StepMania 5 Theme Update

Last Updated: 2014/01/07

Site Notes

  • All dates on this site are in Year/Month/Day format.
  • All themes on this site are meant to run on StepMania 5. Whether or not that means the current version of StepMania 5 is dependent on how much has changed. Hopefully not much.
  • I typically know more information about themes I'm working on, compared to themes I'm not. This mainly manifests itself in the development sections.
    • Extended point: I created SOMS2, but am unsure if it will ever see a public release, for various reasons I won't bore you with here.
  • I try to be everywhere and see everything, but for some reason or another, I am unable to know about every possible theme in development for StepMania.


2014/01/07 - 2014 get.

2014 is here, and with it, some stuff.

New Previews/Upcoming Themes

  • I ended up releasing an early version of foonmix before January 1st after all, despite the fact that my computer decided it was a great time to shit the bed.
  • There's going to be a third Trotmania for whatever reason.

I haven't been fully keeping up with things, so it's likely I'm missing something. Shoot me a message on twitter @ssc_kki if you have info on themes I don't know about.

2013/10/22 - Finally, an update.

After more than a year of not updating this site (or being involved with StepMania), I decided to update this site once again.


The primary change is that themes are separated into strict sections, compared to the previous site's background color change. The unreleased themes have been split up into ones where I know work is still being done and ones where I have no idea if development is active. If you know a theme is still being worked on, please contact me on twitter (@ssc_kki).

At some point, I plan on going a little more in-depth with the themes, giving each one a proper description and pictures. It all depends on if I find a way to make a system that's easily updated.

Theme Updates

  • Added Cyberia Style 8 -solid-.
  • Added Kuro Project, a Touhou-themed default hack released a year ago.
  • Added Delta NEX, a hack of luizsan's Delta.
  • Default More updated to v1.415, but sadly, CL's site no longer works.
  • O2Mania EX updated to v0.69, same Facebook link as before.
  • DDR 5th Mix updated to r6 a few months ago.
  • PROJEKTXV was updated to r5 around the same time as DDR 5th.
  • ultralight was updated to r12.
  • Added xMAx's Pump it Up Fiesta EX theme, but couldn't find credit.
  • Added Alisson's Pump it Up Fiesta EX theme, but couldn't find a release date.

New Previews

  • holidia released another video of DanceDanceRevolution (1st ReMIX) on 2013/09/14, but I didn't add it to the entry because it's getting long as it is.
  • Added some DDR 2013 theme I saw on YouTube.
  • Added Alisson's Pump it Up Fiesta 2 theme, which will be released at some point in the future, assuming Andamiro releases a new Pump it Up game for 2014.
  • Trolled YouTube for various themes and stuff. Too many to bother listing here.

End of Life

  • Default+Jacket was last updated on 2012/07/16 and is no longer maintained.
