i write stepcharts for STEPMANIA and have been doing so for what seems like forever. if you don't know how to install song files into stepmania then READ THIS.
the charts i write are created with pad play in mind and that's where they'll be the most fun. my style of charting is one that evolved out of a lot of influence from DDR 4th through MAX2. while i used to write a lot of extremely difficult charts, i tend to stick around the 8-10 difficulty range (on DDR's difficult meter, give or take) at this point. i prefer comfortable fun over physical challenge.
currently working on RENARDS ERROWS IV (folder banner available here), the fourth generation of my stepchart collections. click here to view files only from IV and click here to view complete packs of previous generations.

LIGHT: 4 / STANDARD: 7 / HEAVY: 9 / 210BPM
He Pukes Based Shark (Renard RMX) by Mayhem
LIGHT: 6 / STANDARD: 8 / HEAVY: 9 / CHALLENGE: 10 / 200BPM
the heavy and challenge are largely the same on this one, the challenge just has a break towards the more hectic part and some nastier jumps in said part. wanted to have the option to say “i don’t want to play that part right now” with this chart.

STEPFILE PACK: RENARD’S ERROWS II
as i started to get back into charting more seriously, i got back into playing the same way, and my charts got pretty tough pretty quickly. most of the stuff in here is challenge-only, and i think absolutely everything is a 9 or higher (actually usually a 10 or higher). i pushed the chart difficulty as my own playing got better, so there are a few solid 12s and 13s as well - they’re usually pretty tasteful. the banners are all ITG-sized, and most everything has a background as well. a good pack for serious pad players and keyboard players that enjoy playing hard pad stuff rather than keyboard charts. a few gems include $$ Troopers, Gaycore, Illegal Dustbin, Keys to the World, Mistakes, and We Are Hi-Speed.
REQUIRES STEPMANIA-SSC / OPENITG / OTHER BUILDS SUPPORTING ROLLS! (but really you should be using SM-SSC unless you’re working with ITG cabinet stuff)
