I made my own BMS file.  
BMS - Archetype (17.5 MB)

This was hard to do. Using Reason, I exported a loop of every single note played in the song (sans repeats) to one file each, and then put them all back together using a BMS creation tool.

BMSes, for those not in the know, are simfiles for beatmania, meaning they contain the information and sounds that make up songs to be played like in beatmania. I've got a lot of official(ly illegal) ones, and a lot of originals from mildly popular Japanese composers.

So yeah, Archetype as a BMS. Download, have fun. If you don't have a beatmania sim and you want to play or just watch the notes fly by, download MixWaver][. Extract it, place the FOLDER CONTAINING the files in the Archetype zip in the same directory as mixwaver2.exe, open the program. You can either "listen" to it or "play" it.

FYI, it's got 4 difficulties: 5key (7☆), Light 7 (4☆), 7key (7☆), Another 7 (8☆).

Hol-eeeee CRAP I suck at this. It's so much harder to follow!

beatmania is astonishingly harder than DDR. It's simply because of so many more things to follow.

I like the song, but I REALLY don't like your BMS. You seem determined to follow the backbeat at all times, which gets really boring and annoying. I'd much rather be following, say, the bassline and piano, and when you try to follow all three, there's not enough room and your note patterns start getting really stupid.

Additionally, you're determined to follow that acid synth that, I don't know about you, but I can barely hear. I think it gets drowned out by the bass or something. So there are a lot of notes that I didn't even know they were following ANYTHING, because I hadn't heard that part in the song. (And I still don't, actually.)

Also, once the cool lead synth comes in later... less scaling! Scaling is relatively rare in IIDX notecharts for a reason. You don't NEED to have your notes follow the exact ups and downs of the music, it's more important to just follow the rhythms and be fun to play.

Additionally, just because it's the same sample doesn't mean it should be the same key. All the one-key drumrolls (especially in the another) are really annoying and kind of pointless.

So yeah, I don't really like your notecharts.

coincidentally, nobody likes you, either!
