Unused Graphics

Background Animations

The folder DATA8 contains the many files used for the game's songs, which include graphics, music, keysounds and animation controllers. Amidst the graphic resources for several older songs, exist several unused sprites, listed below:

Happy man - I0005/BG0005.FCN

From the original GuitarFreaks to GuitarFreaks 3rdMix, during a scene in the video of the song Happy man, a rocker character is displayed, strumming either a guitar or a broom. In later releases, only his head is displayed, albeit the graphics for his other body parts can still be found.

Stage Counter

While there is a graphic indicating a Premium Encore stage in the menu HUD, such a feature is not present in this game.


Songlist Item

This graphic, found in DATA8/I0436/IDX0436.DAT, is a songlist item for the How To Play song, which is not selectable under normal circumstances.


Results Screen

These placeholder graphics are leftovers from GuitarFreaks 8thMIX & drummania 7thMIX, and can be found in PCCARD1.DAT (GF)/GAME.DAT (dm). They come in seven variants.
