This guide assumes you have the Konami Beatmania IIDX controller (either
the original controller or the arcade-style controller). It is possible
to play the game with a Dual Shock controller (hell, some people have
managed to play it with PS2 DVD remotes and pop'n music controllers, but
this is only for people with superhuman abilities), but this is not 
recommended. You are advised to pick up a Beatmania IIDX controller before

And before anyone asks, no, do not get the Rave Discman. It is a piece of
trash, and is primarily good at shorting out, rusting, and otherwise not 
working properly. Don't let the cheap price tag fool you - it's cheap for 
a reason. You can buy as many as you want and try to make your own working 
controller, but doing so could get you laughed at by many, and it's best 
just to get a regular controller.

A. Konami Original Controller

The Konami Original Controller (or KOC) is the normal Beatmania IIDX
controller. It consists of a turntable and a keyboard that is easily
reversible - just slide it out and flip it around. The controller is
also very easy to maintain.

If you want the original Japanese version of the KOC, then your best
bets are Play-Asia or eBay. Be prepared to pay an arm and a leg (and 
possibly your first-born, depending on who you get a controller from) for 
shipping, however. The Japanese controllers can be found for $60 to $90 
plus shipping. The Japanese controllers have keys with plastic plungers 
that do tend to stick, but careful modification can eliminate the risk 
of that happening.

The US KOC comes with the Beatmania Bundle ($64.99 at your local video 
game store). The US controller has a rounded end and a lower profile, and 
is lighter than the Japanese controller. The US controller's keys are also 
spring-loaded, which means they shouldn't stick. However, the turntable 
is quite tight, and it doesn't spin quite as freely as the Japanese 
controller - some quick work with a screwdriver will fix this. The US 
controller is not currently available outside of the Beatmania Bundle.

The type of controller you get is your personal preference - your mileage
will vary.

B. Arcade Style Controllers (ASCs)

If you've played in the arcade and would like to have a controller similar
to the one on the arcade machine, I highly recommend an arcade style
controller. You have several options here, but be prepared to pay not only
an arm and a leg, but also your first-born and quite possibly your left 

KONAMI ASC - http://www.play-asia.com

First, we have the Konami Arcade Style Controller. This is the official
controller, and it's easy maintenance with a reversible keypad like the
Konami Original Controller (although you need a screwdriver here). The keys
don't stick as often, and are spaced the same way they are on an arcade 
console. The turntable is also much larger than on the KOC. Also, two 
Konami ASCs can be linked together for doubles play. Unfortunately, the 
only way you can get one at the moment is to import it (I recommend 
Play-Asia), and that will run you around 400 bucks plus shipping (and the 
shipping is expensive, as these things weigh a ton compared to the KOC).

DESKTOP ARCADE ASC - http://www.desktoparcade.com

Closer to home, there's also the Desktop Arcade ASC. This controller is
less expensive than the Konami ASC, but it's just as durable and highly
customizable. You can choose different colors or even artwork to decorate
your controller, and you can even get keys that light up - something that
even the Konami ASC, in all its arcade-style goodness, cannot boast. The
keyboard is not reversible by default, but you can choose to get this as
an option (ASCs must be like cars - there are so many options, but alas
you cannot get air conditioning or power windows). You can also choose
from several different kinds of keys, to suit your play style.

A DASC will run you $225 plus shipping (OR get a special doubles setup 
for $420), and if you want an ASC, this is highly recommended unless the
DASC is for some reason not available or you absolutely want the Konami 

DJDAO ASC - http://www.dj-dao.com

Here's a controller that I was not aware of in earlier versions of the FAQ. 
The DJDAO controller is a Chinese-built controller, and is an excellent 
alternative to the Konami ASC.

Be warned that there are several versions of the controller - be sure the one
you're getting has a key layout that can be used in IIDX. For the purposes of 
this guide, you'll want either the FP7 (same size as the KOC) or the Platinum 
Edition controller (the ASC). The FP7 is not yet available.

The Platinum Edition takes the term "arcade-style controller" to the next
level. It's very arcade-accurate: all the controllers come with light-up 
keys and turntable LEDs at no extra charge! The builder also uses high-
quality Sanwa keys that have about the same profile as the keys on a Konami

If you're pretty sure you're not going to want a Konami ASC, it's a toss-up
between this controller and the DASC. This controller will cost you about
$270 plus $110 shipping. The DJDAO controller isn't easy to get, either -
there is a thread on Bemanistyle's forums (http://www.bemanistyle.com -
registration required) that should help you out.

There are other options in addition to these. You can even build your own
controller if you are so inclined - and you don't even have to humiliate
yourself by using the Rave Discman for parts! For more info, visit your 
local Bemani community today!


A. Gameplay Basics & the Groove Gauge


The concept of Beatmania IIDX is simple enough to explain, but deceptively
hard to actually get up and do. There are eight lanes on the screen, and 
white, black, or red lines (notes) scroll down it as the song plays. At the 
bottom of these lanes is a red line, and a stretched out diagram of your 
controller. The object of the game is to hit the corresponding keys as the 
small lines reach the big red line. When you see a red note, scratch the 
turntable in either direction (it doesn't matter which).

When you hit a note, you'll get judged in one of five ways: Flashing Great
(also known as "Just Great" or "Perfect Great"), Great, Good, Bad, or Poor. 
These have greater meaning, as discussed later in section III.B, but here's 
their basic meaning:

- Flashing Great: Best possible accuracy. You nailed that note.

- Great: You hit the note just a tiny bit too early or too late.

- Good: You hit the note slightly earlier or later.

- Bad: You hit the note way too late or too early. These are fairly hard to get,
	but why would you want to?

- Poor: You hit the note extremely early or late, hit the wrong key, or you
	didn't hit the key at all. You can also get poors by accidentally
	hitting notes twice, but these won't hurt you too much.

The game also keeps track of your current "combo". Both kinds of Greats and
Goods will add to your combo; Bads and Poors will reset your combo to 0. Extra
poors resulting from hitting notes twice will not reset your combo.

You may quit a song at any time by pressing and holding Start and Select at
the same time. This will fail you out of whatever song you were playing.


The key to progressing through the game is the Groove Gauge - that funny-
looking bar at the bottom of the screen. It starts at 22%, and goes up or down 
as you play. Different accuracies increase or decrease your groove gauge at 
different rates. Flashing Greats, Greats, and Goods increase your gauge; Bads 
and Poors decrease it.

To clear the song, you have to get it to 80% or higher. The gauge cannot drop 
below 2% in Arcade, Beginner's, or Free Mode, so don't worry about failing 
out in the middle of the song (but you'd better get it back to 80% before 
the song ends).

If your gauge drops to 0% in Expert or Class Mode, you fail immediately and 
the game ends.

B. Beatmania IIDX Grading Systems

After each song, you're judged on your accuracy and given a score, also known 
as the "money score". I have no idea why this is, as you get no actual money
for clearing songs. Or maybe Konami is trying to tell you that you owe them?

Anyway, the money score is not what is used to determine your grade - your 
EX Score is. Your EX Score is based on the number of Flashing Greats and 
Greats you get. The highest possible EX score is twice the number of notes
in the song.

Flashing Great: 2 points
Great: 1 point
Good, Bad, Poor: 0 points

The grading system is as follows:

AAA - Greater than 8/9 of highest possible EX score
AA - Greater than 7/9 and less than 8/9 of highest possible EX score
A - Greater than 6/9 and less than 7/9 of highest possible EX score
B - Greater than 5/9 and less than 6/9 of highest possible EX score
C - Greater than 4/9 and less than 5/9 of highest possible EX score
D - Greater than 3/9 and less than 4/9 of highest possible EX score
E - Greater than 2/9 and less than 3/9 of highest possible EX score
F - Less than 2/9 of highest possible EX score. You practically have to
	just sit there and do nothing to earn an F.

These bonuses are inclusive, meaning that if you get 8/9 of the highest
possible EX score, you will get an AAA, etc.

In Arcade and Free Modes only, you can earn several bonuses depending on 
how you did. Note that these scores are added to your money score, not 
your EX score:

- Border Bonus: 5730 points. You get this bonus if you finished the song
	with your groove gauge at 80%. 

- Great Bonus: 3110 points.. Awarded if you get all Greats and Flashing 
	Greats on a song. Poors	resulting from extra note hits don't 

- Perfect Bonus: 4620 points. Awarded if you get all Flashing Greats
	on a song. Unless that song is extremely easy, if you get this
	bonus, you are either God or just extremely good at this game.
	Again, extra poors do not count.

- Great+Border Bonus: 11900 points. Awarded by qualifying for both the
	Border Bonus and the Great Bonus. This is possible by getting
	just enough extra poors to reduce your gauge to 80%, without
	breaking your combo or getting a good.

- Perfect+Border Bonus: 19900 points. As you might have guessed, to get this 
	bonus, you must qualify for both the Border Bonus and the Perfect 
	Bonus. If you get this bonus, you truly are God, as it is almost 
	(but not quite) impossible to get, even on the easiest songs.

C. The Score Graph, Rivalries, and Ghost Mode


Beatmania IIDX 11: IIDX RED introduces a new feature for tracking your scores:
the score graph. Basically, if you choose to use the arcade layout in single-
player mode (that is, the one that shows both sets of lanes on the screen),
the side you're not using will be replaced with a screen containing three bar

- Blue bar: This is your current EX score.

- Green bar: This represents the pace you were on when you got your highest EX
	score. Obviously, if you've never played the song before, it'll be
	the same as the blue graph.

- Red bar: If you choose to use it, this graph represents the pace your 
	selected rival was on when s/he got his/her highest EX score. There's 
	a greyed out section that goes up to their top score, since they've
	obviously played the song already.

The graphs also have four lines on them - these lines represent the thresholds
for getting grades of A, AA, and AAA respectively. The topmost line is the
highest possible score, and unless you've broken the game somehow, none of the
bars should exceed this.

To turn off the score graph, go to the modifier select menu and use the
turntable to select the option that has fewer katakana (I don't have a
transliteration for this yet).


You can now have DJ battles with your friends without having to write a bunch 
of crap down. Thanks to the new rivalry function in Beatmania IIDX 11: IIDX
RED, you can load up to five other players' data onto your memory card.

To do this, choose "Rival Data Management" on the main menu. You'll be taken
to a little menu:

- Rename: Lets you choose a different DJ name. Be sure to change this back if
	you're in the middle of doing some Internet Ranking courses, or else
	you'll end up registering multiple DJ names, and that would be bad.

- Edit Rival List: Go here to load your rival data.

Choose "Edit Rival List", and you'll be taken to a menu that has five slots
and an option that says "Load Rival Data". Insert a memory card containing
rival data into Memory Card SLOT 2 (NOT SLOT 1!) and choose that option to 
load the rival data onto the list. Again, you can only load up to five rivals 
at a time. From here, you can delete any rival data you don't need.

Once you've done this, go to the song select screen in either Arcade or Free
Mode and press Start to bring up the modifier menu. Here, you can use the
turntable to select a rival (you can only choose one at a time). Their scores
will appear next to yours on the song select screen, and the game will tell
you how much higher or lower your score is. And if that wasn't enough, two
new song folders will appear: "Higher than Rival" and "Lower than Rival". I
shouldn't have to explain what these folders mean.

As stated earlier, your chosen rival's score will appear on the score graph as
a red bar. This bar will stop increasing once it reaches your rival's score.


Ghost Mode is a neat little function that allows you to compare how you're
currently doing in a song to your best score or your chosen rival's best
score. Basically, next to your note judgments (they look something like "GREAT
573"), there'll be a little number - this is your interval to what you had at
that point in the song when you got your high score (or when your rival got
his/her high score). If it's red, your score is lower than the high score; if
it's white, your score is higher and you're doing just fine.

Ghost Mode doesn't really serve much of a purpose aside from applying a number
to what you're seeing when you look at the score graph. It can be turned off 
on the modifier select menu by pressing Select.


A. Arcade Mode

Arcade Mode is basically the core of the game (though you'll probably be
spending most of your time in Free Mode). When you select it on the main
menu, the game will ask you if there are one or two players. In 1P mode,
you're given a choice from Normal, Double, or Double Battle.

- Normal is what it says it is. It's just the regular game mode, with Light7,
7keys, and Another7 difficulties.

- Double requires two controllers, and has special charts (all the difficulty 
numbers will be doubled - Light7 becomes Light14, for instance). 

- Double Battle is like Double, but is only for fun. In Double Battle, both 
sides have the same notecharts. Scores in Double Battle are not saved.

In this mode only, you can get an Extra Stage by meeting certain
requirements. You can't get an Extra Stage on Light7 mode, but on 7keys and
Another modes, you can do the following to get the Extra Stage:

- If your third song is a 6-star or higher, just clear it.
- If your third song is a 5-star, finish it with a full groove gauge.
- If your third song is a 4-star, full combo the song.

You can also get a special Extra Stage by meeting a special requirement:

- To unlock Genocide (and its result screen), AA three Anothers with Hard.
	The last one has to be a 7-star or higher.

You're given the opportunity to choose modifiers and such before you play
Genocide, but if you meet the following requirements, you will unlock the 
One More Extra Stage:

- To unlock Piano Concerto No. 1 - Scorpion Fire (and its special result 
screen), get an A or higher on Genocide Another7 on Hard mode.

You will be thrown right into the OMES without the chance to choose modifiers, 
so take that into consideration before starting Genocide Another7, or else 
you might end up in trouble later, although the in-song Hi-Speed Selector
may save you in the end...

A list of all the songs, their difficulties, and their notecounts, can be
found in section VI of the FAQ.

B. Expert Mode

Expert Mode allows you to play the Expert courses for Internet Ranking
purposes. You can also create your own special nonstop courses for friendly
challenges, and play them right here.

For more info on Expert Mode, jump on over to section VII.A of the FAQ.

C. Class (Dan) Mode

Class Mode is the only mode not spelled out in English on the main menu.
It can be a rather important mode, as it allows you to gauge your skills 
at IIDX and compare them to players around the world in yet more Internet
Ranking. For more information on this mode, check out section VII.C of the

D. Beginner's Mode

Just starting out in IIDX? Go here to learn how to play! Unfortunately,
the tips are in Japanese, but if you've read section III of the FAQ, you
shouldn't need them. 

Basically, you're given a list of three levels, conveniently named Levels
1, 2, and 3. The game then gives you different lessons about the game...
but it's in kana and kanji, so odds are if you're reading this, you won't 
be able to read that. Just press Start to skip it.

Level 1 gives you a short list of simplified charts all ranked 1 star. 
Level 2 adds some 2-stars to the list, and Level 3 adds some 3-stars. You
shouldn't need to come here, but if you feel you need the practice before
tackling Light7, then by all means do so.

E. Free Mode

You'll be spending a lot of time here if you're not interested in Arcade
Mode at all. Free Mode allows you to play for as long as you want without
the downtime of Arcade Mode. You can choose from all the songs (except for
the ones you haven't unlocked yet), and any scores you get here are saved
(unless you use certain no-no modifiers, mentioned in section V of the FAQ).
Yes, you can play Genocide and Piano Concerto No. 1 - Scorpion Fire in
Free Mode without having to do any work to get them. You just won't get
their result screens here.

You can sort the songs in different orders, such as alphabetical, by
difficulty, which songs you haven't cleared, etc. You can also choose to
have the game display your EX score instead of your money score.

Other than that, there's really not much else to say. Go nuts!

Oh, one more thing - if you're feeling lazy, you can choose to have the
game autoplay songs for you (or one or both sides in Double mode).

F. Training Mode

Training Mode allows you to practice some or all of any song that's giving
you trouble. There's no need to worry about clearing, failing, Internet
Ranking, etc here. Training Mode consists mainly of a menu that allows
you to choose a song, your desired modifiers, and two special features:

- You can choose to play a segment of a song by choosing a starting and
	ending measure.

- You can slow the song down if you need to practice certain patterns, or
	if you just feel like screwing around with the songs by slowing
	them down.

After you play whichever part of the song you want to play, the game will
give you an accuracy breakdown and tell you which measures you had trouble
with. You can also save replays, but you can only save one at a time, and
they disappear when you turn off your console. That's it for this mode.

G. Original Course Setting

This mode allows you to create your own 5-song courses. You can combine any
five songs (or even five of the same song, if you are so inclined), and
play them on any difficulty. This is mainly for friendly challenges and such,
but the game will save your highest scores on each original course. You can
create up to six original courses.

H. Records

Records Mode just shows you the top scores for Arcade Mode, Class Mode, and
Expert Mode, and lets you erase the lists if you want.

Note that there are no individual song records here. If you want to see
those, go to Arcade or Free Mode, press Start to bring up the modifiers, then
press Select to make your high score (EX score), max combo, and miss count

I. Options

This mode will let you change game options, like difficulty, screen settings,
sound and video settings, etc. Not much explanation is needed here.

J. Save/Load

You may never have to use this menu. Save/Load allows you to save your data,
load data from the memory card, or turn on Auto Save. Go to this menu when you 
start the game, turn on Auto Save, and forget this menu ever existed. 

On another note, be very careful not to turn off the power, reset, or remove 
the memory card while the game is saving. I am not responsible for any 
instances of controller breakage due to someone not following these 


The game has lots of different modifiers available, allowing you to, er,
modify your gameplay experience in different ways. Some modifiers make the 
game easier, some make it harder, and some will make others think you've
gone totally insane. You can set whatever modifiers you want before each
song, but there are some exceptions.

In Battle mode, both players can select their own Hi-Speed mods if this 
ability is enabled in the options menu.

A. Hi-Speed

Hi-Speed is the most useful modifier in the game. Hi-Speed spreads out and
increases the speed of the notes on the chart, making them easier to read.
This makes the game easier by providing you, the player, with fewer notes to
concentrate on at any given time.

There are eleven different Hi-Speed settings, in increments of 0.5: Hi-Speed 
0, Hi-Speed 0.5, Hi-Speed 1, Hi-Speed 1.5, and so on up to Hi-Speed 5.

These numbers are not factors like 1x or 2x; they're just arbitrary numbers 
that pretty much just say which ones are faster and which ones are slower -
Hi-Speed 3 is faster than Hi-Speed 2, for instance. This is good because 
trying to play a song at zero times its normal speed would be quite annoying,
to say the very least.

Note that you can also change Hi-Speed settings just before a song begins or
even during the song. For more information on this, check out section V.J of
the FAQ.

B. Easy/Hard

Easy and Hard change the Groove Gauge in special ways, although Hard doesn't
necessarily make the game harder.

Easy is a staple modifier for beginner players, and causes the gauge to build
up more quickly as you get (flashing) greats and goods. The game will also
help by causing the gauge to drop more slowly if you get bads or poors. This
is a great way to clear songs that are giving you trouble for the purpose of
unlocking things, but be aware that an Easy Clear is the lowest-level clear
you can get, and has less value than a regular clear and a Hard Clear for
the purposes of Internet Ranking (see section VIII), which means that once 
you've gotten the hang of the game, you should waste little time changing 
Easy Clears to normal or Hard Clears. 

Speaking of Hard, Hard modifies the gauge so that it is always red. This
means that you no longer need to get it above 80% to clear the song (in fact,
the gauge will start totally full) - you can clear the song with just 2%

Don't think that this gives you more breathing room, though - the mod
is called "Hard", after all. Any miss (bad or poor) will cause the gauge to
drop twice as fast as normal. A few misses in a row will drop your gauge to
almost zilch. If it's any consolation, the gauge refills at its normal rate.
However, it's possible to stay alive if you have problems by simply getting
more goods and greats than misses in a hard part of the song.

You can't choose Easy or Hard in Class Mode.

C. Random/Mirror (or both?)

Random randomly randomizes the notechart of the song you're playing. This
randomization has no effect on the turntable, however. It also doesn't
scramble up the notes - that would be way too hard. Instead, it just
randomizes each lane. If you're having problems with a particular song, 
Random may very well make it easier. Unfortunately, you're just as likely 
to get a horribly crappy chart, so use Random at your own risk.

Mirror, on the other hand, simply inverts the chart (again ignoring the
turntable) so that it's a mirror image of itself. Mirror can be a big help 
sometimes, but it can also hurt, so again, use it at your own risk.

Random and Mirror can be used together, but this has very little noticeable
effect on the game - the game will just mirror the randomized notechart.

Random and Mirror can't be chosen in Class Mode.

D. Random+/Mirror+

Random+ is an oddball modifier. It's like Random, but different. Random+
randomizes the notechart, but ALSO includes the turntable in this

Mirror+ is a combination of Random+ and Mirror. First, the game will mirror
the song's notechart. Then it will take the turntable and swap its notes
into a random lane. All the notes in that lane will end up being in the
turntable lane.

Random+ and Mirror+ can be used together, but there will be no noticeable
effect on the game. Only do this if you're extremely nit-picky about what
mods you will and won't use on a song.

Random+ and Mirror+ can potentially make playing songs more fun, but it
should only be used for fun. The game will not save scores set with Random+
or Mirror+, and for this reason, Internet Ranking sites will not accept
those scores, either. Sorry, but you'll have to use the other mods.

Random+ and Mirror+ can't be chosen in Class Mode. Choosing this in Expert 
Mode will disqualify you from Internet Ranking.

E. S-Random/S-Random+

Remember how I mentioned that Random only randomizes the lanes and not
individual notes? Well, S-Random (also known as Super Random) randomizes
the notes. This is only recommended for very skilled players, although you
can experiment all you want, because just like Random+ and Mirror+, scores
set with S-Random won't be saved, and IR sites won't accept them, either.

S-Random+ is the same, only it adds the turntable into the randomization.

You can use S-Random with Mirror, but what's the point? Also, there's no
S-Mirror mode, because that would be just as pointless.

You can't choose this in Class Mode. Choosing this in Expert Mode will
disqualify you from Internet Ranking.

F. Hidden/Sudden (or both?)

Hidden doesn't hide the notes entirely (because that would be just plain
evil) - rather, the notes will scroll normally, and then disappear at a
certain point. This isn't extremely useful, however, but some do claim
that it helps on some of those horribly offsync songs (e-motion, I'm
looking in your direction).

Sudden is the opposite of Hidden, and can be much more useful if you know
when to use it. Remember where the notes disappeared when you used Hidden?
Well, that's where the notes will show up if you use Sudden. Now, you'd
think that such a modifier was totally useless, but if you use Sudden on
very slow songs, it will have the same benefit as a Hi-Speed mod - Sudden
will give you fewer notes to concentrate on at a time, which is what the
Hi-Speed mods do. The notes are just compressed in a smaller space, but
can be spread out with a real Hi-Speed mod if needed.

Hidden and Sudden can also be used at the same time, but instead of hiding
the notes entirely, the notes will just blink on screen for less than a
second about halfway down each lane. This modifier is very difficult to use,
and you should be quite proud of yourself if you're able to clear harder
songs with both Hidden and Sudden. Not many people can do this. 

On another note, you can use the benefits of Sudden all the time, even 
when you aren't actually using Sudden! All you have to do is get a towel or
something and drape it over part of the screen and voila - adjustable 
Sudden! However, the game now has a built-in feature that does this, so you
may choose to use it instead. For more info, see the next section.

Hey, guess what! You can't choose this in Class Mode, either!

G. Hidden+/Sudden+ (or both?)

New to console versions of Beatmania IIDX, Hidden+ and Sudden+ will cover up
parts of the screen. However, unlike regular Hidden and Sudden, you choose
what parts of the screen you want to cover up - it's like built-in towel!
Like their older counterparts, Sudden+ is going to be far more useful to you
than Hidden+. Keep in mind that you must choose either mod on the song select
screen if you plan to be using them.

To adjust Hidden+ or Sudden+, hold Start and spin the turntable to move the
large gray box up or down. It's best to do this before the song begins. If
for some reason you need the box gone right now, tap the Start button twice
and it'll go away. If you need it again, just tap Start twice again to bring
it back.

Sudden+ can make notes easier to read, and is great for when you feel that a 
Hi-Speed mod just isn't enough.

H. 5keys

Formerly a game mode like Light7, 5keys will hide lanes 6 and 7. You are not
responsible for anything in those lanes, and those notes will be subtracted
from the overall note count for scoring purposes.

5keys is mainly for training purposes, or if you were raised on the original
Beatmania series and need a leg up into Beatmania IIDX. Scores set with the
5keys mod will not be saved.

This mod can't be chosen outside of Arcade or Free Modes.

I. Autoscratch

Autoscratch can be a useful tool, but at the same time, it can also be very,
very cheap. With Autoscratch, you are no longer responsible for any turntable
scratches - the game does them for you! However, scores set with Autoscratch
will not be saved, so use this only as a training tool.

As for Internet Ranking, however, Autoscratch will disqualify you if you try 
to use it. So don't.

J. Using the Hi-Speed Selector

In Beatmania IIDX 13: DistorteD (arcade), an extra option was added that lets
you change Hi-Speed options during gameplay. Well, guess what? Now you can do
it in your very own home, as the Hi-Speed Selector has been ported to IIDX 

To change Hi-Speed options during gameplay, hold down Start and press a white
key to decrease the Hi-Speed by 0.5, or press a black key to increase it by 
0.5. This is extremely useful in Expert Mode, where you can only choose one 
Hi-Speed mod for the entire course. Thanks to this nifty little feature, you 
can now circumvent that at your leisure.


Some of you may be wondering, "well, it's fine and dandy that all these new 
features have been assigned to the Start button, but how are we gonna exit out 
of songs?" It's simple, my friend - as I mentioned back in section III.A of the
FAQ, just press and hold Start and Select, and you'll quit the song.

A. Expert Mode

Expert Mode consists of several nonstop courses used for Internet Ranking
purposes (see section VIII of the FAQ). When I say "nonstop", I don't really
mean it - between songs, there's no time limit before the next song begins,
so feel free to get up and get something to eat, go out with friends, do
whatever before coming back and starting the next song. I have left the game
running on the result screen for an hour to find it still waiting for me to
continue on.

Anyway, I digress. Expert Mode has a special groove gauge that is always
red, and starts at 100%. The gauge drops a little more slowly than the
regular gauge, but it also builds back up much more slowly. Whenever it
hits 0, you immediately fail the course. The gauge doesn't refill between
songs, and there are five songs in each course. 

In Expert Mode, you can use all the modifiers, although, as mentioned in 
section V of the FAQ, some of them will disqualify you from Internet
Ranking. Keep in mind that the mods you choose will be in effect for the
entire course, so don't choose, say, Hi-Speed 4 if you know there'll be
a 190 BPM song in the course unless you can read that fast.

All the courses have Light7, 7keys, and Another7 (double for Double mode)

B. Expert Courses

Only the first eight courses are initially available - the rest must
be unlocked. See section IX.B. of the FAQ for more info.

C. Class Mode

Class courses consist of four songs and are nonstop courses just like
Expert courses. However, you cannot choose just any modifiers - you
can only choose Hi-Speed mods. However, you can choose what Hi-Speed
mod you want for each song in the course, so if you know each song's BPM, 
you can adjust the course to fit your play style. The game will also
save these settings, in case you want to retry the course later.

Class Mode also has a rather quirky groove gauge that's always red, but
it seems to increase and decrease just as much as the normal gauge. Keep
it above 0% to stay alive.

Class Mode has 17 courses, arranged in order of increasing difficulty.
Initially, all of the kyu courses (7-kyu through 1-kyu) and 1-dan are
available. To unlock the higher dan courses, clear the highest one you've
unlocked. If you do well enough, you may unlock the next two dan courses,
but you'll usually unlock just the next one.

In Double mode, the courses only have three songs each, and they start
at 5-kyu.

A. What the Heck is Internet Ranking?

Internet Ranking allows to pit yourself against IIDX players from around
the world on the default Expert Courses. No, you can't use that "Roman 5"
course you made for Internet Ranking purposes.

The official Internet Ranking site is located at:


Unfortunately, if you're reading the guide right now, Internet Ranking is
done and over. I highly recommend heading over to VJ Army for all your IIDX 
ranking needs.

VJ Army can be found at http://www.vjarmy.com/iidx/.

B. How Do I Join the Fun?

Internet Ranking is closed, but this section will stay, as the info should
be valid for any future IIDX games.

You can submit scores for as many Expert courses as you want, but you may only
post one Class course score at a time - your most recent score takes 
precedence over any others. Remember that Class Mode exists to gauge your IIDX
ability, so it wouldn't make sense for you to have to post ALL your Class Mode

Anyway, to get involved in Internet Ranking, simply do the following:

1. Go to the official site (listed above). If you're entering an EXPERT MODE
	password, click "Internet Ranking". If you're entering a CLASS MODE
	password, click "Class".

2. Click the top link (make sure your pop-up blocker is disabled), and a
	window with several entry fields will appear.

3. Enter your information. The fields are as follows:

	- DJ Name: The DJ name you used to get your password. It must be the

	- Mail: Your e-mail address. These won't be visible on the
		ranking page.

	- Password: Your Internet Ranking password. For some odd
		reason, the game hyphenates Expert Mode passwords - remove 
		it, or the password won't work.

	- Districts: If you live in Japan, choose what city or
		prefecture you live in. If you don't (which is more likely if
		you're reading this), just pick one at random. Remember which
		one you picked, because you'll need to use the same one each

	- Comment: Enter a comment about the course. Abusive comments
		will be deleted.

4. Click the left link (NOT the right one!), and you're done!

If you'd like to see the rankings for each course (or overall), click the
third link on the main Internet Ranking page and choose the course and
difficulty you'd like to see. The little "SP 7keys/SP Light7/etc." boxes
will take you to some lists of rankings, sorted by prefecture.

For Class Mode, click the third link from the top - this will take you to
a list of the Class Courses. The top one is 10-dan, and the bottom one is


A. Unlockable Charts


To unlock Gambol Another7/Another14 in Free Mode, clear the Slake Course on
Another. The Slake Course is a backside course, so you'll have to clear the
initially-available Expert courses to get it to show up.

If you have to, set the game's difficulty to 1 and play the course on Easy.
Don't forget to change it back when you're done.


To unlock eRAseRmOToRpHAntOM, go to Arcade Mode, and make sure you're in the
All Music folder. Switch the difficulty to Another, and head for those weird
little question marks (which give you a random song when chosen). Qualify for
an Extra Stage, and your Extra Stage shall be eRAseRmOToRpHAntOM Another.
Whether you pass or fail it, it's permanently unlocked in Free Mode.

Note that you don't have to use Hard Mode. In fact, you can set the game to
Level 1 and play with 5keys and Easy enabled, and you can still get it.

B. Backside Internet Ranking Courses

To unlock the backside Internet Ranking courses, simply qualify for Internet
Ranking in the first set of courses (get to at least the third stage). You'll
unlock one backside course for each initially-available course you get an IR
password for.

C. Custom Interfaces

A few customizations are initially available - one of the frames and one of
	the note bursts, for instance. The rest need to be unlocked.

To unlock components of the custom interfaces, do the following:

- Frames: A new frame will unlock every 15 times you play an Expert course. 
	For the more impatient among you, you can accomplish this by failing
	or exiting out of the courses.

- Turntables: Different turntable designs will unlock at 500 and 1000
	DJ points. DJ points are earned by playing songs - the higher your
	grade, the more DJ points you get.

- Note Bursts: The two note bursts will unlock when you clear 1-dan and 8-
	dan respectively. Whether you play on Single or Double doesn't

- Song Progress Bar: That little thing on the left that scrolls down as the
	song plays. Play an Expert course for one of them, and play a Class
	course for the other.

- Dancing Mascots: To unlock cute little dancing mascots that will appear
	in front of the music video or score graph, clear 3-kyu, 1-dan,
	3-dan, 6-dan, and 8-dan. It doesn't matter if you play on Single
	or Double.

And before anyone asks, no, you do not have to do everything in those lists
before everything appears. So one mascot will appear if you pass 3-kyu, and
another will appear when you pass 1-dan, and so on.

Note that when you've unlocked all the different options for each part of
the interface (except the frame), a "random" option will appear. Selecting
this option will randomize that particular design - for example, selecting
it for the turntable will make a randomly-selected turntable design appear
each time you play a song.

Also, if you unlock all the different note bursts, a "S-Random" option
will appear. Those brave enough to activate it will notice that every note
you hit will use a different, randomized note burst graphic.

D. Extra Stage & One More Extra Stage

As a reminder for those playing Arcade Mode:

- To get Genocide as your Extra Stage, AA three songs on Another with Hard. 
	The last one has to be a 7-star or higher.

- To get the One More Extra Stage, get Genocide as your Extra Stage, then 
	get an A on it on Another with Hard.

E. Special Expert Courses

In Original Course Setting mode, if you enter any of the following names:


...you'll get a secret course, made up of songs containing videos done by
each VJ listed. These aren't Internet Ranking courses, though - they still
count as original courses.

Course listing:

- HES course: Outer Wall, Spiral Galaxy, Andromeda, Resonate 1794, Earth Scape
- F-FLY course: Texture, Oosanbashi, Move Me, Les filles balancent, Close 
	Your Eyes for Me
- GYO course: Speedy Cat, Car of Your Dreams, Taiyo, Key, Red Zone
- GOLI course: Fly Away to India, Fake Time, MAX 300, Gigadelic, A
- MAYA course: Love Again..., Horizon, Ageha, Secret of Love, Genocide

F. Result Screens

Gallery Mode (which I did not mention earlier because it has little gameplay
significanc) is a special mode where you can gaze in awe at all the result
screens you've earned (or at all the pretty blank spaces if you haven't
earned any). Here's how you earn all 59 result screens:

1-3: Get an AAA on any song.
4-5: Get an AA on any song.
6-7: Get an A on any song.
8-21: Daily Expert course result screens. You can get two pictures each day.
