It's cold outside...

My new skin, and my entry for the skinning contest #2, and finished #10 among the 17 skins >_<. As always, I tried to make a skin with the best gameplay possible (for exemple, "300" and nightcore sounds disabled). And because I want a FULL skin, this one supports all modes too.

Also, I tried to use less already-made assets. It's the first time I make my own hitsounds too.

  1. A ton of snow (the contest was winter themed, so...)
  2. Skin version: 2.5
  3. Supports 16:9 and 16:10 screens.
  4. High quality elements: all sprites have their @2x versions for large screens.
  5. 2 skin versions: DT (for DoubleTime mod) and NM (the rest).
  6. A lot of animated elements in 60 FPS.
  7. Removed Nightcore sounds.
  8. Focused gameplay, without the hit 300 and reduced the apparition time of hit 50 and hit 100.
  9. No pippidon to not be distracted.
  10. The CTB catcher is probably cute UwU
  11. Rounded notes in Mania.
  12. Mania supports all amount of keys (1-18k).
  13. Folder for mania elements: customize easly your mania gameplay through the skin.ini.
  14. Integrated Extras folder : a lot of options to personalize the skin.
  15. Supports supporter features.

  1. Skin release.
You can personalize the skin with the Extras (or add-ons) (1 element + 1 parameter).
How to use an extra?
  1. Go here and open the 'Extras' folder.
  2. Here's the list of the add-ons. Pick the add-on you want (open the folder with the add-on you want).
  3. Open the folder with the parameter you want. (skip this step if you change the screen ratio).
  4. Copy all files.
  5. Paste these files in the skin folder. If there is already existing files, replace them.
IMPORTANT: if you see a !README.txt, open it. It contains some additional instructions, especially about the skin.ini if needed

The Extras works with any versions of the skins (it's possible to change the version only with extras btw). Here's the list of Extras:
16-9 & 16-10 screen
Changes the screen ratio of the skin.
You have to use one of them if you don't use the skin on a 16:9 screen.
Note: using this extra reset the 'HP bar' if you customized it.
