We just got the arcade cabinet, and I notice that I get random bads a LOT. I've just been playing songs that are hard so I don't get frustrated that I can't 100k anything. The buttons misfire a lot after you hit them, and I am wondering if it's because they're dirty or something?

How old do you think it is? Could be that the microswitches are failing and need to be replaced.

Microswitches seem to go bad quickly on pnm machines from my experience, but maybe it's because there's always someone playing them in Japan. I'd clean them to make sure it's not that, and then get the microswitches, but assume you're going to have to get some because you probably are :/

I've had that happen to me as well. On this one machine whenever I hit the green buttons too hard the buttons on the side of those (white/red) go off by themselves. I'm not sure if it's just too sensitive or what? The machine isn't that old I don't think. It has a very nice screen.

It's not really much of a problem for me as I usually play at other arcades anyway, but it is annoying if I do happen to play there.

If y'all don't mind, could you watch this video and point out anything you think I might need to work on in my playstyle? I know i tense up a lot when I play, and i've been trying to not make my hands as rigid as I do, but I can't help it, I do that in IIDX also.

The song is too fast/has too few scales for me to see this, but make sure you're actually palming as many scales as possible. Don't get lazy and "roll" your wrists unless the scales are really fast, as you'll need to palm them if you want to go for good scores later. I'd also recommend playing on chou challenge exclusively, as it's pretty much the standard for scores now. The earlier you start, the quicker you'll learn to get more cools than greats. Otherwise, your technique looks fine to me, just gotta practice!

Right, I saw you wrote that in another help thread, and I watched the video of some guy doing IDM EX on TopRanker (geez, that's retarded, btw), and saw exactly what you meant. I'll work on that and put up some more vids soon.

Yes, Cho-Challenge is a must. I got so much better by being on that mode.
