# How do I get more songs?
BeatSaver is the master repository of custom songs made by the community. Many other tools and sites enhance the experience of downloading custom songs, but this site is the source of truth.
If you download maps manually from BeatSaver, extract them into a folder and place the files in
Beat Saber/Beat Saber_Data/CustomLevels. This is the directory that the game natively reads custom maps from.
Beast Saber is a review site that aims to curate all of the songs on BeatSaver. You can also download playlists, follow mappers, find songs using advanced sorting methods and more.

The official multiplayer has not been released, but you can use the multiplayer mod by Andruzzzhka.
Here is a guide to set up the multiplayer mod.
# My game updated and now none of my mods are working!
Each time the game updates it is possible (and very likely) that your existing will stop working and need to be updated.
The devs realized this, so when the game updates and you run it for the first time, everything in the
Plugins folder is moved into the
Incompatible Plugins folder. Leave those plugins in there!
To get mods back, simply run the installer again.
The BeatMods repository only includes mods that have been confirmed to work on the latest version of the game!

# How does the scoring system work in Beat Saber? How does global ranking work?
We have sections on the grips and tricks page dedicated to the scoring and ranking systems, check them out!
# My menus are blank and I have nothing to click on!
If the main window in your game is blank, your save file likely got corrupted.
To fix it, navigate to:
Delete or rename the Beat Saber folder to something else. When you re-enter the game, it'll recreate the save file and should load the main menu properly.
