Dance Dance Revolution Mario Mix
|Dance Dance Revolution Mario Mix|
Also known as: Dance Dance Revolution with Mario (JP), Dancing Stage: Mario Mix (EU)
A bizarre combination of franchises, Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix is exactly what it sounds like. It's also probably the only game where Waluigi has a significant role besides Mario Tennis. WAAAA!
Three screenshots of various levels in the game.
A splash screen likely leftover from a demo.
Replace mapsel.bin (data Folder) and mapsel.rel (dll folder) with selmenu.bin and selmenuDll.rel. Start a new story mode save or load an existing save in story mode and you should be taken to the debug menu. It's nearly identical to the one used in Mario Party 6, which is the engine the game uses. You can also use the Gecko Code 0411518C 80114F54 to load the menu in the NTSC-U version.
Lets you view the dance moves of each character. For some reason, it endlessly zooms out, which can get annoying. You can use the following Gecko code to prevent the constant zoom out in the NTSC-U version:
2039C7B8 EC010028 0439C7BC 60000000 0439C810 60000000 E2000001 80008000
Lets you view Mario and Luigi's animations. It has the same zooming problem, and you can use the following Gecko code to prevent it in the NTSC-U version:
2039C468 EC01002A 0439C46C 60000000 0439C490 60000000 0439C4A8 60000000 0439C42C 60000000 0439C3EC 60000000 0439C3AC 60000000 E2000001 80008000
Memory Usage Meter
DDR Mario Mix has a memory usage meter leftover from Hudson Mario Party games that can be enabled with a Gecko code. The Gecko Code 0403AA68 60000000 (NTSC-U) or 0403AA60 60000000 (PAL) will enable the meter.
Overscan Border Display
Enter the Gecko codes 0400C280 60000000 (PAL) or 0400C278 60000000 (NTSC) and you will see the screen surrounded by red borders which specify the region of the screen that is safe for UI elements to use. The borders specify that within 16 pixels from the horizontal edges and within 40 pixels of the vertical edges are not safe to use.
