Download - UltraStar
The original version of UltraStar is only available for Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP. But in the meantime, a promising version was created for Linux:
UltraStar - Next Generation
Deluxe Version 1.00 [Recommended]
This mod UltraStar is absolutely fantastic! UltraStar 0.5.3 does not stand a chance against it. Apart from many eye-catching details, the mod includes the possibility to "jump" to individual songs in the list and search for a given song and it has a great party mode.
UltraStar Deluxe 1.00
Version 0.5.3 [Not recommended]
This version finally includes line bonus for which we have been waiting for a while as well as simple microphone echo, slightly improved managing of soundcards and extended support of themes. However, we cannot recommend it due to the firewall bug and the bad sound quality. This may not be the same for everybody.
Version 0.5.2 [Recommended]
Fortunately, this version starts without requiring an internet connection. Voice recognition has been improved and first tests show a significant improvement (notably for deep voices).
Some bugs were removed, as always. The skin system was improved and now UltraStar searches for updates on the internet when it is started.
Please note: If you do not allow UltraStar to access the internet (e.g. by blocking it with the firewall), it will not start at all!!!
Furthermore, you can now define a default directory for the song editor (you do not have to write the entire path by hand anymore). In order to do this, you have to edit the config.ini and add the section [Path] with Songs=path below.
Finally, you can take screenshots of your score and the top5 screen by pressing the PrintScreen key. You will find the files in the subdirectory "Screenshots".
Improved graphics, more options and faster loading are the new features of this version. Additionally, it has an installer at last. There are also rumors that grouping your songs in folders is possible but we have not had the time yet to confirm this statement.
This version includes golden notes, a top 5 list and less memory usage.
In Version 0.4.1 you can play the 2-player mode without a second soundcard. But you need an adapter which separates the stereo channel into two mono channels so that each player can get a mono channel.
2-player mode included!!!
Major changes include support for screen resolution of 1024x768 and a half-finished support for skins.
This version will only be of interest to you if you create songs yourself. Players will be disappointed because it still contains a bug of version 0.3.2. Otherwise, there is no difference to version 0.3.1.
This version can only be recommended if you want to create songs yourself. Unfortunately, not all songs work with it. A simple MIDI to TXT converter is included with which you can extract the necessary melody from a MIDI file. For more information go to Making Songs Yourself.
This is not the latest version of the program but most of the songs will work with it.
Spanish Mod Version 0.6.1
Interesting mod with a variety of new features, e.g. multiple players, different skins, comments while you are singing, battle modes, etc. This version includes an English language file. If you are looking for a German translation, you can find it in the forum.
