Hey there, everyone! I admit I read through this entire thread and found everything said quite helpful. However, there is one thing I need help with...
...and that is that when I select Story Mode, I'm given four options. I assume one of them is to get back to producing your idol (the top option), one of them is to start producing a new idol (second option?), and one of them deletes your ENTIRE PROGRESS and makes you start from the very beginning.
I don't know which one this is, and I can't seem to remember it.
But TWICE now, I've accidentally erased everything because I can't read kanji, or katakana, or hiragana, so I had no clue what I was saying. And one of those times was after unlocking Hibiki and her Extend costume after successfully producing Makoto all the way to Rank S.
Yay me! Let's get started on Haruka now.
...hm, is this the right one?
...it's giving me another text box. Something is wrong.
I'll just select yes...? Let's see, now I just have to--WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL MY SAVE DATA?! FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU--
As you can see, this makes me mad. At least the second time I did it, I wasn't as far, but it still infuriated me. Can anyone just tell me which option it is that deletes all your data, so I know to avoid it forever? I doubt I'll ever need it. Unless I WANT to restart everything after a successful produce to Rank S again. Yay.
Ah, also, one more thing: I think I saw someone saying it was possible to just restart the final IU auditions, at the very end of the game. Is that true? Because I've also gotten all the way to the very end, then passed the first two IUs (purely by luck, seriously) and failed the last one. I was then re-set all the way to the beginning. For all idols.
I'm beginning to get frustrated by the effect my lack of Japanese knowledge has on this game.
Anyways, any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
