1.0 - What Is Audition?

Audition is a damn fun dancing/music game in which you use directional arrows and then hit space with the beat of the music to execute dancing moves and gain points for it.

In game you earn the in game currency known as den which can then be used to purchase in game clothing (Hair, Tops, Bottoms, Shoes) for your character.

To download Audition (YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO) go to the link below

Best of all this game is and always will be free!

If you can't figure out how to register then PM me (GreyOokami) and I'll run through the procedure... -Grey


*********************************************

1.1 - Single Play

Audition Servers - Entry

Ahhh, the entry server, what a nostalgic place, a place where everyone who plays audition starts off at... There are 4 available modes, namely practice / normal individual / freestyle and choreography modes...

Practice Mode
- basic mode located ONLY in entry server
- allows beginners to have a feel of playing audition
- 4 keys up to level 1 - 5
- no finish

Normal Individual
- slightly harder mode compared to practice mode
- 4 keys up to level 1 - 7, and a finish at level 8
- the more perfects you achieve, the faster you proceed through the levels. (during the freestyle period)
- the ball can pass through the bar and not count as a miss, however, as long as it passes once, when you input the keys and pressed space, it will reset down to a lower level.

Choreography
- more challenging mode
- 4 keys up to level 1-7, and a finish at level 8
- not as flexible as freestyle / normal modes
- if the ball passes by the "blue" space, and you fail to hit it, you miss and the move proceeds to the next move


Audition Servers - Novice

Now now now, finally you've gotten better and reached level 6. When you reach level 6, your name will be listed as level 5 with a blinking circle beside your nickname. Do not be afraid when that happens, it simply means you're ready to proceed on to the next level Go back to the lobby, and click on the blue button labelled "license" on the top right hand corner. This "license" is actually a test, and after you pass this test, you get some den in reward, and you reach level 6. If you do not take the "license", you will not be able to gain further experience until you pass it.

Hmm, finally you passed your level 6 license test. Welcome to the novice servers, in here, you have access to more songs and more modes. Also, all those people who passed their level 6 license test, will NOT be allowed back into entry server. Also, from now onwards, every level there will be a license test.

Practice Mode
- there is no practice mode in this server

Normal Individual
- similar to entry server
- slightly harder difficulty
- 4keys up to level 1 - 9, and a finish at lvl "10"
- ability to switch between 4 keys / 8 keys
- ability to activate chance mode

Freestyle
- interesting new FREESTYLE mode, start off with any directions, its totally your choice
- slightly harder difficulty
- 4keys up to level 6 - 9, and a finish at lvl "10"
- ability to switch between 4 keys / 8 keys
- the more perfects you achieve, the faster you proceed through the levels.
- the ball can pass through the bar and not count as a miss, however, as long as it passes once, when you input the keys and pressed space, it will reset down to a lower level.

Choreography
- similar to entry server
- slightly harder difficulty
- 4keys up to level 1 - 9, and a finish at lvl "10"

Expert Choreography
- new and challenging mode
- involves 4keys and 8keys of random percentages, sometimes you have more 4keys than 8keys and vice versa

Audition Servers - Free

Hmm, if you are able to make it here, congratulations ! You're already on the way to being a pro ^_^
Over in the free server, many new and tough challenges await you, especially on the oh-my-god-so-dreadful 8key modes. But do not fear, practice makes perfect, even babies don't become adults overnight Also, upon passing the level 11 license, you will not be able to enter novice server anymore >_<

Practice Mode
- there is no practice mode in free server either

Normal Individual
- same as novice server

Freestyle
- same as novice server

Choreography
- same as novice server

Expert Choreography

*********************************************
1.2 - Team Play

In AuditionSEA now, we currently have 6 different Team play modes, for players to play as a team of 3s or 2s.

-Normal Group
-Choreography
-Couple
-Expert Couple
-Bboy (4 key)
-Bboy (8key)



-Normal Group
This mode is similar to the Normal Individual mode, just that its in team.
Each of the member will play a bar of commands.

The mode starts with lvl 1, to lvl 7, then which the team will be doing lvl 6/7 freestyle moves till you fill up the Freestyle bar to proceed on to lvl 8 and 9, then lvl 8/9 freestyle finally ending off with a Finish move. Penalty of returning to lvl 4/5 when a member miss will be given.

Choreography
This mode is pretty challenging for players doing this mode for the first time. This mode requires all members in the team to do the SAME move in order to get more points and more moves. This mode will be done in Freestyle, for players to come out with their own dance step and show off their team coordination *can be done in 4key or 8key*.

*hint* appoint someone as the "leader" to lead the group of what keys to press together.

It starts from lvl 6 freestyle, and moves up all the way to lvl 9 freestyle, ending off with a Finish move. Teams who does the same will be able to proceed on inputting more commands, however, if one or more of the members does a different move, you will be given a penalty of skipping the next command.

Couple
This is a pretty interesting mode to play in, Team up in pairs, a girl and a guy each, take note only 2 pairs of couple can play on the stage *probably the stage is too small to fit 3 couples ^^ * As soon as the game starts, you will see a long bar of 12 directions coloured blue and grey.

http://i62.photobucket.com/albums/h116/k..._17_22.jpg

http://i62.photobucket.com/albums/h116/k...7_22-1.jpg Scary long line of 18 commands

Don’t be afraid, you will only need to input the commands in blue. This mode is difficult as the commands u have to do are juggled up with the commands in grey, so be alert and make sure you know which one to hit.

Penalty of skipping the next bar will be given if either of the couple misses their command.

When the couple does a “Perfect” at the same time, a heart will appear in the center of the two of them. By the end of the game, if the winning couple has more hearts than the losing couple, there will be a special animation.

0-2 heart difference – the pair will do a “hi-5”
3-4 heart difference – the pair will hug
5-? Heart difference – the pair will kiss
?-? Heart difference – I have no idea, cause I have yet to get more than that.

When the couple get 5 hearts and above, they get a button to couple them up ^^ which allows eachother to appear on one anothers status page, and you gain 3000 den from doing it. If you wish to break up, it will cost the amount of den equal to your lvl x 500

Den achieved in that round can be given to the partner by clicking on the "Give dens to partner button"
This button only appears when the couple did at least 1 heart.

Expert Couple
Couple mode in 8-key.


Bboy (4)
This mode is definitely a challenge. At the start of the game, A coin toss will determine which team will start first. This mode is done in Freestylemode. From freestyle lvl 6 to 9 ending off with a Finish move

Here are the things to take note in the Bboy mode

Counter gauge
This gauge will increase when members of the team does a counter move, or perfect command.

-Words below the counter gauge
-Red turn
-Counter turn
-Blue turn
-Counter turn

Here is the sequence of the game play


Red/Blue turn - Player A from the starting team will play a command

Counter turn - The exact command Player A gave will be shown to the opposite team
-the opposite team members must memorise the command and input it.

Red/Blue turn - Player A from the next team will play a command

Counter turn -The exact command Player A gave will be shown to the opposite team
-the opposite team members must memorise the command and input it.

Finish move - Needless to say, just the usual finish move

Team move - Can be done when there is at least 01 gauge, gives opponent 3 red arrows in the command.

*To activate the Team Move command, hit 0 *on the numpad* instead of the usual spacebar*

This will continue till the end of the song ^^.

More points will be given for each successful counter, no penalties will be given for each missing counters.

Bboy ( 8 )
Its is the same as Bboy (4), but it is from lvl 8 to lvl 9 freestyle ending off with Finish Move

*********************************************
1.3 - NPC Battle Party

Need something? Short of Den? Need to earn quick? Well no worries, Introducing the battle party

Level requirements
A minimum of level 6 is required to play any NPC battles.
A new group of NPCs will be avaiable when you reach the NOVICE, then CLUBBER rank

How to start a battle party(NPC battle)
Firstly,click the make room button. A window will appear asking to input room name and pass. Check(tick) the box 'battle party' above the room name textbar and click ok. That should start of a Battle party room.Warning, u need 300 den to make a room!!!

How the Battle Party(NPC) room works.
You need 300 den to enter the room!!. The room allows only 5 players to play and the NPC talking up one slot.The 5 players will be playing together as a team. You can change the NPC u want to challenge with by clicking the left/right arrow below the NPC. Different NPCs have different song and stage and dance mode selected and fixed, so you cannot change them. You need 5 players in order to start the game.

You dont lose the den by making or joining the room

How the betting system works
There are 2 words below the NPC in a box NEED and PLUS
NEED: The amount of den required to pay to play that specific NPC.
PLUS: The fixed amout of den earned when you win the NPC.
Den is deducted as shown on the NEED when you start a game. When you lose to the npc, you get nothing. How the earning system works. When you win the NPC, u gain the Den displayed in the PLUS and the overall score performance of yourself. The PLUS will decrease by half everytime you win that NPC and it wont increase again unless there is a reset of NPCs or something.

How the Battle system works
When you start the game, you will see the NPC score and your score and a BAR with red and blue at opposing ends. Red is the perfect rating for NPC and blue is the perfect rating for the team. If the red bar fills up the entire bar, you immediately lose but too bad the NPC won't lose if it is the other way round. How to increase your blue bar? Simple, just by getting perfects, the more players getting perfect together(3 people at least for the full effect), the larger the change in perfect rating bar. Lastly different NPCs have different perfect "HAX" time(as in they get long perfect chains), when they do it? well up to you to find out as sometimes its random

Tips to win NPC
1.Do perfects together as a team, the more the better(best to chain perfects too).
2.Fight back the npc by spaming NPC with perfects when the NPC is HAXing,this might stop the hacking NPC.(must have the perfect effect)
4.Also, u can make use of the In-game smiley system, give the NPC all the red faces so that his score is hardy or not increasing, which leads back to the 1st tip.

The Dance Modes
Currently there are only: Choreograhpy, Expert Choreography, Sync 8
You can also do chance(press del to enable chance) if you are confident ^^.

*********************************************
1.4 - General Tips And Tricks

Important Keys To Take Note

F1 - if you are the host in a room and you press this, you start the game. If you are not the host, pressing F1 makes you "ready" up

F2 - pressing this while dancing, will center the camera in the middle of the screen, makes it easier to play somewhat

/w [person's nick] [your message] = send somebody a private message, example : /w Yuumei hi

shift + " = automatically allows you to reply to the last person who private messaged you

insert / 0 button = allows switching of 4keys to 8keys mode, only available when you see the circle with a number inside. (using 8keys will generate more points than 4keys, usually available in normal individual / freestyle / normal group modes)

delete button = allows activation / deactivation of chance mode, only available in free server, available for all modes except freestyle. Chancing gives you 3 extra red arrows every beat from level 6 - 9. To press red arrows, you must press the opposite direction. Example : you see a red arrow pointing left, you must press right instead. Activating chance mode gives more points. So if you chance + 8keys, you will earn more points every beat compared to a person who doesn't chance and uses 4keys.

printscreen button = everytime you press the printscreen button, a screenshot is automatically saved in your audition screenshots folder located @ C:\Program Files\AuditionSEA\AuditionSEA\SCREENSHOT. This hotkey is very useful to take memorable pictures of yourself or to take pictures of hackers and send them for reporting ^_^

arrow keys / number pad 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9 = keys for pressing the directions

ctrl / space = press this when you have input all the directions and when you think the ball has reached the "blue" space of the bar to score points !

ctrl + alt + f = allows you to view the game fps (frames per second) in top left corner (thx to risou)

Tips and Tricks

- try not to play with arrow keys, but play with the number pad instead to familiarise yourself. Ensure your numlock is switched off so you can hit the keys on the number pad. Playing with the number pad gives u a headstart because when you play 8keys, you need to use the number pad.

- start off with slow songs first, and when you get better, proceed on to other songs / modes

- take your time to press the keys, don't rush and remain calm. No point rushing to pressing the keys when you don't know what you're pressing

- if you are nervous, it will be advisable to take in a few deep breaths and calm yourself down

- increase your volume slightly, try to listen to the beat of the song

- practice makes perfect, the more you play, the better you get

- challenge yourself further, everytime you are comfortable with a certain area, example : you can play 120bpm songs quite well, try going further into 130bpm songs to challenge yourself

- play with stronger players and try to beat them if possible, eventually you will see yourself reaching their levels

*********************************************
1.5 - Play Audition In Windowed Mode

This has been thoroughly tested and while some say it contributes to lag (they probably mean client side) and say it makes timing harder, there is nothing wrong with using this and your Audition should - barring unusual circumstance - run fine no matter what you do. However, I will not be held responsible for Bad Shitâ„¢ happening because you used what is essentially a dirty hack that hooks DirectX initialization calls as well as windows API notifications and changes them.

This fix will put Audition in a window and disable the task change notification. What this latter means is that it stops Audition from knowing when you go out or back into it, and thus it won't terminate while multitasking; handy if you're playing in a window, since that's probably why you're windowing it to start with.

Enjoy. Instructions follow.



To get Audition running in a window:
Instructions
Get and unrar DXWnd anywhere
Run dxwnd.exe
From the Edit menu choose Add
Browse for "Audition.exe" at the top, usually found in C:\Program Files\AuditionWorld\WorldVer\
Select to Hook to DirectX9
Select "Do Not Notify on Task Change"
Leave other options as normal
Run Audition normally, and kablammo, you hab windowed mode.
