Flash Flash Revolution: The App
 
So guys, I am currently in one of the only app development classes in the world (as far as I know) within my school. I was thinking that because FFR didn't have an app of it's own, I was thinking of making an app that let's you access;
  • Your profile
  • Forums
  • Song Info
  • Level Stats
  • Gambling Hall
  • Song Shop
  • and probably more!

Things you won't be able to do... just because it would be impractical;
  • Play the game
  • Change background (depending on the format chosen)
  • and probably more, as me being in class does not give me much time to think on my own and freely... in class I get about 48 minutes to work on whatever.

Sadly you would not be able to play the game... but at the same time, I don't think anyone would want to play RATO on an IOS device. It's almost comical.

I want this to really be a thing, but I would be working on this for a really long time and don't know when it would be finished. I'm currently in school and working on this, for now, I have to plan out what is NEEDED and what is WANTED. I would like feedback on how you would all feel about this being a thing.

Once I get back home, I will be able to elaborate more on this, but I just wanted to get this stuff out there so I do not forget.

Make it so we can access the video database so I can show my friends easier.

read this as "i don't know how to do this so i won't even attempt it"

It's impractical to play the game on IOS, being that some songs are hard enough on a computer. I can do background, but that will be a latter thing I will add, not in my priorities.

I don't give up easily, but at the same time, I don't like to waste time on something I have nearly no clue on how to do it, when I could work on things I DO know.

bluetooth keyboards are a thing

you couldn't play ffr on iOS anyway because it doesn't support flash

Unless a new engine is created that is supported by IOS.

Call it ffr community or something like that. Profile chat MUST, replays MUST. Access to games chatroom would be nice but you'll have a near impossible time implementing the first two.

Talk to ffr dev maybe they'll give you adequate information/access to make this possible. I would like to see it done but, it would honestly be useless without profile chat as I can do everything you listed more than adequately on safari...


Good luck

whether we can play the game or not on it, i think its pretty cool that he's going out of his way in the first place to try and make this app. i say go for it, and good luck :)

EDIT: like what mr_candy said, it would be very useful to have profile chat in there. very nice suggestion.

I could include a Rhythm game aspect to the app, but It would be something that would be a more than one person team project, I can do the app, but rewriting an entire Engine is not something I can fathom right now.

I am sorry for using RATO, but it is a real thing that people try to FC, and those who try to AAA. Also, i don't think many would be happy only having about 3/4 of the songs available to play.

I was just having a discussion with a group of people how the usage of Apps or even how most of them are a "Cookie Cutter" for the next App to come out, is completely asinine. I personally would never use any such app, because it's more reliable to just sit down at a computer for ten minutes and check anything I need.

one of the things that is wanted is for the app to be available for android too

Facebook on my phone, why? Because I want to access facebook when I don't have a computer available...... It's the exact same thing here....

Profile chat is definitwly an agreed must, though the hardest part. not including the rhythm game part of it. I do think replays/videos are also a must, and one of the easier parts of the app. Just a reminder to everyone. I AM THE ONLY ONE WORKING ON THIS, I AM A ONE MAN TEAM! i'm even getting shit from my fiends who play this in school... And i got a detention for being off tast on my Ipad, writing in these forums, that is how dedicated to you guys and gals... dancers...

not sur how to make it Android friendly. That would have to be from someone who knows about that to work mith me, now or after I finish.

Talk to arcrmx he's an app developer iirc. The profile chat with access to the back end would be pretty simple for him.


But yeah to make this remotely decent you'll need heavy involvement from ffr staff otherwise you will end up with something no1 will use

I've never owned a phone in my life, because I personally hate phones, and this is my opinion, so of course it'll be wrong in other's eyes.

In terms of making FFR an App, it would be very weird and uncomfortable to adjust to because FFR has been a website for the past 11 years.

Re: Flash Flash Revolution: The App
 
Yes it would be wierd, but I want to contribute to this community as much as possible. Change and development is necessary in all things, and I think this is the next step, that is not a new engine or a new website format. We can branch put durther with this and make it an even bigger community!

あああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああ

and where can I contact arcrmx and the devs for info, and which dev do I contact?
