Yoy,

   

I do remuxes every few years, typeset very slowly for SmugCat and spend most of my time playing osu! I think Ryutai means fluid or something. Oh also my name is pronounced Ree-you-tie-eee which kinda sucks, I thought it was Ree-you-tie. 

 

Anyways hopefully you find some of this post helpful or interesting or something ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Tips for improving

Streams

Start out small and learn early! At first try playing maps with small bursts of notes at a lower bpm range (5 notes is a good place to start). Don't just go crazy and click as fast as you can, make sure you play with the error bar enabled and try and listen to the rhythm as you attempt the burst, the error bar will then show you whether you were too fast or slow and you can then adjust from there. Practice is key here as aim and reading also play a factor as well as shear rhythm/speed capabilities. Once you are comfortable with short bursts of 5-7 notes try playing songs that have extended bursts or small streams around 9-10 notes is a good aim here. Don't be afraid to play with NF on, as the amount of notes increase your evenness over each finger becomes more important so you must be controlled and consistent with your key presses. Once you are comfortable with longer bursts/small streams try playing practice difficulties with larger streams and just practice and work you way up the bpm values, speed is not everything here, finger control is in its own right a far more valuable skill, i.e. streaming 180bpm flawlessly is better than streaming 200bpm by fudging every note. After you get the hang of finger control the next thing you want to look at is reading and aim, these are very unique for streams as the they require a steady flowing motion unlike jumps which require linear bursts of movement, try playing maps that require more motion during streams with variable spacing and tight curves.

 

Useful Resources

For bursts (small or long), a lot of maps contain these anyway so I personally never had specific maps for this although there are some targeted at mid/high-level players e.g 7 bursts

Practice sets - Spreadsheet

Some slightly more Spaced stuff - 170bpm 6.53* , 160bpm 5.93*

Crazy aim stuff - 175bpm 7.6*

Standards - what can you expect from something under my own tags, note this does not necessarily apply to collaborations or work I do under other tags.

The aim is here is to provide a release thatc aters for those who want encoded video

 

Video:

I do not currently encode so you will not see a fresh encode on any of my releases, in the rare case this is true that will be some other great fellow's handiwork. Please do not request or expect this. The aim is to get a true representation of source while maintaining reasonable file sizes (i.e. no BD remuxes) sources will be compared and (hopefully) shared upon pick-up or completion. If you think I missed a source or I didn't make the right choice, please do say.

 

Preferred video sources will be usually from the JPBD (if available) 1080p and AVC 10bit, this will not always be the case but most likely will represent most cases. Encodes will be picked based on detail retention and modification from source, i.e. unnecessary modification of source materials through colour changes or warping of any kind is generally not something I will ever choose, on the other hand debanding and or other similar filters that can fix issues in the source material without tarnishing its original aesthetic will be preferred. 

 

Audio - Dual (English and JP) FLAC audio for shio releases where this is possible, Single (JP) FLAC audio releases under Furo. For 720p releases (if applicable) audio will be re-encoded AAC. Bit depth will depend on source and the methods by which I obtain the audio, higher is preferred in the case it is true, i.e. tracks will be left at 24 bit if the bit depth is higher than 16 upon extraction. In some cases where others provide already converted audio I will not change the bit-depth. Commentary tracks will be added where applicable, with FLAC being the preference here however some commentaries may be lower depending on the quality of the source.

 

Subtitles - Fansubs will be used for all releases, official subs will not be included and in the case a proper fansub does not exist I will create one (i.e editing official subs, Typesetting etc.), visual quality and making the experience as seamless as possible is the goal here, solid typesetting with no scene bleeds you get the picture. I will try to add karaoke and romaji to my subtitles if these do not exist already, for those who do not like I will create a vanilla sub patch, I know some prefer simple eng-TL only.

 

Picking which sub to use in the case there are many suitable options will be determined by a few things, a few - reputation of the group, comments surrounding that particular release & typesetting quality. Honestly though I will not lie this will be subjective at times.

 

 

Language tagging - Honestly not concrete for now but sub tracks will match their spoken language, and English dub and signs will be defaulted when applicable.

 

 

Naming:

 

File naming:

Show name - ## (source resolution profile audio codec) [Group] [CRC]

Sword Art Online - 01 (BD 1080p Hi10P Dual FLAC) [Shio-freeka] [FE055175]

Hark0n reference

Video

  •  

Audio

  • Alterations - Only alterations necessary for synchronization to video and fixing serious issues accepted. Any other alterations avoided, unless track included alongside unaltered version.
  • Format - All lossless formats transcoded to FLAC without loss of data. All lossy formats left in their original format without transcoding. Exceptions may apply if source requires editing that can't be done without conversion.

Subtitles

  • Source - Fan subs/fan edits used when available. Official translation used over fan translation if it is deemed to be better in quality (decided subjectively)  or fan translation is inconsistent between episodes or seasons.
  • Styling - Main dialogue uses simple styling. Signs that can be seamlessly integrated in background uses style/format to achieve this, while other signs are simply placed on the top of the screen. No elaborate karaoke effects for songs, unless subtitle source have them and they are not deemed to be intrusive (decided subjectively).
  • Format - ASS (Advanced SubStation Alpha) used as default options for main English track. Additional track may use picture based formats as they are in source.

Chapters

  • Ordered chapters - Generally not used. May be used to achieve alternate cuts of the feature - in this case multiple editions are used and primary one does not contain ordered chapters.
  • Naming - Chapters named after tiles provided in the source (BD or DVD). In case no titles are provided in source, names are based on common practice (e.g. "Intro", "Opening", "Part 1", "Part 2", "Ending", "Preview")
  • Format - xml format used by Matroska Multimedia Container (mkv, mka, mks)

Track naming ordering

  • Video - Generally single video track, but alternative ones could be used for storyboards. Name includes source and encoder (depending on available information)
  • Audio - Japanese and English tracks (in that order) if available. Additional tracks may be included (usually for movies), but no extensive effort will be made to have them. Name includes source (if known) and additional notes, if needed (e.g. there are multiple variations of the audio)
  • Subtitles - Full English dialogue and signs tracks (in that order) if needed. TV shows where no signs are needed may have an empty track to avoid media splitter from selecting full dialogue track. For movies, if no signs are needed, no track is included. For non-English languages, separate signs tracks are not made, even if there is use for them (they will be included if available in source). Subtitle track language flag is determined based on corresponding audio track for if full dialogue and signs tracks use the same language (e.g. 'Full English dialogue' track will be flagged as Japanese and 'English signs' track will be flagged as English), otherwise translation language is used.

Congratulations on making Your own index!

 

 

And now for some meaningless complaints/nitpicks.

You are going out of Your way to explain "best releases possible", and then provide description "Best possible video source I can obtain" and "best fansubs available". It should be obvious where I am going with this - "best" is not very descriptive word and can mean totally different things to different people. And while for video there are some general ideas on what is considered good and what a bad encode, subtitles are a different story - different individuals like different subs fansubs, and there are some who consider official subs to be better than fansubs. 

Regardless, don't take this too seriously, best is bullshit anyways.

but seriously, welcome to the index-having-land. I get the feeling you're probably joining my list of cool indices. 

 

also, I believe @Koby was thinking about doing Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 himself, though I could be wrong. I know I started looking into it, and I feel like that was the reason I stopped. could be crazy though.

Yeah I originally did it way back when it was airing: modified BSS subs to have kfx I did on my own, etc... but I fell in love with the show and even bought the USBD when it came out.

But I don't think I'd reuse my kfx idk if I still have it. Anyways I had all the sources together to work with to make a 1080p FLAC Dual-Audio release.

pretty much this. Yellow-Flash has the best Claymore encode, but it's also using ordered chapters, and their encode doesn't merge back together cleanly (keyframes in the wrong places), which means I have to reconstruct it per episode, basically going frame-by-frame through the OP and ED if I want to preserve it losslessly. Then after that, I have to sync the English audio back in as usual.

 

it sucks. halp.
