I don't think they do, it's just slider style 3 combined with that slider color shows more through your circle than the background of the non slider circle.

Your are probably on the beat of the circle in editor and the slider starts at a later time. Notes will gradually fade out when they get further away from the point you are in the song for editor.
Don't know the name of this 'point in song' cause I can't map ;(
Hopefully you understood my bad explanation.

some important advice for HD Skinners:

1. Double the Resolution of standard elements
2. Create That Element Using Bigger Images
3. Save that Element to (Filename)@2x.png
4. After you save that element, divide the HD resolution eg. 1332/2=666
5. Save it as (Filename).png
6. You have SD & HD Element Skinned

Hi guuuys,

i made a skin and now ranking-graph looks terrible.

check it here - how to fix it? i want to get rid ofthis box complete

Jackyyy
If you want to remove it completely, replace the 'ranking-graph.png' with an empty/full transparent image.
or
If they box is part of the 'ranking-panel.png', use some sort of software that supports transparency (Gimp, Photoshop etc.) and just erase it.

It would be good to include that at the first post so other skinners can save time on making their skins..

fyi the slider is on play so I believe it should be on 100%
Also hitcircle.png intended to be a bit transparent, I only curious about that overlay.

Hey guys, I need help. I downloaded this image to create a comboburst, it had a grey background and I followed the steps in the tutorial to make the background transparent. I saved it as .png. In game it looks like this:
What am I doing wrong ?

Edit: Ok i could fix it by coloring the background white first and then removing it. You have to select the color that will be made transparent and it is white by default in gimp. Since i couldnt figure out how to change it to the exact grey i have i could do it this way.
Rei Hakurei
well sounds like the original image's deleted part didn't fully deleted, like 50% transparency left behind

So it wasn't white as you can see.
1. Use colour picker tool to select background colour : (with this you will see that background colour wasn't white (#FFFFFF) )



2. Now open that picked colour and copy it's HTML notatnion :



3. Select mask of character and open "Colour to alpha" and change colour by clicking on bar and pasting previously copied HTML colour notation.



Well these combobursts tutorials still need upgrade. ^^;

So... you are trying to put animated one and normal one together?

Because I can't tell anything else just from screenshot without explanation. :/

different hitcircle overlay appears in a different combo string

like:
hitcircleoverlay.png = 1st combo string
hitcircleoverlay-0.png = 2nd combo string

will try it at school

Is your hitcircleoverlay partially transparent?

osu! has a bug where the hitcircleoverlay is drawn twice on the head of a slider, making it less transparent.

The only thing you can do about it is make your hitcircleoverlay opaque, sorry :(

Okay, tested it and have some kind of conclusion.

Hitcircleoverlay were supposed to be animated.
Now is kinda funny to use. If you use hitcircleoverlay-0.png together with normal hitcircleoverlay.png then hitcircle will use only animated version. However Slider is using both, but beginning is additionally covered by "animation".
This way you can kinda create hitcircle that have different beginning and ending of slider. ;D

hitcircleoverlay.png applies only to sliders.
hitcircleoverlay-0.png applies only to hitcircles.

This way sliders and hitcircles have different sprites.

Edit2:

Hi,
I created some combobursts and they have all white spaces. I never used gimp before and from the tutorial here I dont understand how to remove them properly, can somebody help pls^^
OsuMe65
Photoshop?

use either the Magic Wand or Magic Eraser (use it at your own risk)

-----------------------------------------------------------------

place the picture here and let me (or someone who has Photoshop) try (or try the suggestion above)
OsuMe65
(2nd post)

tested the conflict between 2 different overlays

Hakito is right (my assumption was wrong)


Fig. 1 Two Different overlays ingame

As you can see, hitcircleoverlay-0.png is the hitcircle (the black one) while the actual hitcircleoverlay.png is used in the slider (the white one)

Would be glad about some help.

In your skin.ini under the [Colours] section you need to set your combo colors, that image uses 255,255,255 so if you want all your combos to be like that set the five combo# lines to white.

[Colours]
Combo1 : 255,255,255
Combo2 : 255,255,255
Combo3 : 255,255,255
Combo4 : 255,255,255
Combo5 : 255,255,255

Was asked to post my question her, so just copypasting my post. Apparently it was in the wrong forum and I was told to try to ash here:

Hi, I recently downloaded a skin called Default by Default. Found it in the desc of this video; ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71l07AHFHLQ )
But when I try to use it myself the skin looks like this "in-game" http://prntscr.com/1lfsn0 As you can see it's kinda stretched. The download was a zip file, so I unzipped it into osu!>skins. How can I fix this? thx

Edit: Please watch the video, then the screenshot to compare.

Update: Tried another skin, this time it's not stretched, it's more shrinked. Screenshots: http://prntscr.com/1lfvk1 , http://prntscr.com/1lfvn2 . I didn't get this error with the other skin.

It doesn't look stretched at all? It looks totally fine.

I think that has something to do with your system's language conflicting with the format of the .ini, I had a friend from Norway run into the same issue and I can't remember how he fixed it.

Trust me, it's really stretched on the one skin and minimized on the other skin or w/e. You should be able to see a clear difference from my screenshots and the guys video. I have a 1920x1080 resolution and the whole thing is stretched like sh#t. Also, when I put it to the default osu skin it was stretched and I had to uninstall my skins to have it normal again.

Well, video was posted almost year ago. Same with the skin that wasn't updated since that time. This year there was a lot of changes in skinning, including changes in some osu!mania options. You can try to fix it on your own.

Find in this skin files called 4k.ini 6k.ini and 7k.ini (well should be more of them but we will leave that).
Open desired option file (4k for example) and find line :

 ColumnWidth:56,56,56,56

And edit it in the way that you need. If is too stretched lower values to ColumnWidth:50,50,50,50 or less. Save and select skin in options again.

Note that mania notes bug out if you change their widths (which I think is what he's talking about, since his screenshot is totally fine), if you play 7k then play 4k the 4k notes will be super thin. Using non standard height notes just makes this worse. The only way to fix this is to restart osu and then not go into any other modes that change the widths.
