Continuous integration Build Status Build status


From Packages

For those that do not wish to compile the game on their own and use a binary right away, be aware of the following issues:

  • Windows users are expected to have installed the Microsoft Visual C++ x86 Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 prior to running the game. For those on a 64-bit operating system, grab the x64 redistributable as well. Windows 7 is the minimum supported version.
  • Mac OS X users need to have Mac OS X 10.6.8 or higher to run StepMania.
  • Linux users should receive all they need from the package manager of their choice.

From Source

StepMania can be compiled using CMake. More information about using CMake can be found in both the Build directory and CMake's documentation.

  1. Sell the game with the included songs
  2. Claim to have created the engine yourself or remove the credits
  3. Not provide source code for any build which differs from any official release which includes MP3 support.
