It seems that way because it is that way. There is a delay, which was fixed in GH2, but I can't help you there. It's not just you that noticed the delay.

I have no idea how to get it. It seems like there is a delay in GH1 after getting SP and it won't let you activate right away.


I mash the select as hard and as fast as i fucking can and I still don't get it, so I usually just turn the 2-2 into a 3 and skip over the 4th phrase.

Best way to do it is to basically wait a split-second (counter-intuitive) and hit it right on the first RB chord. You'll get the next SP phrase if you hit the GY as late as you possibly can - just wait for the SP to run out and for the stars to appear. It's the only way I've had success compensating for that delay.

Okay so, this is my last song to six star in GH1, and I'm having quite a bit of trouble with it. My high is 224,742, around 5k off the 6*. But recently I've been having difficulty getting anything above 210,000. (And I play this song pretty regularly since it's so fucking awesome)

In the chart linked below I've highlighted my current SP Path (In Blue) and where I usually miss (In Red).

Here!

The crazy scale in measure 20 I can hit rarely, if I do I can't regain the 8th note strumming and mess up the chords after it, hence why I activate the first SP right away. (Edit: In the past 4 or so runs I've had this morning I've comboed it everytime, so I may have figured this bit out)

The riff seen in Measures 60 / 61 and 117 onwards I can sometimes hit, mostly just the one in 60, at the end I can barely combo any of it. I finger it like this:

Code:
RB RB G RB YB YB G YB BO BO G BO GY
24 24 1 24 34 34 1 23 34 34 1 34 12


I've tried usuing {}'s SP Path but that first activation is too hard, I've only managed it once. Is there a better / easier path to get the 6*? Which things should I be working on hitting? I figure the all the points are in the cursed outro, does anyone have tips for that?

This is really my only goal before retiring from GH for good (and I'm serious this time! =P)

Activate star power on the last activation 4 measures later for quite a few more points(activate on measure 113). Also(and this is just an idea), try getting 3 phrases then activating instantly for the first activation(your second activation probably doesn't get you a lot since the triplets break combo, but I could be wrong). That does mean hitting that GY hold for star power, but you'll still have a full bar for the next activation. I would find out what score you have at that GY hold with both ways, then see which works best. Good luck 6-starring it.

does hitting the 5th phrase make the optimal score higher?
while still using the 2-2 at the beginning

Edit: That post was retarded. I miscounted the number of measures the 3rd activation lasted as 7 instead of the full 8 somehow, so hitting that phrase makes no difference. Also, I completely miscalculated the time between notes for the 2nd activation before. With .237 seconds to spare and an additional 1/6 to squeeze from each note, you have .404 seconds to work around a delay that lasts somewhere around 1/3 of a second, still not sure on its exact duration.

I'm almost 100% positive that you can't get an activation off fast enough there in GH1 due to the delay.

Umm...a few posts above yours...

I (and others) have done this multiple times - if a path using that activation is indeed better than debr's path, feel free to post it.

umm I'm not very good at paths and counting ticks, so i can't make another path.....but that 5th sp is getting realy easy for me to hit now, there's just no way to whammy it into a whole SP, because you have to hit it late(i have a vid of me hitting it, but i'll have to upload it)

EDIT: 5th Phrase hit on GR2R
