< WHAT IS DDR ? >
*****************

Dance Dance Revolution, (or DDR for short), is Konami's best selling 
series in which the player controls the game with their feet. A dance 
mat can be purchased for use with the PlayStation games, but it's more 
fun to play in your local arcade. The concept is that you step on the  
arrows of the dance mat when the corresponding arrows displayed on-
screen reach a grid at the top of the screen. Arrows scroll vertically 
up the screen and vary in speed depending upon the chosen song. There 
are a number of different songs to choose from, with each genre of music 
well represented. Half of the music is composed by Konami's internal 
sound teams, with the other half taken from Toshiba EMI's dance 
compilation series, Dancemania.

DDR is now up to the 5th main instalment in the series, and is still on 
top form. Improvements to this version include a totally re-designed 
game interface, a new cast of characters, smooth graphics running at 60 
frames per second as well as a totally new collection of songs.

< DOUBLE MODE >

This is the mode that requires you to dance on both dance mats at the 
same time. Therefor, the game becomes much harder.

< GAME MODES >
**************

PLEASE NOTE: The information in this section is based upon past releases 
as well as official information straight from Konami. The information 
will change once further details are released. Also, modes marked with 
an * will probably have to be unlocked.

GAME MODE: This the regular game mode. This time around, there is no 
link mode meaning that you can select your edit data in the normal mode, 
without having to change to a different mode in order to play the 
original steps. The possible styles of play are: Single, Versus and 
Double Modes.

DIET MODE: Enter your weight as well as the date, and the amount of 
weight you've lost will be calculated and recorded in your diet diary, 
which can be viewed in records mode.

LESSON MODE: If you've never played before, this is where to go. There 
are three lessons, each with 8 sections. Once you complete the first 7 
sections of a lesson, you must play a certain song. Completing a section 
is easy, just get as many perfects and greats as is possible.

TRAINING MODE: This mode is useful if you're having trouble with a 
particular song. It is possible to slow songs down, have the game make a 
'clap' sound whenever there's a note, beat or full bar.

*CHALLENGE MODE: Are you the DDR king? Then prove it! In this mode you 
must complete a set of 50 challenges ranging from simply getting a full 
combo on an easy song to getting a perfect on the hardest edit data 
imaginable. Be warned: This mode can get very frustrating! 

*ENDLESS MODE: Summon all of your energy to play as many songs as you 
can non-stop. You can play as any character featured in the game, male 
or female, and there's an option to take a break every few songs.

EDIT MODE: Tired of playing the same steps over and over? Edit mode 
allows you to create your own steps to any song in the game. You can 
then save your edit data to memory card and play it in the regular game 
mode or on the arcade version. To change edit mode into English 
language, simply choose 'option' then highlight the 4th word down and 
press either left or right on the directional pad.   

OPTION MODE: This mode allows you to configure the game settings such as 
game level, number of songs etc. It's all in English, so it's all pretty 
self explanatory.

*GALLERY MODE: This mode contains a collection of extra background 
pictures which can be displayed during gameplay. Each background must be 
unlocked individually.  

DATA BANK MODE: Can't be bothered with edit mode? Well don't worry, 
Konami has kindly included an extra 260 sets of edit data for your 
playing pleasure. Simply download the selected data to memory card and 
it will be available for use in the regular game mode or even the arcade 
version of DDR 5th MIX.  

RECORDS MODE: Want to keep track of your high scores, or how much weight 
you've lost through diet mode? Well then, this mode's for you.

ARCADE LINK: Are you a regular 5th MIX arcade player? If so, I highly 
recommend making a memory card file to take with you. With the arcade 
link data you can save your high scores from the arcade and view them at 
home, as well as your internet ranking top scores.  

NONSTOP ORDER: If your fed up of playing the same set of songs, nonstop 
order can be very handy. Choose which songs you want to play (up to 5), 
what levels they should be on and which variants will be used. Edit mode 
is also supported.

INFORMATION: This mode does what is says, giving you information of 
which songs you've unlocked as well as details on the various features 
of the game (in Japanese).

Midnite_Blaze@hotmail.com don't worry, I won't bite!

Q: Is Naoki a man or a woman?
A: Naoki is a man. He produces and writes most of the 'Konami Original' 
songs in the Bemani series. Naoki does not sing in any of his songs.

Q: The song 'Petit Love' by Smile.dk was strangely missing from DDR 
Extra MIX, will it be in 5th MIX?
A: It's very likely, so keep your fingers crossed!

Q: Do you know of any extra songs exclusive to the PlayStation version 
of DDR 5th MIX?
A: There will definitely be a remix of 'Dive' by Be For U, as well as a 
few trial songs from DDR MAX.

I'd just like to thank Konami for making the best videogame series on 
the planet, daring to be different in the first place, and choosing an  
excellent selection of songs.
