This is basically the alternative DDR mode in Osu!

Nonstop would be a course of songs all played back to back. You could add mods to certain maps to give your course a different twist. You would not be allowed to pause. Combos would carry over songs. This would be on a different set of rankings. This would also allow people doing unrankable marathons to be able to be ranked in a sense.

Endurance mode is basically an endless stream of songs within a certain star range. My suggestions are: 0-1.49 stars for Easy, 1.5-2.99 stars for Normal, 3-4.49 stars for Hard and 4.50- 5 stars for Insane. This would not be ranked because you would need to force the player to obtain all maps for equality which is a problem with an ever growing ranked list. But you'd be able to show off the results which would contain total time played as well as a list of songs played, to make sure you didn't cheat.

I was also thinking of an Extreme mode for both where even breaks in songs are removed.

Thoughts?

I don't see anything fundamentally wrong with using DDR stuff with Osu! as they're both rhythm games.

Allowing pausing defeats the purpose of Nonstop and Endurance.

Anyway, the courses would be like the beatmap system now. People would submit course with the songs and mods applied, and mods check that it's a reasonable course and rank it. The points earned would be on a DIFFERENT set of rankings.

EDIT: Actually, I think only mods should be able to make courses. Course are easy to make so it wouldn't do well to have people submitting 100 courses a day.

I think this should go more along the lines of what James was thinking; picking/random via star difficulty a set of 4-5 beatmaps to play.

Agreed with disallowing pausing.

I do not agree with allowing them to add to your ranked score, though, and I doubt peppy would want to have another set of scores specific to a mode like this.

Removing breaks would require jumping through sections of the mp3, as well, and would sound like hell. So 'Extreme' isn't an option, imo.

Thems mah thoughts.

...so basically mini Parapara's that count towards an ingame, online ranking, but not directly to your overall ranked score? I'm not entirely sure if peppy could do this without setting up another ranking board to do so.

I was thinking more along the lines of separate scores being recorded during play: total and the actual beatmaps' scores. That way, any ranked beatmaps played in the set would still count towards your ranked score, and unranked would not.

...Although, on second thought, that would basically defeat the purpose of an endurance mod, anyway. >>

I would like to see some sort of endurance mode in at some point, though.

And therein lies the rub.

I think Endurance could be ranked if a formula was designed for it.

That said, ranking or no ranking I think the modes are plausible and fun ideas.

I've wanted to add a non-stop gameplay mode. Its not going to be done anytime soon (unless echo shows interest in helping with it ;)) but it would definitely be a separate ranking. Not sure how courses would work but there would be the option for users to create their own courses, choose non-stop random, or play "ranked" courses for attempts at the non-stop ranking. I believe this ranking would be per-course, which no "total ranked score" so it would place more focus on doing good at each course, and less on playing every course out there.

Bringing this up in the meeting due to cool factor.

Thanks, peppy. I also wanted this to happen. An endurance mode will be OK.

Incredible Necropost! I was almost Dazzled!

Ahem.

I support this, a Non-Stop/Endurance feature would be cool, even if it was unranked.

Would almost compare to the medleys/compilation we have now, that's awesome.
