Can you give me specific examples ? Either from actual files or just made up sections ? It's hard to get into details without concrete examples.

PS: I already have computed the manipulatable sections mostly. That's dealt with by accounting for the number of frames you have to hit singles as jumps (1 frame being harder to manip, 2 frames is most likely a jump). As for stamina, I explained a basic framework for it; what would you disagree with ?

Edit: I also disagree with "it's not incredibly far off"; far off what ? The only thing the current system can hope to reach is optimal subjective consensus (as in the most people who agree with the difficulties). While that isn't a bad metric per se, it is inevitably flawed and biased, and doesnt solve the problem: variable decay is still just a decay, it doesnt fully compensate for chart structure, it just covers cases where the distribution of ordered note difficulty ressembles one unique function with a modifyable decay. The truth is there can be many more shapes to that distribution.
