bonus High Score Algorithm - extra points for playing all parts of a song perfectly - on a single shot!
If i play a complete song in one and played it perfectly, i should get more Points than playing it ten times which failure in different parts. Currently, in sum - all parts were played correct - one after another....
=> When i try to reach the maximum Score, i can trick:
Play the whole song to start the n-th parts with a level "5" (1000) per perfect note played.
Therefore, i suggest to give e.g. 1000 extra points for playing a whole song in one shot perfectly.
Honestly, I kinda like the "cheating" concept, it makes the experience more fun, and less "grindy". Who cares about exclusivity on the leaderboards, just let everyone have fun and reach max score easier (you still have to work a lot to get it)!
However, I agree with Philip: it's really difficult to tell "Gold" apart from "Max Score". Since people are all accustomed with "Gold", we shouldn't change its meaning. Rather just implement this "Max Score" tag that occasionally replaces "Gold" for some songs.
Hi, there actually is a score bonus implemented when playing full song with gold stars. If user plays songs part by part, every part start with multiplier 3. If you play full song each part "keeps" the multiplier 5, so user get better score by playing the full song
Yeah the gold star for a whole song should be reserved for playing all the way through. It makes it too easy to "cheat" the score, but it also makes it tough to go back and look at what songs you need more work on if everything looks like a perfect score.
I'd like it better if I could only achieve an overall goldstar by playing the whole song flawless. Right now you can get the goldstar by just "goldstaring" all the different parts one after another.
