Hmmm, according to this, there's supposedly a play test for Pump It Up Pro 2:

http://www.piu-pro.com/

I wonder if this is for real, since I've seen that BGA on Jason Dread's machine.

I'm not expecting it to receive the most positive of reactions on this forum, but I'd be interested to see how this turns out. I remember watching a video of Jason backdooring custom songs into Pro 1... maybe this will have custom songs too?

Oh, it's confirmed? So I can spill the beans.

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.

I frowned even despite the latter sentence.

EDIT: those screenshots better not be it because the game looks EXACTLY the same.

I say that as if it was part and parcel.

Edit: To clarify, I don't mind whether or not you like the game. I just know that this forum is the least receptive to Pro among all of the ones that I've been to.

Unless this game wants to tank, it'd better NOT have custom songs.  Giving the user the means to never NEED a new mix again is not a good business model, even if the user/consumer benefits the greatest out of it.  Prexceeds were bad enough as is, don't give those people more power.


And it's hard to be really receptive to a game that used to steal away sales from regular PIU back when it first came out.

I know nothing about the game other than it's ITG 3 in Pump form. Looking at the screens, my only opinion is that the arrows are so small on the screen, so far away from the edges of the screen, and so far away from eachother. If it was like that in the first pro, then that sucks. Superb? That word sounds like it's below perfect in terms of hierarchy. I'm also guessing superb equals perfect. And I want to know this. Is there a way to fix the colors of the arrows to NORMAL? I would not beable to play with them changing colors. Back in DDR, I would always put a mod on to keep the arrows all the same color instead of having them color coded according to when the step is, or always changing colors. This is because I played Pump for 2 years before hearing of or seeing a DDR machine, and I prefered the Pump style of how the arrows look. If that was not the case for Pro, then it should be for Pro 2. I guess I would not dislike Pro as much if I could do that.

I also have a strange feeling that every real Pump song will be removed, and the game will consist entirely of ITG/PRO songs. I say this, because Turkey said a while back that the 5 ITG songs in NX2/NXA are likely to be removed because they are no longer free. Basically, same hardware, totally different software.

Pro 1 had the same look with the arrows and colors, nothing new. Those screenshots make Pro 2 look like the EXACT same game.

According to Ward and company, P/G/G/B/M are all the same as in regular Pump, with the fruity "superb" as a stricter level above "perfect". And yes, you can set it to have the arrows like in regular Pump, but it still doesn't look authentic at all.

I don't think Pump songs will be excluded. And I think you may have taken what I said out of context about them being "free". However, I ABSOLUTELY would prefer they excluded Pump songs so as to make it at least slightly a different product to arcade vendors. I'm not in the mood to hear about clueless distributors and arcades thinking that Pro is an "upgrade" and the "new version" over the regular Pump series again.

Worse than that, it actually WAS used to steal sales from Pump.

I totally don't mind it as a game (5-panel on the Stepmania engine isn't THAT comfortable to me, but that's debatable depending on how you like to play) - I just really don't want it to pass itself off as real Pump when it's clearly not the same game.
