What is it?

A simple program to produce step charts from step files of pydance, StepMania, and Dance With Intensity.



Using dance2ps


dance2ps requires Python version 2.2 or later. It does not require pydance, but you should try it anyway.


You can download the files of dance2ps 1.0 in zip or gzip format.


Simply extract the archive you downloaded anywhere, as long as all the .py files are in the same directory.


At the command prompt, get the usage information by typing the following:

python /PATH/TO/DANCE2PS/dance2ps.py --help

replacing /PATH/TO/DANCE2PS/ with the directory to which you extracted it.

Feedback, ideas, and bug reports

Any of the above are welcome, as are code contributions. For bug reports, please include the offending step file. E-mail me, or find me on IRC in #pyddr on irc.freenode.net . I use the nick “Pavel”.
