Unused Graphics

Note: All of the following graphics can be found in DATA/FILEDATA.BIN.

Oni/Challenge Mode

To answer the question in the introduction, it simply isn't there, being replaced by Nonstop Mode. However, some of its assets can still be found unused.

Song Selection Screen

A shoshinsha mark graphic, possibly intended to be displayed in songs with a rating of 2 or lower in Basic, as is in Dance Dance Revolution 5thMix and its home port.

Despite that no long versions exist in this game, a graphic that would have likely been used to denote one exists.

Gameplay

A graphic for an unused "Freeze!" judgement, which would have likely be seen while holding a freeze arrow.

These 5thMix-styled Game Over and Danger graphics don't seem to be used.

Unused Music

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: There should be some unused tracks in DATA/SOUND/SD.BIN.

The first 6 audio entries in DATA/FILEDATA.BIN are actually leftovers from both the japanese and american home releases of DDRMAX:

Track Audio Description
Track 1
A segment of BYE BYE BABY BALOON, used in the
Dancemania promotion sequence in the japanese version.
Track 2
The One More Extra Stage ending track.
Track 3
The "music list" ending track.
Track 4
The How To Play background music.
Track 5
The Ranking Screen background music.
Track 6
