Show only Sheet music at start up

Is there a way to only display the sheet music at startup without pressing F5 every time? For some lessons with my students I wanted them to practice reading only the sheet music and then press F5 to display the falling notes when they get lost.

Are you using an older version of Synthesia? The F5 preference should be saved between songs.

i was on the version before 4664 for my classroom. I do have certain settings locked across all computers by moving the settings.xml, folders.xml, bindings.xml, multidevice.xml to the system-wide settings location on each computer. I think its something I did with that. Which .xml file is it that locks that preference on startup?

You should be able to edit the system-wide version of settings.xml and add the following line anywhere in the main block with the rest of the other settings:

Code: Select all

	<setting key="Gameplay.ShowFallingNotes">0</setting>
