yeah this isn't the main page; everything on here is OLD and not supported if you try to download it.

the good news is that StepMania 4 development is picking up.
The bad news is that there's still no new alpha in sight, and I've been fully focusing on sm-ssc at this point.
Changelog was updated.

still on vacation.
Here's a video from one of the moonlight beta testers featuring the theme.

xzzx y'all, I'm on vacation
New releases of moonlight will continue when releases of StepMania 4 alphas continue. I'm not really looking forward to dealing with people who don't play event mode and are using alpha 4 since there isn't a version with fixed bugs out yet. Therefore, I'm going to spend my time working on other, better projects.

If you want to become a private beta tester, you should be able to build the StepMania 4 source code on your own. Priority is given to cool people who know that Access Violation crashes aren't easy to debug and aren't worth reporting blindly. (edited from THE FUTURE [20091029])

If you downloaded moonlight public alpha V before 16:00 CDT (UTC-5), please redownload the theme:
moonlight public alpha V a released!
Much like public alpha IVa, I'd recommend a clean install for this one. (I actually recommend a clean install for all versions of the theme every time you update. :D)

It's been a while since I've updated the changelog, so I've done so. One big thing to note is that Oni mode will be appearing in moonlight public alpha 5. Yes, finally.

So I was thinking that a week had been a long time since moonlight public alpha releases. Then I got sidetracked by a job which is probably still going. Anyways, I came here to tell you moonlight isn't dead, and that it's been possible to write to memory card profiles the entire time! I guess you might also want to check MemoryCardState using MEMCARDMAN:GetCardState(PlayerNumber).

This might get added to moonlight public alpha 5, but I wouldn't hold your breath just yet. I personally expect that to be a beta thing.

the i2236 update mentioned on the @kki_ssc feed basically brings about HD changes. i2234 "fixed" course lengths, and i2235 was the first part of the HD wave. I'd like to give you two comparison shots in 16:10 format (960x600) Pay close attention to the wheel item text and header text:
header text comparison

and that's all I really have for this update.
