Yes, BPM changes are allowed.

And make sure that Tass sees proof of having permission.
Yea I dont know how to show it but I went and got myself permission I made sure of that and one artist asked that I include the homepage and the myspace if I do get one of his songs up so thats the best proof I got

How do I add those extra two seconds of silence in? Most songs start up right away.

Use the F11 and F12 buttons. You need to make sure that the song starts EXACTLY on the first beat tho. When in stepmania hold ether F11 or F12 and then put a fourth note on the 2nd measure.

Slow the song down to X.7

and keep testing the song until it starts EXACTLY on the beat. (to make it even simpler use the song options in the ESC menu and turn assist tick (ON))

So it's the steps that have to start two seconds in and not the song itself?

Yes. You can put steps before that, but they will get cut out by the FFR converter I believe.

I'm still a bit confused here.

What if my song starts on let's say the 6th measure (6 seconds in at 60BPM?). Do I still have the F11/F12 thing start at exactly the 2nd measure (2 seconds in at 60BPM?)?

Also is it supposed to be positive or negative?

You only NEED 2 seconds of no notes before you put notes in. You can put more than that, say 6 seconds, if you wish. The gap can be positive or negative, depending on where you want the music to actually start.

Can someone give me a working example of this?

EDIT: I see song name and ffr username but what about artist name? And can I have spaces?

The artists name goes into the dwi.
You aren't included in the .dwi at all. I don't think.

How do I put the artist name into the .dwi?

Also do I just delete the other 3 files that I have in the folder?
