About
opsu! is an unofficial osu! client written in Java using Slick2D and LWJGL, wrappers around the OpenGL and OpenAL libraries. The only requirement to run opsu! is a Java Runtime Environment (JRE), so it's cross-platform compatible (tested on Windows, OS X, and Ubuntu). fluddokt has also ported the project to LibGDX, so opsu! will also run on Android (and theoretically iOS, but that's untested). More details can be found on the opsu! web page or the GitHub readme page.

Running
If you've installed osu! in the default program folder, opsu! will run from anywhere: just execute opsu-{version}.jar and you're set. Otherwise, you can either set the paths manually in the configuration file (.opsu.cfg, generated when the program starts) or run opsu! from the working directory. There's a built-in beatmap downloader, and any OSZ archives placed in the SongPacks directory will be automatically unpacked.

Game options can be accessed by clicking the "Other Options" button in the song menu. You'll likely need to change the "Music Offset" value if hit objects are out of sync (this might involve a bit of playing around -- it's a known issue, sorry!).

Project Goals & Contributing
Update: This project has reached a relatively stable point, thanks to all the user contributions I've received -- please keep sending them in! If you have any interest in the project, feel free to contact me by opening an Issue on GitHub, and I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Credits
The majority of images included in opsu! are taken from user-released skins, and their names are listed in the credits file in the repository. I also referenced the Wojtkosu and osu! web projects when writing portions of the code. fluddokt also contributed significantly to the project. Lastly, I want to thank peppy for allowing me to share this here.

Pretty amazing work! A lot more polished than I expected for a first release. Some issues that stood out the most!

- The cursor looks kinda sloppy, like someone drew a halfhearted circle in MS Paint. Perhaps grab one from an existing skin?
- Are hitsounds implemented? It's pretty jarring to play without the instant feedback they provide
- The bursts are really distracting -- they look just like approach circles, and stay on the screen for far too long, cluttering it up imo

In terms of directions to take this project: instead of aiming for feature parity with osu!, perhaps aim to fill in the niches? That is to say, experimental features that the current dev team isn't interested in exploring. For example, a hold slider, or a global approach rate? A good source (well, more like a firehose) of suggestions would be from the Feature Requests forum.

Anyways, I'm excited to see where this project goes! Java is near and dear to my heart; I might be interested in contributing when I find the time :)

Thanks for the feedback!
  1. Hardware cursors seemed really buggy in Slick2D when I tried earlier, but I'll give it another shot when I have time.
  2. I personally never played using hitsounds, so that was at the bottom of my to-do list XD. It's the next thing I'll look at, so I'll hopefully have those implemented soon.
  3. You can disable the (lighting) bursts in the options, or swap them out with something else in the jar. I'm hoping to eventually support skinning (at least partially), but there's no way to override the default resources yet without physically replacing them in the jar (which isn't hard to do, but annoying).


Also, feel free to create issues in the repository; it'll be easier to stay organized that way.

Hmm, I can't seem to be able to open the .jar at all. Nothing pops up when I try to open it (though the .cfg and .log are created). I don't think it's Java because OsuStreamSpeed.jar works fine for me. Windows 7 here if that matters.

Is there any error message in the log? (This is a total guess, but if you're running Java 6, the supplied jar won't run since it's built using JDK 7.)

@FieryLight
Ah, okay. x_x That's an error with the parser; seems like someone mapped a floating point value for OverallDifficulty, which is documented as an integer (so osu! either supports floats or rounds them... it didn't come up in my ~1000 local maps). I'll push a fix for that soon. For now, if you just want to try the app, change the songs directory in the configuration file and copy a couple of maps into that new location. Sorry for the inconvenience.

@marcostudios
Honestly, I'm not sure why that happens--perhaps someone who's worked with Java's class loader can say more about it. All the machines I've tested on seemed to read resources within the jar... maybe you can try extracting all the images (.png and .jpg) from the root of the jar, which is messy but should definitely work.
Marcin
Float support was added in v13 version of .osu file.

Thanks for the info. That's for all difficulty fields, then?

I forgot to say this happens when i insert opu.jar in my osu! folder but when it has his folder outside osu! it works

this. is. gold.

Oh wow, it just works! Great start!

Hope to see more features in the future :D

hm, saw now that track loading at the beginning really takes a lot of time, expecially for some marathon songs, and that's a pain. Also, played a bit with the files into the jar with winrar to make some sort of similiar to my skin, and also played some maps, I have to say a few things:
- Would be great to have a more effecient "slider loader". That's just a little note. Because I noticed that some sliders go really crazy with the velocity.
- The cursor is rendered pretty badly. From what I saw, it's rendered by changing the cursor of the machine with the cursor in the jar file. Please avoid that. Instead try making an image under the cursor, the cursor of the machine not displayed on the window of opsu! so the cursor can be displayed more well. Of course, this is just a suggestion, If this isn't possible in java, don't mind this point :P

Also can you do like killing a second opsu if wrongly opened? my ram was full because of that :<

I implemented sound effects today, and also limited the program to a single instance. You'll need an accurate Music Offset for the hit sounds to be in sync. I'm currently experimenting with cursors, and will probably push an update tomorrow.

Wow, this is very impressive, indeed.
ErunamoJAZZ
oh nice... but need a lot of work, :P

Heh pretty cool, nice work :P
The menu sprites are pretty sexy!

not quite on topic but
peppy was planning to open-source osu!?
Marcin
Yes, peppy is planning on open sourcing osu!.
Howl
inb4 so this is useless, right?
Marcin
Why would it be, its great opportunity to learn programming for person making it. Also open sourcing osu! is gonna take long time so...

I agree! :3

When I double clicked it it created the two files. But nothing else happens.
My game is installed in the normal directory, here is a screenshot of the 2 files if it helps.
I am probably doing something wrong.

I agree too, I was just thinking what Sieg could probably answer after having someone confirming that osu! was going to be open source.

My mistake, I shouldn't have assumed that there'd be no mistakes in the *.osu files. Here's a quick fix: http://www.mediafire.com/download/bjirg ... 12b83a.jar (812b83a)

If anyone has specific unofficial features they'd like to see, please post them!

Any error? How much time have you waited since opening it?

It takes about 1 hour to load (with no indication it is loading besides the process and the hard drive activity) with ~85,000 beatmaps, and when closing the client and opening it again it takes another hour (loads everything again). Can it use a database so it doesn't have to load all maps at the beginning?

I forgot to edit my post and update java :p . It's already fixed

opsu works fine , It opens inmediately o:

Are any files created? If so, are any errors generated in the log? Glad it works. Also, I love your skin. :3

Interesting. I only have around 1000 beatmaps on my computer, but the parser takes consistently less than 1 second to finish for me. Admittedly, the parser isn't implemented very efficiently, but an hour is really terrible -- maybe the JVM is slowing it down, but that's a guess. I don't really think I should be looking into databases at the moment, since it'd sidetrack me too much (and correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think too many others are experiencing this issue). I'll try to keep this issue in mind, but I can't offer any immediate solution (other than just pointing the song path elsewhere). x.x

Is anyone else getting grossly long loading times? (And for how many maps?)

Wait so, since this is now open source, what kinds of things we can do with osu? Or what will people be making or doing with it?

I downloaded the quick fix, but it still does nothing. I am using win 8.1 64 bit.

New Release: v0.2.1

Features:
  1. New "Game Options" screen divided into tabs.
  2. New options: hitsound volume, dim level, hide perfect hits, override song background.
  3. Visual tweaks: score animation, reverse arrow rotations, additional "Auto" mod images.

Fixes:
  1. Game not loading OsuFile for maps in a song group. (critical, since v0.2.0)
  2. Additional parser checks for invalid lines.

The same error, or a new one? The patch fixed the error in the logs, so you shouldn't be experiencing the same issue.

This is an unofficial version; you'll have to wait longer for osu!'s source to be released.

I get this http://pastebin.com/q1aBRSg4

I updated java to Version 7 Update 60 . And this is as of the newest release up here ^
