0.01: Intro_________________________________________________

'DJ Syndrome' is the main tagline of the marketing campaign for 
Beatmania 4th Mix ~The Beat Goes On~. It's also now a series of guides 
to Beatmania, Dance Dance Revolution and the rest of the BEMANI series 
of rhythm games by Konami. While not comprehensive, it should begin to 
answer some of the questions that you might have about the games. 

Please note that this FAQ only covers the Playstation2 release of 
Drummania.  For a more comprehensive look at Drummania and the rest of 
the BEMANI series, including things like Soundtracks (audio CDs), 
strategy guides, portable LCD games (the BEMANI Pocket games), and much 
much more, please check out my longer work titled DJ Syndrome: The 
BEMANI Series FAQ. 

All of the information contained in this FAQ is also available in the 
longer, more comprehensive work titled "DJ Syndrome: The BEMANI Series 
FAQ". This document is merely a scaled down version that only pertains 
to the Playstation2 release Drummania (the arcade version is _not_ 
covered, although much of the info may still apply).


Title:   Drummania
System:  PS2

Intro:   Drummania is a first in many aspects for Konami. Besides the 
obvious 'first BEMANI game for PS2', the title is the first to utilise 
the link-up feature that many of the newer arcade versions feature. By 
selecting 'Session Mode', drummers can grab a friend, as well as a 
Guitar Freaks controller or two, and play together. Drummania also 
features the first high-quality standard controller. While Beatmania had 
the high-quality DJ Station PRO released around the time of Append 3rd 
Mix, Drummania has its own high-quality Drummania Controller available 
right at release, putting other standard controllers (the ASCII 
Beatmania Controller, the DDR mats, etc.) to shame. Finally, Drummania 
is the first BEMANI game to be available in a special controller/game 
package, let alone only available that way. But beside the firsts that 
the game features, it is also one of the most kinetic and fun BEMANI 
titles available. Now if we could just do something about that price...


0.02: Stage Flow___________________________________________

(note that each song is playable once per game, so if you play Ska Ska 
No.1 in Stage 1, it will not be in Stage 2 or 3, etc.)

0.05: Song List____________________________________________

includes the bonuses recieved at the end of the level. And yes, I let 
the computer get those scores through auto-play; I'm not _that_ good... 
;]
