|Save this to EffectDrive's |
This is a converter for pattern formats used by various free music video games sharing the same game system (I know there is a better description but I'm intentionally avoiding it here). It is not perfect due to the various restrictions either explicitly or implicitly imposed by games (e.g. 32nd or quicker notes, out-of-position perpendicular notes, new-style long BT notes and short FX notes), but I was able to convert some songs perfectly so it would be useful somehow.
The current version of the convert is only able to convert K-Shoot MANIA pattern to SDVXviewer pattern, which is also used as a part of EffectDrive pattern. Follow the following instructions:
example_ex.txt, to the left side.
#NOTES:in the second box in the right side, and copy and paste everything below that line to SDVXviewer.
example) to EffectDrive's
Drv\directory, and make sure that the following files are in that subdirectory:
example.drv(fill this file from the first box in the right side)
example_HARD.prddepending on your pattern's difficulty (fill this file from the second box in the right side)
*.prdfiles should be saved as Shift_JIS encoding and DOS newline convention. If you use Japanese Windows you'd mostly fine (just use Notepad), otherwise you should find a text editor with the proper encoding and newline support.
Due to the difference of difficulty system in K-Shoot MANIA and EffectDrive, K-Shoot MANIA's INFINITE difficulty is temporarily mapped to EffectDrive's HARD difficulty. You also need to manually fix
*.drv file to convert a set of patterns of multiple difficulties.
