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:
|Download Looking For You (early chart data)
File: DDRultramix2-lk4u.zip (5,28 MB) (info)
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:
|Download Mello (early chart data)
File: DDRultramix2-melo.zip (6,55 MB) (info)
While this song doesn't have an unused file, it has an unused chart within the used stepfile, consisting of erratic and awkward patterns.
|Download Skulk (early chart)
File: DDRultramix2-skuk.zip (6,40 MB) (info)
ADV.tga, found at 0x4DA0800 of x_data_US.bin in the American release, and 0x4661000 of the European release, is a leftover from a demo.
The original American release still has the credits for Dancing Stage Unleashed stored at 0x4FE5000 of x_data_US.bin.
