Download Wrapper UltraStar Deluxe - karaoke (like PS singstar) 1.0

- - - - - Please vote for the Quality of this Port / Wrapper, not for the Game or Application!

!!! FEEDBACK PLEASE - I'm currently experiencing on my sisters computer, that the port does not work (nor do other striped down ones, whereas others work)

UltraStar Deluxe is a free OpenSource karaoke game for your PC. The gameplay experience is similar to that of commercial product SingStar™ by Sony Computer Entertainment, which is exclusively available for the Playstation®. Unlike SingStar™, however, UltraStar Deluxe allows users to create their own songs.
By publishing the sourcecode, we’ve enabled you to customize the game completly to your heart’s content, desires and particular needs.
Especially you are allowed to modify the product as you wish.

Create your own themes or download content from the community, such as plugins, free songs or code patches for extended features.

In party mode it allows up to twelve players to sing along to your favorite music in order to score points, depending on the pitch of the voice and the rhythm of singing.

For UltraStar Deluxe to work you do not even have to buy expensive DVDs with not so many songs you really like, instead just buy DRM free audio files or use your album/cd music you already own and stored on your personal computer.

Just try out. Completly free with more than 10.000+ songs already available.

Personal Notes:
I decided to port the windows version of UltraStar Deluxe karaoke software rather than using the Mac native version because of the following issues:
- no multitasking in fullscreen mode (you can't leave the app without quitting) --- that's serious!
- no Lion-fullscreen --- I really like it...
- no virtualizer --- just design, but as Apple teaches us it does matter
- no editor to add your own songs (although I did not test it) --- some of you may like it

My System Specs:
- OS:    Mac OS X 10.8.5
- CPU: Core 2 Duo @ 2,33 GHz
- RAM: 3 GB
- Video:    ATI X1600 Mobility 256MB
- Disk Space:   only 86,2MB (!!! - Mac-native version also needs 76.8MB)

Known Issues:
You can't quit the game while in username/song selection menu.
Inside the "UltraStar Deluxe.app" a database file (cover.db) is created which may grow to several hundred MB. Same on Windows.
To enter fullscreen with a keyboard shortcut you will need ctrl+alt+cmd+F instead of the default one.
The app does not bounce/appear in the Dock until a window has opened (can't be fixed by now).

Extract the downloaded file and move the game to whatever directory you want.
Drop original singstar or UltraStar songs* to the UltraStar Deluxe folder inside your user's Music folder.
(Location may be edited by manually changing the value inside config in - "UltraStar Deluxe.app/Contents/Resources/drive_c/UltraStar Deluxe/")
You may change various settings within the game (themes, colors, etc).

*a good place to find songs is the pirate bay
