note: songs have been synced two frames later than before at the request of users who seemed to be paying a bit more attention; please tell me if this is better or not

as usual, difficulties are kinda approximated and i'm willing to reason them up or down with valid points

FrainBreeze is off on Legacy without any offset for me. By probably the two frames.

edit: same for koi no.

Harder to say for exo. It almost felt right.

I logged on today and n-3 of my offset still left them perfectly in sync.

FrainBreeze is tripletity technical, man! Any tips for the AAA hoarders to help keep the timing consistent on that file?

hit them at least perfect or better if you want the AAA, consistently time your actuation to keep timing consistent.

nice files, although this new syncing made me actually use global offset when I've never needed to in the past lol

exo could be knocked down a couple pegs at least imo, nothing present in the file that's out of the ordinary for an upper-mid FMO (I was waiting for the bmah but the bmah never came)

This is what I found, where as the last files are fine for me. I dunno what the root of the problem is with the desync but it isn't the files; these files are definitely out of sync, probably by the 2 frames added.

FrainBreeze I feel might need a boost in difficulty, I think its generally a bit on the technical side for where its at, although for its low density this might be a reasonable compromise, but the jacks add some salt to it.

What game did Exothermic originally derive from? I can't remember, but I know it's from somewhere...
Also the chart is pretty fast-paced and technical but the good thing is that it's rather consistent and nothing is too out of the ordinary.

I agree but only due to poor conversion, 2 frame minijacks into jumps are annoying things to see in files around this difficulty level

I had to use global offset of 2 for these songs if I wanted them to feel on sync.

I got it down to 2 goods and stopped trying to AAA because of those jacks. I think there's one that goes 2,4 then 3,4 super quickly and I just can't do it. I can do the rest of the file after I'm warned up.

I kinda got the feeling it should be a 60 just from some of the difficult jack transitions.

yo exothermic is easy, definitely not an 84.. I wanna say 81 but even then it feels a little overrated.

Sorry to message so late after release. I was just so curious to find why BrainFreeze is so much off sync. Please don't do it again. It's irritating to change offset for every song

Plateauing doesn't really exist, if you aren't improving it means you haven't put in the effort needed to improve, or your effort has been misapplied. It's more of a problem at really high levels, but never totally concrete.

To address this, it's probably related to:

I've been saying since the end of the last official tournament that songs since the end of the tournament have needed a -2 global offset to be on-sync, and is only an issue within standalone and happens across all versions of standalone last I checked.

An offset change by definition is 'the drop', which many agree to be the most integral part of a song. mario changes his offset frequently because mario likes to make that beat drop.
Mario i was saying your frainbreeze chart is good. i noticed some of your charts lately were quite groovy. heze claims it is irritating for offsets to change, but for their not to be change would be lame and non-progressive i think. i think it has gotten to the point where people are expecting everything to be so linear and perfect, but that is simply not the way it is. you should be changing offsets left and right, mid-song, every song different. throw a wrench in the machine, man.

Are you high?

Edit: sorry about the offset, that's really out of my control. It was fine in DDReamStudio at the time, about 3 years ago if I recall correctly (!!)
