So, there's no point to this thread. Let's just make it related to Pump. Let's see how many general message board rules we can break with this thread.
So... Hyun Jin Young Go Jin Young Go is the best Pump song in the history of Pump... if you exclude Witch Doctor, Do It Yourself, Unforgettable Memory, Holiday, and We Don't Stop.
Anyone who disagrees is lying.
[EDIT: THIS IS NOT A SPAM THREAD BTW.]

Wow! We are getting desperate for thread ideas, huh?
Posted by: elnegr0grande on 02:25 CST :: 11/19/2006
Still never heard that song.
When I am ruler of the world I am going to destroy all the pump machines and kill a clown.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 02:28 CST :: 11/19/2006
Do note one thing. The intention of this wasn't to be random and change the topic with EVERY post, but more like one where people could just say random stuff that's on their mind and just talk, perhaps like a chat room conversation...
And elnegr0, you need to hear it. Go to the Exclusive PH Members forum NOW!

I like all other songs Turkey said, but Hyun Jin Young Go Jin Young Go IMO sounds so... dumb.
Not a bad song either, it's worth a listen.

Ive sleept on a DX machine before . I kind of got bored by the Premiere 3, good thing its back to The Prex .
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 07:55 CST :: 11/19/2006
Shake it Up sucks.
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 08:24 CST :: 11/19/2006
Shake it Up is an awesome song, and anyone who disagree deserves to be bitchslapped.
EDIT: But Do it Yourself and Free are better.
Posted by: Koop on 11:24 CST :: 11/19/2006
I'm kinda glad doubles is free for Pump, unlike that DDR. Doubles mode is like my favorite mode cuz its not only like hard, but makes me hog both sides so i can be greedy and selfish :3
Posted by: DaNcEfReEk! on 11:47 CST :: 11/19/2006
I like Monkey Fingers.
Posted by: arturocrazy on 12:02 CST :: 11/19/2006
I love Another Truth Another Freestyle:
.... ....I got It!!!
left foot: (1st pad)
right foot: (2nd pad)
Posted by: Koop on 12:06 CST :: 11/19/2006
I remember when triples were something to WTF at, then UM had freaking quads!!
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 13:42 CST :: 11/19/2006
Another Truth Another FS... the one with 2000 steps right?
I was told by blodiaspike that it was exactly the same as the regular Double chart, except it has super-fast holds where the single steps used to be. Or is it different?
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 13:48 CST :: 11/19/2006
Look the < video >
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 14:12 CST :: 11/19/2006
She likes Pizza NM rocks...even though it's painfull
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 14:13 CST :: 11/19/2006
Um....WOW. Another Truth Another FS is ridiculous.
Also, which song is < this? > I'm in a library and the sound is off, and I didn't recognize the stepchart, so if I should've easily known from the song I'm sorry, but I was just curious.
Posted by: Koop on 14:16 CST :: 11/19/2006
You know i still want to do Chinese Restraunt NM. The whole split thing seemed very amusingly painful
Posted by: WaltCip on 14:35 CST :: 11/19/2006
I like She Likes Pizza NM too. It's probably the most "freestylish" NM.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 15:13 CST :: 11/19/2006
Holy shit, what the hell is that. THAT IS AWESOME.
What the hell is the tick on those holds? 128? DAMN!
EDIT: for FUCK'S sake! That guy has like 12 videos of NX... but aside from Another Truth A-FS, EVERY FREAKING VIDEO is the SAME SHIT we've already seen! Two Chimera videos, two each of 2-1 and 2-2, Witch Doctor #1, Bullfighter's Song... why in the hell do they not film anything else? How annoying is that.
EDIT 2: peacemaker, I don't know what that song is either.
Posted by: Koop on 15:29 CST :: 11/19/2006
It seems like AT A FS looks more stupid then the AT A NM.
Which is bad.
EDIT - BEEMERA
Posted by: Canelita on 17:02 CST :: 11/19/2006
If you look closely you could see the machine... or the game, instead, thats its not a NX.
Posted by: gotmilk0112 on 17:38 CST :: 11/19/2006
oops sry. well anyways piu is coo buti wana play on the exceed arcade so i can play the easier LIADZ CZ.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 17:39 CST :: 11/19/2006
I know.......Vamos Cabrones, Donde esta Gun Rock, 2006 love song, Ugly Dee y Do you know that old skool?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 17:43 CST :: 11/19/2006
I edited the topic title of this forum to maybe better explain the intention of this thread and demonstrate how this thread wasn't intended to be spam-bait. It's about random PIU discussion.
The post gotmilk made is a clear example of what this thread is NOT about.
On that note, let's continue.
Posted by: arturocrazy on 18:00 CST :: 11/19/2006
I got tired of watching 1000 times the same PIU NX videos, what about Freestyles, Hard. Missions, Training Mode!!!!!!
(is there someone from Mexico with a camera reading this!!!!)
Posted by: Pawprint on 18:13 CST :: 11/19/2006
I used Kuhazan's "all modes" steps as a base and made a half-double for Com'back. It's fun, but I might have made it a little too hard in places. I'm debating whether to try my hand at a Freestyle (because Kuhazan's is simply the Hard split across two pads and I want something a little different) or wait for NX which will have an official FS.
I hope this was random enough....
Posted by: Koop on 20:18 CST :: 11/19/2006
half double? You mean Zero's NMs?
Posted by: gotmilk0112 on 20:22 CST :: 11/19/2006
LIADZ CZ is a bitch.
Posted by: bse523 on 20:45 CST :: 11/19/2006
Take a look at the NX promo vid from WPF and pause it at 1:29. We may have our level system. Take a look at the disc images at the bottom left/right corners of them. Discuss.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 21:01 CST :: 11/19/2006
hey yeah but why does it say Lv.12 for a normal song?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 21:31 CST :: 11/19/2006
My thoughts exactly.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 21:32 CST :: 11/19/2006
I don't even see the Difficulty Level numbers anywhere. Just the icons.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 21:48 CST :: 11/19/2006
1:28-1:29. Pause it.
Posted by: Koop on 22:00 CST :: 11/19/2006
Did you see in the NX video when it showed Phantom OMG I LED!!!
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 22:06 CST :: 11/19/2006
It's funny how they showed some ghetto Phantom chart with crap all over the screen while in the background we hear:
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 22:16 CST :: 11/19/2006
Well, today I managed to get down the step patterns during Hard so hopefully soon I can do some Crazy songs.
Oh, Get Up is awesome. So is Monkey Fingers.
Posted by: Koop on 23:02 CST :: 11/19/2006
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 23:20 CST :: 11/19/2006
Oh I see. 12 for Wuthering Heights, 20 for Chimera, etc. All on Normal. But how do you know that's really a rating system and not something else? Besides, why would the game ever need more than one rating system in the first place?
Posted by: WaltCip on 23:26 CST :: 11/19/2006
I think they should just stick with the old Exceed 1 rating system. Normals are 1-5, Hards are 4-9, and Crazies are 7-15. It makes more sense than this complicated mess they've got here.
Posted by: Koop on 23:26 CST :: 11/19/2006
They're trying to go for a Pop'n music scale.
Will of the Wisp is a 40 on E-err crazy i hear.
Posted by: WaltCip on 23:39 CST :: 11/19/2006
As long as there are Pump players, there will still be songs that transcend the insanity of difficulty, Will o' the Witch Doctor being one of them.
Posted by: Pawprint on 16:20 CST :: 11/20/2006
No, I mean the actual Half-Double mode. Remember, I have a Prem 2.
Posted by: WaltCip on 16:27 CST :: 11/20/2006
Why don't they give Foot Ratings for the Another steps? I want to know what I'm playing before I'm forced into jump-turn 16th runs at 180 BPM.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 17:18 CST :: 11/20/2006
I don't know how, but I beat Turkey March on Crazy. >_> I think it just didn't have that complex of steps as opposed to other songs of its difficulty.
Posted by: WaltCip on 17:30 CST :: 11/20/2006
Don't let people tell you otherwise, Turkey March (11/12) is quite difficult. Some people can't drill at 140 BPM. It's pretty much a judgment call. I think Andamiro has several people test songs and work out an average. The Rap: Act 3 has an extremely inflated difficulty (12). If you speed it up, it turns into a level 8. Ignition Starts and Hypnosis are quite easy, most of it is just plain stamina consistency.
The only level 12 crazies that pose challenges are the ones that mix complicated steps with stamina. Mr. Larpus is a likely candidate, as well as Get Up, and My Way.
Valenti will be the first Crazy you A, I'll bet.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 17:40 CST :: 11/20/2006
Mr. Larpus and Get Up are 13's. Maybe you're thinking of Exceed 1. You should not trust 90% of the ratings you see on Exceed 1 because almost all of them are COMPLETELY wrong.
For all the ratings from Exceed 1 to Zero, take a look at this: < http://www.ph-online.net/html/ph_songlist2.html >
Posted by: Pawprint on 17:52 CST :: 11/20/2006
uh, Let The Sunshine will most likely be the first Crazy he (or anyone) A's, unless we're talking about Zero.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 18:26 CST :: 11/20/2006
Um... I just A'd Turkey March, I should say... with 9 misses only...
Posted by: WaltCip on 19:08 CST :: 11/20/2006
Okay, I'm wrong. Valenti CZ is NOT the first song that you will A.
Posted by: gotmilk0112 on 19:56 CST :: 11/20/2006
What do you really want CZ is a 16
but that might just be smelly ol' Exceed SE (home ver.)
LIADZ CZ is an 18 =P
and i KNOW that LIADZ CZ got changed stepchart from exceed arcade to exceed home version. wtf it frickin went up 7 levels! =P
Posted by: WaltCip on 20:05 CST :: 11/20/2006
Exceed SE difficulty is the same as Exceed 2.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 22:13 CST :: 11/20/2006
MissionPossible showed me a new design poster for NX by the artist Kann... look at how badass this artwork is:
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 22:18 CST :: 11/20/2006
What is it with the Pump girls being so... risque. I love the art, but still, if they keep pushing the envelope, they won't be able to have the mascots in kids' arcades anymore.
Looks like that's a HTL specific design though, so, coolness.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 03:56 CST :: 11/21/2006
Do you really see Pump It Up as marketable as a kids' game? Because in reality Pump isn't a kid's game at all.
And that's... not... really all that risque.
Posted by: Leccoc on 20:03 CST :: 11/21/2006
Guys.............. I just noticed that the girl that appears in Love Song and Disco Bus also appears in the Options Menu in the Prex 3 PC. Did anyone noticed this already? Sorry If you had!!! I can't believe I just noticed it!!!!! I love that girl!!!! XD
Posted by: WaltCip on 08:50 CST :: 11/22/2006
Girl or boy?
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 09:52 CST :: 11/22/2006
Diverbras is already distributing the NX kits
Posted by: tuttifruity32 on 14:47 CST :: 11/22/2006
.. they should make posters of hot PIU guys too.. because they have girl players too ;)
oh.. btw.. I hope I'm not the only one who agrees with Turkeyslam's song.. "jigjig" .. like.. it's not THAT bad of a song o.O;
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 22:25 CST :: 11/22/2006
Haha, today I was playing Exceed for PS2 again and the mat did the strangest thing.
Pressing the center button not only meant pressing the center, but up-left as well. >_> You couldn't select a song and when selecting a song, it would go up a channel and then select the song.
Then I realized that maybe that is the reason why I am not doing X-Treme hard that well...
Posted by: WaltCip on 22:39 CST :: 11/22/2006
That could be why I'm always passing Monkey Fingers and Chicken Wing at home, but don't even come close in the arcade.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 22:46 CST :: 11/22/2006
Well, Monkey Fingers Hard has a freeze on up-left and then goes to center. It is no wonder I always kept missing that... >_>
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 05:32 CST :: 11/26/2006
Hey... I'm keeping this thread alive.
Anyway... new topic. What do you guys think of the overall NX song list? I posted it at the front page of PH.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 10:05 CST :: 11/26/2006
well they get rid of the shitty songs which is good............................
but why take out My Way and Al Famy?
and where's the rivial of Get Your Groove ON
Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 12:02 CST :: 11/26/2006
Yeah, I was a little disappointed that they took out Street Showdown, and frankly I really don't like Guilty Conscience very much.
Though I am excited to see what World Tour is like! All new step charts for every song makes me really excited!
Posted by: gotmilk0112 on 12:10 CST :: 11/26/2006
i can beat Another LIADZ NM all by myself
Posted by: WaltCip on 12:18 CST :: 11/26/2006
No, you can't.
Posted by: Jared on 13:36 CST :: 11/26/2006
Aw, c'mon, I could do that with my butt.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 11:30 CST :: 11/27/2006
So... does this explain the new level system? Some Korean posted this at Piugame... could it really be this simple?
Under this system (I ran through and plucked random levels from Youtube videos)...
Go Back EZ = level 1
Fly EZ = level 2
Witch Doctor #1 EZ = level 2
Arch of Darkness EZ = level 2
Chimera EZ = level 4 (WTF, HELL NO)
LIADZ2 Full CZ = level 19
Banya-P Classical Mix CZ = level 20
Beat of the War 2 Full CZ = level 21
Final Audition Episode 2-2 CZ = level 22
Wi-Doc-Ex-Va Remix CZ = level 22
Chimera CZ = level 23
Wi-Doc-Ex-Va Remix NM = level 24
Bemera Remix CZ = level 24
But then again.... some of the stars appear to be halved for songs below "17".
The promotional video also shows Wuthering Heights and Emergency to be a level 1... eh...
Posted by: Jared on 12:33 CST :: 11/27/2006
That's what I thought it was originally... What's that hanggeul say next to the arrow?
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 16:35 CST :: 11/27/2006
Based on that system, Bullfighter's Song CZ (one skull) is a 17. Doesn't make any sense to me.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 20:26 CST :: 11/27/2006
They are taking out My Way? I love that song. I can only do a bit of Crazy at home, but... I like that song...
And I want more Get Your Groove On. Its slower but more fun.
BTW, played yesterday morning. I guess I was too worn out from lack of sleep or somthing as I had a really bad cramp after playing a few songs. D'ed X-Treme HD too, which... I felt bad after doing that poorly. >_>
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 21:40 CST :: 11/27/2006
2006 Love song = greatest BanYa with vocals to date. Betrayer #2 mofos!
< *cough* >
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 16:33 CST :: 11/28/2006
I don't know if it's THAT good, but I do like it. Especially the violin in the background. And yeah, it sounds a hell of a lot better than Betrayer.
Right now, however, I'm looping Chimera over and over again as I type this. I swear I will not quit Pump until I pass this song on Crazy.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 18:14 CST :: 11/28/2006
The BGA for Guilty Conscience is Risque
Posted by: valius on 19:49 CST :: 11/28/2006
You hadn't seen it before?
Then again... I'm surprised not that many people have modded Prex 3s or have downloaded Ahnada's Prex 3 to check out the songs/favorites we're missing.
That BGA is probably "sexier" than Ba Be Loo Be Ra... oh what those crazy teens will do when they see it on NX...
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 19:58 CST :: 11/28/2006
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 20:36 CST :: 11/28/2006
or get a huge boner
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 20:41 CST :: 11/28/2006
They'll do both.
Also... blodiaspike told me that the thing with 1-8, 9-16, 17-24 in the picture isn't too far from the truth. He talked to some Andamiro guy. This is how it works.
level 2 = «
level 4 = ««
level 6 = «««
level 8 = ««««
level 10 = «««««
level 12 = ««««««
level 14 = «««««««
level 16 = ««««««««
level 17 = N
level 18 = NN
level 19 = NNN
level 20 = NNNN
level 21 = NNNNN
level 22 = NNNNNN
level 23 = NNNNNNN
level 24 = NNNNNNNN
This explains the halved stars. One and a half = level 3, for example. BTW, the icon I chose for the skull kind of sucks... but the 17+ things that look like circles actually are skulls.
And for songs such as LIADZ2 Another Nightmare, Bee Another Nightmare, etc, which are steps for two people rather that one, the level is "????????".
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 21:03 CST :: 11/28/2006
what about Chimera NM? it has ???????? also
Posted by: Pawprint on 21:18 CST :: 11/28/2006
Okay, so it's not exactly a skull (and no guarantee everyone has this font)...
Level 17 = …
Level 18 = ……
Level 19 = ………
Level 20 = …………
Level 21 = ……………
Level 22 = ………………
Level 23 = …………………
Level 24 = ……………………
EDIT: Okay, new game! Everyone dig through Wingdings, Webdings, and Symbol and see if you can come up with better ratings icons than Andamiro did! (And if most people have Wingdings 2 and 3, they're fair game too.)
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 21:21 CST :: 11/28/2006
Quoting myself from the last page because I still don't see how it could be true. To me that song looks like a 15, tops.
Oh, and to Moonlight...I don't think "24" even comes CLOSE to measuring how hard Chimera NM is.
Posted by: Pawprint on 21:22 CST :: 11/28/2006
Clearly, whatever the hardest song is should get this: ¥
Hate should get this: D
Are you ready? Flower Of Night: |
Up Up: ññ
Bullfighter's Song (somebody stop me!): _
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 21:41 CST :: 11/28/2006
They gave it an incorrect rating. This is not something new.
Posted by: WaltCip on 17:58 CST :: 11/29/2006
Yes, for instance, the CZ rating for Monkey Fingers in Exceed 1 is 17. 17 is the highest difficulty in Exceed 1, which is an inconsistency, since Dignity (15 in Exceed 1) is obviously the hardest.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 17:59 CST :: 11/29/2006
Great.....why in the world a change in the difficulty scale
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 13:42 CST :: 11/30/2006
Probably to stir things up a bit. A ton of stuff in NX is very experimental.
Also, if any of you were still wondering what the beta Dignity Nightmare steps were like from the beta version of Exceed, Dignity Full Mix Nightmare has a few parts taken directly from it!
Take a look around 1:05 or so. The original steps had that sequence there with the same quad holds.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 23:49 CST :: 12/01/2006
Also.... WTF IS THIS
Hi there, 5x and 6x!
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 00:17 CST :: 12/02/2006
What exactly is Yahpp's "Fire" supposed to be? I haven't heard it or seen it on video at all, though I know it's hidden. I hope it doesn't turn out to be harder than Chimera.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 00:20 CST :: 12/02/2006
It's not. Fire is the song you saw in that video where they played the mission with the steps all over the place and you had to step on the gaps.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 00:32 CST :: 12/02/2006
Heh, 6x. Like I'll ever use that. I can barely do 4x. >_>
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 00:37 CST :: 12/02/2006
5x and 6x are a GODSEND for the songs that are slow as hell and for people who like doing extremely fast stuff but are unable to do so because the song has too low a BPM.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 00:45 CST :: 12/02/2006
*hack hack* WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT *hack hack*
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 01:09 CST :: 12/02/2006
I didn't mean the slower songs. I meant the faster songs. Slower songs are great on 4x.
Then again, I always have it on 3x unless it exceeds 190 BPM...
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 01:15 CST :: 12/02/2006
HELOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GUN ROCK CZ!
Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 11:11 CST :: 12/02/2006
5x and 6x...........After 8 mixes, they now finally figure this out?
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 17:44 CST :: 12/02/2006
Heh, I tried My Way CZ with 3x and got past the second "Hey Hey Heyeyeyyy" part. If I could read the arrows better then I could do it, but the arrows are still a little hard for me to read. Heh. I am getting better, though. Before I couldn't even get past the main chorus of the song. >_>
Valentini CZ was passed today, though. I'm happy about that.
And someone online said he played Zero and liked What's Goin' On and I downloaded it to listen to it. Now, I can't wait for NX to play it. >_>
Posted by: valius on 00:23 CST :: 12/03/2006
The CZ for What's Going On isn't very hard, but it's just a lot of fun as a warm-up or a song to do when you're too tired to get annihilated by Solitary 2 CZ, Pump Me Amadeus CZ, Chung Hwa Ban Jeom CZ, etc.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 00:28 CST :: 12/03/2006
8? Try 19.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 00:40 CST :: 12/03/2006
I heard What's Goin' On isn't hard, but hey, it just sounds like good fun.
Posted by: WaltCip on 14:19 CST :: 12/03/2006
That's more proof it's a hoax. You can have 6x in StepMania.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 14:30 CST :: 12/03/2006
Dude, it's just a speed mod. There's no cause for concern unless you see mods directly from ITG appearing in the game.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 14:58 CST :: 12/03/2006
Where's my C600 mod for Moonlight?!?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 15:28 CST :: 12/03/2006
You can have 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 7x, and 8x at the touch of a button (of a keyboard) on any PC or arcade mix. They just finally gave 5x and 6x a playable code in NX. There's no hoax anymore.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 16:07 CST :: 12/03/2006
Finaly. 5x for "slower" stuff like Solitary 2 and 6x for WDYRW. God, I can't wait to play NX just to unlock those speed mods. There are SOOO many songs that benefit from 5/6x for speed whores like me.
Posted by: kiufreak on 21:19 CST :: 12/03/2006
Yeah, even though i cant pass WDYRW in the X2 here, i might be able to with 6X speed because thats how I play it on the Prex 3. (Thats the only way i can practice without making myself look like a dumbass at the arcade)
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 19:23 CST :: 12/04/2006
While we don't have the MP3 of Ugly Dee yet, it's been posted what it's a classical remix of (yep, it's classical). I RECOGNIZE THIS!
So... peacemaker or anyone else who knows this thing, any insight?
Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake Ballet... GREAT choice for a classical remix if done right.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 20:07 CST :: 12/04/2006
Well, it's not quite the Trepak from the Nutcracker ballet, which was what I was REALLY hoping for, but I'm not complaining. It's a good tune. I love how Banya classicals are always remixes of songs with good melodies, not necessarily with steppable rhythms.
Oh, and considering that we're dealing with Swan Lake here, I think "Ugly Dee" is supposed to refer to "ugly duckling".
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 20:42 CST :: 12/04/2006
Most likely, hahaha!
And I assume the steps are pretty easy, since the Mexicans haven't filmed it yet.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 21:20 CST :: 12/04/2006
I don't think it's THAT easy, it's part of a Remix that's rated 18 on Crazy and 20 on Nightmare.
I mean, it may not be the new Moonlight, but something tells me it isn't Point Break 2 either.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 22:45 CST :: 12/04/2006
I got past all the "Hey Hey Heyeyeyeee" parts on My Way CZ, then failed.
>_> You know, I'd probably pass it in the arcade...
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 23:11 CST :: 12/04/2006
General question that I didn't think deserved a thread.
Have you ever watched a video of a stepchart, and said "yeah, I can do that", and later tried it at the arcade, only to realize it was MUCH harder than it looked? My first try at Solitary 2 CZ was like that for me. I could do the twists all right, but I almost too exhausted to go on after the first slowdown. Somehow I pulled off a C in the end though.
Posted by: Kishiru on 06:14 CST :: 12/05/2006
No, when ever I see a video I never think I can do it I always think it's to hard.
Posted by: WaltCip on 06:28 CST :: 12/05/2006
Can-Can CZ FTW.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 08:11 CST :: 12/05/2006
Extravaganza nm. When I first saw a video of it, I thought it wouldn't be to bad. I tried it at the arcade and failed miserably. That was several months ago. I'm sure I could get a C on it now.
One thing I find interesting in Pump. Songs that you thought were impossible become easy after practice. I know I used to suck at IGYAML crazy/nm w/100+ misses alot. Now I can't A' the crazy no bar (not w/o stage break though. :/) and nightmare w/bar. I love these charts since they are so easy to read, yet fast and challenging. I need to try the nm no bar one day. I should be able to get a D on it.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 10:20 CST :: 12/05/2006
All depends on the chart, actually. Looking at some of the Crazy charts at home I feel I could do some of them and sometimes after doing them I could do them.
However, there are some that I think I can do since they don't seem to be hard looking at them and then all of a sudden they kill me...
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 10:57 CST :: 12/05/2006
How could I have forgotten this chart, regarding my own little mini-topic here:
MONKEY FINGERS NM. Somehow I pulled off a D on my first try even though that chart gave me pulsating cramps in BOTH legs.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 13:49 CST :: 12/05/2006
Extravaganza A-CZ. But it was only because the first time I saw it, the damn guy got an A with what seemed like little to no effort.
On the flipside, Do It Yourself A-NM was 20x easier than in the videos. Got a strong A first try.
Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 16:43 CST :: 12/06/2006
N Crazy (the new steps).
I thought the speed up would be easy to compensate and that the 32nd's were not all that bad. Boy was I wrong! I thought it would be an easy A but I barely B'ed it the first time around.

Okay Turkey, I concede...I'm actually starting to LIKE Hyun Jin Young Go Jin Young Go.
Just not the stepchart...yet.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 21:57 CST :: 12/07/2006
Today I saw someone do Bombole CZ before my first period class (he failed, just like I failed everything else in there) and later on during my club I did it and got an A. I swear, the floor is screwed up in my first period class to cause buttons to not work on the soft pad. >_>
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 22:52 CST :: 12/07/2006
HAH. You've fallen for the dark side.
The Nightmare's even more funny.
Watch the Crazy and remember the general gist of what the BGA is like. Then watch the NX preview video and you'll see it again... the Nightmare.
Posted by: Victoria on 22:54 CST :: 12/07/2006
Mine has done this a few times with a few different directions..I guess that's what I get for using it on carpet? Oh well.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 23:26 CST :: 12/07/2006
You mean the one with all the stops that's shown right before the reprise of Bee in Bemera? That doesn't look TOO scary, but then again, that was just a 5-second segment.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 12:37 CST :: 12/08/2006
You all may find me a hater of "good freestyles", but that isn't true. I just can identify when something sucks or not. On the other hand... THIS is what an original freestyle is all about. Utteraly fantastic. Wait for the ending.
And that's not random Taekwondo shit either. That's based off the poomse "Koryo". I remember it from the days I took TKD (last saw it on my black belt rank test). Fucking great.
Posted by: tuttifruity32 on 14:58 CST :: 12/08/2006
Sweet!! I actually wanted to join Karate or TaeKwonDo when I was younger but my mom didn't want to because she was scared I'd get hurt or that it was dangerous or something v_v
Posted by: gotmilk0112 on 15:45 CST :: 12/08/2006
when i joined taekwondo the contract was:
we could go 4 days a week for $57.
but they broke that contract by making you buy some $900 black suit to go on tues. and thur. and it was $57 a week EVEN IF U DIDNT GO! so we jsut quit. it was pretty stupid too they were teaching us pretty spinny kicks and these "combos" that you would have a 1/589370 chance of actually using in real life.
well anyways back on topic:
QUESTION: is it possible to "S" a song with all bads?
Posted by: Pawprint on 16:31 CST :: 12/08/2006
I doubt you can S a song with all bads because I know people who got x number of bads and got an A on a song instead of the S they were expecting.
Posted by: WaltCip on 17:19 CST :: 12/08/2006
Awesome leetness Koryo-style!
Upload it to PH media mainspace ASAP, Turkey!
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 03:16 CST :: 12/09/2006
Also... it's very true that this game is catered to freestylers. Check out the levels of some of the songs on FS mode:
We Goin' Fly Remix - level 6
Sam-I-Am - level 4
Bust Back - level 5
Throw 'Em Up - level 5
Hybs - level 4
Hold the Line - level 4
So - level 2
My Brother is Street Singer - level 3
Hyun Jin Young Go Jin Young Go - level 6
Gun Rock - level 6
2006 Love Song - level 4
Handsome Character That Pass - level 3
For You - level 5
Terminal Depository - level 5
Lovely - level 4
U Inside My Dim Memory - level 4
Go Back - level 3
Also, I've made an Excel with all of the levels I've collected so far from NX videos posted online. I have about half of the levels now... not too bad.
Posted by: gotmilk0112 on 10:20 CST :: 12/09/2006
i know i saw somewhere on these forums that the difficulty in NX goes 1-40. is that true? or was it just speculation before the official info was released?
Posted by: bse523 on 10:29 CST :: 12/09/2006
1-40? Uh who was that drunk? And the level system's been explained a few times now. Search it.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 22:25 CST :: 12/09/2006
Just watched the Chimera Normal video. I think AM is once again trying to scare us with the rating of that song, at least on THAT level, into getting us to think that song is totally evil, just like they did with LIADZ2. LIADZ2 HD was definitely not one of the harder 15's, the CZ was rated 21 but it was arguably easier than Dignity or Canon-D, and the NM was rated 23 but it seems like many people found the 21's and 22's and even Bee to be harder.
And Chimera Normal is an 8? Seriously, with all those holds and almost no twists, it doesn't hold a candle to PMA, Winter, or Will o' the Wisp on Hard.
Posted by: Jared on 11:57 CST :: 12/10/2006
I was watching the video for Shake It Up this morning and I swear the parts where the car is driving around are based on real locations because I think I've been to at least one of them. But I can't for the life of me figure out where on earth they are.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 18:30 CST :: 12/10/2006
Ugly Dee CZ-Easy
Ugly Dee NM-Rocks
Hyun Jin Young Go Jin Young Go-CZ, monkey fingers+Jackhammers+Random anime ppl. running around
Gun Rock NM-i went and cryed in a corner......i hope the another isn't a barrage of quads
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 18:33 CST :: 12/10/2006
It wouldn't be surprising. A lot of the stuff in the videos in Pump is taken from stock footage, and pictures/video of landmarks and such are pretty common.
Can Can comes in mind when it comes to that.
Posted by: WaltCip on 05:43 CST :: 12/11/2006
Shake It Up is more subtle. Can Can is basically just a landmark extravaganza. (No pun intended.)
Posted by: Jared on 07:58 CST :: 12/11/2006
But this was CG which is what surprised me.
Also, I find it amusing that the guy's shirt says "Dance Dance."
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 16:04 CST :: 12/11/2006
Maybe he got the t-shirt from a Fall Out Boy concert.
Posted by: Jared on 19:21 CST :: 12/14/2006
..so wait, what's all this about FAE2-2 being gone?
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 19:25 CST :: 12/14/2006
according to Turkeyslam, it's locked in the final version
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 21:32 CST :: 12/14/2006
Final version has it hidden, along with Fire by Yahpp.
Funny how they mentioned those songs on the songlist on the NX page before yoinking them out.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 22:11 CST :: 12/14/2006
speaking of Hidden..how do you unlock stuff? do u play the living crap out of Arcade Station or is it easier to beat the Woruld Tour stages?
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 22:17 CST :: 12/14/2006
Maybe a combination of both?
If it is just World Tour... uh... looks like I'll have to give that a shot to help unlock everything. If it is just Arcade, yay!
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 12:07 CST :: 12/24/2006
Okay, I'm still a little confused here about the "beta" NX.
Supposedly Spork has a "beta" version of the game. What about Pawprint? And, what changes do we KNOW are there? (FAE2-2 being locked is the only one I know of, what else is there?) Are there any other changes rumored to be there that haven't been confirmed yet?
I'm just wondering how drastically different the real NX is going to be from the beta, because Exceed 1 was NOTHING like it was in the testing stages.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 13:25 CST :: 12/24/2006
The beta version was released in Mexico before WPF. The machine at WPF was final. All versions released elsewhere are final.
Spork has the beta because he got it off eBay from Mexicans who had the beta version. Pawprint and everyone else will have final versions.
Steps are totally identical. Here are the only differences:
-calorie count garbage is on all discs in the final but not on the beta, and also after your credit
-glitches in beta version, such as the 15-credit glitch, are all fixed in the final version
-Final Audition Episode 2-2 was available from the start in the beta version, but is now an unlock in the final version
-several Full Song, uh... songs were HIDDEN rather than behind a lock in beta versions, but those are now fully there in the final version
-NX beta allowed you to input keyboard commands in gameplay. This has been disabled in the final version of the game that we'll all be playing.
In a nutshell, beta is better. Just like with Exceed 1.
Posted by: bse523 on 23:54 CST :: 12/24/2006
only world tour mode unlocks stuff.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 10:55 CST :: 12/25/2006
Oh, on another note, I'm also pretty sure there were more than one "in-progress" beta versions with different things in them. It wasn't just one version. I am pretty sure Spork's machine doesn't have the glitch nor the "hidden rather than locked" stuff in Special Station.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 17:51 CST :: 12/25/2006
Andamiro need to have a better time-release system. It really isn't fair to FORCE people to survive psychotic missions just to play hidden songs.
Also, Gun Rock is in Zero.
Watch the WPF Commercial and listen closely.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 09:27 CST :: 12/26/2006
Witch Doctor #1 as well. But they were never playable in the game or in the HD, so I assume the music was incomplete back then and they didn't include those songs because of that.
Posted by: DarkCrystal on 16:43 CST :: 12/26/2006
I've had Epik High - Fly on loop for an unhealthy amount of time.
These are the best new songs ever.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 19:38 CST :: 12/26/2006
Where'd you hear WD#1 at?
Also, D&B update: the tech has no idea. But that's okay, judging by what DC claims about the Swap Shop.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 19:43 CST :: 12/26/2006
Maybe we're not talking about the same thing.
It's 3/5ish through the Zero promo vid. They play WD -and- WD#1.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 20:24 CST :: 12/26/2006
Gun Rock is played during the WPF Commercial advertising the big cash prizes on every Zero mix.

So I've been sick for a few days and stuck inside, and was bored last night and decided to translate this World Tour list that I was linked to on PumpBR, a Brazilian Pump it Up forum. The link to the page, here: < http://z14.invisionfree.com/PumpBR/index.php?showtopic=3457&st=0 >
All I did was copy and paste this; as such I take no credit aside from the easy translation.
Keep in mind that this is incomplete so I just did what was there. Hope it helps someone, somehow.
The "modes" in parenthesis, as far as I know, denote how easy or hard the chart is, since most of them are charts specific to World Tour mode. Unless otherwise noted by "Real mode" then they are indeed World Tour-specific.
Oh yeah, if you don't wanna know about the missions, then ignore my post.

What do the 'real' and 'fake' classifications mean?
Posted by: noisuf0 on 18:18 CST :: 1/01/2007
thanks for all the info, i've put it all into an easy to read graph/chart on my site, < http://piuzone.com/worldtour.html > , with flags and everything.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 20:26 CST :: 1/01/2007
Um, that's really freaking cheap, you damn plagiarizer.
First off, that PumpBR site has its whole site collaborating on getting the mission info and it's not complete. Wayne wasn't stealing their work but merely linking to them and translating what they wrote, giving full credit to the findings.
You on the other hand copy pasted Wayne's translated info, gave no credit whatsoever, and made it a "new section on your site". If you want respect from people in the community, you need to do ORIGINAL THINGS. Copy/pasting other people's work is total bullshit. Why haven't we here at Pump Haven made a section of the site ourselves with this info? BECAUSE IT IS NOT OUR WORK.
Posted by: noisuf0 on 20:40 CST :: 1/01/2007
did you even look at it? i talked to him.
i had the "section" on my site a long time ago, too, actually, if you look back in another thread, of me asking someone if they had any info on world tour mode. i'm just trying to make things easier for people, by putting "sections". It's a lot easier to go somewhere and click "world tour", rather than dig around a forum trying to find shit (like PH) in a "random" thread.
i hope you die anyways, so i don't really care. .
Posted by: WaltCip on 20:50 CST :: 1/01/2007
That alone makes me not want to play NX.
Unless you get 5 people and just have them jump on each panel nonstop.
Posted by: WayneC02 on 20:55 CST :: 1/01/2007
Guys, we already talked about it and it's fine. Sorry I didn't get in here sooner to clear this up.
I put it in the "random" thread because it didn't deserve its own thread, as I only copied the info. PumpBR gets all the credit for all of that. I'm not gonna be updating the rest of it anyway, out of respect for PumpBR and their entire site's efforts. Sorry guys.
Posted by: noisuf0 on 21:00 CST :: 1/01/2007
the pump "community" (if that's what you even call it) now is just lovely.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 21:02 CST :: 1/01/2007
I did look at it. You talked to him and changed your site AFTER I mentioned it to him on AIM that some random leecher copy/pasted his shit.
This was posted in a "random thread" because IT IS NOT OUR WORK. I actually asked Wayne not to make a new thread about it or post it in any kind of meaningful way, merely as a courtesy to the people on the Brazilian site who have been going out of their way to get all this information compiled.
And yeah... that's the most excellent way to defend your leeching. By telling me that you hope I die. Get the fuck out.
And you have a lot of balls to rip on our community, haha. At least we have active members here. What about your site? Are you like, what... the only person who posts there?
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 21:08 CST :: 1/01/2007
News flash: Pump Haven doesn't exactly get its coverage out of thin air. Brian's basically just doing what PH does. Posting information on the series as it appears. It's not like he didn't credit the source.
You really need to chill about this crap. We're all on the same side, and I bet PumpBR wouldn't post that stuff in the first place if they didn't want people to know.
Posted by: noisuf0 on 21:12 CST :: 1/01/2007
i'm not talking about site popularity. i'm talking about how, look, now waynec won't even translate information that obviously the brasillians are trying to share with the community. because someone like you is scared it's not original or something. i do hope you die
sorry, my site isn't going to rely on it's members to support it. it's merely there as an alternative english site to get pump it up information easily. for people just playing the game that don't speak portugese, for instance.
i could care less if nobody goes to my site. at least i (personally) don't have to dig through these slow, gloomy, ugly forums to find just some small bit of information quickly.
For instance, right now, the past handful times i try to load any pages, i get:
"Service Temporarily Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.
Apache/1.3.33 Server at www.ph-online.net Port 80"
Just another reason I have a reliable site, like mine, without limits on downloads, without having to register to get things, with everything organized and easily accessible, available.

Posted by: Turkeyslam on 08:16 CST :: 1/03/2007
You're not helping by making a comment like that.
Me, I'm merely a defender of credits where they are due. Please find me a section of Pump Haven of any sort that doesn't fully cite its source if it's not original material. And on the things we do get help from other sources, it's either given or we get granted permission.
Yes, I get really pissy when people just copy/paste crap. But if people were respectful of the work of others, whether on the internet or not, then maybe it wouldn't be a problem.
Regarding our NX coverage, I basically spammed everyone with citing blodiaspike for coverage info. And all of the info was compiled manually, through instant message conversations, unpublished video, etc etc. At least that's how it was for the content I published.
This post isn't a flame, so don't take it as one. But seriously, with you being a mod at Bemanistyle or whatever and the other dude being an admin in his own site, you have to adhere to some degree of professionalism with what you post. Cite sources, gather original content, and don't rely on copy/pasting from other sources all the time.
I acknowledged I might've gone off unjustly, but come on... it was direct plaigiarism. On a very serious note, I'm sure his site has potential, but he has to bust his ass to get original content. Dedicate time to brainstorming new ideas. Do something that hasn't been done. That's how you make a website; you don't go anywhere just copy/pasting content.
And that is all. Please don't let this post deter from this thread remaining on topic...
...despite there not being one.

"Hello, it's Andamiro.
Thanks for supporting NX. We will be running NX at Enter Gamecenter for one month."
NX isn't actually released in Korea yet because "it hasn't been accepted by the government". so i guess they got permission to have it in Enter for a month until the official release.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 13:54 CST :: 1/07/2007
Hasn't been accepted by the government? Are you serious? That's... really weird.

Off topic.... really, but....
WPF 2006 caused this (I forgot where I read this):
"Citing safety concerns, Seoul's biggest amusement park, Lotte World, announced yesterday it will shut down all facilities for four months and undergo a full-scale renovation. Lotte World has been under fire for ignoring expert warnings about its aging facilities, despite a series of accidents including the death of an employee who fell off the roller coaster last year."
Posted by: FLAKK on 18:03 CST :: 1/10/2007
So I Dread and I have somewhat pieced together what Andamiro was going for with all of their skull ratings for NX. Take a look:
1 skull - 15/16 (Slam/Run CZ, both 15s)
2 skull - 16/17
3 skull - 17/18
4 skull - 18/19
5 skull - 19/20 (Shake it Up NM, a 19)
6 skull - 20/21 (Canon D NM, Moonlight NM, 20 and 21 respectively)
7 skull - 21/22
8 skull - 23+
Anyone have any thoughts on this, it seems as though Andamiro got tired of screwing up the ratings themselves so they left it up to us topiece together what some of them may be.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 20:19 CST :: 1/10/2007
Up to seven stars, level 14, the system is definitely unchanged. That's a given. However... beyond that, there is NO CORRELATION to the old scale. For example, BOTW1 is a 1 skull. That was a 13!
They re-rated the levels of the songs beyond level 14 of their own sale all over again. Opinions changed, levels jumped around, and that's the end of it. It's simply a new scale. Whether or not you want to merge it and call it a "new 15" or "new 22" is up to you, but there is, as I said, no correlation to the old scale. I'm sure they realized that the scale from 15 and up was completely broken and they tried to fix it. They failed. Still has the same dumbass mistakes it always had.
Posted by: WaltCip on 10:12 CST :: 1/12/2007
I'm immensely irritated by stepchart difficulties that are completely unbalanced. For instance, a "hard" stepchart for one song would have a difficulty of 4, but its "crazy" stepchart would be rated 14, so you can't find a happy medium.

Because if it's the former, I don't believe it since nobody's unlocked it yet.

So um...I just played Throw 'em Up CZ on Stepmania.
What the hell. That song SUCKS. Not only are the steps way too hard, but the music and the rap have all the enthusiasm of a guy reading the stock prices on Wall Street. Whatever. That song might actually end up being more fun on feet.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 01:57 CST :: 1/25/2007
It is indeed the worst (and probably the only bad) new song in NX. It is SLIGHTLY salvaged ingame... SLIGHTLY, but it sucks still.
And WaltCip - just playing 200 in general. And yes, it HAS been unlocked in final version machines already. That's where we got this info from. They monitored it in the operator menu, and when it counted a 200th play of the song (1 play = just CHOOSING it on any mode, regardless of the mode and grade), then 2-2 appeared.
Posted by: jbean3535 on 06:26 CST :: 1/25/2007
It also had THE worst cut in a professional dance game I have EVER heard. If you listen closely, parts of words were cut off, most heard in the very end. The new Banya Classical and Pop Remixes are horribly done.

Terminal Depository is an acquired taste. Well, for me, the taste was acquired. It's in my top 3 (probably top 2) in the entire game and I love it to pieces.
MBISS still sounds, well, like it does... but the chart is not bad at all.

Edit- Is there a filter for 1o1?
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 22:14 CST :: 2/14/2007
Chung Hwa Ban Jeom isn't necessarily lo1icon. It's just cute anime girls wearing skimpy clothing. I don't think they're depicted as being, like, 12 years old or something.

By the way, here in Peru we got stock in this missions:
Asia: Hong Kong: Fire: How can you do 220 steps or more if there's only 206 steps? Hidden ones?
North America: Ottawa: Csikos Post, Nobody wants to play it because of 3x, acceleration!!!
South America: Santiago: We haven't figured out how to do the Underattack !!!,
Do we have to do it by colors? By columns? Plattaform 1 is Plattaform 2?
Europe: Rome: Fly: I hate the part when it goes like 8x for a second,
Even if we know that we can change the PIUNX.ini we prefer the mission unlock way, but we will need some hints about some missions!!!

Soooo...any theories on WHY Handsome Character CZ has that ridiculous speed change?
My (really farfetched) theory is that maybe they were thinking of including the full version of the song in the game and those were the official steps. But then after they decided not to include it, they doubled the speed of the full stepchart starting at one point so they could cram in all those extra steps into a shorter time frame.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 16:13 CST :: 2/26/2007
It's for all those people who want Name of the Game CZ to be in an arcade mix.
Posted by: gotmilk0112 on 16:34 CST :: 2/26/2007
Name of the game? i hate that song. good song but retarded speed changes. like, if you put 4x on you can read it just fine, but the speed ups make it go to like 200 bpm and with 4x that is VERY bad

Posted by: cj_iwakura on 17:10 CST :: 2/26/2007
Moonlight Freestyle's where its at.
And Handsome Character is much, MUCH worse than Name of the Game. Its originally 120 something, making it go to ~240. Name of the Game is under 100, so it only goes to like 190 or so.
It's also a lot harder before the shift. Lots of runs. Fun runs, but still tougher than NotG's. After that, it's straight death drills.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 01:44 CST :: 2/27/2007
Um, yeah, of course Handsome Character's much worse, it has no logicality whatsoever. The speed changes in Name of the Game actually make sense to a certain degree along with the music.
Incidentally, Handsome's BPM is 125. It doubles to 250. Maybe it was made to be Andamiro's allusion to VerTex on ITG. Even the runs and step clusters in the slow half feel a bit like Vertex Expert, if you've played it.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 01:50 CST :: 2/27/2007
I was loving the first half of the song, and then I just started at the screen in shock while my feet went everywhere. It was insane.
And I was on 3X, no less. I won't make that mistake again.

Imagine the nonstop remix potential... Name of the Handsome Character...

Ah. I may never touched a PiU machine before, but I think you almost scaring me. Especialy when I fell in love with that song (AKA Hansome Character that Pass). (Imagine me humming as I go to the next class like I was falling in love... )
So... Yea. XD Maybe I won't like the steps too if the speed tempo changes...
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 15:52 CST :: 2/27/2007
Handsome character that Pass NM is an easier version of Shake it Up NM
meaning you will be jumping and galloping accross both pads..be warned it hurts the balls

Can someone please explain the third stage of the Rome mission (Fly double)? After the 100+ note freeze in the beginning there's the really fast jump at the other end and if i miss it my bar almost empties but if i hit it i hear a mine explosion and fail immediately.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 06:16 CST :: 2/28/2007
Well, now that I've played the CZ, I don't mind having some idea before throwing myself into another fire. :P Getting stage broke during a sight read isn't fun.

ok as yall can remember that i tried to pass with doctor in nightmare mode i had 700 perfects and 290 misses and some greats in there but this time
i did crash dignity ive gotten 600 perfects 87 greats 24 goods and 98 misses full combo 140 and i still got an F im playing on the nx machine, so how in the h$#l does this score ratio works, but each time i play the song i keep getting better though, i mean like back to back wise and other.
can some please explain to me how this score ratio works?

Kansas sucks. Only places with pump it up, are an All Star Sports, which has Pump it up exceed (It's almost broken!) and Cici's Pizza (broken PIU EX2). I tried Chuck e Cheese out of desperation (but they had no machine), and the one good place that had a functioning PIUEX2, traded their machine for...get this, not a PIUZero or PIUNX, but a lousy DDR Supernova! WTF!!! Supernova sucks, and if I really wanted to play it that badly, then I could just go to a movie theater to play it. But if they had enough money to buy a brand spanking new machine that came thin out of nowhere, why not Zero? Damn it! HOly Mexico in Cape Canaveral Batman! Rotten Mustard on a teriyaki crap strudel! Expletive! Expletive! Expletive! WTF! The only other place is in Kansas City, and that's like a...what? 3-4 hour drive away? And to play Zero for $2.00 a play? No way. God no. God Knows.

Half of what makes One Night fun are the steps and the BG. I didn't like the song much at all before that.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 17:55 CST :: 3/02/2007
It's frusturating that I can get 50 misses on X-Treme nm, but get over 70 on Solitary 2 cz. Next week, during spring break, I really need to work on twisting. I play streamy songs too often. :/
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 23:36 CST :: 3/02/2007
You are just weird. I think you need to balance yourself out a bit better in terms of stamina vs. skill. I find it very hard to believe that you have stamina to burn and can't twist much at all. If you could twist better you'd be an absolute beast.
I guess for now, play slower twisty songs like Enter the Dragon, Deja Vu, Do it Yourself, and Greenhorn, without double-stepping anything, until you can full-combo them.
Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 00:30 CST :: 3/03/2007
adding on to peace's post, you gotta make your feet flow like diarrhea (ok, bad analogy). Just try to alternate you feet every time. I know it's hard to resist double stepping, but once you get the hang of turning, your stamina will go up even more. ALSO, besides slow turning songs, do the upper level Hard songs as well, like PMA, Mr Larpus, Dignity, etc. Playing those songs multiple times, you automatically start to see the patterns and you start to turn them.
Speaking of technical skills, I've always struggled with drills. I've tried everything: hitting them flat-footed, hitting them on my toes, hitting them on my heels, dropping down and hitting them with my hands, you name it (ok, the last one's kinda pushin it ). Is there any way that people like peace and me can get better at drills?
Posted by: davyn on 00:38 CST :: 3/03/2007
practice them when you're not playing. just tap both your feet back and forth really fast when you're sitting. i just remembered i used to do that in class all the time and drills are really easy for me, .
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 00:43 CST :: 3/03/2007
It HURTS when I do that. Seriously, I've tried. I got cramps in my calves. And my legs lock up. And I don't hear any music at all so I know I'd be way off the beat.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 10:18 CST :: 3/03/2007
Thanks for the suggestions. Been awhile since I played hard mode. Also, I've been doing Dejava and getting in the single digit misses, so hopefuly I should have that S soon. I'll try the others. IIRC, I know I had problems with Greenhorn...a lot! And last time I tried Enter the Dragon (nm), I failed miserably a month ago...need consistancy!
It's hard to suggest how to improve on drills. Becuase of my work, I run at least two to three times a week for about two miles, plus I do a shit load of walking all over campus and stuff. Plus I ran a half marathon last month, so that should tell you something about my natural stamina.
But when it comes to rythm games, I just played whatever songs had simple patterns with the most steps. Pump: Winter, IGYAML, Com' Back, Extravaganza, Turkey March are good ones to practice, and if you have NX, U Inside My Dim Memory is excellent for long drills at a slow bpm. I also play DDR/ITG at home. Obvious choices for DDR are Max300, Can't Stop Falling in Love, Cartoon Hero's, Witch Doctor, etc. ITG I always liked Temple of Boom, Xuxa, Out of the Dark, and and Wanna Do *Hardcore Mix*.
As for technique, I'll tell you what you don't want to hear. Whatever works for you. I do a mix of flat foot and toes. Whatever feels most effecient at the time of playing. I highly recomend reading Dukamok's guide for stamina. It's helped me a lot for playing in general. I just hope it isn't blashpemy to link to ITG site. < http://www.itgfreak.com/phpBB2....k+guide >

i had the weirdest dream last night....
i dreamed that i was at chuckie cheeses with my dad and for some reason there was a Zero, an NX, and a Prex 3, but the prex 3 had a giant screen, like even bigger than DX, and the pad looked like a home version mat, except it was cut in half and in a little container on the bottom of the machine. and there was a machine that was 2 xbox 360's. O_o so my dad gave me a few 1$ bills, then i look at them and theres 6 bills: 5 $5's and a $20. i go around looking for a token machine and find none. im like "WTF WHERE ARE THEY?!" i go to the frnt counter and theres a lady there on the phone and holding some papers. i asked her for tokens but she didnt answer at all. and then i woke up.
freaky O_o and freaky how a Chuck-E-Cheeses would have NX
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 11:17 CST :: 3/03/2007
That guide's great, but he still doesn't really talk about drills. I find regular 16th-runs to be much easier to do, much less stamina-draining, and much less painful on my legs than drills are.
And I'm not bad at drills when they're not too fast (I have 96.13% on Kagami Expert, which is like 146 BPM) and I have substantial bar power. I just happen to be terrible at fast drills like at 165 BPM or higher.
And I still say Winter CZ is a 16. It's harder than IGYAML.
Posted by: Pawprint on 11:37 CST :: 3/03/2007
Oh, so now I finally get official confirmation? You never actually replied to me, ya goofball. Well, good to hear! I'm looking forward to it.
There are not exactly 220 steps. I cleared it with another guy at DQ and we got 227.
But there's a mine in there somewhere. It's stupid. Just be sure you have a full life bar and you'll get through it.
Posted by: Jason Dread on 13:13 CST :: 3/03/2007
But the mine will not go off unless you hit it. Meaning just hit the hold and you're fine.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 17:49 CST :: 3/03/2007
. Sorry man. I thought I did. ^^;; Should be some good times at the end of this month. Especialy on a fully unlocked machine. Who's coming, besides me and Ken? Any other confirmations, or did others forget like me? ^^;;
Can't wait to play LIADZ2 Full and Canon D full nm. . Anything NX for that matter. We've been playing more, so we'll be a little better then last time. (^0^)

Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 17:29 CST :: 3/05/2007
It's rare to see someone spelling "Essa Maneira" correctly
Anyway, Shake it Up is one of the best Pump songs EVER, and it's not a subjective thing, it's a fact
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 17:55 CST :: 3/05/2007
Footprints is the best song in Zero.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 18:34 CST :: 3/05/2007
You know, since this thread began I've actually started appreciating Shake it Up a little more than before. The music does nothing for me but I like how the lyrics are so "WTF is this about"-ish. And while the Crazy is kind of silly, it at least can test you on how well you can hit jumps with one foot. Still not a fan of the Nightmare, though. Oy vey.
Oh, and musically speaking, I think My Best Day is Gone is one of the best songs ever to grace the Pump machine. Even my sister, who knows almost nothing about Pump and K-Pop but is a fan of Queen and other classic/modern alternative rock groups, agrees.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 18:53 CST :: 3/05/2007
I always liked the Shake It Up song, personaly. The crappy cz and nm step's are the only thing that keep me from playing it often. Well, just the cz step's that is...I wont touch the nm with a ten foot bar. Give me Dignity or Canon D nm before that retarded crap.

It sounds better than Throw 'Em Up, that's for sure.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 17:53 CST :: 3/06/2007
Throw em up is a horrible song but the Steps are really good...
If your referring to My Best Day is gone well i think it's a really Garbage song and doesn't really into PIU..prob. one of the worst songs in PIU
and if a somebody starts chewing me out just remember ppl. have different taste in music, not everybody likes the same PIU songs.
and i have tried to like footprints and MBDIG but no can do
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 21:12 CST :: 3/06/2007
You don't appreciate searingly passionate vocals, perfectly interposed orchestral sampling, and guitar riffs that have more of a real melody than any of the modern stuff I hear on the radio these days?
Well, that's what does it for me. Every man for himself, I guess. So then, what Korean songs DO you like that have been on Pump?

well i have more but have to go to sleep................
also songs i think are garbage i'll still play the stepcharts.....a crappy song isn't going to stop me

MBDIG: nothing, haven't seen it or have a sim of it
Posted by: valius on 22:37 CST :: 3/06/2007
Hmmm... Latin, rock, metal, club songs, with a hip hop song in there. That's not too weird to me.
I guess Swing Baby and My Best Day Is Gone might just be too old-school for that list.
Footprints is kind of cheesy, so I can see why some people wouldn't like it at all.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 02:47 CST :: 3/07/2007
Wow. Mr. Larpus hard is really hard. I got like a B using 3x on it. Then I tried 2x to see if that helped and failed. I got an A w/stage break for Dignity, although I double stepped. :/ (these are all no bar) Four misses is still my best for Deja Vu. I really want to get this twisting thing down. :/
Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 10:13 CST :: 3/07/2007
It'll come with time. As you do more and more of those twisty songs, you'll start to see the patterns in them. Hell, I double-stepped Com' Back Hard once upon a time being completely oblivious to the spin.
Posted by: minib21 on 10:32 CST :: 3/07/2007
i have dignity song stuck in my head my head i keep playing the crazy mode steps, and i have chimera stuck in my head also, for some reason most of my favorite songs in pump it up are the high level songs, like witch doctor in nightmare or Final Audition 2-2 but i wish they make my friend a harder version next time and ShinjiKinomoto i mr larpus is not hard now dignity in crazy i harder but its sad i can do i can do hard nightmare songs but i still cant pass mr. larpus in freestyle mode
Posted by: Jared on 16:18 CST :: 3/07/2007
In the song "Essa Maneira" it sounds like they're singing "Essea Manera" or something like that. Um, why? Is it because it's some sort of language-vowel-pronouncing rule thingie?

Posted by: Glitch on 08:24 CST :: 3/08/2007
...just play easier nightmare songs. They didnt remove all the easy nightmare charts with nx, just look for ones that are stars or 1 skull or something. If your NX is too crowded, then by all means go back to the exceed 2 just so you get more play time, but otherwise it doesnt matter.
Should this be locked?

I usually do 4 to 5 level stars on songs becuase any higher than that I'll die!!! Well not really it's just once I do higher songs the step charts are wierd as heck! And my feet just hit any arrow!
Posted by: blue-kun on 12:53 CST :: 3/08/2007
My 2 KRW (0.0016 USD XD): First play harder Freestyle steps above 160BPM on 2x speed; that way you can become familiar with different step patterns such as crossovers. Then play slower Nightmare songs (I'd say below 115-120BPM at max) on 3x speed, then gradually work your way up from there.
Funny thing is, certain Freestyle steps are much harder than some of the basic Nightmare steps (with some being rated at frickin' SKULLS, that is, level 16+ XD), and they do share similar crazy step patterns with Nightmare songs. Of course there aren't that many of those harder FS steps, nevertheless they really are a very good learning ground. : )

Here's off topic
Vanish arrows and fake arrows are so evil. I was trying a Europe one (I think it was london) and the 3rd stage was La Code De Bonne Conduite. So many fake arrows at the jump section and I just wasted my energy hitting the fake arrows in between jumps. Still managed an S but it was annoying. The song before that was hard until I figured out the vanish arrows were either 75 or 53 jumps.

ITG generaly has fewer and shorter 16th runs, plus easier patterns. I could do Xuxa four time's no bar without getting too tired while I'll get even tired doing IGYAML cz bar four times and get winded.

so Turkey...did you really choke on a Jolt Cola? (how is that anyways?)
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 14:57 CST :: 3/22/2007
Yep, I choked on it, some came out of my nose too.
Regular Jolt Cola tastes like Pepsi but gets you more hyper than injecting pure caffeine into your veins.
The other varieties taste like crazy slurpee flavors. They're great.

Is there anybody else other than me who thinks Do You Know That -Old School- NM is a terrible chart?
Posted by: Jason Dread on 20:53 CST :: 3/23/2007
It's essentially a chart full of however many gimmicks they could cram into one chart to keep anyone from S'ing it.

FAEP 2-2 was unlocked at Easy Street today by Cpubasic
So, I tried it on hard and it has sooooooooooo many crossovers. The bpm gimmicks really surprised me >_<
I also decided to be suicidal and tried CZ, and failed miserably.

Can someone help me with the last stage of the Guatemala mission? Do you have to look at the other player's arrows or something?
Posted by: Pawprint on 22:11 CST :: 3/24/2007
I recommend 4 people for Hold The Line in Guatemala. Each one should preferrably take a red and a blue arrow.

Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 09:46 CST :: 3/25/2007
You know what you can do is stand like a crab and hit the steps like that. That way, 2 people can actually do it by themselves, if you have the arm strength that is, hehe.
But gotmilk, are you sure it was a Zero machine? Maybe they just forgot to change the title panel when they got the new mix...
Posted by: gotmilk0112 on 11:51 CST :: 3/25/2007
nope, it was the Zero interface and everything.

Found where to browse different clubs videos, ran across this. < Lee Chang - LIADZ Crazy Random Step S >. Totally insane, and only one good too!
This one is really interesting. It's a 23 minute video by Andamiro from 2000 showcasing the "Pump It Up Grand Festival". It starts out with an explanation on the game and shows how to dance while paying, then goes to footage of some freestyle routines from this festival. The stage is so epic. There's three giant arrows made of neon lights. Definitely a nice piece of Pump history. < Watch it here. >

Someone posted this comment on the Shake It Up video I uploaded to YouTube. The guy's from the Netherlands:
And I also received a message from another guy/gal/whatever that knows Victoria. He/she says that he/she has never heared Power Of Dream before, but confirms that Victoria Chalkiti is the singer. He/she Lives in Greece.
I answered to the guy, asking about where to find the OST, and that's what he/she answered:
I think the guy used a translator...
It seems that in Europe you can freely e-mail the singers and receive response from them. I'm not sure that we can do the same in America.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 23:55 CST :: 4/04/2007
That is absolutely stupid. I still have no clue how in the hell Andamiro got this song.

I FINALLY GET TO PLAY ON A REAL NX! WOOT!
Posted by: giamatti on 23:47 CST :: 4/13/2007
got questions here if anybody can answer them...
1 what's the UF in FA3 mean?
2 who's the arch of darkness? yes it indicates a person because of arch
3 how did AM got hold of NX's pop songs?
4 how come FA split up into 2 versions: house and episode?
5 what made yahpp split up with the very band that he made?
6 any ideas on the continuation of BotW 2?
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 04:56 CST :: 4/14/2007
2. I think it refers to an Arch, as in a curved shape, but I could be wrong.
3. Supposedly, Yahpp met some Chicago hiphop artists and liked what he heard, and that's the stuff featured in NX.
4. Just different styles?
5. No idea, I guess he just wanted to do his own thing.
6. Since Freevolt did BotW 2's video, and they're no longer with AM, don't hold your breath.
Posted by: Tyriku on 23:24 CST :: 4/18/2007
Will it ever be "Finished"?
EDIT: Also, what is the correct pronunciation of "Yahpp"? I say "Yap".
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 13:29 CST :: 4/19/2007
The "ah" is pronounced the same way as in... uh... *can't think of a better word* "cock".
That "Unfinished" thing is just a subtitle they added and it really doesn't mean anything.

K guys, question, in the World tour stage *guatemala I think*, You have to play "hold The Line" ... its the chart with both sides going at once... my question is, how the fuck do you do this? I got such a bad neck cramp from trying it with my friend... tips?!
Posted by: Pawprint on 22:46 CST :: 4/20/2007
I have successfully played it as part of a group of four people, each one taking a red and blue arrow. Someone one each side should be designated for the few center steps as well.

An interesting view also known as Seoul train or for me The laughing song. I never found out what is so funny besides my sad attempts at trying this song and failing miserably. Either something in the song is funny or it's just laughing at you to make you mess up. Thanks for any help I been trying to figure this out for ages.
Posted by: valius on 16:46 CST :: 4/22/2007
Moved into the random discussion...
I don't know why they were laughing so much in that video, but I do remember days when we used to think that song was hard. Most people passed Turkey March Hard Mode and didn't do that well on An Interesting View Hard Mode... although the reasons we played those song was because there were only 16 songs in Hard Mode on O.B.G.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 16:59 CST :: 4/22/2007
what happens when your in special station and the timer hits zero on a locked song?
Posted by: Jason Dread on 17:22 CST :: 4/22/2007
It will autoplay the song to the right of all the locked songs in the chair for that section you are in of Special station.
If you are hovering over the locked remixes and let the time run out, the song it will default you on is Try to B.P.M. on whatever chosen mode you have selected.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 18:10 CST :: 4/22/2007
It'll automatically choose it, you mean?
Or will it literally autoplay the song?
Posted by: Jason Dread on 18:18 CST :: 4/22/2007
Sorry, it automatically chooses it.

1. Get StepEdit under the Media DB.
2. Open up a Pump PC step folder, or create a new stepfile.
3. Click in the little boxes to drop arrows into them. Click on the side box with the BPM/delay stuff to set the BPM, starting time, and tick count of the song.
4. As Hozz says, "A stepmaker is one with his steps." Your first steps are GOING TO SUCK. Only after years and years of practice will you become a really good stepmaker. Practice is what makes the difference between Esperanza and Identity: Part 3.

So, I was playing our shiny new NX today, when it started to glitch up. Where the credit counter area is, random pictures and shti would start to appear. Im sure this glitch has been seen before. Anyway, when I entered a mod in arcade station, all the mod boxes appeared in that section of the screen. And a bunch of random boxes were scattered out randomly. Among them, where the 5x box, and the DIGNITY ARROW SKIN BOX. Im not kidding here guys, unfortunatly, I didnt have a camera, but it was intersting, none the less. Anyone explain this to me?

Try to BPM NM is also really hard (Had absolutely no idea it was one of the harder remixes). I had no idea it was a half double chart. I love it ^___^. Tried it twice last night and failed both times SB on(obviously). I'm gonna whore it out till I pass it. Thank you Skip for telling me about this.
So far I have lasted 1:17 into the song.
What are some other songs that have half double charts

How do these hidden step charts thingy work (in NX)? Are they created by some kind of glitch, or they were made by AM, but aren't unblockable or what?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 14:13 CST :: 5/04/2007
The steps were made at Nexcade. Pump's notorious for having leftover unplayable content in the hard drive or CD of the game, but through this glitch, some of the "incomplete" charts (or charts that are complete but for some reason they didn't want to include as playable) can now be played. To get it, you just choose the song to the SIDE of the song you want in the mode desired (a mode that your song does not show as having) and at the very last half-second, you quickly switch over before the game has a chance to switch the mode out. Obviously it's limited by only allowing you to attempt this based on the modes the songs to the side have available. For example, you can't search for an Another Normal on ANY song.
Also... it's very few songs that have this at all.
Posted by: Skunk on 15:05 CST :: 5/04/2007
Okay real quick, who else in PIU does metal besides Crash and Novasonic? I plan on doing all metal songs tonight.

The Beat of the War series can also be considered metal.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 16:17 CST :: 5/04/2007
The only "metal" songs in Pump are Dignity and Trash Man, to be honest. If you expand that to "rock" in general, there's a ton.
Posted by: Pawprint on 19:05 CST :: 5/04/2007
I'll try to find out for you when I get a chance. At the moment I've taken NX out of my machine and put the MK 3 board back in, so I don't know when I'll get around to it.
< HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! >
Can you blame them? Parts of I Love You Baby sound exactly like The Sign, note for note. And here's a piece of trivia I heard but never verified: when The Sign came out (in what, the mid-90's?) it became the 3rd-biggest-selling single in history.

yea , i just noticed that list of what charts has hidden steps is missing alot . and the thing at the bottom is wrong , songs with new charts that are different are Vook A-CZ not a-FS, Final Audition Episode 1 A-FS <-- not sure but it has a Another CZ which is new, Lovely Full CZ/NM and Canon-D Full NM , For You A-CZ . and Bvirus has a another FS which is just the FS chart. and im pretty sure you can get to others on kiss me.

You might be tiring yourself way too much with a regiment like that...
By the way, I moved this topic into here, since this is more of a random-PIU kind of topic that isn't "broad" enough to become its topic... since it can be answered with a one-word answer.
I also goofed with the merge of your other topic into this way... so some of the earlier posts will get messed up.

Posted by: bse523 on 15:28 CST :: 5/12/2007
Speaking of elnegro, if someone could point him to this:
I was talking with my DnB techs last night about possibly unlocking NX entirely and told them that he was doing it for the DnB up in NY. Well they told me that if he posts it on the DnB tech message board (apparently they have one) and how to do it, then it might increase the chances of our manager doing it for ours. I figure if it could work for ours, then maybe it'd work for everyones DnB!

Okay, for unlocking Dignity in EXCEED SE, what do they mean by Arcade Mode ROUNDS? Do they mean the clump of 3-4 stages you play in a normal Arcade Mode game?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 13:41 CST :: 5/13/2007
Perhaps you should all get it from the original source rather than a place that plagiarized it.
It's in Portuguese, but it's freaking obvious.

Posted by: cpubasic13 on 16:14 CST :: 5/13/2007
Yes, I believe so.
If you fail I don't think it counts. I know when I borrowed Exceed SE I played Arcade over 100 times and didn't unlock Dignity. That had fails included in the count, so it is probably successful playthroughs through all the stages.
Posted by: Thanh on 10:53 CST :: 5/15/2007
Yes, it has to be succesful with the bonus round. I beleive it was 50 rounds for Dignity. Now, how about Go? I have had Exceed for about a year now, played about 4-6 rounds per sitting, and still did not unlock that =/
It is in there right? Playing a total 175 rounds is ridiculous (or whatever the count for it was).

So um. I'm kind of on a mission to beat all the 4-skull Nightmares. Currently I have BOTW, BOTW2, PMA, Solitary 2, Phantom, and We Goin' Fly under my belt. X-Treme looks doable but it tires me out a lot, I'm not very good at songs that are 3 or 4 skulls just because of fast runs and staimna drainage. I'm currently desperately trying to pass Will o' the Wisp, but can't get any fewer than 100 misses on it.
What other ones are there that I haven't done, but could probably do? And which ones are the hardest few? From what I can see, Hyung Jin Young Go NM is absolutely ridiculous for 4 skulls, and Shake it Up is pretty widely feared too, though I've tried it and got it down to 82 misses (failed because of poor PA).
Oh, and I've also beaten LIADZ but that's probably the easiest 5-skull Nightmare besides For You, which I've decided no one could pay me to play.
Posted by: Jason Dread on 21:26 CST :: 5/16/2007
If you can pass Pump Me Amadeus Nightmare, then there is absolutely no reason you can't take down Xtream. You should be golden on that one. Also - what about Blazing, isn't that a 4 skull as well? It's probably the second hardest to pass outside of Go Jin Young Go, which I think is the hardest four skull.
You'd be surprised how easy Will O is once you start to get the turning for it down a lot more. Practice the other songs pretty hard, and once you get heavy into 5 skulls go back to Will O and most of it should just "Click". I used to have one hell of a time with it, but after playing Zero Nightmares quite a bit I went back to Will O one night when I was forced to play an X2 and came dangerously close to S'ing it despite hardly ever playing it. This may not be the same for you, but I promise it's much easier than it appears.
For You Nightmare honestly shouldn't be a 5 skull. It's more of a 2 or 3 with some randomly thrown in (and unnecessary) 5 skull elements (read: 32nd drills/runs). Go Jin Young Go I think is also slightly underrated as a four skull, so if you don't pass it right away it's not too much of a big deal. You can always go back to it later on and try it.

We gettin' furry up in here yall. Better bring a fan.
Taken at Winner's Circle in Fort Oglethorpe GA. The game was in the attract mode cause the girls were begining to die in those fursuits and didn't actually want to try playing. (They couldn't anyway, the machine is broken like woah.) I took more pictures but Mace didn't upload them (dunno why not). The song was Foxy Lady.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 15:31 CST :: 5/17/2007
Yeah, I'm not scared of that chart's difficulty or rating. I just refuse to play it because the majority of it is so incredibly stupid and doesn't follow the music at all. It's nothing but mashing your feet away to giant masses of arrows.
Hmm...I haven't tried XTreme NM in a while, but the one time I passed PMA NM was with 3x instead of 4x (which is what I always use for the Crazy). Maybe I'll try 3x on more of these Nightmares and see how I do. But 2x on Wisp is just too slow for me...
Posted by: Jason Dread on 20:06 CST :: 5/17/2007
I promise you that when you start playing For You you'll realize that it's a lot more fun than what it looks like. It's not that complex at all, and it's several players that I know of favorite Arcade Station Nightmare of NX.
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 20:13 CST :: 5/17/2007
I don't know what you're speaking about since I never played NX.
However, will there be any CZ or NM that I could possibly do if I can get a B on Dignity CZ?

My friend went play on arcade station
while selection a song between both, the COMPLETELY ACCIDENTALY trigerred the spec zone hidden chart bug... the song was faep1.. however.. it didnt have any steps..
Its kinda weird.. because faep1 has stepcharts on any mode, from normal to Nm :S

I will try that once.
Posted by: Thanh on 21:09 CST :: 5/18/2007
If you keep trying, you will eventually B Dignity on CZ. I myself currently have a C on it only cause I can't hit triples with my feet consistantly and stamina.
NM, it might take ALOT longer.
Random thought of the day - I just learned LIADZ2 Another NM is A - Cz and A - hard next to each other.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 21:39 CST :: 5/18/2007
What? It is? Huh...
I didn't know that either, so I guess that I just learned it myself. Interesting...
Also, Do It Yourself is just strange all around, but I like it. FS has some neat little BPM changes but the A - NM is hilariously fun. Although I failed it last time, that ending is freaking awesome.
What's the speed that is recommended to being able to read it? Is 4x needed or 3x good enough?
Posted by: Thanh on 21:53 CST :: 5/18/2007
1x always readable.
Posted by: Skunk on 20:53 CST :: 5/23/2007
All three acts of Honey Family's The Rap are in the games, but only two of them are selectable in the normal modes. Act 2 is hidden in the Remix Mode of Exceed, mixed with another song. Fucking weird! I thought it was Act 3 till I heard it... then I was like wtf? So why isn't the song included in a -normal- mode?

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ATTEMPT TO USE AN ADSTECH COMPOSITE VIDEO2USB ENCODER TO PLAY ANY TIMING RELATED GAMES ON CONSOLES.
Does fine with anything else like GTA, Midnight Club, and Bully, but will under no circumstances work with PIU. I missed -every single note- on Shake It Up, Mr Larpus, Beethoven's Virus, Don't Bother Me, and X-Treme all on NORMAL. The sound and video are both lagged at seperate speeds compared to the signal coming from the pad. Pretty much there is no possible way whatsoever to play PIU in this way. Damnit how come I don't own a TV in my room? This sucks. I wanna play fucking PIU...
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 14:44 CST :: 5/24/2007
Yes. And there's more to it than that.
Crazy is on the left (whose steps follow the drums in the song) and Hard is on the right (whose steps follow the guitars in the song). The song's music is altered to where all drum sounds come from the left side of the machine and all guitar sounds come from the right, completely split up. It's a gimmick as if two people are playing two different songs at the same time while still synchronized in a way.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 14:54 CST :: 5/24/2007
That is freaking awesome.
I definitely have to talk to the arcade manager about the speakers then. Its hard enough to hear songs as it is. To hear the gimmick would be damned awesome in the arcade if people caught on. I think the players would definitely notice it right away and it would just be awesome in general.

Canon full's way easier than all of those, dude. It's only "hard" for 30 seconds out of 3 minutes, and those 30 seconds have few to no twists. I compared it to Winter because the speed and steps are pretty much the same thing.

So I went to the Oaks Mall in Gainesville to get my graduation watch resized. I knew that ITG2 was there, so I was wanting to play a round of that.
Apparently... its dead. The lights come on, the screen comes on, but the computer in it is... dead. I was laughing at that so much. It was what the arcade was about, but now its fucking dead!
Decided to play the PIU machine there. It was in bad shape, as the screen was burned really bad and the pads were not as good as they should be. However, it was still playable. The sound was decent enough, and you could still make out the arrows.
Also, its Perfect Collection. Its got some ones that are not in NX.
On it I played all Freestyle. Another Truth, Pump Jump (hell yeah), N (very different FS), Creamy Skinny (I could not stop laughing), and Summer of Love (FAILED).
So... I'm updating the locations. Its playable, you can hear the songs and the arrows, and its worth playing for some classics if you are in the area. However... if you want to make a day of it, it definitly is not worth it. The NX at Easy Street is in better shape for those songs.
EDIT: Wait... it seems like someone put that up that it is playable. Last I checked someone edited it to be non-playable. Oh well... less work for me.

For old school, the only thing better than a Perfect Collection is a Prem 2 or Prex 2. Which you prefer is a matter of personal taste, but I bet most of us can agree it's one of the two.

I ordered two copies of Exceed SE online Monday. I hope they come in soon.
Even if I don't... need two copies, I prefer FS over the other difficulties. I don't like just playing HD/CZ anymore like I used to (although I still play them, I don't center around them). And the easiest option for me is getting two copies for two mats.
So... yeah, once it comes, I have to only unlock Dignity and Go and I'm set. I'd rather just unlock Go myself, but... lack of AR and such makes it kind of... hard. Oh well. It shouldn't be too long before I do that...

I did not know that Exceed SE had X mode.
I just got my two copies of it today (so I have two mats for FS and NM) and was going to do my favorite FS that I mod to hell and back, Point Break, when I decided to put in the code for X mode. Didn't show any verification, so I put in random velocity and I was laughing because X mode was on as well. I failed it, but I was like "YES! My favorite mod is on here and I didn't know it!"
Also to my surprise, I unlocked Dignity on my first round today. I borrowed it in the past and worked hard at unlocking at least Dignity before I gave it back. Unfortunately I didn't unlock it, but today I unlocked after one round. I was one round away from unlocking it when I gave it back this whole time.
Now, I want to memorize some FS charts, unlock Go, and remember song placement for Exceed SE. >_> That'll be fun.
Posted by: RaúlCamOv on 17:38 CST :: 6/04/2007
i am envious.... they're selling a Exceed SE in my location having a mat for 112 bucks...

A while ago (in this very thread; I was scouring the boards for info on missions and it was linked to from somewhere), Jason Dread posted three pics that pointed out where the secret arrows in that Essa Maneira mission are, but two of them are 404'd. Does someone have them that could repost them? I've got designs on clearing that mission at my local place. The song list on this site intrigues me with its promises of new doubles charts for great songs in Athens.

So, I'm going on a family vacation to Mexico tomorrow. Given that it's the same beach resort we went to last time, I'm probably going to be playing Pump there too.
Does anybody know if there are any general differences between Mexican Pump machines and American ones? Like, any settings in particular at all?
Posted by: WaltCip on 22:00 CST :: 6/11/2007
If you find a PREX3 that plays Black Cat NM... well, chances are, it's a Mexican machine. But I'm sure you know that.

Posted by: sikraiken on 10:33 CST :: 6/12/2007
I know you're probably joking, but I'd bet most of them have their bars. Back in July 2004 when I was down there, Exceed was new at the time, and an arcade I went to did have the bars off of the Exceed machine. All the other machines I've ever seen in Mexico though have had their bars on.

Posted by: RaúlCamOv on 12:27 CST :: 6/12/2007

Can I participate in the Nationals/actual WPF or I'll have to stick in the.. "Junior Category" ...?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 18:23 CST :: 6/12/2007
I recommend you put on make up that makes you look a year older and lie about being 18.
How would they know otherwise?
Posted by: Jason Dread on 23:58 CST :: 6/12/2007
If Canada has a Nationals, then you can compete in the regular division for women's speed. You are not restricted to only Junior's division.
Last I checked there were no clubs in Canada - so it looks like there's nothing to worry about anyways.
Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 00:39 CST :: 6/13/2007

I re-read Andamiro's rules..
Says there must be a minimum of 10 clubs per country, 15 members minimum in each.. So in other words.. 150 players minimum per country. In Canada, my guess is 5 machines. So... I doubt we'll be seeing a team Canada in a few years..
Buuut... Atleast my parents agreed that I could go see the USPF.. hopefully enter it just for fun too, if possible (of course I wouldn't be able to "win" anything, but I don't care)
And.. Sometime this year (hopefully this august or something).. I'm going to Florida; I have an aunt who works at Disney so she could prob give me a discount (DQ here I come )

When I say "sightread", it means I had never seen that chart before, anywhere. Maybe in a video where the screen isn't visible, but that's it, I don't know what the arrows look like at all.
When I say "first try with feet", it means I had played it on Stepmania before, or maybe seen videos of the stepcharts, or something like that.
I may be the only person here who actually makes that distinction, though.

anyone can help me what song i have to played before beating dignity Cz , i only gotten D score this far ( 3rd attempt) the first and second was F x_X
Posted by: WaltCip on 19:51 CST :: 7/05/2007
If you're going for technical, play Love Is A Danger Zone CZ.
If you're going for speed, play Moonlight CZ.
Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 14:09 CST :: 7/06/2007
And if you're going for technical AND speed, play Chimera CZ.

how hard are the FS charts in the Kuala lumpur mission? are they like NM level charts that like require three ppl to pass?
Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 12:21 CST :: 7/07/2007
I haven't done that mission yet, but I heard that they're relatively simple like real freestyle charts.
The only gimmick is on both It's the Hybs and Chicago Club is that you have to hit all mines AND potions. Also on the Chicago Club remix with the cut of Sam I Am, you may need two people because a bunch of potions mines and other stuff comes up on the left side while holds are everywhere on the right which could possibly kill you if you neglect it.
Someone can correct me if I'm wrong since we still haven't passed the stupid Beijiing mission...

What's the deal with people taking out the original audio of videos that they take of themselves and replacing it with MP3's of the said song? I know it's their choice, but I honestly find it annoying. One of the reasons why I enjoy watching videos of other players is to hear the musical sound of them hitting the notes. I rather watch a video with bad/medicore sound then have that file replaced with a clean MP3.
Before anyone says it, I know it's my choice wether or not to watch those videos. If I notice the music is replaced, I normaly stop watching immedialty. It saddens me when people rape their files like that.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 15:50 CST :: 7/07/2007
Hmph. Given how little is known about Pump in general, I'm surprised it was even considered for one of the choices.
Posted by: WaltCip on 16:13 CST :: 7/07/2007
All they needed to do was attach a video of someone playing Beethoven Virus HD to boost it to the top rank.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 19:49 CST :: 7/07/2007
The only reason that I do that is I have a shitty camera, and you can't hear anything, it just sounds like... how do I put this... When your cable goes out and you just get that really loud static kinda sound, that's all you can hear with my videos, you don't hear the music, or the person's feet hitting the pad. i don't know why other people do it though, probably for a reason like mine though
Posted by: bse523 on 21:24 CST :: 7/09/2007
They're more like Nightmares
I'd suggest doing both with 2 people just for added accuracy. Having played the mission, the Chicago Club Remix is best for 2 people, although still possible with only 1. Plus the stepchart kicks the normal NMs ass all over.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 21:55 CST :: 7/10/2007

Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 12:09 CST :: 7/11/2007
I have a question: How would I a Zero System from one cab to another? and the same for Exceed. Our Exceed has really good pads compared to our Zero machine, and I miss playing Zero! I want to switch the Systems so that the Zero system is in the Exceed cab, and the Exceed system is in the Zero cab! I probably wouldn't want to do this if they would actually maintain the pads! They wouldn't even tighten the screws on one of the bars that was coming loose! They said "We can't do anythig to the Dance things, we have another company do it for us"
Posted by: jonmadhash on 19:38 CST :: 7/11/2007
Don't even bother; it'll take so much time you'll most likely get caught.
You have to open up the computers inside, take out the HDD and security chip; then swap them.
Posted by: WaltCip on 19:50 CST :: 7/11/2007
Dammit I want to play Chicken Wing on DECENT pads. Everything that's on the Zero is on the NX and the other machines except for maybe one song.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 20:36 CST :: 7/11/2007
Exceed 2's pads are pretty decent... How bout I swap Zero and Exceed 2? But then again, Exceed 2 has only 1 working speaker now (The ones they fixed blew out again!)
Jon, what does the security chip look like, and where is it? And what tools is this gonna require (All I have is a screwdriver L0L) If I need more tools, I'll buy some tomorrow
How do I switch the top banners, so the managers don't get suspicious?
Posted by: sikraiken on 20:42 CST :: 7/11/2007
I don't know what board is in the Exceed machine, but you'd probably have to exchange the exceed hardware with the zero hardware. If you just swap the hard drives and security keys, Exceed will work fine but Zero probably won't run as well as it should.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 20:53 CST :: 7/11/2007
Yea... I'll just try to fix the Zero pads instead
Posted by: WaltCip on 22:13 CST :: 7/11/2007
Or you could just leave it alone since only the little kids play it anyway.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 22:19 CST :: 7/11/2007
I play it sometimes
I did that I/O test on it today, and 7 of the sensors are completely dead!
Posted by: mike_head on 16:01 CST :: 7/13/2007
what kind of file contains step charts? & which program should i use for it?
Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 01:31 CST :: 7/14/2007
It depends on what program you're using. If you want it for Stepmania or anything like that, then they are the .KSF files. A program that makes these can be found in the Media DB. But if you're talking about a regular Pump PC game (like Prex 3), then they are in .STX form. However, you'll need StepEdit in order to create anything. good luck finding it.
Posted by: jonmadhash on 08:36 CST :: 7/14/2007
The security chip is a USB dongle that hangs off;
The Zero will run fine on the Exceed Hardware; it ran fine on our unmodified MK5, no reason it won't work for you.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 19:18 CST :: 7/14/2007
So if I want to switch it to the other cab, What do I need to change? Just the Hard Drive, the security chip, and the Banner??
Posted by: sikraiken on 16:04 CST :: 7/15/2007
If it's MK3 though, it might not run that well.
Yeah Tim, that's all you would need to change.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 16:45 CST :: 7/15/2007
For tools, would I only need a screwdriver? (And a flashlight, of course)
Posted by: Skunk on 20:54 CST :: 7/15/2007
Turkey March is my current favorite song. I didn't even think it was on X2. I remember this being one of the songs in Lemmings! Does anyone know who wrote the original composition? Is there a list anywhere of classic composers that Banya\Yahpp has "covered", the original song names, and their counterparts in Pump? For example:
Beethoven - 9th Sympony = Banya - Get Up!
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 21:04 CST :: 7/15/2007
Heh, that's the question I'm sure to answer. elegie would too, but she hasn't had Internet in a while.
Turkey March is the "Rondo Alla Turca", by Mozart, from his Sonata in A Major (sorry I don't remember numbers very well). I have fond memories of playing it on the piano when I was 12. And yes, the Lemmings composition was awesome.
Posted by: Skunk on 21:07 CST :: 7/15/2007
Hey peace, can you make that list? I'm still trying to figure out a few songs and who originally did them...
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 21:31 CST :: 7/15/2007
"Bee " by Banya - "Flight of the Bumblebee", by Rimsky-Korsakov.
"Dr. M" by Banya - "Symphony No. 40 in G Minor, Movement No. 1: Allegro Molto" by Mozart.
"Bullfighter's Song" by Banya - "Toreador Song" from the opera "Carmen" by Bizet.
"Chimera" by Yahpp - "Queen of the Night" from the aria "The Magic Flute", by Mozart.
"Maria" by Banya - "Ave Maria" by Schubert.
"Csikos Post" by Banya - "Csikos Post" by Necke. (Yep, same name as the original.)
"Winter" by Banya - "Winter, Movement No. 1: Allegro Non Molto" from "The Four Seasons" by Vivaldi.
"Canon-D" by Banya - "Canon in D" by Pachelbel.
"Point Break" by Banya - "Air on the G String" by Bach.
"Beethoven Virus" by Banya - "Sonata Pathetique, Movement No. 3: Allegro" by Beethoven.
"Phantom" by Banya - a section of it is taken from "Phantom of the Opera" by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
"Moonlight" by Banya - "Moonlight Sonata, Movement No. 3: Presto Agitato" by Beethoven. (Holy crap, that piece is HARD on the piano...not unlike the Crazy is on Pump.)
"Get Up!" by Banya - finale from "Symphony No. 9" by Beethoven.
"Ugly Dee" by Banya - "Swan Lake" by Tchaikovsky.
"Can Can" by F2 - finale from "Orphaeus" (better known as The Can-Can), by Offenbach.
"Pump Me Amadeus" by Banya - "Symphony No. 25 in G Minor, Movement No. 1: Allegro Con Brio" by Mozart.
That's the rest of them, I think.

My only complainment is the fact the hard and free style stepcharts of the majority of those songs are too easy ¬.¬
Actually I miss musics like Maria, Till the End of Time, DJ Nightmare, and Swing Baby (if the crazy stepchart of this song returns to the Premiere 2 version)

wait! Most of them still do. ;;__;; AFAIK there are only four other players here that can play nm. Not much of a community here. Then again, the best players (me included) prefer to go to the arcade, play, and not be bothered with the "community", so no one besides people like me who want to get better for themselves improve.

X-Treme should never be recalled in a "remember when" moment for Pump in that way. Exceed is way too new.
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 07:02 CST :: 7/24/2007
But I still think that Exceed is already 'old enough'.

Posted by: Turkeyslam on 12:02 CST :: 7/24/2007
IMO, "old school" is defined by 1st DF up to PC/Extra, with Premiere/Prex/Rebirth/Premiere 2 pushing it. Prex 2/Premiere 3/Prex 3 could be called old-school mixes in the extreme sense... maybe. But anything from Exceed onward isn't "old school" at all.

Kim Jong Kook was part of Turbo, as far as i now. I knew about him long ago, before Lovely came out
Posted by: valius on 14:32 CST :: 7/24/2007
Yup... Kim Jong Kook has been the high-pitched voice singer for TURBO till he decided to go solo and leave TURBO.
Exceed is a 2004 mix, so it's not that old... besides, the PIU community of Exceed players and later seem to have a different focus from the community of Perfect Collection and below...
Posted by: Leccoc on 15:39 CST :: 7/24/2007
Now that I think about it........ the first song I liked was the "mode select" bg music from the Premiere. I tried searching it on a P2P program, but the only result was "Pump It Up - Beethoven Virus".

Alright... I'm getting fed up with the pad Quality at Disney Quest... An I'm gonna try fixing them (Yes, I know what to do, I've seen two different people successfully fix the sensors before, and I've tried it before), but what kind of wrench thingee do I need, and what size wrench thingee do I need? I'm gonna drop by Lowe's one day (Or probably wal*mart, it's closer and cheaper lol) and pick one up!
Posted by: bse523 on 21:42 CST :: 7/24/2007
A HUGE phillips screwdriver and a pretty big flathead screwdriver to get them open. Then turn the flathead on its side and scrape the dust between the sensor and the edge off.

Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 15:35 CST :: 7/27/2007
Okay, I'll list all of them off...
NEEDS to be fixed, I've almost every hold on that one
Sucks for drilling on, for some reason, It doesn't sense everything
Could use some fixing, It's not too bad though
Has one sensor (I think it's the bottom one) that isn't working too well
Sucks for holds
Everutime I play Moonlight nightmare, I hit this one with my hand and it never senses it, same for IGYAML nightmare
Drops holds every now and then
And also, I don't know if there's anything we can do about this, but the bars are extremely loose on NX, and everytime we tighten the screws, the bar still shakes.
Posted by: Pawprint on 20:25 CST :: 7/27/2007
What machine are we talking about again? You can't possibly mean NX.
Posted by: WaltCip on 21:55 CST :: 7/27/2007
Judging by the songs he's mentioned, Paw, it's either the NX or Zero.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 22:48 CST :: 7/27/2007
Yea, It's NX. The pads are getting really bad. Not as bad as Zero's, but they're gettin there

Posted by: cj_iwakura on 22:44 CST :: 7/28/2007
So, the Coral Square NX just changed their monitor to a widescreen LCD.
But, it's not an FX.
We'll have a picture up sooner or later, but for now, it's basically built into the top of an FX cab.
It looks official: has a huge PUMP IT UP sticker on the cabinet encasing the television.
It's a Westinghouse, so I doubt it's from AM, but who knows... but this looks like the first hybrid GX/FX I've ever seen, and it's gorgeous.
If only he can get the pads reconnected.

Posted by: the_peacemaker on 01:22 CST :: 8/09/2007
What mix do you have? Zero? NX? Exceed 2? It's probably one of those three since that's when Love Song NM came along.
If it's Zero or newer, definitely try What's Going On. It says it's a 9, but it's easier than lots of the Freestyle charts that are rated 8 or higher. NX has Sam-I-Am and Go Back, those ones shouldn't pose too much of a problem. Exceed 2 and NX have Pray, which is very easy other than a few odd jumping sections. If you have Exceed 2, try Xi Bom Bom Bom, or Flamenco. Xi Bom Bom Bom is very similar to a tricky Freestyle chart and Flamenco is nice and slow. (Though Flamenco is a much better song IMO )
Also, try We Don't Stop, U (if you have Exceed 2 or Zero--the rating is completely wrong), or One Love.

I have two machines located around me, a NX and a Exceed 2 but I'm running out of tokens to play on NX so I usually go to the Exceed 2. I tried One Love and Flamenco but the triples on the Flamenco kill me and I also tried pray but I just couldn't pass it. I guess I'll work on those songs and We Don't Stop and U. Thx.
Posted by: The W on 16:34 CST :: 8/09/2007
They should make a practice mode for PIU like in guitar hero 2 so that you can slow down the songs to practice the steps untill you get it right. Then you keep moving up the speed increments until you can do the normal speed or what ever speed multiplyier you feel most comfortable in.

i've been playing for 4 years, you just have to get use to it, it took me like 3 months to ever be able to play a song, then, now im doing level 24 nightmares and im only 4' 10"

So, who forgot to tell me that old PS/2 mats work as player 2 mats when connected into an old USB mat? Without a dongle? Sure, the controls are inverted and weird, but that's nothing a remap can't fix!
I can now play Double again with high quality mats. ALLELUIA!

Blahh.. Didn't know where to put this - in fact it belongs in an injury thread but couldn't find one and wasn't gonna start a new one. But yeah. I said injury - I was playing yesterday on the machine barefoot... Somehow I sort of hit my big toe on a bolt or side of the pad.. I yelled out "ouch!" but kept on playing.. When the song ended I looked down and discovered my foot was covered in blood ._.
I still had 1 song.. So I still kept playing (it can't hurt THAT much....) ugh.. Litterally felt ike my toe was gonna come off... So next thing you know... I'm walking barefeet with a bleeding toe all around the amusement park to find the first aid room... Wtv.. the toe's ok now... He told me to go to the hospital to get it checked but never did. It's weird. it sort of bled "inside" the toe, so my nail's prob gonna come off, and I got this long cut on top, somehow. Ok.. i'm making this way too long xD... but yeah I'll survive haha.

Drop it and get back on topic. Learn how to read the title of the topic before you post in it.
Anyway... Does anyone have any tips on how I can improve on twisting and drills??? I'm kinda in a lull right now, I'm no really improving any, and twists and drills are really my only weanesses now (Yep, I finally have enough stamina to last through 8 skull nightmares without having to stop to rest halfway through! Stamina no longer holds me back). But really, the only crap holding me back is drills and twists, the only nightmares I'm really having trouble with is LiaDZ 2 (I can't get higher than 93 misses, the beginning and end twists are really the only killers for me) Witch Doctor (I really only rack up misses on the drills), HJYGJYG (Can't get better than 60 misses and a C because of the retarded twists), and We Goin' Fly ~Remix~ (Yep, again, the twists, cand get better than a C with 52 misses) (AND I struggle on Dignity and Chimera, for obvious reasons lol)
Is there anything I can do to improve on drills and twisting?
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 23:27 CST :: 8/11/2007
I don't know how much help I might be, since I really suck at drills too, and you're a much better player than I am. But for me, I got lot better at drills by counting the beats in my head. (ONE, two, three, four, ONE, two, three, four...) That way I stay on the beat better, instead of going too fast or slow.
I used to suck at drills much worse because to me they ALL looked like they were at the Witch Doctor speed.
Posted by: CsikosVook on 13:44 CST :: 8/12/2007
Yeah, so I noticed yesterday that JTP CZ Random is now completely random. You still get one long hold, but the steps are no longer a set pattern for the hold.

Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 19:00 CST :: 8/12/2007
That's the thing. For some reason, 195 BPM 16th drills are really the only ones that I can't hit (Well... besides the 32nd drills in For You NM, I'm not worried about those though). Even if I try to count the beats in my head, I screw up. For some reason, I can do She likes Pizza NM, and pretty much Full Perfect the 16th drills in it, and I always get an S with about 10 greats on it. So 230 BPM 16th drills are easy to hit. C'sikos Post (Did I spell it right? lol) Another NM, I can hit those 16th drills perfectly (That's what, 180 BPM?), just for some reason, the Witch Doctor NM, Wi-Ex-Doc-Va CZ and NM, and Extravaganza Another NM drills are the only ones I have troule hitting (Even if I count the beats in my head, I still can never get them). Today, I tried Wi-Ex NM, and my highest combo on the drills was (i think) about 6. Why is it just the 195 BPM drills that I can't do?? (Also, i know it's a lot slower, but I can hit all the Canon-D CZ and NZ drills just fine too) Anything else that might help me??
Posted by: Koop on 19:38 CST :: 8/12/2007
While lame try getting a stepfile for it for SM,
and let TICK be on. so you can hear the beat.
It could help. Maybe.

Anyone have the Witch Doctor NM .SM file??
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 20:07 CST :: 8/12/2007
Uh...... That's IMO also... (I just felt like that after you put the codes separately in the code page)
Also, I don't think you can turn tick on. (Except that screwed newbie machine in Enter which makes a beat about 1.5 seconds or so.)
Posted by: Thanh on 12:43 CST :: 8/13/2007
I am pretty good at turning (I think) so I think I might be able to help. Practice slower stuff like We Goin Fly and LIADZ, you have to be able to read the patterns + try your very best NOT to be tempted to double step and force yourself to switch your feet/turn your body in awkwards. Bar if you have to to get used to it.
Now for stuff like LIADZ2, I am not sure what to say since the streams are really fast. I personally double step some of the steps and try to turn it. The arrows are really fast (esepcially on 4x) and you have no time at all to figure it out so I can't help there.
All that is for CZ. I am kinda icky at NM turns. I hope that helps in some way.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 18:05 CST :: 8/13/2007
For some odd reason, I have no problem at all reading, and actually doing, the twists in LiaDZ 2 CZ, but We Goin Fly, I have trouble on the twists. I don't know why, but i can hit faster twists easier than twists on slower songs...
And also, back onto the drill topic, I should probably add that the Speed of the drills doesn't really affect me. Well... what I mean is, I can hit the BotW2 CZ/NM drills easily (The drills are at the 190 BPM part of the song). Adding 5 BPM to the drills (Witch Doctor/Wi-Ex) rapes me in the ass. I'll try the counting the beats for the drills in my head thing tomorrow when I hit the arcade.
Peacemaker: When I count the beats, Do you mean to count the 16th beats... I don't believe I have the mental capacity for that lol or do I count the 8ths, or the 4ths?? I seriously think my brain would fry from trying to count 16ths at 195 BPM lol
Posted by: Skunk on 08:40 CST :: 8/14/2007
I've been trying to get an S on this one song... I dunno if I ever will, but I think I might have figured out a way to get me at least closer. The end has a weird turn made of jumps. This is the pattern from begining to end:
(Also bonus points if you know which song this is)
Now for the first half of that couldn't I jump two buttons at a time instead of trying to hit that center with one foot? I could move two feet preparing me for the step I'm about to hit. For that first section the buttons I'd actually hit with my feet would be
Then switch at the end back to one foot because the last section just moves back and forth and stops turning.
Does anyone else think this would screw me up?
Posted by: Koop on 10:49 CST :: 8/14/2007
Shit that first one I almost thought it was Slam HD but theres no Triple in it.
Are all those jumps as 8th notes? I'd try to just jump it since it is a circle jump you could just memorize/time each jump part. And since it is back to front and back you can face the screen then.
Posted by: Thanh on 10:57 CST :: 8/14/2007
Partyboy, I think you would want to count the 8ths. 16ths would be dumb to do.
P.S. 1 full year of Pump at the arcade today =D
Posted by: Skunk on 12:50 CST :: 8/14/2007
Yeah, they're all 1/8ths. Also both are the same song, the second is just where I'm going to try putting my feet during that first half (the second half is easy).
EDIT: and it's Don't Bother Me Crazy.
Posted by: Koop on 13:02 CST :: 8/14/2007
Ah the ending.
Its relatively slow song. I'd still try and jump each part And kinda do a hop-skotch kind of leg action.
< http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLn-03JBQ00 > this guy has an idea sorta.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 13:03 CST :: 8/14/2007
The 4ths, because they're the beats. There are four 16th-notes in a beat. ONE (tap-tap-tap) two (tap-tap-tap) three (tap-tap-tap) four (tap-tap-tap) ONE (tap-tap-tap) two (tap-tap-tap) three (tap-tap-tap) four (tap-tap-tap).
Those "taps" in the middle are just your feet hitting the other 16ths that are not on the beats.

Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 17:18 CST :: 8/14/2007
Well, that's the approach I took today when I played Wi-Ex-Doc-Va... I altually ended up getting a few 10+ combos on the drills I got more misses on it than I did last time, but my legs were hurting too much at the end and I pretty much let all the "Extravaganza-Super-Retarded-Stretch-Your-Ass-Out" drills right at the end go. BUt yea, I really improved on the Witch Doctor Drills. Thanks for all the help guys!!!

I just noticed something interesting. Whenever I show PIU to people they always say at first where is DDR or DDR is better. However about 90 percent of the people that I let try the game get really hooked after about 3 tries of getting used to it and they only want to play Pump now.
Posted by: The W on 17:51 CST :: 8/18/2007
When a new pump game comes out the game should change its difficulty number based on what mods you use. However this would probably only be accurate with speed mods. I could actually use a second opinion on this to help specify and improve this idea.
Posted by: valius on 00:58 CST :: 8/19/2007
Why should that be? The speed mods are not forced upon you, but rather your choice to make, and it doesn't change the chart physically, so it's you changing the difficulty of the chart on your own depending on the speed mod you choose.
I don't think that's a really good idea, since it just makes things confusing and inconsistent.
Posted by: The W on 21:38 CST :: 8/19/2007
If you download the NX emulator from www.pirateuropa.com you get part of the batman theme song. All you have to do is go to hard mode and find the song with its picture missing and there you go.

If I kept that thread open, he would probably come up with "oh i'm sorry, i was looking and now i see now that it's not 4.3 but 4.025" and post another random video to let everyone discussing about it as if it was something real.

Posted by: cpubasic13 on 22:00 CST :: 9/05/2007
I like gimmick charts.
Which is why I think Do It Yourself Another NM, For You Another FS, and Arch of Darkness CZ are awesome.
I really don't care for songs that tire me out though. Hence why the hardest songs I do are Do You Know That CZ and Monkey Fingers CZ normally. Maybe Ugly Dee NM counts but that is more challenge than tiring.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 06:22 CST :: 9/06/2007
It's always hard for me to imagine how someone could hate songs that tire them out. If my cloths aren't soaked with sweat by the end of my playing session, it feels like I didn't push myself enough and need to do something harder then before. At least thats my way of playing.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 06:31 CST :: 9/06/2007
To quote Kai, from Harvest Moon 64:
"Doesn't it feel good to work so hard that you want to collapse?"
Uhh...no, not really.
I do like songs that push my limits but I don't like ones that leave me groaning and gasping and cramping and breathing all hoarsely. I generally don't play more than three songs at 4-skulls or higher in one day. On the rare days where I actually WOULD play a ton of 4-skull Nightmares (i.e. one of the rare times I actually get to play NX), I'd maybe pass like two of them.
And if I do end up playing a 4-skull or 5-skull Nightmare chart eight times in one day just to try and pass it, I usually get progressively worse at it, and by the end of the day, I'm kind of pissed off. Which is never the feeling I want to have after I drive an hour to the nearest Pump machine. You go there to have fun, right?
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 06:50 CST :: 9/06/2007
Of course. And too me having fun is passing the hardest songs. I don't play anything I know I can't pass more then a few times, but I always try to keep playing at the max level when I play. When I know I can't move anymore and I got some good accomplishments in for the day, I can leave the arcade happy.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 08:46 CST :: 9/06/2007
So then, is it possible for you to have fun in a session even if you didn't get any new accomplishments and your muscles are throbbing anyway?
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 10:07 CST :: 9/06/2007
Of course. We all have our off days where we do far worse then the week before. It's unrealistic to expect to do better EVERY time. Even if I work myself to not moving anymore without any accomplishments, I still feel satisfied because I had fun. It's like running a marathon...it hurts during that second half when your tired and in pain, but you still go on for a reason. Maybe not the best analogy but the best I can come up with at the moment.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 11:16 CST :: 9/06/2007
Either way I'm sweating. Its just that one way I play for maybe an hour and I have to rest a while. The other I can play all day and do more.
Learned this from doing Canon-D Full CZ twice within 10-20 minutes of each other and almost felt like I was going to collapse... and I was going to be at the arcade for a few more hours too. I can do the occasional hard song but nothing that expends so much energy from me I can't do much more.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 11:42 CST :: 9/06/2007
That's understandable. I normaly don't play for more then an hour so I'm not trying to save energy for songs later. I'm trying to expend everything I have in that hour period of time. Since I mainly play at home now I just keep playing songs every 60 seconds w/o break till I can't do them anymore. If I do PMA cz, I'll do Whats Going On cz then go back to something really hard next.
When I'm at the arcade I try to go when not many people are there. If I have to wait for more then two people I get bored fast. Normaly I can switch between ITG inbetween sessions if there is a line...I just can't stay still. I don't like staying at the arcade any longer then needed.

I find the HTCP CZ gimmick to be awfully stupid AND kind of fun at the same time.
HTCP NM, however, is just plain STUPID.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 16:35 CST :: 9/06/2007
It has to be one of the Dumbest Nightmares ever. The only one I think is stupider is LGTPS. But at least LGTPS is kinda challenging at the end. HCTP NM is like, a total snooze-fest

Good God, how is this happening? "Handsome The Character Pass"??? People are misspelling ABBREVIATIONS?
If there's one community that's becoming more illiterate every day, it's the rhythm game community!

Posted by: tuttifruity32 on 19:18 CST :: 9/06/2007
Got down Yun jin young to 24 misses. I still felt like it was a bad run
and got Extravaganza down to 16 misses, 2nd try, then again, missed steps I hit... damn pads
*JYGJYG - crazy
*Extravaganza - NM
**lol... posted in wrong thread. but oh well.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 19:46 CST :: 9/06/2007
i still think HCTP CZ is dumb know what else is a stupid gimmick: FAEP1 A-NM i'm sure i'll have fun slapping the pads over and over and over again
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 01:15 CST :: 9/07/2007
Its an awesome gimmick. The speed changes are highly unneccesary and that is what makes it awesome. Its still with the song exactly and only requires you to know the song a bit. Hell even the patterns are quite simple. Its just knowing not to be fooled by the BPM changes.
Even though I get around 30+ misses each time I play it, it is quite an enjoyable chart.
Posted by: Daemonatheart on 01:15 CST :: 9/07/2007
HCTP NM is amazing and is my warm up song everyday.
Posted by: valius on 02:54 CST :: 9/07/2007
Hmmm... NX Pop in trouble for next mix?
< http://humanresistance.typepad.com/my_weblog/bring-back-dookie.html >
Yes, I saw this on BMS, but might as well put this here, so people interested in helping the cause might put in word. I don't really know what's going on with AM these days.
Posted by: Kuhazan on 03:08 CST :: 9/07/2007
its the usual Valius.... like with PREX3/Exceed/Exceed 2... they put in some music with potentially offensive content. Someone bitches... they pull it... 2 mixes later they do it again... and the cycle goes on!
Guess they're trying to find out how long it takes the American soccer mom to not find the music offensive or something... it's an Andamiro study!
And since locking songs in the menu is no longer possible I guess they've had a change of policy... if its in the game it must be played!! or something...
Posted by: Thanh on 05:40 CST :: 9/07/2007
I played Do it yourself A NM for the first time on Labor Day. Its not as easy as I thought it was gonna be D:. I ended up with a D with 40+ misses
I don't get why soccer moms get so offended over a few words in a song. There are many things far more offensive than music lyrics.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 11:25 CST :: 9/07/2007
well we if the machine is in a family fun center like chuck e. cheese or easy street then theirs a lot of soccer moms around and they think it's a "family" place and don't want to hear bad langugae and then again thiers stupid parents around
When i read that article about the NX pop songs in trouble i was devasted....Pump needs more american songs to bea little more mainstream not more K-POP
ok for the record that in my opinon so please let's not have 7+ million post on how wrong I am
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 12:41 CST :: 9/07/2007
I thought Pump wasn't mainstream and Pump was heavily focused around K-Pop...
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 13:02 CST :: 9/07/2007
it is focused on K-POP but it would be nice if it had a little more publicty so many arcade owners would buy it but K-POP and banya along won't make *Most* american audiences play they game and the only is to keep having some more american pop songs
then again theirs the whole stepchart factor as well where ppl like the 5-panel layout
I'm not saying get rid of k-pop entirely but if your gonna have lots of K-POP also have a good amount of pop songs
And if they get rid of the K-POP channel 99% of the ppl on this board would be pissed
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 15:12 CST :: 9/07/2007
Fixed for fact.
And depends on the pop songs. If it is more like the ones in NX I'll be a bit skeptical. If its a bit more like Ba Be Loo Be Ra, Join the Party, and similar songs like that, I think it would be nice, given the charts were up to par in FS.
However, its not entirely important. Pop Channel has always been the one with the fewest songs in it, and I really don't see that changing anytime.

I'm gonna play Premiere 1 tomorrow

Brazilian version? How many of those still exist over there?
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 12:30 CST :: 9/08/2007
Brazilian version. As far as I know, that's the last one here. And it's not an arcade. It's a place that makes parties for small kids, with some arcades, games, and shit. And they happen to have a P1 there.
And since my cousin's daughter is completing 2 years tomorrow... Probably I'll join the little kids and play some songs I miss...

Posted by: CorruptedOne on 10:04 CST :: 9/13/2007
Uh...the original version is from Daisuke Master, one of the members here on PH. It's included in his step collection for StepMania. That guy just hacked his Prex3 PC to get it onto it with the BGA Preview,etc...

Is that at a local arcade?
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 22:51 CST :: 9/15/2007
At the end of the video, they shouted "Easy Street". If I remember correctly, that's an arcade up in Ocala (FL)
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 23:23 CST :: 9/15/2007
correct..tell him what he won johnny!
Posted by: Matador on 12:04 CST :: 9/16/2007
Ok so.. back on the days when i started playing pump on April 2004, i noticed sometimes there was this guy who went to the aracde just to watch us play ( not exactly me, i mean my group of friends heh) Lets call this "Y place"
So well.. this happened at least once a week in a 6 months range time..
So then we moved and played on other place for 1 whole yea.. we wasnt there but ohn well.. ( this was from 2004 eding to 2005 eding)
After that, we moved to other place where we played for half a year, then we moved to " X place) and we stayed there since the day of today, all my crew did and all the new pumpers goes here heh..
Anyway, when we moved on t that place, we met some guys who played since 2002 and such
and guess what? the guy who used to go to Y place, was also on X place.. watching us play..
Later on as well, one of those 2001 players told me that guy actually did watched them since 2001 ._.
Hell, that guy saw me growing up ( Not exactly on pump, but on myself lol, when i started playing i was 15, now im 18 almost 19.. i didnt have a decent height on that time, luckily i dont know what happened on this late 4 years but i got a decent height now heh)
Anyway... we and some friends are planning to " Break the ice" and try to talk to him.. Its going to be REALLY REALLY weird.. talking a few words after seeing him from... 6 years without saying nothing? /: ( 3 for me, 6 for those older players..)
Just wow .-.
PD: SOrry for the english x.x

Does anybody know how to make sense out of the final run in Witch Doctor #1 NM? No matter how I look at it, I don't understand how to do it without double-stepping.
Posted by: WaltCip on 19:55 CST :: 9/17/2007
Why is Fire's BPM considered 123 in World Tour and a 133 on the PH Songlist, when it's clearly a 136?
Posted by: arvhin_757 on 03:36 CST :: 9/18/2007

Because you haven't looked hard enough. There are several Exceed 2 collections out there. Hit some Brazillian sites.

also... Pawprint, can you specify the sites you are talking about?
Posted by: Pawprint on 21:20 CST :: 9/18/2007
Unfortunately it's been a while since I downloaded it so I don't exactly remember. Let me see if I can dig anything up.
Okay, add "gabaum" to your search and see if that helps.

Posted by: arvhin_757 on 21:58 CST :: 9/18/2007
okay...i looked all over...
i didn't see any Pump BGA's and steps.
One last request...
can you just upload it to Download Center?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 10:54 CST :: 9/20/2007
Stop spamming. No, we don't have this shit to share with you. Look and ask on another site.
And yes, Pawprint has an NX version at home, but he can't share it with you. You know why? Because he owns an arcade machine and plays it on that.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 13:44 CST :: 9/20/2007
I would. But I don't want to.
There are sites that have the crap you're looking for. I and other PH members are not going waste our time uploading it for you when it's out there and easy to find.
Posted by: arvhin_757 on 01:04 CST :: 9/23/2007
Maybe this would work:
1.Footprints of My Friend "Maria"
2.Bee Feeling Deja Vu
3.Starian In One Night
4.Gotta Be Kidding With All My Love For "U"
5.Dr. M's Turkey March in the Christmas Roll
1.Kpop Exceed Dance Remix : "Pray" "Starian" "Don't Bother Me"
2.Som2 Remix : "Pray" "Deja Vu"
3.Banya Remix the 2nd : "Dr. M" "Turkey March" "Bee"
4.Station Outbreak : "Get Up" "U" "Essa Maneira"
5.Modern Remix : "Lovething" "Let's Get The Party Started" "N"
6.Ultimate Pump It Up Music Remix : "Valenti" "Go" "Deja Vu" "Le Code De Bonne Coduite" "Eres Para Mi" "Conga" "Beethoven Virus" "Winter" "Pump Me Amadeus"
^^V peace maybe this will be a worthy topic along
Posted by: arvhin_757 on 01:11 CST :: 9/23/2007
can you add songs for pump it up arcade versions?
i mean ... iwatched a video 2 girls playing pump exceed w/ let's get the party started....so maybe it is
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 01:14 CST :: 9/23/2007
Let's Get the Party Started is in Exceed.
And yes. It is possible to add songs in.
Posted by: miraisaki on 10:57 CST :: 9/23/2007
Shake It Up full is just about the greatest pump it up song ever, followed by Born To Be Alive full. The short edited version of HJYGJYG must die and be replaced by a REAL full version with all the opening radio transitions in a stepchart.
Posted by: bse523 on 10:59 CST :: 9/23/2007
Um simply put:
"No" for all of it.
Posted by: miraisaki on 11:01 CST :: 9/23/2007
All I want for Xmas is just about the most underrated pump song ever.

It's aslo the gayest pump song ever.

Go back to your Chimera. Rolling Christmas is fucking awesome.
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 11:46 CST :: 9/23/2007
It's good, but not that impressive. And Chimera sucks compared with other classics Yahpp made before.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 12:30 CST :: 9/23/2007
I have lost all respect for you.
Posted by: miraisaki on 12:59 CST :: 9/23/2007
Too bad we don't all share the same opinion you do Partyboy. And cpubasic13, I wasn't talking about Rolling Christmas. People actually like that song. I'm talking about All I want for Xmas, the song where there's a red and green dancing robot, and pretty much sounds like one of those bubble gum type songs that Aqua would've made.
"Alll ayyy want for Christmas is my baybayyy...." That song.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 13:04 CST :: 9/23/2007
You win this thread.
Next topic: I think AM killed "U inside my Dim Memory" with the gay ass steps they gave to the full version. Those steps suck balls compared to the arcade version.
Posted by: WaltCip on 13:47 CST :: 9/23/2007
Andamiro didn't kill it. They hired a single stepmaker to do all of the steps for the NX full version songs (I'm not sure who he is). The steps were clearly choreographed but they seemed too generic (Hold The Line is a good example). As a follow up, compare Handsome Character That Pass NM to Do You Know That NM; you'll find that the steps seem similar. This is because they hired stepmakers with their own styles to do different sets of steps for NX.
What I want to know is, what sick mind came up with Chimera CZ? Was it Yahpp himself?
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 13:53 CST :: 9/23/2007
even though turkeyslam is not gonna agree with me i say pump jump fits the cake
walti belive it was either bong lea or ignol who made it cuz according to the Yahpp interview they made the hardest steps in the game
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 14:04 CST :: 9/23/2007
I don't see that many similarities...
And Sick mind? I think you mean "Genius"
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 14:09 CST :: 9/23/2007
do you have some sort of extreme fetish for chimera CZ? lol
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 14:11 CST :: 9/23/2007
Oops, thought it was Rolling Christmas. My bad. Even so, it is not bad.
No. No. Pump Jump is awesome.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 14:14 CST :: 9/23/2007
Chimera CZ? Nah. As for Chimera NM...
But I still think Chimera CZ is a Genius of a chart. It flows well with the rhythm, It's 100% on beat, and still with all this, manages to be challenging, yet passable. That in my eyes if one hell of a chart.
And Chimera NM... I'd marry that fucking chart if I had the opportunity.
Posted by: WaltCip on 14:16 CST :: 9/23/2007
Genius is Beethoven Virus HD/FS, Swing Baby Half Double, Unforgettable Memory FS, or (drool) Lazenca NM.
16th chains at 210 BPM with 8th-note streams of hands and freezes so stupid that you have to cheat them by holding all five panels down? That's more "contortionist" than genius.
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 14:16 CST :: 9/23/2007
Genius? Chimera steps look more like a fan-made chart. Yahpp would've done better if he put Emerald Sword or Phoenix as a boss song.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 14:19 CST :: 9/23/2007
I don't do that. I don't even use hands on them.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 14:21 CST :: 9/23/2007
Chimera is a boss song. That is all it is to me. It does not fit in with my regular playing selection.
More songs are making their way into my playing though, mostly FS and Normal charts (One Night Normal for instance).
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 14:45 CST :: 9/23/2007
That makes me want it even more. If I wasn't taken, I'd be screwing that chart up the
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 16:43 CST :: 9/23/2007
screw that more like a KB smashing simfile that most ppl make for stepmania
Posted by: Thanh on 20:32 CST :: 9/23/2007
I just watched the V chart for HCTP NM and it looks excellent. I am defiantely giving it a try when I play next time.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 21:18 CST :: 9/23/2007
i wasen't implying you and chimera needs a an A-CZ chart and they need to get rid of that stupid A-NM chart they have and redo it for one person and not be complete bullshit
yes chimera NM falls under the keyboard smashing simfile

Chimera a boss song?? Yes, just impossible... to pass by one person in NM

Inol was the Step Team Manager for NX. And he created alot (not all) of the hardest stuff in there.

Ugly Dee is a hell of a lot more fun then Chimera. Slow, graceful, and fun steps overall.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 15:48 CST :: 9/24/2007
can i thank him for FAep1 A-NM?
and ugly dee is so much better than chimera hands down
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 16:43 CST :: 9/24/2007
I don't see what makes Ugly Dee's steps "graceful". The only Pump stepchart I've ever considered to be "graceful" was Solitary Hard.
Chimera owns my soul.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 16:51 CST :: 9/24/2007
You've probably not seen or played the FS steps.

Posted by: the_peacemaker on 20:31 CST :: 9/24/2007

this is scary what if yahpp started remixing video game music
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 21:49 CST :: 9/24/2007
Not just a game. A single song in the entire game.
And Yahpp can't do remixes of video games unless Andamiro has the licensing from that said company to do it. It won't happen.

What do you mean, "inverting your pads"? Like Mirror mode? Or something else?
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 12:53 CST :: 9/25/2007
no like inverting the pads on a pump machine like what Jboy, Jhonny abd just about almost every mexican did so they can pass chimera better. In WPF, there won't be any inverted pads on the pump machines is their really hurting themeselves
Posted by: LLMax00 on 13:03 CST :: 9/25/2007
I really hope this is all stupid sarcasm.
If not, someone oughta explain how the hell switching the printed arrows on the panels inwards makes one do better on a song.

Posted by: bse523 on 13:09 CST :: 9/25/2007
Having done this myself, it doesn't do jack shit. Keep pads clean and the sensors well maintained does everything.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 13:27 CST :: 9/25/2007
Making a post that says this just pretty much proves that you're desperate to add posts. And there was never an NX "home version" released. And nobody cares what you have.
I did that to the pads at DQ once... It didn't make any of us play better... It just seemed cool to have them pointing the wrong way... How is that cheating??
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 13:28 CST :: 9/25/2007
for home:it dosen't matter about inverted pads it's your home
on tournaments: yea it's a big deal
ever since NX came out i've seen more ppl invert their pads and their excuse was to get the freezes better on chimera, in a international pump tourney like WPF, I doubt they will spend time to invert their pads hell i bet in MPF they didn't invert their pads
Posted by: bse523 on 13:37 CST :: 9/25/2007
Then those people are completely retarded if they think it helps...WHICH IT DOES NOT.
Posted by: Pawprint on 14:28 CST :: 9/25/2007
The panels (not pads; pads are the entire unit: each Pump machine has two pads) are pieces of FLAT ACRYLLIC. Turning them around DOES NOTHING.
Humanity is doomed unless we shock the gene pool....
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 14:35 CST :: 9/25/2007
If they knew that, then why did they even bother trying?...
Posted by: bse523 on 15:26 CST :: 9/25/2007
Because they knew how obsessed moonlight is with Chimera and think that he'll believe anything they say as long as Chimera's included.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 15:52 CST :: 9/25/2007
1.the ppl from Dq wanted to invert their pads and were arguing about it
2. Jboy said in his chimera video that pad modding was helping him, so the only logical conclusion was he inverted
and excuse me for voicing my own opinion jesus fucking chirst
Posted by: WaltCip on 15:57 CST :: 9/25/2007
When someone can spell "opinion" correctly but spells Christ "chirst", that tends to raise a few eyebrows. ;)
Jboy's good, but he can get a bit caught up in his own air of awesomeness. The "BossRush IV" Video he put on YouTube is a pretty good example of that.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 16:00 CST :: 9/25/2007
Ok wow but excuse me for being a "kinesthetic learner"
anyway i wanna see jboy take on neo in chinera cz that should be a good match
Posted by: The W on 16:27 CST :: 9/25/2007
Sorry to interrupt the conversation but, does anyone know where to get cheap but good metal pump dance pads that work for every system including the computer that comes with a bar because I can't find anything less than 230 and most of them don't come with a bar.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 16:30 CST :: 9/25/2007
1. We did invert them back in July
2. That did not help with anything
3. We haven't argued about this since the beginning of August
4. Our pads are no longer inverted, and we're all still as good as we were before and during the time period in which they were inverted.
Take it from me, it doesn't help with shit.
Another Topic: I haven't played Pump in about a month and a half. Since the last time I played pump, we have unlocked Fire Full. I want to play Fire Full NM right when I get back. How hard is the NM? And is it easy to No-Bar?

ROFL God you're a moron!
How the hell can switching where the arrow on the pad points to help a pad out?
MODDING = Cardboard modding, stuff like that.
THINK MAN THINK.
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 17:08 CST :: 9/25/2007
Mexicans just play on inverted pads because their managers don't give a damn about correctness, or they are just too stupid to notice that those arrows have an order. The same thing happens here in one or two arcades...
Anyway, nothing happens if the panels are inverted. Period.

Thank you for clearing that up for me in a mature way BTW what are the BPM changings in Nassiance 2-NM
Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 10:34 CST :: 9/26/2007
Wow, that was the most pointless conversation across three pages of threads that I have ever seen.
As for your other question moonlight, I'm assuming the Another NM. And that I have no idea; it's a lot that's for sure.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 15:16 CST :: 9/26/2007
I'm pretty sure it jumps up to 262 BPM near the end. (2 times the normal speed)
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 16:44 CST :: 9/26/2007
You are correct.
Posted by: Thanh on 04:25 CST :: 9/28/2007
I think I hit a wall in PIU
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 04:29 CST :: 9/28/2007
You know, you could always practice some more freestyle instead of trying to improve your LIADZ 2 scores.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 15:42 CST :: 9/28/2007
Yea, because everytime Thanh tries LiaDZ 2 Freestyle, he falls off the pad!
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 17:43 CST :: 9/28/2007
That's why Windforce always plays with bar...
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 18:26 CST :: 9/28/2007
That's why Lee Chang beat Windforce at KPF...
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 18:34 CST :: 9/28/2007
But I'd like to see him playing blindfolded WITHOUT bar.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 18:36 CST :: 9/28/2007
True. Does Windforce have like, every Nightmare memorized? I've seen him S Phantom NM and LiaDZ NM Non-Step... and I've heard that he S'd a few others blindfolded as well...
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 18:19 CST :: 9/29/2007
Help me. Okay, the last time I played Pump was around August 15th. And tomorrow, I finally get to play again. But. What songs should I do to get myself back into playing again? I'm obviously not gonna start off with Chimera NM again, It'll probably be months before I'll be able to pass it again. So, yea, what songs should I start getting warmed back up with?
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 20:09 CST :: 9/29/2007
Something like FA3.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 20:17 CST :: 9/29/2007
Arcade, or Another?
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 20:53 CST :: 9/29/2007
Arcade. Not so easy, but not so hard. Perfect starting for people who train harder.
Posted by: Flamer101 on 21:00 CST :: 9/30/2007
Winter/bee for drills
LIADZ2 HD for crossover refreshment
Monkey fingers for balance
Moonlight for ES because it's an amazing song and you don't need an A.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 21:37 CST :: 9/30/2007
Soo. I took Kurenai's advice, playing FA3 first. I got really tired during that weird twist part in the middle, and almost passed out. Damn, I somehow got really out of shape in the month and a half I took off. Grr. Anyone got any advice on how I can get back in shape? I know I didn't get worse at Pump, I could do everything fine, I just got extremely tired, faster than usual.
Example. I got a 550 combo on FAEP 2-1 A NM, which my best before today was a 300 combo, and right around that 550th step, I had to stop to breathe.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 23:01 CST :: 9/30/2007
Make sure you do some kind of cardio exercise during the time your not playing pump? I stay fairly active and I always seem to improve even if I go a month without playing Pump. In fact sometimes I improve without playing for long periods. Although I do play IIDX , DDR, and Guitar Freaks as well so playing some form of rythm game helps keep you into it.
Edit- I re-read your post and you said you were doing well until you had to breath...thats probably your biggest problem right there! You need to keep a constant check on yourself. I know it may seem hard, but when you feel like a song is being too much for you think why is it so hard. If you realize your not breathing...breath. I notice a lot of people are out of breath because of that. Plus if you don't breath your body doesn't get the air it needs and your muscles will tighten up. So yeah...learn to breath in and out while playing. Try to avoid holding it even when your doing those hellish 16ths@200bpm.
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 01:01 CST :: 10/01/2007
If you haven't been playing, of course you would get tired. But if you keep this rhythm, you'll get used to this and your stamina will increase.

Okay, I don't speak Spanish and the only understanding I got from that was its similarity to Portuguese (which I know)... but that was fucking hilarious regardless. I understood most of it. Anyway, someone really needs to get that thing subtitled for everyone who only knows English.

I posted it like two pages ago.
Anyway, this guy did other videos like < this one >.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 09:21 CST :: 10/12/2007
I saw that too.
I didn't understand as much as the last one (still understood at least half of it), but hearing him call Pumpers hijos de puta just makes me chuckle like a little kid.
The stuff about Koreans eating dogs and getting radiation from North Korean nukes was funny as shit.
EDIT: oh, and at 2:38 or so... about those sons of bitches who smoke those fucking cigarettes while you're playing. That is FUNNY. Hijos de puta.. no tiene consideracion!
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 09:34 CST :: 10/12/2007
ok i watched the video and i understand about 95% what he is saying and it's fucking funny...that i almost got kicked out of the computer lab:p anyway, if i knew how to sub stuff i could do it but someone gots to tell
srsly this is some funny shit
and BTW the guy in video is from spain, not from an hsipanic country
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 09:43 CST :: 10/12/2007
He is Mexican - See the video about "pumpers asquerosos" at 01:50, when he advises people to take vacations in places like Guadalajara and Veracruz "que son ciudades muy bonitas de nuestro pais", instead going to Korea. Also, he talks about Wero's asslickers.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 17:36 CST :: 10/12/2007
funny he sounds like he's from spain
also in the same video he says about ppl wanting to play pump to impress girls ROFL he calls them dumbasses
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 20:01 CST :: 10/12/2007
That "documentary" voice isn't his voice. It's a program.
But that voice makes the video even more funny
Posted by: Ledline on 20:03 CST :: 10/12/2007
my Brazillian friend that lives here in Dallas, says that back in Sao Paulo; there were alot of people who played to try and get girls. And sometimes/alot it would work.
but this is just from memory

Which happens quite often in places where there are female pumpers.

It does work if you can freestyle well for girls that have no knowledge of PIU. As for the steppers, it may attract girls that understand PIU.

haha they JUST put the NX Mode and Under Attack codes on piugame.com
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 06:19 CST :: 10/17/2007
Shit. Too bad that now that they're admitting those codes' existence, there wasn't anything else they added...
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 07:56 CST :: 10/17/2007
It probably means that there aren't other codes avaliable at NX, like 5/6X, etc.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 21:02 CST :: 10/17/2007
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 01:25 CST :: 10/18/2007
There's no reason they shouldn't make available a code for flash and everything else that's in world tour. But... they probably won't do it.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 10:43 CST :: 10/18/2007
I just wish all the noteskins were available, but I guess that isn't happening in NX. Maybe next mix it will have a few more...
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 10:46 CST :: 10/18/2007
They might as well have EVERYTHING that's in NX's World Tour that isn't already given to us (mods, skins) as additional unlocks for the next game's missions to where every mission will unlock something. THAT would make things cool.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 15:47 CST :: 10/18/2007
Yeah, that would be awesome. That'd mean I would have to update the code listing I put on the front of the machine though, as that'd be a huge freaking list to remember.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 16:16 CST :: 10/18/2007
Or you could just print the handy dandy codes page here at PH.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 18:08 CST :: 10/18/2007
That's... what I did already. The sheet is small and taped right above the token slot right when the GX starts to slant. Its for the other noteskins and the mods they don't display on the actual cabinent... except for under attack due to that not being known months ago.

something that really grinds my gears in this forum how ppl bash for not liking "old school pump songs" especially the ones on the premiere 2 and below, just because most ppl like them dosen't mean that every pump player like
I understand that those songs bring back memories but that's not excuse to flame anyone because they don't like a popular song
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 12:42 CST :: 10/19/2007
Do you have a reason to hate the songs other than that many others like the songs?
Posted by: WaltCip on 12:46 CST :: 10/19/2007
Bash? I don't recall seeing any old-school players bash the new-school types for not liking Swing Baby or Sad Salsa...
Now new-schoolers bashing old-schoolers, on the other hand...
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 13:11 CST :: 10/19/2007
It's easy not to give a crap considering he didn't enjoy them back in the day like we did. There's no nostalgia for something you never experienced.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 14:17 CST :: 10/19/2007
musical taste, the problem is lines like these
Me: i hate that song My best day day is gone and no particular reason
some random person or PH members: GTFO n00b YOU PIECE OF SHIT GO FUCK YOURSELF, YOU SUCK DON'T KNOW THE MEANING OF PUMP IT UP
srsly that many ppl love those old school songs but still no reason hate over a song
Know on the other hand, if this were to happen
Me: the new pump mixes are awesome and the old ones are pieces of shit
know THAT is an insult and just asking to be flamed
Posted by: Koop on 16:58 CST :: 10/19/2007

Hey, check this out. Alextucompa made < a sequel of the "pumpers asquerosos" vid. >
He now talks about the guys who steal others's credits, the freestylers who practice outside the location, and the beasts who hit the pad very hard to score a triple step.

HELL YEAH! Another one of those. Excellent.
Posted by: Thanh on 15:27 CST :: 10/26/2007
Does hitting the pad harder make it easier to hit triple steps?
Posted by: miraisaki on 18:22 CST :: 10/26/2007
usually no. I miss completely each time. I noticed that you have to learn how to do some funky move with your feet where you arch the center of it upward, keeping the heel down and curling the toes as far down as possible; the heels will hit the center and the toes will hit the other 2 arrows. Totally dumb, but most people do it nowadays, and some people do Final Audition 1 Another that way.

CB Mass = Dynamic Duo + 1
Whistle came before Go Back anyway.

I'm seriously pissed off right now. Our DnB machine had to be completely reset because it was taking 5 swipes of the card to register one credit. When they tried switching it in the operator menu, it went right back to that setting. So they had to reset EVERYTHING. So all the world tour and everything we had unlocked, GONE. And they won't let us hack it.
Posted by: Thanh on 07:40 CST :: 10/28/2007
After playing anything on world tour that takes more than one person once, I would never want to play it again due to how much money it eats up.
Something that came to my mind, at WPF when they count, is it "Set, Su, Hana Pump?"

What's Goin' On (A) NM
Posted by: Arturo on 09:38 CST :: 10/28/2007
More like "Set, dul [pronounced similar to "dool".....I always think of "dual" since that's also related to the number '2'], hana, Pump!" .....meaning, "Three, two, one, Pump!"

there was one in the groove national tournament. ever. i was there.
that said las vegas is such a horribly shitty city. everything is dirty and nobody cares how they act because they're all tourists that'll be gone in a few days. the first thing i saw when i got off the plane was a bum urinating on the ground in the airport parking garage. not to mention you can still smoke indoors there so any place you go to smells and you can't avoid second hand smoke.
it should be in seattle because we just had the world cyber games finals here last month.

Really? Just one? Are you sure? I'm sorta friends with Dave Pappas, who got I think 3rd or 4th place nationally, and he wrote about an ITG national tournament twice on his xanga. Maybe he was talking about the same one? I don't know. You're probably right. I don't care enough about ITG to know.

Posted by: bse523 on 19:18 CST :: 11/07/2007
People are just afraid of change. They think Kyle Ward is taking over Pump and they immediately hate him for no reason. Seriously, this is the kind of attitude that makes ITG players want to stay away from pump. They've hated the stepcharts they saw 4-5 months ago EVEN THOUGH THE GAME WAS STILL IN BETA STAGE.
All I'd say is give it a shot if you get the chance to, THEN if you don't like it, you'd at least have some input why aside from OMG KILL KYLE HE'S TAKING OVER PUMP!!!
Posted by: coolestofthecool15 on 19:34 CST :: 11/07/2007
I'm gonna have to agree with Landon on this one. Pro definitely doe NOT mean Kyle Ward is taking over Pump in any way. It was basically an innovative thing that Andamiro wanted to try. I don't think it is really gonna have much of an impact on Pump itself, this coming from someone who has played it before. Even so, you don't have to try the game. Starting off on DDR and switching to Pump, I felt like I should at least try it once before making any opinions about the game. Now that I played it, I still think I like NX better even with some of the old revivals (Hello, Dance With Me) being on Pro. Personally, I am not a big fan on Kyle Ward's music. I like a couple of his songs, Utopia being one of them, but, in my opinion, they tend to be very similar with one another. This is why I like Pump because of the variety of music that it has. But if you also like ITG's music and personally love Pro, then that's fine with me.
Oh yeah, and Marathons are fun to watch.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 19:38 CST :: 11/07/2007
While I won't argue with you here, do note there's more to things than what's posted on the internet. There are reports of Nexcade feeling very threatened by Pro's existence as a competitor and Pump's future beyond NX2 is shrouded in uncertainty. Don't ask for my source because I won't give it to you as I've been asked not to - and yes, these are nothing but rumors (albeit very reliable ones). YES, there IS a threat here. A large one. These fears are far from unfounded.
NX2 is already picking up a lot of stuff from ITG3/Pro because of the influence of Pro in PIU, -especially- if that roll thing is true. This isn't the biggest issue or anything, nor is the inclusion of several Pro songs, but it's a big start in proving that this "separate entity" is not quite that when it come to its influence on the series.
Let me just say one more thing to get you thinking. Andamiro is a company that seeks to make profits with as little work as possible. This Pro deal is a godsend to them as they practically have to do nothing at all yet still rake in money. On the other hand, Nexcade is infinitely more of a liability to them and much, much, much more expensive to manage. Yahpp/Nexcade's views on Pump are a total and polar opposite of Andamiro's. I'm not going to say much else other than that. It's not exactly like I'm hiding anything, but there's most definitely reasons to worry. I've said pretty much everything that can be said regarding that.
Regarding hating on a beta.... ugh. I've already expressed my views on that ad infinitum. I'll pass on doing it again.
Posted by: bse523 on 19:53 CST :: 11/07/2007
I know what you're speaking about regarding Nexcade turkey, and it's all understandable. But it is just as much AM's fault for being cheap like this than anything. Maybe they both want to stick it to Konami who knows. This is was Kyle and co. wanting to continue to do something they loved to do but were forced to stop by the SUEnami. I guess I just don't see it as a reason to hate the game blindly. We don't know what is going to happen in the future and maybe there's the possibility that it'll be something most of the community (both ITG/Pump) can enjoy.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 19:59 CST :: 11/07/2007
To those who didn't get my point in the post I just made, I came up with a good paraphrasing of it:
NX2/Nexcade = expensive licensing, large investments, more time consumed in the game's development, greater chance of market loss
Pro/K. Ward = free money for Andamiro while they sit with their thumbs in their asses and go back to focus on gambling machines to make their true profits
If you were a company with little focus left in catering to the fans and given an essentially free ride to making large sums of money on a series that's never been largely profitable to you - which would YOU choose?
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 21:26 CST :: 11/07/2007
I don't like it and I've not stepped foot on one.
The music in it really doesn't suit me well in a Pump setup and even the songs I liked in ITG began to be repetitive here due to... well, just going stale overall. The stepcharts for some of the songs really don't appeal to me, with the CZ charts looking like they cater the more skilled players only and being really similar to their ITG counterparts. The interface also gets me and Progressive just screams WinDEU and only WinDEU, and while yes he does make some good courses the courses in ITG weren't that complicated save for Driven, and I liked that aspect.
Then there is the whole replacing other PIU mixes that I really don't like. If it was its own seperate entitiy and we got it I'd not mind. However, due to circumstances if we were at all going to get it it'd replace NX, which I'd still in fact play for two more years.
Just everyone needs to chill about the whole debacle I think. If you hate Pro don't go in every thread going "PRO SUCKS" and even if you do have to say you don't like it at least back it up with something reasonable.
Sorry, my two cents, even though you probably weren't directing it at me.
Anyway, I think we all know anyway that Andamiro is greedy. I mean, they did try to make more money by producing and selling ITG2 cabinets too, which wasn't even at all related to Pump at that time. Plus they making gambling games that will sell because you have to take a risk with those anyway.

Great stuff. Kudos to you for a good post.
Posted by: bse523 on 21:32 CST :: 11/07/2007
No actually CPU, we were saying the exact same thing. I think it's fine to dislike a game after you've played it and experienced it.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 21:35 CST :: 11/07/2007
If I'm ever on a road trip and near one I'll most definitely stop to play it, but nothing changes the fact that in a rhythm video game, there's little else to "experience" once you've seen the steps, heard the music, watched the BGAs, sampled the interface, and witnessed the complete package, all of which you can do with all the videos that are out there on Youtube.
Zero and NX were in the Youtube era and were exactly that way for me.
Posted by: bse523 on 21:53 CST :: 11/07/2007
Overall yes. But most of the time stepcharts look worse on video than when you play them. Last year we were saying it was all impossible and within weeks people were passing chimera no problem. But I get the point yet just don't think it's the same as actually playing.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 01:31 CST :: 11/08/2007
Well, do note the fact that most casual players aren't Chimera whores. I'm certainly not one of them.
Posted by: valius on 02:29 CST :: 11/08/2007
Regarding Pro vs. Nexcade... shouldn't it be mentioned that the Pro team is on AM's payroll, so it's still an investment for them? The price of Pro cabinets themselves don't support the fact that Pro is cheap, since it seems that AM must be trying to get back something on their investment in the Pro team... of course, I could have the story wrong, but... it does not seem like the Pro team based here in the USA has formed an independent company or anything like that, but rather that they are all part of AM's US dept. If that's the correct story, then AM must still pay the team here, so they're really not saving much by pushing the development of Pro.
Even if AM of Korea is not in direct management, they must still PAY for the overseas management who handles the financial affairs of the Pro team, etc., etc. In truth, the local team is probably CHEAPER to manage, since you don't have to hire the extra emloyees on the other side of the world for the management in addition to paying the development team.
This is all pure speculation, so maybe someone has the correct story... for now, it just seems like the Pro songs are in PIU regular series as a way of advertisement for Pro... or perhaps because of the tastes of the developers?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 03:06 CST :: 11/08/2007
Their payroll is a negligible investment compared to the costs of managing Nexcade with its more complex game design, larger group of paid people working on the game, and the oh-so-expensive batch of Korean licenses they demand to put in each Pump game. I'm also not entirely sure whether or not the Pro people ARE on a payroll for their project.
There's no questioning which is a cheaper group of people to hire to work on a Pump mix, though.

She sounds pretty good live. I wish she released more than 1 Korean album. I really really like her voice.
Posted by: valius on 00:54 CST :: 11/09/2007
The Pro team might object to the more complex design bit, and the engine Pro obviously also took lines of codes to make and developers being paid to do it. Pro itself has licenses (ok probably cheap ones), and the team must still be paid in some way, along with the differences in wages to accomodate different countries, etc., etc.
Anyway, the one thing though is that, if AM was as cheap as it would be, why haven't they discarded licensing altogether? If AM truly wanted to save themselves money, they could have made the Banya team do all of the music in the game with very only a few licenses. I mean AM has made some weird or stupid decisions, but even they know that changing the product formula too much is never good for sales. Obviously if AM wanted to pay less, they could've cut down on their own local turf without having to manage a team in another country (that's more expensive, if you don't consider Korean licenses), dealing with communication, etc.
I feel like the selling prices of the current arcade mixes and the past history of AM doesn't really match what's being said... but maybe AM really is stupid enough to change the forumla drastically. Anyway, I feel like we don't have too much to worry about yet, and hopefully I'm right.
Anyway, what happened to Som2 anyway? She sings in Japanese now or something?
Posted by: Kuhazan on 01:38 CST :: 11/09/2007
If they did go the cheap route and have a game with a majority of music made for the game it'd be a lot like DDR. I also don't think they'll have an American team handle the main series... developing a new game engine without using code from the previous game would be a pain... yes there is stepmania but it would take a lot of effort to get it to do what the existing Pump engine already does... some are ok with throwing out alternate BPM changes for each mode, tick count for holds and things like Battle Station and World Tour but quite honestly they give the game replay value. Without that whats there to separate Pump from the competition besides Freestyle and the ability to play double on one credit without pestering the op to change the settings? And if less players return after they've completed every song that means an upgrade probably won't be getting sold next year...
On the other hand the step makers of PRO 2 could abuse those lift arrows in the SM4 engine to make it unique.
Posted by: miraisaki on 19:51 CST :: 11/09/2007
What are lift arrows? I've never heard of that mod.

Lift arrows are arrows you have to lift your feet up when they appear to receive a judgement for them.

hello i was being random i didn't even know what the hell the mod was for
Posted by: Kuhazan on 00:15 CST :: 11/10/2007
its not a mod, it's a type of arrow... just like say a mine or a heart item in Pump NX... there instead of hitting the step require your foot to be on the panel before it hits the indicator and then you lift your foot when it passes over the indicator... you can lay them down in Stepmania by holding CTRL + the number of the panel you want to add one to.

Off topic of an off topic on topic thread.../mini rant
I think it's been over a month since I've been to the arcade. Seems to be a bad habit of mine lately, only going monthly. If it wasn't for the hour bus ride I would go more often, but thankfully I have my home pad. But its sad not to be able to play nm at all for so long. Even though I'm not much of a social person, it would be nice to see some of the regular players if they still are around, who are few. :/ The community in Tallahassee is pretty weak. If we had a stronger community we would probably get the upgrades, but I guess its not really profitable for them anymore. Its a shame. . Just wanted to vent. Thanks for listening (aka: reading ). end rant/

Here I am, in what might be classified in the "neutral" Pump zone in Florida; Alachua, FL. 50 minutes from the nearest working PIU machine, and a half hour more from Orlando, the NX Capital of the United States. On the other hand, if I go north in the other direction, it'll be a LONG drive before I can reach Tallahassee.

One of these days I want to find the time to come down south again. It was fun going down to Pawprints place in January. It's just hard for me to come up with the time and money to do so. :/ I know he's offered many times, and it seems like I avoid the topic, it's just hard since I get most of my hours from work on weekends, so if I don't work, I don't get paid, which makes trips out of town that much more expensive then what one would think. >.<
Heh. I know that was a bit OT from your your post, since your saying it could be worse, but I was just saying it seemed like you guys have a nice community down further south. Thats all.

I just watched some Jboy videos.
PartyBoy, I think you're just about at Jboy's level (or at least Jason's). Next year, go to the USPF... trust me.
Edit: Of all the people to hit Post #1000...
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 17:43 CST :: 11/13/2007
Depends on where in Alachua. If its Gainesville it will take a good 35 minutes to an hour to even reach Ocala due to traffic on the highway, especially around this time of the year. If its anywhere else in Alachua its longer.
Its usually not worth it to go do Pump with that. DQ is a better alternative for Waltcip considering he is going to have to pay for gas as it is. If he gets a yearly pass he has free access to the machines that are free. Cheaper in the long run, even if he were to do it less often.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 18:02 CST :: 11/13/2007
You really think I'm up there with JBoy and Dread? I'm still completely intimidated by them.
When you say I should go next year, should I go for Male Speed, or Juniors?
EDIT: It's shit like this that intimidates me. I can just barely touch 100 misses WITH bar.
Posted by: WaltCip on 18:47 CST :: 11/13/2007
Well obviously if you do Male Speed (non-juniors), you'll have to deal with Jason, Johnny, JBoy (heh, J-Gang), and Six Silver Strings.
Do juniors and you might very well stand out in your field.
Posted by: DaNcEfReEk! on 19:02 CST :: 11/14/2007

Posted by: Koop on 22:05 CST :: 11/17/2007
Seo Tai-ji (Jeong Hyeon-cheol 정현철, born on February 21, 1972) is a legendary South Korean singer and musician. He is one of the most prominent and influential cultural icons in Korea. The level of his popularity in Korea during the 1990s were comparable to that of Michael Jackson in the mid-1980s.
His songs sometimes tap into things that the Korean Government totally opposed and sometimes would ban off his songs. (For example Classroom Ideals is all about the fallacy of the School System of Korea)

You should switch when the timer is going from 1 to 0. In other words, let it hit 1 and then wait for (literally) a split-second and switch.

Just because he's younger than J-Boy and isn't as good doesn't mean he's at J-Boy's level. I'm not dissing him; he's a good player and all, but it's completely ridiculous to say he's on J-Boy's level, especially with the logic being that he's younger, but worse. What determines if you're on *so and so*'s level at Pump is skill, and skill alone.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 07:14 CST :: 11/20/2007
I ran into a friend that plays at the arcade on the way back home. Not sure if this is true, but he said the manager might replace our dying DX machine with a new one. Not sure how reliable his information is but I will attempt to go to the arcade more often if it is true. I'm not holding my breath, he has been right about a lot of stuff, like when we got new mixes and stuff, but the SuperNova machine never happened here, which I'm glad didn't fall through.
Anyways, I might be playing Pump more. I think thats random enough to post here. I'm just crossing my fingers that their getting NX2, but I guess I'll settle for NX.

Someone help me. I'm getting really bad at pump. Some Examples:
1. I've S'd IGYAML NM before. Now, I can't get less than 10 misses on it anymore.
2. I've passed Witch Doctor NM No-Bar with a D, and gotten a C with 74 misses with bar. Now, I can't pass it No-Bar, and I can't get anything less than 100 misses with bar.
3. I can no longer pass Chimera NM. Record was D with 249 misses. Now, I can't touch 300 misses.
4. I now find Dignity NM very tiring. I can no longer get below 110 misses like I could before.
5. A few days ago, I got 1 miss on HiBi NM. About 4 days after that, I got 29 misses on it, and I was out of breath at the end of it.
What the hell is happening to PartyBoy???

Posted by: the_peacemaker on 23:12 CST :: 11/27/2007
No, actually, that happens all the time, on any skill level. No matter what level you're at, you just don't break any new records for a while and you can't do the best of what you used to. You even get more tired than you used to.
That can happen if you've been playing day after day nonstop recently. If you have, give it a break for a week. You'll be less frustrated and more focused the next time you pick it up.
If you HAVEN'T been playing a lot recently, play some easier songs for a while instead. Restore your concentration and stamina slowly.
Posted by: Swing_On_Crazy1016 on 14:45 CST :: 11/28/2007
Thats what happend with me. I used to get to play every week on fri or sat and I was alot better then I am right now. I've been dropped down to only being able to play once every three to four weeks now and I cant pass alot of the songs I used to be able to. Though I'm slowly working on improving again.

Doesn't it annoy you when you lay off of Pump for a couple of days (2-5) and you come back playing way off your game? I can't stand it
I remeber in the summer i used to play pump minimum twice a week. But then when school started I could only play on the weekends where I had to wait because of the other players lined up. And once I got up on the pads my body wouldn't work with me
But yeah I agree with most people here Do It Yourself BEST SONG EVER!!!!

Dude, 2-5 days off from pump in a week isn't much time off. Lately, I'm lucky if i get to play more than once a month.
My game has gone downhill a lot. I went from 1 miss on HiBi NM down to 29 misses. I really need to hit the arcades around here a little more if I wanna go to nationals next year.
Posted by: CorruptedOne on 10:55 CST :: 12/01/2007
You're gonna be in Juniors so you shouldn't worry too much of the competition. I mean seriously, if I'm going to the Nats next year, then I need to start playing a whole lot more.

These are some things you probably didn't know about NX (BGA's).
1. In BullFighter's Song, the "advertisements" on the ring say Nexcade and AndamiroAllStars.
2. In Bullfighter's Song, the people in the crowd are avatars on piugame.com
3. In Gun Rock, in the 3rd set of words that appear in the middle says "Smoke and Bastards".
4. In U Inside My Dim Memory, the name sliding from right to left say "You Inside My Blurr--", which is probably the old name to the song.
5. In U Inside My Dim Memory, the stage that the boxer fights on has a the NX logo in the center of the stage.
6. In The HYBS, there is real street video mixed with animated speakers and Capoeira(A Brazilian Mixed Martial Arts style of fighting), and a McDonalds in the video(License please), AND the letters say "NIGGAZ" went rotating from center
7. ALL the Chicago songs have to to with their corresponding stereotype- The HYBS is fighting(Capoeira), Bust Back with car-jacking and sort, Throw 'em up with fighting, and We goin' fly with fighting.

The words were "You Inside My Blurry Memory" which is just another way of translating the title. As long as it retains the general meaning of the original word, it can even be translated as "You Inside My Fuzzy Memory"

Can I just say here...
I'm sorry for not being as outspoken with my opinions about NX2 at this point, but frankly, it's been THREE MONTHS since the last time I got to play Pump at all, and I've been stuck with nothing but the crappiest ITG2 crapocab machine in the East Coast for all this time and it really isn't fun anymore. Suffice to say, I'm absolutely gagging for any form of Pump whatsoever, even if I just go back to playing the trusty old Zero machine in Milpitas Golfland one more time.
NX2 will get here when it gets here. To me, that's all that matters.
Posted by: valius on 16:02 CST :: 12/13/2007
At worst, we can always make the 1.5 hr. drive to Davis and play on THEIR great machine. The GX there is well-maintained, and they always get the latest mix.
NX2 will probably pop up there first, then D&B, MAYBE MGL, MAYBE Tilt in San Francisco.
Posted by: bse523 on 14:41 CST :: 12/14/2007
and I'd rather play on a GX. I'm cringing at the fact I'm most likely going to have to play NX2 on a DX. Yuck.

I'll trade with you as long as your DX isn't falling apart.
I hate GXs. I love DXs.
Posted by: bse523 on 13:19 CST :: 12/15/2007
It's not falling apart that bad. The pads blow, there's burn-in from the PREX logo screen, and the grey arrows are burned in (makes Freedom a bit easier).

A fast question. Can Can is theorically a 14 in CZ something that I don't believe at all (Because I play a lot of 14s and this is way harder). What do you think it would be a good ranking for it? And if i'm mistaken tell me what the hell goes on with that chart because I'm astonished.
Posted by: WaltCip on 08:19 CST :: 12/16/2007
Can Can is practically a level 12 CZ with a very steep learning curve. It takes a long time to pass, but after much practice, it becomes easier to A than Mr. Larpus CZ. You just have to know when to twist, and when to double-step.
Can Can NM's easily a level 16.
Posted by: Koop on 09:29 CST :: 12/16/2007
Old songs got very weird ratings from transitioning from Prex 3 to Exceed. Alot of them really never changed past Exceed's bizarre rating system.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 10:48 CST :: 12/16/2007
I'd give the Crazy an 11. Nothing more, nothing less.
The Nightmare, eh, maybe a 14 or 15.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 17:17 CST :: 12/16/2007
Today I was in the special station and right after I played DIY A-NM I went along the songwheel and we noticed Dr. M A-CZ was unlocked. Apparently we hit a time unlock just today, so half of the game is unlocked now (which unlocked Beethoven Virus A, Dr M A, KPop Dance, and Chicago Club along with more World Tour).
I am happy I FINALLY got to play the Lazenca NM and the Point Break NM.

As late as this is, I saw the Athens Loner chart was requested a long time ago and no one ever videoed it. I am not very sure where to put it but I guess here would be good in case anyone still wants to see it.
Posted by: davyn on 14:55 CST :: 12/17/2007
It looks like the Korean and international versions of NX2 have different language title cards...do you think we'll be able to get both versions of the files to decrypt for the title server? It's interesting to see how the two can differ, and technically it wouldn't be complete without them...

it's cuz of the rapping part and the spin at the end in the chorus
i never play it anymore, the charts don't do anything for me and I S'ed the NM and CZ
Posted by: CorruptedOne on 11:59 CST :: 12/27/2007
I dislike So CZ and I will never play that song ever again. I'm walking across the street one day in Flushing and all I hear people singing, etc... is Tell Me! I got so irritated because it's not that great of a song but practically every Korean person I know loves the song Tell Me. It's not bad, but it's annoying when EVERYONE is talking about, singing, etc... I wish it was like that for Pump. Like everyone on the planet would know that game and it would get even more popular than the first time Guitar Hero was released, well, you know what I mean!
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 13:00 CST :: 12/27/2007
So Andamiro took advantage of this and put Tell Me in the game.
No wonder everyone plays it over there.

Oh My! was popular at the time when they released the Zero. I still wonder why it is a hidden songs but it's no suprise that AM put another popular song into the game (refering to Tell Me of course).

This isn't the right topic to discuss this.
On a side note, I really like the Lazenca Athens chart. Its fucking awesome still, even if I can't pass the requirements.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 19:43 CST :: 12/28/2007
I beg to differ this is and off topic thread and it's pointless to make a whole thread asking about how to get unbanned from the IRC channel (it would just clutter the forums, IMO)
going with what partyboy says
Theirs probably a 99% chance that the Athens Lazenca chart won't be in arcade station even if the song is their.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 19:49 CST :: 12/28/2007
well, the Mistake NM chart from the Athens mission is in NX2's arcade station... so theres a possibility for the Lazenca NM chart... right?

Posted by: cpubasic13 on 20:39 CST :: 12/28/2007
1) Its a Pump thread for discussion of things that don't require a thread. IRC channel is not related.
2) You don't get unbanned.
And I'll love NX2 if they make that chart in it somewhere.

alright derail time sorry to do this, I really don't like doing this
1. yes i know on the IRC channel your not supposed to talk about pump, I did once, got forgivien, and then got banned (for reasons i know about)
2. No, your not seeing it the way I see it. why in the world would i make an entire thread stating "how can moonlight129 be unbanned, please i am really desperate" Good God, i would sound like i'm begging to get back on and i would look pathetic. I asked the question in here becuase it would just be a worthless thread and i was just curious to ask. I mean, it's just an IRC channel, it's not like it's the end of the world if i never get unbanned.
Plus i got on the channel today twice and then the third time banned, somebody must have noticed
back on track
I REALLY hope that chart of Hi-BI A-NM is from worldmax (i'm just going to go out on a limb and say yes)

Posted by: valius on 14:44 CST :: 12/29/2007
Because our supporter MP83 lives there and can much more readily coordinate...
the reason why there was a messup last time was that...
Andamiro, the mall, and the City of Schaumburg failed to communicate in a timely matter
But apparently Chicago is too far and not worth it for people to come :\
Sorry, just a little bitter that people are looking down on such an awesome city.
Posted by: Noodles on 14:53 CST :: 12/29/2007
I was hoping NC again.
if MP83 can move it there, that would be nice. Chicago is not really so close compared to other places. NC is perfect. Most players are on the East coast, that is, players that WANT to go (ME!)

Haha, is that your reason? Jealousy? You know you can always move. I noticed your at Florida right now. Florida is like one of the best places to live in if you want to play Pump. They've got Easy Street, DQ, all the Disney property, etc... New York still lacks Pump clubs, crews, tourneys.

That's not true, by the way.
Posted by: bse523 on 15:23 CST :: 12/30/2007
Chicago's already in the front running for next year. Don't count on it being moved.
And JD, yea that was the main reason. The city didn't tell us everything they needed in time so we had to go back to plan B.
And it'd be pointless to talk about USPF rules since they're probably going to be changed somehow next year.

Bar wears you down? Wow... it helps me conserve energy... odd...
Posted by: Arturo on 12:27 CST :: 12/31/2007
At least, I think that's the case. Rarely a bar user myself.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 12:38 CST :: 12/31/2007
I depend on the bar on every song. I'm not that short (5'10") and I always have to sit/crouch on the bar when I have to do something really fast. I can stand up a little more if it's not quite as fast (i.e. Hi-Bi), but if it's like Blazing or faster, then I have to lock myself in a good position before I can even HOPE to move that fast.
I just really don't have any energy or stamina. My legs are just really weak. Even to this date I can't run the mile in any less than 8 minutes.
Posted by: CorruptedOne on 19:44 CST :: 12/31/2007
I have lots of energy and stamina, as everyone that knows me tells me. (I've stayed up two nights in a row once WiiSports tennis and everyone kept asking me if I was tired and I said no.) Yeah I guess it makes sense that my height affects.
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 22:09 CST :: 12/31/2007
I did have problems with bars when I was little. I thought that bars were there for display. Then again, this is like going back to 2nd DF so.... yeah.

my question has been answered thank you
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 03:12 CST :: 1/03/2008
Something I've noticed - it looks like AM is trying to give every mix a non-revived exclusive song.
Exceed 2 had Raw (I guess)...
Zero had Jump.
NX had 2006 Love Song.
Now that I think about it, that's alright... too bad that they dropped the best Banyas from Zero and NX (in my opinion) to do so, though...
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 10:12 CST :: 1/03/2008
As much as I'd love that(it'd be good too, since we've got like five Pump machines in this county alone), it's not fair to the rest of the country to hold a national tournament in the country's basement.
Posted by: Koop on 12:00 CST :: 1/03/2008
All bets in Caprice being NX2's cut song.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 12:04 CST :: 1/03/2008
My money's on Money. Yes.
Jump was the only Korean-language BanYa from Zero and 2006 Love Song was one of two (or three if you count Fire). Money's the only one this time around other than Monkey Fingers 2.
Posted by: Koop on 12:09 CST :: 1/03/2008
That'd be too bad.
I like Money.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 12:11 CST :: 1/03/2008
It probably won't be. I should stop trying to use human logic when trying to describe Andamiro's actions.
Considering most of what they do is anything but logical.
I changed my mind. I think next mix it'll be Beethoven Virus.
EDIT: wait, that doesn't make sense. Oh well.

NX3 will delete all old songs and pull a REBIRTH syndrome.

That would probably happen, I mean, after NX2 removing 4 of the NX's New Tunes, I don't know.
Posted by: Koop on 12:24 CST :: 1/03/2008
No no. I mean EVERY old song. The only songs on the machine will be NX3 exclusives.
Rebirth did this. Not premiere 2 mind you, but the Korean Rebirth.
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 16:08 CST :: 1/03/2008
Rebirth was one of the mixes that I never enjoyed except the fact that it had Division (I think?) and Half Double.
Heck, I think this was one of the factors that decreased popularity of PIU in Korea.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 17:51 CST :: 1/03/2008
Shake It Up NM is not a 4 skull. It should be higher than that. 7 Skull, IMO. If Bee NM is a 6 skull, and I can A it, and I can only get a B on Shake It Up NM, it should be a fucking 7 skull. Damn AM. Listen to PartyBoy. He knows what he's talkin about. Shake It Up NM = either 6 or 7 Skull, not 4, kthnx.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 18:25 CST :: 1/03/2008
Um, no. I can pass Shake it Up NM. That means it's easy. And I actually have a lower miss count on it than almost any of the other 4-skull Nightmares (only Phantom, Solitary 2, and BOTW are less).
Besides, I know some people who can A it but can barely pass Bee NM. It's all about how much stamina you actually have. Or how much you're actually willing to move to Shake it Up. Bee is exhausting but Shake it Up is just stupid.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 18:28 CST :: 1/03/2008
I barely have any at all. I'm a slightly overweight un-athletic (besides pump) teenager who eats cake 3 times a day.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 18:32 CST :: 1/03/2008
And I can't do X-Treme NM without having chest pains and wheezing. I've only passed it once with over 100 misses.
Shake it Up simply doesn't take much effort, except the willpower to want to go through the whole song.

what the hell was the "exculsive pump stage?"
Posted by: Koop on 22:02 CST :: 1/03/2008
Its clearly one of a kind for pump. I guess
Posted by: bse523 on 11:34 CST :: 1/04/2008
Just like Prem 2 was a one-of-a-kind mix.
Posted by: Arturo on 12:00 CST :: 1/04/2008
"....and master the exclusive Pump stage!" or something like that was also plastered over Premiere 1 cabs.
I also used to think this Pump stage was some special bonus song or level that you could earn by playing well, or something. But nothing along those lines ever happened for anyone, so I quickly learned it MUST be referring to the dance floor (the "stage"). Pump's stage is different, or exclusive to the game.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 12:10 CST :: 1/04/2008
Unfortunately the Pump version uses very little of the very detailed Zigeunerweisen piece.
O2Jam does a good job at it, except the remix kind of sucks:

It's selling enough. There will be a sequel. And these NX2 delays are dangerous because when Pro 2 comes out, NX2 sales will come to a standstill. Andamiro needs to push this game out NOW.

Oh Wow so it was successful, i guess most of the ITG/Pump players liked it
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 00:23 CST :: 1/08/2008
ITG players liked it. Most of the machines are in locations where DDR and ITG are dominant, while it's not seen in most Pump-dominant locations. However, when it came out, NX FX machines essentially stopped completely. NX2 will do it to Pro, and Pro 2 will do it to NX2. Hence why I want NX2 to have the longest life possible out there before Pro kills its sales.

Posted by: Noodles on 17:42 CST :: 1/08/2008
Damn, I never knew NX stopped selling because of Pro.
And isn't NX the most bought PIU game yet?
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 18:12 CST :: 1/08/2008
Yea... and Disney is responsible for about 50% of NX's sales. lol
Posted by: bse523 on 19:06 CST :: 1/09/2008
ROFL @ Boycott Pro. That's real rich. I try to boycott stupidity like this but I've come to realize there's too much of it thus making it hard to do. Makes me want to just play it more. And I highly doubt an extra week or two would make all the difference in the world of sales. I'd be willing to bet that everyone that wants it is going to buy it well before Pro 2 is even officially announced. Keep drinking that AM Kool-Aid guys.
And I seriously didn't know turkey had sales information for every arcade distributor.
And Koop, I thought I heard something like that, couldn't put my finger on it. But yea it was odd.
Posted by: valius on 19:28 CST :: 1/09/2008
It should be noted that machine locations are not always reported here in PumpHaven, since some areas just don't even know that PumpHaven exists.
I might've seen 1-2 places in the BMS thread that aren't in our DB yet, and I've just received word of two Exceed 2s in two CECs that haven't been noted here yet.
However, I don't deny that AM needs to differentiate Pro from its main series more, since they are directly competing against each other rather than maintaining some sort of balance of power. Boycotting isn't the way, but more suggestions to AM to differentiate the games is a much better idea. There will be less confusion for arcade managers, and an increased likeliness for PIU main series machines appearing. (See: the Pro thread in Music and Gaming Zone for more Pro-related things, and what the general consensus is)
And... calling people stupid is NEVER an acceptable way to correct someone. If you're correcting someone, a step-by-step kind of thing suffices, there's no need to be ad hominem, since it lowers the credibility of your arguments.
Posted by: Koop on 20:22 CST :: 1/09/2008
And is Chopstix a Classical remix too? I never heard this song in ITG/PRO before...
I hate to be retarded about it, but i can't really put a finger to what it is. *o*
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 00:11 CST :: 1/10/2008
if you hate everybody on this site and think their stupid then why do you come here and post? and if you like Pro so much why don't you go to the Pro forums? IMO it's pointless to visit a forum where about 99% of the ppl hate you, and then precced to argue with them. If you think were all idiots, i don't see the point in coming here
It's like going to a communist Rally and being the only person in favorite of Democracy. You stick out like a sore thumb and everybody hates and you hate them and on top of that you protest. and on top of that, the location of the Rally is in a country where all of the people is in favor of communism
it's like walking into a bear trap
off topic: after hearing the Pro songs on NX2, IMO, they sound too repeative but Dance all night sucks and groovin motion does nothing for me
Posted by: valius on 17:11 CST :: 1/10/2008
I think people are misunderstanding bse's position... there are people who enjoy both PIU regular and Pro, and I do believe bse is one of those people. He has been helping on the PIU scene (helped to moderate nationals) for a while already, so it's clear he supports the main game and is interested in promoting PIU.
Unfortunately, lots of anti-Pro sentiment (myself partially included, so that people don't think that I'm placing the blame on every one else) was thrown around and is still being thrown around here, and some of it unjustly or blindly. bse likes Pro and feels the need to defend it from uncalled for or foolish critique, so I understand why he's so annoyed and feeling the need to be sarcastic all the time.
[arrogance]The thing is... for PIU players, THIS place is the place for real PIU main discussion in English, with the only other place being pumpcore (but you really need to know people there to truly enjoy the place). Can you blame people for not wanting to leave?[/arrogance]
However, having said all that, I do NOT approve of the way he's been forming his arguments... and I do not need to repeat what I said earlier.
But please... you can dislike a game... but stuff like attacking Kyle Ward the PERSON or going in arms over a game... is really crazy. (Kyle Ward the PERSON is a great guy who makes an effort to LISTEN to his own community. Even if I don't love every single piece of music he's composed, I can understand why people support him so much.)
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 17:16 CST :: 1/10/2008
Chopstix? You never heard that song played on a piano by a noob?
It was only featured on Pro as far as I remember, and yes it is classical remix.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 17:23 CST :: 1/10/2008
BSE's situation is what I believe to be one of the problems with the internet: You can't tell weather a person is acting, being sarcastic,serious, or joking and it leads to arugments, flames wars, then E-drama. I'm just surprised he visits PH with all this hatred going for him, and i'm sure he likes Pro and PIU regular, but it just talking about Pro is here is not the best place to do and maybe it would be better to talk about it on the pro forums
nothing wrong with kyle ward, i mean i like most of his songs ( I like Energizer) but that happens to many artist
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 17:31 CST :: 1/10/2008
He visits PH because he still wants to discuss and have his fun time (i.e. sarcasm)
I agree with moonlight. If you met a person face-to-face, you can easily tell that the person is joking, using sarcasm, or being serious. Almost everyone can figure that out.
However, online seems to be a problem because they only show words that the person said. No emotions, no facial expressions (unless you use a smilie), no voice tone.
BSE's situation is everywhere around the internet. Most of the times people here takes his comment seriously (that means you Turkey) and starts a flame war. However, after realizing that what BSE was mostly doing, I saw things in a different way. He's just trying to have fun with people, not making them angry. What makes him angry though is when someone replies negatively. That's what ticks him off, for all he did was write sarcastically.
On Kyle Ward situation.... He is a good musician with some pretty good songs that I tend to enjoy. However, people start to hate him (more like pump haven) because he tried to change the perspective of PIU.
Whatever happens in Pro2, I believe that Kyle listened very nicely and made really good changes. Hopefully, it will be one of the games that I would enjoy to play.
Posted by: Noodles on 17:43 CST :: 1/10/2008
Thats not the problem.
He can't take somebody else's opinion.
I just simply said "Boycott PRO!", after what Turkeyslam said (shortly after NX2's release, a PRO2 comes out, something that Nexcade, Freevolt,etc. didnt make.) If you even say anything from neutral and below about pro, bse snaps.
Yes, I will take the blame for the Kyle Ward thing, but, like snm and moonlight said, you can't see if somebody is joking around, using sarcasm, and being serious over the internet.
To tell you the truth, I don't hate pro (interface and kyle ward's side of it). Pro is cool, you can up SM files to play, and multiple songs to choose from. The only reason I say this stuff about pro is, well, think: What comes after NX2? PRO2. We all know it. Like turkeyslam said, AM will eventually lay pump into the hands of well, americans. Then everything gets all screwy.
I'm sorry about metioning pro. Bse is a cool guy, he voices his opinion, and says it straight up. He states his belief in pump, both piu original and pro. But the only problem we see is, like SNM and moonlight said, sarcasm is a hard thing to annote over the internet.

Back on topic:
Now, Monkey Fingers was based on Korean nursery rhyme (i stated this before). I thought they were doing a big change in Monkey Fingers 2. However, they had the same concept.
It's just funny that they based this on a nursery rhyme that I sung everyday as a kid in Korea.
Posted by: Noodles on 18:03 CST :: 1/10/2008
Yea, I am disappointed.
I thought MF2 was going to be different, like new music in teh background and everything, but just a regular remix.
What a disappointment.
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 18:36 CST :: 1/10/2008
Actually, I kind of like the remix, the tune wise.
However, lyric wasn't that original at all, especially listening to Monkey Fingers Full. I can even resite the lyric right now, in Korean or English, even maybe with english translation.
But I'm still playing MF2
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 18:49 CST :: 1/10/2008
they used a lil jon sample in the GST of nice to meet you. what the fuck
Posted by: bse523 on 18:58 CST :: 1/10/2008
I still like both. This should be obvious. And that might be the issue. NOONE can tell sarcasm and honestly I've been known to take lots of things way too seriously (ask anyone that knows me in person). But most of the shit I say is just that, shit. Maybe I do get attacked not for speaking my mind but how I do it. I'm straight up (as if that's not apparent) but honestly also quite fucked up in the head. And I'm not kidding.
Chopstix - old n00b piano tune yes.
Quick quiz - what OLD OLD pump song actually was taken from a Chinese lullaby?
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 19:18 CST :: 1/10/2008
That I don't know sir. I'm guessing Creamy. heh.
Also, I don't blame you anymore for getting into flame wars. Some people just hate you for your style of writing, while I'm still cool with it. I know you hate some people and write that. I still don't mind because you're stating your opinion. It might cause flame war in this form however.
I've seen you getting attacked by turkey recent times, and I actually feel sorry for you. Just because you made some sarcastic comments here and there.
Honestly, I found you as one of the worst members here, attacking other people. However, after realizing that you were using sarcasm, you're one of pretty cool people here. It's just that some hates you by taking you too seriously.
Posted by: bse523 on 21:59 CST :: 1/10/2008
Some of it's sarcasm, some of it's not. And you're wrong.
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 22:01 CST :: 1/10/2008
To be honest, I don't know any song that's related to Chinese or anything that crap. And I played every version of PIU except the International Versions. hmm.....

It's Black Cat. An old friend told me his mom used to sing it to him when he was small.
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 22:23 CST :: 1/10/2008
Did you just say Chinese?
They based the song on those kid songs that everyone knew about. I'm not sure if it started in China, but I am 100% that Black Cat was inspired by (guess what...) korean nursery rhymes or somewhat those types.

It's no Chinese nursery rhyme I've ever heard of... I thought it was based on a Korean one?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 04:06 CST :: 1/11/2008
Sarcasm is difficult to pick up on the internet. Outright bullying and negativity is not hard to detect. That's all I'm going to say about your insightful "sarcasm".
I'm not going to say a word about what Noodles has said in this thread because he does nothing but illogical and fanboyish whining.
1) PH Locations DB info.
2) Info from other locations where Pump machines are reported (Bemanistyle, ITGfreak, and elsewhere). I add anything I see from these sites to the DB here.
3) pumpituppro.com location info.
4) the most important part - first-hand confirmation from people who are very much aware of the franchise's sales. People from Andamiro and people who work with Andamiro.
5) Someone showed me this comment by YeehawMcKickass:
You should know by now that I don't make "facts" up out of thin air when raising arguments relating to known information rather than opinion.
Prior to Pro's release, NX machines were consistently and rapidly popping up in our locations database. Since then, as for NX FX's in particular, there's been ONE and this apparently was not a brand new location but rather one that's been there for some time. It's clearly evident how strong the effect of Pro's release was in changing sales in the US.
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 06:17 CST :: 1/11/2008
"I thought it was based on a Korean one?"
Yes, it is based on a Korean one.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 08:00 CST :: 1/11/2008
This is something I've found interesting. From what I've seen on Youtube, the international version of NX2 STILL has Korean title screens for many of the NX2 songs... no "alternate English version" at all, like there's always been.
That's pretty cool. I don't mind it at all... hell, everything looks cool in Korean, if you ask me.
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 10:13 CST :: 1/11/2008
Actual international version or Korean version imported to Mexico? Because the 2nd option isn't so improbable.

Fast questiom: Do you like Monkey fingers? And do you like it enough so as to think Monkey Fingers 2 was really not superflous?
I hate it and I have only seen it being played once and because of the chart stupidity.
So, waht do you think?
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 17:45 CST :: 1/11/2008
I like the songs in general, not the charts.

Don't make lists. With Excel it takes me a mere few minutes to do what I did with the NX page. I'll do them, but those lists do NOT belong in the main article. It's too huge already. They would only be appropriate on individual game pages.

And that NX2 mouse cursor, could you make it a little smaller? its like, 10 times the size of my regular cursor, and its just not like, user friendly, IMO. The size of would be like, perfect. I would do it, but i have no clue how to edit a .ANI image.
Posted by: sang321 on 10:06 CST :: 1/20/2008
um...just wondering, is 8,000,000 a high score on an NX pump machine? I just was looking at it and was wondering how it compares to other people..
Posted by: arturocrazy on 12:33 CST :: 1/20/2008
My club (South Revolution) got an interestind idea, because none of us play Freestyle, we are forcing people that doesnt get to the finals in our internal speeder tournament to enter in a Freestyle Tournament.
Unfourtunately I lost, so I need ideas for freestyling, I'm not a good dancer, none of us xD

I meant to compare it to people who are not pros...
Posted by: Thanh on 18:26 CST :: 1/20/2008
The high scores are pretty pointless since people who are no pros can abuse it by playing hard stuff like Chimera NM with multiple people.
The answer you probably want would be this though. 8 mil for me was For You NM (Extremely easy way to get 2.5 mil) BOTW2 CZ (easy 2 mil) LIADZ2 Hard (1.7 mil) and UIMDM NM (1.9mil). So it would be like 4 1-3 skull songs in a set. This to me is alittle above the average since it takes quite a bit of stamina to play skull rating songs in a row.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 20:13 CST :: 1/20/2008
Pro and ITG didn't have 5x IIRC, and even if they did it was highly uneccessary as with ITG/SM speed mods I can barely read 3x pad on a 180 BPM song as its too fast. Plus saying Pro and ITG have it is irrelevant as they are different games to begin with and they also have c-mods, which you will not see in any other dancing game whatsoever.
And besides, 4x is perfect for arcade station. No need for anything higher other than 8x but then again that wasn't really supposed to be taken seriously was it?
Posted by: WayneC02 on 20:16 CST :: 1/20/2008
If they put in a 5x or 6x for the songs less than about 115 bpm, I'd be pretty happy. Some songs in that range are just WAY too slow, even on 4x.
Posted by: Matador on 21:41 CST :: 1/20/2008
x5 would be fast enough,
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 21:43 CST :: 1/20/2008
I'm good 4x though.
Then again I could sightread Phantom CZ 3x at the slowdown enough to FC it, although I can't pass the song yet.
Posted by: Pawprint on 22:37 CST :: 1/20/2008
It's a good score. A really good player put 5.9M on my machine, and I've seen him put more on the DQ machine.

double word indeed 5X would help in songs like Gun rock, Banya P. Guitar remix, and throw em up
the thing is I am a fast reader(with the bar) and those slow songs just kill me miss count miss and PA wise
Posted by: CorruptedOne on 10:47 CST :: 1/21/2008
Not that one. I downloaded another NX2 PC "bETA". It was horribly off-sync, most of the pictures, sounds, songs, were recorded/ripped. I'm still contributing and working my way up to HP VIP. You just need 50 posts and contribute some stuff. I'm already contributing a lot to the Stepmania and other programs section.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 11:18 CST :: 1/21/2008
i need your opinon on this guys:
is not wanting to upgrade to NX2 becuase you don't like the interface dumb? this person loves the NX interface a lot but refuses to upgrade becuase the NX2 interface is horrible
I think that a dumb reason not to get an upgrade. Sure, their are other more valid reasons why not to upgrade but c'mon, interface?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 11:22 CST :: 1/21/2008
Show them WorldMAX's interface and say that's where people will be most of the time.
Posted by: WayneC02 on 11:35 CST :: 1/21/2008
That's a horrible reason to not upgrade. You sure you're not talking about Kuhazan? Besides, the interface here isn't bad at all. Like Turkey said, show them Worldmax.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 11:59 CST :: 1/21/2008
If I don't like an interface it doesn't harm me UNLESS it absolutely interferes with me playing the game or is so ugly I want to gouge my eyes out.
And besides, I know why said person doesn't want NX2 but at the same time wants it for WorldMAX so don't go around starting shit that doesn't need to be started.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 13:00 CST :: 1/21/2008
No I am not starting Shit, and no this person is not kuhazan and it's somebody else. I already showed them worldmax and they think it's cool but this person isn't giving me solid reason why he dosen't want it and i keep getting the same response
-i don't like the interface
- I forgot to mention this another reason is becuase Tell me isn't in the international version
i keep asking why no NX2 and i get those same 2 responses over and over again. I can understand Tell me but throwing a fit over the interface which is the same as NX only with better graphics,
does not make sense
this person BTW is Thanh............but don't go attacking him
Posted by: bse523 on 13:13 CST :: 1/21/2008
I don't even understand Tell Me, is it really that big a deal? The group will be dead before the end of the year just like any other fad.
And if he person doesn't like the interface, tell him he needs to stop playing NX because the interface is very similar to it.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 13:15 CST :: 1/21/2008
Why does NX say it contains 43 new songs for a total of OVER 131 songs? why don't they just say 132 songs?
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 13:20 CST :: 1/21/2008
He has an unhealty obession with Tell Me, it's his number one favorite song (he can't stop singing it everywhere)
He loves NX with a dying passion
this what i don't understand, He loves NX and completely hates NX2. Every time i try to ask him why he hates it's like a broken record; i get the same responses.
I mean I like NX2 interface, it's just like the NX one except with better energy (maybe too much energy for me)
It just dosen't make sense whatsoever, i hate it when people are too vague
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 13:51 CST :: 1/21/2008
Maybe because you are a dumbass in how you respond to him. I dunno about you but I get fucking tired of you just sending me ten lines that consist of nothing but "....................................." in a row because I said something you don't agree with.
He thinks the interface is too crowded compared to NX (I agree with that, as the arcade songwheel looks a bit crunched.) and he wanted to play Tell Me, one of the songs he was really well looking forward to. SURE there are new songs, but the ones removed are ones we all still play, yet another reason we still would stick to NX over NX2. AND YET ANOTHER REASON, the harder timing window, no matter how slight, makes freestyling a bit harder for us, as we are still trying to get actual moves done for the hell of it but are still needing to memorize steps. Of course YOU wouldn't understand as you see freestyling as completely useless.
Again, he never said he didn't want to play NX2. He just thinks that NX is fine as it is and so do about 3/4 of the regular players at our arcade. As Turkeyslam said, NX has a lot more life to it than previous mixes, and sure NX2 has cool new things but if you have NX and don't get NX2 you still have a very good Pump mix to play.
Posted by: WayneC02 on 14:13 CST :: 1/21/2008
It was a joke, I was playing around with how he thinks every mix should be exactly like Premiere 2.
Tell me isn't that big a deal. It wasn't even announced until the Korean version was out and even then, it was specified that it would only be for the Korean version. He may like the song but it was made clear it wouldn't be on the international version, why make a big stink over it?
But really, if he owns the machine, it's ultimately up to him whether or not to upgrade. Whining about it won't make it happen any faster or possibly at all. Especially if, as cpu says, 3/4 of the regulars DON'T want an upgrade.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 14:41 CST :: 1/21/2008
Note this a long list of stuff that is unrealted to pump so scrolldown if you don't feel like reading it
jesus chirst, take a deep breathe and calm down and let me explain just how very wrong you are with your points. we can do this in a civilized manner instead of lashing out and calling out names.
1. i am not in anyway a dumbass when I respond to him. I just find it weird that a person who loves the NX interface suddenly refuses to not get NX2, but NX2 has the same interface as NX only with better graphics. and when i do give him a dumbass responses, i am only joking with him and then tell him i am joking becuase you can't tell when a person is being serious online
2. dropped songs? yea, I could see that as a reason not to upgrade, i mean hell some of those dropped pop songs i like. However, it could be nice of said person would of told me "oh they dropped this song and such i don't want him." however, when I asked the question i never got the answer.
3. Freestyling i find useless? that's the hardly the word to use, it's more like i don't bother to do it. and the timing window isn't that strict to what the Beta had. On top of that IF YOU FAIL THE SONG WITH AN F YOU CAN CONTINUE. so you can freestyle away if you want. I think somebody should have rethought what they typed.
4. I was only stating my opinon on the matter asking other what they think, i never meant to start shit. However, you got this wild idea i was attacking him and I wasen't. If he would have told me what I asked then it would be different. your the one that took this shit to seriously and though i was flamming. Someone just needs to relax and rethink on what their reading.
one last thing you find it annoying when i do this "................."
well how about when you do you your infamous "..." whenever i ask you a question not metion you get so worked up about it when i use. and to that fact, whenever i say something you that you don't like you use the "..." to so i don't know what the hell your talking about
somebody needs to stop taking the internet too seriously.
And i understand he's fine with NX and that's a whole another topic that i don't feel like and won't get into, cuz it's not my place to do.
that being said their is a rare chance my arcade is never getting NX2, the place is in debt
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 14:56 CST :: 1/21/2008
This arguement is now over guys. Stop the flaming and arguing. You know it's getting out of control when Partyboy tells you to stop it.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 15:05 CST :: 1/21/2008
agreed and partyboy, when you go to disney quest to they allow you to bring in a towel and and extra T-shirt to change? and you guys have 4 pump machines right? so i wonder if you guys would get 5
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 15:07 CST :: 1/21/2008
You could bring anything you want in. Except food or drinks. Which I bring anyway. They don't check backpacks. lol. But yea, they wouldn't mind if you brought a towel or another T-shirt. I bring like, 4 or 5 extra shirts when I'm gonna be there for more than 5 or 6 hours, and many of us bring towels.
EDIT: yup, 4 pump machine, AND there's been confirmation of another Dance machine that has been ordered and will arive soon, and it's rumored to be a DDR supernova 2 OR an NX2. Nobody has confirmed which one yet. I'm hoping its an NX2.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 17:55 CST :: 1/21/2008
A.U. ready sounds like a C.B. Mass song, really great to Freestyle though
Posted by: Thanh on 21:45 CST :: 1/21/2008
Just cause I don't want to uprade doesn't mean I hate NX2. WorldMAX looks very promising. I am just really attached to NX. Also whether or not I want to upgrade or not won't matter since its the arcade to decide not me.
So in other news, I went to Gainesville, and saw a Perfect collection machine that was turned off. So close to getting to play a Taiji song :<
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 21:55 CST :: 1/21/2008
So now that we have fully unlocked NX, time for me to start improving. ITG training over the Winter Break has helped my timing a lot. Now I NEED stamina badly to do 4skul+ songs. ;;__;; I don't know about anyone else, but its embarrassing to get 100+ misses on any song unless its 10 minutes long. :/ Just need to give it time. Keep playing two to three times a week like I have, and I might have a chance at tackling 8skull songs before summer. /need to work for it/
Should probably try to play ITG ever now and then. I still have $110 worth of tokens left from winter break. lol. They had a special. $50 for $100 worth of tokens, and when you get tokens, you get $5 free for every $20....$125 tokens for $50 not bad.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 22:01 CST :: 1/21/2008
There was absolutely no flaming in that post. In fact, I just said he makes dumbass responses when we try to say our opinions. Hell you can't deny this either. The whole thing started with him posting about it in the first place when it was highly unneccesary.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 22:21 CST :: 1/21/2008
GIVE.IT.FUCKING.REST.ALREADY. Dumbass remarks? look who's talking; I think somebody needs to rethink what the hell their typing
and i was stating my opinion on a topic and I asked others for their opinion. Just drop the whole the thing, and if you can't, continue by sending a PM instead cluttering the forum a pointless argument
anyway, anybody got a solid price on how much NX2 upgrade is going to cost?
Posted by: supernovamaniac on 06:56 CST :: 1/22/2008
You hate someone? just shut up and ignore. end of problem.
I'm guessing it's about 2000 or 3000 just for an upgrade, just like NX. However, there will be extra cost, like two usb drives and some flash drives. (take out the usb drives if you own FX cab.)
Posted by: WayneC02 on 11:27 CST :: 1/22/2008
< http://www.ph-online.net/cgi-bin....;t=8237 >
Yep, about $2000 for the upgrade, including USB.
Posted by: CorruptedOne on 15:40 CST :: 1/22/2008
Well, now I'll just sit and wait for someone in New York to get NX2 so I can play it. Nobody is going to listen to a dude my age to upgrade a game.

It's the "Tip Board" at Epcot in Disney World. It tells you how long the lines are at each attraction/ride. And there's a ride there called Maelstrom.
CorruptedOne: That has nothing to do with PIU whatsoever.
Posted by: Noodles on 17:26 CST :: 1/23/2008
Let the dude ask his questions.
Cherry Pie or Blueberry Pie? Just kidding.....
Yes, that is a ride at epcot. My camera wouldnt take the pictue because it was too bright, so I had to focus it on, and take the pic right before it switched over.
Any charts that people are going to enjoy on NX2?

I guess you'll figure it out when DQ gets it and you purchase the USB stick, I guess (?)
Posted by: Noodles on 15:53 CST :: 1/24/2008
I know they won't. It's like with Tekken and NFS: Underground :: They have "record card" slots, but they put a nail through it so nobody uses it.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 18:11 CST :: 1/24/2008
But take a look at the NX machine... The USB ports are still open for use. They even took the lil slider thingees off of them. They might do the same IF they get NX2.
Posted by: Noodles on 18:46 CST :: 1/24/2008
No, those slider things are still there, they are pushed up all the way, into the semi-lock. (When you push the cover up, it sets into place)
I don't think they even knew about the USB things. Lets hope when DQ buys NX2, AM dosen't say anything about "We support USB play too!"... which is highly unlikely.
BACK TO TOPIC!: Does anybody remember the thread where the format USB to play on NX2 is?

Posted by: kpopgrrl on 20:48 CST :: 1/25/2008
Though the machine itself does ask you if you want to insert a usb before you play so they'll obviously realize it's possible and every upgrade kit comes with one usb.

As long as you can move comfortably in them, and they don't tear after a skull song, they should be okay. I would use them since I play flat-footed.
Not sure about sports though. They don't "look" like they would be too great.

does any machine owners know how to fix the error on NX where the bottom of the screen shows the mods you can add on? It's at the bottom where it shows how many coins you need to put it and it's so freaking annoying..i told the manager but he didn't fix it!
Posted by: davyn on 22:08 CST :: 1/26/2008
Clean out any openings in the cabinet and computer box that may have filled with dust. It's a glitch that happens when the machine overheats. Unplugging the machine for a minute and plugging it back it in will get rid of it for a while as well.
Posted by: Jared on 22:47 CST :: 1/26/2008

A quick question about Pump NX and the FX cabinet :
Is there a way to fix the Aspect Ratio of the screen ? because a new machine just arrived at our local arcade, and the aspect ratio is just wrong : the clips and arrows are too wide, as if meant to be displayed on a 4/3 screen instead of the 16/9 one... Thanx !
Posted by: valius on 14:41 CST :: 1/28/2008
Unfortunately, there is no widescreen mode for the game, so you're stuck with the stretched arrows, since the game's real resolution is and has always been 640x480
Posted by: BlueScreenJunky on 16:08 CST :: 1/28/2008
Oh... that sucks, I thought there would be a 720p mode to match the screen :-/
Oh well, I guess I'll get used to it, thanx for the answer !

Corrupted, make a topic in the Exclusive board so anyone who has the right permissions can get to it without PMing you. If anyone says anything about it being there, let them know you have my permission.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 22:47 CST :: 1/28/2008
He won't be able to. Only admins have access to thread-making in there.
Posted by: WayneC02 on 22:55 CST :: 1/28/2008
Ah, right. I'll get it and take a look at it first, then.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 23:03 CST :: 1/28/2008
That pump pc is total sex. If you want i can fix up the few flawed charts, put in better audio files, re-up it somewhere, and send you the link to add to the exclusive member board
Posted by: WayneC02 on 23:33 CST :: 1/28/2008
I already PMed Corrupted asking for the beta. I'm just gonna check it out and see if it's even worth taking the time to create a specific topic for it. If it is, I'll go ahead and make the thread and I'll update it when the "final" version comes out and Corrupted gets it to us.
Posted by: CorruptedOne on 14:20 CST :: 1/29/2008
Okay, guys, PMs have been sent.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 15:02 CST :: 1/29/2008
Dude, that Pump PC has so much shit in it, they could probably release this as the final version. It's totally BA.
Posted by: WayneC02 on 15:46 CST :: 1/29/2008
Uh... are you serious?
It's complete trash.
Sure, it may LOOK pretty good but the charts are ALL offsync, either early OR late. Whoever sync'd the charts did a bad job either way.
Unless they get their shit together and finalize a full non-shitty NX2 PC version, I'm not at all sorry to say that you guys can keep this thing to Corrupted's PMs.
I do, however, thank him for getting and sending it to us. So thanks.
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 16:43 CST :: 1/29/2008
I prefer to play barefoot. Better to get triples, you can actually feel where you're stepping, and you'll NEVER slip any ANY way.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 16:59 CST :: 1/29/2008
Well... I may have replaced all the .AUD's with the MP3's from that NX2 rar thingee Turkey uploaded (in other words, they're no longer shitty audio rips, but the actual perfect quality files) and synced most of the charts... that's probably why I think it's really good.
Posted by: sang321 on 17:19 CST :: 1/29/2008
any chance that you could send me your good copy?
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 20:32 CST :: 1/29/2008
I feel so left behind. Since my friend got Spork's NX machine, he went from being decent to actually B'ing stuff like PMA and Blazing nm...and it hasn't even been a month yet. @_@ Sure, he's baring and timing isn't that good (the only thing I can beat him at it seems now)...it was only just last month he was having problems passing stuff above 18...now he's B'ing it. :/ I feel so left behind. :/
But I'm happy. It's good Tallahassee is finally getting some decent action now. I just wish I had more time to play. Damn 4000 level classes. @_@
Posted by: bse523 on 20:34 CST :: 1/29/2008
Does your friend own an arcade? Or is it private use?
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 20:44 CST :: 1/29/2008
Private use. This is his youtube account. < http://www.youtube.com/user/brendanthesavage > Fully unlocked NX FTW.
Posted by: bse523 on 20:47 CST :: 1/29/2008
Goody. He lied again. I was the second person to play on that machine. Did he use the .ini that was used for the final version? I ask because it was the beta...
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 20:50 CST :: 1/29/2008
We tried that and didn't work. All we accomplished was erasing all the scores, so we turned off freeplay, and held F2 for twenty minutes. That gave us about 40,000 plays and it unlocked everything. I still need to upload the video. I tried last week, but it didn't go through. Maybe something with my browser. Youtube flakes on me at times.
Posted by: bse523 on 20:51 CST :: 1/29/2008
ahh that makes sense. in case you didn't know, the beta has full on keyboard support. it's like one huge stepmania cab.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 20:55 CST :: 1/29/2008
Yeah. We tried it out a little bit. Since we are on that topic, I have a question...does 5/6x work on it like on Pump PC? Since when you press any number 1-6 on the keyboard, the speed mod changes accordingly. I haven't been there since last week, and he doesn't want to try hooking up stuff without someone more technically able around (even though its just hooking up a keyboard)...so we haven't found out if that trick works on NX. Would be nice to have 5x for Fighting Spirits and We Goin' Fly.
Posted by: bse523 on 20:57 CST :: 1/29/2008
It sure does. Also I THINK that holding a speed mod down helps with the random velocity missions.
It's also as simple as plugging in a PS/2 keyboard into the back of the console.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 21:00 CST :: 1/29/2008
Excellent. My friend will be pleased to know that it works. He'll probably purchase a keyboard tomorrow for the machine knowing that. Man...the weekend seems so far away for I can play. ;;__;; He had SATs last week, so understandably there was no Pump to be had. Oh well...it'll be that much sweeter when we get together next time. Feels like our community is coming back.

Haha if you have any more questions, just AIM me.
Posted by: CorruptedOne on 16:36 CST :: 1/30/2008
Lol, I warned you guys. The beta isn't as good as the full release. The first time I played it, I accidentally just went back to the main menu after changing the Timing to easy and stage break off instead of pressing the "BACK" button and the game was back to default settings and I failed miserably failed Tell Me CZ.

I'm still replacing a few of the .AUD's and there's about 5 or 6 more charts I need to sync up. Also, I don't know if anyone even cares, but Astral Song CZ and NM along with HiBi another CZ and NM dont even have the .STX's. I was planning on replacing the rest of the AUD's and getting those .STX's, then I was going to re-upload it for everyone. I should have this done by either Sunday or Monday. I'll talk to the Admins about creating a topic to post it in, and I'll also PM you and Noodles when I have it uploaded.

I actually really like the chart for A.U. Ready CZ. Sure, it's easy (10), but it's a good way to practice twists in short segments at a slow speed.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 17:29 CST :: 1/31/2008
Btw, Is it just me, or does it sound like the title should be "R.U. Ready"? It sounds like that in the song... where the hell did they get A.U. from?

Ugly Dee another doesn't require to use your hands...though it would definitely be easier .
Our NX2 kit arrived today, but they switched hard drives to SATA and didn't include any adapter. So instead of going out and buying one, they called Andamiro and of course were told they had to order a new MK system. I have an adapter kit and hopefully I can talk to the guy who knows what's up and we can get it going before the new computer gets here.
Posted by: Noodles on 09:28 CST :: 2/03/2008
Someone answer me this: What the hell is with this MK6 MK7 and so on stuff? What does this mean?
Posted by: Pawprint on 11:00 CST :: 2/03/2008
It's a naming system for the different types of system boards (the PC inside the cabinet that runs everything) that have been made over the years. Currently we have MK6 (non-FX cabs) and MK7 (FX cabs). I don't know what the difference between the two is.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 12:14 CST :: 2/03/2008
Also, MK5 was what shipped with Exceed. Slower processor and less features. MK3 is what the CD-based mixes had. It had no hard drive or anything like that.

Posted by: the_peacemaker on 17:36 CST :: 2/03/2008
I mentioned this elsewhere:
I have a feeling it's because AM themselves don't like them and they're trying to make them look bad on purpose. Have you heard the May Remix yet?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 17:48 CST :: 2/03/2008
It's probably a cheap license. And no... I'm pretty sure they do like it, but they still acknowledge how it's obnoxious music. The May Remix is clearly a joke.
But you know what... the HCTP parts of that remix sound good to me.

i really hope they make the korean titles in english, now i know it dosen't matter becuase the name of the song scrolls on the bottom but then i have to hear in my arcade "Is that Chinese?" and point to a title card
now you can't blame people for saying that, cuz not many people don't know what hangul is but it will get annoying...fast
Posted by: xyouxarexuglyx2 on 22:58 CST :: 2/07/2008
Haha, that reminds be of how this kid at school was baffled at how I was able to distinguish between Korean and Japanese text. It's really one of the easiest things in the world haha.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 23:35 CST :: 2/07/2008
Um... do they not expect foreign songs in a music game to begin with?
If they don't remove them good. I love when they have it as authentic as that.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 23:53 CST :: 2/07/2008
They're not removing them. The international versions have the original Korean ones.
I, too, like it this way. There's nothing wrong with authenticity and keeping things true to what they are. (to a limit, of course - but with the titles showing in English beneath the songs and English being used in every menu and everywhere that has directions, it works fine)
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 00:45 CST :: 2/08/2008
....okay. Just thought of something, and I'm not playing NX2 for a while to try this.
Someone try combining Drop with Under Attack. It should create a thing where you have to hit the mirror of the entire chart while still scrolling up.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 11:00 CST :: 2/08/2008
uhhhh I don't expect new people, who never played pump before, to know that the name of the song scrolls at the bottom of the title card. If their not changing, I am going to here "I Can't read it, is it in Chinese?" a million times then of course i will happily tell them their (wrong) and explain to them it's korean. It happened when we had our X2 and in remix station they had the title cards in english and korean and the same quesion "I can't read it, is it Chinese?" popped up again. nothing wrong with keeping the game authentic, but most of the new people trying pump have NO IDEA what in the flipping A what the game is about; So i find it would be more accesible if they just made the K-POP have english title cards
plus, 2 of the K-POP songs have english title cards (Feel the soul and Come back home) Oddly though, it's my buisness is in korean
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 11:34 CST :: 2/08/2008
If they can't appreciate the titles like that then its too bad for them. They shouldn't have to change the titles on the titlecards just because "new people" can't read them. People still can't identify what Beethoven Virus is by title but they know the song, and that is basically all that matters.
Posted by: valius on 12:59 CST :: 2/08/2008
The only thing to note though is that X2's a really different looking interface from NX2. X2 only HAD the title and it took up a gigantic chunk of the selection screen, so people had to use it to pick songs.
NX2 has smaller titles, and the information "bar" on the bottom is a little more prominent, since the title just disappears because of the BGA preview, so new users won't be able to see the Korean titles for that long, so they'll probably look to the bottom.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 13:07 CST :: 2/08/2008
It's not odd. The "Korean" title of Come Back Home and Feel the Soul are... Come Back Home and Feel the Soul. A.U Ready has an English title card for the same reason. They were released in Korea with this name. Songs like Dignity, Do It Yourself, and We Don't Stop come to my head as being songs like that too. I know there's tons.
It's My Business is not the original title of the song... it's 내 맘이야, and that's why it's on the title screen.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 14:01 CST :: 2/08/2008
the problem in my arcade is people are so clueless and they don't bother to read anything, they just stare at the screen and start mashing buttons. I try my best to explain the game and them how to navigate but they either just go away or play once and never again. IMO, I think the korean titles would scare them away but that's just me, Hell I try to do everything in my power to get new people to play (We really need new players)
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 14:15 CST :: 2/08/2008
You don't even see the Korean until the song's already selected. Even when you choose it in the menu, it shoots into its BGA immediately to where you don't even read the Korean anymore. Not to mention this is only applicable for the new songs.
That's a pathetic thing to complain about.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 14:30 CST :: 2/08/2008
who said I was complaining? I am no way complaining them keeping
the korean titles, I a just stating what could happen at my local arcade if we get the game, and people see it. True, once you select the songs the card dissapears and the BGA but ppl still want to know the name of the song
Look, This type of shit happens at my arcade A lot and i might not happen anywhere else but it happens at my place, I am just saying that the way i see it it's a bad idea for new player, for me, I don't really care, but I do appricate and understand why they did it
So is the NX2 revision ready to ship yet or do we have have to wait a bit longer (In the USA)
Posted by: valius on 14:32 CST :: 2/08/2008
All they'd have to do is look about 1-2 inches below the Title? It's much larger and easier to see on NX2, and it's not nearly the same situation as X2, where you didn't get that information independent of the title.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 14:44 CST :: 2/08/2008
the problem is they don't bother to look down at the title, like I said they just stare at the screen.....stare at the screen...stare and the screen. Then they ask me "What's the name of the song?" and i point to the title card and below it and explains it scrolls on the bottom.
I might have maybe worried too much about this, but hopefully if we get NX2 they can read the larger font
yea i tend to over-zealous on very minuscle things....a stupid habit of mine
also here's the NX2 intro with sound
Reminds me of the Zero intro....strange
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 15:01 CST :: 2/08/2008
People haven't really been reading title screens since Zero. Most people choose by image recognition and others just read the very blatant scrolling text with the song title.
Posted by: Thanh on 22:31 CST :: 2/08/2008
Just out of curiosity, who at our arcade even looks at the game? The new players don't read the title cards or anything, they just pick songs at random.
Posted by: Pawprint on 22:32 CST :: 2/08/2008
Not the same as the actual Mirror code, although it is like a real mirror. Basically it's a left/right flip. Red is still red, blue is still blue. And of course it's on the other side of the screen. On doubles the pads are flipped, too, so when the arrows are on the left side you have to be on the right. And yes, it scrolls up. Good thinking!
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 23:07 CST :: 2/08/2008
I'm playing that next time.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 23:27 CST :: 2/08/2008
Before you even started to play, their were a lot of new people trying out the game and even looking at the title cards, you weren't around then
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 14:47 CST :: 2/09/2008
You don't seem to get it.
I was there today, and people wanted to play. Instead of reading anything, titlecards or not, they just mashed the center button until they were playing the game. They don't read anything the game has to say anyway. WHY would they care about titlecards?
And besides, they don't stop playing because of "foreign" music or "crappy unknown songs" at our arcade. They know DDR and they know J-pop. In fact its pretty much normal to know at least one song like that, be it J-pop, K-pop, Indian, or whatever the hell language or style it is. They stop playing because of other reasons, be it money, no interest in it, or the people that do play it on a regular basis that ruin it for them. I'm mainly putting it for our arcade the latter two.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 20:49 CST :: 2/09/2008
you don't seem to get it either
I encountered this problem way B4 you started playing pump, which was back in 2005-2006, a lot has changed since we switched to NX but B4 i had to deal with a lot of new people and trying to explain. As matter of fact, a lot of people never try the game becuase 1.) they don't like the music or 2.) they are scared to try it or 3.) they don't want to invest their time and money in the game
Yes i have met people in the past that DO READ THE TITLE CARDS and these were NEW PLAYERS and i can to explain to them what the title cards mean and the songs are in korean, not in chinese(LOL)
and this type of shit happens in all arcades, you just haven't ran into any of these people yet
the topic ends here

All of the songs on that list are pure bullshit (other than Monkey Fingers, which eventually became true much to our surprise). Some are artists that don't even exist, created by Hozz and myself. However... look at the prediction I made three and a half years in advance:

Just discovered a tidbit while researching something.....
"Enter," Andamiro's arcade in Seoul, was originally going to be called "En-Park." It opened in Summer 2004.
Also, the ninja mannequin outside the front entrance was removed last year (it used to advertise the restaurant on the top floor). Local pumpers use to joke that the ninja was supposed to be Sera (who did some famous Solitary FS routines in ninja costume). And now that Sera's away, performing his mandatory army service, pumpers joke that they took the ninja away because Sera's gone.
Posted by: KurenaiSchwarz on 17:57 CST :: 2/13/2008
Turkey, that should give you some extra points in that NX2 speculation thread
Today, I played in a FX cab for the first time. Ankward in the beginning, but I got used to it after 2-3 plays. I still prefer GX.
What annoys me is that the arcade could have saved the FX money to buy a NX2 with a GX cabinet, but no - they got a NX, when they already have another one...
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 23:41 CST :: 2/14/2008
This was the D&B in Dania.
Also, I was told today they just got 'the newest mix'.
Naturally me and two friends rush down there, and find...
NX. They had it for months and just hadn't installed it until now.
I hope they're more on the ball with NX2.

Well, I'm not like you guys that can actually tell. So, you have to see for yourself, I guess. xD
EDIT: THE SCROLLING SPEED IS BETTER. THE ONLY THING IS, IT'S STILL MISSING SOME STUFF, AND THERE'S A COUPLE OF SONGS WITHOUT A STEPCHART AND JUST THE MUSIC COMES ON. IT'S ABLE TO DO 1000+ COMBO NOW. IT HAS THE REAL GRADING SCREEN SOUND. IT COULD STILL USE IMPROVEMENTS. SORRY FOR THE ALL-CAPS THING.

There's occasional screwups and stupidity in there, as well as bad or incomplete charts, but it's by far the best NX2 mod on the internet right now.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 09:04 CST :: 2/17/2008
I just realized a huge flaw with NX's training station.
One player only.
That's all good and fine for single players, but there's a lot of couples and what not, at D&B especially, that insist on playing together, which pretty much traps them in arcade station.
And the easiest '1 star' song that I could find, N, is still tougher than a '3 star' from Zero's easy station.
I don't know if they fixed that in NX2, but I hope so. The beginners are what get the game the most plays, I bet.
Posted by: sang321 on 14:20 CST :: 2/24/2008
Our NX machine just had it's full unlock by coins yesterday and is there a specific chart I should play for fun? I play 1 skull and less but i'll play harder charts for the fun of it...And is our machine the only one unlocked fully without it being on freeplay always?

Wi-Ex-Doc-Va on HD or CZ or both? And what speed would u recommend since I don't want to waste my money by putting it on wrong speed and screwing it up...
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 20:34 CST :: 2/24/2008
CZ is nuts, yet, fun at the same time. Never tried the hard... but i'd recommend 2x for the hard, and 3x for the crazy.
Posted by: sang321 on 06:27 CST :: 2/25/2008
Posted by: Thanh on 06:33 CST :: 2/25/2008
Gun Rock [A] on CZ and NM are pretty good. 4x would be good there.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 12:03 CST :: 2/25/2008
No offense, but playing Wi-Ex-Doc-Va CZ at your level would be suicide. You could always TRY it, but, um...it's 6 skulls, and it's 2 minutes 45 seconds long, so...
The HD is 1 skull, and you might be able to pass it, so definitely do that first.
If you don't mind spoiling a surprise, you can always look at both charts in the V-charts section here.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 15:14 CST :: 2/25/2008
Wi-Ex-Doc-Va on Crazy is completely and totally overrated.
Posted by: ShinjiKinomoto on 16:02 CST :: 2/25/2008
The cz, yes, but not the nm. @_@ I know you didn't say nm, but I just wanted to through that out there.
Posted by: sang321 on 16:07 CST :: 2/25/2008
Wi-Ex-Doc-Va on CZ doesn't look like it has hard steps but is just tiresome. I would try it but our local machine let's go of the freezes we just step on so I wouldn't try it since there are too many pancakes..HD looks like I can even pass it no bar or using the bar for turns..It doesn't look like 1-skull to me...Gun Rock A-CZ looks like a really fun chart that I can pass. I'll try those two next time I go..
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 16:09 CST :: 2/25/2008
Are you kidding me? 210 bpm 16th-drills WITH twists?! And almost 3 minutes long?
I'm seriously going to pass Chimera CZ, Bee NM, and maybe even Canon-D NM before I ever get less than 300 misses on that.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 16:16 CST :: 2/25/2008
Wi-Ex-Doc-Va on Crazy is not that bad.
I'd play it over any of those you mentioned, even Chimera on HARD mode, any day.
That doesn't mean I play it often, though. I've only played it maybe twice.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 16:20 CST :: 2/25/2008
Yeah, but you hate Chimera. And aside from the M-runs, Chimera HD is actually fun once you realize that the speed changes are completely predictable.
I won't hesitate to admit, though, that Chimera in general is WAY too hard.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 16:34 CST :: 2/25/2008
I love Chimera A-HD to death. And I don't mind the A-CZ if I have a lot of energy at the time.

anyway it's a very good interlude song i have not heard in a while
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 18:01 CST :: 2/25/2008
I made steps for it but I would never, ever want it in the game. There's a difference.
Of course it's a good song, though. And not shitty pop.
Posted by: xyouxarexuglyx2 on 18:23 CST :: 2/25/2008
What are you talking about? Canon-D NM is a LOT worse than WXDV CZ.
I can probably come out of my 6-month Pump hiatus and play WXDV CZ in the first one or two days, and I probably will not get over 300 misses on it.
Canon-D and Bee NM on the other hand, I couldn't even pass 6 months ago.
(Just so you know, I actually AM going to do that and record my WXDV run)
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 19:53 CST :: 2/25/2008
I don't know about you, but the last time I played WXDV CZ on Stepmania, with my fingers, I failed.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 19:59 CST :: 2/25/2008
The only insanely challenging part of that chart is the drilling part. The rest is just general Crazy mode stuff.
I'm better at drills than pretty much anything else, so it's no problem for me.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 20:13 CST :: 2/25/2008
I like drills. I tried doing the drills for Extravaganza A-NM but failed miserably because the rest of the chart tires me out.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 20:23 CST :: 2/25/2008
Well, I can't combo a burst of more than five drilled notes total at that speed, so there you go.
I still can't combo the end of Will-o-the-Wisp CZ to this date.
Posted by: ndre on 22:25 CST :: 2/25/2008
'waffles and pancakes'?
I never heard anyone uses that word for triplets and quadroplets (am I right with this word?)
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 22:29 CST :: 2/25/2008
See, That's the problem I have. I get about 5 - 10 misses MAXIMUM on the rest of the chart. It's that fucking drill. It's not that I get tired, I just sometimes either can't keep up with the drill OR i get ahead of it. Other than the end drill thingee, Extravaganza A NM is a piece of cake.
Also, Witch Doctor A NM is east as crap EXCEPT for the homo sexual weird jump thingees in the middle. If it weren't for those, I'd S that crap.

Posted by: the_peacemaker on 12:03 CST :: 2/26/2008
Maybe, but that's not saying much. There are a TON of songs that would work better than any of those.
Just because a song works BETTER than any of those doesn't automatically mean it's a good idea to throw it in.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 12:20 CST :: 2/26/2008
I don't think Nexcade is that stupid to include this.
And, as peacemaker said, just because a song works better doesn't mean it should be in. The best songs are the ones that nobody has heard of until its been heard in the game. Least that is what I think.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 12:56 CST :: 2/26/2008
How about the third option of "none of the above"?
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 14:17 CST :: 2/26/2008
that only leaves the K-POP channel and Banya.P/Yahpp, theirfore pump is no longer the "international Dance floor" (your losing pop songs from different parts if the world) leaving the game to be nothing but koreans songs and classical remixes
Good idea for some long-term players/K-POP fanatics
Bad idea becuase you alinating new players
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 14:27 CST :: 2/26/2008
Just because you dislike K-Pop doesn't mean everyone else does, especially considering they never heard of it.
Also only classical remixes? There are plenty of Banya Production and Yahpp songs that are more than classical remixes. Its the player's fault if they don't branch out.
And again, Pop songs do not mean that will attract new players, especially with songs like Bust Back and We Goin' Fly, songs that aren't that popular to begin with AFAIK. There's a big difference between popular songs and songs that make up the Pop channel.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 15:17 CST :: 2/26/2008
This is your problem: you need to look at it from a different angel, many people in america have not been exposed to K-POP music, so when they put credits in the machine, their looking for songs they recognize or something in english. Most people playing for the first will not like, and their fore will never play again.
I liked the idea of the POP channel becuase like it or not hell theirs still some good songs in it and even if the songs aren't popular, it might attract new people, the Keyword is might. And in most cases the pop songs have not attracted new people, but i have seen some situations were a person saw me a play pop song and tried pump
I dislike K-POP? that is true, but I liked the pop channel beacuse even if it had shitty songs, it added variety to the songlist.
Now if took out the POP channel, from my point of view, many players would be happy with just that. I would still play the game i would just miss the channel and it would make the game more niche andit would still sell the same wiht or without the channel
i like the channel cuz it gave pump vareity and that's my opinon
Classicl Remixes? oops forgot about the other yahpp/ Bany P. stuff my bad
Posted by: sang321 on 15:50 CST :: 2/26/2008
Wi-Ex-Doc-Va CZ didn't look that hard...i forgot i wanted to try Chimera A-HD since hd was too tiring for me..
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 16:06 CST :: 2/26/2008
That's because of DDR and its licenses. It has NOTHING to do with being familiar with the songs.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 17:43 CST :: 2/26/2008
How about YOU look at it from a different "angel" than your own?
Part of what attracts people to anything, be it a video game or a new fast food restaurant, is the appeal of there being something new or original to it. On the most part, genericization leads to public disinterest in a product, unless said product is some kind of consumable item with a MUCH cheaper markup. As far as video games are concerned, there's a reason games that don't do anything original don't sell. Who the hell wants to play something that's just like everything else? For example, look at something like Guitar Hero. They had all the money in the world to make their game have a ridiculous line-up of songs. Have you ever thought that the reason the game sells so well is not only because of its songlist but because the console gaming market doesn't have any fun games that do the same thing? Rock Band... same deal, it only sold well because it one-upped Guitar Hero in its game experience. It could have the best song list in the world but if the gameplay isn't there, people will get bored of it.
The majority of what makes Pump what it is involves people experiencing something they can't experience anywhere else. There's a REASON that Pre/Prex 3 and Exceed SE flopped. The majority of the public doesn't give a crap about familiarity to the music in the game. Those who do care and get catered to will lose interest in a game VERY, VERY quickly if they realize the game sucks. Yes, you're right. If the game had a few songs that would attract the public, it would introduce more players. The only problem is that said players who only played the game to play the songs that are familiar to them will end up getting bored of the game and quitting when they realize that the game doesn't appeal to them. As far as profits are concerned, these people are a POINTLESS demographic to target. Now, for those who give the game's unique appeal a chance (notice how the same thing is required for ANY player to get involved with ANY game) - they'll be returning back for more once they want to enjoy an experience that only that game provides. As far as people who only play dance games for the music, they come back to Pump to play shit like Beethoven Virus, Dignity, Love is a Danger Zone, Fly, etc etc etc, because Pump is the only game where that music can be played. The same thing goes for people who go play In the Groove or DDR. And look at DDR... the series gobbles up popular American licenses. However, as far as long-time and hardcore DDR players are concerned, WHO THE HELL only continues to play because of the popular licenses that everyone in the world has heard to death? Nobody. You think people play SuperNova 2 to play a Duran Duran song or 1980s shit like Unbelievable?
People like you seriously don't understand how much uniqueness and originality are important to keeping a game relevant.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 18:18 CST :: 2/26/2008
Moonlight, I see what you're saying, it might be nice to scroll through a songlist and say, "oh, I know THAT song, why don't I play it and see what it's like?" But unless you're a hopelessly obessed (pre-)teen girl, you're not going to become a serious player that way. Licenses like the stuff by Duran Duran DO work in bringing people along to play the game, but only ONCE. They don't bring regular long-term players who'd spend lots of time and money. It takes original gameplay to do that.
Hell, why do YOU keep playing if you dislike so many of the songs so much? Because apparently, somehow, you still think this game is fun in some way or another.
Because of my above point, I don't mind seeing one or two tracks on the machine that are fairly well-known, but out of 120+ selectable songs, nothing more than that.

That item is only for the SECOND player pad. Basically, it's the pad for 2P which connects to the 1P pad (the 1P pad is the one with USB). You won't be able to use a 2P pad on its own, since it won't connect to anything in the computer!

About a week before the talent show started. My one (and ONLY) PIU home pads was busted. -sort-of- I mean, it worked, but the lower right-arrow was unresponsive most of the time. So I had to order a new PIU pad. It arrived in time.
Now that the talent show is over. I might as well practice for next year, and this years Minnesota State Fair.

I think NX2 is gonna be fun like all the other 2nd Generation (Exceed, Exceed 2, Zero), and 3rd Gen. versions of PIU (NX).
I know that this version only lets you play At Least 2 songs, but to me, it gives more of a challenge of PIU players. Also, the World Max Station sounds like fun. I don't have a USB Stick yet. (I plan to buy one soon).
So, I don't care if I play only at least 2 songs, All I care about is if it's PIU, then that's all that matters.
Also, now I can battle the students from my school w/o any worries.

Posted by: F-haru 1952 on 15:04 CST :: 3/02/2008
At least two songs? Uh, AFAIK all recent Pump versions allow you to play at least one song and at most four. The only thing this changes is making the maximum three instead of four, and to be honest, with the new focus on WorldMAX (which seems to be awesome), I don't think it's that big of a deal.
Besides, if they made the Arcade Station max 4 songs and WorldMAX only 3, it'd give people less incentive to do WM.

Double post, but I have a really retarded question here...
Has anyone attempted to insert a USB keyboard into the USB box to change the song scroll speed like you can if you attach a USB keyboard to the back USB ports? Isn't it nothing more than an extension of those back ports?
Posted by: Pawprint on 15:52 CST :: 3/05/2008
I can basically verify that USB keyboards do not work at all. I thought that NX2 had completely disabled keyboard support until I accidentally pressed F2 on a PS/2 keyboard which I now have hooked up and went into the operator menu!
I will do a thorough test at a later date.
Posted by: davyn on 19:51 CST :: 3/05/2008
I don't think you could do anything with the USB ports outside of the screen where it tells you to insert your drive. That's what the power cables were for. It probably only activates when it needs to access data (insert USB screen, data save screen).
Posted by: Pawprint on 21:53 CST :: 3/05/2008
Yes, I think so too, except they're not so much power cables as activate/deactivate the circuit board inside the box to stop the USB signal. Semantics, perhaps....
But my USB stuff is hooked directly into the ports and my USB keyboard still does nothing (in terms of controlling NX2).

Posted by: Turkeyslam on 17:22 CST :: 3/14/2008
Feel free to upload it to the FTP here.
Also, I'm not a member of their crazy VIP club, but I'm very impressed with their efforts on it. If you could forward them the message that I might have content to help them with their project, that'll be cool.

Sad times for Minnesota. The Mall of America has gone from 3 Pump machines to 0 over the course of the past 3 years.
Namco took over the AAA arcade during the conversion to Nickelodeon Universe or whatever the fuck its called now. The only music game left is a Supernova upgraded from a DDR 3rd K v2. The screen is broken, the pads are worthless and it's positioned to have glare on the screen for 75% of the day. After asking a tech about the condition, I was told I'm ignorant, arcade is harder than the home versions (I've only ever played DDR in arcades), the pads and screen are perfect and "the judges" are turned all the way up - which DDR has never had, timing windows aren't adjustable like PIU.
MoA's arcade days are officially dead. Hopefully AAA's Pump machine ends up somewhere nice.

Well... when can we expect this to be uploaded?

Got rid of a few remixes that weren't working. Everything else that was missing was put in. Expect it in the FTP in a few.
EDIT: For some gay reason, my Windows Explorer won't let me on the FTP. I type in the username, and I type in the exact password, and it says it's incorrect. Screw that I'll just post a DL link for you guys.
EDIT: < http://files.filefront.com/NX+2+ww....fo.html >

You need to add "ftp://ph-online.net/" into your "Network Neighborhood" and use the username and password, then it will let you into it. I'm not sure if Internet Explorer would let you log into the ftp.
EDIT: This is probably the best Pump PC Edit I've ever seen. Either tonight or tomorrow, while I have nothing to do, I'll probably upload it to the FTP.

i think i hit the point were i find pump boring.Fuck. any ideas on how i can start enjoying myself?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 02:59 CST :: 3/20/2008
This is not necessary. All you do is type it into the URL bar of WINDOWS Explorer (not IE) - AKA any Windows folder. You make it viewable using view-->toolbars.
I'll check this Pump PC out when I get my computer back tomorrow.
Hate to be cliched, but...
WorldMax has got me playing more Pump than I have in my entire life. I've already blown more on NX2 than I did for NX, Zero, and Exceed 2 combined. And I can't stop. It's addicting and ridiculous.
Posted by: Koop on 05:27 CST :: 3/20/2008
I must address that PIU is now a sad game without A Whistle promptly returning D:<
We have two of the 3 CB Massers, why cant we? XD
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 17:26 CST :: 3/20/2008
In response to Turkeslam
I agree WorldMax is awesome but the problems is
1. the owner hates me and refuses to listen to me
2. one player who works their is too afraid to ask the manager and has a loving affection with NX and does not want to part with it
3. the same persons nows the owner for a year and like him
4. another person just does not care to ask and most likely never will...cuz they don't care
I tried and Tried to get them to get NX2 but underneath all of the excuses the bottom line is they just don't want it. It's like a broken record so i just gave up in persuading them to get NX2
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 17:31 CST :: 3/20/2008
What's the phone number, I'll call. I'm very persuasive.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 17:33 CST :: 3/20/2008
lol they don't like persuavie people and the thing i used to work their for 2 years i the GM (sorry not owner) got angry when i quit for college
Posted by: Thanh on 17:37 CST :: 3/20/2008
Wow, you are still mad over me not trying to get NX2 (not that I or cpubasic have the power to get it or anything) and must address it on here.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 17:45 CST :: 3/20/2008
not angry, just answering the question with facts it's just NX is getting boring and WT is hard and i am no way trying to make you guys look bad by addressing it here in PH. No way in hell i would be mad becuase my location didn't get NX2 that would be childish. You and cpu have your reasons and i tried to convince you and it didn't work, not like i'm gonna start a riot and hate you forever over a video game and your actions. just going to bite the bulle, i mean hell i still have a decent working machine and pump to play on and that it gets fixed when broken.
well theirs always DQ

Just save up and buy your own machine.

Posted by: WayneC02 on 20:12 CST :: 3/20/2008
Namco arcade techs are all idiots. They're all about 17 years old and know nothing about what they're supposed to know about.
Case in point: When the Namco arcade in Lafayette got 2 ITG crap-o-cabs, we tried time and time again to convince them that those are NOT good cabs and to promptly return them for real dedicabs. The tech blatantly denied and refused it so we didn't go there again. Now they only have one shitty Supernova machine and nothing else worth playing. The place sucks dick and it's because they don't know what the fuck they're doing when it comes to anything that isn't a redemption game.
Also... Pump. NX2. Something relevant to the topic even though it's an off-topic thread. Whatever.
Posted by: Jared on 17:20 CST :: 3/21/2008
I guess we're pretty fortunate to have a non-17-year-old non-idiot in charge of our Namco Arcade. We still have an ITG crapocab but they keep it in the best shape they can and it's usually pretty good.
Posted by: WayneC02 on 17:55 CST :: 3/21/2008
Ours was HORRIBLE. The machine itself would lag and get unplayably offsync after about 2 songs and require a reset to fix it, so playing a full set to your best capabilities was near impossible. I once got lucky enough to get through Breaking Point though, I was pretty happy with that.
But yeah, it just pisses me off immensely when some snot-dripping know-it-all starts spouting shit because they think they know more than you since they work at an arcade. God forbid someone else be more informed.
Anyway yeah, you're definitely lucky that your Namco arcade isn't run and operated by people who know next to nothing about it in the first place.

anyway i think Nexcade needs to find a new publisher for pump becuase I believe AM is the most un-organized game company ever
Posted by: kpopgrrl on 00:45 CST :: 4/02/2008
AM owns the Pump It Up franchise. What you're proposing makes no sense. Makes as much sense as Bemani dropping Konami. (Actually, that makes sense...) Anyway, AM isn't as much the problem as the American distributors and arcade owners in general. I'll take Exceed SE for example, Andamiro left the North American game development and promotion to Mastiff. That was a bad idea, Mastiff killed Exceed SE not Andamiro. I don't think I'll ever forgive Mastiff for letting the best opportunity Pump had to break into this market slide and ruining the game for those who had never played it before.

Lmao, you guys and your World Max. Turns out that I will be one guy who will miss out on NX2. Probably I'll be playing the next mix to come. Until then, it's NX 1.05 for me at Peter Pan Game's, unless DnB's in Westbury gets their PIU cab back.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 19:09 CST :: 4/02/2008
1. they don't proofread the shit that they write, it took them 17 years to fix the word cancel
2. they don't so enough testing in their games. Take worldmax in the 1.20, how in the hell did they not find a glitch that huge? I mean jesus all they had to do was patch the fucking thing and i'm glad they deleayed it to fix but their shouldn't be a delay IF THEY WOULD TEST IT BETTER. also, adding files to the hard drive for everything to be unlocked? WTF, they should have made a patch to prevent that.
3. they rush all the new mixes out. Zero had glitches and missing stepcharts. NX has glitches. NX2 has glitches in Worldmax and missing stpecharts.
I know i am being nit picky and a dick about it but i wish they would at least test the game more before they before they release. and yes, glitches will occur but it will at least kept to a mininum
Posted by: valius on 19:14 CST :: 4/02/2008
I think she mostly has a problem with you mentioning that Nexcade should find a publisher, which IS impossible. Nexcade itself is an ANDAMIRO division, so there's no way they could find a different publisher, since they are ANDAMIRO itself. They aren't a separate studio or a second-party, but they're a first-party studio of Andamiro.
And yes, Mastiff ruined Pump It Up for the console market
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 19:24 CST :: 4/02/2008
new developer for future mixes(no, not the people that made Pro, i don't consider pro an offical pump it up mix)
Posted by: valius on 22:28 CST :: 4/02/2008
Nah, what they really should spend money on is a better QA division. The devs and stepmakers who are experienced in the game are much more qualified to continue pushing PIU in the direction it's been going. The biggest problem is mostly QA, who SHOULD be finding bugs more efficiently than they have been. Who knows what the QA staff at Nexcade are doing with their time? :\

How do you pronounce Banya
is it BAN-YAH

I think we shall start a poll about the pronunciation of BanYa.
Posted by: AlextheFox on 19:12 CST :: 4/03/2008
Bahn-yah. Does that mean you say YOH-pp and not Yahpp?
Posted by: Ledline on 19:45 CST :: 4/03/2008
it's pronounced Bahn-yah and yah-pp
bonya sounds retarded (plus it's alot easier to know actual pronounciation if you can read korean)
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 20:02 CST :: 4/03/2008
ok so it's BAHN-YAH?
we need conformation from a korean speaker
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 10:08 CST :: 4/04/2008
No conformation needed.
It is absolutely, positively 100% pronounced Bahn-yah. Yahpp is pronounced... Yah-p. Same thing.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 10:30 CST :: 4/04/2008
Posted by: Noodles on 10:41 CST :: 4/04/2008
People keep saying Yahpp is pronounced yhep-ee.
Posted by: Arturo on 12:19 CST :: 4/04/2008
Yhep-ee?!! That's a new one.
Ledline and Turkey are correct. Yahpp rhymes with "top," as in "To the Top," using a Pump reference.
If you were a rapper, you might rhyme BanYa off of "on ya" (meaning "on you").
I'm so dope, yo.
Posted by: CorruptedOne on 15:35 CST :: 4/04/2008
Pronounciation of BanYa?
And, for Yahhp.

everytime i wanna play a slow song on pump i get so pissed becuase THEIR IS NO FUCKING 5X MOD INT HE FUCKING GAME AND HOW MANY MIXES IS IT GONNA FUCKING TAKE FOR THEM TO REALIZE TO PUT THE FUCKING MOD IN THE GAME HERE WE ARE ON MIX 22 AND STILL NO FASTER SPEED MODS WHAT IN THE LIVING FUCK
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 16:50 CST :: 4/05/2008
They really don't need it.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 19:08 CST :: 4/05/2008
yes they do, DDR and ITG have it why can't they have it? and the majority of pump players would love to have a 5X speed mod
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 19:58 CST :: 4/05/2008
1. Pump isn't DDR or ITG.
2. Yes, we would love it. But they realize that we'd love it, so they leave it out to create a challenge for us.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 20:02 CST :: 4/05/2008
DDR has 4x then jumps to 8x last I played it.
And it is still unneccessary. There are maybe only a handful of songs that go below 100 BPM to begin with.
Posted by: Thanh on 20:45 CST :: 4/05/2008
DDR jumps from 3 to 5 and then 8.
ITG is a bit smarter and went 1-6.
PIU doesn't need 5x. Just learn how to read the arrows.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 09:55 CST :: 4/06/2008
A challenge yes but it is still stupid becuase i know i can easily S songs below 130 if I had the stupid Mod in the game. It's annoying as fuck when i can S Com'Back S with 10 greats and then can't S Ugly Dee becuase it's too fucking slow. i suck at slow songs a lot and i'm the kind of person that uses fast mods so i can see patterns better and it helps me a lot.
Some of us have the ability to read slow mods and songs. I Can't and still can't to this day, i can't even read 2X anymore
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 11:56 CST :: 4/06/2008
That's the challenge.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 13:18 CST :: 4/06/2008
yeah i know but sometimes it just really grinds my shit espically when i have one of those days
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 20:15 CST :: 4/06/2008
I started dancing games with DDR Mario Mix and that forced you to play 1x, so I have no troubles reading at a slow speed.
Then again I can do Ugly Dee 1x as well.
Posted by: Thanh on 20:18 CST :: 4/06/2008
Ugly Dee 1x is waay too much for me. Something like Hot or Greenhorn on 1x I can handle.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 20:27 CST :: 4/06/2008
For us, yeah it might be too much do to not being able to hear the music as well.
But eh, I can read crazy mods very well I guess. Must be why I can read 2x Arch of Darkness CZ as well...

Posted by: MoonLight129 on 20:28 CST :: 4/07/2008
Exceed 2 was a time when I met a lot of people and the pump scene was alive in ocala, it reminds me of good times with those people
fixed-i don't despertly want the game,i want the game, but not to the point where i am sitting in a corner saying i want NX2 over and over again
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 21:16 CST :: 4/07/2008
And the Pump scene isn't alive here all of a sudden?
That is one contradiction out of the many things you've said.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 21:22 CST :: 4/07/2008
Well i will gladly explain it to you
3 people, 2 that come rarely does not count as a pump scene noob
back when i started in 2005 we had 10 people playing the game and no i am not contradiction myself. this was a time where i was very excitied to play pump and was trying to play Crazy and NM. Hell, i had some friendly competition, a good FSer, and a dude that could NM (That was mind blowing for me at the time) and we had a lot more on and off people coming to play as well
but then as time went on they left town one by one and then you guys appeared.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 22:00 CST :: 4/07/2008
There is so much bullshit in that post that has nothing to do with anything and continues to contradict yourself.
Posted by: MoonLight129 on 23:04 CST :: 4/07/2008
it's not bullshit you fucking idiot before you came along their was more people playing the game and by the time you and thanh started to really play the game all the people left. now theirs just thanh, you stupid ass, and my fat self who play the game every week. It used to be when i started their were 10 people that at least had interest in the game. YOU were not around at the time to see this and I know for a fact WHEN you started those people left. idiot. guess you like to start trouble and then reply with a 2 page rant nobody cares about reading
P.S. not to be taken seriously

No, not FAEP 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, or any of the others. just plain FINAL AUDITION.
And the CZ chart, is what I'm wanting to discuss...How is it possibly rated a 14? There's Lv.18 NM's that I've gotten A's on(No, it's not the PA because of holds), but FA1 CZ is just a bitch. Spammed doubles in the middle of 16th runs, crazy, nutty patterns in the 2nd long 16th run? How can this song POSSIBLY be a 14?!

Posted by: cpubasic13 on 10:13 CST :: 5/04/2008
High Scores are kind of pointless. Thanh and I did Chimera CZ twice in one round just to put the manager's name as the #1 score. That is how often we actually care about scores, really. Least when we are all playing in a group.
Also DJ Ozma sounds familiar but I can't remember why. They could be similar because they do similar genres.

One could be a cover of the other or both are covers to a previously done song.

Faster Z NM should not be a "DANGER" rated song. Honestly, IMO, Feel the Soul NM is harder. I haven't A'd Feel the Soul NM yet, yet, I've A'd Faster Z NM 3 times and can make it down to the last 10 or so steps on stagebreak, and I can barely get a B with 30 something misses on Feel the Soul.

Posted by: Turkeyslam on 20:38 CST :: 5/12/2008
It is if you have a USB inserted. It's the default song. Not much of a tease because you don't have to do anything to unlock it granted you have the USB.

Why did they rename Sajahu; "Harangue" is such a worse name.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 02:47 CST :: 5/13/2008
Well, the title screen is still the same - Sajahu... and the song doesn't appear in WorldMax to determine whether or not the song's name is FULLY changed.
I know that they've had a temporary alternate title for it before. In Zero's MS, it was called "Lion's Roar", which is the direct translation.
Either way, Sajahu sounds 200x better, yes.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 11:28 CST :: 5/13/2008
And the Another Steps to Ugly Dee call it Agly Dee.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 15:39 CST :: 5/13/2008
So who wants to give me a USB card?
Or I guess sell me one, as a distant alternative. Mostly to play 1.5, World Max a distant second.
Nexus has a lock-in on the 25th, so having one by then would be good.
I guess it's possible Nexus'll get them, but one of the staff said they weren't able to get any.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 17:07 CST :: 5/13/2008

FAEP 2-1 & 2-2
Feel The Soul
I'll Give You All My Love

2-1: the song is ok & i really like the FS chart
2-2: awesome song with a good Another HD chart
Pumptris: cool song with too much of a difference between HD and CZ >.<
Feel The Soul: ok song...i love the CZ chart =D
I'll Give You All My Love: good song but the main things are the CZ and FS charts ^.^
Dr. M: great CZ chart =D
Chimera: i wish the Another HD chart was the arcade HD chart and CZ should be a tad easier

im curious to know what people really think of songs...

I think this is better suited in the random discussion topic. Merged.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 10:07 CST :: 5/18/2008
So we can only say what's good about your 7 favorite songs? or can we rant about others? The way you did that 2nd post made it seem like we can only do those 7... what if I don't like FAEP 2-1? Do I have to write what's good about it?

Did anyone notice that in the NX2 promo, the calory(sic) indicator shows four stages? Three and the bonus?
I wonder when in the development phase they changed it.

I wouldnt be too surprised if it were NX1s hardware on NX2 skin

My bet is on the last second.
Posted by: Matador on 10:01 CST :: 5/22/2008
2-1: Good song but hd/fs too easy cz/nm Too hard
2-2: As good as 2-2, Good Hd/Fs
Pumptris: I only play the fs on this one
Feel The Soul: Never played it
I'll Give You All My Love: Cz mainly, Nm No Bar still gives me creeps <_>
Dr. M: Average Cz/Nm
Chimera: Both hards

Has anyone ever heard of excer dance? I want to know how reliable it is. It is mainly for use in facilities and it uses metal pump pads and it is apparently made by pump.

That's Pro crap. Stepmania.
Posted by: The W on 15:08 CST :: 5/29/2008
oh well the kids wont know the difference. plus our group tried it out today its of course not as good as the machine but it is portable and fun for the kids and we got our moneys worth. It could use mods though.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 02:26 CST :: 5/31/2008
Played some more NX2.
Is it just me, or are the NX full versions really not fun at all, and just exhausting?
Dim Memory and Hold The Line both felt tedious, and never-ending, and neither were as fun as the regular versions.
Fire Full wasn't so bad, but it was still tiring.
I don't even want to imagine how bad LiaDZ and Beat of the War 2 Full must be.
And Higgledy Piggledy is entirely too awesome.
I'd like to know whose bright idea it was to make two of the new Taijis stupidly difficult, and have the third(and arguably the best) be ridiculously easy.
Posted by: Pawprint on 10:20 CST :: 5/31/2008
Hi, welcome to 2007.
Yeah, the NX full versions generally suck. I had high hopes for Lovely and Hold The Line and was very disappointed.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 10:29 CST :: 5/31/2008
LIADZ2 Full is hard but, unlike the ones you mentioned, it is fun for its difficulty. It varies itself a bit as well. For BOTW2, I think it is similar to the CZ except extended and a bit more varied as well to accomidate for the long length. I haven't played it as I've only seen videos of it.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 11:19 CST :: 5/31/2008
Realize that NX1 as a whole was a pretty unbalanced game. Lots of easy stuff, lots of insane stuff. But yeah, this is some old shit.
If you want to see easy and fun variants of Come Back Home and It's My Business, make the trek over to WorldMax. Also, Feel the Soul has a full version that's relatively easy to what it could've been but that unlocks in SS way later. Now that you have the ability to use your own USB you might see the game's Special Station content during its current life cycle now, haha.
Posted by: Thanh on 21:04 CST :: 5/31/2008
Liadz2 Full is cakewalk if you can turn. The step chart is pretty straight until the last violin rush. Stamina probably going to be is the biggest problem.
I haven't played BOTW2 yet but it looks like something I would play if I wanted to kill myself of exhaustion or practice drills.
Posted by: Avery on 02:59 CST :: 6/11/2008
I agree, Lovely and Hold the line are very tedious. I enjoy Fire, its tedious but at least it has the hold part which I consider fun .
Liadz2 is just beautiful, stamina is a problem but its a 19 for a reason, still very fun.
Botw2 is very draining, but doable. Its just all stamina, the NM is way worse too ><.
On a side note, Feel the Soul full cz would have to be my favorite full version.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 17:02 CST :: 6/13/2008
NX2 USB card gotten!
Do I have to do anything before I go to use it, or can I do it all from the actual machine?
Posted by: davyn on 17:16 CST :: 6/13/2008
The files are already on the drive when you buy it. Or in other words, no you don't have to do anything before you can use it.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 21:42 CST :: 6/13/2008
Well, shoot. The USB didn't work. At all.
Either 1p or 2p.
Is there supposed to be any indicator when the drive is reading it? I saw nothing, and the screen showed no signs of it working.
I'm assuming it means the USB drive isn't connected to the machine or something. Either way, this sucks.
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 21:55 CST :: 6/13/2008
Plug in your USB, get someone from the arcade to go into the operator menu, and theres an option in there to activate the USB port. repeat for both 1p and 2p sides.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 21:58 CST :: 6/13/2008
Unfortunately, it's one of those arcades where an outside company handles the machines, and the tech is the only one with the key, and he's only there once a week.
I left a message for him, so I hope he figures out how to get it working.
Also, how are the gates passed in World Max? Is it that they can't be moved beyond without a USB card?
Posted by: The W on 21:43 CST :: 6/14/2008
u could always unscrew the back and go inside if need to access it i think thats how people do it but i am not entirley sure
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 13:58 CST :: 6/15/2008
So without a USB, it's impossible to leave Rootina, right?
Posted by: Thanh on 20:33 CST :: 6/15/2008
So I randomly remembered the Random Step code and decided to play a whole bunch of Nightmares today with it on.
Most fun I've had with PIU in a long time. I can not drive myself to play competitively anymore.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 23:05 CST :: 6/15/2008
Random Step is pretty awesome to vary up some of the steps you've memorized.
It is kind of funny on harder songs though.
Posted by: miraisaki on 16:41 CST :: 6/17/2008
random is fun on most freestyle songs. And a bitch on most nightmare songs. It's also just bait to get people to laugh at you as well.
Posted by: ndre on 17:31 CST :: 6/17/2008
random step? I've tried another truth fs on random step.
cool.I'd say it is level 17
Posted by: Thanh on 06:35 CST :: 6/18/2008
I wouldn't go that high in difficult rating unless you had some crazy ridiculous patterns
I've always been stuck at 6 misses everytime I've played it now. (Which is like 7 or 8 times in the past 2 days).
RS on NM is a fun way to get your audience to drop their jaws.

IIRC, a lawsuit was filed in the U.S. but settled out of court and details haven't been publically discussed.
Andamrio beat Konami to the patent on parts of the cabinets, which is part of the reason I'm still slightlly confused as to how Konami was able to sue RoXoR.
SuperNOVA/2 have patent notices registered to Andamiro in the legal screen.

Do the math and find out how many seconds or minutes it takes to download 1MB. Then multiply that by 1387 for the seconds and divide by 60 to get minutes.

NX2 is finally here in the philippines!!!!!!!!
I knew the latest pump machine here when piumazter
told me about NX2 when he visited me at my house
I really got excited when he told ma that but i can't play
by this month because:
1) not enough money
2) busy in school
3) the mall where the NX2 machine is found is too far from my home
Posted by: ndre on 02:40 CST :: 7/03/2008
good luck in school then! That's what happened to me when NX2 arrived in my country. It was exam time

Why the hell do arcades ALWAYS put their dance games right next to some huge monstrosity like a Lost World sit down or a MadWave Motion Theatre?
Posted by: Kuhazan on 14:23 CST :: 7/12/2008
worst why do they line up a bunch of music games in one corner when there is plenty of room to spread them out and have them all feature very little volume then complain about them not making money after people complain about not being able to hear the music on a music game?
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 16:52 CST :: 7/12/2008
There isn't enough room at our arcade to warrant nothing by the machine. It is better for it to be there with the right side clear closer to the entrance than it is to either the left of the Lost World machine and between two games altogether.
If Lost World was to the right, people would go from the entrance of the arcade to the machine and exit out of Lost World onto the pad.
Posted by: Yeehaw McKickass on 21:20 CST :: 7/13/2008
I'm not saying that in certain situations a setup like that isn't the best thing possible, but a lot of arcades either surround a pump/deedeearr/itg machine with something like that or a madwave (right up against the pads) or shove the cabinet in a corner.
Good job on kicking that dude though.
Posted by: Noodles on 09:33 CST :: 7/14/2008
I saw it too. My mom was watching TV and she said "Hey alan, doesn't that look like the thing at Mc Donalds? (our Mc'D's has a Prem 1), and sure enough it was. Epic.

Posted by: cpubasic13 on 19:57 CST :: 7/14/2008
It is probably the machine in Orlando that is hailed as "The largest McDonald's in the world" and it is two stories.
It isn't a surpise, really.
Posted by: Noodles on 20:19 CST :: 7/14/2008
Yea, thats it. Now they have 3 pumps: Pro, Ex2, and Prem1.
and did you know over a quarter of the NX2's in the US are in florida?

Another 15% are in Chicagoland (6, one private and unreported).
Posted by: Noodles on 20:41 CST :: 7/14/2008

Geeze. How big is that place?
Posted by: PaRtYbOy on 21:09 CST :: 7/14/2008
They got rid of the Exceed 2 and Premiere 1 to get the PRO machine.
Remember, World's largest McDonald's. 2 floors, each floor is about the total sqare-footage of let's say, a 5 bedroom mansion. (Estimte. Well... let's just say its the size of a 2 story mansion. It's a pretty huge building.) 1st floor is the dining room/counter to order at, and theres about 10 games (and the PRO machine is down there) and the 2nd floor is the same size, but dedicated to only arcade games and a giant play area/kiddie slide/ball pit area.
Posted by: kpopgrrl on 21:18 CST :: 7/14/2008
"Chicagoland" refers to metropolitan Chicago, meaning, Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

If I ran a NX2 on a MK4 or 5, would it fry the board, just not work, or be sluggish?
Posted by: davyn on 23:16 CST :: 7/21/2008
It wouldn't work; NX2 hard drives are SATA, and only the MK6 and above have those connections.
Posted by: Matador on 22:32 CST :: 7/25/2008
Does the pump machine have an extra power supply?
3 Years ago, i was playing on a prex 3, and the energy when out on the entire arcade
Strangely, the pump machine was still working ( i was playing a song, i noticed the turnoff in the entire place ) but still, the pump machine stayed on for like 15 seconds after the energy when out, then it went off as well
but still, that was pretty weirrd ehh
Im saying thise because it happened in other places like 2 or 3 times and the pump machine went off right away when the energy on the entire place went out

What does the 'Lottery' option in WorldMax do?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 01:36 CST :: 7/26/2008
It gambles the amount of miles you'd normally get for the song at the end (each mission has a set amount it always gives). If you pass the mission and "hit the jackpot", you'll get 2x the amount of miles you'd get otherwise for completing that mission.
Posted by: the_peacemaker on 18:23 CST :: 7/26/2008
What do you need to do in WorldMax to unlock Caprice A-NM in the Special Zone? Or is it there from the start?
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 18:25 CST :: 7/26/2008
You should check my WorldMax guide. It'll tell you (in specific, page 12 in the booklet).
It's unlocked by clearing A Maelstrom [Full Song] - Whirlpool - Barharn.
The only charts that are there from the start are the useless A-FS's for Free and Snow Dream and the N/H/F for Come Back Home Full, VIP Full [and Tell Me Full in the Korean version].
Posted by: Thanh on 18:33 CST :: 7/26/2008
I recall reading that sometimes lottery also gives you some random mods to make the mission a little harder. Its never happened to me yet (out of the 25 times I played)

Posted by: Matador on 10:30 CST :: 7/31/2008
Maybe it has subliminal messages, Just like the kinda ish vocal part of gunrock <_>
But still, i dont think the forgot to cut it, since that part is completely different from the whole song, so its obvious they put it on purpose
Anyway, i want to know as well
Posted by: davyn on 10:34 CST :: 7/31/2008
It's "게임천국락실" or something like that, near Namyeon station. It has two Extras and one Zero, all SD machines. I also saw an NX2 SD in Insadong today, but I didn't try it. It was also called "게임천국".

I have to say one thing about Andamiro's Ranking System:
< WTF? >
Look at K3SHAN. W00+ W00+ for stupid number one for this song.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 11:38 CST :: 8/02/2008
That's a glitch that happens for some songs, but thankfully it's nothing more than attaching another song into the wrong section with an identical score to the song that actually belongs there. The score itself is correct.
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 22:47 CST :: 8/02/2008
I think our D&B's NX1 is finally time unlocking.
The Chicago Club Remix(which has the most evil tempo stops ever), Beethoven Virus Another, Dr. M Another, Groove Remix, Pop House remix, and a few others were all unlocked, and I know they weren't weeks before.
Unless someone tore World Tour up during that time, which I highly doubt.
If this was time unlocking, how far away is it from getting the Fulls open?
And was Chicago Club in NX2? I don't remember it offhand.
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 23:01 CST :: 8/02/2008
1) The first unlock opens the first 8 (out of 16) missions in each continent and their unlocks. 9999 plays. The second half unlocks at exactly double that, 19999.
2) Chicago Club Remix is not in Special Station in NX2 because of Bust Back and profanity and stuff. Bust Back is not in Arcade Station. BOTH of them, however, make a cameo in WorldMax (Chicago Club Mix is in Morigin).
Check the mix appearances list for NX2 appearance questions: < http://www.ph-online.net/html/ph_mixapplist.html >
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 23:26 CST :: 8/02/2008
Considering 1), then I guess I need a primer on World Tour, because I know there's some awesome charts there that I've never gotten to play.
I mostly want access to Lazenca NM and Valenti's beta NM.
I've never gotten past Beijing(screw Bee), Rome, Waikiki, or Santiago on my own.
Also, noticed a small error in that list; The Rap Act 3 is in Exceed 2, and maybe Zero also.
Posted by: sudocho on 00:06 CST :: 8/03/2008
I am curious about officially confirmed highest score of Bemera NM.how high it is? (with bar/no bar)
[I don't believe piugame.com ranking.]
Posted by: Turkeyslam on 00:17 CST :: 8/03/2008
There's about 15 errors on it, that being one of them. I've got them documented but I'm a bit lazy to fix it.
The Athens mission is the one you want. It has Loner NM, Lazenca NM, Guilty Conscience NM.
The Valenti beta charts (and Shake It Up beta chart) are in Pyongyang, in the second half.
Posted by: cpubasic13 on 12:00 CST :: 8/03/2008
Your machine must not get a lot of activity then. Least not like the one here. Ours have been time unlocked for months now for the first half. Shouldn't be too long before we get the rest of NX unlocked unless they happen to upgrade to NX2 or something.
...which seems unlikely given our arcade just got a brand new Deal or No Deal game. =\
Posted by: cj_iwakura on 13:49 CST :: 8/03/2008
Yeah, almost all the play at D&B is Training station. I think I'm literally the only person
