New Notes Fixed

Got an email from Arjun!

Alex, thanks for the feedback,

In a nutshell, we screwed up and things got a bit to hard on the site. Things should be easier now and behave just like the circles, although they still look different.

Here is the status of things so far.

Earlier this week we decided to move to rectangle shaped notes because they are shorter and allow us to the following functionality which was requested by users:

1. Slower notes, especially for easy (If we slowed down the circles they would start to overlap)
2. See the upcoming notes sooner, also especially for easy
3. When notes come really close in songs like Cancer on hard it gets hard to see

The shorter nature of the rectangle notes allowed us to take care of these three requests.

Sadly, an unintended consequence of this change was that the note windows got smaller and therefore the game got harder.

Some users preferred the harder version, but the overwhelming response was negative. We tweaked a few things here and there, but the feedback was still negative. So we just spent some time adjusting the code so now the timing windows are identical to the circle notes even though the notes appear as squares.

Hopefully this will allow us to take advantage of the rectangle notes' size advantage while still allowing users to have fun with the game.

Please give the game another chance and tell us what you think.
