Default Can someone write a script for easier single to solo conversion?

Hi dudes!

I'm interested in creating solo files in general, and have been for years. I have trouble trying to make them from scratch though, since it's just so much different from creating 4k files. So I found a way to make it easier for myself to create 6k files, and that is to convert directly from 4k files. Here's the problem though when I copy a 4k file to start converting for, the arrows are aligned to columns 1234xx, and i'd like instead for the arrows to be placed on columns x2345x. There's only 2 ways I can think to get a chart in the center like this, either to manually do it in ddream 1 arrow at a time move everything to the right by 1, or to open notepad, add a 0 before every every line, then go back and delete a 0 at the end of each line. The latter of methods is faster and easier imo, but I was hoping if a generous smart fellow could write a script to move the arrows to those oh so desirable x2345x columns.

i'm shit at programming but i slapped up something that seems to work. if you give me an .sm file i can run it through the program to convert it

also i'm a bit hesitant to actually send you the program itself mostly because it's not very user-friendly at all

bruh its like 5 lines

Code:
for each line in sm file
if line == "stepfile type" rewrite the string as solo or whatever instead of kb4
if line == notes, just take the notes and transpose it to [1][2][3][4][5][6]
wait no its less than that

Wait can't you just paste the 4kry file into the solo editor in ddream and select all notes and turn them to the right

i don't have like a list of stuff i know that i'll definitely want to convert to solo for certain, i'm kinda hoping for something i can download and use whenever the urge to create 6k hits x)
if it's the case i should send you stuff periodically though i can probably do that too o:

I feel like a straight conversion, especially using a tool, would have to be robust enough to take into consideration awkward patterns because a straight conversion will absolutely be ripe with awkwardness
I think what's happening here is that you're making charts that end up being way too hard for you personally, is that fair to say? chart something short from scratch, don't worry too much about awkwardness or pattern usage, and send it to me on discord. I'll look it over and give pointers

Default Re: Can someone write a script for easier single to solo conversion?

idk when I convert my 4key charts into 6key (I've done A LOT of them), I usually end up layering somewhat differently because of the column limitations of 4key causing me to selectively layer and omit/ignore sounds in a song.

The 4key chart acts as my framework, but I end up layering in more chords, notes, and so on with the extra 2 columns in 6key just 'cause I have the space to. I find that a lot of my 4key files end up being a lot more fun on 6key tbh, but then again, I always chart relative to my skill level in 6key. You'll basically never see me make a dense chordstream chart simply because I suck at chordstream and because of that, 98% of my 6key charts are chordsmash because I'm at least decent at that.

You don't necessarily have to chart according to your skill level, however it does give you good incentives for "friendly" patterning and layering choices, because then you can at least play and score well on your own file.

Kind of on the same note, when I was putting together the Solo Japan / Solo Rulz packs, I always sent all the hardest files that I personally couldn't score A or higher to people like ca25nada, LongGone, and Hazelnut to play test so they could give me constructive input on just how "hard" they are, since they had the necessary 6key mechanical skill. When I played the hardest stuff by myself, all the files were equally difficult and all meshed together into "mash to pass" territory where I have absolutely no fucking idea just how hard they are relative to each other, lol. In short, having the mechanical skill greatly helps your judgment on just how awkward and difficult something is.

actually it's not impossible to make a working 4k to 6k chart converter, i did it in boardmania. it had a couple issues, but nothing that couldn't be easily fixed with some conditions

or you can last resort and autogen in sm5

You don't even need a script, a simple regex will do just fine

Matcher:
Code:
^([0123M]{4})$
Replacer:
Code:
0\10
