How to

You’ll need basic knowledge of MMA2 to proceed, which can be learnt bsmg.wiki – https://bsmg.wiki/mapping/mediocre-map-assistant.html.
Everything explained below will be the specific process for Ragnaröck.

Install
  • Create the following folder in your Documents folder :
    (pathToDocumentsFolder)\Documents\Ragnarock\CustomSongs
  • Install MMA2 and configure the songs path to be
    (pathToDocumentsFolder)\Documents\Ragnarock\CustomSongs

 

Using MMA2 for Ragnaröck
  • Create a new level (song) with at least one difficulty map (3 max). The “difficulty” and “characteristic” parameters don’t really matter (see below for details)
  • Don’t forget to put your song (ogg format) and cover (jpg format, 512*512 pixels max recommended) in the folder that has been created and make sure the filename matches the MMA2 settings
  • “Note jump speed” is taken into account, 10 is quite slow, 20 is very fast for example
  • Create your song by using only red blocks, arrow pointing down, on the middle layer
  • If the songs features BPM changes, don’t forget to add them on the effects track on the right : it will make mapping easier and notes will have the correct rune on them in the game

 

Optional : Set medals value

If this step is not done, the game will try to compute medals depending on various parameters of the songs.

  • Back in songs info, open the “extra fields” panel on the right, then the “informations” tab
    Add three fields with the following format :
    medal_0=5000 medal_1=5150 medal_2=5250
  • Set the values of each medal (bronze/silver/gold) with the corresponding value in meters

 

Difficulty levels

In Ragnaröck difficulty levels go from 1 to 10, for now you’ll need to set it by hand.
One way to make this step easier is to use the “difficulty” setting in MMA2 but it only set “odd” difficulty levels : Easy (1) / Normal (3) / Hard (5) / Expert (7) / Expert+ (9).

  • Make sure MMA2 is closed
  • Open the “info.dat” file in your song’s folder
  • Optional : paste the content into a json formatter to make it easier to read and paste it back in the file
  • Locate the “_difficultyRank” parameter for each difficulty level and set it to the correct number (1-10)
  • Save and quit

 

Optional : Set the song’s duration

This value is used to display the song’s duration in the menu, not setting it will result on the menu displaying “0:00” but will not be a problem in game.

  • Make sure MMA2 is closed
  • Open the “info.dat” file in your song’s folder
  • Optional : paste the content into a json formatter to make it easier to read and paste it back in the file
  • Locate the “_previewDuration” parameter in the first section, and add the following line under it :
    "_songApproximativeDuration":155,
  • Set the value to be the length of the song in seconds
  • Save and quit

 

Optional : Create an audio preview

If no preview has been created, the game will play the first 10 seconds of the song when the song is selected in the menu.

  • Load your song in your favorite audio editing software
  • Select the part you want and cut it to be less than 15 seconds
  • Add a fade in and fade out
  • Export it as “preview.ogg” in the song’s folder
