I'm in college, and I've been playing a ton of IIDX lately, except I'm super limited when it comes to space and money. So I have ( probably the most ghetto setup ever.Collapse )
In fact I took a pretty long hiatus from IIDX because I had no room for it and/or was way too lazy to find the room. Now that Empress is out I'm playing pretty much every day, and after just a few days of Empress my back is KILLING me.
Which is why I'm wondering... If this community is alive at all... How do you guys get creative with your setups? Pictures plz.

In 1 hour, 20 minutes, Gay Goblin might land a spot on Daisy Of Love. You might know him for being ungodly good at DDR, or for being number one on VJ Army (DJ PAPSMR), or for being one of the funniest people in the world. He probably IS the funniest person in the world, so you should all show your support in the final hours... Disable your cookies, and vote, a lot.
There's a video of him playing RISLM remix with a condom over his head in there. So you know you want to vote.
|Konami is removing Empress videos from the interwebs!
||[04 Dec 2008|04:03pm]
I'm curious what peoples thoughts are on the decision of Konami to get videos of Empress removed from sites like youtube, and the account holders being suspended for hosting them. We're talking even people like doskioslayer, who was only putting up videos of songs that are in the game right now, no hidden songs. There are a few sides to the argument of keeping them up and legal reasons for removing them, but personally I think Konami is getting rid of good publicity by removing the videos.
Considering the fanbase in North America and Europe has no real way of seeing or playing Empress aside from these videos (yes I know it's not their target playerbase), there's a lot less hype when you rely on pictures and short clips of songs on random websites to see the game. The game is out, people are going to record videos of themselves playing, what's so wrong with that? I don't recall them having problems with recorded videos from CS versions on youtube.
I'm not really sure what the status of Nicovideo is in regards to Empress, but is it safe to assume that the same thing is happening there? Is Konami going overboard? Are they making the right choice? YOU THE READERS DECIDE. Or something. I'm just trying to create some discussion here since the community isn't used a whole lot!

NOTES & NEW FEATUES
- The new turntable that Konami announced at the location test appears to come standard with all upgrade kits, and is nothing more than the top piece with a better non-slip texture on the top. I can't help but feel that it would've been just as effective and a lot cooler if they made it look more like a real LP.
- There are apparently a decent amount of updates made to the e-Amusement score tracking service this time around. The most notable of these being the new DJ Data service offered on the e-Amusement website. This new service will apparently track your clear rate, full combo rate and score data for each on each difficulty and allow you to review them on your web browser.
- Internet Ranking tracking has also been streamlined with the e-Amusement service, with all results being viewable on the same portal site as your DJ Data.
and since i'm a nice person i'll give you a lineout (thanks bakke)
|IIDX GOLD CS Tournament at RGCanada Summer Conference
||[04 Aug 2008|12:01am]
Since this community has been quiet lately, I figured I should post up something IIDX and community related.
A few years ago, I made a post here about some IIDX tournaments I ran at a DDR Conference. I've been running them at every conference since (there are two per year, one in July and one in December) and some of the people I mentioned just trying out IIDX for the first time in Beginner tournaments are now great players and have repeatedly entered and made strides further in the game.
I said it in 2005 and I'll say it again now: If you want more people in your area interested in IIDX, this is how you do it. Running these has allowed random people who have never played the game to see it first hand, and to even try it since I run beginner tournaments for those who have never played, or played a few songs at most.
This year was no different, and GOLD CS conveniently was released just before the 2008 RGCanada (formerly DDR Canada) Summer Conference in Calgary, Alberta. Over the last few years, turnout by players who could enter another tournaments have decreased steadily. It was at the point where only two of us could enter it, so I sadly had to scrap another, leaving Beginner, Normal, and Hyper tournaments. Interestingly enough, this was the most interesting and most fun tournament I have run yet. There was never a clear victor (unlike how the another tournament always turned out, no offense to you Bong) in these tournaments, and some of the matches were extremely tight. There was even a tie on one of the songs in the Hyper division.
Beginner tournaments are extremely easy to run now, compared to when I had only 8th or 9th Style to work with along with their pitiful selection of "beginner" charts. GOLD CS has a strong selection of 1s that are extremely easy for anyone to clear, easier than 5.1.1. beginner was back in 8th CS. The songs are fairly rated between 1-3 and there are no clear overshoots on difficulty. With that in mind, it doesn't take long to get one together and run it (3 difficulty levels makes for 3 rounds), making it an easy choice for me to include along with the more serious tournaments in Normal and Hyper.
Below are the results from the tournaments. For Normal and Hyper, I've included Max EX Score for the songs to compare to the player's scores if you're interested (there were some nice scores in some rounds!). If you follow through the rounds, it's neat to see where some players excelled, then fell apart in others. Like I said before, some of the scores ended up pretty close too, plus it marks the first time a girl has won a tournament here! (Joscelyn in Hyper) Overall an awesome tournament, and I hope to duplicate its success in December.
EX Score was used as a measure for ranking, added up over the three songs per round. If you failed the song, 10% was taken off your EX score (except beginner).
My format for organization is as follows: Song Name (Difficulty - Max EX Score). If they failed the song, (F) appears by the score, with the 10% already taken off. I added one extra song in the final round of the normal and hyper tournament for the final two to play just to really push the difficulty. That's why you see four songs there.
( Beginner TournamentCollapse )
( Normal TournamentCollapse )
( Hyper TournamentCollapse )
Once again, big Congrats to Flaire for winning Beginner, Chris for winning Normal, and Joscelyn for winning Hyper! Because Normal had the most entrants, I gave away a little hard hat stress ball from my work to Chris for winning it.
It's good thing this was easy to setup and run, because I was quite stressed out at the time of doing this tournament as I was making the Final Round stepcharts for the ITG Tournament as well, which was eating up most of my time. We're on the IIDX Community, so I figure I can pimp out the Denjin K Megamix out some more since it's IIDX related and was made by members of the community.
Enjoy, and if you have any questions feel free to ask. :)
