Dance Clone v0.6 – PS3

Here is the first look at the inexplicably popular on Wii but extremely buggy and consequently abandoned and now remade Dance Clone. It isn’t much of a game yet. But I’m a lot more excited about working on it now that I have a fresh start and I’m going to be releasing it for both Wii and PS3 (starting here with PS3). So you can expect updates in the future. I’ll try to even get more done before this months psx-scene deadline (you can already vote for it here).

It controls with the directional buttons. If anyone has a PS3 dance mat (the one that came with Dance Dance Revolution for PS3, a third party mat or even a PS2 dance mat with a converter) then I would greatly appreciate it if you would test it out. I don’t have one and I think it might work but I’m not sure how the buttons on it map or even if it will be possible for me to support them.

It was tested on Rogero’s 4.40 CFW.

As an added bonus, here is a resigned copy of my game Avoidance that (thanks to z3roblu3’s CFW 4.xx Resigner Script) will now play on newer custom firmware (just like Dance Clone). Though I’m sure somebody else has probably re signed and re posted it by now.

You’ve probably noticed that a LOT of the links around here have died. To rectify that I’ve begun uploading all of my stuff to PlatonicRobot. You can now go there to find the most recent versions of everything I’ve ever released for Wii.

Dance Clone v0.5 – Windows

Here is v0.5 of Dance Clone for Windows.

Unlike the Wii version it doesn’t crash anymore when importing any Step Mania songs. I don’t know why the problem still persists with certain songs when running the game on Wii but it doesn’t seem to be a problem anymore here. So its just an extra reason to do your importing ahead of time on your computer…

Dance Clone v0.5 – Wii

Here is a small update to Dance Clone.

I made some changes to that new score page (the one that you see when you complete a song) and now it actually records your high score for each difficulty mode of each song. Those recorded high scores also gets displayed at the difficulty selection screen.

The scoring system is different from how it is in the official DDR games and StepMania. You get 7 points for every step that you get a good rating for, 10 points for every step you get perfect with and you get extra points equal to however long your longest combo was. Your final score though is a percentage based on how many points you got out of how many points you could have gotten.

It might seem like a pointless feature but something else that is new is that you can now fully navigate the home menu and the in game menu using multiple wiimotes. When it comes to actually playing the game though you still use the dpad on the first wiimote, a classic controller connected to the first wiimote or a gamecube controller or dance pad plugged into the first gamecube controller port.

Aside from that its just small fixes and things. Not much has changed.

Don’t forget to go grab the alternate skin if you want to change the look of the game.

DanceClone: reskinned

KYOA5 posted this great skin for Dance Clone on a little while ago and I liked it so I want to share it with all of you.

There where some changed in v0.4 relating to a few image sizes (the background is 640×480 now which is really what it should have always been anyways since that is what resolution the game is). So I quickly made the necessary changes to scale for the two sprites that needed the update but the awesome new skin is otherwise untouched.

To use it just copy the image files into the DanceCloneMediaGame folder in place of the games regular images.

Dance Clone v0.4 – Windows

Here is v0.4 of Dance Clone for Windows.

Its mostly the same as it is on Wii but not perfect. At least on my computer the music seems to get out of sync with the steps. On the upside bringing up that home/pause menu (hit the Esc key) pauses the music which doesn’t work with the Wii version.

But anyways I’m assuming most of you aren’t going to actually be using this to actually play the game. If your looking for a music game on PC then there are probably better alternatives. But now you can use this to importing / convert all of your Step Mania step files from the comfort of your computer before taking them over to play with Dance Clone on your Wii.
