Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to control the speed of the scorebar-colour animation. I've tried to add extra frames to make the animation slower or delete frames to make it faster, but these frame changes only come into effect when previewing the skin. When I'm in game the animation speed is always the same no matter how many frames there are.


I will just quote thing that I wrote 5 month ago. :D

That depends which one part you are actually animating.

With adding to skin.ini "AnimationFramerate: <Number of frames per second>" - This option will affect every animation that you have in your skin (except hitbursts and sliderball).
But now how to control speed with it and how to make different speed on different parts?

This is a tricky part. As stated AnimationFramrate is affecting amount of frames used per second.
Example: We have animated lifebar that contains 8 frames and animated skip button that contains 20 frames. We are setting AnimationFramerate to 4.
Full loop of lifebar animation will take 2 seconds , 5 second for skip button.
In other words The more frames you have and lower Animation Framerate is, then slower animation will be.

But now case where we want fast animation for skip and very slow for lifebar. Let's say we are using the same amount of frames as previosly stated (8 and 20)
You are setting AnimationFramerate to 10. Now you have pretty fast skip button but way too fast lifebar (less than 1 second to do loop) but you want it to be slow. So the only way is to increase amount of frames. You will need to duplicate frames few times.
Example :
scorebarcolour-0, scorebarcolour-1, scorebarcolour-2 and scorebarcolour-3 are using picture number 1. scorebarcolour-4, scorebarcolour-5, scorebarcolour-6, scorebarcolour-7 are using picture number 2 etc.

After that you will have "8 frames" as 40. So now with AnimationFramerate it will take 4 second instead less than 1.
It's not taking that much time as it's looks to duplicate frames. Generally only renaming them is a little annoying but still is possible to do this in few minutes.

(menu-back is not affected by normal duplication of frames. You need to add AnimationFramerate to control it's speed).

I don't know if this is just me but after today's update all of the hitcircle combo colours that are a part of a slider have turned black (not that I'm complaining cuz it looks pretty cool but I'm wondering if this is a glitch?)

While using GIMP

For making nicer circles, use feather edges option.

does it means taiko-bar-right isn't widescreen-compatible?


Just to let you know, I messed with that element for a hour. It is a pain in the ass to get perfect. I gave up.

I have doubts that taiko-bar-right stretches from left to right (assuming that taiko-bar-right has a text).

First peppy finally fixed spinner background

[peppy] Fix spinner background opacity being completely wrong.


But next

[peppy] Restore spinner background dim. Fix using SpinnerBackground = 255,255,255 in skin.ini.


He needed to restore it. Many people are used to that dim and I understand that. But we have alternative way to fix dimming.
Great option for people who can't use editing programs and just want to have more or less dimmed spinner background.

As stated in change log, add SpinnerBackground: 255,255,255 under [colours] section to remove spinner background dim. <3

And by changing RGB code in SpinnerBackground: 255,255,255 you can manipulate colour of that dim. For example :

Actually, there IS a solution, by 'squeezing' your taiko-bar-right, but, yeah, I feel ya

It DOES stretch from the right edge of taiko-bar-left, but probably only for non-standard res (4:3), as I told you earlier (or not?)..

Is it possible to change Osu Mania bar positions example

|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|

So that it has a space in the middle?

it's okay to post a solution instead of just asking for support, right? :p
[ for widescreen (16:10/16:9) skinners ]

I'm assuming you've already saw my post about stretching taiko-bar-right issue, so I'm giving y'all a solution :

Make the taiko-bar-right(-glow) HALF of the size template, which is originally 845*200 to 423*200, But, instead of just a canvas resize, do an image resize, or 'squeeze' your image.

NOTE: For Photoshop users don't add any blending options (glows, shadows) AFTER you 'squeeze' the image. Instead, flatten your layers first, then resize.
Same thing goes for any image editor.

But there's a catch:
your taiko-bar-right WILL be blurry (looks like you've just used a JPG on this element/not HD even on standard). A possible workaround would be make this element the only HD element on a standard resolution skin, thus the element dimension would be 845 x 400 (haven't tested yet, If anyone have tested this, let me know :D )

as an example below, I've just ONLY 'squeezed' the text, but method I gave above will work, hopefully.



this solution is dedicated to Uruoki, who has messed with this element for an hour, and finally gave up :p
Don't giving up, Uruoki, you can do this~! :D

Is it possible to have the two taiko circles (red and blue) have different images? I tried taikocircleoverlay0 and 1 but it wouldn't work D:

Also, I got a custom taiko pippidon.. which disappears after the idle time. Vanishes and doesn't come back again.. Any idea why that happens?

Put a transparent taiko-slider instead of not skinning it (this will make your skin uses default taiko-slider)
Here, use mine, if you're too lazy :p
collapsed text

yes, it's there, right click and save :D

1. No, you can't. taikohitcircleoverlay# is for animated overlay (?) You can only have different images for normal and big notes..

2. Probably you're missing some images that is required:
Quoting from this thread:
