I don't know if there's any needed hack for the mat to work. Personally I use configurable usb loader, load DDR HP3 without using any special cios and the mat works perfectly.
I just want to say that not all mats are compatible with DDR HP3. Some dance mats may work with DDR HP1 and 2 but not with HP3.
Have you tried your mat with other DDR games?
Yeah it doesnt work with HP1 or 2, lame.
I tried contacting the seller but no respone.
Does anyone know of where i can get a mat that works in australia? ^_^
If i dont end up getting it up and running, guess ill wait till Q2 for DDR ps3
Dillon512 what dance matts do you have?
I bought my kids dance matts for christmas off ebay and they work fine with all of the games.
I haven't tried with DDR HP3 as I dont have a copy of that game.
Dance mat adapter needed
In April 2009, I had bought a wired Dance mat made by I-Con. The mat was released before DDR Hottest Party 2 and was not compatible with newer games. All I had to do was to request an adapter that was shipped to my address free of charge. The address is ICON Products - Video Game Accessories.
