Unused Stepchart Files

WWW.BLONDE GIRL MOMO MIX

Labeled as all.ssq, stored at offset 0xC389800 in the American release only. The only differences are that, in the unused variant, all notes are positioned a measure later, alongside the Double Beginner chart being missing.

Castlevania Freestylin' Mix

Labeled as cas2_all_tmp.ssq, stored at offset 0xC8A7800 in the American release only. The only difference is in the metadata, in which the artist tag uses slightly different capitalization:

Early Final
Wavegroup feat. Nicky G
WaveGroup feat. Nicky G

My Only Shining Star

Labeled as myon.ssq, stored at offset 0xE0CF800 (US) / 0xDFF1000 (EU). Differences include the lack of a Double Beginner chart and a different BPM breakdown:

Early Final
Beat Value

8 155

Koibito

Labeled as neko_all_bak.ssq, stored at offset 0xE178000 (US) / 0xE099800 (EU). It is very unfinished, only having a Single Difficult chart mainly consisting of the same pattern over and over again.

think ya better D

Labeled as all.ssq, stored at offset 0xEC81000 in the European release only. All of the data seems to be directly taken from Dance Dance Revolution 4thMIX, as evidenced by the lack of Beginner difficulty charts, as well as data for 6-Panel charts and a Couple one existing.

One thing to note is that the "All songs cleared." is unobtainable in the European version by normal means, as its clear condition (clearing 78 songs) was not changed, and that downloadable content is now unavailable.

Castlevania Freestylin' Mix

This song has slightly different Basic charts between both versions, as well as a slightly different BPM breakdown. In addition, its artist in the European version is capitalized as Wavegroup feat. Nicky G, much like the song's unused file from the American release.
