SMO how to: playing with rates (SM5)

Postby foxfire667 » Wed Feb 13, 2013 4:23 pm

[Disclaimer]: Playing on rates below 1.0 is considered cheating online. Please take this into account when playing with rates online.

Since no one knew exactly how to change StepMania to allow rates to be used on SMO, until I got some help and pieced it together, here is a tutorial on how to easily do this.

Step 1: Go into your StepMania 5's theme folder.
- If you know where you installed StepMania, this should be pretty straightforward. If by chance you don't know where your StepMania is located, Windows users can press the start button, click on "all programs", find StepMania 5, and click "open StepMania 5 program folder". From there you should see the theme folder, click on it.

Step 2: Download these metrics.ini files .
- The amount of code you have to change is fairly minimal, but since this is faster, why have you edit code at all? Here are the metrics.ini files for both the _fallback, and the default themes, all changed and ready to go.

Step 3: Overwrite your previous metrics.ini files with the new ones.
- Once you do this, you are ready to go! If you are using a different theme aside from default, you may need to manually edit the metrics of that theme to allow for rates on SMO. If this is the case, open your metrics file for the theme being used, and add in the code I show in red here. The code around it should give you a good idea of where this needs to be changed, since you should be able to use the "find" option in any various text editor to find this section in the metrics.

[ScreenPlayerOptions]
LineNames="1,19,8,14,2,3A,3B,4,5,6,R1,R2,7,9,10,11,12,13,SF,17,16"
Line19="list,Rate"
LineSF="lua,OptionRowScreenFilter()"
Line17="lua,OptionRowProTiming()"
Line18="list,Characters"

So now, anyone with StepMania 5 can play on SMO with rates without any hassle! If anyone finds similar ways to do this for versions I don't use (IE: 3.95, Open ITG, SM4, etc) I'll add them to this original post. Enjoy the rates guys, I know I will!

Bombastik, as I wrote in , I did that first in 3.95 but it didn't work online (works well offline though).

I assumed it was not allowed server side but now that I know that it's not that, I'll maybe check someday how to fix that. I'll report here when I do (could be a while though, don't expect it anytime soon :? )

Extremely helpful, thanks for the tutorial! Downloading the metrics.ini now, this is pretty sweet.

I would like to make a note/advisement on this particular topic. Since SM5 is updated a lot, you might want to be cautious of Step 2. Overwriting the metrics could break SM5 all together due to changes in the code itself. You are better off to do this manually if you can. Feel free to do Step 2 but if something breaks, you have been warned.
