Isn't it extremely satisfying to improve in the track and finally get that perfect chain!?!?
Very satisfying. I think I've actually mastered Wonderland now, so I'm going to be brave and move on to Standard next time I do my demo play. I hope I can do that for Hand in Hand and The Rustling Forest after some more practice. I'm too much of a scaredy cat to try Wave of Darkness on anything but Beginner, lol.

This is something I see people saying online. Why not just use X button for every single note? It just seems like making it harder on yourself to be alternating between these buttons.
I've honestly found L1 and R1 easier to use than X most of the time. I only usually use X when I need to do all three at once.

Oh yeah sure! Whatever is best for you, but pressing X for sora, R1 for goofy and L1 for donald just feels like making it harder on yourself, it's using 3 buttons when you could just be using one. That's what I was trying to say.

Oh definitely, trying to play as if each character was mapped to one button is bount to make the whole thing a lot harder than it needs to be.

Switching between X, L1, and R1 can be tricky at times, and can even slow your rhythm down if not paying attention. Like @AdrianXXII said L1 and R1 seem to respond better then X. I mainly use X when jumping to attacking enemies, just out of old habits from KH1. Thank goodness for one-button mode.

I tried performance mode and I floundered about because I couldn't work out when best to press the button aha. Kudos to this who can make that mode work, and enjoy themselves while doing it!

This is my problem, I don't understand why it doesn't have the circle thing on those notes also.

It does, it's the music note symbol.

It took me a while to realize that was a timing indicator, and even now that I know it's a lot less easy to read compared to the targeting reticles. In general the readability for Performer targets is a bit iffy, having three buttons and four analog directions in a single, small target that otherwise looks identical isn't ideal, I don't think.
Though my main problem with Performer mode is having L2/R2 inputs. In the harder charts it makes me feel like I need a finger on each button in order not to press the wrong one and that's kind of an awkward way to hold the controller though I am somewhat used to it because of Project Diva Future Tone

Oh wow, I went to check on it. It's soooo subtle! But yeah it's there, and at least it lets me know when I can click on it. Thanks!

Yeah I also don't like that I have to use the L2 and R2 since I got used to using those instead of L1/R1 on the normal mode.

Wait, you have to use R2 and L2 in performer mode? In addition to R1 and L1? I bet that's a headache to remember.

I just came in here to say, I scored my very first A rank on Wave of Darkness! At long last I got a A! L1 and R1 work wonders in one button mode and if focusing on just one button it minimizes the lag. I still got it towards the end, but it was much smoother this time around. I'm off to celebrate! A in Wave of Darkness, yo!

I just tried out Standard and even one level of Proud Mode for the first time. Oddly enough Gliding seems easier on Standard and Proud then it does on Beginner. I'm thinking it has something to do with enemy placements keeping the music in sync with the rhythm. I got A's in all but Wave of Darkness where I got a failing C. For a player of my newly acquired rhythm talent, I count a C is failing! I demand straight A's!

Finally got my A in Wave of Darkness Standard. A+'s on all Beginner levels with some full chains. All A's in Standard. My powers continue to increase. I'm obsessed with this game, and it's still just the demo. I'm coming for you next, Proud Mode!

I really hope they add a calibration mechanic. I can’t seem to get anything to line up right (PS4, Switch) except handheld Switch. Guitar hero has had calibration since the beginning, you’d think square would know to do that with a rhythm game.

There is an option to adjust timing. Check the settings.

I adjusted it so many times, but I can’t get the timing as good on the tv as with handheld
