Why is osu! mod here is under-developed?

  • Pesets's osu!droid does the job already. There is no reason for the developer to continue when there is a port for osu! that does better.

Can it play osu!mania songs?

  • No. It can only play:-
    • StepMania 3.9 ".sm" format
    • Dance With Intensity v2.50.00 ".dwi" format
    • osu! ".osu" format.


  • Autoplay can completely ignore the rule and always get Marvelous and OK even when the hitcircles stray to the invisible end of the playfield
