An option for mappers to disable the star fountain for a Kiai section. Just start the flashing and cursor effects.

An option for mappers to double/half the flash rate per section.

An option, available to players, to dim the background during Kiai Time. This is not a disabler. Some maps abuse Kiai Time with light backdrops to white out the screen and keep the player from seeing what they're supposed to do.

An option, available to players, to disable cursor stars during spinners. If you make small circles, the cursor just looks like a white blob and you can't keep it on center. This unfairly favours players who make large circles.

oh if this doesn't get insta rejected it will get massive support i bet ^_^

I agree on that one, it's super annoying when the flashing is abused, for example the La Roux - Tigerlily map, when playing Taiko every x2 note unleashes a flash and thats distracting as hell.

Support!

Agreed highly.

Disagreed highly. I spin small and have no issue with kiai spinners.

For your other requests, I don't support or oppose them.

Also, being able to third the flash rate would be nice.

I've mapped two songs now, one of them ranked, where I had to map a 6/8 song at 1/3rd BPM so the Kiai flashes don't blind people, but when I do that, sliders/drumrolls play really poorly in Taiko mode.

edit: I fail at quoting

I really think that what is needed is a slider in options than controls the density and opacity of all effects that use the kiai stars. I'm sure some people will always complain, but being able to tone it down (or turn it up) according to one's own preference would be a good compromise.

Your specific suggestions are all good as well though.

What about always shooting stars to the outside of the screen

This would be nice, but I also can't see why something that deserves flashing notes, wouldn't have the fountain, so I'm kinda neutral on this.

I agree, some maps may have the flashing too slow or fast depending on the point of the song.

Neutral, as this has never been a problem to me.

I'm the same as strager, I'm a small circle spinner and I'm just fine, I think the only people this would affect would be those who get extremely close to the center, who I assume would be able to have it under control since what they're doing without the kiai on still take much skill.

If you want to Kiai a chorus, and the chorus has a one-measure "lead-in" before the "big bang", you may want to have Kiai on that lead-in, too. Currently, there would be fountain splashes on the side at the beginning of the lead-in, but if that feature is implemented you could have fountain splashes only at the "big bang" part.

Also if you want to flash out more complex patterns.

...I spin large and I can't find my cursor after the spinner because of all the stars.

I would also like the converse, kiai fountain without the flashing. I know it can be done by using two sections right next to eachother but it's an annoying way to do it.

But possible, unlike its complement.

Weak support.

Awesome. I usually lose track of my cursor due to these stars and fancy things during kiai times.
