New Osu thread, search for /a/ in multiplayer and the password is "rage" like always.
> 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.
cool, i'll check it out
I made a h/a/rd room for anons who aren't ins/a/ne or didn't want to wait for the insane room to open up.
I just downloaded it.
Either not having a tablet is giving me a huge disadvantage, or I just suck at this game.
Most people use mouse.
fuck tryhard tablets
i wish i had a tablet ; ;
Tablet is just better than mouse in every way.
It's not even a contest.
room for 5
It won't let me login with my new account :/
reminder if you cant osu you arent animu
but thats against the rules
So you want me to download all of the Anime packs?
>mouse sensitivity at max
>twitching my wrist to move wherever I want, as if it's mind control
where is hard lobby?
Dead. If you want I'll remake and play a few games.
Well it turns out that i'm an idiot and was playing Mouse ONLY. M+KB has upgraded me to newfag.
A lot of people click only too.
I can handle hard and some of the easier insanes no problem but i can't seem to handle the harder maps at all
h-have i hit my limit?
No you keep playing and you'll slowly get better
The gap between easier insanes and harder insanes is about as big as from easy to hard.
Just keep trying.
Also, match history for the insane room:
what is your favorite beatmap?
h/a/rd lobby is still going. join fags
osu is impossible
time for miku
>there will never be a song pack made up of intelligently selected songs with little manga-esque stories similar to the original games
When I first heard about Osu!, I thought people were going to use it to fill the void left by iNiS's descent into shovelware, but it's really a different experience altogether. It's still fun, but the community just isn't as ambitious as I had hoped.
it's stepmania with mouse gestures
and i guess i'm content with that
I wish more people played stepmania.
are there any songs i should have downloaded?
download as we go
>BANJO FINGER POWERHOUSE
I don't even
>osu will never be as active as it was last summer
h/a/rd lobby still has 2 spots!
Trust me, playing more is the best way to do better...
is it a dead community?
no. there's always a few thousand people on at any given time
>failing on the last note
Obviously this. Best mappu.
Back then we had way more players active
How do I get better
I've played one map like 300 times and still haven't finished it
Are you playing a map beyond your capabilities? I have 200 plays on an insane map because I tried to play it before I could even read AR7 properly.
