Being a convention and all we have to pay for every piece of music we play at the convention, we can't just download songs and put em on there, well we could but we don't wanna get sued and face possible jailtime

(also, you guys aren't thát strict - the Wii from last year was modded and the Smash Brawl tournament was played on a pirated version using the mod software because the disc didn't work )
So... how is the machine called, if I may be so bold? Sure enough that searching for packs for the 'name-of-machine' (or name of setup or w/e) will return sómething. The charts exist! Therefore they are somewhere on the internet. *chuckles*
Sorry for al the questions, hope it's not bothering you!
To be honest, a lot of games in the Gameroom are copy's or running of USB/Hard Drive.
This is simply because some hardware (Like the wii's crappy laser having problem with dual layer discs) works better that way, or it saves in game swapping time, however I assure you we tolerate 0 illegal games in the Gameroom, for each game we have running on a backup/usb/disk we have the legal copy with us in the Gameroom, even all the weird Japanese games, feel free to ask me on the convention and I will show you
This is the same reason why the mobile Gameroom has r4 cards with only 2 games on them: Teris / Mario Kart, we have 4 legal copy's of both games, however switching them over and over while running around with the consoles is a hassel.
We not only have a legal copy because we would otherwise be breaking the law, but also because we as the Gameroom team strongly believe artists/developers deserve money for their hard work.
Now getting to the point about DDR:
There are no packs since we have a contract with a third party that exploits their software for events and also pays royalties for every song that they use, part of this deal is that they supply the software and simply remove it again after every event. So not only wouldn't we spread the files if we could, we simply can't
