Well my son passed a couple of the round 11 songs and then had difficulty with one of them and decided not to bother with the rest...

I know probably none of you care, but I must brag for my son... it's a parental right. Son's scores, in time for the "deadline":

Round 10
B Yo, Excuse Me Miss (Expert)
A 1, 2 Step (Expert)
B The Sign (Expert)
B I Don't Feel Like Dancin' (Expert)
B Summertime (Expert)
B Little L (Expert)

He did have to repeat most of them at least once to get a passing score... Starting tomorrow he will work on Round 11.

Partly, I can't do the jumps--first of all, it's just not comfortable (too much to bounce around right now). It also wears me out a LOT faster if I even TRY to do jumps.

And I like having workout mode on, so that I know how many calories I'm supposedly burning.

So, I'll probably just let Hubby work on unlocking things whenever he gets around to it. emoticon

Yeah, I suggested it that way (both kinds) so that all of the songs could eventually be on the list. Unlike during the challenge, if you don't do all of the songs, you won't be kicked out!!! And maybe you'll head over to groove circuit mode and unlock the mysteries of the game...

so you don't do the extra songs. Or perhaps it motivates you to unlock the songs...

Try the single player version. the first few challenges are really not too hard and surpriseingly addictive. The bad part is you can't turn off jumps. That's one nice thing about HP2, you can.

peer pressure peer pressure! lol

I'm thinking the list each week would have a few original (not locked) songs and one or two that have to be unlocked.
-------------

There's a problem with that--what about those that haven't unlocked much, or like me, who just plays on the workout mode and doesn't unlock anything? It'd be tricky to make someone work on a song they don't have. (That's why Lollifer was picking from the songs that don't have to be unlocked for this activity.)

I think it's the - key. It says somewhere on the main song page for sorting.

What would be helpful would be true difficulty levels. I think we found out durring this challenge that all flames are not equal. :)

I'm not sure which button changes the order. It's something on the wii-mote though as I've accidently done it before. I'm sure someone will come along who knows or I'll check it when I break out the DDR.

Also, does anyone know how to get my song list back in the original order? Yesterday it was suddenly in alpha order...

Killer long list there at the end!! lol...if the expert level wasn't enough.


It would be fun to do a weekly DDR list...although it might be easier to just list off the ones that don't have to be unlocked and have each person work through the list for the week---and each week work on getting better letter scores and/or up the difficulty (by adding jumps/hands/etc. or by going up a level). Any of the unlockable songs would be bonus.

Since you have them already Lolli, maybe just post them under a new list and we'll start our weekly (2x a week?) list. We'll just know that it was what you intended to torture us with! lol

Or post them here and I'll see steal them from you. :)

B unappreciated (Difficult)
B Lips Of An Angel (Difficult)
B Too Little, Too Late (Difficult)
A Call On Me (Difficult)
B Hot Stuff (Difficult)
B 99 Red Balloons (Difficult)

First two songs I did with jumps on. After a couple tries at 99 balloons I went ahead and turned off jumps. I felt like I was doing mile runs and my lungs hurt. Which is the reason I hate running :)

It bugs me that I had to turn jumps off, I may try them with jumps on but I wanted to pass it first.

ETA: What does the folks that have DDR think about doing some sort of consistant list of songs? Kinda like the weekly challenge that is stickied at the top of challenges? Nothing really competitive but something to give us focus for the dances and something we can complain about together?

Well, after laying on the couch all day yesterday, in deference to the mind-numbing tiredness my cold had given me, I went on a hike this morning. It felt fine. This afternoon I turned on the DDR for a couple of songs and ... it isn't going to work for me. I am out. I succeeded on 3 songs Friday before my lungs ceased to operate. That will be my limit until I am once again healthier. Thank you so much Lollifer for this fun challenge!!!

Junica, will you make it???? I am rooting for you!!!

btw, please either post tomorrow's list or sparkmail it to me for my son. He is really enjoying this too...

BLUEAQUARIUS, sorry to hear that. That is what my pad did. When I tried it a day or so later it was working again. Very aggravating.

JUNICA, thankfully the boxing is getting closer to done. Oh and that I don't have to attempt these songs on difficult. LOL I would never try to kill you as I need you not only here but leading The Castaways.

Well, that darn boy I live with got all but one on the first try!!! And I don't think Red Balloons is going to be my problem. I think it will be a couple of other songs. I can't remember which ones yet. Anyway, we were doing it with hands and gimmicks off. Easy scoring. Whatever that means.

Well I'm throwing in the towel - I still can't get better than a C on Disco Inferno and Far Away. I have found that turning workout step off just makes me get D's...maybe I'll get inspired after watching Grey's on my DVR and try again, but after all my hula-hooping I'm not sure I'll be able to get off the couch once I sit down!

Good luck to everyone else still trying to complete the list. And to those of you who have already done so - way to go!

I don't think this game is fair--other DDR games will rate you on what you have turned on/off (as in you can still get an AAA*** (or whatever the highest score is) with workout step on and everything else off), but this game makes it impossible (or near impossible) to get high scores without having everything on.

I'll have to try that grading easy thing. I've never even looked at that set of options.

main menu option---under the first option ("game", I think) is an option to switch to "easiest" on grading.

workout mode options---turn off jumps, turn on workout step.

game menu options---turn off gimmicks (I also turn off the hands, but that's up to you).

I have found that turning off gimmicks, at least in the first song, gave me more arrows.

And with all of this off, it is REALLY hard to get above a C, but I was finally able to do it on the first song. The trick to getting higher is that you MUST get mostly "marvelous" and "perfect"--even too many "greats" will keep it in the C range of scores.

But I found it easier to have everything off and strive for perfection than to turn everything on and strive for okay.



(as for the family--Hubby's tired from working, but I don't think he's sick...the little one has strep again...and I'll probably be into the strep in a day or two....yeah, I'm getting sick of this--it's been something every week or so since the last week in Aug.)

I always play with Jumps. I'm not sure what the song does if the jumps are off. If it just cancels the step then there could be troubles haveing enough of them. Jumps are hard tho.

Far away is really rough. it's got some wicked double jump combinations and the song beat is tricky. I passed it by the skin of my teeth.

Thanks to Junica, we have our first person to pass this list!

Margaret, I have no advice as I could never clear these songs myself. But I am keeping fingers crossed for all the dancers.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone (and for giving us a little extra time Lollifer).

Although I wouldn't exactly say that what I am doing is dancing, it looks more like I have stuck my finger in an electrical socket and my feet have gone totally spastic!

I cannot get any higher than a C on Far Away and Disco Inferno and when I turn workout step off I can only manage a D...not sure I'm going to make it any further. I've tried every combination to get a higher score - hands on/off, jumps on/off, workout steps on/off, gimmicks on/off...so frustrating when I'm able to hit every step and still can't get past the C! I'll give it one more try tonight (in between hula-hooping for Gilligan's Gang!).

Yikes!!!!

B I Don't Feel Like Dancin' (Difficult) 2x
B Disco Inferno (Difficult) 2x first time i've B'd it
A Buried a Lie (Difficult) 1x
B Nothing But You (Difficult) 2x another first B
B Far Away (Difficult) i lost count, was a D before
B Rhythm Is a Dancer (Difficult) took about 6 times. again it was a D when I started.

Far Away gets my vote for evilist song on this list. Almost all of these started out below a B when I started.

Jumps on, gimmicks off, hands off.

ETA - Feel better Mommy_T and household. and the secret to doing these songs is just alot of steps that hit right on. Goods and lower are no-nos.

Is there a secret to this set of songs...I can not get past a c on any of them. I sometimes hit all the arrows getting like 102 combos and still get a c. This is very frustrating. Anyway I will probably not make it through to the next round due to not being able to dance tonight. Anyway it has been fun...good luck to all who are left.

I'm hoping it's not strep again....my little one is sick too, it seems...and she had a light rash around her upper chest tonight. She's going to the doctors AGAIN in the morning...since we got strep over labor day and season changing stuff...we've been having some sinus/allergy stuff, and her ears were messed up after the strep to put her on antibiotics again....it seems that we're just getting sick again.

and I'm sick of it all!! lol.

I'll keep trying tomorrow--I really am NOT ready to throw in the towel yet, although I am getting to my limits, I don't think I'm there yet--and that excites me!!!

B - I Don't Feel Like Dancin' (Difficult)
C - Disco Inferno (Difficult)
- Buried a Lie (Difficult)
- Nothing But You (Difficult)
- Far Away (Difficult)
- Rhythm Is a Dancer (Difficult)


first song---I got a 29....number score and a 151 combo at the end and got a C the first time and then a B the second time...not that much different, unless I got more accurate on them.

I broke down and set it to the "easiest" grading mode--and turning off gimmicks seemed to give me a few more steps, at least in the first song.

I think I'm giving in for the night...I've danced for 56 minutes and burned 232.177 calories...and I'm still getting NO where. (usually I could get something, but just not tonight.)

Just what I need - more arrows so I can get boo'd a little more!

Thanks for the advice Mommy_T - I'll try that later on and see if I can anything better than a C!

I know that I had to turn "workout step" off on a basic song (one of the really hard ones last Monday) to get a high enough score--it helped having more arrows to hit. Otherwise, just try hitting them more accurately---the higher the "boo/good/great/perfect/marvelous" the better the scoring!

OK, why is it that even when I hit every step on Disco Inferno, which give me 100+ combos I still can't get higher than a C?

I tried turning hands and gimmicks back on thinking they might give me some extra points, but that didn't work either!

Well, my son passed the whole list before going off to school this morning. I only passed two of the songs. If there was any doubt before this, he is definitely better at this than I am... [of course, I was wearing a swimsuit at the time, ... extra heat, restriction, ... what else???]

Haven't got the others yet, but did have to turn gimmicks off and workout step on---just can't do the half beats that good!! (did try though--got the first two with them still on/off)

(post 2)
I think I'm going to try the last one a couple more times--I think I'm getting better at it, although I got the B with a slightly lower score than with a C score!!
