Update: 27 November 2011:


This edition of the compendium is now depreciated.
Please see:
http://forum.project-imas.com/index.php/topic,1503.0.html for the new developments.
All focus will be allocated towards here. Thank you for your attention.



Update: 30 June 2011
Due to extensive damage on personal equipment used to maintain this as well as provide requests, updating of this Compendium has been shelved - No new revisions of the Compendium can be done for 3+ months unless someone wants to throw MS point codes my way to complete purchases, otherwise cover MSP costs, or is willing to assist in updating the compendium and has all the items in the Compendium to this point!.


Current version - Catalog 4 - Version 1.00

http://www.mediafire.com/file/6lcs6zin5pntj63/The%20idolmaster%202%20Compendium%20Catalog%204%20-%20Version%201.0.rar

As well, it contains preview pictures (Although it's basically a compiled set of jpgs) if you want an idea of how it looks.

Click on the button if you wish to chip in towards various costs incurred, or you just want to leave a tip. This isn't a performance thing although it might help me get a couple of items faster.

There isn't an obligation, although sometimes I get suspicious if other people believe that I do owe them something - if anything it's for time spent working on it. I don't own any of the material, just spending time to compile and work on it to spec.

Updates:

Catalog 4, 1.00

- Catalog 4 has been added. All available items are indexed.
- Catalog 3's Body-29 is now Body-31 in Catalog 4 - This is due to an NBGI decision to push the flag (Catalog 3's bonus item) down further in the list, instead of doing the smart thing (Like they did with Catalog 2's bonus item) and keep the position.


Catalog 3, 1.02

- Updated Stage to identify what stages allow for Quintet use and to provide further clarification with stages.
- Updated Song layout - Honey Heartbeat In Song 2 was redundant.
- Contact details updated to request title in corrispondence.


Catalog 3 - 1.01

- Clarified Character Notation with an example - Specifying the notation type is important. It is ONLY the text files that updated at this point.

Please note!
The compendium is a compressed file using the rar format, and needs to be uncompressed prior so you can access the folders inside for use. (Namely, decompress the folders to a folder on your hard drive before use.)

You will need to pick up a program to decompress rar files. There's a few available, I'll link one of each to start. There's others out there, just search for them.

Windows: Winrar  - http://www.rarlab.com/

Mac OSX - UnrarX - http://www.unrarx.com/, or you could try the Winrar beta.

... if you're using any other OS and need to ask this question, I'll clip you over the ear on principle. You should know better.



SPECIAL NOTE for im@s 2 OWNERS filling requests codified:


You can generally cheat (if you have all the regular items unlocked) by counting the number from left to right,  (First item is 1, next is item 2, next is item 3, last on the first row is item 4.) and going down to the next row.

For the Costume, you count the first code from left to right (01 is floral, 02 is Luxury, 03 is Starry, 04 is Extend) and go from there.

Remember that im@s 2 DOES NOT leave gaps for DLC items, so if it runs off the edge of the regular costumes and items (12 for costumes, 24 for accessories) you'd either need all the DLC items to code it correctly with this method, or you probably want the compendium to check.

Stages are static though, so if they say stage 31, they well, mean the stage listed as 31.

Rationale:

A couple of incidents just reminded me I need to get this finallised sooner than later. I may end up doing a program to automate most of it for my own use though.

First though, I'd need to develop the basic so consequently, a manual compendium. Some people have seen an earlier version I did initially, but that was a bit haphazard due to how DLC costumes are handled (They don't leave gaps anymore like L4U)

Current features:
- Costume preview for all items (barring note).
- Song setup layout.
- Stage preview.

How to use:


Read the Readme files, I guess but for a quick and dirty look:

Longhand:

Song Name
Char 1, Char 2, Char 3, Char 4, Char 5 (notation type)
Costume:    (Costume Catergory number) - (Costume Number)
Accessories:    (Part Catergory): (Part Number)
Stage: (Stage Number)
Additional notes:

Shorthand:


Song - Char 1, Char 2, Char 3, Char 4, Char 5 (notation type) (C sub#-item#) (A Hd-item# Bd-item# Ar-item# Lg-item#) (St stage#)
(Additional notes)

Use the compendium to fill in the numbers.


Notes and a basic to-do list:


I AM missing a single item, and that's the hamster from Catalog 1 (Catalog 2 and 3 do not require email purchases. 1 does.) and it will be revised for each catalog.

Due to Catalog 4 costing a kidney, I do not know when the hamster will be added. If you wish to donate towards purchasing the card to add, please let me know.

I also need to name all the costumes and accessories but their numbers will do just fine for now. If someone else wants to modify it by adding names to all the costumes, let me know. I will credit you for the work (It's just a case of massive copy pasting, as long as you keep the number at the front, you'll be fine.)

There is also some consideration to adding in unique costume notes that have been discovered as footage has been shot. It will be added when time allows.

I've still to work on timing notes (Namely bursts, their lengths and special notes, special effects for stages and the like) but this should do for a start.

I'm going to kill NBGI for the entirety of one reason - Some of the items have MOVED for no disernable reason.

This in effect means numbers WILL have to be updated, and in the process breaks one of the readouts (Catalog 2 complete bonus - the flag)

This means it is STRONGLY advised that you update your compendium to the latest version. I imagine it'll break at least one more time in the near future (the hamster leg accessory.)
