Nobody reads these but I'm going to put it here anyway. Here's a few WIPs I'm stepping for FFR.Bandwagoning - 8th Official Tournament LogPosted on: January 30, 2013, at 05:36:03pm
1. Primitivism - Glome
Yeah. Deal with it. One of the criticisms about Trisection v2 was how some parts missed a few opportunities to make it even harder. So. Jacks. Hands. 24th trills. Giant jumpstream section. Aiming for the maybe high 70s/low 80s in difficulty (guessing..). Not holding anything back.
2. Step it Up - x0-000
Ehh.. Not too sure on this one. It's done, but it's at a difficulty I'm not too certain if it's just outright boring or not. Might send it in anyway or convert it for one-hand.
3. Samus Bubblebath - Shnabubla
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. I'll need to get permission as well though. I'd release this for SM if the artist declines permission.
4. Feelings from the Air - Glome
I didn't forget about it! After the last batch and realising some of the consistency problems that it had I'm tempted to start from scratch. I've done a lot of fixes but I need to recheck and see if I think the file is good enough. It's on the back burner for now though.
5. Duncan Hills Cover - Metaljonus
Probably a lost cause. Again the difficulty consistency thing comes into play here. I'd also need to sit down with DDReam and sync it better. We'll see.
6. Jet Set / Trash Glamour Rock Chick / Blue Stahli / Other songs - Blue Stahli
This guy's music is fantastic. A lot of it would make great easier files. It's much more difficult to make a good easy file than a good hard one though. Some of these I might give up on, while others might be able to be stepped for one-hand in the same vein as Let's Go.
7. Something god damn it - SGX
I want to step something by SGX. Suppose we could use a Crowdpleaser v3 or a Runny Morning v2 or a Amity v2 or a 4F73R M3 v2 or or or... Maybe I'll step True and convince SGX and FFR Staff to put it in as Tru and then it'd be hi-larious.
8. Token OSTER Project song
It's a wild secret but not really shh
D4 again, what a surprise.. Starting this a little late so oh well. For this tournament I'm going to try using a standard dell keyboard instead of my flat keyed microsoft keyboard that I've been using since the dawn of time. Also trying to get good scores in between work, which recently ramped up, and working on :masterpiece fiel: for FFR, permission pending, and TF2, of course.

-Swing / complex rhythms
-Patterns that make me question the stepartist's sanity
Round 1 - Touch Me - 5-0-0-0
That boring part in the middle where it's just triplets really made me lose interest, and then it's all "lul do this 32nd shit". Probably wouldn't have been too hard to AAA, but I didn't have the time to play it more because of work. Just went with a score that would keep me safe.
Round 2 - Walk on Water - AAA
A god damn masterpiece as far as I'm concerned. Simply a fantastic file, though listed a bit high on the difficulty (nowhere near as dense or hard as Nightrain..) A few tricky rhythms to keep you on your toes, and plays into my strength of swing too :D. Got the AAA after choking a few times right at the end. The file I'm working on is somewhat similar to this, so I'm taking notes.
Round 3 - Slam the Door (Rogue Remix) - AAA
Not too shabby a file. Files like this fit into so many of my strengths (slow jumpstream, slow jacks), it was frankly only a matter of time before I got the AAA. Glad to get to the next round, though totally expecting a swift kick in the balls.
Round 4 - Quark - bunchofbullshit
This file hits every last one of my weaknesses. With work becoming more frequent as of late, I don't really have the time to whore it for a good score either. This is where my tournament life ends. GG

wtfBandwagoning - self thoughts on file(z) in FFRPosted on: April 21, 2012, at 01:38:09am
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.
