Default Re: Scoring Data in Brutal Difficulty Range

I dont think a perfect rating system can exist, ever.

Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses which affect the difficulty of a song viewed by them. Some people think songs are easy while others think the same song is hard. I have pretty much a better score on every 86 than i do on the 85's for instance. I feel like they could be switched and still be fine.

I'm not really sure that its possible to win in this situation. I see that OWA mentioned Punkture and that it could be a 98 but since jacks are my strength i feel like thats way to high of a level. Ive gotten to the end with a low SDG fc multiple times. Ive also SDG the ending in multiple runs. my score on it isnt the best, but ive gotten better PA 1 or 2 miss runs. Compared to other 95-98s my score on this song is quite good.

If you guys could figure out something that works better that would be sweet, but i think its near impossible to get it perfect.,

A 16th roll at 300bpm starting on a quarter note can effectively be jumptrilled because the one frame gaps all coincide between arrows hit with the same hand (1/2 and 3/4), but offset the roll by a 16th and now all the one frame gaps appear at 2/3 and 4/1. Having to account for quite literally the same pattern being variable in difficulty depending on the starting note, on top of everything else that needs to be taken into consideration...I personally wouldn't want to invest any time in that.
Could you elaborate on this ? I'm really not sure what you mean there.

Also, the calc I have works on .swf, not on .sm, so the whole conversion point is irrelevant; the difficulty is computed with the resulting converted chart.

Charts like Husigi where over 90% of the notes are understandable at a much lower skill level than the difficulty rating would suggest, but mastery of that last < 10% requires being able to play the difficulty range they sit in.

The decay should change according to how hard is getting a reasonable non-AAA score in the spiky section(s), and how hard the rest of the file is to AAA.

Anyway, an approach like Dynam0's formula is probably the most pragmatic solution. My suggestion would be trying to operate over the raw numbers of goods and then using the formula that already exists.

For instance, if the current formula is f(x, A) where x is the raw number of goods and A the current AAA-based difficulty, change it to some f(g(x,B),A).
g(x,B) being some formula where g(x,0) = x (I) and g(x,B) > x for B > 0 (II).
A simple example would be g(x,B) = ((5*x)^(1+c*B))/5, with c being some arbitrary constant to make the range of B suitable to show in the game interface (preferably an integer), and the 5 factor being there just to avoid oddities with 0.2~0.8 values.

(I) - So that by default any song would have B=0 and keep the usual formula
(II) - So silly stuff would be assigned some appropriate B value as needed to force a faster decay

I think this would be fairly intuitive to work with but I'm too lazy to test it out

On a side note, making a general difficulty calculator is trying to solve an even harder problem and trying to make inferences based on the inevitably noisy results.
While I don't think making one is a lost cause, it's way out of scope for what FFR warrants.
