LN BMS Vs. O2Jam edition.
No I wasnt the person spamming o2jam memes a few threads ago.
I hate how LR2 highlights long notes that aren't being pressed if the note before them is pressed.
For example in your pic the notes at the top of the screen shouldn't be highlighted because they aren't even being pressed.
I know it does the same shit, I just don't like it because I'm autistic.
Take my picture of what it is (left) and what I would prefer (right).
that image makes me want to make an "inverted" chart like this
>saw mayumi in person last year and didn't realize it
>literally breathing the same air as her in the same room
Pretty easy to read actually, notes are bigger and more distinguishable from the background than they look like in videos recorded with cameras.
My webm was a joke by the way, it's actually just a video recorded straight from a Museca cabinet and played on youtube.
>the issue is we're in different country.
Upload it to an unlisted fileshare and have him download it.
Then have him download the torrent on sows and have his torrent client point the download where you have it downloaded.
His download won't go up but his upload will (assuming he seeds). Aside from freeleach it is how people have infinite ratio. They don't care how you got the file as long as you're on sows, understand the implication of having said file, and are seeding (therefore helping future people getting the files).
not him, but
>uploading like 30 gigs of shit to unlisted fileshare and having him download 30 gigs of shit all at once
How about you make your own private torrent of that, send the torrent to your friend, and have him download it directly from you? Delete the torrent and stop seeding as soon as he finishes it, preventing a potential leak (which shouldn't happen anyway assuming you didn't make the torrent public).
Much more efficient than using a third party filehosting service.
I meant the game files, if he downloads the torrent he is going to incur 30 gb download.
That works too
we just split the archive into 40 files and meticulously downloaded it over a span of 3 days.
Why is Beatmania so difficult? There's a reason it's not competitive with Guitar Hero, and it has a lot to do with the difficulty curve.
because that's what makes it fun.
the difficulty curve is fine. some people don't want to completely master a game in a month like guitar hero and would rather put time in to something actually challenging and interesting. if you want to be an instant master you should just quit rhythm games.
I guess I'm happy I finally got around to beating this, but damn me that score is bad.
Do all /jp/sies here only care about Osu and Bemani, because I just stumbled upon this game called Tone Sphere, and it looks quite interesting:
The author's homepage is http://bit192.info/labs/j/
It's an American cab, but it's in far better condition than it has any business being in. I was dead-tired when I played it and it's probably too difficult for me anyway, leading to the trash score.
Basically, I didn't have a single pad-miss in six hours of play. I'm pretty sure that's completely unheard of for an American X2 cab. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Keyboard? I think it's a great first step into rhythm games for beginners, but that's about it. I don't really understand how people take it as seriously as they do and get so good at it before moving onto deeper games.
At least it's better than o!m 4key
There are only so many patterns you can do and hand placements required is non-existent.
So essentially difficulty comes down to just making charts with high BPM filled to the brim with ridiculous streams, jacks, and jumps. Even then it's a matter of being able to keep up with the chart.
That said it doesn't need depth to be fun for what it is. It's fun and it being very popularly known plus having a long legacy means you can find better charts more easily than say LR2. You just get tired of the game and move on to other rhythm games.
Even guitar hero has more depth from just having 1 more key (+ the whole aspect of strumming).
8k stepmania is cool though, not enough charts sadly.
i can't get videos to work on lr2. I tried installing that video codec the Ultimate Lunatic Rave 2 Guide tells you to and it still doesn't work, help?
nvm I'm a dumbass, i just had to enable bga in the settings
Tone Sphere is a blast, I dig it. But yeah, this thread is usually just IIDX circlejerking, pretending the turntable isn't a shit gimmick, and whining about charge notes because apparently IIDX players still can't handle the second most common note type in all of rhythm gaming here in 2016.
Depends on the song. Most Mass MAD izm songs are pretty much songs where you play with one hand on the scratch. BSB the most notable one.
However you should make it a habit to at least be able to hit 1 and 2 while scratching.
Two hands on the keys is how you play. There are some people who do a lot of one handing or do it sometimes for fun, but if you always play with one hand on the TT you're severely gimping yourself. The game has a very large amount of long segments with all notes and no scratches.
If the monitor isn't CRT there will always be input lag. Usually people just bear with it and play, the offset does not really matter as long as you have a hit window that you are comfortable with. Changing the offset too much will cause accuracy issues down the road. Personally I use +1.7 which works for me.
Not all arcades are the same. If you're used to one timing at a place and you go to another place it's very common for your timing to just be 100% off. Like from MAX-102 to A+22 800+ slow off.
However most people aren't from Japan jumping from arcade machine to machine in different places. If you primary play at one place you shouldn't be messing with your offset.
Hey guys I get my FP7 this week but I realized I don't have a space to play it on, is there like a certain table you guys use to play your dao on or do you just move your keyboard and play it on your desk or something?
Not every arcade machine uses the same monitor, and people also just read the scrolling notes differently which has an impact when the timing is as precise as it is in IIDX.
I tend to read and hit things early, so I play with +0.3 at home and +1.6 at R1.
I'm having massive issues with timing in IIDX. Even when I set my offset to +4.0, most of my notes are registered as Fast.
Could my problem be audio latency? I'm tempted to buy a discrete sound card, but I have no idea how to diagnose if it's input lag, audio lag or something else.
Look what came in on monday-!
Holy shit this is better than IIDX
>Even when I set my offset to +4.0, most of my notes are registered as Fast.
Then stop playing so early holy shit.
Your system might be "too good" and have zero latency (which would correspond to +3.0 or so), but if you're still hitting that early, it's definitely you.
Audio latency would make you play late if you were playing by the audio. Similarly, input lag would also make you play late. It's the lack of lag that makes you play early.
im trying to find an iidx video where a guy exhc some song in the arcade. he sits on a stool and plays on 1p side and then the camera holder and his friends start screaming when he is about to pass (in an asian language that isn't japanese). any help?
Does Glorious Days count.
I don't feel like looking up what this is.
Maybe not in IIDX, but some stuff in pop'n might qualify.
Ignoring the fact that this is pretty much a meaningless genre, >>14616635 .
鬼言集 and All is Wrecked, maybe.
I can't believe how comfy pop'n music 6 is on PSP.
I want another Pop'n CS :'(
I bought this for my uskoc and it worked fine, nice and cheap too.
They include a cd with it that has the drivers for the ps2, make sure to also install the one for peripherals as well for the controller to work
have you contacted them about why it's taking so long? I've gotten a $100 coupon after my pop'n controller got lost in delivery for 3 weeks. I know different company but companies do try to keep their customers of a niche hobby with them.
You get used to it.
You can't hit Green+Blue on the dpad, however you can map L2 and R2 to these colors, which allow you to hit them by pushing the stick up.
It's obviously really hard to pull off during Extra songs, but as long as you don't use random/use mirror, it's not that bad.
The game looks really good zoomed in, too.
...Turns out it works just fine.
Damn, Pop"n Music pre-6 looked like ass.
The playfield doesn't mesh well with the characters, and the combo and judge keeps blinking.
The playlist has also been made a little obsolete by PS2 entries.
Still better than Pop'n GB
What level? The only ones I could find where like level 11 and 12 which I can't consistently pass but I don't know how to get good enough because I can't play higher level songs. I'll probably just ask someone to pass it for me.
>The only ones I could find where like level 11 and 12
left knob switches between courses
right knob switches between levels
you might be looking at the KAC only course or something, use the left knob to find the regular courses and choose a level you can pass
should i follow notes with my eyes or just stare at a specific part of the playing field and perceive the patterns through peripheral vision + reflex as they scroll past where i'm looking at?
If you pass like level 4 (which is pretty easy) you can play 11/12s for your first song. And if you're not able to pass them then you shouldn't be attempting to play higher level songs and wasting your money, that's why skill analyzer exists in the first place
I just googled it and found a list for Gravity Wars, Level 4 is typically an 11 and two 12.
Then do Skill Level 3 first (9-10).
Also, take another look at the list posted by >>14624635
When you play the game, try to practice the songs that will appear in the skill tests (or maybe just check them out on Youtube). You only need to pass one skill analyzer, so just pick whichever looks easiest. Some time ago I unlocked skill level 6 (so that I could start with 14s) even though I could only pass one 14 at the time. But guess what, that 14 appears in the 第2回 Bコース so suddenly it wasn't much of a big deal.
has anyone else dealt with hand pains because your hands get too tense during dense sections of songs? the joint of my middle finger starts to really kill me after about 30 minutes of playing challenging songs.
Make a conscious effort to not lock up your knuckles while playing. They should bend towards the keys not slap around like your edward scissor-hands
Green number is how long the notes stay on the screen. Someone posted the formula a few threads ago but I didn't save it cause I'm an idiot.
I know white number is the percentage of screen that is covered (100 = 10% ; 250 = 25% ; 400 = 40% ; etc..).
I think 300 is like 600 ms on screen but that's just me trying to remember from faulty memory.
is it wise to remove this board on a uskoc? i want to spray wd40 into the turntable assembly below since the turntable is too stiff to scratch effectively, and i can't remove the screw holding it in
I'm aware of the wax paper mod, but as i mentioned in my post the screw holding in the turntable is stuck. It's already stripped and I don't have a dremel handy to remove it. You can see it on the left side of my picture.
Stop posting on 4chan with a fucking name, I know you personally and have talked to you over irc a few times and you seem like an alright guy, but right now you are just making yourself look like an obnoxious faggot and I am telling you this for your well being.
If you want proof that I know you than hints: L + K
I want to make a dedicated partition for my rhythm games, is there some OS preferences or particular things I should be watching out for in making it?
Consider I want to play the newest games so XP may not be the best choice.
So I hear Virgoo is RIP? I'm ready to buy a SDVX controller and theirs seemed better but if the company is going down the shitter then should I just go with the SVSE5? Any mandatory options besides Omrons?
O2Jam is probably the only place where you can learn how to be ET in every kind of patterns. It teaches you about everything: rice, noodles, 8 bit, 16 bit...
>o2jam's timing windows are by far the worst
I don't see anything bad in O2Jam's timing. Try and play 8 bit there and you'll find out how much interesting the timing gets.
>charts aren't much better either
If you're used to play bms only of course you'll find O2Jam's charts strange. Of course bad charts exist, but that's just a minority compared to the whole variety of patterns you can find and learn.
And also, O2Jam has the thing called multiplayer that other games haven't (excluding osu!shit).
Why is osu so bad, then? Most of the charts are somewhat inspired by o2jam charts and it has a much more active playerbase for the multiplayer.
There isn't that much ET stuff, but these aren't for most people anyway.
I don't hate either game, I just don't see how somebody can like o2jam and dislike o!m. They have pretty much the same strong/weak points.
Dellar is the currency money you get on sows by seeding torrents and visiting some ads, you need 100 dellars to buy an invitation and you get 0.5 each hour by seeding, do the maths.
Doing trill randoms help with doing trills on the piano especially for pinky trills.
Also being able to move your hands so fluidly helps as well as hand-eye-coordination to translate what you see into the proper hand movement and position.
However aside from that no really, playing a piano will not really help for IIDX and vice versa.
I can't play IIDX on windowed mode. The audio is subtlety wrong and it's really annoying.
I never understood how the safari became this impossible to pass final stage.
People constantly talking about how it's impossible to pass and sometimes even skip to 8th dan and there is even a term for people who do. However I can't even touch the 8th dan course and I passed 7th dan course months ago.
A few months ago I couldn't pass Kamikaze to save my life, now I can pass it but melt at Miracle 5ympho X and I don't even want to imagine gigadelic. Yet somehow people can pass this but not the safari?
How do I get movies from my Spada install to my LR2 folder? I'm done with the timing issues of HDD Data. If this isn't possible is there a torrent of LR2 movies somewhere from all of the IIDX official games that are logically organized? I would hate to watch each individual movie and drag and drop for hours on end.
Just make a symlink from the movie folder in your HDD data to a movie folder in your converts.
So "Songs/Beatmania IIDX21 Spada/movie" for converts, in the same folder as all those numbered song folders
And from "Beatmania IIDX21 Spada/data/movie" or something like that
The thing about o!m is that it's not hard enough. It doesn't punish you for making mistakes, and it encourages spamming through charts you can't read.
Most maps are garbage, the community is garbage. People actually think that PP = skill and will prioritize farming the same map all over again over actually getting good.
I'm mostly a LR2 player now, but I still go back to o!m to play multi with a couple friends from time to time (I pretty much only play Insane BMS converts and the occasional noodle).
Not the anon you were talking to.
Unrelated: I passed the 2nd insane today. Fuck you Durandal, fuck you Black Lair.
>The thing about o!m is that it's not hard enough. It doesn't punish you for making mistakes, and it encourages spamming through charts you can't read.
Yeah, I tend to just quit songs when I feel like I'm not reading them, so I forgot about that. That's a good point.
>Most maps are garbage
I can see why you'd think that since you play mostly LR2, but I don't see how someone who is a o2jam player would feel the way. The charts aren't as hard as some o2jam ones, but they have the same style for the most part.
Even as a BMS player I can recognize the good noodle from the bad noodle, and most charts aren't that good unfortunately. Play some o2jam converts, or better yet, play o2jam, and you'll see what I mean.
Ranked beatmaps lately have been focusing on exploiting patterns known to boost the star rating to trick the system into giving you more pp, while being actually really easy (see: C18H27NO3), and the vast majority of unranked beatmaps are either downright bad or average, excluding some charts from a few mappers who actually know what they're doing.
Overall, the chart quality is really bad.
I play o2jam too, but I'm a shitter who can't noodle, so I don't think I'd feel that much difference.
I'll take your word though, I was just confused to the reasoning behind the hate from o2jam players, and it makes sense now. Thanks.
This is going to sound weird but is there any guide that explains all the different options menus and customization available in IIDX?
It seems every time i play I find some new feature or don't know what a certain number or indicator means
For example, the tons of pacemaker options that are all in japanese and a lot of the options available with the v-efx
You really don't want any pacemaker option other than A AA or AAA, the other's are just for Personal Best, and for rivals.
Most of the options tell you where they're positioned on screen when they move something, the others are almost all in english.
Does anyone here have experience with replacing switches on their FP7?
I bought the on sale one with free shipping last year but I was thinking about buying 7 50g omron switches and replacing the ones that is already in the controller
It's really easy, keys don't even need to come out, just open up the back of the controller and the switches twist to one side and pull right out without any effort, then just use a small screwdriver to pry the LED holder off.
I feel like people think this if they're trying really hard to progress instead of just playing the game.
It doesn't matter if you're stuck at the X wall and you desperately want to break it. Just play for fun, if you find it a chore take a step back and do something else for a while, or play different songs of different difficulties or maybe go for different goals (clear lamps, FC, scoring, etc..)
Not sure why is this considered bad, if the song sounds shit while previewing it, why would you want to play it at all (taking heavy assumption here you are sticking with familiar good sounding songs)? Normal people doesn't listen music they dislike.
And I don't want to clutter the lamps with songs I don't never want to play again just because they sound shit (unless there is a way to clear the lamps in AC).
Sometimes the preview doesn't highlight a good part of the song but the actual song is quite good. Or maybe the song might not be so great but the actual chart is really really fun.
That said if you played a song and you didn't enjoy there is no reason to go back unless you want a specific lamp. I think failing to clear songs that sound like shit is the worst. That means I know I'll eventually have to play it again because I like clear lamps.
The biggest downside to this is I get burned out from the songs I like because they're the only things I ever pick. Even worse if it occurs at Hyper because I wouldn't care about the Another/EX chart when I get there
