# Quest Modding

# Installation

Currently there are two working tools for installing custom songs and mods on your Quest:

For new users, BeatSaberQuestInstaller may be easier to use as it handles some of the more confusing parts of modding/updating a modded game, such as restoring scores and installing adb.

# Installing with BeatSaberQuestInstaller

WARNING

Make sure you run the installer as administrator!

If you're a new user, then follow the first 3 steps in the BeatSaberQuestInstaller, then go to the utilities tab and backup your scores.

If you've previously modded Beat Saber, you also need to go there to uninstall the game, but make sure you backup BEFORE uninstalling.

Once you've done what you need, go to step 4 in the installer. After completing the steps, open BMBF from the channels tab in Oculus TV or Unknown Sources in your library.

# Installing BMBF with SideQuest

If you haven't already, download and setup SideQuest

Open SideQuest and connect your Quest to your PC. If you've previously modded Beat Saber or have scores you want to backup, go to My Apps located in the top bar of the window and find Beat Saber.

Click the cog next to it then press the BACKUP GAME DATA button, if you have a modded game you also need to uninstall it by pressing the UNINSTALL APP button.

SideQuestUninstall

You can later restore your save from the same menu, after modding.

Install the latest BMBF apks via the Install APK from folder button shown below.

Once they've successfully installed, make sure you have the latest version of Beat Saber installed and unmodded.

WARNING

Run Beat Saber once and close it before modding!

After running Beat Saber once, open BMBF from Oculus TV channels tab or Unknown Sources in your library. Follow each step exactly as you're told, and then you should be see bsaber.com. This is where you can download any custom songs available.

# Restoring save data

# Restoring from BeatSaberQuestInstaller

Make sure you've run the game modded once, then go to the UTILITIES tab in the BeatSaberQuestInstaller and press the TRANSFER SCORES button. You can also do this from step 4 in the installer.

# Restoring from SideQuest

Go back to the same menu you used to backup your data and click the OPEN BACKUPS button. From there, find your newest backup folder, open it, and delete the Mods folder (this is to prevent potentially old or incompatible mods from breaking your game).

Afterwards, go back to the menu and press the circular arrows located beside your latest backup. This is to restore your scores. The button is highlighted in the image here.

# Installing mods from your PC

WARNING

Make sure your quest and PC are on the same network!

Open BMBF in your Quest and go to the Tools tab, there you should see a web address and a version number similar to what's show below.

ip

On your PC, open your browser and type the address into the search bar.

You should be greeted with this screen below.

bmbfweb

Now just drag any Quest compatible mods into the upload box and sync. If the mod was originally made for an older version, then it won't automatically enable. To enable an old mod, go to the Mods tab and enable it from there.

If you want to use the same method of downloading songs as you do in BMBF in your Quest, just replace upload in the URL with browser.
