Unused Stepchart Data

NOTE: All of the following offsets take in consideration x_data_US.bin in the American release and x_data_UK.bin in the European release.

Looking For You

Named lk4u.ssq, located at offsets 0x60D0000 (US)/0x5866800 (EU). All 6 charts (the game's Beginner charts don't exist in the ssq data) are different from their final counterparts, and so is the sync:

Mello

Named melo_main.ssq, located at offsets 0x635E800 (US)/0x5AF5000 (EU). This file is incomplete, only having Single Light and Standard charts, though they are different from their final counterparts. The BPM breakdown is also vastly different:

Skulk

While this song doesn't have an unused file, it has an unused chart within the used stepfile, consisting of erratic and awkward patterns.

Unused Graphic
