How To Install Custom Songs
SideQuest & BMBF
One of the easiest way to get going is to download SideQuest here
SideQuest is extremely easy to use and supports Windows, Mac and Linux! Think of SideQuest as the “Alternative App Store.” It also makes sideloading apps from APK’s very easy to install.
To request new features or get help with Sidequest specifically, join the SideQuest Discord here
Once you have SideQuest installed, you’ll need to install BMBF.
- Make sure to run Beat Saber UNMODDED FIRST.
- Then install BMBF. Do this by dragging and dropping the BMBF APK file on the top left corner of Sidequest.
To install, simply drag it into Sidequest, then launch it from within unknown sources on your Quest. BMBF will prompt you through a couple steps and get you all setup to get started!
If you want more guidance, watch one of the fantastic tutorials here:
Follow the guide here to backup your local saved scores first before installing BMBF.
Also, installing BMBF and modding your game, Official Multiplayer as well as viewing and uploading scores on the base game leaderboards will no longer work. If you would like to play modded multiplayer, you need the mod,
Beat Together, which allows for cross-play between pc and quest and allows for custom songs to be used if both parties own said song. The mod can be found in the Beat Saber Modding Group in
#quest-mods or on the Questboard (opens new window)site.
To get leaderboards on custom songs and to be able to get Performance Points (PP) from ranked songs you need the ScoreSaber mod. This link takes you to the ScoreSaber page to set it up. Scoresaber does not replace the base game leaderboards, it only adds leaderboards for custom songs. Note: Scoresaber has NOT yet been updated for Beat saber 1.13.2.

To view BMBF on your PC or Mac and manage your songs and mods there, type in your Quest’s IP address along with :50000 at the end. Example:
To find your Quest’s IP, you can look at the top of Sidequest.
