Very creative but why is the rank covered? The client crashes. Loading issues appear quite a lot.
Edit: The rank is covered only after I played a map.... uhhh yea.
Edit no.2: This skin is unplayable. It crashes more than once and also blocks you from playing a lot of beatmaps. Playing stream maps kills your framerate and your eyes cuz of twitching images.

oof.

Could you send me DM with screenshots according to those issues? ._.
That is not supposed to be like what you've experienced (except for gameplay-side). Seems like sprites failed to load.

Then, which rank sprite that you mean?

Also, did you have tried the ultramini one?

* Added to issue list

It highly depends on your computer's specifications. I didn't have any issues with it myself, especially crashing.
You can try the Ultra Mini version, to see if that solves any problems.

(Also, I agree. I don't think this skin was meant for playability.)

I dont see any issues with my specs.

Using the SD versions helped. The game does not crash anymore, but same issues with the failscreen and beatmaps not loading sometimes.

I don't like this:
- too huge files like menu-"mode"-small and menu-"mode"-med
- huge scorebar-ki are very distracting
- huge animated miss scared and distract me

Why is all hitsounds are .ogg files? :?:

I found a bug:

One things are missed :D

This skins needs a debug becaus if i play a map and press escape no exit, Restart or Resume Button are there and i can´t Exit the Map

I can´t Play Much Beatmaps because osu says "There was an error while loading this Beatmap"

But my scores got Submitted. BUT my Biggest Problem with this Skin is i played a Very Fast AR beatmap with fast sliders and at the Drop Osu Crashed I´ve seen only one message before it crashed "an Error........." More not and i cant take screenshot. This skin is Pretty but also not Finished

I'm sorry for those issues. It looks like the sprites have reached the maximum value of TextureAtlas's size [which is 4096px of width and height] that allowed on OpenTK.

*This is also weird, that as long as i'm using and making this skin,... it doesn't make issues like what you've mentioned before

:thinking:

I'll try to fix them by moving some parts into another sprites and reduces the size of sprites in the next release.

For this time, You can also using the SD or Ultra Mini variant.

Anyway, Thanks for all your feedback ^^)/

Also, the Pause and Fail screen are actually skinned. I forgot to provide the screenshots of it. XD
I'm gonna update this post after I get home
Updated!

The pause and fail screen is actually skinned as well.
It just "fail to load sprites" issue happened to you ._.

I haven't encountered any performance problems with this skin. I'm using the HD version.

This skin isn't bad, but I still wanna say a few things:
-there is no need for the animated frames of pippidon, just make the basic ones blank and everything is fine. (not really a problem, just a recommendation to have less clutter in the skin)
-that huge animated miss really is annoying/irritting and draws to much attention
-the SliderStyle: command does not work anymore and even if, 4 would be an invalid input
-I wouldn't recommend to use Version:latest, this could fuck up your skin in case a new ini version gets released. You should go with 2.5
-this part is covering the default text https://puu.sh/CH7qe/c7901ea6f3.png
-looks kinda weird to have the "mode selection" thing covern half of the osu box. maybe put it to the right?
-the text isn't centered on selection-tab https://puu.sh/CH7rm/eb43fe6d9d.png
-the selection-mods-over isn't really fitting imo. All other ones slide to the side, while this one changes the pencil for a circle
-the ranking panel is boring and doesn't really fit the rest of the skin.
-I believe the combobreak sound isn't as loud as the others, I overheard it quite a few times.
-and the most important thing: what the hell is that customizer folder. Please explain what it does, right now it just looks hella suspicious to me

It does multiple things. The main features are to change some elements to fit an other aspect ratio (2.40:1) and to change some skin.ini stuff.

Very cool skin. Liked the interface and the hitmiss skin.

So far no performance and ram (failed to load) issue with
1920x1080 resolution (16:9)
i7 -8700
8gb RAM
gtx 1060
(Using HD version)

I liked the style you put into this skin. (Especially the selection mode.)

But i do encounter some other problems.


The game retry even if I press far away (by horizontal) from the "retry" button



Also, what's sliderstyle?
What's sliderstyle= 4?

It used to change the way slider bodies were rendered. That command is useless now.

Oops, I forgot to delete that line ._.)
This line was actually useless now.

The retry button always on focus because the retry button like you saw before is actually transparent and it stretched to make retry button in pause/fail and ranking-panel section can be pressed by the same alignment

Why is there a "retry" behind "watch replay"?
Yes. The retry button on ranking-panel was drew into ranking-# sprite

Btw, thanks for giving feedback XD

i apparently afraid if my skin couldn't work at all. it also crashes osu! for me so often.

fortunately, some of others sent me those issues and I investigated what are actually going on and help me a lot to improvise this skin, then post fixes in another release and it's more stable for now.

Anyway, Thanks for everyone who had support me to making this skin and make it possible ^^)/

Your skin looks great btw

Unfortunately, this skin isn't comfortable enough for some players because it only focused for it's appearance only at this state.

Hope, i can make some focused gameplay skin one day :3

Really great job, for me it looks like a new skin from developers. I've tried all modes and I really enjoyed it, although I only play std and maybe other modes aren't that good in the game, but I really liked std and the other modes didn't give me any bad feelings when playing. When I see such works, I understand that I dont try hard enough when creating skins.

Glad to hear that ^^)
to be honest, this is actually my first original skin and also my second skin that i made.
i really fluenced by material and fluent design because its simplicity and modern look.

at the first release, a lot of problems occured. from sprites load issue to osu crashes when starting with this skin but finally, they're fixed with latest version of this skin.

i'm not a clever one to making skin. but i'm trying to make my skin look better by doing some checks and re-evaluate them.

also, thanks for your feedback. I really appreciate it :D
you got it 👌

I think the skin is amazing but is there anyway to get rid of the explosions when playing mania.

I realized that the hit lighting on mania is too way out
Also, its explosions are same as the size of Jupiter and I agree with it XD
