3rd beatmap created. 1st beatmap submitted + ranked.

July 14th, 2010: RANKED. Thank you everyone who helped me!

Modders, if you could please check the following?
BPM (especially during the changes, I tried to do my best but ...), sprites (size, looks funny, etc.), along with normal mod stuff. Thanks!

Look! It's pending now, no longer a work in progress! Hope I'm doing this right ... XD OH SNAP I GOT A BUBBLE. WTF?!

ADDITIONAL INFO:
This song was used in the figure skating exhibition gala during the Olympics by Takahashi Daisuke of Japan. He came in third in his event, winning a bronze medal

June 15th, 2010: Initial submission
June 16th: Deleted some files, changed spacing (mostly Bronze, some Silver), deleted some breaks and mapped that
June 17th: Fixed timing, resnapped, tweaked a few notes here and there (spacing, etc.), added notes in some random empty spots
June 18th: Some more minor adjustments, mainly spacing, combos, etc.
June 19th: Added some hitsounds, fixed spacing and added some new combos (a few notes / sliders as well). Changed hit circle overlay, please tell me if it looks bad (I know it does, actually, should I change colours? Maybe just get rid of it?)
June 20th: Added more hitsounds, changed combo, deleted some sprites, re - designed some of Gold
June 21st: Fixed timing, re - designed some more of Gold
June 25th: Added hitsounds to all difficulties. Submitted into pending ... Fixed spacing errors
June 27th: Deleted some files, fixed slight spacing / timing errors. Changed audio file
June 28th: Made some minor changes (colours, files, hitsounds, etc.), mapped over first break in Bronze and Silver
June 30th: Fixed lots of spacing, mapped over break in Silver and added some more notes, changed offset + re - snapped, played with volume settings, changed some preferences, new timing at the end
July 1st (Happy Canada Day!): Changed a few combos, added some hitsounds
July 2nd: More spacing and hitsound fixes
July 4th: Added tags, changed background colours, spacing, mapped over first break in Gold
July 5th: Changed some sprites, fixed timing and offset, volume changes, design and spacing errors
July 7th: Fixed timing sessions for volume changes
July 11th: FINALLY FIXED SPRITES. Sorry for the delay

Oh yeah I'm not a timing expert

Beautiful song, but the .osz is big.

  1. Delete the .osb.
  2. Delete cover.png and brightcover1.png.
  3. Delete star.png, it isn't used in gameplay.


Bronze
Lots of awkwards breaks.
00:30:339 (3,4) - Spacing.
00:33:182 (3) - Spacing.
00:52:445 (3) - Move 1/2 back, fix spacing.
00:57:182 (3) - ^


You know what, just use Distance Snap for all of it, all difficulties. Once you've done that, PM me (preferably in-game) to mod properly (and probably star, due to skin and song choice)

You are amazing. I can't believe you timed all that. Thanks so much, it's way more precise now :D
Time the end if you want to, but don't feel you have to, haha

Silver;

Hi.

Awesome BG.I'd give 10/10 only for it.

[General]
553,6 299,12 021 and etc. - What's all these timing points with different offsets and BPMs for? Delete them.They're unused.

[Bronze]
00:34:508 (1) - Use distance snap and fix the spacing,too far for easy imo.
01:42:395 (5) - What's with this circle? Fix spacing.
01:58:183 (3) - New combo.
02:12:708 (5) - Fix spacing,put in the same place.You don't need to make any distance between them.Stack Leniency will do it automatically during gameplay.
02:23:128 (1,2,3,4) - You better mirror them all.Copy the correct one,and then do a Horizontally or Vertically Flip.
02:52:177 (9) - New combo?
03:54:916 (3) - Add a finish?

[Silver]
00:52:190 - Start slider from here,or at least add a circle.
00:57:242 - ^
01:42:395 (8) - Well,I was speaking about this above.
01:45:869 (4) - New combo.
02:12:708 (8) - Again this sfuff.

[Gold]
00:37:034 (1,2,3,4,5) - 1 grid left and down for all of them?
01:42:395 (5) - Oh well..
02:12:708 (8) - ^

So cute map and music.I felt in love with it.Good luck,have a star~

You'd better to include 'hitcircleoverlay.png'. or it will be mixed with other skin(use full submission)
Try to keep osz file under 10MB. compress mp3 to 160kbps(don't reach 10mb is better i think..)
kill '.osb'file. it isn't used
Sugestion : 0~00:47:138 add clap to all second white tick form tall white tick(3/4 beat, ex:00:30:719 (4) )
00:49:664~03:31:331 add clap to all 2/4,4/4 beat
03:54:916 (T) - fix to 03:54:930

Bronze
00:31:350 (5,1,2) - too close 1 gird down
00:35:455 (3,4,5) - ^
oh, there are too many place like this, use distance snap plz
00:35:771 (4) - new combo?
01:06:083 (4) - new combo?
02:29:443 (3) - new combo?
03:51:539 (1) - add finish
03:54:916 (3) - remove finish? song is too quite here to use finish. or you can turn down hit sound volume

Silver
also use distance snap plz (use staionally spacing for part)

Gold
Don't use distance spacing except 1.0x if you are not going to make jump.
you can increase slider velocity to increase spacing,
only use non 1.0x spacing where you want make jump


Good song.. i hope osu have more ranked songs like this.. good luck

I suggest you to strengthen the sound in some louder section a bit, otherwise it's too long and make it boring.

Nice skin
You can get rid of default-comma.png, default-dot.png, default-percent.png and default-x.png, They aren't used. Also get rid of the osb, there's no storyboard.
You need an approachcircle, just put the default in the folder.

There are a lot of breaks, and some are really short. Maybe map over some of them?

03:54:930 (3) - New combo?

03:43:961 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,1,2,3,4,1,2) - This is really cluttered and hard to read. Maybe space it out more?
03:54:916 (9) - New Combo?

Great song and awesome map.

As per your request:

[General]
A quick thought for hit sounds: When you hear the high snare hit, try adding claps. Essentially beats 2 and 4. Try to just accentuate the music with the hit sounds instead of making your own rhythms at first.
Also, maybe when you hear those cymbals riding up to a climax, add a soft finish at the apex.

You have two very similar combo colors consecutively. Put the number 4 green where color 3 is.

You have all your timing points set to Custom 1, but there are no custom sounds in your folder. :?

The skin is sexy.

The first break feels waay too early (it's only 20 seconds in for silver and bronze. :/)

[Bronze]
01:08:609 (4) - I wouldn't recommend you have something like this where the player will most probably be confused as to when the slider will end to hit the next beat. Maybe use a long slider instead?
02:07:024 (3,4) - I dunno about this in the easiest difficulty...
02:31:337 (2,4) - These also... might be better as long sliders instead.
03:12:386 (4) - ^

[Silver]
Your combos run kind of long for this type of song/difficulty. It's kind of hard to get health back once you've lost it. Try shortening them in choice spots.
Otherwise, this is a nice difficulty.

[Gold]
Lower hp drain by 1
I was kind of disappointed with the general design of this map. It has a lot of straight up/down left/right 90 degree turn stuff that really removes a lot of the fluid movements that feel the most natural in this game. It also just doesn't feel quite right for this particular type of song that moves and flows in a constant motion instead of taking very precise and sharp turns. It's up to you if you want to redo those parts, though. The kiai section to the end shines against the hard lines of the previous stuff though.
The map itself is fine, though.

Nice map set. Really like the skin too - it fits nicely.

For Bronze it was mostly like this for the difficulty factor, and I changed it in Silver (it's looser there), and I was debating whether I should do it with Gold as well. I think I'll leave the beginning as is and change it where it started changing in Silver

Hit F6. There will be a list of all of your timing sections (green lines on the time line). All of the times will have a :C1 after them. That indicates that you're using the custom hit sound set (number 1 of 2). When you're using this toggle, the program will look for custom hit sound files in your song folder to use instead of the default hit sound set. Since you don't have any of those files in your song folder, you may as well turn them off. An easy way to do that is to click on the top of the list, hold down shift, then click on the bottom of the list. Then click on the middle tab, and uncheck the Custom Hit Sounds 1 box. That should apply to all of the sections that are selected without messing with your volume settings.

Hai, here's my mod~

[Overall]
This song is a bit on the long side to get ranked. Anyway you could possibly trim it down?
Can you tell me what the point of the non-inherited timing section at 03:54:934 is for? I believe you could just change it to an inherited timing section and replace the note like that.
You can remove your first timing section since you have the second timing section that everything starts at.
With that being said, I believe you now have only one non-inherited timing section.
I'm not too fond of how you use Kiai time at the end for only one hit object.

[Bronze]
Fine~

[Silver]
01:08:609 (4) - I kinda want to say that this is too many rebounds for some players.
I just realized that there's alot of sliders like that, so I'm not gonna point them out.
