Ask @hugodenizart1:

I’ve been wanting to improve on NoMod for Osu(rank 37k) but I’ve run into a problem where I over read jumps that go on for more than 6 notes. What reading methods do you use, or do you just aim to the circles when they appear?
not sure there are other methods than aiming circles as they appear :p
one advice I can give though is make sure osu! is in a comfortable field of view :)

I got osu! working on my Manjaro machine thanks to your guide, but I still have a critical problem: osu! is not detecting my 144hz monitor, only as 60hz. I have a second monitor that's on 60hz but I disable it for osu! on Linux due to raw input problems. Have you had this issue?

raw input is fine to leave disabled, i don't need to disable a monitor even with raw input on though. it is fine if osu! reports the monitor as 60Hz, it still outputs as much frames as you set the frame limiter to.
however, your compositor might be rendering at 60fps instead.
in that case you might wanna fix that or disable it altogether to reduce latency. i assume you're on KDE since you're using Manjaro, you can quickly do that with shift+alt+f12, and set up window rules to have it done automatically. it might freeze the shell with NVIDIA drivers though, in that case you can just kill and restart plasmashell

Have you ever felt losing your motivation and it causing you to play the game less? If yes, how did you overcome it?

never play if you're not motivated to do so, it will only hurt, especially when you're competitive (and this is one of the reasons I quit this game).
i personally used to take a few weeks breaks off playing the game to overcome this. often during my breaks i would still play with mouse instead of tablet (and still do actually).

Nice to know other people have the same viewpoint. What was the thing that got you started using Linux add your desktop OS? For me it was my late grandad's daily Windows rant (lol) and the release of 8 / 10. Long winded question sorry ;-;

Ethan Stubbs
Windows has always been a mess for managing servers/services so I started with Linux VMs. And with Windows 8/10 getting more and more frustrating, I eventually switched to Linux as my main OS too. Not to mention it's way easier to administrate Linux servers from Linux than from Windows, at least back then.

It's free, super easy to install whatever you want, and you can setup a dev & building environment in literally minutes (if not less). also you can dig in anything inside your system and have a look & patch the code as needed. i feel like in control of what's running on my system, possibilities seem endless, and i absolutely love it.

hi poon. I would like to ask you about the switches, because at the moment I have blue gateron switches, but it is not convenient for me to play with them just like in red switches. I have not tried brown switches yet. And so, how are they in Osu!?

Парасат Жалгабаев
Well... it depends. XD
Personally I need light switches so I went with reds, but some people need heavier ones for better finger control/accuracy.
For judging switches, *as far as I know* it's pretty straight forward. The actuation point makes it easier or harder to press, and the harder it is, the better your finger control should be, but your stamina will be worse. You have to find what works best for you I guess!
