Full Submission with Title/Artist Change -- Mistakes by NoHitter (hijacked by peppy)

When changing the title or artist in a map, a problem may occur in which you may not be able to submit it without making a duplicate map.

DO NOT SUBMIT IF THE EDITOR "WEB" MENU IS DISABLED. YOUR MAP WILL DUPLICATE.

To fix a duplicating map, do the following:

Easy Method (don't have any local changes):

  1. Delete local copy of map.
  2. Download copy from osu! website.
  3. Go into editor. Make sure the "Web" menu is enabled (not greyed out).
  4. Change the Artist/Title info.
  5. Do not exit the editor.
  6. Use File > Open... to change the Artist/Title in other difficulties.
  7. Full Submit.

Hard Method (keep local changes):

  1. Goto the beatmap info page on the osu! site for your map (http://osu.ppy.sh/b/xxxx -- NOT the forum thread).
  2. Open song setup for each difficulty and set the artist/title back to what is on the website.
  3. Go into Song Select and hit F5. Wait a few seconds.
  4. Go into editor. Make sure the "Web" menu is enabled (not greyed out).
  5. Change the Artist/Title info.
  6. Do NOT exit the editor.
  7. Use File > Open... to change the Artist/Title in other difficulties.
  8. Full Submit.

If you have any duplicated maps, please contact a BAT for resolution.

Do not submit if the editor "web" menu is disabled. Otherwise, your map will be duplicated.
