Proto:Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page details one or more prototype versions of Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix.

An early prototype of Dancing Stage Unleashed dated July 1, 2003 (a little under 3 months prior to the final Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix build, the game's original release) was released by drx on November 26, 2020, as part of the Hidden Palace February 2020 Community Group Buy lot.

NOTE: To make the game load on Cxbx-R, 183h bytes must be added to default.xbe.

General Differences

  • All of the game is watermarked with a rainbow border, which presumably indicates the possible cutoff areas of the screen.

Attract/Title

  • When the game boots, an "Updating song list" message briefly appears. This does not happen in the final release.

DDRultramix-protoBOOT.png

  • The warning screens originally had several spelling errors, which were fixed upon release.
Proto Final
DDRultramix-usaonlyPROTO.png DDRultramix-usaonlyFINAL.png
DDRultramix-cautionPROTO.png DDRultramix-cautionFINAL.png
  • The title screen still refers to the game as Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix, with copyright information also being absent. The prototype data also reveals a different logo design for Dancing Stage Unleashed:
Proto Final
DDRultramix-titlePROTO2.png DDRultramix-title.png
DDRultramix-titlePROTO.png DDRultramix-titleEU.png
  • The track that plays in the title screen uses a different line for the announcer. The prototype track can still be found unused in the final game.
Proto Final

Main Menu

  • The menus have no proper background.
  • There is an additional function in the prototype called "TRADE CENTER", though it does not work anymore. Another function is referenced in the main executable, titled DEMO PLAY.
Proto Final
DDRultramix-mainmenuPROTO.png DDRultramix-mainmenuFINAL.png
  • Challenge Mode does not seem to have been implemented yet, as its function does not work and no graphics can be found for it.
  • The main menu BGM was slightly extended in the final release.
Proto Final

Style Select

  • The text string for Double Mode in the Style Select menu was slightly altered:
Proto Final
Single play with two dance controllers
Single play with two dance mats

Battle Mode

  • In the prototype, Battle Mode is divided between two options, Local Battle and Live Battle. This latter option would be moved to a separate mode in the final release.
  • The player setting screen was also redesigned:
Proto Final
DDRultramix-battle1PROTO.png
DDRultramix-battle2PROTO.png DDRultramix-battle2FINAL.png
DDRultramix-battle3PROTO.png DDRultramix-battle3FINAL.png
  • Several strings were modified. It's important to note that, in the prototype, the Point Battle mode did not have an explanatory string.
Proto Final
In Score Battle the end score is the basis for winning or losing.
In Score Battle, the highest total score determines who wins.
Point battle.#####
In Point Battle, step accuracy of each arrow determines who wins.

Workout Mode

  • Several strings were modified, mostly fixing grammar issues:
Proto Final
Enter the number of calries to burn.
Enter the number of calories to burn.
Set workout targets by goal: calories burned, play time or no settings.
Set the goal of your workout. Choose from Calories Burned, Play Time, or No Setting.

Options

  • The Credits function does not work.
  • The prototype's audio settings match those of the PlayStation/PlayStation 2 games, while those of the final version are more diversified.
Proto Final
DDRultramix-soundoptionsPROTO.png DDRultramix-soundoptionsFINAL.png
  • The "VOICE" setting does not have separate announcer options in the prototype.
  • The helper string for the "VOICE" setting was modified:
Proto Final
Turn booing heard during dance, on/off.
Select voice type.
  • The control settings are also different:
Proto Final
DDRultramix-doubleoptionsPROTO.png DDRultramix-doubleoptionsFINAL.png

Practice Mode

  • At some point, the Help Arrow modifier would display arrows with hearts on them, much like its icon. While they were already altered to gold arrows by the prototype's date, the helper string was not.
Proto Final
Arrows with hearts on them will appear during the sequence that will increase your dance gauge more than a normal arrow.
Gold arrows will appear during the sequence that will increase your dance gauge more than a normal arrow.

Edit Mode

  • The prototype's Edit Mode strings still have many references to the PlayStation 2, such as its memory cards and buttons.

Gameplay

  • None of the licensed songs from the final Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix or Dancing Stage Unleashed were implemented yet.
  • Scores don't seem to save.
  • After a song is selected, its tags are not displayed in the loading screen.
  • The Freeze Arrow helper graphic that appears when starting a song was slightly modified, with the "Dance Dance Revolution" text on the top left being changed to "How To Play":
Proto Final
DDRultramix-freezeguidePROTO.png DDRultramix-freezeguideFINAL.png
  • The character LADY has not been implemented yet.
  • All the songs use the same background animation set, referenced as performance data test.csv.

Results Screen

  • The grading graphics were redesigned:

  • The results screen BGM was completely different:

The banner in the prototype lacks the [SP4] tag, suggesting the song was not meant to be DLC at first. The title tag is differently colored as well.

Bugs

Practice/Edit Mode

  • The songs Colors for EXTREME, Electro Tuned the SubS mix and OVERBLAST!! display no measure data in Practice Mode. They also crash the game when edit data is attempted to be created for them.

Gameplay

  • Due to Tribal Dance Almighty Mix and MAX 300 not having .sif data, these songs are not playable by normal means, instead being replaced by clones of La Señorita Virtual.
