0.01: Intro_________________________________________________

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

Please note that this FAQ only covers the Playstation release of 
Beatmania 5th Mix Append.  For a more comprehensive look at Beatmania 
and the rest of the BEMANI series, including things like Soundtracks 
(audio CDs), strategy guides, portable LCD games (the BEMANI Pocket 
games), and much much more, please check out my longer work titled DJ 
Syndrome: The BEMANI Series FAQ. 

All of the information contained in this FAQ is also available in the 
longer, more comprehensive work titled "DJ Syndrome: The BEMANI Series 
FAQ". This document is merely a scaled down version that only pertains 
to the Playstation release Beatmania Append 5th Mix (arcade versions and 
previous Beatmania discs are _not_ covered).

Title:   Beatmania 5th Mix ~time to get down~
System:  PSX

Intro:   The first Beatmania to feature popular Western artists, 5th Mix 
takes the 4th Mix interface and adds to it. The end is a well-rounded, 
and very deep, selection of songs. The popular modes introduced 
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 
High Speed Mode.

0.03: 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 

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. 

0.04: Hidden Modes_________________________________________

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 5th Mix. You'll be in Bonus 
Edit mode.

Also, after playing through all of the songs, then booting down the 
system and just playing regular 5th 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 5th Mix save, which is a separate entity.) 

0.05: Song List____________________________________________

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