This project looks interesting. Good luck on it! Are there similar applications that use these file formats, or did you create them yourself? i.e. will we have to make our own files? --Charlatan 02:12, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

For now, in most of cases removing blank lines and id tags from .lrc files and renaming them to .kii or ki2 works perfectly. This lyrics files are easy to find on the Internet and a lot of websites allow you to download them. This compatibility will be improved in future versions so it could read directly regular .lrc files. Then 'kii' and 'ki2' files could be compressed 'song + lyrics' files. Thanks for the interest. --Pedrocrespo 10:36, 14 July 2009 (UTC)


This may be a bit of a stretch, but what about the possibility of being able to use MP3+G karaoke songs? It's one of the more popular karaoke formats and it would be great to be able to have instant access to such a large collection of karaoke songs. However, since the .cdg files that accompany the .mp3 files are "plain" graphics and not text, there'd be no feasible automatic conversion method (that I know of) if one had to go that route. --Mscdex 23:30, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

There's already a MP3+G player made by Kriogen some time ago. Look for it in Google. Since Kriogen is a Spanish coder too, maybe we could collaborate in the future to unify our software. --Pedrocrespo 10:43, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

KAR Files

How about supporting KAR files which are MIDI files with lyrics built in them, I have a whole bunch of them --Elisherer 17:45, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

You're right. And now it is possible since Kar files are easily transformable to Ultrastar files. Anyways it is a possible feature for future releases since I have a lot (+30000) of kar files too and I want them to be more useful!--Pedrocrespo 11:20, 3 September 2009 (UTC)


could you add support for reading midi files? that way we can use EOF (Editor On Fire) Calthephenom 20:05, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Midi files would be supported too if finally I decide to implement .kar support, but there are some preferent issues to improve and features to implement before starting with it.--Pedrocrespo 00:02, 4 September 2009 (UTC) ok , hopefully in 0.0.6? Calthephenom 04:24, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

In order to play midi you will need a patch set because i don't think you can control the sequencer of the Wii's sound card (drums,piano, etc...) [you can find an implementation at] --Elisherer 11:44, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

you can try to work something off of the GOF source, since it uses midis Calthephenom 21:16, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
