Question about Konami Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party for Nintendo Wii

1 Answer

Additional mats don't work!

We bought additional mats for all 3 of our girls to play this game. The original sets up fine and works. We try to set up the other and cannot get it to set up as a Wiimote vs, I don't know, PSP or X Box remote. Actually, the nunchuk and wiimote work for the hand movements, but the mat does not work. It is plugged into the system as the wii mat. There are 3 different plug ins on the universal mat, only one of which is wii compatable. It's not as though we are confusing the plug ins. Any idea why the universal, wii compatable, mat is not compatable? I see there are at least 15 other people who could use a similar answer. Thank you for whatever you can provide.

    My second matt does not work at all and my first matt wants to switch back to a controller constantly.

    Have you checked if you can add additional mats? What remote number does the original mat show up as? The Wii balance board can only go on remote 4 and you can't use more than one, could this be the same with the mats?

You should be able to attach up to four dance pads. IF your brand of dance pad is the orange-box Pelican brand, you will have to ask for a free adapter dongle by visiting It will take about two weeks to receive, but that should solve the problem.

I think you can only get one free per email address/physical address. Find some friends to order more than one. Also, keep in mind that the Wii can only handle up to four inputs, including the Wiimotes. You may have to let a Wiimote "time out" for all four pads to work simultaneously.

Good luck!

I had the same problem this morning. It seems that the Plus (+) got stuck due to having my mat on storage for a very long time. I pinched the top and bottom of the mat where the Plus (+) sign is and separated the top from the bottom for a while. It worked like a charm!

I was having this exact same problem! So frustrating because you know that the mat does work since it works in the menu. Anyway, I found this on the Konami website:
This problem indicates that the dance mat is not plugged into the 1st player port. Please check that your dance mat is plugged into the port which is closest to the power button. This port also has 1 dot next to it, to indicate that it is for the first player. Otherwise, the system will not register that there is a first player at all, which is why the mat won’t work in any other port than the 1st player port.

I tried it and it worked!

It may sound silly, but make sure that you put batteries into the pad and that the pad is turned on.

Dance mat does not work

I had the same problem. I got the solution from a friend. Plug the mat into a different console on the Wii. I plugged it into the last one and now it works perfectly. Good luck!

Three games on wii play won't won't work

This is actually the "Wii Play" game. You must unlock each game by successfully completing the previous game. In this case, I believe that you must play, and finish, Billiards or Laser Hockey to unlock Fishing, then complete Fishing to play Charge!, and so on.

Good luck, and enjoy the games!

I bought the dance dance revolution 2 for the wii. When she steps on the pad to choose a game, it works. But when she starts to play the game, the pad wont work. What are we doing wrong?

Are you either using konami mat or game cube mat? If you're using game cube mat, then make sure you're putting it in the first player plug and konami, make sure it's player 1.

Otherwise, your mat is bad and you should call the company to get a refund!
