The latest update to osu made it a lot bouncier, among many other fancy things, but there was also an exciting change to osu!mania scroll speeds. It's a simple change to allow you to use the same scroll speed for more songs. And before you start worrying, no, it doesn't kill SV or BPM changes. Here's a quick overview of the change, why it was necessary, and how you can make best use of it.

You can enable a new behaviour from options:



Mania scroll speed (the thing you change with F3/F4) has always had some major flaws. Without going into too much detail, the fact that this new change alone addresses about 10 feature requests is enough to show that this change was warranted. The full list:
t/233853: More precise speed setting in Mania (+Edit)
t/227393: .5 Scroll speed for mania
t/221859: 2 New (Unranked) mods for Osu!Mania: SV Mod
t/216614: Scale osu!mania scroll speed setting by primary BPM of songs
t/212641: Smaller scroll speed increments
t/199967: Osu mania Automatic Speed Controller
t/136214: [osu!mania] Custom Speed per BPM
t/103251: Osu!Mania Approach Rate (Fall Speed) Formula Change
t/100764: osu!mania note fall speed


Here's how it works: scroll speeds can now be set to no longer scale to the primary BPM of the song you're playing. This will allow you to use the same scroll speed for a 100BPM song and a 200BPM song, and have the notes travel at the same speed. Because we're only basing the scroll speed around one primary BPM, SV changes and BPM still work the same.

By default, osu now uses a single, global scroll speed for every song. There is an option (under the gameplay section of Options) to get back the old behaviour of saving your scroll speed for each individual beatmap.

That's about it! Enjoy the new system, and feel free to leave any feedback on it in this thread.

I don't understand your problem. All this option does is stores the scroll speed you use for a beatmap when you play it. Then the next time you play the same beatmap, the game will use the stored scroll speed for that beatmap. It's working as intended.
