hi, i know that this may be a stupid question, but i can't seem to find a solution anywhere.

i'm creating a skin by making small changes to the Seouless used by shigetora on twitch and when trying to change the background of the spinner i cannot manage to fit the backgroung, which has an outer glow, with the spinner meter, that contains the image i want to show when spinning.

https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/11534383 <-- this is what i'm talking about

then i noticed that the images used in the original use different resolutions and the spinner metre is always cut by few pixel.

i'm new to skinning but i hope you can help

Dont put it in your skin folder. You need to open it with osu

How does one get the difficulty stars to work more as a bar instead of getting smaller? I find the scaled version very difficult to read, but when I change the version of the skin, nothing changes about the difficulty stars.

The version of skin.ini must be 2.1 or lower.

If you want dots you need to remove default-0 till default-9 (and the @2x versions if they exist) from your current skin and then you just drop the default- images from a skin in that has dots. Then you just need to copy the value of HitCircleOverlap from the skin.ini from the skin you took the dots from and put it into the skin.ini of the skin you're using.

If you want blank circles just go to the skin.ini of your skin and put
HitCirclePrefix: Something
under [Fonts]

Hey just got a skin but I want to tinker with it and adjust it to my liking, the thing is that I want the circles and numbers after I click to fade away quick, but for some reason one of the skins I got has a weird option set up as I click the circle will fade away faster than the number which is kinda distracting and messing up with my reading ability.

So, i have a 3440x1440 monitor and Osu works beautifully, but obviously nobody makes skins for 21:9 (at least not that i can find).

The skins i use mostly work, but there are a few that are my favorites, but some elements are off, mainly any parts of the Skin that cover the big OSU button on the Map Selection screen in the bottom right.

Is there a way to manually move this so it covers the button like its intended to?

Spoiler box as image is big.


Another question is how to remove the Boxed area on some skins, as on 21:9 its not centered and very distracting, and some skins don't come with optional elements to replace them to get rid of em.

Could be kinda hard to move it on this particular one, but it shouldn't be a problem in general. You would just need to edit selection-mode or selection-options.

You need to edit scorebar-bg

Are we allowed to copy such stuff as hitcircle.png or taikobigcircle.png?
They are literally just white colors.

No, unless the elements are too simple and can be debated if it counts as mixing or not. Though I would recommend you do not copy them regardless of their simplicity.

Yes, they are too simple. Literally white color circle.

I have a skin that I allow people to freely fork (if character images are replaced)
But given the new subforum rule that does not allow mixed skin even if having aurhor's permission (me). In this case, can I allow people to host forks of my skin in my skin thread?

Hmm, that is a good question. It should be fine, eventho no one probably would read the comments, which is why you may just wanna add a spoilerbox with versions other people made in the OP. (but please checj then if those are entirely made out of your elements and don't steal some from other skins)
