File installation (Extract)

Spread Keyboard Stepmania Files!

The installation of the files is quite simple especially with the compilation method that I apply to each of my files.

The website has two types of compiled files.

The Quick installation [.exe] and the ZIP format.

* Note that the Quick install CAN be opened with Winrar because it’s based on the .RAR format. *

Here are the procedures to follow depending which version you choose.

Quick installation [.exe]

You must have Windows.

(Otherwise you will have to use the ZIP method for the extraction. And you will only be able to use WinRaR to extract them)

(See the external guide to unrar on a Linux Distro)

You have to click on the file. Your computer may be warning you.

If this happens you must click on ” Additional Information ” and click on Run anyway.

The extractor will NEVER ask for administrator access.

It just copies the files to where you want them.

Then you need to find your Stepmania Folder and click on the ” Songs ” folder and click on Extract.

When it’s over, you can remove the installer and start Stepmania.

The Music should have appeared in the packs tab (in-game).

(*Sometimes the pack is separated into several parts since the maximum size of an [.exe] is 3GB.

When this happens, you must have all the parts in the same folder to perform the extracting process separately.)

Zip [.zip]

You must have 7Zip or WinRAR. (For MAC or Linux)

You must move the Zip to the ” Songs ” folder (*of Stepmania).

And you just need to copy the pack in the folder.

And then, delete the Zip and start Stepmania.

The Music/Pack should have appeared in the packs tab (in-game).

Update of a pack and / or a Step

If you update a pack that you already have, it is recommended to delete the ” Cache ” from it.

This also applies to the Archive

On Stepmania 5, the cache is in ”%appdata% ” / Stepmania 5 / Cache.

You must delete the file linked to the said pack in / Banners and / Songs

On ProjectMoondance, it is located in the Stepmania Outfox / Cache / Songs.

You must delete the file linked to the pack in it.
