However, there is a special version of Malody that can upload tja files.
You can send a message to any Publishers or Assistants, and they can give you the download link.
After downloading the special Malody (malody_tja.exe), put it in the same folder with normal Malody.
Next, import the charts you want to upload into Malody.
When importing, put the following files in one folder and put it in the beatmap folder.
- tja file

- Cover image
Then, start malody_tja.exe.
Please make sure that the level difficulty and course is correct, and whether the score can be played normally.
After confirming, select OPTION, and then Edit this chart to open the editor screen.
There will be a reminder that you can't edit non-mc files, just ignore it for now.
When you are in the screen, press U to open up the uploading interface.
