    'DJ Syndrome' is the main tagline of the marketing campaign for 
    Beatmania 4th Mix ~The Beat Goes On~. It's also now a guide to Beatmania 
    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. Also, the focus of this document is 
    currently the Beatmania series of Playstation (PSX) games, although much 
    more is covered.
    
    This is the main document in my DJ Syndrome series of FAQs, and contains 
    not only play information, such as how to unlock hidden songs and song 
    lists, but it also lists a lot of other information that may prove very 
    useful for the BEMANI series player, such as soundtrack info, and info 
    on things such as the BEMANI LCD portables. If you are looking for just 
    play information on a specific title, I have condensed the information 
    on all games that are covered in the Quick Guide section in to short, 
    game-specific FAQs. Please note, however, that this FAQ contains all of 
    the information that is in the game-specific FAQs, and then some. Also, 
    these game-specific FAQs are lower on my list of things to work on, so 
    they will not necessarily be updated at the same time that this FAQ 
    is...
    
    A final note: As many readers may have noticed, I have become very busy 
    with projects other than FAQs. Thus, I won't be releasing updates to 
    this work on as regular of a basis as I previously have. Being the big 
    Beatmania fan, I'll try to co-incide this document's updates with new 
    Beatmania releases. Thus, expect new ones every few months or so. Also, 
    BEMANI games are coming out so quickly that I'm having trouble keeping 
    up, so please forgive any errors/ommissions.
    
    
             ___________________________________________________
    _____Aim:
    
    When this document was first started, it was aimed at being a reference 
    piece for the existing Playstation Beatmania games, providing song 
    lists, hidden song/mode info, and any other pertinant information. 
    Although it has obviously expanded since then, the document was 
    considered to have it's first full release (ver.1.00) upon this pre-
    requisite's completion. If this work is to ever include the above info 
    for all of the BEMANI games (home and arcade), then it will hit v.2.00 
    status, although this happening is extremely unlikely. The new focus is 
    simply to continue to present BEMANI information in the same style, 
    quality, and quantity as has been established, as well as including any 
    extra information (such as lyrics, and name sources) that may be of 
    interest to the readers.
    
    
    
    0.02: Beatmania Quick Guide_________________________________
    
    
    Overall, here's how things work: Each disc has a core set of songs that 
    will be available no matter how badly you score. There are also a set of 
    hidden songs for each stage after the first that you much get certain 
    scores in certain genres to open up. Once you play a song, it's 
    available in Free Mode and Training Mode. A single PSX Beatmania Memory 
    Card Save can only hold a single Append Disc's save information (4th Mix 
    and beyond are different stories), so I would personally recommend a 
    different Memory Card for each Append disc (and don't forget to mark 
    them...).
    
    
    As for hints/techniques, no long techniques section here, just three 
    main tips:
    
    - Practice, practice, practice.
    
    - Use the training mode - it's invaluable.
    
    - Buy the controller that was made for the game.
    
    
    And now for the lowdown and the important information on the 
    releases...:

    _____Beatmania (Arcade & Append Discs):
    
    Title:   Beatmania
    System:  PSX
    
    Intro:   The Playstation game that started it all, the first Beatmania 
    release includes songs from the original Arcade release (1st Mix, if you 
    will) and the 2nd Mix Arcade release, as well as original Playstation 
    tracks. The first disc, entitled 'Arcade' are the tracks from the 
    arcade, and the second disc, entitled 'Append' (the first of many as it 
    turns out...) has nine non-arcade  and 3rd Mix tracks, including a remix 
    of the Metal Gear Solid Main Theme. The Append Disc serves as a sort of 
    add-on disc, as you must first insert the original Arcade Disc. This 2-
    disc set recently went Platinum (one million copies sold).

    __Hidden Songs:
    
    Requirements to get the hidden songs:
    
    Arcade Disc:
    In order to get:   score at least: in this (or one of these) genre(s): 
    
                                       Stage 1:
    japanese hip-hop   60,000          any genre
    konamix            90,000          any genre

    minimal techno     80,000          konamix, techno
    minimal techno     90,000          hip-hop street mix, japanese hip-hop
    
                                       Stage 3:
    drum'n bass mix    50,000          dj battle
    drum'n bass mix    65,000          house
    drum'n bass mix    70,000          minimal techno mix
    hard tekno         90,000          dj battle, minimal techno mix 
    hard tekno         85,000          house

    rave (2nd mix)     100,000         house, minimal techno mix
    
    Append (Yebisu Mix) Disc:
    This disc works a little differently from the others. As far as I can 
    tell you merely have to play certain songs to get the full set, not 
    score a certain number of points. The following combination will open up 
    all the songs:
    
    1st Stage-----2nd Stage-----3rd Stage-----4th Stage
    funk          asian trad.   bossa groove  rest...
    
    That should leave you with all of the rest of the songs (Styl Garage, 
    Spd Garage, Funky Jazz Groove, Hard House, Bigbeat Mix, and Bossa Groove 
    French Version) to choose from in the fourth stage. I'm not positive 
    that this will work every time (at this point it still needs checked a 
    bit) but it's the one that I got to work...

    Title:   Beatmania Append 3rd Mix
    System:  PSX
    
    Intro:   The first separate 'append', or add-on disc for the original 
    Playstation release. The disc features all of songs from the 3rd Mix 
    Arcade release, hence the reason that some of the songs are repeated 
    from the Arcade disc and the original Append disc. As with the first 
    Append disc, you must first insert the original Arcade Disc.

    Title:   Beatmania Append 4th Mix ~the beat goes on~
    System:  PSX
    
    Intro:   In this release we see quite a bit of new features. The first 
    is the addition of the 'just great' (or flashing great) mark. Second, we 
    have the addition of the great/good counter - it will keep track of how 
    many greats/goods you have gotten in a row. We also have a few more 
    options for play, including random and mirror. Add to that a bonus edit 
    mode and a bunch of cool new songs, and you've got yourself a great 
    disc. Also, it's worth noting that this mix is the first major departure 
    of in-game graphics in the Beatmania mixes - you'll find totally 
    different song selection and end of stage graphics, to name a few. It 
    also runs on a 20,000 max per stage point system as opposed to a 10,000 
    max (note that you don't get any extra points for long combos like you 
    do in DDR).
    
    Options:  hidden - the notes disappear partway down the screen.
              double - one player plays both the 1P & 2P sides.
              battle - 1P & 2P both play the same notes, and it's a battle 
               to see who ends up with the higher gauge - even if one 
               player ends under the normally required level, they still go 
               on (which is normal for all modes).
              random - the notes occur in the same places in the songs, but 
               the button that you have to push is randomised (the 
               turntable stays the same). note that it's not totally random  
               - the buttons that you need to push basically swap positions 
               for the entire song (for example, all of the notes that were 
               the middle white key are now the left blue key, and so on).
              mirror - the five buttons are mirrored (ie. the left ones are 
               now right, and the right one are now on the left). note that  
               because there are an odd number of buttons, the middle white 
               button stays put. also, the turntable is unaffected.
    
      (in-game option):
              effects: by pressing the select button during gameplay (ie. 
               during the song) you can turn the effect (selectable in the 
               options menu) on and off.
    
    Getting Bonus Edit Mode:
    To open up the bonus edit mode (which features 'traditional' Beatmania 
    graphics and so-on), first put in the Arcade disc, then Disc Switch to 
    either 3rd Mix or Gottamix, then switch to 4th Mix. You'll be in Bonus 
    Edit mode. (note: I switched from Arcade to 3rd to Gotta to 4th to open 
    up all of the songs - I'm not sure if all of the songs will open up if 
    you only use one of the two discs - more on this as I play more). 
    
    Also, after playing through all of the songs, then booting down the 
    system and just playing regular 4th Mix, none of the Bonus Mix songs 
    came up in training/free mode, which leads me to think that Bonus Mix 
    acts like a whole Append disc, and thus requires a whole separate save 
    (the same as any other Append disc - there can only be one Append disc 
    per save, thus to have all of the songs available at any time, you now 
    need a total of five separate saves - ones for Yebisu, 3rd, Gotta, and 
    Bonus Edit, which all branch off of the original Arcade disc save, and 
    then the 4th Mix save, which is a separate entity.) I have yet to double 
    check this, and after finding that the Bonus Edit songs are available in 
    normal mode as well, it may be a while before I do...

    only played through the mode once, so the songs that I beat the stages

    after the stage that I played them in...)
    
    
    __Hidden Songs:
    In order to get:   Do one of these things:   
    lounge             -   1. Clear Hard mode 5 times.
    dance pop (deep...) |- 2. Beat hard mode without losing.
    deep house         -   3. Clear Expert mode once.
    
    Secret Modes:
    Special Course (Expert Mode):
    Beat Hard mode once.
    
    Another Course (Expert Mode):
    Beat Hard mode 5 times.
    
    Horrible Course (Expert Mode):
    Beat Hard mode 10 times.
    
    Bonus Course (Expert Mode):
    Either beat any of the Expert Mode courses once, and you should get the 
    Bonus Course, or beat Hard 20 times. Note that opening up this course 
    will also open up the Bonus Edit Mode songs for normal gameplay.
    
    Bonus Edit songs available in normal 4th Mix:
    There are two ways to do this - open up the Bonus Course either beating 
    Expert mode or beating Hard 20 times, or play Hard mode 50 times (not 
    necessarily beating it...)
    
    'Another' versions of songs in Hard Mode:
    To get the another version of certain songs in Hard Mode, simply hold 
    the select button - if another version is available, then a symbol 
    saying 'Another' will appear in the area above the 2P symbol. Not all 
    songs have another versions. Also, the another versions of the songs are 
    very similar, and usually just have a few hard passages added - the 
    difficulty (number of stars) stays the same.

    previously, such as Mirror and Random, appear again as well, as does the 
    infamous Bonus Edit Mode. These modes are joined by new ones such as

    __Hidden Songs:
    
    There appear to be two blocks of hidden songs. The first is a set of 
    Dancemania (Hard Version) songs, which includes Operator, The Only Way 
    is Up, and Up on the Floor. These are accessable in Hard Mode on Stage 
    2. I believe that the criteria for this set is to simply beat Hard Mode 
    once.
    
    The second set of bonus songs includes Hell Scraper, Thrash Traxx, Linn 
    1999, and Denim. These are available at least on Normal Mode, and 
    possibly on Hard Mode as well. Frankly, I have no clue how these are 
    opened. It may be performance based, as they tend to be there sometimes 
    and not others.

    Title:   Beatmania GB2: Gacchamix
    System:  GameBoy Color/GameBoy
    
    Intro:   The sequel to the successful Beatmania GB, Gacchamix takes 
    songs from the PSX Gottamix & the LCD AnisonMix, borrows a few from 
    popular musicians, and throws some original tunes into the mix. 
    Gacchamix also sports one of the oddest setups in the series, with the 
    songs grouped by type (Band, J-Girl Pop, etc.) and playable in any order 
    (4 songs in each type). As with it's predacessor, Gacchamix shows that 
    you don't need CD-quality sound to be fun.

    _____Beatmania for WonderSwan:
    
    Title:   Beatmania for WonderSwan
    System:  WonderSwan
    
    Intro:   The only release so far to actually include a turntable, the 
    Wonderswan version of Beatmania includes songs from the 3rd Arcade mix.
    Visually and aurally excellent (the songs even include vocals, 
    incredibly impressive for the little system), the WS version's main 
    drawback is it's lack of songs - there are only 10 initially, and only 
    one real hidden song. Also, it's worth noting that the songs are 
    unchanged from the arcade (unlike BM GB, in which the songs are re-
    formatted for the GameBoy's layout), which ends up making things a bit 
    hard at some points. Also features a continue mode so that allows you to 
    turn the system off, and when you turn it back on, you'll be back at the 
    stage you were on when the system was switched off - a _very_ nice 
    feature...

    (*hidden song)
    
    
    __Hidden songs, mode:
    
    How to get the two hidden songs:
     - These are some of the easiest hidden songs to get - just merely do 
    the highest difficulty songs in each stage in Normal (Stage 1=**, Stage 
    2=***, Stage 3=****) and you'll get hard techno in stage 4. You don't 
    need to win all three in a row - you can continue as much as you want, 
    and as far as I know you don't need a certain score. After you play hard 
    techno, medley will open up in 'free' mode.
    
    How to get the hidden mode:
    In order to open the hidden mode in Expert, Survival, you merely have to 
    complete either Expert Course A or Expert Course B without the turntable 
    or any key help turned on.

    _____Hiphopmania Complete Mix:
    
      !!also known as Beatmania Complete Mix, Beatstage Complete Mix!!
    
    Titles:   Hiphopmania Complete Mix, Beatmania Complete Mix, Beatstage 
              Complete Mix
    System:   Arcades (N.America, Japan, ??)
    
    note: While this is not a quickguide section as the rest of them are, I 
    figured that it is worth including since many of the readers of this 
    document are from North America, and Hiphopmania Complete Mix is the 
    only game in the Beatmania series to be released there.
    
    Intro:    Hiphopmania is the English translation/localization of 
    Beatmania Complete Mix, released in the Japanese arcades in 1998. To my 
    current knowledge, the game is the same as the Japanese version except 
    for the small amount of Japanese text that resides in the game being 
    translated to English (all of the text is in the Practice and How To 
    Play sections). Although it has been available in the North America for 
    quite a while (always under the name Hiphopmania), mass release of the 
    title only started recently. It's first major showing, as well as 
    Konami's first real announcement of support for the title, was at the E3 
    show in L.A. during May of 1999. Wide release started around late-
    September to early-October, to my current knowledge.
    
    All of the Complete Mix games contain the same songs that are in found 
    Beatmania 2nd Mix and Beatmania 3rd Mix (2nd Mix contains all of the 
    songs from the original Beatmania release), and thus, most of the info 
    contained in this document should apply as well. A songlist has been 
    added, and can be found in the Songlist:: Arcades: section under the 
    title Beatmania Complete Mix (I consider the original title to be 
    canon).
    
    As I reside in Japan, I cannot verify any info for the actual 
    Hiphopmania Complete Mix release (having only played it a few times many 
    months ago at the E3 show), and any additional information on this title 
    would be helpful.

    _____Dance Dance Revolution:
    
    Title:    Dance Dance Revolution
    System:   Playstation
    
    Intro:    Konami's first home port of their second, and most popular, 
    BEMANI game, DDR one-ups games like Enix's Bust A Move by offering an 
    optional foot pad controller that requires you to actually get up and 
    move. A single disc release (unlike the Append modes of Beatmania and 
    DDR2ndReMix), DDR was the one of the best-selling game of the first half 
    of 1999 in Japan, and for good reason - it's really good... As a side 
    note, I found this game to be _very_ easy with a normal Playstation 
    controller, but much harder with the Original (mat) controller...

    *hidden song
    
    (exception: Double - in double, there is only one stage, and all of the 
    songs that are normally available in that difficulty are open for play)
    
    
    __Hidden Songs/Modes:
    
    Hidden Songs:
    Unlike Beatmania's hidden songs where as certain score is required, 
    DDR's hidden songs are basically time release. You have to beat the game 
    on a certain mode a certain number of times, or beat a certain number of 
    songs. Once you open up a hidden song, it's becomes 'unhidden' and will 
    show up every game. The following are how to open the hidden songs:
    
    Title:                        Artist:       Requirements to open:
    make a jam!                   u1            clear normal mode 10 times
    boys                          smile.dk      clear 600 songs
    i believe in miracles         hi-rise       clear 700 songs
    paranoia KECT ~clean mix~     2mb           clear hard mode 100 times
    paranoia MAX ~dirty mix~      190           clear hard mode 500 times
    
    A helpful note for getting the paranoia songs:  To get these fairly 
    quickly, play Double mode (either by yourself or with a friend using 
    controller 2) - Double mode only has 1 stage, as opposed to 3. Now you 
    only have to play 100 and 500 songs to open them, as opposed to 300 and 
    1500... This also means that you can get all 5 hidden songs by beating 
    700 songs (of course, 500 of them have to be hard mode doubles...).
    
    Thanks to Petee Hsu for the methods of unlocking the songs, and the tip 
    on double mode...
    
    Hidden Modes:
    At the game mode selection screen (easy, normal, hard) press U. This 
    should take you into the 'Secret Mode' screen. Now enter the following 
    button presses/dance steps:
    
    Another: U, U, D, D, U, U, D, D 
    Maniac:  L, L, R, R, L, L, R, R 
    Double:  U, U, D, D, L, R, L, R 
    Mirror:  L, R, L, R, L, R, L, R
    
    There is also a hidden edit mode that is unlocked by clearing 500 songs 
    (similar to how the five hidden songs are unlocked). Thanks to Petee Hsu 
    for this as well.

    Title:   Dance Dance Revolution 2nd ReMix:
    System:  PSX
    
    Intro:   While the original Playstation DDR was an excellent game, there 
    was some room for improvement. DDR 2ndReMix fixes most of the problems 
    that its predecessor had. The once hidden edit mode was made a staple 
    feature, available from the start. The number of songs in 2ndReMix 
    nearly twice that of the original, and the insanely hard-to-open hidden 
    songs from the first disc make appearences here as well. Although the 
    disc does feature hidden songs, they have much more realistic open 
    requirements. Finally, Konami has also learned from their mistake of not 
    including a Disc Switch option with the first game; 2ndReMix adds this 
    to its roster as we..

    the link-up feature that many of the newer arcade versions feature. By 
    selecting 'Session Mode', drummers can grab a friend, as well as a 
    Guitar Freaks controller or two, and play together. Drummania also 
    features the first high-quality standard controller. While Beatmania had 
    the high-quality DJ Station PRO released around the time of Append 3rd 
    Mix, Drummania has its own high-quality Drummania Controller available 
    right at release, putting other standard controllers (the ASCII 
    Beatmania Controller, the DDR mats, etc.) to shame. Finally, Drummania 
    is the first BEMANI game to be available in a special controller/game 
    package, let alone only available that way. But beside the firsts that 
    the game features, it is also one of the most kinetic and fun BEMANI 
    titles available. Now if we could just do something about that price...

    _____Pop'n Music:
    
    Title:   Pop'n Music
    Systems: PSX, Dreamcast
    
    Take Beatmania, remove the turntables, start buttons, effect button, and 
    one of the action buttons. Next make the nine action buttons really big 
    and colorful. Last, throw in extremely colorful and cartoony characters 
    over a pop-based soundtrack, and an all-together way too cheery 
    interface, and you have Pop'n Music. The lighthearted branch of the 
    BEMANI series, Pop'n Music, is definately that - lighthearted. Boasting 
    loud colors and a different cartoon-style character for each stage, 
    Pop'n Music is a game that is definately for all ages and all types of 
    people. And don't be fooled by the lighthearted take on things - a 20-
    rating song with nine buttons is nothing to laugh at...

    _____Beatmania Controllers:
    
    Title:   Beatmania Controller
    System:  PSX
    Maker:   ASCII (licensed by Konami)
    Price:   JY4990
    Features:None
    
    Intro:   Your standard run-of-the-mill Beatmania controller, this one is 
    lightweight and hard to scratch with. Made by ASCII (who usually makes 
    excellent controllers...), the Beatmania Controller features the five 
    button/one turntable layout from the arcade, as well as start and select 
    buttons located at the top. With a light and slightly rounded body, the 
    controller is confortable enough to hold, but five very clicky buttons 
    (that seem to miss more than you'd like) and one very generally hard-to-
    use turntable you're wishing for the decks from the arcade version. The 
    big drawback to this controller is the turntable - made out of smoothe 
    black plastic, your fingers slide over the turntable more than the 
    turntable itself moving. Although this is fixable (by taking apart the 
    controller and loosening the turntable screw, and then putting a rubber 
    mat of some sort on the top of the turntable), it's more hassle than 
    it's worth. 
    
    Verdict: Better than the standard PSX controller or the Dual Shock, but 
    only use it if you can't find anything else.
    
    
    Title:   DJ Station PRO
    System:  PSX
    Maker:   Konami
    SRP:     JY7800
    Features:Light-up buttons, headphone jack (through direct audio feed) 
              and separate-channel volume controls
    
    Intro:   After looking for this controller for a month and a half, I 
    finally found it at the Sendai Laox, and they had them en force (I'm 
    guessing the availability of this controller is going to go up with the 
    coming release of 4th Mix Append). Anyway, this is definately the 
    Beatmania controller of choice. Aside from actually getting an arcade 
    machine, this is the closest you'll come to the feel of the arcade. The 
    buttons are fairly comfortable, and light up upon pressing (with the 
    help of two AA batteries, included), just like in the arcade. The 
    turntable is a big improvement over the ASCII one, but not nearly as 
    nice as the arcade one. It is much more similar to the arcade; where the 
    ASCII turntable is flat and black without a label, this one has a bit of 
    texture to it, helping your fingers so that they don't slip (a big 
    problem with the ASCII one), and it has a 'record label' and peg, just 
    like in the arcade. It's not nearly the size of the arcade's turntable - 
    the DJ Station PRO's table is about the size of a 45, whereas the arcade 
    has a full-size turntable, but it's still easy to use and feels very 
    comfortable. The design of the controller is very nice as well, giving 
    you the feel of the arcade machine. The controller is fairly light, but 
    not as light as the ASCII one. As for the headphone jack and volume 
    controls, I haven't tried them yet, but I'm guessing that the quality is 
    pretty good - it actually has A/V in and out jacks in the back, so 
    you're getting the audio feed before the television is. The sliders for 
    the volume are fairly nice, and separated into left and right channels. 
    The package comes with the extra A/V cable that you'll need to use the 
    headphone option as well. As a side note, although the DJ Station PRO is 
    much longer than the ASCII controller (the ASCII has it beaten on width 
    by a little bit), the box for the DJSpro is much smaller than the 
    ASCII's Playstation-system-box sized packaging (which also is the size 
    of the DDR controller's package).
    
    Here are some additional comments that I have about the controller now 
    that I've really played with it:
    When I first used this controller, I really liked it. Now that I've 
    truly gotten a chance to use it, I absolutely love it. The turntable is 
    very well made, and very sensitive (which is a good thing), so you can 
    do a very short, quick scratch and still have it count, a definate plus 
    in some of the hard, busier songs. The headphone jack is very, very 
    nice, and provides excellent sound quality and volume (I personally 
    can't turn it up over about 5 without it being so loud that it's 
    uncomfortable). My only quip is that you have to press the buttons 
    directly down if you press it at too much of an angle, it gets caught 
    and doesn't register. However, this is only really a problem with you're 
    laying down and playing... If you're thinking of getting a controller 
    and seriously like the game, PLEASE spend the extra money for this one - 
    you won't be disappointed.
    
    
    Verdict: If you see this puppy, pick it up. The interfaces are all 
    comfortable, it's very attractive and sleek looking, and it's as close 
    to the arcade as you can [currently] get. It's definately worth the 
    extra money, and you'll not regret it in the long run. _The_ Beatmania 
    controller of choice. Period.
    
    
    Title:   DJ Man
    System:  PSX
    Maker:   Joytech (unlicensed)
    SRP:     ~JY4980
    Features:Dual Shock wrist strap, light up buttons
    
    Intro:   OK. I've never used this controller, so all of the info that I 
    have on it is from outside sources. The controller is made of a thick 
    black plastic, is fairly rounded in shape, and is slightly larger than 
    the PSX console. The action keys are shaped like piano keys, and the 
    turntable is lightly textured to prevent finger slippage. It features 
    light-up keys and a Dual Shock compatible wrist strap. It comes in a 
    cardboard 'carrying case' (ie. a cardboard box with a plastic handle). 
    
    Verdict: I can't really say, as I've never used it. The one person that 
    I have recieved an email from who owns the controller is very happy with 
    it, and says that it is on par with the DJ Station PRO. Of course, if 
    you throw the style factor in, the DJ Station PRO blows it out of the 
    water... :)
    
    One thing to note about the above product is that it is -unlicensed-, 
    and is not supported by either Konami or Sony. Just a warning.
    
    
    
    0.03: Song List_____________________________________________
    
    
    The songs are grouped by series title (ie. Beatmania, DDR, etc), and 
    then by disc, and are in the order that they appear in Free mode when 
    they are all opened up, which also puts them in order of difficulty. As 
    for the categories, Song Title, Artist, and Genre kind of speak for 
    themselves. Diff. is the difficulty, shown in the game as stars, and 
    ranges from one (* or 1) to nine (********* or 9), or ??? (which is how 
    it is listed in the game). After that comes BPM, or beats per minute. If 
    multiple BPMs are shown in the list(example: 100/94/96), then the song 
    starts at 100 BPM, then changes to 94 BPM, and finally changes to 96 
    BPM. Notes are the number of notes contained in the song (example: 
    80/99) - the first number (in this case 80) is the number of notes in 
    one player mode, the second number (99) is the number in two player 
    mode. If there is a dash (ex:79/-) then the song is only available in 1P 
    or 2P mode, and is marked as such after the genre. If there is only one 
    number, the number of notes is the same in both 1P and 2P modes... In 
    DDR, the different notes and difficulties are for the different versions 
    (ie. Normal, Another, Maniac, etc.). Also in DDR (and probably GF as 
    well), the number of notes is the a bit deceiving - two steps (or neck 
    presses) that occur at the same time count as a single note, as you 
    cannot get one of the steps or presses right and the other wrong - if 
    you miss one, the entire 'note' is counted as wrong.  In all of the 
    titles, if there is a difficulty of ???, then that is how it appears in 
    the game - a difficulty that is unknown by me is simply left blank.

    [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 '????'.]

    [note: The songs are in the order that they appear in Free Mode (which 
    is the same as in the separate stages) - press down so that they flow in 
    the right order. Past that, if you're trying to match songs and names 
    and know _no_ Japanese, your best bet here is to match up difficulties 
    and use the course translations above...]
    
    [note2: I hope you guys appreciate this, as many of the songs/artists 
    have kanji in their names, and I have the kanji-reading ability of a 
    Norwiegian cat, which meant that I spent a few hours looking all (but 
    one) of these kanji up. OK, maybe I'm not _that_ bad (as a Norwiegian 
    cat, that is), but still... ;) Anyway, some of the kanji readings may be 
    off, due to my lack of knowledge... Finally, any katakana that I can't 
    figure out the Romanization for, or names that are in katakana, will be 
    in all caps.]

    [note: Medley, one of the two hidden songs, is actually clips from all 
    eleven of the other songs (hence the name and genre). There are two 
    different sections from each song, each a few seconds long, that will 
    play randomly. 16 segments will play total, and sometimes the same 
    segment will repeat - it's totally random. It's also not judged - after 
    the 16th segment, it returns to the Free mode selection (it's only 
    available in free mode).]

    also, I totally ignored the old songs (blue stars) and only wrote down 
    the new ones (red stars). hopefully this list should be more complete 
    soon...]

    note: this is merely a compilation of the songs from the first three 
    mixes, so it would make sense that all of the songs below should be in 
    it - this may not be totally correct, but if anything, there will be 
    extra songs in the below list - please don't try to kill yourself 
    opening them up, as they may not exist... any confirmation on this would 
    be helpful...

    0.04: BEMANI Releases_______________________________________
    
    
    The BEMANI series' history actually started with a little rapping, thin 
    as paper puppy named Parappa. When Sony released the Playstation game 
    'Parappa the Rapper' in 1997, the world (or at least Japan...) took 
    notice of the creation of a new game genre. Enix one-upped Sony with 
    their release of Bust A Move Dance and Rhythm Action (aka. Bust A 
    Groove). Konami saw this and thought - 'How about _we_ make a dancing 
    game...' And they did. It was called 'Dance!Dance!Dance!', and it is 
    most truly horrible. So, they moved to the arcades and released a 12-
    song DJ Mixing game called Beatmania. And unlike D!D!D!, Beatmania was 
    _good_. Good enough that before long, they graced it with a 2nd Mix 
    version. And the BEMANI line was born (the name coming from the first in 
    the series, BEatMANIa). Following Beatmania in the arcades were 
    Pop'n'Music, another 'hit the buttons to make music' game with a 
    cartoonish feel, Dance Dance Revolution, a dancing game that actually 
    requires you to dance, Guitar Freaks, the game that requires you to push 
    buttons and strum a guitar, and lastly Drummania, where you play actual 
    Yamaha electric drums to the beat of the music. And of course, the 
    BEMANI wave has hit homes as well, with Playstation versions of 
    Pop'n'Music, Dance Dance Revolution, and Guitar Freaks, as well as a 
    Dreamcast version of Pop'n. Add to this the merchandising, including 
    handheld LCD games, t-shirts, and soundtrack & remix CDs, and you've got 
    an immensely popular series of games.
    
    The BEMANI arcade and home lines at a glance:
    
     
                ________________________________________________
    _____Arcade:
    
    Note: all of the BEMANI series games are JAMMA standard, and thus will 
    work in an JAMMA cabinet. However, keep in mind that the controls of all 
    of the games series are unique to that series, and thus you can't 
    install a Beatmania board into a Street Fighter II cabinet and expect to 
    be able to play it. Generally, none of the BEMANI series can be 
    conversions, only dedicated. (You can, from what I've understood, swap 
    boards within a series - a Beatmania Complete Mix board will work in a 
    Beatmania 3rd Mix cabinet, and so on)
    
    Price notes: All of the BEMANI games have a suggested price of JY200 per 
    play.
    
    Rarity: means how common it is to find this release in an arcade. Ranges 
    from Common+ (extremely common) to Extremely Rare. Note that the flow is 
    C+, C, C-, U-, U, U+, R-, R, R+, ER. This marking will show up 
    throughout the rest of the document, and does not cover games outside of 
    their region (for example, Beatmania for PSX is Common+ in Japan, but 
    would probably rate a Rare- in the US)
    
    BdRarity: this is how common the board, or the guts of the machine, is. 
    For example, Beatmania 2nd Mix was very popular in it's day, and thus 
    should have a lot of boards out there - however, actually finding the 
    game in the arcades is tough, as the board has more than likely been 
    replaced by a newer, more popular mix (buying a new board is much 
    cheaper than buying a new machine - it would be the equivilant of buying 
    a new Playstation every time you wanted to play a new game, but having 
    the PSX's cost be over $30,000).
    
    Area (territory) notes: All of the releases are understood to be for 
    Japan only. If a release is not intended for the Japanese market, it is 
    noted under 'Area:'.
    
    Label: This is a category for the Beatmania series only - it is what 
    color the label on the turntable is... If the color is unknown, the 
    category won't be there at all...

    Notes:   This is the North and South American version of Beatmania 
             Complete Mix (1st, 2nd, and 3rd Mixes). To my knowledge, the 
             only differences are the title graphic and the translation of 
             any Japanese text - the songs are the same. This is also known   
             to show up in Europe occasionally under this name, as is 
             Beatmania Complete Mix.

    Notes:   This is another territory specific version of Beatmania 
             Complete Mix (1st, 2nd, and 3rd Mixes). To my knowledge, the 
             only differences are the title graphic and the translation of 
             any Japanese text - the songs are the same. I know that it 
             exists under this name, but I'm unsure of the territory. Asia, 
             perhaps?

    Title:   Beatmania 5th Mix Time to Get Down
    Format:  Two-player arcade, dedicated cabinet
    Release: mid9/99
    Rarity:  Common-
    Label:   Yellow
    Tagline: 'Love The Beat!'
    Controls:Two sets of five action buttons and a turntable, 1P & 2P start
             buttons, effects button
    Notes:   The latest installment of Beatmania is the first to feature 
             known (aka. real) artists. Taking a nod from the DDR series, 
             this mix features many songs from the Dancemania series, as 
             well as some 4th Mix classics, as well as (at least) two songs 
             by non-Japanese artists! Much to my delight, 5th Mix features 
             one song each by Mix Master Mike (of Beastie Boy fame, with 
             the song "All-Star" [HipHop]) and Dimitri from Paris (with a 
             Mondo House tune). The 4th Mix stylings are back in full, 
             although the song selection interface has changed so that the 
             song titles are all shown in a box to the right of the screen, 
             along with difficulty (difficulties are shown as numbers in 
             colored stars - red stars are new songs and blue stars are old 
             songs, if memory serves). Even the clubs that you play at 
             (shown on the difficuly select screen) are the same. Now let's 
             just hope that the Western-artist trend continues in later 
             Mixes (Konami - hint: license the song "Cello" by Here. - it's 
             perfectly suited for Beatmania)
    
    
    Title:   Pop'n Stage
    Format:  Two-player arcade, dedicated cabinet
    Release: 10/99
    Rarity:  Uncommon-
    Controls:Two sets of five pressure sensitive foot-pads, song selection 
             buttons, start buttons.
    Notes:   Yes, Pop'n Music and DDR have had a bastard child, and it's 
             name is Pop'n Stage. This new title is basically a cross 
             between DDR and PnM, hands down. Instead of the plus shaped 
             pads of DDR, you get two sets of five pads in the shape of an 
             X for PnS (this layout is somewhat decieving, as a one-player 
             game, or six-button mode, uses half of each X - the player 
             stands in the middle of the Xs... Of course, the other version 
             is 10-button mode, and can be seen as either a sort of DDR 
             double mode or a two player mode). And of course, the same PnM 
             design is used throughout the 
             game. Sure to be a big hit for fans of PnM...

    Notes:   A cross between DDR and DAM (a form of karaoke), this 
             'arcade' release is actually more akin to the PSX version of 
             DDR in look. Definately geared more towards karaoke bars than 
             arcades, it's a fairly lightweight-looking unit that has a 
             screen that displays both the dance steps as well as the 
             lyrics to the song. That's right, dance and sing at the same 
             time... Oh my...

             off by simply brushing your fingers over it. Of course, if you 
             want to have the arcade feel of PnM, there's not many other 
             options... Also, this controller is compatible with a mini-
             game in the upcoming epic Shenmue Chapter 1: Yokosuka.

    Songs:   16
    Notes:   This game was announced at the same press conference that the  
             Playstation2 was announced at. An arcade-perfect port, it also   
             supports up to 2 Guitar Freaks controllers for Session play, 
             so that one person can play the drum part and the other(s) the    
             guitar part (this is do-able in the arcades, too, as long as 
             the GF and DM machines are linked...). Includes the Drummania 
             controller in a special package.
    
    
    Title:   Drummania Controller
    System:  Playstation2
    SRP:     open price: included with Drummania
    Release: 4mar2000
    Rarity:  --
    Notes:   This controller comes in two main pieces, and from the 
             pictures looks absolutely massive. First, you have the main 
             five pad (3-drum, 2-cymbol) body, which also sports the Start 
             and Select buttons, and the foot (bass) pedal is connected by 
             a basic AV cord (which is removable). The color scheme is red 
             and black, and the controller is pretty nice looking. The pads  
             are rubber (a good thing), and the foot pedal is a foam pad 
             with a DDR-type sensor on it. Drumsticks are included as well.
             No word on original PSX compatability, although the PSX and 
             PS2 do use the same kind of ports (for example, the PS2's 
             DualShock2 is perfectly compatible with the PSX), so it is 
             possible. Not that you'd have anything to play on it if it was 
             compatible...
    
    
    Title:   Beatmania: European Edit
    System:  PSX
    SRP:     ??
    Release: 02/2000
    Rarity:  --
    Area:    Europe
    Notes:   Not much is known about this release currently, other than the 
             fact that the in-game graphics are different from 1st, 2nd, 
             and 3rd Mixes (possibly 4th Mix graphics?), and that the disc 
             is rumoured to contain some popular European songs, including 
             music by The Orbital, Fatboy Slim, and Moloko. It also 
             contains some aspects of gameplay that were unfamiliar to h0l, 
             who provided me with this information - again, possibly a 
             modified 4th, which contains additional gameplay versions? 
             More on this as it become available.

    _____Beatmania/Hiphopmania Hidden Modes:
    
    While this isn't really a hidden mode, it goes overlooked a lot of 
    times: By pressing the Select button in any of the PSX Beatmania titles, 
    you'll activate the Effects Button, which will turn on the effect that 
    you've selected from the options menu. This really enhances the sound of 
    some of the songs...
    
    Although I haven't done a lot of looking around for codes yet, I found 
    these on gamewinners.com and thought that they were worth including. I 
    haven't had a chance to try them out, so I can't confirm that they work, 
    or give you any help with them... Anyway, here they are, copied and 
    pasted directly from gamewinners.com - knock yourself out...
    
    Hidden Mode 1:
     Hold L + R (the two back keys on the Beat Mania controller) and press 
    Start when the menu with the "Press Start Button" selection appears. 
    Release those buttons and press Left + X (the two white keys on the left 
    and right side). A sound will confirm correct code entry. The "Hidden 
    Mode 1" option will now be available. 
    
    Double play mode:
     Hold Left + Square + X (the three white keys) and press Start when the 
    menu with the "Press Start Button" selection appears. Release those 
    buttons and press L + R (the two black keys). A sound will confirm 
    correct code entry. An option for double play mode will now be 
    available. 
    
     - from gamewinners.com
    
    
    __Hiphopmania Arcade:
    
    Karen Mceniry has found a code for the U.S. arcade version of Beatmania, 
    Hiphopmania (I'm assuming this is for Complete Mix, but it was not 
    specified):
    
    Put in the required coins/tokens/moneycard. Do not press start yet. 
    Refer to the below diagram for the button presses.
    
      2 4   <:black buttons:>   7 9
     1 3 5  <:white buttons:>  6 8 10   
    
    Hold down 1 and 4 and spin the turntable around once clockwise. Let go
    of the buttons. Then hold down 2 and 5 and spin the turntable clockwise
    again. Let go of the buttons. Next, hold down 1 and 4 again and press 
    the 1p or 2p Start button. Right after you press Start, let go of the 
    buttons quickly and hold down the 2 key until it gets to the difficulty 
    section (easy/hard/practice/etc), then go to hard mode, and you should 
    have all the levels, including the hidden ones. Doing this on 2p mode 
    will also turn on battle mode.
    
    
    
    __4th Mix Arcade:
    
    This is directly from the Konami Homepage. It may work with the PSX 
    version, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet...
    
    Complete Song List Choice Mode (including Hidden Songs)
    
    All songs can be selected from the beginning in BASIC and HARD modes.
    
      1.Insert coin(s). 
      2.Press 6-10-9-8-9-8-9-6-7-6-6-10-9-8-9-8-9-6-7-6-6 on the 2P keyboard 
    (The notes from "Deep In You"). 
      3.Press start while holding down EFFECT and buttons 2 and 4 on the 1P 
    keyboard. 
    
    Button guide for the above:
    
          7   9
                     Turntable
        6   8  10
    
    
    Changing the Frame Colour
    
    During MODE SELECT, pressing the START button will change the screens 
    frame colour with each press. 
    
    Each press will change the frame to the following colours: Grey >> Gold 
    >> Red >> Blue >> Green >> White >> Brown >> Scarlet >> Black >> Magenta 
    . In addition there is also purple followed by grey again and then back 
    through the order.

    _____DDR Hidden Modes/Characters:
    
    
    __Modes:
    
    To access the harder modes in DDR, at the game mode selection screen 
    (easy, normal, hard) press U. This should take you into the 'Secret 
    Mode' screen. Now enter the following button presses/dance steps:
    
    Another: U, U, D, D, U, U, D, D 
    Maniac:  L, L, R, R, L, L, R, R 
    Double:  U, U, D, D, L, R, L, R 
    Mirror:  L, R, L, R, L, R, L, R
    
    U=up, D=down, L=left, R=right, all on the control pad (directional pad, 
    D-pad, etc.)
    
    This will open up the above modes, as well as combinations thereof. The 
    modes will also be saved to your memory card.
    
    (taken from Dance Dance Revolution Konami Official Guide; clarified, 
    confirmed, etc. at GameSages.com)
    
    There is also a hidden edit mode that is unlocked by clearing 500 songs 
    (similar to how the five hidden songs are unlocked). Thanks to Petee Hsu 
    for this as well.
    
    
    __Characters:
    
    At the mode select screen, right after you press start on the title 
    screen, hold either left or right on the control pad - each direction 
    will get you a different set of characters. Thanks to Mike Corbett for 
    the tip.
    
                                                   ______________
    _____Beatmania Append 4th Mix Internet Ranking:
    
    If you get a decently high score (I'm not sure exactly what you have to 
    get) in any of the seven expert courses, you'll recieve a password so 
    that you can enter your score on the Konami website. Here's how it 
    works:
    
     - After playing Expert Mode (and scoring well enough) and entering your 
    DJ name, you'll recieve a password in the following format:
    
    DJ Name (1P):
    DJ Name (2P): [if applicable]
    Password:
     
    (The DJ names are the four letter names that you enter at the high score 
    board.)
    
    You'll also get a web URL: http://www.konami.co.jp/kcej/
    
    Log online using your choice of computer and web browser, and either 
    enter the above URL, or the below one to get you directly to the 
    Internet Ranking section.
    
    http://www.konami.co.jp/kcej/4th_ir/password.html
    
    After that, you'll find an entry screen with about a dozen different 
    choices - here is a rough translation of the page:
    
    -----
    DJ Name (1P)
    DJ Name (2P)
    Password
    
    Name
    
    Email
    
    Comments
    
    Gender      ()Male    ()Female
    Age?    ()under 10  ()10-19  ()20-29  ()30-39  ()over 40
    Last Name?
    
    ??
    Append 4th Mix Favorite Song (select from pulldown menu)
    
    
      [RESET]   [SUBMIT]
    
    -----
    
    After you're done, submit, and look at the scores! A note - they are all 
    fairly high. As of the early morning of 14sept99, the top score was well 
    over 1400. 
    
    As another note, it is possible to get a high score password without 
    actually finishing the expert mode course.
    
    Final note: The internet ranking is going to go on for one month - 
    9sept99 - 8oct99.

    _____Beatmania Controller Button Guide:
    
    Within the Beatmania games, the controllers are automatically configured 
    by selecting the 'Original' controller option. But have you ever wanted 
    to use the controller in another game (like Pop'n Music's 5-button mode) 
    but didn't know how to configure the controller? Here's a diagram of how 
    the Beatmania controllers are laid out:
    
        -----   -----     
        |   |   |   |           -----
        |L1 |   | R1|         /   U   \
        |   |   |   |        /         \
        -----   -----       |           |
    -----   -----   -----   |           |
    |   |   |   |   |   |    \         /
    | S |   | X |   | O |     \   D   /
    |   |   |   |   |   |       ----- 
    -----   -----   -----
    
    S=square
    U=up on the directional pad
    D=down on the directional pad
    the others should be self explainatory, and of course Select and Start
       are just what they say they are...
    
     
                                            ____________________
    _____Beatmania 4th/5th Mix Difficulties:
    
    One of the additions in the new 4th/5th Mix interfaces is a better 
    difficulty rating system. Much more like DDR, 4th and 5th have 7 
    difficulties, and each one has it's own title. Originally, there was a 
    5-star ratings system (although some songs did have 6 stars) and there 
    were only three titles for the six levels... While not as creative as 
    DDR's titles, it is a nice change...
    
    * very easy
    ** easy
    *** normal
    **** hard
    ***** very hard
    ****** strong hard
    ******* ultimate hard
    
    
                          ______________________________________
    _____DDR Difficulties:
    
    DDR has names for all eight of it's difficulties (unlike Beatmania 1st, 
    2nd, and 3rd, which only has three names for it's six). Here's a chart 
    listing all eight (note: obviously, the *s are the number of feet in the 
    difficulty, and the more feet, the harder):
    
    * simple
    ** moderate
    *** ordinary
    **** superior
    ***** marvelous
    ****** genuine
    ******* paramount 
    ******** exorbitant
    
                                             ___________________
    _____Beatmania GB2; English Translations:
    
    As you may have noted, many of the songs in Beatmanis GB2: Gacchamix are 
    in Japanese. This is merely a translation of the song's titles into 
    English, with the best of my ability (which isn't that great, I'll warn 
    you right now, so some of these may be pretty off...) English is the 
    song's English translation, while In Game is how it appears in game (a 
    few of the songs are already in English) - again, katakana is in all 
    caps. The Gottamix Course is not listed as all of the songs are already 
    in English. If you're looking for translations of the menu screens, 
    please see the Gacchamix section of the Quick Guide section of this FAQ.

    _____BEMANI outside of Japan:
    
    While the BEMANI series started, and is the most popular, in Japan, it 
    has recently started to spread to other regions:
    
    Europe: Recieving the second most BEMANI games of a single region (Japan 
    being first, obviously), Europe has recieved both Beatmania (as either 
    Beatmania or Hiphopmania, the former probably being a Japanese import) 
    and DDR (as either DDR or Dancing Stage) in the arcades. A Playstation 
    version of Beatmania, entitled 'Beatmania European Edit', is due by the 
    end of the year. No DDR PSX game has been announced as of yet.
    
    Americas: North and South America have recieved Beatmania in the arcades 
    under the somewhat decieving (and in my opinion, just plain bad) name 
    'Hiphopmania'. Dance Dance Revolution is also available in the arcades. 
    No home releases have been announced yet.
    
    Asia: Asia has also recieved a few BEMANI games, although details here 
    are sketchy - in some areas, Japanese imports abound, but as for 
    official territory releases, I believe that both Beatmania and DDR have 
    hit, the former possibly as BeatStage.
    
    
                         ______________________________________
    _____Facts & Figures:
    
    
    This section is simply a collection of misc. facts and figures on the 
    BEMANI series...
    
     - Beatmania currently leads the BEMANI series for number of variations 
    (arcade, home, portable, and LCD) at 19, while DDR is at 9 (going on 
    15), Pop'nX has 8, Guitar Freaks has 3, and finally Drummaina exists 
    only in a single format.
     - Both the original Beatmania and Dance Dance Revolution Playstation 
    games have sold over a million copies.
     - The single most prolific song in the entire BEMANI series is 
    20.november, which is in at least 10 different games, and has at least 5 
    different mixes/versions.
     - The fastest song in the home versions of Beatmania was previously 
    Hell Scraper (gabbah) by l.e.d. light-g, from GottaMix/5th Mix, which 
    maxes at 200 BPM, although it has been overtaken by Krymson (digital 
    hardcore) by RAM, from 5th Mix, which blows by at an amazing 240 BPM. 
    Neither of these matches the Drummania song Across the Nightmare, which 
    is apparently 300 BMP (although I don't think it is truly 300 BMP). As a 
    total side note, the fastest song ever recorded was Thousand by Moby: it 
    maxes at 1000 BMP.
     - The slowest song in Beatmania is It's Your Funky Life (reggae) from 
    Beatmania GB, which blows away the competition with a lethargic 60 BMP.
     - The song with the most notes in Beatmania (1P) is Hell Scraper, with 
    a whopping 577 notes, over 100 more than the number two song, which is 
    BEMANI Hit Tracks (nonstop megamix) by the K.M.D.J.team from Gottmix, 
    which contains 468 notes. A close third place is Logical Dash [another] 
    (happy), by DJ Taka, from 4th Mix, and contains 467 notes.
     - The song with the least number of notes in Beatmania is DJ Battle, 
    from Beatmania Pocket 2, with a wimpy 27 notes.
     - The largest BMP change occurs in Lovegirl in Summer ~Guhroovy 
    Hardcore Mix~ (breakbeats) by Luv2Shy, which begins at 95 BMP and 
    doubles to 190 BMP about halfway through.
     - The song with the longest complete title is "Lovegirl in Summer 
    ~Guhroovy Hardcore Mix~ (breakbeats) by Luv2Shy featuring Sonomi" with 
    69 characters (not counting spaces, the 'by', or the (), but counting 
    the ~s, which are part of the song's title)
     - Hell Scraper (gabbah) contains a total of 666 notes in 2P mode (I 
    really shouldn't have to explain this one...).
     - Inventive Japanese Beataddicts have invented numerous new ways to 
    play, including '2P Cross' (where one player mans the 1P keys and the 2P 
    'table, and the other player is on the inside of him manning the 2P keys 
    and the 1P 'table), 'One Finger' (playing using only one finger), 'Back 
    Play' (playing with your back to the screen), and the famous 'Double 
    Play' (one person plays a 2P game, manning both sets of keys and both 
    turntables).
     - The initial release of Beatmania only had 9 unique songs (ie. songs 
    with different titles, not counting additional mixes), while the later 
    releases have gotten up to 39 for home releases (Append 4th Mix) and 
    over 60 in the arcades (IIDX Substream Club Version 2)
     - The BEMANI series is less than two years old, yet already has 50 
    separate games in it (21 different arcade games, 12 home releases, 6 LCD 
    games, and at least 11 more on the way). This easily makes it the most 
    prolific set series in video game history (with the MegaMan/Rockman 
    series coming in second with over 20 titles, but spread over a 10 year 
    period). Even Beatmania's 19 current titles over 2 years rivals 
    (although does not surpass) MegaMan's 10 year stint... (please note that 
    I'm referring to BEMANI as a 'set series', as opposed to an assumed one 
    - an example of the latter would be grouping all of Mario's appearances 
    into a single series, which still probably wouldn't beat the BEMANI 
    series... also, I'm counting arcade and home releases separately, as 
    they should - this may put MegaMan over 30, and possibly 40... but then, 
    I'm not the MegaMan expert, now am I?)
     - Traditionally, the BEMANI series has been presented entirely in 
    English (with the exception of the 'how-to-play' sections), with the 
    first Japanese song title occurring in Pop'n Music, and the second one 
    not occurring until Beatmania Pocket Summer Mix.

    _____Boot Problems:
    
    
    Something that has come to my attention recently is the matter of people 
    having trouble getting certain games to boot, for various reasons. 
    Here's a quick rundown on how to go about solving these problems (note 
    that all of the BEMANI releases so far are Japanese territory, so if 
    you're using a console meant for either Europe or North America, you 
    need a mod chip or other similar device - this FAQ assumes that you know 
    that, and will not go into any detail whatsoever on the topic - there 
    are plenty of other resources on the web for such difficulties):
    
    --Obviously, only use this section if you can't get your game to boot - 
    some people have said that they have a chipped PSX, and that certain 
    games will boot fine that are supposedly anti-mod...--
    
    
    __Beatmania Append 4th Mix:
    
    Many people have reported problems getting 4th Mix to boot up in 
    anything but the Bonus Edit Mode. In all of the cases that I've recieved 
    email about, this is due to the fact that the readers are booting from 
    Arcade -> 3rd Mix -> 4th Mix. Upon looking in the instruction book, 
    you'll see that one of the first pages has a diagram saying that if you 
    boot from Arcade -> 3rd/Gotta -> 4th, you will in fact recieve the Bonus 
    Edit Mode, and that in order to recieve the regular 4th Mix, you must 
    boot Arcade -> 4th or Arcade -> 3rdMini/Yebisu -> 4th.  
    
    I suspect that most of the people having these problems, and thus 
    booting in this manner, is that 3rd Mix is not mod-protected (ie. 
    unbootable on systems modified for all-region play), and thus the only 
    way to boot the 4th Mix disc on a modded system is to do it in the 
    manner that they are doing (for some reason 3rd -> 4th bypasses the mod-
    check, while Arcade -> 4th obviously does not).
    
    In the end, you have a few options if you are encountering this problem. 
    The first is to buy a Japanese Playstation, which is really recommended 
    - I own a Japanese and an American one, and for import-heavy gamers, 
    this is by far the best choice due to the massive amount of mod-
    protecting games. On the other hand, I realise that an imported ~US$200 
    PSX system isn't within everyone's means, so the second, and less 
    recommended, method is detailed below (under Mod-Protected 
    Games/GameShark methods:). It involves the use of a GameShark or similar 
    'cheat' device to bypass the mod-check. Other methods exist, such as 
    Game Enhancers, Gold Fingers, and stealth mods, but I know nothing about 
    them other than the names.
    
    
    __Beatmania/Append discs:
    One reader has reported problems getting the Append Yebisu disc to boot 
    on a PSX with an external mod chip. This problem has not yet been 
    solved, and any input would be appreciated. Please note that this may be 
    the fault of the chip, and not the game. 
    
    This problem, however, has brought to my attention that if you are using 
    a method that requires the lid of the PSX to be propped open, you must 
    release whatever you're using to press down the lid sensor when you Disc 
    Switch, or the PSX will not boot the Append Disc.
    
    
    __Mod-Protected Games/GameShark methods: 
    (covers Beatmania Append Gottamix & 4th Mix, Dance Dance Revolution & 
    2ndReMix, Guitar Freaks, Pop'n Music 2, Goo!Goo!Soundy, BishiBashi 
    Special 2(PSX):
    
    All of the above games are 'mod-protected', and require one of two 
    things to be done: Play the game on an un-modified Japanese system 
    (recommended), or buy a Game Shark and input the below codes to boot the 
    game (at your own risk):

    There is one way around the Gottamix and 4th Mix mod-checks - 
      1. Boot the Arcade disc.
      2. Disc Switch to Append 3rd Mix.
      3. Disc Switch to Append GottaMix or 4th Mix (note that in 4th Mix, 
    you will only be able to access the Bonus Edit mode using this method)

                   ____________________________________________
    _____Grey Area:
    
    Something that has come to my attention as of late is a number of 'grey 
    area' matters. Past the obviously illegal things such as the TopMax GF 
    controller and pirated games, the BEMANI world has recently met another 
    world: that of emulation. There are also rumours of fan made Append 
    Discs...
    
    
    __Emulation:
    
    While many people mistake emulation for something that is totally 
    illegal, in truth it is a fairly grey area of the law. This document 
    does not cover the illegal aspects of emulation, but rather brings to 
    light the greyer areas (although none of this is endorsed by the author 
    of this document nor the web sites that this document is found on). 
    
    There exists a Beatmania emulator called 'BM98', which runs on fan-made 
    files called .bms files. The emulator is backwards-engineered and 
    freeware, making it (fairly) legal (to my knowledge). Although it does 
    not contain any Beatmania or BEMANI references, it doesn't take a genius 
    to see that it is clearly Beatmania under a different name. The emulator 
    does not run off of copied ROM images, as most do, but rather fan-made 
    files (.bms format), which reference .wav files for the audio and .bmp 
    files for the video. The BMS files are made with another program called 
    BMS Creator (also freeware), and can be simply made from any .wav files 
    or .bmp files. The emulator itself is customisable, with the GUI being 
    made up of easily alterable .bmp files. While the emulator called 'BM98' 
    is the most popular, there are others as well, including 'TypeMania'...  
    Please note that these programs and files are not illegal in nature 
    (again, to my knowledge), but can be if the program is altered to 
    include copyrighted images/words, and if the samples or video for the 
    BMS files include copyrighted works.
    
    I am also aware of a DDR emulator, although info on this is currently 
    scarce.
    
    Finally, although I hate to add all of this, it seems to be a necessity. 
    As I have stated before, _I do not endorse any of the programs covered 
    in this section_ - period. This means that I will not provide any links 
    to websites covering such topics or containing related files, and I will 
    not provide any of the above files. I am very staunch on this. Also, 
    keep in mind that any Beatmania/DDR/etc. songs that have been modified 
    for play on BM98 are _illegal_, as they contain copyrighted 
    images/sounds that are under the creative control of Konami. I do not 
    know where if such files even exist, and if they do I do not know where 
    to obtain them. Under no circumstances will I endorse the distribution 
    of such files containing the copyrighted intellectual property of 
    Konami. Put in simple English, DO NOT ASK ME FOR BM98 FILES, ESPECIALLY 
    BEMANI SONGS - I WILL _NOT_ SEND THEM TO YOU.
    
    
    __Fan-Made Append Discs:
    
    I have heard a single rumour about this topic. Basically, if it is true, 
    it would fall under the same file as the BMS files in the above section 
    - as long as the discs didn't contain copyrighted 
    files/sounds/images/etc, it would make sense that these would be legal. 
    Again, neither the author nor the websites endorse this.
    
    
    __Closing Words on Grey Areas:
    
    A closing word on the above grey area matters: I, nor the webmasters of 
    the sites that you have found this on, suppport the above matters, and 
    they are presented merely because they are part of the mass that is 
    BEMANI. Please do not email me asking for more information on the above 
    topics; any emails will replied to with this very paragraph in the body 
    of the email, and none of the requested information will be sent with 
    it. If you really want to learn more about these topics, I suggest that 
    you visit one of the web's many search engines, such as Yahoo! 
    [http://www.yahoo.com] or Metacrawler [http://www.metacrawler.com] and 
    search for the above topics. Also, the author and the webmasters will 
    not be responsible for any damage that you may do to your 
    PSX/computer/etc. through using any of the programs/etc. covered in 
    'Grey Area'.

    _____Rumours:
    
    This is a section for news that can't possibly confirmed, but is worth 
    putting up anyway. Our first one is from "h0l":
    
       "I was at ECTS in London a couple of days ago... they had 
        'professional' DDR dancers on the stand and one of the tunes they 
         were dancing to seemed to be Run DMC vs. Jason Nevins - "It's Like 
         That" (big European No.1 quite recently)."
    
    The RunDMC/Nevins tune is definately not in any of the released versions 
    of DDR - a possibility for 3rd Mix? He also mentioned in a later email 
    that it may have just been a DJ spinning over the music of the game, and 
    that the tune isn't actually in the game...
    
       **update: the song has been confirmed to be in the European DDR, 
    called Dancing Stage.**
    
                                         _______________________
    _____Beatmania/BeatMania/Beat Mania?:
    
    A quick note on the actual title of Konami's DJ Simulation game. The 
    logo is written 'beat mania', all in lower case, with a very small, but 
    noticable, space inbetween the 't' and the 'm'. Konami sometimes writes 
    is as one word, all lower case ('beatmania'), and sometimes as two 
    words, with normal caps ('Beat Mania'). I've never seen Konami write it 
    as one word with two caps ('BeatMania'), but I've seen it that way other 
    places. The katakana on the PSX games and the books is written as one 
    word (no spaces inbetween the 'to' and the 'ma'), and for that matter 
    the actual katakana spelling is 'beetomania'. I personally prefer one 
    word, with either a capital or lower-case 'B.' In this FAQ, for 
    clarity's sake, I capitalise the 'B', since it's easier to read. In 
    reality, I'm not sure that there is a definate way to write the name of 
    the game, although the all-lower-case, one-word version gets used an 
    awful lot...
    
    In an update to this section, Beatmania Append 4th Mix has brought new 
    light to this 'arguement' - Beatmania now appears as one word on the 
    cover (as opposed to the small space seen in previous releases). Now I 
    guess it's just a matter of Beatmania vs. BeatMania (although I will 
    still use Beatmania...)
    
    Another point to mention is a variation on this whole subject - 
    Drummania vs. DrumMania. Again, I'll use Drummania in this doc., but 
    just want to bring it to light... (Drummania, though, has never had a 
    space between the two m's...)
    
    
                      __________________________________________
    _____Artist Names:
    
    Some notes about the artist names in the Beatmania series. I'm not sure 
    how many are real artists, and how many are 'invented' artists, made up 
    my the Konami staff. Many of the names do seem to be taken from popular 
    artists. Here are some thoughts on where the artists' names came from 
    (and thanks to Bill for much of the info):
    
    
    Artist:            Source:
    
    __Beatmania:
    dust fathers       The Dust Brothers, a popular producer/remix/artist 
                        team. Of course, there were two artists with this 
                        name at one time - the Chemical Brothers were 
                        originally the Dust Brothers as well, but when 
                        the other Dust Brothers found out in 1996, they 
                        threatened a lawsuit, hence the change in name.

                        piece of studio equipment as well. 
    Cheap Forest       Deep Forest, an "artist" (term used VERY loosely) 
                        who is recognized by the music press as one who 
                        would plunder world music and recycle it into 
                        elevator music drivel mixed with beats.  Notice 
                        that "Cheap Forest" does the "Asian Traditional," 
                        which is traditional Asian music recycled with 
                        beats. 
    ESPACIO BROTHERS   Part Chemical Brothers homage, part homage to 
                        Space (which is espacio in Spanish) the after-
                        hours club of Ibiza. 
    Emotion of Sound   The initials, e.o.s., are probably a reference to 
                         a J-Pop band from the 80s.  Another possibility 
                         is a reference to The Ministry of Sound - a club 
                         that is a landmark of corporate clubbing based 
                         in London. Another possibility is the 80's band 
                         Art of Noise.
    staccato two-J     Probably a nod to Pizzicato Five, a J-Pop group. 
                        Staccato and Pizzicato are both very sharp ways 
                        to play notes in music. The 'J' is for Japanese, 
                        the language the song is in.
    staccato two-F     See staccato two-J, but replace the 'J' for 
                        Japanese with 'F' for French.
    Herbie Hammock     The first half is a nod to the classic jazz 
     & His Band         musician Herbie Hancock (thanks to ". Charon" 
                        for the tip), and the second half could be taken 
                        from any number of groups that ended in "& His 
                        Band"
    DUB-GB             Could be any number of dub (another techno genre, 
                        and the cornerstone of the popular big beat 
                        subgenre) groups, including The Dub Pistols, Dub 
                        Narcotic Sound System, Asian Dub Foundation, etc. 
                        The 'GB' could possibly be a reference to 
                        Nintendo's GameBoy, which also has a version of 
                        Beatmania...
    SLAKE              This could possibly be Fluke, a UK techno act who 
                        has actually already had music in a video game - 
                        the song "Atom Bomb" (instrumental version, I 
                        believe) was in the killer Pysgnosis futuristic 
                        racer Wipeout XL (Wipeout 2097 for our European 
                        friends).
    K.M.D.J.team       Probably 'Konami Music Disc Jockey Team', but that's 
                        just a guess...

                          originally done by Carl Douglas, hence the 
                          'feat. carl douglas' addition.
    jt playaz            Another real band (disco).
    the specials         Again, a real band (ska).
    mantronik vs. epmd   Two real bands this time - EPMD is an old-school 
                          rap group, and Mantronik, a techno artist, 
                          remixed one of their songs...
    hi-rise              Another real band (disco).
    190                  This is taken from the artist listed for the 
                          original mix of Paranoia, 180.
    chumbawumba          A real (and incredibly over-popular) band.
    
    __Pop'n Music:
    LITTLE FINGERS      Sounds familiar, but can't place
    Uncle Jam(character)This is one of the characters that is seen in the 
                         Jam Jam Reggae [reggae] song on the first PSX 
                         Beatmania game. He's also a character from 
                         George Clinton's Parliament/Funkadelic 
                         mythology.   
    act deft            Probably from Daft Punk, a popular French techno 
                         group.
    THE RICHIE SISTERS  Possibly a nod to The Richie Family, a disco group. 
                         Another thought is The Pointer Sisters + Lionel 
                         Richie=The Richie Sisters.
    ORIGINAL            There was a British artist that had a name that 
     SOUND TRACKS        was very similar to this, but I'm not sure of 
                         his name off hand... And of course, there's the 
                         possibility that 'Original Sound Tracks' is just 
                         meant to convey that it's a film 'original 
                         soundtrack', like the 60s Bond movie type thing 
                         that John Barry did.
    JV&THE SEXY         JV is a homage to JB, the man, the legend, 
     MACHINE GUN         James Brown. 'Sexy Machine' is related to Sex 
                         Machine by said legend, James Brown. To boot, 
                         James Brown's backing band was called "The JBs", 
                         further strengthening the ties. Also  "Machine 
                         Gun" is a funk instrumental tune by the Commodores                       
                         (the Beastie Boys sampled it, with the Dust   
                         Brothers' help for "Hey Ladies" from _Paul's 
                         Boutique_.
                         Another possibility, although remote, is a nod 
                         to Sister Machine Gun (both have the same 
                         initials, SMG). However, the genre is pretty far 
                         off, as Sister Machine Gun is an industrial rock 
                         band.    
    Windslope           Windslope is meant to be Kraftwerk, and that whole 
                         robotic pop thing. Some of the names just sorta 
                         work when you know who it is, but otherwise it's 
                         impossible to guess.
    Kraft (Character)   Again, a (much more direct) reference to Kraftwerk.

    It shakes and shivers in fright;
    You always need to call
    Mother, she hates your guts.
    She knows that you love her
    so she holds you tight
    all through the night
    until the broad day light.
    But when she doesn't come home
    you have to sleep alone.
    Then you wet your bed
    and I think that's sad
    for a girl of nineteen.
    It's more than sad;
    it's obscene!
    
    One, two!
    
    And you think it's 'bout time that you died
    and died in peace
    so you decide on suicide.
    You tried but you never quite carried it out.
    You only wanted to die in order to show how
    And if you think it's gonna bleed all over me,
    you're even wronger than you know. Let it be.
    And the only things you wanna see are kitsch*.
    The only thing you wanna be is rich.
    Your little pain; a body knows things that twitch.
    I know you know you're just a little bitch!
    
    One, two...

    Just bring it on down.
    Just bring it on down.
    
    Will you light my fire?
    Your love is my only desire.
    Will you light my fire?
    Cause I need your love.
    
    Bring it on down, I'll take it higher.
    Feel your body burning with desire.
    One step a little closer,
    turn around and take it like you're supposed ta; a roller coasta.
    About this time I'll make a suggestion;
    get on the dance floor but use discretion.
    It's hot, and when I find the spot...
    
    Will you light my fire?
    Your love is my only desire.
    Will you light my fire?
    Cause I need...
    
    Will you light my fire?
    Your love is my only desire.
    Will you light my fire?
    Cause I need your love, ooh.

    __Eyes of Kids
    
    The beauty of a child, innocent, no lies.
    Cries and laughs, emotions from deep inside.
    Look at the children, oh their beautiful eyes.
    
    The children of the world will be this way forever.
    When you hold a child's hand make sure you give your love.

    When you're walking down the street and it's sunny,
    the vibe is right, people grooving.
    When you're feeling all alone and lonely,
    come to where the action is.
    Lot of people walking down the avenue.
    Everybody's looking for something new.
    You know it don't hurt to have a little fun.
    
    Some say that life is like a rainy day.
    They say there's no hope for the youth today.
    Life's how you make it, give yourself some freedom.
    Let's get together and share what's
    there for you and me.

    You're blowing my mind,
    you were hard to find.
    I'm going in circles, 
    I'm turning like a merry go round.
    I think about you.
    
    I wanna take you
    to another world.
    I wanna show you
    that I'm your girl.
    Take your time 
    then give me a sign.
    I try to be the best I can possibly be

    _____Other rhythm games:
    
    The rhythm genre, although led by the BEMANI series, is not by any means 
    confined to it. While not a comprehensive list, here's a brief look at 
    some of the other rhythm games/series, in approxomite order of release: 
    [please note that all of the games are Japanese unless marked]
    
    
    __Quick list of recommended games:
    Parappa the Rapper (PSX)
    Bust A Move Dance and Rhythm Action (aka. Bust A Groove) (PSX/arcade)
    Umjammer Lammy (PSX)
    Bust A Move 2 Dance Tengoku Mix (PSX/arcade)
    Samba de Amigo (arcade)
    
    
    __Longer list of all games:
    Title:   Parappa the Rapper (aka. Parapparappa)
    Company: Sony Computer Entertainment International (SCEI)
    System:  PSX  -US, Japan-
    Type:    Rapping 
    Rarity:  Common (JP), Uncommon+ (US)
    Notes:   The game that started the rhythm genre. The design is very 
    good, albeit stylised, being a cartoony feel with paper-thin characters. 
    The music is catchy, although the lyrics and subject matter can be... 
    odd. While it is the first, it is still one of the best. Recommended.
    
    
    Title:   Bust A Move Dance And Rhythm Action (aka. Bust A Groove)
    Company: Enix (989 Studios in the US)
    System:  PSX -US, Japan-
    Type:    Dancing
    Rarity:  Common (JP), Uncommon (US), Rare (JP Ltd. Edition)
    Notes:   The first dancing game, BAM is styled after a fighting game, 
    where two dancers square off one against another. Very good music, and 
    very good character design. One of the best in the genre. There was also 
    a two-cd limited edition set that shipped to Japan - the second CD is 
    possibly a Windows CD... Anyway, in whatever form, it comes highly 
    recommended.
    
    
    Title:   Stolen Song
    Company: SCEI
    System:  PSX
    Type:    Guitar
    Rarity:  Common
    Notes:   Only uses one action button. Fairly bland.
    
    
    Title:   Dance!Dance!Dance!
    Company: Konami
    System:  PSX
    Type:    Dancing
    Rarity:  Common
    Notes:   Obviously inspired by BAM, D!D!D! is a poor attempt at a rhythm 
    game. The dance system is incredibly bad, and the characters and songs 
    are very uninspired. The only saving grace is the ability to put in your 
    own music CDs and dance to them (or at least try to dance to them...).
    
    
    Title:   Great Hits
    Company: Enix
    System:  PSX
    Type:    ?
    Rarity:  Common
    Notes:   I've only seen, and not played this game. I'm not even sure of 
    the name. It appears in closeout bins quite a bit, so I've skipped it, 
    and from all the feedback that I've heard, I've made the right choice.
    
    
    Title:   Bust A Move 2 Dance Tengoku Mix
    Company: Enix
    System:  PSX
    Type:    Dancing
    Rarity:  Common
    Notes:   Although not as good as the original, BAM2 refines the dancing 
    system to near perfection. The big downfall is the songs, which have 
    lost a bit of their edge from the first release. Again, good character 
    design and a nice club feel to the graphics. Recommended.
    
    
    Title:   Umjammer Lammy
    Company: SCEI -NA, Europe, Japan-
    System:  PSX
    Type:    Guitar (in the style of Parappa)
    Rarity:  Common (US), Uncommon (US)
    Notes:   The pseudo-sequel to Parappa, Lammy adds much more variety to 
    the mix, including 2 player (cooperative and versus), and versions of 
    the songs that Lammy is joined by Parappa. Containing some of the same 
    characters as Parappa and having the same graphical style, fans of 
    Parappa will definately dig this one. And if you thought that some of 
    Parappa's songs had odd topics... check out the storyline on this one. 
    Sadly, the most bizzarre level in the game, Hell (the next-to-the-last 
    stage), was changed in the US and European version (for obvious content 
    reasons, and to avoid the 'M' rating that might have come with it...). 
    Instead, Lammy plays (the same song) on a desert island. Does this meant 
    ath Hell is really a tropical island? Hmmm... makes to think... Anyway, 
    whether you're playing in Hell or a Desert Island, the game is 
    Recommended.
    
    
    Title:   Bust A Move Dance and Rhythm Action
    Company: Atlus
    System:  Arcade
    Type:    Dancing
    Rarity:  Uncommon
    Notes:   The same as the Playstation version, BAM Arcade features a foot 
    pad that you press instead of the down button, making what was once 
    simple a tad bit harder. The attack/dodge button has been reduced to a 
    single button (?) that I've never gotten to work. Maybe if I could read 
    the instructions...
    
    
    Title:   Stepping Stage Series
    Company: Jaleco
    System:  Arcade
    Type:    Dancing
    Rarity:  Uncommon+
    Notes:   I've only just seen, and not played, this one. Similar to DDR, 
    Stepping Stage uses 6  pads of 3 different colors. I've not even listed 
    to the music, so I can't comment much...
    
    
    Title:   Perfect Performers - The Yellow Monkey
    Company: ?
    System:  PSX
    Type:    ?
    Rarity:  Uncommon
    Notes:   I've only seen ads for it, but it would appear to be a rhythm 
    game in the style of Stolen Song, featuring music by The Yellow Monkey, 
    a Japanese hair rock group. I'm going to skip it, personally....
    
    
    Title:   PacaPacaPassion
    Company: ?
    System:  PSX
    Type:    ?
    Rarity:  Uncommon
    Notes:   I've only seen, and not played this game. Any info would be 
    helpful.
    
    
    Title:   VJ
    Company: Jaleco
    System:  Arcade
    Type:    Rave?
    Rarity:  Rare-
    Notes:   One of the reasons that Konami and Jaleco don't like each 
    other... (Konami sued over the similarity to their own titles - more on 
    this whole fiasco coming in it's own section in a later release) 
    
    
    Title:   Goo!Goo! Soundy
    Company: Konami
    System:  PSX
    Type:    Multi?/Breeding?
    Rarity:  Common-
    Notes:   I haven't heard much about this one, other than the fact that 
    it's apparently a breeding sim crossed with a rhythm game that you can 
    you the PSX BEMANI controllers with - any and all of them... hmmm... I'm 
    curious, to say the least... 
    
    
    Title:   Rock'n Tread Series
    Company: Namco
    System:  Arcade
    Type:    Multi
    Rarity:  Uncommon-
    Notes:   Why?
    
    
    Title:   Bust A Move 2 Dance Tengoku Mix
    Company: Atlus, Enix
    System:  Arcade
    Type:    Dancing
    Rarity:  Uncommon
    Notes:   See the BaM 1 arcade version for notes...
    
    
    Title:   Guitar Jam
    Company: Namco
    System:  Arcade
    Type:    Guitar
    Rarity:  Uncommon+
    Notes:   A Guitar Freaks rip-off, but with a full pressure-sensitive 
    guitar neck instead of three buttons.
    
    
    Title:   Vib Ribbon
    Company: SCEI
    System:  PSX
    Type:    Unknown
    Rarity:  Common-
    Notes:   An odd yet good one, Vib Ribbon features black and white line 
    graphics (no polygons in sight). As a stick-figure walks over certain 
    scribbles, you have to press the button that corresponds to the 
    scribble. If there was ever a stylised game, this is most definately it. 
    Released Dec. 9 '99.
    
    
    Title:   Space Channel 5
    Company: Sega
    System:  Dreamcast
    Type:    Dancing
    Rarity:  --
    Notes:   This one just plain scares me. From what I understand, it's 
    similar to Bust-A-Move, but you're a reporter trying to get info from 
    aliens on a spaceship? What, do you dance the facts out of them? (which 
    wouldn't surprise me, as this is from the company that crossed a zombie 
    shooting game with a typing tutor for the upcoming game The Typing of 
    the Dead). Anyway, it plays a bit like Simon Says or Memory, where you 
    have to mimic the moves that are shown to you... Release date is 
    16dec99.
    
    
    Title:   Puyo Puyo DA! -featuring ELLENA system-
    Company: 
    System:  Dreamcast
    Type:    Dancing
    Rarity:  --
    Notes:   A dancing game featuring the Puyo Puyo characters. Decent 
    looking.
    
    
    Title:   Samba de Amigo
    Company: Sega
    System:  Arcade, possibly Dreamcast
    Type:    Maracca
    Rarity:  --
    Notes:   Developed by Sonic Team (the team responsible for the Sonic the 
    Hedgehog games [obviously], as well as NiGHTS), this one is definately 
    odd looking, but is quite a blast to play... You have to shake the 
    maraccas to the beat, and in certain places... Also, it's rumored that 
    this game will eventually be ported to the Dreamcast, and will have a 
    Maracca Controller released as well (this is almost a definate, as it 
    runs on the Naomi board, which is the Dreamcast Arcade board - porting 
    it would be simple). 
    
    
    Title:   UmJammer Lammy
    Company: Namco, SCEI
    System:  Arcade
    Type:    Guitar
    Rarity:  --
    Notes:   A conversion of the PSX game using a guitar controller 
    interface instead of a normal button interface. The guitar features four 
    buttons similar to the single guitar freaks one, where you 'strum' to 
    press the button; each button bears one of the PSX symbols (X, O, ^, 
    []), so gameplay is unaltered. There is also a start button and a 'wail' 
    slider.
    
    
    Title:   Beat Planet Music
    Company: SCEI
    System:  PSX
    Type:    Shooting/Music
    Rarity:  --
    Notes:   A cross between the Square art-shooter 'iS: internal section' 
    and a music game. Heavily stylised, BPM allows you to create your own 
    songs by picking up notes as you fly down a twisting corridor. Due for a 
    Feb. 2000 release.
      
    
    Title:   Audition
    Company: Jaleco?
    System:  Unknown
    Type:    Singing?
    Rarity:  --
    Notes:   Not much is known about this title so far...
          --not yet released--
    
     
    Title:   UniSon
    Company: Jaleco?
    System:  PS2
    Type:    Singing/Dancing
    Rarity:  --
    Notes:
          --not yet released--
    
    
    Title:   Bust A Move 3
    Company: Enix
    System:  PS2
    Type:    Dancing
    Rarity:  --
    Notes:   No concrete info on this yet, except for the fact that it is 
    coming.
         --not yet released--
    
    
    Title:   ?
    Company: Square
    System:  PSX?, PS2?
    Type:    ?
    Rarity:  --
    Notes:   Nothing is known yet about this game, other than the fact that 
    Square (makers of Final Fantasy and other excellent RPGs) are making 
    some sort of rhythm game. The platform will probably be one of the 
    Playstation systems, but like I said, nothing is really known yet 
    (including a release date...). More is likely to be announced at their 
    Millenium Conference, to be held in January 2000.

      section in the Outro... added a bit about the Select Button in 
      Beatmania to the Beatmania Hidden Modes section of Misc... added the 
      rest of the Beatmania Music CDs... added all of the Beatmania 
      merchandise... fixed and added the correct release dates for all of 
      the Beatmania home and arcade games... added a Facts & Figures 
      section to Misc.... added more on DDR3rd... added (incomplete) 
      songlists for Pop'n Music 2 (DC&PSX) and Beatmania 5th Mix   
      (arcade)... added some codes for Beatmania 4th Arcade...
    
    ver.0.96/031099: it's understood that I see this as pre-release until 
    v.1.00, so this is the last that I'll mention it.
      added more info on Beatmania around the world, and about the European 
      edit. also added some about the DC PnM controller. (great thanks to 
      h0l, who has been incredibly helpful). added modes for DS:TKD for 
      PSX. added two more artists (both real) to the artists list. added 
      the release date for DDRAppendTKD. added the BM GB password ALTERNA, 
      which opened another song unknown to me (e.n.k.), so that was added 
      to the songlist... added the possibility of Samba de Amigo on the DC. 
      added difficulty listing for Beatmania 4th and 5th Mixes. Added the 
      fact that Fatboy Slim and Moloko will be in the BM:European Edit 
      (from the OPM, UK).
    
    ver.0.95.5a/0110999: still technically pre-release, but at this point, 
    who really cares except for me? 
      added 5th Mix arcade info. added info on boot problems (including 
      Game Shark-type unlock codes). added info on the Drummania 
      controller. added more on misc. to-be-released games. added a bit in 
      the Beatmania/Beat Mania? section. added minimal info on Anison Mix 
      2, DDR3rd, Rap Freaks, DSfeatDCT. added more to the legal section due 
      to the includion Game Shark-type codes. did some corrections on the 
      GF song list. corrected the TOC error for the GF songlist. added more 
      PnM info, including DC. added DJ Man info. added minimal info on the 
      3rd-party DDR controllers. still lots more to add, and not enough 
      time to add it... 
    
      note: I still have lots to add, but after realising that the release 
      that I thought had been released actually hadn't (which featured much 
      of the new release info like Rap Freaks and Drummania for PS2), I 
      figured that I should jet this out tonight... Please note that this 
      is a fairly incomplete release, and, for instance, credits people for 
      things that aren't in the document, etc... This should be fixed 
      shortly...
    
    ver.0.95.5/150999: still technically pre-release.
      added more info on the 'another' versions of the songs in 4th Mix. 
      added info on Horrible Course and Bonus Course (both in Expert Mode) 
      in 4th Mix. added info on Internet Ranking for Append 4th Mix. added 
      a bit of info on Samba de Amigo. added songlist for DDR2ndReMix, 
      GFpsx, GFarc, DM, PnM (DC). added more info to the PnM song list. did 
      some misc. editorial/formatting corrections. 
    
    ver.0.95b/110999: still technically pre-release.
      added more info to the 4th mix songlist, as well as how to open bonus 
      edit mode.
    
    ver.0.95a/100999: still technically pre-release.
      added and corrected to 4th mix expert stage flow. added info on 4th 
      mix secret mode (Another Course, Expert mode).
    
    ver.0.95/090999: still technically pre-release.
      added all of the info for 4th mix. added more info on the song lists 
      for 3rd mix and gottamix. added some misc. info like release dates 
      and book publishers, and fixed some misc. problems/errors. added info 
      on BMgb2. added info on the Beatmania hidden modes. added more info 
      on the DJ Station PRO. added info on DDR DAM. added more info on 
      DDRsolo. fixed some grammatical stuff/spelling, and some errors. 
      added a quick guide to DDR and filled in a lot of info on the DDR 
      song list (ask on gamefaqs.com and you shall recieve - DDR was the 
      number 2 most wanted faq for the PSX on the faq request chart). added 
      arcade song lists for bmIIdxSubClubVer2, DDRsoloBassMix, and TKD. 
      added a lot of possibilities to the artists section (thanks to bill 
      for the info). added how to unlock the hidden PSX DDR songs and edit 
      mode. added a bit on info on the DDR append disc, and the PS2 
      Drummania. added stage flow for 3rd mix PSX. added info on Pop'n 
      Stage (why, God, why?). 
    
    ver.0.89/240899: still technically pre-release.
      added info about the two WS hidden songs, and filled in the song 
      lists a bit more, as well as flow charts. Also updated the Artists 
      section with some info on who is actually who (from Beatmania Press   
      Guide), as well as info on Herbie Hancock/Hammock. Also added a bit   
      to the misc. section about Beatmania vs. Beat Mania, and about the 
      Tokimeki Memorial LCD game. Corrected spelling of 'syndrome' in first 
      sentence... Also, saw a preview copy of DDR2ndReMix in Laox the other 
      day and found that it has 29 songs, including BoomBoomDollar (my 
      personal favourite), as well as the incredibly over-played 
      Tubthumping by Chumbawumba... Added the number of songs to the BEMANI 
      release list, but haven't started a song list for it yet - it will 
      probably be a little while - too many other good games coming out 
      this month in both the US and Japan, including 4th Mix, Galerians, 
      Thousand Arms, and FFVIII - DDR2ndReMix has gotten pushed rather far 
      down on my personal list...
    
    ver.0.88/230899: still technically pre-release.
      added a lot of info on GB, as well as some more to the song lists for 
      Gotta and WS. Working on filling in the blanks on the song lists... 
      corrected some misc. stuff... Also working on beginning to re-format 
      the doc, as well as creating smaller, release-specific FAQs, but this 
      is just in the planning stage... Also wondering if it is in fact too 
      sprawling, and not concentrated enough... I didn't quite realise how 
      much non-game stuff had gotten in there (like the histories, the 
      other games, the artist names, etc...)...
    
    ver.0.87/200899: first public release, but still technically pre.
      cleaned up things a bit, added song lists and info on Beatmania GB, 
      corrected misc. info... still have some new non-BEMANI arcade games 
      to list, but it's almost 6am and I haven'd slep yet, so that's for 
      another time...
    
    ver.0.85/060899: private beta release. still pre-release. 
      Still missing some song info on 3rd Mix, Gottamix, and DDR, as well 
      as the Expert Mode list and how to open the hidden songs on 3rd. 
      Music CDs are still very thin, and some of the info on the books and 
      LCD games are missing as well, as is the entire arcade game song
      lists. The first PSX release is pretty much complete, though, and 
      Gotta is getting there...
    
    ver.pre/030899: Pre-release version/in-progress version. 
      Everything added.

    released not one, but multiple documents on the BEMANI series. This will 
    merely show you what is out there...
    
    Please note that this document is the main document - every other 
    document is merely a pared down version of this one for one reason or 
    another (usually-game specific), as I know that not everyone wants to 
    download a 200k document, of which only perhaps 5% is really relevant 
    for the game that they want.
    
    I believe that all of the titles should be pretty obvious of the 
    document's contents... All of the game specific titles include Stage 
    Flow, Hidden Songs/Modes/Characters, Songlists, and any other 
    information that is gameplay-relevant. All of the below FAQs can be

       read them...)
