Pls advise why Songs not loaded on linux StepMania 5.3 Outfox (linux, menu sound works, "No selectable songs or courses found in WheelData")

[SOLVED] Thanks to SHRMP0 - wrong gametype was chosen (all songs were for dance, where’s kg8 was set in SM config)

Hi, pls advise how can I diagnose why StepMania 5.3 Outfox (from Team Rizu) doesn’t show songs on Ubuntu (I only see Roulette). Notable log “MusicWheel::MusicWheel() - No selectable songs or courses found in WheelData”

At the same time SM’s start screens shows proper number of songs and categories and also system sounds works fine (menu clicks, menu background music, etc).

I’ve tried to place songs into both app folder and user profile folder - it makes no difference.

SM: StepMania5.3-git-ef310a789c Compiled 20201217

System: 20.10 (groovy) 64-bit on Raspberry Pi 4

Pls advise
for search: songs missing no songs empty playlist

Your gamemode is set to kb7 but you only have dance songs. Go to Select Game and choose “dance”.

That was it! Shame on me if I’ve missed this aspect somewhere in docs/logs/google.
