Need Darts help? Try this...

Made a new thread to focus on darts:
There are two approachs to darts, using a dart throwing motion and using a 'punching' motion. After floundering around for months, incapable of getting the harder achievos nor of beating a champion opponent, I feel I have finaly figured out how to put the dart where I want it almost every time.
.
Once I figured this out I got every darts achievement in less than an hour.
.
1. We're going with punching motion here. Stand straight on with your tv and point your fist at the screen. Stoop your head down, slouch, however you need but I feel its best if you have your hand in your field of vision but this isn't a deal-breaker. This is the key, hold your fist as though it were holding a mug of hot liquid (like you're holding the handle).
.
2. Slowly *slide* your hand away from the tv; and *slide* your hand back at the tv. The cursor is still going to wiggle a little bit, no matter how still your hand is, so don't worry it isn't "you", its normal. When you slide your hand away from the screen you will get a "lock", but don't throw the dart yet, keep your fist sliding toward and away from the tv. Get a comfort zone, so that you can get a lock pretty much every time you pull your hand back.
.
3. This sliding action should be just like if you were sliding a mug of hot fluid across a table, ie gently and completely flat, just like it were on a table. Now, out of all those lock-ons, pick the "perfect" one, ie. EXACTLY where you want the dart. Don't rush, a lot of the locks are going to be 'nearly perfect' or 'way-off'; don't worry, just keep your 'mug on the table', sliding back and forward until the lock is perfect.
.
4. The hard part, release. Once you have the whole 'smooth, repeated' locking down you're half-way there, now you have to master the release. Everyone's going to be a little different here, some people droop a shoulder, some raise or lower thier arm. All I can say is keep your mug on the table, and push it hard enoughthat a little of the hot liquid would spill out, but not hard enough to be considered a punch. Hold the mug the whole time, don't open your hand to release. To keep my wrist from changing my throw I kind of hold my hand at an angle similar to holding a Star Trek Phaser, but keep telling yourself its hoilding a mug of fluid.
.
10-180s. Your first throw should be straight at the trip-20, ie. wait until your lock is centered on this spot. To keep your next two from hitting this middle dart, move a little to the right and then a little to the left andyou'll get a dart on each side of that one. Remeber, wait until you get the perfect lock you want and then *sliding* motion.
.
Hope this proves to help someone somewhere,
