Random Thoughts
FFR vs SM
Posted on: May 18, 2014, at 01:24:55pm   [0 comments]
Having played both quite intensively, I think that I could describe the difference as follows:

FFR vs SM:

+ No need to download tons of songs
+ Motivation to fix scores because of tier points, tournaments etc.
+ Active community
+ Some flexibility in settings that is missing or is less intuitive in SM, such as receptor spacing
+ Actually judges each arrow separately, which penalizes chord cohesion abuse

- Fundamental error in scoring system: combo-fetishism promotes mashing and leads to highly unfair unfavorable comparison between non-FC clean scores and FC boofest.

- Runs on flash, which means at least occasional lag

- Lacks some highly desirable options that SM does have, such as changing orientiation of the arrows to distant or hallway.

If FFR would change to raw score scoring system and add some more options to settings, I'd certainly choose this game over SM.

I smash keys again, sort of

I wasn't getting much fun out of SM anymore, so I quit. Then my computer crashed and I lost my huge library of SM song folders. A few months have passed and my fingers are itching again. I think I'll give FFR another try. It's been a while.

The huge combo-fetishist scoring system, the almost inevitable boos, the lack of flexibility in choosing arrow perspective (distant?) and, most of all, the choppiness and lag of flash on my laptop with windows 7 add up to a lot of frustrations, but I might just play a bit anyway and see how it goes.

Edit: Since so many new songs came out since I left, with many charts I never played in the new tier point list, I'm having a good time collecting new tier points. So far, I went from 135 to 309 in a few days. I'm trying to get to 400, but I'm running out of easy TPs ;)

Edit: June 2nd 500 TP
June 5th 550 TP
July 31st 600 TP
Sept 27th 700 TP


Also: July 2nd Here We Go unlocked (99%+ public songs FC'd)

No more in the tournament batch. If I can sneak one into the game in the event AJ needs a tiebreaker file of a specific difficulty, I will :P
But that's unlikely.

owww that's awful
and idk why those trills gave so many people trouble. i did not expect you to get out r2. ah well. kinda sucks how just one song or even pattern that doesn't play to your strengths can be the end of you.

Cheers man! It was actually Scarhand standard unlock with jelly roll blues since it just sits on a 58 diff. It was just one of those 'haven't played this in a while' moments and didn't expect the next 2 minutes to make my night :P I'm sure you could AAA it within a few runs.
