Wrong pad image position for ride cymbal
The image for the ride cymbal pad is wrongly positioned. It is too low, too much to the left and it is drawn over the cymbal (should be under?).
Currently it's by-design, because 115 has lane-order feature. (CY/RD position is not fixed to the right edge of lanes)
Is there any good idea to show RD well?
Hm, I understand. It's difficult.
Maybe it can just be positioned like in 099 anyways?
I made a small test image:
It's not the best I guess...
Another idea is to position it differently if the CY lane is the rightmost position, but I think it's a bad solution.
I have a question, is there a reason that the pad images are stretched horizontally? If the width is scaled to 75% they look more natural I think.
Maybe the 099 position looks better then as well?
Here is an update:
The small ride img looks a bit strange at first but maybe it's not that bad?
In your version the pad image wasn't cut out cleanly and I think the "pad flush.png" wasn't updated properly so there were graphical glitches. It can be seen here:
I re-made it more cleanly and with proper "pad flush.png":
.xcf files is for GIMP (similar to photoshop). "_NEW" is the original image with the ride cut out cleanly in a new layer. "_NEW_small2" is the resized version.
The png's are included as well. This is a screenshot from DTXMania:
Actually, what do you think about removing the ride pad img completely and merging it with the CY? Hi-hat open is also merged with hi-hat, and they use the same chip design.
Thank you providing pad images. I'll merge them.
About removing RD pad image (like Hihat open), I alto think it's good idea. I'll remove RD pad from release118.
(I'll officially release 117 on tomorrow (Jan/17). After that I'll remove it...)
