Orbs to Arrows Mod - Updated for
Updated to the lastest version,
(This is a link to the zipfile. It will take you to a non-Steam website where you can download the mod. This mod is not affiliated with Icetesy.)

After spending 5 minutes editing the sprites and two days trying to get XNA to work with Windows 8, this is ready for release. It changes the orbs to arrows, and changes the indicator sprite to say "HOLD." This should ease gameplay for those who have trouble seeing which way the inputs face. Instructions to install are in the readme file.

Some screens of the arrows without balls. For screens of arrows with the balls see Sfitzknot's post below. I've also noticed that arrows with balls works best with the ribbons that appear ingame.

Could you maybe post some screenshots of how it looks in game? I'd like to see it before I try it out.

^ Screenshots for those interested. I only screened the ones with the balls in the middle though, not the non-ball ones as well.
Screenshots look pretty neat, I'll give it a shot, see if it helps me out at all.

EDIT: This surprisingly did help me with my personal performance, thanks for this. I don't suppose there's a way to edit the colors of the orbs, I know that the colors are geared towards an Xbox 360 controller, but I actually plan on a PS3 controller, if there isn't, ah well, I'll just deal with it haha.

Many thanks for this neat mod. I was having trouble adjusting to the default direction orbs, but I can spot these arrows much quicker and just focus on the rhythm. From 2 hearts to 4 on the same song, needless to say I really appreciate this mod.

Definitely gonna need to give this mod a try. Seems like it will make it a lot easier seeing what I should be hitting. Though at the same time I feel like it shouldn't be an arrow so it is different from the bottom ones (I know the arrows are different sizes but still)

This'll be handy for me, as I come from an extensive Dance Dance Revolution/In The Groove background. Thanks.

The latest alpha build ( will overwrite the modfile. I will update the mod in a few hours - a few small changes may be needed.

Edit - done, thread updated with latest release.
