View Full Version : Enter Sandman! ARGH

This song kills me. I 100% everything but solos A+B (~94%) each time, and always end up with around 311k-320k on expert.

Does someone have an optimal SP path for this song?

I usually hold out the first 3, launch them, then launch the rest when i get them (except for the 2 before the outtro one) then have full SP til almost the end.

This is definitely not as hard as satch boogie, but more frustrating cuz im so close!

It's not as bad as you're making it out to be. I'm not the best at these games, but I got this achievement on the first try. Maybe RB1 helped...

My tips: I don't really go by star power paths, but I mainly activate at points that seem to have a lot of notes. Examples being the chorus, which has quite a bit of chords, and the solo, if you can keep up a good streak in the areas that matter.

You don't need an optimal path for this song. Just save SP, but use it where you think it'll fetch the most points. Sometimes immediate activation isn't the best thing to do, and sometimes you'll need more or less than 3 phrases.

I hope I helped in some way. I attempted to be clear on what I was saying, but sometimes I suck at explanations, so if I lost you somewhere here, let me know.

when i did it i had to crank hs to 4 and then use sp every time there was a long string of green notes at the end i had like 332 something, so if you're still having trouble i'd say turn up hyper speed if its on at all as that seems to help.

I used to FC the solo's, but always mess up only on SP notes and ended up 1k short of the achievement twice. =(

the solo's easy. practice. you should b able to beat it after a few times of 100% it.

I almost FC'd the song on my sightread and got around 355k. It's not very difficult.

on my first try i missed a few in the solo and used sp randomly but still got around 340 or 350k. just keep practicing and you'll get it
