topic hijacked by peppy to make things all right

This is until osz2 will be implemented.

When changing the title or artist in a map, a problem may occur in which you may not be able to submit it without making a duplicate map.

DO NOT SUBMIT IF THE EDITOR "WEB" MENU IS DISABLED. YOUR MAP WILL DUPLICATE.

To fix a duplicating map, do the following:

Easy Method (don't have any local changes):
1. Delete local copy of map.
2. Download copy from osu! website.
3. Go into editor. Make sure the "Web" menu is enabled (not greyed out).
4. Change the Artist/Title info.
5. Do NOT exit the editor.
6. Use File > Open... to change the Artist/Title in other difficulties.
7. Full Submit.

Hard Method (keep local changes):
1. Goto the beatmap info page on the osu! site for your map (http://osu.ppy.sh/b/xxxx NOT the forum thread).
2. Open song setup for each difficulty and set the artist/title back to what is on the website.
3. Go into Song Select and hit F5. Wait a few seconds.
4. Go into editor. Make sure the "Web" menu is enabled (not greyed out).
4. Change the Artist/Title info.
5. Do NOT exit the editor.
6. Use File > Open... to change the Artist/Title in other difficulties.
7. Full Submit.

If you have any duplicated maps, please contact a BAT for resolution.

DO NOT SUBMIT IF THE EDITOR "WEB" MENU IS DISABLED. YOUR MAP WILL DUPLICATE.

peppy deleted it because apparently this information is wrong. I haven't gotten to test title changes myself, though, so I'm not sure what is right or wrong at this point.

this worked for me every time Ive had to change it.

I had trouble changing the name of a map before too and I used this method.
peppy

can I ask, before osz2 blah, why we have to full submit to change the title/artist name?
Every time I've had to do a title/artist change (once), all I did was change it, as normal, and Standard Submission. Nothing bad happened or anything.

/me has a question. What's with wrong titled, already ranked maps?

Examples:

http://osu.ppy.sh/s/8431
http://osu.ppy.sh/s/9524
http://osu.ppy.sh/s/14701

The singer's surname is Hikasa, not Hisaka! Can it be corrected without re-ranking of maps?

Should be fixed with osz2 in the future.

Other way, I'm tired to send this to you NoHitter and peppy... Peppy I think is too busy, so he didn't replied...
SO there is another way... Please follow (is the SAME MESSAGE what I sent to NoHitter and Peppy)

"Hi there, I was pretty confused about the authors/difficult/others settings without duplication...
I tried, tried, tried, and always was disabled the function to see the thread... so... I finally did it for this way (please put on your thread as Advanced Full Submission by gabrielwoj)
1- Get the last copy on "osu.ppy.sh";
2- Open the Songs folder;
3- Search your beatmap name (or version of release);
4- Open notepad;
5- Move the .OSU file into it;
6- At the top, will be the general info;
7- Search: Metadata;
8- You found this:
"[Metadata]
Title: ***
Artist: ***
Creator: ***
Version: ***
Source ***
Tags: ***"
*** = The tittle and more...
9- Edit what do you want, example for version:
Version is difficult, so, my old difficult was easy, but I want to update as Normal, just put Normal (if you write anything there, is the difficult setting...);
10- Save notepad (go at file+save, or just make Ctrl+S);
11- If really need's it, change the name of osu file for adequate artist... [Don't really need it];
12- Open Osu, go on editor and search your map (if osu was already running at background, just do an F5 at list songs)
13- Go on editor, and check if the "Web->This Beatmap's Thread" is activated;
14- If is, you did it, before uploading check all from difficulties, and check the general info of the song (song setup);
15- Now you're ready to upload without any duplication.

^Pretty hard, but worked on my 2 maps:

Thanks, also...
I did everything on that thread you created, and nothing worked with me, if you add this one, may it's good for "ADMINS" of the original PC..."

It totally works, it looks complicated, but works!

Thanks

After changing the name
will the "web" manu become gray?
Sakura
Just something to add:

Please remember when changing artist/title of your beatmaps that it will most probably cause an extra .osb file to be created, make sure you delete those as well and full submit, and modders, keep checking for those specially when you request a mapper to change artist/title

SOOO many problems could've been avoided if i had read this before...
AndreasHD
