Something came in the mail today~

The nice FedEx man dropped this off,

and inside, was a beatmania IIDX controller.

Modding really, really pissed me off, but after about four hours, it finally worked (though I hope the keys don’t stick >_>).

And I totally suck at IIDX (that was on a level 4 song).

So now, evidence of my soraphillia (courtesy of sola).

Also, finally changed my desktop. Kemonomimi ftw.

    oooh nice. i’ve been meaning to get into BeatMania for a long time, but i usually find something else to import and then i’m out of money.

    Thanks to the magic of the internet, the only thing one needs to import is a controller (or in other cases, just buy BMUS, since it comes with a controller already). Of course, this is assuming that one’s PS2 is already modded properly.

    I never even bothered modding either of my controllers.

    I stopped using my BMUS one because the turntable is fucked. Probably has something to do with the fact that I tore up part of the cord by rolling a chair on it. Oh well.

    The Japanese controller is a lot better than the American one anyway.

    Anyway, my tips:

    1. Use random. Always. This is the absolute best way to become better quickly.
    2. Use towel/sudden+. Seriously.

    Huh, I’m used to looking at the notes in the middle of the screen since I’m still haven’t fully adjusted from the 5 key to the 7 key layout. Sometimes, I accidentally hit the space between keys because a key from 5key beatmania was there. I still have to learn pinky scratching too.

    My tips for IIDX would probably be..

    1. Increase your volume to around 45-55% of MAX. It’s nice, as you can listen to the beats better, and hopefully, get your timing in sync.

    2. Put your mind into what you’re doing. This is very much the case in IIDX, as getting good scores (and even clearing the song) requires a good deal of focus, perhaps even more so than other music games.

    3. NEVER use Assist-Clear (5k or Auto-scratch). It’s like Auto-Bass in DM. As they say, “Don’t get addicted to it.”
