I won’t be there because of work but if someone would be kind enough to record it I’d be most pleased
