Despite it being ugly as hell, there was one reason I used CyberiaStyle over other skins back on 5.1: it had a core option to automatically change the displayed difficulty of charts based on the difficulty estimate from Edit Mode.
I am desperate for this option to come back with official support, maybe with different options for difficulty scaling (Old DDR, ITG, New DDR) and display support for decimal points in chart difficulty (Showing a song as something like an “8.65”, for example).
Old-heads like me who haven’t ever really played newer arcade releases prefer the old rating system, and I’m sure current arcade players like the new system; I don’t want to have to go in and modify each chart in each file individually, nor do I have the skill with theme editing to create a feature like this myself. That being said, I don’t know how challenging it would be to implement additional difficulty scales.
Additionally, I adore the new (at least to me) trio of metrics featured in Outfox on the song select screen in place of the classic Groove Radar, showing “Complexity”, “Jumps”, and “Flow”, and was curious if the team had considered adding the numerical value used to calculate these metrics overlayed on top of the graphs. On the default theme, these spikes are a little small/shallow, so a number would go a long way, at least for me, toward comprehension.
The progress on 5.3 is stellar and I’m looking forward to future releases!
