Good point. I've always felt like those were stupid.

I hope they just don't work it into the primary unlock mode (* Master Mode). There's no way they'd do that with Double since it requires two pads, but this doesn't.

I suppose it depends on their line of thinking at the time. You actually can play Double on a single pad/controller, if you check the options, but the implementation is poopy and it's horribly easy to lose your place.

Either way, they seem to have figured out a while ago that people primarily play the standard 4-panel mode the most and have catered things around that. There are several games with only Single, but none with only Double or Solo or etc. (thankfully)...

Get serious.

It's like solo+ mode.  I wonder if it means that the patterns will get any better?

Probably not.  I could understand doubles mode's layout nicely.  This one, not so much  :V

What if they made a 6 panel that looked like the "6" on a cube die?

I still think 5-line Pop'n would be a decent dancing game.

Hmm, that could be, yeah, though I havea  feeling the two outer buttons would hurt to slip up on a jump.

Why? It's not like it's 9-line.

uhhh, wth, 8 panel mode?

To me, I think theres a limit to number of panels you can have on a single mat until the extra panels are there just to irritate you rather than to make it look like you actually have skill.

Like... true that you may have to move your feet a lot more with 8 panels, but overall I'm not convinced that it'll be significantly more exercise than a comparable 4 panel chart. 

I thought the limit was somewhere between 5 and 6 panels, or something....  6 panel mode to me also felt a little redundant, and the skill came down being able to read it rather than being able to "dance" it.

You won't have to move them more unless the chart density is higher. It just means that there are more possible positions.

I personally like the 8-panel idea.

I remember there being a DDR clone with 9 panels and you could play 4-panel, 5-panel and 8-panel modes. Don't remember it though... :<

GG.  Instant failure it is, nothing else quite describes that.  It makes sense since it's kind of... inaccurate (speaking of, I wonder what the timings are on that piece of work), but that doesn't make it any less of a failure.
