Failed to show preview image! (EIdSocketError)

Also my banner doesn't update but I guess these issues are connected. What to do?

There is currently a problem for those playing osu full screen. The banner shows your Online/Offline status, but does not show song info. This is related to a fix in the latest osu update:
[peppy] Don't set window title when running osu! fullscreen.
I believe that givenameplz is working on a solution at the moment. For time being, those affected can try using borderless instead (which still displays song info through your signature).

Hello,

as Oinari-sama said, due to the new osu! patch, you are not able to send data when playing in fullscreen. You can use a workaround and play in borderless window mode, simply uncheck fullscreen in your osu! options and choose your desktop resolution.
(Please bear in mind that this might cause different behavior on some machines, performance wise.)

I will write more about this later, when I find the time to do so.
(I am also looking for and working on alternatives.)

However, Stefan's case might be a different problem, if you may, please PM me a screen of your running osu!Post application (and maybe information about your PC).
I will contact you when I am home.
(Please also make sure that osu!Post is not blocked by any firewalls, but under any circumstances, do not disable the firewall completely. You wouldn't detach your door if you only want to let one of your friends inside.)

Maybe you should make an arcadey style signature. Just sayin.

Problem has been solved, simply run the application and let it update, then restart it. Everything should work after that.
Thanks for the report.

I've been using this for awhile, and I all I can say is that I love it.

Just wondering if you ever have plans to add status updates for people that are "Editing" or "Modding" maps as long as it has an ID?

Lanturn is [Online]
Modding:
EBTC - Billow on the Eternal Peak [Hard]

for example.


Regardless, if you can actually do this or not. This is still a wonderful little program. Thanks :3

Sorry for the late answer.
I am not able to access this data, I also can't say if there will be the possibility in the future.
But thanks for your feedback, its very much appreciated.

P.S.:
I am reworking a lot of the background stuff happening behind the scenes of osu!Post, in other words the website.
I also added a new template in a "Userbar" design, the size and style might change in the future, still testing with it.
There are some other designs coming "soon" as well, but for now I am focused on officially removing the "beta" status.
This will happen when I finished the backend rework, in a few weeks or so.

Greetings,

just a short update.

I've been working quite a lot on osu!Post for the last weeks and think its now ready to move out of "Open Beta".
The website is fully functional, new features will come in over time.
(Website contains a "News" block for changes regarding the website)
The application itself has been reworked aswell to fix most of the performance issues, not many changes in the design of it but other than that the background stuff is all new.
The next thing is to fix up the application documentation again and after that the documentation for the website.
(Stuff like outgoing data and such might be interesting for people that send data to their own servers.)

If there are any issues or requests, feel free to drop a message.

P.S.:
I am still working on a new icon, this one is somewhat a placeholder, I just wanted to stop using the osu! logo for it.
Suggestions welcome.

Am I the only person having trouble customising the signature?

The "Save & Preview" and "Save & Exit" doesn't seem to be working for me. Changes I made just seem to be lost after hitting those buttons.

I've already tried clearing browser cache and cookies but it doesn't help. Just wondering if it's a stand alone case...

Greetings!

You need to upload an custom image for that.
Its not intended (and possible) to change the template signatures.

I looked into it, your custom settings are fine, but as said there is no uploaded image.

P.S.:
I added a few more features to the customization, more to come sometime.
(If there are any other feature request shout them out, they'll be most likely implementet.)
Oinari-sama
The thing is though, I did upload a custom image but the buttons "ate" it:


Very weird...

EDIT: Wait... I was derping hard today. Was trying to upload a JPG all along orz
Is it possible to return an error notification when a user upload a non-PNG in the future?

I see, this will be fixed in the future, I plan to remove the "only PNG-restriction" soon anyways.
Thanks for pointing it out.

Would it be possible to have mapImage be resizable like userAvatar? I'd like to be able to make it smaller than 160x120.

Thanks!

Sure thing, will be done either today or within the next days.
If you have any other requests, just throw them out there.
I also consider, as I said somewhere before, to add custom fonts if there is a demand for it.

Edit:
You can now set the width and height for the mapImage.
Ishkiz
Thanks for the quick reply! I'll be sure to let you know if I think of anything else.

Short update.
I found some time for fixing the fullscreen problem.
If you want to play in fullscreen, you need to enable the MSN integration inside osu!.
osu!Post will still work without doing this, but if you want to play fullscreen and post your full "Now Playing" information, you need to do this.

Just look inside the Online-Tab of the osu!-Options.

Ceui
Great!!!!!
Thanks~!

I'm confused on how to customize your own signature?
Topic Starter
givenameplz
Greetings!

First you need to login here, if you scroll further down past the templates you'll find a Configure button, inside the Custom signature box.
Go there, after that you can upload your image and customize it with the values in the textbox below, a little documentation about the values is in the About box, accessible by hovering over them.

I want to rework the custom interface soon anyways, to make it more user friendly.

Done.

I reworked the config site a little, Custom Signature is now on top and the Customize button will only show if you actually uploaded an image, the customization has also been improved quite a lot.
If you got any feedback on that, feel free to drop me a message.
I will add the Font Selection feature soonish, same goes for the Rank Display.

(As stated in the main post and on the customization site, things will more likely be added if there is a request/demand for it, so if you need a feature, you know where to drop the message.)

Sure thing, already done.

On a side note:
I am also experimenting with a new type of signature, thats quite similar to the in-game panels or the ones XPJ38 created.
Its changing its color depending on status, like the one in-game.
black -> Offline
blue -> Online (Idle)
white -> Playing
I might add a similar thing like the Widgets from osu!Rank have, display rank changes and so on.
Thats just a side thing, so I don't know when its going to be finished.
(You can see a sample of it in my signature.)

Greetings!

I am not sure if you still got the problem, as your posts seem to work now.
If you still got trouble, feel free to contact me via PM.
Keep in mind that you need to enable the osu! MSN integration if you are playing in Fullscreen mode.
But as I can see on the Screenshot this is not the case, so this shouldn't be the problem.

Looks like osu!Post couldn't recognise the running osu! instance, in rare cases if osu!Post is at fault restarting osu!Post helps.
Oinari-sama
Found a strange phenomenon, not sure how to reproduce it but I'll leave it here for the record:

I usually start up osu!Post, then manually start osu afterwards. Been doing this since early beta and had no problem at all.

Since a few days ago, I noticed these "strage" extra db files appearing in my osu folder:


...and my Collections isn't saving at all. After fiddling around and brainstorming tonight (thanks to Nathanael), I realised that something else is accessing osu!.db and that forces osu produce a dump instead of writing out the normal osu!.db file. I closed osu!Post before starting osu and that fixed the problem. I can have osu!Post running again and manually start osu just like before.

The problem simply went away and I'm unable to reproduce it again. I'll stick to my usual routine and report back if the problem returns.
Topic Starter
givenameplz
Strange, I am not even putting locks on it when reading the .db file.
I can't really reproduce this, but I will investigate if osu!Post is the cause and why.
And for the collections, I am not touching them at all.

I will keep an eye on this, if there are any more reports about this feel free to PM me or drop a post here.

Just added it.
Your ID is the same as your osu! ID, to look it up simply "Search" your name on the osu!Post page.
