I have found discussions for scoring and how statistics are stored in the SCORES.XML file. There is one value: total-notes-user-pressed that is not displayed in the game (or I am not finding it). Would it be possible to display this in the "Points Earned" section? Even though the values in this field is not used as part of the score, it would be beneficial in helping understand how well the song is played.
My daughter was playing chopsticks and was hitting the keys as fast as possible so hit way more keys than she should have. The game showed zero errors so she did not accept when I told her she made mistakes. At the time, I was not aware of SCORES.XML.
I just tested this and my SCORES.XML shows:
<Stats version="2" notes-user-could-have-played="45" notes-user-actually-played="42" stray-notes="2" total-notes-user-pressed="146" longest-combo="18" speed-integral="2250" score="5327" user-held-time="8700000" possible-held-time="13500000" summed-held-time="13500000" in-practice-mode="0" date-time="2017-Mar-20 16:46:37" />
We see I hit 146 notes but only strayed twice. The game shows I make 2 errors.
To keep the screen clean, maybe you do not want to add additional columns but how about adding an additional screen that shows when the score is clicked on which would show all the statistics in the SCORES.XML?
I am new to using Synthesia. It is AWESOME! Thank you so much for making it and maintaining it. This game reminds me of the 1982 Intellivision game Melody Blaster which I was playing before finding Synthesia.
