Play the chart as it was originally charted. The chart is identical on 1p and 2p side - they are not mirrored to compensate for the turntable’s position.
Also known as “non-ran” / 正規 (regular).
The lanes are mirrored left and right.
Also known as 鏡 (mirror).
The R stands for Rotation. The lanes are shifted left or right. The whole chart could also be mirrored. It is also possible to receive the original (non-random) chart.
Also known as R乱.
The lanes are shuffled in a randomized order. There are 7! = 5040 possible permutations for SP. It is still possible to get the original chart with a very low probability.
Also known as 乱.
Each individual notes are placed on a random lane.
Swaps 1P side and 2P side, including the scratches – see image above. FLIP option is applied first, and then other options (mirror, random) are applied to each side.
If you want to mirror the entire DP chart, you need to enable FLIP and turn on MIRROR for both sides.
Duplicates an SP pattern onto both sides. Scores and lamps will not save with this enabled. Cannot be used in STEP UP.
Turning BATTLE on results in DB (double battle) pattern. This isn’t widely used.
Turning BATTLE with MIRROR on one side is DBM (double battle mirror). See more details about DBM here. Turning BATTLE with RANDOM on both sides is DBR (double battle random). Both DBM and DBR are used as training tools for DP players.
Typically, players will turn on AUTO-SCRATCH when using the BATTLE option, since BATTLE may result in patterns that are physically impossible. In fact, when DP players refer to DBR and DBM, they are implying that AUTO-SCRATCH is enabled, unless noted otherwise.
Only possible when BATTLE is enabled; both sides will receive the same random. The resulting chart will not be symmetric; rather, it would be duplicated on both sides.
Only possible when BATTLE is enabled; both sides will receive the same random, but one side will be mirrored, resulting in a symmetric pattern.
Press keypad 8 to activate. Like S-RANDOM, except there are additional rules enforced to ensure that you don’t get too many notes in a row in the same lane, which makes it easier than S-RAN. Since this is an assist option, your lamp and score will not save.
Press keypad 6 to activate. This is only applicable when two people are playing at the same time, with random - they will receive the same random, but mirrored on the 2p side.
