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. 0.02: Stage Flow___________________________________________ Basic (Club M.Z.D) 4 Stages Stage 1:-----------Stage 2:----------Stage 3:---------Stage 4: Total Recall Total Recall Total Recall Total Recall Finding a New...

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. 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.] (B='basic mode' version, H='hard mode' version, @='another' version) Song Title Artist Genre Diff.
