Lightbulb Keys/Notes per second tracker

Hey everyone,

As I am getting better at FFR, I was interested in seeing how many keys I'm pressing per second in some of the faster songs, so I made a small little app that would track that for me.

When I was using it, I actually found that it helped me improve myself further because I can track keys per second (KPS) limit of my fingers/eyes, and I can now easily do some math to help make songs the perfect speed to improve myself. For example, I found that I have no difficulty reading and playing 14-15 KPS streams, but when it goes up to 17-18, my fingers can't keep up. Therefore, I can improve myself using almost any song by looking at my peak KPS when playing it, and then setting the song rate to a higher value such that the peak KPS * song rate will be around 16-17, just one or 2 KPS faster than my limit.

I have looked online for a similar keys or notes per second tracker, and could not find anything, so I thought I would share mines to the community.

Here is an example of what it looks like:


You can download it here:
https://github.com/Wj2ma/KeyTracker/...KeyTracker.zip

Please read the README on my GitHub on how to set it up:
https://github.com/Wj2ma/KeyTracker

Currently, I only have support for Windows since that's the machine I'm using, so I'm sorry to anyone who doesn't have a Windows machine.

Please let me know if you have any questions, or suggestions!

A cool tool you've made, but it seems to not be working for me properly
I've written "NUM2" and "NUM3" for my up and right arrows, but NUM2 only works if num-lock is activated and NUM3 doesn't register whatsoever.
Still a pretty neat program, so i'm gonna mess around with it and see if i can get it to work.

This looks like it would be very nice for anyone in streaming 4k keyboard and wishing to have more interesting interface elements for the viewer to watch

Less useful as a practice tool/analysis tool imo, but hey, it's looking good either way

Haha, sorry about that. Adding support for other machines is a pain for me. Maybe if there is enough interest, I'll try and make a port.

Here's a demo video:

Do you mind sharing your config file? I just tried NUM2 and NUM3 and both work when num-lock is activated. When num-lock isnt activated, 2 would register as "down", and 3 I don't have support yet since it's the page down key.

Other than alphanumeric keys, I had to manually add each key in, so I didn't bother with many keys. I'll probably add them in if anyone actually uses those keys.

Lol, well to be honest, I'm just a stats freak. But, I tried to make an appeal to people who aren't a stats freak, or don't want to stream.

Found the issue, and as always it's user error :P
If you do add support for more keys in the future, i'll probably be downloading
