I tried playing newer releases but I really really hate any version other that 4 alpha 4. dunno.. it just doesn't feel the same I guess
I got that version on an older pc in my country, but it'll take me another year until I get back there and able to play it... So here I am refusing to play any other stepmania releases and desperately trying to get help ;-; I beg you help me if you got that version. Please help a stepmania obsessed bro
In case anyone is interested for the overall look of Stepmania 4 alpha 4 as much as I was,(especially that really nice main menu) after a pretty long time I have finally found some people that put it together as a theme for SM5.
So far the theme seems to work pretty fine, looks and feels good. Of course you still have the really weird flow of the steps of SM5... But if that's not such a big deal for you as it is for me then the theme will help loads.
I also found that a classic DDR noteskin really helped with the step flow too.
This is the github for the theme that's put together really well. It works better than what Danfordmania has which is a whole other mess that's definitely not for newbies.
Just download the whole thing under "Clone or Download", unzip, and drag the single folder with everything into the Theme folder in SM5. You will have to choose it from the Appearance menu and probably restart the game.
The DDR 5th Vivid is what I'm using as a noteskin, which goes well together with the SM4 Alpha 4 theme, unlike the "flash" look of the SM5 arrows.
I hope this helped at least some future seekers because I know I've spent all this time looking for it. Unfortunately the SM4 Alpha 4 exe is nowhere to be found and I wouldn't risk diving into third party websites.
