Please congratulate Deidara837 for his first stepfile in FFR! It’s a spacey bass-filled track from Monstercat artist Grant Bowtie. The other releases this week are a house song by another Monstercat artist, Astronaut, and a BMS track by kireji that is a bit of a style mash-up. Comment on the files in in this week’s thread!
Welcome to the second part of the bi-weekly release for May! We’ve got a Complextro and Drumstep combination this time around with a tricky Progressive file. In other news the Game Managers and a few other judges are currently reviewing judge applications, so the first part of the judge system restructuring is working towards completion.

It’s difficult to outshine last month’s massive raw scoring update, but we hope this month and its community poll also brings some refreshing changes to the site!
Recent Achievements is a new feature that tracks player accomplishments on the front page! The Recent Achievements sidebar announces milestones for Grandtotal, Games Played, Full Combos, AAAs, Division and Tier promotions, and major token unlocks (Otaku Speedvibe/St. Scarhand/Home Run Derby). If you have any suggestions for additional achievements, please leave a comment on this post!
Visiting your Level Ranks now updates your Skill Rating and FFR Rank. In an additional bug fix, Level Ranks and Leaderboard updates now generate the same Average Rank and AAA count.
The maximum saved replays for regular players been increased from 50 to 75. Players with Veteran status may now record up to 200 saved replays!
Community Poll: The Future of Grandtotal
Thank you to everyone who voted and left their feedback regarding the upcoming official tournament! We have another important poll for you all this month asking: “Which scoring system should be used to calculate Grandtotal?”.
A Challenger Appears!

Hey all, now that it’s May I’ve been thinking ahead to the official tournament. As you know we’ve been doing all new files for every round in each division for the last I believe it’s 5 tournaments now. As you know, this has sometimes caused delays in the past. So I wanted to ask all of you, do you think it’s necessary to stay with all brand new files in all rounds? Or use already in game files and do new files for the final round? Open to any other suggestions you all may have as well. I’ve created a poll, so please go vote there and leave a post about why you chose that option so I have a better idea of how the community feels about this topic. You can find the poll here.
EDIT I’ve heard you guys loud and clear on wanting new content. I’m going to to my best to get new content and still kick the tournament off at a good time. Simfile authors out there, I’m going to need your help. For the current batch please try to submit files that you think would be fitting for the tournament. We also tend to lack in the lower and higher range. So try to get things in that are say from 15 to the 50 range for the low side and 80+ for the high side. If these things get submitted into this batch there will be a better chance of filling the slots needed. Let’s all work together and make this happen!
Thanks in advance!
This week’s releases are a rocking remix of an anime ED, a song from a Swedish synthpop group, and some spacey game music. Stop by this week’s thread to leave a comment!
It’s me again, Silv the FFRfox. Sorry for the delay with the graphics. Comment on this week’s songs in this thread. Lens flare!
Comment on this week’s songs in this thread.
On April 9th, Velocity made an error in a script which resulted in a large amount of valid scores being dropped from the database when they should not have. The only scores affected were those where the combined “Perfect + Good + Average + Miss + Boo” were greater than the amount of notes in the song. The exact problem was that “Boo” should not have been included in this check. AAAs and incomplete scores were not affected by this mistake.
The following scores have been recovered:
• Complete database backup made on October 24, 2014
• All scores recorded from: April. 7th, April. 8th, and April 9th.
• noname219′s efforts to collect archives from external sources will also fill a number of missing scores.
• Saved replays
We will be continuing to recover these over the next few days:
• 10th Official Tournament dashboard scores
Additionally, we will be able to manually recover any scores submitted to the Score Recovery Form. These steps will restore a large portion of the lost scores, but will not account for any scores recorded between October 25, 2014 through April 6, 2015.
