Storyboard - Mortem
life is full of disapointment, lies and fake people. you keep opening your heart to those, who tells you, that they are your friends but in the end, they betray you and throw you away like an old dirty rag. but one day, when you'll come through all the depression and sadness, there will be someone, who will understand you. who will like you as you are and those type of friends are way more better than one thousand fake ones.

this map is dedicated to all my true friends, who didn't help me only in osu! community but also in real life. thank you for having you as a trustful friends. c:

Dík moc. c:
Hi for the M4M :V


01:32:521 - For this section with the F key hitsound I would suggest lowering the volume of that hitsound slightly (maybe by about 15-20% on audacity) because right now it's overshadowing the lead piano sounds (melody) which doesn't make it sound as great. Same for the similar section on 02:34:241 -.


02:23:097 (5,6,7) - Could probably be spaced a bit more roundly to have more of a circular flow. also the distance between 7 and 1 is too short so this could help fix that.

Other than that no issues.


Consider OD5.5 maybe even OD6 here. Kind of like a hard but with more straightforward patterns so it could definitely be useful for challenging newer players to learn to acc and rewarding them more for a good FC :)

01:03:947 (6,7) - Could be unstacked much like the previous patterns but this isn't really major.

01:12:519 (2,3) - Ctrl G this so the slider is first then move the note to the slider end. Currently the pattern plays pretty...meh. Like slider 1 is a 1/2 slider and then you have a note and a slider on the red tick. This is fine but if you listen to the music it's 5 piano notes and if you had it the way I mentioned it would be slider slider note so you would be single tapping 1/1 technically which feels better than single tapping 2 and then random 1/2 tap and hold. This change also doesn't require any pattern reworks so I think it's worth it :3

01:45:665 (4) - Works better stacked over 01:45:093 (3) - slider end. This helps to differentiate the upcoming triple since it's both a different piano note and it looks much better than spacing out the triple instead.

Honestly diff is pretty solid. Patterns are friendly consistent with the song, spacing is consistent, a few missed blanket opportunities but that's minor and unimportant (unless you care about that stuff :v so) Good job! Shooting a star since I couldn't find much and its a nice song :v

Good luck! :)

@Side - Thank you for mod. Fixed some things you mentioned.
M4M request

  1. Combo colors 1 and 5 can be difficult to see in some places. I recommend tweaking them to be more noticeable.

  2. I recommend renaming Advanced to anything related to the song. The name "advanced" is too convoluted and it might bring unnecessary confusion.

  1. 00:58:267 - The transition to the colored BG should not be sudden. These type of transitions can hurt the song's appearance. I recommend the transition should start around 00:51:374 so it would start more slowly and less distracting.
  2. 01:32:664 - Similar to above, the transition should not be distracting. This time the transition should start around 01:15:376 .
  3. 01:59:952 - Similar to above, but this time it should start around 01:56:523 .
  4. 02:34:384 - Similar to above, but this time it should start around 02:13:667 .
  5. 02:47:956 - It is strange yet disappointing to see strobe effects on these type of maps. Not only is it so late into the song, it is too sudden and overwhelming; it hurts the experience from the song. I highly recommend removing the strobe effects. If not, reduce the amount of strobe effects and change them so they fade more slowly. I think maps like this should not have an epilepsy warning in the first place.
  6. 02:47:814 - The light particles are also overwhelming. Instead of having all of them appear during kiai time, the first light particles should appear around 02:35:955 . The light particles then should gradually increase in numbers until it hits kiai time. I think this make an interesting visual build-up to the kiai time.

The SB is mostly minimal until the last part of the map. I think the strobe effects are unnecessary and should be removed from the map. The SB should enhance the map, not hurt it.

  1. 00:54:803 (1) - There are 2 more sliders of this type, one at 00:57:374 (5) and 02:50:814 (6) . If you rarely use linear sliders, why bother? I recommend replacing them.
  2. 01:32:521 - The slider velocity meter is too slow. Increase all values of x0.75 to x0.85 so newer players can adjust more smoothly to the pacing of the diff.
    In addition to above, why is the beginning of the diff not slow?
  3. 01:42:807 (1) - Adjust the slider so the red waypoint is directly above the tickmark(s), similar to 01:39:378 (1) .
  4. 02:41:099 (1) - ^
  5. 02:44:528 (1) - ^
  6. 03:15:530 (1) - The finishing hitsound felt very out of place, especially when there's nothing going on in the song. I recommend replacing it.

The biggest problem with Advanced is the slow slider velocity. Other than that, the diff needs general polish.

  1. 01:35:950 (1) - Similar to what I said in Advanced, adjust the slider so the red waypoints is directly above the tickmark(s).
  2. 02:13:667 (1) - Flip this slider vertically.
  3. 02:23:668 (9,1) - No jump this time?
  4. 02:37:670 (1) - Similar to what I said, adjust the slider so the red waypoints is directly above the tickmark(s).
  5. 02:41:099 (1) - ^
  6. 02:44:528 (1) - ^
  7. 03:03:101 (3,1) - A jump here?
  8. (Optional) 03:08:244 (3,4,1) - ^
  9. (Optional) 03:11:673 (3,4,1) - ^
  10. 03:13:959 (2,3,4) - ^
  11. 03:15:530 (1) - Again the finishing hitsounds feels very out of place. I recommend replacing it.

Not much problems here. Nothing noteworthy about the diff either, but that's okay. Again, the diff needs general polish.

Other than fixing the storyboard, adjusting the pacing on Advanced, and adding general polish, the map is looking good. I think it deserves a star.

EDIT: Apparently all my stars somehow added to your map. This happened before. This is getting ridiculous.
00:44:373 (8) - look, this sound destination not 00:44:373, it's 00:44:326 - that's must be on the 1/3. try to replace 7 and 8 to slider
00:46:088 (5) - and here too ^
01:13:662 (4,5) - add DS here, I think, it would be better to emphasize strong beat
01:45:951 (5,6,7) - it's hard to read triplet, that's stands on the previous object, try to move it, or change it to reverse slider, also, place NC at 7
02:10:239 (1,3) - stack it better
03:15:102 (6,7,8) - this objects must be placed little earlier, just listen. Also, NC at 8

01:03:375 (2) - what about Crtl-H ?
03:15:102 - as I said above. Idk what to here, soz.

Good luck with your rank c:

03:43 ByBy13: okay
03:43 ByBy13: let's bubble it

That was fast LOL
We fixed storyboard (wrong resolutions, uncut transparency, objects rendering out of screen)
Then we fixed some hitsounds issues (length and delay) and removed one unused file.

Cannot send log, because we mixed it with regular chatting and it was in Czech anyway.
We had some discussion about timing and fixed it with Sieg. Then we fixed problems related to timing like duplicate lines, wrong snapping etc.
There are some unsnapped inherited timing points but these are okay because they are not kiai and do not afflict gameplay in any way. Also way too loud volume was fixed.

I want ByBy to recheck and rebubble the map, because kind of major things were changed.

Well I guess it's too late for me to mod it. Call me for anything then.
