DM Ashura tried to convince me to hop on the Pro bandwagon a long while back when for some reason he admitted to me that this game was in development. A bunch of his songs are in it. At that point, Kyle Ward's were not.

That explains Kyle Ward stating he may not be in the next PIU game.

Er... I'm a bit skeptical if it is DM Ashura. I mean we have all heard his songs already for the most part and while some are ok, the BIG problem is that everyone and their mother has simmed his stuff.

Now the only thing I really want to see is more Marathons than 1's. I mean I'd love to script a few myself but if they already have a set team to make them then I really do want to see more scripted courses. It is one of the only reasons I enjoyed ITG.

However, looking at the pictures, that "ANGERFACE IS NOT AMUSED" is the only random BGA in Pro and plays whenever it is a song that doesn't have a BGA. Since Pro 1 had songs with BGAs this was basically a joke for those that would end up pirating this and playing it with custom songs on their PCs (which was inevitable and DID happen regardless). I think the add-on install pretty much shows they are actually testing these out.

Hopefully they add a lot more to do than the first. I mean I would have enjoyed the first if it weren't so... empty. Like I barely scratched the surface of it and I was already done with it. The Marathons issue would make it better for me but I guess we shall see?

I don't understand why PIU Pro gets negative feedback. I've played PIU Pro, and yeah, it was a bit different. Still, It's PIU with some ITG songs.

That right there is the first issue with what's wrong with it.

That's actually not how I feel (and I actually wouldn't mind that too much, if the song selection were really judicious).

I feel it's more like ITG and Stepmania on a 5-panel cabinet with Pump songs. It just doesn't feel right. Besides, most of the Pro-exclusive charts are kind of sloppy and don't flow well.

Bottom line is, I don't dislike it because of the concept itself; I dislike because it doesn't work well and it doesn't feel good.

Show me a person who describes anything as "overrated", and I'll show you a person who's run out of good ideas.

Oh?
DM Ashura?

I'd like to see how they make the stepcharts for his songs  :D

DM Ashura's name popping up is the only thing that interests me now.

If anything, this will probably come out in one of the following options from most to least expensive:
FX machine
Full Upgrade kit with panel board
Software upgrade (a la encore pack)

I wish they could do something like the software upgrade method with standard pump.  It'd save some money.

Pro was an attempt to bring some of the ITG players away from their R21 retard rodeo.  It's a decent enough game.  I'm glad to hear that The Space Pumpkin isn't involved beyond a few licensed songs for the "sequel".

P.S.  How many Pro locations ended up in the United States?  Wasn't it something like 30, with most of those going to high ITG dominant areas?

30 locations that were branded as Pump locations, using Pump cabinets, and weren't Pump games at all.

Yeehaw's point was that the cabinets were in ITG-heavy areas, where by association there would be a high number of ITG-style players. And if I remember correctly, one of the primary complaints against Pro was that it was 4-panel style charts on 5-panel pads.

Like attracts like.

Here in Florida, the Pump Pro population compared to the number of Pumpamiro machines is practically nil, mainly due to the lack of ITG machines. In fact, the one Pump Pro machine I saw in the state was back-to-back with an ITG2 cabinet.

Walt got my point pretty much dead on. Itg heavy places basically weren't going to touch anything tangentially related to pump otherwise.  Now pump is at least in their mind space.
