Show only Sheet music at start up

Trouble with Synthesia, your keyboard, or adapter? Think you found a bug?
When describing problems, always mention your OS and game version (shown at the bottom of the title screen).

  • If your keyboard has USB or MIDI ports, there is a tremendously high chance (>99%) it will work with Synthesia. See what you'll need on the keyboards page.
  • If you have a Logitech webcam and can't get your keyboard/adapter to work, see this post.

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>
