lol really, how come it says 163, it's not even in minimum bpm range.

but how you gonna measure bpm if it is constantly changing? like these maps http://osu.ppy.sh/b/60743 http://osu.ppy.sh/b/100626 (i'm not sure though if it does)

yeah. Also Stuff like DeltaMAX and Stream and Jump compilations. They keep increasing the BPM. showing 190~ BPM (just guessing) as the average BPM in jesus' Deathstream compilation would make no sense, since it gets up to 270 BPM

In maps like that nothing that you would display would make sense, other than making a full list of all bpms that lasted for more than 15 seconds in a row, but has too much gui-clutter potential. Might as well just not have any extra bpm information for those and only show the min-max because that's the only thing that tells you anything vital in a compact way.

I don't think they will remove the BPM range. At least I hope they don't. Average BPM isn't accurate.

Do not remove useful information for non-useful information.

i don't even pay attention to the numbers after the bar.

I remember in IRC, Aqo was telling me it was most common BPM when I said it was the average BPM

Good times.

It's a common statistical mistake to apply mean where it doesn't belong, when mode or median are more appropriate as a representative of what's "average". This is one of those cases, the mode is far better. The current mean calculation is at best misleading, and is often nonsensical or way off (see the example image above, where the mean is outside of the range). At the very least, it still needs work.

As for measuring mode, I wouldn't go with ms, but with beats. Ties broken with the highest BPM seems appropriate.

Looks like most everyone, including myself, agrees with you. Why not make it a feature request?

Alright looks like this discussion has been settled.
