I am sick and tired of seeing Xi-Style being used. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. That concept I had in my head prior to Nexus finally came to fruition.

So yes, I virtually re-made Xi-Style.

The problem with this was not technical at all — but rather, how I would go about remaking this without losing the "Xi-Style" feel. This is a little closer to what I had envisioned when I first started skinning. I don't know if I succeeded, but I am slightly more pleased with this than the original skin. I don't know what else to say. I'm starting to hate this skin already.

Angst angst angst.

Awesome theme. One of my favorite ones and always will be :D

I love this skin; it fixes all of my problems with the original Xi-Style! Pretty dang good. <3 I'm going to use this skin for a loooooong time.

XS is so gaudy. No consistent design, poor typeface choice, blatant overuse of tacky effects (scanlines); the list goes on. G2 still suffers from this, because after all, it's still XS. Every time I saw a video using it all I could think of was everything I could have done better. I'm still not pleased with G2 because the original direction -- well, there wasn't really a direction -- sucked. Ultimately I just wanted to make something slightly less shitty so I don't feel as bad.

I'm never happy with anything I make. Isn't everybody like that?

I love the "Performance gauge" text effect, small and shiny!

Great job as always. It does look alot better than the first Xi-style. So once again nice work. 8-)

But you say you hate this skin, so by applying that logic...

*goes to cry in the corner*

Still, Xi is the most awesome skin i've played with to date. =D

Stop making awesome skins Xiao... You're making more and more other people's skinworks look like garbage...
Nah, just joking...you've done it again :)
I was a Xi-style user for 2 years, and yeah I do prefer this skin over the original :3

I'll admit that I've always thought that Xi-Style was a bit gaudy. This update looks like sex. Never stop making skins.
Wassaaaa
this skin makes me easier to play osu! is simple and elegant, thanks!

Xiao. Amazing again. I have all your original skins and I love each and every single one of them. Well done again!

Hawt. After working with osu!stream I'm sick of seeing the current osu! default skin. Need to replace it with something like this :P.

This skin is awesome, but for some reason, I don't quite like this as much as the original skin.

I suppose my main complaint would be size, the size of the hitbursts is really small and I don't really like the look and makes it so I can't use this skin for modding as I might miss finding hidden notes.

And then the combo burst feels really intrusive, like it just has to make its presence known, the combo burst from the old one didn't really do that, it just appeared.

I don't know, you probably won't care about the ramblings of an old Xi skin user but those two things just make the skin unusable for me. Other than that though, I think the rest of the skin looks pretty clean and polished, in fact, I love the spinner.

EDIT: I actually forgot to mention the reverse slider, I don't think it looks that great colored the way it.

There's always the option of taking the original score stars and replacing them. I'm a fan of small score stars; I need to maximize readability in-game or I can't read anything. I've received far more positive reception about this change than I have negative responses.

Unfortunately, I can't give you a high quality set of larger score stars because I forgot to keep a non-rasterized version of the document. The best I can do is upscale slightly if you so desire.
