Region Flag/Music Database Notes

  • No songlist changes happen if the regions or music databases are changed in the operator menu. Graphic changes will still happen, though.
  • Considering that the codes are for the A region, changing the music database to J during booting will make the removed songs appear. But they won't be properly playable since the audio for them was dummied with the Scale Check.
  • Changing the region to Europe will reveal a "Dancing Stage Solo" graphic in the title screen and highscore grid.
  • If the game's region is changed to America or Europe during booting, the menus will play the song DROP OUT, and the game will freeze upon reaching the song selection menu or the demo play.
    • A similar scenario happens if only the music database is changed to E or U during booting: the menus will play the song SAMBA DE JANEIRO, still freezing upon reaching the song selection menu or the demo play.
      This is because the entries in the E and U Music Database files are of a different length than in the J and A ones.

Unused Graphics

Leftover MiniDisc Textures

The MiniDisc textures for the songs SAMBA DE JANEIRO and I'M ALIVE, leftovers from Dance Dance Revolution Solo Bass Mix, can be found in the game's data.

Da na na naaaaaa na na na na boobs I liiiiiiiiive agaaaaaaaaaain

Unused Background

A much simpler version for the background of the song WILD RUSH can be found in the game's data. It seems to resemble more the song's banner.

Unused Used
Tablecloths don't make good backgrounds. Okay, who let those Amiga guys make a background for the game?

Unused Banner

The unused banner for the song TOGETHER & FOREVER, a leftover from Dance Dance Revolution Solo Bass Mix, can still be found in the game's data.

Unused Used
Taste the rainbow. Mm, smurf-flavored Skittles.

Empty Spots in Selection Screen

One of the image files used for song selection in the game contains three empty spaces. Presumably they would've been used by songs that were removed from the game during development.

Early Background Variants

Earlier variants of the background sprites seen in the Internet Ranking and "Welcome to Club DDR Solo" screens can also be found within the game's data.

Unused Audio

Among the audio files in the game's CD there's preview audio for It's Summertime - Ricky D. feat. Janina, which was present in the album Dancemania BASS#5.
Apparently it's a song scrapped during development, the sample music being the only surviving data. The corresponding song was dummied with the "Scale Test" audio.

Unused Charts

Hmmm...
To do:
Record footage of these charts.

Data for additional, mostly harder 3-Panel charts for practically every song can be found in the game's data. Below is a list of the songs that have them. For the sake of convenience, the additional charts are labeled as "3-Panel Trick" and "3-Panel Maniac". There can only be a "No" if a chart is identical to its previous difficulty.
