Default People who still use Stepmania 3.95 in 2021, why?

I'm an old fart and just use what I'm comfortable with using, and can't be bothered to make a permanent move over to Etterna.

I still do 90% of my charting in 3.9/3.95 — I use ArrowVortex for syncing and Etterna for play testing only.

This 6key pack I dropped two months ago was almost entirely done in 3.9/3.95 and it's one of the most polished packs to come out in a very long time as I put A LOT of work into it

I'm also old and lazy to make the switch as well. I'm also fairly outdated and I'm perfectly fine with that. I've been playing this game on Legacy engine, charting with 3.95 (DDream for variable bpm piano files), and syncing with DDream.

All the boomers on 3.9 say that Etterna "feels wrong" until you show them how to customize gameplay.........

I play 3.95 mostly out of nostalgia, but also because I solely play pad files and I have no real use for Etterna. The only time I play keyboard files is when I'm on FFR. As a result, I have learned that, on a long enough timeline, trying to play at a high level is more stressful than diverting. I'd rather play to have fun, and 3.95 provides that for me.
I really don't want to understate the power of opting for objectively broken and inferior shit as a means to cling to my childhood, however. In a vacuum, playing 3.95 over even Stepmania 5 is a curious decision indeed.

Welcome to FFR Proper.

I too am too old and lazy to stray from SM 3.9. I barely play anything other than FFR anyway so IF I HAVE to play a file outside of FFR and I just don't feel it in the Mania engine then I'll use SM.

Geriatrics unite!

For the people that still use 3.95, what theme do you guys use, and what does it look like?

I'm gonna take a guess and say that most of you use Staiain V10 or another one of his themes

For me, I use both 3.9 and 5. I have 5 running on my good laptop because so I can use the ultralight skin. I have a version of 3.9 on my Windows XP (yup) PC that came on this bootleg-looking installer CD. I got it bundled with a DDR softpad I bought off Amazon last summer. It works pretty well, and has a bunch of old pad packs from back in the day.

I edited the default SM 3.9 theme to make it look as close as I could get it to how it looks in TeRa's Made of Fire video. So pretty much I just got rid of the top and bottom boarders. I think it looks cleaner and also more like the ultralight theme imo.

If I'm not using that, I'll use like Xoon 4 or something.
