Do UNIT skills only increase the units abilities if they're in a certain formation?

So basically does a DUO UNIT skill only affect a character if they're in a DUO?

Yes.

More questions.

1. Do the non-leader abilities on the board have an effect on the scoring in a unit?  Or, is it only the leader's abilities that  counts?

For example, my leader is Chihaya, but I have Miki as the duo unit.  So, if I have Miki learn duo abilities, will those effect the duo unit scoring?  Or, does not work that way?  (And, I need Chihaya to learn those duo abilities instead?) 

2. What does leveling up a song do?  In platinum stars, it increases your score for your chain combo.  But, there's no chain combo in this game, so I was wondering what does leveling a song do?

1. LEADER abilities work only if the girl is a leader.
UNIT abilities work no matter the girl's position.
For your example, all Chihaya's abilities (both UNIT and LEADER) will work, while for Miki only her UNIT abilities will do.

2. It increases the score for Full Chain (+50 per level I think) and scratching (can't tell the exact numbers, but it's very noticeable between level 1 and level 10)

@darkthunder and Nakiame

Thank you for answering my questions.  Probably will have a few more later on.

[spoiler]I'd say there's a 50% of chance that she will tbh, this is basically a Project Fairy 2.0: we can produce a rival at a game right at the end of a era even though you couldn't really produce Project Fairy, you were still able to use them in S4U! and they were confirmed in the story to join 765, which made her appearance in 2nd Vision as 765 idols not seem like something that appeared out of nowhere. Considering SS is what PS should've been, we can count it as the final transition between 2nd Vision and the upcoming 3rd Vision, with lets Scamco with a story reboot excuse to be able to add Shika into the main cast.
Even though with her being Kuroi's daughter, they'll need to be very careful with how they treat her backstory if they plan to make her a main character. They can't confirm her as the daughter of the rival production's president in her original appearance and then have her working for 765 in the next games, and they can't ignore this fact either as she being Kuroi's daughter is basically the whole plot twist in her original game appearance, and one of her main reasons to be. If she wasn't Kuroi's daughter she'd be another Leon: a good rival, but a rival that doesn't really stand out when it comes to character development. With this, she does really stand out when compared to the rest of 961's past idols.[/spoiler]
[spoiler]Actually the way they push Shika in the story of each idol is too strong. Even if Shika doesn't join 765 she will be somewhere in the franchise.[/spoiler]

1. Does it matter which song I pick in terms of scoring?  In platinum stars, high beat songs get you more points through chain combo.  So, is there something like that here, or are all songs pretty much equal.

2.  Sorry, how do I turn off encore again?  Unless someone already did a quick menu translate in the options.

3. In the first unpaid promotion, it seems the perfect is random among the choices.  Like, I pick one choice and get a bad.  But, I pick the same choice and get a perfect?  Why is this so?

1. Kosmos on debut is bugged and gives you abnormaly hight score. All other songs seem to be the same score-wise.
3. Perfect choice is always different and depends on your idol's mood. You have to pay close attention to your idol's behaviour to get it right, she gives you a hint. It's kinda hard to guess on your first try, but once you memorize the pattern you can get perfect 100% of the time.

[spoiler]Been playing since SP but I have never seen Kuroi as horrible but more to stupid, harsh and egoistic. He is just too fixated on Takagi. All the past rival got harsh treatment from Kuroi but he is really soft on Shika though he is quite a horrible father.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]I DID notice he was a lot easier on her than he was on Project Fairy in SP and Jupiter in 2. But aside from that,
like I said, I have no doubts that he sucks at the whole parenting thing. I just enjoy amusing myself with stupid mental images and making Kuroi look even dumber than he actually is.

Just started playing this game.  I know a lot people use chat groups to ask questions about the game.  But, sometimes the answers get lost and difficult to find.  So, I'll try to post questions here so that everyone can benefit.

I might ask too many questions.  Please, bear with me.  I don't know much Japanese.  But, I appreciate all the help you can give me.


1. Does it matter which song I pick in terms of scoring?  In platinum stars, high beat songs get you more points through chain combo.  So, is there something like that here, or are all songs pretty much equal.


2.  Sorry, how do I turn off encore again?  Unless someone already did a quick menu translate in the options.

3. In the first unpaid promotion, it seems the perfect is random among the choices.  Like, I pick one choice and get a bad.  But, I pick the same choice and get a perfect?  Why is this so?
1. It seems like it doesn't differ much

2. Should be first in Option menu.

3. Sometime 3 choice are bad and another 1 will be perfect/good. Sometime 2 is bad, 1 normal and 1 perfect/good.
