beat man - THE THEME was an incomplete project meant to provide an IIDX-like theme for beat mode in StepMania. It really didn't get anywhere due to StepMania's sub-par support for beatmania. (This has recently changed with sm-ssc, but it's nowhere near perfect.) On September 5th, 2007, the theme was released in an incomplete state along with a noteskin which was the same. In 2008, the theme was given to shakesoda, who started changing it around.
No, I will not port this theme to a later version, because it was never finished.
The project with the same name created by someone who is not a part of the spinal shark collective is not authorized by us.
