hey cool pack. i really liked it overall. just played through 95% of it on 1.0 so here are some random, unorganized thoughts. mostly things that bothered me because they're what i remember more.

both of the blurk files seemed a bit offsync if i'm not mistaken, except skalman seemed to get back onsync halfway through.

Axolotl Throttle was absurdly fun considering its difficulty.

there were a couple of files like Boss Battle where there are extended sequences of longjacks and interesting glut patterns making up the meat of the file, but then you'd also have chunks of smooth, boring JS in sections where you could easily justify more jacky stuff with the percussion or main melody or whatever. it's not like what's there is objectively wrong or anything (still a sick file), but i think that it would have been cooler and more consistent with more liberal jack usage.

Hand in the Fire has really bad difficulty curve issues and just unfun jack transitioning in general. i think this was the only file that i was actually strongly tempted to quit out on.

Hydrangea is incredibly fun and varied and definitely my favorite file of the pack.

come on seriously that long trill thing in I Feel Fine...

Jashin no Konrei made me sad because of the audio quality and because i thought the layering could have been much harsher due to the intensity of the song, but it was a fairly fun file regardless.

Off Limits could have maybe been cut imo just because music like that tends to feel monotonous after a while. if not that, i think that the one particularly gay right hand biased section in the second half could have been reworked to be less of an obnoxious spike. That said, it was still a really fun file to try to MA for me.




in r u still Xxxx oni this right hand transition into the 64th burst is really gay and it is the only thing that made me mad in this otherwise pretty cool file.



a lot of my issues with the files i didn't care for that much involve difficulty spiking or isolated gay burst patterning, but in most cases it wasn't bad enough to ruin the file for me.

other files that stuck out to me as being particularly enjoyable:
Area A
Constant Motion
Eyeless
Magical Sanctuary
Sengoku HOP
Visions

why would you order the files in the pack folder by simartist name rather than song name jesus christ aaaaaaaaaa

now you kids might not remember, but this is how we used to organize packs a decade ago. I prioritize simfile artists it's just a habit (even blurk submitted his file in this format)

12 gayge pez dispenser - I'll rate this when I can beat it but for now it gets vsnarez/10
Abendrot - fun slow jumpstreams
Amnolys - a little too long and boring places
Area A - fun slow jumpstreams
Awakening the proifound evil - also fun
Axolotl - I expected it to be harder haha, I guess nobody puts 64ths to farts anymore which is good
Battle! gjratina - died
Beyond the seven - pretty fun
Bird - the biiiiiiiiirds. an old wip from like 2009 that I added 5 notes to and submitted hehu
Boss battle - 16th jacks/jumpstreams and 24 streams around this bpm is fun hehe, also jake kaufman/10
Constant motion - pretty good. I was annoyed by all the bpm changes on every note kept flashing at the bottom of the screen but that is sm5's fault
Drop out - a bit lacking imo. could've been a fun jump/jackstream file at that bpm with a little more notes everywhere


to be continue?

area A/10
hand in the fire, even tought its kind of a annoying file it was still super enjoyable/challenging
Hydrangea !!!
bird
battle giratina (love this kind of files)
magical sanctuay was an enjoy for the most part then not then an ejoy again
lost wingat !!! this flows sooo welll omg
eyeles, just making an enjoyable chart without cutting this song is worth much praise to me
one MC, one delay, not zappa/10 im always amazed in how you make enjoyable files/patterns from this kind of songs

but yeah, the pack is full of quality, from easy to harder files, will play this for a long long time

Sorry not sorry for the gay jump jacks on Hand in the Fire. Although I did that to match the intensity of the songs (And also stops because I've been experimenting with stops heh).

Anyhow from what I've played:
Innocent: Felt a tad dull for me tbh, although I did not expect a nightcore version of this wat
The Cat with 2 Heads: Ska/10 beautiful
The other OpKiller Nightcore file: Choked a AAA run rip. Fun file.
I feel Fine: I got meme'd on 1.3
Hand in the Fire: Not sorry for the gay jumpjacks Skwidward :U
Love Is Over: Probably my best file to date in terms of released files...close to Yunomi and My Party tbh...
Skalman Stage: Beautiful.

Anyhow, will play more oops

oh come on dude it's not the worst thing ever, but i wouldn't have pointed it out if it didn't affect me. it's not like the first thing i do when i download a pack is examine the file organization to bitch about it. the only reason i even noticed was because it interfered with something i was trying to do.

for example, if i just got done playing Hydrangea and i wanted to look at it in ddream or something to point out a pattern that i liked, i am not going to first think "oh right let me navigate to bmah!" because no one does that. in fact, just now when i second guessed myself on the spelling of the song title, i went to look for it and was like "OH RIGHT IT'S ORGANIZED BY SIMARTIST AND I DON'T REMEMBER WHO STEPPED WHAT EVERY TIME." when i was writing out my comments, this happened constantly. it's a pain in the ass to either have to use the search function or have stepmania opened to refer back to the cdtitle for every single file.

again, it's not the end of the world and the pack is great overall, but saying "it affects nobody" is kind of silly.
