More like string tied to toe. Who wears shooooes when they play in the house?

It seems to me like NO ONE uses towel on this game, according to modifier icons. Kinda made me question life, but 2 seconds later I never considered anything and continued with my towelling rage.

180 is about max for me on 11 for HS4, though actually there it's probably a little detrimental, so there's no reason to have that if you...don't want detrimentalities.

I found out late about towelling and even later about the icon XD (though I retconned all my towel scores). For the most part I don't think towelling is terribly necessary for most songs in the game, especially starting 9. The only ones I really used them for were 7's Sana Mollete and 8's Rings on the Water, and a few songs here and there before I unlocked higher speed mods in the newer games. Someone mentioned de-towelling halfway through Miracle, but I don't have those ninja-like reflexes and my TV's sorta far away ^^

Everything on 8 needs HS4 and some serious towel, too. Towel is also good for 9 (anything 165-220 with HS4) and 10 (anything 140-175ish with HS4) but less so on 11 since the speed mods are really good.

And after looking at my post on the first page, I realized this topic is pretttty old laugh.gif .

towel isn't nessecary for me at all.
And, if people didn't use the speed mods in the first place, they'd be able to read slow/bunched up popkuns, you know?smile.gif

Easier said than done. I haven't played around with it too much, but there are songs that I've 100K'd that I would fail without speed mods (Mixture Hyper would be the best example).

You can learn to play without them, but it isn't easy at all.

The towel icon was added late and seemingly like nobody bothers to set it other than me. I don't know why, because I'm pretty sure that many people do use towel.

I do about the same for speeds on 11. I score crap on UK Hit Chart (185 BPM) on 3x, but on 4x it makes the rapid chords on the hyper a bit hard to read. I usually go 4x anyway however.

I started seriously using towel the other day because I was getting angry at Glam Rock EX. And now I have 90k+ on it.

I've been using towel for everything under 150 bpm on pop'n 8 and 7. Sometimes 9. Pop'n 9 has 6x which is use for 160 bpm and lower.

Towel is awesome and I used to be one of those players who thought towel was "bad".

At the arcade? I don't ever use towel at the arcade, it feels like too much of a hassle to bring one with me and hang it over the machine. I have seen some videos of Japanese people playing IIDX/PnM with towel tho.

You will never, ever see anyone at a Japanese arcade using a towel because there is no place to hang it.

The reason why you can sorta use one on AI's machine is that there are clips attached right above the monitor to hang one from. It is possible there's another machine like it, and one could attach clips to any machine, but I have never heard of this being done anywhere else.

I'm sure they use them at home, though.

I'm also pretty sure there was a towel involved in the Max300 IIDX video on Bemanistyle, though I don't remember who it was since I deleted it a while back to free up disk space. tongue.gif

Take both hands off the controller. Hold my arms out straight infront of me (zombie style). Extend middle fingers.
For best experience, keep middle fingers parallel and turned upright.

You can towel AC IIDX no problem; it's the Pop'n that is hard to do.

And that's kinda a low score on it considering he's like #1 in the world o_O... I am not too much lower...

It's probably an old video considering it's from 10AC (which also didn't have 5x). And I think he's much better at easier songs, sort of like me x 10,000.

I have a bunch of other videos from him where he plays much easier songs and gets pretty crazy scores on them, like 99K Cosmic Hyper. In an expert course. (10 greats)

fuck goli and all that anime bullshit. the mere inclusion of both g.m.d. AND s.d.z. makes every previous iidx release seem like a disappointment. I'm buying ten copies of this when it comes out and will rub them all over my balls. ALL of them.

Silvia Drive is also nails-on-chalkboard horrible, too; again, the chart is decent but Noria's attempt to out-yodel backyard dogs is a mind numbing atrocity.
