Important pack link update!
All .rar files have been converted to .zip
______________________________________________________________________
In preparation for a new, much more comprehensive on site pack scanning feature, all non .zip formatted packs have been reconverted and uploaded as .zip. This is important, as this means that all packs with non .zip extensions have had their prior links broken! This has effected 142 entries, as listed below. If any of these packs are yours, or if they are in the major packs entry, please make note to change the .rar part of the url to .zip as soon as possible! If your mirror link isn't working, this is why!

This is pretty hype, I've seen a little preview of the new search engine that is tied to this new scanning feature. Looking promising! Keep up the good work guys

Can't wait for the update!

Just to clarify, if I have the .rar downloaded and extracted into my songs, will I need to redownload/extract the .zip to play with those who got the .zip? Thanks in advance.

You're fine! The packs are the exact same, they are just stored in a different format. If you already extracted the .rar, you don't need to re-download it as a .zip. The only thing this breaks is offsite links people may have posted to the SMO mirrors, which this is addressing.

Well, this is nice! those that don't have winrar and can't afford it will now be able to play these packs once someone uploads the original!

Although, I never thought that some DDR packs were .rar formatted.

You do not need WinRAR in order to view and extract .rar compressed files. There are alternatives, such as 7Zip which will let you do this and much more for no cost whatsoever. Even if there weren't though you could just use WinRAR on a trial, there are no restrictions on it at all. It's merely an ease of access thing so additional programs don't need to be searched for, as well as for consistency and so the new scan feature can read the packs.
