-[00:15.051] blue 8th here needs to be moved to 32nd a tad earlier at 00:14.963.
-[00:31.271 -> 00:36.330] Section here plays out a little bit awkwardly because the same amount of attention is being given to both instruments at the same time here, but can appreciate the L 4th anchors thatís coming out from it. Maybe a small fix at 00:32.841 4th to keep that beat to the left hand?
-[00:41.911] Could definitely use some more filling in particularly in this section after the 32nds, so that itís somewhat in comparison to 01:26.562.
-[00:50.283] Really like the pattern focus to the music here. Great choice.
-[01:21.853] 16th here should be moved a 32nd later to 01:21.940.
-[02:02.318] Music says that this really isnít a minijack here. If you want to keep it as a minijack, then I heavily suggest changing the [u] 16th here at 02:02.667 to something else for PR sakes, as it is way higher in pitch than the previous following one. Would be ok if you needed to place the 16th at 02:01.969 to a [R] position and ignoring the PR for that one to get a better PR range coming out of these.
-[02:04.411] Check your PR. Same as the previous [R] notes. Following 32nd should roll downwards from [u] column.
-Definitely wish there was a bit more grace note usage w/ the 32nds in the 2nd half of the outro that compares to the 1st half (starting around 01:57.085).
-Could use some cleaning up here and there, but fine to go in as-is.

-Probably could have cut the intro, as there isnít really much there thatís rhythmically inclined to the music, nor does the music itself take place in the intro.
-[00:11.658] Missing 8th. (Repeats at 00:18.058)
-[00:15.458] Holy jeez that is really quiet, but checks out.
-[00:24.258] Personal preference, this should be a single.
-[00:25.358] Another personal preference, would have liked the 16th to get carried into here, but would mean also carrying a 16th into the 24th trill at 00:18.758 as well.
-[00:26.258] Not really understanding the layering of dropping this note for a single now given that itís got an even higher relevance in keeping the beat in the 16th section. Kinda overlooked it in the intro.
-[00:32.258] Would have preferred 4th layering here tbh. The 1-2 gallop is powerful at 00:32.658.
-[00:34.758 & 00:34.958] Dropped 16ths.
-[00:36.158] Making note of 16th here. The patterning out of the [R] and into [24] here is powerful, but unsure if it is enough if fixes start being made to include missing 16ths in this section.
-[00:37.858] Correct 16th usage (comparative to 00:34.758)
-[00:54.358] Confused as to what the 12ths are being layered to here.
-[01:09.858] 4th here is also part of the jack. Would consider mirroring the [12][34] jumptrill after it to maintain a fair transition.
-[01:11.858] Missing jump.
-[01:19.458] Feels particularly messy, despite the separation of 16ths from 24ths for readability sakes. Might have to do with the 16ths after the 8th arrow (including the 8th arrow) carrying more weight on the bass than the 4th and the following 16th. Isolating them from one another may do the trick, but feels rough in general to play.
-[01:20.758] Ghost 16th.
-[01:26.058] Absolutely evil.
-[01:32.658] Could use a jump.
-[01:55.858] Lmao. Definitely not feeling the [R] column anchor here. Section doesnít play out much differently than what has already been made available earlier in the file.
-Missing a lot of 16ths in the first 2/3rds of the file, and would need a massive amount of cleanup to insert them. The dubstep portion of the song was handled a lot better than the first portion of the song, but needs a fair amount of cleanup as well in distinguishing PR & addressing missing 16ths in break sections.

-[00:03.522] 32nds here, not 48th gallops.
-[00:06.421] This 16th could be moved back a slight bit for sync. (syncs at roughly 00:06.410)
-Wow these notes look exactly the same as the ones I made for Oni
-I had to listen to this song again on 10% speed multiple times
-I actually want to die
-I would rather unironically listen to Whiteyís Ice now (Halogen hit me up).
-Conditional on the basis that these get fixed AND that Psychoangel actually wants to put more ebike charts into the game. Otherwise, itís a reject. I donít think the community could handle more than 2 ebike charts unless itís some sort of meme holiday and locked behind multiple token requirements.
-Gamma stop sending me ebike files to review.

-This is it. I give up. I am in Stepmania Judge Hell.

-I will continue judging this later, I am in pain from the first playthrough both physically and mentally. (This was on the 6th of July)
-(it is now 21st of July) ok judgment time.
-[00:27.685] 250bpm 16th js at this speed puts it only 5 bpm slower than Yamada Stream (Hyper Weaboo Vodka Shots). So, weíre already hitting low to mid 90ís on FFR scale in terms of playability here.
-[00:41.844] While PR here is fundamentally correct, these patterns are absolutely pain-inducing to play. Patterning here should definitely get reeled back for playability sakes. Itís just not fun to have to encounter this.
-[00:54.036] The extended right one-hand trill makes me scream but ok.
-[01:07.941] Hand goes here, same with 01:11.139.
-[01:22.244] Back-to-Back St. Scarhand jacks. (Theyíre bad)
-[01:25.444] This section plays out alright, thankfully given that the trills are split with jumps, and I like 01:32.644.
-[01:51.844] 200 bpm AIM Anthem choke longjacks. (Theyíre also bad)
-[02:03.844] 400 bpm split 1,4,2,3 16th stream followed by an abysmally amalgamated ending.
-Patterns in this file are extremely horrendous. Not a PR issue in the vast majority of it, just generally not fun to play when 75% of the patterns involved are taken from some of the worst offending patterns. Jacks need to be dialed back to trills, and trills/triplet staircases need to be dialed back to stream. I just donít think D7 or D8 wants to deal with the headache of trying to get a score on this which feels like a high 96 or 97, so itís a reject from me.

Judge Notes:

-[00:00.920] Consistently dropping the 16th here in favor of providing emphasis on the 1-2 jump combo. Seems fine.
-[00:14.587] Personal preference, just like the previous note with omittance of the 16th in favor of providing emphasis/not layering something that has little to no layering value on 100% speed, I would omit this 16th as well as subsequently similar 16ths (like 00:15.475, 00:16.364, 00:17.253, etc.). Provides some better rhythm flow to the chart imo.
-[00:50.142 & 00:51.253] 16ths here instead of the nearby 24ths in this stream.
-[01:00.475] Section here plays out somewhat awkwardly since itís missing a lot of parallel notes from instruments that synced with the guitar in the previous section (Like the 8th at 00:58.031 & 00:58.920). Structure could definitely be better & a little more clear as to whatís happening.
-[01:13.475] Missing 16th
-[01:15.142 -> 01:15.253] Missing 16ths? Not particularly sure as to why these were dropped. Might also be a good idea to include the guitar slide 16th at 01:15.587 as well.
-[01:32.031] Missing drum.
-[01:40.587] Should be a jump. Cymbal crashes land on both of them, and draws consistency attention to 01:44.142.
-[02:05.698] Missing 16th
-[02:11.587] Extremely satisfying speed for 16ths OHTís here. I really like.
-ok to go in, but some cleaning up is suggested.

-[01:04.354] Move this 16th earlier to the 24th position at 01:04.327.
-[01:10.905] Personal preference, I think accenting stuff here via 12th or subsequently at 01:11.225 would have been a nice flair option throughout the file.
-Surprisingly, for the difficulty curve that this file entails, I donít have much issue with it. Flows particularly well, no real cause for concern in the PR, very solid structure, I very much like it.

-[00:32.875, 00:34.657, 00:36.763, 00:39.193] Missing 16ths.
-[01:13.783] Understand dropping the hi-hats as was the situation in the previous section, but the louder ones like this one and one at 01:17.671 should probably get some attention.
-[01:26.339] Unsure of the reason behind the extra 16th here in the poly, but ok.
-[01:39.705] No love for the 8th :í(
-[01:51.612] 16th here is part of this melody break. Song plays it like a minijack coming out of the [12], but can be anything realistically for PR/layering.
-[01:52.260] Personal preference, going into a 1,4,1 minitrill reinforced by a [24] or [23] jump wouldíve been pretty banger.
-Needs a fix for sync, but outside of that, very gucci. Definitely some parts I probably wouldíve made harder than it currently is just because the upper difficulty curve of this file suggests that the lower band could use some fleshing out, but it works as it is.

-[00:19.568] Check your PR. Should be a down arrow, or left arrow.
-[00:27.454] Not the biggest fan of the way 12ths/24ths are essentially acting as a noise absentee note, especially with the audio picking up in pitch and not actually taking place as noise absentee as it gets closer to the drop. Can do without.
-[00:32.597] Missing jump.
-[00:33.454, 00:34.140, 00:34.826, etc.] Personal preference, would have enjoyed it more if there was jumps to these drums here. Thereís also an offsetted 16th drum that carries through 00:35.254, and 00:35.511 into the next measure thatís not given the attention it probably deserves.
-[00:34.826] Check your PR.
-[00:35.768, 00:36.454, 00:41.254, etc.] Missing 16ths. Should probably comb the file for these kinds of jumps in particular for these missing 16ths.
-[00:50.426] Missing jump.
-[00:54.883] Very nice section, really enjoy it.
-[01:08.940] Could probably use the 4th here, even if itís just a single.
-[01:10.311, 01:11.683, 01:12.368, 01:13.054, 01:13.226 -> 01:16.826] From my understanding, jumps are following drums here, but are a tad spotty in their placements. After 01:13.054, I have zero idea what the jumps are following to. Section needs some work on jump clarity/conciseness.
-[01:16.826 -> 01:27.797] Essentially the same section as earlier (at 00:32.597), so notes within that section also apply for this section.
-[01:27.797 -> 01:38.426] Check your jump placements. Missing one at 01:28.826. Layering is fine outside of that, could have used jumps on every 4th and also would work. Small suggestion in layering, try moving 8ths outside of jumps around so that they donít cause anchoring with the jumps unless they share a pitch with the jump, and see if that plays better. (Mostly speaking for situations where stuff like this happens but thereís no real context or reason for the patterning to play out that way):


-[01:36.026 -> 01:38.426] Remove 24ths, except for the ones at the very end leading into the [12]. Jumps at every 4th as the drums pick up, but drop the drums at 01:38.083 to let the 24ths do their thing, as youíre essentially already creating a flam with the short 16th poly in the 24ths.
-[02:52.140 & 02:53.511] Missing jumps.
-[02:55.568] Repeat section, repeat notes from 01:16.826 -> 01:27.797.
-Absolutely adore that ending.
-Very good song choice, but somewhat lackluster execution, with many small errors throughout. However, a large majority of those small errors are amplified because of repeat sections, so Iím fingers crossed that fixing them is a matter of repetitive work under a smaller band of errors. CQ. At least the repetitive errors, the 24th errors, and drums need to be looked at, and fixed for acceptance.

Judge Notes:

> Haha, ArrowVortex canít display the ť character properly. Might be worthwhile to change this to a regular Ďeí both for display reasons, and also for engine search reasons (Not many people utilize search function in FFR with a French keyboard or Canadian keyboard). No other issues found within simfile properties.
> No issues found within submission folder contents.
> Permission check Good.
-[00:27.827] Would have liked to see some more jumps in this section, particularly in music scale to chord changes like at 00:29.542, and 00:31.256. They are included after 00:35.536, so why not here?
-[01:16.659] Missing a lot of instruments that can be used here. It doesnít make much sense to omit it when that is thrown out the window when music picks up a tiny bit at 01:31.401.
-[01:42.846] Missing 16th.
-[01:57.966] Might have been better to take advantage of the double tom tap here to do a [12][34]1[24] instead of what is here right now.
-[02:06.726] Same reinforcement in terms of jumps as the note before this one. [12][34]
-[02:23.988] Missing the 24th here.
-[02:24.697] Did the timing for this change a little bit late here. The 16th is supposed to land on the 12th before it, given the bpm timing used.
-Given the difficulty curve of the file, and how empty some sections are with the omittance of some instruments, file needs a lot more attention to other instruments and additional layering. Thereís also a level of omittance in relation to what priority jumps assume as well, which creates a level of confusion when similar sections utilize them for being a little bit louder for including a duette of the same instrument thatís not immediately clear otherwise to the player. Essentially, beef it up. Stuff starting at 02:24.912 is where difficulty is sitting at.

Judge Notes:

-[00:26.363] Missing 16th
-[00:31.696] Missing 16th (see 00:39.446 for similar rhythmic pattern).
-[00:35.530] Ghost 16th (based on the level of layering with instruments thatís being done for this 16th section). Same goes for a following 16th after the jump at 00:36.196.
-[00:40.196] Similar ghost 16th to the same note above. Thereís a lot of instances where this 16th was omitted earlier in the chart that would also need to be filled in as well if you want to include these 16ths (example being like the one at 00:25.530, 00:30.863, or 00:31.696). I get that it's being done to prevent long trill chains. But at the same time, a lot of swapping hands or trill columns usually does the trick with what has been displayed here.
-[00:58.113] Feel like PR could be handled a bit better here. Itís 100% about the direction of the 1234 in the middle of the staircase. Could probably get away with just mirroring the entire thing.
-[01:07.696 & 01:07.863] 100% speed, and this section has a much different tone on how it wants to play out vs what was shown earlier in the song. Happens again multiple times in this section, like at 01:10.863, 01:27.030, and 01:56.696. Might just be a simple fix, or an overhaul, depends on how you would prefer to tackle it. Needs a general cleanup.
-[01:35.780] Could possibly use some distinction between the two jumps here, as they both hit at different pitches.
-[01:40.363] Personal preference. I like what you did with this section. I probably would have put a [34][12]3[24] going into that 8th jump, to take advantage of that drum hook thatís following into the 8th there. Happens again at 01:46.030.
-[02:10.780] People are going to hate you for this 24th roll at this speed. Super mindblockable as people can slide into a [14][23] jumptrill from muscle memory.
-[02:27.113] Compared to the previous note, this is alright. Doesnít last too long, changes into something less blockable after a measure.
-[02:32.113] oofiest of oofs. Nothing particularly wrong, just a lot happening at the end of the song.
-[02:44.363] With minijacks being the theme on the table in this last bit, this 16th should be a minijack, preferably not coupled with the jump, but with the 8th.
-[02:47.030] Also a minijack coupled with the 8th.
-A lot good with this chart, a lot that needs some cleaning up before going in. Donít like how abrasive the 24ths are especially nearing the end of the song (itís a real rough AAA-trap), but are fine as-is. Itís mostly the 16ths that are real quiet and were omitted from the earliest parts of the song, but being stepped later in the song, and some other levels of missing 16ths due to this that are of the biggest concern.

-[00:03.204] Fair amount of stress happening on the right hand here, most of it stemming from the transition from the 32nd roll to the minijack. Suggest moving this 4th here to left or down column to remove that hand stress.
-[00:03.776] Plays out a little wonky, but alright for what was provided. Probably would have liked it more if the singles in this section were cut down to the high-end of the sound effect happening here. One of them lands on the 24th at 00:04.109 (close approximation), the other lands on 00:04.300 (also a similarly close approximation).
-[00:06.062] Again, alright for whatís provided.
-Really enjoy the abstractness of the white note section.
-[01:22.062] Same sort of hand stress that was near the intro, suggesting the same thing here.
-[01:26.633 & 01:28.347] Missing 4ths?
-Interesting take on file structure, has a nice balance of colorization vs rhythm maintenance. Sílike a middle of the road accept for me. Not anything particularly glaring or brash to scream about.

-Intro kind of drags real hard in terms of length. Could use a cut just because of the difficulty in comparison and already being a long chart (meaning resets to get a AAA), but I understand that the intro is not the most agreeable with being cut with how it plays out.
-[00:51.839] No change in column preference here?
-GOOD GOD MAN that was amazing after the intro. Incredibly fun to play. The only pitfall for this file is the length of the intro. The following 3 minutes of play came and went so fast because it was just all-around catchy and fun to play.
