This is my entry for the skinning contest #3. This skin is themed about the cutest Deltarune character: Ralsei, and uses the tritanopia color palette. As always, I tried to give to the player the best gameplay possible.
I made the art myself.

With 1119 votes, the skin got the 2nd place OwO! I didn't excepted to reach such a high place with this skin. I really did my best for making the cutest and with the best gameplay I could made. Thanks you so much for your support ^^.

You can personalize the skin with the files inside the Extras folder, such as change notes or change skin screen size ratio.

How to use an extra?
Versions 1.2 and newer
Each folder is 1 Extra. To apply an Extra:
  1. Open the folder of the Extra you want.
  2. Copy ALL files on it (except the files starting by a '!').
  3. Paste the files in the skin's root folder.
  4. If there's a '!INSTRUCTIONS.txt', there's specific manipulations to do. Just follow them.
  5. If there's a '!SKIN.INI_VALUES.txt', you will have to edit manually the skin.ini file in the skin's root folder too. Open the file with a text editor.
    * Text in [] represents the beginning a section.
    * Each other line is in the format '<Setting>: <Value>'.
    For specific sections, you will have some settings with a specified value.
    For each setting, find it inside the skin.ini, then replace the value by the one given inside the '!SKIN.INI_VALUES.txt' file.
    If the setting doesn't exists, add it (still in the correct section), with the value given in the '!SKIN.INI_VALUES.txt' file.
/!\ If the Extra contained an skin.ini file, custom skin.ini values may has been overwritten. If you used another Extra which included a '!SKIN.INI_VALUES.txt' file, repeat step 5 for each Extra with such a file to ensure that everything works properly.
Versions 1.0 and 1.1
  1. Open the skin folder, then open the folder Extras.
  2. You can see the list with all Extras. Choose the element you want and open it to see all versions of the element available and open the related folder.
  3. (Skip this step if it's a patch which change the screen ratio.) Then open the folder with the option which interest you.
  4. Copy all files.
  5. Paste these files in the skin folder. If there is already existing files, replace them.
Note: you don't need to manually modify skin.ini

List of available Extras:
  1. 16:9 and 16:10 screens patchs: change skin screen ratio.
  2. CTB bananas: 2 styles, in 2 sizes each.
  3. CTB fruits: 2 sizes. Note: doesn't modify the bananas!
  4. Cursor: 3 colors. (only 2 in versions 1.0 and 1.1)
  5. Hit300 taiko: enable/disable them during gameplay.
  6. Hit320 mania: enable/disable them during gameplay.
  7. STD Hitcircles: 5 differents styles (v1.2+ only)

Didn't expect a lot from this skin at first, but was pleasently surprised
I'm really enjoying this skin however I would like it if you added circle or arrow support for mania as I struggle a lot with bar skins

If you downloaded the no character skin version before 2022/08/23 18:03 GMT+2, REDOWNLOAD the skin!

There was incorrect files in the 16:9 patch, making the skin broken on 16:9 skin, and it's been fixed. The normal version doesn't have this issue.

OMG the menus look * fabulous *
Thank you so much, this will be my skin forever
This skin is literally the only one of all the contest submissions that I can enjoy the std gameplay with. The minimalist style really fits the rest of the design. I only play on lazer so I can't see much of your art, but I really respect the time and effort you put into this. Well done.
let's go corne!!
