But why?

StepMania is a very old rhythm game by now, and over the span of two decades and counting, its community has produced an incomprehensible amount of content for the game, mostly in the form of simfiles, AKA song charts. Asides from the audio and charts themselves, StepMania files also usually include three images: one being the "logo" of the simfile author, and the other being a banner image displayed in the song selector, and a background image, or even a video, which is displayed during play. Because of this format, the simfiles themselves document the history of the game and its community. Many simfiles and their included assets contain references to community happenings, events, in-jokes, memes, drama, famous players, and more. Once you start digging into some older simfile packs, with the help of the Wayback Machine, the FFR forums, and some clever google searching, there is an entire "lore" to be discovered about this game.

Also, its just a really solid game. Free and open source, customizable, tight-knit community, and decades worth of content to entertain you.

Fair warning, if you find mid-00's edgy Internet/4chan humor offensive, you're better off sticking to the newer song packs.

Are you interested, but don't know where to start? Here's a good starting point, and a relatively well known but very old meme:

    use either cdxtract (which Just Works (TM) but is pretty janky and ancient) or use awave studio (which works for 99% of formats though i've had it refuse to open 1 or 2 roland cds which cdxtract read just fine)

    No! It isn't. This is nothing but a silly compilation of varied, stolen content from various enterprises... You're not emulating anything! You're stealing it... You're not a gamer, but a shameless thief

    No! No! No! People from nintendia... Don't do it. Don't even think about. Instead, let's think about all these hours of hard work by Nintendo and their hard workers that make Nintendo existence possible... Buy their games, don't stole it!
