Doesn't seem like anyone knows of this one: options-background.png


The image I used is 1100x780, and I can't be bothered to find the exact size...

well... if you mean the droplets between the fruits, it is called fruit-drop.png. it comes along with fruit-drop-overlay.png (if i'm correct...) for a stylish look...


but if you mean something else, then i don't know...
Don-Tan
yeah thx that was what i meant XD

What point in the image do you cut off the top so the image won't overlap the black bar on top?
Don-Tan
you have to include the black bar on the top cause if you don't add the black bar osu goes LSD XD

options-background.png example without the black bar on the top:

i hope this could answer your question :)

you can exclude the black bar if you take the risk of this "LSD"
if not, then use a black bar

Is the black bar a separate skin element? Or is there a point in your background image where you need to manually cut off and make your own bar?

... No... The bar is part of options-background.png, and it should be around 85 pixels high.

Ehh... I was hoping for someone to explain this instead of me... but I see I must do this.
So let's begin.

1. So "options-background.png" doesn't have constant size like spinner-background or anything else in gameplay. What I mean? That you must remember about people that use different aspect ratio : 16:9, 4:3, 16:10 etc.
So if you are going to add it to skin and release, remember to add different sizes of this for different people.

2. Simple example how it's look for me as I'm using 4:3 (1280x960).

3. "But the tabs looks bad!" - Don't worry, these tabs are 83px lower than top of the picture.


4. So let me show you quick example how could it look if you want edit it.


So basically you should use size 1024x768 or 1024x600 but this is up to you.

Don't make it transparent because things will mess up!

any size is legit enough for a basic design... even it is 16:9, 4:3, 16:10 blah, blah, blah... (i used a 1366x768 options-background)


but for images, one size is no good

EDIT: thank you, MLGnom for a wonderful explanation... :)

Create new image file in size that you use, save it as options-background.png and add it to your skin.

Have you tested it on something different that your pattern? Because you won't see the problem with simple pattern.
I need to waste time to explain you this geez...
Yes I know it's work for basic patterns. But people need to know if they are going to use for example a picture...

Dark_Ai
