Everyone uses such tiny areas, must be hard.

Edit: Just noticed YayMii and I have the same but reversed settings, kinda funny.
Impossible to get 16:10 at 768p ;_; (it's 1228.8 for the width so I just rounded up)

I'll probably switch to 1152x720 screen area with 1280x720 game window.

You can get more precise mapping by using the Mouse keys
[ Control Panel\Ease of Access\Ease of Access Center\Make the mouse easier to use ]

First I set the game window to the size I want my tablet to play with (I always use a 16:10 resolution) then I use the mouse keys to get a precise placement. Then I just switch the game to a 16:9 resolution and play on that.

I never change the tablet area. I really wish I had a bigger tablet so I could play on bigger resolutions and match the movements. I find if you're playing with a large resolution the inputs get misplaced because you're not moving the same distance as you are with your tablet.

If you practise enough, you create muscle memory, and you just have to make sure you place your hand in the right place on the tablet everytime when you're using small areas

I'm stuck with this. Can't go any smaller/bigger.


Isn't this area size really hard for you to do jumps on? Not to mention the random slider breaks?
Not necessarily.

Naturally I can't stand the sensitivity of full tablet area since I'm a high dpi mouse user. (and my screen is small) This area is pretty comfortable for me.

Took me pretty long to practice jumps tho.

For 3 years I used a tiny area and jumps weren't easy to be precise with. Yeah I was moving around quickly, but when tricky patterns came up I had to grip my pen to death to make sure I was precise. I realized playing full tablet just required more use of the arm instead of all fingers. Switching over was difficult at first, but after extensive playing with a full area it's very rewarding. I actually find it more fun too because you can really get into jumps.

I really would advise every play to play full tablet at least for a week to see how they feel about. Reducing the screen are and not the tablet area can make it more comfortable as well (if you're playing windowed that is). Fullscreen you can disabl GPU scaling and then lower the osu! Resolution until you feel comfortable with it.

I tried it once and it felt so wrong. I couldn't even finish a hard map.

1366x768 osu! window & 1920x1080 screen

I'm considering a smaller window and using full area since i'm using almost the entire tablet area that force proportions fits to anyways.

I used to have an area similar to Cookiezi's (my old area) and I noticed that my cursor was super-shaky when I played. It may have been my grip, but I noticed that it became much more steady and landing jumps were more reliable when I changed back to the settings that were default on my laptop (the screencap I posted earlier is replicating those settings on my desktop).

Osu: Full screen.

I tried Many areas (Including Full and one really small), but this is the one I like the most :3

Force proportions fixes that.

Osu resolution is fullscreen. When I play with forced proportions I get input delay, but the area is identical to with it on.

My area:

As you might have guessed, I play fullscreen (borderless).

Full area.

I used to play in a window, but since I switched to fullscreen I've found it so much easier to move around.

Maybe I should try out the full area sometime.

Too lazy to post pics.
I use the smallest area available, and put it near the center.

my area;
i think it's easier to play with a small area. well, it's a personal preference
easy and more inaccurate ;)

I'd love to learn to play with a bigger area for more accuracy... but... I'm too impatient to re-learn muscle memory
