And I just found the skip button. This bit almost made me give up. I'm either doing something wrong or it's way too hard. The most I got through was about 3/4. >:|

It took me 3 attempts for that. I kept slipping off the rope.

I gave up after about ten. I just couldn't get the rhythm right.

The puzzle is just badly designed and doesn't work like it should. The glass cuts faster by moving it slowly over the rope so you don't slip as opposed to fast, jerky motions. You'd think the opposite would be true but it isn't.

I don't understand what purpose timed puzzles serve in an adventure game other than to frustrate the player. But Resonance is full of problems in reality. Even the story writing is actually not very good if you're really paying attention, and you realize the game is full of plot holes.

I also had issues with the glass cutting. It would jerk out of my hand and then be unresponsive so that the dude coming out of the apartment had enough time to catch me. Very frustrating and annoying puzzle.

Had no problems with it, did it at the first try.

Nice one

Short and fast movements. But not so fast or the glass will skip off the rope by accident.
I did it on my first try, but barely. On a second play I cut it even before the guy got to the stairs.
It's more about the way you do it then how fast it is.

once you realize which part of the glass you use to cut it becomes a lot easier.

No problem for me either, did it on my first try, even when I stop for a few seconds since someone in my house came to talk to me and the scare made me drop the mouse XDXD. If you know what to do you can make it pretty fast. Not the best desingned minigame for an adventure game and it comes out of nowhere, but I think you´re overreacting. Seriously, it´s not that big deal.

I had to use both hands to beat it, as the trackball I use makes it pretty much impossible to hold down a button while wiggling the thing up and down fast and precise enough to cut the rope.
