ITT: We list new VSRGs
All of the decent ones are fucking old that i know of
So, I got a P1 beatmania controller, but I don't know where to place my hands. The way I do it is left thumb index and middle finger for 1 2 and 3, and pinky for turntable, and then my entire hand for 4, 5, 6 and 7.
That's 1048 style, you just need wrist scratching and then you're doing what 90% of Insane BMS players do. It works, but you'll need to learn a second form if you ever want to play truly scratch heavy songs.
Regarding the current topic: What kind of features you guys are expecting from new VSRGs the older ones don't provide? I'm currently developing one for playing 5k/7k/9k BMSes as a hobby project, not sure when or if I'm going to announce it and open source it anytime soon.
I've always wanted to see a graph similar to the performance chart in IIDX but for timing, that would show at what parts during the song you hit more Greats or Goods, or display your average fast/slow rate.
As for actual features, something like K-Shoot Mania's "Input Gate" for downloading charts from within the client would be very convenient.
o!m isnt even that bad as a game itself the timing is good it has a nice chat client and rankings and alot of skinning options and you can change the hitposition on your skin to what youd like. the charts are a different issue but there are alot of good charts
Is this the right place to ask which phone model is the best for playing rhythm mobage?
My Samsung Note 2 served my needs well for a few years but some mobage (ones with recording features like SB69 especially) seem to hate it.
That's literally not even the point. The point is how trivial o!m is.
That's a insane 2 chart, which is NOT supposed to be easy. I have a 98% on o!m, yet can't clear it at all on lr2.
No, you don't get it. While the scratch does make it harder, that's not the main reason of it being more difficult on lr2. The difficulty of that chart is in accurately hitting the chords without hitting the other keys. They aren't exactly comfortable to play.
LR2 forces you to be accurate, o!m doesn't. Therefore, o!m is shit.
I don't think you get it much either but I won't waste my time
What kind of shoes are good to use for playing Stepmania on a hard pad? Ive been using some old sneakers but since ive started moving up from Standard to Heavy mode my feet feel like their about to split apart and hurt like hell when im playing lately.
I'd sooner recommend DJMax Portable series on an actual PSP with CFW, it's a much better experience IMO. The only downside is that if you want to use the Random modifier on anything above 6B you might run into problems because it's physically impossible to hit notes 1 and 3 at the same time on the d-pad
When I went up in diff like you, my feet used to hurt a lot but after 2-3 weeks of playing every other day, my body adapted and it stopped hurting. Nothing to do with shoes. Somehow, I'm a bit jealous of you, because I was playing mainly to do a bit of exercise, but now almost nothing makes me sweat except really the most difficult songs (and I usually don't like the melody of those).
Funny because the exercise is the main reason i got back into Stepmania after many years. I never had my feet killing me like this though. I guess my age caught up with me and gonna have to tough it out.
Have you tried any of the R7 pad packs? Their well written charts with decent variety IMO.
Do you have flat feet? I do and sometimes I get momentarily that "split apart" feeling when I'm not wearing shoes with a sole that follows the shape of a normal foot. Sneakers are the worst for me because the sole is usually totally flat.
Yeah. The exterior is almost flat but the interior fits the shape of normal foot. A bit like the pic.
osu! is not one of those
but it's got the same concept as the console game instead.
In any case, if there is no PC rhythm game with its own concept, it's a shame. Why doesn't somebody make something with a gameplay exclusively adapted for PC?
>Why doesn't somebody make something with a gameplay exclusively adapted for PC?
On PC you have the keyboard which allows the same gameplay as some existing arcade games i.e. not unique. And mouse is just utter shit for anything rhythm related
I'm still using the same 1280x1024 monitor that came with my computer a decade ago.
I think any monitor is fine really. If you're going to buy a TV, don't get the $100 ones because they have massive amounts of lag.
If you want an LCD go get a Samsung UN32J4000, it's got the smallest amount of lag you'll get from a commercial TV, you can find it for around $150 and it's 32" supporting resolutions up to 1920x1080, so you can run all AC data on fullscreen without any black borders.
>Do you guys use CRT monitors for data to get less input lag and more arcade accurate display?
I don't know why people think arcade IIDX is a lagless experience. Real arcade machines are incredibly laggy. Your average home setup with a garbage monitor and triple buffering is probably just as good.
I had the same problem, but it completely disappeared last time I played 6k. It's comfy as fuck. Wish more people mapped it.
ez2dj had 6k, didn't it? Is there any way to play it now?
Nice. Has anyone used that samsung for pop'n? The tv I use right now is a bit too slow and I really hate playing on it since there's no way to change the timing like you can with IIDX
Funny, I'm the exact opposite. I can do 6k and even iidx but regular 7k still fucks with me sometimes because I can't decide whether to use my right hand or my left on the center key.
>want to play DP
>only have one controller
It's actually a miracle that the pop'n cab isn't destroyed considering who's playing.
How do I set the turn table as Lshift on raindrop?
I'd become gay only for him
Post your favorite USAO's track
I don't understand how people can regularly play pop'n without like, injuring the tendons in their hands or at least being in a lot of constant pain
It doesn't feel possible to play anything above like a 32 without hitting the buttons really hard just because of fast you have to transition around
A lot of people do "slam the keys" in IIDX to get louder keytaps and keep up with timing better, it doesn't hurt because your hands are always in position to directly hit the buttons and the amount of force needed to register a press is a hot lower
You probably know this but check if your TV has a Game Mode and that it's turned on.
There used to be a png guide, don't know when it was last updated though. TL;DR, anything not Bemani or mobage is probably really difficult to get a hold of. Anything that is Bemani is best played with a controller.
For DDR just use Stepmania and download the DDR packs for it. An old arcade pad is ideal but Precision Dance Pads is decent.
USAO likes dickgirls and traps, I think we'd all have something in common. If I ever meet him, I'd like to ask him why the fuck Hocchi Pocchi 4Beat5 never got released.
For some original packs check out the R7 ones.
If you want Vocaloid and Touhou packs look for them on Gpop's Youtube channel(dont think he has a site):
Theres also the Vocalosteps pack. Sadly i think they stopped updating it though.
As for the original DDR songs you can find them on:
Also if you think the default SM5 theme is ugly as fuck like i do check out Cyberia style. Its kinda love it or hate though.
As for pads. The Positive Gaming softpads are good for what they are but if you want to get more serious consider saving up for a Precision Dancepad. Whatever you do, DO NOT waste money on a DDR Game pad. their trash.
I was in pain early on but that was just bad placement and hitting the buttons in weird spots, using much more force than is needed, and the controller was new so the buttons haven't been broken in yet.
Haven't had any issue the last month
Last version is device restricted. Runs only on few selected devices.
Anything older than Tricoro is an absolute nightmare compatibility wise. There are a handful of BMS players in development like the one in the OP but none of them have enough features to replace LR2 yet.
check the archives. One of the leak torrents might still be active.
>Anything better than Lr2.
No, because you can get BMS files for newer styles outside of sows, and if you were to find HDDs anywhere outside of there they'd be really old styles without the modern songs.
When THESE are modern songs...
...who needs modern IIDX?
but Dynamite is a really fun chart
Dirty android is always good
and the new one while a bit repetitive is pretty good
I'm trying to remember a certain song in iidx. The video for it was the singers just singing in the studio and it sorta sounded similar to deep roar. I thought the genre for the song had 90s in it but I can't seem to see it when I look at song I've played. Any ideas?
everything older than tricoro is way more sensitive with regards to hardware and desyncs a lot more easily, which combined with the lack of new songs means people just don't care about it
for newer stuff, it's a common misconception that people keep it secret just for the sake of having sows as some sort of elite secret club, but the fact is that all of the restrictions were put into place for the sole reason of protecting the data sources
Someone gave me a USKOC and I bought the PS PS2 to USB adapter for it.
The buttons work fine but Key 7 does not register as a button in game controller settings, but rather as an input to the X-axis. As a result, Peendool is unplayable.
How can I fix this without adding latency? Sorry, I'm too shy to ask the piggy site on how to fix it. ;__;
Please and thank you.
I managed to fix it... somehow.
I plugged in the controller to a USB 3 port in the back of my PC that supports power even when the computer is off. Maybe the controller hub wasn't receiving enough power?
What the fuck are you doing. Stop downloading shit that will never earn you upload like Empress ISO and BMS files you could get elsewhere. You have one month to raise your ratio to 0.4 or you'll get banned you know?
Can I get in trouble for inviting an afghan who doesn't know what he's doing?
So how does it work now? I actually just got my PS2/USB adapter yesterday and it worked like you said with the x-axis thing, but I was able to configure bemanitools for it.
and while we're on the topic, does anyone know how to overclock the usb polling rate on windows 10?
Hi, it's >>14661126, again. The controller works fine but sometimes when playing in the middle of a song, some buttons will stop registering completely, causing me to fail it.
It's really intermittent so it's hard to tell because it'll sometimes work.
I'm just going to buy another adapter and give it another try. Maybe the one I bought is just bad.
The controller itself is new.
It seems to work just fine (when it does work, if that happens to make sense.)
key 7 registering as X axis is intended behavior, and is how the controller functions when plugged into an actual PS2. Bemanitools will work perfectly fine.
About your adapter, if it's the shitty blue one try the other port. Mine had a loose connection on one port that only got worse with use (had to jiggle the cables into a sweet spot to get a connection). Otherwise yes just buy another.
by "how does it work" i meant more like "does button 7 actually correspond to a button instead of x-axis"
if you're looking for another adapter there's this one some guy recommended on sows
i've only used it once but it worked really well, and apparently it's lag-free once you boost the polling rate on your pc, but i haven't figured that out yet
This is why they send me an email I always ask if they've been on other private trackers and to show me their ratio.
If they never been on another private tracker I don't want to trust that guy anyways. It can be something as dumb as animebytes. Don't let yourself get fucked over by leechers.
Also if they're begging for an invite or asking for HDD leaks in the thread, that's a red flag of someone you don't want to associate with anyways
>oh hey registrations are open
>have to fill out a fucking questionnaire like im applying for a goddamn job
Elitism like that is why i fucking hate most private trackers.
Is there even anything worthwhile on there that you cant find on Nyaa or Boxtorrents?
Probably, I just went there for Ever 17, this was at the time it wasn't reuploaded everywhere and the company that made it went down. I haven't downloaded anything for years and I only log in every few months so my account doesn't get auto banned.
>Fill out the questionnaire
I've never heard of anyone who failed it, if you put any amount of effort into it. It's just a matter of seeing who is willing to fill it out. I put Naruto as one of my 5 favorite animes.
Coincidentally I got a dirty android album from there. That was a nice snatch.
The thing that bothers me the most about LR2 charts especially of the higher insane/overjoy chart is they always start off fine, the chart looks pretty fun, the song is not that bad and then it suddenly shits itself.
What the fuck is this shit
I've given invites out here a few times, I've never had any go sour. I just like to talk to the people a bit outside /jp/, ask them a bunch about rhythm games and how they got into them, just get to know them as a person and that's usually enough to know someone won't be stupid with their ratio.
I love rhythm games and I love helping new people get into them, I don't understand how people can be so elitist
I didn't know what I was getting into, ban me if you need too, I just don't want to fuck up the community any more. Sorry, I'm fucking illiterate when it comes to torrents and stuff, I just thought it was a place to get Bemani shit, wasn't really sure what Sows was all about. Thank you for giving me a shot and I'm sorry I fucked everything up, if this means anything here.
I'm just trying to get into IIDX and its so hard to get all the shit I need to. I kept hearing that sows was the place to be in for bemani shit but wasn't really sure what it was all about. I don't know how to torrent and how to deal with that kind of shit so kick me out so I don't fuck up the community. I don't want to harm the rhythm game community at all.
>and the high amount of edm/hardcore shit is far more alarming than one denpa track and dynamite
but that's what IIDX is for, it's a DJ Sim (kind of), and DJs play that type of music.
I don't feel so bad about playing IIDX anymore knowing some of these new songs.
I last played Pendual when it was new in Japan and it was good but I haven't played any IIDX since.
Sometimes I play old IIDX (RED and older but usually not even newer than 5th or 6th, 4th is my most played) but I haven't done that lately, because it just makes me really nostalgic for when those games were new, and the nostalgia leads to me getting ridiculously depressed and I usually end up doing a bunch of drugs and blacking out, so I've been avoiding rhythm games with older songs. Kinda sucks because those songs were my favorite ones.
bemani players stopped caring about FC after you could get a Good and your combo kept going
i actually remember being very angry the first time this happened to me on DDR X or whatever it started on
Yes, just be patient, download either freeleech or really small files when you begin, don't go for gigabytes of download when you begin and you'll be fine, just have a slow start.
My internet is crap and i can keep a ratio of 2.4 without issues.
obvious bait but fuckit i want to hash this out
In IIDX, an FC is one of several milestones towards mastery of a chart, starting from A rank and generally ending at all Greats/PGreats - where an FC lies on that road is debatable. Hitting any milestone is cause for celebration, and it's ok if you don't hit the later milestones on a chart until you come back to it later. All milestones result in better rankings by extension, but rankings don't even matter that much on offocial e-amuse because they get wiped every year anyways. This all leads to a situation where the only person who can judge your skill accurately is yourself, so it's perfectly fine to improve at your own pace because no one would ever fucking know.
In Osu there are also multiple milestones, but an FC is the first significant one by a huge margin, and is considered the "first" due to the huge pp boost in comparison to an A rank. SS is cool too, but it doesn't bring as large of a pp increase. So you end up with a community that thinks "FC or quit," which is not a healthy mindset for anyone involved.
To peppy's credit, he's downplaying the importance of combo with ppv2, but the huge rankings circlejerk still remains. It's far better to judge oneself by "I A-ranked this beatmap I was struggling on," than by "I gained 1000 rank by pp farming anime OPs all night."
>So you end up with a community that thinks "FC or quit,"
I mean, the scoring system is the direct cause of that.
It's been discussed to death, no one enjoys grinding plays until you get no misses and keeping accuracy as an afterthought.
>3.95 on cabinet
But 3.95 doesn't have as many features as oITG or SM5. OpenITG is the best suited for cabinets, at least until SM5 gets better USB support.
Unless you don't care about USB profile saving and all that stuff.
>Local ITG cab refuses to change to life 4 for no reason other than the fact that Zaia insists on it (who hasn't played on it in months), or wanting to clear songs they otherwise can't clear
Fucken casuals tbqhwu senpai
This >>14661430 anon again. It is not a matter of elitism but just safety. A lot of people are greedy and if they fuck up on sows I lose my account, I don't want to risk that.
It's not elitism to ask for proof that they can be on trackers without being a huge cunt like >>14661183 . I've added 9 anons from this thread already.
Yes, even if you're seeding kb/s as long as you're seeding you can get points which you can turn in for more ratio. Not to mention the tons of freeleach stuff.
Alternatively if your internet is really that shitty or you don't want to seed 24/7 just buy a seedbox if you have the extra funds. The average seedbox is like $10-15 a month.
I used feral hosting if you are looking for a suggestion.
Thanks for your replies. So the important thing is to not stop seeding.
Also by lurking on these threads I learned why it's not that easy to get into sows and the reason they remain private (and why they don't even like screenshots outside there).
It's risky to invite people without knowing them, like the one in >>14661183
, who could be an ignorant or just an asshole.
I'll leave my mail but I as I said I've never been on a private tracker so I don't have proof.
It's up to you if you invite me or not.
>there's only one store in the entire fucking continent that sells impact gaming products and it's nowhere near me
>literally nothing on ebay except for these cheapo chink ripoffs
Theres the trick of the laying one of those plastic sheets that you normally use to protect your carpet from desk chairs on top of a cheapo softpad to make it slightly less shit.
Precision Dance pads do ship world wide but have a flat shipping fee of $150 out side the US.

pretty self explanatory
osufag here, I agree/confirm. Random misses and stupid stuff holding me back from fcing makes me decay in ranking / not gaining anything from playing the game. FeelsBadMan when the MLP DT pp farming faggots are higher in ranking than you with 93% acc. I have about 98.5% btw
damn technorch posts so much questionable shit on twitter he had to make an invite-only twitter with auto-accept to not be banned
I guess it's the guy who got his album banned from literally everywhere for being hard guro
We could be friends.
If you're in Sydney or Brisbane, there's half decent ITG cabs if you don't mind spending money per credit. Sydney one's in the Timezone near Event, the Brisbane one is at iPlay on Albert St. Both seem to have some kind of community around them.
K-shoot is extremely easy to set up, just download, extract and you're ready to go, the game has the input gate which lets you download songs that you could say are "official" or you can otherwise just download them from elsewhere and put them into the songs folder.
You can only use one mouse with Kshoot afaik though, but you can bind each of the lasers to two keys for left and right turns.
I agree, to an extent.

jesus christ how do I fix my timing? how do I know if its my green number white number or offset thats fucking me? if I put offset to .2 my shits fast and .3 my shits slow my monitor checks are always between 60.0010-20 green number 318-333 white number I have no idea I just move it around randomly and don't see a difference in my timing between 100-170
PLEASE HELP BEFORE I KILL MYSELF
choose a common bpm like 150 or 180
find a bunch of songs of the same level in that bpm
play them without messing with your offset
if you consistently get too many fasts or too many slows across all of them then you might have a problem
otherwise your timing just sucks
any idea what else i could write? it's about the chrismas special they did
how'd you fuck up that hard?
sound voltex and by extension kshootmania isn't a very hard game relatively. In fact I say it's one of the easier ones, it just has the wow factor of being very different and looks very intense.
I don't know about hardest but I think pop'n music is the hardest, those high end charts are just absolute bullshit.
repeatedly jabbing the turntable with the edge of my pinky apparently caused enough friction to cut it open
i meant i started trying to wrist scratch after my pinky got cut
It's an anachronism from Ouendan/EBA which never got changed and then stuck because no one wanted their scores wiped. pp was supposed to help with that on global rankings but it's so heavily combo based anyways that nothing changed.
Playing DP at a high level can put a lot of strain on your hands. Even a few days after a long session my hands can still hurt.
Also the worst is when you move your hand over to the disc and hit the metal part in the middle with your pinky. God damn it that hurts.
Term 'music game' was invited by narrow minded arcade players. Then they presented with rhythm game with different concept from arcade games, they just say it isn't a rhythm game, but music game. Thus, arcades are stay as home and origin of unique games and everyone else is just copycat trash.
I still think the terms are useful. Generally I classify a game that's structured around specific songs as a rhythm game, and games that use the music for some other end as a music game.
