- Obstacle timing accuracy ("perfect", "good" and "ok") is no longer displayed on the left part of the HUD, but is now shown in the form of floating texts next to Melody, to make it possible to pay attention to the timing accuracy without being distracted. By default it only shows "errors" (failures), but you can configure it in the "General Options" to show each obstacle's timing accuracy.
- The background lights are now more accurately synced to the frequency spectrum of the music
- The ribbon trail behind Melody (on long obstacles) is now smoother and with a new texture, and it starts a bit sooner when sliding on obstacles
- The transition animation from "walking" to "flying" is now smoother
- Added an option to toggle FPS, in the "Performances" options menu
- Slightly increased the scrolling speed of the background in flying sections, as well as the fog's brightness
- On keyboard, screens waiting for "any key" input to continue now only look for gameplay-bound keys presses, "Enter" or "Space", allowing to take screenshots if you've bound the Steam screenshot key to something other than the Function keys
- Switching from keyboard input to gamepad input during a track will now work when pressing the d-pad or using the thumbsticks (it only worked with the color buttons before)
- Pressing buttons during the intro walk will not trigger failures anymore

Complete rework of the "Flying" sections
I wasn't happy with the current state of the flying mode, as it was too monotonous and didn't feel as "powerful" as it should to represent the most intense parts of a song. This was in part due to the lack of solid obstacles (requiring more complex inputs in Intense and above), and also due to the lack of distinct character animations and background visualizations to enhance the experience.
So I've completely scratched it and made a new flying mode with a new theme!
What I really liked about the old mode was the possibility to have a very high orb density, which isn't possible with solid obstacles in-between due to the animations' length, so the compromise I've found was to have solid obstacles only for long held notes, and orbs for regular notes.
Flying sections should now feel much more intense, and very long ones found in music genre like metal should feel more appropriate. Please let me know in the discussion board if you have any feedback.
- Double arrows mix (Overload difficulty and Custom) are now inverted automatically when using a gamepad. You can still invert that result using the General options menu
- If a respawn would happen during a transition, it will now happen right in the middle of the transition instead of afterwards, giving you more time to anticipate the next obstacle
- Fixed the resolution change confirmation screen not applying video changes beforehand
- Fixed failure animations being horizontally offset in Intense and Overload difficulty
- Removed debug information from the window's titlebar
Quick Patch: v0.7.0.1
- Flying sections are now slightly faster in all difficulties
- Cleaned data files with references to the old flying mode (for faster game loading)
