I found a way to work osu, but before you do this way, try the other techniques. This way is a bit tedious, but it gets the job done. There will be some unesserary steps, but the way I did it, it worked.

1. Download PortingKit (http://www.PortingKit.com)

2. Download both the recent mac and windows versions. (I'm not sure if you need to have the windows, but download it anyway.)

3.Do an show package contents on the mac version, remove the osu.exe, and place both the osuinstaller.exe and osu.exe on the desktop.

4.In PortingKit, create a new wrapper called osu (File --> New Custom Port) on the WS9WineStaging2.16 engine and Mac Driver Window System.

5. During the installation, change the location of the wrapper to the desktop. (Not needed, but will come in handy later)

6. When prompted to place an installer, put the osuinstaller.exe and when prompted to place an exe, put the osu.exe

7.Then with the wrapper, go to Winetricks and download dotnet40.

8.THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. Create a new folder on the desktop called osu or a name you will remember.

9.When it is downloaded, press place on PortingKit or the wrapper on the desktop.

10. ALSO IMPORTANT. When osu! is installing, at the bottom there should say "osu! is installing at..." Change the location to the folder you made on the desktop.

11. The game will start up, but it will need to install an update. Do this.

12. Wait for the game to download the pre- downloaded songs, then exited out.

13. Repeat steps 10-12. You will ALWAYS need to change the location to the folder you made and it will ALWAYS tell you it needs an update. If you don't get the update, then it will not allow you to see online scores and such.

14. In the folder is the files of osu!, this is the only way to download new songs. For some reason, the game will not allow you to exit full-screen. Put the new songs in there, and when you start up the game after changing the location, the songs should appear.

Now that should be the steps. It is a bit inconvenient, but it will work. Make sure you change the location ALWAYS because if you don't than it will go to its original location, the songs will not be there. Also, in the settings, if you want to fix the frame rate, go to the settings to removed dropped frames, but this is important. DO NOT PUT ON COMPATIBILITY MODE. It will crash the game, and you cannot open it again.

Hope this helps, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I found why my osu wasnt working (This is the second time this has happened and i believe it was the same reason why it didnt work the first time).
After playing with the wineskin stuff, it said i was missing something about a gecko (gecko from wine hq) after that, i clicked install as it was missing, it downloaded and osu opened up working like normal once the download finished. https://imgur.com/a/a1AkI that is my set screen options (if it will help anyone) and my engine is WS9Wine 2.22.

Sorry for the wait. I was a bit busy, but I finally got a video up. I should warn you about a couple of things:
There is one error I had. Once you extract the exe, MAKE SURE YOU DELETE THE MACBOOK REMAINS, AND CLEAR TRASH.

I also learned that try not to put too many songs into the song folder at once. For some reason, it doesn't pick up that songs are in the folder. I suggest about 20-30 at a time.

Otherwise It should work.

Osu works on HIgh Sierra as longest you know what to do about it. It took me almost 3 months now to fix it after the damn update. Just Download and install PortingKit

GUYS I HAVE FOUND A PROPER FIX FOR OSU ON HIGH SIERRA!!! Found by accident once I had already given up trying to get Osu to work on HS but follow the steps on this YouTube video and it works. Apparently High Sierra stops Wineskin from acknowledging your GPU and this tricks it into doing so.
