Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) will be updated from time to time.
Q: I can’t see everyone in the community. Is there a way for us to connect?
A: Yes, there are two ways:
1. On your router, set the connection settings to UDP and open the port. If a port range is required, set it from 50000 to 65535.
2. Use any VPN that can support UDP protocol. Windscribe and NordVPN are highly recommended.
Q: I already installed the game, but it still needed to update.
A: Before (re)installing, you must extract everything from the .iso installer file and turn off the antivirus.
Q: How can I make an account?
A: Go to [https://id.bandmasterglobal.com/] and fill up the required blanks. After that, you can now log into the game!
Q: I can’t extract the files from the .iso installation file.
A: A special software for disc (DVD) files is required for you to easily extract the files. I would recommend WinRAR or PowerISO for that, no need to subscribe to the full version.

A: It is under construction. The community was prioritized. If the server gets enough support, probably the multi play will be added soon.

Q: I was about to start the game, but “failed to load neouilib.dll” popped up.

A: There’s a free Refresh Bux ticket in the stores. Use this item to see the additional bux.
Q: If multiplay is not yet available, how do I gain exp and bux?
A: Playing in any community map will give you exp and bux depending on your performance.
Q: I got 0 exp.
A: There is a spam-detection system. When you spam for more than half of the song’s duration, you will not gain exp. Also having a performance of below 85% will unlikely give you exp.
Q: I got Wrong Username/Password popped up when logging in to the game.
A: Click “Play Game” only once. The game sometimes doesn’t read if you click it many times.
Q: Is multiplay available?
A: Multiplay is under construction. We will announce when it’s ready.

Q: BandMaster Global is detected as virus and I’m not able to play?!
