Well, i´ve been playing with this area for a week


I use osu in window mode too, so it´s very hard to be accurate, and in maps where the hitcircles are too small (CS>5) it is a real pain in ass, because i have a ridiculous small error margin and i can´t hit them accurately in any way.

So i was thinking about changing to full area, there is a lot of people playing that way and it works well for they.

It seems impossible to me, you need to do larger moves (but you have more error margin) and playing that way, aside i do it very bad because i need to large moves to everything (it kills me in jumps, fast sliders, etc...) my wrist ends hurt because i need to move the hand from one side to other of the area too fast (i don´t really know if a wristband would help) I don´t really see a way to playing with full area, i can´t even reach the corners.

How do they do to play that way?

I guess they just change the sensitivity in the game.
Which won't work for me since I got Windows 8.1, but it should be fine with any other version.

I don´t think it´s the sensitivity because in tablet the cursor moves where you put the pen.

I used to play full tablet are and fullscreen, the way it worked is I had to move my elbow and my wrist to reach certain places. My aim was quite good, except for cross-screen jumps, dues to my limited space in the position where i have my tablet. I had the advantage of resting my elbow, but if you have your tablet next to your keyboard, you would have to get used to lifting your arm and workn' on dem muscles son.

I've played full area since day 1 of osu! (both on my old tablet, then my new one. Both were large tablets--my current has a 10" by 6.25" in. active area). All I can really say is that you're just used to it, and if you play with it more you'll likely eventually get used to it. My arm doesn't get tired and my aim is alright compared to my other aspects, and I assume that's just because I'm so used to full area.

Don't know if it makes a difference but I have an odd setup--my tablet is in the center of my desk, then I've got one of those shelf things under the desk where my keyboard is (I never pull it out since I never look at my keyboard lol).

I can't understand how people play with a small area myself.

i used to think full area was impossible but then I actually spent longer than 10 minutes playing with it. instant improvement. Small area was so shit for me I almost went back to mouse.

Ye youre right I was somehow thinking about the mousemode of the tablet.

So if i want to play well with full area, i need to play with smaller areas first? (making my initial area bigger eventually)

i went from an area almost as small as yours to full instantly

I started out with a small area then gradually kept increasing the area by a little bit every week. When I got to bigger areas, my wrist would crack all the time but it doesn't crack anymore now since I guess I got used to it.

I played on a larger size without complaining about it being too hard.

protip: I got used to it

I used to use a small area and think full area was going to be way too hard, same as lowering my mouse dpi to 600 from 1800 when playing counterstrike. If you try it once in one huge jump you're obviously not going to able to use it properly off the bat.

When I lowered my mouse dpi I found it absolutely impossible to do 180's but after some time using 600dpi it became easy. The main issue was that I needed to use my wrist more, there's a bit of a technique change that won't come quickly.

change area to 2/3 of full. It's optimal. Fullarea for stupid people like me.

1. Set your Area on full area.
2. Don't give up on the first day and get used to it.
3. ???
4. You'll know why.

It's all a matter of time.

Uh no. Stfu.

i play with around 3/4 full area, if i go full i absolutely cannot reach the top corners of the screen so it's useless unless i want to have my hand free floating and go arm movement.

I have it at 2/3 of the area.

you don't need to set the area to full, just set it to the largest area you can reach the four corners. simple.

So what is the benefit to using full area exactly? I've seen a lot of talk about it, but I don't use it myself.

Whatever you're comfortable with.

Full area took a while to get used to for doing full screen jumps @200 bpm, but it certainly strengthened my arm for it; helped my spinning too. But that's me; I tried out all kinds of area sizes until I settled on full.
