NAME

       performous - The free Linux karaoke game

DESCRIPTION

       Performous  is  a  free  cross-platform clone of the Playstation 2 game
       Singstar.

       While Performous might be  classified  as  a  karaoke  program,  it  is
       actually  much  more  than that. Instead of just displaying the lyrics,
       notes are also displayed and the performance is  scored  based  on  how
       well  you  hit  the  notes  and  you  can see your own singing pitch on
       screen.

       Performous was previously known as  UltraStar  Next  Generation  (USNG)
       because  it supports the UltraStar song format. It is not a fork of the
       Delphi-based UltraStar games, as Performous is rewritten  from  scratch
       in C++.

       If  you  have  trouble  with  the  program  (no  songs found, audio not
       working, etc),  try  running  it  on  a  terminal.  Some  useful  debug
       information such a list of the song folders is printed there.
