10th Official Tournament Thought or whatever
Posted on: October 4, 2014, at 02:08:48am   [0 comments]
Honestly lucked out being put in D4, after a round 2 or 3 (forget) exit in D5 last official. I think I have a good chance to place high in this tournament, even without needing to skill boost much.

I haven't played much fiffer in the past god knows how long, but I seem to be able to get reasonably consistent scores. My old weaknesses are still there and my old strengths are still there. We'll see how this goes.

Round 1 - Fill Me Up With Snacky Happiness - AAA
Got the AAA on my second playthrough. Not a big fan of the file, actually found it boring. Can't have planet karmas for every round though right?

Round 2 - Flame Repellent - AAA
Cool file for round 2. Unlocked Scarhand [Standard] with this because apparently I hadn't done that yet even though I know I got a AAA on like Nebula [she] and Cosmic Orchestra to name a few. Had a few mindblocks on some of the streams. Also had an issue with my keyboard sliding around everywhere. Might be time for an upgrade...

Round 3 - Plousia - 3-0-0-0
Mindblocks all over the place. Didn't care much for this file. Tried to fix it to get the AAA, but just going with a score that should be safe to get to the next round.

Round 4 - Poinsettia - 13-0-0-1
Extremely dense jumpstream at a speed somewhat comparable to EHHS. Probably won't be able to improve on this much.

Round 5 - Electric Butterfly - fuck it
Nope. gg

2nd Official StepCon Thought or whatever

Round 1 - Group B - Wheelpower & Go
(FFRMania Engine B1)

Pretty much completely bs'd the solos, just like everyone else in the group. I'm actually far more proud of how I did the non-solos than anything else in this file. I probably tried to make it to Mad of Fire like though. Not my best work, and not a song I would normally choose, but if I spent more time on the solos could probably be a nicer file.

Round 2 - Group E - Spinal Fluid Explosion Girl
(FFRMania Engine E10)

Went for a very simple approach on this one. The vocals were the worst thing to try syncing. If the song was in English it may have been a bit easier, and I would at least know where there should be a syllable. Looking back I see a few spots where I did miss syllables. I'm extremely happy with how this file turned out though.

Round 3 - Palms Read

This file may end up feeling a little rushed and that's because it is. I had to finish this file on my 6 year old laptop while out of town. It can just barely run ddreamstudio. The song probably demands a more complex file than this, but I just didn't have the time to make it so. It follows pretty much the same structure through the entire song, but it's a tried and tru method. Sort of. I guess. Didn't even have a chance to playtest this file so who knows. Maybe not the best choice of cut for this song, but I feel it's the most logical.

Bandwagoning - self thoughts on file(z) in FFR

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.

Time to Sleep - Short and sweet. Middle section is somewhat boring. For being the first file I've pumped out in a few years, it's pretty good. Reminds me a bit of my Kirby files from 2010; simple, 16th patterns, nothing fancy, executed well. Just add jumptrills...

V2 - Needed. The minijacks help to distinguish this from the ancient SM file. Not much else to say. Nothing fancy or really of note here. Still find this one really fun to take on in the end section. Climax theory is definitely my favourite thing in VSRGs.

[Queue] Tell Me a Story [Prolixity Mix] - Really proud of this cut. I decided the Compendium Mix file in FFR was lacking, and that Prolixity Mix was the superior song overall, so it's kind of a v2 I guess? The cut starts something like 30 seconds in, chops out a whole pile of the middle and leaves in the awesome end climax. Basically turned Prolixity Mix into Compendium Mix. The file itself is very burst-y with generally friendly patterns, mild colour theory, and the end climax is ..end climax-y. I like this one a lot. SGX was the first and pretty much only artist I started following directly because of FFR, and I had wanted to step something from him for ages. This is just a small piece of appreciation to him for helping introduce me to a wider world of electronic music.

[Queue] Control - Proof you -can- spend 5 minutes on a file and get it accepted. You just need a bit of knowledge on how to make easy files, and to choose energetic music for it. This helps to fill a hole in FFR for energetic easy files, but being the easiest file in the game kind of robs the song of much of that energy.

[In Progress] --Huge Marathon File-- - This one is turning out way better than I expected! And easier to step than I had thought it would be! But it's going to take loads of time to finish. The 4500 notes it's at now is roughly 5/6 of what it'll be at the end. It's somewhat meme-y. But I'm just following directions!

I am working on more, it's just.. finding a suitable song and sticking with it through to the end and and and and and

so i won 25k creds

lol saw that in the thread. I honestly think it doesn't need fixes, it's different but quite fun to play.
