  First of all, thank you for reading this FAQ!!!  I kiss you!!  I liek milk!!

My name is Eric, I'm 20 years old, and I've been playing Dance Dance 
Revolution since early 2000.  I started with Dance Dance Revolution 2nd 
ReMix on the Sega Dreamcast, yet I didn't take the game very seriously.  
"Heavy mode" as it is now known was ridiculous to me, the word 
"catastrophic" was synonymous with "impossible."  I lost interest in the 
game, and along with the Dreamcast, dust began to collect. 

In February of 2003, I stopped by the local bowling alley with a 
group of friends for a night of what is expected to be done at a bowling 
alley.  However, upon noticing a DDRMAX2 7th Mix machine located in the 
pool hall area of the establishment, I recalled the awkward fun that was 
had on the Dreamcast, and decided to give it a go.  Considering I had 
never played a game of DDR on an actual dance pad before, my reflexes 
were way off, and I quickly failed my first song.

The interest stayed put in my head, though, and I felt compelled to 
come back for a second session, and a third session, and a fourth, and 
many more.  I was amazed to see what some of the regulars could do, and 
after being taken under their collective wing, I progressed.  These days, 
there really aren't any songs that give me any trouble.  Not only have I 
become a self-proclaimed "dancin' master" in eight months' time, but I've 
also gone from somewhat-anorexic to disgustingly-anorexic.  And that's all 
I have to say about that. 

Speaking of looking sickly...

A NOTE ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS:

Playing Dance Dance Revolution regularly will force you to lose weight, 
whether you have weight to lose or not.  Once you proceed into the higher 
difficulties, DDR becomes an extreme cardiovascular workout.  It's comparable 
to sprinting for 90 seconds and coming to a complete stop numerous times.  
While it's more expensive than simply sprinting up and down the sidewalk, it's 
definitely more fun and enjoyable.  A friend of mine has lost NINETY-FIVE 
pounds to this date solely from DDR exercise, and he's still going.  I lost 
around 25 pounds in my first six months, from 175 to 150.  I'm 6'3" and I look 
just plain horrible.

FAQ Introduction                   |
------------------------------------

Simply put, this is a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for Konami's 
Dance Dance Revolution EXTREME 8th Mix (or DDREX for short) which was 
released in Japan for the Sony PlayStation2 on October 8th, 2003.  The game 
is currently only available in Japan, for use on Japanese PlayStation2 
consoles.  It is currently unknown if Konami of America plans on creating an 
American version of the game. 

In this FAQ, you can find plenty of information regarding DDREX exclusively, 
for both the arcade release and the console release.

About DDR EXTREME                  |
------------------------------------

DDR EXTREME, also known as 8th Mix, is not really the 8th coming of 
Dance Dance Revolution.  A handful of "Konami side projects" have released 
bearing the Dance Dance Revolution name, such as DDR Solo (a version of DDR 
containing 6 directional arrows,) club mixes, "plus" mixes that were released 
for 3rd, 4th, and 5th Mix, and a plethora of "remixes" made for home consoles 
(including but not limited to DDR Konamix, 2nd ReMix, etc.)  Disney has even 
allowed Konami to release some versions of DDR bearing many Disney trademark 
songs (Disney's Rave, etc.) 

DDR EXTREME boasts the highest song count of any DDR release - both in the 
arcade and on all consoles - at 230 and 111, respectively.  Konami has also 
included songs from various other Bemani games (Bemani is the name for 
Konami's music-related games) including Beatmania, Para Para Paradise, Dance 
Maniax, Keyboard Mania, Pop'n Music, Guitar Freaks, Drum Mania, and Mambo A 
Go-Go (Gamelan de Couple!!!)

How To Play                        |
------------------------------------

The concept is simple; directional arrows will scroll from the bottom of 
the screen to the top, in the format of LEFT-DOWN-UP-RIGHT, choreographed 
to the steady beat of the music.  Your job is to step on the arrow as it 
rises and reaches a stationary set of translucent arrows, found just before 
the top edge of the screen.  For each step you are given, a judging scale 
is applied to your accuracy.  Hitting the arrow dead-on with the beat 
results in a "PERFECT!!" (or "MARVELOUS!!!" if you're playing a Nonstop or 
Oni course.)  Closely hitting the step on beat results in a "GREAT!," 
slightly off-beat steps will receive a "GOOD," and steps that aren't quite 
on time will receive either an "ALMOST" or a "BOO!"

If you see two arrows scrolling on the same level, this means you will 
have to jump and hit both arrows at the same time with your two feet.  This 
technique can only be explained so well, as it takes simple practice to hone 
your reflexes to the point of successfully landing multiple complex jumps in 
a row.

-----------------------------------+

As you progress into higher difficulties, some songs may include half-beat 
notes, or 8th steps (whose name derives from counting the measures in each 
beat of any given song.)  In most Light mode songs, the overall step pattern 
will be composed of entirely 4th note steps, which mean a step will land on 
one of the four counts in each measure of the beat.  With 8th steps, you'll 
find yourself putting in twice the effort to hit the arrows, as they will 
require you to step twice as fast.  

16th notes are also included, and are commonly referred to as "gallops."  
Songs such as "Cowgirl" and "Frozen Ray" have these steps in them, and 
literally require you to gallop into the steps to successfully hit them 
(unless you'd prefer to quickly step into them, which isn't recommended.  
See the "Gameplay Strategies" section.)  One song, called Tsugaru, even 
has 32nd steps!  With 8th, 16th, and 32nd steps, you'll notice that the 
steps become progressively harder to read, as well as execute.

-----------------------------------+

A new addition that first appeared in Para Para Paradise and DDRMAX are 
freeze arrows.  These steps, which are depicted by a green and yellow 
outline, require you to execute and hold any given step for a predetermined 
amount of time.  Naturally, two freeze arrows scrolling on the same line 
require you to jump into them.  If two jumping freeze arrows end prematurely 
on one arrow, you are allowed to remove your foot from this step and use 
it to hit progressing arrows without receiving an "N.G." grade on the 
overall freeze.  Properly executed freeze arrows receive a grade of "OK!"  
It should also be noted that missing and/or failing a freeze step penalizes 
you much more than missing an ordinary step.

Gameplay Strategies                |
------------------------------------

In some of the harder songs, you will notice that the steps will become 
increasingly difficult to hit without failing or becoming tired.  There are 
a few strategies involved to preserving your stamina and honing your sight-
reading skills.
  
CROSSOVERS/PIVOTS

"Crossovers" or "pivots" are arguably an essential technique to learn and 
master in DDREX.  While some of the best players I know tend to avoid them 
like the plague, I find some songs to be insanely difficult and tiring 
without this staple move.  As the name suggests, some strings of steps may 
require you to "crossover" or "pivot" your body in either direction in order 
to hit them.  An example:

In Can't Stop Fallin' In Love (Speed Mix) Heavy, the first run begins as 
LEFT-DOWN-RIGHT-DOWN-LEFT-DOWN-RIGHT-DOWN, in 8th step format.  You have two 
options:
    1.) tire yourself out while facing forward the entire time, hitting the 
        arrows with whichever foot you deem best, or, 
    2.) cross your body over so you are facing right, using your left foot to 
        hit "left," right foot to hit "down," and bringing your left foot 
        forwards to hit "right," while the right foot stays above the down 
        arrow, ready to hit it.  Repeat this process for the next string of 
        LEFT-DOWN-RIGHT-DOWN.

Once you improve upon this technique, you'll find it much easier to 
detect and nail crossover steps by rotating your body to the left and to the 
right.  Expect to see variants of the LDRDLDRD step pattern using the up 
arrow as well.

-----------------------------------+

GALLOPS

To "gallop" is to skip into a 16th note that appears directly after a 4th or 
8th note, in order to maintain your composure and to preserve stamina.  Many 
of the steps in the song "Tsugaru" are gallops (the segment following the long 
freeze near the beginning, for example.)  Galloping isn't as difficult as many 
people make it out to be, however, detecting oddly-placed gallops in some songs 
can be a hassle without Solo mode on.  To gallop, firmly tap your foot used 
to hit the first step down into the arrow and levitate off of it quickly, in 
order to shift your weight to the opposite side of your body, and to land your 
second foot into the next step.  

The timing that is necessary to gallop is very similar to skipping - imagine 
your first step into a skip to be a common 4th note, where as the following 
two steps - your first foot skipping across the ground and your second foot 
landing - to be the 4th note following by a 16th note (or in terms, a gallop.)

-----------------------------------+

PERSEVERENCE

In most Heavy songs, it is entirely necessary to pace yourself.  The Heavy 
difficulty can be very exerting.  Pay close attention to the arrows, and try 
to relax yourself as much as possible during the entire song.  Playing on the 
ball of each foot is one of the best ways to play as far as endurance goes.  
Try to avoid playing entirely flat-footed, if necessary; roll your foot 
downward in order to meet the pad with your heels.

Any time a song has constant 4th notes, use this time to breathe and relax.  
Heavy songs do not stay calm for long, and in new songs, you'll never know 
what is coming next.

-----------------------------------+

CONFIDENCE

Be sure to stay as confident as possible while playing.  This will work wonders 
for your concentration and accuracy.  Don't worry about how you look while 
playing, or what others think of your performance.  It's important to stay 
focused, but not overly attentive.  If you miss a step or two, let it slide.  
Don't worry about failing, and in most cases, you won't.

The Do-Nots List                   |
------------------------------------

DO NOT STAND IN THE MIDDLE!  Despite what the Beginner mode example 
dancer may encourage, standing in the middle of the pad is "extremely" 
unrecommended. You are not penalized for standing on an arrow or hitting 
an arrow which does not currently correspond to a required step, so 
don't be afraid to let loose and run your legs all over the pad.

DO NOT BE AFRAID TO USE THE BAR!  continued in the next Do-Not...

...DO NOT USE THE BAR!  "bar-raping," as it is commonly put in my area, 
is utilizing the red bar located at the very rear of the dance pad to 
support your weight and supply extra upper-body strength to your legs, 
allowing you to "float" over the pad and decrease stamina usage.  This 
method of gameplay is actually recommended to beginning players, but ONLY 
to get a feel for the gameplay itself.  DDR veterans frown upon excessive 
"bar-raping," claiming that you haven't truly conquered a song until 
you've passed it without touching the bar.  Experienced players may find 
themselves needing to support their weight on the bar for some of the 
harder songs, but I suggest to only use this technique to build your 
stamina to the dependency of the song.  Once you can beat a hard song 
using the bar, try it without touching the thing.

DO NOT STOP "DANCING"!  You haven't failed until you've failed.  Don't 
think you've failed, keep going.  If you don't think your legs can do it, 
keep going anyway.  It is the only way to increase your overall skill 
level, so do NOT stop dancing.

DO NOT LAUGH!  Seriously, to many people, there is at least ONE song 
that may encourage you to laugh at how ridiculous it is.  For me, this 
song is Gamelan de Couple.  Depicted in the background are a bunch of 
drowsy-looking cacti with human features, shaking maracas in their 
"hands."  Once I catch a glimpse of these things in my peripheral vision, 
it never fails to make me laugh and screw up to some extent.  Keep focused 
on the scrolling arrows and take the game seriously (up to a point - please 
do not damage any equipment or yourself in a fit of rage!)

Gameplay Options                   |
------------------------------------

GAME MODE:  Play the original arcade-version of DDREX.  Single, Versus (2-
player,) and Doubles (one player using all eight arrows) play are available.
Difficulty settings include Beginner, Light, Standard, and Heavy mode, 
whereas Nonstop (play four songs without stopping) and Oni mode (play a 
series of songs with a limited lifebar) are available as well.  Getting 4 
non-Marvelous/non-Perfect/non-Great/non-OK steps in Oni mode per song 
results in failure of the course.

DIET MODE:  DDREX will estimate how many calories you have burned while 
playing songs from the game.

LESSON MODE:  Three sections of instructions will help you gain a better 
feel of the game, while letting you interact with the lessons by dancing on 
the pad.

TRAINING MODE:  Play any currently-unlocked song in the game using the 
modifiers of your choice.  Each measure is divided up in the song, and you 
can let DDREX assist your timing by adding in claps per beat.  Every song 
can also be slowed down to one fifth its original speed.

EDIT MODE:  Edit or create entirely new steps to any currently-unlocked 
song in the game.

OPTIONS:  Adjust sound, controller settings, memory card settings, game 
options, graphic options, diet mode options, and dancer options.

RECORDS:  Check your personal records set on any song in the game, for 
any difficulty.

INFORMATION:  A vault of accomplishments that you have to unlock that 
describes each song, each nonstop course, each dancer, and each oni course, 
amongst other things.

ENDLESS MODE:  Play DDREX in a literally endless fashion.  Gameplay is 
similar to Nonstop mode, except the music really doesn't stop this time 
(until you fail.)  Breaks can be taken after playing x amount of songs, at 
your discretion.  For every next song, the judging difficulty increases 
(meaning a missed step will hurt you more than the previous song.)

CREDITS:  A special unlock that lets you watch the "true" ending video 
of DDREX.

Difficulty Ratings                 |
------------------------------------

THE FOOT SCALE: Songs are rated on a scale of feet, with one being the 
easiest, and ten being the hardest.  The first ten-foot song appeared in 
DDRMAX, and is called MAX 300.  Ten flashing feet means a particular song 
has surpassed the ten-foot ranking, and the first song to adopt this 
difficulty was Paranoia Survivor Max in DDREX.

THE GROOVE RADAR: five factors determine the shape of the groove radar, 
which is a pentagon enclosed in a circle.  Voltage, Stream, Chaos, Freeze, 
and Air are the determining factors.  The closer each of the five points 
are to the edge of the circle, the harder the factor is in the song for that 
difficulty rating.

  VOLTAGE: the overall amount of steps in the song.
  STREAM: how often the song's steps are interlaced.
  CHAOS: how often the steps in the song branch into 8th/16th/32nd steps.
  FREEZE: speaks for itself; determines the amount of freeze arrows.
  AIR: determines the amount of jumps in the song.


BEGINNER MODE (light blue):  Beginner Mode is a recent addition.  It's 
made for genuine beginners to the game, and most songs fall under a 
one-foot rating.

LIGHT MODE (yellow):  Also called "Basic" in earlier DDR releases, this 
is for most players who have either already experimented with Beginner 
Mode, or feel comfortable enough to skip over Beginner Mode altogether.  
Most songs rate between two and five feet.

STANDARD MODE (red):  Also called "Trick" in earlier DDR releases.  
This is a step up from Light Mode, and is also the first difficulty in 
which you'll encounter 8th steps in many of the songs.  Most songs rate 
between four and eight feet.

HEAVY MODE (green):  Also called "Maniac" in earlier DDR releases.  
This is the hardest difficulty you can select in Game Mode, and many of 
the songs are somewhat challenging.  A handful of songs are downright 
brutal, and you will encounter plenty of 8-10+ songs on the foot scale.

CHALLENGE MODE (purple-blue):  Some songs are given "Challenge" steps, 
which tend to expand upon the song's given Heavy Mode steps.  Some songs 
receive steps which are arguably easier than their Heavy counterparts, 
while other songs' steps are obviously more difficult.

Unlocked Song List & Descriptions  |
------------------------------------

There are a total of 111 songs in DDREX for the PlayStation2.  They are listed 
below in alphabetical order, accompanied by their various levels of 
difficulty and a word or two about the song.  They are NOT listed in the order 
that they are unlocked!  (A numbered list of the 25 unlockable songs can be 
found further below.)

All foot-based difficulties for each song are listed in the following order:

BEGINNER/LIGHT/STANDARD/HEAVY/CHALLENGE

a "0" for "CHALLENGE" difficulty indicates that the song has no CHALLENGE 
steps.

a "10!" (the number ten followed by an exclamation point) indicates that the 
song is rated a "flashing ten," which means that it is actually higher than
10 feet (but the foot scale can't depict it.)

3. A
Artist: D.J.Amuro
Speed: 93 - 188 bpm

Difficulties: 2/4/6/8/9
Comments: A great Heavy song for intermediate players who are used to Standard.
The song starts out slowly at 93 bpm, and speeds up to 188 bpm after a brief 
pause.  The Challenge steps are arguably a harder take on the Heavy steps, 
including many more jumps and a higher Chaos rating.

4. A Stupid Barber
Artist: Sho-T
Speed: 132 bpm
Source: DDR Extreme (HOME VERSION)
Difficulties: 1/4/6/7/0
Comments: One of the many new songs to appear exclusively in the PlayStation2 
version of DDREX.  It's hard to tell this is the same Sho-T who wrote "Groove."

5. Across the nightmare

6. AFRONOVA
Artist: RE-VENGE (Naoki Maeda)
Speed: 200 bpm
Source: DDR 3rd Mix
Difficulties: 2/5/7/9/0
Comments: A typically fun song for beginners on Light and Standard mode, is 
known for its many jumping steps.  The song turns into quite the beast on 
Heavy mode, however, especially in the final 20 seconds.

7. AFTER THE GAME (OF LOVE)
Artist: NPD3
Speed: 105 bpm
Source: DDR 3rd Mix Plus
Difficulties: 1/1/4/5/0
Comments: Due to the subject matter in the lyrics ("After the game of love, 
baby/all I wanna do is be lazy") this song has actually been rejected from US-
based DDR mixes to meet the "Everyone" ESRB rating.

8. air

Comments: In the video for this song, the infamous "Jewely Box" from Dam 
Dariram fame makes an appearance.  I suppose this is only notable to us 
Engrish types.

11. Bad Routine

12. bag
Artist: RevenG (Naoki Maeda)
Speed: 65 bpm
Source: DDR Extreme
Difficulties: 1/4/7/10/0
Comments: The infamous "10-footer that shouldn't be a 10-footer."  The fact is,
this song can only be treated as such if left at its original speed.  Passing 
bag on 1x requires honed sight-reading skills, as it is the second slowest 
song to ever grace a DDR release.  A seasoned player should have no trouble 
with bag at 3x, or even 5x.  In my opinion, the faster you make the steps 
scroll, the lower the foot rating goes.  Heavy plays like a 7-footer at 3x.

16. BURNIN' THE FLOOR (MOMO MIX)
Artist: Naoki
Speed: 170 bpm

Difficulties: 1/4/6/8/0
Comments: Just watch out for the undocumented speed change near the 
beginning.  A down freeze arrow will scroll at ~250 bpm, along with a left 
arrow that lands right on beat.  The song slows back down after the left arrow.

17. CAN'T STOP FALLIN' IN LOVE (SPEED MIX)

This song serves as the "One More Extra Stage" (OMES) track as default, and 
cannot be changed.  The forced modifiers include reverse, 3x, and sudden 
death (meaning getting one good/almost/boo/N.G. results in failure.)  
Challenge steps contain step segments from Dynamite Rave (Heavy) and B4U 
(Heavy.)

Comments: This is Healing Vision's much harder little brother.  The first step 
in the song scrolls at 49 bpm, and then the speed increases to its full 196 
bpm.  While the song doesn't change its speed afterwards, it does stop for a 
moment!  It actually pauses in-between 8th notes, a short while after the 
midway mark, and only holds this pause for an 8th measure.  After the surprise 
misleading pause, you're treated to one of the hardest midspeed runs in any 
DDR song thus far.  Enjoy!

Difficulties: 3/6/8/10/0
Comments: The original bad boy himself, and the first 10-footer to ever appear 
in a DDR game.  Prior to DDRMAX (6th mix,) the foot rating scale stopped at 9. 
Compared to some of the latest challenges to be presented (mainly from Naoki,) 
MAX 300 is beginning to show its age.  The steps aren't ridiculously difficult; 
playing this song last is probably your best bet if you want to fail.  The 
song slows down at the midway mark to a complete halt during a freeze jump, 
and begins again after one measure.  Other than that, dissect the runs.  These 
are the easiest pattern-forming runs out of all of the MAX series.

63. MAX. (period)
Artist: 2MB
Speed: ??? bpm (150 - 600 bpm)
Source: DDR Extreme (HOME VERSION)
Difficulties: 3/9/9/10!/10!
Comments: Rumor had it that a new MAX song would be coming out soon, and here 
it is.  However, it wasn't made by Naoki, and it's more of a MAX 300 remix 
than anything else.  Traces of MaxX Unlimited and The Legend of MAX can be 
heard at times, and the unmistakable slowdown during the middle section of the 
song is none other than Paranoia by 180 (Naoki Maeda.)  Amongst those who have 
played it, this song is known for its furious jumps and runs, which are all 
intertwined into one huge jug of drain-o for your stamina.  Most of the song 
is composed at around 300 bpm, which shouldn't be too daunting to most 
experts.  The song will stop near the middle, and continue on at 150 bpm with 
two original segments of steps from the original Paranoia mix (Heavy only.) 
The song then continues its pace of 300 bpm for a short while.  About 15 
seconds later, the drum kick in the background picks up to twice its speed, 
and the unthinkable happens - the song speeds up to 600 bpm!!!  This is 
disgustingly fast, and very difficult to sight read.  Your only real hope to 
passing this song on a pad is a lot of memorization; especially the final 
segment.  Otherwise (and I don't mean to be sounding like a prude here) the 
steps AREN'T that harsh.  The runs are fast, but not overly chaotic.  This is 
the fourth song in the MAX series.

64. MAXX UNLIMITED
Artist: Z (Naoki Maeda)
Speed: 140 - 320 bpm
Source: DDRMAX2
Difficulties: 3/6/8/10/0
Comments: The sequel to MAX 300.  The song's steps display a lot of similar 
characteristics to its little brother, with the addition of jumps and MANY 
freeze arrows.  Most of the freeze arrows are composed an 8th note ahead of 
the previous step.  Keep this in mind if your speed/sight reading isn't top 
notch, otherwise, you'll have a pretty hard time passing this monster on heavy. 
The song slows down about 1/3 into it to 140 bpm, and all of the freezes 
should be hit on mark with the beat for this part.  The song will come to what 
most have become accustomed to calling the "MAX stop."  The song stops after 
the 140 bpm segment for one measure, and continues on at full force afterwards. 
Additionally, whoever is responsible for creating the step chart to MAXX 
UNLIMITED should be sacked.  The freeze leading into the full stop DOESN'T 
terminate until after the song picks back up!  This means you have to hold your 
foot on the freeze during the stop, and not only lift it once the song picks 
up, but actually hit the same arrow right away.  It's terribly frustrating, 
and it doesn't help that the song has already done a number on your stamina.  
It's all downhill from there.

Comments: Regarded as "one of the best mixes of the song."  Allow me to

to the latter.  KCET stands for Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo, and yes, 
it is sheer coincidence that it spells "TECK" backwards (most people seem to

78. PARANOiA survivor
Artist: 270 (Naoki Maeda)
Speed: 135 - 270 bpm

Difficulties: 3/5/8/10/0
Comments: The slower and easier little brother of PARANOiA survivor MAX, 
although calling it slow and easy is a huge lie.  The song slows down in 
measured intervals a total of three times.  Passing PARANOiA survivor is more 
an issue of patterns than it is stamina, since once you feel confident enough 
to try it for the first time, you're more likely to fail (and you will fail) 
due to confusion than you will because of endurance problems.  You truly have 
to drill the song and its steps into your head hundreds of times to be able to 
perfect it (and by "perfect," I mean at LEAST a full combo.)  Be careful of 
the coveted "four runs from hell" in the song's finale; while the crossover 
points aren't anywhere near as hard to recognize as they are in PARANOiA
survivor MAX Challenge steps, they will still easily take you out if you don't 
know they are coming.  The run begins with LEFT-DOWN-LEFT-DOWN-RIGHT-DOWN-
RIGHT-DOWN, and for those of you who have been paying attention to my crossover 
techniques, you should know what to do from here.

Artist: 290 (Naoki Maeda)

Difficulties: 3/5/8/10!/10!
Comments: The Challenge steps for this song are more than likely the most 
brutal 90 seconds you'll ever attempt in a game of DDR.  There really isn't 
much I can tell you, except good luck and don't die.  The song itself is simply 
a mirrored version of PARANOiA survivor (Heavy) at 290 bpm instead of 270 bpm. 
Instead of ending where PARANOiA survivor ends, it continues on through a 
fourth slowdown (to 145 bpm) and speeds back up to 290 bpm.  Beating this song 
on Heavy is hard enough.  The Challenge steps are just ridiculous.

Comments: Not a difficult 10-footer no matter which way you slice it.  The 
song blazes along at 300 bpm with a heavy-hitting bass drum to make your timing 
that much easier.  The only part to watch out for is the slow segment, which 
begins in an immediate fashion (directly from 300 bpm to around 120 bpm.)  In 
Heavy difficulty, this segment is composed entirely of gallops and triplets.  
The song then speeds back up once the music intensifies to 300 bpm, and 
doesn't really throw any more curveballs your way.  For most newer players, 
this will be the first 10 footer you'll want to attempt.  After that, it's 
right on to MAX 300.

Artist: ZZ (Naoki Maeda)
Speed: ??? bpm (around 320 bpm)
Source: DDR Extreme
Difficulties: 3/6/9/10!/0
Comments: The third song in the MAX series.  This is arguably the best mix to 
date, known for its hectic steps/jumps and phrases such as "THE FLY!"  The 
Legend of MAX comes to a complete "MAX stop" 1/3 into the song, followed by a 
slow section of 16th steps, then directly back into its full speed.  The final 
steps in the song are a rough set of jumps intertwined with 8th step "gallops" 
that fly by at 320 bpm.  Appears as your default "Extra Stage" selection in 
both the arcade mix of Extreme and the PlayStation2 version, with modifiers 
1.5x, reverse, and no recover.  Beating it will unlock it (in the PlayStation2 
version only) for free play.  This song is very difficult, and the steps seem 
to seamlessly merge those of MAX 300 and MAXX UNLIMITED (only with less 
freezes.)  As with the other three MAX songs, pattern recognition and 
memorization is the key.  Contrary to popular belief, The Legend of MAX does 
NOT receive brand new Challenge steps for the PlayStation2 version of Extreme.

Nonstop Course List & Descriptions |
------------------------------------

In DDREX, all Nonstop courses are 4 songs and only 4 songs.  There are two 
different difficulties at your disposal - Normal and Difficult.  You are given 
a standard life bar, yet the life difficulty increases with each passing song 
(missed steps hurt more than in the last song.)  The point value for each song 
increases by 10,000,000 as you go along, starting at 10,000,000 on the first 
song.  The highest possible score to get on any of the Nonstop courses is 
100,000,000.

10,000,000 + 20,000,000 + 30,000,000 + 40,000,000 = 100,000,000

The standard "Song Options" menu applies to these, as well.

As of this revision, I don't have very many people to thank for their 
contributions.  However, I would like to collectively thank the forum users 
on the websites DDRFREAK.COM and AARONINJAPAN.COM (Aaron himself and 
Crackoon, specifically,) for the information and conversation they have 
provided regarding the release of DDREX and the timeframe leading up to it.
