Synthesia should update its song listing while open

Its like the title says. On PC/Mac, when a new song is downloaded and in .mid or .midi format, Synthesia should automatically detect the new file and add it to the list. It didn't do this in the Mac OS X Sierra version. This small addition would remove the hassle of closing and re-opening the game t...

I think moderators move them to other sectors. Like for example, the old ones get moved to some sort of area where you can see them in your profile.

Its to add more control and personalisation. It would be really cool to see that implemented, and the particle effects could use this feature.

Re: Glowing key on press / particles.

What I meant was a more intense glow that could be adjusted in Settings menu for contrast/brightness, and to customise particles and their movement. For example, you could have the keys emit snowflake particles and customise the size/randomness and direction and colour, and even map the particles to...

I dunno, when I come back after a long time, the forum has been cleared of all posts. It might be to stop spam, thats what Im guessing.

3d key display?

Theres a program named MIDItrail, which uses a 3d keyboard design. I wonder if the Synthesia keyboard could someday be 3d, but toggleable between 2d (less cpu power) and 3d (more cpu power)?

audio visualiser

Could a visualiser be implemented so you can see the audio waves and volume? It would be usable only in the listen only mode/free play mode, cause it would interfere with piano playing on other modes. Different styles of visualiser could be used as well, like rain, snow, patterns, a flower, or lots ...

Glowing key on press / particles.

I just had this thought of a glowing key effect when you press it. It will glow in the respective colour and produce sparkles which can be changed in Settings or turned off and on at will. It would look good for kids. It would be cool to change the image of the particles by selecting it from a direc...

Re: Motor neuron issues and Synthesia

It means it would not respond as fast. By default, this would be set at 100%. At 0, it would take quite a long while to respond. This delays the initial message time from the input device, like a keyboard on a Mac or PC. That is what a sensitivity option is. Also, touchscreen sensitivity for mobile ...

Re: Next-Note-Helper-Arrow

Didn't think it through. Maybe perhaps when you pause the song, the game screen darkens, and keys you are supposed to hit next light up, like in the tutorial. Its a hint, and displays only when the song is paused so you remember if you have been away for a long time, or pressed the wrong key in melo...

Key sensitivity

It adjusts how responsive the touchscreen or controller is to being pressed. 100 is sensitive, 0 is not sensitive.

Motor neuron issues and Synthesia

When I play Synthesia, I usually end up with more mistakes than usual, even on the simplest songs. This is because my hands have fine motor issues, and this makes playing piano a little difficult. Touchscreens? Even harder. Maybe there could be a sensitivity option? :idea: I don't have Parkinsons. S...

Next-Note-Helper-Arrow

When you pause the song in practice modes, it should have an arrow pointing to the next key to press as a reminder of what key to press in case you forget. ;)

Battery saver

I think Synthesia should have a battery saver feature which makes it so the game uses less cpu and less battery power. This should also be for those whose devices run on batteries, it has no effect on desktop computers

White on black sheet music (nighttime)

There could be a colour theme feature someday that inverts the sheet music colour from the white on the background to black and the black notes to white notes, so your eyes strain less in the dark/for nighttime usage and to look cool. ;)
