I'm not a big fan of DDR, but than again i'm not a fan of guitar hero ether. Well i say that a DDR app would be awesome, like being able to add your own song and putting the beats where even you want. I know what song I would put Frank Zappa- Catholics Girls, so i'm for the idea.

I am relatively certain that DtD is working on a port of Stepmania for the Wii. As far as I know, he has been busy with his other projects lately, and this is just supposed to be a side project. But, Stepmania most likely will be coming to Wii, so rejoice!

At first he spent so much time on Stepmania for Wii that his team got angry with him for not working on what is supposed to be his main project. I believe his main project is DtD Tower Defense 2. Here is the homepage for the first one [www.dtdsoft.com] I don't know how the Stepmania project is currently though, when I last checked on it he was busy with his main project, but that was some time ago.

Someone should port stepmania and frets on fire into the same app, lol.

Stepping to the beat and jamming the solo at the same time would be pretty epically geeky.

Maybe we could tie Wiimotes to our legs and use the motion sensors instead of having a pad.

Does anyone have contact with DtD? I am interested in getting his source code. It may not be functional but it is a base for someone to start off of.

Actually, DtD canceled it for internal reasons.

Ok, I need to put something public up so I can stop getting emails about it.

StepMania: Wii has officially been canceled as a project by DtD Software.
For legal reasons (unique to us, someone else can still port StepMania) we will not be able to continue the project after DtD Tower Defense.

Also, I won't be releasing the source code for three reasons:
1) Most of my changes were directly to devKitPro and were quick-and-easy fixes to bugs that have probably been fixed by now.
2) It should be easier for another developer to port it because of the more mature homebrew community.
3) I just noticed that it got eaten by my recent hard drive reformat. (Tilde Virus, and it was long overdue for one anyway.)

Sounds like they never did any work at all.

He did. I found source from old old old old times. I would consider it sooner or later.
