Vertical sync (Vsync)
Vsync can cause the timing to go slightly "off" occasionally, making the game harder.
60 FPS and 120+ FPS
Frame rate is capped at half the refresh rate (e.g. 30 FPS on a 60 Hz monitor). Playing the game above 60 Hz will cause the game to play too fast and mess up timings. Ulala's Dance mode will play fine above 30 FPS.
