This looks very nice!
They also have an overview of UltraStar games and software: https://usdb.eu/software
Would appreciate if someone could contact them on facebook and ask them to include UltraStar Play on their site: https://www.facebook.com/UltrastarDB.
I don't use facebook so I can't do this myself.
Also, there now is a video about UltraStar Play on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2B8BJeEcjj0
Feel free to copy&paste this to spread the word ;)

I just found a new site with UltraStar songs: https://usdb.eu/home

Maybe we should try to contact them and talk about the zip file format and a song content registry? I could write a server reference implementation for that but am currently not sure what the requirements are and how stuff like the API and workflow should be designed

a legal implementation could be like this: Alice is a registered at Samplestore, who also sell licensed karaoke music. Alice bought a tons of music content, more than fits on their phone's memory. USP could have some integration into such a store, which allows Alice to find and one-click download+"install" content or remove content again form the phone.
In countries where music licensing is not as complicated or when using only creative commons content (or similar), such a "store" could include free content which is available even for unregistered users.

Checkout the new website of UltraStar Play: https://usplay.net
I redesigned the page using a bootstrap theme to better highlight its features.
Also, I wrote an article for German blog linuxnews.de
If you also know or follow some tech related blog/magazine for Android, games, or open source, then you might want to sent them a hint about UltraStar Play. Spread the word ;)

Ai , sorry guys. Found this chat too late - opened an issue already. It seems this problem was mentioned here before :-S
This channel however looks a little bit abandoned
achimmihca
@achimmihca
Not completely abandoned :)
Your issue should be added to the wiki. I think in winter there will be more activity on USPlay again

^^
to your question above:
i think a legal way to implement songs from different websites is to have a pluggable mechanism

lets assume you can identify a sheme behind the offering from usdb.eu > the user could create an external source of songs which can be specified by an URL for retrieving the song list and details, an zip file scheme etc.

software would be legal since you will not ship an illegal downloading mechanism but in contries with lax copyrights it would be ok to add these sites as source

OR you have two different binaries and you can let the customer decide on what to download, depending on legal requirements of the downlaoders country.

@basisbit
@bwestpha:matrix.org something like this is already somewhat implemented in UltraStar Play. It is however missing some songs discovery + selective songs download way. It already has the download from url feature with progress display, unpacks the zip file into the fitting folder and so on.

After quite a while, I just tried to compile the latest code with 2021.1.23f1, but even after re-running download-dependencies.sh, I get the following errors that trigger Unity safe mode. Any suggestions?

@achimmihca
probably incompatible Unity version.
the travis build is using unity 2021.1.1f1, which should work
I would not bother upgrading to new Unity before they release 2021.2 (which should be soon)
Markus Böhning
@bohning
thanks a lot, then I will wait for 2021.2!

Just installed Ultrastar Play on my Nvidia Shield can't believe it works almost flawlessly. Set song path to a USB key works well.
Also works with The SingStar USB mic on the Shield. Only issue is playing AVI encoded tracks but pretty awesome.

Thanks for the feedback! Happy that it works for you :)

Just dropping this as an idea here
I am not sure if the code for that changed already but I had a pretty nice idea for gameplay. So row positions are calculated by the average midi note of the current sentence right? So if all notes have the same pitch they'll be in the middle and it'd look like its the same pitch as the last sentence. On my web version I tried making that average midi note influenced by whatever the the average midi note for the last sentence was. (took the average of the old and the new) That way it looks a lot better. Could probably be improved for large jumps but it's a nice QOL thing.
achimmihca
@achimmihca
I like the idea to incorporate the previous sentence average fot current note positioning. However, this needs to be specified more clearly
Nico Franke
@ZerNico
I'll test some stuff out and see how it works. First I gotta get USPlay to run inside the unity editor on my PC tho

how to get access from my mobile phone?
frogro
@frogro
Or how to access the Download folder on my phone?
achimmihca
@achimmihca
Hi, the download location for the demo songs on Android is accessible from normal file manager (in Android and from PC I think) .
I don't know if Android (and Unity on Android) support network folders out of the box
Network address normally starts with two backsalshes. Did you try \\192.168.178.34?
achimmihca
@achimmihca
If this is not working already, please open a new issue for UltraStar Play that it should support network folders on Android.
basisbit
@basisbit
It sounds like the above question has different expectations that what the answer is for. UltraStar Play requires the song folder to be on the local device as a folder. Play however also supports downloading song package files (which are then unpacked to a local folder of the app storage on the phone / TV / computer). I guess a documentation of what is expected as format of the downloadable song package file is missing so far.
