Source Code and Related Things

Source Code
Wait, it's all in uncompiled C?!

All of the game's scripts can be found in SCRIPT/SCRIPT.DAT, uncompiled, and filled with hidden credits and stubbed out code. There are also several lines relating to scrapped Windows/Mac OS releases of the game, which include support for mouses.

Crash Handler

BEATUTIL.SCT is code for a crash handler.

// エラー表示
long Error_Display( inErr )
	str	theFontName;
	if ( IsMacOS( ) ){
		theFontName = "Osaka";
		theFontName = "MS Pゴシック";

	sprintf1( string[0], "%d : エラーっす!", inErr );
	Paint( 0, 0, 640, 480, RGB( 0, 0, 0 ) );
	TextOut( 100, 100, string[0], 24, theFontName, RGB( 255, 255, 255 ) );

Unused Graphics

Cursor graphics can be found between the images in IMAGE/IMAGE.DAT. According to the game's scripts, these would be set to appear if the platform in which the game is running is identified as not being a PlayStation 2. However, the game was never released outside this console.

Early Opening

DUMMY.DAT is actually a .PSS video file. Its content? An early rendition of the game's opening cinematic.

Unlock Code

Referenced in SCRIPT/SCRIPT.DAT/BEATSEL.SCT is an unlocking code: inputting TEKUMAKUMAYAKONPARANOIAWODASHITENE@ on the song selection menu unlocks all hidden songs.

Japanese Translated
テクマクマヤコン パラノイアを出してね Tekumakumayakon, take out PARANOiA

This text is a reference to the classic magical girl anime Himitsu no Akko-chan, in which series protagonist Atsuko Kagami uses a mirror compact and the spell "Tekumakumayakon Tekumakumayakon" to shapeshift.

Broken Breakout

Clicking the Credits option in the main menu while holding the X key would trigger a secret Breakout minigame, presumably, the same as the one featured in beatmania BEST DA!! and pop'n music DA!!. While the code for this screen exists, as SCRIPT/SCRIPT.DAT/BEATJOY.SCT, it tries to load a graphics file that does not exist, freezing the game.
