beatmania 2ndMIX

Release Information

  • Release date: March 18th, 1998

General Information / Changes

2ndlogo.png
  • HIDDEN modifier is introduced, which makes notes disappear in the middle of the screen.
  • DOUBLE modifier is introduced, which allows a single player to play the 1P & 2P version of charts while using a single lifebar and score counter.
  • Only arcade game with the HIDDEN and DOUBLE modifiers where they must be activated using a button command instead of by pressing or holding down a button.
  • Difficulty levels are now on a scale of 1 to 6.
  • Hiroshi Watanabe makes his BEMANI debut.
  • 20,novemver and e~emotion had their typos from the previous game fixed, and are now 20,november and e-motion.
  • Some of the mechanics of FREE ZONE were changed:
    • Some scratch notes can appear during FREE ZONE.
      • To obtain a GREAT, players must play perfectly (i.e. obtain what would be considered a GREAT judgment) during every scratch note of the FREE ZONE. It is counted as one GREAT, which is why notecounts are not different between the original beatmania and 2ndMIX.
    • By playing perfectly, a base Stage Score of 100,000 points can now be obtained on all songs.

EXPERT Courses

If the courses are played with two players (or with one player using the DOUBLE modifier), the alternate songs or versions are used instead of the original.

Furthermore, if DIP switches 3-3 and 3-6 are set to ON, the following songs are used instead in their corresponding EXPERT course:

  • e-motion (2nd MIX): Will be played on the fifth stage, instead of e-motion, in CLASSIC.
  • Acid Bomb: Will be played on the third stage, instead of Salamander Beat Crush mix, in TECHNO.
