DDR

BTW, amherstbelle got the last song on my meme.

DDR GirDDR blue arrowOkay! Tonight, I got to a new level on DDRMax2 Light Endless. Not a great job on combo with 505 max. The awesome news is I got past Xenon at Stage 44 all the way to Stage 53!! The whole time after I got past Xenon, I was thinking, "There aren't that many songs left, sooner or later, I'm going to hit Afronova or Maxx Unlimited and that will be that." I figure Maxx will be last on the list. Afronova I think, I have played three times, and only once on my own system. Take a look at the step chart. It's 200BPM, loads of air, and if I could make it through the first 71 measures (I got thru 15, but the first 6 are blank), there are those green 1/16 notes (1/16 notes occur 0.075 seconds apart at 200BPM. Ack! So I guess I'll have to train it and practice it. I am getting pretty good at the 1/8 notes from all the Standard Mode I've been playing. I've already got AA's on Let's Groove and Put Your Faith in Me. Yeah, that's a tempo change in Let's Groove (not that bad really, it's exactly ½-tempo ;) ). I've also got A's on Dream a Dream, I Need You, Keep on Liftin', Love at First Sight (Kylie!!), and Think Ya Better D (which if I remember right, I got on the first try [sight read]), as well as a few B's and C's. Yay, me!

OMG! I am becoming a DDR freak! Well, at least I'll have company tomorrow. :)

Damn, girl. I'm going to be a pathetic little no-skill compared to you tonight. :)

We'll just mostly keep me on light mode. I would be mostly ok if it weren't for front/right, front/left, back/right, back/left combo steps. My eyes and feet haven't figured out how to bypass my brain and just do them yet. :( And I am bad at the fraction steps. And I've been playing in workout mode, so I haven't been seeing any freeze arrows either. So... um... I'm pretty lame.

But it will be fun to see how good you've gotten! :)

Actually I was figuring out how to recognize the corner air immediately. It all has to do with where and how the arrows are grouped. I think of the corners in terms of the compass, NESW.
There are only six airs:
<--> forward facing spread (separated both sides)
-v^- front back spread (grouped middle)
Those are easy.
Then you've got:
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<v-->') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

Then you've got:
<v-- SW (grouped left)
--^> NE (grouped right)
and the split ones.
<-^- NW (split left)
-v-> SE (split right)

I'll show you tonight. It makes these a lot easier.

BTW, I trained Afronova Light last night after this post, and I got a full combo on Speed=3 (80%?), and I'm getting there at full speed. I just have to remember where the awkward transitions are.

Oops. That last comment thought I was puting HTML in ;P.

Also, if you want to bring another version we could try that, too. I'm getting too comfortable with most of these songs and want to mix it up a little. :)

Hee hee! That directional thing might help me out. We'll have to practice it tonight.

I'll bring the other version, but I tried in the night before last and it's tolerance for error is very low (for me!). We can give it a go, though! I do like some of those songs quite a bit.
