{May 11, 2007}   UltraStar-NG

When I first saw UltraStar (a PC conversion of the famous karaoke game Singstar), I decided I wanted it in Debian, but I found it quite difficult to port it (even being GPL), as it was programmed in Kylix/Delphi. There are lots of songs around there for UltraStar, and it is also possible to import them from SingStar.

UltraStar-NG (the NG stand for Next Generation) is based on UltraStar, but it’s being recoded in C++. It allows you to add your own songs in the forms of mp3s along with a song text and a music video file. The game allows a computer to evaluate how good you are when you sing by analyzing your voice pitch.

We‘ve already finished packaging UltraStar-NG for Debian yesterday, and it is now waiting in the NEW queue for the FTP-Masters approval. Lets hope it’ll be available soon :)

SingStar is a karaoke video game for the PlayStation 2, published by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and developed by SCEE and London Studio. It is popular karaoke game in which players sing to music videos in order to score points. Players interface with their PS2 via SingStar USB microphones while a music video plays on screen. Lyrics are shown at the bottom of the screen. SingStar matches a player’s song voice to the original track, with players scoring points according to how accurate their singing is. Usually, two players compete simultaneously.
