Sorry, I cant help you with this. Have neither an Android TV nor wireless mics. But if the mics work in Android with other apps then I would expect them to work in UltraStar Play as well.
otherwise, you could try the UltraStar Play Companion app. If your TV and smartphone use the same WLAN then you should be able to use your smartphone as input for USPlay.

Thanks for your comments! Isn’t the Companion app only for Android? I have only iPhones

@achimmihca
Yes it is. Sorry, I can't help you

Maybe another question then. I’m trying to add my own songs from my ultrastar deluxe collection. I want to use my NAS for it. I can see how I can manuallty add a path but I can’t get it working. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong or in what format it should be.

@tomvds_twitter
would be easier if there were a built in filw browser to be sure. Now I use the path /storage/DS412/video/Songs which is a correct path as far as I can understand. I used Xplore to see how the structure and path compares to the original songs that are included. Any pointers?

@achimmihca
I think this is not supported. Currently, we use the Unity file system API to access song folders. Maybe this does not work for network folders, only for local files on tge device.
Maybe one could implement to download songs on the fly from network folders (or internet). But this is not on my roadmap yet.

@achimmihca
As a workaround, is there an Android tool to mount a network folder in the local file system? I could imagine that Unity API (and thus USPlay) would be able to access the files then, because network stuff would be handled by another layer
achimmihca
@achimmihca
Mounting seems to require root and might damage data if not done right. I think the easier short term solution is to sync relevant files to an SD Card, which can be accessed as local storage. There seem to be some file sync solutions
Tom
@tomvds_twitter
Ah got it. My collection is around 200 GB of songs so not sure if the local filesysge
File system or sd-card is a viable solution ;)

@achimmihca
I tried to access a folder on my SD card. This works from USPlay. However, I cannot access an external USB storage this way. I don't know why.
In the next Pull Request, I added a warning if a folder does not exist (from USPlay perspective). This helps to decide whether a path can be used or not.

Hello
Can I build this game for PlayStation?
achimmihca
@achimmihca
In theory it should be possible. But I never tried it. You could give it a chance.

For which PS? PS3? PS4? Both?
achimmihca
@achimmihca
Recent Unity supports compilation to PS4 and PS5. There is no PS3 support anymore.
Note further that "You need to register as a developer with the platform holders to develop console games." (https://unity.com/how-to/develop-console-video-games-unity)

I already tried sign-up for the Sony PlayStation developer program. There are various requirements that you can't possibly fulfill without either having a decent stack of money or being a big company. I mailed their contact address and asked for suggestions how to get a free / libre open source game as private person onto the PSN platform, and their response was that my only chance would be to find a big games dev company that wants to partner with us and which then does the release process for us.

By the way, I still have a registered and licensed Microsoft developer account that can release xbox games. So, we could consider publishing the game to xbox. However, I don't have one to test the game on.

Oh nice, someone wrote a paper mentioning UltraStar Play for health beneficial purposes :heart: https://www.academia.edu/71367974/Singing_with_an_Angry_Birds_like_Game?pop_sutd=false

For the XBOX developer thing you shouldnt wait too long. Afaik they revoke access if you dont publish anything at all.
basisbit
@basisbit
indeed, my Microsoft partner account and the connected developer account are currently in a broken state. Support wasn't able to fix it adhoc, so they created a ticket for it to get fixed %soon%
I remember writing to this blog, sadly they never answered. But from the phrasing of this article, it seems they did read my mail :)
Well actually it is not new, I wrote to them last year. But still :)

@achimmihca
I also found an article how to create songs for USDX on chip.de. Clearly, this needs a rewrite once the new USPlay with the new song editor will be released :)
Markus Böhning
@bohning
Nice, didn’t know either of the articles. The Chip article is from 2006, way before UltraStar Creator was available =)

hello
im sorry is this is the wrong place to ask
but how do i assign microphones to players?
achimmihca
@achimmihca
Mic assingment is automatic. If there is only one player and one mic, then no assingment is needed.
Otherwise the first unassigned mic is choosen when selecting a player after song select. Turn player checkbox off and on again to change mic assingment.
You are not the first who asks this. Should probably add some hint in-game
Maybe it can be made more obvious when implementing #297

Hey btw I am curious how scoring in ultrastar works. Is it just points if you hit a note or is there some multiplier?
achimmihca
@achimmihca
Just linear points. 10_000 total, golden twice as much as normal notes, and some points for "perfect" phrases. That's it
Nico Franke
@ZerNico
Ahh thx alot :D
A perfect phrase is if you sing the whole sentence correctly, right?
achimmihca
@achimmihca
95% is enough for perfect. If you see "perfect" rating popup, then it counts
