Hello, I have proposed this rotation in the past and it has generally been regarded as a good idea, but I feel like perhaps I should propose it with more gravity via a poll on these forums to truly decide! So here is the motivation:

I'm sure some of us would agree that DDR Supernova 2, while a great game, is missing many of our favorite older songs from DDR, and doesn't have quite as many options in terms of nonstop courses, etc. Acme Bowl also already has 2 very modern dance games, ITG and PUI. I have spoken with many local people who claim that their favorite machine for DDR is Extreme. Besides the difference in songs, the only real inhibition I can see to changing Supernova 2 at Acme to Extreme is the notion of a 'downgrade' in machines for newer players, though I feel that with the better selection of songs and better interface (in my opinion), the difference would be negligible, and more regular players would presumably use it more and thus it would overall see more use. Now, I assume Acme would be neutral to a change if it was with the intent of drawing more play and whence business for Acme Bowl in general, which Bill would have to confirm, but if all that was ok, consider the following:

Acme Bowl has a Supernova 2 machine. Narrows Bowl has a Supernova 1 machine. Daffodil Bowl has a (perfect) DDR Extreme machine, all owned by Masterman Vending. With in mind these arcades and how the following change would potentially increase the allure of all three locations, I propose that Masterman Vending rotate these machines, such that we now have DDR Extreme at Acme instead of Supernova 2, and change the Extreme machine at Daffodil to Supernova, and the Supernova machine at Narrows to Supernova 2. I postulate that Extreme at Acme would get much more play than SN2 from Acme's player base, and these other locations may even benefit from an 'upgrade', given that they have mostly more random players in their base anyway. And if it needed simplification, we could just switch Daffodil and Acme's machines, but the rotation seemed to me better for business (and play), since Narrows is a more frequented arcade.

All this postulating is useless however, so that's why we have a poll! Please, if you do play or would play DDR at Acme (or any other of these locations) (so don't vote 'yes' or 'no' if you won't really play DDR there please, as to avoid skewing of the numbers...), please cast your vote in favor of or against such a change. If a preferable one, we can bring it to Masterman Vending in hopes it can work out. Also, feel free to include any particularly strong opinions on the matter by replying to the post! You can change your votes and we can have a discussion out of it or whatever. Anyway thanks for your input!

I wish they could exchange with the Basketballs.  But take a look at how far they would stick out.  Remember, the wall goes back further just to the left of DDR.  It would probably have to hit the back corner, sorry to say.

This is a long shot, but is it maybe okay to move the DDR machine over to the left of the huge claw machine? I know that ITG can never be placed back there due to the noise, but DDR doesn't seem as loud, and it still unfortunately gets drowned out by ITG, so I assume that we may have a better shot with bringing the DDR over to that spot.

I did consider this, however we can just as easily put SN and SN2 on the ITG machine also. Also 180 of those SN2 songs are from SN1 and 2, approximately 170 of which are garbage (in my opinion...)  Wink

Why don't we just put all the DDR songs on the ITG machine! Tongue

Also wow, that is cool news that ACME may be getting an X3 setup!

Why don't we just swap all the arcade machines at ACME for all of the rhythm games in the area lol Cheesy

okay now I have to come visit.
First new sensors for ITG and now X3. Boy oh boy is that awesome.
I see the poll at the top but i'm unsure how to vote?

This seems very interesting and I am looking forward to trying it out.  Cheesy

There is one concern for me however. Are we going to keep the ITG machine and the DDR machine in the same location? Now that the DDR machine had its volume increased, I find that when both machines are running at the same time, it is just a mess of noise and both machines can't truly hear the song that is playing. Would there be a possibility that we move the ITG/DDR machine where the PUI was?  Huh

For consideration:
SN2 has 355 songs. [Full Song List]
Extreme has 238 songs. [Full Song List]

Also for consideration: Acme's ITG Machine has probably all of the songs from DDR Extreme on its machine.

But in any case, I locked the poll because

There is a big suprise coming, already bought and paid for, for the SN2 cab at Acme.

And it sounds like a plenty exciting change! Thanks Bill!  Roll Eyes

How much would this cost Bill to implement in terms of tech time/labor?

For consideration:
SN2 has 355 songs. [Full Song List]
Extreme has 238 songs. [Full Song List]

Also for consideration: Acme's ITG Machine has probably all of the songs from DDR Extreme on its machine. ITG has the DDR song packs through Extreme installed on it, including Korean mixes. I played old DDR songs on both of my ITG sets this week, and enjoyed it; and played some songs on Supernova that I couldn't if it was back to Extreme.

So why would we want to remove songs that we don't have (Supernova 1 & 2 files) to duplicate files we already have on another machine in the same arcade?
