All character based unlocks are obtained by having the idol in your unit so you can get all of those former DLC costumes as gifts in 3 playthroughs if you add a bit of variety to your units.
Beyond the Stars however requires you to use the 3 as leaders, hence why you can't obtain and use it in your first 3 playthroughs.
Roger. Thanks, fixed the info in that one post @.@

How do I upload photo's that I've taken from the game onto my PC? I have a USB stick and copied to the Save data onto it and tried to open on my computer but that doesn't seem to be the way to do it.

Edit:
Forgot to mention I'm on the PS3 version of the game.

The save data probably only holds the information for the game engine to reproduce the image; A computer can't read that properly. You probably need a capture card to take a screenshot.

So that's why the files in the PHOTODATA folder were showing up as .PHT files? Is there no program that can open those kind of files?

Win 100,000 fans in any area (except Tokyo) and then win the 歌姫・歌王子 Festival that appears to get one of the general awards (differs per area).

To get the IA Grand Prix award, have at least one song in the top 10 on the charts, and have 300,000 fans. The fans part should be cake if you're winning the other awards. As for getting in the top 10 in the charts, well...follow any of the strategies posted in this topic, pretty much. If you can make it into the top 20 by week 8 (or at any point before your last release, really) getting a song into the top 10 should come pretty effortlessly.

Thanks! :)

Also, I think I have all the stages, but I don't have the stage that's on the yacht when you go to the IA qualification party. Are you able to get that stage?

I know that's a stage on the 360 version of S4U and it shows up for Lives/Festivals, so you should be able to unlock it.

There's in the 360 version 34 stages. No new ones have been added supposedly, so you're at least 2 down.

I have a question!  Couldn't seem to find any information even when searching in Japanese...

I bought the mail pack.  Sometimes after reading an email, a little pink cell phone icon with a heart in the middle appears on the left side of the status bar section that appears in the top right of the game screen.  Anybody have an idea of what that does?

Mail Boost. Supposed to increase Voltage gain or something, but it doesn't really do anything on the XBox360 version. At least, the gain is so small, it doesn't do anything.

On the PS3 version, it supposedly gives you a Voltage bonus when you Memory Appeal. Maybe it does this in the XBox360 version, I never checked.

Has anyone gotten the special amulet from the RK scenario and figured out what it does? I can't read Japanese very well, and I can't puzzle out what the wiki says about it, except for something about using all three girls and changing Burst Appeals in some way.

Ryuuguu no Tsukai amulet burst

I don't know what that burst is called in technicality, though. And I don't know if the amulet does anything besides allowing you to use that burst. XD

It seems to increase voltage from regular appeals as well, now that I look at it again. Seems unverified how large the increase is, though.

I need to finish my playthrough so I can get it and check it out, I guess. I wonder if it changes which appeals you get during the Burst, or if it still uses the appeal spread for whichever girl you have selected at the time.
