map notes
I finally did it.

I have lots of maps that are easy boost-fests, but this time I've finally made a dash rhythm training map.  I am aware that there are several maps of this nature already on Atlas. Sadly, none of them really deliver to a standard I like.  This made was made specifically to be informative of your speed.  The art has no parallax of any kind nor other distractions.  The spacing of the background is exact throughout the map, with only the very beginning and very end having deviations.  The same is true of dust: you gain it at a perfectly uniform rate for all of the map except the very beginning and very end.  Feel free to be a dirty cheater and annihilate the top time with a dash macro, because that will give everyone a solid example to study.  Enjoy.

Just to be clear, that is the correct BPM for dashing right?  I wasn't sure what it was, but if you linked that then hopefully you do.

I think it is as close to perfect as there is.

I feel like it's too fast, or I always hit one too fast and miss an input.  I went down to 284 BPM and it worked a little better, but I guess I'm still not consistent enough since when I hit one input too fast I get rekt.  We should probably make sure the numbers we picked actually translate to something proper in frames though.  288 BPM is 4.8 inputs a second, and I apparently can't figure out how many frames that is.

as a training map, 260-270 is probably a better goal. 280+ is around optimal boosting

edit: 288 bpm is 1 dash / 12.5 frames, meaning it would be (theoretically) too fast for dash rhythm, which alternates between 12 and 13 frame spacing. a 13.5 frame dash rhythm would be 266 bpm.
