Okay, before I have manual raging and judgmental anguish in this post, or even calling of "DUPLICATE" or other certain callings, please remember this is just request. It may change depending on opinions of osu! users and skinners alike and only helps benefit the game itself further then it already has.
For TL:DR people.
Pretty much took multiple requests of menu-backgrounds and edit it based on my reasoning. Cool or not cool? Gimme some feedback to make this appeal better to the developers. If you give me something half-assed, I will throw you off the Empire State Building
Soon after that, we have gotten certain requests from wacky ones that ask to make menu-background free to upvoted one such as the "Dynamic backgrounds for the osu! main menu-background" which was requested by DaddyCoolVipper as well as "Random background distribution" which was requested by Melody-san.
I for one agree with Melody-san request seeing it did came close to my request, but I'm against DCV's request seeing it...
- Ruins one of the points of donating to osu! (Even though you are suppose to donate for being supportive)
- Files in song can be modified and be switched by players to their choosing.
My idea is somewhat similar to Melody-san and is only applied to supporters only! Sorry creams
As the subject says, I wish for the support of multiple backgrounds to be added in the game. I find that we have multiple skinners that try to make their skin the best in the skinning sub-board, but sadly when adding a menu-background to their creation for supporter appeal, they can't pick over several good ones or even an issue in which the osu! cookie is blocking the character on the background. I already know peppy is entirely strict with the editation of the osu! cookie so why not the reason for adding multiple background for both the player's enjoyment as well as keeping the main developer's awe of his own creation.
How will it work?
menu-background-0.jpg, menu-background-1.jpg, menu-background-2.jpg, menu-background-3.jpg , menu-background-4.jpgdeadbeat actually gave me the idea of multiple menu- backgrounds files such as what is used to make animated back buttons that are used in multiple skins. I hoping this would go and work the same way.
I want to believe that peppy can go this way with this seeing from all the feedback I gotten from Drafura

Just say screw everything I said in the old suggestions and make it change each time when we go back to the menu from multi-player or the solo song selection.
First Suggestion wrote:
By giving another purpose to the skin.ini and by adding a certain code into it in which osu! will notice that can make the menu-background timing of each different and customizable for all users! An example I could say would be like this code.setbackgroundchange=300 --- 30 seconds till next background for each one.Maybe we can use milliseconds as measure of change between backgrounds.
Second Suggestion wrote:
Letting peppy do the work and making the change between multiple menu-backgrounds go by 30 to 60 seconds. Still like the first suggestion seeing I don't want to make peppy work harder into the code of the game itself. (If something actually breaks that is..)
I am wishing for a lot of feedback from skinners and players alike. Anything you want me to tweak in this post, please tell me. I just want this to be an addition to the game itself.
Oh and you may want to check out Fr33z3R & Nath idea's of adjusting cookie opacity on the osu!cookie. May work side by side with this.
