That's fan letter, maybe it boost the fan increament after live.1. You don't need PS for DLC. Catalog DLC may be needed.
2. All content in PS is available in SS except for few useless one.
3. No.

Dark what are the songs that doesn´t exist in SS of PS?

And how many years you can play in the game (In The IM@S 2 you only can play 1 year)

Just to save a bit of trouble (and to clarify for various reasons) here's answers for you:

The Platinum Stars Costume and Song DLC that was available for purchase will directly transfer over - you do not need to own Platinum Stars to buy the DLC, but it is paid DLC only that carries over - no preorder or promotional materials from Platinum stars will transfer over, neither will the mail boost DLC (as there is a set there for use)

Stella Stage is an infinite time game - apart from achievements (which require you to earn the six major titles) you are not time pressured, but the 48 week year (12*4) will have different events available depending on when in the year you are.

Any songs that aren't in PS or SS will most likely be released as Stella Stage DLC.

Guys, after finally getting all the trophies, these are things that I got trought the gameplay (might not add value, but wanted to share):
-The difference between PRO and MASTER Difficulty is not to much, for me at the moment is about 3000-5000 higher than PRO
-You can also play all the game in PRO difficulty, if you stress  restarting many times in master, but the results will depend basicaly much on your idols status and skills (If you want, you can use lessons for specifics lives, but believe me, just if you want to reach some scores asap)
-Kotori can give you a valentine chocolate, i did not saw the effect to be honest, but it related to the live (might be higher rewards?, it was a yellow bird colored box)
-The merry xmas gift gives the same effect of the chocolates from valentine, but this time, for all the idols.
-The live Odissey, that appears in the special tab, and is indicated on the schedule (a solo live), will raise a lot the guage of the hearts (omoide level).
-You can get the tittle Idol Ultimate (correct me if wrong with the naming) with Shika, so you feel you are producing her more, if you have level up her enough and max rank of burst and omoide. Last even is about 84k score, I could get it with a Shika level 47, and max b and max o. (on pro difficulty). Do not forget to use the dress of the week´s trend, song wont be available for Shika, even if is it ToP!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
-If you use Shika, as if you use other idol, your others non used characters will get recover a bit for the next week.
-The idols specifics S rank lives, appears to me depending on which ones i have completed (for example, i ex cleared Haruka READY live, and changed character to Chihaya and her AOI TORI live appeared, after ex clear that one, a Miki Quintet live appeared (JIBUN REST@RT), after that Iori, Azusa, Ami, and then Takane (CHANGE), after that Hibiki, and then i stopped playing to get the six titles, even though Hibikis live is still appearing if I choose her as a leader.
-As a recommendation, if you want to enjoy the game way more, get all the idols to rank A before getting the first to rank S, so you can feel you re taking more fun before seeing an ending.

Things that changed since the update:
-KOSMOS, COSMOS on debut and BRAND NEW DAY on regular, will not give huge score any longer (i just use it once to try it, it was so impressive when i get 2900 points from one double appeal after the burst, but not used it again, that was cheating).
-Xmas "dinner" does not happen anymore in the morning, but now at night (a huge turkey for breaktfast does not sound so good) / can somebody confirm this?
-The bug with the white cosmic dress does not happen anymore, the dress turns on normally.
-Sometimes the blank background between waiting times does not comes smooth always (only in the animations where you can press the option button to skip the scene)
-Other bugs i saw they were fixed but are too small to talk about them.

Guys, I have a question, how do you get the black version of the dres that you see on the trailer, the new dress that is used for ToP!!!!!!!!!!!.

Thanks, if i come with new things i will post it.

Thank you so much but the question that i want to do (sorry if i do it in a bad form) is

Which of the songs (Like Kiramekirai or Ippai Ippai) That appear in PS (In-game) appears in SS (Not DLC).

And again, thank you so much for take your time for answer my questions

All songs that show in Platinum Stars will show up as Stella Stage songs.

You will need to do the requisite live to unlock the song. They are scattered across all categories, so if you haven't seen a song that was in the base Platinum Stars in Stella Stage yet, you will need to keep playing.

Hi guys,

I have any question, because it’s my first idolmaster game.

- since the first year, I need to go rank with just one idol at first time and take all coaching map leader with her and up the other after or

- the best way for up rank it’s lives, right ?


And the last : after the second year ( year of the SP) the game is time free or we need run after the time again and again ?

Sorry for the questions but I’m new with this game and I can’t read Japanese ^^ and this his the 4th I erase my party for replay.


 Thank you guys and have a good day

I guess English isn't your native language. Maybe next time write what you want to say in English and in your native language, if someone understands that they might be able to answer the questions you are actually asking, but i'll try:

It's up to you if you want to focus on a single idol first, a part of them or all of them, all ways are valid. Do the hardest events you can ex clear for faster rank ups. And on the 3rd of every month, there is an SP quintet that gives a ton of CP: the hell training. This helps a lot to get your girls up to speed skill wise.

There is no need to reset, you can't screw up in this game, just keep going and improving your idols. It's probably impossible to beat all the title lives in the 2nd year. Train your idols and do them when you are ready.



As for my question: is there any system behind the girl's tiredness? It feels really random, sometimes i can do 1 or 2 events and the level drops, other times i can do 5 or so.

About tiredness formula, not sure if somebody has gone trough the game to know how is it calculated, but by experience, i can feel that solo lives are the less tyring, and duo, trio, sept and all stars (specially these last two) make the idol status to be tired really easy (only for all stars there is one skill acquired by CP that makes the idols less tired by performing an all stars live, which i have to say, is a huge effect, i can commit three all stars lives with the same leader, and then i am able to see the idol tired).

Also, if you are performing a rank up live, tiredness affection will be hugely reduced, as for example, i went from rank F to rank A for the other idols i normally do not produce, and always they have the winkly pink smily face.

Appart from that, there might be a theory that says ¨tiredness affection will depend onthe live also, and idol level and rank¨, but not sure if this is right.

By last, no matter what idol you use, there will be a small recovery of idol status by each end of the week, sometimes after the live your idol is tired, purple face, (as you can see in the results of the week), but the next is with the blue-green one, this effect is a bit greater to those idols you did not use in the live, even though, this recovery is limited until the yellow smiley face, no matter how i do not use an idol, if i do not take a day off, her status wont go to Winkly pink smile face.

@darkthunder

thanks, for answering my questions.


@Naryoril

Oh, thanks for saying where to get hell's training.  I was wondering where to find that.



By the way, unless I'm missing something, isn't the solution about tiredness status just to take a day off?  Whenever, I reach yellow status, I do a day off, and it turns pink happy face.  I suppose this could be problem if you're trying to do the 6 major lives in 1 year and running out of time.  Or, if there's a time limited live where you have to wait another year for it to reappear again.

The hell trainings get gradually harder over the year (with the exception for August, which is by far the hardest). But if you get an idol with some quintet skills (omoide score and burst score, more hearts and chain bonus are pointless since you always have 8 hearts and you most probably won't full combo it anyway), you can easily ex clear the one in January. If you spend the CP you get in more quintet skills and keep your team the same, you should be able to ex clear everything up to July, especially if you help out with burst and maybe omoide lessons. The August Hell Training is much harder, but you should be able to clear it and get the swimsuit as a reward. You should be able to ex clear September as well, after that you'll need higher levels for ex clears, but clears shouldn't be a problem. The hell trainings pretty much trivialize the game though, at least up to B rank (probably A rank as well, don't know about S rank). But they are fun, or rather the song is: Kouhaku Ouen V, the red vs white team song from the Producer Meeting 2016, i love to do the white team calls (including the common calls) while playing it, it reminds me of the New Year Live 2 weeks ago (on both days it was played on screen between a message from Yukiho/Azumin, who wasn't there, and the start of the live, to liven up the crowd, it really was a ton of fun).

As for the tiredness: yes, i know that taking a day off recovers the status, but i was wondering about how it was dropping. I do the same, when it turns yellow and there isn't an SP live i want to do i take a day off, i haven't attempted to get the titles yet. But the number of weeks for it to turn yellow again differs vastly. What esdamibe12 said makes sense though, it matches with my observations. Hell training also seems to be very bad for their mood, which isn't surprising.

@Naryoril

Thanks, again for the advice.  That was helpful.  By the way, did you mean Kouhaku Ouen V came from the producer meeting 2017 and not 2016?  (Sorry, if I recall that wrong).

Anyways, I also liked that song too, so hopefully I'll get through it.  Glad you enjoyed that new years live.  Thanks, for sharing your experience.  Wish, I could have been there. 


(By the way, I get a Deja Vu when you answer some of my questions.  I feel like some of you guys did that for me for the previous console games like during im@s 2.)
