Ohhh, so that's why it did that. Sucks that it's a hardware-related problem though. :sad:

Actually I'm not a very big fan of Phase Shift. And yes I tried it out. The main reason why is because it lags more than fofix (seriously I actually thought fofix used more resources.) I tried lowering the antializing quality and using the 2d background but the fretboard still skips or chops up a little through the song. It isn't a major problem I guess but it's not as fun as fof. The hit window isn't a problem though since I can just put it on drunk mode. Any people who have had this problem but fixed it?

Both games run smooth for me but PS has calibrating issue for me, but that's an old version(0.76). I thought of updating it but like you said, I too, have to admit that it's not as fun as FoF.

well there isn't a huge amount for us to do with the performance side anymore, noone has reported evidence of performance related bugs in any recent versions, some people may need to toggle vsync if you haven't tried that or people running apps on a secondary monitor on a multidisplay system can cause lag, but other than that if you can't run it nicely then there is a good chance you simply don't meet minimum spec for the game

it does have a more advanced base that requires some gpu power, but we have been surprised that some people have had it running on far weaker systems than we ever planned for

on the fun side, personally i have fun from the added challenge, im a drum player and real drums beats basic drums any day, real guitar is more educational than fun to me but rewarding in its own way. Playing songs in practice mode beyond 100% speed is probably some of the most fun i've had in a rhythm game for years, and obviously multiplayer is lots of fun so personally i feel completely the opposite, but different strokes for different folks, have fun playing whatever you feel happy to play

if the online multiplayer has some kind of lobby and supports dedicated servers, then it'd be hell lots of fun, plus with the keyboard mode.

but i think he meant that it'd be nice if there WAS a dedicated server... like, you could just play with people and not have to join a group of somebody who can port forward...

I think he means an official permanent server that any user could expect to be able to use. That might be too much to ask for though, unless there are hosting services out there with cheap/free game server hosting.

there is nothing stopping anyone doing this if they have the resources to do so, but a single server won't be enough for everyone, as forgiving as the game is for lag there are limits to what it can deal with before things start to screw up, servers are best kept regional

Maybe we could go P2P if Python would allow it (which I think in that respect is possible, considering the program Nicotine is written in Python)?

<@away_xbox> Amak11 cut the Peenus wire. This has defused the timer on the TNT! Just try and get it off you without setting it off, ok?
