Beat Saber Custom Mapping Tutorial #1: Getting Stated
If you’re interested in creating a beat saber map, you’ve come to the right place, friend! As the resident community dance mapper, I hope this tutorial will help you get started. I’ll guide you through getting the Edit Saber program by Ikeiwa, Saving your song correctly, and Getting setup to map in the Editor. If you don’t already have the editor, go here to download it!
