Current status: No suitable space to setup the ddr area, No DDR Hardware.

Equipment

We're still lacking:

  • Metal Pads (at least 2)
  • Computer dedicated running StepMania
  • television screens (attached to the StepMania computer)
  • video projectors (so that not everybody has to crowd in front of the small screens)
  • computer and monitor if we can't get any TV screens

Where can i get ...

DancePads?

You can get Dance Pads sometimes in a Media Markt or Toys R Us.
There are also several online shops offering pads (unsorted list of shops i know):
Lik Sang (also shipping from europe) Lik-Sang.com Out of Business due to Multiple Sony Lawsuits
Play Asia
Futuremax (specialised in DDR products)
Playbetter
Ebay
Playdeluxe

Adapters?

Check out the stores listed above. Make sure the adapter is capable of mapping buttons not only axes and is capable of using several buttons at the same time (or you want be able to do combinations of up/down,left/up, ...). If you are playing on a Playstation or own a Pad with USB connector there is no need for an adapter. You can find a list of adapters with compatibility report at http://www.stepmania.com/wiki/USB_Adapters

Software?

Stepmania is open source software running on Windows/Linux/Mac and can be found at http://www.stepmania.com or https://sourceforge.net/projects/stepmania/
PyDance cant say anything on this due to the fact that that i never tried it.
Playstation owners can get the original games by Konami

Songs/Stepfiles

You can buy the original Playstation releases. If you lost your disc and cant find you backup check out your favorite P2P network or the DDRUK Download Section. If there are still any problems finding songs dont hesitate to contact me.
