The truWIP ThoughtPosted on: October 27, 2013, at 05:29:04am
Nobody reads these but I'm going to put it here anyway. Here's a few WIPs I'm stepping for FFR, in order of the likelihood of them actually being completed.Bandwagoning - self thoughts on file(z) in FFRPosted on: April 21, 2012, at 01:38:09am
1. (Finished, submitted) Samus Bubblebath - Shnabubula
My baby. It's slow jazz but has one section near the end which will make the difficulty spike. The challenge then is trying to keep the difficulty consistent. I love this song so much. It's literally like sex. Just what is she doing in that bubblebath? ;)
2. (20% complete) Astral Body - Between the Buried and Me
Best album is best. Best band is best. Awesome song is awesome. Fantastic live band confirmed.
3. (10% complete) The Dreamer's Overture - JT Bruce
Maybe, maybe not. It'll be difficult to keep it interesting over 5 minutes. It doesn't really make for a very difficult file, which is primarily what makes longer files interesting.
4. (50% complete) Primitivism - Glome
Iffy at best. I could toss it together say if the tournament needs an emergency jumpjack-ridden mid-70s difficulty file. Not in any hurry to care about this file.
5. (0% complete) Telos - Between the Buried and Me
This song deserves a kick-in-the-balls hard file that I'm not overly confident about delivering. The last time I made a really difficult file (Trisection v2) it wasn't received overly well and this song needs that difficulty. I can certainly see the how I might like the file to be put together but it's the execution I'm not certain about. Perhaps a good choice for a collab with somebody?
6. (20% complete) Two Shadows Appear - BrainCells
Repetitive. Good practice for slower jacks so far though. No real solos to make the repetition worthwhile. Needs a cut at least.
7. (15% complete) No Such Thing as the Promised Land - SGX & sephire
One hand a la Let's Go. I should really try to use slower music for one hand files if I want to make that a thing.
1. (5% complete) Secret Santa File
It'll be difficult for me to do, but at least it's not dubstep.
2. (10% complete) Feed the Horses - Thank You Scientist
One of the stronger efforts I'm making to expose some neat-o artists through the medium of stepfiles. Song can very much be polarizing though - you'll either love it or hate it. The current difficulty I'm having with it is determining whether or not some parts suffer from blue note syndrome. Also like 6 minutes long.
3. Gossipo Perpetuo - Jean-Jacques Perry
Can trumaestro sync straight 16ths? Tune in next time, same bat-time, same bat-channel.

Nightrain - FUCKING FINALLY. The first batch I sent this to dates back to early 2009. Original version was considerably more dense and layered than the in-game one by about 100 arrows, but the in-game one is by far way more fun (seems the community thinks so too :D) The first part of the song mostly follows the guitar with layered drums. The difficulty in the song comes mostly from the middle section with layered piano and whatever that harmonic instrument is. Then the end kind of combines the harmonic thing, guitar and drums. Full song is about 6 minutes long.
Trisection v2 - Kind of a dump, but a much needed one. Originally it was a complete dump - the jumpgluts were handgluts, the 24th stream was more densely layered with drums and there was an ugly polyrhythm from a 16th jack in the second last 24th part. I toned it down A LOT and kept refining it, and boom, accepted. Some elitists might prefer any one of Yesssss' charts, but I knew the jack style chart wouldn't fly with the judges, and I'm not him (however much I may try to emulate him...). I still feel that I did this amzin song the justice it so patiently waited for and I like the result. Frankly that's all that matters.
Let's Go - Quickly stepped because of how simple the rhythms are, yet extensively playtested to cater specifically for one-handed players. Spread players will notice that the patterns are kind of wonky but it's only because of the one-hand thing. Currently pretty much the only file in FFR and one of the only ones period stepped specifically for one hand; we'll see if there will be more.
Feelings From the Air - My favourite song from the one artist I've stepped the most. The overlayered dumps in the Stepmania scene do not fit this song at all, so this easier version should strike a few chords with people familiar with those. Nice and simple file, nothing complicated, just the way it should be.
WiLD PLANET - Every good step artist steps an OSTER Project file somewhere along the line, right? Here's mine. In a similar vein to Nightrain, this is a rather technical file but is not quite as dense. Still has some funkyish elements to it that I really enjoyed listening to and stepping. I'm extremely happy with how this file turned out. It's the most fun file I've made since Kirby Pack 2. And to think I was uncertain about the layering through the entire thing.
Umlaut Ampersand - I'll be honest. I did not expect this to get accepted. The song is just so weird and the file is equally weird. The one 64th roll sticks out like a sore thumb but it is accurate. Definitely the weirdest file I've ever made. I guess it's pretty much supposed to be weird. This was released before I sent in fixes but I suppose they would have been minor.
