|beatmania 5thMIX: Time to get down|
This game has a notes page
Starting from offset 0x261E0 in the main CPU is a title/artist masterlist of some sorts, whereas song titles are shifted 23 letters forward in an alphabet which also includes numbers from 0 to 9 and spacebar. However, some slots don't seem to be used; forcing those to appear in the song selection screen will load their genre as "TECHNO", save for SKIN, which loads as "R&B". Slots are in decimal numbers.
|58||DUMMY #55||DUMMY SECTOR #55|
|59||DUMMY #56||DUMMY SECTOR #56|
|60||DUMMY #57||DUMMY SECTOR #57|
|61||DUMMY #58||DUMMY SECTOR #58|
|62||DUMMY #59||DUMMY SECTOR #59|
Additionally, force loading entries 53 and 54 (CAN OF ASS KICKS and REBEL ENFORCER, the How to Play songs) into the song selection screen will load placeholder artist tags (DUMMY SECTOR #50 and DUMMY SECTOR #51, respectively) and genre (TECHNO).
At the beginning of the game's uncompressed HDD data, the following string is found:
