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.

Thankyou

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 :)

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
