Chiptune Champion has tons of awesome songs pre-downloaded, but after a while, they can get dull. Fortunately, its really easy to download and play new songs from the Steam Workshop! Here’s how:
Step One: Find the song
If you go to your library on Steam and select Chiptune Champion, below the achievements box you’ll see a button that says ‘Browse The Workshop’. Clicking this will take you to a separate page with loads of user created songs. Simply find one you like, and click it.
Step Two: Subscribing
Now that you’ve found your song and clicked on it, you’ll see a page similar to what you’d see when looking at games. Pictures, title, maybe a video and a subscribe button instead of a buy button. Clicking that will ‘subscribe’ you to the song, meaning that it’s accessible through Chiptune Champion. Unfortunately however, you’re work isn’t over.
Step Three: Downloading
On the same page as the subscribe button, there will almost always be a description of the song. In that description, there’s probably a link to the mp3 file that you need to play along too. Clicking that link opens your browser and takes you to a download page, where you can download the song. Once you’ve got the file, either remember where it’s located (most likely downloads) or make a folder on your desktop and put it in there.
Step Four: Importing
Open Chiptune Champion and go to the section marked ‘Custom Songs’. In there, you’ll see a button marked ‘Import’, in the top right of the page.
Clicking that opens a file explorer window, in which you must find the mp3 file you downloaded. If you didn’t make a folder, it will probably be in downloads. Double click the mp3 file. A box will pop up asking you if you made the song yourself or took it from the Steam Workshop.
This guide is for Steam Workshop songs, so click that. Another box will appear, this time asking you to select the track file you subscribed too. It’ll have a similar name to the one in the Steam Workshop. After you’ve selected the track file and clicked ‘OK’, just type in the song name and the artist, and you’re all set to go!
