Default Lagging arrows.

For some reason I cant really play, when I chose a song to play the arrow lag really bad a parts of the song and then I think it miss-aligns where the arrows should be at when pressed. If that made any sense. Like I have to press the arrow key a half a second earlier than I should have to.. like when the arrows are in the middle of the screen instead of the top.

My computer shouldn't be the issue.

Are you using a standalone version of flash to play? if not check out the wiki on how/where to get it:


That might help a bit. Also near the bottom of THIS post there is some suggestions on reducing the lag. Might help as well.

I've had these issues when I use r3 in browser alot.
I haven't really looked into it much cause I switched to standalone long ago. But even then, when I first started using the r3 engine it would seem to be misplacing the arrows frequently. I believe it has to do with what version of flash I was using as well, since running r3 in fp9/10 seems to be on point, but anything higher than would require me to change the global offset to compensate for the displacement of arrows.

Also, make sure your judge offset and global offset are tweaked to your liking. Each computer I play on requires different judge and global offsets.

This may sound dumb, but what helped me was right-clicking the flash window and making sure the memory being stored onto my computer was at max.

I went through a few months where the game was unplayable even with the standalone.
It wasn't my computer either, but I think the way it was processing the data. Internet connection was solid.

Another thing to try is making your internet browser higher priority on your task list.
