They're only 197 Byte iirc and are a pain to remove as they require full submission to remove.
Even if you had 2000 maps on your PC and all of them had osbs in it, you'd only have around 400 additional Kilobyte on your PC, which is not even half a Megabyte, so it would hardly make a difference at all. So, when you come across them, you can gladly ignore them.
This does not mean you should ignore all unused files though. If there is an image or an audio file in the folder that doesn't do anything, you're still allowed to mod that! This is just about ridiculously small files that would not have an impact at all.

In the rare case that there are two or more osbs in the folder, kill em all.
19:58 <Apoorsoulwhoshallnotbenamed> : hey xgor
19:59 <imeanreallyleavethatguyalone> : remove your OSB :U
19:59 <Xgor> : FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
19:59 <Xgor> : FFFFFFFFFFFF
19:59 <Mashley> : No
19:59 <Mashley> : Fuck that
19:59 <Mashley> : why would you care if there's an osb there
19:59 <Mashley> : seriously
19:59 <Mashley> : it's a tiny file that osu! automatically generates
19:59 <Mashley> : just ignore it
19:59 <ppy> : Mashley: seriously
19:59 <ppy> : tell every single person this for me
20:00 <ppy> : i dont' know how many times i've seen people say "delete .osb"
20:00 <ppy> : i have no idea who started it and why
20:00 <ppy> : but it's pointless and stupid

Stickied for a month or so, until the message gets through to everyone.

Yeah, most people did it. Someone started it, and everyone followed him/her.



And this is the end!

I like how I'm the one who got outed for it when it was my first time ever pointing it out and I only started checking for them since I started bubbling and I never thought it was necessary but I thought we were supposed to point it out since everyone else did and I'M SORRY ;_;

Suddenly, kudosu ammount per map will decrease in an incredible way

Rivers will get dry, and crops won't grow

People will start starving, no more kudosu will be at hand, and modders won't star maps wihout Kudosu in echange, SP per map will decrease and decrease, until every single map has below 7 SP

Then, BATs and MATs won't be able to give bubbles, and there will be no more ranked maps.

Osu! will then start to fall appart. Memories of the times on where 1 map was ranked per day will be as precious as water itself. #modHelp will eventually stop being so active and it will get closed, after that, it's just a matter of time...


...just a matter of time...

Well, I never imaged my rage has the power to remove one of the stupidest mod stuff in osu! history!

Well now i know :D

Well, I did it because of how no unused files should be in the folder, and well, empty .osbs are unused aren't they? Even if they're so tiny they don't really make a difference.

Oh well. I'll ignore them from now on.

This makes me happy on so many levels

Oh thank GOD.

I'm pretty sure this was brought up in the MAT HQ before, and multiple BATs said that we WERE supposed to tell mappers to remove the .osbs. Oh well. (:

The game generates an empty .osb. Just one. The mapper has to fail at life to have more than one empty .osb. >:(

I saw 3 in a map once, no idea how they got there.

If title/artist change, it generates another .osb with the new title/artist
