You can upload Dance Central photos to the KinectShare website. Once uploaded, you can download, print or share your photos on social networking sites like Facebook.
After you dance a song, select Photos from the menu to see the photos taken during the song. Select the photo you want to upload. If you’re not signed in to an Xbox Live profile, you’ll be prompted to do so. Confirm that you want to upload the photo to the Kinect Sharing Centre.
If your room is crowded and loud, Kinect might think that someone is trying to use voice commands (such as “Xbox pause”). Here's how to temporarily turn off voice control:
For more information about voice control, please see Dance Central 2 voice commands.
No, scores won’t transfer from Dance Central 1 to Dance Central 2. We changed how scores and stars are earned in Dance Central 2, largely because of the new Dance Battle feature. So you'll have to earn new scores for songs that you import from Dance Central 1.
Yes, you can turn off Freestyle for Dance Central 2 songs. Here’s how:
Gold flashcards are worth four times the normal score. In Perform It mode, gold cards combine with your performance multiplier for BIG points. Gold cards can be a game changer in Dance Battle and Free For All modes, so if you’re a little behind, go for the gold!
The scoring isn’t the same across both modes. Dance Battle’s scoring system is designed to reduce the inherent advantages that a “Hard” skill level player has over an “Easy” skill level player. The person playing on “Hard” has a scoring advantage, but we wanted to keep the “Easy” player competitive.
Perform It mode: Hand ribbons appear when a player is dancing at peak performance (that is, his or her multiplier is maxed out). If both players are dancing at peak performance, the venue changes to an electric nightclub.
Dance Battle mode: Hand ribbons indicate which player is currently in the lead.
Play Crew Challenge to unlock more characters, outfits and achievements.
Perform It session: Yes, just jump in next to them and raise your hand to start. The game will pop up flashcards on your side of the screen and drop you in at the same difficulty as your friend.
Break it Down session: No. Because the player has ultimate control over the pacing and flow of the experience, Break It Down is a one-player-only mode.
If you’re signed in with a gamer profile, the outfits are saved and you won’t need to enter the codes again.
If you’re the active player, your skeleton is highlighted in one of the shadow boxes in the upper left or right corner. If you're playing with a friend and can’t tell who the active player is, get one player to keep her hands down and the other player to wave.
Put your hands down at your side and have your friend raise their right arm straight out to their side. The menus should make a noise and change colour. The menus are always the colour of the navigating player (either pink or blue).
Once you've chosen a song, you'll both be able to pick your own skill level and dancer.
To create a playlist, you must be signed in to a gamer profile so that the playlist can be saved.
Fitness mode gives you milestone-based feedback such as how many calories you’ve burned this session or the total across all sessions. If you finish your workout and want to see your stats, return to Fitness Mode to see your stats for your most recent workout.
Sometimes Kinect doesn’t recognise you if your clothing or the room lighting has changed. To make sure Kinect recognises you throughout this gaming session, raise both hands (as suggested on screen).
If you don’t see your gamertag listed, it means that there isn’t any Kinect ID information just yet. Choose Select another profile and then select your profile. Kinect should now recognise you in future.
Thanks for your feedback!
