@Jayenkai, I've updated the file now so just re-download the game edit of the song. Everything should be alright now.

I'll be uploading the standalone version into the archive next.

Cool, thanks :D

The JoJo&Co track has been tweaked, and also I fixed the game!  It kinda crashed when it tried to play that track, so..  quick tweak and it no longer crashes...
So, thanks for that, too!

Woot!

OK, extra thanks, and a "Final" notice!
(It's a double post, but it's the next day, so that's ok right!?)

Posted the final version up today, over at AGameAWeek.com (albeit the same end link, so.. either-or!) and have included the latest submissions.
Thanks to everyone who joined in, and if anyone wants to add any more, stick 'em here, and I'll someday get round to adding 'em to the game ;)

I tried the new version and it seems to ignore every 4th keypress or something. this also happend randomly in the preview version, but not as often. it's totally unplayable this way..

Inspired by the great idea of holding the keyboard like a guitar introduced by Frets on Fire, I came up with a guideline for people who like to pursue that extra bit of authenticity in video games. The best part is you don't need additional hardware because you most likely already own what is needed.

Assuming Cowbell Hero is running and you see a song you like on the screen, here's what you do:
1. Place your mouse (or other feasible pointing device) on the palm of your hand.
2. Grasp it firmly leaving the primary button exposed.
3. Extend the index finger of your other hand.
4. Tap the primary button of your mouse with the side of your extended finger to start the game.
5. Tap the primary button of your mouse repeatedly, applying force as you see fit, to rock on.


That's it. Copyright 2008 raina. Patent pen... CBA.

wootsocks!
Fantastic tutorial.

..
Additionally, if anyone would like to somehow manufacture a realistic Cowbell instrument, the game will accept input from Joybutton 1 ;)


Jojo, not sure what, exactly, that bug is that you're describing.  Are you sure it's not an actual keyboard issue?  Try with the mouse, see if it's better.  And/or, is anyone else having that same issue?

after some more playing, i found out that your game was rather (very) strict when the key was pressed a bit too early and not that strict if it was pressed to late... that's the issue, it seems.
