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!

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.
I hope you all had a nice Easter! We have three new songs for all of you today.
Hello again, FFR community! We hope you had a happy April Fools. We’re back this month for another installment of exciting updates!
Raw Scoring has replaced Combo Scoring as the standard scoring type across all FFR engines! Raw Scoring is calculated by your raw point total, and is not affected by combo. Don’t let a rogue miss ruin a personal best score ever again! (Please note that the transition to raw scoring is not fully complete yet: The in-game highscores will continue to display your “rank” and “last best” by combo scoring until they can be re-coded to reflect this update).
Skill Rating level ranks are now public. You may view another players’ top 50 scores by searching their username on the FFR Leaderboards and clicking the stats icon next to their name.
Average Rank and Grandtotal Rank stats displayed on profiles now exclude banned and blacklisted accounts.* We hope this change will provide a much better representation of your actual standings on the FFR Leaderboards.
*this update has been temporarily reversed to improve site load time
See you all again next month,
— FFR Development Team
Welcome to the start of April! We’ve got three songs to start this month off with a bang for all of you:
- DossarLX ODI and Xiz provide another song from The Gregory Brothers, this time dealing with autotuned news related to smoking lettuce and American Exceptionalism.
- nestlekwik made a file long ago that was never released to the public but now we’ve decided to provide it as an unlockable skill token. If you’re having a bad day and happen to booflag nestlekwik’s stepfile for Trip to the Moon (Club Remix), this is a reward from nestlekwik for getting PWND! by a difficulty 1 file.
- And the third release is the file you’ve all been waiting for to get ingame… ROBOTOMY! It’s finally available for everyone to play and it’s a very difficult file, so be prepared to get destroyed by choof’s boss song.
