Beatmania IIDX, (two dee ecks) Is a game developed by Bemani, maker of DDR, keyboardmania, Drummania, Guitar freaks, and most recently, Jubeat. In all sense, its a DJ simulating game.
Beatmania IIDX's controller is similar to a Pianos, It has 7 Piano keys (beatmania 1 just had 5), 4 being white and the other 3 being black. In addition to the 7 keys is a Scratch pad, which you turn.
^ A standard Home consle IIDX controller.
Beatmania IIDX has spawned 16 Arcade versions and 14 Consle releases, all for PS2.

1: Go to http://bms.bemaniso.ws/
(Offical files) or.. Google: "IIDX Simfiles"

4: After that, go to "LR2 CONFIG" in the LR2 folder and create an account.
5: Go to the jukebox tab and drag the "songs" folder you made into the white box.
6: Click playHow to play LR2
1: Main keys are: z,s,x,d,c,f,v, and shift (Shift is turntable)
(my LR2, with a modded theme.)
2: The red bar under the keys is the "Groove gauge". Similar to any music game life bar. But instead, you cannot "Fail" a song unless its under 80% at the end of the song. Which means; If you play a song like crap at the beggining and you do the end flawlessly, you can still pass.
3: If you hold space during the song selection, it brings up your Modifier menu. Here, you can set Hidden, sudden, ect.
Thats it basically. If you have any probelm with LR2 or any beatmania question in general, ask here.
