We had this exact same topic going a while back if you'd like to look through the replies there too, Toad Fan.
if this thread degenerates like the last one, it'll be locked just as quickly. consider yourselves warned.

all the special bits are white. You want to pick them up for their multiplier bonuses, but there are a couple that make your paddle smaller that you may want to avoid if you're not quite up to speed with the level you're playing. again, memorization (remembering at which point in the song which special bits show up) is the only way to know for sure.

also, there is no way to decrease the rate at which the Nether bar fills (or to increase its overall length so that it fills more slowly), if that's what you're asking, not to my knowlege, anyway. feel free to correct me, anybody -- i'd love to know how to do that myself. :3

You get the Biggest Quiver from the horseback shooting range at the Gerudo Fortress, not from a shop. you have to rack up 1500 points, which is a beast and a half, as i recall.

I think what's happening is that the shops have arrows available in packs of 50, but if your bag/quiver/whatever is already full, they'll refuse to sell to you. If you only had like 39 arrows, they'd sell you more no problem, but since you probably already have 40 when you're trying to buy more thinking it's a quiver upgrade, they're refusing and you think they're just not selling the upgrade. :3

(a) memorization. with enough practice, you get the feel for which special bits will do what to you, and also where you need to be to catch the special bits (there are some places that are nearly impossible to get through without catching 'em)
(b) the way the bars work is that you go up levels for filling the one by doing well, and then there's the secondary bar that fills as you miss beats. no matter what level you're at (Hyper, Mega, Super, whatev'), as soon as the secondary bar fills, you drop one level. If you're just on Hyper (or whatever the starting level is, i never pay attention lol) , that's when you drop down into Nether. The bars work the same in Nether as they do in the other levels, only if you fill the secondary bar in Nether by missing too many beats, you'll lose the game.
(c) haven't played multiplayer with it yet, so i dunno, lol :3

Do you really think people r going to give away personal info? I mean its crazy. I think PictoChat should be online.

considering the system's target age is silly, impressionable kids, i absolutely believe there would be kids giving out personal info and people trying to hook up with minors via PictoChat, 'friend' system or not. too easy to make random 'friends' online, which ruins it for the rest of us.

There's already the Wi-fi FC exchange for everyone to upload all their friend codes to... don't worry, it was a good idea, it just already exists. Also, Magi is right about the separate threads being better for organizing matches and stuff, as this thread would rapidly fill with random conversation all around the FCs and be hard to navigate. :3

That's delightfully efficient of you. I'm not even past the first five minutes as of yet. New record, presumably.

You'd totally think we were talking on MSN and I knew when you were gonna post or something. Of course that would not be so.

Are you just having some fun with your new friend, or is there something I should know for serious? :|

Actually, there's already an active Wi-Fi FC exchange thread -- even though it's technically in the Wii section of the forums, i see people discussing DS FCs in there. You're more than welcome to comb that thread and post your collected results in a reply to it if you'd like one big 'database' post. as for organizing matches, the best thing to do is to check for a dedicated thread on the forums and use that so that everything is public and out in the open and interested parties can see who's active or wants to play. Uno has one, as does bomberman blitz. I didn't find one for DQ: Monsters, so you're more than welcome to make one if you like. You can also check the chat at any time to see if anyone's on who wants to play.

No thanks, I've abandoned that game for now - I'll go back to it another time. I'd rather play through it on my own - I managed it with Twilight Princess but Ocarina isn't quite as clear in where you should be going. If I do it, it'll be without using a guide - I'm funny that way.

just remember, i'm here if you need even the slightest hint to get moving, man. i know how you feel about doing it by yourself without guides, though. :3
