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.

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.

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.

How to costumize the signature?
[ C L S ]
OMG it was really Cool
Tazze
really nice program ^^
Nathanael
Its a good project and I like it. ;D
  • Suggestions
  1. Add the Visitor font (commonly used on signatures).
  2. Allow users to use separate images at online status (online/offline).

A little suggestion: delete the cache after every hour.
Since a lot of people do long play sessions and they play lots of beatmaps, sometimes the cache of the app becomes very high, and sometimes I see in the task manager that osu!post uses even more RAM than osu! itself.
So, my suggestion is to delete the cache hourly.
Fantinja
Awesome :p

thanks for the report and sorry for the late reply.
The high RAM usage will be fixed with the next update.

I will consider this, but I need to rework some other things first. (This is on my list, actually.)

Greetings!

I just added two new features.
I'll just leave them here.

New features:

  1. Rank output
  2. Game mode icon (Last played mode.)
And also a list of things I currently work on that will most likely come up next.

Currently working on:

  1. Stats output (pp/ acc./lvl/etc.)
  2. Seperate images (offline/online/playing)
  3. Transparency for fonts
  4. Transparency for Avatar & Map image
  5. Left/Right/Center align (Better than the one that exists...)
  6. "Size" option for the Game mode icon.
The customization interface will get a rework again soon, now that I added three more boxes its getting pretty crowded.
If there is anything else, as always, feel free to tell me.

The osu!Post backend is now fully compatible with Piotrekols app osu!StreamCompanion!
So if you stream a lot and still want to use the osu!Post signature, simply switch to osu!SC!
A big feature of osu!SC is also the "Waching"/"Playing" status, so if you spectate someone or watch a replay it won't be shown as "Playing" on your signature, but "Watching" instead.
(The osu!Post app will be updated with that feature later on.)

New features
  1. Cleaned up the customization a little and finally added a color picker
  2. Added the cursor coordinate if you hover over your image (while customizing), so it should be a little bit easier to place everything correctly

I'd also like to implement easier customization by drag & droping the items on the actual images, but no promises and ETA on that.

I can see that, my connection isn't the best either.
JPG files will be allowed from now on.

The output image will still remain PNG for now.

Yay, looks awesome!

Am I doing something incorrectly? This never used to happen. It never shows me playing any maps, and the log always says "mapName: NoMap"
I also couldn't get the rank to change either. It would always stay at #80,311

Did you enable the MSN integration of osu!?
And regarding the rank, it is ony updating every few hours.
So this is somewhat intended behavior.

Yes, MSN integration is enabled. That's why I'm super confused! I never had any problems when I used it before

Nevermind what I said, the problem here are the new changes in the .db file of osu!.
I'd recommend switching to osu!StreamCompanion if you don't want to wait for the osu!Post update.
(Baiscally the same tool with additional functions and fully included osu!Post support.)
I will update osu!Post itself within the next days when I get to do it, it will automatically update when you start it up then.

Just uploaded the fix for the new .db format, finally got around to do it.
There might be some "follow up"-updates, but osu!Post will automatically update like always, so don't worry about it.

If there are still problems, feel free to leave a post or write a PM directly.

P.S.:
Thanks to Ishkiz & SlasherZX for testing a few things.

I am not sure if this is already "fixed" as I noticed you already changed your image, but you can select another image/custom image here.
Simply log in with your name and key.

Hehe, thanks.
I am glad you like it!

Development


Just a quick note on the development, I am currently reworking the page content and also the design.
The design will be adjusted to fit the "osu!Theme", we'll see how it works out.
As for the content, the site will most likely be easier to handle then and it will also provide more information, such as "About" or "Tutorials".
Also, the links of the page will change, but don't worry, the old signature links will still work.

So I'm having the same, not showing what I'm playing problem. inb4 it should've updated, but it's still acting weird. I've already integrated the MSN option and such but still no luck. :/

osu!Post no longer seems to detect when I'm online. Not sure if anyone else is having this issue or if it's just something on my end. If it is on my end, I'm not sure what could be causing it, as everything seems to look fine. No errors in the logs either.

I won't update it anytime soon, if you want a good alternative for now, you should check osu!StreamCompanion it has many good features including osu!Post support. I will still look into whats causing the trouble, but the next update will take some time as I want to rewrite osu!Post in another language.
Top Bunk
Thanks for the alternative! Using that seems to work for now. Good luck with rewriting/updating it when you're able to. I look forward to it.
