My combobursts aren't all showing up. osu! loads up to comboburst-8 and then loops back to comboburst-0, when my skin goes comboburst-12

Am I doing something wrong here or...?
Make sure that you haven't made mistake with naming. If you have only up to combobursts-8 then you have a mistake in name of comboburst-9 (if you do, anything after it won't load).
Just make sure you haven't add any additional space in name or made typo somewhere.
Wow you're right I accidentally named my comboburst-9.png as comboburst-9.png.png LOL

Thanks for the tip, haha.

okey :)

note: this overlay is a bit different (bigger), but the same result in the end anyways..



Ah, so this was for HD. @2x always should have double size of normal size part so default hitcircle have 128x128px, @2x MUST have 256x256px. This is a reason why people should also add SD part.
Your parts had 249x249 and 242x242. It was simply too small for slider.
So I have fixed your issue by changing canvas size to 256x256 so should be good now. :3

Thankyou!! :):)

2 Questions if no one minds :3.

1) Can you skin the key overlay?

2) Why is this happening in taiko?

Key overlay... Key overlay... Not sure what do you mean by that (or I'm just still sleepy), can you be a little more precise? Screenshot of element?

Uh, can't really tell without seeing skin by myself, can you post it?
And what resolution you are using?

Just updating one of mine, now the taiko sliders look like that. It doesn't work in any resolution.
The skin I'm working on...

maybe there's a transparent strip on the rightmost side of your taiko-roll-middle.png? I'm just assuming that, I haven't checked and downloaded the skin.

it's inputoverlay-background.png and inputoverlay-key.png

DIMENSIONS BY DEFAULT:

inputoverlay-background.png = 193x55 (Standard), 386x110 (HD Support)
inputoverlay-key = 43x46 (Standard), 86x92 (HD Support)

i see what you did there
taiko-roll-middle.png (in that screenshot) is 50% transparent... why not try using the default taiko-roll-middle.png? 8-)

This is your problem with "taiko-roll-middle@2x.png".
You remembered about size for @2x but you simply forgot to make this thing larger, just duplicate layer and move it to the right.

Btw. Great skin. You are going to release it soon?
If I can suggest you something, fix score numbers a little (overlapping is bad :<). Set in skin.ini "ScoreOverlap: 1" to 0 or even better if you can, add 1 or 2px of transparency to your score numbers on both sides. ^.^

Here's how the mania.ini values are used.

Sorry, my mistake, value range should be 0 to 460.

There was an accident with the template exports which included bad taiko elements that shouldn't have been in there, Just dont use them.

His mistake or not, that problem exists in the template and among other things. Just a notice...

The Key overlay would be naming your files (inputoverlay-background) and (inputoverlay-key) <3

Here are some exambles

that (RBR's statement) one makes the skinner's mistake worse
don't use those elements, just like what RBR said

SO WRITE ABOUT IT NEAR SKIN TEMPLATE IF IT'S A TEMPLATE MISTAKE! :/

After few more posts nobody will read this here (at least only people who are reading skinning tutorial...)

Aha! Input Overlay... odd since it's labeled key overlay in the game. Ah well thanks.

It works now! Only problem now is that the notes aren't lined up properly with it. At least I can tweak the slider to fix that problem. Maybe not, my idea backfired lol.

Yeah the score numbers need to be spaced better. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I redid those numbers for little changes so I'm more or less not in the mood to deal with them right now. I'll do it at the end of everything lol.

I'll have it fully released when I'm certain it's done. As of right now I have it available for my fans that want it but with a "beta" disclaimer lol. Since I'm here may as well ask something unrelated to skinning. I was using puush for file uploading since it seems the friendliest but I hit the limit on it. Mediafire has a really nice space but I'm not sure if it'll work for everyone? I'm not sure if that site may be blocked in some areas or just poor in general. Am I good with using MF or should I look for another site?

I would recommend you dropbox. Descend space available, uploading from pc and you can even replace file without changing links (as long as file name is the same).
