The skinning tutorial has been moved!
The character limit for forum posts and the fact that BBCode is an outdated language that doesnt have any good editors made me move the tutorial. You can find it and many other useful skinning related topics here:

I'm not totally sure if that is possible. The position of the scorenumbers is defined by their height. So if you add a lot of space onto the top part of the canvas it could work. But you would also need to add the same amount to the bottom of the canvas, otherwise the ranking panel will be completly broken and this might lead to a size at which osu stops loading the images.

Hello, sorry to bother you but I have some questions maybe you have the answers.

When hitting a hitcircle in a slider, how do I make it so that it doesnt expand larger than the slider?

Also, how do I get rid of the matching lines from circle to circle? I find it quite distracting.

Thanks for your help.

the lines are followpoints. Just add a blank followpoint.png and remove all other followpoint files from your skin.

Hi, I'm in the process of making my first skin and I have one question that bothers me: where do I get sounds from? Do I have to gather them from a few skins or can I find them somewhere like a site or something?

The easiest way to get nice sounds is to grab them from other skins. The only easy alternatives you have are to look for sounds on sites like freesound.org or take them from games and their menus

Thats a question I can't really give an answer to, since its personal preference. I personally start with a blank folder and the first thing I add are blank files for all the stuff I want to remove. A lot of other people take another skin as a base, this however has the risk that 1) you will be very close to the style of the skin you use as a base and 2) that you will leave some images from the base skin in your skin, making it a mixed skin.
I would probably recommend to start from a new folder, then doing the skin.ini and then whenever you make an element take one from another skin as a base and drop it into your image editor as a reference. This will prevent you from having files from your base skin in your final product

I have no clue about GIMP and there are very few people in the skinning community that use it. Try to PM h3oCharles via PM or Discord.

"The grade"? What do you mean by that? ranking-[letter]? ranking-[letter]-small? Anything else?

There are only a few elements that can be animated, but all follow the same scheme. Make each frame of the animation a seperate file, called scorebar-colour-0, scorebar-colour-1, and so on
