Random Thoughts
Strolling through memory lane

Most of the threads from 2006-early 2007 (MORE THAN A DECADE AGO WTF) are still there, in brag board/FFR General, and on a whim I've been perusing them the past couple days.

The verdict: life was good.

If I ever pretended for a moment that during that gap year of mine this site and game didn't occupy virtually all of my waking interest; well, it did. I don't even remember what else I did that year. It was just the FFR year, and it was awesome. I don't regret one second of the time I spent here. I think most people go their whole lives without ever having the kind of respect and admiration I had back then. I would never have admitted it at the time, but for a shy kid like me that feeling was pure euphoria.

Not to say that life isn't good now. It's still good, just very different. I was 18 back then. I'll be 30 in two weeks. I "have a life", as that term is usually used--a job, a wife, kids. But you know what? I "had a life" back then, too. As the 'about me' indicates, I was genuinely happy--and you can't beat that.

Thanks for the great times, FFR. I'll never forget you.

Thoughts on my files
Posted on: August 9, 2009, at 01:58:33pm   [3 comments]
Hi19 did something like this ages ago, and I'm bored, so I'm going to too.

EHHS - A large part of this file was constructed by literally adding arrows to Rebirth's already existing SM file. I originally made the file for my own amusement (used to be a big fan of jumpstream) and found it fun, submitted it for laughs, and somehow it got accepted, since there wasn't really a judging process at the time. Everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) hated it at first because it was an unreadable mess with red-note syndrome and no speed mods...hatred toward the file softened a bit when I fixed the red notes. 24ths are obviously a mistake, but otherwise this is surprisingly still sort of fun for me.

Hungarian Dance #5: Stepped before BPM changes were allowed. Pretty awful file all-around =( oh well.

Strangeprogram: I always liked to think of this as an "improved" version of DTM's SM file. Today I'd never step something like this, but if I did it probably wouldn't turn out all that different.

KlungKung 2004: I don't like those staircases I end most of the sections with...I used to be really proud of this, but now it seems pretty generic.

GGC: Stepped without BPM changes, which took like two months. Some of the patterns are really annoying and I personally don't find the file much fun, but I guess some other people like it, so whatever.

Kick Your A: A couple blatant errors here (two ending rolls, first 8th jumpjack), but not that bad really. The stream is oddly satisfying to play, and I still don't know why.

Classical Insanity: I still don't understand why some people hate this file. A couple minor errors but overall I think this is one of my better ones, especially pre-2008.

Rottel-da-station: Easily my best file pre-2008 IMO. I got lucky. Nowadays I'd probably make an inferior file to this song if I stepped it >_>

Vertex Beta vrofl: Captured the NVLM touch quite nicely, I think. I really did enjoy watching this on Autoplay in SM, hahaha.

Vertex Beta: FFR lacked a 200 BPM stream file, so I made one. Many people either didn't understand this reasoning or didn't agree with it, so reception to it was pretty negative. As I predicted, though, it became a very, very commonly played file. Newer players like lolstream. No regrets =)

Holy Orders: Best file I've ever made, probably the best file I'll ever make. JX didn't want credit, but he really does deserve a lot for the numerous technical fixes he made, and this file is really more or less a collab in spirit. Still very proud of this. A worsened SM version was in the FFRCP2, worsened by holds, which in hindsight were pretty badly used, oh well.

Momentary Life: I really, really wish I'd changed those left-mini-trills to something else, because they really ruin this file for me. Otherwise, though, it's fun, and still better than my '06-'07 files IMO.

Brandish Headless: I'm especially proud of this file, mostly because I managed to make it distinct from Zagh's excellent file, which I'd played zillions of times, yet still fun and accurate.

Night of Fire: First SM file I released. Overstepped and awful, although I still get a kind of nostalgic joy from playing it nowadays.

Rhythm and Police: Pretty decent for my second file ever, really. (EHHS was third). Still my file with the most downloads, somehow >_>

Death Piano: My only SM file that really made it into the "mainstream" SM world, which I suppose automatically makes me proud of it. Like GGC, it's not that fun for me, though. I still haven't ever passed it, by the way...I'm terrible at that stupid pattern right before the end trill. XD

Sakura (pad): I really wish I could play this on a *real* pad, cause I think it would be fun. I still wish Konami had released something like this instead of the wimpy Oni chart they included, but oh well.

Six: Heavy has some dumb mistakes, Oni is not actually a 22 (20 is the right rating). Other ATR songs are much better, as I discovered later. Not terrible, I guess.

Brandish Headless (pad): The 9 proved to be *really* fun, somehow. Silly charts, though.

One More Lovely (pad): Boring as shit, bad pad file.

Two Weeks: I wish this was more popular, because I think that the Heavy (formerly Standard) chart is my second-best file (second to Holy Orders), but I think everyone ignores it because there are two harder difficulties and they want to feel mAnLy, and those aren't that great. Oh well.

Terminal Strike: Pad chart, though I never got to play it on a real pad. My first time using mines, since I made it before Two Weeks. Pretty happy with it, makes a fun index chart.

That's about it...I plan to step Chiron, another ATR song, once I get headphones again. I don't ever plan to step another non-rock song, by the way.

My best AAAA ever

Also, they've got a Supernova machine now. Xepher Oni is my new favorite pad chart of all time, 20 greats is my best so far =)

You're my favorite FFR Player (even though you're not active anymore). ^.^ I know that you've said Klung Klung 2004 was one of your best stepped songs at first, but then you thought it was generic, but I still think it's really fun and it's one of my favorite stepfiles. :)
