Expanded one handed mode
Are there any plans for adding more options for the one handed mode? I was disappointed to find that the only songs available were expert, and basically unplayable without a ton more practice. Turning on the no arrow option would help, but these two modes are mutually exclusive. I would settle for just one lower difficulty level, even without expanding the song list.

I tried the one handed mode but just left it after a few seconds because the sheer amount of hits is just messed up for me.
I LOVE "minimalistic" versions of games. Example: AudioSurf - I ONLY played the mono racers because the colors were just messed up. I hoped this would be identical in beats and flow but just one handed. But this is just "too much". Maybe I need more training but a "Regular" and "Hard" mode for one handed would be neat.

you want a harder 1 handed than expert? You already FC'd the 5 songs?

I agree, if only for people who only have one arm they can game with. What we have now is too daunting.

The only issue I have with them is that they are quite the opposite of what I expected them to be. I thought they would be easier than the normal levels since you don't have to worry about the color and can focus just on the direction. But when I tried them I got absolutely destroyed.

An easier difficulty would be nice to get started in that mode.

But you're right, getting comfortable with expert in regular mode helps a lot for one handed since it's mostly the same map just with all blocks in the same color and some tweaks here and there to make it doable.

I have, it really isn't that bad. There are very few blocks that trip you up. Most of it flows really well. Especially when you compare it with expert in no arrow mode. That's just ♥♥♥♥♥♥ up, I'm happy if I even get to the end there. :D

I started working on a script that automatically creates single-saber maps from your entire Beat Saber custom song library. It's called "single-saberize" and there are instructions on Github, but if you need help setting it up let me know. It's a work in progress but I'd like to know what you think so far. https://github.com/Landerson352/single-saberize

I honestly agree. One-Saber mode needs lower difficulties that work their way up to expert. Hard wouldn't be boring except for the hardcore crowd, which seems to think that games should only be for experts, and that being a 'casual' is a bad thing.

It's like the argument that 'something is too hard, therefore it should be changed.' Casual players use this argument all the time. However, hardcore players use the bruatlist approach, where 'if it's easy, it should be changed.'

There is no legitimacy to either argument, really. The only argument that should ever be made is that 'there should be something for all skill levels in any given game for the audience it is targeting.'

Unless it is, of course, Dark Souls. That game, however, is designed to be that way. This one is not.

Just +1'ing this, I like the idea of a double-grip stance but don't understand why it's a reduced song list and only expert level difficulty.

to be fair I expected one hand mode to ..... remove one or the other colour from the game making all the songs playable thus ha ving all the songs even customly downloaded.... I dont get why cant you add that option for all the song
It's not a question of difficulty I have a disabled friend who only has the use of one hand and was hoping to allow them to play...
i'm one hand disabled and would like more songs to be compatible in one saber mode. so i'm adding to the convo.
