    OpenTaiko Collab!

    As a special tradition of special events during the winter for Serenity, we have decided to shake things up a bit to reference the "Winter Updates" we released with Volume 1 and Volume 2. Thanks to a key member of the the Serenity Team, who shares their work with both OpenTaiko and OutFox Serenity, this collab managed to happen in a very quick and easy way, we're happy to be able to collaborate with another team of people who believe in open development.

    As for how the collab works, we have decided to share 5 songs from each of our collections with the other game, meaning: OpenTaiko gets 5 songs from OutFox Serenity and OutFox Serenity gets 5 songs from OpenTaiko. The songs were selected by vote for each team. Here's the list:

    OpenTaiko Gets

    Song Name Author
    B-Happy - Ace of Beat
    Eradication of Light - Mintorment
    brokenHeart resurrection estele - RILEY
    What Year Is This - Sevish
    Relaxation Piece of Conclusion - Zenth

    Both OpenTaiko and OutFox Serenity have notified and asked the song authors if they agreed with the sharing of their songs. We hope to continue working with OpenTaiko as a way to connect both communities and bring more collabs in the future, please check out OpenTaiko with the links below:

    New Songs

    FunkBoi (by SenPi)

    ΣxilƎ (By mrcool909090)

    ReCollapse (By H888 (H5 + DashyDesu))

    Liar Prison (By SiLiS ft. Karin Natsuki)

    RUiNED GLORY (By Sukima Altera)

    Songs added from OpenTaiko to OutFox Serenity are licensed under the OpenTaiko Default License, check the song folder for the license file.

    But that's not all, while submission will open with 5 new songs, an additional song is planned to be added later which will be added to both OpenTaiko and OutFox Serenity, meaning we'll be adding a total of 6 songs this season alone, we hope those songs ignite the vision of an epic chart for you to make and make everyone play and set their scores.

    Taiko charts both for songs added to Serenity and from Serenity will be available with the Winter Season, meaning you'll have lots of taiko charts to test and play right away!

    Special Message from Colin (OPTK and Serenity Team Member)

    Hi! This is Colin from the Serenity Team. As you may (or may not) know, I am also a member of the OpenTaiko charting team. Because of my unique position, I was able to initiate a special collaboration between Project OutFox: Serenity and OpenTaiko. My main goal was to highlight all of the talented artists in both the Taiko and Stepmania communities, and I hope that I fufilled my role well! However, I could not have done this alone! Thank you to Moru Zerinho6 for working closely with me (despite my very, very limited knowledge about licensing), Lirodon for the awesome trailer, the Serenity team for helping select songs to add into the game, all of the immensely talented charters who brought these songs to life in-game, and the development teams of both OpenTaiko and Project OutFox for making this possible! I hope everyone will enjoy all of these new songs and charts, and send your love to their respective artists! Happy drumming!

    Join the Serenity Team!

    Are you knowledgeable and have some free time to lend a hand in making Serenity better? We're searching for individuals to contribute to the following areas:

    • Creation of SSC templates for upcoming songs: This involves adding essential metadata to SSC like credits and tempo changes, but not actually creating the chart.
    • Equalization of Audio: We need help balancing the loudness of future songs, so they don't sound too different from other Serenity songs.
    • Chart/Templates Development for any mode: You can start developing charts early for your favorite mode and also aid us in selecting future songs.
    • Quality Check: Help us moderate the quality of charts submitted to OutFox Serenity. Having different opinions from people who know how to create content will improve the pack.
    • Content Moderation: Keep in check with our volume spreadsheet and new song submission.
    • Asset Creation: Help us by creating images and or video for OutFox Serenity.

    Please note that like Project OutFox itself, OutFox Serenity is not for profit and has no monetary gains. We dedicate our free time to make a pack available for the community as a hobby. If you decide to join the team, we will respect your time and support you when possible, but we also expect your care and cooperation with the project.

    If you feel like helping us then join the Discord Server and mention any of the moderators, it can be in private too!

    Temporary Pack

    As a new OutFox Serenity season comes, the past season gets a temporary pack release, this is meant for people to playtest charts and their content to check if everything so far is the way it should be.

    You can download the temporary pack here.

  • A new season comes for OutFox Serenity Volume 3, we're going from Summer to Fall.


    Song Artist Suggestion

    We have recently put out a form asking what you think about some proposed serenity plans and the future, One of the questions in specific was about how you would feel about an option to suggest Artists for us to contact, the response was extremely positive and so we went ahead and created a form where you can do exactly that! You can find it here: OutFox Serenity Song Suggestion Page, you might notice the text field to talk about the background of the artist, we want you to use that space to talk about how you view that artist and how you think their song can fit with OutFox Serenity, which modes might like it a lot or if you think it would just be cool, don't hold back on sharing what you think as we'll analyze every suggestion.

    We have also added a new button inside the serenity page to suggest song authors!


    Simfile Templates

    Right now you're required to join our Discord Server to get simfile templates (or our GitHub Repository, GitHub isn't meant to be a very user-friendly interface however for non-programmers.), we will be changing that soon by adding a page where you'll be able to download templates directly from our website, we will keep you updated with a new blogpost when that happens.

    Volume 3 Temporary Pack

    The temporary pack for volume has been updated once again, as a reminder, temporary packs are not a release version but are instead meant to be used to test and try charting before the release at the end of season 4. Temporary packs might include unfinished content or even a lack of content such as art and charts.

    Download the Volume 3 Season 2 Temporary Pack here.

    The user register form has been updated not to have music-specific fields.

    "Content" pages have been moved to OutFox Wiki where you can see the History, User Profiles, and Volume Resumes of OutFox Serenity.

    We plan to create a new page that will allow users to download simfile templates without joining our Discord Server.

  • OutFox Serenity


    We're happy to announce that OutFox Serenity Volume 2 Winter Update just released, the second winter update since volume 1, we thank every single contributor for making the project go this far and this big.

    With the launch of this volume, OutFox Serenity will have a total of 560 charts available to play, go ahead and check the OutFox Serenity Page for more info!

    A place to remember

    With OutFox Serenity always growing, so is the number of artists for charts, graphics, and songs, OutFox Serenity was always about the contribution to the community and making your name.

    Because of that, we have started working on something where people will be able to view information about all submissions you and others have made, when possible, we will also include your socials so more people can follow your work elsewhere.

    We're not ready to share more details than that as the project just recently began, but rest assured that your contributions will be documented.

    What now

    As some of you might know, OutFox Serenity Volume 3 has already been in the works for quite some time given how it will have a different development period compared to how we have done it in the past, we're also very close to its reveal it is just a few days away.

    With this announcement, a new category should be available, on OutFox Discord Server, for OutFox Serenity, with a better way to submit content, discuss rates/chart creation, and how find our spreadsheets. We have also updated our outfox serenity guidelines page with new rules and an easier way to register yourself/submit music.

    Keep your attention on any of our socials so you don't lose the Volume 3 announcement!

    New Projects

    Peters-Noteskins (Tiny-Foxes Fork)

    This is a fork of MegaSphere/Pete-Lawrence's StepMania noteskins repository. The focus of this fork is to focus on adding Project OutFox-optimized versions of its StepMania 5.x noteskins, namely by:

    • Adjusting their code to adhere to its developers' best practices for Lua code style (i.e. removing use of cmd blocks, replacing semicolons with commas, etc.)
    • Adjusting their code to support Project OutFox's Lua timing system (namely, recognizing judgements beyond W1, as well as using a different method to color the note explosion sprite in order to support judgement colors defined by themes)
    • Adding sprites for OutFox-specific notes such as lift holds and mine holds.


    OpenSMO but updated...TO GO EVEN FURTHER BEYOND! ~ Jous


    Translation Helper for Project OutFox

    This program compares a source and target language file, to check for missing keys.


    This repo hosts the data files for combo number graphics made by MattMayuga, with some of them here to accompany the respective judgefonts.

    Project Updates








    NEW Theme colors! You can now choose between several (about 25 at the moment?) different color schemes! Highly requested by the community.

    NEW Background brightness! Allows you to dim the image in the background.

    NEW Theme provided judgments and toasties! I included a few to make the theme more theme-like.

    NEW Judgment animation toggles! You can turn on or off animations on judgments if you find them distracting.

    Fixed anomalies in Player Options when using only Player 2

    Fixed course mode breaking in song wheel (still unstable in gameplay, work in progress)

    Added higher-quality grade indicators in the evaluation screen

    Various stability and bug fixes


    That's it for now, see you next time!

  • OutFox Serenity

    Hello everyone!

    The testing weeks for OutFox Serenity Volume 2 just finished, thanks a lot to everyone who contributed, be sure to take your well-deserved rest as the pack releases with Project OutFox Alpha V.

    It has been some time since the start of Volume 2, since then, we had much time to request feedback and take decisions about the future of Serenity and how to better manage the space in which submissions are made, this blogpost will share important information about what we want to do in the future, how/why we decided such things, and how we expect it to benefit you as a player or as a Serenity Contributor.

    Development Time & Submission Space

    With Volume 2, we decided to give more time than usual for contributors to make graphics and charts, we took at face value the number of charts that were made for Volume 1 and how much time everyone had, it wasn't a good idea, many contributors shared their sentiment about waiting till the end to see what others wanted to make and the high timeframe removed some motivation, however, that wasn't all.

    If you aren't a member of our Discord Community, a key decision was made before Volume 2 that made OutFox Serenity a separate server from Project OutFox, this meant that everyone who wanted to contribute to OutFox Serenity would be required to join another server, the reason for such decision was to remove channels and roles from the main server to clear channel navigation and prepare for "plans". After some time, we noticed that fewer people would participate for lack of visibility, a member who joined our main server had no way of knowing that OutFox Serenity was even a thing, while good things came from having a different server, it only hurt the project.

    With that in mind, here are our plans for the future:

    • The next volume, OutFox Serenity Volume 2 Winter Update, will have a timeframe of around 3 months open for graphics and chart contribution. (Not including testing weeks)
    • With OutFox Serenity Volume 3, we will bring back the serenity channels to Project OutFox main server and archive the separate server. (No content will be lost)

    As to how we think this will help:

    • Our latest feedback request showed that many contributors see a 3-month timeframe as the perfect time to produce content.
    • Having the Serenity channels back to our main server will instantly open the visibility to more than 1800 users, it will also help Project OutFox Moderation Team not have to take care of two servers.

    OutFox Serenity Volume 2 Winter Update

    As you have read above, our next volume will be another Winter Update (or OutFox Serenity Volume 2.5 for some), some might remember that we planned to release 2 big packs this year, but we decided to move that content for something different.

    We won't reveal the submission start date as we want contributors to take their time without having to worry about Serenity.

    Just like Volume 1 Winter Update, Volume 2 Winter Update will add a small number of songs (3 songs) to focus more on adding charts for the past large bulk of new songs.

    OutFox Serenity Volume 3

    Volume 3 will be a different from other volumes in every way and will also redefine Serenity works, taking together feedback from the community and some crazy ideas we had.


    Many members shared their interest in Serenity "Seasons" and we always listened to such feedback and decided to take that to the test, here's how Seasons will work:

    • There's no upper limit, you can release updates to a Season even after it has been "released".
    • Each Season comes with 3 songs, they'll be released with a base SSC template, and templates for specific modes will be released when ready.
    • Serenity Volumes will get a new patch at the start of every month after it was revealed.
    • Each Season will add its content into their Volume folder, meaning all 4 seasons of Volume 3 will be added to "OutFox Serenity Volume 3".
    • Each Season will have its trailer of selected songs "jukebox style", but a volume release trailer won't be made anymore.
    • Seasons will follow Meteorological Seasons timing, which means:
      • Spring Season will release 3 new songs on 01/03.
      • Summer Season will release 3 new songs on 01/06.
      • Fall Season will release 3 new songs on 01/09.
      • Winter Season will release 3 new songs on 01/12.

    Having a constant flux of songs will help make the project feel more active, the small number of songs should give a healthy amount of charts for each and each year will close as if we had launched a big pack with 12 songs. It is important to note that we will allow songs to be released without song-specific graphics (which will fall back on their Volume specific Background/Banner/Jacket).

    OutFox Serenity Volume is planned to take place in 2023, expect more details to be shared later.

    Song License

    It is the main objective for OutFox Serenity to make a legal, safe, and full of content pack, this means that you must be allowed to play any chart you want, be it in public at a cab, streaming on Youtube/Twitch, or just having a time.

    The majority of songs included with OutFox Serenity use CC-BY licenses, which grants enough rights to make both the artist and player safe, however, you might have noticed that not all of them are like that and the more popular OutFox Serenity gets, the more non-CC-BY music submissions we get, we came with the following conclusion:

    ARR (All Rights Reserved) music submissions will be accepted by everyone as long we the artist agrees not to strike or go after anyone who streams/records/plays a chart that includes the Artist's song if played from Project OutFox or Project OutFox related products. We will update our submission and guidelines page to make it clear that if one submits music with such a license, you'll have agreed with such rules, otherwise your content will be removed and future submissions will not be accepted.


    Now with the Tiny-Foxes news, it has been quite some time since our last blogpost as Project OutFox is working to get Alpha V out with new themes and features for Tiny-Foxes members to develop, but that hasn't stopped new ideas from being created.

    New Projects


    A project which allows Project OutFox translators to separate each .ini section into its file.



    Created by jose1711, OutFox-sk is a repository that hosts a Slovak translation of Project OutFox!


    Repository project which hosts noteskins of Daniel Rotwind for Project Outfox.


    This is a modification of the legacy theme from StepMania 5.0.x to be used as a theming playground of sorts trying to come up with something I personally feel proud of.

    Project Updates

    • Added new variants for existing judgefonts.

    Here's an image to showcase how Side Stars OutFox looks:


    Superuser Got a new release, Superuser v1.3.0!

    it's been 84 years...

    Sorry for the long pause on releases! I've been hard at work implementing a lot of things, including a Lua wheel! Big thanks to @Jousway for creating the wheels in the TF_Wheels repo as well as giving lots of help with mine!

    • Scrolling through the music wheel should be much smoother now.

    This new wheel is VERY different from what you're used to. It's not just one wheel either, it's two!

    • Group and song selection is now done through separate wheels.

    You may notice the little colorful chocolate pips on each song. It's a quick way to glance at what charts a song has.

    • "Chart pips" have been added to song panels in the song wheel.

    Not only that, but the group wheel has some neat stuff, too! People looking through packs can now see a short list of artists with songs in it!

    • Artist list, song count, and group banner are viewable on the group wheel.

    And finally, because this new wheel style is weird and confusing and scary, there's instructions on screen to help you through it.

    • Control information is presented on the song wheel and difficulty selection.

    ...oh right.

    • Difficulty selection is separated from song wheel.

    That's about all I have to summarize, be sure to check the commits and compare for more detailed changes!

    See you soon <3

    Project OutFox Steam Workshop

    As many of you might know, Project OutFox will soon come to Steam, and Steam Workshop will be supported, this does not mean Tiny-Foxes will stop being supported, we're still in talks about it but Tiny-Foxes projects added into Steam Workshop will be considered semi-official and secure, this is important as moderation/license requirement will be taken seriously.

    That's it for now, see you next time!

  • We're happy to announce big and fresh news to our biggest community project, OutFox Serenity. Our team has been working very hard to make the future of Serenity even better and keep showcasing our community creativity, knowledge and skills, you'll not want to miss it.

    Serenity Volume 2

    The next major version of Serenity has finally come! As a reminder, since Volume 1 Winter Update all Serenity-related development has been moved to it's own dedicated Serenity server. For Volume 2, 10 new songs from a variety of genres have been chosen to reflect the even bigger number of game modes now available on OutFox compared to when Serenity was created. Here's the list:


    chop chop

    Support via Bandcamp. "chop chop" is also featured on RaoulWB's own game, Fech The Ferret, go check it out!


    Support via Bandcamp.


    Into My Dream

    Bounded Quietude


    Neutralize (PTB10 MIX)


    Technological ≠ Emotional


    Serenity Vol 2 Status Sheet

    In order to facilitate organizing things and communication it's crucial to let other people know what you're working on. With this in mind, make of use this THIS SPREADSHEET to keep track of how development for Serenity Vol 2 is going. Also, be sure to first join our Serenity Discord Server to have a quick and directly channel to talk, share ideas and feedback with other members and quickly get the latest info first hand as soon as possible.

    Serenity Playlist

    To accommodate for songs that are not already publicly available on streaming platforms like YouTube, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, Deezer, etc. we decided to create our Serenity Playlist where you'll find the in-game cut of every song featured since Volume 1. There's links for full/extended versions, ways to support and artists' socials inside each video description for those interested. Check them out here:


    Shortly after the Volume 1 launch we released a legacy version for use with older versions of StepMania 5, such as 5.0.12, 5.1 and some of its forks. We felt this was an important thing to do for our first launch, but after evaluating our analytics data it's clear not many people are interested in it. Moving forward, we have no plans to release more legacy packs that target those versions. One of Serenity's goals is to showcase and take advantage of OutFox's new features and gamemodes, including fixes and changes made to already existing modes. Naturally, to fully experience and enjoy it, it's always recommended to use the latest OutFox version available.

    Unfortunately, retrofitting Serenity content to create legacy versions is not an easy task. It takes a considerable amount of time and effort to troubleshoot and validate everything. First, all content made for new modes and styles has to be outright removed. Then, we have to manually check all remaining charts for note types, gimmicks, etc that only work on OutFox (which may not behave correctly or cause crashes on 5.x) and figure out what's the best course of action: edit the charts to make them playable, possibly taking away what the original creators envisioned for it, or simply remove those?

    That being said, those who may still want to play Serenity on legacy SM setups anyway at their discretion are free to fork our GitHub repository and do the required edits for their own personal use.

    Chart & Graphics Development Cycle

    Based on feedback and internal discussion, we also decided to give the community more time than ever before. With Serenity Volume 2, we're starting 27/03 till 16/07 with chart and graphics submissions, then we'll enter testing and QA phase from 17/07 to 31/07, resulting in around 123 days of development for our community to create charts.

    After much planning, we believe this will work better for everyone involved as it alleviates the pressure of having very limited time to participate while also having to manage their own personal matters. We expect to release at least 2 Serenity packs per year, both with more than 100 days of development cycle time for charts and graphics, featuring at least 6 new songs on each pack, going up to 10 songs. Of course, this may be subject to changes based on how much submissions the community brings and other factors.

    If you're interested in having your work being showcased, be it music/chart/graphic then come join our Serenity Discord Server.

    Music Submissions

    As we aim to make bigger and bigger Serenity packs, our search for more awesome music contributions from talented people also grows. If you make music or have any friends who create music and wish to be featured on future Serenity updates, please fill our online submission form, after reading our guidelines to make sure everything is cleared and safe for use.

    Music submissions are always open. Regardless if a volume is currently in development or not, we're always checking our submissions backlog and curating possible candidates for use and will contact you if we think something is fit.

  • Dear OutFox Community,

    As we move closer towards the release of Alpha V, and after the issues we had with the release of 4.9.9, we would like to address some of the things that as a team we have noticed over the past few months. As a community, we're not sure if the addition of a Discord server has caused some of these issues and behaviour, or if it's the fact that we are more easily accessible than if we were on a forum or IRC channel. We are writing this post to make our stance and that of our staff and volunteers, as well as those who contribute time or content to make the game better.

    We love OutFox, and still love a lot of the things that StepMania was. The name change was needed so we can sign our MacOS (and soon Windows) builds. There is no conspiracy about moving away from the core playerbase. There are no other issues about us 'abandoning' our dedication and efforts on improving StepMania via it's own repository in the future with some form of update from our team as discussed with Shakesoda. There is also no conspiracy theory about us hating 'dance' based games. Just because 4/5 panel is not literally everything we live and breathe does not make it correct for you to throw out misinformation or treat us in a way that moves toward literal cyberbullying to the team. We understand your passion and drive for the modes that you play, but this does not give you any right to try to enforce that view in a negative manner towards us.

    What we don't love at all is continued demands and entitlement - something that over the past two to three months has begun to get extremely volatile from certain communities and individuals. OutFox is not our life or existence. OutFox also is not our job. We code and develop (and support) OutFox as our fun and to drive us to do better. We will always do our best to fix things or do things as fast as possible, including updates, bugfixes, support, handling feature requests, supporting legacy 5.1/5.0 code, providing support for players who don't even use OutFox, etc. This also is true when that demand is your first or one of your only interactions with our team or server.

    Before you ask us, (or anyone else in your life) to do something for you, please take time to carefully consider what you are asking for, and where this expectation has come from. We are extremely patient and generous here at Project OutFox, so some expectation of us for very little in return is something we have become used to; including community support, bug support, even code support and providing test builds to fix issues folks have. What you are not entitled to however, is to expect some defined service level or response time, or to demand information at a whim. We do things as quickly as constraints of life allow. Whether that be minutes, hours, days or weeks, you have no entitlement to expect one or the other. The game gets improvements as and when - if you cannot see the improvements this brings to your specific mode of play, then that is a shame. As we improve the engine it benefits more than just a specified mode, and this is the future of OutFox. It will become more than what it was when we took the reins, and that is to support a brand new rhythm game sandbox moving forward.

    We thank you for continuing to support the project, but for the sanity of the team, we felt this issue needs to be addressed before it gets out of hand, or worse we suffer from the demands of people who do not consider how their actions affect the team.

    ~Project OutFox Team

  • Today we have not one, not two, but three big announcements:

    Project OutFox Alpha 4.9.10

    Project OutFox Alpha 4.9.10 builds upon the work and bug fixes from the Alpha 4.9.9 hotfix builds, and also contains some new internal features that serve as building blocks for current and future content:

    Alpha 4.9.10 contains a number of new details, features, and bug fixes for some of our game types;


    • The interactive sync/calibration process now supports other game types besides dance.
    • We have fixed issues with rate mods and the sound resampler.
    • In pump and taiko, we now support timing windows from both games (with pump having Normal, Hard, and Very Hard settings), and have added judgement fonts to them as well.
    • In pump, we also gave the default noteskin a refresh to improve visibility, and changed the design of the center panel graphic in response to feedback.
    • In gddm, we now support the older GDA format for BandJAM/GDAMania-era six-part drum charts. We also fixed a bug that caused crashes when loading DTX charts that don't use all nine lanes.
    • In beat, the noteskins have been updated to have button sprites under the receptor line.
    • As demonstrated in the OutFox Serenity trailer, we now support showing judgments per-column. By default, per-column judgements are displayed in modes that typically use them, such as gddm and popn.
    • We now support displaying a loading screen before gameplay when the game needs to load keysounds in game types such as beat and popn. Previously, this occurred over a black screen with the game appearing to hang, which was just a little disconcerting. The default theme features a reference implementation of this feature, but themers can customize it to their heart's content.

    As always, this is just a recap of the major, user-facing features. For a full change log, as well as a developer note from Squirrel over what had happened with Alpha 4.9.9, see the Alpha 4.9.10 page on

    More information

    A lot of (out)fox to give

    Project Moondance was a legacy brand used by our team early on, often in parallel with "OutFox" and "Team Rizu" (the name we used to initially refer to our main dev team). As our project and community evolved, however, this nomenclature became confusing, and we began the process of phasing out the "Project Moondance" and "Team Rizu" names in favour of just "Project OutFox", because everyone called it just "OutFox" anyway.

    As of today, we are beginning to migrate our main website from to Right now, it is a redirect, but it will become the main URL soon (the old domain will still redirect, though). The site will also be updated over the next few weeks to reflect the new direction of our project, so stay tuned for future details!

  • We have been working on a new documentation wiki known as, to provide in-depth information on how to play, create content for, and develop Project OutFox. We have deployed a new format and framework for the wiki to replace one that the webmaster, in retrospect, didn't think was flexible enough for our needs. While it features the same content as it had before, it also features:

    • A new visual appearance with more continuity with the main site.
    • Better organization
    • Cleaner URLs (no more weird, we now have proper subdirectories). This did break all existing links to the wiki, so be sure to update your links if you have been linking to content on the wiki.

    Be sure to check back often, as it will be continually updated with new information as we go. Its content is drawn from a Git repository; commit access is limited to the development team, but you can always perform pull requests.

  • Hello everyone, hope you're having a good day, with the announce of Moondance Team and Team Rizu joining sides to create Team OutFox, we also created a new Twitter account focused only on that, expect everything about OutFox to be announced there too! Here's the link:
