The combo colours problem will be solved in the next build edit: I read wrong, anyway there's going to be a colourblind mode that changes the combo colours into something that contrasts with the BG, at least I read peppy say that in Feature Requests

there's literally no justification to deleting BGs anymore
If this is actually going to be implemented I won't even be complaining inside my own head anymore.


Btw, accuracy doesn't suck per se if you practice only by trying to pass impossible maps. I did that, and it worked out pretty well... and fast. :)
(As long as you actually try to get a good accuracy. Even if one can't pass a map one should still always try to understand and hit the rythm perfectly.)

you're silly
what's so retarded about a no bg/sb option?

About accuracy, I've been improving at it lately ever since I started playing HR. I tend to get >97% accuracy on easy Insanes and even >99% sometimes, usually maps with AR9 and OD7 though. I guess that's because I'm starting to get used to high OD, wonder if anyone experienced the same thing as me.

Also, refer to my signature and try out all of the maps with "SP" in their 'style' on the listing, this will help you train spacing accuracy. If you couldn't pass a map on first try, use nofail on the second run, don't just retry a million times because that's just a waste of time. Play it once and move on to other maps, return to it much later once you got better.
I tried some beatmaps from your list and I failed them as fast as Sacrifice. Too fast for me :(

Try to rankwhore, it will improve your skills a lot.

Don't do this too much. It's how people get stuck on the easier insane maps, people start to believe because they are ranking maps they should be pro but the fact is they are simply playing easy to rank maps and not pushing themselves. It's good in moderation.

I was making good progress on my hards and feeling more like I was transitioning to insanes. Then I got a tablet today. I feel like I'm back to day 1 trying to get used to it, but I suppose that's to be expected. It's not like I'll be pro at using a tablet the day I take it out the box, I expected I'd take a while to adjust to it. But now I'm just practicing normals again to get used to the feel of a tablet and feelin like it's a step down.

Inspiration, anyone? How long did it take you to get used to the switch from mouse to tablet.

1 day or 2 at most, worst possible scenario = a week or two.

Try playing maps that involve a lot of cursor movement, it should be quite fast, like you gonna see huge changes in a few hours. Use No Fail if necessary.

Well I can say I see a noticeable improvement in how my tablet handles jumps and I'm slowly getting my accuracy back. I'll try moving to hards again in about an hour or so.

Edit - Also, how2spin faster with tablet? On Mouse I worked around a technique to spin pretty fast, tablet is going half the speed right now.

Learned tablet by day 2.

Try to spin really small circles near the middle of the spinner.

Well it only took me a few hours before I started getting back up to the level of my mouse it just felt natural, insanes are somewhat easier, but I couldn't seem to hover or spin good with full area so I experimented with portion after a few days on full and did about 80% of the full area. Everything felt much more easier, spinning was consistent, I rarely dragged the tip, and jumps felt a lot more easier. Though everything felt perfect at portion I decided to go back to full since every comment I read says it's best to learn full area in the long run, even friends who use portion recommended I play full. So here I am today adjusted back to full area which felt extremely slow at the beginning, but i'm now used to it except for spinning, it's so damn slow.

Anyone have tips for hovering? Or is it the same ole practice makes perfect for me?

Oh and I got this tablet a few days ago from a friend, I did order a tablet from amazon, but it got stolen or tracking misplaced it idk haha. Thanks DNK777

You'll develop a technique, eventually, and easily spin over 400.

Spinning with a tablet uses different muscles and that's why it takes time to get used to it for most people

not really. I can spin 450+ with tablet. I just don't use a tablet.

U mad?

The real way to increase cursor precision:
mouse player: set DPI lower than 800, 6/11 and disable mouse precision in windows, and 1.0 in game.
tablet player: use full area (pen mode).
That's all.
Oh, and don't forget to delete dim the backgrounds while playing HR or HD.

To hell with full area.

The truth.

I use 900 though, found it OK for me.

Unless you have a large screen, then you might need higher DPI.

You guys really should try 400dpi, it's really great \o/
