That's impressive.  Congratulations. 

The only thing I've accomplished is getting Chihaya and Miki to S-rank (and seeing all of their communications), and Ex every live in the game including all the DL lives thus far.  (Well, not counting the solo lives for the other idols I didn't S-rank).

Quite the impressive feat, Naryoril. What kept up your perseverance? 220 hours is a lot without automation.
Suddenly, bow-wow-wow~. :3

After some point i simply played one season per day, which takes about 1 hour. You make still good progress that way, without burning yourself out too much.

Promotions also give a great help, it's about 500/600K from A to S grade
I got the paltinum in about 300 hours, but sadly no DLC otfits, only crappy accessories

You are off a 0 there unfortunately. It's 45k for 1 promotion yielding 110k fans (with a 10% fan bonus), so getting from A to S rank is almost 3.7 million.

But yeah, you almost need to make use of that. Personally i farmed the RE:whatever quintet live, it gives a lot of fans and also a lot of money. The costume you get from the solo live after getting Iori to S rank is perfect for farming that live btw, since the image and type match, and it has a 30% money bonus, so the live yields over 19k.

Probably already known, but I'll say it anyways.

Once you have at least 5 hearts, the last memory appeal will occur after the burst sequence.  If you have at least 8 hearts, then the last 2 memory appeals will occur after the burst.  However, if you have 6 or 7 hearts, then you'll still only get 1 memory appeal after the burst.

Does anyone know if theres a way to see your progress to the next producer rank level? I've been on producer rank 14 for about 3 months and I need to get my last default song Watashi wa Idol

I believe Producer rank/unlocking songs is dependent on number of total fans for all the idols combine.  You usually see this number at the end of the day when the game adds in your fans.

It's been awhile, but I think it's around 25 million fans to unlock all the songs.  Fastest way is to do those one time DL lives (not the ones that give you acessories/costume) which give you a ton of fans.

Hi there :), sorry to revive the subject but I have some questions regarding Platinum stars nowadays.

First thanks to everyone, this topic was incredibly helpful when i started the game !

1 ) I've a version come with two code on it, I tried to enter the codes where we insert the codes of Playstation Store cards but without success. I guess they are expired or i miss something ... Can someone help me to clarify this point ?

2 ) Is there any option to skip the "DL Content Focus" each time you come to menu ? I know i can pass it with option button but i dunno if there is something about that in options ?

3 ) Concerning the Tailor , with 5 Gold ticket are all items elligible or only basic content items ?

4 ) On the account stats screen there is a envelope with a line you can select in a dropdown list, as titles in most games.What the point of doing it ?

5 ) For the Valentine achievment do you need to keep the chocolate of each girl , or just have it even if you use it immediatly ?

6 ) I'm used to play "Go my way" and "Ready !!", i read a lot of times that Kiramekirari is the better song to beat the scores.
Is there any block point in the game where you're forced to play "Kiramekirari " ?

7 ) I play on my european account on my european system, i've a japanese account i used to download the catalog and some demo.If i add Yen to account via PS Cards will i be able to buy the dlc ? (It seem yes but i'm not totally sure ^^).

8 ) I actually want to buy some dlc song, more again since i read they are Stella compatible but to be honnest i find them really expensive.Do you know if there have been any reductions in the past on these DLCs ?

9 ) Is there anyone here who continue tu play P.S. ? :) (or even started it recently ^^)

Thanks in advance if you can give me some informations about these point and again sorry to revive the subject  :-[

First as a disclaimer: it's possible i remember incorrectly, it has been a while since i played the game.

1) Hard to say without seeing the actual sheet of paper the code came on. But one of them is probably a concert ticket lottery ticket, iirc platinum stars contained those for the producer meeting. It was an event that was half talk half concert, and with the lottery ticket you could win the right to buy tickets for the event.

2) I don't think so

3) You can get up to A rank costumes from the tailor, the tickets don't contain S rank costumes.

4) Not sure about that, probably for the online rankings.

5) I think you just need to see the event.

6) Kiramekirari makes it easier, you can beat stuff with lower levels than with other songs. The only real challenges are some of the DL lives.

7) Yes, if you buy DLC on your japanese account and install it, you can use the DLC on your european account, i did the same. P drops can only be used on a japanese account however, maybe some other consumables too. The mail DLC, songs and costumes work.

8) I think they have been discounted by 50%

9) I can't speak for others obviously, but i don't.

Thanks for the answers :)

About the code
I received Stella stage (and started it ^^) and the code inside (for a theme) worked on the same tool we use to add yen to our account so i'm now sure these codes are expired , kind of sad ^^.

Actually i only have the S dress from the DL Content, i'm about 10 Gold box but no luck for a S Dress :).
I only have 1 girl at S(lvl 75) for the moment but they all grow really quick ^^.

The DLC Content 1 dress (i love this one ...) really unlocked me for a lot of event ^^.

There is something i never catch , it's the letter you receive in box.
I guess this increase fan or money or "affection/trust" but i never seen any difference.

Someone know the true behind these fan's letters ?

I believe they increase fan count but only a little bit.  (But, you have to use them up in order to get the small bonus)

Of course when i try to focus them they don't drop ^^.
Since last time i've 4 fan's letters dropped.
Each of them was for the leader of the band at drop time (named).
Each of them gave 500 fans.

Small echantillon but it seem it's always 500 fans ^^.

I finally beat the last DL song resisting me , i guess i'm not good at this ahah ^^.
So now i need to A->S the 10 low leveled idols + their events and max the (they are between lvl 55~68 and 550k~750k fans from their S tiers), Lvl10 6-7 base songs and of course loot each S dress/costume (-1) and accessories (the worst part).

I think i'll focus on stella stage once everyone is 99 ^^.
