Nice, we're about the same level I think. I'm comfortable with most 8s and can do quite a few 9s - after that it just starts to become more work and less fun!speedlolita wrote:I've been playing since the release of DistorteD. However, I was playing backups of 9 up until DJ Troopers until Empress via Swap Magic.
I only use a Japanese Konami Official Controller, nothing fancy yet. Play it more on and off now, can clear up to about 8* and some 9*.
I got sucked in to IIDX in a big way when I lived in Japan a few years ago - it's by far the most popular Bemani series, and once I'd tried Happy Sky in the arcades, I had to own it. Spent the rest of the day hunting around Den Den Town for a controller, the only one I could find was a Konami Arcade Style controller for 20,000 yen, so I came home with this massive great thing and copies of 8th and Red to get practising on. Great times
