Very well done
This has to be one of the best NG Radio flashes on Newgrounds. If you were to do none of the changes below I would still have no complaints.
I'm listing these changes based on the desktop download version of this flash.
Some bugs I found (bugs should always try to be fixed):
- If I click the "Random" button it will continuously play songs from random genres regardless of my station preferences.
- In the desktop version if I make the window big enough, it reveals an extra hidden button not available to the Newgrounds embed version. If I click a genre from the list under this button it will ignore my station preferences and play songs only from the last selected genre.
I don't know why this button is here, but if it needs to stay try to make it so it doesn't alter station preferences.
- After having the previous two bugs happen, I now have to deselect my station preferences in order to play them. Otherwise it just plays any random song.
Closing the application resets all the bugs and it works normally as long as I don't touch the "Random" button or the extra hidden button.
Some important changes I think should be considered:
--- Add a tracking bar for the song currently playing
This would be very helpful because sometimes I'll listen to a song, check out a different song, go back and have to start from the beginning. Maybe put it somewhere like between the Play buttons and the song title.
--- Add a way to play songs only from your favourites
I'm sure once someone has used this for a while and has accumulated a bunch of songs in their favourites list that sometimes they might want to just listen from their favourites.
--- Add a shuffle and repeat button for when you play from favourites
This would just be an addition to the suggestion above.
Some minor changes I think would be helpful, but aren't very necessary would be:
- combine the Play/Pause button into one button
- add a stop button to stop the song so you can replay it from the beginning.
Thank you very much for such a wonderful Radio flash!
- Option to view no visualizations at all because it seems to add to lag quite a bit.
- If possible, load the next song while the current song is playing so that the next song will play instantly.
I'm not exactly sure what signing up does. It gives me my own channel, what does that mean? Does it mean it will play my favourites or will it play stations that I selected (trance, techno, etc.)? If the latter, how can I do this?
Otherwise, this is an excellent flash. I've always wanted a radio station that played good music. :D
Continue? *no choice* --GAME OVER!
I think this could have used a continue system or lives or something because once you get to the later ones (like 8,9,10) it gets harder and it's kinda BS that you have to start ALL OVER again. Even ONE extra chance to do a battle would suffice because it is a fairly simple game, I don't think you'd need more than 2 lives. I say this because the wait time (because it's a quick-draw game) is kinda long, combined with the fact that the entire premise of gameplay is based on pushing a single button. So, some people (like myself) will end up getting impatient because of this.
Otherwise this is a pretty neat mini-game flash.
Decent but, I've seen better
Almost every time I tried to input the CORRECT answer into something like "kiya" it said wrong almost every time. I tried doing it in different ways too and it still told me I was wrong when I typed in the correct answer. I suggest you allow for a little flexibility because you're basically typing out sounds using romaji, which is much more different than doing so in kana.
Also, there was one kana that did not appear for some reason.
I suggest looking over this flash and making sure you didn't miss anything and also to add flexibility when typing in the answer for kana such as "kiya/kya" "hiya/hya" etc. because everyone will have different interpretations on how to sound out the sounds using romaji.
P.S. What is Tenten and Maru?
Bad Song Selection. 2 was better.
I'm afraid I'm going to have to agree with Angel-Dragon.
The song selection for this installment of SCGM Dx 3 was definitely not as good as SCGM Dx 2. This one is also noticeably more difficult than #2 which wouldn't be so bad if the songs I were playing were good songs that I knew and liked. Because of this, I'm not motivated to try and get better at this version of the game which will just make me stop playing all-together.
