I still have my flash drive with the songs I had on last year. Can you tell me the specifics as to what I need if I wanna put extra songs on my flash drive?

I'm not sure if the USBs will be functional since I'm struggling with trying to get them to work. The song pack from last year will be on the machine too.

Gah that would suck if that happened. Keep us updated on that cause a lot of people will wanna know if they can use their USB sticks. ;)

GG on the pack Volt. Abracadaver and Trust Me are easily my favorite charts. Glad you added from an anime most people wouldn't watch (Durarara!)

Countdown = almost 6 days =)

Can't wait for this! I'm not bad at DDR but haven't ever competed in a tourney before. I'm really looking forward to seeing where I stand (even if I don't make it past qualifiers, haha).

Sorry if I'm the 5th person to ask this, but any news on the functionality of the USB sticks? I've written quite a few files but haven't had the time+money+room+(other nouns) to play them on a pad, and I'd really like to see how they play on a proper DDR rig.

I will try to get USBs to work, so just bring it just in case. A flash drive isn't a big thing to bring.

The AB simfile pack is going through some more revisions, so expect another release soon.

So I think it's safe to assume there will be yet another year of DDR/ITG tourneys?
Looking forward to another Ninevolt pack of AB songs :o Been practicing so I can try to keep up with all the 13's/14s this year hurrays

As always Dave we'll be hooking us up with awesomeness...

We are shaping our Dance Box setup atm. I say dance box because this year we will have Pump it Up, along with DDR/ITG. We're trying to secure a third machine so that we can have all three running at the same time which would be crazy fun...

Stay tuned!

Yeah, I've been working on a simfile pack. The songlist is almost complete. More details on it later.

If those charts includes a full version of Spring Yard Zone from The Konami Kode, I'll be glad to fail it.

Hey, I know this seems random, but I wanted to know if the (Anime) pack for this year's DDR Event/Tournament will be available for download. I can offer some anime songs for pad myself, and there are plenty of people who step pad as well over at the SM (Stepmania) community sites. Especially http://www.otakusdream.com/

I planned to come this year and I have my ticket paid for, but unfortunately I'm unable to go financially. I can still try to send some simfiles though if you want. I only need requirements (song bit rate minimum, length requirements, length patched, banner/bg requirements, etc.) and I might be able to help out.

If you need to contact me you can always contact me at http://stepmaniaonline.com/ I don't plan to advertise this site at all, I'm only hoping to provide more songs for the DDR/ITG machines. I really wish I could go, I was planning to tear it up. :P

Email me too if you want:

ddrxero64@stepmaniaonline.eu

Let me know how the DDR scene turns out!

Yeah, this should definitely be considered for the convention. You guys don't need to make your own song packs, there are a good deal more in the stepmania communities that are specifically for pad. I strongly encourage looking into otaku's dream and the site ddrxero64 linked to.

Also, any info on when or where this is going to take place?

Thanks for the consideration, but there is already an anime-themed simfile pack that I just finished up and about to upload for release. The idea for these simfile packs much like last year's packs is to compile a pack of fresh new high-quality unreleased simfiles that the whole dance game community can enjoy. I've been coordinating this little project since AB 2009, and I will continue to do it until I basically get bored of it.

Here is the list of songs included in the pack [strike]that will be available for download shortly[/strike] available for download below:

Let me be with you - Round Table feat. Nino

No problem. In fact, I'm glad to see more simfile artists out there. It's becoming a little less quiet in that scene. I'm downloading the pack, I'll definitely enjoy it.

Off the side, do you use ddreamstudio to step these? Or the stepmania in game editor? I'll also play these with Xmods, some people jump straight to Cmods without any consideration of the BPM changes, freezes or gimmicks you might have used. But yes, good luck with with a successful tournament/event, let me know how it goes! I do hope to be there next year (and maybe the next three, I saw the dates haha).

Have fun everyone, show people where rhythm gaming really started :P

Edit: I was looking through the pad files I made a couple of months ago and I stumbled upon an anime one I did. It's Girls Be Amibitious, the Sora No Woto Ending. I don't expect you to download it at all, but try it out if you're interested. It's stepped for three difficulties, and I remember working hard to make each difficulty fun for the players in that skill range. It is the whole song though, so it may have to be length patched to use it on a machine. You may not even want to use it, but if you have time check it out. :)

Mediafire Link

Length - 3:53

Light - 5
Standard - 7
Heavy - 9

Note: The banner is horrible, I realized I didn't have one in the folder so I kind of made it in 2 minutes, I'm leaving so I apologize presentation wise.

Like I said, I don't expect you to use this or play it at all. It's only if you'd like to, Fully paddable steps.

I used OpenITG (Stepmania 3.95) to step these and used waveform syncing to get my offsets. There aren't that many files with stops, slowdown, or gimmicks, but there are a few that do, namely Miku Miku ni Shiteru and Marshmallow. These simfiles are generally pretty straightforward.

Good stuff! I don't question the sync at all, most people know what they're doing when they've stepped as long as you have.

I actually have really unexpected and good news for myself, people on my site just donated a good sum of money to me to go. I'll be heading thursday for pre registration. I had my ticket since December, and now that I can go I plan to spend some time on those files haha. I actually may bring my own on a USB if it's ok, I'll probably put one or two of my own and all my anime pad packs released in our community over the years (the ones worth noting at least). They're all ITG ready, so don't worry.

I hope to see you there NineVolt. I'll be labeled as Xero, with a shirt labeled administrator (ddrXero64). I administrate Stepmania Online, so I should be easy to spot since I tend to talk up a storm at times.

My skills are rusty, don't expect too much. You should know how hard it is to find a machine in Western MA, so I've literally played a handful of times in the past years. I've actually never touched an ITG machine though, but I assume it's a matter of getting comfortable with after playing DDR.

See ya there~

I also found sync issues with Egao no Mahou and Ready Go!, so I fixed that and updated the zip accordingly.

So, does anyone know if there will be an ITG/DDR machine this year? Wanna see if I should load up my USB stick with songs :P

The official arcade machine lineup is:
Dance Dance Revolution X2*
Beatmania IIDX Lincle*
Pop'n Music Fantasia*
Dance Dance Revolution Extreme
DJMAX Technika 3
Taiko no Tatsujin 13

Bemani games noted with an * will be on the Programmed World eAmuse network, and Technika will be live on Platinum Crew.
If I can get everything setup in time (big if) I will be installing a button on the Extreme machine to switch between Extreme and ITG on the fly.

For up to date info check out our event page:

Also, I can confirm both DDR machines this year will be in much better shape than the ITG machine last year :lol:

Figured I'd ask again, I'm assuming DDR will be there? I really need to get back into that game, it sucks that DDR as a whole is dying. But it's still fun to play whenever I get the chance. :)

I used to play all the time at home on the plastic mats. I like the metal pads better. You can actually play without taking your shoes off. LOL.
