Re: [TGM][TAP] One-handed

I'll give it a shot when I have my VSHG. Right now I think one-handed keyboard playing would be a lot harder.

Re: [TGM][TAP] One-handed

Yesterday evening, I played better with one hand than 2..

I am very closed to the 0-100 @ 45sec with one hand know..And 1:35 at 200..

But it is still impossible to lock at 300..

Re: [TGM][TAP] One-handed

been a while since i tried this style of play but after about 30 minutes it felt good. i used to play doubles in Tetris Unlimited and Tengen Tetris by myself. it's a lot of fun, and with good planning and timing you have a nice spot for each piece.

btw Tetris Unlimited lets you play triples and quadruples if you can handle it. triples actually works if you use single rotation, left, right, down for each piece. of course, you need a keyboard. i believe i used qwer, tycm, uiop. i never made it very far but it was still fun.

Re: [TGM][TAP] One-handed

Yes and no. Not to downplay jujube's achievement, but playing Doubles with joysticks is significantly more challenging. If I could play on a keyboard with easy access to all inputs at all times, I doubt it would take long for me to get the 300-300.

How do people want to handle this? Especially with something like Death mode, if I was using a keyboard one-handed it would be a complete joke and barely different than standard play.

Re: [TGM][TAP] One-handed

as far as "one-handed" goes, i don't see playing solo doubles that way. you could mix the controls and rotate both pieces with one hand, and use your other hand for left-right or whatever. to me it's just about controlling both pieces at the same time.

and with joysticks, even single player, don't you have to make more extreme movements with your hand all the time? if using a keyboard is an advantage when playing doubles or one-handed, isn't it also an advantage when playing single player with both hands (a smaller advantage)?

i pretty much agree that using a keyboard is easier in this case (if not in all cases) so seperate away. but if you want a challenge with the keyboard i'm taking it ...and i just added firm drop to my controls

Re: [TGM][TAP] One-handed

I agree that solo Doubles is very much about controlling 2 pieces at once, but in my opinion there's more to it.

When you use a joystick with both hands, all the controls are still "at the tip of your fingers" like a keyboard. If you want to get anal both input devices have slight functional differences, but it's close enough to have a competition.

When you control 2 joysticks, or a single joystick with one hand, suddenly things moves become physically difficult to execute. You've got to stretch your hand in a contorted position, and even then no matter what you do there are holes of input coverage not unlike when you have 4 fingers to cover 5 buttons in Guitar Hero. There is an added deep learning curve for controlling things with carefully managed "blind spots". Eventually, your hands never get disoriented, and even though you can't have everything at your fingertips, you will be able to have everything you need at the time at your fingertips.

Maybe I'm a masochist, but both layers of challenge appeal to me.

Re: [TGM][TAP] One-handed

after all, the game was designed to be played on an arcade machine. i respect anyone who plays the game as closely as possible to that, if not actually playing it on an arcade machine. that being said, i'm gonna do the best i can on a keyboard. and i also have this which i plan to use more often at some point. i need to switch both sticks to 4-way though, which i've been slacking on.

14. jujubeUnregistered

Re: [TGM][TAP] One-handed

ok, got my sticks converted to 4-way and played for a while.

the time is not good but i'm starting to get used to the controls.

i'm not sure if i'll be as fast with sticks but i think 300/300 is a real possibility. it felt really awkward but i think the way you look at the game and the decisions you make are the same no matter what the control device. it's just a matter of executing accurately and quickly enough. and i'll be honest, i only made it this far because i was at the bottom when i hit 200.

Re: [TGM][TAP] One-handed

woot, someone else is playing
yeah, unfortunately i'm sure most people don't. it's just as much fun i think on a keyboard though. i bought this gigantic freakin x-arcade thing because i wanted a stick, but at the time thought i might build a cabinet to put it in. didn't happen. but i might as well use this thing anyway
