Hey guys, today I came up with an idea:
How about the feature of being able to set a default beatmap background which can be enabled/disabled and would not change the beatmap itself?
It would work like a full-time 100% dim, but you get to choose what background you use.

Not everyone would use this feature, obviously, but I and surely some other players would have a better experience with that feature.
Tell me what you think about this idea ;)

Love the idea, was thinking the same thing. Instead of going through each individual beatmap and setting background dim to 100% or deleting backgrounds entirely (Sorry for making you rage, Osu!), this option would be a great alternative.

*It would also help some of the younger players who have to play osu on family computers with some of those suggestive nightcore maps ;)*

I'd vote if I could, donor raaaaaaank!

So basically giving the playfield.png of skins an actual purpose other than editor? lol

Not a bad idea, it would be nice to have this option.

I voted, even tho I'd rather have my background dim to 100%, I still think this deserves recognition.

I actually like this idea, even though I probably wouldn't use it. Maybe have a "Disable background" option in settings that would allow the playfield.png to be used instead, and therefore would make this a skinnable feature.

I think this is great! Its not like it ruins the gameplay for anyone and the change should be toggleable!

This Feature can't hurt anything if it were to get implemented, at least not what i know off :D

I agree. Most of the time they are not even related to the song itself, which makes me wonder why somebody set them as background in the first place.

So basically you have the same background as in osu! front page for all Songs? The idea i got from this was that each Song would use that BG. Not sure if its what was suggested. Any way, only gonna throw a start if it is what i think.

This needs to happen. If I intend to ever play this game in a public place I do not want anime women invading my screen on map selection!

I disagree. Map backgrounds are the choice of the mapper, and should (if done properly) reflect how the mapper feels about that song. Using a default background would defeat the purpose of relating the background to the song (psychology).

Don't download maps that are subject to those backgrounds (i.e. TV Size, "kawaii" anime).

If a player feels the need to have a default image for the maps, for me it would just be a blank black screen for everything, why not allow them to do so? I would say over 95% of the songs I have played in this game have some form of anime background that appears during breaks and map selection. I am not strictly speaking of inappropriate images. Personally, I think it would be incredibly nice to just have an option to either set your own background for all maps or just disable map art entirely.

EDIT: I do not disapprove of anime, in fact I enjoy it, but there should definitely be an option to disable or change map art, as an aesthetic. Some map art images are blurry as hell too, which is annoying.
