Cause everyone forgets BMS and O2Jam.
So I have 1st Style to EMPRESS on BMS all set to Easy judge rank. I've figured out how to make them Normal but it would be a fucking pain in the ass to chance every single chart.
Is there a way to change them all easily or even some key combination in game?
Hopefully it will be better once infinitas comes out, and konami shuts down the mayumi cum factory. Right now a good portion of the english speaking fan base is hidden away on an invite only forum. The community would be better as a whole if we gathered on a central public forum and removed all the hiearcheal invite crap. Not sure what the equivalent is today, but back in the day bemanistyle forums was really nice.
If you keep making the hi speed higher and higher, you're bound to get some ghosting at one point.
Sudden+ exist so that you can can still plays slow songs with a short reaction time, more over your eyes can focus on a shorter lenght, which allows you to time a lot more consistently.
Try copy pasting mine:
If it doesn't work you can try to download from:
and try again.
You should get every bms post-10th style from bms terminal, they already have the judgerank normal.
I can't be bothered to help you for CS exclusives and Black another, so you'll have to change those yourself.
Hi speed has two purposes: to spread the notes out, and to have less notes onscreen at once so it's easier to read. The issue is hi speed adjusts both of these proportionally, so the purpose of a lane cover is to ket you adjust them separately.
If you want a lot fewer notes on the screen at once but don't want to have to focus on the whole vertical segment and see them ghosting from moving so fast, you use the lane cover.
BMS insane kaidens who are training for angelic layer and maniera play with S random A LOT, but that isn't until you are at the VERY end of the game and if you are talking about IIDX than the answer is no, there is nobody who seriously plays S-random
Because it's a shit game, but you won't be stopping after years of practice. The feeling you have when you know it's shit, but can't stop is making people mentally unstable like any other stupid addiction. The sooner you realize how shitty it is you can drop all your illusions of happy community comparing scores. They don't mean shit and being better than others in rhythm games is literally the most pointless thing in life. If you're new, quit now. Otherwise either find few friends and play and avoid the community completely. You're not going to find intelligent or fun discussions over pretty bad music anyways.
If there's any problem with english speaking community it's the idea of having a community. There isn't anything better anywhere in the world. People generally stick to few tiny groups and that's it. If you can't enjoy the game as it is, don't bother. Having a need to talk to someone over pressing buttons is kinda ridiculous in the first place. I mean, seriously now.
I play most servers. Won't post my username though.
Well, it wouldn't change the fact you're already mentally unstable and if you need some specific type of feedback to feel better it can't be any good for decent community where you get the taste of both sides, one of which you may not like at all thus leading to shitstorms and what not
Yes, to get into.
You literally just press the buttons at the time they cross the red line and scratchyscratch at the right time.
For some reason this becomes incredibly difficult at higher levels.
Well it's more than partially because, as evidenced by the other replies to this, they're convinced that "rhythm games": just means "Beatmania." If they opened their minds to trying other rhythm games, they might remember that there was once a time when rhythm games were fun instead of obsessing over spreadsheets of songs and breaking the ten wall. Beatmania is not the only rhythm game out there, and it's more of a chore than any other.
There are a bunch, if you're not a "fun is a buzzword" dickhead. Deemo, Cytus, Hachi Hachi (search for the apk), Groove Coaster, Dynamix, OverRapid, Tone Sphere, and O2Jam are the ones I play the most. You can also get DJMax Ray and DJMax Technika Q, but they're the absolute worst sorts of moneygrabs so don't bother with them unless you're prepared to sink a shitload of money into em. You can also get Andjuist Extend off of rutracker for a Jubeat emulator, it's a bitch to get and you have to change the sync frequently but it's alright, and Maipad Mini is a MaiMai emulator but it's a bitch to get songs in and most of them, only have master charts. I have a pack of like 90 of them, including a few I put together myself, and I'd be happy to uplopad them for anybody interested, but keep in mind you'll have to change the sync for each one manually in their respective maidata files. It took forever, but it was so fucking worth it.
iGotchu. Gimme a bit to get it off my tablet, compressed, and uploaded. For background, the game has a small closed group on Facebook that I tried to join andd then months later got accepted to, and so far it's the only place I've found that actually has these things available as an easy download. To get a song working you have to get the maidata and rip a youtube video of the song, then manually sync the two in the maidata because lord knows having the ability to do that in-app would be too convenient. Here's a video of it in action (not my gameplay) to tide you over: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4I1UNmaNGfY
Sadly no. However, it IS available on iOS. It's one of the few reasons I want an iPad, along with CrossXBeats and Jubeat (because though Andjuist is functional, it's incomplete and a hassle in comparison to the official iOS version).
Okay, here we go:
So, instructions. First, grab Maipad Mini from the play store Once it's installed, navigate to the maipadmini folder, it should be in SDcard or whatever the root of your device is. It'll have a folder labeled "score," which is what I uploaded for y'all. Unpack the rar into maipadmini and everything should fall into place, but essentially you want all the song folders and filelist.txt in the score folder. Now comes the shitty part: in each folder, you'll find track.mp3 and maidata.txt. For each song, you have to open maidata.txt and change the &wait= section to the proper sync for your device ( I uploaded a picture for reference). There's no easy way to know exactly what the proper sync is, you just have to playtest a bunch. I recommend starting with Bad Apple, because it's easy to figure out if you're synced or not with the opening of the song and once you figure it out there, you can use the same number for *MOST* of the other songs. Some of them will still be off, but that'll generally get all the toohoo songs synced and you can fix the other ones as you play them and catch the offset.
Yes, it's a bitch of a lot of work, but if you do it once you're all set and then BAM MaiMai at home kinda sorta. It's a grand total of 98 songs not including the tutorial thing. I think. I may have lost count, so it may be 108. It's enough though.
Kind of related to what's happening right now
I've never played Maimai but might get into it in the future
Is there any way to turn off those sparkles and noises that happen on those slide and hold notes they're incredibly annoying when I watch gameplay
if so, how? I've never used a machine.
tbh I have no idea, I don't have one myself. I'm saving for one solely for rhythm games tho. Those are worth it on their own, but it has a few other exclusives I'm curious about as well as fewer issues with sync.
I'm pretty sure you can, a lot of players use the sounds but I've seen videos where they don't have it.
You can still use the keys to change it in large increments
double tap start button to turn off sudden, then hit effect to modify floating hi-speed
double tap start button to bring the lane cover back
Yes and no. It does technically have jubeat, but the jubeat release on Android is only compatible with a small handful of devices, most of them older. If you happen to own one of those devices then sure, feel free to download the official release and pay a fortune to unlock a worthwhile amount of songs. Otherwise, get Andjuist / an iPad. You'll probably still have to pay a fortune to get all the tracks (wouldn't know for sure, never played it on iOS), but at least it'll work properly.
No problem man, glad it helps! I held off for the longest time for the same reason, I just hope the link gets spread around so more people get a chance to try it.
Seriously? Where?? I would worship the ground you walk on if you can provide a link.
Well fuck, I don't have a SOWS account. Never really realized it had things other than AC data and soundtracks so I never bothered, not even sure how to get in. Is there any chance you'd be able to upload it to a different host or something? I'm sure your answer is no but it can't hurt to ask. I'm the guy who shared the Maipad pack if that helps in any sense, though I'm doubtful of that as well.
ipad 1 is fine, miss out on a couple small things like restarting from the pause menu, but all the songs are available.
There's a DLC crack floating around on sows somewhere if you're cheap.
I gave a friend a sows invite, but he says he hasn't received it (sent it about 18 hours ago). What happens if I click 'delete invite', do I get the invite credit back and can try resending it?
Alternatively, what happens if I let the invite timer expire? It's currently 2 days 7 hours remaining
To those of you who play LR2 with keyboard, how do you handle scratching? Jamming shift with my pinkie messes up the rest of my left hand's movements and dual shift seems really unintuitive. I feel like I'm missing something.
Should I just find a chart with a lot of scratching and grind? Does it get better with time or will it always feel like a handicap?
Considering switching to my arcade stick at this rate.
BMS: jhlee0133 / byebyebye or whatever his name is
Stepmania: Probably Etienne or Staiain
IIDX: DOLCE. or Rag
o2noodle: Genesis maybe?
I only play BMS and Stepmania so I don't have that good of an idea at who's best outside of those.
I recently bought a Windows tablet for school, and I'm wondering if there are any touch-based rhythm games available for Windows? Something like jubeat and maimai, which appears to only have android/iPad releases.
I think there's a reflec beat sim called reflec muse for Windows which might work.
I wonder what the cheapest Windows tablet I could get that could run Reflec beat or jubet AC data.
I have genuinely no idea, I've never played those or really looked at their communities. Maybe PmD Terra for SDVX? I seriously don't know.
Is there a generally agreed upon best PMS player? Also is there anyone here that plays PMS/Pop'n with a keyboard? If so what kind of layout for your keys are you using?
He probably didn't have a gauge boosting character set. Also failing isn't such a big deal unless it's a 課題曲 since it'll still let you continue.
It is a bit of an annoying quirk though.
How do I change my DJ name in iidx? I can't find where on the Konami website I need to go to change it.
When I first input it I didn't know which button was delete so my name looks really stupid with like 10 S'
Well you're in luck, because there is a way to niggerrig an ASC!
tl;dr buy a keyboard or find one laying around if you have one
Put in in its original cardboard box, or simply get a large cardboard box (for free!) from the USPS.
(This is technically illegal but yeah.)
Put keyboard in the box. Cut holes on top of the box. Put tennis ball halves into the holes. Remove keys on the keyboard that don't correspond to the tennis ball halves.
Bind in bemanitools/LR2 with PMS 9k charts. Enjoy.
Post your rhythm game Halloween costumes /jp/!
I have a couple questions for you all:
Are there any good rhythm games for tablets?
Which tablets (ios/android) have the most/best rhythm games available on them?
I'm looking into buying a tablet soon and I was curious to find out which one had better support.
hello /jp/ i'm that guy in one of the previous threads that was asking for sdvx level 13s for starters
went to the arcade again after that and managed to pass one of the lower 80 pass rates for 13s and got my 5 dan as well
average scores are about 930k for ~82% pass rates and about AAs for some ~90%
one of the 13s i seem to have trouble with is 気まぐれスターダム, one of the easier 13s by tokotokoP
been thinking about getting into playing some 14s after 2 more trips, any easier 14s to get started on?
13s are all generally around the same difficulty, 14 is when the difficulty starts getting really broad so that's where you're actually going to have trouble. some 14s you will be able to AA easy on your first try and some 14s you'll have no chance until you practice a ton more. For starters, almost any Kemu song would be good, they are generally on the easier side of the 14 scale. Also, 六兆年と一夜物語, 腐れ外道とチョコレゐト and TRIGGERHAPPY are some of the easiest ones, so give those a try.
IIDX is fun if you just play casually. I'm playing 9s and 10s right now after like 2 years of playing since I don't play often and when I do it's more just to relax and hit some buttons than to improve
>Yeah, IIDX is about as much fun as burning to death.
Why do you play it then? I've been playing for a year now and it's still exponentially more fun than any other arcade or rhythm game I've ever played.
Arcade in Auckland, New Zealand. Only place with a IIDX popN or Taiko cab, best arcade in the country. They had Linicle, Jubeat Saucer, Chinese Jubeat, Taiko 11, Taiko 14, DDR 3x vs, popN 19 (?) As well as a bunch of other fighting and other classic arcade games. They apparently has Sdxv 2 and Spada cabs but they didnt ever se them up fot some reason.
Im going to investigate buying taiko 14 or maybe Sdvx 2 but I dont think I can afford it.
someone bought all of the cabinets
tuxdude said that some people including him were reuniting money to buy the ez2dj and iidx cabs from him to put them in a new arcade, and both cabs costed 800 new zealand dollars in total
800 for two cabs is really really cheap. I would want the IIDX cab but I already have a controller so I dont really need it, Taiko you cant really emulate properly at home so thatd be my first choice
I play with my fingers resting on ASD for keys 123, and JKL; for 567 and scratch. I have key4 bound to F and H, so when I need to hit key4 I bring over my index finger to that key.
Note: I'm bad at 7key, the I can clear 9s at most. I've easy cleared a pretty easy 10, that's the highest I can do.
I know of at least one player who plays ASDFJKL and then uses ; and Space for scratch.
There's a script.
Put .bat and .vbs in your bms folder(e.g. LR2/songs/sirius), run bat and it will copy judgenormal bms into new «~» folder.
not the guy you're replying to
is it like the feeling when you're trying to find something and you know you've already checked the top drawer but you recheck it 3 times just to see if it's there
then in desperation you check like the refrigerator aka going through /jp/ archives
How do I hit stairs? Anytime they come up my brain blanks out and I end up mashing like a retard because I struggle to read them for some reason, specifically when they involve lane 4.
>practice stairs before the song start
Not him, but this sounds like good idea to try.
I usually just mash alternating hands (123 - 4567) or roll between 1357 and 246 while I'm waiting.
That's easy, dude.
How the H*CK am I supposed to do this though?
All it does is shuffle the lanes around
for example a trill that used to be 1313131313 might now be 7474747474
The reason why I said praludium is fun is because the chart is a bunch of 1357 or similar scales and on random now it's basically a stream of notes
PC: If you don't want to buy a controller, osu!mania is fine but really easy, LR2/IIDX if you want some challenge but it's so much better with a controller. If you are ok with buying a controller, K-Shoot Mania/SDVX
iPad: Jubeat and Reflec Beat which both are cracked in piggy place.
>not just LR2 with keyboard
LR2 doesn't HAVE to be a IIDX simulator, plenty of people just play asdf space jkl or something else, at which point it's basically a better osu!mania
Also GF/DM are fine to start with since you liked rockband, but good luck finding a cab in the US.
LR2 and Stepmania are your best bets, I'm assuming you're wanting to play some rhythm games with keyboard. With LR2 you can configure the buttons to be SDF space JKL and A/; to be the scratch (that's the red note to the left or right of the rest of the buttons). LR2 is also good because you can also play 9k/PMS which is also fun. To get started with BMS, look for the "bms spackage", it's around 2-3GB and it'll give you a taste for LR2/BMS. Keyboard Stepmania is a lot of fun too, but I would recommend you try to get into 7k before getting into games with less buttons.
Here is some keyboard stepmania: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTa_yBnlgY8
Some keyboard LR2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KzyRnz9SKI (this guy is using a skin, this isn't what default LR2 looks like.)
And some keyboard PMS (still is still LR2). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9XiVZ3u6PI
Well, since DJMax Trilogy has more playing styles (4k, 5k, 6k, 7k and 8k) I tend to recommend it more to people who never played any rhythm games because you can start "easy", with less buttons to press and work your way to the top. If the person enjoys the game then I can recommend LR2 and controllers and everything else.
I remember someone asking about this pad in a previous thread and receiving no answers. I received mine and played 3 sessions so far, and I'd recommend it if you don't want to invest more than 100$ in a dance pad. It's more responsive than my generic pad that came with DDR on the Wii, and it's a lot more comfortable to step on with the foam. The quality of the thing looks like it's worth the price, let's just hope the connections of the buttons don't die within a year
I live in Canada and the cheapest shipping option for me was 22$USD. It's a usb controller (sadly it's not detachable so I don't think it would be easily replacable). It's windows/linux compatible plug and play, and I think you have to pay 10$ more for the mac version (but why the fuck would you play on a mac). I use it to play LR2 on my laptop hooked on my TV
This is probably true, but I'm lazy and mainly want to play casually to get fit (IIDX is still my main rhythm game) and I suck with building/assembling shit and really lack tools at home, so I couldn't bother to look it up. But if you got time, tools and motivation this is prbably a best option
>your 20ppr encoders finally shit the bed
>no amount of software debugging and fucking with the polling rate will bring them back to life
>you can't tell if it's the encoders or the shitty chinese knockoff arduino or just your incompetent coding that's the problem
rip sdvx setup you will be missed
thats bullshit i started playing iidx bms files in some shitty bms emulator on the keyboard for like a year before i found out about lr2 then fell in love
another year went by and i got a ps2 controller and modded my ps2 so i could play iidx cs games on a crt
then i got a job and then came tax season, thats when i got my dao
now im sitting here raging at getting 1079/1081 EXHC FAIL on Verfluct [h] and punching holes in my walls over holic [a]
honestly i just farmed clear lamps on my 10s folder while dipping down to 9s for EXHCs and playing 9s HC Rands for warm up/down.
basically play the whole 10s folder, then sort it by clear ramp and play through all the fails. since theres a fuck ton of them you could probably do this over and over again for a little while until you just dont seem to make any progress/are at a small amount left to normal clear then start hard clearing some while trying some easier 11s on easy clear.
Bepachi music. i honestly dont remember how i found it but thats what i used for quite some time while playing on iidx bms files up to empress (since sirius wasnt out at the time)
>just realized copula comes out on veterans day
>get to stay in bed and play pendual all day because no class that day
okay so at the song select you see the lights to the left of songs that you've played?
black = no play
flashing red = failed
steady blue/yellow/red (color of difficulty) = normal clear (groove gauge - pass with 80% or more life)
white = hard clear (survival gauge - start at 100%, if you reach 0% you fail)
flashing yellow/white = EX-Hard clear (same as survival gauge but you lose 33% hp or something on each miss, and a lose a little life if you get goods)
rainbow = Full Combo
Yes, it's a fun game in its own right. I personally prefer it over LR2 because the charting style is more friendly to keyboard in my opinion, no crazy 1-handed patterns until the higher end stuff/no scratch. The music is also pretty good.
LR2 is the best PC game to get into overall but Trilogy is good in its own right. Have fun with the grind, though.
