Deep analysis? All he has to do is open it, ctrl+f for "love is a danger zone 2", then look at the numbers. It answers his question without needing a thread.

PEOPLE ARE LAZY!

Yeah, but to be honest I am too. If I had gone forth with all the planned projects I had for this site over the past few years without quitting, PH would be the next Google by this point. Laziness is a strong force.

I've been disappointed about this for years.

There are VERY few internet forums left out there and it's basically ONLY Facebook or Reddit for niche topics like this one.

And most of the Pump Facebook groups are really lame and devoid of discussion, but that goes for every Facebook group.

We have this: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1725898644349348&ref=br_rs

But it's just not the same.

EDIT: haha I just remember me saying the thing in your signature quote. geez, if that ain't true

Present company excepted.  Censorship has killed the days of posting about musical games in message boards.  DDR Freak had many issues with overbearing moderators.  Bemanistyle was awesome until MidnightRealism became a moderator and preceded to sperge out over anybody who he thought was worth picking a fight with.  Zenius-I-Vanisher continues to be the laughing stock of FaceBook the same way DDR Freak was to Bemanistyle.

Some mod on DDRFreak once gave me a punishment because I posted about playing in Kentucky on the Midwest forum, they moved it to the South, and I explained that the Kentuckiana area is midwestern considering we're right on the border of Indiana, and like half of our players are from there. Yeesh.

Yeah dude, it's been really frustrating me for a long time. I'm not a fan of Reddit, but at least it's generally searchable and open to read.  Facebook's divided into so many different groups and pages, many of which you need to be invited into, that the modern Pump community is completely scattered.  So if someone down the line runs into a problem with their machine, this forum is pretty much all we've got.  

And as for finding random simfile packs, man, I've scoured what I can find from random Youtube searches and dodgy upload sites, but I know there's gotta be tons of packs out there locked behind niche Facebook groups that only like 20 people ever got to play. Like I'd love it if it were possible to send out a big PSA to everyone to just post their simfiles here, or at least somewhere centrally-located so that the rest of us can share and collaborate.

We're living in times where people just don't care anymore about almost any topic in the Internet that isn't controversy or perversity. Almost every group including PIU and other game groups in any network (not just FB) is nothing but a clusterfuck of memes and people who don't take anything seriously if at all. Quite saddening.

I quit Facebook for good a month before Mark Zuckerburg had to answer to Congress for that Cambridge Analytica scandal and I do not regret it one bit. I'd like to talk to more Pump players, though, and finding high quality mp3s is a trying task for me nowadays.

Just use StepF2. They are all HDD decrypts.
