Re: Will there ever be a dark mode?

Hello Michele, welcome to the club. Your best bet for getting an answer to that question would be to send an email to customer service and ask them. I would hold off though, and wait until after this impending new version of Playground Sessions is released. I suspect "dark mode" will not be there, I...

Re: Frustrated - Correct Notes with 4%

Hello Ed,

Try sending an email to the address I posted earlier in this thread. It sounds like you have something going on that needs some troubleshooting.

The software considers any portion of a lesson as completed if you can play the piece 80% correct. You should keep pressing for 100% though.

Re: Pace of lessons vs. MIxing it up vs. results

Hello MiddleC, That is a good practice plan for a beginner. I think the one thing you are missing is "repetition". Getting 100% on a lesson or song by no means that you are done. You still need to commit it to memory, so that you can play it at 100% at will. A couple of tips to accomplish this - kee...

Re: Video performance - Prelude in C

Great job again, FlatPanda. Not sure I could ever play it that fast, even if I had all the notes right.

I am hoping to complete the challenge before the next one starts :)

Re: Can I just move on?

PianoMan57, That is a tough question to answer. The easy answer is yes - there is little in the software to keep you from skipping over a lesson here and there. The consequences of that are many. Courses are unlocked dependent on achieving certain levels within the app. So you may miss out on some c...

Re: Turn off line

No MiddleC, I can only speak for the desktop PGS but the cursor (vertical line) cannot be turned off in this version of the software. Yes, it is definitely a crutch, but for me very helpful when I start a lesson or song. You can learn the entire thing without having to count! What I do is after lear...

Re: Prelude in C - no practice points

The practice points and levels are a throwback to the early days of PGS, where students competed against each other on how they progressed through the program. There was even a leaderboard. The leaderboard disappeared 5 years ago, and since then the practice points and level numbers don't hold much ...

Re: Frustrated - Correct Notes with 4%

I don't see any screenshots. I know that seems to be a problem with these forums.

Try sending a quick email (with the screenshot) to:

support@playgroundsessions.com

That gets you into the company's support system and they will be able to help you.

Re: PlaygroundSessions on Linux

Hey, hey, hey, welcome Albert. I am one of those Linux/WINE users. PGS is an outlier when it comes to WINE as it works nearly perfectly on that platform. I agree with @Moreless that the problem you experienced was likely a blip on the server side. I am running Fedora 32, kernel 5.8.14-200, with WINE...
