> Whats Osu?
Osu is a Rhythm game of which its core mechanic is tapping to the beat while keeping track of "Hit Circles" and "Sliders". It is more known to be centered mainly around Japanese and Korean songs, but there are plenty of others.
> Where can i get Osu?
You can download Osu! for free at http://osu.ppy.sh/
> I see people play Osu with tablets, do i need one?
No. You do not need a tablet to play osu, though it may help.
>What is this timer why can't I download a map?
Pending/graveyard maps often have cooldown timers before you can download them. Use bloodcat.com/osu and search for the name of the map to bypass this. Or you can pay peppy.
> Can i play with the people in the thread?
Yes! The server name and password are always posted in the thread's topic section, but its usually:
> You guys are playing too hard maps!
You can activate mods individually for yourself and choose easy+no fail. Or you can create a new room, that's fine too.
> What are the rules?
Once the room have finished playing a song that you have chosen, pass the host down to the next player. Do this by clicking on their name and choosing to pass host.
Host gets to choose what map, mods (if any), and what mode to play.
So if this is a sound based rhythm game then what is the point of maps?
from the wiki
Also called map for short. A game level in osu!, like each stage in the DS games. At their most basic form, beatmaps have a song and Hit Circles, Sliders, and/or Spinners placed according to the rhythm of the music, but they can also have a background image or video, or even a Storyboard. Creators of beatmaps are called beatmappers or mappers for short. Beatmaps are uploaded for everyone to see and play with using the BSS, and are then modded. If/Once a beatmap is deemed good enough, it is ranked or, in rare cases, approved. "
Man, osu crashed and some sneaky nigger-anon stole my spot. Well played, well played.
So I have to have the map stored locally in order to play with everyone else?
