beatmania 3rdMIX

Release Information

  • Release date: September 28th, 1998

General Information / Changes

Bm3rd.png

  • First beatmania game to keep track of your combo count.
    • GOODs break your combo.
    • GREATs flash if you have more than 10 combo, but this gives no bonuses.
  • The score calculation in beatmania 3rdMIX is unique:
    • GOOD = 70,000 ÷ TotalNotes ÷ 5
    • GREAT (1-10) = 70,000 ÷ TotalNotes + 30,000 ÷ (45 + 10 × (TotalNotes - 10)) × (Combo - 1)
    • GREAT (11-more) = 70,000 ÷ TotalNotes + 30,000 ÷ (45 + 10 × (TotalNotes - 10)) × 10
  • One of two games in the series (the other being beatmania) where EXPERT is accessed via a button command or modifier on the PRESS START screen, instead of by selecting it on a mode selection screen.
  • A grade screen identical to the EXPERT screen is now displayed after completing any mode.
  • EASY mode is now available. It differs from NORMAL mode in regards to the songs that can be chosen and when.
  • HIDDEN and DOUBLE, introduced in the previous game, are now implemented as regular modifiers that are activated by holding down a button (instead of as button commands).
  • Three new modifiers were introduced:
    • BATTLE, which allows two players to play the same exact chart, instead of a split chart as in regular versus mode.
    • MIRROR, which inverts the notechart (besides the scratches).
    • RANDOM, which randomizes the notechart of the song you're playing (besides the scratches).
  • First BEMANI game worked on by Gyo Eguchi (VJ GYO), who became the chief movie designer of beatmania IIDX a few months later, a position he still holds to this very day.
  • First BEMANI game released with the 1998-2003 KONAMI logo on the start-up screen.
    • However, older revisions of the game, along with the cabinet itself, still show the 1986-1998 Italicized KONAMI logo.
  • beatmania 3rdMIX was released the same day as pop'n music, marking the first time two BEMANI games were released the same day in the arcades.
  • FREE ZONE was removed.
