Sorry for the beginner question, but something is puzzling me about the local DistorteD machine in my city. For some reason, the timing feels different than when I play Empress at home; I have to press the buttons slightly later at the arcade, waiting for the notes to fall slightly closer to the red line. Since I haven't been into the series for too long and I don't have DistorteD at home, I'm not sure if this is a difference in the games, a difference in controller (Japanese KOC vs arcade), or a difference in TV (LCD vs CRT). Does anyone know what's causing this, or am I just imagining the difference?

the reason is that the timing IS different itself and the different monitors add to it (most of the times LCDs have lag, CRTs dont)

just play what you have and don't mind the differences, unless you play both a lot

also arcade hardware makes a difference as most likely the hardware you're playing on isn't the official bemani pc as those are very hard to obtain due to konami's strict poliicy on what they allow arcade owners to do with their hardware (you get blacklisted if you are caught selling recent hardware/upgrades from them). the way iidx ac is programmed is very specific to its bemani pc hardware so any slight change can introduce even more problems.

playing iidx ac outside of asia is pretty shitty imo

in what means is shitty?
according to the records posted in the main italian community, there aren't many differences in score between ac and cs with people who is able to play both
and when a cs user of ours manages to reach a cabinet usually the scores are the same as they did at home (except they don't pass ristaccia A anymore)

theres a few exceptions but the main consensus is most iidx machines in the us are complete garbage

mainly because of the reasons listed above

BUMP plus didn't DistorteD and below have tighter timing? I thought that Gold is when timing was made CS equivalent or at least close to it.

10th through DistorteD AC all have tighter timing windows, and some songs on 9th do as well. Not to mention LCDs and Plasmas will increase the probability of your scores suffering.
