    1. Introduction
    
    Welcome to my IIDX 8th Style FAQ. You may notice that some parts of this FAQ
    are also in my 6th Style and 7th style FAQs. That's because there's a lot of
    similarities between the two games (and to the entire IIDX series in general).
    
    A note to viewers: This guide is saved in Shift_JIS format. While most of it
    will appear normally, there are two items that may appear a little oddly.
    Change your browser encoding to Japanese (Shift_JIS) to view those properly.
    You'll need Japanese support installed on your system, and I cannot assist with
    this (especially for Linux systems, where I do not know how to do this myself).
    The only items that are affected are the genre for Bit Mania and the artist for
    Taiyo.

    3. How to Play
    
    IIDX is said to have the steepest learning curve in the Bemani series. The
    basic gameplay involves hitting keys on the IIDX controller and turning a
    turntable. However, as the songs get harder, the note sequences get varied
    quite well. In order to pass under normal conditions, you must end a song with
    80% or higher. However, you cannot be failed out at any time unless you hold
    Start down for 3-4 seconds.
    
    4. Arcade Mode
    
    This is the main mode of IIDX 8th Style. However, unlike the previous Styles,
    it does not provide a submenu for all of the other modes. You can only access 5
    Key and 7 Key modes here, on either Single or Double.
    
    When you choose this mode from the menu, you must select 1P or 1P&2P, then 7
    Keys or 5 Keys, then (depending on the first mode), Single/Double/Double Battle
    (1P), or simply whether to enable Battle (1P&2P). After making your selections,
    the round begins.
    
    7 Keys: Normal mode. Some songs are not available on certain stage
    numbers. Can switch difficulties between Light 7/7 Keys/Another(7).
    Note that some songs do not have Another(7) sets. If you switch to
    Another(7)/Another(14) at any time, the songs without these sets will drop off
    the list.
    
    5 Keys: Same as 7 Key mode, but the right two key columns are removed from
    play. This mode does not track records separately, only clear status. There is
    no Light 5 or Another(5) mode here, however.
    
    Enabling the Double option will double all numbers, obviously.
    
    Note that as with previous styles, there is an opportunity to earn an extra
    song. The conditions vary depending on the difficulty of your final song. They
    are as follows:
    
    7 or Flashing 7 stars: Clear the song
    6 stars: End the song with 100%
    5 stars: Full Combo the song
    4 or fewer stars: Get a flashing Great bonus on a song
    
    Extra Stage is simply another song, no special restrictions. However, unlike
    previous styles, the songs Sakura and Xenon are not normally selectable in
    Arcade Mode (use Free Mode to play them easily). To unlock Sakura for selection
    as an Extra Stage song for the current session only, you must earn an A or
    better on a Flashing 7 star song in Another mode, with Hard Play on. You will
    unlock the special Sakura background (also a gallery picture), and Sakura will
    be selectable as an Extra Stage. Should you play it on Another with Hard Play
    on, and pass with at least an A, you will get the Xenon background as your
    results screen (another Gallery picture), and Xenon will start after you leave
    the results screen without any opportunity to change modifiers.
    
    5. Beginner Mode
    
    This mode is to learn IIDX. When you first enter it, a robot will give you tips
    (in Japanese, naturally, so just skip this section if you don't understand it).
    You must pick a level to play on. After doing this and reading (or not reading)
    the information, you will get the songlist for songs of the difficulty (and
    below) you've chosen. Play proceeds as normal. There are two Gallery pictures
    that can be earned from this mode, more in the Unlocks section.
    
    Note: Modifiers cannot be chosen when Level 1 is selected.
    
    6. Free Mode
    
    If you don't like the dead time between rounds of Arcade Mode, you'll probably
    spend nearly all your time here. All songs available to you are here (there are
    3 unlocks which do not initially appear), so just pick one and start playing.
    There's some new stuff around, and some slight changes to some of the new
    features from 7th.
    
    When you first enter Free Mode, you'll see a menu with options. First option is
    who's playing. If you are playing Double, you can pick 1P or 2P Only, or 1P &
    2P. Auto options are available as well. Second line is your game modifier (6th
    and earlier allowed you to pick your song modifiers here as well, but 7th and
    8th do not), Normal, Battle or Double. Normal cancels out the other two. Battle
    gives two players the standard Single notechart for the song and pits them
    against each other (choosing Battle will cause 1P & 2P to become automatically
    selected if 1P or 2P Only is selected). At the end of the song, the player with
    the better score will be declared the winner. Normal with 2 players gives the
    Double notechart with each player taking their respective side of it.
    
    The 3rd line is the play option. You can choose 7 Keys or 5 Keys here. They are
    the same as in Arcade Mode.
    
    And finally, hit Start to begin your session.
    
    The initial menu will appear on the songlist. You must choose how to sort
    (default is by difficulty rating, or level). Sorting by Level and Title do
    their respective things. Sort by Miss Count will sort by the miss count,
    starting with the lowest and going up. Unplayed songs will be at the end in
    alphabetical order. Miss Count is the number of Bads+Poors on a song (including
    excess Poors), and the lowest number is kept for records. Sort by Play Count is
    as it says. Note that the play count for each notechart is tracked separately.
    
    And finally, the last non-border options. EX score will display your Expert
    score (which is used for records) in place of what is normally called your
    gmoneyh score (I still have no idea where that term comes from). Place a
    check next to it to activate it. Hi-Speed will allow you to quickly define
    Hi-Speed settings if your Hi-Speed Setting option is set to Each Music in the
    Options Menu (under Extra Settings). It begins with HS4, and you pick the
    fastest song to use HS4 on. Then repeat with HS3 down to HS1. Hitting Not Use
    will clear that HS setting from all songs that have it.
    
    Finally, you have the songlist display options. All Music is self-explanatory.
    New Music displays the songs that are new to IIDX 8th Style Arcade (including
    songs which were previously only in consumer versions, the unlockables (most of
    them) from 6th Style) as well as any unlocks you may have and songs new to the
    Consumer version of 8th Style. Old Music displays the songs that were in
    previous AC releases. Not Played is self-explanatory. The DJ Level options will
    display songs with that DJ Level. Not Cleared will display unplayed and failed
    songs. Not Cleared (Hard) will display all songs that have not been cleared
    with the Hard modifier (in other words, those that do not have Hard Clear in
    their record section).
    
    Note that while your cursor is on a song display option, the game will display
    how many songs fit that option on the currently selected difficulty.
    
    After you've chosen your song display option, simply pick a song and start
    playing.
    
    7. Modifiers
    
    There are 7 different modifier sets that can be chosen. You can choose
    modifiers in two ways: Arcade style, or Home Version style. Go to the
    Options menu, and select Extra Settings to change this. Push the Start button
    on any screen to open the modifier list.
    
    Group 1:
    
    Random: Notes are shuffled, but maintain similar patterns. In Double Play each
    controller is randomized separately.
    Mirror: Notes are mirrored. In Double Play, the controllers are mirrored
    individually.
    Random+Mirror: Same as Random in Single and Double. Don't know why this
    combination is possible, as it's pointless.
    Random+: Special modifier, must be unlocked. If it is available, hold the key
    down while selecting Random and Random+ will appear. Same as Random, except
    that the scratch is now included in the randomization. Using this modifier will
    cause records to remain unaltered.
    
    Group 2:
    
    Easy: Groove Gauge decreases less with each Bad/Poor, and gains more with note
    hits.
    Hard: Each Bad/Poor will remove 10% from the Groove Gauge. Note hits
    increase the gauge at a normal rate. The 80% pass restriction is removed (can
    pass with any percentage), but if 0% is reached, autofail takes effect. (Note
    that 0% cannot be attained in normal play mode, the gauge bottoms out at 2%)
    Note that Easy and Hard will affect your Clear status this time around. The
    order of clear display is Play (failed), Easy Clear, Clear, then Hard Clear.
    
    Group 3:
    
    Autoscratch: Can be set to one or both sides in Versus/Battle/Double.
    Turntable notes (called scratches) do not need to be hit. Using this mode will
    cause the Records to remain unaltered.
    
    Group 4:
    
    Battle: In 2P Mode, enabling this will give both sides the Single notes. At the
    end of the song, the two players are compared by Expert Score, and the player
    scoring higher is deemed the winner. This must be chosen before you start your
    game. Enabling this in Double Play mode will have the same effects, but no
    scorekeeping will be in effect.
    
    Group 5:
    
    Double: One player plays with 2 controllers. This must be chosen before you
    start your game.
    
    Group 6:
    
    Hidden: Notes disappear before reaching the bottom.
    Sudden: Notes appear about halfway down the screen.
    Hidden+Sudden: Notes are only visible for a short time near the center of the
    screen.
    
    Group 7:
    
    Hi-Speed: Alter the speed of the song. Normal Speed, or HS1-4 can be chosen. In
    Free Mode, Hi-Speed settings can be saved for each individual song. Go to
    Options Mode and look at Extra Settings to turn this on or off. Double and
    Single Hi-Speed settings are saved separately.
    
    In Class Mode the modifier menu operates in a special way. Hi-Speed modifiers
    are the only ones that can be chosen, but they can be chosen individually for
    each song (for instance, play Love Is Orange on HS2 and Drivin on HS3 in the
    same course). If the Hi-Speed option is set to Each Music, these are read from
    your saved settings, and saved back if changed.
    
    Special note for Sakura: Hi-Speed 1 and Hi-Speed 2 have half their normal
    effects on this song, due to it's high BPM.

    9. Expert Courses
    
    Expert Mode uses a special lifebar. At the beginning of a course, you start
    with 100%, rather than the default 22%. You play over 5, or more, songs, with
    your lifebar transferring in the same state from one song to the next. You can
    choose between Light 7, 7 Keys, or Another(7) difficulty (double the numbers if
    in Double Play). Light 7 will bump all difficulties down by one, while Another
    will raise them by one. Another cannot be chosen for courses that have all the
    songs at the maximum difficulty already. If Another is chosen for a course with
    some songs at their highest difficulty, they will not change. Same goes for if
    Light 7 is chosen for courses with songs at their lowest difficulty (which is
    Light 7 for all songs).
    
    In the list, if Light 14 is indicated, the song is on Light only for Double
    Play (there are no courses with songs on Light for Single Play). If Another is
    indicated, the song is on Another for both Single and Double. Another(7)
    indicates that the song is only on Another for Single Play (songs with this
    indication lack Another(14) sets).

    10. Class Mode
    
    Class Mode (also known as Dan Mode) is a mode which effectively measures skill
    at IIDX. There are 7 kyu (5 on Double) and 10 dan courses. The progression
    starts at 7-kyu (5-kyu on Double), going to 1-kyu, then it goes to 1-dan going
    all the way to 10 dan. The courses for Single and Double are different. Scoring
    is the standard IIDX scoring system (instead of Expert scoring), and you are
    given an Achivement rating at the end based on how many notes you hit. This
    Achievement amount is what is displayed on the Internet Ranking, your actual
    score will not appear if you enter the IR code you receive. Also, IR codes for
    Dan Mode are saved on your memory card, press Select while looking at the
    records to view the code. Letters are in white, numbers are in purple. It is
    not possible to alter the difficulty of the courses, and the only selectable
    modifier is Hi-Speed (which can be selected individually for each song).
    
    Note that only 1 Dan course (and all of the kyu courses) is available at the
    start. You will need to clear it to open the further ones up. They unlock
    progressively (clearing courses will unlock a couple more), the exception being
    10-dan (which requires a clear of 9-dan to open).
    
    Internet Ranking Note: If you enter a score for a course more difficult than
    the hardest one you already have a score for, your other score will be wiped.
    You can only have a ranking for one course at a time, since the courses are
    difficulty progression.
    
    The courses are as follows:
    
    Single Play Courses:

    11. Unlocks
    
    Taiyo is unlocked by clearing all songs on any difficulty, any mode (including
    5 Keys and Autoscratch). The only modes confirmed not to work are playing with
    one or both sides on Auto Play in Free Mode. However, playing in 2P mode might
    not work either (from what I gather from one of the emails I got on this, I
    don't have anyone to play with to verify this myself). No clear method is known
    for Spiral Galaxy and Don't Be Afraid Myself.
    
    12. Scoring System
    
    Flashing Greats are worth more than Greats. Each song is worth 200,000
    points maximum. You can gain the following bonuses:
    
    Border Bonus: Finish a song with your groove gauge at 80% in normal mode for a
    bonus of 5730.
    Great Bonus: Finish a song with all Greats or better (Poors resulting from
    extra note hits don't count) for a bonus of 3110.
    Flashing Great Bonus: Finish a song with all flashing Greats or better
    (Poors resulting from extra note hits are excluded) for a bonus of 4620.
    Great+Border Bonus: Achieve both the Great and Border bonus for 11900points.
    Note that this isn't a straight addition of the two above bonuses.
    Flashing Great+Border Bonus: Achieve both the Flashing Great and Border
    bonuses (very difficult) for 19900 points.
    
    No bonuses are possible when playing in Expert Mode, as the scoring is
    different. The Great Bonuses can be applied in Class Mode, however, but the
    Border Bonus cannot be earned due to the different lifebar. Also, if you are
    using EX score view instead of the standard score view, you cannot earn any
    bonus (not that it matters much since Free Mode is the only place where it can
    be used).
    
    EX Score: This is used to determine your DJ level, and for records.
    Flashing Greats are worth two points, Greats are worth 1, all other
    judgements are worth 0.
    
    Grading System: The IIDX grading system is standard to the series, for the
    styles that give you grades. While 7th Style will display your grade
    automatically, you can use this information to figure out how many more EX
    points you need to get a higher grade, or the grade you would have gotten on
    an older style that doesn't use grades (such as 3rd Style). To gain an AAA,
    you need 8/9 of the total possible EX points. AA needs 7/9, A needs 6/9 and
    so on down the line. The lowest grade with a requirement, E, needs 2/9 of
    the EX points, if you are lower than this, you will receive an F.
    
    13. Cleaning Your Controller
    
    This section only applies to the official Konami IIDX controller.
    
    The official IIDX controller is designed to be taken apart. Separate the
    main key unit from the controller by pressing the eject button underneath
    the controller and pulling the key unit away. Turn the unit upside down and
    remove the 6 screws. They are all the same, so don't worry about mixing them
    up. Remove the underside of the controller, then take out the two screws
    connecting the PCB to the buttons. They are differently colored from the 6
    you removed earlier. Take the PCB out carefully (note that it only goes on
    in one direction). Make sure the unit is still upside down or the main keys
    will go flying. Remove the rubber from each of the keys (the rubber attached
    to the Start and Select buttons is a little different, and cannot be put on
    the main keys). Remove the keys themselves, and clean around the sides.
    Afterwards, put the keys back in, attach the rubber (make sure the keys all
    sink into their slots). Attach the PCB (if you're putting it on incorrectly,
    you won't be able to see all 6 screw attachment holes. If this is the case,
    reverse it), then use the two silver colored screws to screw it down. Place
    the black bottom onto the unit (make sure you can see the 6 screw holes,
    reverse it if you can't) and then reattach it. Slide it back into the main
    unit.
    
    14. Additional Frequently Asked Questions
    
    This section is for information that doesn't really fit in any other
    section.
    
    Q: The game won't let me select 7 Keys, or play any of the extra modes!
    
    A: The game thinks you have a 5 Key controller. This option is set when you
    start the game without system data available. If you initially set your
    controller to Original 5 Keys, you will need to go into the options and set it
    to Original 7 Keys (only if you have a 7 Key IIDX controller). If you do not
    have a 7 Key IIDX controller, you can set the option to DualShock 2, and use
    your PS2 controller to play the extra modes. Note that Player 1 and Player 2
    have this option set individually (Player 1 can be set to Original 7 Keys, and
    Player 2 can be set to DualShock 2, for example).
    
    Q: I'm left handed. Is there any way to switch the controller around so
    I can hit the keys with my left hand and use the scratch with my right?
    
    A: Sure, at least with a Konami IIDX controller. The key unit is separable from
    the main unit. Underneath the controller, find a button, and push it to be able
    to remove the key unit. Take the unit out, remove the protective cover that's
    on the right side of the unit, and move it to the connector on the left side.
    Flip the key unit around so that the newly opened connector will slide into the
    main unit's connector. After you've done this, you will be able to play with
    the controller switched around from the normal configuration. With the default
    options, this will appear exactly like Player 2's side does, but you can change
    this if you like in the Options menu.
    
    If you are using a Rave Discman controller, simply rotate the two sides of it.
    I do not know how this works with a Konami Arcade Style Controller, and I'm not
    about to dump $430 on one to find out either.
    
    Q: I'm looking for a particular song on the game song list, but I don't see it!
    Where'd it go?
    
    A: You are either on Another(7) or Another(14) mode. When either of these is
    selected, the game removes songs that don't have them from the list. Press
    Select to switch out, and the songs will reappear.
