Outstanding game deal

Sign in to follow this  


Here's an unbeatable deal, especially if you have kids. It's one of those "Dance Dance Revolution" games, complete with dance pad, for ten bucks.

Step one: Go to the Kraft web site and order the Kraft dance pad ($9.95 shipped). It's a full size dance pad, similar to the ones you've seen in game stores.

Step two: Get StepMania. This is an open source "Dance Dance Revolution" knockoff. It has loads of downloadable visuals and songs and such. It's really a top-notch piece of software.

That's it. The Kraft pad is intended to be used with Shockwave dance games on the Kraft website, but Windows thinks it's a standard USB joystick, so it'll work with pretty-much anything. I verified this myself (I'm the "John" mentioned on the StepMania website).

It's a standard USB joystick, so I presume it'll also work with the OSX or Linux version. I can't verify that, though.

Have fun!

I've had Stepmania on my modded xbox for a long time. (I've got two of the red octane ignition pads.) It's definitely good stuff.

I actually just got my Kraft pad yesterday, looks like Windows recognizes the Up, Down, Left, and Right buttons as a Hat Switch... was unable to get the combinations of Up+Down or Left+Right to work. Were you able to get around this?
