Anyway, >>22, listen to me here. It's not really related to the thread, but whatever. So, I went to /jp/ the other day. /jp/. The place was packed and I couldn't get a post in anywhere for some reason. Then, I notice the header up top and I see "Otaku Culture" written on it. "Are you stupid? Are you idiots?" I thought. You don't just come to /jp/ for otaku culture, you fools. It's otaku culture, O-T-A-K-U CULTURE for christ's sake. There's even groups of friends here. Out for some /jp/ with the bros, huh? How fucking nice. "LOL anime is so weird!" God, I can't bear to watch. You people, I'll give you otaku culture if you just get out of /jp/. /jp/ ought to be a more violent place. That tense atmosphere where a flamewar could start between the guy on the other side of this shitpost at any moment, troll or get trolled. That's what's great about this place. Normalfags can fuck off back to reddit. So anyway, I'm finally about to start posting, and then the guy next to me says "2hu with extra flanfly". I lose it again. Look, flanfly isn't funny anymore around here. Dumbass. What are you looking so smug for? I want to ask him, "do you REALLY want that flanfly?" I want to interrogate him. Interrogate him for an hour. Are you sure you don't just want to try saying "flanfly"? If you ask a truneet such as myself, the best meme on /jp/ now is hoopdog. Thats right. Hoopdog with seven hoops. This is the truneet's way of posting. With seven hoops you get maximum replies, but the thread blows up. And then, its a shit. A big one. A grat one. However, there's a chance you'll get marked by meido from then on, so its a double-edged sword. I can't recommend it to newfags. What I mean by all this, >>22, is that you should just stick to the wch2hu thread.

Caught my in an instant >>66. I stumbled on FnF and tried it out in curiosity, then quickly heard about Stepmania in discussions about that game.
Stepmania being an open source game that relies on its community for content, I had to do some digging to find songs and maps that weren't aggressively technical. Even maps said to be easy often opened up with a dense flood of notes I couldn't read. After finding appropriately newbie friendly stuff, I was actually able to start learning common patterns and how maps are built.
It seems, for Stepmania in this case, the notes are set to some part of the song, it's just that designers often pick parts of the song that have a bunch of notes to play, especially for hard songs, but this is still true in "easy" songs. I have a mechanical keyboard, so I can actually hear the stuff I play matching with the song...though this doesn't make it anymore welcoming.
With all that said, I ended up having fun, and my interest in the genre increased.
