TIMING is in effect

Timing is now in effect:

Timing is basically listed as a modifier, in chat and scores in red on the site when it is detected that a client is using more loose/lax judgement window settings in their client. This means they either turned their judgement difficulty to a value below four or manually modified their stepmania.ini fille or are using a version that is modified. Your stepmania.ini should be:

JudgeWindowScale=1.000000
JudgeWindowSecondsAttack=0.135000
JudgeWindowSecondsBoo=0.180000
JudgeWindowSecondsGood=0.135000
JudgeWindowSecondsGreat=0.090000
JudgeWindowSecondsMarvelous=0.022500
JudgeWindowSecondsMine=0.090000
JudgeWindowSecondsOK=0.250000
JudgeWindowSecondsPerfect=0.045000
JudgeWindowSecondsRoll=0.350000

Any higher values can result in TIMING results. If you are listed as timing you should insure your settings are correct.

If it is detected as TIMING you will not get experience for the song.

Using tighter (IE: higher judge difficulty or smaller values then above) you will not be detected as 'timing.'

Rules and Etiquette

Posted By foxfire667 On: 2012-11-22 09:19:57

Please read the posted server rules!
It has come to my attention that quite a few people on the StepMania Online server have been doing things that are fairly irritating to other users. Since this is the case, I felt that it was necessary to post a guideline of rules and proper behavior when engaging with the community in this server.

Please review this post on the forums here. If you use this server from now on, you agree to abide by these rules, and try your best to follow basic server etiquette. Being in constant violation of these fairly simple rules will result in punishment given at the discretion of the moderator or administrator handling the situation. Since the rules are now readily available to see on the forums and here on the front page, there will be no excuse for not knowing them.

If you feel something that should be listed isn't, or you have any questions or concerns about a given rule, feel free to reply to the thread.

SMOpack Season 1
To commemorate the launch of the new official StepmaniaOnline website and server, we are launching an official SMOpack. Over the next few months we will be accepting simfiles for judging. We are working towards creating a more competitive smo and will be selecting simfile packs to be a part of the ranking of players. This pack will be part of the ranking once completed.

To submit a file email it to "smopacks@gmail.com" with your username.

Server is now backed by MySQL

Corruption issues should be gone. The DB corruption was getting very bad. We tested the server a bit but there could be some instability during the next few days.
