Beat Saber has just undergone a recent update and since the mods that enable custom songs are unofficial and community made, they tend to break whenever there is an update for the game. These updates tend to make the custom songs disappear, but we can show you how to fix all that.
When an update happens for Beat Saber it makes the mod incompatible until the mod creators make their own type of update for the account for the changes. If you are really worried about your custom songs and maps, don’t worry they are still there you just can’t see them. You just have to wait for the creators to update their software, so you can see them again.
When the creators adjust their mods, this is how you update your game:
- Download the latest version of BeatSaberModInstaller.exe version 2.1.8.
- Make sure Beat Saber is closed and launch the BeatSabeModInstaller.exe, confirm that the game’s directory is correctly selected, then install “Song Loader Plugin” and “BeatSaver Downloader.”
- If you don’t see the following step in the list, then they have no update for the mod yet and you are going to have to check back later to see if it has been updated.
- This is an optional step, but you can also update or install any other mods that are showing in the list. Run Beat Saber Mod Installer later to check for the latest plugins as they’re updated.
Once the newest update is installed you will find all your custom songs again and begin playing them right away. At this time Beat Saber on the PSVR cannot be modded to support custom songs, so this only applies to the Oculus and SteamVR versions of the game.
The developer of Beat Saber is working on an official custom song editor, but the game’s community end up beating them to the punch with the unofficial mod and it works pretty well for the game. You can browse and install new songs directly from inside of the game.
There will be new buttons on the main menu which says “BeatSaver. Here you can click and browse or download new songs which will appear in the usual song list below the official songs.
What is your favorite song to play on Beat Saber and have you tried any of the unofficial songs from mods?
