    OMFG after reading this i remember seeing my friends playing this game on PS2 and i'm like "WTF is that?"

    Reminds me of Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc, between stages that you would be surfing or something doing this in i think was a secret stage.

    Oh I remember I got a this on a demo disk that came with my PS2.

    This game will be completely complete if it has custom song support.

    It has, but you need to create them yourself, which is kinda complicated.

    omg, the memories with Frequency on the PS2.

    It's like Ouendan, but just a little more complicated [​IMG]

    This. Game. Pwns.

    The main thing it needs is more songs, but the best way to do that with a homebrew game is really to make a tool for making custom layouts for your own songs.
    I guess that you also have to convert MP3s to .ITs to put them in the game, right? I searched google for a program that does this, but to no avail...
    [EDIT] I checked the AmplituDS forums and apparently there is no way to convert from mp3 to .it >_< Oh well...

    you could try to convert the mp3 into something that could convert to .it

    Apparently converting from .wav to .it creates rather large .it files, which AmplituDS doesn't like. I don't think you can convert .mp3s to anything that will convert into .its besides .wavs.

    Try getting 2 stars or more for every stage on every difficulty. You'll get a nice bonus.
    And no, .mp3s can't be converted to .it.

    I get an error. It says it can't find the files... something like amplitude/assets/textures/bluebottomright_tex

    (I'm at work and that's from my memory of trying to get it to work last night)

    I have the patched amplitude.nds and the amplitude folder on the root of my R4. What am I missing?

    You're not missing anything.
    It just means opening that file fails for some reason. (Not my fault though. ;p)

    Two possible solutions.
    - Format or defragment your card and put AmplituDS on it again. Might work after that.
    - Check "/amplituds/smb rmx/settings.txt" and change the word "blueflash" to "clouds" there. Save the change. That makes it use another background and hopefully those files do open for you.

    I know that there is a fifth song, but five songs still isn't a lot [​IMG]

    But seriously, something that makes it easy to make your own tracks would be the best way to get more songs.

    I realize that, but I'm not sure there is an easier/faster way than currently available. And it's not that hard to create a stage as it is, honestly. Just takes a bit of time.
