Pro never really supported custom songs without hacking the machine. I was never aware of anybody but Jason Dread performing that, either.

It was probably done as an addon, or possibly as a patch. It was in an official testing capacity, so I imagine the Pro team just prepared something to place on the machine.

Btw, Dread dropped out of the Pro 2 project. Not sure what did it but he said it felt like the right thing to do.


Personally? No love lost there. He's been innocuous at best and a troll at worst to me. In an official capacity, it's at his discretion what to say, but I'm glad he helped Pro get to where it is.

To reply to the original post, PIU Pro should work correctly with all MK6 hardware onward, though you'll need Revision 6 if you're using a SATA drive. Perhaps you could approach a local Pro machine owner, suggest they upgrade to Pro 2, and offer to buy the old hard drive/dongle? :P If you're clever, you can get the button I/O separately from a distributor and hack together an upgrade system with that.

I'm sure if you ask around (on sows or what have you), you should be able to find someone that has a Pro kit for sale.

Hmm that wouldn't do. I would need keyboard support to make things easier, and since I have a MK9 I would need a SATA support and a PRO HDD with revision 5.

Well guess I will need to think another way to do it.

I'm a huge fan of the work Dread did on the PRO series. He was one of the few step artists in PRO 2 (and the only in PRO 1) that actually wanted to include elements of K-Pump (instead of ITG-esque patterns) in the series. It's true that we (as a development team) had our quirks and problems, but Dread was only one of the culprits. What I'm trying to say is, each of us had our moments. It's tough to be on the same page with a bunch of people over the internet oppose to sitting down in the same room (especially when doing something like making a game). After knowing everyone on the team at a personal level, it's a lot easier to understand the actions that transition to their online conversations.

He's an awesome guy. He really loves the game, and it showed in every one of his charts. I'm disappointed to see him go, and I hope that in some point in the future I'm able to work on another project with him, or yet alone maintain contact.

Dread is far more chill in person then he is on the internet.  Also a beast at poker.

I've actually talked with him about his decision to leave the pro team, and without going into ANY details I can say I completely understand why he made that choice.
