FINAL PUBLIC build of butterfly fork (version 1.4.1)

As promised, here is the FINAL PUBLIC build of our fork of butterfly. It's a plain (a.k.a. "vanilla") build that matches the original butterfly of @skogaby so whatever features are present (and lacking) in the official butterfly are are exactly the same for this release. The only differences are the following:

 

  • Runs on Java 8 (only those who know, know why this is important)
  • All dependencies updated to their latest available stable versions
  • Upgraded to Gradle 6.9.1 (released on

    )
  • Can run up to 2020 "date codes" only

 

This comes with NO SUPPORT so you will be on your own from here on. The source code of the official butterfly is still available (

in prop folder have you got ea3config.xml?   you need to extract v4 archive and copy   data ,arkdata ,module folder  and paste it   in content folder

 

Yes I have the ea3config.xml in prop. The ea3config.xml is from the original MDX-001-2020020300 download.

The Bemanitools bat file also copied this file into conf\nvram. So its there also.

 

MDX-2021080400 AIO V4 only has folders for: arkdata, data and modules. It didnt come with a ea3config.xml file.

 

I pasted arkdata, data and modules (from MDX-2021080400 AIO V4) over the top of the existing arkdata, data and modules folders in contents.

I managed to fix the same problem you were having, all i did was take all the contents of the module folder and moved it to the contents folder and then that fixed it.

Thank you!!

 

I have an arcade monitor which runs at 640x480 @60Hz.

When I load up SpiceTools.exe the resolution is out of range. I suppose thats to be expected.

I choose the 4:3 option, which also doesn't work. Using the 4:3 option changes my refresh rate to 75Hz, which gives my monitor curved corners.

I have to manually go to into Nvidia config and change it back to 60Hz

Windowed mode works fine

Has anybody managed to get SpiceTools.exe working fullscreen at 640x480 @60Hz?

Hello,

 

In a world where all of this hard work is purely voluntary (i.e. "I have a life, I have a family, I have a job too"), only kind words are what one would consider "fruits of labor" and hearing/reading them feels so rewarding.

 

Butterfly (our fork) has gone a long way. What initially started out as an individual project (a.k.a. "topet's butterfly"), eventually became a small group's project. On that note, this small group of individuals do not look at, nor weigh, their contributions in the quantitative sense. The fact of the matter is, there is mutual dependency in the contributions that went into (our fork of) butterfly in its current state, such that a missing piece/contribution by any single one in this group couldn't have made butterfly "whole" all by himself. In this sense, our contributions are weighted qualitatively and hence, as I personally see it, all are equal and therefore all individuals in this small group have equal stake for decisions involving this fork of butterfly.

 

These are the people who have helped make butterfly what it is today: @tw3nz0r @bman @Towlesy27 @Sirk @One Eternal Ash @kanor

 

And of course, @skogaby who is the original author of butterfly. I've only had a chance to talk to him a few times and learn a thing or two. But that simple act is what enabled and fueled me to embark on this journey.

 

This decision to (hopefully, momentarily) stop openly supporting the use of butterfly with DDR Arcade (Ripped) Data is a very painful decision, at least for me personally, because - and again, this is in no way undermining the group that made it for what it is today - the fact remains that it started as an individual person's project. As such I would almost say that this is my "baby" project. And as "small" of a project as it may be in the eyes of the more technically inclined, I unfortunately was "technically handicapped" throughout this entire journey, so whatever "little achievement" you can see (from the eyes of a technical person) is actually a milestone and a source of pride for me.

 

I am not about to be hypocritical about all of this because at the end of the day we know what "THIS" is. Do know that I personally took it with a heavy heart to make this decision. But I think, for the preservation of the greater good who will and should benefit in the long run, I believe that this decision has to be made.

 

Out of my love for the work that has been done, and out of consideration for the many others who try their best to help with the sustainability of making this game available, I am going to release a "final goodbye" public build (hopefully, goodbye only for now). This build is enough to last you up to any 2020-dated package, and will cease to fully function when the 2021-dated packages are leaked to the public (or when you use our butterfly fork on any 2021-dated builds).

 

In the meantime, you may use other 3rd-party online servers which provide the essentials for enjoying the game (score saving/tracking, score rivalry, force-unlocking of all songs, etc.). It is unfortunate that we had to (again, hopefully momentarily) stop making public builds since our fork of butterfly, although primarily envisioned for offline use, offers a very rich level of support and experience for DDR that goes the extra mile, in fact way beyond the essentials. Nonetheless, I have huge respect for all the maintainers/owners of the 3rd-party online servers. Putting up a server to function online where there a lot of users is in fact a stressful thing to do (on top of the fact this is purely voluntary plus volunteering material and non-material resources to maintain it). I am amazed at not only your work, but also your dedication for doing this. I am a patron of some of these 3rd-party servers too.

 

I personally hope that things will eventually turn out for the better because I am still very excited in helping others as you have seen me do. Let us hope for the best and make this a learning lesson as we move forward.
