If you’re a fan of Beat Saber, and if you’ve been using SideQuest to install custom tracks, then you’ll be pleased to know that the ScoreSaber beta for Quest has finally been released! Now you’ll not only be able to play Empty Threat by Chvrches on Beat Saber, but you’ll be able to compete in global leaderboards for all your favorite songs! Although we’ve had some fun mods for Beat Saber on Quest, like ones that allow you to change your actual sabers, this mod, for many, has been the holy grail, since competitive Beat Saber is a totally different Beat Saber, and is, ultimately, one of the things that really does turn it into a kind of sport. We find ourselves doing well when we play tracks we like, but we do go the extra mile when we find out how others are scoring on the same maps.
This is the one we’ve been waiting for, folks, and it’s here!
Now, it is in beta, so it’s not quite perfect yet, so there are some notes:
Known bugs are:
- Couldn’t find a way to get the friend list reliably, so, for now, the friends’ tab has been repurposed and shows your countries’ scores
- Can crash your game switching through songs too fast
- Only Standard characteristic is supported for now (no one saber or no arrows specific levels)
And, to help out, please do as Umbranox requests and report bugs in the ScoreSaber discord.
For full installation instructions, follow the instructions over at BeastSaber! Obviously, you already need to have SideQuest installed if you want to install the ScoreSaber beta. If you’re new to all this and you don’t know what SideQuest is, or how to install it, then head over to our SideQuest feature for some explanation!
As a general note, please don’t do all pirate-y on your favorite artists. Download custom levels for songs that you already own, or, if you find a custom level you really like, balance our your karma by purchasing the song itself. There’s no reason to make your favorite artists hate Beat Saber or SideQuest 🙂
