Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Arcade: ver.B
Location tests for ver.B will begin at the following 3 arcades from tomorrow, 2012/06/08 (Fri).

Players wishing to participate in the tests should take note of the following points:
  • An IC card that has been used for ver.B will not be able to play on any ver.A cabinets again.
  • New DIVA.NET features will only be available for cards that have switched over to ver.B and will otherwise be invisible

The following new features will be rolled out for ver.B:
  1. Rival feature
    • After registering someone as a rival on DIVA.NET, players will be able to see their rivals' statistics (such as scores and completion rates) directly in-game.
    • The other player must acknowledge the rivalry for the function to work.
  2. PV Screenshot feature
    • While in PV mode, players will be able to snap up to 8 screenshots per song.
    • Out of these 8, players can choose 1 to be saved to DIVA.NET.
    • Players can then access DIVA.NET to directly download the screenshot. This will cost 30 VP per download.
      • This feature will only be available to players using the Aime service (via IC card or phone).
      • DIVA.NET will only save the latest 3 screenshots. Older ones will be deleted as new ones are saved.
  3. Other features
    • A random selection option has been added for both song and module selection.
    • EXCELLENT has been added as a song grading.
      • This addition will cause the biggest change to existing gameplay.
      • The minimum clear completion rate has been revised to be same for both song 1 and song 2 (players no longer have to score 10% higher for song 2).
      • Since EXCELLENT will now be a gold-colored clear, GREAT has been downgraded to a silver-colored clear (STANDARD is still bronze and PERFECT is still golden with star).
      • Due to the addition of EXCELLENT CLEAR TRIAL, the following standard will be adopted for existing IC cards:
        • If PERFECT TRIAL has been cleared, EXCELLENT TRIAL will automatically be cleared and the player will receive the reward for EXCELLENT TRIAL without having to do anything.
        • If a song meets the clear percentage for EXCELLENT, its rating will be upgraded from GREAT to EXCELLENT automatically.
        • If a song is perfected but does not meet the clear percentage for EXCELLENT, it will still be graded as PERFECT because PERFECT is a higher rating.
        • The following clear percentages will be required for EXCELLENT rating:
          • EASY: 85% NORMAL: 85% HARD: 90% EXTREME: 95%
    • On DIVA.NET, players can toggle whether they want the GREAT and/or EXCELLENT clear rating to be displayed on their completion rate gauge in-game. If enabled, it will mark out on the gauge the amount needed to reach the respective clear rating.
    • Players with a Twitter account can link it to their DIVA.NET account. While playing the game, when certain conditions are met, tweets will automatically be sent.
    • New DIVA AC cabinets will receive an overhaul in design. Module change ♪
      • The new cabinets will be clear with a white base. The designer is Tripshots.
    • Various BGMs have also been changed, such as when the cabinet is not being played, when credits are added, when a song is cleared, etc.

Plans for 3rd Song Submission Contest!

[INTRODUCTION]
The format of the contest this time has been drastically altered from previous ones, so interested parties please read carefully.
The main attraction this time is that selected songs will not only appear on Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Arcade, but also be featured on a new compilation CD, "V ♥ 25".
More information on V ♥ 25 can be found here.

[INFORMATION]
The aim of this contest is to gather PVs to be added to the rhythm game "Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Arcade".
The PVs will be created with the help of the "VOCALOID2" software which is wholly owned by Crypton Future Media, Inc.
In other words, entries utilizing KAITO and MEIKO voice banks will not be accepted for this contest.
Duration: 2011/10/07 (Fri) ~ 2011/11/30 (Wed)
Vocaloids: Hatsune Miku (+Append), Kagamine Rin/Len (+Append), Megurine Luka
Format: Instead of just a song and illustrations, submissions now need to include a complete PV to go along with the song.
PV Size: 720p (1280 x 720 pixels, 30 frames per second).
Song Length: Between 2 min 30 sec to 3 min 00 sec (2 min 40 sec recommended).

[HOW TO ENTER]
Unlike previously, there will be no special submission page. All submissions are to be uploaded to Nico Nico Douga normally.
  1. The names of all creators (consequently, rights owners) should be entered into the description of the upload.
  2. Submissions should be tagged "DIVA-AC_vl25作品募集" to qualify.
Note that if the tag is removed after the submission deadline, the song will still be disqualified from entry.

[DETAILS]
  1. Entries judged to be more suitable to rhythm gaming, will be given higher priority in being chosen.
    • This time, no preference will be given for fast songs.
  2. Neither professional nor amateur entries will be limited in their choice of genres.
  3. Songs that are already available publicly can be submitted when all the conditions below are fulfilled:
    • The submitter is the creator of the song.
    • The song has not been used by any other companies in contests, etc.
    • All rights to the song are retained by the submitter.
      • If copyrights to the song are being held by entities such as JASRAC, the entry will not be entertained.
      • Similarly, remixes of existing songs will not be accepted due to copyright infringements unless the creator releases the remix as an entry.

[RESULTS]
Results for this contest will be announced on the Hatsune Miku Project DIVA homepage and the V ♥ 25 website around the middle of December 2011.

New Rules for April's Contest & New Songs Arriving in May!

The 1st Difficulty Sum Total Contest begins tomorrow (28th April)!
  • Duration: 2011/04/28 (Thu) ~ 2011/05/08 (Sun)
  • Scoring: Total completion rate of 4 songs
  • Courses: Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced
  • Conditions:
    • Beginner: At least ★16 total difficulty stars across 4 songs.
    • Intermediate: At least ★22 total difficulty stars across 4 songs.
    • Advanced: At least ★30 total difficulty stars across 4 songs.
  • Rules:
    • Beginner: ★1~5 difficulty songs
    • Intermediate: ★4~7 difficulty songs
    • Advanced: ★6~9 difficulty songs
  • Rewards:
    • Beginner silver reward skin: のびりんちゅう (BLUE) designed by もっさん
    • Intermediate silver reward skin: Urban Silhouette (BLUE) designed by Tripshots
    • Advanced silver reward skin: Machines (BLUE) designed by Deino

This contest introduces a new rule. While aiming for the bronze/silver/gold rewards as usual, the choice of songs plays an important role since it is essential to fulfill the minimum total difficulty stars.
For example, on the beginner course, a player can aim for a total of ★16 by going for 1+5+5+5=16 across 4 songs to clear the condition, but all grading will still be judged only by completion percentage alone.
Picking a ★1 song as the first song will also cause the song selection screen to only display ★5 songs thereafter to make sure that the player fulfills the condition even if a wrong choice was accidentally made.

Notice from DIVA.NET

This is for players participating in the location tests for ver.A REV1.
The 1st Difficulty Sum Total Contest will proceed on both ver.A and ver.A REV1.
However, because of version differences, an incomplete course on one version cannot be resumed on the other.
Therefore, please complete the whole course before switching to another version.
Also, the rewards for each course are only attainable once regardless of version.

New songs coming in May!

These 5 new songs are picked from the 2nd Song Submission Contest.
They will only be added once ver.A REV1 is operational, which appears to be in mid-May.

  • マスターオプパペッツ
  • Pane dhiria
  • ほしをつくるひと
  • So much loving you★ -DIVA Edit-
  • ジュゲムシーケンサー

The new notecharts are said to introduce a new style.
There are also plans to update demo videos before the songs become playable.
