Cool, I'll be back in there soon then. I should be getting some funds over the weekend. Just to play it safe, I'll make sure I've got a bit of cash in hand, just so they won't see me as someone who's just "hangin' out" or something.

Does the StepMania machine have that feature where you can play longer songs but they count as two or three depending on length, or is it still the rigid ITG limits that you can kinda sorta get around with patched oggs on some versions?

They (we) just updated the old Narrows ITG cab, so that it's much more customizable than just the boring ol' officials-only cabinet. I say my other comment about the ACME cab figuratively, I mean that this is a way better option than the ITG cabinet at ACME because there's someone who's much more active with updating the Narrows cab.

The Narrows ITG cab is a more upgraded ACME cab, I'll say. Also, I think the format for loading custom songs through USB drives is the same with any normal cabinet.

I heard from someone today that the GrooveNights theme is on one of the machines, along with DDR songs. I assumed the ITG2 had some stuff hacked on, but I just read it's a StepMania converted cabinet. Since ITG is, at it's core, just StepMania with a specific theme and set of songs, it's good to know things have expanded beyond ITG, like what was done with the dedicab up at ACME, which I still need to go up and try out (so many years gone by, sheesh), but is it still possible to load custom songs from USB, and if so, do they still have to be in the .ogg/.sm standard custom song format, or can the machine load other formats as well, and lastly, what are the hours at Narrows? I didn't see them listed in the location info.

EDIT: nevermind about the hours, their website just told me what they are.

So they moved the ACME dedicab to Narrows then, or did they just update the ITG2 that was already at Narrows? In any case, I'll have to make my way up there and check it out just to see what it's like. I'm usually playing ITG2 at B&I since Masterman put their machines in over there, and I've been so far out of the loop regarding ACME and Narrows.

EDIT: Sorry, I need to read more threads before I ask questions. It looks like the machine at Narrows is an upgraded cabinet, not the dedicab, and it's running OpenITG, not the original software or one of the mainline StepManias. Also, it looks like the monitor's been replaced with a widescree flat-panel one. I'm intrigued.

i haven't been to Narrows since the end of about Dec. 2006 (banned in Dec. 2005 over a panhandling accusation). i'm wondering if the management has remained the same since then or if there's been any changes. i'd hate to walk in there to play some ITG and get arrested because they recognized me or something...

wow... a couple years later and i've still not been back there yet... still edgy about that place, i guess... been meaning to make my way up to Acme at some point, but i've just been forgetting to...

also, i think i don't try going to Narrows because my voice and face are what are recognizable, and my personality even more so. if i say anything to anyone who works there, i'm sure that, even after all this time, they'd probably remember seeing me before and then remember "oh yeah, that guy was 86'd, right?"

sorry, i just can't seem to shake off my PARANOiA...

For music games, DDR Supernova, and ITG 2, two players for the price of one.

Bill,

Just get a USB drive and put the r21 patch on it (in the root of the drive, not a sub folder). Put the USB into the machine's USB ports. Go to the Operator/Service menu and choose Machine Update. The rest should be self-explanatory.

r21 Patch:
http://www.goofwear.com/itg/downloads/itg2_arcade/ITG%202%20r21.itg

You may need to apply the r16 patch first, it goes on the same way and you can get it here:

Seems that the Narrows ITG2 cabinet lost it's memory, and it's R21 patch.  Any Narrows players that know how to install this patch, along with our cooperation and encouragement?
thanks

went to narrows today before going to BeFit tacoma to train. Had a good session getting to know lots of itg1 and 2 charts, the pads are quite fun, its an interesting contrast to the machine at acme, but it builds the fundamentals.  Smiley i did not get the memo its 75 cents which is a smoking deal :]

The pads are alright and no it's the same r21 ITG2. Most people play at Acme nowadays. I never see regulars at Narrows so the dance machines never get much love unfortunately.

Hey everybody,

It's been a while.  How are the pads holding up at Narrows?  Have they imported ITG3 or OpenITG like they did at Acme?
I'm definitely looking forward to playing with the regulars again when I return in spring 2012.

Yeah, I thought there was someone else called Pantsu here...heh, funny.

If you want to make sure your Stepmania songs are R21 compliant, I'd give this program a shot. It converts MP3 to OGG, removes banners and bgs, and basically makes it everything it needs to be to function properly on a ITG2 r21 machine.

Hello~
I'm new here.  I just found out recently that Narrows Plaza has a Pop'n Machine, and my only opportunities of ever playing any Pop'n are driving all the way to Gameworks or FreePlaying it at Sakuracon every year. I've always wanted to get back into an arcade scene of some kind too for a really long while, so it's nice to see stuff like Initial D, Drummania, and Pop'n so close to where I live. 

Seems like arcades (Well, arcades with games I really prefer playing) mostly thrive in Cali and Hawaii now as far as North America is concerned, so it's nice to see some actual asian arcade music games available in this state that aren't just DDR or its variants.  Grin

I also noticed the InTheGroove machine and was wondering if it supported custom songs.  I heard from somewhere a long, long time ago that this was actually possible on some ITG cabinets.  Does this particular ITG allow for custom songs to be loaded and played?

If it does support that function, can someone walk me through how to go about doing that? To be honest, I never really played ITG.  Only DDR, and I haven't even played DDR in years so I've been pretty out of it.  Lips sealed I mostly play IIDX, Pop'n, DJ Max, and hopefully Jubeat Plus in a couple days when it's released on the iPad.

Thanks for the help!

(Here's hoping that they get Jubeat, DJ Max Technika or a IIDX game too.   Smiley )

Hey! Good to see some new people around! It's funny that you use the name Pantsu because there used to be a player from around here who used that name. Of course, I'm pretty sure you're not the same person.
This is a good guide for ITG custom songs. The machine at Narrows was a prototype upgrade, so it has the USB ports on the right side of the machine on the speaker cabinet thing. The process is still the same, however. If my memory serves me correctly, that machine's running R21 right now. I had meant to fix that for a long time but I just can't find the time to get down to Tacoma anymore. Maybe once my college applications are submitted. As I mentioned above, I also have the side speaker pops for Pop'n Music 13 and I will bring them down if I do get the chance.

I might actually do it one day, but it's a little harder for upgrade cabinets. To make a long story short, upgrade cabinet's monitors don't work when you're doing the hacking. As you can imagine, this makes things a little harder. You generally either have to have a list of keystrokes to input or hook up an external monitor. If I get some time (and hey, I'm going to Narrows now more since Tetris The Grand Master moved there), I'll see what I can do. I'd probably install a different theme than the ITG3 theme though, just to keep things interesting. Everything else would probably be just the same as Acme.

All you would need to do is rent Kevin an apartment there near Narrows.  I bet he would have that cabinet upgraded to ITG3 real quick.  It is Kevin that is to be thanked for the Acme update goodness.

What are the chances of upgrading the ITG2 machine? I went there last week and the place seemed dead as usual. Not really sure about how hard it would be for it to be upgraded. If the machines allowed better use of the usb drive, it wouldn't be that bad, but the limits on the songs kind of kills the selection of songs I can bring with me.

ITG2, Super Nova, DM & GF is about it for rythem games.  Other highlights would include Rambo, TC4, and Max Tune 3DX and ID4.

Hey, kind of cross posting from DDR Freak; they told me pnwbemani is the hot place nowadays.

Just wanted to shoot out a message.  This is Vultaire, or VULT as some knew me - former regular at Narrows, lost a bit of weight doing obsessive amounts of ITG and Extreme.

3 years ago I moved to Japan, but I'll be visiting the States from June 5th through the 13th.  Just was curious if any of the old regulars (3 years past) still go to Narrows, Acme, or wherever.  Just hoping for the chance to bump into some familiar faces, perhaps.

Thanks!

I went there hoping to play a 5th mix...  I mean I do like that they have an ITG2 with a working mem slot...
I'll have to check out other locations to play the older mixes--it'd be nice to play an extreme or 5th or hell a 3rd mix...  I'm sick of Dancing Stage--it's nice to see DDR machines again.

Oh, yeah I know you guys had HoD4. I never played it because of the automatic guns. I'm talking about a really long time ago you guys had HoD2 where ITG2 is and stuff.

P.S.  Just out of sheer perseverance, if Max tune 3 had more business would there be a chance of 2 more machines?

I've actually decided to forget about trying to get unbanned.  I'll just make the trip to Acme every so often to get my ITG2 and DDR SN fix.

edit: and wow, no one cares about Narrows anyway!  10 days and no posts since this one.  or maybe there's just no developments or news.
