Yeah, I can play everything (except the Camilla songs) pretty easily on Expert, but only about 1/3 of the songs on Expert+, so my sweet spot is Expert with the fast modifier. I also kind of motivate myself by trying to climb the rankings, and you can’t get anywhere on those unless you’re using modifiers. In my experience fast is relatively painless, disappearing arrows isn’t too bad, and ghost boxes is murder.
Very occasionally, I use no fail if I’m just stuck on part of a song and want to practice the rest of it, but I’ve never used slow.
I struggle on some of the Hard tracks, to be honest! Balaeric Pumping, I think it is, way too fast and complex for my tiny brain to handle. Of course I thought the same about Breezer on Hard, which is the mandatory level 11 in the Campaign. I took some advice and practiced at 50% speed, slowly ramped it up to 100% and then beat it, so my brain (and body) can handle it with sufficient practice. I dread to think what Breezer is like on Expert.
Watching people in YouTube videos play some of the Expert and Expert+ levels, I can’t even comprehend how that is possible. Blocks fly way too fast to even read the direction markers, in dense groupings, and I can only assume you have to learn The Force to do that. I’m sure my technique is “wrong”, as in I have a blast just flailing around wildly jiving along to the song. Yesterday I learned there about 8 different possible “grips” to use for the controllers! It’s a rabbit hole.
Ohhh no, ok stupid question time. Are you 100% sure the cable is plugged “all” the way in? Fresh batteries with enough voltage and all that? Sure the ports are USB 3.1 and working? Same for the video output port?
I thought my headset was broken and was sure my cord was ok used alk the way into the headset… after a week of trying everything I found out it had to go in extra far in a way I wasn’t used to.
By plugged in do you mean via the power adapter into the wall or via USB into the computer?
Did you charge it up yet and have the light by the power button turn green? I don’t recall if they ship charged up or not.
It’s plugged in directly to the wall. I’ve pushed in the cable as far as I can, and I know the adapter and cable work because I tested them on my phone, which began charging when I plugged them in. So far there’s no light at all on the device, so I’m waiting to see if it turns green. Hopefully.
