A friend and I are in debate.

Is the star rating in GH percentage hit based or score based?

    It goes by score. Trust me. Check score hero and you'll see cutoffs are based on single points [i.e. 200000 is 4 stars, 200001 is 5 stars]

    It's not amount of notes hit like buddy just said.

    I dont know, I've noticed that if I play a song perfect and **** up once it usually gives me a 100 percent rating. just did that for me while I was playing 18 and Life (they totally should have picked Youth Gone Wild, but whatever). I hit the strum bar in the middle of a hold because I wasnt thinking and it even made that "you screwed up" noise and still gave me 100%. so who knows anymore.

    thats actually something I noticed being a common thing in GHII.

    thats because youre still hitting 100 percent of the notes, you just bunk up your streak.

    No.. it isnt. scorehero.com and go to cutoff points and theres your confirmation of it being 100 percent score based.

    a.) it wasnt directed at you, so stop your bitching.

    b.) its since been deleted because it was pointless on my part leaving such a simple message.

    so buck up, man.

    Because they have their own ranking system that bases it all the way up to full combos.

    Why are you arguing.. you're wrong, stop acting otherwise

    meh, its just a word, dude. its in the dictionary so it souldnt even be censored, but if they want to ban me because I hate metalcore than so be it, I'll come back with a new name that doesnt offend pansies.

    censorship angers me, just for future reference.

    K, that good enough for you, 1 point difference = 5 stars.

    P.S. look at the eprcentages. Lower percentage on the 5 star one.

    Okay I just played Iron Man and got 94% and 5 starred it easy. score was in the 200k range I think. Now I play Take Me Out, get 97%, and get a too-bad-so-sad 4 stars wit a 150k range.

    The proof is in the scoreboard.

    They all have different cutoffs for 5 stars too that are based on the amounts of notes in the song. You have the abliity to get more points in longer or harder songs or songs with more chords, so you MUST get more points to 5 star it.

    I'm not trying to be a "badass," like online, in my everyday life I will tell anyone to **** off. it isnt like I'm living out some action movie fantasy from behind the keyboard, I'm just a direct guy in general.

    I remember reading about something that says that your star rating actually depends on what your total note multiplier is. In order for a 5-star rating, you're supposed to reach a minimum of at least 2.9. And obviously, given a certain multiplier, and depending on how many notes you hit, will determine your score. But whether or not it's actually correct, is beyond me. I think that score does have a major part in whether or not you get 5 stars, but that note multiplier shpeel also makes sense.

    Oh My God!

    I can't believe how long this thread is going on for.

    All this thread should have been was

    "What determines a five star? Points or Notes hit??"



    (Next Post)"Its points, and I know this because I'm not retarded"



    (Mod)"O sweet, problem solved!!!" **Thread locked**

    QFT. What stars you get 3*, 4*, 5*, etc...is all about how big of a score you get, now of course you aren't going to get as big of a score if you don't hit a lot of notes, you could hit 100% of the notes, but if you constantly mess up and keep a 1x multiplyer then you could 3 star the song still.

    This thread should have died a while ago :p
