Hey all, just had a question in regards to uploading custom songs into an ITG cabinet converted to run Stepmania 5

From what I've looked up, it seems that on ITG cabs, you needed to have specifically only the .ogg and .sm file for the cabinet to run your songs. I'm just wondering if this factor still applies to cabinets that were modded to run on SM5 or if the restrictions (song less than 5mb, no backgrounds or videos etc).

Thanks for the help in advance!

edit: just realized this should be in the other music games forum and not the bemani forum; would appreciate it if a mod could move it there

I did a bit of poking around on my Stepmania cabinet, and here's what I've found:

- Custom song support was added in SM5.1, so you'll need to upgrade to that and enable flash drive support if haven't already.

- Looks like most of the old limitations are in place (no backgrounds, no video), but some other limitations can be set in Preferences.ini (you get to change the max file size and song length, among a few other options).

- The custom song I used to test this with had a .ssc and a .mp3 file. Doesn't look like it needs to be an ogg and a sm any more, just anything Stepmania can read for a regular song.

- Where you'll find custom songs in the song selection seem to be theme-dependent. The theme I normally use didn't show them, but the SM5.1 default theme made a new category with the same name as my player name for my custom songs.

I've got everything set up and working over here, so if you have other questions or wanna know more about setting everything up feel free to ask.
