osu general

What is osu! ?
osu! is a free rythm game based off the DS game 'Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan' or it's sequel 'Elite Beat Agents'

How do I play osu! ?
While most PC users won't have a touchscreen at their disposal, this game is made to be playable with a normal mouse, as well as any number of input devices you can possibly think of. There are some songs which push the limits of the normal mouse (and you), but all the (ranked and approved) beatmaps have been tested and (most can be) passable using only a mouse.
Hit Circles

Here you can see the circles you have to tap.
The smaller coloured circle on the outside shrinks and you have to hit the note at the exact point the outside circle overlaps with the white border.
To understand the hidden charm of hit-circles, you should not only rely on your perception (your eyes) but also the understanding of the beatmaps beats and rhythm by your ears (auditory).

Sliders

Here we have a slider.
First, you have to hit it at the right moment, but it doesn't end there.
A ball will start to move across the path you see.
You have to hold the mouse/keyboard-button (or your finger/pen on the tablet) and keep your pointer inside the thick orange circle surrounding the ball as it moves.
You cannot control the movement, and you must follow its movement.
The orange circle will appear if you are holding it and disappears when you leave it.
Sometimes, as in the screenshot above, you have to move back at the end of the path.
You can tell by the reverse symbol at the end of the path.

Spinners

This is a spinner.
You have to click then hold the hit-button, and the mouse is used to spin (clockwise or counter-clockwise) in circles like mad before the time (which is, that blue circle line) runs out.
The bars on the outside indicate how close you are to passing.
The small bar below the spinner shows spins per minute, means the number of spins you are making if you continue that speed of spinning for one minute.
If you didn't hold any hit-button prior to spinning, you will not fill up the gauge at all.

Well, where can I get osu! ?
Right here.

Where can I get maps for it?
You can download individual beatmaps or beatmap packs (reccomended) at the Beatmap list.

but waa, i don't like anime music
Then get the english beatmap packs.

Could I get some beginner tips?

if you have a graphics tablet, I reccomend using that instead of a mouse.
Refrain from using the mouse to click as this jitters the cursor during gameplay, instead use z/x to hit

Re: osu general

I hadn't played it very much at all from like feb-june, and only started playing it again last month and since june I've only had ~1000 plays which isn't very much considering from aug-jan I had like 5000

although I also hardly ever finish a song anymore, play a bunch of hard as shit songs, and the people I play multiplayer with take 5 years to download songs so there's that too

Re: osu general

osu is that game you play a lot for a month or 2 and then you stop playing for 6 months, then you repeat the cycle

Re: osu general

although no joke I think I got carpal tunnel cause now whenever I'm playing songs with lots of fast clicking because my hand hurts too much to keep clicking

dear peppy please put z+x into the tutorial so people don't learn clicking then never switch because the game gets too boring
