does it crash or lock up on the stage screen?

if it locks up on the stage screen you probably didn't register the DLLs necessary to play video in-game.

 

Yeah, it just freezes on the song selection screen. How can I register the DLLs?

can you help me?? How do I activate the extra options without a card (rather, I don't know how I activate them since I can't make a profile but I have all the options up to speeds 0.25, 0.75,1.25 .....) but when using the option suddent + or hidden + appearance, nothing happens, I don't know if it's a problem with the game or because of having activated them forcibly, but when giving the last appearance option it works, and as I said before, I can't create a profile because the butterfly doesn't connect to me and I left checking cheking .. and from ai it does not happen and I would like to be able to play in sudent + or hiden + in addition to being able to change the character.
By the way, I tried the butterfly with the clean version MDX-001-2020020300 and it keeps giving me the error, it stays in checking ...

here I am playing in suddent + but nothing happens but the speed does work

It has and certainly I am in the version 2021080400 AIO v5 and I know that the butterfly does not work in that version, but as I said before, I have problems with 2020 versions and it does not work so I ask if there is another way to modify the profile, character, extra options and things like that

go to the com folder in your game dump folder, eg.

then run the following command in an administrative command prompt in that folder:

this should register those DLLs and the videos should play fine, and you won't get lockups on songs with them

Hey I just want to say thanks to @topet2k12001

and the community here getting this thing set up THIS IS AWESOME!

So far I have got A20+ to run well a few days ago.

I haven't tried getting butterfly to run yet, but I'm also on the most recent release 2021080400.

I am willing to learn hex editing for the purpose of unlocking gold cab and have the gold bga.

Is it that complicated?

Also how important is it to patch over content data folders from previous version to current?

I understand that butterfly wont work on 2021 data.  Now am learning that it may be tied to spicetools ability to force on the other fun things.

Do we have a parent file to download yet that has all of the data patched over?

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.

@7zxkv thanks for the mirrors!

Not sure if it really matters but 

the mirror dumps for 2020020300 arent working currently.

also the 2020080728 isnt either.  

I was able to fish the thread for it though.

You should read the thread instead. You're asking for something that has already been answered.

Yes? I ask why below the post that I just answered or rather ask in this case, there is an individual x who has the gold in the v5 version but without the background issue "he thought I enabled it using that patch"
PD: I have read every 1 of the comments in this and in the previous thread and there is nothing wrong with asking, it is better to remain ignorant than to be left with the doubt ...

EDIT: ok after messing around in the butterfly sqfile, now i remembered that you just need to change in global events the rows 6 and 8 from 9999 to 10
