Title: List some things you've noticed in Platinum Stars that people may have missed.
Post by: Miki Fan on August 06, 2016, 10:54:58 pm
List some things you've noticed in Platinum Stars that people may have missed.

- If you don't press anything at the title screen, it will take you to a concert where it introduces the idols as they are performing.

-The Timing Adjustment in this game is called "Rehearsal" and it will additionally show the idol doing some dance as you are pressing circle.

-You can actually pause in the middle of a concert and can choose to restart if you messed up.  You don't have to wait until the song is finished or have to go to the PS4 menu.

-The lip-syncing during the songs has improved more when compared to other idolmaster games.

-Idols' breasts actually bounces during the concerts.

This was already in OfA, take a look at M@sterpiece...


Anyway, this is something i didn't notice myself, but someone brought to my attention and i think it's a really neat detail:

The light of the PS4 controller changes color according to who is your leader, but only on stage.

The ranking system from OFA was slightly expanded upon and moved to part of the in game menu instead of the main menu. You can now view top PVs by leader idol fan count. Although note if it's a DLC song you don't own it won't show the full video.

You can change it during lives and S4Us by pressing the R2 and L2 buttons. The colors cycle through depending on who's currently on stage.

I've figured how to revert back to the standard appeal noise, if anyone really doesn't want to use one of the character sounds for whatever reason. It hasn't been mentioned, so I figured I would.

Go to your 765 Pad, then to the options menu and go down the one that has アピール in it(the 6th one down).
Then cycle through how ever many you have until you see デフォルト. That sets it back to the default aka no special appeal noise.

That's still an appeal noise, it's just the default one, i don't want any sound effect at all when pressing one of these buttons. The only way to do that i have found so far is to lower the sound effect volume to 0. Although i set it to 10, since it affects all sound effects in the menu. With 10 they can still be heard, but usually not on stage since the music is too loud there.

Is it possible to set the audio options to 0? I thought it stopped at 1.

Okay I've noticed two more things.

1) In the morning scene, before you go to the office menu screen(where you choose to do lessons and lives and other tasks), you know how sometimes you see a DL live intro scene instead of a normal morning scene?  Well keep on exiting to the title screen from the office menu screen, not by pressing the home button, and keep reloading your file until you finish cycling through all the DL live intros (there should only be 2 right now).  Afterwards, then just reload the game again and then you will get your normal morning scene with the idol.

2) In the office menu screen (where you choose to do lessons and lives and other tasks), if you press R3, it will clear out the menu so you can see clearly what the idols are doing on the screen.  When you're done watching, just simply press R3 again to bring back the menu.

Some songs were missed...

1. Here We Go!! - This song hasn't been since THE iDOLM@STER 2! It is in my opinion one of the best arcade songs. It's really cute!
2. Aoi Tori - It has been in Shiny TV. I love this song.
3. Taiyou no Jealousy - Same as Aoi Tori
4. Ohayou!! Asagohan - One of the best Yayoi songs!
5. First Stage

Okay, I just happened to press the right button on the directional pad when the note I should have had to press was O, and it still gave me a perfect for it. I then tried continuing to do this for more notes and it works fine. You don't need to press any of the face buttons when they appear. Down on the directional pad still triggers appeals, too. The only time you have to press the face buttons is for the double notes.
Apparently this is a rhythm game thing. Very well then.

Tested it out, it does make songs with rapidly alternating notes like Jibun Restart on Master much easier. You don't have to stress your thumb or turn your controller. So that helps.

Actually, all of those songs were neither in Idolmaster 2 nor in OFA.

All songs, exept Here we go!! came back only on Shiny TV. Ohayou!! Asagohan came back both in Shiny Festa and Shiny TV. It still sucks they didn't make a come back on Platinum Stars.

1) You know how those DL intros replaces those morning scenes and you to go through all of them so you can see the morning scene?  Well to make it go faster, you can press the option button to skip the DL intros and dialogue, and then repeat until you get the normal morning scene.

2) If you press R3 in S4U and in the activity menu where you can change outfits and songs, it will remove the menu so you can see the background clearly.  As I said before, this also works in the normal office menu.

3) If you go to the S4U from the normal office menu, not from the title screen, and then exit it will auto save.  So be careful in case you didn't want to save the game.

4) When you pick a new song you never used before and when use it in a concert, your leader will say something before singing.  However, afterwards if you use that same song your leader will say nothing and will immediately sing the song.  So your leader will only say something for a song never used before.

5) For the Medley concerts, you leader will say one of the two different lines before singing.  I think which of the two lines they say is random, but correct me if I'm wrong.

6) By pressing the left bottom corner on the touch pad during S4U or encores, you will have more options for the camera during concerts.

A question. Is there a way to remove or disable those DL intros?  I don't like it how it replaces those morning scenes and the only way to see it is to go through all of the DL intros as I explained before.

The scenes don't seem to appear anymore after you ex cleared the A rank DL live.


@Topic: The trickster type costumes from the first DL live can be used for shiny star type events. You see the smile in the costume selection, but after going back to the overview the smile isn't there, and when starting the live, you get a prompt warning you about the wrong type, nevertheless, you get points as if it were a shiny star costume.

Idk if this counts, but there's a glitch in Honey Heartbeat where the audio messes up.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSoABUzHGfg

On the first syllable of Shanketsu at around :35 or so, the audio glitches so it sounds like multiple girls are singing when it's a solo line. It's not a glitch in idolmaster 2 as far as I can tell.

The trickster type costume of the first DL live gives full points for lives which ask for shiny star type. When selecting the costume, you see a smile, but in the overview screen there is no smile. You also get a prompt where you need to confirm whether you want to really start the live with the wrong costume type. Nevertheless, you get the same amount of points as if you were using a shiny star costume.

The music that plays when you're picking a new idol is the same one that plays during Idolm@ster 2 selection screen.  It was pretty nostalgic.

It appears if you press the wrong face button during a combo (but pressed at the right time) the game gives you less points for that note but keeps your combo chain.  I know I pressed the wrong button on some notes but my chain kept going.


If you Ex clear a live, your idols will do other things like bowing to the audience at the end.

To be precise: it counts as "normal", so you only get half the points and the chain keeps going, but the burst bonus will be broken.

-During the make-up lessons where you have to match the icons on the screen.  You can press the home button to pause the game so you can quickly write down the icons before they flip over.

--You can use outfits that give more hearts or memory appeals to give you an extra die in those dice minigames . This can still work even if the leader isn't the correct rank for that outfit.

Writing it down may work for level one lesson.  But, once you get to level 3 lesson the only way is to take a picture on your phone since they are way too many tiles to write down. And, of course using the home button to buy you some time as you trying to see what color they want from your tiles.

The way I do it is I memorize the ones that have less on the screen, since they usually ask for the ones that don't have a lot.

If they do ask for the one with a lot, just pick the ones you didn't memorize.

For each type of burst (like idol specific burst, Solo Burst 3, Duo Burst 1, Duo Burst 2, Triple Burst 1, Triple Burst 2, etc, etc.) there's a different burst sequence.  So, there's a lot of burst sequences you can view in this game.

You can also view them in the Stage 4 you by equipping the corresponding outfit and bursting on stage (unfortunately you can't wear whatever you want if you want to see a specific burst with a different outfit).  Another problem is that you need to equip an accessory or something to give you the necessary charge level.  So, for example, even though it's just Stage for You I need to equip something like the tiara if I want to view a duo burst or triple burst.  Otherwise, it will just go to the default idol specific burst if you just wear the outfit and have no equipment for charge level.  So, I can't wear just the outfit only if I want to see a different burst sequence unless I equip an accessory for charge level.

Keep in mind that you don't have to build charge level (using memories) in Stage for you to see things like Duo or triple Burst.  You can just burst right away and see it.

I hope I said everything correctly.

When doing that sliding motion on the touch pad for a certain note.  You can start swiping your fingers on the touch pad well before the note hits the target and it will still count as a perfect.

Btw it won't break a combo even if you don't swipe the touchpad at all.

I know this is really obvious but when your idols come back from a live, if it's still daylight then you get a random scene with them in their camp outfit.  Like welcoming you (only for idols you didn't use) or them doing something with each other.  But, if they come back during the night, then you'll get a random scene with them in their pajamas.

Whether your idols come back during the day or evening seems random, nonetheless.

In the arena stages, the dynamic camera sometimes zooms out to where you see the audiences waving their light sticks, but the idols themselves appear small.

So, if you prefer concert lives where the dynamic camera just focuses on the idols, then you'll have to do the non-arena stages.

I think you can just manipulate the camera by using the zoom-out or zoom-in(pressing down or up) whenever the auto camera zooms out to the audience.

I noticed by doing promotions you'll get the idol to come back at night only.  I think the same goes for lessons too.  Just a small trivia.



I also noticed during stage for you, that you can't toggle the dynamic camera as you could in One for All.  Like, in One for All, during certain parts of the song you can press right to toggle between views.  But, it doesn't seem like you could do this in Platinum Stars, so it's kind of like Idolm@ster 2 in that aspect.  Of course, in Platinum Stars you have another camera mode where the camera moves towards the idol at different angles.

Likely, already known.  But, if you want to remove the hat in certain outfits, then just wear another head accessory.  You can do it in stage for you too.
