Community

  • Welcome everyone, I'm again late with this post as things have got way busier lately, Project OutFox will finally release alpha 4.9.9, the community pack is reaching the deadline, we have launched many more programs....we are really busy. But now let's see the news.

    A while ago we announced that Project Moondance merged with Team Rizu to create the OutFox Team, this will also reflect in our blogposts now as we will mention OutFox Community Team projects. (Tiny-Foxes is an OutFox Community Team project!)

    Tiny-Foxes

    New Project

    noteskins by JapanYoshi

    This repository was created to host noteskins by JapanYoshi that will join our Community NoteSkins Program. (Will explain more about it down the post)

    Project Updates

    Tiny-Web

    Got updated to reflect the Moondance branding removal.

    Tiny-Webini

    Got updated to match recent changes on OutFox Website.

    OutFox-ja, OutFox-PTBR, OutFox-he, Outfox-fr, OutFox-PL, OutFox-zh-CN

    Got updated to add the new Alpha 4.9.9 lines.

    All repositories that had "Moondance" naming or mention have been replaced with "OutFox", "OutFox Team" or "OutFox Community Team"

    OutFox Community Pack

    The deadline for the first season of the pack is tomorrow! This, however, does NOT mean you can't submit music, charts, or graphics, there are many more seasons to come and the more you help the more seasons are released!

    If you're interested in participating then please join our Discord Server.

    Community NoteSkins

    Recently we released another community project to showcase the community NoteSkins, this means that if you make noteskins for Project OutFox, you'll be able to showcase them on our Website. Currently, we only showcase noteskins that aren't in the game already, this is going to change in the future, but we will be making blogposts of noteskins that do join, so reach out in our Discord Server to submit your NoteSkin!

    Read more about this project here.

    Here are some noteskins that were submitted by the community:

    By Aqui

    Alpha NoteSkins

    By JapanYoshi

    Mikado (Global NoteSkin)

    eigenvectorV2

    eigenvectorV2-blueholds

    This one has blue holds that's why the note is the same!

    By yaladre

    See the noteskin on this video

    This one has been submitted to join Project OutFox so that's why you can't see it on the Project Outfox Website.

    Webmasters

    Every translator (who has submitted a translation and got released with any Project OutFox Alpha) now has access to our Webmasters program. This means access to Documentation, Profiles, and Tools to translate the Project Outfox Website to any language, if you also wish to help please contact us in our Discord Server!

    OutFox Wiki

    The entire OutFox Team worked together to create the new version of our Wiki with an updated look, content, and navigation.

    A summary of the recently added documentation is:

    • FAQ has been merged, the FAQ in our Wiki contains the most up to date information and all other FAQs should now redirect here.
    • Preferences File updated, almost all preferences now include the default value, usage, value examples, and description.
    • Installation uses Hugo features to better organize its contents.
    • Dev Team uses Hugo features to better organize its contents.
    • Translation uses Hugo features to better organize its contents.

    We're still accepting community documentation submissions with the same repository as the old wiki Outfox.wiki/.

    If you have any content/community/page that had a redirect to our wiki, check your links, they have changed a lot!

    Read more about the new wiki here


    This is it, for now, more and more announcements are coming so be sure to keep an eye on our Website News!

  • Hello everyone, this post is a bit late to the party as both teams who manage OutFox are really busy lately, as more people join to help with the project, the scope of our plans continues to get bigger and bigger.

    Tiny-Foxes

    If you don't know what Tiny-Foxes is: "In Tiny-Foxes, we host projects that have been made with the community itself, we range from translations all the way up to whole themes for OutFox." Read more at Tiny-Web.

    New Member

    @Nepumi-Jr joins the team! Nepumi is known for working on MusicMemories, full of unique features and exclusive for 5.3's important to note that this theme is very WIP before issue-bomb the repository. See also our Twitter post.

    More members are already coming but that will be announced in our next post.

    New Project

    stepmaniaCheck (WIP) by moruzerinho6

    This is a work in progress tool that will search for useful data for given StepMania and report and it found, here are some WIP screenshots:

    Here, the tool is trying to find installations on each game default installation (usually C:\Games).

    If it doesn't find any game on that path, you'll have to manually give the path otherwise.

    Here it displays all the information is collected (or was supposed to collect), and gives a status based on each property value. A thing to note here is that we used the "Other" options here and the tool was still able to tell this is an OutFox install, that's because it looks at the file structure for the given installation and tries to deduce what it is.

    Now that we have this data, the tool will also save this table on a text file which will be bundled with its releases. This is very useful for platforms like Discord where you can send the text file (Not its contents) and it previews for you.

    Project Updates
