Default [Release] Night to Night (Super Eurobeat)

Hi everyone!

I haven't released a simfile in almost a decade. I recently found my old external hard drive which has ALL of my old steps on it, and I found a few gems in there that I had not yet released. I went and revised the steps, and would like to present to you the first simfile I have worked on in what seems like forever.

In case you don't know who I am, I have been around FFR since the early days (hence my August 2003 join date) - back when Nima was king of Stepmania. I used to make simfiles back then, but they were not very good. I like to think I've made a lot of progress since then. I hope you'll enjoy this release.

Song Title: Night to Night
Artist: Susan Key
Album: Super Eurobeat vol. 114
Difficulty: 11 ?? No idea tbh
Download Link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zAe...ew?usp=sharing

Feel free to let me know what you think. They incorporate all my latest thinking as far as how simfiles should be made - which is essentially the steps should fit the music as closely as possible. I used to strive for technical perfection but that doesn't make sense with only 4 keys. Instead, I aimed to make the steps feel like the song. It is a bit challenging as it uses trills but I think you'll find them not too challenging if you are decent at SM.

Oh crap, I just realized I didn't post this in the Simulator Files forum. Could someone move it for me?

Had to mess w/ the offset slightly to get it on sync. (I'm on -1.197 in ArrowVortex)
1. How do you determine what note becomes a hold?
2. Long holds can limit the space of the other noises that u can step (e.g. can add some 8ths/16ths at around 10.009).
3. 30.822,46.197,54.447, Why hands here? Do hands = louder sound OR cymbal hit?
4. Are vocals worth one note, or two notes? Are vocals + beat worth two also?
5. Weird left-hand bias at 37.197-43.947.
6. 1:30.447 & 1:30.822 didn't have to be hands.

1. Holds are based on a couple things, mainly it's if there is a note in the song that is sustained I will put a hold in for it. But it really depends on context. Sometimes I avoid using holds in a section because it feels better without, and sometimes it seems better with.
2. Yes I know. The holds were on purpose because SEB typically does not have a lot of 16ths going on, so the holds dress up the song a bit and add a little flare.
3. Generally it's for impact, I would have to look at the specific parts you mentioned but generally triples are for loud sounds and/or vocal + beat + drum.
4. In this case they are both, I chose one section to only use one to switch things up a bit. It gets boring doing the same patterns throughout the song.
5. Yes possibly, I base the notes and patterns I use on the actual song itself. It also increases the difficulty a bit. Dunno what current thinking is as far as simfiles go but this was par for the course back in the day.
6. You might be right There were more hands in there and I removed most of them, could have missed a couple.

Gimme a break, it's been almost 10 years

Thank you! I'm glad to hear you liked it. The next one I am releasing will be just as good.
