Follow the dialogue until you meet the Arataki Gang on Amakane Island's isolated shore to start playing beats.
What is Lag Calibration and How Does it Work?
Lag calibration allows you to adjust the acceptable tap delay within the note tap zone. There's a predetermined window where you can get a Perfect, Good, or Failed score, depending on how accurately you click on the notes. However, if you're playing on a laggy device, don't listen to the beat, or are new to rhythm games, it can be a challenge to get 100 percent accuracy.
Adjusting the lag calibration changes the acceptable tap delay so you can play more comfortably. But keep in mind that calibrating doesn't change the speed of the music. It only adjusts how early or delayed you can click on notes.
How to Adjust Lag Calibration in the Arataki Gang's Rhythm Game Event?
Head to the Settings menu from the upper right corner of the beatmap selection screen. Under Lag Calibration, click the arrow beside Calibrate to open the corresponding menu.
You can adjust the Calibration Value by clicking on the plus and minus signs on the right of the screen or adjusting the position of the tap zone with the slider.
- Calibration Value 0—you must tap notes at the exact moment each beat drops.
- Calibration Value 10 and above—you can tap notes a few seconds after the beat drops, depending on how high you calibrate (max 400, which is approximately a two-second delay).
- Calibration Value -10 and below—you can tap notes a few seconds earlier than the beat, depending on how low you calibrate (max -400, which is approximately two seconds earlier).
Sometimes, laggy devices can cause you to tap notes perfectly but still miss, as the device can't process the action fast enough to register in the game. In that case, adjusting lag calibration can also help ensure that your clicks register correctly despite the device delay.
