My plans for this set are based on the ones I've worked on for other Dance Dance Revolution games, as well as wolfman2000's set for Dance Dance Revolution: 4th Mix (PlayStation) , which shares its game engine with Konamix. - Achievements for clearing any song and chart for a particular difficulty level, 1 through 9. 5 points each. - Achievements for unlocking new songs, for every 5 songs cleared. 5-10 points each. - Achievements for clearing each song with a full combo (only Great or Perfect marks) on Single or 6-Panel Maniac. 10 points each. - Achievements for clearing each official Nonstop course. 5 points each. - Achievements for clearing any song with the Flat, Shuffle, Hidden, Sudden, or Stealth modifiers active. The Flat achievement must be done on Maniac difficulty; everything else will not be tied to any particular difficulty. Except for Shuffle, these will be disabled in 2-player modes, so the player cannot cheat by looking at the notes on the other player's field. 5-25 points each. - Achievements for reaching stage score, total score, combo, and consecutive Perfect milestones. 4thMIX/Konamix, like 2ndMIX/Club Version, use an open-ended scoring system which increases geometrically with higher combos. 5-25 points each. -- The scoring system is described at http://aaronin.jp/ss3.html. - One achievement for getting all PERFECT marks on any song and difficulty (excluding Beginner). Since PFCs are incredibly hard to accomplish in general, these will not be required for every song, pending any possible bonus sets in the future. 25 points. - Achievements for clearing all songs with an B rank or better on each style (Single and 6-Panel) and difficulty. These will be collection-style achievements, tracking how many songs the user has completed and unlocking on the last one. Inspired by the "Dance Master" information pages in later DDR titles. 50 points each. -- In 4thMIX/Konamix, "B" grades encompass what would be A and B in other games, so this is a little more lenient than similar achievements I've made for other DDR games. If I have it right, A and B grades (and C and D, both displayed as "C") are still counted as separate values behind the scenes, but this is not apparent to the user, so I will account for either value. -- Certain songs, namely the ones which debuted in Club Version, 5thMIX, or Konamix itself, do not have distinct 6-Panel charts and instead recycle their Single charts for this mode. These songs, listed below, will not be counted for their respective Dance Master achievements. --- ABSOLUTE --- AFRONVA PRIMEVAL --- AM-3P (303 BASS MIX) --- DIVE --- Diving money --- Do It Right --- DXY! --- GENOM SCREAMS --- Healing Vision --- Look To The Sky --- MATSURI JAPAN --- ON THE JAZZ --- Patsenner --- PERFECT FREE --- R3 --- Salamander (Beat Crush mix) --- THE EARTH LIGHT Other things to note: - Turning on the Little modifier (simplifies charts by removing 8th and 16th notes) will disable all achievements. - Likewise, setting the Game Level (i.e., Dance Gauge behavior) below 4 (medium) will disable any achievements not related to combos or unlocks. Other modifiers or options will not affect achievements. - Achievements/leaderboards involving total scores will require the maximum stages be set to 3. - There will be no achievements tied specifically to Versus or Double modes. These can be handled later on in a separate Multi set. djlain Joined Jul 18, 2021 July 1 2022, 3:31am Great job!! Personally I'm always hoping there will be more solo 6-Panel mode related achievements for 4th / Konamix / EXTRA MIX, because they're the only 3 versions with solo mode on PS1. So it might be better to change the require of maniac FC Achievements: FC every song on Single and 6-Panel Maniac (except the 17 recycle charts). Otherwise there are only Dance Master Achievements related to solo mode, and getting B grades might be too basic for this unique mode. PsyHunter29 Developer Joined Nov 17, 2021 OP July 2 2022, 1:55pm Thanks for the enthusiasm! I like your idea of adding FC achievements for 6-Panel mode, so I'll fit those in. Also, since Nonstop mode in this game supports up to five stages at a time, I'm thinking of bringing back the higher combo achievements (i.e. 500, 1000) from my DDR USA set. djlain Joined Jul 18, 2021 July 3 2022, 10:32am Thank you for adding 6-Panel achievements!! It's a glad to revisit the solo mode, surprisingly fun! PsyHunter29 Developer Joined Nov 17, 2021 OP July 13 2022, 9:19pm To all, the achievement set is now in Unofficial status for testing, and everything else is live. (I'm wondering if I should bother with holding them back from Core just for open testing. Pretty much the only reason I do it is because of how my first set as a junior developer went.) wolfman2000 Developer Joined Jul 17, 2021 September 5 2022, 11:09pm Almost every developer has one of their junior sets go under a lot of scrutiny. Just ask me about Jeopardy. :P Honestly, you should be good to release the set Psy. PsyHunter29 Developer Joined Nov 17, 2021 OP September 22 2022, 11:29am I know I've been silent on the RA development front for a couple of months now, and I'm sorry. My attention's just been elsewhere, on other projects. I still have a bunch of sets that have are pretty much complete but sitting in Unofficial all this time, for no real reason other than me being lethargic and a little scared to get back into the swing of things. But, I figured I might as well promote this set to Core before my claim on it expires. So I did. djlain Joined Jul 18, 2021 September 22 2022, 1:08pm Thanks all your wonderful works! Take all the time you need please, real life is always more important! valkyrov Joined Feb 15, 2015 September 6 2023, 3:49am Everything works fine except for game and solo mode. After picking a song in those I get a black screen and nothing happens. Doesn’t freeze the emu, but I do have to reset the game to try again. This happening to anyone else? Any suggestions on a fix?
