I see. I didn't find that post while searching. I'm blind :X. Time to fix it Peppy :p
How do you reproduce this issue?
Merged your thread into this one btw.
It mostly only happens at qualified maps. Soo. Well. Before you start a qualified map, instead of starting the map, osu shows you the yellow background announcing that this is an qualified map. It happens almost always if you press ESC at this time, or while the song is playing. It also happens if you Pause the game, and start it again in a very small time interval. Hope I could help
It's strange. I can't really reproduce it myself if I try right now. It just happens...
I assume this could get a little tricky to fix...
