Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) Wiki


Modifiers are settings that you can change that will affect the way a chart will scroll. Modifiers can do many different things. For example speed modifiers can change the scroll speed of the arrow. Turn modifiers can change the orientation of the arrows of a chart. The modifiers can be accessed on an arcade by holding the center button after selecting a song until a menu shows up. The variety of modifiers has changed as new arcade games are released.
