Come on, acrox. Don't just drag him to the front page and make him fend for himself (after having to type out or cut-and-paste the URL because it wasn't linked). Give him the specific page he needs.

@bakon: Gaining another contributor would be a nice bonus for the FoFiX project (and this goes for everyone!). Don't feel put off by not knowing Python yet: many of us first learned Python by contributing code to FoFiX.

IMO learning Python's not the problem. It's like the easiest language to learn ever (assuming you already know how to program). The real problem is learning your way around the FoFiX source and its design.

True, the FOF code always was and still is poorly documented, but most of the stuff is properly named so with just a glance here and there you understand what's going on. The problems lie in when you're flipping through 3-4 different files just to see where it's getting the notes, reading the notes, displaying the notes, and taking input (song, guitar, guitarscene, stage .py's), there's a bunch of that kind of stuff.

i cant deal with that right now

hey guys i have an idea for multiplayer that prolly wont lag that much and will satisfy the masses untill u get a real online theres a way to play online threw system link i did this with diablo because u cant do mods on blizzard so i made a system link game but threw the intornet using hamachi and this would also work if ur friend came over and you guys could just plug the laptops together using ethernet or wifi and play that way or across the world threw a direct link(hamachi) also minumizing lag if im corect(also sorry i know my spelling is horrable)

Still requires the implementation of a lan multiplayer system if my understanding of your description is correct

Programming for LAN and internet is pretty much the same, except over the internet you have to deal with bigger latencies. And Hamachi won't lower the latencies, anyway.

Possible Expert+ for guitar and bass?

Idea:
once we get forced strums and ho/po going, the Expert+ difficulty will use the same Expert Chart in the MIDI, but if you don't ho/po without strumming, it counts as a miss.
Maybe also put in a harsher penalty for missing notes? Tighter hit window standard?
You want innovation, you got it here.

If it is implemented, FoFiX will stand out from the crowd!

Depending on which notes/themes are used, it can be hard to tell which ones are HOPO notes sometimes. If there's a difficulty that demands they be played as HOPOs, maybe some game assistance to accentuate the appearance of these notes could be in order?

it'll come down to one of the OFFICAL themes (ie non-clone) to make the distinction.
