I was going to cut out Brandon's face and put it in that picture above yesterday, but I'm on Meg's Mac laptop and don't know any programs on this piece of crap.

Well, the machine I did it on now has a completely broken accelerator, so I guess I'll have to find another machine to play on if I want to improve upon that record.

So, apparently I can still play PIU...

Dignity [Double] (Infinity 23, which does appear to be the Exceed era Nightmare chart) - B w/ 89 misses. No, it was not a stage break pass, but it sure as heck beats my old record.

I went back and played a little bit of Pro and it's amazing how much of a chore that game is compared to mainline style rules. The emphasis on exact timing, requirement to attack holds, gauge fail always on, etc. makes it really feel like you're doing something you "have" to do, rather than playing for fun. It's too bad Latitude is such a crappy place to play at night once the bands come on which they, unfortunately, do at inconsistent times.

Yep, I can still play Pump. It seems that i'm almost back to where I was in my peak approx. 2007.

Not hard, but an FPC is an FPC.

Yep, still hard. Also a surprisingly acceptable score. There's definitely been some rating inflation over the years. This is nowhere near as hard as Dignity, which used to be a 22 (and is now a 23).

I think this is the first A I've managed to eek out on it.

Bang the "option" (little red button) while the grade screen is up. It will save it to your USB flash drive.

This only works on the Stepmania-derived versions (Pro, Pro 2, Infinity), not mainline. I don't think there's a way to do a screenshot on mainline, but I could be wrong.

I didn't think I'd ever pull that off. It's still not a great score, but an A is an A. I managed to combo the triplet run.

This is not a 26..

I don't know what it should be, but probably not quite 26. I shouldn't be able to pass a 26. OTOH, I don't think I could do much better on this even with a lot of work. That score is basically nailing the not-stupid parts and flubbing through the rest.

Yea, having seen YeehawMcKickass play that (which consisted of both me and his girlfriend having to hold the platform still as the stoppers were up) was hilarious.
