3 Recently Re-discovered SM Files For StepMania
« on: May 01, 2012, 12:26:28 am »
I apologize if this is in the wrong section

So I got curious and decided to see if any of the files I uploaded to the stepmania site were still around.  Since the "update" of the website, I quickly discovered that the search feature was renamed to "recent", and the search engine itself always throws up whenever I try to specify a search.  But luckily I managed to find 4 SM Files that I created back in 2010.

These SM Files were basically completed demo files for a W.I.P. pack I had in mind.  A sexy SM Pack containing backgrounds and bg videos of sexy women.  During my "torrent crazy" phase, I discovered a huge pack of dance/techno music videos featuring sexy women dancing (some of them were even the actual artist of the song... example: Angel City).  Basically the bg videos would be scripted in the style similar to DDR Extreme 2, Supernova, Supernova 2, ect...

The pack is a little over 50MB because of the videos, but there's nothing I can do about that unless you want crappy quality (and i highly doubt that you do, lol).  I'm uploading this pack for 2 reasons... 1. I noticed that a small fraction of the members here actually know what StepMania is.  2. As a result, I had an idea in mind.  If the people that try out my sm files actually like them, and if there's a big enough number of people that wouldn't mind playing more of my creations, then I would definitely consider going back to making SM Files again.

Song List:
Call On Me - Eric Prydz: 1-2-5-8-x
Dark Side Of The Moon - Ernesto vs Bastian: 1-1-3-6-10
Star To Fall - Cabin Crew: 1-2-5-8-x
Touch Me - Angel City: 1-2-4-6-9

All comment's, suggestions, and ideas are welcome.  And if anyone want's to start an Omnimaga Sm File pack with me, let me know, it could be another project idea :)

Oh nice, I'll have to check those, although I know most of those songs already lol :P

If an Omnimaga simfile pack is ever done, however, it would have to exclude any copyrighted song (although if you made a cover of a video game song it's fine).

Well depending on how many TIMGUL members join the forum, we could always make a TIMGUL pack instead.  Not only would it get the TIMGUL artists some exposure, but it'll bypass the whole copyright blockade, lol :P

That could work too. Of course someone would probably have to create simfiles of my songs though, since I have no clue how to auto-generate a song step pattern and don't want to create one manually. I'm thinking for example my song Return from the Forbidden Lands might fit well for that type of game or maybe a shortened version of Xaminaga.

I'd have no problem doing that, it'd give me a chance to brushen up on my skills anyways :P

Cool. Also if you would ever need backgrounds for the SM Files, I still got some of the original project files with layers and all, so if needed, the logos and stuff can be moved around.

As soon as enough people get interested in this idea, I'll definitely consider that idea
