Issues fixed[edit]

Missing Skin Objects on Mac/Linux[edit]

Resolve errors for skins on Mac/Linux
  1. Some skins (including the included ones) will show error messages in game on operating systems with case sensitive file systems. This is due to a mismatch between the capitalization of the filename on disk, and the filename in the skin's LUA script.
  2. Go to the Audiosurf 2 skins folder - /steamapps/common/Audiosurf 2/skins/.
  3. Open the folder of the skin that has produced the error, and open the LUA file in that directory.
  4. Cross-reference the names of the various .obj and .png files in the folder to the ones in the LUA script, and change one or the other to match.
