    I have searched and searched and could not find a custom disc like guitar hero III mods and hacked discs for dance style games.... It would be nice to convert audio and steps from lets say DDR MAX 2 and or 3rd Mix, Extreme 1/2 Etc..and so fourth even step mania songs.... or whatever you desire. Any-good starting points to hack at the disc and start injecting & replacing steps/videos/songs? any good material on this?

    I understand hottest party wasnt a true ddr game and lacks arrow mods like in ps2/ps1/arcade version but the steps and audio track should still work just fine since its just a player and a nice skin....

    Besides Hottest Party, what other DDR games are there for Wii that work with 3rd party dance pads? My gf is really into this garbage and I want extra bonus points. Thanks.

    unless this guy can continue what he worked on...he didn't release any code modification it would be nice if he did....
    save some time...

    I checked out the svn...

    http://svn.stepmania.com/svn/trunk/

    however looking though it seems to be 3rd party library hell. alot of stuff from the looks of it would need to be totally rewritten.
    however a good thing is that libpng ,lua is ported to wii and may help in the porting process

    I looked at the disc myself, and its definitely something we wouldn't be able to customize [​IMG]

    The audio? Maybe (I think its the same as Brawl's audio), but I doubt we would be able to make the same chart files the game uses (which I don't recall seeing :wtf:)
