We’ve had rhythm game map converters before, but… they usually aren’t very good. The first full-length custom song ever for Beat Saber was actually the output of a test osu! to Beat Saber converter, but… the map was pretty bad. Converters are usually more useful as tools for mappers to gain a solid starting point to further map from, not for producing a map ready to play. (btw, if you don’t know what osu! is, it’s one of the largest rhythm games with millions of players and a massive mapping community)
Zerny and October changed what can be expected from a converted map after spending months building the ultimate osu! to Audica converter
Instead of trying to map things 1:1 between the two games, Zerny created and applied some very complex algorithms to how parts of a map are translated. The results are absolutely amazing!
In fact, I let a couple regular Audica players play a 100% converted osu! map in Audica and they couldn’t even tell that it was converted!
This is quite a game-changer for people wanting to play specific songs. There’s hundreds of fantastic Audica custom songs, but a million+ osu! maps. Being able to think up about any song in the world and find a map that someone spent many hours hand mapping it is quite amazing for any rhythm game fan.
I personally have never been a huge osu! fan, but have been having an absolute blast playing hundreds of converted maps in VR with Audica.
