Welcome to the 2nd Official FFR StepCon-- with a twist! It will take three rounds, and one month of vicious head-bobbing to officially crown The Iron Stepman. We hope you enjoy our many twists to come, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Sign-ups Close: August 2nd @ 11:59 PM (server time)

How it works!

Participants will be split into randomized groups for each round. Each group will be given a different song to step. You will be given one week to complete your stepfile to the best of your ability. Every round, half of each group will be eliminated and the judges will take 10 days to review the files before the next round begins; the best received charts move on to the next round, where all qualifiers will be randomized into new groups. All submissions will be available to play on the FFRMania alternate FFR engine.

The Rules:

- Do not collaborate with another simfile artist. Do not share or exchange stepfile downloads, screenshots, or feedback in any capacity. If you are caught cheating, all parties involved will be removed from the tournament.
- File must be stepped on [Hard] difficulty. No other difficulty will be accepted!
- Tasteful cuts to the length of a song using an audio editor (such as Audacity) is allowed.
- Your song must be submitted by the set deadline. No exceptions.
- Stepfiles must meet FFR submission rules.

If you want to submit files for FFR, please follow those rules. Or your file might be auto-rejected.

--- SUBMISSION ---
1. As an FFR submission, you must include .sm file in your simfile (If possible, including .dwi is recommended. You need Stepmania Editor[version 4.0 or older] to convert .sm file to .dwi).
2. Your file should be compressed with zip or rar format, and a folder is needed in your zip/rar file.
3. The name of the folder (and .zip/.rar file) should be songname (username). i.e. [Magical 8bit Tour (jimerax)]. The song artist's name isn't needed in the folder name.
4. The name of the artist of the song should be written in the .dwi file.
5. One file/one e-mail is recommended, but you can submit multiple files in one e-mail. Please note that if you send multiple files in a single email, and it exceeds the 120 files we receive, then we'll randomly choose your submissions. You need to include only one file in a .zip/.rar file (do not send multiple simfiles in ONE .zip/.rar file).

--- SONG ---
6. You can only use songs that we have permission, so check it on permission thread before you step/submit.
7. Use MP3 format for the song file. Bit rate of the MP3 should be 128kbps at least, 160kbps or higher preferably. If the MP3 meets bit rate requirement but the original sound quality is bad, we may require a better MP3.
8. If you only use a part of the mp3 for stepping, cut unnecessary parts of the mp3 to reduce the size of the .swf file.
9. The interval from the beginning to the part you put the first note of the song should be 2 or more seconds. If it's not, insert silence in the beginning of the song (or some notes in the beginning will be cut). If your accepted file doesn't have enough length of silence in the beginning when it's needed, your file will moved to conditional queue. If you don't know how to add silence, refer to this thread.

--- SIMFILE ---
10. Graphics are not required. You should not include cdtitles in the submissions, having banners and BGs is ok but these just increase the file size. If you want to add BG in the .swf ask us after your file is accepted, and we will judge if the BG is appropriate.
11. Multiple difficulties (only 1 difficulty/1 file allowed), Freezes, Mines, Rolls are NOT allowed, so don't include them in your submissions. If you want to submit multiple difficulties for one song, submit them as separated files.
12. The difficulty should be one of these (Light, Standard, Heavy, Challenge). Don't use Beginner and Edit.
13. Hands (triples and quads) are allowed, but be careful for not using hands too much (especially on easier songs). There're many players who generally hate hands.
14. You can use any (4th - 192nd) notes, and BPM changes, but you cannnot use stops.
15. It should be a simfile that is fun to play for you and others, goes well to the song and captures all its themes and variations and has been confirmed to be on sync on a low music rate.

Submitting Your File:

- Your folder must be labeled as: "songname (yourname)"
- To submit your stepchart, send a zipped folder as an attachment to ffrstepcon@hotmail.com containing the following: the folder given to you, containing both .mp3 and .sm files.

Welcome to the StepCon finale!

In video gaming, a final boss is commonly referred to as an opponent that is seen at the end of the game, and is generally far stronger than the opponents the player has faced up to that point. Final bosses usually have their own special music tracks that are more dramatic than the music for the other bosses.

Group F:

Venetian Snares - My Love Is A Bulldozer

http://www.mediafire.com/download/2d...+Bulldozer.mp3


Group G:

Protest The Hero - Palms Read

https://www.mediafire.com/?6h0ytmjdxtt7gq2


Group H:

kradness & Reol - Children’s War

http://www.mediafire.com/download/g2...en%27s+War.mp3



Groups:
However, few video games let you choose which final boss you face at the climax of your journey. We are asking you to create the best stepfile you can, it is only fair to offer a selection of three tracks, in their final form. Choose wisely, and may the odds be ever in your favor!

...oh, and every group will be judged together.

Why the hell not, I'll give my stepping a shot at this, it's always a good way to learn what I'm actually capable of.
