Server has reached a new milestone!
The server has *just* passed 100k songs played. I honestly must say I did not expect it to happen this fast when I decided to revive stepmania online a few months ago nor did I think the site/server would have come so far when I decided to use OpenSMO as a back-end/base for the site.New Features:
Finally the server-side judgement has been completed and tested. The server now judges as if you were J4 regardless of what judgement level the client is set at. If you stay at J4 you should not notice much of a change. If you play at a high level of judgement there are some cases where toasties can be slightly harder to get and slightly less jump XP but it should only be a few notes difference if anything at all and only at very high judgement levels.
Because of the above change the grading is now done server-side as well. This means everyone gets standard grades which is based off the 3.95 default which is MAX based. This also means that since it is calculated on the fly (not sent by client) You will not immediately see a D grade when you get a combo breaker but instead will see what your grade would be if the song ends there. This means your grade can fluctuate down *and* up, IE go from AA -> A and then back to AA again.
Password Changes. I know a few people either chose bad passwords or messed up when creating their account so I have now added on the site the ability to change your password. Its listed near the logout button or you can do it here:http://stepmaniaonline.net/index.php?page=changepass
You can now view 'room' or 'game' pages so you can see who you played with on that game (like the old original SMO).
Near the star icon (where you could see your best results) there is a VS button whcih shows the 'game' results. Only entries since today will have room information otherwise it will list N/A for the room title, description, owner, etc...
