Did you assign buttons via spicecfg?

Did you install KinectSDK-v1.7-Setup and KinectDeveloperToolkit-v1.7.0-Setup?

Also, is your kinect "stable" or does it continuously connect and disconnect from your pc? This is important

Is kinect studio required to be opened before launching spice or just installed?

i installed KinectSDK-v1.5.2-Setup and KinectDeveloperToolkit-v1.5.2-Setup.
my kinect is stable.
kinect studio is required to be open i think.
I already made a .bat file that starts up kinect studio, then the game.

Hallo.  So I managed to get 2 copies of the 2016 version.  First one has all songs but only Light, Standard and Extreme difficulties.  The second one has Master and Stealth difficulties.  I didn't do anything except download the games and they both launched by using Spicetools.  I'll try to get the links to share if it's allowed here.  Edit: Added a link, I hope it works.

as of today(9/1/2020), this version (2016021900) works fine! I used SpiceTools to configure the button inputs. Thank you!

 

i also downloaded it with no issues and no mega subscription needed. just make an account and start download. it will get about 90% finished then it'll have you wait ~8 hours to complete the download. if you wanna bypass that, i guess you can buy low tier subscription but, i just waited it out...

 

i'd suggest at least making an account because it will keep better track of the download transfer progress. (if you dont have an account and it loses track, you'll have to start all over :/ take it from me, lol).

Hi all, I'm very dumb.

 

How do I launch the new version? Can someone link to spicetools and ealocalserver and show me exactly how to use it oops.

 

I have the 2015-1028 version, and want to see if it works.

 

Edit: I found spicetools-latest, and it works :o Just had to enable e-amusement emulation in spicecfg, no ealocalserver needed.

Edit2: Doesn't seem to have Din Don Dan... Maybe theres an unlock code? Or maybe its too old for it? Guess I'll download the 2016 version.

Edit3: huh you can change the menu to english by editing the ea3 config <dest> from J to A.

Edit4: You'll need something better than laptop Intel integrated graphics to get decent framerates.

Edit4: This game refuses to run properly on laptops, works totally fine on desktop. Think this might be a common problem..

I hope someone can dump the latest data for Dance Evolution. I just went to GameStop and bought a used Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor for the game. Works great, but had a hard time playing it in fullscreen until now.

This straight up refuses to boot on my 2008 laptop, which is understandable.

Anyone know the minimum requirements? I'm getting around 20 fps on a $500 laptop I bought in 2017 with Intel integrated graphics, so that's not enough.

 

I can get around 33 fps on a $400 desktop from 2012 with AMD Radeon HD 6530D graphics and an A6 processor.

Ok guys I finally did it! Disconnection problem was caused by the insufficient power of my USB 3.0, so I used an external USB 3.0 hub (with USB 3.0 ports) a that solved it! the kinect doesn't disconnect anymore. Kinect studio doesn't recognize it, but spicetools launch the game and I get no errors.

The game now starts and I'm happy, I can browse songs etc.

sadly my actual room is very small and dark, so I wasn't able to perform an accurate accuracy test, (I had some problems browsing the songs, but I think it's my room's size and light problem). I was still able to try a song and get a few perfect anyway.
Now I will try to help new comers if I can, as you all helped me, I'm so grateful :D

I'm having the same exact problem :(. I bought a "Amazon USB 3.0 Extension Cable - A-Male to A-Female Adapter Cord - 3.3 Feet (1 Meter)". Do you think that will solve my problem?

Can anyone post their specs and the frame rates they get? You can enable framerates with one of the function keys in spicetools.

I am using KDM-2016021900 with SpiceTools (running through spice.exe and set up with the Dance Evolution profile in spicecfg) and I am getting the grey screen as if I didn't install the Jun 10 DXSDK and Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package. I have installed both of those (uninstalling existing 2010 Visual C++ first) onto the same drive that the game is located in, but I still get the grey screen. I do not currently have the Kinect set up, do I need to do that for it to display? I didn't want to order a Kinect until I could at least see if I could get the game to start first.

Damn someone should really do an updated guide, because I just spent like an hour figuring out SpiceTools. Now I feel more safe playing this game this way since before I used the shady as fuck Chinese eaLocalServer.exe and gameboot.bat file, yikes. Everything works perfectly and my performance is better, only thing not working is the E-Amusement thing but I don't care about that feature.

 

Does anyone know how to change the resolution of the game? When I play it in fullscreen mode is goes to 1280x720p when my screen is 1366x768p.

Sadly didn't work for me. 

 

I got:

[2020/10/29 18:55:45] W:hid-generic: Initial ReadFile failed: 000006f8: \\?\hid#vmulti&col01#1&2d595ca7&0&0000#{4d1e55b2-f16f-11cf-88cb-001111000030}

 

I checked kinect studio and my kinect works.

 

*edit.

 

It works with no fuss on my laptop. Annoyingly it crashes during gameplay and has no sound when connected to HDMI.

So anyone with complicated setups get this to work? I have multi monitor, different sound card and it seems the Spice or this game hates it (along with DDR A20). I noticed the game was finicky when I disabled the default sound card (HDMI sound out was still there, so there was a sound output method) on my laptop and refused to run. At least the game works well now on my laptop when I forced my laptop to use the graphic card.

Nice guide but why is using spicetools bad? I feel like its safer because you dont need to run the localserver thing plus spicetools gives you many options for the game itself. Still looking for info on how to change the resolution of the game BTW...

Din Don Dan is in the game files. (contents\data\sound\dind.xwb) So yes, there should be some unlock codes that will enable it.

EDIT: I ran the game in event mode using spicetools and I think all the songs are unlocked. Using ealocalserver gave me an error about the coin machine.

Need some help with ealocalserver.

Tried to scan card but it shows an error message: The connection is busy. Try again later.

Any way to fix this?

 

EDIT: Nvm, just found out ealocalserver doesn't save score.

Is there any e-amusement private server or program to save score?
