Sync movement of cursor and wrist is very important especially when you are playing a fast paced game.

Though that is the case, it always would depend on your personal preference as each and every individual has their own strategy and different ways on how to play games which is why it is very important to learn how to set up your tablet for OSU.
OSU is a free rhythm game which has been developed by Dean Herbert and the game has been inspired by the rhythm game, Osu! Tatakae Quendan. This game currently has about 19.3 million monthly active users. If you love this game or is interested to play this game, then, as mentioned earlier, you will have to set up your tablet. This way, your tablet will be perfect and suitable for the mentioned game.
Tablet mapping is the first thing you must provide attention to as Osu comes with high sensitivity configuration just like any other game. Moreover, you must configure on the tablet specific app the area that you often use on your tablet. Keep in mind that each and every tablet’s manufacturer have their own app for customizing their tablet’s performance without using in-game options. This is a good thing as this would mean that you will be able to adjust the settings according to what you think is suitable without having to access your tablet specific in game options.
Through tablet mapping you will be able to determine which area of the tablet you use. This means the smaller the the tablet mapping that you use, the smaller the area it would cover on your screen. Some would like to use a full area of the tablet while playing, this would mean that most players would then increase their sensitivity.
