1. INTRODUCTION
******************************************************************************

Hi and Konnichi wa!  Welcome to my FAQ for DDR Extreme 2 for the Playstation 
2!  I refer to this as a "FAQ/Walkthrough", but there's very little "walking 
through" to be done with this game.  Anyone familiar with Konami's most 
famous member of the BEMANI series will know that there are few written tips 
that can be given for the Dance Dance Revolution series.  You have to trust 
your own feet and your burning soul.  However, I will, in this FAQ, give 
you the heads-up on what the songs are, where they come from, and a few tips 
to get you ready for tackling them.

******************************************************************************
2. FAQ
******************************************************************************

Q: What is Dance Dance Revolution Extreme 2?

A: DDR Extreme 2 is Konami's latest foray into the DDR world as it gradually 
 makes its way to American shores.

Q: How does one play Dance Dance Revolution games?

A: It's actually pretty simple.  Your "controller" has four directions: left, 
 down, up, and right, which are shown at the top of your play screen.  You 
 select a song.  As the song plays, arrows will start scrolling up to your top 
 line.  When an arrow scrolling up reaches the line of arrows at the top, you 
 must "step" on the direction matching that arrow's direction.  If two arrows 
 come up at once, you must press both at once.  If a green "freeze" arrow 
 appears, you must hold that step at the beginning until the freeze arrow ends.

Q: How many songs in this mix?

A: 74.  24 open by default and the other 50 you have to unlock.

Q: How do I unlock new songs?

A: It's possible to unlock songs through Free Play or Advanced Mode by just 
 continually playing, but it's very slow.  The faster way is to play through 
 Dance Master Mode.  There are certain missions that unlock certain songs.  
 Also, it seems just repeatedly playing missions in DM Mode unlocks songs, 
 at least faster than the other modes.

Q: How do I unlock SAKURA?

A: One of the more popular selections in this mix, I'd wager.  You first need 
 to get to Area D of Dance Master Mode, then follow this sequence for the 
 fastest and easiest trip there: D-03, D-15, D-20, D-21, D-38, then 
 sequentially up each mission all the way to D-47.  It's not an easy run, 
 particularly the Supersonic Course at D-43, but you did want to earn the 
 song didn't you?

Q: Are there any more songs than the ones you have listed?

A: Nope.  That's all.  No MAX.(period).  No bag.  There's always next year.

Q: Can I turn off the corner buttons on my pad?

A: YES.  Recovering from their mistake in the last mix, "Dance Play Settings" 
 has returned as an option, so you can play on the pad without worrying about 
 a misstep due to a large foot.

Q: Is the EyeToy required to play?

A: No.  All there is to play is Hands & Feet Mode, which you can activate in 
 the options if the EyeToy is hooked up.  All songs have the same difficulties 
 as they did for regular Single.

Q: Is this just like the DDR Extreme in the arcades?

A: Not really.  For licensing reasons, the fact that the USA has missed 
 several old songs from previous mixes, and the introduction of brand new 
 songs for the American audience, we're given a hodgepodge of DDR material in 
 this mix from several different mixes, but mostly from the later mixes in 
 the arcades.

Q: Why isn't (insert song here) in this mix or any others?

A: Usually, it's directly related to the fact that, despite Konami's usage 
 of these songs for DDR, the songs are still owned by the songs' artists.  
 This means that the contract the artists have with Konami only refers to the 
 games they specify, which is generally the arcade mix, and (most of the time) 
 the corresponding Japanese Playstation console port.  Getting the songs over 
 here is a whole other story, and I feel that we're lucky to get the songs that 
 we do.  Of course, if your beef is why we don't get certain Konami Originals, 
 then I dunno what to tell you.

Q: Does this mix have Oni Mode?

A: Yes!  Oni Mode and Nonstop Mode are now placed into one section called 
 "Course Mode" which is under the new Advanced Mode, which houses all 
 difficult modes of play.

Q: Does this mix have Mission Mode?

A: Yes!  Now renamed "Dance Master Mode", this mode returns from last mix to 
 present you with unique challenges related to the gameplay.

Q: Just who is NAOKI?

A: Naoki Maeda has been with Konami for many years.  He is the leader of 
 Konami AM Internal Sound Team, who are in charge of coming up with songs for 
 each new DDR release.  He's responsible for many songs throughout DDR-dom, 
 under lots of artist names.  He also has the support of other artists and 
 vocalists, such as Paula Terry, Thomas Howard, and Aaron G.  His artist names 
 include, but are not limited to: Omega (the symbol), 1479, 180, 190, 190', 
 200, 270, 290, 8 bit, B3-PROJECT, BIG-O, BLUE DESTROYERS, Crystal Aliens, 
 DANDY MINIERO, d-complex, DJ KAZU, DE-SIRE, DIVAS, DR. VIBE, FACTOR-X, FIXX, 
 KTz, Luv UNLIMITED, mitsu-O!, MR. DOG, MUSTACHE MEN, N&S, N.M.R, NAOKI, NAOKI 
 190, NAOKI underground, NM, NO.9, NW260, RE-VENGE, RevenG, Stone Bros., 
 TailBros, THE FINAL BAND, THE SURRENDERS, UZI-LAY, Z, ZZ.  Some of these are 
 not actually names for Naoki, but sometimes artists he's used for vocals in 
 the songs.

Q: What is Dancemania?

A: A rather large series of albums, developed by Toshiba-EMI, which showcase 
 a lot of dance music from artists all over the world.  Konami's BEMANI studio 
 has a long-standing partnership, where DDR gets Dancemania licenses (for 
 relatively cheap) while DDR plugs Dancemania in its games.  There are a few
 DM releases in this mix.

Q: What is beatmania?

A: Developed almost concurrently with DDR, BM is a series of games where you 
 use your fingers instead of your feet.  You have a set of keys, like a piano, 
 and you have to tap those to create the music (each key tap adds music to the 
 playing score).  Also, you have a turntable to "scratch", which also adds 
 sound.  The original beatmania had 5 keys, beatmania IIDX has 7 keys (and is 
 the only one of the series still coming out with new mixes), and beatmania 
 III has 5 keys and a foot pedal.  I refer to several songs as being "from 
 beatmania", and you too, will have a chance to play some of these songs in 
 their original format once beatmania (US PS2) hits stores in early 2006.

Q: What are Guitar Freaks and Drummania?

A: These ongoing series are favorites from BEMANI.  Guitar Freaks uses a 
 guitar with three neck buttons and a "pick", which allows you to insert 
 music into the song.  Drummania is similar, using a drum set.  A few mixes 
 into the series, BEMANI got the wise idea of combining the two series, 
 giving each mix the same list, and allowing the machines to link up.

Q: What is Dance ManiaX?

A: This is a short-lived series that was made to showcase more Dancemania 
 tunes, as well as a bunch of Konami Originals.  It's played with light beams, 
 and blocking them in time with the music.

Q: What is pop'n music?

A: This is a currently ongoing BEMANI series that is similar to beatmania, 
 only it just involves a bunch of colored buttons.  It has a more cartoonish 
 look to it than other BEMANI series, and many of the songs are happy songs, 
 or songs from popular anime.

Q: What is Mambo A Go Go?

A: A one-shot experimental music game from BEMANI.  This one involved three 
 conga drums, and is played much as you'd expect.

Q: Hey, did you know that (insert song here) was in (insert game here) first?

A: Well, please, if I've made mistakes, let me know.  I pride myself on a 
 healthy knowledge of BEMANI, but no one's perfect.  If something's wrong, 
 tell me.

Q: I think a genre you have listed is incorrect.

A: Tell me what you think it should be, but present a good case, because I've 
 asked a lot of people about this subject.  However, if you're disputing a 
 genre that has a star (*) after it, then I won't bother, because those are 
 the official genres as Konami states.

Q: What song plays on Lesson Mode 1?

A: "Try 2 Luv. U" by S.F.M.P (featured in DDRMAX2).

Q: What song plays on Lesson Mode 2?

A: "A Stupid Barber" by Sho-T (featured in DDR Extreme).

Q: What song plays on Lesson Mode 3?

A: "BABY BABY GIMME YOUR LOVE" by DIVAS (featured in Konamix and DDRMAX).

Q: What song plays in the My Room screens?

A: "TOMORROW" by nc ft. Dreamscanner.

Q: What songs play over the Credits?

A: "Saturday Night Love" by Sota feat. Brenda V., followed by "SEDUCTION" by 
 nc ft. FINALFORCE.

Select Music

Use Left and Right to switch songs.  Tap Up or Down to change the difficulty.  
Press X or Circle to select.

Press Start to access the Quick Menu.  From here you can change the sorting 
of the list, save your progress, or check your records in one list.

Changing the sorting will change it from the default "by color" setup to an 
alphabetical list where you can pick the letter, to by BPM from slowest to 
fastest, and your "favorites", which is measured by the total score from all 
your plays of the song divided by the number of the difficulty each time you 
played.

Difficulties:

Beginner (BEG): Almost all songs are 1-footers.  You also have an on-screen 
 dancer stepping the steps along with you.  Don't play this for too long if 
 you wish to get better.
Light (LGT): Most songs range from 2 to 5 feet.  This is pretty simple if 
 you're getting used to DDR.
Standard (STD): Most songs range from 4 to 7 feet.  Largely, you'll find that 
 steps reflect how the music goes, as opposed to just being on the beat.
Heavy (HVY): Most songs range from 6 to 10 feet.  These are the tough ones 
 where they focus on two things: matching the song's notes exactly, and/or 
 kicking up the difficulty to give you pains.
Challenge (CHA): A special "second Heavy" difficulty.  Only certain songs have 
 this difficulty, some as the only difficulty.

At the bottom of the screen, you'll see the BPM for the song, which may be 
dynamic, which brackets the "Groove Radar", which gives a detailed look at 
the song.

Groove Radar: This is a graphical representation of the difficulty of the 
song.  It's broken down into five attributes:
- Stream: More or less the overall number of steps.
- Voltage: How many steps are sandwiched into how much time.  Higher voltage 
 means more steps in less time.
- Air: The overall number of double steps (time spent in the air).
- Freeze: The overall number and length of freeze arrows.
- Chaos: The number of weird steps (not straight 1/4 and 1/8, or steps that 
 force you turn as you step).

If you can't figure out what song you want, you can select ROULETTE.  This 
will start the song list rolling.  Press X to stop it.  It's tough to get it 
to stop on a song you want, though.  Once your song's picked, you can still 
adjust the difficulty.

Also, in this mix, you can select RANDOM.  This will automatically pick a 
random song at the current difficulty.  You will not be able to adjust 
anything once you hit the RANDOM button.

Select EDIT DATA and you pick some of the Edits you've thrown together.

---

Select Options

You must select the options at the bottom of the difficulty list in this mix.  
No, holding down X or Circle anymore.

Speed: This is the speed of the arrows on the screen.  It doesn't affect the 
 speed of the song, just the arrows.
Boost: If turned on, the arrows will gradually speed up as they move on the 
 game screen.
Appearance: "Visible" is the normal setting.  If "Hidden" is on, the arrows 
 will vanish about half-way.  If "Sudden" is on, the arrows will appear about 
 half-way.  If "Stealth" is on, you won't see the arrows at all.
Turn: "Off" is normal.  "Mirror" rotates all arrows 180 degrees.  "Left" 
 rotates them 90 degrees to the left.  "Right" in the other direction.  
 "Shuffle" specifically picks two sets of arrows and reverses their roles, 
 giving a new somewhat random selection that doesn't fall under Mirror, Left, 
 or Right.
Little: Turning this on will remove all non-quarter notes from the song.  It 
 won't give you a good chance for a high score, though.
Dark: Turning this on will remove the Step Zone from the screen.
Simultaneous Step: Turning this to "Off 1" will make all jumps into single 
 steps.  Turning this to "Off 2" will remove jumps entirely.
Scroll: "Standard" is normal bottom to top scrolling.  "Reverse" is, oddly 
 enough, scrolling from top to bottom.
Freeze Arrow: You can turn the Freeze Arrows off.
Step: Another chance to change the difficulty of your song.

---

Are You Ready?

The main field consists of the arrows and the Step Zone, which is a line of 
arrows on the screen.  As the song plays, arrows will begin scrolling along 
the screen.  As the arrows reach the Step Zone, you need to step on those 
arrows.  If you see a green Freeze Arrow, you need to step on that arrow and 
hold it until the Freeze Arrow ends (you don't need to remove your foot when 
it ends, just stay on it until it ends, and move your foot at your leisure).

On the top of the screen is the Dance Meter.  It starts about half full.  As 
you step properly, it'll fill more.  If you misstep, your Dance Meter will 
start emptying.  If it empties completely, game over.

On the bottom of the screen is the difficulty (in case you forgot), and your 
score as it tallies up.

Also in the middle of the screen, you'll see words pop up as you step:

MARVELLOUS: You stepped precisely on the arrow.  This needs to be turned on 
 in the Options to see in Free Play Mode, but is automatically on in Advanced 
 and Training Mode.  For Free Play, it's ranked no better than a PERFECT.
PERFECT: You stepped more or less precisely on the arrow.  Combo continues, 
 the dance meter increases, and you get the maximum possible score from that 
 step.
GREAT: You just about stepped on the arrow.  Combo continues, the dance meter 
 increases, and you get half the maximum possible score for the step.
GOOD: You're off on the step by a bit.  Combo stops, but the dance meter 
 doesn't change.  You get no points.
ALMOST: You're off on the step by quite a bit.  Combo stops, and your dance 
 meter decreases.  You get no points.
BOO: You completely missed the step.  Combo stops, and your dance meter 
 decreases.  You get no points.

OK!: You stepped on the whole Freeze Arrow.  You get the normal maximum score 
 for a step.
NG: You stepped off the Freeze Arrow before it ended. Combo continues, but 
 your Dance Meter will decrease.  You get no points.

Also marked on the screen is your combo, which is how many PERFECTS and GREATS 
you have in a row.  The announcer will tell you when you hit 100 combo, 200, 
etc.

---

Evaluation

Once you complete the song, you'll see an Evaluation Screen.  You'll receive 
a letter grade, a tally on how many of each step you got, your maximum combo, 
and your score.  

Scoring is measured by the following algorithm:

X = The total number of standard steps (double steps count as one) + 
  (2 * the total number of Freeze Arrows)

Y = 70,000,000 / X

Each PERFECT and OK is worth Y points.  Each GREAT is worth Y/2 points.  All 
other types of steps are worth no points.

So, your maximum possible score is 7 million, plus however many bonus points 
you've received, which maxes at 10 million, I haven't figured out the bonus 
algorithm, yet.

The grades are AAA, AA, A, B, C, D, and E.

The letter grade is determined by tallying up the number of Dance Points you 
scored in the song (see above for how each step gives you Dance Points).

E is a failing grade.
D, C, B, and A are progressive grades based on your score (including bonus).
AA is given for a large score.  To get this, you'll have to get a full 
 combo, since you get about an extra million bonus points for the full combo.  
AAA is given for all PERFECTs and OKs on Freeze Arrows.

In addition to the letter, you'll get a star if you have a full combo.

EyeToy Play

Plug an EyeToy into one of the USB ports, then fire up Free Play Mode.  The 
game will ask if you wish to use the EyeToy, then give you the style.  It 
will give you the additional style select of "Hands & Feet".  After selecting 
that, you'll go to the song select screen.

You'll notice there are additional markers on the difficulties.  Next to 
every difficulty is a set of handprints.  These are how difficult the hand 
motions are for this song, on a level of one to two.  Also available is a 
special "Hands & Feet" step difficulty which focuses the steps so they 
compliment the hand motions.

As you play, you'll have an image of what the EyeToy sees transposed onto the 
screen.  You need to move the image of yourself onto hand prints when they 
scroll up to the Step Zone.

In addition, if you wish, you can just select the usual Single, Versus, or 
Double while using the EyeToy and you get the same "Watch Me Dance" from 
Extreme USA.  Added to the "Quick Menu" (START button) is the selection of 
"Camera", where you can check what the camera's seeing.

3D. Dancing Tips for the Beginner =
===================================

KEEP PRACTICING!

So, you've just got into DDR, eh?  Good for you!  You've become a part of a 
cult sensation that still holds tons of respect in arcades across the country!  
This game will probably seem quite overwhelming to you at first, especially 
if you watch people play it and watch them do 9-footers.  Don't sweat it.  
You CAN be as good as them with the proper practice and effort.

If you really want to get into this, definitely use the Official DDR Pad.  
There's no PS2 controller to use in the arcades, so learn the pad nice and 
early.  Most game stores have a few of these tucked away (possibly more, if 
Konami's hyping this game like they should).  If you're truly a beginner, you 
may just want to start with a nice cheap pad.  That way, if you find it's not 
for you, you're not out a huge investment.

So, to begin, use the Lesson Mode the game provides you.  It will walk you 
through the basics and coach you to be a better dancer.  

Despite the Lesson Mode, here are some tips I can give you as a beginner:

1. Get a good feeling for the beat.  People who have performed with music have 
an advantage.  People in marching band have a serious advantage.  ~_^  You'll 
be stepping to the beat in these early stages, so get used to it now.

2. Now that you have the beat, you must "find the arrows".  Yeah, sure.  I 
know they're right there in front of you, to your sides, and behind you, but 
can you hit them without looking?  Early on, you'll find that's your biggest 
problem: taking a step and not landing on the arrow.  If you have to look, 
look, but that tactic won't last forever, so before a song takes off, take 
some cursory steps to make sure you're hitting arrows.

3. Keep your center.  Especially on cheap pads with no definition, you'll find 
yourself often taking leave of the center of the pad as you continue stepping.  
If there's a break in the song, look down to make sure you're in the center.  

4. Use the balls of your feet.  You may notice, after some days of a lot of 
playing, that your ankles will start hurting.  That's normal, and it's 
happened to most everyone I know that DDRs.  This is your feet telling you to 
not step with your heels, but with the front of the foot.  Get into that 
habit.

5. Now that you have these basics, and the Lesson Mode (largely) completed, 
head into Beginner Mode and start tackling songs.  In particular, get used to 
the speed of the songs, as well as the speeding-up, slowing-down, and stopping 
some songs do.  When that just gets too easy, take a deep breath and head into 
the real DDR world with Light Mode.  Try to keep your songs at three feet or 
below, but don't be afraid to venture out into the great unknown.

=======================================
3E. Dancing Tips for the Intermediate =
=======================================

KEEP PRACTICING!

Well, you're definitely not a n00b anymore (pardon my French).  You're at the 
point where you wouldn't completely humiliate yourself at the arcades, but 
you probably won't impress many people there.  In fact, you may just bore them 
with your simple steps.  It's time to go to the next level.

At this point in your career, it's time to consider a new pad.  For me, this 
meant going to redoctane.com and ordering their standard soft pad.  This pad 
has a soft bottom which won't slip or bunch up as much.  It's still not a 
serious pad, but you could do worse with fifty bucks.

So, first tip is to KNOW THE SONGS.  You don't necessarily need to memorize 
the steps, but have a basic understanding of the song before you go into it.  
Even memorize the music itself, the lyrics, etc. so you can whistle along.  
Know where the tempo changes may occur, where stops are.  Most importantly, 
know where the songs musical notes occur in the melody, because these will 
be mostly what you step.

Now that we're heading into dangerous territory, there is one big rule that 
I have to stress right away:

Remember how in the last part I told you to "find your center"?  Well, you've 
found it by now, so now it's time to GET OFF IT.  That's a crutch that's 
let you into the game, but it will hold you back later on.  What you have to 
learn is to return your feet to the center as rarely as possible, if at all.  
Move your feet from one arrow to the next, and don't move them unless you have 
an arrow to go to.  This is probably the hardest thing you'll ever have to 
learn as a DDR player.  Once you've relinquished your grip on the center, you 
only stand to improve up to the highest reaches of DDR-dom.

This actually leads to the other major point of going intermediate:

Eighth notes.  Those are those off-colored ones.  You'll have to deal with 
a lot of them, so learn to love them now.  This is actually a good first step 
to leaving the center, because you are absolutely required to step three or 
more arrows in succession, and you'll have no time to return to the center at 
all.  Use groups of three eighth notes to figure how to properly move between 
arrows; combinations such as up-left-down, where your right foot goes on up, 
left foot goes on left, and your right foot is already carrying back towards 
the down arrow, for example.  Once you get strings of three down, you'll be 
ready to tackle longer strings, of four, five, seven, even nine if they're 
not too tangly.

So, for this end, you'll want to go for songs of four to six feet in 
difficulty, as well as treading into the pink pink waters of Standard Mode.  
Just about all songs of this difficulty have at least several eighth notes 
to give you practice.  Take these opportunities to develop your step 
combinations for your own style, so you'll be ready to use them when they 
appear again in harder songs.

Also, it may behoove you to get into Workout Mode or Endless Mode and 
repeatedly hammer some songs, particularly those of a brisk pace.  This is a 
good first step to building up all-important stamina.

===================================
3F. Dancing Tips for the Advanced =
===================================

KEEP PRACTICING!

All right.  You're through messing around, and through getting condescending 
looks from your peers at the arcade.  It's time to show them what you can 
really do and kick it up a notch or three.

If you're really serious now, it's once again time for a new pad.  Although 
7, 8, and even some 9-footers are possible on a soft, flimsy pad, you just 
won't get the high scores you cherish.  For this, I turned to RedOctane's 
Ignition 2.0.  It's also a soft pad, but the thick foam insert, soft gripping 
bottom, and raised step platforms make it a good pad for aspiring champions, 
all for a paltry 100 clams.

Of course, if you have the money to blow (approximately $300), you may want 
to take it even further and buy the Cobalt Flux pad, which is a custom-made 
hard metal pad.  It's VERY resilient, and much like pads you'll see in the 
arcades.

Anyway, pads aside, it's time to get down to business:

First, you better have mastered the stuff from the previous sections.  I want 
to be able to yell out a song title and for you to hum it right there so you 
know what it sounds like.  I don't wanna see your feet touch that center, 
soldier, or you'll drop and give me fifty.  At this point, you should also 
have quick enough eye-foot coordination so that matching arrows on the screen 
with proper steps is second-nature.

Now, for some new tactics:

Chaos.  You'll soon find as you reach the higher levels, that not all arrows 
are quarter notes and eighth notes.  You'll find sixteenths, twelfths, and 
thirty-second notes thrown in to mess you up.  Very rarely will they be in 
random.  Almost always, they'll match up with how the song goes, so you'll 
at least have that going for you.  So, a thorough knowledge of the songs will 
allow you to surmount this hurdle with little difficulty.

Taps.  This is the name I like to give eighth notes all on the same arrow.  
These are always a pain, because you have to train your foot to tap rapidly on 
the same arrow for a possibly long time, and it can really wear you out.  
There's no easy way to get around this, you just have to learn it as you go.

Gallops.  This is the popular name for a series of steps that has two 
sixteenth note steps together, then two sixteen notes of dead space, then two 
note steps together, and so on.  When you step these notes, you'll feel like 
a horse gallopping, which derives the name.  Oftentimes, these notes will be 
strung so that the last note in one gallop is the first note of the next 
gallop.  To properly step these, leave your last-stepping foot in place, so 
it'll be ready to step the next gallop while your other foot moves to the 
next note.  This leads to the final tactic.

Axis of Rotation or "crossovers".  Contrary to popular belief, you do not have 
to have your upper body directly facing the screen at all times.  A very 
important tactic for the toughest songs is turning your body so that making 
truly difficult steps becomes easier.  Using alternating feet on long series' 
of eighth notes is far less taxing than taking two or more eighth notes with 
one foot.  The best way to start turning your body is with left-down-right 
eighth note combos.  Left foot on the left arrow, right foot on the down, and 
turn so that your left foot hits the right arrow.  It'll be very disorienting 
at first, but the hard songs will really take it out of you if you don't 
learn.  After learning a basic turn, learn to maintain your body at a 90 
degree angle to the screen for extended periods of time, and then taking it 
further by rotating 180 degrees, or even 270 and 360, if you're brave enough 
to take your eyes off the screen.

Finally, it's important to be in relatively good shape for this.  You have to 
have the proper stamina and leg strength to pull off the toughest ones, 
because rather dexterous and tiring feats will be required of you, so keep 
pounding at it, do hard songs repeatedly to build up strength, and push 
yourself harder and harder to go all the way up to the great green Heavy 
Mode.

And lastly, never tackle 10-footers without a good insurance plan backing 
you up. ^_^

==============================
3G. Dancing Tips for Doubles =
==============================

KEEP PRACTICING!

Get ready to relearn DDR all over again as you branch out towards the second 
pad.

First of all, it'd be best you get good pads for this.  Soft flat mats are 
just no good at all, since they'll slide apart and over each other.  Even 
Ignition Pads are tough for this, since they can move as well, unless you 
can find some way to lash them together.  The best, naturally, is the Cobalt 
Flux dual setup, which you can connect.

Okay, you probably should begin your Doubles career after at least mastering 
Standard on Single, but it's best on Heavy.

One of the greatest things to "unlearn" from Single Play is to be able to 
move your entire body.  When playing Single, you'll generally maintain your 
upper body in one place spatially, but that definitely won't fly on Doubles.

Crossovers take on a whole new meaning when playing on higher levels on 
Double Play.  In a general sense, you'll be playing with your left foot on 
the right arrow on the left pad, while your right foot will be on the left 
arrow on the right pad.  A lot of the stepcharts on Doubles are engineered so 
you dance around that setup.

After that, it's all pretty much getting used to the new setup.  Practice and 
practice some more.  Build up your stamina, learn how to read eight arrows, 
and know where to step.

BEG: 1
LGT: 3   3
STD: 5   5
HVY: 7   7

Heavy Notes: Quite easy, even for a seven-footer.  The only time you'll have 
 streams of any length is on the chorus, and the only tough part about those 
 is that they'll make you crossover a bit.

Lyrics: 

How can you just walk away from me
When all I can do is watch you leave
'Cause we've shared the laughter and the pain
And even shared the tears
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now
'Cause there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against the odds
That is what I've gotta take

I wish I could just make you turn around
Turn around and see me cry
There's so much I need to say to you
So many reasons why
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now 
'Cause there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face

Take a good look at me now 
'Cause I'll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
It's the chance I've got to take

 another.  The second involves following the synthesizers in chaotic 
 patterns.  The patterns are generally more trouble, involving odd gallops 
 that end up throwing you around the pad.

Lyrics: 

Traveling somewhere, could be anywhere
There's a coldness in the air but I don't care
We drift deeper

Traveling somewhere, could be anywhere
There's a coldness in the air but I don't care
We drift deeper into the sound
Life goes on
We drift deeper into the sound 
Feeling strong
So bring it on
So bring it on

Embrace me
Surround me as the rush comes
Embrace me
Surround me as the rush comes
Embrace me
Surround me as the rush comes
Oh, embrace me
Surround me as the rush comes

So bring it on
So bring it on

We drift deeper into the sound

We drift deeper into the sound...

We are what we're supposed to be
Illusions of your fantasy
All dots and lines that speak and say

Our friends are so unreasonable
They do the unpredictable
All dots and lines that speak and say
What we do is what you wish to do

It's all an orchestra of strings
Doing unbelievable things
Frame by frame, to the extreme
One by one we're making it fun

We are the cartoon heroes, oh
We are the ones who are gonna last forever
We came out of a crazy mind, oh
And walked out on a piece of paper and...

Here comes Spiderman, arachnophobian
Welcome to the toon town party
Here comes Superman, from never neverland
Welcome to the toon town party
There's still more to come
And everyone will be
Welcomed at the toon (toon) town (town) party

Lyrics: 

I look and stare so deep in your eyes
I touch on you more and more every time
When you leave I'm begging you not to go
Call your name two or three times in a row
Such a funny thing for me to try to explain
How I'm feeling and my pride is the one to blame
'Cause I know I don't understand
Just how your love you're doing no one else can

Got me looking so crazy right now, your love's
Got me looking so crazy right now (in love)
Got me looking so crazy right now, your touch
Got me looking so crazy right now (your touch)
Got me hoping you'll page me right now, your kiss 
Got me hoping you'll save me right now 
Looking so crazy in love's
Got me looking, got me looking so crazy in love.

Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh no, no
Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh no, no
Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh no, no
Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh no, no

When I talk to my friends so quietly
Who he think he is? Look at what you did to me
Tennis shoes, don't even need to buy a new dress
If you ain't there ain't nobody else to impress
The way that you know what I thought I knew
It's the beat my heart skips when I'm with you
But I still don't understand,
Just how the love you're doing no one else can.

Got me looking so crazy right now, your love's
Got me looking so crazy right now (in love)
Got me looking so crazy right now, your touch
Got me looking so crazy right now (your touch)
Got me hoping you'll page me right now, your kiss 
Got me hoping you'll save me right now 
Looking so crazy in love's,
Got me looking, got me looking so crazy in love.

Lyrics: 

I feel like I've been locked up tight 
For a century of lonely nights 
Waiting for someone 
To release me 

You're licking your lips and blowing kisses my way 
But that don't mean I'm gonna give it away 
Baby, baby, baby 
(baby, baby, baby) 

I'm a genie in a bottle, baby 
Gotta rub me the right way, honey 
I'm a genie in a bottle, baby 
Come, come, come and let me out 

I'm a genie in a bottle, baby 
I'm a genie in a bottle, baby 
I'm a genie in a bottle, baby 
I'm a genie in a bottle, baby, baby, baby (etc.)

Oh, whoa
Oh, whoa

If you wanna be with me, baby 
There's a price you pay 
I'm a genie in a bottle 
You gotta rub me the right way 
If you wanna be with me 
I can make your wish come true 
You gotta make a big impression 
I gotta like what you do 

If you wanna be with me, baby 
There's a price you pay 
I'm a genie in a bottle 
You gotta rub me the right way 
If you wanna be with me 
I can make your wish come true 
You gotta make a big impression 
I gotta like what you do

Lyrics: 

First I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live
Without you by my side
But, I spent so many nights
Thinking how you did me wrong
I grew strong
I learned how to carry on
And so you're back
From outer space
I just walked in to find you here
With that sad look upon your face
I should have changed my stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second
You'd be back to bother me

Go on now go walk out the door
Just turn around now
'Cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
You think I'd crumble
You think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I

I will survive
As long as I know how to love
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
and I'll survive
I will survive

I will survive

I will survive

Difficulty:

BEG: 1
LGT: 3   4
STD: 5   5
HVY: 7   7

Heavy Notes: The beginning is simple short streams.  All seems nice until the 
 chorus, which the first time through is one long stream, which stops.  The 
 second chorus is ANOTHER long stream, which continues on past to the 
 instrumental chorus.  These streams aren't fast, but they have their share 
 of crossovers.  The end has a little bit of chaos for spice.

---

Lyrics: 

In the heat of the night
In the heat of the night

Why did our feelings die in action?
When we fought for satisfaction?
But our hearts sent S.O.S.
Please save me
Why did our love lose all its magic?
Missing you is kind of tragic
We were heatin' for the best

In the heat of the night
Much too close to the fire
And the power of our hearts
Made us weak by desire

In the heat of the night
Much too close to the fire
And the power of our hearts
Made us weak by desire

In the heat of the night
In the heat of the night
In the heat of the night (tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight.)

Heavy Notes: Very spirited.  Long streams, plenty of crossovers.  The verse 
 section in the middle has gallops for added flavor.  Don't expect much else, 
 just a lot of it.

Lyrics: 

Tout m'entraîne
Irrésistiblement vers toi, comme le vent
Tout m'enchaîne
Irrésistiblement à toi, je le sens

Comme la mer qui frappé le rocher
Obstinément sans jamais désarmer
Par le malheur on est souvent frappé
Mais l'amour seul peut nous sauver

Tout m'entraîne
Irrésistiblement vers toi, comme le vent
Tout m'enchaîne
Irrésistiblement à toi, je le sens

English Translation:

Everything carries me
Irresistibly to you, like the wind
Everything connects me
Irresistibly to you, I feel it

Like the sea hitting the rocks
Obstinately without ever ceasing
By misfortune we are always hitting
But love alone can save us

Everything carries me
Irresistibly to you, like the wind
Everything connects me
Irresistibly to you, I feel it

BEG: 1
LGT: 3   3

HVY: 7   7

Heavy Notes: Mid-length streams for most of this song.  Places to keep your 
 eyes open are where percussion gets heavy: both just after the beginning and 
 just before the chorus, because the steps will get chaotic to follow the 
 drums.  Watch on the main melody, because the third line has an extra step in 
 the beginning of the stream.

Lyrics: 

Go go go (go go go)
Ale ale ale (ale ale ale)

Go (go)
Go (go)
Go go go go go here we go
Si!

The cup of life, this is the one
Now is the time, don't ever stop
Push it along, gotta be strong
Push it along, right to the top

Como Cain y Abel, es un partido cruel
Tienes que pelear, por una estrella
Consigue con honor, la copa del amor
Para sobrevivir y luchar por ella (yeah)
Luchar por ella (yeah)
Do you really want it... (si)

Here we go, ale ale ale
Go go go, ale ale ale
Tonight's the night, we're gonna celebrate

Arriba va, el mundo esta de pie
Go go go, ale ale ale

Heavy Notes: Deceptively tricky.  Seems simple in the opener, with some offbeat 
 hits, then we get to the bridge, which has quite a few odd steps, gallops, 
 sixteenths.  That calms down in the later stanzas, but it's still there up 
 to the end.

Lyrics: 

For all the times that we
We ever wouldn't be
Look at us, baby
Look at us now
For everyday that I
Should have you by my side
We'll make it baby
Look at us now

For every night I pray
I know that you will stay
Look at us, baby
Look at us now
Remembering the time
Our love was made so fine
We made it baby
Look at us now
Baby, look at us

(Everybody believed we would never be) Baby, look at us
(Look at us up above, we are so in love) Baby, look at us
(Everyday in your arms, baby can't go wrong) Baby, look at us
(We are strong, look at us now) Baby, look at us

Baby, look at us
Baby, look at us
Baby, look at us

For every night I dream
Together you and me
Look at us, baby
Look at us now
And like a flower blooms
The glowing of the moon
We'll make it baby
Look at us now

For everyone believed
That we could never be
Look at us, baby
Look at us now
Now all the hurt is gone
I knew it all along
We made it, baby
Look at us now
Baby, look at us

Oh baby, baby

Heavy Notes: The only thing of note here is the off-beats that appear in the 
 latter half of many of the measures in this song.  It's classic funk, and 
 it goes for much of the first half, and then it settles into basic streams 
 with just a couple of gallops.

Playing in a rock-n-roll band
I never had no problems (yeah)
Rolling down the one night stands

I decided so quickly (Yes I did)
To disco down and check out the show

And they were dancin' 
And singin' 
And movin' to the groovin'
And just when 
It hit me
Somebody turned around and shouted

Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down the boogie
And play that funky music till you die (till you die)

 chaotic steps that follow the music.  It gets really messy near the end, so 
 stay sharp.

Heavy Notes: The opening is relatively tame, only watch the offbeat freezes.  
 The song truly picks up once the synth takes over, where you'll have a 
 multi-crossover stream with sixteenths in-between.  Focus hard on that.  
 After that, you're mostly focused on chaotic but more spaced steps.

Lyrics:

Yeh, yeh yeh yeh yeh

Go ahead and release 
It's a wonderful night

You know the music search engine need a tune-up 
Soon as they out the gate they all a wanna hear da corner, uh-huh 
Well that was cool but now but then I heard a rumor, uh-huh 
Your crew was ridin' for the White Cliffs of Dover, uh-huh

Uh, let me tell ya how we do it in California 
We'll have you on the run just like a puma 
If it don't move us 
Ain't paid ya dues and it ain't gonna get our roosers 
We gonna lose ya to the consumer solution c'mon 

It's a wonderful night 
You've gotta take it from me 
It's a wonderful night 

Come on and break it on down 

It's a wonderful night 
You've gotta shake it for me 
It's a wonderful night 

Come on and break it on down 

Girl I want it you got it 
Your body's like a narcotic 
The thought is auto-erotic 

Come on and break it on down 

Can I get it on credit 
I guess your brick-house I'll bet it 
Take it as far as you'll let it 

Come on and break it on down 

That the spot will get hot 
That its ready to pop 
Don't even look at the clock 
All of your problems forgotten 
It's time to rock till you drop 
Feel the force and just flock 
To the epicenter of the party's bass drummers c'mon 

It's a wonderful night 
You've gotta take it from me 
It's a wonderful night

It's a wonderful night 
You've gotta shake it for me 
It's a wonderful night

5. GREEN SONGS (NEW KONAMI ORIGINALS)
******************************************************************************

All these songs need to be unlocked except for "You gotta move it".  They're 
all new to the Playstation DDR scene.  Some have appeared in the X-BOX 
Ultramixes, but those aren't counted by KCET, apparently.

UNLOCK: Mission B-08

Artist: NAOKI
Genre: Ultra Rock Beat
BPM: 150

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 1
LGT: 3   3
STD: 5   5
HVY: 7   7

Heavy Notes: Mostly small streams throughout.  The opener has a few gallops, 
 but they're separated for an easy feel.  A few times you'll come from streams 
 to a jump.  Not too much to sweat about.

Lyrics: 

Ooooooo

Ooooooo (Go, go!)

Ohhhh!

Play it four on the floor 
Gonna turn it loose
Move your sexy legs
And you'll feel the groove

Gonna go really far
Go, step for me now
Let the party go on
In a way, you're going fine by me (Ohhh, ohhh)

C'mon, move like this
Wait too long, you've got nothing right there
Where you're standing, hell yeah, I'm the man
What else do you expect from my beautiful baby?

I want to take you where 
(I want to take you where)
 (Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go c'mon!)
We can party (We can party)
From dusk 'til dawn (1998!)

I know you feel (I know you feel)
 (Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go c'mon!)
Like letting go (Let it go)
The music will make you high
The music has the power

Part two, are you with that (You can take me higher)
Tell me how you feel, make your body sweat 
Like a sheer taste, start things again (You can take me higher)
Go X and Y, moving free

Party down, fellas live your dreams (You can take me higher)
Stay, don't miss the power again
Free that mind, work your body 'til you're wet and soakin'
 (Oh, you can take me higher)
We're hot and smokin'! 

You've got to free your mind (Let it go, let it go, let it go!)
And then (C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon!)
Work that body (Work that body)
Come on get down (1998!)

Oh, go with me (oh, go with me)
 (Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go c'mon!)
And let it go (Gotta let it go) 
The music will make you hot (Make you hot)
The music has the power

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: DDR Extreme (Arcade)

5B. ABSOLUTE (Cuff-N-Stuff it Mix) =
====================================

UNLOCK: Mission X-19

Artist: Thuggie D.
Genre: Epic Trance
BPM: 144

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 1
LGT: 3   4
STD: 6   7
HVY: 6   7

Play Notes: The end of this song slows down considerably right to the last 
 note.

Heavy Notes: Definitely not as tough as the original.  It's mostly small 
 streams.  The thing that might throw you is the large number of freezes, and 
 a few odd tricks they try do with them.

---

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: DDR Ultramix
Artist Notes: Thuggie D. is a psuedonym for "Gamebeat", a sound group that 
 Konami of Hawaii hired to create new songs for Ultramix.  They're headed by 
 Darryl S. Duncan, most probably where the "D" came from.  This is a remix of 
 the classic tune of the same name by dj TAKA, featured in DDR Konamix and 
 DDR Extreme USA.
Misc. Notes: The stepcharts are actually taken from DDR Festival, which is a 
 slightly modified version of the original DDR Ultramix charts.

BPM: 130

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 1
LGT: 3   2
STD: 5   5
HVY: 7   8

Heavy Notes: The streams are quite small in this song, and pretty simple.  
 You'll find a few crossovers, but they're also simple.  The only part that 
 could trip you up would be a few odd freeze arrows in the beginning and end.

---

First Appearance: beatmania 6th Mix
DDR Debut: DDR Extreme (Arcade)
American Apperances: DDR Ultramix 2
Artist Notes: DJ SIMON is Kiyotaka Sugimoto, a BEMANI artist with a healthy 
 amount of beatmania and pop'n music tunes.

BPM: 185

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 2
LGT: 3   3
STD: 6   6
HVY: 9   8

Heavy Notes: The really hard parts of this song are when the rhythmic euro 
 synth notes play, which means long streams, often which go all the way 
 around the pad.  At the end, the last stream has lots of jumps in it.

Lyrics: 

Everyone's hypnotized! (and variations on that)

Song Type: Konami Original

HVY: 7   7

Heavy Notes: Small to mid-length streams.  Quite a few freezes.  A bit of 
 crossovers, and some offbeats when the melody plays (with its buzzed vocals 
 that I can't make out for the life of me).

---

Heavy Notes: Mostly small streams, and offbeat steps.  Mid-length streams 
 start showing up near the end with crossovers, but it never gets too 
 complicated.  It's just fast.

Lyrics (English words are capitalized): 

Sweet Lover... yeah, yeah, yay

English Translation:

Sweet lover... yeah yeah yeah...
Doo-doo-doodoo doo doo doodoo do
La la la, forever...

Like a dream, soon things like 
I've only imagined before will come to me.
This love song marks the beginning because 
now you're the only one who can turn my feelings to love. 

Everyday and everywhere a rainbow spreads across our hearts
All seven colors of that melody flow into the sky as far as we can see.
Everyday and every time, echoing in our hearts
Is a sweet harmony that will encompass our love as long as we are here. 

La la lala... 
Oooohh, yeah! 

Everyday and everywhere, make sure of the love again
As we go, this feeling keeps on going, just like this song!
Everyday and every time, I'll always bring you
The rhythm that'll make you love me forever!

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: DDRMAX2: DDR 7th Mix (Arcade)
American Appearances: DDR Ultramix
Artist Notes: Riyu Kosaka is the most recognizable member of Konami's own 
 J-pop group: Be For U.  Check DIVE for more info on them.
Misc. Notes: The original instrumental version, CANDY *, appears in DDRMAX 
 USA and DDR Ultramix 3.  Also, it's worth noting that the steps in DDR 
 Ultramix were the incorrect steps for the song (they used CANDY *'s).

LGT: 3   3
STD: 5   5
HVY: 7   7
CHA: 9   9

Heavy Notes: This song is mostly small streams with just a few crossovers.  
 There's a little bit of chaos in the beginning to match the song.  Also, 
 there's a series of tough freeze steps in the middle.

Challenge Notes: MUCH tougher.  Sixteenths are dotted all over the place and 
 there are some more difficult streams to deal with.  There are a couple of 
 opportunities to face multiple clusters of sixteenths in a row.

Lyrics:

Feelin' blue
I'm thinking of you
And I was a fool to let you walk away (walk away)
Tears in my eyes today
Make my world
The color of blue

Red with a twist
Orange of fire
Green of tourmaline
Yellow, mellow, hello, hello
Paint me a smile
I am covered and colored with one, only one

'Cause baby I'm alone
Alone without you
What am I supposed to do?
I'm alone
Alone without you
I'm the color of blue

Feelin' blue
I'm thinking of you
And I was a fool to let you walk away
Tears in my eyes today
Make my world
The color of blue

Feelin' blue
I'm thinking of you
And I was a fool to let you walk away
Tears in my eyes today
Make my world
The color of blue

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: beatmania IIDX 6th Style
DDR Debut: DDR Extreme (Arcade)
American Appearances: DDR Ultramix
Artist Notes: dj TAKA should be no stranger to BEMANI fans.  Often considered 
 to be just as popular (if not moreso) than Naoki, Takayuki Ishikawa has been 
 with Konami since beatmania IIDX.  He's done many DDR and beatmania tunes.  
 The vocalist is listed as Chiyoko, a psuedonym for Sunny James, vocalist of 
 HIGHER.
Misc. Notes: The (for EXTREME) tag denotes that it's a shortened version of 
 the original Colors (Radio Edit).

UNLOCK: Mission C-34

Artist: Des-ROW feat. TSUBOI for ALPHA
Genre: Hip Rock*
BPM: 143-172

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 1
LGT: 3   3
STD: 6   5
HVY: 8   8
CHA: 8   9

Play Notes: The song starts at 143, then picks up to 172 about a third of the 
 way through.

Heavy Notes: It's all streams, following the lyrics, naturally.  The streams 
 aren't particularly long, mostly seven-steps for the most part with a few 
 getting longer (except the last few lines, which is one long stream), but the 
 steps themselves tend to involve crossovers a lot.  There are also a few 
 jumps that end off the streams.

Challenge Notes: It's not TOO much harder (same foot-rating, after all), but 
 it's a bit more complicated in the streams.  There are several streams that 
 repeated arrows of the same kind (taps), and more jumps ending streams.

English Translation:

Nonsense language from a rotating head, high tension and a firm beat
From a 5-match janken match I guide comes tactics for big opinions
Nonsense language from a rotating head, high tension and a firm beat
From a 5-match janken match I guide comes tactics for big opinions

35 plus 4 divided by 2, the partygoers who don't burst open don't know
This sociable sound demon screwing into an obtuse angle easily
They dunno where from or where to, but anyway he divided the sound
Everyone's winding chatter is a dangling handkerchief

An alteration in the radar and in the nonsense coming over the airwaves
If you start snorin', your heartbeat that's goin' up as much as your 
 personality changes
Is really greedy, but there's power and land of the priest's staff
And since I was born, I've kept on playin' like this.

Nonsense language from a rotating head, high tension and a firm beat
From a 5-match janken match I guide comes tactics for big opinions
Nonsense language from a rotating head, high tension and a firm beat
From a 5-match janken match I guide comes tactics for big opinions

From 3rd street to 4th streeth, from main street to the carnal desires
Pack up the duties left to you, take it all gently
Really, you don't have to worry if you extend over to this slow train
Don Pach Don Pach Don Today, on this Japanese island where they're sexin' it up

From 3rd street to 4th streeth, from main street to the carnal desires,
Pack up the duties left to you, take it all gently,
Really, you don't have to worry if you extend over to this slow train.
Don Pach Don Pach Don Today, on this Japanese island where they're sexin' it up
Don Pach Don Pach Don Today, on this Japanese island where they're sexin' it up
Don Pach Don Pach Don Today, on this Japanese island where they're sexin' it up

That time, that time, I give respect, we'll break it all apart, yo, just like

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: pop'n music 6
DDR Debut: DDR Extreme (Arcade)
Artist Notes: See BE LOVIN for info on Des-ROW, also known as D-Crew.  ALPHA 
 is a group that's done its share of BEMANI work.
Misc. Notes: "Dai kenkai" means "big opinion" in Japanese.  "Janken", is more 
 locally known as "Rock, Paper, Scissors".  "Don Pach" is one of two things, 
 a popular Japanese confectionary similar to pop rocks, or the sound a 
 machine gun makes (probably the latter).  Oh, and the lyrics are really not 
 supposed to make sense.

Lyrics:

Happy your Happy your Happy your lovely Wedding
Happy your Happy your I say to you every night
Happy your Happy your every every morning

You dream about him every night
but soon he sleeps by your side
You can touch hand and hand
and having a lovely lovely dream

In your imagination I guess
It's not the goal but only beginning
Hundred years or more
Don't forget to say "I love you!"

Happy your Happy your Happy your lovely Wedding
Happy your Happy your I say to you every night
Happy your Happy your Happy so sweet Wedding
Happy your Happy your every every morning

Happy your Happy your Happy your lovely Wedding
Happy your Happy your I say to you every night
Happy your Happy your Happy so sweet Wedding
Happy your Happy your every every morning

Happy your Happy your Happy your lovely Wedding
Happy your Happy your I say to you every night

BEG: 2
LGT: 4   4
STD: 6   6

Play Notes: About halfway through the second verse, the songs slows down on 
 "Lightning streak!"  At the final chorus, the song slows down again just 
 after "Nobody get in my way!"

Heavy Notes: This song's a swing song, and almost all the steps are triplets.  
 The steps aren't all that difficult, but the fast tempo can trip you up.

---

Lyrics:

I'm a cool cat making waves all over town
When they see me coming everybody's heads turn 'round
With my twin cam, dual exhaust, and my ragtop down

I'm a ladies' man, just a terrible lousy freak
I'll call your daughter, any day of the week
With attention to the chrome, I'm a LIGHTNING STREAK!

Heaven is a '57 metallic gray!
Nobody get in my way!

BPM: 65-130

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 1
LGT: 4   3
STD: 5   7
HVY: 7   7

Play Notes: The song begins at 65 BPM, then speeds up after a few measures to 
 130 for the rest of the song.

Heavy Notes: This song is pretty basic for much of the first half, simple 
 streams and freezes.  Once you get past the main chorus, it changes tack to 
 follow the piano, and later the saxophone, so expect some gallops and 
 chaotic steps.

---

Lyrics: 

Ooooo, ohhhh, yeah, yeah

Ohhhhh

The promise of love turns to happiness
I lose myself, whenever I'm with you
The prince that I've waited for all of my life
And that tells me we're gonna do it

I need you, need you
There ain't no doubt in my mind, oh...
Believe that our love will last
Forever 'til the end of time

Ohhhh

Believe, believe, believe

Believe, believe

BEG: 1
LGT: 2   2

Heavy Notes: The greatest difficulty is the song's length, nearly two minutes.
 However, the steps aren't particularly difficult.  Just some lengthy streams 
 and delayed chaos steps.

Challenge Notes: Two very VERY long streams in this song, one right at the 
 beginning, another at the halfway points, with freezes in it.  When not in 
 those streams, you'll alternate between gallops and short streams.

DDR Debut: DDR Ultramix
Artist Notes: Toshiyuki Kakuta is L.E.D., and started his Konami career in

Play Notes: There are two stops in this song, one several seconds in before 
 the song fully gets underway, and another just before the big chorus.

Heavy Notes: This is a swing song, and makes no excuses for it.  All streams, 
 while not particularly difficult, have swing notes, which should be easy to 
 follow if you can keep with the rhythm.  There are also a couple of spots 
 with twelfth-note clusters to watch for.

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: beatmania IIDX 11 RED
DDR Debut: BRAND NEW
Artist Notes: Akira Yamaoka is best known as the composer for Konami's horror 
 series, Silent Hill.  Of course, he's also very active as a composer for 
 beatmania IIDX and other BEMANI games.
Misc. Notes: This is not actually the song as it appears in IIDX RED.  The 
 vocals by Sanae Shintani (see Miracle Moon) have been removed for this "Hina
 Mix", due to the fact that they were a little too spicy for public 
 consumption (she says, in English, "touch me", "lick me", and "stroke me").

 easy streams and some gallops.

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: DDR Ultramix

LGT: 3   3
STD: 5   5
HVY: 6   7

Play Notes: There's a short stop in the music about ten seconds from the 
 end.

Heavy Notes: The slow speed makes this one pretty easy.  Small to mid-length 
 streams, with some jumps in them.  A few gallops in the second half, and 
 there are three spots with clusters of four sixteenths.

Lyrics: 

(1, 2, 3, 4)

I want you now
My heart's on fire
As we turn-turn-turn
Into the long hot night

It's good for you love
I'm wanting your love
I know that you'll be better

I'm feelin' good
I'm feelin' fine
I want you now
I want you now

Don't ever leave
I know you want
Don't let me go-go-go
Don't let me go

Baby, yeah, you love me so much
Baby, yeah, you're holding my love

I want you just to hold me
I know that you love me always
I want you just to touch me

Heavy Notes:  Simple streams abound, for the most part.  Later in the song, 
 you'll have some double steps ending the streams.  Also, you'll have to step 
 the synth brass hits, which aren't too difficult at all once you know them.

Challenge Notes: Longer streams, with some gallops to cap them off.  Also 
 watch out for the multitude of freezes, and some small clusters of 
 sixteenths.

Oh yeah, that's right, you'll be alone
Why don't you get out, won't you feel the need
You got so much of what you like
You better looks at life, cause I've got this for you

Yeah, we want you to savor day, for you to get away
Now if you don't care about what I say, then you gotta think about the time
Because it's on your mind, it got your body goin'
In the motion, as I'm going through this flowing groove, it's funky

Keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on doin' it
All new happy on your own (keep on, keep on, keep on, oh)
Keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on doin' it (What about my love)
Hope you feel good, hope you feel better, ooh!

Keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on doin' it

Misc. Notes: "DMX Mix" does not at all refer to the rapper/actor of the same 
 name.  It's an abbreviation for Dance ManiaX.  The original version of this 
 song is in DDR USA and DDR Extreme USA.

Heavy Notes: Ugh.  A pain in the padded butt.  This chart can't seem to get 
 near a decent rhythm, or rather, it wants to follow the synth notes in their 
 odd-beat setup.  Read carefully so you can pick up all the really odd steps.  
 Watch for gallops and sixteenths.

Lyrics: 

Dans un monde parfait l'humanité 
Existe comme un arc en ciel 
Avec des couleurs multiples 
Noir, blanc, jaune et rouge 

Larmes, larmes 
Larmes, larmes 
Si on continue à vivre comme ça 
Faire comme ça 
On a besoin d'unifier tout le monde 
Pour ensemble vivre dans le monde 
L'amour et la liberté c'est tout ce qu'il 
Faut pour l'humanité 

Sans discrimination raciale 
Chaque couleur à l'unison 
Brillante et claire 
Donnant au monde 
Paix et liberté 

English Translation:

In a world perfect humanity 
Exists like a rainbow 
With multiple colours 
Black, white, yellow and red 

Tears, tears 
Tears, tears 
If we continue to live like this 
Do like this 
We need to unify everyone 
To live together in the world 
Love and liberty is all it 
Needs for humanity 

Without racial discrimination 
Each colour in unison 
Brilliant and clear 
Giving to people 
Peace and liberty

Lyrics: 

Enfin j'arrive à te détester et toi 
Tu dis que tu m'aime c'est trop tard maintenant 
Les mots doux ou tes larmes ne me disent rien 
Tu ne pourrais jamais imaginer mes souffrance 

Je t'aime, je n'ai que toi, quelle bêtise j'ai fait! 
C'était une illusion que jamais autre fille 
Nous avons promis de nous marier 
Ne me dis pas que tu ne reviendras jamais 

Orange, l'amour est orange 
Oui nous sommes mélangés dans un jeu d'ange 
Orange, l'amour est orange 
C'est dangereux, quand je finirai son jeu? 

Enfin j'arrive à te détester et toi 
Tu dis que tu m'aime c'est trop tard maintenant

English Translation:

At last I get to hate you and you 
You say that you love me it's too late now 
The sweet words or your tears don't tell me anything 
You could never imagine my pain 

I love you, I've only got you, what a silly thing I did! 
It was an illusion that never another girl 
We promised to wed 
Don't tell me that you will never return 

Orange, love is orange 
Yes we are mixed in an angel game 
Orange, love is orange, 
It's dangerous, when I'll finish his game?

Lyrics: 

Follow your dreams, follow your heart 
Follow your dreams, follow your heart 
Follow your dreams, follow your heart 
Follow your dreams, follow your heart 

When the world seems so lost in itself 
and you feel that life is not so easy on you 
Don't forget that you're not by yourself 
For together we can make this world a better place 

Give it a chance (There's time to save this planet now) 
Give us a hand 
Find the way to help Mother Earth (It is not too late to give her a chance) 
Help make her proud (We can work a way to building up a new future) 

The twinkling stars are watching from above (Keeping an eye on us) 

What we do today can make another difference (Open your heart and your mind) 
What we do today can make another difference (To the world now) 
(Make a difference) 
What we do today can make another difference (Open your heart and your mind) 
What we do today can make another difference (To the world, do it now) 

Together we can build a better world 
Together we can make it better now 
Together we can build a better world now 
Together we can make it better now 
Together we can build a better world 
Together we can make it better now 
Together we can build a better world. Now's the time 
Together we can make it better 

Follow your dreams, follow your heart 
Follow your dreams, follow your heart 
Follow your dreams, follow your heart 
Follow your dreams, yes you can 
Follow your dreams, follow your heart 
Follow your dreams, follow your heart 
Follow your dreams, follow your heart 
Follow your dreams

Lyrics: 

Believe...

Ohhhhh

Don't be sad
It can't be that bad
There's nothing to fear
Your broken heart will mend
A new love will come to you
Shining through

Look, look at the stars
And you've got to visualize
There's someone still in your heart
I know it's really true

I know they're waiting
Baby, waiting only, only for you
Just have faith, keep your head up
And watch your love for me

Believe in your dreams
'Cause, you can make them come true
Just let yourself go (let yourself go)
You've got to believe
That happy thoughts will come
It's plain to see

Ohhh ohh ohh

Please just remember
When you're feeling down and blue
There is someone waiting for you
Someone just like you

Believe in your dreams
The world is waiting for you
It's all up to you

You've got to believe
It will be okay, another day

Believe in your dreams
Life is not what it seems
Just try to believe (try to believe)
Just bring out the light
Love will take you there
Take you there

 the middle of a stream, so make sure you know where it is.  After that, it's 
 mid-length streams with crossovers, and some off-beat freezes.

Lyrics: 

Tell me you love me, I'm so crazy, so crazy in love with you

So crazy, so crazy, your love, there ain't nothing I can do

Try to escape from this love and surprise me
You, you hold the key to set me free, my love

I'm so totally into you
There is nothing I can do
I'm so totally into you
All the time, my baby

I try to break from this passion that binds me
But, what, what can I do, when it's just you I see?

I'm so head over heels over you
There ain't nothing I can do
I'm so totally into you
Over you, my baby

Totally into you
What am I supposed to do?
I'm so head over heels over you
Over you, my baby

Lyrics:

Gde rad govor morja
Dremljut gory v oblakach

Uletaj na kryl'jach vetra

English Translation:

Fly on the wings of the wind
to the homeland, our home song
where we sang freely loving
where me and you felt so freely

There beneath the burning sky
Languid breezes cooled us
There beside the mountains
Straight above the silver sea  

Fly on the wings of the wind
to the homeland, our home song
where we sang freely loving
where me and you felt so freely

LGT: 5   6   
STD: 8   8
HVY: 10  10
CHA: 9   9

Play Notes: The song begins at 300 BPM and remains there for some time.  
 About a third of the way through the song, it drops to 150, hangs there for 
 a few measures, then begins a slowdown all the way to 14.  Then after the 
 slow measure, it goes back up to 150 for several more measures, then makes a
 big jump up to 320, where it goes for the rest of the song until the last 
 few measures, where it quickly slows down to about 90 over the course of 
 those measures.

Heavy Notes: Many people consider this a difficult 9-footer, as there are 
 9-footers more difficult than this, but it's still a great challenge, if for 
 nothing else than the fluctuating speed.  The 300 part is pretty simple, 
 some gallops, but mostly quarter notes.  Once it drops to 150, it's pretty 
 much a constant stream, with a freeze and one step on the really slow part.  
 The next 150 part has more gallops and some sixteenths, the 320 part has 
 mostly quarters and a few more eighths than the first part, with doubles 
 marking the orchestra hits near the end, and the slowdown at the end is one 
 stream, which you have to adjust with as it slows down.

Challenge Notes: Basically a stripped down version of the Heavy steps.  
 Fewer steps on the 300 part.  The first 150 part has breaks in the stream.  
 There's no step at 21.  The second 150 part has no gallops or sixteenths, and 
 the 320 part has again fewer steps.  The slowdown is quarter notes.

Play Notes: The song begins at 90, until the big orchestra hits, then kicks

Heavy Notes:  Once you get truly underway, the biggest problem comes from 
 lengthy, but easy, streams at the fast tempo.  No real surprises.

Challenge Notes: The streams are now a bit more complicated and a bit longer, 
 and there are also some chaotic off-beat steps to take care of.

Hey yeah, hey yeah, hey yeah, mmmm...

That's when I knew love would begin
If he would just give, give me some time
 
I walked up and asked
If he liked to slow dance
He nodded his head and he said "Yes"
I knew he would fall for me
 
Everybody said it’d never last
Said that I'm dreaming, and I'm going to fast
Oh, don't believe us when you hear what you hear, I say yeah
Saturday night
 
I'm getting ready for the time of my life, girl
I want this man, so I put up the fight
If you believe in love, wave your hands and say yeah
Saturday night
 
Sunday night, it began for you
Tuesday night, we'll make dreams come true
You'll hold on, 'cause one night just won't do
Just to find you'll be lovin' me, too

 either.

 anthem step following, which includes streams of decent length and 
 crossovers.

Heavy Notes: Lots of psuedo-triplets in this set to follow the percussive 
 tones.  Other than that, there are small streams with some crossovers, and 
 a small sixteenth cluster near the end.

Lyrics: 

You gotta move it

BPM: 200

Difficulty: 
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 2
LGT: 4   4
STD: 6   6
HVY: 9   9

Heavy Notes: One pain of a nine-footer.  The streams can get pretty long (up 
 to sixteen notes long), and they'll include turning regularly, including 
 full spins.  Nothing truly special, just a lot of it, and at a fast tempo, 
 too.

6B. BRILLIANT 2U =
==================

UNLOCK: Mission B-05

Artist: NAOKI
Genre: Euro Groove*
BPM: 150

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 1
LGT: 4   4
STD: 5   5
HVY: 6   7
CHA: 7   8

Heavy Notes: For the most part, you'll find small streams and quarters.  
 There are a few tough spots, such as a couple of streams of three double 
 steps, and during the bridge, you'll step two eighths, three sixteenths, then 
 another eighth, then a quarter, and do that for a while.  You may think it 
 follows the music, but it doesn't.

Challenge Notes: The streams have become longer, but not too much.  The 
 bridge of the song now actually follows the rhythm of the song, which can 
 possibly make these steps easier than the original Heavy steps.

---

Lyrics:

C'mon, let's go, here we go,
Jump jump jump everybody.
Jump up and have a hell of a time, get down.

Get involved, c'mon 'cmon.
Jump jump jump, let go.
Everybody knows how to get down.

Jump jump jump, get involved.
Jump jump jump, get involved.
Jump jump jump, get involved.

C'mon, let's go, here we go,

 "Orchestra Groove" version of this song in DDR USA and DDRMAX USA.

6C. BURNIN' THE FLOOR =

BEG: 1
LGT: 4   4
STD: 6   6

Heavy Notes: The streams don't get very long, and there's no turning 
 involved.  Probably the only tricky part is the bridge, where the steps 
 follow the synthesizer hits.

Lyrics:

(Look out on the dancefloor)
(It's waiting for you)
It's time to burn

Burn, burn, burn's the fix
And tell me, do you really wanna roll with this
The heat is on, it's time to move
So where you know just what to do
The temperatures rising, no way out
Going too far, can't stop now
So let me know if you feel it, too
When the fire gets inside of you

Where have, you been all of my life
I've been, looking for you
I wanna dance through, dark into the daylight with you
I wanna burn!

Burn, burn, burn the world, burn
The rhythm's hard to ignore
Set up a big fire
I just don't care anymore!

Let's make it special, on a dance floor
I can read the signs, but I can't use the lore
Let's get it up, 'cause now's the time
I really wanna make you mine tonight 
Let's put in the fight
You and me, on a fantasy
And if you really wanna learn, I'm gonna show you how to burn

Burn, burn, burn, you burn me
You body's talking to mine (you burn me)
Sizzling sensation, our bodies like it in time (oh yeah!)
You know we gonna burn, burn, burn the fire, they don't make it anymore (talk
 to me)
Fire in big waves, yeah. I've got you burning the floor
Burnin' the floor!

BEG: 1
LGT: 4   4
STD: 5   6
HVY: 8   7

Heavy Notes: Well, the good news is that there's very little turning.  The 
 bad news is that about every other hard element is in this song.  Double 
 steps at the beginning of streams, gallops in the beginning, middle, and end, 
 and a chaotic ending, following the music.  Also, there are several double 
 and triple taps on single arrows throughout.

This jumping ocean is now fighting with you
Keep on Lovin..Can't stop my heart, I won't stop 
This love is jumping...Dive to the night

6E. DYNAMITE RAVE =

UNLOCK: Mission C-01

Artist: NAOKI
Genre: Speed Rave*
BPM: 150

Difficulty: 
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 1
LGT: 5   5
STD: 7   6
HVY: 9   8
CHA: 9   8

Heavy Notes: This song will definitely wear you down if you're not used to 
 catas.  It has everything a good cata should, though: long streams, 
 sixteenths thrown in, double steps on some of the shorter streams, and 
 chaos.  At the beginning, you'll have to deal with some syncopation, as the 
 first four notes are on the eighth-note beat, the next three are off, and the 
 last two aren't, and that keeps up for several measures.  Once the verse 
 starts, you'll have eighths with groups of three sixteenths regularly thrown 
 in.  You'll get a bit of a respite from sixteenths once you get to the 
 chorus, but those are replaced with doubles-in-streams, and long streams, 
 then back to the second verse for more sixteenths, and then back to the 
 chorus for more long streams and doubles.  Good luck to you.

Challenge Notes: Possibly a bit simpler than the original Heavy steps, but 
 not by much.  There are more crossovers to focus on, and a few freezes to 
 deal with, but not too much has changed conceptually from these new steps.

Lyrics:

1, 2, 3, 4
Dynamite Rave!

Come on everybody! 
(go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go)
And get on the floor, yeah

Techno, rave
It's time to make a stand
and pave the way
Some might say
Let it go
Stay with the flow
Stay on beat
Move your feet
On concrete
Or on the dance floor
You want more
Then I'll give you more
If it's too hardcore
Let me know
I'll stop the show
Then bring it back
To be exact
At 12 o'clock
Rock the spot
It's too damn hot
They told me so
Dynamite rave
It's on the down low
Use your inner glow
To make a move
Show and prove
The man with the lisp
Sounds so crisp
When you can see me 
On TV
On the radio
Here me blow

I don't wanna give up
We're gonna have a party
Have a really great time
Yeah Yeah!
Just feel the heat
Listen to the music
and feel that beat

C'mon, get up
C'mon, c'mon
Let me hear ya
Let me hear ya

C'mon, get up
C'mon, c'mon
Let me hear ya
Let me hear ya

Jump jump
Do your thing
This be the bomb
Try to sing
Narrator king
Spread your wings
Make your head ring 
To this song
All night long
Jack your body
To this party
Feel the pain
When you strain
Don't refrain
Please don't stop 
Until you drop

I don't wanna give up
We're gonna have a party
Have a really great time
Yeah Yeah!
Just feel the heat
Listen to the music
and feel that beat, yeah!

BPM: 140

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 1
LGT: 4   3
STD: 5   5
HVY: 7   7

Heavy Notes: This isn't too hard at all.  Really, it could be seen as just an 
 excuse to throw freeze arrows into LTTS.  Anyway, there's very little 
 turning, streams are quite simple, and there's no chaos whatsoever.  Should 
 be a relatively easy seven-footer to AA.

Lyrics:

S.O.T.A.

Feeling sad and lonely
Cause I can't find you
Call your telephone
And there's never no answer
Said you love me
Kissed me
We were in heaven
Said I'm sorry
Love you, want you forever

Every night I look at the sky
Call your name
And wonder where you are
Every night I look at the sky
Baby, miss you
Won't you come back

S.O.T.A.

Heavy Notes: Like the TRIP MACHINES, the PARANOiAs tend to follow the music 
 closely.  Also, you'll find much of the same stepwise.  Short streams, turns, 
 wacky rhythms, but nothing truly chaotic, only faster than the TRIP MACHINES.  
 The original also has some repeated taps on the same arrow during a stream 
 that are designed to wear your feet out at that speed.  These show up near the 
 end, so watch out.

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: DDRMAX2: DDR 7th Mix (Arcade)
Artist Notes: RE-VENGE is the same as RevenG, a Naoki psuedonym.
Misc. Notes: This piece was originally in DDRMAX2 as a secret song only 
 playable through an Oni Course.  It was first selectable as a song in DDR 
 Extreme for the arcade.  So, what's a "Nonstop Megamix"?  Well, the deal is 
 that Konami and Toshiba-EMI release soundtracks for the DDR games in Japan.  
 These soundtracks consist of two discs.  One has all the new songs to that 
 mix, and the other disc has them all in a giant continuous track called a 
 "Nonstop Megamix", which basically connects them all through intros and 
 outros and throws DDR sound effects and voice in.  Sometimes (like in the 
 case with SEXY PLANET), the music is changed a bit to fit the NSMM better, or 
 how the composers are feeling that day.

 there are tend to be tame, except early on when there are some with jumps 
 in them.  There are a lot of jumps, though.  All over the place.  You'll 
 also pick up a pattern with the moaning track.

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: DDRMAX2: DDR 7th Mix (Arcade)
Artist Notes: See SEXY PLANET
Misc. Notes: This piece was originally in DDRMAX2 as a secret song only 
 playable through an Oni Course.  It was first selectable as a song in DDR 
 Extreme for the arcade.

******************************************************************************
8. RED SONGS (BOSS SONGS)
******************************************************************************

No pussy-footing this year, and no "psuedo" boss songs like MAXIMIZER.  These 
two songs are the total challenge, and, naturally, they're unlocked rather 
late in the process.

=======================
8A. PARANOIA survivor =
=======================

UNLOCK: Mission X-29

Artist: 270
Genre: Jungle Mixture
BPM: 135-270

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 3
LGT: 5   6
STD: 8   8
HVY: 10  10

Play Notes: There are three spots where the song slows down to half speed, 
 and it's tough for me to say where they show up, but let me say that they're 
 all in the first half, and with the frequency you'll play this song trying 
 to master it, you'll learn quick.

Heavy Notes: Short streams for the most part.  The slowdowns feature steps 
 with the music.  The streams start both on and off the beat.  Once you hit 
 the two long freezes, your streams will get longer and longer.  And, of 
 course, a BPM of 270 for your troubles.  I'd say it's about as hard as MAX 
 300, maybe a little easier, or not.

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: DDR Extreme (Arcade)
Artist Notes: 270 is Naoki (see the FAQ), used to denote the BPM, as he does 
 for all his PARANOiA mixes.
Misc. Notes: See the original PARANOiA for info on the other mixes.

===========================
8B. PARANOIA survivor MAX =
===========================

UNLOCK: Mission E-13

Artist: 290
Genre: Jungle Mixture*
BPM: 73-290

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
BEG: 3
LGT: 5   6
STD: 8   8
HVY: 10  10
CHA: 10! 10!

Play Notes: Very much like PARANOIA survivor.  There are the three slowdowns 
 in the first half to half-speed.  At the two freezes, the song slows down 
 to 73, then there's one more half-speed slowdown near the end.  Oh, and 
 although this seems to be just a faster version of PARANOIA survivor, there 
 are several extra seconds of music thrown in at the end.

Heavy Notes: Very much like PARANOIA survivor Heavy, for the most part, 
 except it's Mirrored.  Of course, the extra section at the end is its own, 
 but not too difficult on its own.

Challenge Notes: This is it, folks.  The hardest official DDR stepchart in 
 existence.  The streams are all longer, and there's far FAR less time to 
 relax in between them.  And that's about it.  There are no tricks or secrets 
 besides the slowdown sections, which you should be familiar with by now.  
 All it takes here is a sharp eye and a very VERY high stamina.  613 steps of 
 pain.  It can be done.

******************************************************************************
9. ADVANCED MODE
******************************************************************************

These are the more difficult modes of play.  At the outset, only "Course" 
is available to you, and you'll need to unlock the other options through 
Dance Master Mode.

============
9A. Course =
============

This is a combination of the old Nonstop and Oni modes of play.  You begin by 
selecting your style and character.  After that, you select the "Meter":

Normal: Standard Dance Meter.  This is the "Nonstop" play, where you just go 
 through the songs all at once.

Challenge: Battery Dance Meter.  Step anything but a MARVELLOUS, PERFECT,  
 GREAT, or OK and you lose one of your four lives.  Lose all four and it's 
 game over.  After passing a song, you gain back all lives you lost.  This is 
 the "Oni" style of play.

After that, you'll select your course.  Each course has two difficulties: 
Normal and Difficult, and you can select options for the course as well, if 
the course allows it.  Your score is tallied as normal, regardless of which 
meter you selected, but you get a secondary score which relates to how well 
you were stepping: 

MARVELLOUS: 3 points
PERFECT: 2 points
GREAT: 1 point
OK (Freeze Arrow): 3 points
Everything Else: 0 points

At the end of your play, your score is ranked next to the maximum possible 
score.

Also available is a "Create Your Own Course".  You may create ten of your 
own courses using the "ORDER" slots.  They all start at RANDOM and four songs 
long on Standard, but you can change any of these attributes, including 
options in each of the songs.

Courses List

First is a rather uninspired set of five courses all using default songs, and 
all available to you by default.  After that, you need to earn the courses by 
unlocking them through the Shop.

=============
9B. Endless =
=============

To unlock this mode, you must purchase all 50 locked songs from the Shop.

The object of this mode is to play for as long as possible on a standard Dance 
Meter.

You'll begin by selecting your style.  Only Single and Double plays are 
available for this mode.  After that, you'll make your Endless Settings: 

Step: Select your difficulty - Beginner, Light, Standard, Heavy, or Random.
Break Stage: Set a break stage after a certain number of songs.
Select Options: Pick your step options as you would in normal play.
Music Program: Set your program of songs that you wish to play, if you wish 
 to only include or disclude particular songs.

==============
9C. Survival =
==============

To unlock this mode, you must purchase all 50 locked songs from the Shop.

This mode is similar to Endless Mode, only instead of a Dance Meter, you have 
a Challenge Meter with four lives.  You'll still be able to select style 
(Single or Double) and your difficulty (Beginner, Light, Standard, Heavy, 
or All).

So, just ignore that gigantic clock in the middle of the screen.

=====================
9D. Combo Challenge =
=====================

To unlock this mode, you must purchase all 50 locked songs from the Shop.

This mode is similar to Endless Mode, only instead of a Dance Meter, you have 
to keep a combo running.  As soon as you break combo, the game's over.  You'll 
still be able to select style (Single or Double) and your difficulty 
(Beginner, Light, Standard, Heavy, or All).

And, for your reference, you have a gigantic combo meter in the center of the 
screen.

******************************************************************************
10. DANCE MASTER MODE
******************************************************************************

This is now considered the "true" single-player experience for the home DDR.  
Playing through these missions is essential to cement your status as a 
masterful DDR player.

Okay.  Bad news first.  This is the faster way to access new songs/courses/
costumes/etc. for purchase in the Shop.  You can also unlock stuff through 
Free Play for Advanced, but it's a lot slower.

The good news is that any songs and courses you play all the way through will 
be saved as records, so you won't have to worry about doing it later.

As you may expect, what you need to do is play through every one of these 
missions and meet their conditions for passing to unlock more.

There are four types of missions:

1. Yellow Border - Normal Mission.  Has standard set of requirements, for the 
 most part.
2. Red Border - Special Mission.  Most of these are necessary to "complete" 
 an area and unlock another.  Completing these will earn you the song or 
 course you played in the shop.  Also, you'll get a "prize" for completing 
 any of these.
3. Green Border - Course Mission.  You'll need to play through a series of 
 songs to pass the mission.
4. Blue Border - Handicap Mission.  You're required NOT to step on certain 
 arrows for the course of this mission.

Looking at a mission will give you the mission's name (a letter, then a 
number), and the song/course you'll be playing, and its step difficulty.  
There's a meter giving you the mission's general difficulty from 1 to 10.  
Beneath the song's graphic is a green meter showing how much of the song you'll 
be playing (which is most often the entire song).  Also noted on each mission 
panel is the Dance Meter you'll be using (Normal or Challenge, with the number 
of lives), then the missions attempts and successes.  On the bottom of the 
panel are two icons.  The one on the left (the arrow) is lit up when certain 
options are activated.  The one on the right (the star) is lit up when you 
have a challenge besides just passing the song.

Lastly, the panel (as well as the small square for each mission) has a symbol 
 based on your status on it:
An X: You've attempted but haven't passed the mission.
Silver Star: You've passed the mission.
Red Star: You've fully passed the mission.  For most missions, this requires 
 you to pass with a full combo.  For missions that prevent you from getting a 
 full combo, just passing it will give you a red star.

Now, this is how I've arranged them below:

Mission #: Mission Difficulty UNLOCK: (mission required to unlock this one)
Song/Course: (What you're playing in this mission)
Diff.: (The difficulty of song you're playing)
Section: (The section of the song you're playing.  I haven't listed it if 
 you're playing the whole song.)
Options: (Any of the options turned on for this mission.)
Challenge: (What you're required to do to complete the mission.  I haven't 
 listed it if all you have to do is pass the song.)
Secret Challenge: (What you need to do to unlock hidden missions.)
Extra Arrow: 30 of these missions have an invisible Extra Arrow, which, if 
 you hit it, will give you 1000 extra Shop Points.  I point out where in 
 the mission it is.
Reward: (If you get the song/purchase after passing the mission.)

As one final note, I'd like to point out that for any mission that gives you a 
score threshold, you should know that that means the score AFTER the bonus, 
so remember that it applies and brings a potential seven million up to ten 
million.

=============
10A. AREA A =
=============

To begin with, the game will force you what Missions you'll be able to select.  
You'll begin only being able to select 1 or 2, then 3 or 4, and so on, up 
until the seventh and eighth missions.  Once you pass one of those, you have 
access to the whole grid and may play any missions in the area you wish.

I shouldn't have to tell you that these first missions are total cakewalks.

Challenge: Okay.  Here's how this weird thing goes.  Just hammer on one or two  
 arrows as much as you can, but AVOID all the actual arrow steps.  If you get 
 anything but Boos, you fail, but stepping on nothing will actually get you 
 a point.  Personally, I like to focus on the left and right arrows, since 
 they seem to be avoided for this song.  Also, jumps don't count unless you 
 step on both, so you're allowed to hit one of the two arrows in a jump and 
 not fail.  You need 150 points to pass this mission.

Options: Arrow Type 3 (Flat), Simultaneous Step Off 1

EXTRA ARROW: Figures that it's a down arrow.  It's on Measure 13, so you know 
 it's pretty early.  The measure before has left, right/right, down/down, and 
 the measure of has up, left/left, then right on the fourth beat.  The down 
 arrow you need to step on is an eighth before that last right.
Notes: It's not easy turning off a step in your mind.  You may wanna tape a 
 piece of paper or a ruler over the down arrow to block those steps.  Also, 
 be careful, because with Flat on, the off-beat steps aren't as distinct.

 previous has an up-left jump on the first beat, then an up-right jump on 
 the third beat.  The measure of has a down-left jump on the first beat (then 
 the up arrow), then a down-right jump on the third beat.

SECRET CHALLENGE: Get at least 65 each of PERFECTs, GREATs, and GOODs.
Notes: The secret challenge is REALLY tough for this one, and you're probably 
 better off doing D-12's secret.  If you wanna try this one, I suggest going 
 for GOODS, then once you think you have about forty or so, get 65 PERFECTs and 
 count them, then try the rest for GOODs.  You'll most probably fill up your 
 GREAT quota in the process.

Challenge: Just like C-25 you must not hit any arrows, but keep hammering 
 when there aren't any.  You need 180 points to pass.  This one is a lot 
 tougher, though.
SECRET CHALLENGE: Now, I'm not sure about this one.  Perhaps you need over 
 200 points.  I had over 220 and I unlocked D-30.  There are, of course, 
 easier ways to unlock D-30.

 would think to shoot for 200 then jump out on the 201st, but that step's in 
 the middle of one really long stream, making it really tough to pin down.  
 What I suggest is to get a 45 combo, then not get the 46th (which is the last 
 of a three note stream), and then get all the rest of the steps, making 200 
 at the very end.  Either way is tough, of course.

******************************************************************************
11. OTHER MODES
******************************************************************************

Here are the rest of the game modes.

===================
11A. Workout Mode =
===================

This mode allows you to observe the calories melting away as you dance.

---

Workout Setting

Weight: Set this and the amount of calories burned will be slightly changed 
 to reflect your weight.

Menu: Set to "Play Time" to play a specific amount of time.  Set to "Calories 
 Burned" and you'll play until you reach that number of calories.  Set to 
 "Program" and you can set your own workout course (like a Nonstop).  "No 
 Setting" will let you have no restrictions.

Goal: Set to minutes if "Play Time" is on Menu, and to a calorie amount if 
 "Calories Burned is on Menu.

Workout Step: With this on, the steps will be set to "Little".

Simultaneous Step: Turning this off will remove jumps.

Program: Select Free to have the normal song list, or Course to access some 
 preset courses the game gives you, or courses you can order yourself.

---

Workout Results

After every song (or at the end of your program), you'll see a Workout Results 
screen where you can see your calorie-related results.  Press Circle to see 
them charted in relation to other day's workouts.

==================
11B. Lesson Mode =
==================

Select this to learn basic lessons about DDR.  An onscreen character will 
guide you, and you have to match what it does.  "For Beginners" is largely 
basic steps.  "For Regular Players" will throw in some different kinds of 
movements.  "Fancy Footwork" will throw eighth notes into the mix as well as 
some fancy moves.

====================
11C. Training Mode =
====================

Select this to pick songs and tackle them on your own terms.  Start by 
selecting a song, then you'll go to the menu screen, where you can select the 
mode (Single, Versus, Double), its difficulty, any song options you want (as 
detailed in the How To Dance section far above), and you may put in any Edit 
Data you wish.

In addition (unlike other modes of gameplay), you can set Assist, which 
allows you to play with any combination of the music, a metronome (which 
marks standard quarter note beats), and a handclap (which claps whenever 
there's an arrow).

Also, you can set the "Music Speed".  Unlike the song option called Speed, 
this actually changes how fast the song goes.  It's good for taking fast 
songs at speeds you can manage.  Adjusting this to a lower amount will 
automatically turn off the music, so you'll need to set the metronome or 
handclap on if you want something in the background.

Finally, you can set what measure the song begins and ends.  The "Start" 
function below it will allow you to quickly change between the measures you 
select and the whole song.

================
11D. Edit Mode =
================

Well, I'm not gonna go through all the possibilities that Edit Mode offers 
here.  Honestly, if you're serious about Editing, you'll probably know to 
read the instructions on this one.  Seriously, there's too much info about it 
for me to justify making a section for it.

******************************************************************************
12. ONLINE PLAY
******************************************************************************

Well, I don't have a broadband adapter for my PS2, and no real desire to get 
one.  However, I will say that this is a very bare-bones setup for online 
play.  You can't pick who you play, and you can't pick your song, either.  
However, this is an essential first step for online Playstation DDR play.

******************************************************************************
13. SHOP
******************************************************************************

Okay.  EVERYTHING unlockable in this game has to come through here.  It's not 
enough just to trigger the unlock.  You'll need the requisite number of 
Shop Points to actually be able to use it.

=========================
13A. Shop Point Formula =
=========================

Okay, every song you play starts you with a base amount of Shop Points.  How 
you step changes the amount of points you have, and when you finish the song, 
the Shop Points you've earned are put into your main "account".  While you 
can be reduced to 0 points in a song, you can never reduce the amount in 
your account just through play.

How many points you start with and can earn are based on the step difficulty 
you choose, and the foot rating difficulty.

Course

All courses give a set amount of points for each song you play, which doesn't 
change no matter how well or poorly you do.  You earn those points for each 
song you pass, even if you don't complete the entire course.

Normal Dance Meter: 800 per song
Challenge Meter: 1000 per song

============
13B. Music =
============

I've ordered these all as you find them in Dance Master Mode, as that is the 
quickest way to unlock them.  If you keep playing in Free Play or Advanced 
Mode, you may find more popping up, but these are the quickest.

I've ordered them by Area, with the X missions thrown into their respective 
nearby areas.

Just like music, earn new Courses by playing them in Dance Master Mode.  Some

These first five I'm not sure about as far as unlocking.  Just keep playing

13D. Outfit =
=============

Earning new outfits for characters is simple, really.  Just play any five 
missions as a character and their second outfit will be available for 
purhcase:

J.C.: 200000
SA-JA: 200000
All other characters: 100000

Yeah.  I suggest taking all those last as stuff to get after unlocking 
everything else.

==================
13E. Information =
==================

There are two types of things to purchase in this section:

Extra Arrows: These arrows are invisible, and are inserted into Missions.  
 Hitting any Extra Arrow immediately gives you 1000 Shop Points.  As far as 
 I know, there is no reward for hitting all 30.  Once you pass a Mission 
 that has an Extra Arrow, the hint for it will be up for grabs for 1000 
 points.  This hint gives you a two measure spread, pointing out the arrow in 
 the My Room section.

If you wish to know where in the song each of these are, go to the Dance 
 Master section for the Mission indicated.

All of them cost 1000 points.

Arrow 01: A-05
Arrow 02: X-02
Arrow 03: B-12
Arrow 04: B-06
Arrow 05: B-11
Arrow 06: B-15
Arrow 07: X-04
Arrow 08: B-30
Arrow 09: B-33
Arrow 10: B-42
Arrow 11: B-37
Arrow 12: C-30
Arrow 13: C-09
Arrow 14: C-10
Arrow 15: C-15
Arrow 16: C-17
Arrow 17: C-22
Arrow 18: C-14
Arrow 19: C-31
Arrow 20: X-22
Arrow 21: D-07
Arrow 22: D-08
Arrow 23: D-14
Arrow 24: D-23
Arrow 25: D-24
Arrow 26: D-32
Arrow 27: D-40
Arrow 28: D-45
Arrow 29: E-02
Arrow 30: X-37

Hints: These are basic hints which give you clues on how to do Secret 
 Challenges in Dance Master Mode to unlock Hidden Missions.  I'm not sure 
 how they're unlocked to be available for purchase, but meeting their 
 requirements before buying them will give them to you for free.

Hints cost between 1000 and 3000.  I don't know the whole price list, because 
of the free ones I got, but it's not really important for something that 
cheap.

Here's the full list:

Hint 01: B-06 - Get a grade of A or higher.
Hint 02: B-30 - Do not get more than 6.5 million points.
Hint 03: A-05 - Get a grade of AA or higher.
Hint 04: B-34 - Get 30 million points or more.
Hint 05: X-08 - Get 8.5 million points or more.
Hint 06: B-45 - Get less than 4 GOODs.
Hint 07: X-03 - Get less than 5 GREATs.
Hint 08: C-04 - Get a grade of exactly C.
Hint 09: C-12 - Get 8.5 million points or more.
Hint 10: C-17 - Get OK for all Freeze Arrows.
Hint 11: A-06 - Get a grade of AAA.
Hint 12: C-05 - Get OK for all Freeze Arrows.
Hint 13: C-18 - Get less than 100 PERFECTs.
Hint 14: C-16 - Get a max combo of exactly 30.
Hint 15: C-22 - Get OK for all Freeze Arrows.  Get 180 PERFECTs or more.
Hint 16: C-10 - Get a grade of AA or higher.
Hint 17: X-21 - Get 36 million points or more.
Hint 18: D-04 - Get a grade of AA or higher.
Hint 19: D-10 - Get NG for all Freeze Arrows.
Hint 20: D-26 - Get 65 or more each of PERFECTs, GREATs, and GOODs.
Hint 21: D-14 - Get less than 5 GOODs.
Hint 22: X-24 - Get a max combo of exactly 200.
Hint 23: D-12 - Do not get more than 6.8 million points.
Hint 24: D-18 - Get 100 GREATs or more.
Hint 25: X-30 - Get a max combo of 1000 or more.
Hint 26: X-31 - Get 50 Boos or more.
Hint 27: D-43 - Get 35 million points or more.
Hint 28: X-26 - Get 200 MARVELLOUS ratings or more.
Hint 29: X-28 - Get a grade of AA or higher.
Hint 30: E-06 - Do not get more than 8.6 million points.

By the way, these are NOT all the Secret Challenges in the game.  If any 
other Missions have Secret Challenges, I list them in that mission.

=============
13F. Custom =
=============

So far as I can tell, these are just a set of three new arrow types to use 
in the game, if you wish.  They seem to pop up at random, except for Arrow 4, 
which I got after Mission B-07.

They each cost 2000 to switch to them, then another 100 to switch back to 
Arrow 1, the regular arrows.

Arrow 2: Gradius ships
Arrow 3: Chevrons
Arrow 4: Butterflies

============
13G. Other =

Here's where you purchase all the rest of the junk.

Selections: There are hidden Missions that can only be purchased from the 
 store.  The first Mission number is the Mission you unlock by purchasing 
 that selection, and the one under "Mission Unlock" is the mission you need 
 to pass for it to become available (I think).  Here are the ones I have so 
 far.

 Mission Unlock: B-21

Selection 2 (X-06)

unless you have express consent by me.  I’ve put a lot of time into this.  
Give me some credit.

I'm not going to allow people with small personal sites to post this FAQ.  
They may post the link on GameFAQs with all the DDREX2 guides, but, trying to

14B. E-mail Guidelines =
========================

If you wish to e-mail me, be sure to follow these guidelines:

- Make ABSOLUTELY sure I haven't already answered your question in the guide.
- Make sure it has something to do with DDR Extreme 2.  I don't want spam, 
chain letters, offers for friendship.  Don't bother me with info on other DDR 
games, really.  I keep my ear pretty close to the ground about such things, 
and I'll probably know about it before you.  Compliment me on the FAQ all you 
want, though.
- Make sure you say "DDR Extreme 2" at one point in your e-mail.  I have more 
than one DDR FAQ, and I can't always figure the question out without 
specifying what game you're asking about.
- Asking how to beat a song will result in a deletion.  There really are no 
tips to offer for DDR'ing besides what I have in my section.  It has to come 
from your own skill and desire to pass.
- Spell correctly and use proper grammar, please.  If I can't understand 
your e-mail, it'll go to the junk pile.
