PostSubject: Random songs, but from several mixes...   Wed 21 Feb 0:12

Here's a weird question:

Is it possible to make courses with random songs/settings that include multiple song folders, but not the entire library? I was trying to adapt the courses with Starlight (specifically the Another / Hyper) to try and encompass all the Dancing WipEout songs, not just Starlight. But I don't want to put all the Dancing WipEout songs in one folder - I'd rather keep all the mixes intact.

Short of dumping all the songs into one folder and specifying that folder for random selection, is there another way to accomplish this?

That gives you the first stage of [mix 1], the second stage of [mix 2], etc. It *should* work, but I can't guarantee it. ;P

It's Dancing, not Dacning, by the way Wink

I know I can get random songs from one of the mixes that way (i.e. I can choose to get a song from DW Rebirth for the first song, DW3 for the second, Starlight for the 3rd, etc), but what I want is to get 4 or 5 random songs of a difficulty similar to the "another" type (7-9 progressing to 9-10 for the final song) where the four or five songs are chosen at random from any of the Dancing WipEout mixes. I tried putting it in as "Dancing WipEout *" for the folder of songs, noting that * in many of the lines seems to denote a string variable, but that didn't work as intended.

I know I can dump all the dancing wipeout songs into one 300 or so song folder and use that folder name for random songs, but I don't want to do that because a) it would mess up the scoring records for all those songs and b) it would mess up the nonstops / onis specifically designed for each individual mix.

Does anyone know if it's possible to do this?

You need to create a .crs with what Kreton writes :
(name of mixes are just an example, do in the order you want)

Quote :
#COURSE:Random WipEout;

#SONG:Dancing WipEout Rebirth\:*:MANIAC;
#SONG:Dacning WipEout 2\:*:MANIAC;
#SONG:Dancing WipEout 3\:*:MANIAC;
#SONG:Dacning WipEout Starlight\:*:MANIAC;

Actually, it's impossible to include multiple folders. It's one folder, or all library, but not a range ...
Maybe a possible new feature in SM 4.0 CVS ?
