Don't know about the dance pads but pyDDR could be easier to get running than Stepmania which requires OpenGL IIRC. Some people even play these things with keyboard though. :P

It's only fun with the dance pads The Wii Dance Pads are wired AFAIK. Maybe a N800/N810 in USB host mode and a modified BlueMaemo that then connects via Bluetooth to the N900 which runs Stepmania and outputs to the TV could work? But it depends on the latency that this "Bluetooth in between" introduces.

Also, you would need both a N8x0 and a N900 to get things going. Given that you can have Stepmania on a CD (and use it on a PC) and you have to take the dance mat with you anyway means that there's no real reason to have it on the tablet (you could place the Windows binary of Stepmania + some songs in your MyDocs folder and hook up the dance mat + N900 to a Windows PC, though).

Here you go:

http://khan.thpinfo.com/~thp/tmp/pydance-maemo.tgz

What you need to get it running:

sudo gainroot
apt-get install python-pygame

Then copy the downloaded file to your device and do:

cd MyDocs
tar xzvf pydance-maemo.tgz
cd pydance-1.1.0
python pydance.py

The keyboard bindings are as follows: Enter and Backspace to navigate the menus, and your dance pad is the square with "q" in the upper left corner and "c" in the lower right corner (i.e. "a" is left, "w" is up, "x" is down and "d" is right).

Only one song included (from the website). You can put more songs into "songs/", but be sure to decode the .ogg file to .wav and change the filename in the .dance file, because pygame (at least on the N810, and I guess also on the N900) does not support ogg :/

Enjoy. If people like it, I might do a proper .deb later and upload to Extras-Devel. But now back to some serious learning...
