No osu thread? Well here is one.
I'm reinstalling all my stuff and can't find a specific skin I kinda liked. It shouldn't be too obscure as I only downloaded stuff linked here on /a/ and some of those from the official forum.
What I remember was a girl jumping/hanging upside down and a weird drilling noise as the "stage complete" (or whatever it's called). And for combos a loli throwing books.
And I had a nice minimalistic one from one of you guys, red dot and very unobstrusive sliders... I think it was a Niko skin, but the current one doesn't have a red dot cursor...
>osu! thread without creating a room
Why would you do this?
I'm going to play later tonight, right now I need to redownload beatmaps.
And I'm searching for that skin I mentioned.
I'll play if you make a room.
So, since this is an osu thread, how do you guys hold your mouse?
You made me do a triple take to make sure I was on /a/.
Knock it off.
I've heard about this game before /a/, should I download it? It's free right?
Is there anything I should do to it like mods or something?
Mouse always with claw grip, but I started using a tablet last year.
Playing osu! on a tablet is great - it'd be even nicer if you could play online like desktop osu! as well
does it worth it to buy a tablet for osu ?
It's free but you can donate for supporter status which lets you download songs in-game instead of having to go to the website.
>Is there anything I should do to it like mods or something?
I really recommend you try out a few skins and mix together one you like, especially doing things like making the 300s invisible so they don't distract you while playing.
Yes but don't expect to just get instantly better for having one, it takes practice
Yes it's free.
> Is there anything I should do to it like mods or something?
Well you need to download beatmaps. You should download packs when possible (sets of usually about a dozen songs), single downloads are tedious. And I would strongly suggest trying some of the alternative skins, the default will give you eye cancer.
I mean a graphics tablet; it's so relaxing. I tried osu on a laptop with touchscrren and it was pretty crappy. But it was the regular desktop version.
Some of the top players use a mouse, so a tablet isn't mandatory to git gud. But it helps a lot from my point of view. Get the cheapest Bamboo (around 40 bucks) to try it out. Dunno if I'd buy one just for playing one single game, unless you think it's really fun and want to play competitively.
Is there a tutorial on how to modify it somewhere? Or is it pretty straight forward?
So what about the skin with the upside down girl as section pass?
It's either download and double-click or extract and copy to the skins subfolder. Super simple.
A skin is really just a folder with image files in it. Pretty simple.
with the shittiest grip ever that my thumb cramps if i play too long
i play most insanes like this but i hate it
Yep it's just a case of replacing images with different images
You open the skin directory and put in the skin elements you want. You should probably just use a premade skin if you don't know how to do that. There are many good ones.
> upside down girl
similar pose, other girl
Alright thanks. That's all I needed to know.
I just logged in to find myself jumping from 100k rank to 33k rank
I went from #297 to #689 ;_;
what rank are you ?
i started 2 months ago and i am 80 k
the hell, I dropped from 70k to 100k.
Dropped from 3k to 4k. Can't say I'm mad since I haven't really played in 4 months and I'm not that good to begin with.
How is it even possible to gain ranks offline? I though you can only lose.
The whole ranking system was changed, it's more skill-based now rather than based on how other people playing the map have done compared to you
If you finish with Bancho on then your score is recorded and compared to how well others did on the song. It doesn't matter if you were playing on multiplayer or solo
or something like that
The PP system was revamped. People moved all over the place.
oh shit you were asking a different question
Holy fuck. I am terrible at this game.
Oh, alright. I didn't play since December.
Hey if you plan on playing a long time, don't compare yourself to other people ever, it'll just make you feel like shit
made a room
lewa is that you
Does it get better? Or do I just have to keep playing?
You keep playing and only get a little better each time. Then you play one day and you're way better. This is what has happened in my experience.
just keep playing you will get better and better and if you notice that you may get addicted to osu
and then you want to keep playing one day, but your hand is hurting too much and you keep messing up
>using a mouse
Are you seriously this much pleb?
Shipping takes time
Which is why I didn't get one from peppy.
Bad information, long wait times and having a pen with batteries..
Rather spend 15$ extra and get a wacom.
But what if I like using a mouse and being utter shit at the game?
wait, they started selling these osu! tablets already?
Forgive me for lacking in tech savvyness, but I've had a Wacom Intuos5 for a while now that I've been meaning to play Osu with, but I can't seem to change the sensitivity on it. Changing the mouse sensitivity doesn't work. Anyone know what to do?
what do you mean with sensitivity? you can change the active area
Yes, like a month or so ago as far as I know, but they're all booked instantly.
Download the proper drivers and change the settings to pen mode. You can find the drivers with a simple google search.
You can't change the sensitivity, you can only change your active area so that it appears quicker.
Whatever is akin to mouse sensitivity with tablets, I guess. Does making the active area smaller help with that?
Also, is there any way to disable the clicking on the tablet pen so I can just use it like I use my mouse to play (move mouse, mash Z and X)?
press F10 in-game, that will turn off mouse buttons, which will affect pen on tablet clicking.
you change your active area which will mean you can jump faster but you'll be less accurate with a smaller area of course. Try it out and see what's best for you. You can use the wacom software to do this
You can also disable mouse buttons via options menu or the shortcut F10, alternative you can also disable permanently disable them with the wacom software.
bump for the room
Anyone want to do some m/a/nia?
Ill start room if others want to play.
I'll play with you for a bit zealtron
I suck though..
I'm not zealtron. I wish I was as good as him. room is up though.
Whats the password again for the ins/a/ne room again?
I think all the passwords are rage.
>not playing mouse only
It's almost like you didn't start playing mouse only because you didn't read anything about the game and now it's too late to turn back.
I just got my osu! tablet.
Setting up the drivers is fucked up since the disk I got for some reason would not work.
Disappointed I missed the mania room. Didn't realize there were other people who played mania. Seemed like it was always just me and zeal.
Then again, I haven't played in an m/a/nia room in close to two months.
Start it up again and I will join.
holy fuck, why are all these tablet pens so fat? My surface one is nice and small, but I can't use it on my desktop. It sucks.
m/a/nia is up if anyone else is interested
That's the regular size of a tablet pen anon. My Wacom is about the same thickness, just flat and less weight since no battery.
Well that's what I'm saying. I have a Wacom tablet and the pen is fucking huge for my manlet hands. I get cramped hands when trying to play. I use my wrist only, so I have to strain my wrist more because of the size of the pen. Shit sucks.
Aren't those tablet pens really heavy? I have a CTL-480 myself, and I have heard that those have a heavier pen than most tablets.
I have a CTH-470S and it's the best of the pens I've tried. I can get a nice grip on it and it's a good weight for me.
can't play for a while , i left my keyboard at my other place and i sure does dont want to destroy my onboard keyboard.
Pen is pretty heavy, but only because of the battery.
Does that work with any bamboo tablet if I get just the pen?
Join us later if you can!
Is it possible to be good at osu maps with a no-mouse laptop?
I've been playing non stop for like a week and I'm not getting better ;_;
when will I be pro like /a/
While there's a thread here - anyone ever try switching to alternating from singletapping? I have some history with bad joints and with how my finger's been doing, it's become pretty clear I'm should probably start alternating if I want to continue playing this game.
It takes a while. It's a hard game. If you have a graphics tablet, try that out too.
Switch to alternating. You cannot do high bpm streams and singletap.
>not using a mouse
maximum pleb detected
Another anon is hosting a room >>101663960
>Just tried to play after quitting for a while
How do I de-shit myself?
>room name does not have /a/ in it
>room password is not rage
anyone up for a h/a/rd room for us scrubs
Reminder password is ALWAYS "rage" and the roomnames ALWAYS have "/a/" in them somewhere
If you make a room, post the match history, to show that it is still active.
Only way you can let anons know before opening the game and searching before hand.
Ah, sorry. I didn't know this.
Why do so many beatmaps have kinda crappy music?
I already expected there to be a lot of J- and K-pop, but much of the rest is cheap happy nightcore, vocaloid (there are some awesome vocaloid songs there, though) and mainstream metal. It's like animu fans don't have any taste in music.
Because everyone like you won't make beatmaps. Only one way to change that /a/non.
So it seems. Actually I tried looking into that, but I don't understand the editor at all.
Yeah, its kinda weird. But I guess it just like any type of editing software. The more you play around with it the more sense it will make. I'm just not motivated enough or else I would go crazy adding new age piano.
Nightcore is really fun to play on double time. I love nightcore maps just for that, and nightcore mod on nightcore maps is neat.
I'll admit that many nightcore songs are pretty catchy. But I feel a bit cheap playing them because the lyrics are often so stupid.
WHAT HURTS THE MOOOOOOOST
IS BEING SOOOOOO CLOSEEEEEEE
WHERE IS THE LOOOVE IN EVERY FADING RAINBOW
COME AND TAKE ME BY THE HAND
COS I WANNA BE YOUR FRIEND
the best nightcore.
Well I figured out the secret to getting PP fast.
Find the fast as fuck maps and FC them. Sounds easier said than done, but at least you won't waste time trying to FC longer, slower maps.
Is there an insane room up? Should I get out of bed and play videogames? What do I do about my roommate pissing on the floor?
20k, slowly drop
PP gets updated
just sub 20k, slowly drops again
PP got updated again
Now I'm just about 20k and slowly rising.
