o.o how. I could easily understand ring fingers, or even middle fingers to some degree, but indexes?
Yeah I know it's weird really. But when I play my prominent "motions" are in my wrist and forearm. I barely move my fingers at all (floating wrists). So really they should all be equal but for some reason or an other most the notes i miss are at my indexes. Whether a mental or physical issue, their my weakest fingers and I don't really know why :/

Hey, I just read through this whole thread to see if anybody asked the same thing I was gonna ask, but I didn't seem to find anything like that, just the opposite.

Basically, this happened to me four or five times during my osu career (I play mania for about nine months now). In this rare instance, I get into these...states of mind and ability that I can beat songs that are MUCH harder than my usual skill cap and I get crazily better scores on my high scores if I play all my favorite songs when I get into that state.
Like, an example when I first had that...at that time my skill cap was that HD difficulty of Megistune 4k, and I couldn't even play MX diff without failing, but that one time where I got into the state, i FCed high scores on so many songs and got an A score on the Megistune MX difficulty I couldn't usually even pass!!!

On one side, I feel bad when I get into these states, because I literally rape al much high scores and the next day when that "state" ends, I'm back to my old skillcap and I feel like I don't deserve those newly obtained high scores

I should also mention that I was NOT under the influence of any drugs while in the states, they come completely random (same sleeping pattern, lifestyle, everything's the same)
Can anybody relate to this? I feel frustrated because of this because I play so well when it happens..and when it ends I'm just back to being at my usual skillcap..
Yeah that's completely normal. Normally to me when that happens, I've been previously stuck at a "skill wall" and those moments indicates I've broken through and will start improving steadily again until the next one ^^

These sparks of genius sometimes happen on certain people. As for me, it happens very rarely but I get to achieve and retain, if not, a bit less than the improvement I get. The improvement I never get to retain is high accuracy *looks at Haryu Extra high score *cries

People experience it hahaha

Yeah it happens to me every 2 months or so, I start beating most of my highscores and it ends up resulting in a fair bit of improvement. It happens. Though the more you improve the less you'll be experiencing those skill boosts moments. As a newbie it used to happen every few days haha.

Exactly the same here. Haven't had one of those days in ages though :<

is it just me who found out i can warmup really quick by playing a mix between osu standard and mania and then improve faster also?

laishiou confirmed for weird.

But seriously, I know that wouldn't work for me.

I actually slightly improve in osu standard jump-heavy songs when i spent some time playing O2jam or 7k mania, but not the other way around unfortunately >:(

Not at all for me :x and I'd consider myself decent at standard.. :(

In my case I get slightly better, especially in accuracy, after mapping/charting something for a while.

When you guys play 7K songs, and you have a "(space) J" chord, you usually press it with your thumb and your pointer finger. But what if it's a "F (space)" chord, do you still use the same thumb, or do you switch thumbs depending on the other notes in that chord? I always use the same thumb and i've recently thought about this, if anyone interchanges thumbs depending on the notes.
posted
I personally never ever used my other thumb for the spacebar no matter what.

Most players use the thumb on their dominant hand (right thumb if right handed, left thumb if left handed). There are a few people who play alternating thumbs, but it's pretty rare.

Also, instead of referring to keys by whatever key you're using, refer to them by their column number. For example, f+space would be 34, and space+j would be 45.

Using this system:

S = 1, D = 2, F = 3, Space = 4, J = 5, K = 6, L = 7

If you want to refer to a pattern rather than a single chord such as S+D then D+F after, that would be 12/23, using the slash to separate the chords.

That makes sense, thank you! I'll use that in the future now! :)

Makes it easy to talk about patterns in any key mode without caring what keys everyone actually uses.

So i know this guide is supposed to help you get better, but how? I mean do I play hard songs on half time constantly until i CAN play it without? Or should I grind a song that is slightly challenging to me but I can complete?

On a side note, I'm having trouble reading and getting used to combinations of holds + short notes. I can read lots of shorts and lots of long notes individually pretty easily but i suck absolute crap when they're combined. Anyone have a good beatmap to practice and get over this?

Mixing noodles with regular hits is challenging for everyone, I can say from personal experience it requires a lot of concentration.

At your level, I'd suggest playing Advanced level 4k charts with holds in them.

It always takes a while to get that down. Don't grind plays on maps just to pass a specific map or 2, if you stop playing those maps so often you will usually lose the ability to pass them.

Try to find as many maps as you can that have the kind of patterns that give you trouble and play all of them. The less often you play each map, the better. By doing this you will get used to many different kinds patterns instead of only the patterns in one or 2 songs. If you can almost pass something, just slap nofail on and play it that way, and when the part that kills you comes up, just try as hard as you can to get as much of it as you can. Use random as well. The less often you see the same exact patterns, the better. This trains you to sightread patterns, instead of relying on playing a song a few times to learn the patterns before you can play your best, you can play your best right away, first try.

It will feel slower at first, but this kind of practice gives you long lasting skill increase.

tbh grinding maps that sound fun is alright, practising it once or twice everytime you play to that degree is alright if its something you are working to be better in but never keep playing the song over and over you are just going to repeat the same mistakes you gain more consistency by taking a break and working on other maps forgetting the mistakes you made

I don't really get the visual tune thing. I played a easy song 3 times with the sound off and the hidden mod on. I kind of see a pattern of a sort, but I'm not really sure where the xF.ini file is though... :?
