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 2014 500 TP
June 5th 2014 550 TP
July 31st 2014 600 TP
Sept 27th 2014 700 TP
Feb 19 2015 New TP system, 1114 TP

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

I don't think I've ever experienced frustration on such a level. That token drove me insane. Any tips for Nanairopanda v2?
