Hello Everyone ^~^
This is my first post asking for help, so if this is the wrong place to write this, please move the post or delete it..
I have been playing osu!Mania (4k only) for around 2 months 'properly' now and played every day at least one or two hours.
After getting quick progress in the first month up to 1.8ish stars, I've been sitting around 2 stars for a long time and just a couple days ago, started to get a little bit better again.
My main problem i realised, is that when I am playing shorter songs (with more quicker following single/ long+single notes???), my hands starts to cramp a bit and I feel like my hands/wrists are moving a bit upwards, so that my bottom palm (right at the wrist) and my thumbs aren't touching the keyboard anymore and I loose control of the keys.
I am using D F J K and a Steelseries Apex350 (Not mechanical).
So my questions are:
- Should I maybe change the key bindings (DFJK), so that the keys are lower towards the bottom and I could use the desk as a support? But won't the same thing happen as if I rest it on the Keyboard?
- Does anyone have experience with this keyboard, or a similar one? Also, is a mechanical keyboard on my skill level still making a drastic difference (=worth it)?
- What do you do when your hands start to cramp? I am currently using two elastic wrist bandages (with thumb hole), so that the problems in my wrist are mostly gone now, but I start to have pain in the actual fingers :O
- Does anyone actually have the problem too, that they loose the support and with that the key control? I was thinking to maybe take some textiles and make a little loop, to put my thumb in and tape it onto the keyboard so it won't move but I doubt that's a good solution...
So anyways, thank you so much for even reading till here, I can't wait to read tips that might be helpful because I am honestly starting to feel so helpless about it!
