Hello community, I hope you are all well.

I've been working on a project for a while to bring DDR Characters and DanceStages in real 3D, not videos, to Stepmania.

At the moment, I have gotten some characters from DDR X, X2 Ace, all the Rinon including Replicant D-Action and some PiX from SuperNOVA.

Here is a sample of what I did.



Quote
CHANGELOG:

24092021: Added Geisha-Zukin, Gus (X and X2) and Jun (HP2)

28082021: Minor update (August): Includes corrections to speaker textures in the Boom stages, and three new motions.

They only work under the themes of Curilang (who also worked on this project).

With the time and reception of the project, I will add small things, especially new choreographies to the characters.

I hope this project is to your liking.

Any questions, please let me know 😁

See you later, alligator ✌🏻

I just tested this. Whoever did this:

I'm super duper IMPRESSED.

Edit: hoping to have working DDR X song-exclusive dance animation, and movie embedded in stage too.

It's working in SM 5.1 b2 too.

This looks wonderful! Just wish there was an option to turn off dancers for songs that have background scripts.

That dance routine isn't unique to that song.

This looks real amazing, just a couple questions.

1. Are the Dance Routines from DDR Ultramix - DDR A20 included in this including the one that has been removed ever since DDR X AC or do the characters only do dance routines from the Wii games?

2. This might be less of a possibility due to differences between graphics, but does this mod also support the old characters from the obscure PC version.

This is amazing! Great work! How do you set it up to have multiple dancers like in your video?

Only in Event or Home mode. I strongly prohibit this from being used for commercial or profit-making purposes. Otherwise, no problem 😁

Thank you very much 😁. On the other hand, I don't think I can work on extracting official choreographies from AC or CS, it's almost impossible to rip them.

Thank you very much. Answering your questions.

1. The dance routines are not from DDR, none of them, on the wiki says so. I don't found any way to rip the AC or CS choreographies, unfortunately 😕. If I ever manage to do so, I'll share an update in the Git.

2. It is possible to use old characters, preserving their old routines. I don't suggest doing it, but you can do it, of course.

Thanks a lot 😁😁😁. Well, actually, that was just for the trailer 😅😅😅. But seriously, I don't think it's an option to consider, as it leads to excessive resource consumption

Oh my god, this is the best thing I've seen for Stepmania in a long time. Thank you, thank you, thank you for putting so much effort into this! 😭 This is so impressive! The fact that retro characters work in this too is unexpected, but makes it all the better for me. It also makes me wish the CCR team left any documentation on ripping the classic character models; Would love to play as DAM-DDR's Nightmare Konsento on a DDR A stage.

What are your feelings on people implementing this in other themes? Starlight obviously comes to mind, but this could open up so much for original content and theming. :0

Once again, thank you so much for all your hard work with this!

It says on their github that you just need to ask before implementing.

And I hope someone does soon. The work that's been put into the DDRA theme is great, it's a lot better than it used to be and I really like the blue A20 Plus option as I'm a sucker for blue themes to the point that I actually have an ITGPC install set up for when I want to play ITG content because that PC/PS2 ITG1 theme is slick. But it's such low resolution, even the text on the song select screen is blurry and the cut outs in the life bar are so jagged, that theme really deserves to be in a higher resolution like Starlight is. Even on my 1080p monitor it looks bad, and that's only highlighted by how absolutely fucking brilliant the stages and characters are. Also I love courses and I don't see anywhere to get to them in the DDRA theme, so even if it was 1080p or higher I would be switching back to Starlight.

I'm really not trying to shit on this, the characters and stages look fucking outstanding. This is really impressive and I absolutely love it. The rest of the theme just uses really low quality assets and it makes the work that's been put into replicating DDRA look blurry and muddy.

Also, for the theme, after selecting a song if you try using up or down to select a difficulty it goes back to the song select but with the difficulty icons still there. Like you can still scroll songs with that pulled up. Selecting difficulty with left and right only scrolls through the difficulties in the spot on the left that lists them all, it does not scroll through the big difficulty icons like it does in DDRA. Not sure if this is the place to bring that up or not, but it's really the only thing I've found wrong with how the theme functions.

Edit: So I did some experimenting and I turned high resolution textures back to AUTO. I know the github page says to turn it off, but this fixed almost all of the blur issues with the theme. Still has some jagged edges but what 720p theme doesn't? And this had no negative impact on the dancers or stages that I could find. Is this a recommendation for low spec machines or something? I have a decent enough rig (it's the old NZXT starter pro with the 5700XT, before the changed to the 2060), maybe if you're on something with integrated graphics you get really bad lag without setting high resolution textures to OFF? I played like 5 songs with no issues (plus another one with a video to see if that overrides the dancers and it does). Either way, it works like a champ for me with high resolution textures set to AUTO and the theme looks pretty good for a 720p theme this way. Perfectly readable text and the dancers/stages look brilliant as I said earlier.

It really just needs this fixed and it will be as close to perfect as it can be without course modes.

Hello Saibot, I hope you are very well.
Thanks for your comments on this theme, I know the issues that this theme has and sorry for not mentioning the problems, but the theme is still in progress. The problems of the theme will be fix in the future, but now, enjoy the good things that the theme has, please.
Btw, we wrote in the Github that you have to use the High-res textures in Force off, we said that because when you are playing in D3D, the theme forces to crash, I don't know why the theme do that but really, I've been putting all my effort trying to fixing all the problems. If you are playing Stepmania in opengl, you can use the theme in High-res textures Force on if you want.
We re-write the Github, thanks for telling us!

Turning high res textures back on really did fix 99% of my issues with the theme. As far as 720p themes go it does look very nice and it even implements things I haven’t seen in any other theme like making the other folders disappear while in a folder. I assumed Stepmania couldn’t do that because no one else had used it, you really do have a great theme and I hope I didn’t discourage you.

Translucent video stages such as Video Black/White, Replicant, and Big Screen are included. They will only work if the video file of a certain song does not exist, and will show a small preloaded animation on stage, or the jacket of the song.
