Hey, just got Distorted CS in today, with myself looking directly at the disc as I write, so I figured now would be a good time to start up a thread dedicated to it.  I'm going to return from a shower and a play through in about an hours or so.

Info on unlocking, unconfirmed...

Note Explosions
9th: Clear 1-dan
Fire: Clear 1-dan
Military: Clear 4-dan
Space: Clear 8-dan

Songs
Caldeira: Clear beatmania course in Expert mode
Drunk Monky: Hard Clear all bm1 songs on [A], or Hard Clear in one Arcade Mode run: Attack the music -> super highway -> 321 STARS

In Arcade Mode, Hard Clear w/ A 3 songs of ascending difficulty, last must be 9-star or higher.

One More Extra Stage (Nageki)
Hard Clear all 4 Cardinal Gate songs (as Arcade Extra Stage), then get a Hard Clear w/ AA on a CG song for Extra Stage.

Gameplay Frames
Cardinal Gate: Clearing any CG song as Arcade Extra Stage gets you its frame.
beatmania: Hard Clear all the bm1 songs.

Artist Song Select BGMs
Playing a song by a Bemani artist will get you their song select music.
I've heard instances where the unlock doesn't work right, but the CS collabs always work and are often worth 2.

Why Did You Go Away (Boy's Reason)
When you pick Why Did You Go Away, hold Select immediately after pressing the white key.

Extra Stage Song Select in Free Mode
After collecting all the CG frames, hold Start and Select immediately after the Free Mode settings screen.

Quick Restart in Free Mode
When you fail a song with Hard bar, immediately hold one black and one white key. The song will restart, skipping the results screen.

Ah corn!  There's no way I'm going to be able to do most of that if true.

It's more the Dans I'm worried about, only about a 3 or 4 level player.

Anywho, new stuff seen so far!

Seems a few more options have been added to the rival meter thing, with in inclusion of Pacemaker A/AA/AAA, which each one playing the song achieving the minimum amount of points for each respective grade.

There's about two less Song Select BGMs this time around, but I've not unlocked any as of yet, still haven't left Free Mode yet.

The full version of Quell is epic.

Now, let's see if my 5 or so songs played so far have gotten anything.

Edit: Unlocked Taka and Yoshiaguargan's (sorry...) Music Select BGMs, assuming for completing songs from said artists.  Both are very nice.

For a moment I thought you meant "3 or 4-dan player" and I'm like "oh, well, that's not a problem then".

Ah, and I forgot to mention artist BGMs there, but yeah, that's the idea, and I'll update the post.

I am a 3 or 4-dan player, I'm more or less a 6-7 level player.  Sorry for the confusion.

Played some old songs and new songs, didn't get diddly squat except the 9th style music select BGM..

In that case you're not going to miss out on too much.

It's rather frustrating to be 7-dan because goodies are just outside your reach :(

Oh man, "Cardinal Gate conclusion" is AMAZING. Now I need to update the existing files with it.

MAYA (yes, the one who makes the BG vids for Tatsh songs) has rival data in DD CS, it turns out.

MAYA 広島 六段 三段

This is her. 7k 6-dan, 14k 3-dan, nothing to sneeze at, really.

Oh yes. I'm personally curious as to the skill level of Taka and wac; the latter is damn good with the piano, though, so I wonder if he's actually cleared 11-dan?

He can probably play his own stuff... although Osamu Kubota has demonstrated that he can play his stuff but not at full speed.  Just to give some background.

Well, Kubota is lame anyway, so the question is wac.

Now I also wonder if wac can play Scorpion Fire on the piano for reals?

If so, more power to him.
They have to get SOME people to play them before they decide the charts are decent, yes?

Usually, that's what the tatsujins are for?

But tatsujins don't play until machine loctests, in which charts are already 99% completed, yes?

I mean, I don't make SM files so hard that even I cannot play/pass them.  If I can't do it, how will I know if it's good or not?  Someone on the inside obviously has to be really good.  ITG also did this, they made sure all of their charts are passable on pad, thus, they must have someone or a few someones that can play that well.

There's always the possibility that they make stuff that they know is impossible to play because *someone* will end up passing it... like HST.

Not before other people had a chance to pass it, but yeah, still.  He's a modern hero.

True--there are principles you can apply, though. I still haven't nailed Necropotence quite yet, the 888 section takes me down. Yet I'm sure of its difficulty level and general quality.

Also, as a statement of fact, the inverse is also a possibility.

Huh, good luck finding the right Taka, there's about 15 of those guys in the rival data.  Hadn't thought of looking for Osamu though.

Taka isn't there--the only "big name" employee in there is probably Maya.
