    I like the game dsdsr, so I decided to use gorilla to make some songs for it. I tested the songs in stepmania first and they all worked. Then I put them on my ds. In dsdsr they show up, but when you click them, there are no difficulties to chose from. All the other songs work. Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong?

    Maybe you can look at the sm files in a text editor (I remember something like that) and compare the files. There might be something in there since I don't know if there is still support for it.

    I tried that, but I couldn't figure out what it was. Am I allowed to upload the files here, as long as they don't have the mp3 with them?

    I'm pretty sure you can upload them, since they would be sm files that you created, therefore its at your own volition to release your stuff.

    I'm not sure if this will work (can't test it since I don't have a working ds anymore -_-"), but you can try it. I just rearranged some stuff to make it look like a different sm file that I have. Hopefully it will work, but I'm not counting on it (since I didn't change anything that seemed important).

    It didn't work, you still can't select difficulties. Do you know which part of the file is the one that tells games(suchs as stepmania) what diffs are available? Stepmania has no trouble playing it, so I wonder why DSDSR does.

    Maybe try getting an sm file that works and just change the stuff that is needed and try that file out.

    But, the .sm's that I dled from stepmania.com all work on dsdsr and stepmania. The customs also work in stepmania. Its dsdsr, not the .sm's that's faulty. Do you know the dsdsr website?

    xD I should think that searching for gorillas would show pictures of gorillas. I'm going to try replacing an original .sm file's data (an sm that I can recall working) and swap it with your data. Edit the link in a little bit (eating first xD)

    where each album is just a grouping (32 songs max per album) and each songfolder is the folder straight from the stepmania files (so pretty much your songs folder for dsdsr should look identical to the "songs" folder in stepmania.)

    You can get songs from stepmania.com, they have alot of amatuer work.

    xD I'd actually recommend flashflashrevolution.com, they have tons and tons of .sm files (sometimes you have to search for the one with the best steps).
