The note charts of the songs (other than the banya revivals) are all made by Ward and his chart programmers (some of them being JasonDread and WinDEU...I am sure there is more...I don't know the rest thought :P ). Only the Andamiro songs have charts made by Andamiro (minus the Added charts and most of the half doubles).

I LOLED IRL!

On another note, I kinda have mixed feeling on the half-double notecharts that were in the videos as I honestly thought the main idea of them was to help newer players adapt to playing freestyle and nightmare modes.

I dunno if that was the idea, but doing the center part of doubles is the hardest part to grasp really, and those I linked up are like the boss songs of half doubles (I am sure there are harder, and I am positive there are DEFINITELY easier ones than that)

Half-double is an interesting mode that I really would like to see them fully revive. Several newer nightmare charts are actually half-doubles. One application is to acclimate new doubles players, but it's also just a fun mode of play. You have roughly the same "travel" that you'd see with a singles chart. There isn't much running from one side to the other like can happen on full double charts, so it feels more like playing single. However, the stage layout is totally different. You have a total of 6 panels arranged in yet another pattern. Think of it as single play but with a stage layout not DDR or PIU like. That's about how it feels. There's a little bit of lateral motion that you don't get on a true single chart, but it's pretty minimal, and there's a whole lot of weird (but rather fun) twists and turns. It's a great mode that highlights one of the stepchart aspects PIU likes to tinker with the most.

If you want to have some fun on half double, play Mexi-Mexi [A] NM or Deja Vu NM (but not the another). Both are actually half-doubles that do a pretty good job of highlighting the funs you can have with the mode.

If you find this funny, you're a nerd.
If neither of the above apply, you are normal. Congratulations.

Not to mention My Friend Nightmare is a pretty awesome half double.

here is the song list and it's difficulty of the half doubles....it looks like it ranges from 2-13 (out of a 1-15 scale). And X-treme was rated a 13 so it technically is a 'boss' half double chart.

This is part of the reason I bust out Premiere 2 regularly. There's some really fun half double and division charts that don't show up on any other version.
