<!-- TITLE: FAQ --> <!-- SUBTITLE: Frequently Asked Questions! --> # FAQ ## I just got the game, how do I get started? Check out our [beginner's guide](beginners-guide)! ## How do I get more songs? > [Beatsaver](https://www.beatsaver.com) 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. ### BeastSaber [Beast Saber](https://www.bsaber.com) 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. ### Song Management Tools The following are programs to be used on the desktop to help you download custom songs, with some other features as well. * [Beat Saber Dowloader](https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QWedF77hWYbqcigIWa2UcpXlhqGTjwR1/view) a map downloader by Sturdyfool0. * [BeatDrop](https://bsaber.com/beatdrop/) allows you to download songs, create playlists, and also serves as a mod installer, by StarGazer1258. * [BeatList](https://github.com/Alaanor/beatlist) is an app to manage playlist and beatmaps, by Alaanor. ## How do I install playlists? Place the playlist file into `Beat Saber/Playlists` and select it in-game, then hit download. You can create playlists using one of the programs above. ## How do I make my own custom levels? See [mapping](../mapping)! ## How do I load plugins that aren't in the Mod Installer? You can then add/delete other mods in the following directory: `.dll` plugins go in the directory: | | | | --- | --- | | Steam | `steamapps\common\Beat Saber\Plugins` | | Oculus | `hyperbolic-magnetism-beat-saber\Plugins` | Note that you'll still need BSIPA to inject mods into the game, as well as the mod's dependencies. Installers handle this for you, so take care not to miss anything if you're installing mods manually! ## How does the multiplayer mod work? 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: https://bs.assistant.moe/Multiplayer/ ## 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! If you're confused by any of this, visit [Beginners Guide](beginners-guide). ## How does the scoring system work in Beat Saber? How does global ranking work? We have sections on the [grips and tricks](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: `%AppData%\..\LocalLow\Hyperbolic Magnetism` 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. ## How did you run the invitational (2018) stream?
