0.01: Intro_________________________________________________

'DJ Syndrome' is the main tagline of the marketing campaign for 
Beatmania 4th Mix ~The Beat Goes On~. It's also now a series of guides 
to Beatmania, Dance Dance Revolution and the rest of the BEMANI series 
of rhythm games by Konami. While not comprehensive, it should begin to 
answer some of the questions that you might have about the games. 

Please note that this FAQ only covers the GameBoy(Color) release of 
Beatmania GB.  For a more comprehensive look at Beatmania and the rest 
of the BEMANI series, including things like Soundtracks (audio CDs), 
strategy guides, portable LCD games (like Beatmania Pocket), and much 
much more, please check out my longer work titled DJ Syndrome: The 
BEMANI Series FAQ. 

All of the information contained in this FAQ is also available in the 
longer, more comprehensive work titled "DJ Syndrome: The BEMANI Series 
FAQ". This document is merely a scaled down version that only pertains 
to the GameBoy(Color) release Beatmania GB (sequels, Playstation, 
WonderSwan, and arcade releases are _not_ covered, nor is Beatmania 
GB2).

This is my final planned release for this FAQ. Please see my BEMANI 
series FAQ (the Compendium at gamefaqs.com) for more up-to-date 
BEMANI/Beatmania info. 


Title:   Beatmania GB
System:  GameBoy Color/GameBoy

Intro:   The first Beatmania for a portable system, the GameBoy version, 
which is compatable with all existing GameBoy systems, features songs 
from the 2nd and 3rd Arcade mixes, as well as a few originals. This is 
the first home title to include a feature that keeps track of how many 
greats/good you score in a row (this first appeared in Beatmania in 4th 
Mix in the arcades). Also, a first in the Beatmania releases, a password 
system is included to open up the hidden songs in Free mode.

you've already opened - they're just not accessable - only the DJ Battle 
is (which usually isn't accessable...)


0.04: Song List____________________________________________

[note: if multiple BPMs are listed, then it starts at the first number, 
then changes to the next number, then the next, etc. The first number in 
the Notes category is the number in notes in 1P mode, and the second 
number is for 2P mode. If there is a dash instead of a number, then the 
song is not available in that mode.]

[notes: In Beatmania GB, no artists are listed in the game itself, and 
there is no song list in the instruction book. Also, in DJ Battle, the 
number of stars is listed as one, but instead of saying 'EASY' under the 
record like it should, it says '????'.]
