FAQs - DDR 3rd Mix Asian
This mix is similar to DDR 3rd Mix, but there are a few differences that affect gameplay:
Step Modes and other codes
To access edit data for a song, you can hold , and a menu will appear listing the available edit data for the song. If there is no edit data for a song, the menu will have only one choice, Official.
Grading and Score
The rest of this section describes how 3rd Mix calculates your score exactly.
Let N be the number of steps in the song you are playing. Let [x] be the greatest integer function (i.e., [x] = the greatest integer less than or equal to x). Then define b, the point value on which the point value for every step in the song is based, to be:
b = [1,000,000/(N(N+1)/2)]
Then, the point value for the ith step in a combo is:
S(i) = P(i), if the ith step is a Perfect; G(i) if the ith step is a Great;
The only step that deviates from this formula is the last step, or Nth step, of the song. If you get a Perfect on the Nth step, you get the appropriate points for that Perfect, plus a bonus B:
B(N) = 10,000,000 - (summation of P(i) as i goes from 1 to N)
Thanks to EnoOn for describing the general algorithm to me, and thanks to DDR Stompin' Ground for the description of how the bonus on the last step was calculated.
