Piano Keys Module

What do you get when you drop a piano down a mine shaft? A flat minor.

This module employs the use of a standard 12-tone piano keyboard and identification of symbols from common western music notation as its main gimmick.

Cruel Variant
This module comes with a cruel variant! If you remember the mod settings file, that is now no longer in use. Instead, Cruel Piano Keys is a bona fide separate module, that can only be manipulated by the Mod Selector.

Limited Time - Festive Variant
To reign in this festive time of year, there's a new festive module available, complete with christmas tunes to play!

Official Manual Page
The manual PDFs are included in the download. However, you can also go to the following links to view the manuals:

Mission Makers

Nice module for hardcore players, can get a tiny bit overboard at times. The cruel piano module in particular can be quite excessive; the complexity of transposing down a retrograde inverse can be absurd for non-pianists. The answer note sequences are a bit long as well, which lengthens the wasted time when the expert dictates the answer – I would consider shortening the solution prime sequences to about 4 or 5 notes, since the difficulty would be roughly unchanged and the punishment for getting it wrong would be the same, with the only difference being that the time cost of the module would be diminished.

@Wowerful The keyboard on the module actually corresponds to the correct key notes on an actual piano. The manual page includes a diagram of the portion on the piano that is on the module, labelled with the correct letters/notes, for those who don't know the keys already.

How do you know what note you are pressing?

This has been rebuilt for the new version of KTaNE coming up. If you're having problems at time of this message being posted, either switch to the current Public Beta on Steam, or wait for the new version to drop.

@JtheMan if you have the "Mod Selector" mod installed you can deactivate the Cruel version of the module

is there a version without the stupid cruel piano keys?

[TRADUCTION FRANCAISE] I did a French translation of the Manual [] for my players. Feel free to check it.
