    I'm so determined to buy the game. But since shops were closed and I couldn't wait, I gave it a try.

    I first started with arrow buttons, turns out I can't press Green+Red chords.
    So I switched to BXY buttons and just finished easy.

    How it went

    Review/Impressions:
    Y mapped to green and X mapped to red really messed me up, I'm not gonna try to 5 star "I know a little" because red and green is confusing as hell.

    When playing on console I can just whammy without thinking much, but on OT as soon as long note ends whammy turns into strums. This can kill the combo and multiplier. I just avoided whammy most of the time.

    Personally, I think the song list is suitable for wide range of people compared to GH2,3,AS. People who like softer rocks would definitely prefer this over console versions, possibly including Rock Band too.

    Mic is so ultra extra over sensitive. I set the mic sensitivity option to low, turned down my DS volume to roughly 30%, the speaker sound is loud enough for auto-starpower. I wasn't aiming for a high score or anything so I didn't really mind, but when I didn't get 5 stars I wish I would have used earphones instead.

    5 star cutoff is x3.0, opposed to console version's x2.8. Average multiplier of x2.9 gave me 4 stars, x3.0 gave me 5 stars.

    When notes are close together, I needed to alt-strum or one input would not register. After each stroke I lift my stylus, but DS fails to recognize that or something.

    For no clear reason, sometimes one stroke would register as 2 separate strums. It results in an overstrum and breaks the combo. It could be my touch screen so I'm not gonna talk more about this.


    Final verdict:
    If you like other Guitar Hero games, there's no reason not to like this one as well. I didn't have the frets and pick, but I've confirmed that the software part of the game is built solid.

    For people who've never played Guitar Hero before, try it with buttons unless you have a store that lets you try before buying. I must say, if my console Guitar Hero experience was 10, then On Tour played with buttons was about 2 or 3. That's how big a difference that fret controller add-on will make.
    "It's just okay..." "Not bad" will turn into "Wow" and "Excellent" with add-on.


    I'm not going to play it with buttons anymore, gonna pick up the game and share it with my girlfriend as soon as I have time.

    the author of the hack originally only tought about playing in normal position, and not in book position.

    I would think that:

    A = Blue

    B = Yellow

    X = Green

    Y = Red

    Thats using it in a normal book position and it works much better, although I will eventually get used to it.. [​IMG]

    I would say this is the best combination. If you use the R Button you can't use the others as much portable as in this combination here. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    the Y button really is a problem.
    you need to reach out quite far with your finger, and you have a high chance of accidentally pressing A too.

    anyway, managed to make an ips patch out of the 1st button-patch.
    it doesn't trim the rom unlike the other method.(i applied the arm9 directly into the nds instead of unpacking the rom first)

    cool, please include some RATM, maybe some Audioslave, some popular and well known pop songs if you can..

    I might keep the buttons the way they are unless a patch comes out with:

    A = Blue

    B = Yellow

    X = Green

    Y = Red

    so you wont be able to use abxy.. SO it will be

    green = left

    red = up

    yellow = down

    blue = right

    Thats a bit dodgy.. Dont you think.. I think my idea was better.. More convenient as well..

    would it be possible to make the L button activate the surrounding buttons too?
    so if you have green and yellow pressed, if you hold L also it selects red and blue too

    that way it will make all combinations possible
