What is a .BME file?

The .BME file extension stands for a BeatMania 7-Key Song File. This type of file is associated with the video game BeatMania, which is a rhythm-based game where players act like a DJ using a special controller. Unlike the .BMS files which are used for controllers with 5 keys, .BME files are specifically designed for BeatMania controllers that have 7 keys.

The content of a .BME file includes various details necessary for the game to play a song correctly. These details include the song's title, the artist's name, the genre of the music, the beats per minute (BPM), the number of players it supports, and the positions of the notes that players need to hit. Additionally, .BME files contain references to sound effect files and other relevant information to enhance the gaming experience.

.BME files are saved in a text format, which means they can be opened and edited with text editors, but to use them as intended (for playing the song in the game), specific software is required. One popular program that can open and use .BME files is StepMania. StepMania is a rhythm game for PCs that supports various file formats from different rhythm games, including those from BeatMania. It allows users to play the songs contained in .BME files using a compatible interface on their computer.
