It doesn't appear that this theme actually allows you to use SMO like you are supposed to. I have the same theme and 3.9, and it doesn't allow for you to even create a room, access the lobby, or start songs. So essentially it's unusable.

I tried to connect, but StepMania keeps freezing. Whenever I have Windows restore StepMania, it says the connection was dropped. On the front page, it says I'm still connected, and in my room.
Help please!

Unfortunately every once and a while when the server drops it isn't a clean disconnection. This means that even though everyone is disconnected from the server, they are still shown in the rooms and appear to be online. If this ever happens again, go to your network options, "disconnect" from smo, and wait until your room is no longer visible on the SMO home page. You should then be able to reconnect to smo without SM hanging.

Be aware though that it could take several minutes before your room disappears from the smo home page, in the event of this glitch.

Yes, just connect to yourself (127.0.0.1) then other people can connect to your local address.

That's when you can play your songs. In order to choose a pack or song you have to hold ctrl and then hit enter. To start a song, do it again.

Your banner is too big.

Some of these themes have the network option already added. I dont know off the top of my head.

It's because Cyberiastyle 6 theme, just like the older themes, were meant to be played for the LAN support, not SMO support. Cyberiastyle 7, an SM 5 theme, however is available for SMO support.
