and oh yeah!

i finally found a song where towel (well... sudden+) actually helped me instead of hinder me in iidx. my grade on 5.1.1. another 14 went up from a C to an A.

all other attempts to use towel has generally proven to worsen me, but maybe i should start using it for slow charts with high density.

tag cloud:

I use towel on almost every song >_> I AAAd Era nostalmix 7k yesterday. that was cool. But I definitely have to use towel for anything under 155 on styles that only go up to hs4, and other speeds in between the ideals for the high speeds (like on hs3, my ideal is 180 so I use towel on 165 or 170). It always helps me. I've played with it for a while and am used to it now though.

i've tried using it on some stuff, but in general it hasn't been succesful. part of it may be because i'm not used to it (it's amazingly disorienting), but some of it comes from how i play - i don't really read individual notes as much as i read patterns, and i need to be able to have the time to recognize those patterns before they reach the point where i actually execute them. Typically this means that i'll kick up the HS before i'll add towel because the more space between the notes but the more "track" i can see, the more easily i can recognize the patterns and the better i can execute.

but it's possible that i could get more used to it in time, if it actually helps with certain things. i'll probably never use it for early styles because i'm lazy about putting an actual towel on the screen. :)

I know; I love the later styles with the sudden+. I just leave my towel on top of my tv since I play so much iidx though.

but don't you have to change it for every song?

i suppose it depends on how close you are to the screen or something. for me since i play so far away, i'd have to get up, walk to the telly, sit back down.

remote control towel for earlier styles... that's what i need.

assuming that towel is even worthwhile to me. :)

ya basically I get up and change it for every song...

I'm getting up after most songs anyway to put my score in vjarmy, so it's not a big deal.

ah. i take pics of scores on my digital camera or write them down on paper so i can just enter them all at once.

start playing 14key, you. :)
