It'd be nice to have a toggle in options for the main menu of osu! so that the background would change with the song playing.

e.g.



would mean that the background of the main menu would be changed to




edit: Here's a wonderful video made by Mira-san that demonstrates the idea very well.

Emm... This feature already done (but for supporters only) or I don't understand main post?

I don't want ugly anime backgrounds around my osu. so no
most of them would be black (because I remove backgrounds) anyway.

as an extra point in the options i think i would like to have something like that. nice idea as it would be a fine altenative to the "fix" background that can be set as a supporter.

Even tho they all might be black because most of the players now days removes the background (I do the same thing)
Still it would be an awesome update for everyone and adding the toggle button would make it so people could deside if they want it or not so.

And then osz2 comes in and forcibly replaces all removed backgrounds.

Honestly, there could even be a setting for this. I don't see the harm in it.

fun spoiler happened.

anything can happen.

Deleted BG/No BG = default blue main menu color or the menu-background.jpg in the skin folder

It would be nice. But as someone mentioned, it will look bad on widescreen.

Omg, this would be awesome!
But like Saten say, maybe when there's no background, our own background could be used?

what happens with the custom menu-background?
deadbeat
think of it like a layer. you would have the main osu background at the bottom. then you'd have your custom one over that. then this would be on top of your custom one. so it'd be over your custom one. so nothing really happens to it. you just wouldn't be able to see it while this feature is on. but you would be able to turn it off and see your custom one again
that make sense?
