Colours are in Progress.
luro has very kindly attempted to recolour everything other than pink and green, and he seems to have done enough for them to be functional at a basic level.

Do note that his personal preferences have been put in, so you will see some element differences between colours, e.g. mods and spinner.

To get the best, official experience, download only marked colours (filled or dotted).These have been patched by me or with me to ensure the highest quality.

Work is ongoing, striving towards comleting Red and getting Orange out for beta.

  • Hello World!

    Misc Small fixes and requests by the public added


23 APR 2017 [b23-4]
This is a fairly stable developer update for feedback purposes, I haven't fixed much problems that the community have found yet and some may still persist, the setup and preferences folder may not work as fluently too, but it's stable enough to use as a proper skin so should be all G.
  • New Menu Sounds (some not yet present)
    New, animated hitbursts
    Score, Song Pie and Accuracy are now dimmed during gameplay to increase focus on gameplay.
    Target and ScoreV2 mods added.
    Made the setup warning more annoying so that your skin works properly. ;p
    Ranking Screen Touchup
    Combo colours changed to more vibrant colours. Unsure about this change
    Various elements darkened for better visibility with less background dim

    Misc Small fixes and requests by the public added

  • NIGHTGATE GREEN FINISHED!
    This is a proofread build, where we scan for bugs. If there are any, I'll list them down and fix them. If not, i'll finish up this colour and make the other colours. plz help :)

    many requested prefs added, main ones are:
    minimal spinner
    follow circle / slider balls
    gameplay perimeter
    and more

    Some sounds have been shortened by default, but I left some long ones in.

    If you want completley short sounds, head to prefs.



16 JUN 2018 [PINK b21-6]
  • NIGHTGATE PINK IN TESTING STAGE!
    Pink has now been fully patched. Well, at least to my knowledge

    Please download and check it for errors. I'll be working on blue next! (not cyan)

    umm... why do I always HAPPEN to release on the 21 of july?? strange...


9 JUL 2018 [PINK b9-7]
  • NIGHTGATE PINK FEEDBACK IMPLEMENTED
    - added option for pink only combo colours
    - Fixed mania combo tinting

    Additional Fixes:
    - More refined line above the scoreboard at song select, now more 'pink' instead of white, and sharper too
    - Refined buttons have a dark shade to them to enhance their visibility with lighter backgrounds
    - A better menu background added.
    - Multi elements refined. Better multi-skip and ranking-winner frame.
    - Fixed a preferences error where the numbered option had a space after the name.


1 OCT 2018 [PINK v1]
  • NIGHTGATE PINK COMPLETE
    Small Fixes:
    - Buttons have darker backgrounds
    - Multi elements touched up (multi-skipped and multi-winner)
    - More kawaii combo colours for pink lovers

    I need to implement these changes to GREEN.


6 OCT 2018 [PINK v1]
  • PINK - Small Fixes
    Small Fixes:
    - Refine top bar in song select.

    I still need to implement these changes to GREEN.


6 OCT 2018 [RED b6-10]
  • NIGHTGATE RED BETA NOW OUT
    Come test out Nightgate in RED! Very kindly patched by the amazing DaPrimeAtce.
    We need to figure out the preferences, as most of them disappeared for some reason. But otherwise, the main skin seems all good to my eyes.

    If you see any issues, please report them with the version details seen in the mode select panel.


10 OCT 2018 [RED b10-10]
  • Not much has changed, but I've merged my new multi designs and new menu buttons. Also fixed the info panel (ish, date says 8 not 10 because thats when I did them, and it's such a tedious task to fix so I'm not gonna do it for a silly 8.)

    If you see any issues, please report them with the version details seen in the mode select panel.


27 OCT 2018 [RED b27-10]
  • Added Preferences Folder.
    Fixed a few bugs.

    This release seems pretty complete, so let me know if there are any bugs!


4 DEC 2018 [CYN b4-12]
  • NIGHTGATE CYAN BETA NOW OUT
    Come test out Nightgate in CYAN! Very kindly patched by the amazing DaPrimeAtce.
    I hope I didn't miss any bugs or files.
    If you see any issues, please report them with the version details seen in the mode select panel.


4 DEC 2018 [RED b4-12]
  • Sorry for the two month wait...
    Misplaced Green Minimal Spinner Element fixed
    Patched in small design changes (More Readable menu buttons, Multiplayer Refinements)
    If there are no other issues for the next month, RED will be finalised and marked as finished.


5 DEC 2018 [YLW b5-12]
  • aaaand yellow is out... DaPrimeAtce is really on the roll with his help!
    As usual, if you see any issues, please report them with the version details seen in the mode select panel.


8 DEC 2018 [CRM b5-12]

  • Have some Vanilla. I'm sorry if you where looking for white... (it was never part of the plan)

    The reason it's cream and not white is to make the cursor and cursor-movement elements stand out. In this skin, white stands for things that relate to your cursor. If the whole skin is white, you cannot relate white to cursor movements.

    It's kind of like: White = the path you are meant to take.
    Everything you see in this skin, including weird design choices like a massive spinner, combo colours and cream colour is designed to enhance readability of osu to optimise your human vision.


12 DEC 2018 [BLU b12-12]

  • Got blue done. I heard this is a long awaited one, so I hope it's good enough.

    I'm very unsure about the combocolours and the deepness of the blue in general. Although it seems a little dark to see, I actually did better when playing compared to white. I think it's because the cursor and the white cursor elements stand out really well...

    If they really don't work out then maybe as a last priority i'll recolour it a little lighter and add refinements.

    I'd also like to note that I haven't really tested the new colours a heap because my main goal here is to just get them DONE. I have a massive stack of homework to do so i thought i'd blast through this to clear my mind a little. Maybe when I get that work done I'll come back and refine, but main goal right now is to get the colours usable and bug free. (not nessesarily ultra-refined.)


13 DEC 2018 [RED b13-12]

  • A Nightgate Red bugfix.

    - CTB colors in skin.ini are green - fixed
    - Redone combo colours. This time I actually tested them. Ended up with the ones you see when you update (pink, yellow, cyan, purple). (orange, green were removed from the cycle as green/red looked horrible, and orange didn't provide enough contrast with the red, making the approach circles blend in)
    - Preferences cursor smoke folder had a redundant folder inside it. Removed.


13 DEC 2018 [CRM b13-12]

  • More bugfixes, this time for cream.

    - Taiko Drum misalignment fixed
    - Version panel doesn't say it's cyan anymore.
    [quote="Matt2e2”]
    - scorebar-colour is not aligned with scorebar-bg (this is by design)
    - Fade In's canvas gets in the way of Sudden Death, which may cause inconvenieces for mania players (I can't fix this due to the way that image works, and it hasn't been an issue for the last two years anyway.[/quote]


13 DEC 2018 [ORN b13-12]
  • NIGHTGATE ORANGE just out
    Just the usual... Report any issues so I can fix them.

    DaPrimeAtce did this one ;)


14 DEC 2018 [PPL b14-12]
  • Aand I pulled an all-nighter to bring you Nightgate Purple.
    I've lightened the colour a bit for this one as the one that was planned was a bit too dark to read, and didn't work very well with the brighter combo colours.

    As usual, reply if you find any bugs. I'll be facing my massive stack of homework now so I'll probably do the bug fixes over weekends or if I need a brain break.
    I am desperate for time now though, so maybe I'll focus really hard on that stack of homework and pause the skinning for now instead. Maybe I can do bug fixes on my upcoming holiday trip (where I can't do homework).
This is a fan made skin BASED ON and NOT ENTIRELY the same as the game Nightgate. I don't claim the main concept as mine.

MANY MINIMALIST PRO DESIGNS ARE SIMILAR. THiS SKIN DID NOT COPY ANY OTHER SKINS.

Since my time is limited, and i seriously need to focus on my other projects, You'll need to vote for the mania mode to be skinned. This is a new system that i thought of, and it delays skinning so that i can focus on my other projects. Sorry if this is an inconvenience, but if the votes hit the target number i'll skin it
