Unused Graphics

Unused Frames

The file MOVIE\MM_01.GCZ contains the frames seen in the movie of the song Morning Music, which depict a countdown, as seen in Konami's Bubble System games, going from 99 to 01 and then looping. However, three unused frames for the countdown reaching 00 exist; curiously, they cannot be found in the original KeyboardMania.



ETC_01.GCZ is a file that contains graphics for the Song Splash, Results, Internet Ranking and Game Over screens. It also contains this placeholder graphic featuring pop'n stage character Space Maco.
