I want to say a few things before I introduce the site.

In 2015, when I learned how to play the game, something was certain. I can't play this game with the default skin anymore. But wait... How to change skin? I didn't know anything about that. I downloaded and tested almost all skins on Skinning Forum. There are a lot of good skins, but also there are somethings that I do not like on every skin I play.

I discovered Skins folder and everything is changed for me! As a graphic designer, I told myself: "Finally! I can change them as I want." Everything has changed for me because when I created my first special skin I was totally adept the game and increase my rank quickly.

After meeting a few people in game someone suggested me a site for skinning; Beatmapr. The interface was different from the current one and it was not working and unfortunately there was no alternative.

Before I decided to create this site, I had no idea how to make a website. As I said, I was just a UI designer. I learned a few things about CSS because of my work. After a while my main job was CSS. Now I could design the site and do static(HTML & CSS) coding.

My colleague was doing PHP coding. I showed him this game. He never liked it. He still does not like it. He told me that everytime "Stop playing this game. It is disgusting. You can learn PHP instead of this." I could learn PHP, but what kind of project could I do after I learned it?

After a while I left my job. I was want to do something that belongs to me and can be used by others. The only important thing to me was how does it feel. That's why I started learning PHP.

After a few silly attempts I learned that zip file can be created with PHP and the skin files are actually a zip file. These two pieces of information were enough for me. The first thing that came to mind was making a skin generator that works flawlessly.

It is not possible to tell how the first skin file I created in the local version feels. Of course I have not been able to make a site that works perfectly in the first version. Some of you know, I change things almost every day since the day I first built the site. And thanks to all of you, your support and feedback, the site is active for over a year.

Why I'm telling this story to you? Because I want you to understand something that some of you do not understand. That is about feels. That is not about money, fame or other shits. The money is only needed to bring this to you. If you haven't noticed there is not even a donation button on the site anymore. The ads are enough for this job and I do not want to bother you. If ads are bothering you, it is your decision to block them. I made every part of this site with love! My only wish is you love it too!

Oh I really like the design of the web page. Gonna try it now
Good job!

* Technically, to nightcore is to raise the speed and pitch of hands up/euro dance track. Raising the speed and pitch of a song that does not fall into the two afore mentioned genres should not actually be called nightcore... so yeah, all the nightcore channels that just post sped up rock music aren't actually nightcore...

What a extremely well layout site, and I love the functionality of it. It must of taken you ages to write all of the JS.
Do you have any plan for custom user input like if someone wanted to use their own images instead of the image options you provide?

Thank you for the very kind comment :) Actually it took about 2 months. I used the PHP , Smarty , JS , jQuery, Less languages.

Yes, this is planned. Elements can be added by users in future relases.

Do you know what the most disrespectful thing with this project is?
Not even mentioning who designed these elements.
All these content creators get their stuff simply put into something without any consent from them. People like Garin, Pannari, Redon, Raflea, Azer, Quanteck, Soda, and many others don't even get any credits.

This project is not disrespectful. This is user-friendly ;)



Project is currently BETA, so creator names are not displayed for now. Soon all users can be see the who created the element. And elements can be added by users.

Some element creators aren't exist because skins mostly have same elements. How can i know which elements created by who? Do you have any idea for that?

If you see on this site your element. Tell me , i'll remove that immediately.

Sorry for my bad English.

and a lot of other stuff from other people I don't want to search for.

I'm not saying that you should remove everything.
You should add visible credits somewhere on the page, giving proper credits to most of the creators.

Also don't add skins from any streamers to this since they use mostly mixed skins where no real credits are even given (like WubWoofWolf, HappyStick, or Doomsday) and are not skin creators.
