If you keep missing targets or score very low even after repeated gameplay, it is likely that your movements are not tracked or detected properly by Starri for the following reasons:
There is not enough lighting or there is a very strong backlight
If your play environment is not properly lit, whether it is too dim or too bright, the camera will not be able to detect your body movements.
Players' faces, eyes or hands are covered partially
Recognizing players' face, especially eyes, and hands are critical for detecting body movements accurately. Avoid covering your face or eyes, e.g. by long hair, hats or facial masks. If you must wear a facial mask, choose blue or lighter color ones. Please also make sure your hands are not covered, e.g. by long sleeve shirts.
The camera detects the bodies of non-players or other objects during a game.
Try to avoid playing in a crowded or high-traffic area where other people/objects would come in and out of the line of sight of the camera. If possible, try to play in an area with a plain and static background. It is also important to avoid clothing:
- With dense, repetitive patterns like grids and small animals.
- Of the same color as your background, e.g. white clothes with white walls in the background.
- With long and loose leaves.
The front-facing camera is not placed at the right height and tilted angle.
Please refer to How can I set up my device to play Starri? ↗︎. Make sure the front-facing camera can see your body, including your head, hands and arms.
There is a change of players with significantly different body heights.
When there is a significantly different body height change (e.g. adults vs. young children) during a game, the movements may not be detected properly. Try putting the device higher or lower if the player is higher or lower.
