What is the .CRS File Extension?

.CRS File Extension Description:

StepMania is a rhythm and dance game featuring 3D graphics, a step editor, and a dance pad support. It has been originally designed as a simulator of the Dance, Dance Revolution series and since then has progressed into an extensible rhythm game engine with the ability to support a wide range of rhythm-based game types.

The CRS file extension defines all the courses used in the StepMania program. There are three modes that can be used in tandem with these files. These include:

付he Non-stop mode;

付he Oni or Challenge mode;

病nd the Endless mode.

The Non-stop mode is utilized when both "no number of LIVES tag" and "number of REPEAT is OFF" appear. As for the Oni mode, it is used when "number of LIVES tag" and "number of REPEAT is OFF" appear. The Endless mode, on the other hand, is used when "number of REPEAT is ON" appears.

Files with the .crs extension usually contain the following:

付he header with the name of the course;

付he LIVES data, which is an integer between 0 and 10;

付he REPEAT data, which answers the question "start over the last stage?" with Yes or No;

病nd the SONG data, which can use the fixed songs, random songs, random songs with group, best players song, and the worst players song.

Files with the .crs extension can usually contain both OGG and MP3 music files. However, a dance game containing thousands of songs (In the Groove) can only read OGG files for PC/Mac. It lets you import and play songs from StepMania, so MP3 files have to be converted to OGG files before they can be used with In the Groove. After conversion, MP3 files have to be deleted to avoid confusion. You also need to reload all the songs in the files with the .crs file extension so StepMania can see the new OGG files.

A wide variety of files with the .crs extension are downloadable from the Internet. These include an array of CRS files ranging from simple to difficult mode courses. Before download, their info page, course graphics, difficulty levels, and the songs that need to be installed in order to play the files in StepMania can be viewed.

After download, files with the .crs extension are automatically extracted to the Courses directory, keeping them organized within StepMania. All songs required to play the downloaded files with the .crs extension have to be copied in the Songs directory of the StepMania folder. In order to play the file, StepMania has to be executed in Nonstop Mode, and this also automatically updates the Course list.
