Dance Dance Revolution Extreme (PlayStation 2, Japan)
|Dance Dance Revolution Extreme|
Add info about the "Confidential" model viewer.
A direct port of the arcade version, unlike the radically-different "port" released in the West a year after this one. It also boasts of having one of the largest set of songs in any DDR console ports; a whopping 111 of them, to be precise, and even more so if you utilize System Data Support to unlock the songs from both 6thMIX and 7thMIX.
The question is, of course, "Why do you need KONAMI ORIGINAL songs?"
Unused Step Charts
Some songs have incomplete Oni charts that can be accessed if the song's songwheel data definition is modified to include an Oni difficulty/foot rating. Songs that include such charts include LOVE❤SHINE and Last Message.
There are pieces of unused audio found in DATA/SOUND/SD.BIN, and in DATA/FILEDATA.BIN on the game's disc.

Hidden Dancer Model/Routine viewer screen
The game has a secret screen to view the different routines for all the dancing characters. To access it, do the following:
1.- Go to the Dancer Options screen
2.- Select "RANDOM ALL" on either 1P Character, 2P Character, or Extra Character lines.
3.- On the Player 2 controller, hold LEFT button on D-Pad so it changes from "RANDOM ALL" to "YUNI(4th)"
4.- While still holding P2 left, hold P2 circle + L1 + R1 + L3 + R3
5.- Wait 10 sec until the screen changes.
The following screens are then used with the P1 controller.
Up/Down : Change character
Left/Right : Change "motion" (routine)
Circle : Go to the next screen
Cross : Go back to the Dancer Options screen
Left/Right : Rotate the character in the X axis.
Up/Down : Rotate the character in the Y axis.
Square : Toggle the floor under the character.
L1 : Zoom Out.
L2 : Zoom In.
R1 : Pan Up.
R2 : Pan Down.
Circle (hold) : Manually play the routine.
Cross : Go back to the previous screen.
Start : Play the routine automatically.
Select : Change the shading/rendering style of the character.
While playing the chosen routine by holding Circle, all the other buttons can be used.
On the other hand, while playing the routine automatically the only things that can be done are toggling the floor and changing the shading. In this mode, holding Circle pauses the routine.
